The load is balanced by carrying equal load on each side.

We saw dozens of examples of this style of transport in use in China.

We went to the Summer Palace in Beijing and there is a hill that was made by digging a lake and transporting the spoil about 1klm to make the hill.

This was done several hundred years ago and no doubt all the spoil was transported by coolies in yokes.

I did some guestimating and the hill contained well over 15 million cubic metres of spoil. All moved a few shovelfuls at a time.

770723Sa Melbourne (International) Airport - Qantas (Acco?) scissors lift. (Roderick Smith)
It seems taller than needed for an aircraft height, but I guess clearing rubbish and/or delivering food to a B747.
International? Acco? 'Butterbox'?
