Abstract:

An International TD-15 tractor with Drott fork lift attachment was evaluated to determine its suitability for the pipe handling operations involved in installing and retrieving the 4 inch and 6-inch amphibious fueling systems and for handling pontoons in the assembly of floating structures on shore. The fork lift was not acceptable in its original configuration and was modified by International Harvester Company representatives. The modified version was tested and found capable of handling the 4-inch and 6 inch pipe but is not suitable for use in assem bling floating structures on shore. Author
