Chicago R models


Recommended Posts

Today I actually had to go to Roscoe Ready Mix to pick up a couple loads of "special" golf course sand, and it is confirmed. Ozinga did

buy Roscoe. They have a help wanted sign out and Ozinga stickers on all the "usable" mixers. I think they have at least one old mixer

from every company in northern IL. They even had an old Material service Brigadier converted into a six wheeler. They had a heck of a

boneyard. Also saw the Slaughbaugh services RD today and as I worked my way back east I saw a square headlight Value Liner that

looks like the one that was for sale on 12 in Wauconda awhile back. Looks like Ozinga is taking over. If I see candy cane stripes on the

orange & white trucks from Marengo they'll have everybody :whistling:

edit: Before I forget, Ozinga only bought the mixers from Roscoe, not the pits or dump trucks, Those are still Roscoe.

Yesterday in Sycamore I saw an Ozinga truck but looked like it had I different name on the door. Was too far away to see what it said.

Funny thing is I drove by Super Mix in Belvidere today and took these pics. I didn't see any Ozinga signs up though. I like that they still have an RD.

as far as I know, Bill "jive" Jarvis still does lettering and pinstriping. He is getting up there and it takes him a while but it's better than stickers anyday in my book. he did mine about 4 years ago. Rick Bendi still does does it too.

So my mirror clips came in, to help them from vibrating, and had CIT Rockford put them on today. Thankfully CIT Troy where I bought the truck from was paying for it cause the clips alone where $330. So then when I was done had to head to Kirkland to pick up,the tank and start hauling fertalizer. after I got hooked up I headed out and didn't even get one mile out of town and the freakin mirror went flying off the truck. While I was driving I had a county sherif on my butt so when I pulled over he pulled over with me. He was actually really cool. He went back to get the mirror for me and it was destroyed. The funny thing was he told me if I had problems at the dealership he had it all on his dash cam and to call him, lol. I shouldn't asked him to send me a copy of it, lol. So then I had to go back up to CIT and thankfully they had another mirror. I told the mechanic that he was gonna get the 7 years bad luck since he is the one that didn't fix it right in the first place. Lol

I sure hope this isn't how the rest of the season is gonna go.

But saw some mixers at the dealership while I was there.

Then me hooked to the tank.

jive's shop is on 171 in Lockport, but he might come to you if you have a shop. bendi is also top notch. jive did mine (see above). this black kw is all hand lettered and striped by rick bendi. now that I really look at the picture, I don't think the kw was done when I took the picture - I know there is some cool striping on the hood, but it isn't there in this pic

All of that is hand painted?

Another Rich Johnson job.....KTI (Kaney Transport,Inc.) of Rockford had this nice Value-Liner running for them.......Al

That color looks like the same color my RS700L was when new.

The stripes are almost the same as my Dads late 70's R model. He had a Brown Truck with tan and orange stripes just like that.

I've never seen the clips. How do they attach to the mirror?

The pictures are not the greatest. There are 4 clips in the mirror and somehow it keeps them from vibrating, but the mirror still can be adjusted. Though they could only put the outer two on the passenger side cause for some reason with all four in it would bind up when trying to adjust them. Though those two are keeping it from vibrating.

I guess those clips are $20'a piece. Thankfully I didn't have to pay for them.
