Now THIS is a snow plow!
1962 coleman snow plow/ dump truck
Only 6.5 miles a hour...
looks like a runner . only a few guys here need a plow for that long driveway
am I wrong or the plow controls mounted on fender
Perfect for anyone who owns an airport. Seems like a bargain.
The price seems fishy... Only $4800?
I've never heard of a Coleman. Looks like a tough, purpose built truck. I'm suprised Coleman manufactured their own rear axle. I only knew Mack made their own. The truck looks to be in great condition, but I'm guessing the "off" brand has something to do with the price. I wonder if parts are still available for it?
There's another Coleman snow plow truck, smaller and older, rusting away in a field near the Silverton Colorado train depot. Every time we are there my son wants to get it and restore it LOL
I'd seriously be considering that thing if it were closer. Spend some of the moldy money in our co-op road maintenance fund, and quit beating up my poor 3b.
I'm guessing they are secondary controls to use the hydraulics to operate something like a logsplitter? Or to hook up the plow without getting in/out of the cab 20 times?
Road trip! Another story for your grandkids!
I'm not sure State Farm would cover the tow charge on that monster.
Coleman Trucks where built in Littleton Colorado. I don't think they are made any longer .
That’s like the Oshkosh fun for about five minutes after that not so much.
My calculator comes up with 65 mph lifetime average, which also seems unlikely.
That dif housing looks like a pregnant women's belly--belly button and all!
It would make a nice Diesel tow vehicle...
The truck in Silverton. NOT for sale, thank god, or my boy would be trying to drag it home.
You could carry a CJ in the dump body.
Hahaha I remember begging my dad to let me drag home some rusty truck and tractor from a field.... If he's anything like me just wait until he gets a truck and has access to a trailer. It'll be in the driveway.
Wonder how the turning radius is on that beast. I see the front wheels are further towards the cab.
We Had One of these rigs at the Marina I started out at in 1972. Always started , but my one job was to keep the block heater plugged in and a blanket over the engine in the winter ! Anyway.... It brought back memories, So I'm sharing this quote from Wikipedia.
"The American Coleman was a line of semi trucks built from the 1950s into the 1970s. The company is based in Littleton, Colorado
. This truck in airfield operations, military applications, and for the Coleman Company to deliver their products to distributors. The cab-over design had no fifth wheel, instead the trucks frame locked into position by eight pins. This now made the trailer and tractor one unit. The truck had four single tires (no duals on this rig). The fuel economy was 6.5 mpg. American Coleman semi truck was called the Space Star officially. This cab-over had two sleepers, one located just above the driver and the other was behind the driver. Servicing the engine was simple: just roll it out on its own independent frame, much like a drawer rolls out of a desk. The Space Star ran for few years."
P.S. The article says that this Rig was not made with duallies. Ours had them, so does the one advertised ? Sooo... Wlkipedia is not always correct !
