The extractor uses centrifugal force to extract water from the wash load prior to the drying process. It is
powered by a 3-hp (2 238 W) motor. The extractor control has a 10-minute variable timer and has a load
capacity of 30 pounds (14 kg).
The heavy-duty dryer is powered by an externally-mounted 1/2 hp (373 W) motor and drive train. It has a

by a water output hose and power cable. After the initial prime, the pump will deliver 18 to 20 gallons (68 to 76
liters) of water per minute.
1-17. AIR COMPRESSOR.
The air compressor provides air pressure for the operation of washer water intake and drain valves. The
adjustable range of compressed air is 20 to 80 psi (138 to 552 kPa).
1-18. GENERATOR AND POWER DISTRIBUTION BOX .
The generator is mounted on the right-hand side of the trailer. Refer to TM 5-6115-585-12 for general
