Dairy Farmers in Grose st Parramatta had one as a yard tug circa 1962. All the road Bedfords towed single axle trailers and were equipped with the Scammel quick release system.

Photos from Allen Seymour. The Scammell worked at Picton NSW as a tow truck. The lifting gear was removed before selling the truck.

Wow, l didn't think any Explorers were exported to Australia. Looks like an earlier one with leaf spring supported front tow point.
I know some Explorers went to NZ but not with this cab shape.
Is this old girl still surviving in Australia, would love to find one myself ?

Brisbane City Council had one as a tram recovery vehicle. It went to the Tram Museum at Ferny Grove and is possibly still there.

The tram museum one is an ex-military tank transporter.



Or more likely a recovery vehicle.



Here is a later Explorer like Xspannerman put up
