Ralph E. Garber Enterprises was established in 1988. I worked for Caterpillar Inc., for 30 years and retired in 1996 at age 56. As a manager for 23 of my 30 years of service, I can relate the real models to the scale models with the collectors.
Since retiring, my wife, Verna, and I have been traveling around the country setting up at toy shows to sell and show the collectors what is available. Our objective is to educate the collectors about die cast models and to provide them with the latest models available at a reasonable and affordable price. We also purchase small and large collections of construction equipment models from collectors. Some of the pieces we collect are Caterpillar, Terex, Euclid, Liebherr, Clark, Dresser, Hitachi, International, Komatsu, Krupp, and Demag in all scales.
