u900, 406 rolling project for sale
« on: August 22, 2016, 03:58:43 pm »
Well the time has come for me to let my first 406 to go to a new home.

Details :

1982, U900, 406 ex snow blower from the Scottish Highland council. Originally bought through Atkinson vos

Milage :13500km from new
Hours: 1070hrs from new
Cascade gear box (so has splitter)
540/1000rpm gearbox
rear linkage (banana box not included, neither is the chipper!)

Atkinson vos replaced the brake pipes when I bought her
I've replaced :
clutch master cylinder
water pump
Rebuilt the pto shafts
cab was re welded about 5yr ago but does need some more doing.

She drives well, with a tight gear box, light steering and spacious cab.

I was planning to turn her into a full blown agricultural mog but she always went out working so I didn't get time to fix her up. I do have a spider frame that I'll sell separate, which includes the bushes. I have head lights that can go with her.

Bad bits:

she needs some welding to the cab but not a lot.
wants doors welding as the bottoms have rotted
wants a respray
Wants a new ignition barrel/a battery isolation key
Head lights putting in
 
I'm looking for 7000 ono

I'll be sad to see her go, she's been a good work horse for me but it's time for someone else to take her on ☺

Cheers casto

Yes can send more pics. Anything in particular u want pics of? Yes, original snow blower cab from the schmidt factory but can be converted to a rag top if you wanted. She's agricultural registered and does 40/45mph with the wind behind her.

Some more off interior if possible never seen that cab in person! Undercarrige as well. Has she got hydrolics? I presume its a tipper?

I'll try and get some tomorrow more pics tomorrow. The top of the cab can be taken off and replaced to make her into a rag top if you wanted (just needs the windscreen wiper motors mounting into the engine bay like a standard mog) the chassis is solid but would benefit from a rub down and painting. Yes she's got hydraulics but only piped for the linkage at the moment. She doesn't have a tipping body, never got round to fitting it as I chipped into the landrover but wouldn't take much to fit one
