Decided the 475 needed something different to go with the big Transporter . Going "Mine spec" with a big coal blade and c'weight in place of the ripper . It's totally changed the look of the base model .

Can't stop watching this Great work, Marty, I really like it. I just came across this video, ok, it's a D375 A-8 But with coal blade, cw and platforms it realy is very close to your D475

That is a very nice custom. Like the blade a lot.

Cheers Dex , Yeah mate , started with the overall dimensions and a couple of pics of a Cat blade on a D11 and the pin locations of the Kommy blade and sort of made it up from there till i had something I liked .
Pics borrowed from F'book group "Heavy Haulage in Australia" . If this was coming towards ya down the road I reakon you'd get off the road in fairly short order...
