What is that thing on the B75?
I was told it's a Quikway loader. Oil field use I believe since it's in Oklahoma.
Note the American Coleman front drive axle on the B-75.
Here is another picture of a Mack Howe Coleman 6X6 from The Howe picture library courtesy of Craig Trout.. and his comments about the Mack / Coleman connection here.
I like that EH or EQ whatever it is!
This photo of the Howe Coleman conversion brings up the question.
When did Mack discontinue making their own driven steering axle and go to the outside conversion equipment??
Howe Coleman was built in troy N.y until the very late 80's. I understand American Coleman was a Colorado based company that did their units until the late 70's. There axles and parts are some what similar and both used the "moon"style cover. I think since the truck was an oil field unit and was moe than likely done in Colorado probably when tge Quikway was cobbled together for it.
I think (???) Howe Coleman in Troy / Albany was just a conversion company and the axles them selves were made in Colorado
Here is a link to a lot of Coleman info:
