Romanazzi 3 Way Volvo Dump Truck US Patent 4412699

They Romanazzi 3 way Dump truck was built in Rome Italy. The Patent was filed in 1981. The Italians sure know how to make stuff. The patent drawings are amazing to view. Having a dump bed that can go left and right (and back too!) makes unloading material in the city areas a breeze.

I had a job in Baltimore City which had a small driveway on a narrow row home street. I was able to back up and dump my material in the driveway to the right. NO other truck could do what I could.

Since this patent has run out. Others have copied this design. I was able to find some interesting examples of big rigs and agricultural wagons with the same design.
