History and use
Tip drays were used to move loads such as rock from mines, manure on farms, an crushed stone for road construction. The dray was constructed of hardwood throughout. Tip dray were usually smaller than the other drays, as the loads were heavy and usually pulled by only one horse. The dray, also called a tip cart, would hold around one tonne of gravel. The tipping lever and mechanism is in the front of the vehicle between the shafts. (Bolton Collection)
