It looks like that one earned it's keep. I like the beefy hard rubber tires on the rear.
Thanks
Rich

Neat picture John! You know, when you see an ol' Model T or TT hard at work like in this scene, it's no wonder the engines needed "a ring -job" pretty regularly, as opposed to engines today that can, and do, go a couple hundred thousand miles on the original rings! Dust like the dust seen in this photo, on a regular day-to-day basis could cut through a set of rings pretty quickly I'd think! No air cleaners on those "T's right? Of course, modern air cleaners with good effective paper air filter elements are just one reason that modern engines will run as far and as long, trouble-free, as they do nowadays,.... but better motor oil and lubricants help too, as well as fuel filters, fuel injection for precisely metered fuel, modern metallurgy, computer engineering & design for closer tolerances, etc, etc. It all adds up,....we've come a long way! But that dust!!! Makes me a believer in fitting air cleaners to our "T's,...purist or not!

Is that a homemade seat the guy is sitting on?

They put flags on the radiator even back then! Thanks John. Love the TT's.

A lot of trucks got just enough body to get the job done. They had to have a good dump bed, paid good money for one. Driver needs a place to sit? Something simple and cheap. But it got the job done.

That seat sort of looks like it's just a chair set over the gas tank. I don't see a seat belt..... :-)

Don't dare complain about the seat, there's 8 other guys in the photo who would take his job in a heartbeat to get paid to sit on their butts all day. :-)

I have one of those cement mixers, but mine is somewhat smaller;
