Know the Hazards
LOOK WHERE YOU'RE GOING
Always be alert to the area around you and watch where
you are driving. Be careful that you don't get pinned or
crushed between the truck and a fixed object such as a
wall or post.
AVOID FALLS AND TIPOVERS
Tipovers and falls are very serious accidents, you can be
crushed or even killed. The best way to prevent injury
is to know where you are at all times and follow the rules
of safe truck operation.
• Be extremely careful when working around docks,
dockboards and trailers.
• Stay away from the edge of docks and ramps.
USE YOUR TRUCK CAREFULLY
• Watch your hands and your feet. A foot or hand
caught between the truck and a fixed object will be
crushed or even cut off.
• Make sure dockboards are secure.
• Check that trailer wheels are chocked.
• Travel with the load or forks close to the ground.
Watch for overhead obstructions. Perform all truck
movements smoothly and at a speed that will give
you time to react in an emergency.
• An unloaded truck can tip over also. You must be just
as careful using an unloaded truck as you are using a
loaded one.
• Keep to the side of the truck while traveling power unit
first. Make certain the truck won't hit the back of your
leg or foot. Don't let the truck run over your foot.
• If traveling forks first, keep both hands on the control
handle and be careful when changing direction of
travel. Keep your feet clear of the truck.
• Keep your truck under control at all times. Operate
at a speed that allows you to stop safely. Be even more
careful on slippery or uneven surfaces. Do not run over
objects on the floor.
WARNING
Stay clear of all
moving parts.
• Perform all truck movements smoothly and at a speed
that will give you time to react in an emergency.
Moving parts can
cut or crush hands,
feet, arms or legs.

USE YOUR TRUCK SAFELY
• Keep your hands and feet away from all moving parts
such as masts, chains, forks or wheels. Make sure the
load backrest is in place, if your truck has that option.
• Never stand on or under the forks, or allow anyone else
to stand on or under them. The only way to lift people
is with an approved platform. Never ride on the truck
or let anyone else ride. There is no safe place to sit or
stand.
• Before you leave your truck:
• Lower the forks to the floor.
• Shut the truck off with the key or disconnect the
battery.

READING YOUR CAPACITY PLATE
Capacity may be reduced as lift height A increases.
Know the Hazards
For example: On the sample plate, 1360kg (3000 lb)
can be lifted to 3912mm (154 in). But above 3912 (154),
to 4267 (168), capacity is reduced from 1360 (3000) to
1135 (2500).
Capacity is reduced as load center B increases.
For example: On the sample plate, 1135kg (2500 lb)
can be lifted if the load center is 600 mm (24in).
But if the load center is increased to 660 (26), capacity is
reduced from 1135 (2500) to 998 (2200).

long, with a wire size of 16 AWG or heavier.
• Plug one end of the extension cord into the charging
socket on the console.
• Plug the other end of the cord into the AC outlet.
• Check the charging lights on the console.
WHAT THE LIGHTS MEAN
• A steady yellow light means there is power to the
charger. If the light does not come on, or goes out,
make sure the AC outlet is working and the extension
cord is OK.
• A flashing yellow light means something is wrong
with a battery or the charger. Notify your supervisor.
• A flashing green light means the charger is working.
• A steady green light means charging is finished.
DA N GE R
