Hello Chris, I can't remember all the invavlement of OLIVER and BEge just wonder how close they where. Mite have found a pan scraper with what I call a loading wheel that has a dolly wheel and tough pull with hydraulics. Just wondering how rare a guesstimat of value, its hard to beleive to find one here in so. Il. If it available to buy want to just preserve the history of items connected to Oliver and partners of the company. Thank you for any insight Boco

The information I have on it states that Oliver bought BeGe in 1952, but when White bought Oliver in 1960, the BeGe plant was not included in the purchase. Similar to the Cletrac factory in Cleveland.

Sounds like you have found a Roto-Haul. They are quite rare, but I wouldn't begin to even know where to guess as to its value. Does it look something like this?
