DGI Celebrates Annual Running of 1925 Model Caterpillar Two Ton Tractor.


Last week, the DGI Trading team were excited to host industry legend Jack McAlpin at our Kempsey facility for the annual start-up of our historical Caterpillar Two Ton tractor.

A pioneer of earthmoving and mining equipment maintenance throughout the Greater Sydney region in the 80s and 90s, Jack brought a wealth of knowledge from this era to bring our circa-1925 model Caterpillar Two Ton to life.

Popular within the U.S.A. and distributed in the U.K., the Caterpillar Two Ton is a development of the earlier Holt T35, given a name change in 1925 to the Caterpillar brand.

With its four cylinder 4” x 5” motor running at 1000 r.p.m. this was the last tractor to feature cast iron tracks – with the rail and the shoe being cast in one piece.

DGI Trading is proud to maintain this piece of earthmoving history for future generations to enjoy.
