Our new IBM System 3 Model 8 - 5408-

We just unloaded our "new" IBM prize.

We were offered this machine along with a Model 10. This one was in front and we could not haul both at the same time, so we took the Mod 8 and the MFCU. Later we found out that the MFCU was not available on the mod 8, so we apparently have a mongrel set here.

There is also no console right now but that is not a necessity. There is a CE diagnostic pack in the removable drive.

It was a challenge to get it out of the truck. These babies weigh several hundred pounds and were loaded with a fork lift. The Genie material handler was a life-saver.
