...a big old beast  !!   Kiwi modified with a 'dead' axle postioned in front of the drivers......

...and an F1800with a load that today would have the ''troffic craps''  in a frenzy of ticket writing excitement...

...two Macks and the 55B Michigan Loader..pictured at a remote part of the South Island's west coast...The cab had to be removed from the 55B due to a rock bluff to negotiate, with very limited over head clearance

XA   Brett.....it did huge miles on forestry   roads...one day the front suspension  fell out on the right hand side.....It was quite close to the Caterpillar 930  Loader  at the time....so we lifted the old XA onto one of the Macks...and the three of us squeeeeezed     in and went home ..not a very pleasant trip over 60 odd miles.....

...this seems to be a site to deviate slightly  on...in respect of the content  !!  I have a lot more truck pictures to come...as I un-scramble hundreds of 35 mm slides

picture of an AD7   Fiat (Allis )  that I had for many years...dragging some questionably   ''legal '' native logs from our property...some years ago.....I used the timber to line out the inside of our house...at the time

t'other  pics are the D7   and the Cat 930 loader tearing down our sheds after a major flood in 1976...(no talk of globull   warming back then.....)

And I thought some of the logs in the pics. I posted on "Logging Sleighs" were big. Nothing compared to these dandies in NZ.  Does Oz have the same kinds and sizes of timber?

Australia has some big trees...still upright over in South Western Australia....I don't  about any other place..We have some huge trees i n  NZ....and whats left of the native indigenous  are protected....or...there is a major hurdle to over come to fell any of these remnants

..pictured is the humble ''Monterey  Pine'' an insipid   apology for a conifer in its  Southern California   home.... but in New  Zealand   they  bloody grow like weeds ...anywhere...and this no doubt is an old planting/....perhaps 120 yrs old but it is massive...this down at the Rainbow  Station   ''wet' farm
