    I'm not a commercial snow plow operator just have a passion for Walter, FDW, and Oshkosh rigs and a few years ago my dad and I bought a 1961 Walter model ACUS Snowfighter with plans on restoring it. It has 24 1400 tires a supercharged cummins 6 speed and 2 reverse and a lot of rust hopefully over the next few years we'll get it back close or better then when she rolled off the floor.

    Don't laugh but that camper top can save you a lot of money when it comes to tags. In Oregon, if you say you use it for camping you can register it as a RV. A lot of guys with old duece and halfs do the same thing

    Nice. I'd love to go camping with that. Well, maybe I wouldn't love the drive there but it''d be fun tolling around once you got where you're going!

    Do you know the history of the truck?
