    My town has a few retired oshkosh plow trucks that are collecting rust. I think we have two large v-plows wiht them as well. I was wondering if they are worth more as scrape metal are could somebody use them for parts? I do not have any pics, but they are from the 60's and are orange.

    I am not looking for dollar amounts, but is it worth the time to either sell them or part them out on e-bay or this site. Or just scrap them. Thanks

    Do a search on ebay, those things are still in demand both for work and collecting.

    YES! as they & Walters & FWDs were designed & Built as SNOW Fighters--as We all See them sitting besides Town & the larger Contractors Garages--mostly as You stated--Older models--50s & 60s--& most I know Of?--can & often Will fire UP! & are Useable as they Are!--just in Case? of Geting a Really Big Bad Snow Storm!--& as they Do SIT--their Paint Peels a Bit--& their Tires Go Flat--but--w/ a little Tinkering--they will DO the Plowing they were Desinged for!--as they Plow Heavy Snow--3 ft or Better like its Not There?--I often Stop & look them Over rather than Just Drive BY!--& I still Enjoy the Stories of the Ole Men that Drove Them In Our PAST--& I*M very PROUD to have been ONE of Them!--OleTower--
