Hello again Andrew,
I have found a pic of a rather sorry looking Onions 4/6H box. (See below).

From-

Most of the Vickers-Onions scraper models were cable controlled but they did later add a small hydraulic version with a six cubic yard capacity which was suitable for wheeled tractors such as the 4WD County and Muir-Hill tractors. These being used on small sites such as tips, sports fields and access roads.

Guess 4/6H meant struck / heaped capacity in cu.yd.s and Hydraulic.
