Does it have a radio or do I have to listen to Briggs practice his throat singing?

These are cool.
Like Doug wrote, there have been about 50 of these up for sale thru the government sales web site. Many of them were in Ft Drum NY and here at Ft Meade in MD. Virtually all of them were unused, but had been stored in the open so were deteriorated.
Not sure I would want to use one as a loader/BH but they are interesting nonetheless

So when they work they are good (not great, but I will circle back on that)-just expect to get to know a lot about maintaining them. Could be a facet of USMC salt water environments and harsh conditions but our combat engineers don't have a high regard for them. Hydraulics in particular were wonky, thus I wouldn't drive it too much on the road since we have had the bucket drop and the truck cartwheel over itself which is not a fun ride.

Seemed like a great concept to do a lot of things but wasn't heavy enough to be truly great at doing anything.

That said at a low price point and assuming you are looking for a wide range of utility for things without having to buy/rent tailor built things this could be a great option. Hopefully yours was babied and if nothing else they look cool.

Good Intel to have thx Ray. I won't know for sure until I see it but it was built in 2005 and had a full overhaul and respray in 2011. With that low miles the thing is like new from all the pics i have seen.

Def not in this condition with under 150 miles on it though!
2000/50 = 40 hours ~ 2.5 days

Did you win the auction? Would be a fun trip. You seem very sure these things only have 150 miles on them, odometers are a very common thing to get swapped, plus I would much rather see an hour meter!

Let me know what you think about it. I was considering getting one, ripping off all the stuff, and keeping it as an around town toy and also to piss off the neighbors.

The average 2 car trailer may still not be enough. Mine is a 14K pound GVWR. Those Mogs are HEAVY, especially with the loader and backhoe on it.

Heck, I could be talked into a road trip, or at least relay to somebody else up the road. But with the bucket anms on it would it be doable? Is there room on the back to store and secure the bucket and arm assy?

Er in doors has giving a sort of ok on it.

Can this be legal on the road???

I've been looking at these for years, the main reason I've backed off is they aren't great trucks and they aren't great tractors. I had considered buying one anyway with the hydraulic chainsaw and building a custom firewood plant... but some new daydreams have come up since.
