Looking at the name on the trailer I know they'll figure a way to get out of it.

That sounds right - I was thinking of the R models.

I found the old newspaper article about this load. The log weighed 30 tons, it was 26 feet long and 30 feet around.
Yielded 17,550 feet of timber (mainly used for ship building).
The load took about five hours to cover the 30 miles. I'm sure a 269 would have pulled it downhill.

kiwi l model hookin in, that log is hardwood approx. 40 tonImage may contain: one or more people and outdoor

I believe the old girl was an LF 174 - and they needed a dozer to pull her out of the skids. Loaded just right....
The jinker axles look like they're robbed off an old CCKW. Must have creaked a little.
The log is a kauri (pine family) and yielded around 20 thousand BF of lumber. Up near Ahuroa.
Engine's probably a 372 or 406. They weren't real big down there for some reason.
I have a couple more pictures of the festivities here somewhere.


LF 174 only had Super Blue Diamond 269-improved KB7 motor.
