    With the cheek plates for the crane all drilled and bolted in place on the FEMTT, it is time to move the winch forward and set on the knuckle boom crane.
    Unfortunately I had to spend half a day under the M123A1c to change out a bad starter solenoid. At least it is the same as a 5 ton, so I had one in stock.....Never a dull moment around here.....

    The winch is set off for now, pending some modifications to the mounting bracket. Also, the hydraulic tank is removed and will have a new location on the passenger side front fender, between the cab and the spare tire.

    Since the FEMTT is a 6x6, I'm able to fabricate the spare tire carrier far enough behind the front fender, as to not have the spare stick up above the nice, low silouette of truck!



    With the 10 ton back in service, it did not take us to long to lift the knuckle boom crane from the back of the Mk17, on to it's new "home" on the frame of the FEMTT.

    Here are some pics of the swap......

    P.s. Not sure what the Wajax weighs but it is HEAVY!!!

    Default Snow!

    Well, I should have not said anything about an "exceptionally mild Winter", because we just got a bunch of snow!!!

    Unfortunately this may delay my FEMTT project a little bit, since we do all the work outside and they have more snow in the forcast for tonight!


    Time to start digging I guess.....

    snow baaaaaaaaaaaaaaad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    And the Dark Man said to him, "I will set you high in my artillery. You are the man I want." Then he saw an army of ten thousand driving across the desert and into the mountains, a rough beast of an army whose time had come at last. And riding in a giant tanker, he saw himself, and knew that the truck was filled with Napalm. Behind him, in a long column, were trucks loaded with bombs, mines, plastic explosive, flame throwers, flares, heat seeking missiles, grenades, machine guns and rocket launchers. The dance of death was about to begin, and already the strings of the fiddles and guitars were smoking and the stench of brimstone and cordite filled the air.

    I have an extra MK48 cab that I was thinking about installing on my M923. I will be watching your progress. Your fabrication skills are top notch.

    Ok, this one **** of an awesome build. While the M916 you used for it looked sweet the way it was, this was definitely worth it to use it.

    I can't wait to see more of this build, but in the mean time, can you tell us more about your 10 ton crane-truck? I am very interested in that build. It looks awesome, and would be handy as all get out.

    Thanks all for the nice compliments! As far as the 10 ton M123A1c goes, I have had that truck since 1988! We used it with a custom made Dolly System to haul 85' long Railroad passenger cars between Eureka Springs, AR and Springdale, AR for the ES&NA Railroad.

    The crane came off a Hanson military rough terrain crane. I put it on the 10 ton in about 1990, after that haul in Arkansas was no longer needed by the Railroad and used it in my wrecker service business for about 9 years after that.
    When I sold the wrecker service, not having a CDL the buyer only bought my 1 ton wrecker and the roll-back.

    I tried to sell the M123 for a while, but no one wanted to pay anything for the truck, so I still own it and use it all the time!

    So I will take some current pics for you guys and see if I can dig up some "early" ones.....I will post them in a seperate thread though...
