All of the company's major equipment product lines are covered, including rear-dump and bottom-dump haulers, scrapers, crawler dozers, wheel loaders, and blade-veyors. Also includes numerous military offerings, prototypes, and experimental designs, some of which have never been seen in publications before.

From the serious equipment historian, to the heavy equipment enthusiast, Euclid is packed with tons of the "green-iron" for your enjoyment.
