With a little luck, this little gem will be a multi-function material mover. The plan includes a rack body dump, to facilitate a recessed gooseneck hitch in addition to a ball/pintle, and perhaps a detachable tail mount crane.
Ideally, I can use this to move my processor, and later carry 2 cord of firewood per load.
Hope springs eternal…
I can work on the engine under shelter. Nice.
At present, I need to do the brakes and tires. Other than that, it’s a runner.
And what have we here? This is a C750. Rated to 27500lbs GVW, I can’t register this for use on an Operator’s license. The state says you can up-rate the capacity on a truck, but you can’t de-rate.
I plan to make one truck out of two. The 750 has a rack body dump, and heavier axles with a simpler braking system and tubeless tires; four of which are perfectly serviceable.
The 600 has obsolete tube-type 8.25-20s. A new set of six would easily cost more than what I now have in the 750.
It’s a very heavy no-brainer.
The crane is a bonus. The truck can dismantle itself.
I’m running out of room…
