Description: Compressed air trammer. There were two styles of trammer, a corporate style, with a tank that could hold 750-1000 psi, and a mining trammer (100 psi
tank). Corporate trammers tended to be used above ground or on an incline to haul ore out from the mine. Mining trammers were used below ground to move ore carts
