Default Yesteryear Truck Show

It is coming up to that time of year again. The Yesteryear Truck show at Wauchope NSW is being held on the 14th & 15th July. We have been going now for the last 5 or 6 years and we have seen this event grow bigger each year to the point that they are starting to run out of room.
Trucks are obviously the main event but tractors, engines and anything else are always welcomed by the host Club.
If you have been before this is a good time to start and have a look.
Hope to see you here.
John

Well the main arena was full and there was still more trucks parked up outside of the arena so it was full and a great weekend for all who attended. There was a good collection of IH tractors all around the same year model and about an extra 40 tractors including Humpty . A small engine display was made along with a drag saw in operation which made a good display.

That appears to have been a blast to attend.I would wear out the camera.
1 question I must ask, was that Caterpillar sitting on LOGS without a metal chassis on the trailer? SHHESSSH>
Dmv around here would give birth to baby ducks if they saw that coming towards them!

Hello all
If a little crawler on logs is mind blowing, tell them about the truck with the turntable mounted to timber rails Cobba.

Cheers Scott

You spotted it in one. Even our mermaids would gaol you if it was on the roads now but back then that is exactly how they transported the machinery around in the bush and usually when logging. Not only is the small dozer sitting on a couple of logs but the turntable on that truck is also built on a timber frame and that is how it was made and registered from new. Obviously not allowed now but they did do things differently back then.
This is not a good pic of the timber frame but you can get the idea of what they did.

great educational photos, all news to me, looks very practical,
like, who actually needs a low-loader trailer when there is unlimited logs,
just keep a handful of the right size aside for the last load out.

another type of a 'timber transporter'

You would need some very knot free logs or a smooth road.I could see me driving that truck and hit a pothole and 1 of those logs crack when that dozer bounces.

My dad lost a D6 off a trailer once. The floor had just been painted and was slick. The trailer sank on a soft road shoulder and tilted.The chains snapped like spaghetti and the dozer slid off and went rolling down a cliff. Took another D6 and about 6 hours to get that thing out. bent the muffler on it to! and that was all that got bent! it went back to work the next work day.

I take it you haven't heard about Australian hardwood?
