The round sign on the side of the vehicle reads "Autopelle". "-pelle", in this case, stands for "an ecxcavator", so "autopelle" can be interpreted as "an excavator based on a truck". Taking into consideration the type of a bucket, this machinery can be identified as a "clamshell mechanical grab bucket crane".
The truck [ Front part is a ww1 US Liberty B chassis truck.]
Separate names with a comma.
