Is EIMCO still in business? The only picture I have ever saw of one working was taken in Viet Nam in use by the USMC. I bought a brochure on the machines on Ebay, and all I can say is what a strange looking layout.
If I remember correctly they were in business up until at least the past few years . The EIMCO machines that I remember seeing and I had the opportunity to work on one . I was working for W.L. Haley & Co. in Nashville TN . They had one I don't remember the model Number but it had about a 8 or 9 yard bottom dump bucket (Clam Style). The company was using it in a underground excavating job . The reason it stands out was that it had the air cooled Deutz engine in it and it was the first machine of that nature I had ever seen up close . This was in 1987 . It kind of put me in the mind of an oversized scoop (like the ones used in underground mining applications) . There used to be a underground equipment dealer in the area where I live that had the EIMCO name on their sign but the went under a few years back .
I know two people that own Eimco dozers. I ran one of them the other day. It's a model 103mc. Its in great condition. I'd be glad to post some pictures of it. (If I can figure out how to.) I will take some photos of it in action. It's being used on my place to build a pond. I am also looking for any information on these machines. Anyone out there have one, run one, or worked on one? I know the military used them. I have came up with a few pictures of them being used in Vietnam. The one I am running is a '66. It's had a few mods made to it since it was built.
John, A fellow by the name of Clay Roselle had two of them about 4 or 5 years ago. He is located in SW Montana on the Idaho border on I-15.
the last phone number I had was 406 276 3290. His address was Box 38, Lima, MT 59739. He knew some about the machines, but was unable to locate current dealers then.
I had a 103c with a 105 blade on it. sturdy little machine. Ran circles around a d-7 I was working with. If anybody knows where I can get another one, give me a holler
Isn't it own now by Swedish Sandvik? I work for this company and I saw on the intranet links to Eimco mining equipment.

We have Eimco dozers and many parts to sell. My father died and we are sizing down and do not have a need for the tractors or parts and would like to see them go to someone who loved Eimco Dozers like Dad did.
I have a eimco mc103 (M64) and have been using it on the ranch for 10 years.Just love this machine. Have several pictures I can post if anyone is interested. Just started having a problem with the track tension cylender leaking grease. Anyone know where to locate a manual or where I could obtain a copy of one; it would be greatly appreciated.
