Came across a 1950s era yarding machine in pretty good shape. These things were very common in this region, are are essentially a improvement on the ‘stream donkey’. This one appears to have come to rest in the headwaters of Grizzly Creek for unknown reasons. The engine was made by none other than Hercules, who produced over 1 million industrial grade engines foe the US military during their 24-hours a day operations in WWII. It looked like someone tried to get this thing running not too long ago, as evidenced by some newer looking hoses and a modern battery.
