EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTION AND DATA.
SAFETY, CARE AND HANDLING. Most accidents involving machine operation are caused by failure to observe
basic safety rules or precautions. An accident can often be avoided by recognizing potentially hazardous situations before
an accident occurs. Improper operation is dangerous and could result in injury or death.
READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
AND WARNINGS BEFORE OPERATING THIS MACHINE.
Basic safety cautions are listed before the procedures to which they apply. Warning labels have also been put on the
machine to provide instructions and identify specific hazards, which if not heeded could cause bodily injury or DEATH.
These labels identify hazards during repair for an untrained mechanic, but there is no way to label the machine against all
such hazards. These warnings in the technical manual and on the machine are identified by the word WARNING.
Operations that may result in machine damage are identified by the labels on the machine and in this manual by the word
CAUTION. Every possible hazard cannot be anticipated. The warnings and cautions in this manual are therefore not all
inclusive. If you use a procedure, tool, device, or work method not specifically recommended, satisfy yourself that it is safe
for you and others. Make sure that the machine will not be damaged or made unsafe by the procedures
It is very important to know the weight of components. Do not lift heavy
components by hand. Use a hoist. When using a hoist, follow the
recommendations in the manual. Use lift tools as shown in illustrations to
get the correct balance of the component you lift. This makes your work
safer at all times. Never let a heavy component hang on a hoist. Lower it
onto blocks or stands. Make sure the component rests solidly. A sudden
fall can cause an accident.
When jacking up the vehicle, be sure to block the wheels at front and
rear. Always place earthmoving equipment moldboard assembly and
scarifier in lowered position when parking vehicle to prevent possible
injury to personnel and to prevent needless stress on hydraulic and
