I saw a Model T wrecker at Auburn once,and it had a hand crank. The ratio was probably 10 to 1.

When I saw your "Tipper " , I was reminded of the company ! I built this company's Tank truck back in the very early 1990's as a display for a Hobby shop. I never saw another one of these until now . VERY WELL DONE JOB on something a lot of modelers wouldn't touch being as it's not plastic .....
