That probably explains why the bulldozer shovel was stuck to the wall. Thought it looked a bit odd on it's own.

Yes, the road builder made its first appearance in End of the Road, filmed some time around spring 1965. It was then painted yellow for scenes at the beginning of Atlantic Inferno, filmed about a year later, before finally meeting its end soon after that, having been incorporated into the Crablogger.

im not too sure if it was made into the back of the crablogger, as the tiger joes where sliced down the middle, doesnt look like the crablogger was much wider than a tiger joe.

and I think, havent checked, that the roadbuilder had ribbed wheels and the crablogger had smooth tiger joe wheels,

The Crablogger looks to me as if its at least 2 foot wide, while the Tiger Joe is possible nearer 15/16 inches ? Pretty sure the studio wouldn't have bothered building a new rear half for the Crablogger when they had the roadbuilder to cannibalize - particularly as it has exactly the same base. More accurate dimensions anyone ?
