Become familiar with the normal operation of  the  tamper.  Damage  to  equipment,  extensive  re- pairs, and downtime can be avoided by an alert op- erator who can detect problems in early stages and help Unit Maintenance correct them before they be- come  serious. b. Operation. CAUTION DO NOT operate tamper on hard, unyielding surfaces. Failure to follow this caution may re- sult in damage to tamper. (1) (2) (3) 2-6. a. b. c. d. During operation, guide the tamper,  but allow the tamper to do the work. Bearing down on the handle is not necessary and limits the shoe jump. The tamper moves forward in rapid jumps on level  surfaces.  On  uneven  surfaces  or  inclines  it may be necessary to rock the handle slightly to assist the tamper to move forward. Always guide the tamper so that the whole shoe, not just the front or back edges, does the impacting. STOPPING TAMPER. NOTE Refer to Figure 2-2,  Stopping  Tamper,  for steps a through d.
