I did not really think of a 1976 as being an old truck until I started reading through the other members trucks articles; I thought I would share a few of the pictures of my U 900 I owned a few...maybe 10...or more years back. 
This truck was imported by Case in 1976 as a tractor.
I had a 10 ft viking snow blade and a 8 ft blower, at that time I lived back in Rawlins County KS, I had access to old batteries and would put about 1800 pounds of GNB batteries in the back for ballast.
This truck has a pto in the front, and in the rear, the rear winch was rated in metric and do not remember for sure what it was rated at but it was really stout.  The three point hitch on the back makes it more like a tractor.
The bed has a hydraulic ram under it and can be dumped to the rear or to ether side by removing pins, the ram was in the center so it really does not care how it tips.
anyway here are some pictures, I have some old videos of how to operate this odd ball truck also I will try and get them posted also.

We have a 1969 421 Unimog in the family.   They are certainly a multi-tool.  This one has a small front loader bucket, 2 PTOs, dump bed, and three point hitch.

Ozzie Sweet staged a photo of it that later was used in a NAPA calendar.  Here is a cropped version of the pic.http://forums.justoldtrucks.com/uploads/images/b0aa9b47-3cd3-43fb-9f8b-1ad6.jpg
