About this title


To many people, a wheel loader is called a PayLoader, thanks to the dominance of the classic rubber-tired, hydraulic front-end loader first developed by the Frank G. Hough company in 1944. When International Harvester acquired Hough and combined it with its struggling construction equipment division in 1974, PayLine was born, with the PayLoader as its signature machine.

This book tells the story of PayLine, which marked the high point of International Harvester's foray into construction equipment. Oscar H. Will III chronicles the company's early efforts, its success with machines ranging from the PayLoader to the PayHauler, and it's expansion right up to its sale to Dresser Industries in 1982.

With attention to each particular model, including history, specifications, market position, and color photographs of these mighty machines at work, this book is a fitting tribute to International Harvester's giants in the earth, and a critical chapter in the story of American industry.

From the Back Cover:

At the beginning of the twentieth century, progress was booming. International Harvester was busy making tractors but dove into the growing construction equipment industry. Around the same time, Frank G. Hough started his own company to create attachments for tractors and eventually became involved with construction equipment. PayLine: International Harvester’s Construction Equipment Division follows the evolution of International Harvester’s construction division and the Frank G. Hough Co. through the years to the merger between the two companies in 1974 and up until Dresser Industries bought the construction division in 1982.

Whether you are an International Harvester or construction equipment enthusiast, this book covers a very unique aspect of IH’s history and chronicles the evolution of an influential aspect of construction equipment. Oscar H. Will III’s authoritative text, alongside archival and modern color photography, brings this chapter of IH and construction equipment to life.
