Caption-"Load of wool on truck outside Flannery & Nash - Parkes, NSW"

NOTE assuming the bottom layer of bales is a total of 6, and the second lay also 6, with the top layer 4, that is 16 bales (plus some other at the top front). 16 bales would be a minimum of 240 pounds each = 3840 pounds, and in Aussie (British) measurements that is over 1 3/4 tons, but in US measurement almost 2 tons.

More nice photos! Thanks again Dane H.
No heavy size front wheels this time. Have you figured anything about where or when they were most used? There are a few non pneumatic solid cushion tyres on these trucks, however.
The fourth picture is captioned "Alf and Fred Midgley's 1922 T Ford truck at Jannali, 1942". I jokingly wondered to myself if the truck is any relation to Adrian W's "Albert". I know, the "Alf" was not the truck. I do wonder how Adrian is doing these days. He doesn't post often like he used to.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
