OPERATION IN SNOW AND ON ICE CONTINUED
1. Accelerate slowly to avoid spinning tracks.
2. Drive at slower speeds.
3. Give signals sooner.
4. Slow down sooner to give early warning of intention to stop. This will also help to avoid skidding.
5. Keep windshields and lights clean and free of snow and ice.
6. Select engine and ground speeds that best suit conditions (WP 0004).
1. Depress service brake control pedal to slow machine (WP 0004).
2. DO NOT pump service brake control pedal.
3. Once machine has stopped, rotate transmission directional control to NEUTRAL position (WP 0004).
If parking on icy, slushy, wet, or muddy surfaces, place boards, dunnage, or other materials below tracks to help
guard against tracks freezing to the ground or becoming pocketed in ice.
END OF TASK
The D7R Dozer can ford water up to 30 in. (76 cm), including height of wake.
C AU T I O N
Do not ford even the narrowest stream if it is more than 30 in. (76 cm) deep. Failure to
follow this caution may result in damage to machine.
1. Check depth of water at its deepest point.
2. Ensure the bottom is stable enough for fording.
3. Start engine and allow it to fully warm up (WP 0005).
4. Ensure all alert indicators and Action Light Indicator are not illuminated, and all gauges are indicating proper
5. Raise ripper and blade to their maximum height (WP 0004).
N OT E
Fording speed should not exceed 34 mph (56 km/h). Once in the water, do not stop until
the opposite bank is reached.
8. Enter water slowly to minimize waves and backsplash, and continue across body of water WITHOUT STOP-
PING until the opposite bank is reached.
9. If machine stalls, refer to Recovery and Towing in this work package.
10. Once machine is out of water, lubricate machine completely IAW LO 5-2410-241-13.
