Might be worth it just for the Eller hard top.

These, in the day when heaven was falling, The hour when earth's foundations fled, Followed their mercenary calling, And took their wages, and are dead.

Their shoulders held the sky suspended; They stood, and earth's foundations stay; What God abandoned, these defended, And saved the sum of things for pay.

Hello,

yeah, so that is Gordon123 in Scotland.

The truck is a 416 U1100 with a trailing non driven axle.

But I don't know if Gordon has a brother...

Here's another picture.

Cheers, Rolf in Montreal

It was posted a few pages back: http://www.benzworld.org/forums/unim...ml#post4197777 But not much more info, I'd like to know how it steers without ripping everything apart...

It's a very short mog pulling a trailer with an exceptionally shorty draw bar.

Wheres the fuel tank, where are the air tank. Having owned a short wheel base 1200 there is not much room on the chassis for stuff when you only have 4 wheels. If it is a real truck, and its a driven portal axle in the middle it can't be mounted on springs the axle must be bolted to the frame. The frame dips down at the tranny (no place for springs, or up travel). My $$ is on a photo shop pictures.

I don't believe it's photoshopped. Look at the centre axle, the way the light falls on it, it's not a copy from another wheel on the same vehicle (mud in wrong places....) Very specialised work perhaps where turning isn't as important as very high traction. If the rear pair were on a bogey of some description then the mounting point would be in the middle of the pair. What would be very interesting is to know if that is 6x6 or 4x6, if it's 6x6 is the rear axle driven and then a short prop to the middle axle? Is it rear steer? Hell, looking at the thing, does it need to steer? Is there anything it couldn't just drive over?
