Product Description

The Huletts were highly efficient materials handling machines unique to the Great Lakes. Invented by Clevelander George H. Hulette (1846-1923). The first, steam-powered, with a 10-ton-capacity grab bucket, went into service at Conneaut, Ohio, in 1899. It could unload an ore boat at the rate of 275 tons an hour.  Like later Huletts, these were electrically powered. The various motions of the 170ton bucket were controlled by an operator riding in a small cab in the vertical leg just above the bucket. Each machine could unload 1,000 tons an hour.  The Hulett's clear superiority over existing mechanical unloaders revolutionized ore handling and led to its rapid adoption throughout the lower-lake ore ports. Through 1960, more than 75 were built by Cleveland's Wellman-Seaver-Morgan Co. and its predecessor and successor firms. With the advent of self-unloading ore boats, most have been dismantled. This battery is the largest and oldest of those that survive. Z scale 1:220. Also designed it to move on rail car trucks both top piecce and lower base.
