Yes I do remember speaking to you a few years ago and man the time has flown off the shelve lately to think it has been over two years, but yes it was Kevin's truck, and after he passed we got this machine ready in his name for the show that we went to that year, and it was a hit, so many people came around it and was just amazed to seeing this machine, and that Cummings engine that they only did one of is totally amazing to me, just a neat part of the history of the ten ton. But you take care and if you ever need anything from us here do not feel afraid to letting us know if you need help when it comes to the 10-ton side of things. Many blessings to you...

Yes sir I know all about a complete frame up restoration, here are just a few pic's of my first M125 that I went through. I was unable to complete the restoration due to the property being sold and the rent going up 3x. You can see the whole thread on Steel Soldiers, I do wish I had that shop today to give this Cummins powered M125 the same attention!!

Those images are amazing and thanks for sharing them, and it brings back many memories to our restorations here that is for sure. And that is a very nice shop you had and you need the room for working on these big machines for sure, and we managed in our little shop to getting 2 of the 10-tons done and nothing better than that feeling let me tell you and you already know this as well.

Quite an impressive machine. It looks to be in surprisingly good original condition too. Good luck on your build and I look forward to seeing your progress.
