Johnny on the Spot – The International Payhauler

Construction of the Glenn Canon Dam took place from 1955 to 1966 and according to this film was built entirely with International Harvest trucks and construction equipment. A wise call. In the video below you’ll pretty much every vehicle offered by IH at work. The video has a lengthy introduction but around the eight minute mark it picks up with footage of Payhaulers being lowered to the canyon floor by a giant cable system that spanned the Glenn Canyon during construction. A particularly dramatic scene takes place around the thirteen minute mark as crews scramble to plug the Colorado river and force its historic path into the diversion tubes. Enjoy!
