TOW START DISABLED CARRIER (M548A1)
Before hooking up a tow bar or disconnecting the drive shafts between the differential and final
drives, chock the carrier with blocks so it cannot move.
A towed carrier does not have steering until it reaches 3 mph (5 km/hr). Death or injury could
result. Use tow bar or use brakes to stop carrier, when necessary.
All personnel except driver will disembark disabled carrier before towing operation begins.
A carrier can be started by towing, if it cant be started normally or with a slave cable. To be
safe, use a tow bar if one is available. If not, use two tow cables and tow hooks.
Connect tow bar or towing cables between disabled carrier and tow carrier (WP 0049 00).
