Early tractors, earthmovers and agricultural machines...
Graeme Craw, the collector, was a contractor building some of Auckland's important roads in the 1950s, including the northern approach to the Harbour Bridge, and Scenic Drive. Consequently, he amassed a large amount of earthmoving equipment, and developed a great appreciation for the early earthmovers that literally shaped the face of New Zealand with the Kauri Industry.
We have early tractors, 1909 Fitch Four Drive, a range of Allis Chalmers, Caterpillar, Farmall, Fowler, International Harvester, Case, Ferguson, Fiat, Aveling & Porter and many rare, unique bulldozers
Many are unrestored.
We also have scoops and graders from every period, some made in NZ (Thames, Christchurch), others being the only known surviving model of a certain type.
