This curriculum guide provides instructional materials to assist in training equipment operators in the safe and effective use of highway maintenance equipment. It includes 18 units of instruction covering the large equipment used in maintenance operations. Each unit of instruction consists of eight basic components: performance objectives, teacher activities, information sheets (content essential for meeting the cognitive objectives), assignment sheets (applications of knowledges that are prerequisites to skill development), job sheets (procedures to complete a manipulative or psychomotor skill), transparency masters, tests, and test and assignment sheet answers. Eighteen pieces of equipment are included: motor graders, asphalt distributor, rollers, dozer, backhoe, cranes and attachments, cherry picker (aerial bucket truck), spreader (self-propelled), mud jack, asphalt laydown machine, asphalt recycling machines, bridge snooper, snow blower, striping and painting equipment, pugmill, vacuum sweepers, crack-sealing equipment, and rigging. For each piece of equipment, this manual covers uses in highway maintenance, controls, attachments, procedures for effective operation, inspection and service, basic operating procedures, typical maintenance operations, and safety procedures. The materials are suitable for students who are new employees, seasoned operators upgrading skills, or skilled operators reviewing procedures and using these materials for reference. (YLB)
