  • Hello from New Zealand. I have an HG60 standard tractor and an OC3 with a blade. The HG is undergoing an extensive rebuild like gearbox, final drive, new track bushes and pins refitted front idler hubs and so on. Nearly complete and looks quite exciting. OC3 is original but basically quite sound. Also have a 77B hay mower adapted to the "Ollys" and it works really well too. Ther is quite a strong and growing group of Oliver crawlers, mostly HGs and OC3s in the local vintage tractor and machinery club of 260 members. We mostly use them for plowing but occasionally shift a bit of dirt too. In fact we got "Men of Steel" days going for the crawlers and steel wheeled tractors and they are really popular. These Ollys are amazing in the bush and on the hills. Would be keen to hear from some of you chaps in the US of A so start writing please.
