    Antique rock crusher

    My dad bought this in 1995. I have a Vhs tape of running. Just reclaimed it from a brush row. Now trying to figure out how to move it. Freaking heavy!

    I'd bet an antique construction equipment association member would love to acquire your rock crusher.

    Check out this link to the Historical Construction Equipment Association.

    Historical Construction Equipment Association - Chapters

    I know some folks who are members of the Northeast Chapter and follow their events here:

    You may want to contact your local chapter and let them know you have something of potential interest.

    Worse come to worse, call in a scrapper. Sad way to go about it, considering that piece of equipment is pretty cool looking.
    I'd park it out front of my place and hang my mailbox from the end of the conveyor. Nice conversation piece, if ya don't mind mowing around it.

    The thing was built in 1879 if I read the number plate correctly. It would have been moved by mules back in the day!

    It's more mining than construction. The corner of Missouri where Joplin is located was home to many zinc and lead mines just after the Civil War.

    Moving metal

    If the wheel/axles aren't frozen you should be able to move it but it's clearly sunk into the ground and you might have to jack it out before trying to move it. I'd guess you could heavily oil the wheel/axles, jack it up and put something like 4 x 6's under each wheel to get it moving. After that, it's a case of short move or long move. Short move- tow it. Long move, find a low boy or heavy rollback and move it that way. A roll back might be able to pull it up without jacking as the winch has some lift as well as pull.

    It's an awesome piece of machinery, I hope you can get it running again. Was power from a flat belt or does it have a power unit?

    Yeah, after looking with my glasses on, it does look like a "3" instead of a "7". Makes it less cool to me as it was probably used in my lifetime.
