When a track carrier gets out of control and overturns, it is safer to stay in the carrier than to
try to get out while the carrier is still moving. You may receive slight injuries from being
thrown against metal parts; but if you try to leave the carrier, it may roll over and crush you.
Once the carrier stops moving, get out as fast as possible because spilled fuel and oil may catch
on fire. The first thing the driver should do in such an emergency is shut off the engine and turn
off the MASTER SWITCH to minimize the fire hazard.
Use 1-2 range until you get used to driving carrier.
