This is an old plow handle type tractor which my brother, Harold Hebert in Monrovia, California, had converted into a miniature D8! Ha! Ha!

The City of Monrovia used it to haul cast iron pipe up in the
Monrovia Canyon for a water line. They made a pipe dollie out of
airplane tail wheels and put a telescoping tong on it and it
replaced burros which would fall off the trail too often. I believe
it had a Wisconsin engine. Maybe the fellows out there know. But I
used it to harrow and level and plow. It is real powerful and will
turn on a dime and give change!

My brother Carl Hebert put on the cutting handles, on right is
twist-throttle, left has the kill button. It has a Ford type crank
and kicks on the first spin. I steam cleaned a D8 Caterpillar and
painted it so I took the little tractor and parked it next to the
D8 Caterpillar. What a picture! (Which I am still trying to find.)
It pulled the plow in this picture. Courtesy of: W. F.
