    Westvaco used Morbark chippers at all their woodyards. The old ones had 12V71 Detroits and the knuckle booms with 50 or 60 levers on them, their newer ones had 600hp Cummins engines on them. They would both sit there and run wfo all day long every day, only stopping to change knives once in a while. I moved this one from Dillwyn, Va. to Parkersburg, W.V. with this F model Mack, around 1980. That picture was in my oldest photo album, here's a few more from my chip hauling days- "Corn Stalk"s V8 Mack on the dump. The dump is only about half way up, it was dang near straight up when it got to the top. Sitting on top of the mountain on rt. 60, east of Buena Vista, Va. I walked up on the bridge where the Blue Ridge Parkway goes over rt. 60 to take this picture. Sitting at my uncle's house. Sitting at the bottom of the mountain on rt. 130. I had walked down to the James River. I didn't always sit around, sometimes I actually hauled chips. Chip pile at Westvaco in Covington, Va. I used to have a hammock...and long hair.

    http://www.gofundme.com/7d9t38 Ladies and Gentlemen, especially Veterans of the Armed Forces but most especially the USMC: I normally do not share stuff like this, however this one hits close to home. Allow me to explain- Reagan Odhner is a member of my Volunteer Company (as is her sister- who is an active interior firefighter and who also just got hired as a cop in Prince George's County, Maryland.) Her family and my family are very close. Reagan served honorably in the USMC for 4 years. She was recently diagnosed with a rare form of blood cancer and is in need of financial assistance to help offset the costs of treatments. I am asking my BMT Family to please consider helping her. I know times are tough, so if you cannot help financially, take a moment of your time and say a prayer for this extraordinarily outstanding young lady and her family as well. Also if you are able please share this link on your facebook or through your email contacts. Thank you for your time. In Truck Brotherhood, YARDO.

    It was a slow week once the wheel seal was fixed twice. Got to deliver in Kearny NJ Nice ford from a local company. Luckily I already know where I'm going, cause if I didn't they wouldn't tell me how to get there. And this ones going to take a little planing. This must have been a show truck cause they were trailering it. Another lift out of Bedford PA My local Mack dealer doing CNG conversions on cummins powerd volvos. And a new mack.

    Thanks for the input! As for a VIN im not sure, I havent bought the truck yet, maybe next time i stop down there i can grab it. Its got a 250 Mack with a duplex. The age was part of what really sparked my interest in the truck, along with its overall condition. I hope I can get it soon, im getting anxious to start on it! Heres a few more pics of it.

    This is a 1955 LJSWX. The truck was owned by my grandfather and used to move Equipment, Machinery and Houses In and around the Lawrence, MA area. The truck has been restored and remains in my collection. Pictures attached of the truck working and fully restored.

    Gentlemen thank you for your kindness. They posted the link yesterday in the hopes of raising a goal in a few weeks. In the span of less than 12 hours, they are halfway there. Tom, I had no idea. You have my sincerest condolences. I hate cancer with a passion. It has taken so many family members and friends, too. My wife is a cancer nurse, so I also get to hear about it on a clinical level too- she often connects with her patients only to lose them in a few weeks, months or years. My heart breaks for her, I keep telling her not to get personal with the patients but a Nurse (especially a dedicated one) cannot do that.

    A good sign guy could make stripes like the ones on your dads truck from vinyl. Could be sweet in red and white on that blue.

    Here's one for the Volvo haters.......2013 Class8 Truck Sales year to date. U.S. Volvo 20,033 Mack 15,484 Canada Volvo 3,653 Mack 2,155 Apparently someone thinks Volvo is good, LOL They outsold Mack. And both market shared are up from 2012. We should start a poll here.....all the new Mack and Volvo haters....list what year and model of truck you currently own. o then we can see if you are talking out of experience. LOL.
