Tip-over Hazards
DO NOT exceed the maximum platform capacity (See Platform Capacity & Material Loading
on page 35). The weight of options and accessories will reduce the rated platform capacity and
must be factored into the total platform load. Refer to the decals on the options.
DO NOT elevate the platform when the machine is on a surface that is soft and / or on a slope.
STOP if the alarm sounds and the red light illuminates when the platform is raised. Use
extreme caution to lower the platform.
Driving: DO NOT drive the machine on a slope that exceeds the maximum uphill or downhill
slope rating. Slope rating applies to machines in the stowed position.
DO NOT OVERLOAD
Driving in stowed position: use extreme care and reduce speed when driving across uneven
terrain, debris, unstable or slippery surfaces, and near holes or drop-offs.

maintenance items specified in this manual.
IMPORTANT— Scheduled maintenance inspection checklists are included in this manual for use only by qualified service
technicians. Only qualified service technicians may perform repairs to the machine. After repairs are completed,
the operator must perform a Pre-Start Inspection before proceeding to the Functions Test.
Hydraulic fluid under pressure can penetrate and burn skin, damage eyes, and may cause serious
injury, blindness, and death. Repair leaks immediately. Fluid leaks under pressure may not always be
visible. Check for pin hole leaks with a piece of cardboard, not your hand.
NEVER perform work or inspection on the machine with the platform elevated without first blocking
the boom assembly with the Maintenance Chock.
Perform scheduled maintenance at recommended intervals. Failure to perform scheduled
maintenance at recommended intervals may result in a defective or malfunctioning machine and may
result in injury or death of the operator. Keep maintenance records current and accurate.
Immediately report any damage, defect, unauthorized modification or malfunction to your supervisor.
Any defect must be repaired prior to continued use. DO NOT use a damaged, modified or
malfunctioning machine.
Never leave hydraulic components or hoses open. Plug all hoses and fitting immediately after
disassembly to protect the system from outside contamination (including rain).
Never open a hydraulic system when there are contaminants in the air.
Always clean the surrounding area before opening hydraulic systems.
Use only recommended lubricants. Improper lubricants or incompatible lubricants may cause as much
damage as no lubrication.
Watch for makeshift “fixes” which can jeopardize safety as well as lead to more costly repair.
Inspection and maintenance should be performed by qualified personnel familiar with the equipment.

Machine Inspections and Maintenance
Using The Maintenance Chock
NEVER perform work or inspection on the machine with the platform elevated without first blocking
the boom assembly with the Maintenance Chock.
The Maintenance Chock is heavy. Hold it securely during the installation and removal process.
The Maintenance Chock may rotate around the cylinder rod during machine movement and may fall if
it is not held securely in place during installation and removal.
When performing inspection, maintenance, or repair on a machine elevated out of the stowed
condition any load must be removed from the platform; the safety chock shall be installed during any
of the aforementioned activities.
The Maintenance Chock fits over the lift cylinder rod, between the rod end and the end of the
cylinder barrel. A tab on the Maintenance Chock fits over a stud on the cylinder barrel and
prevents the chock from rotating.
Installation
• Remove the Maintenance Chock from the storage location on the front outrigger
brace tube (See Workplace Inspection on page 14).
• Using the Boom Lift/Lower function, raise the platform to approximately 16 feet (5
m).
• Place the Maintenance Chock over the cylinder rod above the cylinder barrel. Align
the tab with the stud on the cylinder barrel to keep it properly positioned while
lowering the platform.
• Using the Boom Lift/Lower function, slowly lower the boom until the Maintenance
Chock is secure between the cylinder rod end and the cylinder barrel.
Removal
• Using the Boom Lift/Lower function, raise the platform to approximately 16 feet
(5 m) until the Maintenance Chock moves freely.
• Remove the Maintenance Chock from the cylinder rod.
• Store the Maintenance Chock in the storage location on the front outrigger brace
tube. Secure it with the provided fasteners.
