(1)   Tire Pressure.   Tire pressure for the M1088 Tractor is determined by trailer payload, vehicle speed, and the type of terrain to be crossed.   Refer to  Table 2-16.   M1088 Speed  and  Tire  Pressure  on  Highways,  Table  2-17.    M1088  Speed  and  Tire Pressure on Gravel/Dirt, Table 2-18.  M1088 Speed and Tire Pressure for Cross Country, or Table 2-19.  M1088 Speed and Tire Pressure in Sand/Mud/Snow for correct tire pressure. (2)   Towing.  When towing trailer, overall length of M1088 Tractor must be kept in mind when passing other vehicles.   During trailer towing operations, acceleration rate is reduced and stopping distance increased. (3)   Turning.   When turning corners, trailer wheels will track inside the turning radius of M1088 Tractor. To make right or left turn at intersection, drive approximately halfway into intersection and then turn sharply in desired direction.   This will prevent trailer from running over curb or from going in lane of oncoming traffic.
