    As I understand they only use it for railroad trucks.
    here 3way tippers still cover 70% of sales, we get them from factory, at fair price, no downtime.
    fastest i ever get truck produced was 5weeks including tipper body.
    plenty of options, lengths, heights, thickness of walls and floor, load securing hooks, trap, ladders, automatic sideboard, pneumatic locks....

    Found on Kenworth page, A versatile Kenworth Model J-6 from 1928. Built as a municipal railway truck, it featured a Buda engine, 179” wheelbase and a 6,000 lb. load capacity.

    as much know 3way tipper was patended in 1924 by meiller, probably only for area of europe

    My son gave the college the finger this semester. A full year of being jerked around, charged for classes that didn't happen, or pretended to happen, and then they increased tuition by 30% on top of that.

    He was actually berated by the college staff for refusing to take out student loans. There's something very, very rotten in that kingdom.

    suspension is being blocked by means of hydraulics on front axle, if there is mower with 3 arms than rear axle too.
    Counter weight should be located at end of it, road model has it. they probably could not fit on rail model due rail gear
