DUAL WINCH LOADING AND UNLOADING (CONT)
Winch operator and spotter must read steps (52) thru (56) and be completely
familiar with the sequence of steps prior to using winches or injury to personnel
and damage to equipment may result.
Personnel must not be on the platform during the winching operation. The winch
operator must offload the payload slowly or injury to personnel and damage to
equipment may result.
During winching operation, ensure that one cable is always under tension and the
other cable has some slack so that the two winches are NEVER pulling against
each other. Otherwise, injury to personnel or damage to equipment may occur.
Payload adjustments, side to side (turning), must be kept to a minimum or injury to
personnel and damage to equipment may result. Spotter must notify winch
operator of any required payload adjustments while unloading.
(47) Pull WINCH SPEED CONTROL switch (37) to LOW. Push ENGINE SPEED CONTROL switch (32) to HIGH
ENGINE IDLE. Momentarily push ENGINE SPEED CONTROL switch (33) to lock engine speed at high idle
(approximately 1500 rpm), and then release switch.
(48) Winch operator must push down PASSENGER SIDE WINCH lever (23) to pull payload slightly forward, off of
rear payload chocks (39). Release lever (23). Move both rear payload chocks (39) to rear of platform, just in
front of beavertail and approximately in line with snatch block.
(49) Winch operator must pull up PASSENGER SIDE WINCH lever (23) to pay out passenger side winch cable
(24) to restrain payload and push down DRIVERS SIDE WINCH lever (35) to take up drivers side winch cable
(36). As long as drivers side cable (36) is pulling payload, winch operator must keep a slight sag in
passenger side cable (24). If payload rolls on its own, winch operator must allow slack in drivers side cable
(36) and keep tension on passenger side cable (24) to control speed of roll. Continue winching until payload
reaches rear payload chocks (39). Release levers (23 and 35).
