The Scammell Mechanical Horse was light weight mechanical tractor designed to replace horses on local delivery services. It was designed by Oliver Danson North in 19 ? The railway companies & the post office in the UK and the military services used a large numbers for local delivery services with demountable trailers that used the inovative Scammell coupling that allowed trailer to be swapped easily. This allowed loading/unloading of one while another was been delivered / collected from the custom.
This design was replaced by the more modern styled Scammell Scarab in 19 ?
