Title: 82198 38 ton shay
Post by: montanarick on November 21, 2019, 12:01:28 AM
recently acquired a 38 ton shay two-truck model 82198 however it did not come with any user/instruction manual and I'm having a devil of a time trying to locate any?

Does anyone know where it/they can be obtained?

thanks

thanks for the response Bill.  I'll be sure to check these out, but is there any actual printed user instructions/manuals?

Been so long I can't remember what came with them. and my box is in storage.

Hopefully someone else will chime in with more detail.

I remember mine came with the typical bag of goodies like pick, pry bar, oil can, etc. and the water hose to fill from a stream.

The original 36 ton version came with an instruction booklet and video, but I don't think the later 38 ton version came with either.
