Pretty cool machine.

To display the picture in your blog just put a ! before and after the link. Like above. Then change the size to 640×480 to display the whole picture.

Poitras was a Canadian company, bought out by General. General actually continued producing that model for a while. It was probably made in the Mid 70’s.

You have gotten a nice toy to play with. I just hope you had plenty of help moving it. At a 1000 lb that is a monster.

It was tough to move, but well worth it. The date stamp is 1988.

It only has 4-5 hours on it in almost 20 years.
