MINI-DOZER A FUNMOBILE
The Mini-Dozer shows its real muscle and maneuver-
ability the moment, it tackles its first "tough" assign-
ment. The minute you start the engine, you and the Mini-
Dozer take complete command.
Whatever the material; top soil, snow, sand, grave],
etc. it will melt before the rugged Mini-Dozer equipped
with the 42" No.100 Dozer Blade. A single control lever
mounted in the rear gives you complete control of the
Blade. It allows you to quickly and accurately fill and
smooth every rut and ditch in your path. A single pin
on the Blade allows you to angle it left, right, or
straight ahead to give you accurate dozing.

The unique No.16 Dozer Tracks give a sure"web-footed"


stance. This wide track allows the Mini-Dozer to run in
any type of ground condition; be it marsh, ice, snow,
sand or just plain old-fashion Mud! The Tracks being

segmented provide a self - cleaning action while you're


traveling which helps keep a clean biting edge cons-
tantly digging deep for the greatest traction.

The quick acting reverse is a delight for dozing.


You can change from forward to reverse travel "on the
go" by simply pulling up on the reversing handle. Re-
lease this handle and you're on your way forward again.
This "quick reverse" feature is perfect when you're
banking snow or trying to level top soil on your new
lawn.

True, all around visability is another plus feature.
