    What is it?

    Saw this with Andrew Wilkins. Looks a very useful bit of kit.

    But what is it?
    Don't itch for something if you're not prepared to scratch for it.

    I reckon it is some kind of cable drum reeler, but it doesn't look quite right. Perhaps its a dolly for moving something?

    What ever it moves, it uses a pair of container twist-locks but vertically rather than the normal horizontal mode to connect up to it Odd!


    Bet it cost a few pounds out of the defence budget

    Probably more than a few thousand and it doesn't look like 'used' second hand to me...... very good value if u had a good use for it!

    I would say it is something for moving or towing an artillery piece or something like that.
