a dozer with a crane attachment, is a very handy thing

A 5,000 pound capacity Trackson Swing Crane mounted on an International TD-9 was standardized as the M5, 2-Ton Crane.

 Trackson's crane assemblies utilized the inverted "U" concept, with the structure mounted low on the outside and inside of the track frame. Only 321 of these were built, in 1943, and many of them went to the Navy's Bureau of Yards and Docks. A power takeoff shaft ran under the operator's legs and out onto the right and left fenders, where chain-operated gears drove the mechanisms used in the lifting, elevating, and swinging operations.

thanks Steve!
