I need to identify a couple of vehicles from Latrun.
Let's start with this Contractor prime mover. Can we figure out the model?

I think they're the same type, but it seems the first one is missing the ballast box. These (originally) are tractors, not wreckers.

Thanks. During my visit most info plates were missing and a few were misplaced.
There is ongoing work at the Museum, with multiple vehicles sandblasted and painted on the spot. The "Allies Monument" has been dismantled to leave space for a new building and I have the feeling some vehicles has been shuffled around.
