Thank you. I did try. Most of the search in this goes back to Kress website or auction websites, which are sold out years ago. Sorry I should have mentioned this earlier.

You might try E-Bay, Craig's List and all of the other web based classifieds. Finding a tractor already configured for a specific load (Kress Slag Pot Carrier) may be too much to ask for.

Maybe your search isnt showing the USA results. My search for Cat 621F tractor yielded several results.

https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=Cat+621F+tractor&spf=1498834249994

I tried to link this a few times and failed.

This is a special type of 621F and manufactured only by Kress. Lead time of a brand new unit is closer to one year. The correct tractor machine is already sold. Others available are not really configured to this requirement. Sorry.

The tractor is damaged beyond repair. Although this is CAT 621F, the configuration is different and built by Kress. Therefore, what we require is CAT621F built by Kress. The usual tractor built for MG dont fit in. This has a dual operating console cabin - not a single operating console cabin for motor graders (MG).

Maybe they can take what you have and replace the necessary sections and parts...sort of an extensive overhaul...

Looked into it and and it is the reason for arriving at a decision of replacing the tractor only and use back the carrier. Tractor part is a total write off inclusive of the body, chassis etc.

I might try calling around to other foundries for any equipment they might have available, or coming available soon...

Any chance of converting a Kress slab carrier?

Slab carriers were available. Looked into it and the configurations are different. Cabs are sitting on slab carriers but for slag pot carriers, cab is on top of the tractor. So this option is out.
