RAIL TIEDOWN PROCEDURES ON A DODX RAIL CAR - CONTINUED
966H WITH BROOM ATTACHMENT AND FORK CARRIAGE/5-YARD BUCKET - CONTINUED
CAU T I ON
The broom cannot be transported by itself; it must always be attached to the 966H Wheel Loader since it
does not have tiedown provisions.
The 966H can also be shipped without the cab, if necessary, to accommodate low tunnels or overpasses. Remove the cab
from the machine in accordance with the instructions WP 0024 00. The machine's exhaust stack and rear handrails must
also be removed. The front handrails must temporarily be removed in order to remove the front cab retaining bolts; the
front handrails should be reinstalled after removal of the upper cab assembly. It is recommended that plugs be installed
on the electrical interconnect cables (4 each) to prevent damage during shipment along with taping the exhaust port. The
rear handrails and exhaust can be placed and secured in the cab using large plastic wire ties. Ensure the cab components
are protected from damage during this task.
Place a 3/4 in. sheet of plywood on the deck of the rail car and place the upper cab on it.
Secure the upper cab to the rail car using the rail tiedown chains (4 each) and the tiedown provisions on the top of the
cab (Figure 4).
Ensure that the parking brake is engaged and the gear selector is in N (NEUTRAL). The cab and machine are now ready
to ship by rail.
