Ted Color Caicture DrawingHi everyone and THANK YOU,

I just wanted to thank you for making my day, knowing that my efforts of trying to keep you informed about the Lindeman Crawler and Equipment hasn’t been for nothing, according to the counter on my site it has had over 15,000 visitors as of October 18th 2015.  I started this version of the site in early spring 2013, added the counter in September of that year.  This means that there have been a lot more that have visited then the counter shows.  I am very sure that you have been back more then ones and I thank you for that I hope it has been informative.
I am wanting to let you know that I am getting long in the tooth (OLD to all of the younger Lindeman enthusiast).  I am trying to pay ahead for the site to be up about a year after I am unable to maintain it any more.  I haven’t found anyone to take over the task and expenses of it yet.  If there are any photos that you want a digital copy of let me know at and I will add them to the Downloadable Photos page so you and anyone else can download them at no cost to you.  I have only added a few photos that you can download, download one to see if it good enough quality for you and then tell me which ones you would like to be added to the page.  I hope that you will take advantage of this before they are LOST TO THE WORLD.

Welcome to Lindeman Archives

Thank you for making me feel that it is worth my time and effort to keep this site going, there has been over 100 hits on the old sites per month since I started tracking it at the end of  July 2012. This new site with all the added information and photos I have added, I am sure there will be something for everyone.  I have added a lot of photos to the History and Implement pages, most of which were taken by Jesse Lindeman himself.  I have all these photos and am trying to share them with everyone that is interested in the Lindeman Crawler and family.  There is very little commentary on the pages right now, I will be adding more photos and commentary to the pages as time goes by. Click on any of the photos and they will take you to a new page with the same type of photos or take you to a enlarged version of that photo. On the new page click the photo and it will take you to a full size rendition, the photos are as I scanned them, as I get time they will be replaced with retouched ones along with commentary. Click your back button and it will take you back to the point your were at to continue.

If you have any comments leave them and I will try to give you the best answer I can.  Please click the comment link at the top of the page, telling me what you would like to see.  As I update any of the pages  I will post what I have done to keep you informed.

Thank you again for visiting the Lindeman Archives Site.
