Here are a couple of Hendricksons that were owned by Ed Kraemer & Son of Plain, Wi.(now The Kraemer Co.) Photo is from 1970.

Al, I got to be good friends with some of the guys and even got to drive a couple of their trucks. They told me if I wanted to see some big equipment I should come down to Plain in the late fall wh

Here's one of their factory trucks.

Nice trucks that you almost never see on the east coast.

Someone posted earlier that Hendrickson was building fire apparatus. That is partially correct; they were a big player in the fire apparatus chassis business, but as far as I know they never built the entire truck.

Money, sex, and fire; everybody thinks everyone else is getting more than they are!

My cousin Eddie Hodges was a broker for Elmhurst Chicago Stone Co.. As a kid, he had BD model Hendrickson's both diesel and gas jobs back in the 1960's. Then in the 1970's, he had the H models with the 190 Cummis with the 5 and 4 transmissions. They also had the H models with 6x6 conversions, that sat up higher than a normal 6x6. Meyer material, as well as John Aue Trucking, also had Hendrickson mixers. Mohr Redi Mix out of Oak Park still runs a couple of 1960 BD's hauling concrete .My cousin also had a couple of Hendrickson Bd's pulling semi dumps. I learned how to drive truck on the H models, going with My dad.
