Two photos. One is an early 40s Walter F taken today on NY5 west of Fonda. The other is a second photo of a Town of Smithtown 1948 FWD with a Klauer Snogo taken in 1982. A post 2000 photo of the Snogo is on the Hankstruckpictures website.

Does anyone know if International is still making single axle Paystars this year? All I'm seeing is tandems +.

We have to keep this thread going!

NYSTA trucks are some of my favorites. I took these at the Batavia shed Easter weekend:

Double wing Workstar




S-Series

A couple Workstars, one right-side wing (has the new style strobe light) and one left-side


Note the Buffalo Sabres flag in the rear window.



I really like the way NYSTA has the spreaders set up with the spoilers and directional arrows.

Finally, a Sterling



I was a little bummed that I missed one. There was a Sterling set up for liquid de-icing at the Batavia shed in the past, but it wasn't there on the day I visited.

Can anyone tell me who makes the directional arrow panels on the NYSTA trucks? It looks like "D.E.C.", but a google search is turning up nothing.

What does the spoiler do on the thruway rigs? Its not like they need down pressure with all that salt in the back...

The spoiler catches air forces it down to get the salt being spread to hit the ground faster so it doesn't hit cars that are following behind the truck as much.

A while ago somebody asked if Suffolk County (NY) had any FWDs. Here are two photos of an FWD RB I took in the late 80s in Yaphank. I remember reading the public notice for bidding; it said that the trade-ins were Oshkoshes or Walters. I can't remember.

Bones 357, excellent shots. I took the Batavia exit on Friday around 5PM and did not notice an IH SF2500. Plowchaser, thanks! I took a shot of that Walter a couple of years ago, but I could not find it last week. My recall is that the truck was oriented 90 degrees to the south then. The truck has Town of Mohawk lettering on door. After dropping kids off at colleges my wife wanted to stop by Fonda, so I took another few photos.

Plow Chaser: Thanks for the photos. I have not been out west except Washington and norther California. The dump bodies seem to be mounted a few inches closer to the tires than what I see here.

One of my favorites. A 1958 FWD 285. Had a Good Roads one-way plow and a Frink HD-42 tailgate spreader. Looked like a beast, but had a GVW of only 28,000 lb. 10.00x20 tires. 5-7yard dump. The snow tires and 8-spoke wheels made it look tough. In the last years, the highway department used it in the Summer for dust control on reconstruction projects. Hence, the tank.

An older photo (1975) of the last FWD I posted. It shows the original fenders.

You got it! I think that I saw the other one too.

I passed two trucks from Perry coming out of the sand pit, but I couldn't get a decent shot.
