Buddy L Locomotive Wrecking Crane & Two Coke/Dirt Excavators by Poll Mfg. Co. Pressed Steel Toys


Selling on Friday

One of the most important Buddy L toys is the Locomotive Wrecking Crane. This impressive mini machine has been treated to a full and complete professional restoration making it look probably better than it did some 90+ years ago. The operator's cabin floor and supporting beams, as well as the crane controls, the actual boom, hooks, treads, and boiler are all finished in gloss black paint while the corrugated roof, basic chassis, and tread supports are finished in dark red. All the pulleys and hooks have been freshly strung and this machine is ready to go to work. 25" L x 11" W x 23" H (with boom elevated). Also included are two loader Excavators by Poll Mfg. Co. - the first unit was a promotional piece for Koppers Coke and features a green base and tower with yellow hopper and scoop; the second is a Poll Midget Excavator with yellow hopper and scooper on a blue base. Both excavators need lifting mechanisms restrung and show minimal play wear with light patina from age. 7" L x 4" W x 19" H, lot of 3.
