Hauling clay from the pit to the machine room must be
accomplished at the very minimum of expense because no matter how it is
done the clay itself is no better at the machine than in the pit. The
only consideration is to keep the haulage cost down, and that's just
what the Dewey Locomotive does.
The Dewey 5-ton Industrial Locomotive is so light in weight
that it is, in many plants, run on the lightest rail made -- and in some
cases, on wooden rail. Track and track foundations are matters of very
light expense, because any track that will carry a two-cubic-yard clay
car is substantial enough for this locomotive.
The Dewey is chain driven (see illustration) and it develops
full tractive power under any condition and takes with ease grades that
would stop a direct-connected type of locomotive. The cylinders are high
above the rail and away from dust and mud -- they are in plain view and
The Dewey is also slow speed and cannot be run at excessive or
dangerous speed by a reckless or incompetent operator
A glance at the illustration showing the driving mechanism
will convince you that the Dewey is easy to operate and easy to keep in
good condition. Any man on the plant can operate the Dewey -- it doesn't
require a licensed engineer.
The Dewey is truly a clay plant locomotive. Write to Dewey
Bros., Goldsboro, N. C., and let them tell you about it.
