Oshkosh Silent Hoist

Recommended Posts

Topic was originally created by Mark Redman on Tow411 in June of 2007:


It's been awhile since I've posted anything here. Several months ago we had some Oshkosh/Silent Hoist discussions with shots of these trucks in use by various towing companies. Here's a shot of one of these trucks doing what it was initially intended to do when in use by the US Navy. This was taken at Naval Air Station Lakehurst, NJ in the late 1950's or early 1960's. Standing by is an old Marmon-Herrington MB-1 crash truck and a couple of smaller MB-2 rigs.

Stay safe, everyone,
