As far back as I can remember this heavy equipment has been parked in this same lot by the New York State Fair Grounds. They never move. There is quite a collection of vintage heavy equipment here. Check out those pull behind scrapers that would attach to a bulldozer or tractor. Very old school setup. Between the lineup of Euclid scrapers and Cat dozers there is a fortune of steel just sitting by the side of the highway. Other equipment seen include a very large Link-Belt excavator(not pictured), Drott wheel excavator and a Terex loaders. Good stuff. It’s hard to believe no one has placed an offer on this equipment. Despite their age they are contained behind a well kept industrial building so they must mean something to someone. Anyone have a clue on the status or story behind this equipment? Drop me a line if you do.
I received an email the other day from Matt who uncovered the back story on these machines. At one time the Euclids and Cats belonged to DW Winkleman, a contractor responsible for building the local interstates. Upon completion of the contracts the machines were sold at auction. The current owner, Luber Homes, last used the equipment in 2007 to move 20 million yards of earth. According to Matt the gentleman who owns this equipment has plans to restore them all…someday.
