Re: CMN Photo Competition November 2015

Re: 631k

Hi Dave,

Same front frame on a 651E and 657E, the serial number prefix are 89Z for a 51 and 90Z for a 57.
The engine is the same arrangement number for both as well.

Re: Novel use for a 725

This thread popped up in Random threads and thought id add a few other examples of ADT's in novel use!

We use 2 x 725 as fuel bowsers and a 735 as a lube truck!

Apologies it does take you to a Cat site that requires log in, can't attach the vid as file size is too large.
