Moreland Trucks were pacesetters technically (6 wheeler lightweight contruction and diesel power). The first Morelands made were 1 1/2, 3, 3 1/2 and 5 Ton sizes. By 1924 the largest models a 6 Tonner chain drive, and driver-over-engines. Stock engines were used, together with brown – Lipe transmissions. In 1925 launched the big Tx6 which was powered by a continental 14hp engine and was rated at 10 Tons and sold for $7,000 odd. A6 Ton version was introduced the same year. The 6 wheeler led to greatly increase orders for Moreland, not only in the U.S. but export markets too.
