2. Safety Guidelines
Suffocation from exhaust fumes
• Exhaust fumes from the engine on this diesel generating set contain many elements that have
been proven to be harmful to humans. Do not operate this equipment in poorly ventilated areas
such as inside a room or in a tunnel.
• Do not direct exhaust fumes toward people or buildings.
Electrical Shock
• Do not come in contact with or allow anything else to come in contact with the output terminals
during operation.
• Be sure to place the protective covers over the output terminals and fasten them securely while
operating this equipment.
• Do not insert metal objects (such as pins or wires) into plug-in receptacles.
• Do not touch the wiring or any electrical or electronic parts inside the equipment during
operation.
• There is always a danger of being electrocuted by a short-circuit to ground. Be sure to test the
generator’s insulation resistance to ground periodically.
• Before connecting or disconnecting load cables from the output terminals, always turn the
output circuit breaker to the OFF position, stop the engine, and remove the engine key. The
person performing the cable disconnect should always keep the key.
• Before performing any equipment check or maintenance, stop the engine, and remove the
engine key. The person performing the check or maintenance should always keep the key.
Injuries
• To avoid injuries by unintentional contact with the cooling fan or fan belt, close and lock all
doors while operating this equipment.
• When lifting the equipment, always use the installed lifting hook. The lifting hook is designed
to lift only the generator. Do not lift any additional added weight such as fuel tanks
and/or trailers.
Injuries to eyes and skin
•
Battery fluid contains diluted sulfuric acid. Avoid contact with eyes, skin or clothing. If contact
with the acid does occur, especially with the eyes, flush immediately with large volumes of
water and contact a physician.
Fire
• This equipment uses diesel (a flammable liquid) as a fuel. When refueling, always stop the
engine, and maintain an adequate distance from flames or spark producing devices. Always
wait until the engine cools down before refueling.
• Always immediately wipe up any diesel fuel or engine oil that is spilled. Do not use this
equipment if there are any leaks. Repair the equipment before further use.
• Temperatures around the muffler and exhaust piping can get extremely high. Keep any
flammable items (such as fuel, gas, paint, etc.) away from these areas.
Shindaiwa Construction Products

•
The battery may emit highly explosive gases. Never expose it to flames or spark producing
devices.
• This equipment must be operated only on flat surfaces and at least 3 feet away from any
obstructions (such as walls) that could hinder airflow.
• Do not connect the AC output to any indoor wiring without an approved disconnecting device
between the generator and the building’s electrical service.
Burns
• To avoid sustaining burns from hot vapor, do not open the radiator cap while operating or
immediately after stopping this equipment.
• Due to extremely high temperatures, do not touch the engine or muffler while operating or
immediately after stopping the equipment.
• When checking or changing engine oil, always stop the engine, and wait until the engine cools
down. Opening either the line to the oil gauge or the oil filler cap during operation may cause
severe burns due to hot oil.
Injuries
• Do not use the tie downs for lifting. They are not designed to hold the weight of the equipment
and using them for lifting may cause the equipment to fall.
• Always place the equipment on a flat and stable surface to keep it from sliding.
• When starting the engine, disconnect the supplied load and set the output circuit breaker to the
OFF position.
• Do not move the equipment during operation.
• When performing equipment checks and/or maintenance, always stop the engine.
• Do not operate this equipment if it is being modified or if any parts have been removed.
WARNING KEEP TERMINAL BLOCK FREE OF DUST AND
MOISTURE AT ALL TIMES!!
Always keep environmental contaminants such as dust and moisture from building up on the
terminal block and generator control box or arcing from the terminals to the generator control
box or terminal block mounting screws may result.
