Caterpillar D8 Industry Pusher

The Caterpillar D8 Industry Pusher in 1:50th scale was released by ATM.

The scale model Caterpillar D8 Industry Pusher is manufactered by Art et Technique Machines. Abbreviated and better known as the ATM company from France. The model is released under item number N58 under the official name: "Pousseur de scraper de 130 CV / 130 HP scraper pusher".

Today, fortunately many of the old ATM models are re-released. The company Engineering Model Developments (EMD) has these models in its range. The Caterpillar D8 with push block (1940-dozer) is a model in the EMD Series N and a built model available to order as EMDN058 using Buffalo Road Imports.

As a variation A.T.M. has also a Caterpillar D8 No.8A Track-Type Tractor released.

With this nice scale model from ATM in my collection I'm desperatly looking for more information about the 1:1 machine. Ad Gevers [abc] great archive helped me to become the current information and photos.

Caterpillar Push plates are designed to transmit the full power of the tractor for various industrial purposes from moving trainwagons aswell as pushing a full loaded Wheel Tractor-Scraper.

If you are in the possession of more photos or additional background information about the 1:1 Caterpillar D8 Industry Pusher I would be happy if you send your response to info@minimovers.nl
