Human-Powered Trucks

Kinda cool.

Maybe not too practical, but more so than the Mercedes concept project (at least these perform actual work, and are for sale). Opens up some whimsical “what-if” scenarios about what a human powered heavy dump truck, or eighteen-wheeler variant might look like … a bulldozer? Shades of 20-Mule Team Borax days.

I love the rickshaw version. That could be popular in the US soon. I’d like to see a Zamboni too.

It is a good idea. I can imagine some recreational uses for one of these.

I can’t help but think that they need a much larger gear reduction ratio, at least for our hills.

Wow! Bringing back a post from '09!
