GENERAL MAINTENANCE (Contd)
REB unit(s) will require touch-up of painted surfaces periodically. The REB is
Chemical Agent Resistant Coating (CARC) painted; notify field maintenance if
bridge or pallet requires touch-up of painted surfaces.
LOADING AND MOVEMENT OF EQUIPMENT
Do not lift a load greater than the rated load capacity of the crane
or materiel handling equipment. Failure to comply may result in
damage to equipment or possible injury or death to personnel.
All personnel must stand clear of equipment prior to lifting
operations or serious injury or death my result.
Ensure pallet launch boom lock pins are removed prior to
lifting pallet. Failure to comply will result in bending launch
boom lock turnbuckles.
The pallet weighs 9,526 lb (4330 kg). The pallet with bridge
weighs a minimum of 21,856 lb (9,480 kg).
1. Shipping Data Plate. The shipping data plate is mounted on pallet A-
frame. A silhouette of the side view of the REB is depicted, and lift/tiedown points
and center of gravity locations are given.
To maintain a low center of gravity, the lifting sling must be
connected to pallet launch boom lifting eyes and A-frame hook
bar only. Failure to comply may result in damage to
equipment or injury or death to personnel.
2. Slinging Provisions. REB slinging provisions enable lifting of REB for both
normal lift and external lift by helicopter. To lift bridge, connect lifting sling to
helicopter lifting rings, located on side of each bridge quarter. To lift pallet, with or
without bridge, refer to WP 0032 00 for installation of sling and BII lifting brackets.
When pallet and bridge are tied down together, tiedowns are to be attached to bridge
and not pallet.
3. Center of Gravity. Lift points are located in relationship to center of
4. Loading and Movement. For transportability guidance, handling, and
movement of the REB, refer to TM 743-200-1, Storage and Materials Handling, and
TM 55-2200-001-12, Transportability Guidance for Application of Blocking, Bracing,
and Tiedown Materials. Refer to TM 9-2320-279-10 for loading and movement
information on the Common Bridge Transporter (CBT).
When pallet is placed on level surface, the pallet front-to-rear
leveling gauges will read approximately 2-degrees from
