By 1936, the progress of building the dam was greatly accelerated with the arrival of new heavy equipment. The men now had excavators, dump trucks, caterpillar tractors, box sleds, and a pull-type grader.

The CCC camp had storage sheds for equipment during periods of bad weather and a special maintenance crew to keep it operating properly.

The grader on display here is the grader that was used in the dam construction.
