Vintage dumpster


In this article I want to talk about modest workaholic city, whose work is invisible, but necessary – trucks-garbage trucks. Sounds of course not as proudly as the main haulers or rally car, but…without them the city would be drowned in the mountains of garbage. Surprisingly, this form of public transport, too short fans, collecting the material, photo and history of garbage trucks. So I decided to write about them a few lines and put on public display the most interesting specimens.
I begin with a short history. The problem of garbage in the cities occurred simultaneously with the emergence of cities, and as more of the city – the more serious was the problem. And as soon as the first truck, they immediately began to adapt this simple but necessary thing is garbage. And then people are faced with the problem that a simple flatbed trucks or dump trucks for this are not very good – dust from open bodies tends to fall, the clouds of flies, parasites and odor makes this task even more difficult. Therefore, there is a need to build cars specifically for these needs. Serial trucks were equipped with a special closed body, hydraulic lifts and presses for compacting the waste in the body. During its history, the trucks-garbage trucks changed its appearance, improved, changed, but the function has not changed. Now, let’s turn to the cars.(click on image to enlarge) this is Probably one of the earliest, and it’s not a hot rod or custom car.
