10B Bucyrus Erie shovel/dragline

Recommended Posts

I'd like to find a 10B Bucyrus in any condition, whole or parts. I've been wanting a small friction machine to play around with and I think a 10B would hit me just about right. Any leads would be much appreciated! Have a very nice original 1974 IH Loadstar I'd trade if any interest is there. Thanks for looking!

I didn't think about them but I bet he would be the man to ask!

Are you set on a 10 or could you live with a 15? Paul

A 15 would be nice too... It might even be big enough to get a little work done. I like the idea of a 10 because they're so compact, and it was the first machine my uncle loaded gravel with when he was 14. Would a 15 be a 3/8 or 1/2 yard machine? Maybe close in size to a 350 Bantam or a model K Insley, I'm guessing?

What engine would have been in the 10 gas or diesel?, don't know what number we had.

The ones I've seen have been gas. A 10b is only about 17k lbs or so.

I actually found one for free on hcea, but it's already spoken for.

I know a fellow but he is way on the upper East coast. It is a bigger machine though. They just dug it out(was their dads) and was contemplating what to do with it. I told him I'd love to have it(like I need it or have a place for it), but how the hell would I get it to Ohio?

That looks like an Insley. I've got one of those picked out close to the house, too.

I'll be near it mid week and get the specs off the people. I believe it's a late 30's early 40's
