If The Machine Is Serviced Well, It Will Provide Safe And Efficient Operation!
1. Keep the machine clean. The process of cleaning will reveal loose bolts, hydraulic lines and fittings, and other trouble spots. Be especially careful to clean any oil, grease, dirt or mud from the handrails, stepping points and operator's platform to prevent falls. Clean any grease or oil from the controls so that a sure grip is available when any control is needed.

2. When cleaning the machine with diesel fuel, be careful not to get any fuel on hydraulic hoses, tires, electric wires and other plastic or rubber materials. Diesel fuel can cause these materials to deteriorate rapidly.
3. Always keep the operator's platform free from grease, oil, loose rags and loose tools. These can also cause falls.
4. Shut the engine down and place all control levers at neutral or off before cleaning, adjusting or servicing the machine, unless the work to be done requires otherwise. If the engine must be running, ALWAYS HAVE TWO PERSONS WORKING, ONE PERSON AT THE CONTROLS. Then, if something goes wrong, the person at the controls can shut the engine down immediately.

5. Refuel the machine only with the engine stopped. Never smoke or have an open flame in the area when refueling. Always ground the spout against the filler neck to avoid a static electricity spark.

5. Refill the engine radiator only with the engine stopped. Turn the radiator cap slightly to the first stop to relieve the pressure before removing the cap. If the engine is hot, steam can spray outward under great pressure.

7. Never search for a hydraulic oil leak with your hands. Oil escaping from a small hole can be almost invisible and can penetrate the skin. Always wear gloves and use a piece of cardboard to find leaks. If you are struck by high pressure hydraulic oil, see a doctor immediately. Serious reactions are possible if not treated immediately.
8. Never use hand sockets instead of impact sockets on impact wrenches. Chrome sockets will eventually shatter under the tremendous energy transfer of today's high performance impact wrenches. The hard chrome surface of these sockets will also wear the square drive faces of the tool spindle.
