Also interesting are the tactical sign holders on the front and on the back , which are usually only seen on Australian Army Haflingers see further below. Maybe this vehicle was used as a demonstrator. Linkerhand ein weiterer schöner, originaler Haflinger Bj. Interessant sind die Halterungen für taktische Zeichen, die man sonst nur von Australischen Armeehaflingern kennt siehe weiter unten.

Vielleicht wurde das Fahrzeug als Vorführer benutzt. On this picture, you can see the raised air vent very well. It prevents the engine room from being polluted in dusty areas. Again you can see the Swiss tail light configuration. For some reason, this Haflinger has no rear footwell on the left side, maybe it was removed. Auf diesem Foto sieht man den hochgezogenen Luftschacht sehr gut. Er beugt in staubigen Gebieten gegen Verschmutzung im Motorraum vor. Wieder zu sehen sind die Schweizer Armee Rückleuchten.

Note the hour meter on the right side of the dashboard. This can often be seen on Australian Haflingers. Man beachte den Betriebsstundenzähler rechts vom Armaturenbrett. Dieser war in Australien weit verbreitet. This Haflinger has an original support on the central tube with a double v-belt pulley, which is driven by the PTO. Additional equipment on the cargo area could be driven via a belt through the longish lid just above the pulley.

Thanks Robert Williams for the pictures. Dieser Haflinger hat auch den Nebenantriebsbock mit Riemenscheibe am Zentralrohr. Durch den Deckel in der Ladefläche kann ein Riemen zum Antrieb von Zusatzaggregaten auf der Ladefläche geführt werden. Australian Army Haflinger proved to be an important year in the Australian Haflinger history, as the Australian Army ordered 50 vehicles.

However, I'd still like to show some basic pictures: Typical are the tool holders on the front and the tactical sign holders on the fresh air flaps. Only a few vehicles had this equipment. Typisch sind die Halterungen für Schanzzeug auf der Front und die Halterungen für taktische Zeichen auf den Frischluftklappen.

Die Haflinger sind mit Nebenantrieb ausgestattet, jedoch sind trotzdem zwei Sitze hinten vorhanden. Der Nebenantrieb war dafür gedacht, eine Hydraulikpumpe anzutreiben, mit der man Pontons zum Schwimmen heben und senken konnte. Nur wenige Fahrzeuge hatten diese Ausrüstung. An original Steyr-Puch hitch was standard on these Haflingers. They also came with a raised air vent, but a different type that does not go all the way up to the rear board.

The same design was e. Indicators and rear lights are original on this Haflinger. The white mud guards are not original. Thanks Peter Derges for the pictures.

Man findet wieder den Luftschacht, jedoch eine andere Ausführung, die nur bis zur hinteren Randversteifung reicht so wie bei vielen Kommunalhaflingern. An Australian made trailer makes the set complete. They were also fitted with Haflinger tyres. Ein in Australien gefertigter Anhänger komplettiert das Gespann. Diese Anhänger wurden auch mit Haflinger-Reifen ausgestattet.

Here you see a Series 2 Haflinger that was assebled in Australia. Note the white cabin, which was locally made and used to be the Australian "Polycab". There would also come special doors with it.

The cabin was based on the original roll bar and hood sticks, as you can see further below. Hier abgebildet ist ein Serie 2 Haflinger Bj. Man beachte das Fahrerhaus, das in Australien produziert wurde das "Australische Polyesterhaus".

Es gab auch eigene Türen dafür. Für das Fahrerhaus wurde das originale Planengestänge herangezogen siehe weiter unten. Note the early Series 2 rear light assembly, which was equipped with Carello lights for some reason. You can also see that this Haf has a power take off and no right seat box. Another interesting feature are the tyres: These are Semperit tyres with "diamond tread" on widened 7 inch Haflinger rims, a quite popular option in Australia.

Thanks Gerald Madeley for the photos. Man beachte die frühen Serie 2 Rücklichter mit Carello-Leuchten. Man kann wiederum sehen, dass der Haflinger einen Nebenantrieb und keinen rechten hinteren Sitz hat. Interessant sind auch die Semperit Reifen mit "Diamant-Profil" auf verbreiterten 7 Zoll Haflingerfelgen - eine Option, die man in Australien recht oft sieht. This picture shows a close-up of the Australian made cabin.

You can see well that it was formed around the original Haflinger hoodsticks. Dieses Bild zeigt eine Nahaufnahme des Australischen Fahrerhauses. Man sieht gut, dass es um das originale Planengestänge herum gebaut wurde.

This is the front end that connects with the windscreen frame. You can imagine that the fiberglass wrapped around the hoodsticks is a nest for corrosion Hier das vordere Ende, das am Scheibenrahmen montiert wird.

Die Umhüllung des Gestänges ist leider ein schönes Nest für den Rost Here you see another Haflinger, this one without PTO. Note the roll bar: It is cut off, but you can still see that is is yet the version without mounting points for safety belts. Thanks Gerald Madeley for the picture. Hier ein weiterer Haflinger Bj.

This poor friend will possibly never be on the road again, having sat outside and been neglected for too long. But still there are some interesting things to discover.

Note for example again the popular engine hour meter. On Series 2 Haflingers, they were usually mounted in an additional box in the glovebox to the left of the dashboard. Bei Serie 2 Haflingern war er in der Regel in einer eigenen Aufnahme links vom Armaturenbrett montiert.

Here you see a close-up of the bright tag on the dashboard: A recommendation for lubricants by Anti-Friction Bearings Ltd. Thanks Rick Krassoi for the photo session.

Hier sieht man eine Nahaufnahme des hellen Aufklebers am Armaturenbrett: Eine Empfehlung von A. This picture shows a slightly younger Haflinger from Note the original paint: This beige was very common on Series 2 Haflingers in Australia. Even though many vehicles have been repainted, you will still find this beige somewhere underneath in most cases. Dieses Foto zeigt einen etwas jüngeren Haflinger, Bj. Man beachte den originalen Lack: Das Beige war sehr verbreitet bei Serie 2 Haflingern in Australien.

Obwohl viele Fahrzeuge überlackiert wurden, findet man doch meistens noch das Beige darunter. Another nice and original Haflinger with power take off. Again you find the wide 7" rims. Ein weiterer schöner, originaler Haflinger Bj.

Wiederum sieht man die verbreiteten 7" Felgen. In this case, the hour meter is mounted on the right side of the dashboard again. Bei diesem Haflinger ist der Betriebsstundenzäher wieder rechts vom Armaturenbrett montiert. Here you see a price list from A.

It's always interesting to see how much a Haflinger and all the extras would have cost at that time! Hier eine Preisliste von A. Get in touch Call 13 13 35 or send us an email Prev Prev.
