To be honest - I'd be quite happy to have a go at the off road trials but the Ward La France was never meant to be on off road wrecker.

 

It can handle off road as it has decent ground clearance and selectable 6 wheel drive.

 

Certainly not as good as a Scammell but then again -

 

I just LOVE my powered crane. LOL

This little gimmick appeared at Duxford about 12 years ago or maybe even further back, looks like one of those Mobo pedal jeeps in the air

The off road course is pretty easy unless you don't try any of the silly holes. No problem for any vehicle really.

Museum wasn't finished and we were not allowed to take photos when we went.

 

Are you sure it was an M746, they do have an M911 with M747 trailer which I saw a couple of years ago. The M911 is later and far greater production numbers. Only 193 M746's were ever built. USA 125 and Morocco 68. 75 of the USA ones were "sold" to Turkey mid 90's.

It was definitely one of the WLFs. The M911 is a very different beast: conventional for a start. I doubt an M911 would have fitted under the door lintel as they are huge!

This ex Swiss Army one was at the E. Mids Evesham event, still petrol powered, the vertical pipe is raised air intake to overcome fuel vapourising problems
