Screed Removal -- Continued.
7. Disconnect hydraulic hose 95A from hydraulic fitting 2, hydraulic hose 95B from hydraulic fitting 9, hydraulic
hose 97A from hydraulic fitting 12, hydraulic hose 98A from hydraulic fitting 14, hydraulic hose 98B from
hydraulic fitting 18, hydraulic hose 97B from hydraulic fitting 19, hydraulic hose 99 from hydraulic fitting 21,
hydraulic hose 100 from hydraulic fitting 22, hydraulic hose 111 from hydraulic fitting 26, hydraulic hose 110
from hydraulic fitting 27, hydraulic hose 94 from hydraulic fitting 29, and hydraulic hose 96 from hydraulic
fitting 30 at bulkhead (Figure 4), and cap/plug hydraulic hoses and hydraulic fittings.
8. Remove hydraulic hoses from tractor portion of BMPM.
Exhaust discharge contains deadly gases, including carbon monoxide. Do not operate BMPM in
an enclosed area unless exhaust discharge is properly vented. Failure to comply may cause
injury or death to personnel.
Ensure no screed hoses or cables are connected or entangled with tractor portion of the BMPM.
9. Set BATTERY DISCONNECT switch to ON (TM 5-3895-385-10).
10. Start BMPM engine (TM 5-3895-385-10), and visually check hydraulic fittings at bulkhead for leaks.
There are many points on the BMPM where personnel could be injured by moving parts. Care
should be taken to avoid any pinch points when performing maintenance. Failure to comply may
cause injury or death to personnel.
11. Lift screed raise hydraulic cylinders by hand, and drive tractor portion of BMPM away from screed slowly.
Ensure no cables, hoses, or any other hardware is still connected or entangled with screed.
