COMMON BRIDGE TRANSPORTER CONTROLS AND INDICATORS
WORK LIGHT SWITCH
There is a WORK LIGHT switch located on the
side panel to the right of the DOMELIGHT switch. Placing the WORKLIGHT
switch in the UP position turns on the work light at the LHS main frame and
the hand-held spotlight at the control valve cabinet.
HIGH IDLE SWITCH
There is a HIGH IDLE switch on the top panel of
the cab console (heater compartment) adjacent to the PTO ENGAGE switch
and indicator. The HIGH IDLE switch is placed in the ON position after the
PTO is engaged to increase engine idle speed to 1,200 rpm; this is necessary
to raise pump fluid pressure for LHS operation.
PTO ENGAGE SWITCH AND INDICATOR
There is a PTO switch and
indicator located on the top panel of the cab console (heater compartment)
adjacent to the HIGH IDLE SWITCH. Prior to operation of the LHS, the
HIGH IDLE SWITCH is left in the OFF position with the vehicle engine
running, and the PTO is engaged by moving this switch to the ON position.
The PTO ENGAGE INDICATOR will light when the PTO ENGAGE SWITCH
is in the ON position.
