  • 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.
