Uncrating the Unit
WARNING: Thermo King requires a 3 point lifting bar to safely lift and install units. A lifting bar can be made from the drawings provided.
WARNING: Eyebolts must be forged steel and minimum M12 (1/2 in.) diameter.
WARNING: Use only locking hooks to attach to the eyebolts (Detail A) to prevent damage to the unit or possible personal injury.
WARNING: The attaching point shown in Detail B, below, is not a major lifting point. It is used only to help maintain the unit in a level position during installation (Detail B).
Carefully remove the top, sides and front crate members. Remove the top screen (if equipped).
Remove the bottom panel.
Install two lifting eyebolts into the holes at the rear frame rails, install nuts, and tighten securely.
Attach the three point lifting bar securely to each of the three eyebolts and slightly raise the unit.
Remove the base of the crate by removing the eight skid bracket screws (Detail C).
Remove the two rear members of the crate and lift unit up from base approximately 304.8 mm (12.0 in.) (Detail C).
Remove the four mounting bolts securing the two upright members to the unit (Detail C). Unit is now ready to install.
