That was exactly my thought, must have been a bit of a nightmare on loading duties. Great restoration though.
Not all those who wander are lost.

Operator comfort has come a long way with air con,stereo powershift etc.When I drove the Ford 136's visibility was very poor rearward.They did the job though even if it was slow.

nice looking sumitomo sh200 in background
On the visibility of the Wainroy in the rear position I worked for an old guy that had one in his gravel pit. THe seat flpped backwards and your bottom was sitting way up over the drivers position and you had fair visibility down to the bucket. The thing I didnt like was looking out to the side your line of sight was interfered with by the thin strip of metal over the big side window. It was pretty nice to run it in the winter loading manure with the hoe or gravel and getting to sit up in the cab pretty high up.
