Due to the physical size and weight of the Drinking Water Discharge Winch System, shipping recommendations
will be limited to barge/ship and/or trucks. If, per chance, the system is to be air shipped, the major requirement would
be to remove all hydraulic fluid from the system.
The basic envelope dimensions of the winch are:
26,000 lbs, w/o hose and connectors
The foot-print of the winch is 144 inches X 144 inches and the bearing surface is 4,352 square inches. Whenever the
winch is being transported, the following procedure should be followed:
Investigate bearing load area relative to shipping mode. Area load could be decreased by using doubler
Handle winch as per suggestions presented in Section 8.1: Handling Techniques and Limitation.
Secure load to transport surface. Preferred method is to weld the bolt-down brackets to the transport
surface. Alternate method would be to secure the base from side motion and secure tie-down lines from
the four lifting points.
