Screw Jacks: Two or more pair of heavy adjustable screw legs with bearing pads which support the trailer while in the
The trailer is lowered or raised by the manual landing jacks or hydraulic jacks. The screw jacks only provide support. The
screw jacks are not intended to raise or lower the trailer. Levelling of the trailer can best be accomplished by lowering the
front of the trailer on the landing jacks until it is slightly lower than the rear end of the trailer. Position and adjust the rear
screw jacks. Raise the kingpin end of the trailer slightly above level and position and adjust the front screw jacks. Retract
the landing jacks so that the trailer is supported by the front and rear screw jacks.
The M081 Asphalt Mixing Plant is equipped with hardware storage boxes. Each component of the Asphalt Mixing Plant
has at least one of these boxes. They are intended to store hardware not used while the plant is operating but required
when it is in the transport mode. They also serve to store hardware not required while in the transport mode but required
when operating. Use these boxes for the intended purpose. If hardware is required but not available on a component,
check the hardware box to determine if the hardware has been stored there. The term level as used in these procedures
refers to achieving a level indication when the level is positioned on the levelling pads or on a flat section of the chassis.
Match markings: All cable ends and electrical receptacles are marked with
corresponding numbers. All components stored for transport are match marked.
It is essential to match all markings during assembly.
