The scraper rear section has the following capabilities and features:
elevating bowl with a load rate of less than one minute, to an 11 yd3 (8.4 m3) capacity;
interchangeable and reversible cutting edges, with center section predrilled to allow installation of four
two-speed forward, one reverse speed elevator to lift material into bowl; and

When sectionalized, tractor can be driven using front and rear skids for stability, and steered using a skid steer sys-
EQUIPMENT CHARACTERISTICS, CAPABILITIES, AND FEATURES (WATER DISTRIBUTOR)
The 613CWD Water Distributor, used in conjunction with the 613CS Scraper, provides the Army with the capabil-
ity to efficiently build roads, helipads, airfields, landing zones/airstrips, and other engineering assets in a wide vari-
ety of geographic, environmental, and tactical situations.
The water distributor self-loads, transports, and distributes a maximum of 2525 gallons (9,558 liters) of water, soil
stabilization or dust palliative solutions, providing soil stabilization, dust control, and compaction capabilities.
The machine also provides power washing and de-icing operations when required.
With optional attachments mounted, the machine provides soil cultivation and road grading capabilities.
The water distributor is capable of all critical water distribution operations in a degraded mode of operation (i.e.,
Capabilities and Features.
Refer to Equipment Data (Water Distributor) at the end of this work package for machine dimensions,
weights, fluid capacities, and other miscellaneous equipment data.
The water distributor consists of two sections: front tractor section and rear water distributor section. These may be
separated (sectionalization) to allow external air transport by CH-47 helicopter.
All parts and tools needed for sectionalization are contained within an ISU-60 container. This container also has
stowage space for parts that are removed from the machine for sectionalization.
After sectionalization, the tractor half of this machine is reassembled with the water distributor half. It may also be
assembled and operated with the scraper half of the 613CS Scraper (interchangeability).
The water distributor can be transported by driving onto the following aircraft: C-17 and C-5. After reconfigura-
tion, it can be driven onto a C-130 for transport.
The machine can be rigged on an air delivery platform for airdrop from C-130 aircraft.
Commercial trailers, trains or marine vessels can also transport the water distributor.
The water distributor can fresh-water ford to a depth of 3.28 ft (1 m) without damage or contamination of lubri-
The tractor front section has the following capabilities and features:
Caterpillar 3116TA turbocharged diesel engine with six in-line cylinders, generating 175 horsepower @
integral ether cold start for engine startup down to -25F (-32C);
