  • What kinda truck is this?

    We bought this truck to fix up and cant find any data plate or id. Has anyone seen one and if so know where. I need to find a service and operators manual. I could use any info as I'm at a brick wall and need a ladder to get over it.

      Who did you buy it from? Didn't they supply you with any kind of title documentation?

      The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

        Never seen one before, nor could I find anything like it with Google. My guess would be an ARFF truck, based on the color. Or perhaps an offroad wildland truck.

          I'd go with an International based ARFF but anything beyond that is a [email protected]

            Ummm, call me silly here, but why in the hell would you buy a truck with absolutely no knowledge of what it is or who manufactured it????

            My guess is a combination ARFF/Structural unit. Looks too new to be a Walter chassis. Does not appear to be an Oshkosh. Looks similar to units used in the antarctic or other regions with extremely heavy snows. Check with those manufacturers.

              Ok, so tell us the REAL story. Nobody would buy it and not know what it is. It sits at this lot and looks like it would be kewl,so you are asking about it?

              Anyways, it is an International cab. Look at the door handle.

                Did International ever build anything with articulated steering?

                  I'm thinking ex-military? Maybe not ours?

                    I am not sure. It is clearly an IH door handle, but much of it looks like sort of an experiment. The place where it is sitting does some fancy off road equipment, so perhaps they are the original poster.

                    Nowhere does the OP state it is a fire department, so this may be a project for them, or it may be something they put together.

                      I could go along with it being a foreign job, other than it looks a lot bigger than a lot of foreign equipment usually is. There used to be a website that profiled every type of ARFF truck the USAF ever had, and I don't recall seeing anything articulated like this one.

                      Maybe it is a one-off or prototype. Also, for being an ARFF truck I see no turrets, although they could have been removed at some point.

                        Ok, found this site. http://www.dodfire.com/ I went through the entire site, looked at every picture of every truck and didn't see this truck. However I did find a photo of an articulating truck built on a Cat dirt mover style body.

                            To me, the lack of turrets, what appears to be the lack of a pump engine, (at least a LARGE pump engine) and the overall size, I don't think it is is ARFF.

                            With a smaller engine for a pump I could see a wildland rig. Maybe something from SVI there in CO.

                            But just looking at the front, something cries out to me, SNOW. I know, no tracks, but it just looks like the front end of something you would see going through a snowbank.

                              Cat built quite a few specialized articulated chassis like this for ARFF rigs, entirely for civilian airports (none were used by the Military that I am familiar with.) The NY/NJ Port Authority had several of them at Newark, Laguardia and JFK airports.
