Scammell SV2S recovery tractor

The Scammell SV-2S 6x4 is a pre world war two design. It has a single rear differential which drives into walking beams at each end of an "axle" tube. Each walking beam carries two road wheels which are driven by chains. This system has the great virtues of simplicity and excellent wheel articulation.

These trucks were used during world war two as recovery vehicles although their haulage duties were taken over by the likes of Diamond-T tractors.
