For those of you on Facebook or able to view Facebook, I am just building an Oliver crawler appreciation site.
There's some interesting pics on there, and even a few wheeled 550s & a 1255, with more to come.
Check it out:

I'd appreciate it if you could 'like' me, as it helps me to add more to the site.

Loading an OC3 with Ware 3WI loader and Jet Trencher. Hydraulics on the backhoe were a bit baggy and it kept dropping down! I was doing this while trying to keep the spring-loaded choke wire pulled as the carb was dirty and engine was stalling under load due to fuel starvation.
Note to self: load backwards in future :)

The other tractor is a 4x4 Oliver 1255.

Worst piece of equipment I ever owned. Engineering should have been shot for that one.

Aside of it being back-heavy, I've done a ton of great work with it! Including digging out alongside cracked foundations in heavy clay. A nice feature in its day, was the way the trencher is offset so you can dig parallel to existing walls.
I just load up the bucket with blocks to move it around.

But each is allowed an opinion I guess.
