One of R E Hazard’s Michigan 310s gets a heaped load of California sandy loam on the San Luis aqueduct project, 1969. Hazard was a big user of Clark/Michigan equipment and made a lot of money with them. The twin air-cleaners are a noteworthy field modification.

Michigan 210 gets a shunt from an Allis-Chalmers HD-21 on this North Carolina road realignment job. Material, as can be seen, is fairly sticky red clay that has coated the scraper’s rear end quite well. The narrowness of the operator’s compartment is very apparent.

Australian based 110HT without the cab so often found on these machines. This particular example has a non-standard muffler fitted - no doubt in response to the GM 4-71's trademark growl, a fact not appreciated in residential areas!
