Push like f**k, Parts are a PITA in Europe.... European machines where made in Belgium I think, yank machines are slightly different.

John deere earthmoving machines new series from my parts not seen, the one I mentioned above I think was from the 60s / 70s was in use by a company that carried out surveys, drilling wells, they used it to trace roads paths in the countryside to access the machines and equipment for drilling wells and drilling, in terms of weight and dimensions I think it is similar to fiat fl6-FL8, I remember it was a bit slow as the tracked vehicles of the time but powerful and with good driving force and good traction, it climbs along the endii and the embankments to create ramps and tracks, they used it as a crane and forklift to transport the equipment and pipes of the auger to agricultural yards in the countryside. what do you think of it as an engine and reliability?
