Talking IH 9670 Trailer Toter "Paint Done"

Well here is a project I started about 8 months ago after seeing a really nice looking IH 9670 Toter at the flying J so I wanted to build one but since I did not have any picks I did not get too far on the build at the time but a rolling frame and a shorten body. Well after tons of Ball Busting by dear old Dad aka Freddy and seeing Izzy's toter and I also started doing some repair work for a local mobile home company this week and got to look over there 4 Fords really close I started into it again. After changing the length of the frame 3 times in one week and MORE Ball Busting by DAD for picks last night and today I got it right I think.

So here is were I ended up late last night..



So now I think I am finally were I need to be to get the look right so I started on the bed of the Toter..


Next the back wall and the locker under the tire rack.



Next the sides out of .80 and the locker door.





Here is a shot of the C Channel I used to make the side stronger.


Another shot of the the back with the tread plate on the bed and a hunk of brass C Channel.


Other side done.


Now the cab is lowered and I also cut down the stock stack and took a stock tank and removed the top step off the tank and mounted them. And in the bed added the 2 lower supports that make the frame stronger for the pogo stick i am going to try to make work. So here is were I finished tonight..




Now I have to do the tank and the stack for the other side tomorrow but let me know what you think...

I agree with Dad!! Sleeper needs to be shorter if not gone completely. I have a place that sells these within 10 minutes of me. I DID have plans to make one out of a King. Now I don't know???? Will wait to see what yours looks like.

Lynn the company here they all run sleepers on them as they haul them all over the mid west and the south. They buy used ones from all over and bring them back to the factory and rework them and then ship them to there different stores for sell. The only ones they don't have sleepers are there Ford T600? I think for short runs. I think you should build one but I have never seen a pete all IH and Fords unless they are twin screws then most of them are Freightshackers.

Stopped at the toter dealer. They had 1 IH, 1 Fruitliner, & 2 Sterlings setting on the lot. None of them had sleepers. No COE's either. All of them seemed a lot shorter than what you are building. All of them had about 11.5' wheelbase and only 1 exhaust stack.

11.5 scale out at around 9 3/4 and I am at 8 1/4 so I am alot shorter than them. Also reason for no sleepers on them is they are short run movers and the reason we see so many COE as toters around he is they can have a sleeper and still stay super short in wheel base.

OK now that we have determined that you know what you are talking about make sure you get two major components on the toter.

The wide rearview mirrors and the 6ft adjustable ball on the back. Remember you are pulling something that is 12 to 16 ft wide.



Great start...........
