    M123

    Agreed. Let’s not forget the real star of the show, the poor little 50 ton lowboy that moved the 110 ton load.

    M123

    A few years ago, I used my M123 to move a steam powered locomotive wreck crane. The crane itself weighed just shy of 220,000 lbs. A lesser truck would not have been able to complete the job.

    Set of ramps, San Antonio,Tx to Ohio

    I’ve got to pick up a trailer from him some time this fall. I could get the ramps to VA, or possibly even closer to you if you’re not in a big rush.

    Wanted: Large Tires Chamberlain, SD to Lexington, VA or anywhere further east

    I already purchased these tires from an online equipment auction site. I only bought them because they were insanely cheap. I am just looking for the most economical route to get them home. Thank you for the response. Any and all suggestions are appreciated. Also, Fastenal says they are too...

    Wanted: Large Tires Chamberlain, SD to Lexington, VA or anywhere further east

    I am looking to have 4 large tires, size 18.00 - 24 moved from Chamberlain, SD towards Lexington, VA or anywhere further east. The tires are roughly the size of what is on the rear of most backhoes and smaller size (75ish HP) farm tractors, to give you a general idea. I am going to guess and say...

    1940 Federal 606 C2 Wrecker

    Jeff, or anyone else, would you happen to know when they phased out the early curved boom design for the straight one?

    1940 Federal 606 C2 Wrecker

    On a side note, would any of you gentlemen happen to know if the internal components of the rear axles on a Federal 606 will interchange with those on a 604? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    1940 Federal 606 C2 Wrecker

    The yellow truck pictured is a Sterling HCS 330. Although similar in appearance to the C2 wrecking gear used on the smaller Sterlings and Federal 606 trucks, the boom on the 330 is nearly twice the size and considerably heavier.

    im thinking about selling and starting over what do you think?

    I know a 4bt would fit nicely, make a fairly easy swap, and give great fuel milage. Why not a 6bt though? I plan on putting one in a WWII 1/2 ton in a year or two. It would be alot of work, but it would be one mean and unique truck when its done.

    looking for 11.00-20 ndt,s

    Anyone know where to get good 14.00 X 24 NDT tires and/or combat rims for a good price?

    NDT= No Darn Traction

    For the guy with the stuck duece in the first post. Why not just back down the hill and try it again? It doesn't look to me like you were totally stuck, just unable to go forward.

    WWII Studebaker US-6 on GB

    I saw a US-6 in a junk yard near here the other day. It was really rough, but its the first one I have ever seen in person. I can't remember if it had the original bed on it or not. If anyone is interested let me know and I will see if I can find out more about it.
