OPERATING THE CONVEYOR - Continued
Keep hands clear of moving conveyor chain at all times.
Do not operate conveyor with chain guard removed.
When transporting powder charges on conveyor, always
attach grounding cable to supported howitzer. This pre-
vents buildup of static electricity, reducing chance of ig-
niting a propelling charge.
Do not drop or throw projectiles
or propelling charges
Promptly remove projectiles and propelling charges from
howitzer end of conveyor. Keep end section under obser-
vation. Turn off conveyor if ammunition begins to pile
Cables are not intended to support the conveyor under
normal operating conditions. ONLY if conveyor support is
missing or falls may cables be used to support conveyor
during operation. When operating in this mode, avoid sud-
den movement of conveyor. Periodically inspect cables
and attaching hardware for damage. Notify Organizational
Maintenance immediately upon mission completion If ca-
ble damage exists.
