Tilt Top Trailer

Tilt Top Trailer

A few manufacturers made tilt top trailers like this that were usually twenty tons capacity. Some were of the tag-a-long type meaning they were hooked on to the dump truck with a pintle hook rather than a fifth wheel like this.

The truck is a Mack B-81 (158” wb) from kit number 95145, the trailer is scratch built, the bulldozer is a Best 60 model from Rio Grande. The Best 60 is from the early 1920s and in this scene would not be a working machine, more likely being an antique being taken to a show.

Best and Holt were both innovators in early crawler tractor development and were merged in the mid 1920s to form the Caterpillar Tractor Co.
