Miniart 1:35 - US Tractor D7 with Angled Dozer Blade - Plastic model kit #35184
The D7 was a medium bulldozer deployed by the US Army during WWII. It was produced by Caterpillar Inc., in 1938 and as such was also known as the Caterpillar D7.
During WWII, D7 tractors with blades were often used for earthworks. However, they also served for moving military equipment, when the blades were removed. There were four variants for the blades: a straight blade (S-blade), a universal blade (U-blade), an S-U combination blade and an angled blade. The angled blade was attached to the bulldozer C-frame and had three set positions: right angle, left angle, and centred.
The further development of the series was marked by the appearance of the D7D, D7E, D7F, D7G, D7H and D7R models. The latest version of the tractor was introduced in 2008. It was the D7E bulldozer improved with a 235 hp diesel engine.
