Ian,

I ain't getting another IVECO product - the Magirus Deutz is gonna be the only IVECO product I want!

This Fee-art is a bogie drive tipper pulling a small bogey tipping pig trailer!

Ian,

My sincerest apologies to you - I wish I could just find out where this Fee-art in Dubbo lives so I can sneak up with me other camera and get some pictures!

Ian,

Today would have to be the fourth time I have seen this particular one - I think he hauls a lot of different things with it!

You say those things, I could also try a UHF radio on channel 4-0!

Hello Roland, Your link is interesting reading and fills in more knowledge, the books that came with the truck included a company story, some models made and workers conditions at the factory such as sun ray equipment at the clinic and smoking had been allowed since 1919. Our trucks ride is reason able even although the seat is fixed atop a pipe that goes through the cab floor to the chassis. Wesfarmers Co-operative were agents in WA so farmer shareholders became owners, our Shire council also had two tippers. Regards David.
