    I agree that that the C12 in the MK-36 Wrecker is much more powerful but I've used the C7 power in a M1089A1P2 quite a few times and it does better than you might think. I've lift towed quite a few MTV's and can still run on the governor at 62 MPH. with the transfer to forward most rear axle disconnected. I also have a M984A4 and it tops out at the same speed but gets there a little quicker since it has a C15. Please note that these are not my personal trucks, I'm still in the National Guard and you fine taxpayers purchased these that I have the opportunity to operate. Thanks Kindly.

    These appear to be a single speed transfer.....thoughts on the low end grunt vs a 5 ton in low?

    They are 1.36 under drive Oshkosh 30000 cases. They are even used in the M1070A1 HET. They do well with the low 1st gear and reverse and the double over drive allison. They can handle tons of power

    The 7ton has a 6.00 final drive. First gear is 7.63:1.

    Also a MTVR has the C12 CAT. 1550ft lbs of torque is double what a NHC250/8.3 can put out stock. So their low end grunt is way more than a 5 ton ever thought about being. Especually with a lower first gear in the MTVR.

    I almost purchased a 7 ton. I was bidding close to 12,000 and the truck went for $12,000 so I gave up a little bit too early. They have dropped in price quite a bit.

    Yes, in California. Close to Barstow. I live in salt lake City so I figure I can just drive it home if I can win one.
