20-TON DUMP TRUCK, RELOCATION OF HOIST FILTER ASSEMBLY
14. SUBJECT OF SUGGESTION
15. SUGGESTION NUMBER
16. DESCRIPTION (Describe the Current Situation and your Suggestion for Change or improvement. Include where and how it can
be used, and identify estimated tangible/intangible benefits which would result from adoption.)
There is an inherent defect in the 20 Ton Dump Hoist Hydraulic Filter attachment
where it mounts on the hydraulic tank. The constant vibration while the vehicle is
in operation fatigues the metal where the fitting is welded to the tank causing oil
to leak out. The present reinforcing bracket is not adequate to prevent this failure
The attached sketch shows our idea of an improved system where the filter is L
mounted separate, avoiding further damage and leakage.
This fix has been successfully applied to all 16 ea 20 Ton Dump Trucks received
and operated by the
Engineer Bn. No further problems are
anticipated. EIR submitted, attached sketch submitted as follow up to EIR.
