G'day Chris,

I am in the southern half of the hemisphere at this time 8) 8). It is raining here in Auckand, New Zealand, today >:( and we start heading south tomorrow. We will attend a native cultural center O0 and see the thermal area. Did you find a rail or bus schedule that seems to be satisfactory for the 28th?

The metal building will house wood processing equipment. Things like planers, bandsaws, and my circular sawmill. He has 480 volt, 3-phase, electrical service on site so everything will be electrically powered.

Your truck looks alot like mine. Mine is a 1974 gmc with a 6v53 detroit. The trans is a 5sp main and a 4 speed aux.

I got mine a year ago and it ran well but I was getting some anti freeze in the oil. I found that the 2R clinder liner was dripping at the liner seal. I got a brand new short block minus 1 cylinder kit from ebay for $500 delivered and changed out the liner, piston and rod into the truck. I will get it running in the next day or two. 

Before I tore it apart I ran it for about two weeks and durring that time I hauled and about 150 round bales 14 bales aload and about 30 cords of 16 foot logs. The truck is one of the most usefull machines on my farm.

With ag plates it only costs $190 a year in vermont and I don't need a cdl.

Oh I almost forgot Load capacity...I think based on using mine and having run a crane during the 1980s that 12K is way to high, at least mine won't come close to that. More like 4k -6k within about 8-10 feet. This link will give you specs (down load PDF) for the newer prentice truck selfloader http://www.prenticeforestry.com/self-loaders-spec-sheets.aspx

I might be wrong but I used to run a crane on a USCG barg and I would pick up 15k bouy sinkers and I am sure that my Prentice 110 would not budge something like that. Based on that experence I think that the specs for the new loaders in the PDF are pretty
close for the same reach distances. The new loaders do have more reach.

grassfed,

Thanks for the info. In Minnesota, a farm license for a truck costs $194 and can be paid by quarters. I am looking forward to putting mine into operation. This truck has no major issues according to what I was told. The hydraulics are tight and in good order.

grassfed-We used to have three trucks just like that for hauling sweet corn from the field to the canning factory.

You sure did not have to worry about falling asleep with that big Detroit.

Our trucks had 4 speed main box and 4 speed aux. box.

Needless to say you never ran out of gears.

I am still waiting for the registration paperwork to be issued. I have it registered as a farm truck as the rules are less strict. I expect to pick it up next week and drive it to my brother's farm. I will be picking up a 1930s vintage Case Model C on the way. I bought the Case as a parts tractor and I plan to check out the loader when picking it up. The tractor has only two wheels and one of them is a rear that is flat!

I will post the results when they happen. I also am working on getting the logs from a 40 acre tract that a friend just bought. that would be another test.

Hey all,
I just joined this forum...looks like a great place!
I've got a prentice also (on a 75 Mack) and am wondering how much the loader weighs (not how much it can lift).  If you took the whole loader off the truck frame, what would it weigh?  Anybody know, or hazard a good guess?
thanks,
~martin

I don't have any specifics about weight, but Chris sounds about right with an estimated weight around 3, 000#. I will be checking out the capacity of my Prentice in about a week. I had to replace some tires, lights and the battery before putting it into service. I have finally have the new registration and insurance forms.
