Saw these trucks in North Eastern Chile carrying equipment for the massive mining industry in this part of the world.

Wow. I'd love to see the rest of the gear.
Loading those trays would take some effort.
Far cry from Alfie Noble, pick and a wheelbarrow :)
Here's a "bucket" used in the mining industry in Chile. I'd love to see the whole machine in action. The truck low-loader was parked in the same service station as the trucks I posted above. Chile is a relatively wealthy country. Much of that wealth comes from the mining industry which is carried out on a mind boggling scale.

For reference I'm 1.83 metres tall.

Sure is amazing gear.
Manufacturing them would be also interesting to see.
Thanks for adding to original

Never mind the occupants. I don't get LARPing and never will, but some people seem to eat it up. When they hit the field the crowd storms the fence for a better look.

The first truck is a German-built Ford from WWII. You folks in Europe may see these more often, but they're rare over here.
