    In Sept/Oct issue of Wheels of time there is a 8 page story about cranes mounted on trucks from The worlds first truck build crane. Built by Universal Crane Company in 1919 on a Mack AC truck. A nice restored 1966 American 4450.

    If I remember correct the Marion has a 3/4 yd bucket might seem small but the heck out of a hand shovel. Steam power is so quiet and smooth, A couple years ago I helped on his Steam tractor and I loved it pulled a 8 bottom plow. Steering sucks on the old steamers 12 or so spins of the wheel to get the chain to move the front wheels. Marion Oct 20 2013.jpg
