Built by Road Machines (Drayton) Ltd., West Drayton, Middlesex, this rather unusual exhibit was used on building sites for the movement of materials, particularly inside pipelines and drains and it consists of a self propelled tipper truck powered by a petrol-hydraulic traction system. Its origin and construction date is not known but it is likely to date from the 1950s.

It was donated by Thurston Building Services in 1983.
