    Default Rotary dump truck

    I saw one of these working on the RR track near here. Sure looks strange when dumping. I've never seen one before, except tracked ones, like Morooka.

    They also had a tracked excavator with RR wheels. You sure do a double take when you see it going by quietly at about 20 mph.

    The closest thing I have seen is a Bannerman top dresser that does that.

    How do they not turn over? Do they hook onto the tracks?
