The rear deck of the asphalt tanker should be 7 feet from the flange of the main frame on the drum mixer.
Disconnect the asphalt tanker from the transport tractor.
Connect the hydraulic power pack.
Use the hydraulic leveling jacks to raise the tanker.
Lower the screw jacks and install the pads.
Extend the screw jacks.
Retract the leveling jacks until the asphalt tanker is supported on the screw jacks.
Check the chassis to see that it is higher on the front than on the rear. See figure 2-18. Check the
level side to side.
If adjustment is required use the leveling jacks to raise the chassis and adjust the screw jacks as
Retract the leveling jacks.
Disconnect the hydraulic power pack.
