Not a problem. I'm sure you'll be impressed by it. And, their early Elco 80-footer kit.

All though the drums are a little different they should still pass as POL drums. The fuel drums are smother but I think these drums appear more like the type our community garage receive each year on the yearly sealift. The barrel is normally black with the top being painted different depending on the contents I think but am not sure about that part. Definitely looks like something that would be useful with the cargo trucks used by logistics corps.

At the risk of sounding stupid or ignorant ... what is a POL drum?

Ahoy Garth,

I think Al posted this in the wrong section, it really does not make any sense or pertain to your thread on the Merit PT.

Have a great day,
Joe

I have no idea how this commment ended up in this section. I made this comment in the armour section regarding a pallet lift truck with some drums and box's included. L - Lubricants just to finish the answer on what POL stands for. Computers are a mysterious item some days.

In U.S. supply parlance POL stands for Petroleum, Oil, Lubricants.
