Central Ohio's Marion 7800 sitting near McConnelsville,Ohio

This Machine was put into service in June, 1957. Swinging a 35 Yd. bucket at the end of it's 220' boom, this machine was probably considered to be a giant, at the time it was built.

The 7800 is located not far from the Big Muskie monument (near McConnelsville). If you make it to the monument, it may be worth the time to drive around and look for the 7800, the boom should be easy to spot from the road.
