      Watch for this symbol. It points out important safety precautions. It means “ATTENTION - BE ALERT!
      YOUR SAFETY IS INVOLVED.”

Several decals are attached to the crib at various places to call your attention to its message concerning your personal
safety. Read and heed the message and be alert to the possibility of personal injury or fatality.

It is your responsibility as an owner, operator or supervisor, to know what hazards exist and to make these known to
all other personnel working in the area, so that they too may take any necessary safety precautions that may be
required.

If the decal(s) become damaged or detached, contact your Behlen Dealer or Behlen Mfg. Co. for replacement decals.

      Ear corn has a tendency to bridge while being unloaded. Do not enter a crib that has bridged corn. The bridge
      can collapse and trap or bury a person causing personal injury.

      Sloped ear corn has a tendency to slide free when movement is induced. Do not enter a crib where you may
      become trapped by sliding corn.




  If a flight conveyer is used to unload the crib, it is recommended that a safety cage is used over the conveyor to offer
  protection to persons who may be in the area.

GENERAL ERECTION
The crib must be set up on a level platform and securely fastened to it with the floor clamps furnished. A concrete
or heavy wooden platform must be used. This is especially important if the crib you have chosen is more than ten
feet in wall height.

The base of the crib must form a perfect circle or it will be difficult to make the roof fit later. Arrive at this by
drawing a circle on the platform. See Concrete Plan, Page 2 and Steps listed below for suggested procedure when
using a concrete foundation.

CONCRETE PLAN - STEP BY STEP METHOD
1. Pour concrete slab as recommended on Concrete Plan for “E” cribs.

2. Draw 8’ 1-7/8” Radius circle on fresh concrete. Drive nails through wood strip to make an accurate compass.
   See Fig. 1.

3. Mark off 13 spaces with chord of 3’ 10-15/16” on the circle just drawn for anchor bolt location. Set the first
   mark where the center of the door is desired. The last mark should come within 1/2” of the first mark made.
   See Fig. 2 for wood strip compass.

4. At each mark, place a 1/2” x 6” anchor bolt. Expose about 1½” of the anchor bolt.

GENERAL ERECTION
Center the wall panels around the outside of the anchor bolt circle. When assembling the wall panels, care should
be taken to have all the open ends of the loops down. The panels should be assembled so that the ends overlap
uniformly (see detail on concrete plan). If the loops on one edge of a panel are under the preceding panel, then the
loops on the other side of the panel should be on the outside of the next panel. Never should a panel be completely
inside or outside of the other panels.

The 3/8” x 1¼” hex head bolt furnished should be used where the roof clips and extension connectors are fastened
to the wavy edged reinforcing bars. This includes the separate bars furnished for the door as well as those welded
to the top and bottom of each panel.

 GENERAL ERECTION
 CAUTION: Never attempt to put the roof on after the crib is full of corn. It will not fit due to the fact that the corn
 will throw the top of the crib out-of-round.

 A number of different methods have been used by our customers for putting the roof on the crib. One of these is to
 set up a tall “gin pole” at the center of the crib location, holding it upright with the top of a large farm elevator, and
 pulling the roof up with a block and tackle after assembling it on the ground. The crib is then assembled under the
 roof.

 The method more frequently used is to erect a scaffold by placing three - 18 foot 2 x 6’s for “E” Models (or 14 foot
 2 x 6’s for “F” Models) through the crib mesh at a point about 1½ feet down from the top. Lay cross boards on
 them for a working platform. Be sure not to throw the top of the crib out of round when placing the 2 x 6’s
 through the mesh. See Fig. 8.

                                        CRIB ROOF ASSEMBLY




                                                        FIG. 8




STEP BY STEP METHOD
1. Interlock three of the roof sections and bolt them together, also bolt them to the reinforcing ring, using the 3/8”
x 7/8” hex head bolts. Place this assembly on top of the crib and hold the reinforcing ring in place by propping it
up from the scaffold platform. These props should hold the bottom edge of the reinforcing ring in the center of the
crib and the correct distance above the top of the bars on the upper end of the wall panels. (Note: 84” is the correct
distance on all “E” Models; “F” Models should be 61”). Do not put the bottom bolts in any of the panels until all
the other bolts are in and the support holding up the roof has been removed. Temporarily, wire these panels to the
wall to retain them in place. One seam of the roof should e directly over the wall seam joint.


                                                                                          (continued next page)




F-10215M                                                8                                                     6-15-73
2. Add the remainder of the roof sections. One of the roof sections has an opening formed in it for the roof access
door. It may be placed anywhere in the roof for your convenience. Install this panel last. Looking at the roof from
the outside, the ladder rung clips must be installed on the roof panel to the left of this door section. See Detail
Below. The ladder rung that fits to the left of the center of the roof access door is formed on the right end, and acts
as a jamb for the latch handle.

3. The roof door hinges and bolts are shipped separate from the door. Use (4) 3/8” x 7/8” Hex bolts to attach the
hinges to the roof door. Install the handle on the outside of the roof door. Tighten the first nut down to the desired
friction and then lock with the second nut. Use one - 5/16” round head stove bolt in each hinge for attaching the
hinges to the roof. These bolts are installed with the door in the wide open position so that when the door is closed
the head of the stove bolt will be between the hinge leaves. The door hinge holes are slightly oversized so that the
door may be adjusted to fit properly.

4. Install the last roof section. In order to make the last roof section fit properly, you must be sure that the rein-
forcing ring is held up to the proper height (“E” - 84”, “F” - 61”). Recheck this dimension at this time, as the addi-
tional weight of each roof section may have caused it to change. Now, remove the supports from under the reinforc-
ing ring and permit the roof to settle down on top of the crib.

5. Next, add all the roof sections clips - one at each wall panel bolt seam. The clips should be installed under the
head of the wall panel bolt on the outside of the strap. Also, it should be under the nut, of the roof panel bolt, on
the under side of the roof. Clip the intermediate roof clips to the wall panel strap, centering between two wall panel
bolt seams and bolt to the roof panel seam line. Leave the bolts loose until all clips are installed. Be sure the wall
panels at the eave of the crib form a perfect circle before attempting to bolt the roof to the crib with the roof section
clips.

6. The roof cap is held in place by two spring assemblies, anchored on roof panel seamlines by the first bolt down
from top. Locate the cap release spring-hook assembly on the second seamline to the right of the roof ladder.
Locate the other spring on the opposite side of the roof cap directly across from the release assembly.
