From John :

In 2008, the Polson Museum in Hoquiam, Washington, acquired a 1949 Chevrolet 6400 flatbed dump which serves as our "company car" for any number of hauling needs. All of us who work and volunteer for the Polson have been asking ourselves how in the world did we ever manage before without a flatbed dump truck?

We use this vehicle weekly and often daily for moving artifacts (our museum handles an assortment of logging, sawmilling, and other industrial items), hauling brush and other yard debris from our park, and transporting trees to and lumber from a small sawmill operation that we have a partnership interest in.

The photo shown was taken this past year of our truck in action getting loaded with a couple of fir trees felled on our museum grounds to make room for a new exhibit building under construction in 2009.

Also here is a photo of our truck hauling a load of locally sawn cedar shingles and some vintage chainsaws at Hoquiam's 2008 Loggers Playday Parade.

Thanks for including us!

We wish everyone could have a dump truck in the lives, even if it is for a short time. It's amazing what you can do with it ... and others will ask you to do for them!! (it's good to share!) John has a Stovebolt of his own in the Gallery, a 1935 Chevrolet 1.5-Ton Flatbed. ~ Editor
