Thornycroft Two-wheeled Attachments March 1924

For the transport of loads exceeding 6 tons (6,096kg), or for those of particularly bulky nature, we can supply two-wheeled attachments for use in conjunction with our standard types of chassis specified below. For heavy loads they are most suitable with our Types "J" and "Q" chassis, or for light and bulky loads with our Type "BT" chassis

The latter combination is particularly suitable for service overseas, where axle-weights are restricted by local regulations or road conditions.

If an attachment is required to be in constant use we recommend a shorter wheelbase than that of our standard chassis, to ensure the combination being easily manoeuvred in narrow roads and confined spaces. Powerful brakes are fitted to the trailing wheels, controlled from the driver's seat and the wheels are fitted with solid rubber tyres.

Following are brief particulars of these attachments:
