My name is Ken Wright from Charlton in Victoria, Australia.
I have just purchased 2 BDH loaders,
1.Painted yellow with Oliver imprinted on the radiator, this crawler had an 8 ft blade and the Hercules motor. It had spacers about 2 inches wide each side to spread the tracks out further.
2.Painted orange but has cletrac on the id plate, with Oliver imprinted on the radiator, this crawler was narrower in the tracks so as to take the loader configeration with 4 stage rams. The badge on the side says Queensbridge Motors, they were agents for Oliver Machinery. Is there any other crawler configeration that had the frame setup outside the tracks?
Queensbridge Motors were agents for Oliver tractors and crawlers in Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania, so we suspect that they made the loader up themselves or had some other company make it up.
