Goodyear Co. Trying
New Type of Truck
To demonstrate the practicability
and efficiency of a new type of motor
truck, a big six-wheel Goodyear
truck of special design, and built ac
cording to the specifications of The
Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company,
has Just reached Los Angeles from
Akron, Ohio, with a load of Wing
foot Heels for the Los Angeles fac
tory of the Goodyear Tire & Rub
ber Company of California. The
truck is equipped with eight inch
Goodyear Pneumatic truck tires and
has a drive from all four rear
The total time consumed in mik
ing the cross-country Journey was
17 days, 8 hours, 55 minutes, while
the actual running time was 7 days,
11 hours and 15 minutes, or an av
erage of 16.6 miles per hour for the
2989 mile Journey. The total load
of the truck and cargo was 18,400
P. W. Litchfield, vice president of
the Goodyear, factories, in speaking
of the development of this type of
truck, said during his recent visit
to the Los Angeles factory, "In the
early days of development of pneu
matic truck tires it was considered
necessary to build tires of gigantic
proportions for use on the larger
trucks in order that they might suc
cessfully carry the loads.
"The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.
has been constantly experimenting
in order to Improve truck transpor
tation and this new six-wheel truck
is the result.
"Working along practically the
same lines on which present-day
giant locomotives are being built,
with the drives emanating from sev
eral small drive wheels instead of
a few large wheels, we have de
signed this truck with six wheels,
all of which are equipped eight inch
Goodyear pneumatic truck tires. The
drive comes from all - four rear
"There is every reason to believe
from the records which this truck
66.70 has established over all sorts of
i road and traveling conditions that
80.00 the six-whe'el motor truck has solv
107.95 ed the problem of present day truck
Support of Prisoners
Kalaheo P. I. F.
"Multiple wheel trucks have been
in the service of the company be
tween Akron and Boston for the
past two years, but the arrival of
this six. wheel truck in Los Angeles
will mark for the first time that
such a five ton vehicle has ever
made the trip across the continent.
"The purpose of the trip is two
fold to determine whether such a
type of truck can profitably handle
a maximum pay load, and to see
if it will meet all the legal require
ments of the various states which
it passes in respect to load limits
and the amount of tire ' surface on
the road. We realize 'the preserva
tion of the roads of this country
is a problem of paramount import
ance, and we are doing everything
possible to devise tire equipment
that will meet this problem effect
ively." A big factor in the remarkable
performance of the truck in its
cross continent journey was the ex
pert driving of Howard Sholder and
Herbert Temple, veteran Goodyear
drivers, who took turns at the
wheel. M. D. Scott in charge of
Goodyear transportation at Akron
was In charge of the truck during
the journey and Tim Williams was
mechanician. All the men slept on
the truck while not on duty.
The route followed here in the
west was through Las Vegas, Santa
Fe, Albuquerque, Wlnslow, Flag
staff, Kiiigmun, Needles, Barstow,
and San Bernardino. In all these cit
ies the truck was the center of a
1,685.26 great deal of interest.
