Extreme caution should be observed when raising the crane while shootbolts are inserted.
Damage to the bridge can occur
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 go slack.
Insert the pins to connect the home bank ramp to the parallel module and secure the
pins with the R clips. Outer pins from outside in, inner pins inside out.
Providing the four slings are slack, the guide system on the parallel modules will ensure
correct alignment for pin insertion.
If the pins cannot be inserted, the weight of the module may be taken by the crane until the
pins can be inserted.
Disconnect the tag line nearest the tail lift.
On the tail lift pendant, operate the LIFT DOWN switch and lower the tail lift platform
and the pinning operatives clear of the path of the parallel module.
Disconnect the bridge module lifter from the lifting points on the home bank ramp
Operate the lift and traverse controls on the crane and, position the bridge module
lifter near flatrack LVT.
Withdraw the shootbolts and close the arms on module lifter, insert shootbolts.
Disconnect the bridge module lifter after stowing on LVT flatrack.
To prevent damage to the lifting slings it is important that care is exercised when
connecting the slings to the crane hook. Ensure that the sling is fitted correctly and does
not become trapped by the hook safety clip.
Attach the launch beam lifter to the crane hook in preparation for launch beam
Lowering the Bridge
Make sure the POWER and the bridge drive mode selected (LEVEL, HIGH, or LOW)
captions on the chest pack display illuminate.
Move the right hand joystick on the chest pack forward to boom the bridge forward.
