No idea, it or they (we may have had more than one, I really don't know) were gone long before I came up here.

Been there, dunn that, miserable sods wouldn't give me a T-shirt to prove it. 42 Tons operating weight with a rear-mounted ripper, Cummins 855 'donk', 20 foot blade, rigid frame, some air-over-hydraulic controls (different - not necessarily better, but 'different'.), would push-load a Cat 660B scraper better than a Cat D8H dozer and was a real glutton for work. I was at best comfortably busy keeping fill and haul roads in shape for 3 x Cat 660B scrapers, ripping the floor of the borrow pit for them, cleaning up after topsoil stripping, fishing out the odd bogged scraper and any other odd jobs they could find to throw at me. It was NOT a Cat grader but I enjoyed my time on it, mostly because of the sheer grunt of the beast, I think.
That was on a job constructing an earth-walled retention basin for treated effluent for sugar cane irrigation near Hervey Bay, Queensland, Australia, in 1996. I don't know where the jigger is now but could possibly find out.
