Default Cat 60

Did they a factory dozed blade for a cat 60? Has a tag that says Euclid and the pump has Euclid cast in it. Maybe a aftermarket part?

The Cat 60 was one of the first crawlers to be turned into Dozers. I remember seeing Cat factory photo of a 60 pushing dirt out in the California mountains building the original Mulholland Drive. I have never seen this Euclid unit but as mentioned it is a very modern balanced unit. Ive included pics of Will Wingos Cat 60 with a blade. It has a single hyd. cylinder in the rear that pushes the blade up and down through a pivot located at mid track. These pics were taken at the national Historical Equip. Assoc show in 2011. Will is from PA and hauls this tractor all over to country. I have a similar blade that came with a Cat 30 and is very similar to Will's tractor. It took a few years until Cat got on board and began producing their own integrated dozer setups. It sort of reminds me of how BO Linderman turned early JD's into crawlers and were taken over when JD saw how effective they were. Ed B

Also note the differences between the different makes of blades as to the shape of the curvature of the blade. It took a few tries to learn that the blade should scour similar to a plow mouldboard to push easier.

Just remembered that one of the first builders was La Plant-Choate. I would also like to see the other side of this machine because all the Hydraulic equip is on that side. Looks like a rock shaft goes across just behind the radiator on the frame. Thanks Ed B

Some have number on the right front side of the frame. Basically below the lift mechanism on your machine. There is also one stamped on a flat boss by the water pump or farther back if I remember right.

Yes this one has that also. How tall is your blade? I think this one has been trimmed down some when they put the tree pusher on it.

Here's my brother's 30 with a Euclid blade on it. Great for back blading, but forget pushing to any degree of accuracy....

that is a nice setup on the 30 with a singlr cylinder and rockshaft in the rear some interesting geometry used in the linckages and blade setup
Bryant you are correct in that your blade has been shortened for that pusher assembly it also looks like the push arms might have been shortened also i believe my blade is about 4.5 feet tall i will measure when i can and get back with you
