At the end of the 1950s demand grew for larger scrapers with capacities in excess of 20 cubic yards. A-C spent serious money to design an all new machine, culminating in the Model TS460. It was a brute, and the largest motor scraper that Allis-Chalmers had ever built up to that time. There was some resemblance to the existing TS260 and TS360 yet TS460 was a completely new machine from the ground up. With all-hydraulic bowl and ejector and cable apron, the TS460 looked the part. .
