27. Deploy A-frame walkways and ladders (launch beam build configuration).
LADDERS will not deploy correctly.
♦ Ensure all straps are released.
♦ Ensure upper pivot is secure and not deformed. Report any
deformation/damage to maintenance.
♦ Ensure that the rung hooks are not deformed. Report deformation/damage
♦ Check ladder for deformity. Report deformation/damage to maintenance.
FOLDING WALKWAYS will not deploy correctly.
♦ Check that the R clip is removed.
♦ Check that the rubber catches (there are two) are released.
♦ Check folding walkway hinge points for deformation/obstruction. Clear any
obstructions. Report any deformation/damage to maintenance.
28. Deploy crane and crane spreader pads.
Ensure that all transport pins have been removed.
Check fuses in crane control box, replace as required. Refer to Chapter 10
MANUAL OPERATION OF CRANE. WITH THE CRANE IN THE MANUAL
OVERRIDE CONDITION THE OVERLOAD SAFETY SYSTEM IS INOPERATIVE,
SHOULD THE CRANE BE INADVERTENTLY OVERLOADED CATASTROPHIC
FAILURE OF THE CRANE MAY OCCUR. DEATH OR SEVERE INJURY COULD
RESULT IF THIS INSTRUCTION IS NOT HEEDED.
If crane will not deploy normally operate the crane manual override lever at
crane operating lever console. Operate crane with great care.
29. Position and unstrap flatrack V1 and T1 on build site.
30. Check and level A-frame using A-frame stabilizer legs.
Ensure A-frame stabilizer leg pin is NOT inserted through the transportation
Check that A-frame pin is correctly positioned in the stabilizer leg and the A-
frame is sat on the pin.
Check A-frame stabilizer leg cylinder mounting points to ensure pins are in
place and secure.
Check for significant distortion of A-frame leg and stabilizer for damage.
Report any distortion/damage to maintenance.
31. Set beam angle.
Is BEAM ANGLE selected on the chest pack?
Has the chest pack right hand joystick been moved rearward to lower the far
Check for any signs of twisting at the launch frame to A-frame upper
transverse beam, this would indicate a seizure of the center pivot bushing.
Report any signs of seizure to maintenance.
32. Remove launch beam final stop.
Remove R clip from launch beam final stop pin.
Is the pinch roller ball valve closed (located on the Launch Frame Pinch
Roller Stowing Manifold)? If NO, close pinch roller ball valve.
Using BEAM DRIVE mode on the chest pack, move the chest pack right
hand joystick forward or rearward to move the launch beam forward or
rearward slowly as required to remove the final stop pin.
