THE CALF DOZER
A Brief History
A miniature Bull Dozer designed for back filling trenches, levelling, stock piling and earth moving.Some other uses for machines have been found in the holds of ships for moving cargo within the reach of a grab. The compact size of the machine made it ideal for working in confined spaces.
Manufactured by Aveling-Barford Ltd, Invicta Works, Grantham, Lincolnshire, England and their Scotswood Works Newcastle-on-Tyne Northumberland, England.
The machine was designed and a prototype built in 1942-43 using some parts which were already available.
Production started at Grantham and the first machine serial no CD00099 was exported to Trinidad
in 1945. Although production continued at Grantham due to the expansion of the companies products further manufacturing facilities were needed. The company found suitable premises and a local workforce at Scotswood Works Newcastle-on-Tyne. Formerly used by Vickers Armstrong the company opened the works and transferred from Grantham the production of The Trench Cutter, Dumpers 1/2 to 1 cubic yard capacity, rollers from 30cwt to 8 tons and THE CALF DOZER.
