abodyjoe,
What is that propped up next to the green wagon/trailer? A big marine piston?

It's a piston out of one of the engines at work. We use them to generate electric but I believe they also used them on ships. The engine is a 20 cyl cooper Bessemer. That piston is a small one at 15 1/2" diameter.

Last year, almost to the day I think. When I was student teaching the school said if we can haul away the old bleacher steel we the Skills USA club can have the money from it. We thought what the hell we might as well. So we found someone willing to loan us a gooseneck trailer, triple single wheel 34' and staged it by the steel. On a monday afternoon, we loaded it all up and I was amazed at how little the old workhorse squatted. I figured it wasn't as much as we thought but what the hell let's do it anyways.
Tuesday rolled around and by the end of the day I had brought the school in front of the shop. we aired up all the tires and did a light test. All lights were working and the trailer brakes were staying on. Quick patch to the light plug in and I was good to go.

Took me about 1 hour to travel the 40 miles to town. Keep in mind this was the first time I hauled a gooseneck in a large town (Montana only has one large city, everything else is a town to some degree haha). I was swinging wide and taking up both lanes on some of the narrow sweeping corners. I finally get there and pull on to the scale. Pull back around the block to get unloaded. Was unloaded in about 30 minutes pulled back on the scale then I had to find a place to park. Parking that old girl without a trailer is a challenge at times. With that giant trailer behind I began to wonder how the hell was I going to pull this off. Ended up getting a spot walked in and they said they couldn't believe how much was on there. 12,680 LBS of steel. At the time it amounted to about $720. I just couldn't stop laughing.

But here it is. a 1970 W200 with a gooseneck hitch people would (and do) laugh at today.

Is that a flat bed or a "dump bed"? And if you don't mind me asking.... what would you DO with a BIG FLAT BED truck like that? Do you intend to put it to work? Have fun and good luck with it! :salut

It has a 14ft stake bed dump on it. I use it to haul logs,dirt,gravel or anything else I don't want to mess up my "new" Dodge with.
It handles about 6 tons pretty well but with 6.28 gears you can't be in a big hurry!

That's Cool!! I like to see old trucks still being used (and loved). I met a guy that still uses his 1964 to haul and place gravestones.

Mine is pretty much retired, but every now and then she likes to haul a load around. Here she is moving a grill down to the cabin on the lake.

Nice Chief! You still have the JD? A few posts back on page 5, was one of my Honda Dream in the back of my 68. Funny thing is, I bought the Honda off the same guy I got my Sweptline from!!

You going to ride that Chief in the next "Cannonball"?
