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

What all are they featuring Bob? I know they're featuring Gravely, but anything else? I'm thinking of going at least one day.

I had a great time at the National Pike show on Saturday. Between Bob's FDE, the other Cletracs and construction equipment, and the featured Gravelys, there was much to see. I saw a lot of old friends and met some new ones too. I hope all who attended had a great time.

I decided to go to the National Pike show at the last minute - I took a buddy's Gravely to sell, and a bunch of Gravely parts.  Sorry I missed you guys -  Blake, Bob and Dadjon.

I attended because it was the Gravely Tractor Club's annual Mow-In, held in conjunction with the National Pike Steam show, and had a great time. 

I obviously didn't do my homework, or I would have realized the show was way more than Gravely's and would have been in touch with you guys about meeting up there.  As soon as I drove in the gate, it dawned on me - and I did look around to see if I could recognize Blake.   In retrospect, I did see Bob's FDE in action on top of the dirt pile! 

Doh!

Yeah, When Blake told me you were there too, I knew I had missed a great opportunity...  We'll make it happen another time.

Meanwhile, I've got some work to do - the '45 AG-6 was out in the woods doing some trail work with me a couple of weeks ago, and one track came off the rear sprocket.  It happened once before, and I was able to do a field repair, but this time is being a bit more of a challenge.  Not on level ground, and not a lot of room to work in.  I have got to break loose the adjusting nuts - both tracks are way too loose
