Hello all,
Does anyone know the make of the woodturning tanker that George has posted? I do not know if it is just me, or does anybody else have issues with a woodturning boiler next to a large tank of fuel? I certainly would not want to be the driver. I guess anything could, and did, get used in those hard days, or maybe it was a water bowser or sludge gulper?.
Cheers,
Kerry.

Hi Kerry
George's truck has a very substantial hood ornament which I'm pretty sure is a Daimler-Benz tristar. Truck looks to be a late 1920'- early 1930's L 5 or very similiar model. Interesting subject - I think its a honey wagon.

Hi Kerry,
I'll second Rich. The wheels are typical Mercedes from late 20s/early 30s, so most probably this is some of their N models range.
In this configuration it couldn't be a fuel tanker, of course. Looks more like gully sucker.
BTW, I like that yours "woodturning" :lol: The woodturning vehicle looks like this:
