The M816 Medium Wrecker is part of the M809 series of 5-ton 6x6 military trucks. It was made by AM General starting in 1970. It has a revolving hydraulic crane with an extending boom that can extend from 10–18 ft with a maximum lift capacity of 20. 00 lb with outriggers and boom jacks to the ground. The boom capacity depends on boom extension and placements of truck outriggers and boom jacks. With boom full out and no outriggers. the capacity is only 3000 lb. The boom elevates to 45 degrees. swings 270.  The towing capacity is 14 tons on road or 10 tons cross country (or off road). The front winch has a 20Klb capacity and the rear winch is 45klb capacity.
the NHC250 855 CU. In. . naturally aspirated. inline 6 diesel driving through a manual 5 speed transmission and two speed transfer.  Front axle is actuated by the transmission shifter in low and reverse gears to provide all-wheel 6x6 traction.   
Rear winch and crane hydraulics are controllable from the rear deck of the wrecker by manipulation of a power divider. throttle and remote clutch control set.

The following is a partial list of additional items included in the sale:1.  Mud pushers2.  Whiffletree3.  Snatch Blocks4.  Tow Bars and Feet5.  Boom jack poles and plates6.  Gondola frame and Canvas7.  NEW replacement inner windshield frames and glass8.  Block Heater9.  Oxygen Bottle10. Acetylene Bottle11. Convoy lights12. Red front flashing light.
This vehicle is unmodified and remains fully operational as it came from the Army in Indianapolis. Indiana.  New batteries were installed at purchase and are due for replacement in the next couple of years.  I replaced the complete front axle assembly when the bendix joint broke and took the knuckle housing with it. The wrecker has been a real asset to the motor pool and. though lumbering and slow. is fun to drive and a great working. driving and stopping beast.  A real eye opener and showpiece.  
Having just had two hips replaced and two shoulder repairs and spinework in the offing. I find it necessary to part with this and my M813A1 dropside cargo.  My loss is your gain.    I wish you all the best in your bidding on this gem.    
Specific photos will be provided on request. Send questions before bidding. please.  Kindly do your research online before asking questions you could have answered yourself.
