Caterpillar D8-8R Built in Illinois USA in 1941 then shipped over to England to join 79th armoured Div 819 Dozer Squadron. This actual machine took part in Normandy and D-Day events. Filmed on 19th July 2008 at Barton under Needwood Steam Rally ( near Lichfield Staffs ) What you are watching is the start process needed before the Big Cats diesel engine can be started. The petrol driven starter motor ( donkey engine ) is fired up first. This generates heat which inturn is used to warm up the big diesel engine prior to starting. The action of the starter motor also builds up the oil pressure in the big diesel engine. When the required oil pressure has been reached you will see the guy activate the start mechanism on the diesel engine. Once she has fired up the primary petrol engine is shut down leaving the Big Cat Diesel engine purring away....Sweet

Cranking over the pony starter and lugging the big diesel to life for the
first time since about August last year, then taking her out for a quick

Caterpillar D8 - Vintage Working Weekend
1964 Caterpillar D8 filmed working the land at East Midlands Vintage
Working Weekend, Commons farm, Braybrooke, Market Harborough. 15th and 16th
The theme was International & Caterpillar, working crawler tractors
demonstrating the art of working the land. This CAT was the biggest one
there, Caterpillar D8 H 22A built around 1964 dragging behind it a Sub
Soiler / Ripper used to break up the sub soil in a field thus creating
better drainage, usually used after the soil has become compacted. This
video demonstrates the brute force needed to pull this kind of implement up
hill and down dale, something the big CAT has in abundance... Driven by

Looking back - Digging out - 3/13/1999
To better understand where you are, you need to look back at where you came
from. This is the first video of a new series that will look at different
events from around the Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum from
On March 13, 1999, we find a sunny, but snow covered Saturday at the
R&GVRRM. With the road to the then new restoration shop covered in over a
foot of snow, the front loader started to plow the road only to find the
slopped edge of the road where it stayed. Undaunted, museum volunteer,
George Knab, went off to get a machine to both handle the snow and handle
pulling out the loader, the museum's 1950s vintage cable blade Caterpillar
We see George handle the snow and then pull out the loader. Alas only
four short years later, we would lose George. To this day, he is greatly
missed, but not forgotten. We hope you enjoy the video and we always
welcome people to come to visit & volunteer to see where we are now after

Start Deutz Traktor - old engine start
Von diesen wunderschönen Treffen habe ich auch eine DVD erstellt.
Auf dem Bulldog Dampf und Diesel Treffen 2009 in Markkleeberg bei Leipzig,
konnte ich den Start eines Deutz Traktors miterleben und filmen.
Mit viel Qualm erwachte der Traktor zum Leben.
This is our 24 cylinder Detroit that we are putting in a custom 359
Peterbilt. It will use an Allison Transmission, and the engine will be in
the front of the truck. We are starting off with 40 foot 4" X 14" rectangle
rails, not sure how long it will end up being.
Bump starting a Caterpillar D8
So you stalled your D8...do you really want to mess with getting the pony
started when there's another D8 around?
2 old Caterpillar D-8's clearing land at the National Pike showgrounds,
Brownsville PA. The show will host the Historical Construction Equipment
Association (HCEA) National
(International) Convention in August 2008, and more space is needed for the
large number of machines expected. Plans include a serious turnout of pan
scrapers of all eras, and a Euclid TC-12 twin dozer.
...and of course 2 working steam shovels.
