    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.

    I was doing the same routine this week, mill rolls from Petersburg to Milton. Not much new to see, so i'll try to have even more gripping descriptions than usual. Lot of snow still around Tuesday, but blue sky and dry roads. Saw some beasts- ...and this thing- Saw this moron come off the ramp at a high rate of speed, hit the left lane,pass everybody on the highway,and was gone- all with that little donut spare that looked like a bicycle tire. Planes in the field. A house on the hill. Going up a hill on the W.V.Turnpike. The tunnel you used to go through is off to the left. Going west up North Mountain. Just to the right of that spot on the window you can see old rt. 60, there's a hairpin turn there by the spot. Saw this trucking terminal across the river from the turnpike. Smith's Transfer used that terminal, several companies use it now I think, there's a couple of Pitt-Ohio trucks backed up to doors in the picture but they're kind of hard to see. Speaking of trucking companies, never heard of this outfit before- could be out of Winfall. Saw this unit in the mirror yesterday. I thought it was hauling mail until it passed me, then I saw the tail gate and realized it was a chip truck. You can see the vent holes in the second picture. That's only the second straight truck i've ever seen hauling chips. I got to Milton about 4:30 Wednesday evening, unloaded, then had to wait until 11:30 yesterday morning for them to finish the roll they were working on. This one was ready, and the other one was part of the set. They said it was "urgent" so I waited on it, and they unloaded them in Petersburg last night. I bob tailed down to Sheetz while I was waiting to get a sammich. I picked up this little "Trucks for Sale" magazine while I was there, "Truck Round Up". Anyway, it had some interesting units in it for sale. This one in "Wheels of Time" might be the bargain of the day though-

    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.

    Time to start rebuilding this thread. Alyne uses this nice B to catch new drivers. I believe they still use Macks in the fleet.

    The most interesting question (for some of us) was that U-model or DM? I like those snowy and sunny road shots (as usual), the beasts are cool. At least no less cooler than the goats on the hill. And those B&W adds in the magasine - were they fresh or they'we just a history?

    No Pledge of Allegence (spell?) in schools, no American Flags in most class rooms, no respect for God , Country or themselves and others! Just ME , ME , ME!! Taught from pre K on! They want everything from the country and give nothing back . . . least of all respect for those of us who served it and love it. Paul

    I took this photo in Indianapolis in the early 1990s. Indianapolis Mack was the Scania and Iveco dealership for central Indiana. This unit worked for Hole-In-One Donuts. They hauled restaurant provisions from Indiana to Florida. They also owned another Scania. It was a straight truck van. The driver of this tractor said he loved the ride. He really gushed about the synchromesh transmission, which was unavailable on any American truck. The one complaint he had was that it was sluggish up the mountains down I-75 and I-65 in Kentucky and Tennessee. Scania didn't offer an intercooler on it's American spec diesels. This might of boosted the horsepower on it's engines. Scania still sells trucks in Mexico. Scanias can be scene along the boarder towns of Arizona and Texas and a few miles in to the USA.
