M915 and M915A1 tractors (without ABS) pulling an empty M872A4
trailer have shown a tendency to veer out of the driving lane during
hard braking under dry conditions. Speeds above 35 mph under
hard braking will require the driver to quickly compensate steering
for tractor/trailer instability. Reduce speed even further under wet
and slippery conditions which can also cause tractor/trailer instability.
Failure to follow this warning could result in injury to personnel or
damage to equipment.
M915A2, M915A3 and M915A4 tractors (without functioning ABS) pulling
an empty M872A4 trailer have shown a tendency to veer out of the
driving lane during hard braking under dry conditions. Speeds above
35 mph under hard braking will require the driver to quickly compensate
steering for tractor/trailer instability. Reduce speed even further under
wet and slippery conditions which can also cause tractor/trailer instability.
When the mission is complete, report to Organizational Maintenance to
fix the ABS fault and restore all ABS capabilities. Failure to follow this
warning could result in injury to personnel or damage to equipment.
