I was at Memphis Equip. last week and saw a picture on the bulletin board.
It was a rig built by a guy in IN. He called it a MOS (mule on steroids). I
don't remember all the details, but it was built from M37 axles, used 4AO84
engine, hydrostatic trans., top speed of 7 mph. The steering was all
hydraulic and wheels could bee steered at both ends and even crab. I'd like
to see it in person, impressive looking vehicle.
By the way, it was my first visit the Memphis Equip. I've been by there
hundreds of times when I used to work a lot in Memphis, but never bothered
to stop. Great bunch of guys, and lots of green things to look at. I asked
about some wheels for a small dolly set, and they said they didn't have
anything like that. I got to looking around the lot and found the only pair
they had. Nobody knew they were there. They do some impressive things in the
shop too. We were given the grand tour by Paul, who was very accommodating.
THANKS PAUL !!!!!!
