I can't say I know how old this thing is, but it is old. My hubby used to run one of these on a daily basis. Now there doesn't seem to be much need for one on the construction sites. Since the economy took a dump the construction industry has slowed down tremendously. Luckily he is a go getter and seems to keep himself busy so that there is a steady stream of income.
What you see is the old style steering device. Can you imagine?
The wheels. I can just imagine how rough it would be to run this machine on a bumpy construction site. Talk about back pain.
