  4. Place the Crane suitably by the side of the trailer.

The boom is 

  • Kept around 75 degrees angle, and the DG set is lifted with wire rope slings secured on the DG set as per the maker’s direction on one side and over the crane hooks another side.
  • Unloading and shifting ground for the DG set should be properly Level off. Mark the approach for the easy movement of Crane and trailer after levelling the ground properly.
  • Tighten the Wire slings to observe any unbalance on slings and to be adjusted if necessary.
  • Lift the DG set at about 1-2 inches above from trailer to observe any unbalance of the total unit, and lower back for any adjustments to be carried out for (positioning of the Crane, tools and wire sling, packing at the jack base, etc.)
  • Move off the trailer by withdrawing the wedges once DG set is lifted about 6 inches from the trailer base.
  • Place the DG set on the ground slowly as soon as the trailer is cleared from the spot.
  • Lift the DG set and arrange the level and place the wooden sleepers over the ground. Place the DG set over the wooden sleepers.
  • Raise the DG set to the required level with the help of the Crane and add more wooden sleepers for leveling in stages.
  •  Finally, insert and place the suitable rollers for shifting the DG set near the engine foundation.
