This breakaway of the soil underneath the tires is why the CCE Dumper gets so badly stuck, if loss of traction
occurs and the rear tires spin out. Don't try to blast out by spinning tires. You'll only dig in deeper and tear up a heavy
truck that has exceeded its operating limit. With spinning of the tires, sheet of good compacted soil, that has had the
moisture squeezed out of it, are sheared and moved rearward out from under the tires. It's like having a number of rugs
pulled out from under you and down you go!
The CCE-IHC Dump Truck is a commercial ON-OFF ROAD type of heavy truck. The term "on-off road" indicates
that the truck has comprise components that are good on-road and that are good off-road. The CCE Dumper's mission is
to haul large payloads on earthmoving Jobs. For best use of these trucks, the haul roads selected should be in good
condition and should be maintained with a smooth, solid, rubble-free surface which will allow 30 mph minimum speeds.
Regardless of any truck's potential speed capability, a construction haul road having 2-to -3 mph soft spots causes traffic
bottlenecks, interrupts ton-per day production, and drastically increase truck maintenance. To keep production high,
decrease truck deadline ratios , and reduce driver fatigue, maintain your haul roads. Clean out soft soil and fill with
crushed, rock and then use your motor grader to keep the road smooth and clean of debris. Also, use the water
distributor to keep the dust down and improve driving safety. Truck accidents are non-productive.
Any truck sooner or later will become stuck (immobilized). The CCE Dumper, because of its heavy loaded weight,
tends to either go through soft spots or get badly STUCK. There is nothing much in between these extremes The
following operational points are offered:
a. Before traversing soft areas:
Stop the truck. While stopped, engage your rear tandem interaxle differential lock-up on top of the dash, shift
your aux box into either Direct-Drive or Under-Drive range, and finally shift your main powershift transmission into
1-2 or 1-2-3 range. Use higher gearing for soupy stuff and lower gearing for thicker gummy stuff.
