Operators, make sure the MK III VMMD Husky’s ink spray hoses are properly routed, attached and tucked away whenever the vehicle’s mine detector heads are in the elevated position.
Hoses that are loose or dangling will get ripped off the vehicle on the way to the work site. You won’t be locating any mines then!
Dangling ink spray lines will get ripped off
Check the hoses before and after the day’s run. Notify your mechanic if any of the ink lines are loose or damaged.
You’ll find more about proper ink hose routing in WPs 0084 and 0085 of TM 9-2355-316-10 (Jun 19).
