|This Magirus Deutz 256 with its driven front axle is, I'm guessing, a gritter for use on icy roads.|
Something I'm not familiar with in our climate.
|In my last blog I showed a 4x2 TM Bedford tow truck with the narrow cab.|
This is a six wheeler with the wide cab operating from Plymouth.
|One of the most famous names in UK trucking was Scammell from Tolpits Lane in Watford.|
This appears to be an LAD cabbed Contractor, but being 6 wheel drive, it is in fact labelled an Explorer.
|Although for a short time we saw the bigger models of DAF with this type of cab in NZ, the lighter models like this F2200 were never imported here.|
|The C series Renault uses the "Club of Four" cab as seen on the above Volvo and the earlier shown Magirus Deutz.|
|A nicely restored 1937 ERF.|
With its growling Gardner right beside the driver it must have been hard on the ears and rather hot in the summer months.
|Another model not seen in NZ was the Foden 2200, seen here as a skip bin transporter.|
Kiwi Fodens were generally seen at the heavier end of the market, usually as 6x4s or 8x4s.
