    Im guessing it is a articulated type of dozer on tracks. There where pics floating around on HEF last year. That is what it looks like covered up with the tarp. Maybe ksss, can take pics of it at the Con Expo. Im hoping it still shows up on here. Im using the crappy dial up now. Using the T1 line at work the pic popped right up.

    It's the Bison, front cab over a D-6 PAT blade, articulated frame with rubber tracks on all 4 corners, like an over sized quad Loegering track set up, one of the useless innovations that Deere seems to have nowadays.

    That's what I think they are covering up here with the tarp. I myself also am not sure if it would be a good idea. Cat makes a similar machine except it is used in the waste business and it does not have tracks. It has the sheeps foot style wheels. I would have to look on Cat's website to give you the correct name of the machine they call it. In the ag word a Case IH quadtrack will pull better than a Cat Challenger. It is possible that this could push better but I am doubting it.

    A Quadtrack will pull better than a Challenger? A 9030T, too? (Just curious.)

    And Cat makes wheel dozers (8x4 model numbers -- 814F2, 824H, 834H, 844H, and 854K), soil compactors (8x5 models -- 815F2, 825H, 836H), and landfill compactors (8x6 models -- 816F2, 826H, 836H).

    That being said, I'm really curious where Deere goes/is going with this idea. I'll get to ConExpo too late (Friday/Saturday) to get you the scoop, but I can take lots of pictures. :D

    Yes it has been our experience from being around the 9030T and the Challengers that the Quads Tracs pull allot better. Yes the landfill compators is what Im talking about. I have seen the wheel models also now that you have mentioned it. By the way the new Challengers are way better than the Deere's.

    The Bison has a rear mounted engine in it though.

    Maybe it's some competition for the Challenger 975?

    What I understand is the 975 has the 9030 wooped.

    I don't have any idea what that would be used for besides pull pans?
