    Minimum Air pressure before moving
    Service Breaks

    • Front: 17 inch Disk
    • Rear : 16.5 inch S-cam Drum

    • Air Applied Spring Released
    • 100 PSI before moving
  42. What will happen if Air Pressure drops below what pressure?
    An audible and Visual low pressure alarm will sound once the pressure has dropped to 60 PSI
  43. What are the Parking Brakes called?

    How are they applied?

    When will they come on?
    Maxi Brakes

    Spring Applied Air Released. Engaged on the rear axels

    When maxi brake lever is pulled or when air pressure drops to 40-60 PSI
  44. Describe the Emergency Brakes and their purpose
    System used for when there is a brake system failure [ loss of air pressure ]

    If air pressure drops to 60 PSI, Emergency Brakes will start to come on

    Once the pressure drops to 40 PSI, Emergency Brakes are fully engaged, and apparatus is at a complete stop
  45. What does ABS stand for?

    Describe what it does

    How do you turn it on and how do you use it?
    Antilock Brake System

    Electronic sensors detect that brakes of the tires have locked. System automatically modulates the brakes. [ Pumping Action ]

    ABS system always on. For use, apply brakes when sliding and maintain holding down the brake pedal until you come to a complete stop
  46. Describe Front Wheel Lock
    An emergency brake to use for steep upgrades

    Engage parking brake first then front wheel lock

    Engages the Front Service Brakes when applied

    To release, release parking brake

    Engine must be running for Front Wheel Lock to work.
  47. Inter- Axel Differential Lock

    Rear Axels differential is locked allowing torque to be supplied equally between the two Axels

    Under normal dry road conditions, with two drive axels, there are 4 wheels on the ground each having 25% torque values

    Without this lock, if one wheel wheel were to spin on ice, then most or all torque would be lost to the spinning tire just as it would with a single axel vehicle

    Speed Limit with Inter-Axel Differential Lock on:
    Speed limit : 35 MPH

    Risk loss of control or differential damage if you exceed the speed limit
  48. On Spot Chains:

    What are they operated by?

    How do you engage them?

    What are your speed limits?
    Operated by the apparatus air system

    Engage them while moving [Forward or Reverse]

    • Have to be moving to engage
    • No faster then 25 MPH to engage
    • No faster then 35 MPH to disengage
    • 35 MPH is the limit when driving

    Engage before slippery conditions to avoid locking up the wheels

    • Cable chains can also be used. With them on 30 MPH is the limit
    • Have window open and headsets off if cables are used to listen for cable snaps
  49. Fire Pump:

    What kind of pump?
    Waterous 1500 GPM Centrifugal Pump with pressure control and intake relief valve
  50. Fire Pump:
    What does the throttle control do?
    It is a toggle switch that can adjust the engine RPM

    If in pressure mode, will adjust the discharge pressure and attempt to maintain dishcharge pressure by altering the engine RPM

    Pump has to be engaged and in gear for pressure control to work

    Engine cannot go below Idle RPM for pressure control to work

    A green light will light up on the Pump Panel to indicate the pump is engaged
