EQUIPMENT INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS.
attachments that may be used to accommodate different
The attachments include cutoff shoes to reduce the
paving width from 8 to 6 ft (2,4 to 1,8 m), auger and
fender extensions to expand the paving width to 12 ft
(3,7 m) and the auger and fender extensions with screed
extensions to further expand the paving width to 16 ft
When installing cutoff shoes or extensions, both cutoff
shoes or an equal amount of extension must be added to
each side of the paving machine.
Plate spacers are installed between the
screed plate and screed frame to ensure
a smooth and level asphalt mat is laid.
Maintaining plate spacer(s) in position
any time the screed plate extension is
removed or installed is critical to a
smooth asphalt mat and prevention of
screed plate alignment.
When installing the screed extensions, extreme care
must be taken to ensure that the plate spacer(s) on the
screed plate are not allowed to fall off of the screed plate
during removal. If the plate spacers are not maintained
on the studs, a full screed alignment must be performed
by Unit Maintenance. Also, ensure that the plate spacers
on the screed plate extension are kept on the same
studs during installation since these plate spacers were
installed during screed plate alignment.
A complete listing of attachments are found in Appendix
B, Components of the End Item (COEI). The
procedures for installing equipment will address one side
of the paving machine only. The procedure must be
performed again on the opposite side. The tools
required to install the equipment are located in the
toolbox on the paving machine and listed in the Basic
Issue Items (BII), Appendix B. Refer to paragraph 3.3.1
for toolbox access instructions.
Equipment installation instructions are
the same for both the left and right sides
of the paving machine. Illustrations
show installation on the right side of the
Cutoff Shoe Installation. To pave widths of 6 to
8 ft (1,8 to 2,4 m), one set of 1 ft (0,3 m) cutoff shoes
must be installed on the paving machine. The cutoff
shoes mount on the inside of each endgate, and are
supported by a chain fastened to the strikeoff plate.
Start paving machine per paragraph 2.10.
Place throttle control switch to "MAX" position.
Place screed lift switch to the up, RAISE
position. Raise screed fully up.
Fully extend both left and right extension screeds
per paragraph 2.19.
Place wood support blocks under each end of
main screed. Wood supports must be 9 in.
