A great video of new technology military vehicle for the US Military.
The United States Armed Forces are the federal armed forces of the United States. They consist of the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard. The President of the United States is the military’s overall head, and helps form military policy with the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), a federal executive department, acting as the principal organ by which military policy is carried out.
From the time of its inception, the military played a decisive role in the history of the United States. A sense of national unity and identity was forged as a result of victory in the First Barbary War and the Second Barbary War. Even so, the Founders were suspicious of a permanent military force. It played an important role in the American Civil War, where leading generals on both sides were picked from members of the United States military. Not until the outbreak of World War II did a large standing army become officially established. The National Security Act of 1947, adopted following World War II and during the Cold War’s onset, created the modern U.S. military framework; the Act merged previously Cabinet-level Department of War and the Department of the Navy into the National Military Establishment (renamed the Department of Defense in 1949), headed by the Secretary of Defense; and created the Department of the Air Force and National Security Council.
The U.S. military is one of the largest militaries in terms of number of personnel. It draws its personnel from a large pool of paid volunteers; although conscription has been used in the past in various times of both war and peace, it has not been used since 1972. As of 2016, the United States spends about $580.3 billion annually to fund its military forces and Overseas Contingency Operations. Put together, the United States constitutes roughly 40 percent of the world’s military expenditures. For the period 2010–14, the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) found that the United States was the world’s largest exporter of major arms, accounting for 31 per cent of global shares. The United States was also the world’s eighth largest importer of major weapons for the same period. The U.S. military has significant capabilities in both defense and power projection due to its large budget, resulting in advanced and powerful equipment, and its widespread deployment of force around the world, including about 800 military bases in foreign locations.
Main article: Military history of the United States
The history of the U.S. military dates to 1775, even before the Declaration of Independence marked the establishment of the United States. The Continental Army, Continental Navy, and Continental Marines were created in close succession by the Second Continental Congress in order to defend the new nation against the British Empire in the American Revolutionary War.
These forces demobilized in 1784 after the Treaty of Paris ended the War for Independence. The Congress of the Confederation created the United States Army on 3 June 1784, and the United States Congress created the United States Navy on 27 March 1794, and the United States Marine Corps on 11 July 1798. All three services trace their origins to the founding of the Continental Army (on 14 June 1775), the Continental Navy (on 13 October 1775) and the Continental Marines (on 10 November 1775), respectively. The 1787 adoption of the Constitution gave the Congress the power to “raise and support armies”, “provide and maintain a navy”, and to “make rules for the government and regulation of the land and naval forces”, as well as the power to declare war. The United States President is the U.S. military’s commander-in-chief.
Rising tensions at various times with Britain and France and the ensuing Quasi-War and War of 1812 quickened the development of the U.S. Navy (established 13 October 1775) and the United States Marine Corps (established 10 November 1775). The U.S. Coast Guard dates its origin to the founding of the Revenue Cutter Service on 4 August 1790; that service merged with the United States Life-Saving Service in 1915 to establish the Coast Guard. The United States Air Force was established as an independent service on 18 September 1947; it traces its origin to the formation of the Aeronautical Division, U.S. Signal Corps in 1907 and was part of the Army before becoming an independent service.
The reserve branches formed a military strategic reserve during the Cold War, to be called into service in case of war. Time magazine’s Mark Thompson has suggested that with the War on Terror, the reserves deployed as a single force with the active branches and America no longer has a strategic reserve.
The Allis-Chalmers wheel loader: an overview by Richard Campbell
The wheel loader has found a use in all phases of construction as well as quarry and aggregate production, material recycling, reclamation, rubbish transfer and heavy mining.
Early machines were based largely on agricultural two-wheel drive tractors and operated back-to-front with the lifting arms, or mast, mounted on the tractor’s rear with the machine actually operating in reverse!
The first really commercially-successful purpose-built machines were designed by the Frank G Hough Company, which ultimately became a very important arm of the International Harvester Corp, Payline division.
These machines really started making an impact during the late 1940s.
Before too long almost every equipment manufacturer had its own variant of a wheel loader for sale.
Wheel loaders from Lorain, Case, Pettibone, Nelson, Thew, Mixermobile, Yale and Michigan filled the marketplace along with Hough.
By the end of the decade, Euclid and Caterpillar joined the market.
Among this plethora of wheel loaders was Tractomotive, a wholly owned division of Allis-Chalmers.
Allis-Chalmers had had an association with Tractomotive for a considerable period of time before A-C acquired them outright in 1959.
Tractomotive built the pipelaying side booms, rippers and loader attachments for Allis’ track type tractors and also utilised Allis-Chalmers wheel tractors as a base for its own wheel loaders. It was a very convenient marriage.
As was the case with most of their competitors, Tractomotive used rigid frame two-wheel drive tractors as the base unit for its wheel loaders.
Tractomotive called its wheel loaders “Tracto-Loaders” and they were sold and serviced through the Allis-Chalmers dealer network.
Its model TL-10, a one cubic yard loader, sold particularly well and was in continuous production from 1951 through 1964.
It was a ground-breaking machine for Tractomotive as it was designed and built as a wheel loader, not an adaptation of an existing tractor.
Available with either a gasoline or diesel engine, the loader was the first Tractomotive machine to feature a torque converter drive.
Their next offering, the model TL-12, was a runaway success worldwide and sold in the thousands.
As the first Tractomotive machine to feature all wheel drive and a torque converter drive power shuttle transmission, the TL-12 competed head on with Case and Hough for the lion’s share of the wheel loader market.
Weighing in at around six tons, and carrying a 1.25 cubic yard bucket, the TL-12 was produced from 1954 until 1965 when it was replaced by the articulated steer model 545.
It was available with either a 63 horsepower, 4-cylinder gasoline engine, or a 77 horsepower, 6-cylinder diesel, both manufactured by Allis-Chalmers.
Following on the success of the TL-12 came the TL-14 (3 cubic yards), TL-16 (4 cubic yards), TL-20 (5 cubic yards), TL-30 (6 cubic yards) and the giant TL-40 that was rated at a massive (for the time) 7 cubic yards bucket capacity.
The TL-40 also spawned Allis-Chalmers’ attempt at a wheel dozer named the D-40 that was produced in limited quantities.
These were the last rigid frame, rear wheel steer loaders made by Tractomotive before Allis-Chalmers completely absorbed the company and introduced its own indigenously designed articulated steer machines, the 345, 545, 645, 745 and 945.
However, the Tractomotive name continued in the new A-C series of wheel loaders that were referred to as TL545, TL645 etc., a direct recognition of the new machines’ distinguished heritage.
