You just made my day, that is by far one of the neatest ''walk behind'' i have seen, puts me in mind of the Lister three wheel truck.

More pictures!!! That thing is neat as can be. I'm thinking the payload couldn't be too much due to loosing traction. Do you have any history on it you can share?

Thanks all

The truck info states it was made to carry 6cwt sorry for old speak

the sides come off to carry wider loads it also tips up I will post more photos when I take it out again

If you are sitting on it and you lose traction you get off and let it follow on. when on grass or hard road no problem

They were very adaptable as you took out the power unit and used to plough, rake  cultivate,harrow all in  all very versitile

They were also fitted with cylinder mower and scythe blade sawbench  cement mixer
