    Camptramp-would you have a photo of a B81 Mack with a monster of a guy {Uncle High Pants} standing
    next to it? Taken in 1958.

    That isn't any ordinary low boy and truck, and the shovel is loaded from the side. The gents in the photo look to have done a lot of this kind of work. It also strikes me of the kind of things that were done in those days.

    It might been something that was done before my time in the woods , but it is the first time I have seen it done . Mind you the camp I started at had a Washington TL6 on a rubber tire carrier that was very mobile .

    Les Way Collection BCFP Harris Cr. april1961PreloadT203.jpg april1961PreloadT2031.jpg The paint looks fairly fresh on the #203 logging truck . I wonder if this is a picture of the #203 when it was converted from a "conventional logging truck" to a " preloader logging truck"

    I think this is the first photo I have ever seen of a Cat log truck.

    Back in the early 1980s a large logging contractor in my area shut down and sold off their fleet of Pacific P16s
    and Hayes HDX and Kenworth 850 logging trucks. Another logging contarctor bought ten of them at auction for
    very little money. The shop I worked at took a few of those trucks and replaces the V12 Detroit's
    with Cummins KT19 engines and replaced the Allison transmissions with 12 speed Mack transmissions,
    rebuilt the Clark BD-91000 diffs and whatever else they needed. That engine transmission combination worked out
    well for the mountains around here.

    At the same auction another logger picked up a five year old Kenworth 848 log truck with a V12 Detroit and a 15 speed fuller and 4640 diffs with trailer ready to go to work for $2500.
