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.

Also due to the outbreak, our 2020 International Convention & Old Equipment Exposition has been POSTPONED. Instead of this August, it will be held August 27-29, 2021, at the same location near Concordia, Kansas.  

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

Donating to the Archives


The Archives continues to solicit collections of sales and service literature, photographs and similar records that document the development, design, use and disposition of construction, dredging and surface mining machinery. If you are interested in donating to the HCEA Archives, please contact archivist Thomas Berry at tberry@hcea.net.


Because we are a 501(c)3 non-profit, the value of the donation can be taken as a tax deduction. While we cannot provide a value for the donation for tax purposes, the current resale value, may well serve for that purpose. Ask your tax accountant for details.
