However would you transport such a beast?!? Permit cost prohibitive for a hobby...

you take it apart. transport the two drive units on their own trailer, and the beams and tracks on a third trailer.

then use a crane to put it together wherever you end up at.

I can't seem to be able to find the pics of the Siamese d8 used on the hungry horse dam but I'll do some more digging. I believe it was primarily used to pile brush faster as they cleared the forest from the soon to be reservoir area.

Not nearly as impressive as the above photos, but I did see a D7 sitting in a field.

that little fella has got something big to aim for there what a great old photo

I dont think they used a steel ball that dozer blade on the front is a funnel dozer and it has a cutter bar (Root Plow) is the proper name I think on the back and it all was done in one operation

I was 99% sure they did. I had a pair of photos of the mechanics working on the blade at the dam site which with the dates has to be the Hungry Horse project, but can not find them. . . yet.

Hope you have better luck finding it than I did. I'll have to talk to my grandma because years ago grandpa and his buddies put together a short video/slideshow of different pictures and videos of flathead valley. Old loggers and logging jobs, I'm sure the dam was on it and I'm sure home videos of the 64 flood were on there as well.
