I was recently at Tarrent Manufacturing, builders of the "Snowfighter" on the Stainless Dump??? thread, and they've come out with another model of their stainless steel combination dump/sander body. Below is a photo of their demo model on a new International chassis, ready to be equipped with plow & wing.

I stopped in there on a family vacation 3 years ago. We saw the plant there on the way to Canada from Lake George and we stopped in. This was at the time when they first were building the snowfighter package. The original demo truck they built was with a 6spd. I have some photos of it somewhere.

Pretty interesting site, i didn't get to look around the yard too much though.

The conveyor runs down the driver's side of the floor and feeds the mix to the front, where it drops to the spinner you see ahead of the wheels. When the load starts to get low, the passenger side of the material box tips up to feed more material to the conveyor.

I'm not familiar with IH's new numbering system yet, I don't know which series it is, but I do know it's 4x2.

I was up there to deliver my 550 to be fitted as the "Snowfighter" listed in the Stainless steel dump??? thread. It's due to be completed this upcoming week. I'll post a review when I get it back.

Pelican,

I was just curious about the series because that IH has a different hood (2 inspection covers) on it then our 4300. I'll have to ask next time I'm at the dealer.

You are going to post some pics when you get your 550 back aren't you?

The "hood inspection covers" are called butterflies. Becuase most plow trucks that are upfitted with a highway type plow, they have a heavy duty head gear that stays on most of the winter. The butterflies allow the driver to inspect the truck with out tilting the hood. When the head gear is installed the hood can't be tilted. Almost every dot or town truck with a plow and wing would have butterflys.
