TRANSPORTING BY ROAD TRANSPORTING When transporting the machine on public roads, be sure to first be aware of and then, follow all local regulations. 1. Before transporting the machine on a trailer, check the width, height, length, and weight of the trailer with the machine loaded. 2. Investigate the conditions of the route to be traveled, such as dimensional limits, weight limits, and traffic regulations, beforehand. In some cases, disassemble the machine to bring it within dimensional limits, or weight limits of local rules and regulations. TRAILER LOADING/UNLOADING Always load and unload the machine on a firm level surface. WARNING: Be sure to use a loading dock or a ramp when loading/unloading the machine. Ramp/ Loading Dock 1. Thoroughly clean the ramp and flatbed. Dirty flatbed ramps contaminated with oil, mud, or ice can be slippery and dangerous. 2. Wedge the trailer wheels with blocks so that the trailer does not move. 3. Ramps must be sufficient in length, width, and strength. Secure the ramp with an inclination of less than 15 degrees. 4. Loading docks must be sufficient in length, width, and strength. Inclination of the loading docks must be less than 15 degrees. 5. When loading/unloading the machine on a trailer, be careful not to allow the blade to come in contact with the ramps or loading docks. 6-1
