Allow the engine and hydraulic oil to warm up at least five minutes before
applying a load.
Idling the diesel engine for long periods of time not
only wastes fuel but fouls the injector nozzles.
Unburned diesel fuel can cause carbon formation,
diluted oil, lacquer formation, or gummy deposits on
Unburned diesel fuel also contributes to a rapid
accumulation of sludge in the engine. If it is
necessary to idle the diesel engine, maintain the
engine speed at no less than 800 RPM.
Allow the engine to operate at fast idle speed for approximately five minutes
to avoid high internal heat rise and allow for heat dissipation.
Position the IGNITION Switch (50) to the OFF position.
Leaving the crane with the BATTERY DISCONNECT
switch in the on position may result in the batteries
becoming discharged within a relatively short time
It is therefore recommended that the
BATTERY DISCONNECT switch be placed in the off
position at the end of each work day.
Position the BATTERY DISCONNECT switch in the off position.
DRIVING THE CRANE - CARRIER CAB.
General. The crane is designed for travel on primary and secondary roads and for
off-road travel. Consult local vehicular codes and regulations in your area before traveling on public
Although the crane is designed for rough terrain travel, the operator must be
extremely cautious and aware of the terrain over which the crane is operating.
Do not drive the crane with the boom off center.
Automatic oscillation lockout will occur making the
crane subject to tipping on uneven ground.
