The Chant Engineering Model 10199 Hydraulic Fluid Oil Transfer System (OTS) is designed to fill and drain (pressurize and depressurize) the hydraulic recoil mechanism on the Army's M777A1 and A2 Howitzer weapons. The recoil mechanism must be depressurized for maintenance and then repressurized prior to going back into service. It is designed for use with MIL-PRF-6083 hydraulic fluid, although it will also operate with most other hydraulic fluids.
The OTS consists of a wheeled cart, a fluid reservoir, an electric pump, a hand pump with removable handle, a flow meter, a 3 micron filter, servicing hoses with quick disconnects, and the necessary valves. It is designed for use in demanding conditions.
