There are several specific safety messages on this machine. The exact location of the hazards and the description of the hazards are reviewed in this section. Please become familiarized with all safety messages.

Make sure that all the safety messages are legible. Clean the safety messages or replace the safety messages if you cannot read the words. Replace the illustrations if the illustrations are not legible. When you clean the safety messages, use a cloth, water, and soap. Do not use solvent, gasoline, or other harsh chemicals to clean the safety messages. Solvents, gasoline, or harsh chemicals could loosen the adhesive that secures the safety message. Loose adhesive will allow the safety message to fall.

Replace any safety message that is damaged, or missing. If a safety message is attached to a part that is replaced, install a safety message on the replacement part. Any AVSpare dealer can provide new safety messages.

Hand Crush Hazard (1)

This safety message is on each side of the drop-down arm.



Illustration 4g01768215

------ WARNING! ------

Hand crush hazard, keep hand back. Could cause serious injury or death.


Do Not Operate (2)

This safety message is on the right side on the rear ROPS post.



Illustration 5g01370904

------ WARNING! ------

Do not operate or work on this equipment unless you have read and understand the instructions and warnings in the Operation and Maintenance Manual. Failure to follow the instructions or heed the warnings could result in injury or death. Contact any Cat dealer for replacement manuals. Proper care is your responsibility.


Unplanned Blade Movement (3)

This safety message is positioned above the main switch panel on the right side of the operator compartment.



Illustration 6g01379159

------ WARNING! ------

Personal injury could result from sudden movement of the blade when the centershift lockpin is released. To prevent unexpected blade movement and possible injury, lower the blade to the ground before you unlock the centershift linkage. See the Operation and Maintenance manual for complete instructions before releasing the centershift lockpin.


Refer to centershift lock switch inOperation and Maintenance Manual, "Operator Controls" for more information.

Improper Connections For Jump Start Cables (4)

This safety message is positioned on the right side of the machine on the right side of the service center.



Illustration 7g01370909

------ WARNING! ------

Explosion Hazard! Improper jumper cable connections can cause an explosion resulting in serious injury or death. Batteries may be located in separate compartments. Refer to the Operation and Maintenance Manual for the correct jump starting procedure.


Refer to Operation and Maintenance Manual, "Engine Starting with Jump Start Cables" for more information.

No Clearance (5)

This safety message is positioned at the front right and the front left of the engine compartment.



Illustration 8g01371644

------ WARNING! ------

Stay back a safe distance. No clearance for a person in this area when the machine turns. Severe injury or death from crushing could occur.


Product Link (6) (If Equipped)

This safety message is attached to the front left ROPS post.



Illustration 9g01370917

------ WARNING! ------

This machine is equipped with a AVSpare Product Link communication device. When electric detonators are used, this communication device should be deactivated within 12 m (40 ft) of a blast site for satellite-based systems and within 3 m (10 ft) of a blast site for cellular based systems, or within the distance mandated under applicable legal requirements. Failure to do so could cause interference with blasting operations and result in serious injury or death.

In cases where the type of Product Link module cannot be identified, AVSpare recommends that the device be disabled no less than 12 m (40 ft) from the blast perimeter.


Seat Belt (7)

This safety message is attached to the front left ROPS post.



Illustration 10g01371636

------ WARNING! ------

A seat belt should be worn at all times during machine operation to prevent serious injury or death in the event of an accident or machine overturn. Failure to wear a seat belt during machine operation may result in serious injury or death.


Refer to Operation and Maintenance Manual, "Seat Belt" for more information.

Do Not Weld On The ROPS/FOPS Structure (8)

This safety message is attached to the front left ROPS post.



Illustration 11g01211894

------ WARNING! ------

Structural damage, an overturn, modification, alteration, or improper repair can impair this structure's protection capability thereby voiding this certification. Do not weld on or drill holes in the structure. This will void the certification. Consult your Cat dealer to determine this structure's limitations without voiding its certification.


This machine has been certified to the standards that are listed on the certification film. The maximum mass of the machine, which includes the operator and the attachments without a payload, should not exceed the mass on the certification film.

Refer to Operation and Maintenance Manual, "Guards (Operator Protection)" for more information.

Engine Coolant (9)

This safety message is positioned on the underside of the radiator cap access cover on top of the engine compartment.



Illustration 12g01371640

------ WARNING! ------

Pressurized system! Hot coolant can cause serious burns, injury or death. To open the cooling system filler cap, stop the engine and wait until the cooling system components are cool. Loosen the cooling system pressure cap slowly in order to relieve the pressure. Read and understand the Operation and Maintenance Manual before performing any cooling system maintenance.


Refer to Operation and Maintenance Manual, "Cooling System Coolant Level - Check" for more information.

Accumulator (10)

This safety message is on the blade cushion accumulator which is on the left-hand side of the front frame.



Illustration 13g01325881

------ WARNING! ------

High Pressure Cylinder.

Rapid discharging from disconnecting or disassembly can result in personal injury or death. See your AVSpare dealer for tools and instructions for relieving pressure or charging. Precharge only with dry nitrogen gas.


Refer to Operation and Maintenance Manual, "Blade Cushion Accumulator - Check" for more information.

Accumulator (11)

This safety message is positioned on the brake accumulators. The brake accumulators are at the rear of the cab.



Illustration 14g01371642

------ WARNING! ------

Hydraulic accumulator contains gas and oil under high pressure. Improper removal or repair procedures could cause severe injury. To remove or repair, instructions in the service manual must be followed. Special equipment is required for testing and charging.


Refer to Operation and Maintenance Manual, "Brake Accumulator - Check" for more information.

No Clearance (12)

This safety message is positioned on the left side of the machine on the engine enclosure.



Illustration 15g01371647

------ WARNING! ------

Connect the steering frame lock between the front and the rear frames before lifting, transporting, or servicing the machine in the articulation area. Disconnect the steering frame lock and secure the steering frame lock before resuming operation. Severe injury or death could occur.


Hydraulic System Oil (13)

This safety message is positioned near the hydraulic tank filler cap and this safety message is located near the hydraulic tank sight gauge.



Illustration 16g01637005

------ WARNING! ------

If the incorrect hydraulic oil viscosity is installed and the machine is operated in cold temperatures, the machine hydraulic system may not respond at normal speeds. Sluggish machine control could result in injury or death. Use the correct oil viscosity for operating the machine in cold weather, and warm-up the machine before operating the machine in cold weather. See Operation and Maintenance Manual, "Engine and Machine Warm-Up" for more information on operation in cold temperatures. See Operation and Maintenance Manual, "Lubricant Viscosities" for the recommended oil viscosity. If the hydraulic oil needs to be changed, see Operation and Maintenance Manual, "Hydraulic System Oil - Change" for the procedure to change the hydraulic system oil.


Recoil Spring (14)

This safety message is positioned at the bottom of the parking brake housing.



Illustration 17g01379131

------ WARNING! ------

This housing contains a highly compressed spring that can cause injury or death. Do not disassemble this parking brake housing until you have read and understand the correct procedure for disassembly in the Service Manual.
