Truck Information:
During the 1920’s many states purchased trucks like this FWD to drill holes for electrical poles. The earth boring drill at the rear of this truck can drill a hole up to eight feet deep. This model of FWD was popular because of its simple design; it was easy to operate and easy to repair. The FWD could dig anywhere between 25 – 35 holes per day. This was a significant improvement over digging the holes by hand; 8 10 men would only average eight holes per day. This is a heavy duty work truck, weighing in at 13,400 pounds.
