K-3/1 Caterpillar D9 Bulldozer

This is the Caterpillar D9 which was first manufactured in 1956; and I believe still in production. The Lesney model was made from 1960 to 1965. It was always yellow with a red engine. variation comes from the different coloured rollers for the caterpillar tracks. They can be bare metal, metal painted red or yellow or red plastic. The one to keep your eyes open for is the one with the red plastic rollers.

Fairly usual for old Lesney caterpillar tractors of all types to have no tracks remaining, they were rubber & perished, they were also fairly fragile and very prone to breaking in play.

Yellow, red engine, bare metal rollers
