3-2 BOOM INSTALLATION

NOTE: Both boom assemblies are assembled/installed the same way. The following procedure is for the left-side boom assembly. Booms and struts are number and color-coded: right is green and red is left. The connect points referred to in this procedure are the places on the boom assembly where struts and booms with like colors and numbers are to be joined. Strut tabs must point up. Nozzles must face rear of bucket (depending on the type of nozzle). End of strut should be at 15o angle to centerline of boom. NOTE: Refer to page 8-12 thru 8-15 for part numbers A. Connect points 1 and 2: Install two struts (1 and 2) at top of bucket leg weldments and secure to strut anchors (3 and 4) using two quickrelease pins(5 and 6). B. Install outboard boom weldment (7) on center boom weldment (8) of pump and crosstube assembly. Secure by closing kamlock ears over end of boom weldment. DO NOT install clamp (9) at this time. C. Connect point 3: Using upward pressure, connect other ends of struts (1 and 2) to outboard boom weldment (7) at connect point 3 using quick-release pin (10). D. Connect points 4: Attach struts (11 and 12) to outboard boom weldment (7) at connect point 4 using quick-release pin (13). E. Connect points 5 and 6: Attach opposite ends of struts (11 and 12) to eyebolts on cross strut (14) at connect points 5 and 6 using quickrelease pins (15 and 16). F. Connect point 10: Install outboard boom weldment (7). Secure by closing kamlock ears over connection. DO NOT install clamp (18) over ears at this time. G.
