This horse-drawn Road Grader, purchased by John Jennings several years ago, was used at one of the landfills in central Florida to grade the road leading into the landfill. It had been sitting there many years until they finally sold it to Jennings.
Mack Dunn Coal Truck
The Mack Dunn Coal Truck was ordered in 1927 by Dunn Coal and Oil of Federal Street in Chicago. It's said that the truck, which is unrestored, is the only original survivor. The truck was used to deliver coal during the winter months, bringing ash and rubbish back to the landfill after the coal was delivered. During the summertime, the truck was used to deliver cold mix asphalt for paving work. The truck was purchased by Waste Pro Chairman and CEO John Jennings in 2013, and it's the most expensive museum truck investment to date.
