Wickham-Poole system

Post #1 by fang » Sun Sep 16, 2018 11:48 pm

Does anyone have any information on the Wickham-Poole trailer system. I have got a bot of info off google and Flickr, but I believe brochures were published on the system and various trailers available. Would anyone have such information?

Thanks

The County Tractors dvd has clips of tippers and bolster pipe trailers - I couldn't say which were Shawnee or Wickham. There used to be two of the bolster trailers in a field near Godalming. Probably gone now though.

Put Wickham-Poole into Google and select images, a good few come up. Also search Wickham-Poole in Flickr.

I did hear/read somewhere that Shawnee-Poole dumpers were more or less permanently connected to the tractor, whereas Wickham-Poole was a quick hitch system, but then there looks to be Shawnee-Poole dumpers in use with the Wickham-Poole system.

Any idea of the location of those Bolster trailers, trying to get some dimensions of them?

Hi,
This article from Commercial Motor Feb 1967 answers some of your questions.

Sorry, it's got to be at least 15 years ago. There was a farm sale and they were in the long grass, not part of the auction. Farncome springs to mind.
