    Steel undercarriage. What motivated CAT to take a step backwards?

    All steel rollers/idlers/sprockets, but the tracks are conventional steel imbedded rubber.

    The whole undercarriage looks like a D-6 high drive, even the way the front idler assembly is setup with the leading roller, all that's missing is the trunion covers for the outside blade option! [​IMG]

    But that 299 is a heavy little bugger, 10,700 lbs!

    But they are all too wide, I was hoping for a narrow track version, give me something in the 72" width category.
    But the torsion axle mounts look like they are in the same position as on the MTL's, I wonder if you could swap the U/C's right over?
