Lizza Sand and Gravel in Pine Hollow RD in Oyster Bay still had 1 or 2 in the early 1960's. My uncle usually got the wheel of one.

One of the former foundries around here ran one into the 90's. Used it in the "slag pit" as very little to wear in the abrasive atmosphere. Pretty neat to watch as no hydraulics involved.

Very neat, thanks!   It looks like a frameless today without the scope.

I'm an old geyser who's been in trucking all my life and I'd never heard of a cable pull dump.  Very interesting.

Those must have been 30,000 lb rears Roncari had about 10 of those back in the 60's working out of the East Granby Ct pit.

this was basicly a cabless dump truck that you drove facing the dump end . they did not have hydraulics so you drove the thing toward the pile or where ever you were hauling to when you got where you wanted to dump you declutched it and stood on the brakes and hauled back on a huge lever, that and your momentum is what dumped the thing.

OK.  A Koehring Dumptor is the rig you are describing (I think).  I will post in Tractors and Equipment.
