Figure 3. 1966 M35 6 6, 2-1/2-ton truck mounted with an early German-
built Schmidt Engineering 11-foot conventional, manually reversible snow-
plow manufactured in 1950. This plow was in service in Baumholder,
Germany, with the U.S. Army for 43 years before being shipped to Task
Force Able Sentry in 1994, where it continues in service today.
Information: Operations instructions in this report were previously
reviewed by the respective manufacturers and the Training and Doctrine
Department of the U.S. Army Engineer School. The SEE tractor and the
5-ton truck snowplows were approved by TACOM. A prototype
HMMWV snowplow had undergone initial testing by TECOM and the
current model later was extensively reviewed for safety purposes and
operational compatibility. This effort was completed and approved by
TACOM in 1999.
