Classic Vintage Crawlers & Dozers

Volume 1
Sit back and enjoy, as crawlers and dozers are highlighted from their infancy through the Golden Age of the 1960s.

Book Description

The bulldozer is the unsung hero of the technological world, a machine that led to the development of many of the roads and settlements we enjoy today. But the humble dozer garners little recognition for its contributions to modern society. In Classic Vintage Crawlers & Dozers, authors Roger V. Amato and Donald J. Heimburger give the bulldozer its due by tracing its history from the Renaissance through to the crawlers’ Golden Age of the 1960s.

From Benjamin Holt’s early 1900 crawlers to C.L. Best’s gasoline powered models, follow along as this volume highlights Allis-Chalmers and Case through the 1970s and Caterpillar of the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s. This first volume includes nearly 400 black and white photos, illustrations and colour photos gathered from shows, libraries, machinery manufacturing companies and private collections. You won’t find another heavy equipment book like it!
