Two G221 Trailers that need a home

Two G221 Trailers that need a home

Postby Rufus » Sat Jun 02, 2012 1:11 am
These two trailers are located in Mt. Pleasant, Florida. The data plates are missing so I can't tell exactly what model trailers these are. They are for sale by the owner (NOT ME). Sadly, I have been told that they will be sold for scrap by the end of the year if no one buys them. The owner is:

Parramore Surplus Company
11133 Blue Star Highway
Mt. Pleasant, FL 32352

I also noticed this axle. M10 maybe?

They both have the indents on the side for the M45 turret. Looks like they're M17 trailers for the M51 weapons system.

Looks like that axle has hydraulic brakes. Note the hose and metal tubing

I just remembered that these trailers do NOT have axles. They have spindles attached to solid metal balance beams. Da...
