OPERATION UNDER USUAL CONDITIONS - CONTINUED
PICKING UP WINDROWS
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.
Partially open apron.
Lower cutting edge until it just clears the surface.
Repeat as required until windrow is removed.
