Do Not Operate Unless:
You learn and practice the principles of safe
machine operation contained in this operator’s manual. 1 Avoid hazardous situations. 2 Always perform a pre-operation
inspection. Know and understand the pre-operation inspection before going on to the next section. 3 Always perform function tests prior to use. 4 Inspect the workplace. 5 Only use the machine as it was intended.

Pre-operation Inspection Fundamentals
It is the responsibility of the operator to perform a pre-operation inspection and routine maintenance.
The pre-operation inspection is a visual inspection performed by the operator prior to each work shift. The inspection is designed to discover if anything is apparently wrong with a machine before the operator performs the function tests.
The pre-operation inspection also serves to determine if routine maintenance procedures are required. Only routine maintenance items specified in this manual may be performed by the operator.
Refer to the list on the next page and check each of the items.
If damage or any unauthorized variation from factory delivered condition is discovered, the machine must be tagged and removed from service.
Repairs to the machine may only be made by a qualified service technician, according to the manufacturer’s specifications. After repairs are completed, the operator must perform a preoperation inspection again before going on to the function tests.
Scheduled maintenance inspections shall be performed by qualified service technicians, according to the manufacturer’s specifications and the requirements listed in the responsibilities manual.

intended.

Fundamentals
The Operating Instructions section provides instructions for each aspect of machine operation. It is the operator’s responsibility to follow all the safety rules and instructions in the operator’s, safety, and responsibilities manuals.
Using the machine for anything other than lifting personnel, along with their tools and materials, to an aerial work site is unsafe and dangerous.
Only trained and authorized personnel should be permitted to operate a machine. If more than one operator is expected to use a machine at different times in the same work shift, they must all be qualified operators and are all expected to follow all safety rules and instructions in the operator’s, safety, and responsibilities manuals. That means every new operator should perform a preoperation inspection, function tests, and a workplace inspection before using the machine.

Driving on a slope
Determine the uphill, downhill and side slope ratings for the machine and determine the slope grade.
Maximum slope rating, platform downhill (gradeability):
4WD: 45% (24°)
Maximum slope rating, platform uphill:
4WD: 30% (17°)
Maximum side slope rating:
25% (14°)
Note: Slope rating is subject to ground conditions with one person in the platform and adequate traction. Additional platform weight may reduce slope rating. The term gradeability applies to the counterweight uphill configuration only.
Be sure the boom is below horizontal and the platform is between the circle-end wheels.
Move the drive speed select switch to machine on incline symbol.
To determine the slope grade:
Measure the slope with a digital inclinometer OR use the following procedure.
You will need:
· carpenter’s level · straight piece of wood, at least 3 feet/1 m long
· tape measure
Lay the piece of wood on the slope.

At the downhill end, lay the level on the top edge of the piece of wood and lift the end until the piece of wood is level. While holding the piece of wood level, measure the vertical distance from the bottom of the piece of wood to the ground. Divide the tape measure distance (rise) by the length of the piece of wood (run) and multiply by 100. Example:
Piece of wood = 144 inches (3.6 m) Run = 144 inches (3.6 m) Rise = 12 inches (0.3 m) 12 in ÷ 144 in = 0.083 x 100 = 8.3% grade 0.3 m ÷ 3.6 m = 0.083 x 100 = 8.3% grade If the slope exceeds the maximum slope or side slope rating, then the machine must be winched or transported up or down the slope. See Transport and Lifting section.
