    Are any of these old Hayes trucks laying around in a saveable condition or are most too far gone?

    Interesting pictures, thanks for posting. LeRoi was typically a brand name found on air compressors. Looks like someone repowered a skidder using an engine from a compressor, but I could be wrong, happens a lot. As I looked at the pictures, I found my self wondering how long it would take for time and mother nature to rust all that heavy iron away. At least several hundred years I would think? Any idea why it is out there and abandoned in place. Obsolete, went broke, or??

    I have all ways hated see machines rot away like that. Some of them look like they could work after you replaced the hoses, oil, filters, and maybe a seal or two.

    Yes, I’m the same. I would rather someone else took over a machine rather than just leave it to rust away. I find it hard to understand why it is all just abandoned. I would have thought there was some value still left when they stopped working even as parts or scrap.
