Attach a Special Instruction, SEHS7332, "Do Not Operate" warning tag or a similar warning tag to the engine start switch or to the controls before you service the machine or before you repair the machine. These warning tags are available from your AVSpare dealer.

Know the width of your equipment in order to maintain proper clearance when you operate the machine near fences or near boundary obstacles.

Wear a hard hat, protective glasses, and other protective equipment, as required.

Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry that can snag on controls or on other parts of the machine.

Make sure that all protective guards and all covers are secured in place on the machine.

Keep the machine free from foreign material. Remove debris, oil, tools, and other items from the deck, from walkways, and from steps.

Secure all loose items such as lunch boxes, tools, and other items that are not a part of the machine.

Know the appropriate work site hand signals and the personnel that are authorized to give the hand signals. Accept hand signals from one person only.

Do not smoke when you service an air conditioner. Also, do not smoke if refrigerant gas may be present. Inhaling the fumes that are released from a flame that contacts air conditioner refrigerant can cause bodily harm or death. Inhaling gas from air conditioner refrigerant through a lighted cigarette can cause bodily harm or death.

Never put maintenance fluids into glass containers. Drain all liquids into a suitable container.

Obey all local regulations for the disposal of liquids.

Use all cleaning solutions with care. Report all necessary repairs.

Do not allow unauthorized personnel on the machine.

Unless you are instructed otherwise, perform the maintenance under the following conditions:

  • The machine is parked on level ground.

  • The attachment controls are in the HOLD position.

  • The transmission control is in the NEUTRAL position.

  • The parking brake is engaged.

  • The engine is stopped.

  • The engine start switch key is turned off and the engine start switch key is removed.

  • The battery disconnect switch is in the OFF position and the disconnect switch key is removed.

Pressure Air

Pressure air can cause personal injury. When pressure air is used for cleaning, wear a protective face shield, protective clothing, and protective shoes.

The maximum air pressure for cleaning purposes must be below 205 kPa (30 psi) .

Fluid Penetration

Always use a board or cardboard when you check for a leak. Leaking fluid that is under pressure can penetrate body tissue. Fluid penetration can cause serious injury and possible death. A pin hole leak can cause severe injury. If fluid is injected into your skin, you must get treatment immediately. Seek treatment from a doctor that is familiar with this type of injury.

Asbestos Information

AVSpare equipment and replacement parts that are shipped from AVSpare are asbestos free. AVSpare recommends the use of only genuine AVSpare replacement parts. Use the following guidelines when you handle any replacement parts that contain asbestos or when you handle asbestos debris.

Use caution. Avoid inhaling dust that might be generated when you handle components that contain asbestos fibers. Inhaling this dust can be hazardous to your health. The components that may contain asbestos fibers are brake pads, brake bands, lining material, clutch plates, and some gaskets. The asbestos that is used in these components is usually bound in a resin or sealed in some way. Normal handling is not hazardous unless airborne dust that contains asbestos is generated.

If dust which may contain asbestos is present, there are several guidelines that should be followed.

Never use compressed air for cleaning. Avoid brushing materials that contain asbestos or grinding materials that contain asbestos. Use a wet method to clean up asbestos debris. A vacuum that is equipped with the high efficiency particulate air filter (HEPA filter) can also be used.

Use exhaust ventilation on permanent machining jobs.

Wear an approved respirator if there is no other way to control the dust.

Comply with applicable rules and regulations for the work place. In the USA, use Occupational Safety and Health Administration requirements. These OSHA requirements can be found in "29 CFR 1910.1001" .

Obey environmental regulations for disposal of asbestos.

Stay away from areas that might have asbestos particles in the air.
