Re: LIMA 1201

Thank you Fowler Man. I found, and checked out, that thread. Very interesting pics of the machine's at work, and the Crossley engines :claphands:
As a follow-up, here are some scans from my LIMA 802 brochure, which I believe is from 1952. The rotating deck shots show the V-8 CAT D17000 power-unit.

Scanned from a brochure dated 11/49. Click image to enlarge. The 3-to-3.5 cubic yard 1201 was made from 1939 thru 1959. I have read that some were license-built by Glasgow's North British Locomotive Co. for Jack Olding & Co., Ltd., in Hatfield, Hertfordshire. These had Crossley EST4/875 4-cylind...

Hanson 654-H

Scans from a sheet dated 9/61. I've read that Hanson made a lot of crane/excavators and hydraulic cranes for the US military. As far as civilian sales, I've never seen one, or heard of anyone having experience with these. Click image to enlarge. :eh:

BYERS 83 (late cab)

Scans from brochure dated 7/50. BYERS was taken over by LORAIN in 1955. I've read that the product line ended in 1958, but I'm not sure that was the case. I do believe that BYERS was the first with independant swing/travel/hoist. This is one of the three most rare and valued brochures in my collecti...

Re: Oshkosh R-series

If the 1693T CAT motor was one of the power options, you could (theoretically) fit a V-12 Detroit in there. The length of these two engines were about the same. From the size of the radiator grille, cooling the later probably wouldn't have been a problem if a slightly larger radiator was installed. ...

Re: happy xmas to all !

Good food, good friends, and family, and I don't have to travel far. If any of you must travel, please have a safe trip to and from. And on New Year's Eve, have a drink for me, since I don't do that anymore :angel:

Re: Marching display USA

That took a bit of fore-thought and practice. I dug the tank tracks in motion :thumbup:
