Wow, am I jealous. I pulled a 20 ton grinder from a barge onto an island
two weeks ago with my deuce. Traction was not a problem, it probably had 2
or 3 tons or tongue weight. Sorry not video, but I did get a couple of
pictures for the web site one day. As for your inquiry Patrick,

Check out this site. This dude has lots of stuff about WW2 vehicles
includeing weight.
I would love to have a M5 because it is so light and easy to haul. Not much
more than our JD track-hoe. Unless some one has one for around $100, I'm
out of luck.

I think it is a whistler, but I'm no expert. My deuce is not a whistler,
but one of my "parts" trucks is and it sound like that.

Check out the link above and keep on dreaming. It's all I can do.
