Tire Inflation Mose
4. Reasons for Action Taken or Recommended.
a. This suggestion recommends that the CCE-IHC Paystar F5070, 20 Ton Dump Truck, 6x4, 71,000 GVWR, be
equipped with an air brake pressure connection and a hose with inflation chuck for tire inflation in the field.
b. The Military Design M-Series 2 1/2, 5, and 10 Ton truck fleet have an air hose, quick-disconnect on the fire wall
for the purpose of tire inflation in the field. The 830-B and 290-M Medium Rubber Tired Tractors are equipped with an air
brake gladhand and a hose with inflation gage and chuck for the same purpose.
c. The suggestion is partially approved, based on the needs of in-field tire inflation by each using unit. It is believed
that a complete CCE-IHC dump truck retrofit would not be appropriate at this time, since the cost of an MWO and its
across the truck fleet implementation could far exceed the cost of daily tire pressure checks that are required by "Before
Service" PM. The risk of tire loss and tire fires resulting is not sufficient to warrant retrofitting each CCE-IHC Dump Truck,
except on a using unit evaluation basis, as determined by each dump truck user.
