    It's been welded in 4 spots. Even has the old spot mirror L bracket welded on it, probably to hook a strap. It's seen a lot of use, tires are nearly bald.

    Still in use though. The ones they get now are the cheapest junk.

    I dunno, that doesn't look like the freight man's hand truck of yesteryear. Is there a fan mount on it?

    I've posted this before. But it's back for a laugh.
    This may truly be his as he used it so much the wheels fell off.
    I have no idea what this was or would be used for.
    It just showed up one day awhile back on a city trailer.

    Mount it onto the front of a pumpkin. See if it will still carry a beat as you go down the highway.

    This is a poor man's cant hook, Mud used this for rolling Camp Ground Approved Firewood Logs, before he could afford
    a real one.

    J.P.Delaney was the VP of Operations for Roadway Express probably back in the late eighties. He was known for the company videos he would make, usually with him ranting on about the Yellow Dog, which was Yellow Freight. Roadway eventually fired J.P., I believe because of an incident in a bar.

    Wrench, you probably remember these old spot mirror L brackets, the shops loved them, found all kinds of uses for them, even welded one on this hand truck.
