Regulation establishes requirements for the movement of HHG and specifies that hazardous materials are not
authorized for military airlift. One exception is that engine power-driven equipment (motorcycle, moped,
lawnmower, boat, snowmobile, etc.) may be transported as HHG under the following requirements:
Completely drain all fuel.
Run until the engine stalls.
Drain all oil and cooling fluids.
Allow fuel tanks and lines to remain open for at least 24 hours prior to pickup.
Disconnect nonspillable gel-type batteries and tape the ends to prevent short circuit. Batteries may remain
in the equipment holder, but ensure they are firmly secured and remain upright in the shipping container.
Do not ship batteries with acid or alkali.
Engine power-driven equipment prepared in this manner are not regulated by this manual. A Shippers
Declaration for Dangerous Goods is not required.
