I was going through some old pictures tonight and came upon this one. This was a light / medium duty rotator from the late 80's or early 90's.


I don't even remember how I got the pictures or what brand the bed is or was. Does anyone remember it or know if it still exists?

That looks like something from the mind of Bill Bottoms, Challenger way pre-miller, just a guess.........

I'm guessing Bill Bottoms as well.

The address on the door in the second pic looks like Ohio.

Was a guy at our yard last weak picking up a wrecked tractor. He was from the Medina, OH area, I think it was H & H towing. He was telling me about his small rotator he had on an S-series International. I was thinking, why would someone build a 600-R on an S-series, but this may have been what he was talking about.

I remember talking to Mr. Parker of Parker Repair in Manteno, Il, years ago! He show me a truck very similar in his storage shed, to many other cars and trucks were in the way, to get a good look at it! He told me, a man in Ohio built two of them! His and another one, unfortunately the Ohio man passed away before he could build anymore! I believe, Mr. Parker still has his truck.

Kizer made a small rotator in the 80's only rotated 45 degrees. Saw one on a one ton ford many years ago.
