It is a beast. I do not know which engine came in it but the power company put a 345 in it somewhere along the line and it suits it just fine. It was a dually but the wheels were starting to scare me so I had new ones made that are the single wheel style, with 37x12.50x17 load range E super swampers that work extremely well in the snow . It has a gin pole which I do not use it but have it. The running gear on it is massive for a 140 series with a 13 inch ring gear in both axles and of course a divorced transfer case which is also quite large. Gear ratio is 6.17:1 and when in low range it really creeps. I think trucks like this were special ordered for the application including a very large generator driven by 2 belts, a massive enclosure for the cooling shroud which is likely for low speed or stationary operation. I guess you can probably tell I still like the truck.
