That MH has been listed for quite a while. Being as cabover dump trucks are rare, I've always wondered if it was originally built for some other application and later turned into a dump. The 9 speed Eaton trans is odd for a dump truck too... What's it got for an engine?

H J Mohr was a big redimix co back in the day here in chicago. They shut the doors last year. Wonder if that's a relative, or something like that. Same paint scheme as the company trucks

Now your building a mystery. The town, Lac Du Flambeau is inside a Lake Superior Chippewa Indian Reservation? Not much in common with a Chicago Redimix Co.....

The Rez sovereign nation allows long term land leases to the white man. It’s nice lake country, large casino (Lake of the Torches), high-dollar resorts. Surrounded by resort towns like Minocqua. Illinois owns the Northbound lanes on Friday and Southbound lanes on Sunday afternoon. Possible H J had a resort and/or built them up there and kept a toy box? Not uncommon. 

Trying to figure out why the exhaust appears to run into a blank faced diamond plate box and then out the rear of it?

What could you carry in a dump bed without a gate and retain it with the tarp?
 

Tree debris removal? Only thing I’ve seen that kind of box used for. Usually that box would be longer and sit behind a mid-ship log grapple loader with spatula paddles on the grapple jaws. Our dealer would set up that style rigging for emergency cleanup after a Katrina event.

Took another look at body-looks  like it  has latches to secure load cover.  Silage of some sort- for  sure some sort of lightweight material.

Oh -Casino?  Cash?😎

you guys never hauled rocks ??? real rock bodies don't have gates, well maybe for a day or two.

I'll agree, undeniably, you operate in a world of outrageously over-sized loads with Wild Heavy Hauling, but if you want to convince me this baby is street legal I'm going to need a confirming opinion from a State Trooper...…

kidding aside, wouldn't rocks, like decorative boulders, have the box interior beat/dented to a bloody pulp and that slide-liner torn out?

yes they would be beat to death. and rock bodies are not made of aluminum, or have tarps either

Enjoy Bob, I went up and played with it a bit and took some pics. When I get around my lack of data I'll upload a cool pic of the wet tank blank-out box he built. Very clever.

Owners name was Steve Mohr. He was indeed from Chicago. Got the truck, as built, from a truck auction in California. He kept it up here as a play toy at his Minocqua resort, retired and turned it over to Scott to sell.
