Military trailer specifications

The following is a comparison of military trailer specifications:


Sources of this information are TM-10-1281 (MBT & T-3), TM 9-2330-201-14 (M100), TM 9-2330-251-14&P (M416, M416A1) and a random website selling the M101 CDN.

I have these manuals in PDF format. If you need them, send me a PM with your email address. BEWARE...The file sizes are 3.3MB for TM-10-1281, 10MB for TM 9-2330-201-14 and 4MB for TM 9-2330-251-14&P

I hope they are right, because that is the source I used. The differences between the US M416 and the Canadian M101 are interesting. I wonder if the differences in max weight are due to very conservative limitations on the M416 by US forces.

Re: Military trailer specifications

I found it interesting too - not too concerned with what the spec sheet says anyway, doubt I'd want any more than about 700/800 pounds in either one ;0)

Re: Military trailer specifications

Curious on a few measurements-

Using the M100 as an example because it most closely resembles my measurements and it has the measurements I need, I'm curious on a few things...

With the tongue measurement at 27", and the axle measurement at 13.5" which I'm assuming is the lowest point on the axle, what is your frame, or box height measured from the ground up?

Thanks in advance,

Best of Luck,

Mike

Re: Military trailer specifications

The overall height of the M100 (with stock tires) is 42 inches. The inside height of the tub is 18 inches, which would mean the bottom of the tub and top of the frame would be 24 inches off the ground. The drawbar height measurement of 27 inches is to the top of the drawbar. The diameter of the drawbar is about 1 3/4 inches. The bottom of the drawbar looks to me to be about even with the frame, so there might be one inch in play here. The frame is about 3 inches high, so the bottom of the frame should be about 21 inches off the ground (again with stock 7:00 x 16 tires).

Re: Military trailer specifications

Canada uses a different system, they have 2 weights, on and off road. Offroad is 1/2 of on road (I spent 15 years in the canadian Infantry). For example the 2.5 ton truck had a load of 5 tons on road and 2 1/2 tons offroad. The confusion is newer vehicles use metric tons (1000kg/2200 lbs and not 2000 lbs).

Here is what I found


Description

Canadian M101CDN2, 1/4 ton trailer
Updated "Jeep Trailer" by the Canadian Forces. Also in the lineage of 1/4 ton trailers are its' predessors the BT3 & MBT (WW2), M100 (Korean War era) and the Bantam civilian T3C & Spen trailer (both post WW2 into early 1950's). Some countries also made similar trailers after WW2. Newer contemporary civilian clones are available.

General Specs-
Date of Mfg: 1992
Production Qty: approx 1973
Overall Length: 114"
Overall Width: 60"
Height: 42"
Box Length: 72" inside
Box Width (top): 46" inside
Box Width (bot): 38" inside
Ground Clearance: 13"
Lunette Height: -Upper: 23.5" -Lower: 18.5"
Weight: 775#
Payload: 500#
Axle: tubular, solid spindle 3,500#
Mechanical Parking Brake, Hand Lever

04 Patriot Blue TJ Rubi - 6" Airock, RELA, 4.88, 37s...
06 Black LJ Rubi - 4" Airock, 35s and my DD
06 Red LJ Rubi - 35s, LA and lots of offroady stuff

Re: Military trailer specifications

Elwarpo, I did not see both on and offroad weights for the CDN. The lower offroad payload makes sense and makes it comparable with US military trailers. It looks like all the other specs you listedf are the are the same as what I had on the table. Please let me know if that is not correct. I will look through my sources to verify the 750 lb payload and will correct the table. If I can find enough information on production numbers I will add those to the table also.

If anyone is interested in a similar comparison of popular civilian offroad trailers let me know offline. If there is enough interest I will put one together.

Re: Military trailer specifications

Some canadian trailers were also manufactured by DEW Engineering. They are in Ontario and New Brunswick I believe
