  • 1946 LaPlant-Choate C84 pull scraper. Allis-Chalmers acquired LaPlant-Choate in 1952.
  • Circa 1921 Leach concrete mixer. The elevated skip receives sand, gravel and cement, and concrete is dumped to the opposite side. It's powered by a Stover hit and miss gas engine.
  • c. 1950 LeTourneau C Tournadozer, an example of the first rubber-tired dozer. All functions are driven by electric motors, it steers by a toggle switch, and it has been modified for snow plowing.
  • Late 1930s-1940s LeTourneau D Carryall. This was one of the smallest examples of LeTourneau's extensive range of pull scrapers.
  • 1951 LeTourneau LP Carryall pull scraper. This scraper could be used as shown behind a large crawler tractor, or behind a C or Super C Tournapull rubber-tired tractor by removing the front axle.
  • 1952 LeTourneau D Roadster motor scraper. Technically, it is a D Roadster with an E9 Carryall scraper. All functions are powered by electricity from a diesel generator. (Ron Wozniak image)
  • c. 1945 LeTourneau D4 Airborne Tournapull with Q Carryall. Contrary to legend, these were never airdropped; during World War II, they were landed individually by glider. (Ron Wozniak image)
