Cover of the 1937 Bucyrus Erie 950B sales brochure.
I've always been fascinated by with the Bucyrus Erie stripping shovels such as the 950B & 1050B. The huge sliding counterweight and it's support structure make these older shovels very interesting machines.
Unfortunately, finding info on these older machines can be a challange.
I've looked for some time, with no luck. But this time, Ebay came to the rescue. I found this booklet for sale and was lucky enough to be the winning bidder. Now that I've got my info, I thought I'd share it with those of you who may also be fascinated with these older machines.
