Hi, I am new here (first post). I looking for a picture of a Eimco mucking machine (working or not) like I ran in the late 60's early 70's on tunnel projects for the California aqueduct project in the late sixties. Operator sat in front enclosed in expanded metal with a solid trap door type hatch to enter machine. See below picture.... Thanks!

That must have been nice having an Eimco where you got to sit and run the thing, all the ones I have seen the poor guy running it had to stand on the side of it between it and the ribs.

I believe that was a model 630. We might have a picture of one that is at an equipment dealer. Would that help. The 630 weighed 10,350lbs.
