REMAIN OPERABLE UNTIL THE HYDRAULIC OIL IN THE RESERVOIR IS DEPLETED.
RECOMMENDED PROCEDURE FOR OPERATING THE CRANE IF THE EQUALIZER LINE FAILS IS
1. Remain at operator's station as all functions can be accomplished.
2. Accelerate engine to normal operating RPM.
3. Maintain boom attitude (elevation) by activating boom elevation control. While holding boom at desired
attitude, activate swing, retract telescoped sections, operate hoist, as necessary, until load is safely
lowered to ground.
TELESCOPING THE BOOM.
POWER TELESCOPING SECTIONS MUST BE EXTENDED EQUALLY AT ALL TIMES TO COMPLY
WITH LOAD CHART MAXIMUM LIFTING CAPACITIES.
WHEN EXTENDING BOOM, LET OUT CABLE SIMULTANEOUSLY TO PREVENT TWO-BLOCKING
BOOM NOSE AND HOOK BLOCK.
CHECK LOAD CHART FOR MAXIMUM LOAD AT GIVEN RADIUS, BOOM ANGLE AND LENGTH
BEFORE EXTENDING BOOM WITH A LOAD.
Extending the Boom. To extend boom, TELESCOPE section control levers are "pushed forward" away
from operator, to OUT position and held until boom sections extend to desired length.
WHEN RETRACTING BOOM, LOAD WILL LOWER UNLESS CABLE IS TAKEN IN SIMULTANEOUSLY.
Retracting the Boom. To retract boom, TELESCOPE section control levers are "pulled back", toward
operator, to IN position and held until boom retracts to desired length.
