England 2010 Discovery 4 3.0 TDV6 GS Auto Buckingham BlueDiscovery 4

When I was in the Army a wide track was towed behind a HGV and had a gross weight of 1.75 tonnes.

A narrow track ( Sankey, Penman etc ) has a gross weight I think around .75 tonne up to a tonne and was towed behind LR's or there equivalent.

The wide track was not allowed to be towed behind non HGV on public roads due to the difference in width !

Seems to be some confusion . Mine was a 3/4 ton and designated widetrack see release papers (Of Sankey Design)

I had an earlier one which was same length but narrower from the 1960's and referred to as Narrow track .
My comment that it was a Mk 3 obviously Wrong, Mk 2 with drum brakes

This is the classification we used as widetrack all the rest where trailer cargo 1 tonne or .75 tonne





And I would definitely not tow one behind my D4 Laughing
