Product | Specs | Operating | Safety
Power Lines Electrocution Hazard Maintain safe clearance from Electrical lines and apparatus. Allow for machine sway, rock or sag and electrical line swaying. The machine does not provide protection from contact with or proximity to an electrically charged conductor.
Maintain a clearance of at least 10 Feet (3 m) between any part of the machine or its load and any electrical line or apparatus carrying up to 50,000 volts. One foot additional clearance is required for every additional 30,000 volts or less.
Pre-Operational Read your manual. Understand what you have read - then begin operations.
Allow only authorized and qualified personnel to operate machine who have demonstrated that they understand safe and proper operation and maintenance of the unit.
Precautions to avoid all known hazards in the work area must be taken by the operator and his supervisor before starting the work.
Ensure a Pre-Start inspection and function check are performed prior to placing the machine into operation.
Wind and Temperature Tip Over Hazard Do not add notice boards or similar items to the platform. Addition of such items increases the exposed wind area of the machine.
Do not operate machine when wind conditions exceed 30 MPH (48 KMH)
Some JLG Products can be operated in nominal ambient temperatures of 0 degree F to 104 degree F (-20 degree C to -40 degree C). Consult Factory to optimize operation outside this range.
Decals and Controls Read and obey all dangers, warnings, cautions and operating instructions on machine and in the Operators & Safety manual.
Be familiar with location and operation of ground station controls.
Do not operate any machine on which danger, warning, caution or instruction placards or decals are missing or illegible.
Driving Crushing Hazard Watch for obstructions around machine and overhead when driving.
Always position boom over rear (Drive) axle in line with direction of travel. Remember, if boom is over front (Steer) axle, direction of steer and drivemovement will be opposite from normal operation.
Do not use high speed drive when in restricted or close quarters, or when driving in reverse.
Keep non-operating personnel at least 6 feet (2 M) away from machine during driving operations.
Check travel path for persons, holes, bumps, drop-offs, observations, debris,and coverings which may conceal holes and other hazards.
Operations Read your manual. Understand what you have read - then begin operations.
Operation with platform raised is restricted to a firm, level, and uniform surface.
Never position ladders, steps, or similar items on unit to provide additional reach for any purpose.
When riding in or working from platform, both feet must be firmly positioned on the floor.
Ensure machine is positioned on a firm, level, and uniform supporting surface before raising or extending the platform.
Check clearance above, on sides, and bottom of platform when raising, lowering, swinging and telescoping.
Never "Slam" a control switch or lever through neutral to the opposite direction. Always return switch to neutral and stop; then move switch to thedesired position. Operate levers with slow, even pressure.
Barricading Crushing Hazard
The operator is responsible to avoid operating machine over ground personnel,and to warn them not to work, walk or stand under a raised boom orplatform. Position barricades on floor if necessary.
Ensure that operators of other overhead and floor machines are aware of the aerial platforms presence. Disconnect power to overhead cranes. Position barricades on floor if necessary.
Transfer to a Structure Falling Hazard To avoid falling - use extreme caution when entering or leaving platform above ground. Enter or exit thru gate only. Platform floor must be within1 foot(30 cm) of adjacent - safe and secure - structure. Allow for platform vertical movement as weight is transferred to or from platform.
Transfers between a structure and the aerial platform expose operators to fall hazards. This practice should be discouraged wherever possible. Where transfer must be accomplished to perform the job, two lanyards with an approved fall protection device will be used. One lanyard should be attached to the aerial platform. The other to the structure. The lanyard that is attached to the aerial platform should not be disconnected until such time as thetransfer to the structure is complete. Otherwise, do not step outside of platform.
Capacity and Carrying Loads Tip Over Hazard
Ensure that ground conditions are adequate to support the maximum tire load indicated on the tire load decals located on the chassis adjacent to each wheel.
Never exceed manufacturers rated platform capacity - refer to capacity decal on machine. Distribute loads evenly on platform floor.
Do not carry materials on platform railing unless approved by JLG Industries
Modifying Do not remove, modify, or disable foot switch by blocking or any other means.
Modification or alteration of an aerial platform shall be made only with prior written permission of JLG Industries, Inc.
Improper Use Never "WALK" the boom to gain access to or leave platform.
Never push or pull the machine or other objects by telescoping the boom.
Never use the machine for any purpose other than positioning personnel, their tools and equipment.
Never operate a malfunctioning machine. If a malfunction occurs, shut down the machine, red tag it, and notify proper authorities.
Do not assist a stuck or disabled machine by pushing or pulling except bypulling at chassis tie-down lugs.
Never attempt using the machine as a crane. Structural damage or tipping may occur.
Do not use the lift, swing, or telescope functions for the boom, to move either the machine or other objects.
Towing and Hauling
Do not tow a machine except in an emergency. See the applicable section in the applicable Operators & Safety Manual for emergency towing procedures.
Lock turntable before traveling long distance or before hauling machine on a truck or trailer.
