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.

  • c. 1920s Chain Belt Company Durex road pump. When concrete was mixed at the pour, water had to be piped or trucked to the mixer. The road pump maintained pressure in a long temporary pipeline.
  • 1947 Cleveland Formgrader Company formgrader. When fixed forms were used to shape concrete pavement, the formgrader would dig a shallow trench into which the forms were set.
  • 1920s Ted Carr & Company formgrader. The formgrader passed the spoil into a windrow by means of an auger under its frame. Formgraders fell out of use in the 1960s.
  • 1955 Cleveland Trencher Company 80W backfiller. This machine works like a dragline, using a bottomless bucket to pull spoil into a trench and a ram in the back to compact it.
  • c. 1963 Clark Michigan 175A Series I wheel loader. This machine is the Museum's garden tractor, snowplow and general workhorse. Bucket capacity is 2.25 cubic yards.
  • 1953 Clark Michigan 75A wheel loader. This was the first production unit of what was, at the time, the world’s most advanced rubber-tired loader line.
