News: 10/5/12 - All new members are REQUIRED to fill out the signature section of your profile. Otherwise, you may be deleted from the forum. This is to help me determine if you are a member or if you are a spammer. Thank you.

9/22/12 - I ask that you please add a signature line to your profiles on the Cletrac Forum to help me to determine who is spam and who is not. You don't need to drop everything and do this immediately, but please do it when you get a minute and you are visiting the forum. Just go to http://cletrac.org/forum2010/index.php?action=profile and put something in the signature area. If you no longer want to be a member on the Cletrac Forum, please remove your membership.

8/10/11 - Added a new board: Trucking and Hauling

5/30/11 - Just added several new pictures to the Photo Gallery, including several Alfta Track OC-4 working in snow logging, several from the Chicago Road Show, and some from a logging show (not all Oliver/Cletrac). All these pictures are from around 1963 and were scanned from old slides given to me by my late friend John W. Davis. Go to the Photo Gallery and click on "NEW" to see these pictures. Quality is marginal, but I think you will enjoy them.

2/13/11 - Just added a new board "New members introduce yourselves here".

Folks, I just added a new photo gallery where you can upload your own pictures with descriptions, etc. Right now this is in the beta testing stage to see how it works out. Give it a try, but please keep a backup copy of your pictures just in case we decide to use something else. I would prefer you use your real name on the photo gallery, but if you really don't want to, please use the same username as on the forum. Please put your images into the proper categories and take care when your write out your descriptions and image names so people can search for them. I am learning this as we go. At least at the beginning, I have it set up where the administrator has to approve members. I am afraid we may get porn spam in here if we leave it open. To get to the photo gallery, use this link: http://cletrac.org/photos/

Folks, when you join the forum, or when you get the chance to update your Profile, please be sure to put your location and interests. Filling out your signature would help as well. I've been getting some spammers joining and posting links to sites that are completely unrelated to Cletrac or Oliver, or anything to do with tractors. It would make it easier for me, as well as all the other members, if you guys would put your location and interest in your profile. See http://cletrac.org/forum2010/index.php?topic=1299.msg5184#msg5184

Thanks,
Administrator

There are at least 6 different issues of "Cletrac Facts" on Ebay right now. I would love to have them, but they are way too much for me to buy. Here's the link http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... %3AIT&rd=1

PLEASE! If you are the winner, please let me scan them in high resolution to put on the site so everyone can download them for printing.

Thanks,

Blake

Has anyone else bought one of the "Ultimate Cletrac Photo Books" off E-bay? I just bought one a while back and i'm currently waiting it's arrival. All I have to say is, it better be worth $36.

I bought a copy of that book a while back and it is ok. I think it's a compilation of mostly factory photos, some of which I have already put on this site.

Yeah, it said that it was in black and white so that would be the one.

I was hoping that I could get enough out of it to figure out what year I have. Oh well, if nothing else it will be neat to look at the pictures. :?

Yes. It's not a bad deal at all for the book. Everyone should have one.

Stick with Walter's advice. One of my boys got one for me several years ago. Landis had pointed some of the items out before but a lot of those pictures are experiment tractors and things shown on some of the pictures never made it in production. The OC-9 shown and the OC4 with a 4 cylinder DIX diesel come to mind real quick, but it is good to look at.

This guy keeps posting more "Cletrac Facts" brochures on ebay. They keep going too high though.

I wonder where he is getting them?

So did anyone on here ever bid on these? I see they are back up for bid and the price has dropped. Only two people have made bids so far. And they bid on different books. I looked at them but it looks like its all early Cletrac and nothing concerning my model.
