Equipment Information

Milwaukee Electric F208 is a side dump trailer built for hauling gravel and other aggregate. It was designed to be hauled behind a motorized dump car and was used on the Wisconsin interurban system and the Milwaukee streetcar network in road and railway construction projects. Later in its life a cab and motors were added to make it into a self-propelled car, or dump motor.

COMPARE ME WITH: Milwaukee Electric D13, a motorized side dump car (or “dump motor”) that likely hauled F208 during many a construction project.
