Old snow plow trucks

Soon the familiar sound of the grader laboring to get up our steep hill set the seed for what is in store for today. This model was first introduced in The location of the engine helped with the traction needed to push both a city street plow along with the grader blade and provided space for it in the middle of the machine. The driver had to know how to double clutch to shift, probably had to deal with high-effort steering, and he also had to adjust the height of the plow blade with the large hand wheel visible inside the cab when necessary.

It appears the grader blade operator used both of the extra-large hand wheels in the center compartment to change the height and angle of the grader blade. The first one I ran had a 6 cyl. It had wooden spoke wheels and a Climax engine if I remember right. The cab was partially made of wood. I have no idea what year the machine was made.

Great truck but plower disattaches every time my son plays with it. We end up just hiding it from him. Save money and buy truck without snowplower. Add to cart. In Stock. My son had been asking for a snowplow for over a year. He loves to watch them every year clear the driveway and roads. So we did some searching, thinking we would never find a snowplow for him.

Then we found this one. We ordered it for his birthday, and he loved it! We took it outside and filled it with salt to try it out. Unfortunately, the salt doesn't stay in.

It spilled over the porch. But that didn't stop him! He's played with it for 6 months, then it finally snowed. It works great outside too! My problem is that he pushes too hard on the top, making the plow not work right and fall off. We ended up zip tied the plow to the front, which really helped!

This is an amazing truck but unfortunately it did not survive my 4 year old, which was our fear.This is the second in a series of interesting photos showing vehicles used for snow removal between the years of and After researching the subject it was found that keeping the streets and roads open was a major problem for towns, cities and states up until around the mids.

At that point, heavy-duty machines were beginning to be produced that were able to deal with most of it. If the snow was allowed to pile up, the limited horsepower that early trucks, tractors, and crawlers had, was not enough to push through a heavy accumulation.

Up until the s and on through the Great Depression, some hand shoveling continued and was assisted by machinery. In the first part of this coverage, you can learn more about some of the early methods and machines used on up until the mid-teens.

Since the electrically-powered streetcar came on the scene in the late s and became powerful and reliable enough to clear its own way, it was equipped with a front-mounted plow. If the streetcars were kept running through a storm, in most instances the vehicles could keep the tracks clear.

With the use of a wing plow, the vehicles could keep the width of a city street clear. The streetcar fitted with such a plow above is seen clearing snow on Berkeley Street in Boston, Massachusetts on March 2, By the mid-teens, the heavy duty truck had been developed enough so that it was capable of keeping up with a big storm if the operation was repeated and the snow was not allowed to build up.

In the photo, it is hauling away hand shoveled snow. The Automotive Industries February 3, issue pictured one of the early conveyer systems in New York City that was used for loading snow into trucks. This self-propelled unit with a full-width conveyer could feed itself, but often the snow and ice was broken up and piled or shoveled into them by laborers.

This machine invented by Dr. Samuel Friedman would fill the ten cubic yard top compartment with snow. When it was full, a door on either side could be opened, and the snow would fall into a waiting truck and be hauled away. Oddly it is equipped with acetylene headlamps at this late date. Indiana manufactured the trucks between and when it became a subsidiary of the White Truck Company.

Production continued under the Indiana name until The late s photo above shows how many cities dealt with snow that built up at the curb after being plowed by heavy equipment. Some large cities like New York that had large-sized sewage tunnels with an adequate flow would dump the snow into them to save on trucking. This huge Oshkosh four-wheel drive truck is also pictured in the lead photo at the top of the post, shows how far the truck had been developed by that time.

This unit had enough power and stamina to push the large V-shaped plow and is also equipped with wing plows for pushing back the snow banks. It continued to be used on Oregon highways for two more decades. The three front mounted augers moved and pushed the snow back into a blower that discharged it into an incomplete rectangular chute visible just in front of the right front fender.

These snow blowers took quite a bit of horsepower to run, and a separate rear-mounted engine powered the unit.
