Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

all-steel end-tipping lorry, with a capacity of 4 cubic yds., has just been introduced by Commer Cars, Ltd., Luton. The body and hydraulic gear are products of Bromilow and Edwards, Ltd., and the vehicle represents something of an achievement in view of the fact that it weighs, complete, under 24 tons.

It has a 10-ft. 6-in, wheelbase, and the internal body dimensions are 9 ft, 6 ins. by 6 ft. 6 ins. by 1 ft. 9 ins., whilst the power unit has six cylinders and develops a maximum of 80 b.h.p.

Sturdiness is a feature of the chassis, a necessary attribute in. view of the hard conditions under which tipping lorries 'commonly have to operate, and the rough treatment they freely receive. The frame side members are 8 ins, deep and generously braced; the axles are amply dimensioned; the springs extra long and affording a wide base.

Mounted on an underframe built of high-tensile-steel pressings, the body is a good example of modern electrically welded construction, and the whole combines lightness with strength. The sides of the container are made with B4 a turn-over, whilst, in addition, there are welded-on stiffening ribs. .Substantial hinges hold the tailboard, and quick-release cam-shaped hooks, together with a locking bar, secure it. Tipping is effected by a double telescopic ram at the front, which is fed by a high-speed pump, and the rear hinge bar and its fixings are stated to be well up to their work.
