Record Series Number: 1/101/386
Created by: Euclid (1907-2004)
Volume: 3.25 Linear Feet
Arrangement:

Group 1, Machinery Records, is arranged by record format, record type, subseries, machine class, machine model, and publication date (where known).

Euclid’s unique model nomenclature for prime movers, wheel tractors, scrapers and bottom dump trucks and wagons, combined with the sheer bulk of records discussing its end dump and bottom dump trucks, made a specialized classification system by machine type necessary for sales literature and other class- or model-specific records.

Service literature arrangement:

The great majority of Euclid service literature consists of Maintenance Manuals and Parts Books.

The Maintenance Manuals consist of individual documents, ranging from one to perhaps 20 pages, each discussing a specific subject and organized by area of the machine. These documents exist in two formats. There is a two-volume set of Master Maintenance Manuals, consisting of unbound compilations of all the documents for all machines arranged into sections by subject, then by publication number, and various manuals that were assembled by Euclid for particular models or series of models. Apparently, the Master Maintenance Manuals were compiled in the 1950s, and they were evidently replaced by manuals issued for specific model series in the early 1960s that used the same pages and format but only in a bound volume.

As published, these documents typically do not identify the machine(s) to which they apply; however, there are indexes for each series of model numbers in the master copy of the Master Maintenance Manual. This Manual also includes a separate section for the BV series belt loader. An entirely separate manual was published for crawler tractors.

These Manuals were found in the files, in the form of two Volume 1 binders, one Volume 2 binder, and two unnumbered binders containing volumes 1 and 2. The contents of each of the volume 1 binders differed from the other two in terms of currency and completeness. The contents of all three binders were recompiled into a master reference copy consisting of the most recent editions of each document, a backup copy and a stack of extra copies. The master reference copy also includes some obsolete documents and contents pages when they contained information not reflected in the newest issues. One binder was found to have the contents of a crawler tractor manual interfiled with the correct contents; these were removed and filed separately. This was also observed and undertaken for the two volume 2 binders. The master reference and backup copies were placed back in original binders for historic value.

No effort has been made to reconcile the Master Maintenance Manuals to the maintenance manuals for the individual model series. Duplicates were observed among them, and standard procedure was followed in culling obsolete and shopworn extras.

Exact model coverage in the operation and maintenance manuals can vary. For example, one operation and maintenance manual encompasses all end dumps with mechanical transmissions, and another encompasses both the FDT and TDT series three-axle twin-power motor scrapers. Maintenance manuals were issued for various combinations of motor scrapers as follows:

Sep 1958 – S7, S12

Jul 1964 – S7, TS14, TTS14

Aug 1964 – S18, S24, TS18, TS24

May 1966 – S7, TS14

In May 1963, a separate manual was issued for the S28.

A compilation of parts pages discusses the company’s early machines from the 1930s. The rest of the parts books are dated from the 1950s and later. These newer books were issued for both a range of serial numbers for a given model, and for specific serial numbers. They include both loose-leaf and bound volumes; the bound volumes consist of the same pages as used in the loose-leaf volumes. The collection also includes master and backup sets of comprehensive Master Parts Books for all 74TD R35 end dumps.

Biographical Note for Euclid (1907-2004) :

The company that became Euclid was founded in 1907 in Wickliffe, Ohio, by George A. Armington as the Armington Electric Hoist Company. It was renamed Euclid Crane & Hoist Company when the plant was relocated to Euclid, Ohio. Euclid built experimental tractors (one crawler and several wheeled) c. 1920s, and entered the construction equipment industry when it introduced the Automatic Rotary Scraper in 1924. Acceptance of the scrapers led to the creation of the Road Machinery Division in 1926, and the Division was incorporated as the Euclid Road Machinery Company, a subsidiary of the Euclid Armington Corporation, on Jul 11, 1931. The Euclid Road Machinery Company became independent of Euclid Armington on Jan 1, 1933, and no record is known to exist of Euclid Crane & Hoist after this.

Euclid operated a Railway Transportation Division in 1935-36; this division built several small diesel-electric locomotives for railroad switching, then left the business.

Euclid began production in Motherwell, Scotland in 1951. General Motors, which had been exploring entry into the heavy construction equipment market, acquired Euclid on Sep 30, 1953 and made it a division of GMC on Jan 1, 1954; in the mid-1950s, GMC built a new factory for Euclid at Hudson, Ohio.

The U. S. Department of Justice filed an anti-trust action against GMC on Oct 15, 1959 on the allegation that GMC threatened to control the off-road hauler market. To settle, GMC negotiated with White Motor Corporation (Collection 1601) during 1967 for the sale of certain parts of the Euclid Division, and on Feb 15, 1968 White purchased the Euclid off-road truck lines. GMC retained the right to build and market haulers from Canadian plants and the former Euclid factories in Hudson and Scotland, but was barred from re-entering the US market until Jul 1, 1972. The former Euclid tractor, scraper and loader lines were also retained by GM and were produced by its Earthmoving Equipment Division, which became Terex (Collection 532). The British operation retained the Euclid (Great Britain), Ltd. name until December, 1968, when it was renamed General Motors Scotland, Ltd. Euclid lost its international manufacturing and marketing in the deal.

White operated Euclid as a subsidiary under the name of Euclid, Inc., then sold it to Daimler-Benz AG as a subsidiary in Aug 1977. Daimler-Benz sold Euclid to the Clark Michigan Company, the construction machinery subsidiary to Clark Equipment Company (Collection 252), in Jan 1984.

In answer to poor economic conditions, Clark formed a 50/50 joint venture company with Volvo AB (Collection 5) in 1985.  The new firm was called VME, an acronym for Volvo Michigan Euclid, and operated in separate units, Volvo BM Company in Europe and VME Americas in North America. The European unit became simply VME in 1989. In 1991, VME Americas was divided into VME Industries North America to handle Euclid products and VME Sales North America to handle wheel loaders and articulated trucks.

VME Industries North America formed a joint venture with Hitachi Construction Machinery Company Ltd. (Collection 423) of Japan in Dec 1993. Hitachi acquired a 19.5% share of the Euclid US operations, and the venture was called Euclid-Hitachi Heavy Equipment Ltd. The VME name was eliminated in May 1995 when Volvo’s parent company purchased Clark’s share of the VME venture, and the former VME was renamed Volvo Construction Equipment Corporation.  By 1996, Hitachi had increased its shares of Euclid to 40%. On Jan 1, 2004. Hitachi renamed its Euclid-Hitachi Heavy Equipment Ltd. of Guelph, Ontario to Hitachi Construction Truck Manufacturing Ltd., abolishing the Euclid name.

See Euclid and Terex Earthmoving Equipment (Orlemann, 1997), for comprehensive discussion of Euclid’s history, and Equipment Echoes issues 56 and 57 for a photo story on early Euclid products.

Major patents and innovations:

Euclid introduced the first successful off-highway end dump and bottom dump trucks, and the first articulated wheel loader to achieve widespread success. It was famous for its “Twin-Power” trucks, scrapers and crawler tractors. It also patented the traveling belt loader.

Model nomenclature:

Truck and motor scraper nomenclature is discussed in records in the collection.

The BV model nomenclature for traveling belt loaders stood for BladeVeyor. 213 BVs were built, using a separate serial number system from all other products.

Wheeled scraper model nomenclature:

½ yard - None, became ¾ yard.

1 yard - S1

1½ yard - S112 (Formerly 1¼ yard)

HD - SS112 (Heavy Duty).

Physical Access Notes: Many older records in Group 1 Series 1 Subseries 1 are in poor physical condition.
Acquisition Notes:   

This is an artificial collection comprised of records from multiple accessions. Initial records in this collection were found in files.

The majority of the sales literature was used in the sales, marketing and evaluation of Euclid (prior to 02/01/1968) and Terex products, and for evaluation of competitors’ products, at the Euclid and Terex market engineering divisions, and was donated to the HCEA by Bill Borthwick and Madonna Duwaso of the Terex Marketing Department in the summer of 1992.

Mr. Borthwick, the Manager of Marketing Analysis, accumulated extensive files of sales literature, manuals, clippings, correspondence, sales and manufacturing statistics, annual reports and other records during his 25-year career with Euclid and Terex, and donated them to the HCEA when Terex relocated its offices from Hudson, Ohio to Tulsa, Oklahoma. His records included specifications on almost every machine produced by Euclid from c. 1945 through 02/1968 and by Terex from 1968 to the 1980s, extensive sales literature on competing brands and roughly 8 lineal feet of annual reports for earthmoving equipment manufacturers for the 1960s and 1970s.

The clippings, correspondence, annual reports, statistics and other business records have been set aside as Terex Corporation – Bill Borthwick Papers, Collection 4. 

The remaining Euclid records are assembled into artificial collections by record type. Other records have been added to the collection as they have been received; additional records have been added primarily from:

• Columbus Equipment Company

• Ferris State College

• Ohio Operating Engineers Apprenticeship Program.

In December 2004, Accession 2004-0164, consisting of 556 digital images donated by Eric C. Orlemann, was added to this collection. Some of the images are also found in Collection 8, Euclid Road Machinery Co. - Raymond Q. Armington Collection, and probably Collection 11, Euclid/Terex Project Photograph Collection.
