Section Ill. WHEEL MOUNTING KIT
The wheel mounting kit provides added mobility for the generator set. It consists of a front and a rear axle
assembly. The front axle assembly is equipped with a tow bar, pintle and safety chains. A lock holds the tow bar
in the vertical position when not in use. A mechanical parking brake locks the wheels of the rear axle assembly
against rotation. It is actuated by a hand lever located at the right rear of the generator set. The wheel mounting
kit provides 8 inches of ground clearance for the generator set.
