Hello again folks, I'm back with a solid 5 pack of construction equipment.
Starting us off, a set of CAT and Deere dumps.
A good comparison of similar models from competing manufacturers. I haven't actually operated an articulated dump, but from strictly appearance, I prefer the Deere.
A Komatsu PC260LC for United Rentals, whose headquarters are in Stamford, Connecticut.
An old Volvo BM L70.
I wasn't familiar with the "BM" part of the name, so after a little research, I learned the story: basically, BM stands for Bollinger-Munktell, a construction equipment manufacturer Volvo bought in 1950, which from what I could tell, is how they began producing front-end loaders, as BM had been, and Volvo had not. At some point, Volvo dropped the "BM" part of the name, which probably only appeared on loaders anyway.
