    Time is running out on these trailers. If there are no buyers soon they will have to go for scrap as the site must be cleared!!!

    Polsten Quad Manuals

    No you can't operate guns on the trailer. I think about 12" of blocks should be high enough to clear the trailer to slide it out. We did this fairly easily at a few shows many years ago, I towed it behind a Chevy Gun Tractor.

    Polsten Quad Manuals

    If I remember correctly I used to jack up the platform fully on blocks of wood then 2 people can slide the trailer out holding it on the handles. Reconnecting is the reverse procedure. Loosen the jacks individually to remove the blocks. Still have mine http://www.anti-aircraft.co.uk/restoration_polstenquad.html
