Hi all,

From C. America for UK English

New to me or a spelling mistake, any help greatly appreciated:

"Las cajas deben embalarse en cajones de madera paletizados para su manejo mediante maquinas y ***lagartos para el transporte***, lo cajones no deben superar los 300 kg"

TIA

"Lagarto" = "dumper articulado" in Spanish, which is an articulated truck.

Good luck!

Notes to answerer
Asker: Hi and thanks for your help. Is it used specifically for dumpers? Truck = lorry in the UK ;@)


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  neilmac: People in UK use "truck" too... I'd tend to say "dumper truck" rather than dumper lorry myself.
