Ha Ha, That is a "Brush Breaker" they are pretty exclusive to Southeastern and Cape cod Mass. We drive them through the wood's for forest fire's. Lot's of town's buy them brand new built on all wheel drive chassis but our town is poor so we got an excess property Duece and a half,  then Had a certain Cranberry farmer and his brothers build it from scratch. They are built and skid plated to drive over trees. I have a link here for you. I have a second one in the works for our other station right now.

No way would NYS ever allow that machine to be in a barn....We get lucky sometimes and the rangers will transport you in.
We left two rangers on a 500 acre parcel that was burning with homes all around it. We had our 6 wheelers going and guys brought their own personal
wheelers to transport help and water. The forest rangers told us we had to get the machines out of there. One company had their old Dodge power wagon.
It carries 500 gallons of water. But the forest rangers could use their 6 wheelers to get into the fire... We all just started packing up and leaving. The poor rangers were dumbfounded. Saying we couldn't leave them there.
We said yup we can, it's state land. We are only responsible for the homes. We'll go watch them to keep them from burning.....They told us the machines could stay.
Nice rig Harrie!! You guys do some great work with metal and tubing!!
Oh and I have a 2000 Dodge Dakota sport and a 1991 Jeep Wrangler...

That's an awesome truck.  Being a welder I appreciate the hard work put into something like that.
