Rustexpert, where did you get your Photo from? I have tried to get more info about the Speedcat here on Smokstal but hit the wall.

The photo I posted was put up on Facebook Timber Tractors and Lorries; if you are on Facebook this is the place to be if you are interested in historic British timber extraction and transport machinery.

That is a very interesting crawler track. It appears to have 3 steel wire ropes fitted in grooves in the track sections and possibly clamped to the sections.

I’d look around Mead Morrison’s history. Mead Specialties Co in Chicago built a small crawler with the speed cat name in the forties. Pacific Gear and Tool Works may also be a good place to look.
