The 5-ton. 6x6. M809 series trucks are tactical vehicles designed for use over alltypes of roads. highways. and cross-country terrain. M809 series vehicles ford hardbottomwater crossings up to 30 inches (76. 2 centimeters) without a deepwater fordingkit. and 78 inches (198. 1 centimeters) with the kit. A five-speed manual transmission anda two-speed transfer provide 10 overall speed ranges. All are equipped with a rear towingpintle hook.  Two front shackles and a pin on top of the rear springs provide a readymeans of lifting the trucks for transportation.  The M809 Series 5-ton 6x6 truck G908 was a family of heavy tactical trucks built for the United States Armed Forces. The basic cargo version was designed to transport a 5-ton (4. 00 kg). 14 ft (4. 3 m) long load over all terrain in all weather. In on-road service the load weight was doubled. Built by AM General. the M813 was the standard cargo version of the series. It had a 14 ft (4. 3 m) long low sided box with a bottom hinged tailgate. This M813A1 is a dropside truck with side racks. troop seats. overhead bows (steel on this vehicle) and a camouflage heavy tarpaulin. An additional Extra Long wheel base tarpaulin is included in this sale. A front-mounted winch was optional and is installed on this truck. The winch is operable but requires replacement of the 200" x 5/8" cable and terminations.  The original was too badly mangled and kinked to be used safely and was removed.  

The standard body sides could secure a load but could not be loaded from the side by forklifts. so a body with drop sides was standardized as the M813A1.

The 813A1 is powered by the Cummins NHC 250 855 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.

Having just had two hips replaced and two shoulder repairs and spine work in the offing. I find it necessary to part with this and my M816 medium wrecker.  My loss is your gain.    I wish you all the best in your bidding on this gem.
