.While i understand the setup as far as weight distribution goes............
If the legs were down on anything but a super solid surface they are just going
to disappear out of sight when the load comes onto them ............
Not much use then ............
From what I know these were purpose made for carting mineral sands I believe and tipping was carried out at the processing plant or maybe batching plants dunno
The photo I had of it tipped was on a concrete slab that may of been a batching plant or processing plant
Might of even been a Atkinsion add as the truck was the star in the photo
Cant remember now, its over 5 minutes ago
Your better to die trying than live on your knees begging
Kept looking at the photo of the Atki with the tipper, partition 2/3 way down the body ( carry two different products in one load??).
Suppose having a rigid tipping frame, way that its loaded in that shot, still pretty stable over the front two trlr axles.
I can see your reasoning Paul, but i don't think the Army models were ever actually called AACO at the time, but MK1, Mk 3, Mk 4, Mk 5, etc., and the civilian models arrived before the ACCO name appeared.
As for IHA machinery, are you sure it is GA and not GL? Many many models of machines had a GL prefix, but i have not encountered GA, unless that was for Gaston who made a lot of machines for IHA early on?
