    Wanted to buy for our Wildcat. One front-end loader, preferably in working order.
    We live in on the Great Ocean road in Victoria but would be willing to travel some distance to collect. phone 0355007200

    • johnarentz says:

      Hi Lawrie and Glenda , check out the FEL that Neil built for his RT45. I’m sure that the design principle would work on a Wildcat. It differs from the original equipment in that it hinges on the front of the machine. The minus of such a design is that your total lift height is diminished – but it is a straightforward build and very easily detached.

      • Lawrie and Glenda Cornell says:

        Hello John, Thank-you for the hint and information but we want a Genuine model to restore and take to Rallies with our Wildcat. We have just returned from a vintage rally and were wishing we had our Wildcat there with us as they had a Balance beam as part of the “things to do”. We are sure it would have made a very good contestant, even better than the ‘Grey Fergy’ which aquitted itself very well.

    • Lawrie and Glenda Cornell says:

      Although we would like a working FEL it is not necesssary as we will restore it . If we can obtain more than one which have seen better days and are a little sad we could make one from many.

    As part of on-going research, and in order to make this the premier website for all things Austrak, Wildcat and Supacat, we need YOUR help

    We are looking for documentation – marketing, technical, video and similar – relating to these machines, from the earliest ones to the latest

    Please let us know what you have and we will provide addresses to send the data to. Don’t worry if you can’t scan it – we can do it, if you send us the originals. We’ll send them back as soon as they are recorded

    Anything, even that dog-eared old brochure you’ve had in the draw for twenty five years, might fill in a gap in the knowledge base…

    Austrak RT-45 – Now Wrecking – Austrak RT-45

    I have a Lombardini 833 powered Austrak RT-45 that I am about to start wrecking soon (yair, other things happened and it was put on the backburner). Everything will be available, EXCEPT for the Engine, Pump drive transmission, Hydraulics and Engine cover

    OK, so they are the bits you wanted. Sorry. But the shell, axles, hubs, oil and fuel tanks, roll cage and a bull blade are still on offer

    “Offer” is the magic word here. The alternative is “scrap yard”

    So if you are interested, please call 0411 125 700 and make an offer. Don’t dwell on it though, because once I’ve pulled the above parts out, or sold bits and pieces off, it will be too late

    Of course if the offer is good enough, you might get the whole lot…

    Guys, A girl i work with (in Cooma NSW) has a wildcat for sale. It’s the green v4 petrol. unfortunately the engine is cactus. It has the slasher and blade with it. I would be interested if i could find an easy engine replacement. does anyone have a spare engine or know of an easy retrofit? What is a fare price with a dud engine?

    • Michael charlton says:

      Did this one in cooma sell? . I know it’s a long shot. Just interested in doing a restoration on an interesting bit of history. I’m located in Canberra ACT

  17. Neil 23 says:

    Wiring Diagram/Workshop Manual

    Guys, further to the above, i need to find out how to bypass the ignition switch as the owner can’t find the key. I’m trying to determine how cactus the engine really is before i make an offer. Does anyone have a wiring diagram for the Wisconsin v4 version?


  18. Ian says:

    Hi there

    I have been lurking around this site for a few years and am keen to pick up a Wildcat in need of restoration.
    I am an engineer and want to run both excavator and bucket attachments so expect to have to change the running gear and power drive base. For this reason I have decided that one wasting away in need of a dedicated rebuild would likely provide the perfect base.

    I would appreciate any such leads.

      Hi Ian, just found this page when looking for a possible new owner for an rt45 that is on a property we bought in St. Andrews. Flicking through I saw your post- the one here is in need of full rebuild after being burnt. I know it’s been a while since your post but if your interested I can send pics. Slasher and super spreader to suit also. Final drives etc been removed and in shed. Cheers , Julian. 0481328353.

  19. Neil says:

    Ian, I did purchase it. Prior to purchase I wasn’t able to determine much about the condition. I now have reasonable confidence in the hydraulics and know that the pistons/rings are corroded to the bores in two cylinders, one in each bank. At the time of purchase I was hoping that new pistons and a rebore would fix it but that’s not the case so at this stage I’m unsure whether I’ll move it on or rebuild it. I know a few guys are looking for resto projects so I’ll list it here if I decide to sell.


  20. johnarentz says:

    Hi Neil there look to be a couple of bore assemblies/jugs for sale on ebay.com in the USA for a total around 150 usd for the 2 they aren’t in that bad condition. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/WISCONSIN-VF4-VH4D-RIGHT-JUG-/370945006217?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item565e0b9a89 http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/WISCONSIN-VF4-VH4D-JUG-1-/370954331210?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item565e99e44a

  29. Peter Bailey says:

    From a deceased estate, an Austak RT45. The plan was to resore it, but sadly it never happened.
    The VM 3 cylinder engine, caught fire and was a right off.
    I believe the rest is ok, and there is a hydraulic slaher with it.
    There is a Hilux motor that was going to be fitted.
    The tyres are good (one brand new)
    Also seperately available is a backhoe off a skid steer that was going to be fitted.
    The tractor is located near Romsey Vic and can be inspected by appointment. (usually on a weekend)
    best offer..

    • Michael charlton says:

      Hi James
      Where are you located and is the wildcat still for sale
      Canberra ACT

      • johnarentz says:

        Hi Michael,

        James is located in Tasmania. At one point I believe he was trying to sell his Dad’s Wildcat on, but I’m not sure if that is still the case. I think the machine was purchased by James’ father for something like 6 grand, you can see it on the website labelled as Alan’s Wildcat, they are located in Tasmania. Give James a ring on 0477150294 if you are interested and see what he has to say, it is not without issues but I would say in terms of all round general condition it is excellent. The one from Cooma was sold for 3 grand. I’m not sure who bought it but the aim of he purchaser was to rebuild it. (It had a dud motor). A good quality shell was sold recently on ebay for considerably less than that. The biggest issues when purchasing one as a project concern corrosion in the tub and failure of the Wisconsin motor (often through water entering the exhaust manifold and running into the cylinder assemblies). They are old machines now and many of them have been left in paddocks or covered in plastic (which will collect condensation and rust out the body as well as good old rain). I scrapped one here in Canberra earlier this year. It was a rolling shell but the structure was so badly rusted it was beyond repair.

        Do you want to post a wanted on the site…if so just forward it and I’ll put it up. I put one up last week and someone came up with an Austrak RT45 pretty much straight away…much to my surprise.

      • johnarentz says:

        Hi Peter,
        I’m happy to put up your machine on the front page of the Austrak-Wildcat site if you would like, a lot of people don’t explore much beyond the first page. I think it would be better with a pic or two and some more info about the machine itself (eg: shaft or chain drive, engine details etc.) a general location and an idea of price. Anyway if you want that just send me the info/pics at austrakwildcat@gmail.com and I’ll put it up. Other users here have had good fortune in selling their machines on Ebay and/or Gumtree as well as through this blog. Gumtree is free and allows multiple pics to be uploaded. Hope this is of some help. John Arentz

  33. Col Richards says:

    I’ve recently purchased an Austrak RT-45 (the one from EA auctions in Tullamarine) and got it home. It’s got the Lombardini 833 engine but has nothing bolted on the flywheel end. Is somebody able to help me out with drawings/photos etc so I can begin to hunt down the parts that are missing?
    Any help would be much appreciated, as I’d love to have it up and running to slash some blackberries this season.

    I have a Wisconsin V4 engine that was stripped and refurbished ready for reassembly and placement int a wildcat. Some of the parts are new in box. It is based in Sydney and I have no further need for it so it remains in pieces.
    Free to a good home rather than the scrap bin.

    Hi Ian,
    I don’t suppose you have any reduction box or drive pump bits?

  36. Mitchell O'Brien says:

    2 x Austrak RT45 for sale together with many spares including pumps, motors and general spares. The air cooled Lombardini engine is gear driven version with slasher and rippers. The water cooled VM motor version was one of the last sold by Gason’s and we received much help from Geoff Kendal who was involved with sorting this particular version. There are many and various parts and manuals, even some brochures I believe.
    They have been properly maintained through the years. The VM Austrak has a carry-all with 500 litre honda powered sprayer attached operating 2 reels. The Lombardini has not been used much in the last few years as we are not slashing, but was operating fine except for a seal issue which slowly allows engine oil into the gearbox. We haven’t had time to take this apart to fix.
    We are moving off the farm and would like the Austraks to go to someone who knows there value as they will continue to be useful to someone who knows how to look after them. Both of these have been garaged throughout their life.
    We are located in Maleny, in the hinterland of the Sunshine Coast in Queenlsand.

    I have a wildcat with a v4 Wisconsin engine however the hydraulic drive pumps are faulty. Can anyone advise of a reputable hydraulic repairer who maybe able to recondition them. Alternatively are there new replacement units available that could be installed with no or very little modification to the existing installation.
