Thanks for the replies. It looked cool so I thought I'd ask. The one on fleabay is $20k. For $25k, I could have one copied that I could take to bed with me. Not saying it's not worth it, just not to me. I would need a Class A to haul that in my state anyways.
You are right on both points.

There is a reason that the military got rid of these trailers

Has anyone thought of using a M1077 flatrack with this trailer? I have been thinking of ways to add a deck without defeating the original purpose of loading a container. In pictures it looks like it has the same points as a container to mount the front rollers to.

Yes, I have considered it, but the weight kills it for me.
You could weld in more cross members for support and
you could deck it w/ up to 7/16" thickness of whatnot
I do believe. If you want to just drive on and off you
can do this just where the tires hit the floor and not
deck the whole trailer too. I have also considered
some long pieces of Gripstrut or a like material
that you could bolt on and off...

Gents my trailer is parked afar from me currently, can someone tell
me the OD dimensions of the main A-Frame please?

I know it is taller than it is wide, if someone could measure
real quick I will be much appreciative.

Looks like I have a radiator leak. My intel says these motors are sold
by Perkins and others add the radiator of there choice to the APU. There is only ONE
support/bracket at the top from the block, to he radiator. Mine was broken, it definitely is too
small and MUST be addressed gentlemen. If you remove the radiator a heads up,
there are 2 rubber fender type washers at the bottom you need to save
or replac somehow. I call it a 1.25" wide rubber washer that is .25" thick w/ a
.26" hole in the center.

If anyone has any info on the radiator ITSELF I would appreciate a reply.
Please link me to the replacement radiator.


I pulled my radiator and on the bottom there is a sticker that says;

CU1573 108329 0126
MADE IN CANADA
LAVAL


Then another sticker says;

VOID WARRANTY IS NOT FLUSHED AND FILLED WITH NEW ANTIFREEZE/COOLANT AND DISTILLED WATER.

I see some dissimilar metal galvanic type action going on.
The tiny screws that hold the fan shroud to the radiator I think
are steel and should maybe be changed to SS.

Who makes this EXACT radiator?

My bracket from block to radiator is snapped in 1/2 guys...
It is worth a look to make sure yours is ok.

The radiator issue that ALL OF YOU WILL EXPERIENCE is a real challenge.

As I see it, Perkins sells motors and it is up to the builder to supply the
radiator, thus it is not available / obsure. There are some numbers on the radiator
but I have exhausted all resources trying to replace it, and even if I could
I bet ya it would be a $1200.00 radiator. Insane it is...

I believe these aluminum radiators are put together with EPOXY on the tanks
ends were you would expect to see solder, thus it is not repairable unless you
douche it w/ more epoxy. NOT GOOD.

The configuration is basically this;

FILL NECK on PS
INLET & OUTLET on DS
Inlet and outlet are 1"

Mounting is a whole new issue. There are 2- 1/4-20 bolts with rubber isolation
washers on the very bottom. THAT makes finding a replacement impossible.
Gosh I hope one of u guys care and find a resolve.

I looked at the original BOM and all it says is something like POWER UNIT = POWER UNIT

Does anyone know WHO built the APU's / the power packs?

If anyone has anyinfo on these radiators PLEASE give me a heads up yesterday.

I think I have a resolve if I have to buy anew, but there ain't nothin' like stock parts.

I really need some help here guys.

PS, you ALL need to look HARD at your fan belts too!

There is a radiator mfg in Ontario, Canada called Laval. I believe it's a mounting application problem, not a mfg's problem.

Artisan, did you see some more self loading trailers showed up. These showed our military gave over $82K was.
I took mine on a trip to Texarkana and the brackets all broke off the hydraulic tank and a edge cracked open about 4". The bottom almost rubbed through. Couldn't believe it was mounted direct metal to metal. Still a great trailer but I'm sure they never did any long term testing of them. Paul

Paul,

The mission I bought the trailer for is now complete. It will have other missions
in the future. It performed well. I did have a radiator failure as I believe I penned
about herein, and I suffered a broken weld on one of the triangular shaped
chain to container attachment device. The loop that you hook the chain to,
well, one weld BROKE. I was able to save it, got it welded back together.
So other than the initial issues, it has performed well for me. If I were
to sell it I would have to get $30K minimum for it. Looks like these
might work well for moving fracking tanks I am told. ChaCHING!

How high do these things lift? Like, what kind of angle? Looks like maybe about 30-degrees? Wondering if might be able to use as light dump trailer, in addition to hauling containers.
I have never measured the angle but it really gets up there.
In post #2 in this thread you can see an almost fully extended
hoist. I bet ya it is more like 40*

These trailers are AWSOME, the potential is huge on all fronts.
