This work package describes how to prepare the machine for highway transport, how to load and unload machine from
trailer, and how to return machine to operational configuration after highway transport.
Machine must be configured to meet highway transport height requirements.
Before transporting machine, check with proper authorities to obtain any necessary permits.
Ensure cooling system of machine has proper antifreeze protection if being transported to a colder climate (WP 0017).
Hearing protection is required if within 20 ft (6 m) of an operating machine. Failure to follow this
warning could result in hearing loss.
Components removed and installed during this procedure are very heavy. Use assistance, caution,
and follow safe work practices when handling them. Lifting equipment available at the staging area
must be used. Stand clear of frame articulation area when machine is operating. There is no
clearance for personnel in this area when machine turns. Crushing could occur, resulting in injury
or death to personnel.
Throughout procedure, be aware of potential hazards from attachment operating zones. Stand clear of attachment operat-
ing zones when machine is maneuvering.
Ground guide assistance is mandatory when driving machine on or off trailer.
