Ensure all side rail bolts, washers, and bushings are installed.
(e) Draw the side rail into proper alignment by fully tightening the forth bolt from each end of
both side rails, using a ¾-inch socket or wrench. All other side rail bolts may then be
tightened, working from the center toward each end of the platform.
(f) Using a 9/16-inch socket or wrench, fully tighten the roller pad bolts (2) and (3) initially
installed in step (9) above. This completes the major assembly of the dual row airdrop
e. Turning the Platform Assembly.
The platform weighs approximately 89-pounds per foot of length.
To avoid injury to personnel or damage to surrounding equipment,
use extreme caution in lifting and handling. Never walk near or
crawl beneath raised platform. If control of platform is lost,
immediately alert other personnel.
In turning the platform over, be careful not to damage the side rails.
Short pieces of lumber (e.g., two-by-fours or plywood) should be
used to prevent the rail edges from contacting a concrete floor or
other hard surface while the platform is being turned over.
To turn the platform upright, use two clevises (1) to attach a 3-foot suspension sling (2) to
two adjacent bushings (3) near the center of one of the side rails.
