SEMITRAILER EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTION AND DATA
EQUIPMENT CHARACTERISTICS, CAPABILITIES, AND FEATURES
The semitrailer is constructed of welded stainless steel, with a single compartment tank of 5000 gallons
(18,927 L) plus a 3% capacity of product expansion. The chassis is constructed of welded stainless steel
and is equipped with full floating tandem axles and manually operated landing gear.
The semitrailer is designed to be towed by a prime mover equipped with a fifth wheel. The M967A2
5,000-Gallon Tanker may be used with the following tractors that have ABS braking systems: M915,
M1088 (FMTV), and M931/M932 only. Use of the M967A2 and M969A3 with the M818 and M931/M932
without ABS brakes is not authorized. Tankers are not to be filled to exceed the load capacities of the
tractors. Due to limited payload capacity, some of the tractors will not be able to haul fully loaded
tankers. No over-load waiver is allowed for these tankers. When driving on hard-surface highways, only
the 10-ton military-adapted commercial 6x4 prime movers, the M915, M915A1, and M915A2 are
authorized. The semitrailer can be loaded through the bottom or top fill opening. The Lombardini three-
cylinder diesel engine in combination with the Gorman Rupp 4-in. pump provides self-load/unload
The semitrailer is equipped with pressure and vacuum vents, a sealed manhole, an improved vapor
recovery system, three 4-in. hoses for loading/off loading and bulk delivery, a portable grounding rod, two
static reels, and a spare tire. A ladder is provided at the rear of the semitrailer for easy access to the top
