M1070 Oshkosh Tractor Unit

UK registered tank transporter.
M1070 Oshkosh, all wheel drive, off road heavy haulage tractor unit. V8 500hp 92TA Detroit engine, Allison auto transmission, Rockwell hub reduction axles and an Oshkosh two speed transfer case. 105 tonne gross combination weight (GCW) Tridem rear axles all on air, front is leaf. 3.5 inch fifth wheel with a 20.4 tonne imposed load on fifth wheel gives axle weights of 10 tonnes per axle. 5th wheel has been moved back so it can tow an ordinary civilian low loader trailer with the use of a 5th wheel pin adapter that is included in the sale. It has two hydraulic 25 ton DP winches and one 2 ton auxiliary winch for paying out the inch cable fitted to the 25 ton winches. The first and last axles are steered. It is fitted with 1600x20 XZL Michelin tyres. It has a full central tyre inflation system. This is a 1994 manufacture with a full Oshkosh rebuild in 2004, which includes all the manufacturers upgrades, i.e. lights (LED), instruments. It has done 6475 miles since rebuild. It seats two in the front and four across the bench seat comfortably with full seatbelts. The rear seats fold into bunk beds. When I went to the USA to buy this vehicle, I had the choice of four to choose from. It was -6 Celsius and this one was the only one that started quickly with no assistance. All oil and fluids have been checked and a full grease up completed. The multigrade oil that the US military use has been drained from the engine and Detroit approved 40 weight oil added. Everything works, all gauges, all lights etc. The headlamps have been changed for right hand drive.
I imported this and registered it last year from the USA before the October 2014 type approval changes for heavy haulage and recovery came into force.
So now if you import one or you by one unregistered it needs to go through type approval.
£50,000 - may be open to part-ex.
