You say 'state park', so my guess is rock crusher too. This is nearly complete one in a state park in western Mass. Someone in a Conn park found a complete almost restorable CaTaPeLaR, with the funny print cast into the frame. CCC and WPA projects took the rocks on the hill in back there and made crushed stone for road projects and concrete mixes. Lots of their equipment was in this age group, and since it was state or fed property, and WW2 was suppose to be over by Christmas, like WW1 was suppose to be, these machines were usually just covered with a tarp in 1942, and not seen again till 1972... now they are mysterious artifacts of an ancient civilization....
What park is this in? Upton State Forset is putting a museum together, and Mount Greylock likes to document this sort of stuff. It is most likely 'Fairbanks Morse Co Rutland Vermont'

Great Brook State Park in Carlisle MA.
Very close (Maybe 30 - 40 yards west of) trail marker #2.

I can't cut and paste, but just try to get ><
They probably can't move it, but they might get the head ranger there to preserve what's left and make one of those weather proof signs along the trail, give the hikers an idea what the heck it is... once they figure out exactly what it is...
A freind of my father, who was from the Upton area, was in a CCC camp on 'Mount Tom state park', on the Conneticutt River, and the gravel crusher he operated in the late 30's is still where it was then, and very few pieces missing.
Those guys are in their 90's and still involved with freinds of Upton.

None of the satellite maps (bing google, mapquest) I tried get quite close enough but 'old north road, carlisle ma') leads you right to it.

This road dead-ends in the park (it may be gated) but the wheel is in the brush on the left less than 100 yards past the last house/barn on old north road. If you come to a 5 or 6 way trail intersection marked with "2" you just walked past it.
