Caterpillar D11, 2012

The Caterpillar D11 is a heavy-duty bulldozer used in mining, building roads and ripping rocks. It is one of the biggest bulldozers around – beautiful, and very powerful. The idea to build it came during a discussion with a friend about the Israeli military training ground and mine fields in my area of South Mountain Hebron. We discussed how to remove land mines and other military hazards, and what would be the best machines for such work.  I said that the D11would be ideal for this kind of work, but my friend pointed out that it would be complicated to make, and unlike any model I have made before. “We will see,” I said. It took me six months to find the materials and to build this majestic Caterpillar.
