Buy/Sell/Trade The HCEA’s marketplace for buying, selling or trading antique equipment and anything related to it, including parts, services, memorabilia and collectibles. We do not accept postings for modern equipment, as there are other sites such as Rock and Dirt, Machinery Trader and Construction Equipment Guide that are more appropriate. Neither do we accept anything not pertaining to antique equipment.

Shows and Events Use this forum to publicize your upcoming antique tractor, equipment or truck show. Please be certain to include the date, location, hours and contact information, as well as any other information that will attract people to your event.
