Quite frankly, this has to be the most interresting set of pictures i've seen on this forum so far......!!!
Link-Belt 290, either you have an opportunity to drive an incredible amount of miles per a week, either you live on an area where nobody ever scrap anything.....Whatever that is, you have very interresting pictures of interresting machines!!
I hope that whoever owns the Northwest 100DH is aware that their old machine is probably the last surviver of only half a dozen of machines ever built and that they will act accordingly(preserve the machine that is!!)

Theire are a lot of machines that i would put on my "scale model to built" list if i could get close enough to take measurements and pictures, including the LS4800, both Northwest hydraulic excavators, the H-W C14,..........
Many thanks for sharing these and please, bring more!!!!!
Regards.

Thank you, that really means a lot. A lot of this stuff I find either through google maps or word of mouth. Trust me there is a lot of old stuff near everybody you just have to know what to look for. The best places to look are yards, farms, abandoned facilities of any kind (this 40H and Hy-Hoe were sitting in a abandoned factory complex) or old pits. Once I have a suffiecent list a group of friends and I every other weekend hop in the car and drive around photographing this stuff. Its a lot of fun and its always nice to see this old stuff. Every machine thus far in this thread is either in Rhode Island, Conneticut, Massachusets, Vermont, New Hampshire, New Jersey or New York. Will be slowing branching out across the country hopefully soon. The 100DH is safe, the owners have told me it is the last one left. This machine is the same one in many of the promotional literature, it is the only one with the cab riser and then later in life it was painted yellow. The current owners bought it for use in their gravel pit and when that closed they decided to keep it. If you ever want measurements or detailed photos I would be happy to send them. I was acctually back up at the 55DH and Hein Warner yesterday.

Great photos, and keep them coming!!

Just out of curiosity; why is the LS-4800 is a rare machine?

Larry Kotkowski would probably like to have that Northwest 55-DH to restore.
Its kind of an odd size and I'm not sure of the exact number but they didn't make very many of them.

Link-Belt had the LS4800 and LS5400 in their product line from 1977 or so until 1984.Both machines are just about identical, the 5400 being less than a ton heavier than the 4800.Both machines were powered by a GM 6-71.
Another very rare Link-Belt machine is the LS6400 wich was a direct competitor to the Cat 245.
Once agauin, many thanks, John for posting pictures of those very interresting machines.
Best regards.
Max.

Hi again,
Little interresting detail about 2 machines shown here:The LS7400 and the Northwest 55DH has the same engine, a Detroit 12V71.The LS7400 is 20 tons (+- 50 000 lbs)heavier than the 55DH.....does that makes the 7400 underpowered or the 55 overpowered or a bit of both.....who knows!!
John,
It looks like the place where the Cat 824 is parked is loaded with interresting older Cat Equipment, including a 16 grader.....you got any more pictures??
Is it just my impression or you are a big fan of these off highway trucks(prime-movers and dump trucks)??
These Mack rock trucks seems in a hell of a nice shape.....
Max.

linkbelt290rb,

Dude ! You need to publish a photo book ! You have an amazing stash of classic construction equipment photographs. The book would make a great coffee table/conversation piece.

I do! It is Borggaard Construction's stuff in MA. They have 2 16's at their shop. If you go onto their website they list their complete fleet. Their Website

I do love the off highway trucks, but not as much as my friend Anthony who tends to look for them more than I lol. The 2 475's, M35, M50's and M65 belong to Suzio Corp out of CT.

Here are some more pictures from Suzio and borggaard.

If anyone likes trains, it an old GE sitting underneath the concrete plant. I have a pic of the tag if anyone wants more info.

Thank you! Means a lot! Love the older equipment and want to document as much as I can before a lot of it is gone.

Some of it belongs to friends, but the majority is through Google Maps
