BATMThree Quick Start


You’ve received your new BATMThree and you’re eager to get started.

So, let’s get started!

1. Handling arrangements:

The BATMThree weighs a MINIMUM 105kg (231 lbs) before packaging!

The BATMThree will be shipped differently depending on your location. The BATM itself is heavy - about 105kg (231 lbs). This may require 2 or 3 people to unload it depending upon it’s area of deployment! The BATM may be crated, or wrapped in cardboard & plastic wrap.

Please plan accordingly, and recruit a few extra hands to assist in the uncrating process.

European Shipping:

The BATM will arrive standing up on a pallet, wrapped in cardboard & shrink-wrap.

Check the tilt sensors upon receipt to ensure that the machine hasn’t been tossed about.

Note any shipping damage or tilt variations on the shipping receipt.

Overseas Shipping:

The BATM will arrive in a crate about the size & shape of a coffin on a special custom pallet.

Check the tilt sensors upon receipt to ensure that the machine hasn’t been tossed about.

Note any shipping damage or tilt variations on the shipping receipt.

Typical total weight: 187kg (412 lbs)

2. Uncrating (Overseas shipping only)



  • T-20 Torx screw bit (and associated tools).

  • 2 people (minimum).

Remove the screws & top lid.

  • Use a prybar to lift off the top.

  • Take care not to injure your digits!

Remove the side screws & base panel.

  • Removing the wood panel on the base side eases removal of the BATM.

Carefully remove the waterproofing plastic wrap, keeping the sharp edge of the blade pointing AWAY from the BATM.

  • Don’t cut yourself!

Stand it up.

  • Use 2 people (minimum).

Notify the Sales Department that you’ve received the BATMThree, and advise them of any shipping damage or tiltage. You’ll also need to let them know how you want to connect your BATM to CAS. If you don’t have a GB Operator account yet, you’ll also need that setup as well. Since these things aren’t instantaneous, doing it now will expedite the final process of setting up your BATM.
