I stumbled across another classic Trojan Loader the other day. I’m unsure of the exact model but I’m guessing it might be a 304? This machine is in remarkably good condition for a unit of the late 50’s vintage. It’s been repainted at some point removing all logos and model identification but that just shows that someone cares. Loading power probably came from a Detroit but I’ve read of some loaders using International gas engines. Who can tell? Much like the Michigan 180 wheel dozer from last month this Trojan does not articulate in the middle but instead relies on rear wheel steering. Note the interesting style of lifting arms on this loader with the hydraulic pistons located near the rear of the machine. Click here to see an similar machine but from another angle. What a cool old beast!
