This photo just came up on a Tassie Logging facebook page.... And no one seems to know what it is

Anyone have any idea?

I would say It's one of the Pacific 60 ton log trucks.

I'm not so sure it is either an Oshkosh .... the cab doors just don't seem right ... the side window is a lot lower than an Oshkosh ... and its a lot wider than an Oshkosh cab

and this is one of the Pacifics from down south here .... totally different in the cab and guards

Could it be an old Zeligson ?. We had a few in Aus on the East Coast up in QLD on logging work in and around Maryborough/Fraser Island.

...Do we know that pic is precisely of a Tasmanian logger ?
