  4. I have one of the Campanellla 719's. What I know about it is that it was sold to another sand and gravel co, then it was a lo-bed tractor for a crawler crane co. that changed the 864 to a DD 318, then a landscape contractor used it as a hydroseeder unit, and I have had it since 2003. Photos (2012). I have seen some L models with the Campanella orange, and Campanella-Cardi, green with orange wheels. FW

  6. Yes, but Paul the ULTIMATE hard on for Pop was when we picked up the FWD after I had bought it- he was sitting in the passenger seat, I was behind the wheel.....we look at each other and said "wow this is fucking weird....." then I looked out across that hood, and at the time, it looked like it was 7 miles long....I said out loud "oh my god what have I done?" He really enjoyed watching the boys climbing on yellow today......and Large and Small rode with him inside the cab, and medium rode the jumpseat....I think he really enjoyed that.

  7. The 1978 Hahn has been rescued from it's death sentence of neglect, sitting on that farm it was on in Central Bucks County, Pa. Headed up and down some good hills on Pa 611 to 212 to 412 into Hellertown, about a 20 mile ride- not one single solitary hiccup. She acted as if she had just pulled out of our firehouse 10 years ago and wanted to go to a fire. Originally the old man who owned her said we could keep it there until the spring, but he started getting squirrely on us, so we wanted the truck out of there. She's about 5 minutes from my house- outside...Booo.....But we're working on somethi

  8. I spent most of the day yesterday moving stuff out of the red truck into the other red truck. That's a job! We switched the headache rack, tool boxes, chains, binders, tarps, all the equipment in the side boxes, and most of my personal belongings. Got to go back to the shop today and finish. I got lucky just because I picked the red truck- the last time I took my truck to Truck Enterprises because the red engine light was coming on Jeff said he was going to trade it. He said there were about 6 T800's up there, and to "look at them and see which one you want." They had 2 charcoal gray

  9. Now I say this whlie owning a E9, but I've never been a big fan of V8 diesels. More times than not, they will have a shorter stroke due to the Vee design. Shorter stroke means less torque. They are also usually harder to work on because they have more parts and the whole thing is usually stuffed in a tighter package. V8s are fine for your 350 chevys but when it comes to heavy duty diesels, I want a in-line.

  11. I agree it would make a great plow GreenGiant. I kinda think my plow days could be coming to an end though. Contracts are going for cheap $$$$$ and require new equipment. Something I don't agree with. My R is in its 30 th winter plowing , 18 th winter for me, and it has never let me down. The new equipment is breaking down all the time. Last winter at one point they had 4 broke down with electronic or DPF issues.

  15. I noted and respect the opinions (thoughts) expressed by you and David Wild. (facts?) Given that you've never met me, and know nothing about me..........I'm surprised that you nonetheless can say that you have zero respect for me (your right, of course). Left views? Sorry, you lost me there. My posts were only about presenting a more detailed picture of the significant situation unfolding (what CNN does not present). David Wild's first post includes numerous derogatory remarks. I'm confident that he could have expressed his views on a higher plane than that.

I missed getting individual pics of a few of them, including Lincolnway's recently retired CF which carried the Chief's ashes to the cemetary, but here's what I got:

  18. Truck was taken to paint and body yesterday. They will be cutting out and replacing two rusted spots in the cab and fixing three fiberglass spots on the hood. Also painting the fenders, visor and top of the cab black while everything else is maroon. They will be replacing all the weatherstripping, felt and gaskets on the cab and hood, all hood parts, two windshields and a new driver seat. As an added bonus the frame and exhaust uprights will be blasted and repainted black. I'm being told it should take about two weeks to complete the job.

  19. Finally got my new to me Mack dump on the road after having Antrim spice it up. Thought some you fellow rednecks would be interested in what was done and the outcome. Bought an 05 granite with a 460 and an 18sp with 4.35 rears. Felt sluggish when I drove it to Antrim. They dynoed it before modifications and it made 278 hp at the rear wheels. Ended up three of the unit pump (???) injectors were bad. Put in some modified injectors, Detroit series 60 turbo, and area diesel module and it made 467 hp at the rear wheels, 497 with fan off. It now pulls good and is fun to drive. Need to keep a

  21. Phil here from Oxford, England. Have a R719LS that was part of a batch of 12 Macks bought by Campanella Corp (Sand & Gravel) of Jefferson Boulevard, Warwick, Rhode Island, 02886 back in January 1970. Truck is still running fine, with pretty much all it's original running gear despite it's engine* spec - ENDT864 + Quadraplex gearbox(es). *believed to be not that reliable and often swapped. Anyhow, I wonder if there are any members who might have any knowledge / recall / information / images etc of the trucks used (and in particular the R719) that were used by Campanella Corp ?

  22. A couple of weeks ago I found a Mack extinguisher listed with a fairly reasonable "buy it now" price so I grabbed it. I have been stalking eBay for months trying to find a Mack extinguisher for the 75A and for the AB. Right after I bought this one I found two more for a fair price that I bought as well, including one that dates from the very early years with "International Motors" as well as the Mack logo on it. I lent the early extinguisher to a friend to display on his AB since mine will not be finished for a couple of years. Given how pricey the extinguishers have become I felt like I

  23. Sounds pretty fair, is that 25% of the cost of new tyres? I've seen a few posts about tyre prices over there in the states, and I think your paying too much for them! Anyway, you could always put a regroover on them tyres to give you a few more mm of tread.

  24. The new owner probably too like bulldosers. Or there was another reason in swapping the engine in running truck. Although it's a common thing when a man put his hands on stuff wich is new to him. Getting fresh paint CAT looks nice on its new place.

  25. The U.S. media is now shining a big spotlight on the Syrian refugee debate. Supposedly, U.S.-bound Syrians are actual refugees, and not economic migrants the likes of what’s showing up on Europe’s door from countries other than Syria (4 out of 5 are not from Syria). Much of the debate is over why the U.S. should take refugees when Middle East countries for the most part are not. Arab League (and Gulf Cooperation Council) members Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman and the UAE have reportedly not taken in any refugees. These Gulf States elected not to sign the 1951 United Nations Refug

  26. The Aerialscope has the designation of being one of the most versatile aerial devices designed specifically for firefighting. Capable of maintaining a 1000lb basket load while being able to flow 1000gpm at any angle or amount of extension is one of the things that makes them what they are, and the reason that FDNY has purchased so many of them throughout the years.

  29. Rowdy. I'm running Rochester stage 2 injectors and their vision HP turbo on my 01 427. The injectors where 900 and turbo was just 200 more than a stocker. It's a whole lot more turbo than stock as well. It made night and day difference in the way truck pulls. It just hangs in there at 13 to 14 hundred and pyro has never hardly reached 1000 even on hot days. At stock when the fan kicked on you would just about have to drop a gear now don't even notice its on during a hard pull.

  32. Look at the local utilites and cable companies, they usually sell 6 to 8 year old 29 foot plus reach bucket trucks for anywhere from $7500 and up. Have a 2004 GMC G3500 Caravan chassis with a Verslift 31 foot bucket on it. I bought it from Optimum Cable, paid $8100 for it. It's in Virginia putting gutters on our new old house.

  36. I was just thinking about BJ's trailer as soon as I started reading this thread. I think he waited over 10 weeks and I'll have to ask him again but I'm pretty sure he said he wouldn't deal with Kens again. I've always head the trailer is what makes the difference. I know BJ said its night and day difference between his spring ride steel and his air ride aluminum. And if you do order new, get the lift axle like BJ did. Makes sense since you are empty all the time. I heard Trailstars are junk. I'd only think about MAC or East. BJ's is a MAC. And I know of someone else that was talking about b

  39. Here is the facts as I see them. I respect the Office of the President but not the man or 95% of his cabinet or any of his / their actions. They in my eyes have done nothing good for this country as a whole, only caused division and mistrust between citizens. Nothing has shown me any reason to respect the man. ISIS. Create a coalition, join with Russia. . . do what ever is needed but get the job done. Remove the R.O.E. and fight a total war. Let the Commanders in the field run it.

  41. In the fight against ISIS, Russia isn’t taking prisoners RT / Op-Edge / November 18, 2015 The so-called Islamic State should have learned by now: they've picked a fight against the wrong guys. We have entered "take no prisoners" territory. For Russia, now all the gloves are off. Especially after online terrorist magazine Dabiq published a photo of the alleged bomb that downed the Metrojet airliner killing 224 people: a crude device inside a can of Schweppes, placed under a passenger seat. Also published were photos of passports of Russian victims, allegedly taken "by the mujahedeen." Thei

So I piled on a few fire wood logs to take over to my uncles and went off into the sun. Got about 30 miles round trip and zero issues. Life is good. Don't beat me up over the ratchet strap tie downs it is what I had since my chains and binders haven't arrived yet.

  46. My empty is right at 28,000. I have 46,000 rears and double frame from the fuel tanks back. That Underhill truck is probably a thousand pounds less than my truck. The truck from Cali looks nice, would just be a matter of getting there to look at it and then getting it back. It can be done though. I used to see that Underhill truck at Unilock all the time. I didn't do a full on inspection on the truck, but it was definitely well kept. You won't find a cleaner 98 of any brand in Northern IL, especially one that is actually for sale. If that truck was a CH or RD that was just as clean and set up

I actually have one of their old flaps and it looks pretty cool...what do you guys think? They would pobally have to be white plastic as pictured, but I may still be able to do black plastic and/or rubber...Let me know what you think and I'll keep you posted.
