One of the three chip carriers to be used in transporting the chips from the New Zealand Pine Forests Ltd's mill at Richmond to Port Nelson. The carriers can take 24 tons of chips per trip and each bin can be discharged, as shown here, by tipping.


The trucks below are for the haulage of logs from forest to the mill. Nine such trucks will be used for this purpose. The chassis and cab units of both types of vehicle were assembled in Nelson before being sent to Rotorua for completion.
