Moving Euclid BV Belt Loader with Euclid Bottom Dump Wagon alongside. BV Loader stands for "Blade-veyor" and it was not a self propelled machine it was pulled by a bulldozer, as seen in this image. Its 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 the 'Bottom Dump' wagon running alongside of it. The book EUCLID: Earth-moving Equipment 1924-1968 has an entire section on the BV Loaders.
