MAINTENANCE OF M939 SERIES VEHICLES - OD1661 - LESSON 1/TASK 1
(2) Purpose of the Vehicles. M924 and M926 cargo trucks are used
to transport equipment, materials, and/or personnel. These vehicles
are basically the same as the M923 and M925 cargo trucks. However,
N924 and M926 cargo trucks have permanent steel-welded sides.
this reason, they are preferred vehicles for use in transporting
bulky payloads that may shift during transit.
M924 and M926 load
limits on highways and cross-country are the same as the M923 and
Both vehicles provide 550 cubic feet of cargo space.
seats may be positioned for troop transport operations. The M926 is
equipped with a front winch.
This feature makes the M926 more
versatile for operations under difficult field conditions.
(3) Performance. The performance characteristics are the same as
those of the cargo trucks with dropsides. The turning radius of the
M24 truck is 38 feet.
The turning radius of the M926 truck is 39
(4) Special Limitations.
M924 and M926 cargo trucks are not
suited for operations that require easy side access to cargo.
example of this is a ground-to-truck fork lift operation. In such an
operation, cargo trucks with dropsides are preferred.
Cargo Trucks with Extra Long Wheelbases (XLWB):
M927 WO/W and
M928 W/W (figure 3 on the following page).
(1) Differences. The only difference between the M927 cargo truck
(XLWB) and M928 cargo truck (XLWB) is that the M927 does not have a
front winch and the M928 does.
This difference affects the
following: vehicle length, vehicle weight, shipping dimensions,
This difference does not affect the basic purpose,
performance, or special limitations of the vehicle.
(2) Purpose of the Vehicle. M927 and M928 cargo trucks have the
same load capacities as those of the M923, M924, M925, and M926 cargo
trucks already discussed.
However, truck beds on M927 and M928
vehicles are 76 inches longer.
This provides each vehicle with an
additional 194 cubic feet of cargo space. M927 and M928 cargo trucks
are specifically designed to transport equipment and materials that
