Turn bogie wheels retaining collar ¼ turn clockwise to unlock bogie wheels. If retaining collar is still tight, use han-
dle stowed forward of bogie wheels to rotate shaft.
Push bogie wheels lever to lower bogie wheels; ensure wheels are lowered sufficiently to apply ground pressure.
Open shutoff valve #5 inside remote hydraulic control compartment by turning handle 90° counterclockwise. Bogie
wheels will lower further and apply correct amount of ground pressure.
Always use a ground guide (load master) and do not exceed 1 mph (1.6 kph) speed when driving RTCH up
ramps in preparation for air transport. Failure to use a ground guide may result in an accident, causing death
or injury to personnel or damage to equipment.
Oversteering will damage dolly and bogie wheels.
Using first gear and two-wheel steering mode, slowly drive RTCH forward up ramps and position inside aircraft. DO
NOT exceed 1 mph (1.6 kph) speed. Only slight steering corrections (no more than ¼ turn of steering wheel) are
allowed during loading.
Lower boom support to the maximum onto the frame (refer to Placing Boom Support in Transport Position).
