1947 Mack LFT with a 1953 Fruehauf Dump Trailer

Recommended Posts

I looked at that truck and it stumped me. How did the dump trailer work?    The pto had a 90 degree gear box and ran up through the fithwheel.

Don't know about this one, but alot of old dump trailers were cable operated by a winch on the tractor.    terry:D

Believe  you're  right  Hobert62. I  remember  it from Macungie. Very  interesting  set-up,to say the least. Al

So did it power hydraulics on the trailer or did the box go up mechanically???

I have bits and pieces of one of these, the body is hydraulic, pump mounted to the base of the cylinder.
