Banner Equipment Hauler - Light Green HP

Here's a nifty Equipment Hauler from Banner. Made from 1949 to the mid-1950s and measuring  9 1/4" (23.49cm) L x 1 1/2" (3.81cm) W x 2" (5.08cm) H, this truck came in a variety of colors and included one of several loads like a boat, steam roller, and tractor. For the blog it's also a nice segue into other subjects because as you'll see in the last set of photos we have it hauling a U.S. Army Tractor blogged back on Dec 12, 2016. This is not at all an unusual mash-up as the military extensively uses contractor's to haul loads and bringing in any kind of heavy equipment to a construction site would not be uncommon. Enjoy!

The green you see in the below photo is closer to the correct color than that shown above due to the camera's idiosyncrasies.

As shown in the photos below the tractor is a perfect fit for the Equipment Hauler

When I bought the truck it came with a Banner Dirt Hauler and as you can see, the Dirt Hauler doesn't really fit well on the trailer. We'll cover the Dirt Hauler in another post
