The one at 59.57 has an Allis Chalmers badge I believe , so maybe 1.01.50 is also an Allis Chalmers ?

Yes , no matter how stupid a persons actions are there will be a lawyer who will be able to blame someone else for their misfortunes .
So no one will take any risk at all these days , even though some risk is part of life.

wow

let's face it, in that situation even if the bucket drops the kids, the loader goes backwards so it's impossible that they can be run over by it

In this case I think it is dangerous , the fall could hurt or kill. Maybe they were tied in but it does not appear so.

The whole Daily Mail-fuelled nanny-state 'elf and safety phenomenon in Britain is more about mundane everyday stuff like noticeboards on pavements outside shops etc. rather than heavy industrial equipment.

But I'm sure in Germany they'd think nothing of larking around with bulldozers on construction sites. :whistle:

I still think its an Allis Chalmers the twin headlamps seem characteristic of the TL series.

found some more trucks for you to name

not target vehicle but we could take the very rare dumper version instead (none listed on IMCDB so far) since both are just 1 star stock footage and the loader is not really identifiable
/vehicle.php?id=620622

/vehicle.php?id=643725#Comment1565656
/vehicle.php?id=298322
/vehicle.php?id=95286

and this could be Bombardier one since filmed in Canada

what's to know??? says in Wiki and in the forum thread I linked at bottom it's mentioned as REO M59

Quote The M47 and M59 dump trucks were developed, based on the M44 chassis and M35 cargo truck respectively. An improved dump truck, again based on the M44 and designated the M342 was designed to replace both the M47 and the M59, as well as the M135-based M215.

yes, we have dozens of pages of M44 chassis but none in the dumper version, so we can take that !! :)

the loader I tell you it's nothing special regardless what it is out of those options
