Remove the hardware securing the shipping/storage container cover to the base.
Then, using the four-point lifting sling and hook block (main hoist), hoist and
remove the shipping/storage container cover and place it beside the base, farthest
from the crane.
The shipping/storage container is to be unloaded at a 15 foot (4.6
m) crane radius and less than 60 feet (18.3 m) of boom length.
If not installed, install the headache ball, stored in the crane tool box, on the
auxiliary hoist wire rope. This line is called the pile line. Then remove the four-part
hook block from the main hoist wire rope. This line is called the hammer line.
Temporarily attach a weight (ground-release shackle) to the hammer line (main
hoist) wedge and socket to prevent slack in the line.
Using the quick-set feature, change the Load Moment Indicator (LMI) configuration
to Rear Hoist and Two (2) Parts of Line.
Use caution when removing equipment tie-down straps in the
shipping/storage container to prevent sudden movement of
equipment caused by equipment shifting during transport.
Release the equipment tie-down straps in the shipping/storage container.
Remove the ten-pound sledge hammer, steel bar with hickey, 36-inch peavey, and
cheater bar (bundled together). Also remove the ground fueling hand pump and
four 4x4-inch wood blocks.
Remove the two rough-terrain wheels.
Remove two tool boxes.
Attach a nylon lifting sling to the spotter slide. Then, using the pile line (aux. hoist),
hoist and remove the spotter slide from the sheet pile adapter and install it on the
Attach a wire rope lifting sling with a 3/4-inch shackle to the center lifting lug on the
spotter. Then, using the pile line (aux. hoist), hoist and remove the spotter and
place it along the left side of the crane.
Attach two nylon lifting slings to the spotter storage support. Then, using the pile
line (aux. hoist), hoist and remove the spotter storage support and place it along
the right side of the crane in front of the shipping/storage container.
Attach two nylon lifting slings to the center of each lead section (looped through the
holes in the sides). Using the pile line (aux. hoist), hoist and remove each lead
section. Lay each lead section in line with the crane on two wood blocks spaced
three feet (0.9 m) from each end with the dowel ends of the lead sections facing
the crane. The top lead section should be placed a few feet from the rear of the
crane. Turn each lead section over onto its side to aid in assembly. Ensure the
hammer side with the larger tubular rails on each lead section face in the same
