  • c. 1939 Gardner-Denver wagon drill. Portable pneumatic drills like this transitioned from steel wheels to rubber tires to crawlers powered by air motors.
  • c. 1927 Galion Master 10-ton three-wheel roller. Spikes or cleats could be inserted in the holes in the large rear drums to provide traction when pulling a scarifier or grader for road maintenance.
  • Gledhill Road Shaper. This machine used an arrangement of skids, controlled by hand cranks and a crude hydraulic pump, to finish the surface of a dirt or gravel road.
  • 1954 Galion Iron Works 503 motor grader. Almost 5,000 503s were built from 1953 through 1971. This one is equipped to handle a front dozer or snow plow.

  • c. 1925 Galion Light Premier pull grader.
