West Barnstable recently took delivery of a 1998 military
LMTV 4x4 for Forestry 288.  The truck will carry 500 gals
and has a small forestry pump.  The truck is still painted
military green but is expected to ultimately be painted red.
Sept 2017

The status of the 1967 International Military 6x6
Brush Breaker 295 is still unknown.  Originally the
truck was being repowered with a diesel engine
and having an automatic transmission installed as well
as other work.  The project which began a number of
years ago seems to have stalled and the return of the
brush breaker is doubtful at this point.
