    That's true-I sold 22 split aluminum wheels to guys that just had to have them----------and I laughed all the way to the bank. And I have 8 more-so I can laugh some more.

    Around here they were used thrown open side down to help track type machines to crawl up on the tail of a lowboy for loading over the tires. Had no idea that they were worth something.

    I have a friend that would buy all 8, he ships from west coast frequently, I will contact him and PM you.

    Personally I swapped my truck from budds to hub pilot.

    No thanks, I take them to the local truck show and sell them to the local crowed.

    This is the nonsense we have by me right now:

    https://springfield.craigslist.org/hvo/d/bolivar-8100-international/7062106022.html

    [​IMG]

    I own a international 8100 with a M11, we like it because its really short wheelbase for getting around on jobsites. But if there's a buyer this guys truck at $18,000, I've got one for sale too. I'd even give a pretty good discount off the 18,000. I'm not that impressed with mine.

    Every old truck that is pre ELD and pre 2001 or so (no emissions) is now a $20,000 truck in my area

    Only one company I am aware of in MO uses Mexican chrome rattle cans on wheels, Hogan Leasing. Cannot see $18K for that.

    That Bull Nose-has been for sale on Redding CL for four years on and off.
    That B73 Mack wrecker with the W45 unit well here's another view of it, I looked at that over two years ago. Truthfully the cab and sheet metal is pretty much rusted out along the seams
    and the floor boards are pretty much toast. And the engine is locked up. If it's on the west coast I know about it.

    Yup, an L series nose there. Maybe an L-170, Got to drive one in wheat harvest one year (I was 15) the brakes were weird, push the pedal to the floor with a terrible screech from the pedal rubbing the floorboard and let up on the pedal as the Hydro-vac applied the brakes or your nose would be on the horn button.

    If we talk about old trucks here, can we talk about old trailers too? This one appeared on my local craigslist, and I was amused by the ad and description. I got a good chuckle out of the 30 ton / 22 ton rating confusion....

    following is quoted from the ad in case it disappears:

    I have for sale a 18ft long 22 Ton tilt trailer with a new full cut 2" oak floor in it. All the tires are good on it.
    Lights all work but could use rewiring. Has like new brakes but one partially sticks sometimes.
    The person I bought it from said it was a 30 Ton however the title doesn't say the ton rating an I don't feel as though it is a 30 ton so I'm selling it as a 22 Ton as I have hauled a Caterpillar 963 on it so I know it will carry that much weight. (Approx 44,000lbs)
    Trades considered but Cash is King.
    LOWBALLERS and TIREKICKERS don't bother nor waste my time as I promise I will hurt your feelins, however I am open to reasonable offers.
    Thanks for looking
    $4000OBO

    Obviously NOT an equipment Trailer, looks oddly similar to what I see Mo-Con and other Precast Companies using behind Straight Trucks for Heavy singular component moves. Needs tire(s) fifteen inch appearance lowboy style axles, would not consider it more than a 20T, MIGHTY Short to be dragging a 963 on as well.

    I kinda thought as short as it is, that the weight would be pretty centered on the trailer, so 30 ton sounded hopelessly optimistic, and I'd think 22 ton on those 15" would be pushing the tires pretty hard.

    It would be interesting to look at, Hyster built a trailer just like that with a 22 ton rating. Plus by the looks of it I would be willing to bet that suspension is Hyster. Plus Hyster built
    a ground bearing 35 ton lowboy with a 22' well using the same suspension and tire size. In the photo below is a possum belly I built in 2002 to hold the 15 ton dry box, on the other
    side of it is a Hyster 35 to two axle with removeable neck, sorry the photo doesn't show more of it.
