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 of 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 visible. 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 of the machine that is replaced, install a safety message on the replacement part. Any AVSpare dealer can provide new safety messages.

Do Not Operate (1)

Safety message (1) is located outside of the left side armrest.



Illustration 3g01379128

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

Do not operate or work on this equipment unless you have read and understand the instructions and warnings in the Operation and Maintenance Manuals. Failure to follow the instructions or heed the warnings could result in serious injury or death.


Electrical Power Lines (2)

Safety message (2) is located on the right side of the console and on the left center of the radiator guard.



Illustration 4g01412508

------ DANGER! ------

Electrocution Hazard! Keep the machine and attachments a safe distance from electrical power. Stay clear 3 m (10 ft) plus twice the line insulator length. Read and understand the instructions and warnings in the Operation and Maintenance Manual. Failure to follow the instructions and warnings will cause serious injury or death


Tipover Warning (3)

Safety message (3) is located on the left hand console on outside of armrest.



Illustration 5g01412503

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

The machine may tip and personal injury may occur if the maximum load capacities are exceeded. Load capacities assume that the machine is stationary on a level concrete surface with the counterweight extended. Lift capacities will decrease on slopes or soft ground.


See Operation and Maintenance Manual, "Lifting Capacities".

Crushing Hazard (4)

Safety message (4) is located on the right hand side of the Pipelayer frame.



Illustration 6g01378775

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

A crushing hazard exists when the boom sections are being retracted or extended. Stay clear of the boom when the machine is in operation. Failure to stay clear of the boom when the machine is operation can cause injury or death.


Hydraulic System Accumulator (5)

Safety message (5) is located under the boom on the right hand side of the machine.



Illustration 7g01372252

------ 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.


High Pressure Cylinder (6)

Safety message (6) is attached to the cover for each recoil spring compartment.



Illustration 8g01371642

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

Personal injury or death can result from grease under pressure.

Grease coming out of the relief valve under pressure can penetrate the body causing injury or death.

Do not watch the relief valve to see if grease is escaping. Watch the track or track adjustment cylinder to see if the track is being loosened.

Loosen the relief valve one turn only.

If track does not loosen, close the relief valve and contact your AVSpare dealer.


Compressed Recoil Spring (7)

Safety message (7) is located inside both track roller frames on each retainer.



Illustration 9g01379131

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

Personal injury or death can result from a compressed recoil spring being released suddenly using incorrect disassembly procedures.

A recoil spring that is still held in compression can result in the recoil spring being released unexpectedly with extreme force which could cause serious injury or death.

Make sure that the correct disassembly procedure is used, if a front track roller frame that has a crack in the parent metal or weld connection (or a tubular section that has separated from the front of the frame assembly) when the recoil spring is still held in compression.

Refer to Special Instruction, SMHS8273 which contains the disassembly procedure that must be used to decrease the possibility of injury while performing service on the track roller frame.


Hot Coolant Under Pressure (8)

Safety message (8) is located under the access door to the radiator cap.



Illustration 10g01424998

Seat Belt (11)

Safety message (11) is located on the left side of the console.



Illustration 13g01053367

------ 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.


Improper Connections for Jump Start Cables (12)

Safety message (12) is located inside the left side battery compartment.



Illustration 14g01370909

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

ROPS (13)

Safety message (13) is positioned on the vertical support of the ROPS on the right side of the machine.



Illustration 15g01481276

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

Structural damage, an overturn, modification, alteration, or improper repair, can impair this structure's protective capability thereby voiding this certification. Do not weld on or drill holes in the structure. Consult a AVSpare 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.

A typical example of the certification film is shown above.

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

Product Link (14) (If Equipped)

This safety message is located inside the cab on the back right post, if equipped.
