Custom Heiliner Scraper & Euclid Bottom Dump

Dr. John Thiel created this wonderful version. The front of a Heiliner Scraper, Engine from a Marx Toy, and the rear section from a Euclid Bottom Dump have joined together to create a really cool version of this nice toy. If anyone has a clearer picture please send!


Notice the details like the exhaust, sun canopy, and engine

    I built this one, too. It’s not a CAT bulldozer engine. It’s a standard toy engine from Marx. I added a fan blade on the front of it. Heil made and sold the real machines in “sets” such that the drive unit could be hooked to either a scraper or a dumper wagon like this. I’ll see what I can do about a better picture.

    Hi I have a euclid truck with firestone tires and the trailer tires have a different tread than any ones I found on the internet, just wondering if this truck is at all rare, it is in excellent shape.
