Before Christmas, our founder Tom Evans, sold all 8 of our repaired 657E scrapers. Since then, we have cut the sides of the coal bowls down and we added a fresh coat of our signature yellow paint. After running these machines through rigorous tests and verifying that they pass Evans Equipment inspection, we called the freight trucks!
It takes two trucks to move one of our scrapers out of here. The bowl gets loaded onto one drop deck trailer and the tractor gets loaded up on another. The picture shows a drop deck trailer with a top deck machine!
We had two scrapers leave our lot here in Concordia, Missouri on Friday and another scraper is getting loaded up to leave now as I type this out for you. All 8 will be gone between now and the middle of February, to which we will say “Adios!”
We just bought two 972H wheel loaders and a 637G scraper which we will start rebuilding once our 657Es are off to work with their new owners!
