Talented Dad Builds Working Replica of Vintage Cat® Dozer for His Son

What do you get when you combine some spare lawnmower parts, CAD software and whole lot of creativity? If you’re YouTube user Ryan M, you get a mini dozer designed to match Caterpillar’s vintage Twenty Two tractor.

Ryan built the dozer for his young son, using a hydraulic drive system from one zero-turn mower and a 12.5-horsepower engine from another. The end result doesn’t just look fantastic—it also works! Ryan and his son have used it to push dirt and snow and even entered the mini dozer in a tractor pull.

This talented dad built a working replica of the Caterpillar Model Twenty Two tractor for his son, using leftover lawnmower parts and CAD software.
