Dr. John Thiel created this wonderful version. The front of a Heiliner Scraper, Engine from a Marx Toy, and the rear section from a Euclid Bottom Dump have joined together to create a really cool version of this nice toy. If anyone has a clearer picture please send!


Notice the details like the exhaust, sun canopy, and engine

This is to be pulled by a Doepke Cat Bulldozer.  Very Interesting. To whoever designed this and whoever owns it now; What a Great Machine.  Details anyone?

Green Excavator

Found this one on the internet years ago. If anyone has any details please share. What I do know is that it was built from a Unit 357.

Thank you CCM:  The track mounted equivalent to the UNIT 357, whether used as a crane, hoe, or shovel, was designated as a UNIT 514. With the release of the CCM track assemblies, collectors were inspired to create toy machines of their own, like this scratch built UNIT cable hoe built from an original Doepke crane cab with a solid steel boom, equalizer and custom paint job with UNIT factory striping.
