Leyland Bison

Oh how I liked this lorry, out of almost 30 people I was the only one that did. One driver could not drive it couldn't get it out of second. The tacho was marked for gear changing flat out in each gear.

Ed.: registration 37AJ23

Hi Andrew,
First thing I noticed was the position of the exhaust. Why not upwards?
Do you know when this photo was taken?

No Marcel, but being a fuel Bowser maybe it was thought down for safety. This Bison was one of many that went through the re-furbishment programe
and as you can see fitted with new cabs, they were a joy to drive but a tad noisy to operate on refuelling.

this is'nt a leyland bison its a constructer 6 all exhausts for fuel tankers are forward and down.

It's a Leyland Bison, one of a batch that were refurbished by the MOD. Fitted with TL engine and crash box.

Added by Andrew Wright on 19 March 2012.
Yes it is a re-cabbed Bison, with a "spark arrestor" exhaust as per all a/c refuellers.
Orrid to work on - but still more reliable than the S26 that replaced it !

Orrid to use, oh no I loved this lorry, pipe was hard to pull out with PTO engaged otherwise no complaints.
