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 am working on a book on crawlers and dozers that will have a chapter on Cletrac and Oliver.  I t will include a table of all Cletrac models with basic specs - years made, HP, weight, engine model.  I have everything nailed down except for the MG-1, MG-2, and MG-3.  Anyone have the specs for these models?

Do you have any information of the Military Cletracs built by John Deere. I am also a member of the 2-Cylinder club and in one of the magazine there was a picture of a military Cletrac going down the Deere assembly line. What all is your book going to cover?

The book covers Caterpillar (1950-1980), Cletrac and Oliver, Deere, Eimco, Euclid and Terex and International Harvester, and other less well known makes, along with chapters on wheel dozers and blade manufacturers.  Each chapter will be about 20 pages with most models illustrated, most in color. It is the second volume of "Classic Vintage Crawlers and Dozers" by myself and Don Heimburger, which is available now. Like Volume I, there will be tables for all models with the basic specs.  I try to make each book very well illustrated PLUS lots of data and information on each machine.

Roger, if you are writing anything about American Tractor Co., Terratrac, or Case, you might want to go to this link of information I wrote a while back.

Please do provide credit for anything you use in your book.

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.

Blake,
Thanks for the tip.  Unfortunately, Volume I which is in print, includes American Tractor and Case, along with Allis-Chalmers and Caterpillar to 1949.  
By the way, I think your website is excellent.  You've obviously put a lot of thought and effort into it.
