1.
GENERAL SAFETY
Keep exhaust piping tight at all times. Do not allow piping to
become blocked. The maximum back pressure (positive) in exhaust
system at full throttle, no load, 2500 RPM must not exceed the engine
manufacturer’s recommended value.
This diesel-powered vehicle may only be designed for use in
non-coal mines. Such mines are those in which material being
mined is incombustible or contains at least 65% by weight of
incombustible material, and in which underground atmosphere
in any open workings contain less than 0.25% by volume of
flammable gas. Tunneling operations in which underground
conditions confirm with the foregoing are in the same category
as non-coal mines. Any questions pertaining to the design of
this vehicle, please contact your local distributor. Make
frequent inspections to see all engine intake and exhaust parts,
all electrical components, including wiring and all other
equipment, are in safe operating condition. There must be no
openings in any part of the engine exhaust system except one
exhaust outlet originally provided.
9.
EXHAUST PURIFIER

OPERATING AND MAINTENANCE MANUAL FOR MODEL A-64 CHASSIS M1027 Page 8 of 30 GENERAL DESCRIPTION
OPERATING AND MAINTENANCE
MANUAL FOR MODEL A-64 CHASSIS
M1027
Page 8 of 30
GENERAL DESCRIPTION
Getman Model A-64 Chassis is a four wheel drive,
articulating frame steering vehicle powered by a diesel
engine. The power of the engine is transmitted through
the torque converter to a powershift transmission. From
the transmission, drive shafts with universal joints
transmit the power to the deep reduction, inboard
planetary drive axles.
Every effort has been made to ensure that you can stop this
vehicle. The service brakes (axle brakes) are fully enclosed
wet disk type, with a dual system, permitting separate circuitry
for front and rear brakes. Should a failure occur in either
circuit, the other circuit remains functional. The spring set,
hydraulically released, service brakes which also serve as
parking brakes, are manually set and released by utilizing the
dash mounted push/pull control button. The front and rear
service brakes are also used as secondary brake which
automatically apply in the event of loss of hydraulic or
transmission pressure. This brake can also be manually
applied in the event of complete hydraulic system failure.
CAUTION
Steering is not functional when engine is not running.
Steering is full hydraulic power type, utilizing a flange
mounted direct drive hydraulic gear pump which provides
hydraulic fluid to an orbitrol valve operated by the
steering wheel. This operates the two steer cylinders
located in the articulation joint.
This vehicle is equipped with two red Brake Warning lights
located in the instrument panel. These are for each the front
and rear brake circuits. These warning lights will illuminate if
hydraulic pressure in either brake circuit drops below the
preset 1100 PSI (76 BAR) level. The front and rear service
brakes will automatically apply if the hydraulic pressure in the
brake circuit drops below 1100 PSI (76 BAR). The Brake
Impending light in the Warning Panel will illuminate when
hydraulic pressure drops below 1200 PSI. All the instruments
require to operate the vehicle are located in the operator’s
area. Become familiar with the position and function of each.

operate the vehicle, find a long straight open stretch of
roadway and accelerate. Start in 1st gear, shift to 2nd
gear, and then to 3 rd , etc. (if conditions permit). Make
certain area chosen is free of obstacles and/or other
personnel. At higher speeds slight turns should be tried
as long as there is no danger of hooking the rib or
another vehicle. Stop vehicle and return transmission
gear selector to neutral (N). Apply Park Brake. Check
all gauges again to be certain they are within normal
operating range.
NOTE: When traveling up a grade, select lower gear if
torque converter oil temperature approaches 200°F (93
°C).

LOADING MATERIAL INTO THE ANFO POTS

M1006 Page 13 of 19 LOADING MATERIAL IN TO THE ANFO POTS The stainless steel ANFO

The stainless steel ANFO pot or pots on your Getman vehicle are equipped with a lid over the top opening to keep water and/or debris out of the pot. This lid should only be opened when the pot is completely de-pressurized by opening the tank drain ball valve and venting the air to atmosphere. Once the vessel is filled, the lid should be closed and latched before the vessel is again pressurized.

Located under the lid, is a stainless steel screen. The screen is utilized to screen out any debris that may be

inadvertently directed towards the pot. This will also help break up any larger lumps of anfo and maintain conformity

in material size. Do not remove this screen. It will provide added assurance against material plugging and added

security for personnel while loading the vessel with material.

There is a rubber sealing cap inside the pot below the screen. The cap automatically rises and seals the pot when air pressure is applied to the pot. The pot should never be filled to a point above the base of the cap as this may prohibit the cap from properly sealing. The normal fill capacity would be approximately ¾ to full.

A “grounding reel” is provided on every ANFO vehicle Getman manufactures. The cable of the reel should be run to

earth whenever filling the ANFO pots and/or when charging holes.

A-64 ANFO CHARGER OPERATING AND
INSPECTION MANUAL
M1006
Page 14 of 19
CONTROL OF THE ANFO SYSTEM
The operating controls for the anfo system are completely air powered. The main air manifold or “tree” is located
between the pots on a dual pot system in the center of the deck behind the boom. It is also located in the same general
area on a single pot delivery system. This location was chosen to provide maximum protection from falling debris
while still providing easy access for operator adjustments.
This Getman Anfo Charger has been carefully designed to create a delivery system which will function properly in
almost any application with material from various suppliers. Many updates and improvements have been made
throughout the years to ensure proper loading can always be achieved for maximum productivity. The key to
successful loading will be for the operator to determine the correct settings necessary to properly place the material in
your specific application.
This manual may “not” be able to provide each and every operator with the precise settings which may be required for
the best material delivery in each application. By following the simple instructions listed in this manual, you should
be able to have the delivery system fine tuned to your particular operation in a matter of hours.
Universally, there are several suppliers of anfo material. This allows for many differences in texture, weight and
conformity. Some materials manufacturer’s provide a very dry, light product and others are heavier and stickier. This
is why finding the correct air pressure and volume settings for each application is so important.
Once the operator has utilized this system for some time and has determined what settings best fit his needs and
application, further adjustments are seldom required.
Here are some of the misconceptions that often make finding the perfect settings difficult:
If I use the maximum air volume, I’ll get the maximum amount of anfo-
While this sounds logical, we all know the goal when loading is to place the material into the hole quickly and well
compacted. Sometimes when too much boost air volume is used, the air/material ratio is too high. This means more
air and less anfo travels down the lines to the delivery hose. This means longer fill times and less productivity.
I’ll keep maximum air pressure going into the top of the anfo pot to push more material-
Again, very sound logic, but not always practical. The pot is cone shaped with a 4” outlet at the bottom. The real
purpose for the air pressure on the top of the pot is to assist the material to travel to the outlet in the bottom of the pot.
Depending on the humidity factor of the material in the pot, too high an air pressure will lead to packing the material
too tight into the outlet and lead to plugging. The boost air venturi located at the elbow at the pot outlet is truly “the
mover” of the material to the basket. The pressure in the pot is there to ensure the material can get to the outlet in a
consistent manner.

CONTROL OF THE ANFO SYSTEM CONTINUED
BASKET CONTROLS:
There are two hand operated 2 position control valves in the basket which allow the operator to control the
anfo delivery system. These come conveniently hard mounted on the basket railing. There is an optional
belt attachment available which allows the operator to have the ability to have the controls mounted
remotely with them.
• CLEAN OUT CONTROL VALVE: This control valve when actuated (ON) sends pilot air to
open the relay valve located downstream from the anfo supply valve (Jamesbury). Once the relay
valve is actuated, maximum air pressure will be sent through the delivery hose at a rate dictated by
the adjustment of the “clean out ball valve.” This can be utilized to purge remaining material from
the delivery hose and/or to blow out water or rock dust from the drill hole prior to loading.
• ANFO SUPPLY CONTROL VALVE: This control valve when actuated (ON) sends pilot air to
perform three separate but related functions. #1 Opens the “anfo supply valve” located between the
elbow at the outlet of the anfo pot and the adapter/reducer where the delivery hose to the basket
commences. This allows the material to move into the delivery hose. #2 Opens the “boost air relay
valve” which can then allow regulated air flow to push material down the delivery hose to the
basket. #3 Turns on the tank mounted “vibrator” to create tank vibration to assist the material in the
pot in moving freely into the outlet elbow. Returning the control valve to the “OFF” position will
close the anfo supply valve, stop boost air from entering the outlet elbow and stop the vibrator.

BASIC SYSTEM ADJUSTMENTS AND OPERATION
Once you have placed the vehicle in it’s work position, apply the parking brake. At this time the operator
should then pull out the tee handle of the diverter valve located to the right side of the operator’s seat. This
valve will be labeled “Steering/Accessories”. This valve disables the steering, prohibits the release of the
parking brake and directs oil to the rear of the vehicle to provide for the hydraulic jacks, boom functions,
and hydraulic air compressor. Now the operator should proceed to the rear passenger side of the vehicle and
with the correct diverter valve placed in the “JACKS” position, the stabilizer jacks can be lowered until the
vehicle is supported and is level as possible. Depending on the vehicle configuration listed below, the
engine can be shut off. Do not utilize stabilizers to obtain extra height. Try and park the vehicle with the
front and rear frames aligned as straight as possible.
If vehicle was purchased equipped to operate the ANFO delivery system utilizing mine air, there should be a
mine air connection located on each side of the vehicle. You can now connect the mine air to whichever
side is most convenient. Please note the mine air supply house should be blown out prior to connecting to
the vehicle to ensure the supply hose is free of water or debris. Once the mine air valve is opened, you can
open the ball valve located immediately after the mine air connection. This will provide air to the “tree” for
feeding the pots and controls, the air powered hydraulic pump for the boom and outrigger functions, and the
air driven alternator which will allow operation of all work lights. The light control switches are located in
the instrument panel in the operator’s compartment. The ball valve located just prior to the air driven
alternator should be “opened” to operate the alternator.

BASIC SYSTEM ADJUSTMENTS AND OPERATION CONTINUED
Each loading situation is different. Therefore, the system control settings are different as well. With this
system, you can control both the volume of material being delivered and the speed or force in which that
material is being delivered. The key things to keep in mind are:
• To change the “amount” of ANFO being delivered, changes must be made to the regulated pot
pressure.
• To change the “speed or force” or the material being delivered, changes must be made to the
boost air ball valve. (Increase or Decrease Volume)
The two system adjustments mentioned above are the most important ones the operator can make to be able
to fine tune the system to his satisfaction. The key is achieving the correct balance of the two. Too much
boost volume may cause jerkiness of the delivery tube and sporadic spurts of air. Too much pot pressure
may cause intermittent plugging of material. The correct balance must be found for the application. Once
this balance is found, any further adjustments will be minor and quickly done. A lot of this will depend on
the material used, the application, and the conditions and the operator preferences. Basically, it will be
whatever works best for you.
To determine what is right for you, you must approach this system with an open mind. You should not
assume that the same settings as on an older vehicle with a different system will be right for this one. Many
of the older systems had very few adjustments available to them.
Getman has worked closely for several years with many customers in various countries to develop a
delivery system that was adjustable enough to adapt to material differences and various applications.
During these years, we have found that the best and quickest method to determine what setting are best for
your application is to start slowly with minimum pressures then grow from there. Generally within the first
hour of use, you will be near your desired settings.
PLEASE TRY THE FOLLOWING METHOD.

BASIC SYSTEM ADJUSTMENTS AND OPERATIONS CONTINUED
As per previous pages, this vehicle can be manufactured with a mine air ANFO system, an onboard air
compressor ANFO system, or a combination of both. Regardless of the system you have chosen, once you
have an air supply for your system, the system settings become the most critical component to successful
operation. Once you have placed the vehicle in the required position, lowered the stabilizers, and connected
the grounding reel cable to earth, Getman suggests you start with the following settings:
• Adjust the ANFO pot pressure regulating valve until the ANFO pot pressure gauge indicates
approximately 25PSI.
• Adjust your clean out air ball valve to approximately the half (1/2) open position.
• Adjust your boost air ball valve to approximately the half (1/2) open position.
Because there will always be a short delay after the ANFO delivery valve is closed after loading a hole, we
recommend you place a piece of tape on the delivery wand approximately 10-12” from the place you want
the flow of material to stop in that particular hole. This is done so you can feel and see when the tape exits
the hole and turn off the delivery system and yet fill the hole to the desired depth.
• Now insert the loading wand into the hole to be filled and pull open the “clean out” valve control in
the basket. This will open the “clean out relay valve” and send only air through the wand to blow
any water and/or debris from the hole. Be certain to position your face and body to the side of the
hole to avoid being sprayed. If the blow back is too strong, close your clean out air ball valve
slightly to reduce the volume of air being delivered.
• Once the hole has been cleaned out, it’s time to fill the hole with ANFO material. Pull open the
“ANFO delivery control valve” in the basket. This will open the material delivery valve, apply the
tank vibrator and open the boost air. Because the pot air pressure is set low and the boost air ball
valve is at ½ open and should easily be controlled.
This will be slow, but will allow you to “get the
feel” or the system. You will notice that when you start loading, the wand (delivery hose) will start
to push itself out of the hole. You should keep your hands gripped loosely around the hose so it can
continue to come in time with the material going in to the system.
• Once your comfortable with the feel, you can increase the material flow being delivered by
increasing the pot pressure regulator up to approximately 35PSI. Since you are delivering more
material, you should now feel the wand being pushed back out quicker than before and the hole will
be filled quicker. Once you see your tape, shut off the ANFO delivery control valve.

BASIC SYSTEM ADJUSTMENTS AND OPERATION CONTINUED
Now we will increase the speed by opening the Boost air ball valve. Now you may find the delivery hose
(wand) is a little harder to hold because it has more recoil. Again, the hole will be filling faster. Depending
on the material type being used and the required fragmentation, an adequate speed (force) may be critical to
properly pack the material in the hole.
Continue to adjust the pressure and volumes until the system is performing to your satisfaction.
The methods mentioned above will basically be the same for loading any type of holes. The key is always
going to be “getting the settings to where they work best for you!!”
KEY ITEMS TO REMEMBER
MORE ANFO POT PRESSURE NORMALLY CREATES MORE MATERIAL VOLUME
FLOW.
NOTE: TOO MUCH ANFO POT PRESSURE CAN LEAD TO PLUGGING. CUSTOMER
EXPERIENCE HAS INDICATED 60PSI IS GENERALLY THE OPTIMUM SETTING FOR
ANFO POT REGULATED PRESSURE.
• INCREASE BOOST AIR (BALL VALVE) CREATES INCREASED MATERIAL
DELIVERY SPEED.
• INCREASED CLEAN OUT AIR (BALL VALVE) CREATES INCREASED AIR VOLUME.
• NEVER LEAVE MATERIAL IN THE ANFO POTS OVERNIGHT. THE CONDENSATION
AND HUMIDITY MAY LEAD TO PLUGGING PROBLEMS.
• NEVER LEAVE THE POTS PRESSURIZED BETWEEN LOADING CYCLES. DOING SO
MAY LEAD TO POSSIBLE PLUGGING PROBLEMS
• WHENEVER ANY HOSING, FITTINGS, OR CONNECTIONS OF SMALLER SIZES ARE
USED, THIS WILL LIKELY NECESSITATE THE RE-ADJUSTMENT OF THE AIR
SETTINGS. THIS IS DUE TO THE POSSIBLE RESTRICTION CREATED BY THE
SMALLER DIAMETER.
• ALWAYS EMPTY ANY MATERIAL FROM POTS PRIOR TO ENTERING
MAINTENANCE SHOP FOR WELDING OR REPAIRS.
• NEVER MOVE THE BOOM FROM THE DECK WITHOUT THE STABILIZERS
LOWERED AND THE FRAMS AS LEVEL AS POSSIBLE.

RANGE & LOAD LIMITS
POWER LINE PROXIMITY
A maximum Range and Load Capacity tag as shown on
pages 3 and 4 is posted on the crane. The load-range
limits identified on this tag should be read and thoroughly
understood before any payload lifting is carried out. Do
not exceed the maximum load for any range. Overloading
gives risk to tipping and structural failure of the crane,
and poses serious safety hazards. Lift all loads with crane
boom.
Except where the electrical distribution and transmission
lines have been de-energized and visibly grounded at
point of work location, or where insulating barriers not a
part of or an attachment to the crane have been erected to
prevent physical contact with the lines, cranes shall be
operated proximate to, under, over, by, or near power
lines only in accordance with the following:
1. For lines rated 50 kV or below, minimum clearance
between the lines and any part of the crane or load
shall be 10 feet.
WARNING
A TIPPING HAZARD EXISTS WHEN OPERATING
THE CRANE ON A SLOPE OR ACROSS A SLOPE
GRADE. RATED RANGE AND LOAD
CAPACITIES MUST BE RESTRICTED TO
COMPENSATE FOR SLOPE OPERATION AND TO
AVOID TIPPING.
2. For lines rated over 50 kV, minimum clearance
between the lines and any part of the crane or load
shall be 10 feet plus 0.4 inch for each 1 kV over 50
kV, or use twice the length of the line insulator but
never less than 10 feet.
3. In transit with no load and boom lowered, the
clearance shall be a minimum of four feet.
4. It is recommended that a person be designated to
WORK SITE LOCATION
The safe, recommended work site location for the crane
vehicle is a level, dry paved surface. Unpaved ground
should provide solid support for gross vehicle weight and
any load lifted, and sound outrigger footing.
observe the clearance and give timely warning for
all operations where it is difficult for the operator to
maintain the desired clearance by visual means.
Before the commencement of operations near electrical
lines, the person responsible for the job site shall notify
the owners of the lines or their authorized representative
providing them with all pertinent information and
requesting their co-operation.
Parking on slopes requires special precautions:
1. Park with the grade-vehicle facing upgrade or
downgrade.
2. Use wheel chocks on downgrade side of rear vehicle
wheels.
Any overhead wire shall be considered to be an energized
line unless and until the person owning such line or the
electrical utility authorities indicate that it is not an
energized line.
3. Parked at curbside with front facing downgrade--
turn front wheels into curb.
4. Parked at curbside with front facing upgrade--turn
front wheels away from curb.
Exceptions to this procedure, if approved by the owner of
the electrical lines, maybe granted by the administrative
or regulatory authority if the alternate procedure provides
sufficient protection and is set forth in writing.
5. Avoid parking cross-grade. If cross-grade parking
is unavoidable then load lifting capacities must be
restricted to reduce tipping risk.
The working field (envelope) of the crane should be as
free as possible of overhead obstructions, equipment, and
materials which could restrict crane operation. The
operator should take note of all objects noted about and
limit the crane lifting operation to remain well clear of
them. Electric power lines pose special hazards.

OPERATING AND MAINTENANCE
MANUAL FOR DUNBAR CRANE
M1023
Page 10 of 14
2. POSITION CRANE FOR LIFTING: Using crane control functions, maneuver crane tip or tip with lifting attachment
into lifting position over the load so that:
a. Crane Hook, if used, is directly over load using the most efficient load range crane boom extension for the intended
load transport.
b. Lifting Attachment, if used, is placed for correct load engagement with out side loading boom stress.
3. ENGAGE LOAD: Using correct , secure procedures engage and secure load to hook or attachment making sure:
a. Hook is secure and safety catch is in place.
b. Rigging is correct and properly balanced so no load shift will occur during transport.
c. Load Attachment has completely and securely engaged load and no loose, falling material hazard will exist during
transport.
d. Boom Tip is positioned directly over load and hook or load attachment ring so that no side loading of boom (dragging)
will occur when load lifting begins.
DANGER
PREPARATION FOR LOAD LIFTING IS NOT COMPLETE UNTIL BOOM SIDE LOADING POSSIBILITY HAS
BEEN ELIMINATED. SIDE LOADING OR DRAGGING CAN CAUSE EQUIPMENT FAILURE AND SERIOUS
INJURY OR DEATH.
4.
LIFT LOAD: Lift load slowly using the following guidelines:
a. Use Boom for lifting and lowering.
b. Keep Load in sight or in sight of designated signalman at all times.
c. Pause when load is no more than one foot above rest position to observe any down drift, load imbalance, or shifting. If
any of these conditions are observed lower the load and take corrective action before resuming the lifting operation.
WARNING
DO NOT PROCEED WITH LOAD LIFTING IF ANY DOWN DRIFT, LOAD IMBALANCE, OR DRIFTING IS
OBSERVED. CORRECT ANY OF THESE CONDITIONS BEFORE CONTINUING. FAILURE TO DO SO IS A LIFE
THREATENING HAZARD.
d.
Raise Load to clear all obstacles in the intended travel path. Never raise load higher than necessary for safe clearance.
5.
ROTATE CRANE: With load elevated to desired height rotate crane using a cautious speed and damping all swaying
when desired location is reached. Avoid abrupt starts and stops.
CAUTION
WHEN CRANE ROTATION IS STOPPED SWAY WILL RESULT. SWAYING MUST BE DAMPED BY SLOW
STOPPING AND THEN ROTATING CRANE SLIGHTLY (INCHING) IN THE DIRECTION OF THE SWAY. TO
NEGLECT THIS MANEUVER CAUSES BOOM SIDE LOADING EFFECT PREVIOUSLY NOTED.
6.
EXTEND LOAD: When desired crane-load alignment with load landing site is reached boom extension must not exceed
specified load-reach capacity.
7.
LOWER LOAD: Using care to assure correct load placement, lower load at reasonable speed using boom.

AND MAINTENANCE MANUAL FOR DUNBAR CRANE M1023 Page 12 of 14 HYDRAULIC OIL REPLACEMENT Hydraulic oil

HYDRAULIC OIL REPLACEMENT

Hydraulic oil in the unit reservoir should be changed every six months or after 800 hours of service, and after any major hydraulic component failure.

In addition to regular hydraulic oil replacement, the oil should be periodically sampled and examined for breakdown, sludge, and water contamination. If any of these conditions are observed the oil should be changed between service intervals.

Hydraulic oil replacement and system purging is as follows:

1. Prepare for procedure by having sufficient new oil on hand to completely fill the unit reservoir, cylinders, lines, and other hydraulic components; and extra oil to allow for loss. Also have a receptacle of adequate size to catch all waste oil.

2. Select a vehicle parking location which will provide secure outrigger footing and allow full extension of the crane unit to the side horizontally and to full elevation range.

3. Park vehicle on selected location, extend outriggers full stroke where applicable, and extend crane to its maximum horizontal side reach position. Shut off system power.

4. With waste oil container in place remove drain plug in bottom of reservoir and remove dipstick to allow air flow. When reservoir has drained completely remove reservoir inspection cover. Remove suction strainer and wipe clean. Wipe reservoir and suction strainer bowl clean with lint free cloth. Replace suction strainer and inspection port. Replace plug.

5. Disconnect, drain, and reconnect pump pressure hoses. Replace return line canister filter element. Make sure all connections are secure.

Page 13 of 14
NOTICE
Purging the hydraulic system consists of supplying new oil to the lines and components via the reservoir while the return line is
disconnected and the old oil is diverted to a waste container. During this procedure the oil level in the reservoir should be
maintained at no less than 1/3 of reservoir capacity to insure no air introduction to the system.
6. Fill reservoir to “Full” mark on dipstick and check drain plug to assure there are no leaks.
7. Disconnect the reservoir return line hose and securely direct the oil flow to the waste container.
8. Power the system and with slow speed:
1) Retract extension booms fully; 2) Horizontally rotate crane 90°; 3) elevate inner boom to fullest height;
4) Lower inner boom to its lowest position; and 5) Retract outriggers. The system is not fully purged.
9. Shut system power off. Reconnect return line and check oil level. Fill reservoir to “Full” as required.
REGULAR INSPECTION
It is recommended that the equipment user establish a regular maintenance inspection schedule and an appropriate record system
of the same. A regular preventive maintenance schedule for this unit is provided in this manual. The user may wish to expand
upon it but at no time should the points outlined be omitted. It is also important that records be routinely kept of these inspections
and actions taken.
In addition to a regular inspection schedule it may be necessary to perform special inspections of the unit if it is subjected to
periods of unusually heavy use, long periods of idleness, or is damaged in any way.

Whenever performing service on this vehicle, make certain it has first been placed in service position. Basic service and maintenance procedures are illustrated in the maintenance manuals. These are to be performed at regular intervals based on hours of operation. For further details on service and necessary major component adjustments (i.e. engine, transmission, axles, etc.) see respective sections in this manual. Read and become familiar with them. Any further questions, contact your local Getman Distributor.

The viscosity of the oil is greatly influenced by the ambient temperature, the choice of SAE-grade should be governed by the ambient temperature of the engine site (see diagram). If temperatures temporarily fall below the limit of the SAE grade selected, engine will not be damaged. However, starting performance will be affected. During winter operation viscosity grade should be governed by ambient temperature when starting engine.
