On the trail of heritage machines

Clark-Michigan rolled out it’s twin-engined scraper- the 110HT, in 1970. The machine was a reasonable success for C-M and over 1000 were produced. A small number trickled into NZ, although no-one is sure exactly how many arrived, or where they ended up working.

In 2009 Richard Campbell wrote about the NZ imports in a Classic Machines profile; explaining he was aware of at least seven 110HTs that had been landed here.

It was therefore a matter of interest when a member of the public contacted us last week with the news that he had photographed one of these rare machines, sitting in place on a farm near Auckland.
