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

1942 MG1 Cletrac came in our scrap yard. Could anyone tell me if we should keep it or cut it up? It is totally complete and has been sitting in a hedge row of a farmers for Many years. Tracks look good etc. Everything seems to be there. Generator, toolbox etc. It would be a shame to see the boys scrap her.[/b]

anyone know what a MG1 (Complete) is worth? My brother is threating to put it in the long steel pile and scrap it because its in the way. He's giving me until Wednesday to either find it a home or its going. If anyone is intrested PLEASE let me know. Also, I think a tub of stuff that came from the same place we picked up the Cletrac may be some kind of attachments. Not real sure<>

I'm sure you'll get an answer, but it may take a few days because of the holiday weekend, and because there aren't too many military collectors on here.

Whatever it is worth, it is definitely more than it's worth in scrap, so you won't be losing out by holding onto it for a while.

You're also free to advertise it on the classifieds on this site.

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.

I left a message at the phone number listed in the Classified Ad.  I have a couple of questions regarding the machine.

Thanks,
