Walter JuniorThis is a featured page

Tom Albrecht and I traveled to Ellicottville, NY To check out a Walter Jr. These trucks were made in the early seventies and were a scaled down version of the big snowfighters. Peculiar to this model was the use of a conventional Rockwell four wheel driveline rather than the Walter style Bevel drives. We suspected that this was a Jr model when we learned it had 20" tires. The truck was powered by a 180 Cummins that started well and sounded very strong. It has a five speed (Spicer?) transmission with a conventional looking transfer case. I did not look to see if it was a two speed transfer case. The differential ratio was up above seven, not lending to very high travel speeds. This truck desperately needs a new cab to make it restorable. It would be a nice example of a fairly rare model Walter if restored. Once again, the fellow wants to sell it to a collector rather than send it to the scrap dealer. The high price of scrap puts the asking price at a prohibitively high mark. Contact me if you want to contact the seller.

I have to wonder if it was repowered or axles replaced at some point? Being a complete novice on Walter of course, but the dump box looks borrowed off someothing else as well as wheels? Does this still exist?

Grew up down the street from the Linn tractor plant, where many relatives and neighbors once worked, and next door to a Linn/Frink Sno-plow/Walter truck agency. I do free look ups of serial numbers, photographic recognition and advise on any Linn related questions you might have, and generally like to locate/excavate/photograph/identify old iron for fun.
