These five men seem to be enjoying themselves as they pull a large snag through an Alder grove near Buena Vista, using one of the earliest successful bulldozers -- the Best or Caterpillar 60 horsepower model. Developed by the C. L. Best Company of California, it was one of the models carried over when they merged in 1925 with the Holt Manufacturing Company to form the company that would become known as Caterpillar. The Sixty was a 72-inch gauge machine and weighed ten tons. When production ended in 1931, about 19,000 had been built. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
