Photo from Tech Intel Volume 1


This large wheeled vehicle served as a heavy prime mover. The wheels were cleated metal 4' 10" in diameter. Cleats on the wheels suggest that the vehicle was designed for use in the mud. Spikes were included for operations in ice. A winch was located under the bed of the truck.

The vehicle weighed some 7.5 tons and was powered by an in-line four cylinder, air cooled , gasoline engine. The transmission drove all four wheels with five forward gears and one reverse gear. A two- cylinder starter motor was also included.
