Pettibone

1961 PETTIBONE SUPER 8  Owned by the museum, this is our big forklift;  anything larger needs the military crane.  Powered by a 3-53 Detroit Diesel with an automatic transmission, it performs many of our heavy lifts and transports.  It is four wheel drive with three option steering.   

Buffalo Springfield

1926 BUFFALO-SPRINGFIELD ROAD ROLLER   This 12 ton model is owned by Paul Harvey and is only one of three known to exist.  Although it resembles a steam roller, it is powered by a 40 hp twin-cylinder, opposed gasoline engine by Buffalo-Springfield.  The stack at the front of the roller is actually the radiator with draft induced by the engine exhaust.  There is an air compressor mounted by the radiator to operate the scarfier mounted at the rear.
