    Question: how universal is the front loader mount plate, as in, is it a one-off mount, useful only for the Schmidt FL-4? Can anyone confirm it's versatility? How about versatility of the rear mount point? Thanks for any intel here.

    Are you talking about the pallet forks on the front and the crane on the back?

    That's the HMMH (High Mobility Material Handler). Back in the 90's I was in a unit that had two of the HMMH's. We did not find it effective and they spent more time in maintenance than they were worth. Our attempts to move air conditioning units were not that successful. The crane took too long and the front end sagged and we had to counterweight the back using the crane. We had two M4Ks and they were used significantly more to the point the HMMH's became motorpool queens.

    Intent of the HMMH was to have a forklift/light material crane capability with a speed enabling it to keep up with a road convoy so it wouldn't have to be hauled. In Desert Storm, my unit did a long range cross country test of various support equipment like various forklifts (but no HMMH). It didn't go so great. The darn forks on the M4K and extended reach lifts and 10K forklifts bouncing up and down for 100 miles.

    At one point I suggested they take the extra HMMWV's floating around, and cutting them in half, articulating them, and mounting a 4K fork capability to them. Intent would be having a vehicle with the speed capability to 'keep up' and yet be a forklift. Never went anywhere, the US govt can't repurpose anything unlike the Israelis or WWII Germans. Heaven forbid if they were to do an ad hoc vehicle like the Kangaroo or JagdPanzer I.

    Wow, interesting info on the even rarer HMMH, thanks. Unfortunately I was asking about the attatch points for the Small Emplacement Excavator. I'll keep your insight in mind when the day comes that I actually see one.
