GENERAL
This chapter contains the instructions for loading and unloading the Abrams Main Battle Tank (MBT) series with mine
clearing blade attached onto the M1000 Heavy Equipment Transporter Semitrailer (HETS). Paragraph 2-2 contains the
procedures for loading and unloading when the MBT can be driven onto the platform.  Paragraph 2-3 contains the
procedures for loading and unloading when the MBT is disabled and must be pulled onto the platform using the M1070
Tractor winches.
NOTE
Throughout this technical bulletin, the terms used to describe areas and parts of
the semitrailer, and their location relative to each other, are referenced as follows:
When a person stands at the loading ramp end (rear) of the semitrailer looking
toward the gooseneck on the forward (front) end of the semitrailer, the side on the
left is designated as the "streetside" and the side on the right is designated as the
"curbside". Locations of areas and items on or under the semitrailer platform will
be identified as inboard (toward or nearest the center of the platform) or outboard
(farthest from the center).  For example, the hydraulic operating controls and
gages are located on the curbside of the semitrailer under the front corner of the
platform. The crowbar is mounted at the rear of the platform.
Since the payload is loaded backward (rear of the payload first), special care is
taken to describe locations at the front of the payload (where the driver's
compartment is) and at the rear of the payload (where the engine exhaust is).
