The load-carrying capacity of the CBT is 10 tons (9 metric tons). Since the lifting
capabilities of the LHS will allow loading of more than 10 tons (9 metric tons),
care must be taken to make sure the load does not exceed the 10-ton (9 metric
ton) limit. Failure to heed this warning could result in death or injury to
personnel and/or damage to equipment.
During all Transporter operations, the operator will drive and be responsible for
the operation of the LHS cab control box. The assistant acts as a ground guide
and will be responsible for directing the operator using hand signals, operating the
remote control box and winch, and assisting the operator as needed.
BAP hold-down locks must be unlocked from the LHS prior to commencing BAP
unloading operations. Failure to release BAP hold-down locks could result in
damage to equipment.
If NATO flatrack is loaded, inspect load and make sure it is secure and weight of load does not exceed 10 tons
(9 metric tons).
Put transmission in reverse and back up Transporter so there is at least 6 feet (2 m) of clearance behind
Transporter for loading NATO flatrack.
d. Apply parking brake and place transmission in neutral.
When selecting PTO ENGAGE switch, engine must be at low idle speed. Se-
lection of PTO engage switch with HIGH IDLE switch on may result in sudden
application of hydraulic pressure to the LHS, resulting in damage to equipment.
PTO ENGAGE switch must be turned off before road transport or severe
equipment damage could result.
Turn LHS MODE SELECT switch (1) to AUTO SEQUENCE, and turn PTO ENGAGE switch (2) to ON.
