Disconnect all control and power cables from the control van.Wrap the
cables onto the brackets provided.
Lower the hopper extensions into the horizontal position. Tighten the
bolts to hold them in this position for transport.
Place the calibration tank in bin #1. Secure the tank to the brackets
provided within the bin. Place the top A frame into bin #2 for transport.
Fasten it to the brackets provided in the bin.
Lower the ladders into transport position and secure with bolts.
Remove the discharge hood from the feed conveyor at the head pulley by
removing the bolts. Use a crane to remove the hood and store on the
front of the trailer.
Remove the belt scraper and secure at the front of the trailer.
Using a crane remove the two bolts securing the ramp-up plates. Raise
the plates into transport position. Raise the plates until the top is retained
by tabs on the hopper legs. Secure with the bolts just removed. Repeat
the process until all four plates are secured in the transport position.
Connect the hydraulic power pack.
Remove tension on the feed conveyor belt by adjusting the take-up at the
tail pulley to obtain maximum belt slack.
Remove conveyor fold locking pins.
Remove tension on the support cable . Slowly retract the two lower
cylinders by operating the gathering conveyor control valve (the conveyor
will pivot at the trailer and the head end will be raised.
Using the fold cylinders mounted in the center of the conveyor, fold the
conveyor downward. Do this slowly watching the head end to ensure the
feed conveyor does not hit the screen deck or feed conveyor trailer.
Check to ensure the wire ropes used to support the conveyor when
deployed will not interfere with the positioning the conveyor in the final
Slowly retract the lower cylinders alternate with the upper cylinders on the
gathering conveyor and retract the conveyor.
When both sets of cylinders are nearly retracted, the conveyor frame will
be at a point to fit between the transport lugs.
