OPERATION IN COLD WEATHER
Cold weather presents special problems because cold oil and hydraulic components should not be operated to
capacity until the system has warmed up. This can be accomplished by performing the following steps:
Engage Power Take Off (PTO) (TM 9-2320-363-10 or TM 9-2320-302-10) while engine is warming up.
Run engine at idle speed.
Clear all personnel from around the dump body.
Operate hydraulic control lever and check operation of dump body at low engine rpms to verify normal
operation (WP 0004). Keep in mind that oil has not been circulated through the hydraulic cylinder.
Lower dump body and place hydraulic control lever in N (Neutral) position (WP 0004).
