That is a awesome find you got there! Really enjoyed the pictures good job saving this rare machine. I would really like to to see this thing up and running pulling wood! I'd be all over it if it was ever for sale.

Think the seat is out to work on the transfer case.

Here's some other pics I took this is facing forward has 3 glass windows in front.
 (Image hidden from quote, click to view.)

Sticker on the dash shows the control pattern and the shift pattern and the dash panel.
 (Image hidden from quote, click to view.)

Picture from the left hand side facing forward it has a 5 speed transmission with the reverser on the transfer case so its 5 forward and 5 reverse.
  (Image hidden from quote, click to view.)

Picture of the arch I forgot to mention its a 2 cable/2 winch machine. I have to put the winches back on supposedly they've both been sent out and rebuilt so hopefully that's true.

This is the tag on the 3 cylinder liquid cooled diesel.
 (Image hidden from quote, click to view.)

And I think this is the vin tag can anybody read this and tell me what it says haha.

Sorry about some of the pics I tried rotating them and its not working so everyone tilt your heads left


Well, you got your self a project. :) Good luck with it and let as know, how things come along.
Make sure you know how to fall properly when you fall and as to not hurt anyone around you.
Also remember, it's not the fall what hurts, its the sudden stop. !!

  Might be a collectors item (Big Grin). My guess on the VIN tag would make it serial Number 01 ???
  Seriously, good luck with the machine. It looks to be the right size for what you want. Now let's hope you can get 'er up and running.

I notice the gear is wiped next to the trans or transfer case on the left side, that looks simple to make. I am not a fan of the  metal cab and windows with glass. I would want some heavy screen, so I could see better and be safer in the woods! I'm sure you bought it right, I hope you have fun getting her back in action, best of luck.

Nash did in fact sell these neat little skidders years ago, call the parts guy there I bet he would know where to get parts.  Good luck!

Well she's finally home.  8) 8) . I work with the guy I bought it from so he loaded it up and brought it into work then I hooked to his trailer and brought her home. It seemed heavier then I thought it would be. But that could be because the trailer is a pintle hook I'm use to hauling goosenecks so the extra back and forth could make it seem heavier. What do you guys think it weighs? I'll get some pics tommorrow

I picked up the winches last night had to roll them onto my truck there heavier then they look. There chain driven and either air or hydraulically operated.

 



Heres where they mount theres another transfer case with a gear inside there looks like it runs to one winch then from that winch to the other when you engage the shaft from the main transfer case they must both turn and then the air or hydraulics engages or disengages which one you want. One bolts on top and one bolts on the back with pillow block type bearings.
