Looks like it s full of parts for anyone willing to pull it apart and clean all the rust off... Just bought a 1952 Cat D2 - So I can part with the TD20 for a fair offer. Near Abany NY. -Rob

  • My father had a 1936 T20. A good many years ago, he sold it to a collector. This was during the mid 70's. It started and ran well. Several months ago, I found a series of photographs of the crawler from various angles and have been unable to find them again. This machine had a foot clutch. I am curious as to whether all T20's had this. What years were they made?

  • In regards to the mid 1930's T20 my father had, it was traded to Lloyd Harkins (a collector of about anything) of Siver Star, Montana. He is an elderly gentleman now and may still have it. If interested, contact me and I will forward address and phone of Mr. Harkins

  • My father had a T20 crawler I believe to have been made in the mid 1930's. It was in great mechanical shape and used once in a while until the mid 1970's and was traded to a collector. It was the only T20 I've seen. I don't know if all models were the same, but this one had a foot clutch. I am curious to know if this was rare or they all had foot clutches. Thanks.

  • I have a 1934-35? T-20 that I have been working on for about five years. Engine is done, transmission through steering clutches gone through, presently working on left side final drive and undercarriage. I am, however, confused by the serial number, 2772 HA/5, on the engine which would indicate a 1934 TracTracTor with engine component casting dates of 3-22-C and 6-8-C which would indicate 1933 castings. The problem is that the casting dates on the frame and gear cast housing are 7-29-35 and 4-26-35 indicating parts cast in 1935. The serial number plate was missing on this TracTracTor. Any comparisons of other T-20 serial number and casting dates would be appreciated.

  • We have a 1931 T-20 and we are 2nd owner of this tractor. Ours has always been inside, low hours on engine & runs good. We also have hydraulics, chain driven pump mounted above p.t.o. -- Ours spent most of its life working local vineyards, but we only use a few hours a year. We are I.H.C. crawler people. Use TD-6, TD-9, TD-9B, TD-14, TD-15 and 3 TD-18' Lighter & faster than Caterpillar!

I have a few #'s off the engine..2377DA & 2378DA any ideas? What is the value? Year of Manufacture?

  • I really like the T20 in the picture. I have a TD40 it is running on gasoline and we will soon try her on diesel. The engine is in good order but tracks and rollers will need some work I will get new panels and hood made a coat of paint and she'll be like new. Is there any other sites on these tractors I can't find any.

  • I just purchased two T-20 crawlers. One was complete and the other I purchased for parts. It has been partially dissasembled, mostly just the engine is out and torn apart. I have always wanted a crawler, but I don't know much about them. I gave 1000 dollars for both and figured that was a fair price. I don't think it will take much to get the complete one running, or so I hope. If any one has any advice on these tractors, let me know. My past experiences have been with orange tractors, so I am now a "Binder" owner. Thanks
