Hello Mike.
I'm not the winning bidder, but I will be assisting him.
The Mog will head west soon.
Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks MIke.

Working on the pick up as we speak, as imagined, the trailer is a big one :)
Expecting to fly in , time still to be confirmed.

It will remain a recovery/wrecker with minimal changes expected to meet civilian life.

As mentioned in another post, registration as a wrecker in WA is not anticipated, the rules here are a little tight. However it will obtain road registration and will not be hidden away.

Looking forward to cleaning it up and using it.

A few comments on a RAEME facebook page about it, apparently towed from the range with a blown splitter box and subsequently "robbed" of many parts as well.

Yes , very aware of its situation, but a very unique and capable piece of equipment.
