en,ineer lIIa.c.hines are becOIIIina: more and DOTe obsolete. They are heavy.
noomanaieable and not adaptable for operation in terrain contaminated
with radioactive fallout. Specialists of the whole world aTe worting on
f urther per feetion of the const'l'Uction of this tlachincry extensively .p
plying the neve,t technololical achleve.ents. Behold , several of the
proposed designs . .

For the Ught c.aterpillar ttactor- amphibian',{Figure 1), whose weiaht


does not exc~d 2.7 t . , excavator and dump truc~ qualities have been ca-
bined. Such .. tractor can rapidly clear and level every area. On the
other hand the ...chine shown in Firure 2 is du1rned for raisin, fills.
constructing Toads and runway strips .~ airfields. It has been equ~pped
with smooth and loHered rq~ius for COllpa.ctinC ground. The pressure
created by these rol l ers ean be increased thanks to the elevation of the
front or rear portion of the Dachine. The hydraulic lilt system serves
far this p..arpose.
The machine for constructinl ~urmels and ullderrround air raid shel

placlna blastin, charlcs autOliatically. After the rock blasting. the ,
stones will be extracted with the aid of a belt conveyor which is in
s t alled between the caterpiller treads.

On the foot of the .achine shown in Fliure 4. _ borinl device 15


installed resembling a tun barrel . Tbis device. "however . has sa-e other
ut ilization-- it is desilnated for makina cuts ~ defil es in moun~ . ins.
A blah IlUtput of the device can be achi eved tl\anb to vibntions of

The next two caterpillar aach ines are in ~any respects stml1ar
to each other. One of them (Figure 6) clears passase ways in forested
backwoods . Especial ly thick stumps are difficult to cut or thrust
aside from the roadway . And fOT this designated purpose a ho~st is
inStalled on the Macnine.

The Jlachine in Figure 7 is designated for removing ruins on de
molished streets of ci~lcs. It Is equipped with a p~werful slnela bull
dOler loader', a hyd'r'au~lc crane and 1:WO mechanical ani aanipulatorll:
one with an acetylene torch for cutting .etal construction, the other
with a chain saw which rea4rkably gets along well with .large stone
boUlders .' All the machines have been equipped with sp~cfal shields
which protect the crew against radioactive radiation.
