The track chains were found at a local coal mine and plates were welded on. The sprockets and idlers were also homemade. 3' x 5' angle iron was used for the frame and a 1950 G John Deere hood, grill and seat were used to highlight the dozer.

The replica is 8' long, 4' wide and 44' tall. It weighs 1600 lbs. without a driver.
