The legendary Bucyrus-Erie company is known around the world. From the Panama
Canal to the largest dragline ever built ("Big Muskie"). Bucyrus also had
divisions in other countries including Ruston-Bucyrus in the United Kingdom and
Komatsu-Bucyrus in Japan. The legendary machines
of this company are now being brought to life in miniature by EMD - Engineering
Model Developments. Many of us drove by these working on construction and
road building sites when we were young. Now is your chance to collect a series
of these amazing machines in exacting detail. A line of shovels, cranes, draglines, clams, cranes and transit

15-B, 22-B, 30-B, 71-B, 88-B, 190-B, 280-B, 295-B and the 20-H. This is the
introductory list and may change.

in quarries, building roads, trenching and lifting. They were available as
cable shovels, cable hoes, draglines and cranes as both
crawler mounted machines and "Transit Machines" which were truck mounted.
This model is in 1:50 scale.
