The Haulamatics pictured would appear to be 615s - on a 615 the radiator grille is almost in line with the wings either side, the bowl canopy extends over the cab and the bowl side formers are vertical On a 620 the radiator grille sits forward of the side wings, the bowl canopy only reaches the back of the cab and the bowl side formers slope at an angle. Certainly not 625s which were 6x4 artics. Haulamatic also produced the A420(4x4), A626(6x6) and A630(6x6)artics. The A630 was a "one-off" owned and operated from new by a Leighton Buzzard sand quarry until Hunsbury Machinery found a new owner for it at Blue Circle near Ipswich. Don't know what they did to deserve that but salesman Jimmy Reeve certainly had a hand in it...

Re Haulamatic model - another clue might be that on the machine with its bowl raised it actually says "Haulamatic" along the side of the canopy and "615" at the front of the body (tee-hee)!
