What is CAST?

why won't they go behind a LR?

Are these the big square ones we sometimes see behind the 4x4 Bedford (MK?)

I think I am right in saying they are the Arrows ones, they run on 850/16 tyres. Nice and big.

cast is a military expression for getting rid of something that is no longer of use.
I believe it is a shortend version of the expression cast off.
I believe these trailers would suit your Mog perfectly.

Yep, way too wide for a Land Rover, could suit a Unimog quite well though   :-k

Yes, they are the ones you'll see behind Bedfords   :D

CAST basically means it is no longer of use to the Military.  It can either be an individual vehicle due to damage from an accident etc, or en masse when a replacement is available.  In this instance it's because the new MAN SV vehicle is taking over from the Bedford and the SV is being issued with a larger 3t trailer  :D

I would doubt that, it'd mean changing axles, "A" frame, tow jaw (or hitch), plus there's the legal side of it  :huh:

  legal side? i can think of hundreds of illegal mods on green fleet vehcles..rangng from rados and bvs all the way up to sleeping or recovery systems..it was allways a case of modding the vehicles to suit wherever you were going next. someone even suggested the back of a 434 was supposed to contain a spare pack not bunk beds, heaters and more food than the local naafi could supply! any workshop could easily mod a 1/34t in anyway necessary

Yes they could, but they are ILLEGAL Mods?  Untested, untrialled etc, anything "can" be done! 

Any ASM worth his salt wouldn't sanction a 1&3/4 conversion !!

I'd imagine they could be towed by a LR but they might be a big big, a bit tall and a bit OTT.

However, does this mean a good supply of cheap 750/16 8 ply trailer tyres [-o<
