    Looks like 870 in the picture.

    They are ugly, but very cool!

    EDIT: I should add I didn't intend for that to be mean. They are very utilitarian looking is what I meant. In the interest of transparency, though, I'll leave it be.

    I just zoomed in on the picture. You are correct. Its an 870 Series. I guess the next question is whether its an 870G or 872G (6WD)? It looks like an 872, but there is a bracket in the way.

    All the equipment built at the Davenport Works have very boxy, flat utilitarian designs. They are significantly easier to repair and work on than Cat and Volvo. Simple, small, flat panels all around for the most part... and well, we don't have to worry about Volvo as much in the Motor Grader market these days.

    Volvo stopped manufacturing graders and rubber tires backhoes. They are now made by a Chinese company for them.
