Wooldridge model TC-Y Terra Cobra of C.J.Langenfelder at work on the Pennsylvania Turnpike in early 1952. The un-muffled straight exhaust pipe probably made for some interesting listening. Push tractor is an Allis-Chalmers HD-15.
GM 4-53 powered Model 103 with hydraulic straight blade shows off its conventional undercarriage & recoil adjusting system. When photographed, this machine had been parked up for quite some time. The unusual muffler support is noteworthy and probably removes a bit of the noise of the GM diesel away from the operator.
Euclid TC-12 equipped with a GarWood C12 Dozecaster and model 240 nose mounted cable control (PCU). GarWood manufactured the majority of attachments for Euclid track type tractors until 1965 when Euclid began producing its own.
A model TC-S Terra Cobra. The principal difference between a TC-Y and a TC-S was in the bowl draft arms. On the TC-S they are pivoted further forward allowing more accurate control of the bowl while loading. This machine also has the front panel removed revealing the steering chain.

An Eimco Model 105 clearing scrub and brush in Texas, equipped with a hydraulic angle blade. The rear mounted radiator shows well in this view as does the big, flat rear chassis plate, ideal for mounting all sorts of extra equipment.
