Another odd-ball M762 variant?

Postby Bill, Idaho » March 4th, 2016, 10:28 pm

The thread about the M4216 with the tailgate being an actual variant got me to thinking. (I have seen a few in my neck-of-the-woods within the last handful of years.)

Years ago I saw a M762 variant that I have never seen since, and probably should have bought it on the spot way back when. It appeared to be an M762, with some type of antenna tower added. It had outriggers on all four corners. with a telescoping tower that tilted from horizontal to vertical. On top was an AB15 I think. As I recall , there was a crank system that lifted the tower.
I have heard there were tower trailers made from the M116 (or whatever the next bigger trailer was), and my good friend Alex (at Idaho Motor Pool) told me he has seen a few over the years.

Anyone see anything like that, maybe pictures?

From my failing memory----
that looks a lot like the one I remember ( again, the one I was talking about was a radio antenna tower affair, but still, that looks real close.
