Due to the COVID-19 Outbreak, the HCEA office and the National Construction Equipment Museum is closed to the public until further notice. We are taking phone calls between 9:00 and 4:30 Eastern, replying to e-mails, and receiving and processing mail, merchandise orders and information requests, but please be patient with delays.

At this time, we are still planning on holding our annual International Convention and Old Equipment Exposition August 28-30 near Concordia, Kansas. 

Updates will be posted here and to our social media pages. Thank you for your understanding, and be well.

  • 1947 Syntron gas jackhammer. A two-cycle gas engine powers a cylinder that strikes the hammer. The shipping crate is original!
  • c. 1918 Studebaker horse-drawn water wagon. The handle-operated pump fills the tank, and water sprinkles out the back bar to lay dust.
  • 1946 Sterling 10-ton flatbed truck, believed to have built for the U. S. Navy as a carrier for an airplane crash retrieval crane.
  • 1963 Schramm COUH 125cfm Pneumatractor. This rig combines the functions of an industrial wheel tractor and air compressor into one machine, and could be equipped with a variety of attachments.
  • 1920s Schramm Self-Propelled Compressor. The rear axle carries the air compressor, which is riveted to and powered by the Fordson tractor.
  • Early 1940s Schramm Fordair 60cfm air compressor. Its wooden wagon wheels attest to the rationing of rubber for tires during World War II.
