With a 235 horsepower Caterpillar diesel engine coupled to a power shift transmission and an operating weight of nearly 24 tons, the Caterpillar D8H 46A is a true legend. Advertised by Caterpillar as having “the solid feel of direct drive with the flexibility of a torque converter” this machine lived up to its promises. A hydraulic blade and ripper were standard equipment, but options such as winches and side booms made the tractor as adaptable as the operators needed. The fact that these machines can still be found at work in mines, forests and fields some 50 years after they debuted is testimony to both their durability and their popularity.
