    Definitely a TD9, and I can't remember the loader name for the life of me. Have seen pics of several in recent times, still running. King of Obsolete calls them Rocket Launchers due to them big vertical rams. He has one as I recall.

    Bruce, I know you won't believe me, but as I looked at the loader, I said to myself, "Bucyrus Erie." I then scrolled down to see your fab pics. If I am not mistaken, I think The King of Obsolete has one he retreived from the wastelands last winter.

    You would not be able to produce a machine like that these days with all the health and safety regs.lol.A lot of the older machines looked hard to operate and dangerous for the operator. Operators are spoiled these days.Even so,most of the old machines had air con as standard.No cab lol
