multitek 1610EZ - Modifications
« on: October 03, 2015, 03:34:09 AM »
mine is the older version 2008, Controls on the opposite side from the live deck.
only Modification  = conveyer lifter, i replaced the nylon strap with a steel cable and 2 pulleys, giving me a three line pull. makes lifting the conveyor from the ground MUCH easier.
it has a two strand live deck. wish it was a three strand

have you come up with a good idea to raise the conveyor after it is folded in half?

I can fold my conveyor in half, and it is more than a little heavy trying to fold it. or open it up.

there has to be a better way to do it. when trying to set up by yourself.

lowering conveyor: place flat board under joint to prevent stuff being pinched into joint.
raising conveyor: place a 2x4 that is at least 2 feet long under the end of the conveyor.
press down on the joint. the end should be 2 feet off the ground to make folding easier.

the cable and pulley that connect to the conveyer at the joint are attached with clevis hooks that i can move to the end of the conveyor to assist with the folding, then re-attached to the fold joint to lift
