IH 7400 WITH LEACH 2R11 REAR LOAD GARBAGE TRUCK
« on: December 29, 2018, 11:45:17 PM »
I received this cool Ratcliffe garbage compactor at Christmas time, I decided an older re-conditioned build for this one utilizing a Boley IH 7600 cab that started out with a rear load compactor on the back. The Boley version is pre 2008 as that was prior to the Workstar up grade. Seeing as I have a 7600 in my collection but no 7400, this one needed a few changes. Filing off the flares on the front and then removing the lower valance extension turns this one into a 7400.

then the refuse body has been assembled and painted, mock fit up on the chassis....same WB as the Boley one.


you can see the old compactor body in the background, looking rather squarish and bulky.

Agree with Kurt - your (scale) garbage fleet is growing.
Vocational stay close to home.

I think this will be it for the time being Kurt, the old rear loader is about a 76 or so, now with 4 trucks of various disposal tasks, this small town company is capped ::)

The cab/chassis ready to accept the body

Dennis Aust 5 hole steel wheels on the rear with modified Athearn front wheels, scratch-built fuel tank and exhaust stack out of K&S tube with heat shield from a car carrier rack

the body set on chassis

a look after a few days of working.......can't be clean back there long ::)

Thanks Mark, yes, would be crappy work for sure!

Here is the reason for the upgrade! The old Ford C cab has run it's course!

and here is the replacement ready for duty!


and just to answer your quest Kurt, here is the fleet, I think they can handle all the disposal needs of the region.


Now, onto big trucks again.

Jim.
