My Military Collection
"Some people live an entire life and wonder if they have made a difference in the world. A veteran doesn’t have that problem.” – Ronald Reagan
This has been my all original like new collection. Thought I'd share it with others that enjoy military equipment like I do. The M1070/M1000 is not available. But other pieces may be.
See bottom of this page for Spec Sheet PDF files on both the:
M1070 8x8 Tractor https://www.oshkoshequipment.com/products/spec/M1070%20Spec%20Sheet.pdf
M1000 70 ton Trailer https://www.leonardodrs.com/media/1997/m1000_datasheet.pdf
Click links in sidebar for pictures of exterior, interior, and different ways I've seen M1070s used in their 2nd life. M1070 8x8 & M1000 40 wheel Heavy Equipment Transporter System (HETS) Military Heavy Haul.
Government paid $256,704 for this monster of an 8x8, and paid $229,219 for the M1000 matching trailer. That's $485,923 that the US Army paid for this truck/trailer set!
What do I do with this equipment? Stare at it in awe. Take it in parades. Wish I had reasons to drive it more. And if I did have the reasons, I don't have the time. So I end up babying it for most of it's life in the shed, only letting it see daylight on rare occasions.
