    after spending 8 weeks in the south because of my dad's heart problems. i returned to the KINGDOM only to find i had to plow lots of snow. so i decided to fire up the d6 9u know as THE HOOD to do the plowing. it was a little fun to start a cat that had not run in 4 months at -32C.

    Pony motor cat I assume. Whole can of ether or what? Now you just need to leave it running for the rest of the winter!

    i left the cat run for 4 days when we did THE ROCKET TOUR in march of last year. all my cats have electric starters with no glow plugs. me and the pup motors have never gotten along for some reason, LOL

    Unbelievable. Drove it to town? How far it that? Don't you freeze your butt off? Love reading about the Kingdom. Pretty amazing stuff that you have done in the past. Thanks for sharing.

    thansk dan, the cat has no cab for when we are working on ice. if the cat falls through the ice, the operator can escape out the top, i have done it a couple of times.
    THE HOOD with the windsheild and canvas makes it comfortable in the operators seat.
    here is a picture from last winter when i was moving a 1/2 million dollar diamond drill around with a cat that has a value of scrap metal, LOL
