Euclid TC-12

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. The first TC-12 prototype started its engineering evaluation in July 1954 with the production model being introduced October 1956. The C6 started its testing schedule in May 1955 with the first production models hitting the dirt in 1958. If any one is interested in seeing (and hearing) a TC-12 in action, apart from the video that is available covering the mentioned 'Kukerin' rally, try and track down an early sixty's black and white movie starring Sidney Poitier called 'Lillies In The Field'.
The Euclid TC-12/Terex 82-80 has its detractors, but it was quite a remarkable machine. For a long time there was no crawler that could match it. 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.

The discussion started out with the following post: " I am in the market for an older tractor (to be read... cheap). I have been told a diesel holds up better than a gasoline engine as far a wear, tear, neglect and abuse. Since I am looking at older tractors that have probably been through it all, is it better to buy diesel? I do expect to have to do a good bit of work on ... [Read Article]
