Benbros Quality Toys Bulldozer and Crawler. 7 years, 3 months ago #1

I managed to win this one in the middle of August 2013. Good buy or should I say win so as to join the Crawler that I managed to win some months ago. Thus completing the set.



I asked to be billed for, signed for (registered) airmail postage which increased the outlay price a little big more but is worth it in the long run $70.37 AUD for the compete rig.  Yes it does have the matching blade and pushing bar hydraulic lifting gear as the Moko Lesney.

Minus the rubber tracks and some paint the diecast is in reasonable good condition.

The crawler as I suspected in the first place is a handmade replacement stuck in the rear of the Crawler while the Bulldozer has the cast hook still inplace.

Got any tracks for the it yet lol

I think it was the Corgi we found that made the good replacements although not the same tread closeness to the above. These tracks also fit the Lesney Moko large bulldozer and crawler. I obtained those Corgi JCB loader tracks through Jim Noble Co through this web site. I hope this is of some help as I will not upload any photos anymore until everything is fixed on here. Cheers.

I think these are the ones. They fit the Matchbox King Size K3a, K8 and K17 bulldozers.

Jim can verify. I have lots of tracks from different makers and just need measurements to fit. Sometimes it works out but other times is does not.

Would you not be able to cut & make a pair from a repro pair

I have tried that Andy. Cutting to the right size is no problem. The problem is gluing the ends back together. I have not found a glue yet that fixes it and gives no stains....

If it is a rubber track try using a bicycle repair kit for the inner tube. That holds incredibly well. Make the fit as smooth as you can, even to the point of taking some off the top of one end and take some off the bottom of the track at the other end. It will be smoother fit. I have only done this once with a Corgi TC-12 Dozer and the customer has not complained. That was years ago.
