Tools Required:

  • 3/4″ Wrench
  • 9/16″ Wrench
  • 1/2″ Wrench
  • Level

First, using a 1/2″ wrench, remove the four 5/16″ bolts to remove the guarding panels. Next, carefully count the number of links between sprockets; the front, left, and right side should all have the same number of links. Position your level across the conveyor, then use a 3/4″ wrench to loosen the bolts on all four corners of the lifts, just a half turn to allow the sprocket to slide. Start at the back of the lift and adjust the leveling to raise and lower the back end of the lift until the conveyor becomes level. Make sure that you are not leaving the sprocket too loose or too tight when leveling.

After the back is tensioned and level you will move on to the front and begin tightening the sprocket until it is level front to back. Then, check the tension on the bottom chain and tighten the bottom sprocket as needed. Adjust both the top and bottom to keep them level. Use a 9/16″ wrench to tighten the jam nuts on all of the leveling bolts. Next, use a 3/4″ wrench to tighten all of the locking nuts on the sprockets to keep them in place. Place your level back on your conveyor to do one final check to ensure it is level in all positions and directions. Lastly, re-install the side guards on all sides of the lift and tighten the four 5/16″ hex bolts.
