    That's great, Miginsbros, thanks!

    5 minutes is like my outside limit for vids, so it's perfect.

    Also I like the sound of German (that's was German, right, not Dutch or something else?).

    Check out the vid between 3:35 - 3:37. The guy hits a button labelled "Sprinkler" (in English, right?). What's that about?!

    Product of the UK, or USA? Or is it the same word in German?!

    He is working the track control module there with which he can start or stop or variate the different rood conditions like the fountains spraying up putting everything under water without fountains or other ways how to make the track wetter or whatever. Would not be surprised if he can raise or lower these pedestrian speed bumps as well. About 30 years ago I saw a video of the MAN testing facility for trying out the road stability of the 8x8 MAN. That road was something like a concrete washboard with counter-wave ridges. They were driving slowly but those wheels were like over 4 feet in height difference, like left front at zero, left second at - 1 feet left rear first at +2 feet and left rear rear at -2 feet. Crazy to see but the truck was rather horizontal throughout that experience.

    Two video's




    and




    Took me a minute to realize the second one is with model trucks, but they are doing great.

    To return to Tracers topic, no english version of the Kat I (the early Kat version) TMīs /TDv available. Sounds like they delivered to the german Bundeswehr, only.
    One member use google translater and this will work for him. He donīt speak any german words, he said.

    So this will be a "cold case" for now.

    And UK to German or German to UK is the best of google's translations.

    Sometimes I write something in UK and let Google translate it in Czech. Most people start laughing or ask what the heck this is, then say they do not understand a word of it.

    Just uploaded the operators TM for the M1001, M1002, M1013 and M1014 MAN, 10 Ton tractors. It is very similar to the MAN KAT 5 Ton. The controls and such should correspond to the MAN KAT 5 Ton. Still working on the German manuals. I think I have more success when I upload during the hours you all are asleep. I have been the last few weeks going crazy with US taxes, and Cherry Madness.

    Cherry Madness is when the cherry's are ripe, and you have to pick them. If it rains during that time, fold up the tents and go home. Didn't have any help, so 6-8 hours in the trees a day. If I see, smell, taste or touch another cherry, I will vomit. BUT, I have my 110 liters of mash, and hope its going to be a fine year to make schnapps!

    Translation is tricky.


    The U.S. author Mark Twain made fun back in the 19th Century of translation errors.


    It was about his story "The Jumping Frog of Calaveras County", kind of funny (he was a funny guy):

    Tracer, according to the orange plates it seems like your truck was used for hazardous goods. IMG_20190718_192401.jpg IMG_20190718_192314.jpg IMG_20190718_192201.jpg
