They all started the same way. IH built them from H tractors to TD-24 crawlers.

I just looked at the pictures again and it appears that there is a tierod on the rear axle, so I think it has the rear steer option.

Yup, now i see the linkage to the front of the cab and see that the axel is well below the frame. That must be a little confusing to learn to operate.

That is a UD-16 engine, dual exhaust because it has 2 heads, manifold for each head. My uncle had an Awful Western like that but it had the UD-9, 4 cylinder IH...good old graders in their day. Unk 's had a broken windshield where his head smacked it when he snagged a rock.

My friend that works for Caterpillar said the old school operators hate the new graders, they just have a little joystick & a bunch of buttons in a panel...the young guys that grew up playing video games catch on to them right quick...
