I drove a Power Wagon on my summer job working for a fence company, building fence along new interstates. I recall it being a '55 model, but don’t remember for sure. Had a hinged windshield. Could barely make 50 mph on the highway while driving to the job site. It was a blast to drive!
One day, while setting fence posts along a new section of road, we were faced with getting the concrete from the mixer truck to the post holes, but the ditch along the road made it impossible to get the mixer truck near them. The choice was to carry the concrete in buckets down the hill, across the ditch, and up the other side to the fence line. The boss believed he could make it across the ditch and up the hill in the Power Wagon, so he filled the bed with concrete and promptly got the PW stuck fast in the ditch. After about 15 minutes, with concrete curing in the bed of the PW, by a stroke of luck a Caterpillar road grader happened by and managed to pull the PW out. We spent the rest of the afternoon bucketing concrete up the hill.
