a . G e n e r a l .
M916A1 and M916A2 tractors are equipped with a full
hydraulic winch mounted on the frame behind the cab. The winch has a fail safe
spring-loaded brake that automatically sets any time the winch control valve is in neu-
tral or there is a power failure (hydraulic pressure drops to less than 200 psi).
The winch operates at 2100 psi hydraulic pressure from a
dual pump driven by a PTO on the transmission. The rated capacity of the winch is
45,000 lb (20,250 kg). For more information, refer to TM 5-725.
