The OSHKOSH



 
 

The Truck of Trucks
What all other Trucks want to grow up to be
A REAL CLASSY TRUCK IN A CLASS
BY ITSELF

 
 

 
 

 
 
This is from one of my vistors. I thought it was worth sharing.

"My Dad grew up in Wisconsin and always said that Oshkosh Trucks were so tough, even
way back then, he was born in 1930, passed away in 1999. He used to say they could out perform
most others in the adverse (SNOW) conditions of Wisconsin and if you saw one they would 
always say " My Gosh It Must Be An Oshkosh!"

Ohskosh Parts Needed
The owner of this truck is in need of some parts for it. At this time he is looking for a coil/s He had the following to say about it.
"These photos are of a 1951 or 1952 Oshkosh truck configured to blow snow. 
I believe it's a 1951 model (nameplate does not say which).
The odd finned item in the one photo is a coil from that era.  From tip to tip it's about 7.5 inches long (19.05 cm long). 
*** I am looking for parts. *** 
Electrical parts seem to be the big need at the moment.  In particular coils (the picture shows one coil). 
It takes two 12v Auto-Lite  CP 4001 or GP 4001 coils.  I cannot tell if it shows CP or GP.  It also has the letter "B" stamped o it under the other info.
I am also interested in anyone who would know how to upgrade the ignition system so parts would be easier to find. 
Also interested in anyone that has or knows of another motor being installed in the 
front (driving the truck).
Appreciate any and all leads. 
I've already contacted Oshkosh and it was basically a dead end since the truck is so 
old. Although, I will take any names there as well.  Never hurts to follow-up.
I also contacted a couple of companies that claim to carry discontinued parts for the Hercules Engine, but they were also of little help. Again, I will take any leads one can think of there as well. 
Truck Model# W-700-15 
Front Engine Model# Hercules 900-H-6, RXCO
Snow Blower Model#  Sno Go TU-3
Rear Engine (drives blower) Model#  Scania Diesel DS11R40A  (I believe it originally had two Herc 900 engines in it originally)"

Thanks in advance,

There are companies that feel that the older Oshkosh trucks will 
perform a job better then anything on the market today.
One of these companies is Guaranteed Motor Services Towing 
of New Brunswick, New Jersey. 
Some of their trucks are shown below but because of the number of Oshkosh
trucks they have I decided to show them as the feature trucks of this page.

 1949 W706 originally sold to Winnebago County as a plow truck . 
Although originally powered by a gas engine it's Cummins was installed at some 
point. It was truly amazing as to how much snow this vehicle could push. 
It was the Truck of Trucks. In the summer larger tires were swapped on and it was 
used to haul fire wood.
Eventually it proved to be excessive for my short driveway and it found a happy home with a new owner with a much longer driveway (over 1/2 mile long if I remember correctly).

1954-59 Oshkosh W-825 with a snow plow
This truck is owned by David Tarsi. He has the following to say about his truck.
" I live in the western part of the upper peninsula of Michigan near Watersmeet MI.  I live off-grid 
and keep my home open in the winter, a 6 mile plow one-way.  I own a 1954-1959 Oshkosh plowing truck model W-825.  A Picture is attached.  I love it!  It really makes plowing a lot easier than my 
Chev truck with a boss V-plow.  Since I owned this I never had to winch my Chevy out of the ditch! 
Just a walk back to the Oshkosh.

1960 Oshkosh with a Q 40 Silent Hoist Crane
Silent Hoist Cranes were built in Brooklyn, New York.  The Q 40 crane had a 20 ton rating. The company, Guaranteed Motors Towing, New Brunswick, New Jersey who was also an Oshkosh dealer for may years installed a new style cab on that chassis.  They ran it for many years and then sold it to Highpoint Garage in Union City New Jersey. They ran it for many years and then sold it to Nelcon Service Center In North Haven, Ct where it remains today.

Garage Find


Brad Pearson, Adams Wis.  submitted the folowing pictures of a 1948 Oshkosh WT2206
that he found in a garage in Baldwin Wis. His problem now is to get it home.  Since it is no longer  a county truck, ya just can't haul a 12ft. wide plow down the road.
