This might get a little long; If this is the one like we had there is several steps. First unbolt at the drive wheels from the support that keeps the wheels out. Remove the bolt from the plate on the end that keeps it from hitting the outside wall. Slide the wheels/weights off. Fold the two pieces of the drive assembly in towards the unloader body and tie them together, you may have to get the knuckle of the drive shaft turned so it will fold up along side. There should be weights hanging out away from the body of the unloader, take a picture of them so you can put them back the way they are now and move them closer to the unloader and hang all of the weights and wheels on the same shaft to balance the loader when it goes up. If I remember correctly the chute needs to come off also and get tied on top of the body of the unloader, I also beleive that the cable is remounted lower on a support for it by the blower. Tie a rope to the unloader so that when it is at the top it clears the fill chute, this rope should go through the inside chute the silage comes down. Once the unloader is up the fill chute might have to be extended out so it is in position. On ours the unloader would be above the fill chute when it was extended.Make sure everything is tied on securely before pulling the unloader so nothing falls off.We got the bolts so we only needed three wrenches, one 9/16 and two 3/4 inch, but they rust so your may be different. I sure liked it when we went to ring drives as it was easier to get ready to pull. Took about an hour and a half average to pull the badger(s). and 45 minutes for the ring drives. I may have missed some things in this and others should be along soon who are more current in pulling one of these. It has been awhile since I did one.
