PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES Continued
ITEM TO BE
Track Shoes and
If you lose a track (break a track shoe or
vehicle throws a track), extreme caution
must be exercised in maintaining control.
Immediately release accelerator and let
the vehicle coast to a stop. Do not apply
braking action, i.e. brake pedal, laterals,
pivot, or any type of steering controls.
This causes the vehicle to pull to the active
or good track and could result in a
rollover. It is absolutely necessary to apply
braking action only and we stress only, if
the vehicle is approaching a ravine, a cliff,
or if you perceive the outcome to be
catastrophic, probably resulting in
fatalities. When a rollover is imminent, all
crewmembers should immediately
withdraw inside the vehicle, tighten seat
belts and hold onto a secure fixture, until
the vehicle comes to a complete stop.
