Went with a buddy who is thinking about possibly having a go at this big rock crusher. This thing is a heavy monster. From what the owner said its manufacture date is 1902...don't know where he came up with that info...Anybody out there have any info or thoughts about it..?? Whats a fair price ?? Are there many around..? Thanks...

Rock crushers don't sell for "fair prices". They sell for outrageously high prices. Sorry I can't be more specific. They're fun to watch run at shows.

Neat looking machine and appears to be in great condition. Don't imagine there's very many of those still left. No idea as to value as never seen one like it in these parts.
