D 11 Cat. They'd gang them to pull 6 ft long steel shanks prior to planting permanent crops through farmland in the San Joaquin Valley to turn up the hard pan. It'd come up in 1-2, occasionally 3 ft thick pieces large enough to park a few cars on top. Had they not done that, the, then, flood irrigation techniques may have pooled water, prevented drainage.
Trees and vines don't like wet toes.
This appears to be a more modestly sized haul truck by today's standards It is a Belaz 75131. 130 to 136 metric ton capacity a small ish 50 liter 1600HP V16 Cummins, empty weight 107,000 kg
almost square height to width 5.9m tall 6.4m wide 11.5m long.
The easiest way I know of to right a turtled dump truck like these without adding further damage, is to drag them out to an open area then excavate a pit to the rear just wider than the truck with very a steep slope for the truck to slide into and ramped out the other end, make the pit about 2/3rds in depth in relation to the total length of the truck then push it in with a winch cable attached to the front bumper from 1 dozer and 1 over the length of the truck attached to the top of the front of the bed from another dozer going the opposite direction once the truck is in the pit begin pulling in on 1 cable while paying out with the other to keep the bed and the chassis mated once the steering tires are on the ground re rig and pull it out of the pit . Chances are once the truck is checked out fluids are topped off if need be it can be back on the haul road in 2 to 4 hours.
I've seen smaller trucks back on the road in under an hour. These trucks are tough but at the same time delicate. If you try to right them from the side you risk snapping off 1 or more axles plus destroying the fuel or hydraulic tank
Never try to tell me it can't be done
