Around 1960, Caterpillar entered into an agreement with the Athey Products Corporation to manufacture and supply bottom dumps, rear dumps and side dumpers for their new 600-series machines. This was a very successful partnership and one example of this collaboration is shown here, a model 660 tractor unit with an Athey PW660 bottom dumper.

Caterpillar’s first foray into the world of bottom dumpers was with the model DW10 and W10 wagon. A 1953-vintage machine is shown here working with several others, on a levee reconstruction job, a task for which the DW10/W10 combination was ideally suited.

LeTourneau (later LeTourneau-Westinghouse), offered a range of bottom dumps to suit all of their Tournapull models except the Model D. These could be exchanged for other attachments such as a scraper, crane or rear dump by the simple expedient of undoing four bolts on the hitch and disconnecting the electric plug. This is an early 1952-vintage Model C Tournahopper, powered by a GM 6-71 diesel. Vintage Models, Hitched, Crane, Plugs, Diesel, Bottom, History, Electric

A Heil model 2C700 bottom dumper photographed at an equipment show in the USA in 1950. When International-Harvester bought Heil in 1953, they inherited the 2C700 bottom dumper which they re-designated the model 2W-75. Sales of these machines were low. They were nose-heavy and not well liked and only lasted a couple of years in the I-H catalogue before being dropped.

This mighty looking beast is Euclid’s largest production bottom dump called the B-100. Carrying a 100-ton payload, the B-100 had a GM 16V-71T under the hood and could move along at over 40 mph. Several examples of these machines were sent to Pakistan to help build the Mangala dam. Move Along, Euclid, Construction Vehicles, The Hood, Dam, Carry On, Pakistan

International-Harvester had much more success with this bottom dumper, the model 495 PayWagon. Based on their existing 495 PayScraper, International designed and built a whole new back end for the machine which held 40 cubic yards, a worthwhile payload in anyone’s terms. The 495 PayWagon had good sales in the USA and saw use on a lot of dam sites. International Harvester Truck, Construction Equipment, Semi Trucks, Heavy Equipment, Yards

Back in them good old days, this was a bottom dumper! Usually pulled by a team of horses or oxen, the body held approximately 2 cubic yards. Loading was by hand, quite back breaking work, and in the earlier part of the 1900s, by small steam shovel. This is a preserved example Horse Drawn Wagon, Wagon Cart, Old Wagons, Stagecoach, Carriages, Good Old, Buggy, Cannon
