Just an aside, anyone remember the novel "Bulldozer" by Stephen Meader?, a kids author. it has this very same theme. A D2 Cat is in a pond, fell thru the ice. These two young guys get it out in the spring by using some type of A frame made with trees, pull on it with a truck to lever it out, and out it comes. Then after a few hours of tinkering they get it started. Of course this was a novel. not sure if it would work that way in real life.

I got that book. And i think with enough ambition and a little luck you could do something like that. Were there's a will there is a way.

We got the dozer out today with a 322 cat track hoe. We have been draining oil all afternoon. I think tommorow we are going to have to take the injectors out to get the water and oil off the top of the pistons. I think by tommorow afternoon we will have it running.

WOW, you got lucky. Several years ago I saw a 312 CAT excavator that wasn't as stuck as your loader that took two 225 CAT excavators pulling on it to get it out.

Too, I was telling Dad about this the other day and he remembered the deal I described the other day with the stuck D8. Turns out I had forgotten one small fact....the two D8's did not get the stuck one out, they had to bring in another good sized machine and use it, along with the two 8's, to get it unstuck.

Glad you got it out. I didn't think it would take too much to get it out after seeing the picture.

Yeah, he's pretty cool. I'll bet he might come up with some ideas for getting that 'dozer out.
