Found this on Google earth

Postby StuartB58 » Thu Oct 12, 2017 10:01 pm

Whilst checking out an address in Sunderland I saw a MK1 recovery truck which looks as if it's a 6 wheeler!!! Don't know the age of the image or if it's still in use.

Ford where rust is NOT an option.

As in 6 wheeler do you mean 3 axles? If that is what you meant then to me this looks like an ordinary twin wheeler with a towing dolly attached!

I'm not sure if it's a towing dolly or a lift axle as it looks to be the same transit wheels on it and I always thought you used smaller wheels on a dolly!! Don't know lol

I didn't know how to get the date of the google image, not something I use. :(
