The Beetle Tractor is a 2,000 lb crawler manufactured by Western Gear Works, Seattle, WA between 1944 and 1948. Probably 90 machines were produced (still digging), they were the precursor to the Clarkair Tractor of WWII (both machines were designed by T.P. Flynn of the US Forest Service). 4 cylinder Waukesha engine (ICK series) , 3 spd transmission with seperate forward/reverse dual clutch system, and hydaulic dozer blade. Contact from ANYONE with ANY additional information would be appreciated.
