The following instructions are intended to provide basic procedures on properly loading scraper. Addi-
tional information on scraper loading techniques can be found in WP 0006 00, Advanced Operation and Oper-
. Before loading
scraper, read the instructions
in WP 0006 00,
as these procedures.
Ensure that cutting edge on scraper bowl and clearance between cutting edge and elevator flights have
been properly adjusted by Unit Maintenance prior to beginning loading operations. Refer to Machine Ser-
vices and Adjustments
in WP 0006 00 for further guidance.
To provide maximum efficiency, a supervisor may be used to control loading operation.
Refer to WP 0004 00 for the location and operation of controls.
Position machine near end of previous loading pass. Provide some overlap for a smooth cut area.
Loading is most efficient when done on a level grade or a slight uphill grade. If cut area is on a grade,
load uphill whenever possible.
Load machine in direction of dump (fill) area, if possible. This reduces work cycle time by reducing travel time and
eliminating the need for turning loaded machine around.
Ensure ejector is moved to rear of bowl before beginning loading pass.
When arriving at cut, reduce travel speed by using service brakes and by downshifting to 2nd or 1st gear.
