THE BEST DEFENSE AGAINST EXHAUST POISONING IS ADEQUATE VENTILATION
High pressure hydraulics operate this equipment at 3500 psi. Never disconnect any
hydraulic line or fitting without first dropping pressure to zero. A high pressure oil
stream can pierce body and cause severe injury to personnel.
Diesel or hydraulic fluid under pressure can penetrate skin or damage eyes. Fluid
leaks under pressure may not be visible. Use a piece of cardboard or wood to find
leaks, but do not use a bare hand. Wear safety goggles for protection. If fluid
enters skin or eye, get immediate medical attention.
Do not move under any hydraulically-controlled implement when making
adjustments or repairs to hydraulic system. Lower implement and work from above.
If implement must be raised for access, always block to support. If implement
drops, injury to personnel can result.
Dry cleaning solvent (P-D-680) is TOXIC and flammable. Wear protective goggles
and gloves; use only in well-ventilated area; avoid contact with skin, eyes, and
clothes, and do not breathe vapors. Keep away from heat or flame. Never smoke
when using solvent; the flash point for type I dry cleaning solvent is 100 F (38 C)
and for type II is 138 F (50 C). Failure to do so may result in injury or death to
If personnel become dizzy while using cleaning solvent, immediately get fresh air
and medical help. If solvent contacts skin or clothes, flush with cold water. If
solvent contacts eyes, immediately flush eyes with water and get immediate medical
When operating the air conditioner, open side window slightly to allow fresh air to enter the

Starting fluid is toxic and highly flammable. Container is pressurized. NEVER heat
container and NEVER discharge starting fluid in confined areas or near open flame.
Severe injury to personnel may result.
Use only the cold weather starting aids provided on your crane. The use of aerosol
spray or other types of starting fluids containing ether/volatiles can cause explosions
