M796 4 ton Military Bolster Trailer
This is an x-military M796 4 ton Bolster Trailer. The trailer was used by the military primarily for hauling long pipe, telephone poles, long boats, they even used them to build shelters on them for the men to live in during field operations.
Many people who contact me about these trailers talk about putting a deuce cargo bed on them. I think a cargo bed with dump is a great idea. The trailer definitely has the payload to handle such ideas. The possibilities for this trailer are endless and limited only by your imagination.
The trailer has a telescoping tongue that extends the length of the trailer by 5 feet. Cargo is kept from rolling off the sides via 4 stanchions that can be fully adjusted to any position on any bolster on the trailer. When not in use, the stanchions can be removed and stowed away on the trailer out of sight and out of the way (see pics).
The unit is new. Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions.
This trailer CANNOT be exported. Sales are to US citizens only residing in the USA. The federal government requires records to be kept of the sales/ownership of these units.
