Xerographic printing machines with more than one feeder generally load paper on trays that withdraw from the machine horizontally on ball slides. Trays are often located in the lower half of the machine, requiring an operator to bend down to load the trays. Besides being in an awkward and uncomfortable position for loading reams of paper, machine tray locations often contribute to poorly loaded paper, which is a primary source of feeder unreliability .
