The Euclid TC-12 was not two C6 crawlers put together. The TC-12 from the onset was designed as a twin engine split frame machine.

From my research it was a big material mover and an excellent ripping machine, but were it shone was in pushloading scrapers. It was as as has been said, General Motors' Mean Green Bulldozing Machine.
