Become a Member of the HCEA!

Although Historical Construction Equipment Association members are from all corners of the world and from all walks of life, there is a common thread that ties us all together. That bond is an interest in historic construction equipment and a concern for the preservation of these machines and their history.


Exclusive Member Benefits


One of the most important activities of the HCEA is the production of a quarterly magazine, Equipment Echoes. Each issue includes articles on various aspects of construction, dredging and surface mining equipment history, along with news columns, reviews, safety tips, classified ads, and more.
