An Euclid BV Belt Loader with 2 Euclid Bottom Dump wagons in attendance. BV Loader stands for "Blade-Veyor" and it was not a self propelled machine, as seen in this image it was pulled by a bulldozer. It's exactly like a Holland Loader but Euclid started making the BV's back in the 1940's before them I believe. It works like a scraper does but the dirt moves up a conveyor belt and then its loaded into a 'Bottom Dump' tractor running alongside of it. In this image one dump wagon waits in turn as one is being filled to capacity by the BV. The book EUCLID: Earth-moving Equipment 1924-1968 has an entire section on the BV Loaders.
