Dempster Brothers, Inc. of Knoxville, Tennessee, is an industrial firm that makes waste handling vehicles including the Dempster Dumpmaster and Dempster Dinosaur.[1]

Dempster DumpmasterEdit

The Dempster Dumpmaster, introduced in the 1950s, was the first commercially successful front loading garbage truck in the United States . The product uses the Dempster-Dumpster system of mechanically emptying standardized metal containers, which had been patented by the company in 1937. It had arms at the front that picked up a dumpster and lifted it over the cab to tip it into the hopper. A rearward traveling compacting panel compressed the garbage stored in the truck, and was also used to push it out through a door at the back when it was being emptied.
