Unpacking the JCS 1200 Platform
The platform is shipped in a cardboard box strapped securely to a wood pallet. Plastic straps secure the top and bottom in place. The JCS 1200 chassis is bolted to this pallet. Quick Start installation instructions and a cardboard accessory box are also included in the shipping container.
The shipping container measures 32.5 in. (82.6 cm) high, 35 in. (88.9 cm) wide, and 27 in. (68.6 cm) deep. The total weight of the container containing the JCS 1200 platform and accessories can range from 229 lb (99.82 kg) to 350 lb (158.8 kg).
Note: The JCS 1200 platform is maximally protected inside the shipping crate. Do not unpack it until you are ready to begin installation.
To unpack the JCS 1200 platform:
- Move the shipping container to a staging area as close to the installation site as possible, where you have enough room to remove the components from the chassis. While the chassis is bolted to the pallet, you can use a forklift or pallet jack to move it.
- Position the shipping container with the wooden pallet on the bottom and the corrugated cardboard facing up.
- Remove the plastic straps that hold the top and bottom of the shipping container in place.
- Remove the corrugated container cover and set it aside.
- Remove the foam covering the top of the JCS 1200 platform.
- Remove the accessory box and the Quick Start documentation.
- Verify the parts received against the lists in Verifying Parts Received for the JCS 1200 Platform.
- Remove the vapor corrosion inhibitor (VCI) packs attached to the pallet. Be careful not to break the VCI packs open.
- To remove the bolts and screws from the brackets holding the chassis on the pallet, use a 1/2-in. socket wrench and a number 2 Phillips screwdriver.
- Store the brackets and bolts inside the accessory box.
- Save the corrugated shipping container cover, pallet, and packing materials in case you need to move or ship the JCS 1200 platform later. The packaging utilizes recyclable materials in the design and should be disposed of properly. Recycle packaging according to your local, state, or country specific laws and regulations.
