    TurningHead, Sir
    Thank you for your service at W&S.. I still use a #3 daily and it's a great machine. Also I certainly hope your not the last...
    Anyhow do you know of any other divisions of W&S that survive to this day other than Gradeall ?
    Stay safe

    I do not think any "spin off's survive. I believe it was Cross and Trecker that bought the last remnant (in the late 80's) including all intellectual property, and closed it for good. It was the 4th time in a decade that W / S changed hands.

    No you are not. The only division that is still around is the Gradall div. Management in New Phil.
    Ohio purchased the div and it is still in business.

    I knew about Gradall being in New Phili. I could be mistaken, but I do not think they have flown the W/S logo for decades now.
    The old timers used to meet for lunch once a month in Cleveland - Al Webber posted here regularly until his unexpected demise.
