Front Axle Steering. The steering wheel in the carrier cab provides conventional
steering control of the front axle so that the crane is steered in the direction the steering wheel is
turned. This method of steering must always be used on the road or when traveling at higher

normal steering response.

Verify that REAR STEER LOCK ENGAGED Indicator (46) on the front

REAR AXLE STEERING Control Switch (48) to center the wheels.
