The post below are correct but I will add a few things we do on our badger.We let the drive wheels on and simply tie them on top the frame and slide the weight out to counter balence the unloader when raised.We remove the spout and bracket so that the unloader can be raised higher into the roof.We have two people when raising and tie a baler twine to the unloader one person holds onto the rope(you can drop it down from the top or stand in the shoot at the bottom,never in the silo while unloader is being raised)This string keeps the unloader from spinning around while raising.My neighbor moves his wheel out that runs against wall to keep his from spinning.It would be a very good idea to take your motor to a shop and have it checked out.We have ours done every three or four years.A Badger dealer can get you an operaters manual or check Ebay.For a distributer ours two 14X40 silos have a hood on top the pipe that divides the silage into three piles in the silo.Put your first load or two in then go to the top and make sure you are getting the silo filled even and not to one side.A 40 ft silo this is not as much issue as larger and taller silos.If you are going to feed in the winter make sure that the chipper wheel on the end of the auger is in good condition.You will learn some as you go along as eight years ago I knew nothing about unloaders but three wore out ones taught me quickly.LOL
