Hi guys thought id just tip my hat as we have just upgraded from a medium underlift to this big old girl 🙂

yep shes abit on the old and slow side but shes in pretty good condition all round (cab needs some work lol), but its a rockwell double drive rear with a zacklift 403 and best of all a sweet sounding stack with a 3 stage jake brake.

Thats a tidy looking unit......You can do so much with the 750.

We had one similar with the Rolls engine, a bit gutless when you had a big load on,  but it did its job ok.

Good luck with this one.

Still looking good we fitted the Zacklift on there for Cawsey commercials

 

cablemonkey360 said:

Falkom, have you got any info on it i.e what was it a new lift and what year was it fitted, as its pretty mint still

 

roaduserscharges said:

I thought all those scammells just rusted away. what is your tare weight.?

 

cablemonkey360 said:

Rust away never661.gif  new cab coming after the new year, the rest is mint

I haven't actually weighed it, but the plate is 25ton gross vehicle weight and  65ton train weight so she's a big old girl.

 

ROBREC said:

your cab doesn't look that bad are you gettin one of those ex mod cabs trimmed or not once fitted a non trimmed cab bit of a mission you got alot of good features no engine mangerment lights or abs or limp mode .

the rot is mainly under the front and has been hidden kinda well, but I was advised by the guy I bought it of that its gonna need a new cab, so I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place do I rip it apart with a view to welding and then find out its a right old mess, or do I do a cab swap? so as down time is of the up most I decided to go down the replacement cab route.

as it should only be a weekend job691.gif and then if the cab isn't as bad as first thought I can repair in slow time and sell on.

yes it will be a ex army cab, they are the only ones about that have had an easier life, Im gonna swap the complete interior and dash for 2 reason the army ones are LHD and the interiors are always basic and rough!

we fitted a modern air seat just easier on your back if you ever do long distant job and night heater to assist the cab heater but ok motors paid for newer trucks a good start   cheers

 

cablemonkey360 said:

Air seat you must be a mind reader as its already in hand, it has a night heater fitted but tbh we don't use it as the cab is plenty warm (to warm sometimes!) you right it is a good starter truck as it will do pretty much anything we will need and more without spending 50K +
