Section II. SERVICE UPON RECEIPT
UNLOADING AND UNPACKING
a. Inspect the shipping crate for damage that may have been caused during shipment. Report
any damage on DD Form 6, Packaging Improvement Report.
b. Remove all tiedowns or blocking that secure the compressor to the carrier.
c. A forklift truck, or other suitable hoist must be used when removing the crated compressor

Injury to personnel or damage to equipment could occur
from improper hoisting. Hoist the load slowly to avoid
tearing out lifting eye assemblies, slipping slings or load
shift. Do not jerk the load or swing it from side-to-side
when hoisting. This places additional stress on hoisting
components which can cause failure and loss of load. Be
sure hoisting equipment is on solid footing and is suitable
for the size of the load. Watch boom angle and overhead
clearance when hoisting.
d. Place the air compressor as close to the point of installation as possible.
e . Remove the crate from the base, being careful not to damage the air compressor.
f. Remove box banded to the bottom of the crate. Check contents of the box against t h e
packing list. If packing list is not available, check contents against components of End Item
g. Remove the four nuts and lockwashers that secure the air compressor to the bottom of
the crate. Using a forklift truck, remove the air compressor.
