Found this M123 10 ton available up near Spokane Washington. Has the v8 cummins 300 engine. Posting this in here since it's in this area.

THAT is certainly a 123 alright, sometimes I forget just HOW BUG that truck really is! I owned one for a bit with the same V8 as this one and I bought it really just to save it from the scrapper but let me tell you a person really wants to have one of these trucks to own one! Parts are hard to get with a lot of them having to come from Italy now, the truck is darned tough to drive on any roads because its to wide. The TOP speed I ever saw was around 40 mph, and I read in the TM for the truck to expect around .75 MPG! Beautiful old piece of history and I would buy another to save it but never to actually own it!

This one needs to move within the next 2 months.

If I were to buy one I'd put it to use and update some of the drivetrain for better parts availability/speed/fuel economy. According to the TM measurements if the rear fenders and outside wheels are removed it's within legal width.

Truck is huge! Grandfather to the m1070

If these are the Bridge Trucks Grant County uses them for Gian off road fire fighting rigs. They put a 3k gallon tank in the rear 1400r20s on the wheels and a joystick controlled spray nozzle on the front bumper.

The one I posted is a private seller, not a company or county.

That is not a bridge truck. Bridge trucks are on a 5 ton chassis. 5 ton rims won't fit a m123 as the center hole is too small to go over the hubs.

Gotcha so it must be rocking the 1400x24 not tires then... yup it's a beast then! Best use for a rig that massive is an off-road log truck or dumper!
