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

Bob Burkhouse pulling his 1950 Cletrac AD diesel tractor at the Williams Grove steam show in Williams Grove, Pennsylvania on September 5, 2009. Cletracs and Oliver tractors were the featured manufacturer this year. This was our first time at this show and we were really impressed at the enthusiasm and multitude of exhibits, and the fact that activities were going on well into the night. Bob pulled the tractor near 10 pm, and there were still more to go, and still hundreds of people around. See cletrac.org

Videos are awsome. I saw this cletrac on the trailer in the parking lot at Williams Grove. If I would have known he was going to pull it I would have stayed to watch. I had to leave because of work, it was a 3 1/2 hour drive home.

Well it was just by luck that we were there for the pull. We went out to supper with Tim Sharp and the Severances, and got out of the restaurant around 9 pm or so and planned to just go back to the motel. But I said, "well, let's just swing by the grounds and see if anything is still going on." Anyway, there was still lots of activity and they were having fun pulls, so Bob ran and grabbed the AD and went for it.

Hi Bob,
I just noticed the post you left about talking to me at the Brownsville show. We may have talked , I talk pretty much to any one at the show. Were you the guy with the Cletrac A pulling the scraper?  I asked the guy his name but I am terrible remembering names.

I was the one driving the tractor pulling the scraper. The guy with the orange shirt on the scraper was Tim Hoskinson.

I don't know what tractor was a fleetline 77 on a cletrac uc. Blake has an experimental "OC6" that is an HG with a 77 engine ( if I remember correctly) but there are no pics of it I know of.
