Figure 4.2 Tail Lift Pendant
To prevent damage to the rear marker light bracket it is essential that the far bank support
bearing pads be removed from their storage positions on the far bank support before any
attempt is made to extend the far bank support. Failure to comply with this instruction will
result in damage to the rear marker light bracket.
Remove far bank support bearing pads from their stowed position on the far bank
support, and place in a convenient position.
It may be necessary to manually swing the far bank support to engage the stirrups on the
tail lift platform.
On the tail lift pendant, operate the SWING UP switch to raise the tail lift platform.
Make sure the lift hydraulic cylinders extend and raise the tail lift platform until the
bottom beam of the far bank support engages with the stirrups attached to the tail lift.
Release the SWING UP switch when the tail lift structure supports and lightly
compresses the far bank support.
Retract the lower shootbolt from the far bank support, and on the tail lift pendant,
operate the SWING DOWN switch to lower the tail lift platform. Make sure the tail lift
hydraulic cylinders operate and lower the tail lift platform, supporting the far bank
support until its fully extended position is reached.
