  1. Our county Hwy. Dept. had a number of Walters. Got to ride shotgun on the wing one winter day filling in and watching snow fly. By the way early Walters were "Chain Driven" & without synchros.. Our shop had Old Number 887 with right hand wing, one way & V plows, And switched out rear duals for singles to take advantage of Full time 4 wheel drive. One time a grader (Austin Western Pacer 300 4x4) got stuck in a soft spot near a barn yard run off on County K west of US 12, I got the call to get old #887 and help get P. Keller get out of his predicament. I loaded Old #887 with a couple buckets of sand for weight . On the first try pulling the right rear pull hook got straightened out without breaking. On the second try pulling, old 887's hitch held and the grader survived for another day providing Dane county roads maintenance. Old 887 had a Cat Diesel and steel floor in the hugh cab.
