    old Bucyrus erie and American crane plus

    a haul truck of unknown age. I know the dragline and haul truck work, to what degree can be debated though as the dragline doesn't like to crawl and the haul truck has a handy smokescreen so you can't see where it is!
    And came across this 966C while working hard at a county pit. And at the bottom where I park between trucks, shame this hard duty only lasts for 3 days at state wages.

    I didn't know B-E had a 25-B...but it's amazing how long some of those 769's have lasted.

    We have a 966c that is still operational @ one of our pits, a 76j. She leaks, jumps around a bit when the steering is moved just right, and has not been cared for real well in the last ten years... but never fails. Also In the company is a 22b crane, two 38b's one is a crane that is still active, and one with a shovel front on it.

    The 769s do last well. Here's a couple of pics of us removing a leaking suspension strut a few weeks ago.

    Bucyrus-Erie 22-B

    Here are some pictures of a 22-B that we recently restored. I still have the original purchase order from 1960 as well.

    How much did this 22B cost in 1960? We have a 1956 in similar condition with a 471 in it.

    Obviously this guy doesnt get on here very often, does anybody know what a machine like this would be worth in its day, my dad always tells me only the richest companies had one.
