DANGER:PINCH POINT.
Do not stand in the working area between the conveyors when slewing either
the conveyor boom or feed conveyor or the potential for personal injury could
occur.
To ensure the safe and proper operation of the Telebelt, follow these tips:
• It is best to run belts only as fast as the job requires. For example, it is not recommended to run the
belts at 900 ft./minute (274.3 m/minute) to pour walls (unless high slump/wet concrete requires it).
The belts should be run fast enough for optimum production without causing rock bounce. Refer to
the belt speeds and capacities charts in Section 1 and working speeds in Section 6.
• Spray areas of machine which are subject to concrete splatter with an adhesion-resistant agent. This
will prevent concrete from sticking to the machine and make cleanup easier.
• Maintain hopper and transfer skirt lengths so they can contain material being placed without causing
the following restrictions:
• If skirt length is too long, capacity is decreased.
• If skirt length is too short, the skirt will leak.

A820143_02_0702K Putzmeister America, Inc. 2–1


Operation

• Ensure that scrapers are properly maintained. Rotate scraper blades that are rounded and not working
properly. Replace blades after all four edges are rounded.
• The operator should stay as close as possible to the hopper to control material supply and observe
machine operation.
• Ensure that adequate clearance is always maintained between the feed and conveyor boom.
• Use the Telebelt set-up label (shown in Ill. 2-1) affixed to the machine as a quick reference guide in
addition to reading all relevant instructions in this manual to assist in safely setting-up the machine:

Operation

2.1.1 Cold Weather Startup


To operate the Telebelt during cold weather, perform the following steps:
1. Ensure that the hydraulic oil cooler fan is turned off by switching the hydraulic oil cooler fan switch
(located on the electric control box; item 10 of Illustration 2-6) to the ‘off’ position.
2. Engage PTO’s and run hydraulic oil pumps for 15 minutes to circulate and warm hydraulic oil.
3. Start conveyor belts at a reduced speed and run for a few minutes while gradually increasing belt
speed. Monitor the filter gauges making sure they do not read in the red zone. Reduce conveyor speed
if gauges approach the red zone.
4. With belts running, test each function for proper operation.
5. When the hydraulic oil has reached 40° F (4.4° C), turn the hydraulic oil cooler fan switch to the ‘on’
position. The oil cooler fan is now set to come on ‘automatically’ when the temperature of the hydrau-
lic oil reaches approximately 131° F (55° C).
6. Proceed with normal machine operation.

2.2 Pre-Operational Checks


At the job site and before operating machine, perform the following final checks to ensure the safe operation
of machine:
CAUTION: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE.
Operating the Telebelt without air pressure on the hydraulic reservoir or
insufficient oil can cause damage to the hydraulic system.

1. Monitor the following machine gauges to ensure that pressures, temperatures, and fluid levels are at
the recommended readings:
• Air pressure is turned on to hydraulic oil tank.
• Hydraulic oil level and temperature. If oil temperature is below 40° F, perform “Cold Weather Star-
tup” procedure.
• Water tank level.
• Truck fuel level.
• Hydraulic filter gauges
• High pressure filter ‘pop-up’ indicators
• All vehicle gauges
2. Inspect area around machine and ensure that ground is capable of supporting machine. Look for clues
of possible ground defects such as:
• Recently moved or piled soil
• Leaking source of water
• Utility work (electric or water)
• Vent for underground tank

A820143_02_0702K Putzmeister America, Inc. 2–3


Operation

3. Determine job site strategy with job superintendent, based on the following information:
• Progression of pour (where pour is to start).
• Access (where machine is able to reach).
• Access for ready-mix trucks.
• Moves necessary to complete pour.
• Minimum slewing radius of the Telebelt conveyor.
• Machine dimensions and weight (refer to Specifications section)
NOTE:
As a rule, the site management determines the set-up site for the machine and
prepares the site accordingly. However, the machine operator is responsible for
setting up the machine safely. The site must be suitable for machine access and
set-up. The ground must be level enough for outriggers to be able to level the
machine. Inspect the proposed site carefully and reject the set-up site if there is any
doubts about the safety of the site.

4. Ensure that all personnel have the proper tools required for the job and are wearing the appropriate per-
sonal protective equipment.
5. Ensure that all personnel can communicate with each other by using the following hand signals or
other means of communication.

2.3 Hand Signals


CAUTION: SAFETY HAZARD.
Establish a set of hand signals such as the American Society of Mechanical
Engineers (ASME) recommended signals (shown in Illustration 2-2) with a
designated spotter whenever the visibility of the machine (front, sides, and
rear), telescopic boom, conveyors, or end hose is obstructed.

6. High pressure filter housing with “pop-up” indicator on its top – When the pop-up button appears,
push it back down. If it will not stay down at normal operating temperature (104° F / 40° C), replace
the filter element. The bypass for this filter goes to the hydraulic tank. Operating a machine with a fil-
ter in bypass will cause the boom and outrigger functions to slow down. This filter is in line between
the boom pump and the boom control valves.
7. Suction filters and gauges – When machine is turned off, these gauges should normally be in the Green
Area. However, if the truck’s air supply is low the gauge may also show in the red area. Always check
truck air pressure before changing filters. Under operating conditions, replace filters when the gauges
are in the Red Area (as shown in Illustration 2-4):

2.5 Boom and Outrigger Control Valves


DANGER:TIPPING HAZARD.
Do not attempt to reposition any outrigger unless the main conveyor telescope
is fully retracted, lowered, and centered to the front or rear of the truck.

NOTE:
The boom/outriggers/feeder PTO must be engaged or the boom and outrigger valves
will not work. This PTO engages a piston-type pump that provides hydraulic fluid for
the outrigger, boom and feeder functions.
Normally, the electrical controls are used to position both conveyors and the
outriggers. In the event of an electrical failure, the main conveyor, feed conveyor, and
outrigger control valves can be operated manually to position the conveyors and
outriggers.

2.6 Electric Control Box


CAUTION: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE.
Whenever boom functions, conveyors, or accessories are operated, 3/4 to full
engine RPM should be used. Engine speed should not be used to “feather”
operating functions. Operating at low engine speeds can cause lack of
lubrication and overheating; resulting in damage to hydraulic components and
PTO drives. DO NOT use foot throttle to exceed maximum PTO throttle settings.

NOTE:
Maximum PTO RPM settings vary according to truck and transmission options.
Engine speed can be adjusted using any of the following throttle controls:

• Cruise control in truck cab.


• Throttle control switch on the electric control box
• Throttle control switch on the cable or radio remote control
When the cable remote control or radio remote control transmitter is not in use, it

2.13 Outriggers
DANGER:TIPPING HAZARD.
Never attempt to reposition any outrigger leg unless the main conveyor is fully
retracted, lowered, and centered to the front or rear of the vehicle

CAUTION: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE.


Each outrigger leg can be raised or lowered by using its built-in outrigger up/
down switch or the appropriate outrigger stack valve. Use caution when raising
or lowering outriggers over fenders. Outriggers move quickly and can crush
fenders. Ensure that outrigger switches are kept clean, sand and debris in the
switch can cause it to stick. Ensure that outrigger drain holes (Illustration 2-18)
are kept free of debris.

NOTE:
When the radio (or cable) remote outrigger switch is activated, the outrigger up/down
control switches become active. When the radio/cable remote outrigger switch is
deactivated, the outrigger up/down control switches are locked out to prevent
accidental raising or lowering of the outriggers.

A820143_02_0702K Putzmeister America, Inc. 2–25

outriggers.
TB2.13.2-1

Illustration 2-19: Keep Clear of Outrigger Danger Zone

2–26 Putzmeister America, Inc. A820143_02_0702K


Operation

Observe ground conditions (especially tripping hazards) before swinging outriggers.


Always use the handle and keep to the outside when swinging the outrigger leg. Watch for and ensure that
body parts and other objects are not underneath outrigger pad when lowering the outrigger leg.
Make sure to maintain a safe distance from pits, slopes, trenches, etc., when setting up. Check the condition
of the soil or flooring where the machine will be positioned. As shown in Illustration 2-20, the force
transferred into the ground by each outrigger is distributed through the ground in a conical pattern at a 45°
angle. This imaginary cone must not exit through the wall of the pit. Make sure to maintain a safe distance
from any pits (at least “a”), as shown in Illustration 2-20:
A. If the ground has good load-bearing capacity, maintain a minimum clearance of “(a)” from a pit of:
• (a1) = 6.6 ft. (2m) if pit is 0 to 6.6 ft. (0 to 2 m) deep
• (a2) = 1 x T if pit is > 6.6 feet (2m) deep

(a) = 6.6 ft (2 m)

Operation

2.13.2.1 Standard Outrigger Set-Up


It is recommended to set up the Telebelt with all four outriggers fully extended and locked in the operating
position. When placing the machine, ensure that there is adequate clearance to fully extend the outrigger
legs (as shown in Illustration 2-22).

TB2.13.2-4

Illustration 2-22: Outrigger Legs Must Always Be Fully Swung Out and Locked

2.13.2.2 Special Outrigger Set-Up


In special cases, obstructions may create a situation where it is not possible to extend all four outriggers to
their ‘standard’ locked operating position. In these special situations extreme care must be taken to avoid
an unsafe condition. There are three acceptable ‘Special Outrigger Set-Up’ configurations that can be used
in restricted areas. Please refer to section 5.4 for an explanation of the three Special Outrigger Configura-
tions and range diagrams.

NOTE:
In all Special Outrigger Configurations, the outriggers must be locked in position. If these
scenarios still do not allow set-up or if the outriggers cannot be locked in position, it is
unsafe to operate and other means of moving the material should be used.

Operation

2.13.3 Outrigger Pads (Blocking)


DANGER:TIPPING HAZARD.
Do not bridge voids or other ground irregularities with support blocks or timber
blocks, since these blocks may break if a point load is applied to them. If these
blocks break, the machine will not have the necessary stability and may tip
over.

As shown in Illustration 2-23, check for voids or other ground irregularities under the outrigger pads:

TB2.13.3-1

Illustration 2-23: No Voids or Other Ground Irregularities Under the Outrigger Pad
Ensure that the outrigger pads are set-up on level supporting ground (as shown in (A) of Illustration 2-24):

(A)

TB2.13.3-2

Illustration 2-24: Outrigger Pads Should Be Set-up on Level Supporting Ground

A820143_02_0702K Putzmeister America, Inc. 2–29


Operation

Verify that the machine is supported sufficiently by comparing the corner bearing loads and the load-bear-
ing capacity of the supporting ground (permissible ground pressure) by performing the following steps:
A. Ask site management (or determine) the maximum permissible ground pressure (load-bearing ca-
pacity of the supporting ground).
B. Calculate the maximum possible ground pressure that each outrigger leg can exert using the follow-
ing equation:
Maximum possible ground pressure = Machine corner bearing load ÷ Support area

Ground Ground
Pressure Pressure
30,398 lbs 34,311 lbs

135.0 kN 153.0 kN
TB2.13.3-3a TB2.13.3-3b

Illustration 2-25: Example of Outrigger Leg Front and Outrigger Leg Rear Decal
NOTE: The Corner Bearing Load is stated on each outrigger leg. Please refer to the decal
affixed to each leg for the loads specific to your machine.
C. Compare A. and B. – If the possible ground pressure is less than the maximum permissible ground
pressure, support is adequate for the job. However, if the maximum possible ground pressure is
greater than the maximum permissible ground pressure, then it is necessary to increase the support
area under the outrigger pads, this is typically done with timber blocks or other structurally sound
support materials.

2–30 Putzmeister America, Inc. A820143_02_0702K


Operation

DANGER:TIPPING HAZARD.
Make sure to always use at least 4 timber blocks with a cross-section of 6 in. x
6 in. (15 cm x 15 cm) each and lengths shown in the examples below. Place the
4 timber blocks together and level beneath the outrigger pad as shown in
Illustration 2-27. The outrigger pad and the timber blocks must always be free
from grease, oil, ice, etc., to avoid the support leg from slipping off and causing
machine to tip. During the course of a material placement, check to ensure that
the outriggers are not sinking into the ground.

• DO NOT use screw-type clevises to attach the reducer to the end frame. The rocking mo-
tion of the reducer can unscrew the pins.
• Be sure safety hooks have spring-loaded latches that work freely.

2–42 Putzmeister America, Inc. A820143_02_0702K


Operation

• DO NOT use nylon ratchet straps for securing end hoses, since they are subject to failure
(rot) caused by a reaction with the chemicals in concrete.
• DO NOT exceed maximum end hose length of 15 feet (5 m).

2.16.1 Setting-Up Conveyor


1. On cable or remote control, place function selector switch in middle or “conveyor boom” position.
2. Raise conveyor out of boom rest.
3. Slew conveyor out to a clear location.

Operation

CAUTION:
DO NOT use a hammer to clean the head scraper blades. A hammer blow will
fracture the tungsten carbide blades.

Correct tension of the head scraper is made at the time of the pour. Create
enough tension to keep the belt clean but not enough to actually start to
remove belt material. Be careful not over tension. Over-tensioning will shorten
the belt life and damage the splice. As a rule of thumb, with new blades and
springs, pull enough tension to be able to slip a credit card in between spring
coils.

NOTE:
T-handles or chains provided at the conveyors discharge end section, are connected
to the head scraper by way of springs. Pulling up on the T-handles or chains increases
head scraper tension on the belt. If increased tension does not improve scraper
operation, rotate or flip the blade to a new edge. Replace blades when all four
edges are worn.

5. As shown in Illustration 2-38, inspect head scraper blades and discharge end of both conveyors.
If scraping edge is worn, rotate or replace blade.

Operation

2.17 Conveyor Belt Operation


CAUTION:
All conveyor operations should be made with the engine speed at 3/4 to full
operating RPM. Engines speeds should NOT be used to “feather” operating
functions. Operating at low engine speeds can cause lack of lubrication and
overheating, resulting in damage to hydraulic components and PTO drives.

Keep the following points in mind when operating conveyors with manual bypass:
• Two manual bypass valves, which are located next to the oil cooler, can be used to turn the
belts on in the event of an electrical failure. Remove coil caps from load sense shutoff valves.
Open brass stems fully and replace caps. Partially open round top manual control knob
approximately five turns (these knobs are hard to turn when oil is flowing through the bypass).
Push levers down fully to turn the belts on and adjust belt speeds with the round knobs on top
of valves.
• Main “ON” First and “OFF” Last. When using manual controls, make sure to turn the
conveyor off after turning off the feed conveyor.
WARNING:
If conveyor belts are started using the manual bypass valves, they cannot be
turned off with the remote controls or E-stops. DO NOT leave these valves
unattended when using them to operate the conveyor belts. Turn speed control
valves off and screw brass stems of load sense valves back in after completing
manual operation.

NOTE:
Engine speed can be adjusted using any of the following throttle controls:
• Cruise control in truck cab
• Throttle control switch on the electric control box
• Throttle control switch on the radio or cable remote control.
Conveyor and feed conveyor belt speeds are independently adjusted using the
conveyor speed controls located on the radio (or cable) remote control or manual
bypass valve speed controls.

2.17.1 Belt Speed Control Valves

NOTE:
The conveyor belt PTO must be engaged or the conveyor belts will not run. This PTO
engages two hydraulic pumps that provide hydraulic pressure to the feed and
conveyor belt hydraulic motors.

1. Conveyor belt manual bypass speed control – When the conveyor belt manual bypass valve is turned
on (by pushing lever down) and the conveyor load sensing shutoff valve (item 7, Ill. 2-39) is either
energized or bypassed, turn this knob to adjust conveyor belt speed clockwise (CW) to decrease speed
or counter-clockwise (CCW) to increase speed.
2. Feed conveyor belt manual bypass speed control – When the feed conveyor belt manual bypass valve
is turned on (by pushing the lever down), and the feed conveyor load sensing shutoff valve (item 8, Ill.
2-39) is either energized or bypassed, turn this knob to adjust feed conveyor belt speed (CW) to
decrease speed or (CCW) to increase speed.
3. Feed conveyor belt manual bypass valve – Normal position for this valve is off (lever is pulled up). If
radio or cable remote control is not working, this valve can be turned on (by pushing lever down) to
manually bypass the electric control.
4. Conveyor belt manual bypass valve – Normal position for this valve is off (lever is pulled up). If radio
or cable remote control is not working, this valve can be turned on (by pushing lever down) to manu-
ally bypass the electric control.
5. Conveyor proportional belt speed control valve – The cable or remote control sends signals to this
valve to increase or decrease conveyor belt speed by adjusting the hydraulic oil flow inside valve.
6. Feed conveyor proportional belt speed control valve – The radio or cable remote control sends signals
to this valve to increase or decrease feed conveyor belt speed by adjusting the oil flow.
7. Main conveyor load sensing shutoff valve – This valve closes when an E-stop is pressed, which
ensures that the conveyor belt hydraulic pump shuts off even if the conveyor belt speed control valve is
stuck open. In the event of a total loss of electrical power, the conveyor belt manual bypass speed

control can not be used unless this valve is bypassed. This valve can be bypassed by performing the
following steps with the feed conveyor belt off:
1. Remove the plastic cap that covers the knurled knob
2. Turn knurled knob fully counter-clockwise
3. Screw plastic cap back on.
NOTE: To return to normal operation of this valve (unbypassed), remove the plastic cap, turn
knurled knob fully clockwise, and screw plastic cap back on.
8. Feed conveyor load sensing shutoff valve – This valve closes when an E-stop button is pressed, which
ensures that the feed conveyor belt hydraulic pump shuts off even if the feed conveyor belt speed con-
trol valve is stuck open. In the event of a total loss of electrical power, the feed conveyor belt manual
bypass speed control cannot be used unless this valve is bypassed. This valve can be bypassed by per-
forming the steps given in (7) above.
9. Initially adjust belt speeds (refer to the belt speeds and capacities charts and graphs in 2.18.1 and
2.18.2 below).

2.18 Conveyor Belt Speed Settings


CAUTION: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE.
All conveyor operations should be made with the engine speed at 3/4 to full
operating RPM. Engine speed should NOT be used to adjust conveyor belt
speed. Operating at low engine speeds can cause lack of lubrication and
overheating, resulting in damage to hydraulic components and PTO drives.

NOTE:
There are many variables that determine belt speed setting such as type of material,
water content, desired placement rates, supply rate to the conveyor, conveyor angle,
etc. The following suggestions may be used as a starting point from which
adjustments can be made, as needed:

– Each conveyor has its own hydraulic pump and control valve, and can be set to run at dif-
ferent speeds. The conveyor motor controls are located next to the oil cooler. Speed poten-
tiometer settings are located on the radio or cable remote control.
– Conveyor belt speed settings (0-10) refer to the indicator dial on the individual speed
potentiometers.
– Belt speed does not always change output. A common mistake is when an operator slows a
belt to top off a wall. If the mixer is not slowed, the belt will just run fuller and deliver the
same volume. Conversely, speeding belts up will not increase output or volume if the mixer
discharge is not increased.
– Some materials may require slower belt speeds and/or lower elevation angle to deliver
higher production.
– Some materials such as wet sand may bridge in hopper or transfer. Usually this can be
corrected by trimming hopper and transfer skirts, but external vibration may be necessary.

A820143_02_0702K Putzmeister America, Inc. 2–47


Operation

To have properly adjusted conveyor belt speeds, adjust belt speeds according to the type of material that will
be placed:
• Low slump (dry) concrete
• High slump (wet) or plasticized concrete
• Dry materials (rock, sand, backfill, or landscaping materials)

2.18.1 Belt Speed Determination


The capacity of the conveyor belts can be affected by increasing or decreasing conveyor belt speed. Belt
speed can be determined by performing the following steps:
1. Mark reference points on the belt and conveyor with a piece of chalk, marker, etc.
2. Note the time it takes the belt to travel one loop using a watch or count off in seconds.
3. Determine the corresponding belt speed using chart in Illustration 2-40 and graph in Illustration 2-41
below:

Belt speed can be determined by marking the belt and


conveyor and timing the belt travel for one loop through
the conveyor. Use a piece of chalk to mark reference
points on the belt and conveyor. Use a watch to note the
time it takes the belt to travel one loop. Refer to the chart
above for the corresponding belt capacity.

2.18.2 Belt Speed/Capacity Charts


Table 1, shows the conveyor speeds for optimum performance and capacity with the feed conveyor in
normal operating position (support legs resting on ground):

NOTE:
18-inch wide Telebelts can deliver up to 6 yd3/min at 0 degree boom angle and 4-inch slump.
Production is affected by variables such as slump, aggregate size and type, weather
conditions (rain, wind, temperature), boom angle, and belt speeds. In many circumstances,
slower belt speeds can result in higher production.
Make sure to run belt fast enough to move the material, but slow enough to prevent material
slippage or rock bounce.
The following charts are guidelines based on optimum conditions, results will vary.

1. Main conveyor belt speed potentiometer - Push in and turn clockwise (CW) to increase or
counter-clockwise (CCW) to decrease conveyor belt speed. The conveyors switch (item 3 in
Illustration 2-42) must be in (I) or (I+II) position for conveyor belt to run.
2. Feed conveyor belt speed potentiometer - Turn (CW) to increase or (CCW) to decrease feed con-
veyor belt speed. The conveyors switch (item 3 in Illustration 2-42) must be in the (I+II) position for
feed conveyor belt to run.
3. Conveyors switch - Lift switch and push up to 1st position (I) to turn conveyor belt on. Lift switch
and push up to 2nd position (I+II) to turn feed conveyor belt on.

2.19.1 Low Slump (Dry) Concrete


1. If conveying low slump (dry) concrete (stays in place on the feed conveyor when the belt is stopped)
use the following suggested settings:
• Feed conveyor – 6
• Main conveyor – 5
• Feed conveyor hopper gate – Fully open (up)
2. While pouring, check hopper gate, transfer, and boom discharge for overfill. Also check transfer for
splatter. Make adjustments as required for maximum production with minimum splatter and overfill.

A820143_02_0702K Putzmeister America, Inc. 2–53


Operation

2.19.2 High Slump (Wet) or Plasticized Concrete


1. If conveying high slump (wet) or plasticized concrete (will slide back down the feed conveyor, when
belt is stopped), use the following settings:
• Feed conveyor – 8
• Main conveyor – 6
• Feed conveyor hopper gate – Fully closed (down)
2. Make sure to follow these recommendations:
• Run feed conveyor fast enough to prevent concrete from sliding back down the belt.
• Run main conveyor fast enough to keep transfer clear, without creating splatter.
• Keep hopper gate low to help keep a low cross-section of material on belt and reduce wave action.
• Keep truck hopper level low to allow for concrete sliding back down when feed conveyor belt is
turned off.
• If possible, run feed conveyor belt empty before stopping to prevent concrete from sliding back down
the belt.

2.19.3 Dry Materials (Rock, Sand, Backfill, or Landscaping Materials)


1. If conveying rock, sand, backfill, or landscaping materials use the following settings:
• Feed conveyor – 3
• Main conveyor – 6
• Feed conveyor hopper gate – Fully open (up)
2. Make sure to follow these recommendations:
• Run feed conveyor slow enough to maintain a fully loaded belt with minimal rock bounce and roll-
back.
• Run main conveyor fast enough to keep transfer clean, with minimal rock bounce.

2.19.4 Maintenance During a Pour


CAUTION: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE.
The operator should always stand as close as possible to the feed conveyor
hopper in order to be able to monitor gauges, scrapers, supply, and operation.
NEVER stand at the discharge end of the conveyor, as the machine cannot be
monitored from there which could lead to personal injury or equipment
damage.
The oil cooler fan automatically turns on when the hydraulic fluid temperature
reaches 131° F (55° C). A switch on the electric control box is provided to turn
the oil cooler fan on manually if necessary.

2–54 Putzmeister America, Inc. A820143_02_0702K


Operation

NOTE:
Leaking scrapers accelerate scraper wear. Material that passes over the scrapers is
abrasive and will wear down the scraper material. Leaking scrapers also cause
splatter and unwanted grout collection in critical areas of the boom.

Sensors in hydraulic system will shut the conveyor belt off if the hydraulic oil reaches 194° F
(90°C). This is not an E-stop, since the boom functions will continue to operate. After the oil
has cooled, the belt circuits can be reset by turning the belt switch to “off” and then back to
“on” again. When this happens, always determine and correct the cause of overheating.
WARNING:PERSONAL INJURY.
Turn belts off before making any adjustments or repairs to any components.
Failure to do so may cause personal injury or equipment damage.

To maintain the Telebelt during a concrete pour or material placement, perform the following steps:
1. Check the transfer between feed and conveyor for concrete or material build-up. It should be discharg-
ing an even flow of material on the conveyor belt.
2. Check the connection between the scraper arms and the scraper blade clamp. Make sure that all four
bolts are tight. Ensure that head scraper is clean and tensioned enough to keep belt black without
taking off belt material:
• Tighten if necessary to eliminate grout “carry-back.”
• Loosen if belt material is observed on scraper arms.
3. Check all rollers and pulleys. They should be turning freely without concrete build-up.
4. Continuously monitor belt training (alignment) and tensioning. Shut down and re-tension or train
(align) as required (refer to Preventative Maintenance section of this manual). Keep in mind that:
• A loose belt will wear prematurely.
• A belt improperly trained (aligned) could run off the pulleys causing damage to belt edges and other
conveyor components.
• Always tension the belt before attempting to train (align) belts.
5. Frequently monitor engine gauges in truck cab.
6. Frequently monitor the following gauges and control lights for the truck and the conveyors:
• Hydraulic fluid level and oil temperature gauge (194° F or 90° C maximum). The hydraulic oil tem-
perature gauge is part of the fluid level gauge.
• Oil temperature gauge, hydraulic oil over-temperature indicator (red), and oil cooler fan on indicator
(green) on the electric control box.
7. Observe the overall general operation and condition of the conveyors by keeping these questions in
mind:
• Are the scrapers operating properly?
• Is the conveyor boom telescoping smoothly?

A820143_02_0702K Putzmeister America, Inc. 2–55


Operation

• Are the conveyor mid and head section stops in place and properly secured?
• Are the conveyor belts running at the proper speed?
• Is there build-up at the transfer points?
• Are there leaks at any transfers or skirts?
• Are there any unusual noises, squeaks, squeals, thumps, etc.?

2.20 Cleaning
Clean the Telebelt after each concrete pour or material placement using the following equipment:
• Wire brush
• Scraper
• High-pressure washer
Clean the machine thoroughly by performing the following steps:
1. Remove feed conveyor hopper. Completely clean belts, discharge boots, head scrapers, transfer chute,
and transfer skirts.
2. Wash all material off both conveyors. Ensure that drive pulley areas, turntable, and area under feed
conveyor hopper is thoroughly cleaned.
3. Run both conveyors until they are clean and dry.
4. Clean tail and “V” scrapers.
5. Remove any material build-up from telescope pulleys.
When cleaning machine, make sure to clean the following seven specific areas where material build-up can
cause problems:
A. Hopper or Hopper Transfer Skirts
If concrete or other material is allowed to build-up on the feed conveyor hopper or hopper
transfer skirts, the concrete/material covered skirts will cut their way into and eventually
through the conveyor belt resulting in premature belt failure.

B. Conveyor Rails
Thoroughly clean conveyor rails to remove useless dead weight, and to keep safety and oper-
ating information decals clean.

C. Hydraulic Cylinders
Clean any splatter from hydraulic cylinder rod ends to prevent seals from being destroyed or
hydraulic fluid from being contaminated. Rod wipers on cylinders will not remove hardened
concrete build-up.

D. Conveyor Cross Frames


Make sure to completely clean cross frames underneath conveyor belts to prevent concrete or
material build-up from cutting into the belt surface, and added weight that will cause the

2–56 Putzmeister America, Inc. A820143_02_0702K


Operation

hydraulic cylinders to work harder.

E. Hydraulic Hose Assemblies and Valves


Clean all hydraulic hoses of concrete splatter that can cause hose failure. Make sure to clean
the hydraulic valves to keep concrete and material from contaminating hydraulic fluid.

F. Rollers and Pulleys


Clean all material build-up away from roller assemblies that can cause excessive belt wear and
increased power requirements needed to run the belt. Build up on rollers and pulleys also af-
fect belt training (alignment).

G. Other Areas to Consider


Make sure to completely clean the following areas to maintain long service:
• Conveyor belts
• Head and V-scrapers
• Discharge boots
• Reducer (tremie)
• Also clean loose rocks and material from booms, decks, axles, frame, wheels, etc. to prevent
debris from coming off of unit during transport.

2.21 Water Tank and Pressure Washer


WARNING:EQUIPMENT DAMAGE.
When operating water pump, ensure that the valve is in the normal operating

2.21.4 Optional Water Tank and Oil Tank Heaters


WARNING:EQUIPMENT DAMAGE.
Failure to turn ‘Off’ water tank ball valves during warm weather conditions, will
result in the continual heating of the water and/or oil and may result in
premature wear of the oil cooler fan and damage to the pressure washer pump
and/or other hydraulic components.
There are two optional tank heaters available for the water tank and hydraulic reservoir for use in cold
climate conditions. There is a 110 volt electric heater, as well as, an engine manifold heater.
1. Electric 110 volt heater – The electric heater uses an electric element that is inserted into the tank. The
heater can be plugged into any standard 110 volt receptacle. If heaters are used in both the water tank
and the hydraulic reservoir, there will be two separate 110 volt heating elements each having its own
electrical plug.
2. Engine manifold heater – The engine heater circulates warm coolant from the engine manifold through
a heating element that is inserted into the water tank, then back to the engine manifold (as shown in
Illustration 2-46). For this reason there are two coolant lines (outlet and return) that run from the
engine manifold to the heating element. Each coolant line has a manual shut off valve that is used to
turn the tank heater on or off. To turn the heater ‘on’ rotate the valve handles to the horizontal position.
To turn the heater ‘off’ rotate the handles to the vertical position. When in the ‘On’ position, the heater
will continue to heat as long as the engine is running.

If manifold heaters are used in both the water tank and the hydraulic reservoir there will be a “tee” in the
line coming from the engine manifold (as shown in Illustration 2-47). After the “tee” there are two separate
ball valves. One valve controls the flow of warm engine coolant to the water tank heater (‘A”, Ill. 2-47) the
other valve controls the flow of engine coolant to the hydraulic reservoir (‘B’, Ill. 2-47). The manifold outlet
and return lines each have two ball valves. While each heater can be controlled separately, the individual
ball valves controlling each heater should be either turned ‘ON’ or ‘OFF’ together at the manifold outlet and
return lines.

3. Heater operation in warm conditions – The tank heater is intended to keep the water from freezing or
to ease oil flow during cold climate conditions. The tank heater should not be used during warm
weather conditions. On units with engine heaters, the coolant line valves must be turned off when the
risk of freezing conditions has ended. Failure to turn the valves off will result in continual heating of
the water and/or oil. As a result, premature wear to the oil cooler fan as well as, damage to the pressure
washer pump and other hydraulic components could occur if subjected to continuous heat.

2.22 Tear-Down (after Cleaning)


WARNING:EQUIPMENT DAMAGE.
All four outriggers must be locked in their storage position, with safety chains
attached, before driving away from job site.

The ratchet strap is a safety device that prevents damage to the feed and
conveyor rails due to bounce during road travel.

To tear down the Telebelt after material placement and to prepare it for travel, perform the following steps:
1. Disengage belt conveyor PTO to prevent accidental belt movement during tear-down.
2. Remove reducer (tremie) and end hose (delivery trunk, if used) from end of conveyor head section and
store.
3. Disassemble and fold feed conveyor hopper and store front and rear panels.
4. Move conveyor boom to its stowed (transport) position.

3.4.1 Engaging the Interaxle Lockout (Sterling)

NOTE:
The red LED light remains lit as long as the inter-axle lockout is engaged. This is to
remind the driver to release the lockout as soon as normal traction is regained. On
some units, an audible buzzer stays on when the lockout is engaged.

During normal vehicle operation, the interaxle lockout is in the “Unlocked” (disengaged) position. When
poor traction conditions are encountered, it may be necessary to provide a positive through-drive to both
axles by flipping the interaxle lockout switch to the “Locked” or “Up” (engaged) position. To engage inter-
axle lockout, perform the following steps:
1. Push switch to “Lock” or “Up” position to engage (red LED light illuminates).
2. Briefly release accelerator pedal to allow gear shift to take place, then proceed to drive through the
slippery area.
3. When normal driving conditions are regained, unlock the interaxle by flipping the switch to the
“Unlocked” or “Down” (disengaged) position (red LED light is off). Then release the accelerator pedal
momentarily (to shift out of the locked position) and proceed to drive normally.

4.0 Maintenance
4.1 Recommended Lubricants
WARNING: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE.
Never mix different types of hydraulic oils together (such as mixing
biodegradable hydraulic oils with mineral hydraulic oils).

Hydraulic Oils

To assure efficiency and long component life of your Putzmeister product, always use the correct hydraulic
oil that has been tested and proven for your product’s application. While there may be oil suppliers that can
supply a similar oil, we strongly recommend using only the hydraulic oil that has been tested and has a
proven history of success. Hydraulic components are expensive to replace. Components that become pre-
maturely worn or damaged from the using of incorrect oil are not covered by Putzmeister’s warranty. Please
provide your local oil supplier with the specific grade, i.e., (HLP VG46) as well as, the required
specifications (from the following charts) that the oil must contain. Request your supplier to provide written
confirmation stating that their oil meets these specifications.

Putzmeister installs HLP VG46 mineral based oil as the standard hydraulic oil at the factory. This oil meets
the majority of temperature requirements in the vast majority of applications. In extremely warm or
extremely cool temperature applications, approved HLP VG68 or HLP VG46 oils may be used. In limited
applications, biodegradable oil may be used. However, caution should be used because of the reduced
acceptable operating temperature range. Contact the factory first before switching to biodegradable oil.

Oil / Filter Change Intervals

Maintaining clean hydraulic oil is critical to the performance and life of the equipment’s hydraulic system.
As oil is initially pumped through a new system and as hydraulic components complete their initial ‘wear-
in’ cycle, the fine impurities that result are deposited in the oil and captured by the filters. For this reason,
the hydraulic filter vacuum meter should be monitored closely, and the filters should be changed as required.
The hydraulic oil should be changed every 500 hours of operation. Likewise, using the correct hydraulic
oil that has been designed for this unit will provide optimum performance and long life. Using other than
the recommended hydraulic oil may result in poor performance and premature wear or failure to
components.

Please refer to the following charts when replacing the hydraulic oil. The ‘standard’ oil installed at the
factory is HLP VG46 Mineral oil. This oil has been proven to function well in a wide variety of applications
and temperature ranges. For units operating in extremely cool, or extremely hot conditions, optional oils
may be substituted during the normal oil change intervals.

4.5 Filter Element Replacement


WARNING: PERSONAL INJURY.
Hydraulic oil becomes Very Hot at working temperature and may cause severe
burns. It is recommended to change filters when oil is at ambient temperature.

CAUTION: UNSAFE PRACTICES, COULD RESULT IN MINOR/MODERATE


DAMAGE.
Observe the following general instructions when replacing filter elements:
• Cleanliness is important in the maintenance of hydraulic systems. Ensure that no dirt or oth-
er impurities enter the system. Even very small particles can cause valves to be scored,
pumps to seize and choke, and control bores to become blocked.
• If possible, use a filler unit to fill up the hydraulic system. Never leave the tank lid open
longer than necessary.
• Always replace filter elements. As previously recommended in ‘Recommended Mainte-
nance Intervals’ table.
• Before installing new filters, check all O-rings and other seals and replace if damaged.

NOTE:ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION:
Dispose of old filter elements and any drained oil in appropriate containers or
NOTICE receptacles.

section guide blocks (as shown in Illustration 4-17).
B. Connect hand pump and both rams to pressure gauge tee.
C. With pump needle valve closed and both ram needle valves open, operate hand pump to extend ram
ends against end section guide blocks. Apply enough pressure to remove the end section retaining
bolts.
D. Slowly release pressure from ram ends by opening pump needle valve. Allow ram ends to retract
easing conveyor belt tension. As tension is eased, end section will retract somewhat.
6. Move the hopper end section further into the main section to allow removal of pulley assemblies. Man-
ually push in end section or use hydraulic jack set to pull end section in by performing the following
steps:
A. Fit collars over rams and pin rams to end section top flanges so that ram ends will extend away from
main section (as shown in Illustration 4-20).
B. Use retracting chains to grab main section with chain links. Pull chain over to pinned ram end and
fasten chain to ram end.
C. With pump needle valve closed and both ram needle valves open, operate hand pump to retract main
section as required.

Maintenance

CAUTION: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE.


The V-scraper must be installed correctly to prevent material from being caught
between the belt and pulley, which will damage the belt. After installing V-
scraper, check clearance between scraper blade and conveyor belt. Blade edge
should be positioned just above but not touching the belt. If necessary, tap V-
scraper brackets using a hammer and pin driver to affect positioning of scraper
blade.
6. Tension feed conveyor belt. Refer to “Tensioning the Feed Conveyor Belt” procedure.

NOTE:
Tension the belt by extending tail end section until pressure gauge on portable
NOTICE hydraulic jack reads 900 psi (62 BAR). Replace tail section retaining bolts after
correct tension has been achieved.
7. Install head scraper.
8. Apply tension to head scraper. Pulling up on T-handles draws the head scraper blade to the belt. After
applying tension, reinstall hairpins through holes in T-handles to hold scraper against the belt.

NOTE:
Correct tension of head scraper is made at time of pour. At that time, apply
NOTICE enough tension to keep the belt clean and ‘black’ but not enough tension to
actually remove belt material. At initial installation and when testing the belt,
apply light tension only.

CAUTION: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE.


Over-tightening the head scraper will shorten belt life and damage the splice.

9. Install boot/deflector assembly.


10. Test run conveyor and check belt training.

CAUTION: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE.


Initial start-up should be made with extreme care. Run the belt (jog the belt) for
approximately 100 feet and check belt training (alignment). If the belt tracks to
one side of conveyor or pulleys, adjust training (aligning) as required. If belt
trains (aligns) properly, repeat trial run a few times to be sure training
(alignment) is correct.

CAUTION: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE.


Do not use bolts in place of torque arm pin.

7. Torque collet tension bolt to 120-160 ft.-lb. (162 to 216 N-m). To prevent drive pulley from rotating
while tightening bolt, retain pulley with a chain wrench or have an assistant hold the belt.
8. Strike end of collet tension bolt a few times with a heavy hammer an re-torque bolt. Repeat once or
twice more to ensure that bolt is fully and properly tightened.
9. To be sure that collet is properly ‘seated,’ check collet tension bolt torque/tightness:
• After first 30 minutes of operation
• On a daily basis for the first five days of operation
CAUTION: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE.
Damage to collet and/or motor shaft splines can occur if collet tension bolt
becomes loose during operation.

NOTICE
– All vertically mounted sheaves are reeved counterclockwise.
– Looking down on horizontally reeved sheaves, 6 & 7 reeve clockwise and all
others reeve counterclockwise.
When installing a new cable, please remember the following points:
– The current production telescope cable has a swaged socket on the end that
connects to the telescope drive assembly dead head. This cable is designed
to be pulled through from the telescope drive assembly to the tension
cylinder. If it is not practical to pull the cable through in this direction, then
cut the swaged end off and use cable clamps and thimbles on both ends.

A820143_04_0809L Putzmeister America, Inc. 4–39


Maintenance

– The telescope cable may be pulled in from either end. The easiest way to pull
a new cable in is to attach the new cable to the old cable and pull the new
cable through while pulling the old cable out. Attaching to the old cable is
made by butt welding, or creating a four foot long flat splice. If there are any
broken strands on the old cable, cut them off and secure the cut strands to
avoid catching as the old cable is pulled out.
3. As shown in Illustration 4-26, ensure that the cable clamps are properly installed.

A820143_04_0809L Putzmeister America, Inc. 4–41


Maintenance

NOTE:
Equalizer cable operation:
NOTICE
– The main telescope drive cable (not shown in Illustration 4-27) moves the
conveyor head section (Arm 4) in and out. When the head section (Arm 4)
reaches full extension or retraction, it acts against stops on Arm 3.
– Arm 3 is pulled or pushed by Arm 4 (head section). As Arm 3 moves, it pulls
the equalizer cables with it. The cables, in turn, act against the ends of Arm
2 to extend it or retract it. The equalizer cables extend Arms 2 & 3 equally. The
cables also reduce the torque requirement of the telescope drive motor.
Equalizer cable adjustment:
– Tension on the main telescope cable is important, since it is a traction
(friction) drive and low tension causes slippage. Tension of the equalizer
cables is not as important. A fully extended equalizer cable can have 1 to 1 1/
2 inches of sag in the center and not create a problem. Equalizer cables do
not rely on tension or friction.
– Equalizer cables that are too tight can cause problems. Over-tightened
extend equalizer cables will make boom retraction impossible. The same is
true for over-tightened retract equalizer cables, full extension is limited.
1. With boom fully retracted, snug the retract (outer) pair of equalizer cables.

NOTE:
All adjustments are made at the anchors (item 7, Ill. 4-27) on the conveyor base
NOTICE section (Arm 1), using the nuts on the cable anchors. Ensure that each anchor
has a jam nut that is tightened after adjustments are made. Also, periodically
check that the three securing cable clamps are tight.
2. With main conveyor fully extended, snug the extend (inner) pair of equalizer cables.

NOTE: If one side of the pulley bracket starts to bend or bind, close the needle valve that
is feeding pressure to the ram on the side of the bind. Then gradually pump to
push on the other side until both sides can slide into the conveyor rails evenly.
6. If belt tension is sufficient at 1000 – 1200 psi (68 – 81 BAR), perform the following steps:
A. Secure pulley bracket to take-up rails with retaining bolts. Adjust ram strokes as required to align
bolts to holes in take-up rails. Count the bolt holes to ensure that the pulley bracket is square in the
rails.
B. Release pressure from ram ends by opening pump needle valve.
C. Remove rams from take-up rails.
7. If belt tension is still NOT sufficient with ram ends fully extended, pin pulley bracket in place, retract
ram ends, and re-pin rams closer to the pulley bracket on the take-up rails and repeat above steps.
8. If end of arm one is reached and belt tension is NOT sufficient, perform these steps:
A. Release belt tension at take-up pulley and slide pulley toward tail of arm one.
B. At secondary take-up pulley bracket, in tail of arm four, remove retainer bolts in rail slides.
C. Pull secondary take-up bracket toward tail end of arm four. Count holes to ensure that take-up
bracket is square with rails and replace bolts.
9. If end of truss section is reached and belt tension is NOT sufficient, perform the following steps:
A. Release belt tension at take-up pulley and slide pulley toward tail of truss section.
B. At secondary take-up bracket, in tail of head section, remove retainer bolts in slide rails.
C. Pull secondary take-up bracket toward tail end of head section and replace bolts. Count holes to en-
sure that take-up is square with rails and replace bolts.
D. Re-tension belt at main take-up by repeating above steps.

4.17.2 Secondary Belt Take-Up Adjustment


CAUTION:
Read and follow all procedures. Use a ‘Lock out - Tag out’ procedure and
observe all safety rules when working on the TelebeltTM

CAUTION:
Do not place hands, arms or any body parts into the main conveyor or
telescoping sections without first ensuring that the engine is off.

CAUTION:
When the belt is re-spliced or replaced, make sure to position the secondary
take-up first. This will prevent the take-up bracket from hitting the end frame of
the next section.

Secondary take-up is in the heel


Main Take-Up of the tip section. The next sec-
tion overlaps this area and hides
it from view.

Illustration 4-32: Main and Secondary Take-Up

As the main belt stretches, it can be adjusted by both the main and a secondary belt take-up. There is
approximately five feet of main belt take-up and four feet of secondary take-up which equals 9 feet of take-
up or equivalent to 18 feet of belt length to tighten the belt.

The secondary take-up is located in the heel of the tip section of the main conveyor. Using the secondary
take-up reduces the expense of re-splicing a belt sooner than necessary.

4.18 Training (Aligning) the Conveyor Belt


4.18.1 Training (Aligning) Main Conveyor Belt at Head Section
IMPORTANT:
Belts should run in center of all pulleys. Belts that are properly trained
(centered) generally will not “de-train” on their own. Belts that start to wander
on the pulleys indicate improper tension (loose belt).

Ensure that belt is properly tensioned before attempting to re-train the belt.

During the course of operation, if the conveyor belt appears to be running to one side or another adjust the
training (alignment) of the conveyor belt by performing the following steps:

1. If the conveyor belt tends to run to one side of a pulley (except drive pulley), tighten the pulley adjust-
ing bolt on that side, one turn at a time (refer to Illustration 4-30).

NOTE:
When telescoping the main conveyor with the belt turned ‘off’, the belt may run
NOTICE to one side of a pulley. Once the belt is engaged, it should return to center.

If belt runs toward this side, If belt runs toward this side,
tighten this adjusting bolt. tighten this adjusting bolt.
One turn at a time. One turn at a time.

Illustration 4-37: Main Conveyor Belt Training (Aligning) at Head Section

NOTE: The conveyor belt may need to run for several complete loops before a full re-
sponse to belt training adjustments occurs.

2. Carefully restart the conveyor at a slow speed and observe effect of adjustments.
3. If the belt requires further adjustment, repeat step one.

to this pulley are made using either of the two pulley retainer bolts (item 4, Ill. 4-31). Tightening the
bolt causes the belt to move away from bolt.

B. If belt is still not centered on drive pulley, check and verify that the drive pulley is square to frame and
steel cross member. Refer to Illustration 4-31. Check and make sure that ends of the drive pulley are
equal distance from the steel crossbreed. If not, adjust using bolts (item 1, Ill. 4-31). Check that the snub
pulley (item 2, Ill. 4-31) is parallel to the drive pulley. If not, use slotted holes in sub pulley brackets to
adjust.

3. Using portable hydraulic jack set, release tension on the belt by performing the following steps:
A. Fit collars over rams (items 1&2, Ill. 4-34) and pin rams to take-up rails on Arm 1 so that ram ends
make contact with pulley bracket (item 8, Ill. 4-34).
B. Connect hand pump (item 5, Ill. 4-34) to both rams to the couplers on pressure gauge tee (item 4,
Ill. 4-34).
C. Ensure that pump needle valve is closed and both gauge needle valves are open, then operate hand
pump to extend ram ends against the pulley bracket. Apply enough pressure to remove the pulley
bracket retaining bolts (item 9, Ill. 4-34).
D. Slowly release pressure from ram ends by opening pump needle valve. As ram ends retract, the pul-
ley bracket will retract and belt tension will be eased.
E. Disconnect pressure gauge tee from rams and remove rams from take-up rails.
F. Fully retract take-up pulley (item 8, Ill. 4-34) along the take-up rails. Create as much belt slack as
possible by fully retracting take-up pulley.
4. Remove snub pulley from conveyor.
5. Remove old belt and install new belt by performing these steps:
• Cut old belt at truss section.
• Tie new belt to old belt.
• Pull new belt in by pulling old belt out in normal direction of travel. It may be necessary to idle the
main drive pulley if it resists belt travel.
6. If old belt has already been removed, reeve new belt through conveyor sections as shown in Illustration

4.20 Torquing the Feeder Turntable Bearing Bolts


WARNING: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE.
Maintaining proper torque values for bolts is very important for structural
strength, performance, and reliability of the Telebelt unit. Variations in torque
can cause distortion, binding, or complete separation of the feed conveyor
base from turret. Failure to maintain proper torque of the turntable bearing
attaching bolts will result in damage to the unit structure and possible injury to
personnel.

CAUTION:
Proper identification of bolt grade is important. When marked as a high
strength bolt (grade 10.9), all personnel working on the unit must be aware of
bolt classifications and that ONLY high strength heat-treated tempered bolts
are installed. The fasteners must be installed according to specifications.
Special attention should be given to the existence of lubricant and plating that
will cause variation from dry torque values. When a high strength bolt is
removed, or un-torqued, the bolt MUST be replaced with a new bolt of the same
classification, along with a new high strength hardened flat washer.

NOTE:
If while checking the inner and outer race bearing bolts, one or more is found
NOTICE to be loose, it is likely that the bolt has stretched and will require replacement.
When replacing bolts, be sure to replace the high strength hardened flat
washers.

To torque the feeder turntable bearing bolts, refer to Illustration 4-36 for proper bolt tightening sequence
and perform the following steps:

4.22 Telebelt Belt Splicing Procedure


This belt splicing method has been developed for the following reasons:
• To achieve full tensile strength through splice area
• To prevent the scraper blade from opening the splice
• To obtain longer service life of the belt
• To prevent moisture and small particles from reaching the belt core.

The following Telebelt belt splicing procedures are applicable to 18” wide belts. They must be followed
exactly for maximum conveyor performance.

4.22.1 Belt Characteristics

The standard 7/16”-thick Telebelt belt is made up of three layers (plies) as shown in Illustration 4-38. The
top ply (the thicker one) is the load carrying side. The middle ply (tensile part) of belt is constructed of fab-
ric ply. The bottom ply (the thinnest one) is the non-load carrying side. The Telebelt belt is special for these
reasons:
• High strength, will not wear unevenly
• Tracks true without riding up idlers
• Troughs evenly with 45 degree idlers
• Resists stretching, tearing, fraying, impact, abrasion, and cutting
• Resists chemicals, rot, mildew, and delamination

4.22.2 Belt Length Determination

The belt length to cut is shown in Table 6:

Belt Length
TB110 Main Conveyor 247 ft. NEL (Net Endless Length)
TB110 Feed Conveyor 76 ft. NEL

4.22.3 Belt Rolling

During belt rolling, ensure to not damage belt with chains, cables, forklifts, or any handling equipment the
belt may come in contact with.

4.22.4 Belt Splicing Procedure

NOTE:
Careful and accurate work is required for belt splicing. Experience in handling various
tools, such as knives, ply lifters and ply knives, is important for successful results in
belt splicing. Personnel without previous experience, should practice the procedure
on scrap belts until familiarization with tools is obtained. Best results will be achieved
by following the instructions carefully.
4.22.4.1Working Area

Use a worktable that is flat, smooth, and stable, and is at least 6” wider than the belt width and is about 6’
in length. If possible, an extension table can be used for extra working area and convenience. For proper
drying and bonding of the cement, room temperature should be at 70° F (22° C).
4.22.4.2Material Required (for Standard Telebelt Belt)

Materials for splicing TB110 belts should be compatible with RMA (Rubber Manufacturer’s Association)
Grade 1 rubber compounds, and should include the following:
• Solvent
• Cement
• .020 tie gum
• Cover gum
• Light breaker fabric
• Release paper

4.22.4.4Precautions

The following precautions should be taken:


• The cutting edge of the one ply knife should be sharp and the knife should be held 45° to the belt sur-
face so that the land of the knife will be flat on the ply.
• Do not cut deeper than required with the one ply knife. (If the knife cuts through the second ply, the
ply is ruined).
• Brush and clean all surfaces with solvent before applying cement on them.
• Keep cement and repair gum cans tightly sealed and stored in a dry place.
• Stir cement thoroughly before and during use.
• The cement and solvent should be allowed to dry thoroughly.
• Splices must be accurately aligned and matched.
• Surfaces with cement and gum applied are to be kept clean.
• Make a trial fit of the spliced ends when they are dry to be sure about the splice. Align both edges and
check each step or skive for fit. A slight gap is permissible, but edges must not lap.

A splice is ruined if:


• A knife cuts through two plies.
• Air bubbles are left in the splice.
• Splices do not align correctly.
• Spliced area is not cleaned thoroughly.
• Fabric is damaged while buffing bevels on the load carrying side.
• The splice is not vulcanized at the correct temperature, correct pressure, or for the correct amount of
time.

4.23 Checking and Adjusting Hydraulic Pump Pressures


This section contains procedures for checking and adjusting the main, feeder, and boom/outrigger hydraulic
pump pressure settings. All three hydraulic pumps are pressure-compensated variable displacement axial
piston pumps wit a swash plate design. A test gauge kit must be attached to the appropriate test port while
performing these procedures:

NOTE:

A gauge assembly kit is included with the Telebelt Ship-Away Kit.

TB4.22-1
1. Gauge assembly #1 - This gauge consists of a hydraulic hose with a 400
mm minimess fitting on one end and a 1/4” fitting on the other end for a
0-60 BAR (0-882 psi) hydraulic pressure gauge (P/N 016372007).

2. Gauge assembly #2 - This gauge consists of the same set up as gauge as-
sembly #1 except a 0-400 BAR (0-5880 psi) hydraulic pressure gauge is
used (P/N 017250005).

Illustration 4-45: Gauge Assembly Kit

High and low pressure adjustment screws are on the compensator valve block of each hydraulic pump.
They have an acorn nut cover, a 3/4 in. hex socket adjustment screw and a lock nut. The adjustment screws
are next to each other; the smaller one controls standby (low) pressure (item 1, Ill. 4-46) and the larger con-
trols compensator (high) pressure (item 2, Ill. 4-46). Turning them in clockwise (CW) increases pressure.
Turning them out counterclockwise (CCW) decreases pressure. If any adjustment is made to the standby
(low) pressure setting, make sure to re-check the compensator (high) pressure setting, as these settings
interact.

5.0 Safety Instructions
5.1 General Safety Guidelines
Putzmeister America has made every attempt to anticipate all possible circumstances that might involve a
potential hazard. However, the warnings in this manual are therefore not all inclusive. In addition, while
Putzmeister America has made every attempt to produce a safe and reliable product, it is the responsibility
of the owner/operator to keep the machine in a safe operating condition and to use the machine in a safe and
effective manor. If an unsafe condition exists, DO NOT operate the machine until it has been made safe to
operate or until the job site issue has been fully resolved.

If a procedure, tool, device, or work method is used that is not specifically recommended by Putzmeister,
you must ensure that it is safe for you and other persons nearby. You should also ensure that the machine
will not be damaged or made unsafe by the procedures and methods you choose.

All persons operating, assembling, transporting, and maintaining this machine should be aware of and
comply with the following safety rules and recommendations:

• The Telebelt is a concrete/material placing machine. It is not designed for use as a crane. To use it as
such could cause damage to the machine and cause injury or death to personnel.
• Unless authorized and approved by Putzmeister, do not make any modifications, alterations, or
changes to a Telebelt that could in any way affect its original design. Doing so will void the Warranty
of the machine.
There are several publications available that go into great detail on how an operator and job site personnel
can work safely with (and around) material placement equipment. Some of these are listed below. Since
these publications are reviewed and edited on a regular basis by experts in the industry, Putzmeister America
strongly suggests reading them and incorporating their message into one’s daily practices.

In addition, there are certain safety topics and recommendations that are either unique to this Putzmeister
America product or are of such importance that they need to be included in this section of the manual
regardless of duplication with other publications. It is strongly suggested that everyone who will be working
with or around this piece of equipment be knowledgeable of this section’s contents.

Safety Standards

Illustration 5-2: Minimum Safe Distance from Electrical Power Source


• Avoid potentially dangerous electrical hazards by maintaining a safe distance between conveyor and
any electrical power source. For lines rated at or below 200 kV minimum clearance of at least 17 feet
(5 m) shall be kept. For higher voltages see Table 1 in Illustration 5-2.
Depending on the circumstances, one or more of the following precautions must be taken while working in
the proximity of any electrical power source:

A820143_05_0702K Putzmeister America, Inc. 5–3


Safety Instructions

• Contact those in charge of the power source and have the power turned off and lines grounded.
• Use of an additional “spotter” person to watch for the boom’s proximity to the power source.
• Provide a physical means to prevent the boom from being able to come within 17 feet of the power
source.
For further information on electrical hazards and precautions, please consult additional sources on the
subject. One example is the ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) B30.27 Manual for
Material Placement Systems.

5.2 Safe Operating Zones


DANGER: TIPPING HAZARD.
Setting up the machine using LESS THAN ALL FOUR OUTRIGGERS FULLY
EXTENDED, will greatly reduce stability in portions of the normal operating
range and may cause the machine to tip over. Putzmeister America will not be
held responsible for any injuries or equipment damage incurred as a result of
improper machine setup and use.

For stability and the safe operation of the machine in all working positions, ALL FOUR OUTRIGGERS
must be completely extended and locked in place to avoid hazardous tipping conditions. See Section 5.4
(Special Outrigger Configurations) for limited restricted use of the machine.

Use the model-specific range diagrams as a reference when setting up outriggers for normal horizontal and
vertical operation.
• Depending on the model, outrigger pad loads can exceed 45,000 pounds ON ONE PAD. Tires,
springs, and axles cannot be expected to carry these loads for a missing outrigger. Illustration 5-3
shows the magnitude of load that is applied to the supporting ground surface by the outrigger with the
conveyor fully extended:

27”x19” PAD AREA = 513 SQ.IN.

MAX. GROUND PRESSURE:


34,311LB
= 66.9 PSI
513 SQ.IN EXAMPLE:
34,311LBS (153 kN) Rear Outrigger Leg Load Limit
MAX OUTRIGGER PAD REACTION DUE TO
OVERTURNING MOMENT FROM CONVEYOR
FULLY EXTENDED & LOADED TB5.2

Illustration 5-3: Example of Outrigger Pad Ground Pressure


The actual center of gravity (CG) of the machine is a combination of the loaded conveyor CG and the carrier
CG. It moves, depending on conveyor angle, loads and extension. This combined CG point must be within
the outrigger pads.

5–4 Putzmeister America, Inc. A820143_05_0702K


Safety Instructions

• The truck must be level, from front to rear and from side-to-side (within three degrees). An out of
level vehicle can cause a runaway conveyor, undue side loads, and the movement of the center of
gravity that can cause stability problems.
• Outrigger’s that are not pinned are NOT considered deployed. Unpinned outriggers can be used for
leveling, or for removing “bounce”, but they cannot be used to increase permissible slewing angles.
Side loading an unpinned outrigger (slewing the conveyor) can cause the outrigger to pivot.

5.3 Range Diagrams


WARNING: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE.
Operating outside the range limits the machine was designed for can cause
damage to machine components and cause personal injuries.

The following example range diagrams are for normal outrigger setup and machine operation. Please refer
to the machine specifications provided for the range diagrams that relate to your specific vehicle.

5.4 Special Outrigger Configurations


DANGER: TIPPING HAZARD.
Setting up the machine using less than all four outriggers fully extended must
be done only with an elevated level of caution. Removal of the standard support
configuration greatly decreases the stability in portions of the operating range.
The modified range diagrams that follow must be adhered to if setting up in the
described manner. It is the responsibility of the operator to decide the best
method of ensuring that the boom does not enter the unacceptable zone by
allowing the side face of the boom to pass by the outrigger foot. It is
Putzmeister’s recommendation that a spotter (secondary operator) be
assigned to the task with proper training and a method for giving the operator
a warning when necessary.

It is stressed that full deployment of all outriggers is always the best practice and must be done if reason-
ably possible. However, location configurations can occur that will not permit full deployment yet can be
safely worked if proper precautions and procedures are followed. Putzmeister limits these acceptable
exceptions to the following three scenarios:

5–6 Putzmeister America, Inc. A820143_05_0702K


NOTE:
In all Special Outrigger Configurations, the outriggers must be locked in position. If
these scenarios still do not allow set-up or if the outriggers cannot be locked in
position, it is unsafe to operate and other means of moving the material should be
used.

Scenario 1 – Two Rear, One Front Extended Outriggers

In this set-up, both of the rear outriggers and one of the front outriggers are fully deployed. The remaining
front outrigger is either stored or unpinned (shown in stored position).
