List of military users?[edit]

Would it make sense to create a separate wikiarticle, listing the military users of this truck family? I know for sure that the Argentine Army was (and probably still is) user of it, where it was commonly known as "REO". Regards, DPdH (talk) 01:06, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

This has bothered me for quite some time. Under "Operational History" It is stated that "The M35 truck was not used by the United States Marine Corps....". I was in the United States Marine Corp and I can't count the number of times I personally rode in the back of an M35. I realize it's anecdotal, but life experience can't be wrong. It just is.

Misssing Criteria[edit]

The truck was a cargo carrier, but how many men could it seat in back? 12,16 or 20? (talk) 16:15, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

Still in production?[edit]

infobox says: "Produced 1950–present" I wouldn't think that's correct. When did they stop making them? MartinezMD (talk) 02:21, 20 April 2011 (UTC)


In the U.S. vehicles are sometimes described by “wheels” rather than axles, with two wheels per axle. Dual rear tires are mounted closely parallel to each other on a common hub, and do not move in relation to each other, acting as single wheels, and are more of a tire option than a mechanical difference. Both the M34 and M35 have six “wheels”, even though the M35 has 10 tires. The "6x6" number is “number of wheels X of number wheels powered”, “6X6” means all three axles are powered.Sammy D III (talk) 18:23, 21 April 2013 (UTC)

G.I. slang[edit]

The M35 2½-ton cargo truck was often referred to as a "deuce and a half" by U.S. Army personnel; and as a "six by six" by U.S. Navy, U.S. Coast Guard and U.S Marine Corps personnel. Tjlynnjr (talk) 21:54, 11 March 2014 (UTC) .

Errors in types of fuel for multi-fuel motor[edit]

To my knowledge, those particular engines did NOT allow "jet fuel" to be run in those engines. They even had a plaque bolted to the dash warning you not to use aviation grade fuel. You could also possibly add that mixing fuels was permissible, which is also something labeled on those trucks. My source is a 1971 M35. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:15, 25 November 2017 (UTC)

This is the army and air force technical manual. It specifically lists aviation fuels - JP7, JP8, Jet A, and Jet A-1. The manual can be downloaded for better search function. Much like any diesel engine, the lighter fuels don't have much lubricating properties, but they are more reliable as the temperature drops, e.g. at -76 F you can use Avgas but diesel would likely gel. The manual states to mix the fuel with 10-30% diesel if the engine is running rough.
Hope that helps. MartinezMD (talk) 20:52, 25 November 2017 (UTC)
