The Kid Should See This

The Erie Steam Shovel Type B in action

Hear the unique (and loud) sounds of this Erie Steam Shovel Type B as it demonstrates some old school 1925-era, steam-powered hard work, a perfect video for any kid (or adult) that’s into the Virginia Lee Burton classic, Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel. The machine was created by the Erie Steam Shovel Company, formerly the Ball Engine Company of Erie, Pennsylvania, founded in 1883 before it changed names in 1922.
