I guess best to keep an open mind...We had the Zeligson here, they were on logs, and God only knows where they ended up. ???

.As an aside..............
.While looking on the web .I bumped onto a 2011 site whereby some bloke found an old puter...........
on the hard drive was hundreds of pics of old tassy logging trucks........
He had put them up, but they have been caught up in the photobucket fiasco .........

Billy.... I was the bloke who found the original photographer .... Actually an old long ago friend of my father....

Story goes that he lent a disc of photos to a friend ... But never got the disc back.... I am still trying to get copies back to Rodney the photographer

OK, you have our attention , now. All waiting to see what gets thrown up as to the make of the P/Mover. Had some interesting guesses, personally I don't have a clue. Had a bit of a Google look as the Swish suggested, some interesting stuff there, liked some of those tow behind trailers both wheeled and tracked for dragging logs out of the bush.
Surely plenty of readers in Tassie , who can enlighten us here on the "other" island?? Photo can't be all that old??

Well I thought I knew a fair bit about our old stuff here in Tassie... But it's got us all beat at the moment....

The photo would be mid 70s I believe

Only two cabs that I know of shaped like this are Oshkosh or AEC and it looks more AEC like to me
