86. Other Demolition Methods
a Scattering and Concealment. Remove all easily accessible parts such as injection pump, filters,
generator, starter, V-belts, electrical switches and contractors, and conveyor or belts. Scatter them through
dense foliage, bury them in dirt or sand, or throw them in a lake, stream, or other body of water.
b. Burning. Pack rags, clothing, or canvas under and around the conveyor belts, tires, electric motors,
fuel tank, and engine. Saturate this packing with gasoline, oil, or diesel fuel and ignite.
c Submersion. Totally submerge the roll crusher, if possible, in a body of water to create water
damage and provide concealment. Saltwater will damage metal parts more than fresh water.
All operators should receive thorough training in the destruction of the roll crusher. Refer to TM
750-244-3. Simulated destruction, using all of the methods listed above, should be included in the operator
training program. It must be emphasized in training that demolition operations are usually necessitated by
critical situations when time available for carrying out destruction is limited. For this reason, it is necessary that
operators be thoroughly familiar with all methods of destruction of equipment and be able to carry out
demolition instructions without reference to this or any other manual.
