CONTROLS AND OPERATION
Push this knob in and pull out the Maxibrake control knob
(item 17) if it becomes necessary to use the air in the
emergency air tank to release the Maxibrake.
The carrier will have no brakae, except the Maxi-
brakes, which are controlled by the Maxibrake con-
trol valve. Never move the carrier farther than is ab-
solutely necessary under these conditions, and avoid
steep grades. Make certain that this knob is pulled out
at all time during normal operation.
