Shay Stutsman, project manager for Stutsman Gerbaz Excavating in Snowmass, Colorado, is a third generation contractor. “I got into collecting because as a young boy all I wanted to do was to play with the real equipment, so my dad gave me the next best thing: a model of my favorite machine, a Cat 953 loader.” When the company bought a D Series Cat 953 in 2008, Stutsman had a model built to match, including company and dealer decals.
