Do Stockeys own any D10's ? I've seen a D9R and a D9T.

You won't be getting much change out of £1,250,000 for a new D11T Carry Dozer.

I'm no bulldozer expert so I have to ask; Do Komatsu have a closely competing model to the D11T and what is the market acceptence of the model?

Komatsu have the D575 super dozer, which is larger than the D11, i believe they tend to be troubled as they get to higher hours.

Maybe our Canadian cousins can give us some more detail?

Ha Ha Ha Is that more like 1,250,000 days you will wait to get one!

The Komatsu Dozers are poor compaired to the highdriver's.

I think each should stick to there own.

The D475 is the same sice as a D11. The D575 is a very impressive machine!

I once visited an opencast mine. I asked how many elevens they had?....he said 14!.........How many Komatsu D475 do you have?..........only 2.

I think that speaks for itself.
