M1231 MK II/III VMMD Husky: INK TANK ALERT!


This article initially appeared in PS 769 (Dec 16), p. 13.
 
Operators, cold weather can spell D-O-O-M for the ink tank on the left side of your Husky’s cab.

The water/ink solution inside the tank will freeze when temperatures drop too low. The tank swells and the welds split. If you notice a tank that’s bulging or with CARC paint peeling off, you’ve got a problem!

When cold weather’s on the way, it’s a good idea to drain the vehicle’s marking system, especially if the vehicle is stored outside. That keeps the water/ink solution from freezing and protects the marking system’s plastic hoses, fittings and spray nozzles.
