I've been using RN110 Nodwells for moose hunting for a number of years. I'm now looking to move to a smaller version, the Nodwell 60 so I can haul them with a smaller truck. They're also easier to work on. These are also known as Flextrac F60s or Canadaair Flextrac CF 60s. They're all basically the same, just depending on who had ownership of the company and the year they were made.
As to be expected they've been updated over the years. They've come with a variety of engines: Ford straight 6s, Ford 391 V8s, Gimmy or Detroit Diesel 353 and 453s and I'm sure there's a few other engines. I would prefer to have the 391 Ford Industrial V8. I'm getting tired of listening to the 453 in my 110. It's a 13 hour trip in and out of our hunting area.
The suspensions have either coil springs wrapped around the axles or they have walking beam suspensions. I much prefer the walking beam suspension - no springs to break and change.........
On the rear ends there were at least two of them. I want the T16 rear end. Hydrostatic drive is available on the newer ones, but those are far out of my price range.
For tracks, most of them have D-dent cleats which I'd prefer. A few of them have the flat or tundra cleats which I would accept.
As for the cab, there are lots of versions. I don't really want the 5 - 6 man cab, but I'd take one. There's the standard two man cab that I'd take. What I'd prefer is what they call a 3-man cab. This is sort of like a pick-up truck club cab meaning there's room behind the driver's seat. On the passenger side, the main seat is back against the back wall AND, there is sort of jump seat mounted down below the passenger's front windshield that folds either down or up. This gives you a slightly more roomy cab and you can haul three people if needed.
On the transmission, there are some Allison transmissions behind the Gimmy engines. Preference is the five speed behind the 391.
Let me know if you know of any for sale.
