Scammell explorer question.

Recommended Posts

Hi all, on either side passing through the chassis which supports the decking to stand on whilst operating the crane, there are two rods as shown in the picture, one either side. What is their job ?

Looks like the rods that stop the gun planks from sliding out, they've generally got a turn buckle in the end to keep them there

Thanks for the reply. The turn buckle is on the right in the photo.

These "gun planks", are they similar to the planks that are stored above the rear wheels beneath the deck?


The Governor.


Yes, it's the same bit of kit, four carried on the Scammell, two across the body retained by those rods, and one along each side as you describe.
