85. Other Demolition Methods
Scattering and Concealment. Remove all easily
accessible parts, such as fuel pump, fuel filters, oil filter,
air cleaner, and batteries. Scatter them through dense
foliage, bury them in the ground, or throw them in a
lake, stream, or other body of water.
Burning. Pack rags, clothing, or canvas around
the engine, conveyors, and electrical panels. Saturate
this packing with gasoline, oil, or diesel fuel and ignite.
Submersion. Totally submerge the jaw crusher
in a body of water, if possible, 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 jaw 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
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
