The early Bulldoze in Melaka

This small machinery is a bulldozer that was used before 2nd world war to open up estates for rubber plantation in the interior of this states. Where other domestic farming still used a real bull that day.

Smaller bulldozers such as this was used to make pathways in the secondary jungle so that the workers could move about to cut down the trees and its clearance.

Chain Links track controlled its movement and 50% of petrol and 50% of kerosene generated power of its movement. See, if the old technology can adopt 50-50 fueling, why not at the present? We can put 50% petrol and 50% of other liquid for cost saving huh?
