Required clearance when lowering a 1-ton chain motor

When lowering a 1-ton chain motor, it is important to keep the area underneath and around the motor clear. The specific area that needs to be kept clear will depend on the size and shape of the chain motor, as well as the location and surrounding environment.

However, in general, it is recommended to keep a clear area of at least twice the length and width of the chain motor beneath and around it. This will help to ensure that there is enough space for the motor to lower safely without hitting any obstacles or people.

It is also important to ensure that the ground surface is stable and level, and free from any debris or obstacles that could interfere with the motor’s movement. If necessary, barriers or warning signs should be set up to keep people away from the area while the motor is being lowered.
