I have recently acquired a very nice piece of military surplus that may interest those of you wanting a easy tower setup and backup power. This is a TP-5A4-DC Military gen set trailer with a 30 foot pneumatic mast. The trailer has a 6 KW diesel Onan generator, air compressor to run the mast and all sorts of outlets both, 110 and 220. In the video the fenders, side door and tongue of the trailer are removed for repair and painting. This little gem came with new tires and only 67 hours on the use clock inside. Gotta love what our military throws away.....

Will post more photos or video as the restoration project moves along..

That is neat ! Is the orange extension cord running the compressor ? And just how much (or little) did ya pay for this ? All you need now is a surplus helo and you'll be able to air lift it to the other side of the house !!!
