Not even a minor problem, Lang.

Firm believer if something on radio or tv annoys me, instead of ranting about it, simply switch the beggar off!

If I was a few years younger I would go for it as a worthy replacement for my F86 Volvo 8 wheeler.

If you have ever been in cane areas and seen these bin (or rail car) trucks you will appreciate how much work he has done to clean it up for sale. They get so filthy that almost new trucks look derelict. You can see the push bar on the front to shove the rail cars around.

If he has not been doing off-season work it should be low milieage for the age of it,

I think a great truck for a collector who does a fair bit of travelling with their show vehicles, tractors or machinery. I also think the Inters have a nice easy cab to get into for us old blokes.

Could also have an undisclosed, pre-cane career as an agi or garbage truck, both onerous, low milage roles. Rarely do cane cockies buy new or sell whilst a machine is operable.

V8 I think you will find most of these 8 wheelers were company or subbie trucks on the job from new not individual cockies, who may have picked them up when they got tired on commercial cane hauling.

Mrs Mack may be able to confirm.

Cane hauling trucks are only washed and the end of the season
The sugar is very corrosive and as such it is better to leave them unwashed
These trucks are well used and the articulation of the chassis is amazing at times
They are generally very well maintained and driven like a race car
There are people in the cane areas that source trucks like these for contractors
Very few farmers harvest there own cane
Expect plenty of little knocks etc as it is pretty on the duco when your opening up a break
Not many people tow a break anymore, just into it, bang crash bang etc trying your best to open up a break and stay on a drill
At times you cant see the harvester 5 feet away

Paul

Your better to die trying than live on your knees begging

I'd suggest the very minimal paint wear on the driver's mudguard is a very good sign.

Most people "roll" out of an acco, rather than climb out.

Must say these are the roughest trucks Ive ever driven...if you are in any way tall ,you will continuously hit your head on the roof with a suspension seat ......without ,your dinner will always be in your mouth on anything but a billiard table road.............maybe the Leader 8 wheeler is rougher ,maybe a tie.
