OPERATION UNDER USUAL CONDITIONS - CONTINUED
PICKING UP WINDROWS
Bucket loading into scraper bowl may damage elevator. It may also result in excessive spillage.
When working with other construction equipment, the scraper should NOT be used as a dump truck.
A windrow is a row of excess material that must be removed. Typically, a dozer or motor grader creates
the windrow, pushes it off to the side, and leaves it, to be loaded into a dump truck by a wheel loader.
Instead of bucket loading with an excavator, wheel loader or dozer, use these machines to create a windrow.
Then use scraper to pick up the windrow.
Pick Up Windrows.
Configure machine for land planing operations--i.e. no teeth or stinger.
Approach windrow in 1st or 2nd gear.
Operate elevator at appropriate speed for material to be loaded.
Lower bowl until cutting edge just clears the surface.
Repeat as required until windrow is removed.
