Hatlebakk having become aware of these difficulties looked at ways of making the job of the road builder easier.So by 1969 he started designing his first dump truck and the foundation of the Moxy company. The first model was a heavy duty dump truck drawn by a Ford 5000 tractor, which had a bogie with the rear wheels driven by hydraulic motors, to give 6 wheel drive. The next version, an articulated dump truck driven by a "tractor unit powered by a Scania diesel engine, was also finished in 1970.Moxy Engineering is a Norwegian manufacturer of articulated dump trucks for off-road use in the earth moving and construction industries.Moxy was founded by the industrialist Birger Hatlebakk, who had previously founded the Glamox factory in Molde.
