CRUSH HAZARD. DEATH OR SEVERE INJURY COULD RESULT IF PERSONNEL STAND
BETWEEN THE SUSPENDED LOAD AND THE MODULE LOCATED ON THE LAUNCH
Remove the R clips and bridge pins from the jaws of the 1st parallel module and ramp
module and place them on the tail lift.
If due to the angle of the ramp module, the lower jaws connect first. Align the jaws and
the jaw alignment system. Jib forward with the crane so that the module rotates around
the jaws until the dowels are aligned. For further information refer to Chapter 3
Connecting Modules Where the Jaws Contact First.
It should be noted that the parallel modules are interchangeable and reversible when
connecting to each other and ramp modules.
Align the dowels of the 1st parallel module and the far bank ramp module.
Extreme caution should be observed when raising the crane while shootbolts are inserted.
Damage to the bridge can occur.
Insert the shootbolts to connect the two modules, ensuring that they are locked.
Disconnect the tag line nearest the tail lift.
Operate the lower controls on the crane and locate the birds beaks on the bush
resilient mounts. Continue lowering until the module lifting slings just goes slack.
