HEMTT: Dressed Cab Assembly or Push Kit?

Photo by Katie Wright

Dear Half-Mast,

My unit has an M977A4 HEMTT with a damaged cab, and we need a dressed cab assembly.

Item 1 in Fig 273 of TM 9-2320-326-13&P (IETM EM 0288, Sep 20) shows NSN 2510-01-580-2577. The problem is, we can’t tell if this is a dressed cab assembly or a push kit.

Can you help?

Dear J.T.,

Sure! You’re good to go with NSN 2510-01-580-2577; it’s the correct NSN for the dressed cab assembly.

Just to clarify, there are two (2) separate push kits shown in Fig 50 of the IETM. There’s NSN 2510-01-580-1768, for the load handling system (LHS) variant, and NSN 2510-01-580-1695, for all other non-LHS variants.
