If it's like the old crawlers they had a crank handle and you better hope the mag points aren't stuck.

The D-2 we had was rope start on the pony motor, it was a good little rig, hell it even had Hydraulics on it for the blade.
We also a D-8 13A ...all cable, no hydraulics, that cantankerous old beast had the crank that came up through the hood for the pony and would rip your Arm out is the socket on a good day.
I was in Heaven the day they delivered the 2 ( yes 2 ) A/C HD-21P crawlers.
Direct electric start, turbo charged and full power-shift transmissions, full hydro controls on the ripper and blade...they even had hydraulic friction controls, you could turn one with a finger.
After that no one wanted to drive the D-8.
Ahhh the good old days, diesel fumes and eating dirt all day.
LOL

I'll look tomorrow, I don't think there is a pony motor.

You might want it?

It must weigh 10 tons, shipping from 46350 would be a bitch.

It belongs to the guy I work for. Been sitting here for quite a while.

Tag says 240/480 3 phase, 231 KVA continuous, 18.5 KW.



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

I'll clean up the tag if you wonder about it's specs.

Don`t worry about shipping, I can just drive over and put it the back of my Ranger pick-up........

LOL I was just giving ya a bad time about the coffee can`s.
I would love to have one, I live up in the sierras and in the winter when it snows we often have power outages.
Now if I could just find one that runs on flat beer and banana peels I would have it made.
I have seen Cats that have sit for years, and you put fresh fuel/oil in them and they fire up.....with grass growing on the tracks.
