    Caterpillar Twenty Two Mini Dozer Build

    I built this for my son. Took me 2 1/2 years to finish it. I designed it and it's based loosely off of a Model Twenty Two Caterpillar dozer.

    The whole build was originally posted here.

    Here is one video. There are more if you look under my name.


    Here are some highlights.

    What a cool project for your son and an even greater construction project for you. I would looking for dirt moving projects throughout the neighborhood just to be able to run the dozer all day long. Definitely the "Tool of the Week"! Thanks for the photos and the video. Paul
