RG LeTourneau Heavy Equipment, The Mechanical Drive Era 1921-1953 (Book) AUD $69.95


 

 

The Mechanical Drive Era 1921-1953
   
   
   
   
In the history of heavy equipment development, no man's name is more respected or revered than that of R. G. LeTourneau.  Considered by many to be the dean of high-speed mobile earth-moving equipment, his designs of the 1920s, 30s and 40s laid the fundamental groundwork for many of the earth-moving machines we see on a daily basis today. 

Self propelled, rubber tired scrapers, bulldozing blades and rippers were all conceived under his engineering genius in the quest for moving material at the lowest-cost-per-yard.

The years between 1921 to 1953 saw many of R. G. LeTourneau's most important heavy-equipment introductions, such as the Carryall and the Tournapull. 

This first volume of fantastic mahine creations covers the early years up until the sale of the company to the Westinghouse Air Brake Company in 1953.  Standard production, special's and experimental machines in rare archival images, many in print for the very first time, help showcase what made R. G. LeTourneau so important in the heavy equipment industry.
