The original caption reads, "The Universal Engineer Tractor never turns down a job. Bulldozing ability was designed in and built into this vehicle. Self-loading capacity increases operating weight to 50,000 lb. to provide tractive ability equal to large construction tractors. Another innovation is the ability to increase dozing capacity substantially by carrying part of the load and pushing the remainder. The tractor can be tilted for crowning roads or other engineering requirements. Dozer blade construction is such that a UET can tandem push another UET, thereby increasing working capacity. All these features mean the need for some types of crawler tractors will be reduced."
