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

I live in England, got interested in Cletrac's when I brought an Oliver BD in 2001, I now have an Oliver BD a Cletrac BDH and another BDH for parts and have just brought a 1919 model H. I also have a british built Track Marshall 90.  Always keen to hear from fellow collectors.

I'm not an expert by any means on military tractors, but there were basically two: the MG-1 and MG-2. The MG-1 was a bomber nurser that had an air compressor and generator for starting and servicing airplanes. It could also tow them.

I hope this helps.

My gramps Howard van Driest was Experimental Engineer at Cletrac and Oliver Corporation. After the plant closed, he and my uncle started an excavating business, initially using Cletrac and Oliver Crawler tractors.

The M 2 was a 7 ton Highspeed tractor used to two heavy bombers.  8510 were built. the tracks had removable rubber pads that could be quickly changed with the track on the machine. It used a Hercules WXLC3 engine of 404 cu in and 150 Hp.

Is there a track interchange listing?
What models shared tracks?

all i know is that the military rubber tracks wont fit anything else that is what ive been told. they are a continous belt just like half-track tracks so when they brake you are done driving it since no one supposidly makes new ones i may be interested in the tracks if they are good. or would be really interested if they were new and kept out of the weather and sun light. this is why i am buying up lots of them because i dont want to put money into one and only get to drive it for a couple of hours and then ow darn my track broke. id like to see if steel tracks would fit but i think they would tare up the boggy wheels since they are rubber. do any others use ruber boggy wheels?hopefully i will get some pictures with my postings soon when i get time baby has been keeping me buisy besides all of my other hobbies.

That post was ages ago and I cant remember where I saw the add. Could some of companys who repair industrial conveyors not repair the rubber track. Also what about the chances and its a long shot! that one of the tracks off a modern rubber tracked machine might fit, eg. the ones fitted to diggers. Sam
