EQUIPMENT CHARACTERISTICS, CAPABILITIES, AND
The M916A1 and M916A2 have a transmission-mounted
PTO which powers the winch. The PTO on the M917A1 and M917A1 w/MCS powers
the dump body controls (TM 5-3805-264-14&P).
The M915A2 and M916A1 are equipped with an instrument
panel mounted tachograph which registers and records data related to truck ground
speed, engine speed, and distance traveled. This data is stored on a 7-day graph for
a permanent record. All other models are equipped with a Datalogger which is a data
processing module that provides data storage capability and records in detail the per-
formance and utilization of the vehicle. Datalogger memory can store over a month of
data for use by maintenance and management personnel. There is no operator inter-
ference with the Datalogger.
