The Trader tipper drivers have great confidence in the dragline operator :)

Is the dumper picture in Thailand? I think they named a place after it!
Who built the 6x6 Trader? I want to suggest Reynolds Boughton but I doubt it.

Did County make Trader conversions?

Great pics as ever Steve :claphands: the last one is a Poclain GC120 on the back of the blue Volvo low-loader. :thumbup:

I would never have though of AWD, thanks for that. The link is interesting, although I'd love to know how by dismantling a Fourdrive or a Superfour they were able to produce a driven front axle. I wonder if it was actually a Roadless front axle they were working with.
Yes County did convert Traders, 6x2 and 6x4, but not 6x6 that I'm aware of although what went on in the prototype shed is anyone's guess!
