1. FUNCTIONS AND DESCRIPTION
The PAKROL™ range has been designed to handle and move loads on the floor. The moving of the skate and trolley skate is done manually by the operator at a very slow speed (< 5 km/h). The floor shall be flat and resistant to the load applied. To make the moving in a safe condition, the floor shall be built with concrete or tiled. Clay floors are inappropriate.
2. INSTALLATION AND OPERATION
TO OFFER THE BEST LOAD STABILITY AND MAKE ITS GUIDING EASIER , WE RECOMMEND TO SHARE THE LOAD SURFACE ON TWO SKATES AND ONE TROLLEY SKATE FOR GUIDING.
Prior to place the PAKROL™ skates under the load, check that the product you have received is in a good order mainly for the running wheels. Then fit the handle to the trolley skate with the two bolts. As an option, we can supply the connecting bar between the two skates, if our supply includes this equipment, then you need to bolt this connecting bar to the frame of each skate.
INSTALLATION OF THE PAKROL™ SYSTEM
With a rack and pinion or hydraulic jack, lift the load to a sufficient height to be able to position the skates and trolley skates.
Secure the load with wedges to prevent any fall of the load when positioning the PAKROL™.
Place the skates and trolley skate in such a way that the load is correctly positioned in full stability. (We advise you to use a connecting bar between the two skates to ensure a reliable guiding when moving).
Remove the wedges and lower the load to be positioned on the skates and trolley skate. Before moving, ensure that the load is well balanced.
The guiding of the load will be done with the handle of the trolley skate.
To remove the PAKROL™ system after moving the load, lift the load with jacks and secure with wedges.
When storing the PAKROL™ system, we recommend to place them in the original packing. In any case, the skates and trolley skates shall be stored upside down on the rubber cover without load. During transport operation, we recommend the operator to use the manipulating handle.
4. WARNING AGAINST HAZARDOUS OPERATIONS
Warnings against hazardous operations have been described in the previous sections, however, we would draw your attention to certain operations which are dangerous:
DO NOT USE the PAKROL™ products over their Working Load Limit or without their identification load plate.
DO NOT MOVE loads with people on.
DO NOT ALLOW people to stay on the skates and trolley skates.
DO NOT USE skates or trolley skates which are not in a good condition.
DO NOT SHOCK the product as impacts could damaged or deform the frame.
DO NOT USE the PAKROL™ products on a floor which resistance is inferior to the load impact.
DO NO PULL OR PUSH the load placed on skates with a motorized device or a forklift.
DO NOT MOVE a load on a sloped floor.
DO NOT LEAVE the load fall on the skates.
DO NO PLACE the PAKROL™ skates under the load if this load has not been correctly secured with suitable wedges.
All the control and maintenance operations on the PAKROL™ skates and trolleys skates shall be done without load and by a qualified technician. For repairs, original parts supplied from TRACTEL® shall be used.
Maintenance operations are minimal on these products, however we recommend the following inspection once a month :
Check that bolts of the wheels axles are correctly tightened.
Check that wheels flanges are in good working conditions (no wear or cracks).
Check if the rotating plate of the trolley skate moves freely.
