Harnischfeger P&H 855B Crane-Shovel

Successor to the World War II Crawler Cranes, the Harnischfeger P&H Model 855B was made in a number of configurations as a shovel, dragline or other uses. The unit pictured is a Model 855BG-3, manufactured January 1961 with the Cat engine, as stamped on its dataplate. It was equipped with a dragline bucket. The technical manuals for this crane seem to refer to slightly different model and stock numbers:

TM 5-3810-201-12 CRANE-SHOVEL UNIT, CRAWLER MTD; 40-TON; 2 CU YD; DIESEL DRIVEN (W/HARNISCHFE ENGINE MODEL 687C-18-ES) (W/CATERPILLAR ENGINE MODEL D333TA) (HARNISCHFEGER MODEL 855BG-2) NON-WINTERIZED, NSN 3810-00-542-3 WINTERIZED, NSN 3810-00-542-3049 (HARNISCHFEGER MODEL 855BG-3) NON-WINTERIZED, (NSN 3810-00-786-5200) (REPRINTED W/BASIC INCL C2-3)
