I think I love this truck almost as much as I love my wood stove.

These days around where I'm at. They'd be calling for more ticket books cause they'd run out if they seen that. But 30 years ago my Brother had a 6X6 army truck with a Prentice F loader with a winch on back. Had more fun with that rig then we probly should've. I still have the loader & going to put it on something someday but not sure what yet. 8)

I have a Prentice loader I want to put on a 6x6 Deuce.  Do you remember how he was running the hydraulics?  I have a Detroit to run the Hydraulics but would rather run it off the PTO if it's possible.

What I remember of the Hyd's on the 6X6 was,he put a pto on the side of the tranny. Think it came with a manual 4 speed with a cover on passenger side I believe for a pto.He also added a tranny for crawling speeds but would leave the second one in neutral & first one in the gear that pump worked best. Added oil tank & filters. Actually used it after we got a cable Skidder. Loaded trucks with it. Now my Son is eyeing it up to put on his Chipper.

I may have everything on hand to do it except the linkage from the PTO to pump.

I think he made bunks for the back out of a old IH single axle frame. Cut the sides at the places they turned up & wielded back with reinforcements. Worked good for putting the 8 foot logs in. Never broke off. Held around 2 cord. Good size load for that rig.

 Maybe revive an old thread with a new picture.............. I saw this beside the road the other day as I was going in to a job. Don't know anything about it except it's pretty neat and looks to be in good shape. He seems to be all ready for winter.
 He'll need it, maybe---------------in Florida, Mass.
