Most around here were used in lumber yards/mills or used as logging trucks for small outfits. These made it easier for loggers to get in and out of muddy roads with a 4x4 system instead of the longer drag time with a small dozer to get to the logs. As a matter of fact.....a guy that logged near us growing up had one. Kept his family fed for years until he made enough to buy a larger Aeromax. Good buy for the price if its not totally rusted out and runs

Lowriders are for guys who can't get it up!

Your looking for a good deal of work then. Auto: should be difficult enough for ya! One piece wheels: GOOD LUCK! engine: You'd be surprised what that thing will do with the gear setup like it has! 8' blade should be good!

So what did you do with the 4WD f600 ? boy, that sounds like fun!

I am looking for anything on f600s - I don't want to go back any further than 1958 or 1960 and not interested in anything newer than about 1979 - I think the 1980 was a whole different thing.

If anyone can suggest a good web site or other information source on these I would appreciate it a lot.
