      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

In the summer, can they help with wildfires?

 

They are in some states like Alaska, Minnesota and Florida where they have swamp, bog and muskeg fires. Most of the machines pictured here are four tracked Tuckers. Most of the machines used to carry tools or retardents are two tracked Bombardiers, Thiokol/DMC/LMC, Formost or Nodwell.

 

Tucker is used for North Slope and draught work.

My favorite machine there, a '81 Tucker resurrected from the Hyak heap pile. It has a classic Detroit 4-53.

 

They started making the 4-53 in about 1940, and ended production in the late eighties
