    Got a new toy last month :D and I was wondering if anyone might have an idea of where I could find parts for an Osgood 200 shovel (1945). Possibly boom sheaves, sheet metal, or other parts?
    Anybody else have an Osgood?
    I do have the operators manual and the parts book.

    I did a little google search, appears the Army bought quite a few of them... maybe they mothballed a few...:)

    We just pulled a 200 out of the woods last week and hauled it to the scrap yard. It was an excavator not a shovel but many of the parts should interchange. Most of the sheetmetal was ruined when they unloaded it however the rest of it was intact. I droped it off on 12/10/09 so you may be able to contact them before they cut it up. Below is the info. on the scrap yard. Good luck!

    Haven't been here for a long while, but yes, I have a 200!

    Originally a Buda 6 cyl engine, replaced by a Dorman 4cyl diesel. Must have been a common conversion as I have a Dorman works drawing for the conversion? Still awaiting its turn in the shop......

    Just to say I have a set of manuals but they are the U.S. Army versions.
