J5 Bombardier Trailer
« on: August 09, 2018, 05:31:27 AM »
       These trailers were coupled to J5  Bombardiers, they were capable of carrying heavy loads for their size. I picked up a second one  that needs a little TLC, after 50 plus years in the bush .
                           Started by removing the old mast for the mechanical boom and the rear gate. Installed pockets/pickets , new tubing in the beams , and turned the beam axle , hope to sort out the wheels and tracks next.      J 5

I'll get you some pictures of my axles on Saturday .

Do you weld a pintle hook to the rotating hitch thing ? Or use it like it was made as a weight distributing hitch ?

      Hi Sprucebunny
                  I have the original hitch to use on my one J5 and I made up a pipe tonque  with eyelet to install for the muskegs.

Looks like quite the load of wood on there.
Would it handle it easy going down a steep hill?

      Never any issues on moderate hills , as the J5 is pretty heavy, with the sleigh different story. Usually hook another J5 on the back of the sleigh for one bad hill we travel, guess we could drag chain the runners like the old horse sleigh days.  The sleigh works fine, but come spring with patchy snow or gravel spots on the road  the brakes come on pretty fast, and you can hardly move them .

Did you say Weight Distribution Hitch as in WDH  ?
We have a lot of good boys and girls in harms way
