Trailer at Iron Mike Museum, Columbus, GA

Picture was taken at the Iron Mike Museum, Columbus, GA. It has a wire reel and a seat for an operator to work a drag blade to create a shallow trench for the wire.

Brian: Bob Hagen, the owner moved it out of the museum today. He deals with equipment in the 1940s.
By the way, I used to live in University Hills, and went to South High.

I cannot log onto the cckw web site since I'm not a registered user there, so I'll post my data here.

The plow pictured on the cckw web site looks like a WW II LC-61 plow that has a reel carrier added to its front end. The LC-61 plow weights 1,525 pounds net, was designed to be pulled by a 2-1/2 ton truck, tractor or winch line, and could bury insulated wires or a small cable from 6" to 18" deep. See TM 11-369 or TM 11-370 for further details. The picture below is taken from page 140 in TM 11-487 [Electrical Communication Sysems Equipment] dated 2 October 1944.

A couple of Winters ago in upstate NY I found this Reel Trailer in a junk yard. Pictures are dark but it was OD, is military, and had WWII era taillights on it.

There was no dataplate.

Any idea what it is
