Howard, it's actually the same model number that Gar Wood used on the WLF and KW M1A1 wreckers, all are model US6. The main difference is the curved boom used on the early C2's. The crane towers are the same size. Hope to see you at Harrisonburg. I plan to be at Macungie too.


Mr. Ahab, the US6 was installed on a 1970 International Fleetstar 1910A and had been used as a yard crane in a junkyard. It had not moved in several years. I found it in November after someone posted a photo of it on Facebook. The IH is really rough but may have a good RD450 engine. We'll see if it wants to run.

First photo is the one I saw on FB. I knew right away what it was.
