BLH model 945 Hydraulic backhoe

The BLH model 945 backhoe was produced in the late 1960's around 1968. Location unknown. I don't have much information on this machine as Lima changed these machines a short time later and made a newer machine. Compare picture #2059 in 1928 to 40 years later and see the progress Lima made in these type of machines.

These were a rather big machine, probably too big for the job pictured. This was really just a hydraulic backhoe mounted on their crane. Unlike today's excavators, these drove more like an old crane where steering and traveling were not independent, and gear driven from the house of the machine (ie slow). Lima's next series of excavators, 2505/3505/4505 had tracks driven by hydraulic motors, typical of today's machines.
