· The following instructions are intended to provide basic procedures on properly loading scraper. Additional
information on scraper loading techniques can be found in WP 0006 00, Advanced Operation and Operator
Tips. BEFORE loading scraper, read the instructions in WP 0006 00, as well as these procedures.
· Ensure that cutting edge on scraper bowl is properly adjusted by Unit Maintenance prior to beginning loading
operations. Refer to Machine Services and Adjustments in WP 0006 00 for further guidance.
· To provide maximum efficiency, a supervisor may be used to coordinate 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 elim-
inating the need for turning loaded machine around.
Ensure ejector is moved to rear of bowl before beginning loading pass.
Open apron part way.
When arriving at cut, reduce travel speed by using service brakes or retarder. Transmission will downshift to 2nd gear
automatically. When transmission shifts into 2nd gear, push down on transmission hold pedal.
