If possible before using your vending mover system, adjust the leveling legs to provide 1/2″ to 3/4″: of clearance between the bottom of the vendor frame and the floor.
If there is at least 1/2″ of clearance between the floor and frame, the air beams can usually be slid into place with ease.
If the air beams snag on the rear frame, angle them so a corner goes under first.
If there is less than 1/2″ clearance, and the rear leveling legs can’t be reached, it may be necessary to put spacers under the frame as follows:
1. Adjust the front legs to provide as much clearance as possible under the front frame. You may need to open the vendor door to adjust the front legs.
2. Insert the air beams as far as possible. Connect hoses and turn on the blower. Vendor will tilt back.
3. Place a spacer under the frame on each side of the machine, just outside of the legs and as far back as possible.
4. Turn off the blower, and the vendor will settle onto the spacers. The rear frame should now be high enough to insert the air beams for normal operation.
5. Once the machine is moved out, adjust the rear legs to make future moves easier and when removing the air beams you won’t need to use the spacer method.
If there is more than 1″ of clearance between the floor and frame, place spacers on top of the air beams. Adjusting the legs will solve the problem.
If there is over 4″ of clearance between the floor and frame, use adjustable spacers.
If one air beam can be placed under the machine but there isn’t enough clearance for the other, try connecting the blower to the one that is in position (without using the tee fitting). This can lift the one side providing enough clearance to insert the other air beam.
Caution: Lifting one side of the vendor will cause the top on the other side to move over about 3″. Do not use air beam as described above if there is a possibility of causing damage to an adjacent wall, machine or fixture.
