The dump truck had just one driver until 1983, a man named Hess. It was used mainly to haul coal from the train station to the central heating plant of the clinic.
The second owner was the common carrier Hans Fehr from Basadingen. He had it until 1985, when senior partner Rudolf Bauberger bought the vintage truck from him. The truck was completely restored and painted in the BAUBERGER colors by the body shop Carrosserie Höhener in St. Gallen in 1999 to mark the company’s 25th anniversary.
