I always think would I put that much weight behind one of to days diesel pickups after all there in the 350 hp and 850 trq range.

Neat history.

I don't think they would fare too well for very long...they are not intended to run full throttle all the time..is the horsepower rating the same for each?...brake horsepower vs. SAE net HP? I'm not sure it is the same...I should know that and I don't.

That's an impressive piece of wood. My grandpa hauled logs with a b75 here in Montana but nothing big like that. He said they didn't have on board scales back then and loads were measured and paid at the mill by the board foot. Thanks for sharing Paul, I love the old logging pics the most.

P.S. I wonder how much air are in his tires? The trailer tires a bulging a little bit but not bad considering the weight. Did they use heavier tires with thicker sidewals in the days before tag axles?

Neat picture. I wonder how he was able to steer it with the front tires barely touching the ground.

Mate I dont think people in Australia used heavier wall tyres we just used what tyre we could get most out of for the least amount of money most of us still do the same today

we never had tag axles out here almost all native wood in Australia is very hard hardwood and is that heavy it dosnt float at all so even though quite often our loads of wood might look small the wood is very heavy

A bit more useless information did you know that worlds tallest tree confirmed tree as it was cut down and measured was in Australia and as far as I know is still lying there at least it was 20 years ago

Now come one fellas time for you blokes to wack up some other photo's of B models with big loads on dont be shy now

Probably a hand full just to load that Shovel without laying it over .

Wood cribbing off the tail of the trailer and the bucket to stabilize it most likely. Looking at the primary sprocket road speed probably 10 to 15 mph on Cobble stone streets with solid tires. :notworthy: One thing is they didn't know it wasn't able to be done . . . 47.5 short tons on a 28 ton trailer!!!

Some great pics there. Doesn't seem like I've seen many old heavy haulers using jeeps. Seems like they hauled whatever they could fit or pull on five axles. Is that dozer one of those that has the winch on the side that is used as a crane?

looks like it is for tractor use like pulling a scraper. there is no boom or counterbalance weights like a cable layer would use, and there are no gimbles for mounting a blade to.
