Improper lifting and improper tie-downs can allow the load to shift or fail and cause injury or damage. Use only properly rated cables and slings with lift and tie down points provided.
Follow the instructions in Operation and Maintenance Manual, "Lifting and Tying Down the Machine" for the proper technique for securing the machine. Refer to Operation and Maintenance Manual, "Specifications" for specific weight information.
Improper lifting or tiedowns can allow load to shift and can cause injury and damage.
Engage the parking brake before you sling the machine and before you secure the machine with tie-downs.
(A) Front tie-downs (2 places)
(B) Lifting a machine that has a ripper
(C) Lifting a machine without a ripper
(D) Side tie-downs (3 places)
(E) Rear tie-downs (2 places)
The crane should be positioned so that the machine may be lifted in a level plane. The spreader bars should be wide enough to prevent contact between the crane and the machine that is being lifted.
Use properly rated cables and properly rated slings to lift the machine. For a machine without a ripper (C), position the slings beneath the front of the track and beneath the rear of the track. For a machine with a ripper (B), position the slings beneath the front of the track and under the ripper at the rear of the machine. The ripper must be raised.
Use the front towing eye to secure the front tie-downs (A). Use the inside edge of the track shoe (D) to secure the side tie-downs at three places per side. Use the drawbar, the ripper, or the outer edge of the track shoe (E) to secure the rear tie-downs. Use corner protectors on sharp corners. When you use the ripper to tie down the machine, the ripper must be lowered.
Check all of the laws that govern the load characteristics (height, weight, width, and length).
Move the hydraulic lockout control (lever) to the LOCKED position.
