This instruction manual is meant to serve as a guide only. Specifications and references are subject to change without prior notice.
1. Study and understand all operating instructions before operating crane.
2. Do not exceed the rated capacity of the crane. Position 1 (.5 ton), position 2 (1 ton), position 3 (1.5 tons), position 4 (2 tons).
3. Make sure that the load is not allowed to drop suddenly or swing during transporting.
4. Make sure that boom is fully loaded (in its high position) before adding oil to unit reservoir.
5. This shop crane is designed for use only on hard, level surfaces capable of sustaining the load. Use on other than hard level surfaces can result in shop crane instability and possible loss of load.
6. Slowly lower boom and load to the lowest possible position before transporting load.
7. Assemble crane according to the assembly instructions. Make sure all bolts and nuts are tight before placing crane into operation.
8. Do not use crane for any other purpose than for which it was designed and intended.
9. Crane legs must always extend beyond the boom.
10. Boom extension hardware must be secure before attempting to lift any load.
11. Never place any part of the body under the load or crane while in use.
12. Never use the crane as the only means of support. Always move the load to a stable platform or work surface before attempting any work.
13. Keep others away from the area while the crane is in operation.
14. Boom must be in fully lowered position before raising legs. Legs must never be raised when crane is carrying load. Legs must be locked in place.
15. Before attempting to raise load, make sure it is securely fastened and safety latches are secure.
16. Do not operate crane with twisted or kinked chain.
17. Do not remove labels from crane.
18. Never use crane for lifting people or loads over people.
19. Do not remove ram and use separately for any purpose.

Note: Refer to parts diagram for index numbers found in parenthesis (#): 1. Install two large wheels (#1) to the front legs (#11) and two large wheels (#1) to the frame base (#4) using four hex. bolts (#3) and hex. nuts (#2) for each wheel. Install two smaller wheels (#10) to the frame base (#4) using four countersunk head screws (#9) and hex. nuts (#2).
2. Attach front legs (#11) to the frame base (#4) using all four hitch pins (#7) and hitch pin clips (#8). On each leg, insert 1 pin through frame base and front leg at rear hole. The hitch pin serves as a pivot pin and remains in the hole permanently. Insert a second hitch pin in the most forward hole through the frame base and front leg. This locks the legs in the down position. 3. Insert hitch pin clips (#8) through hitch pins (#7) to secure in place.
4. Attach the main support post (#18) to the frame base (#4) using two M14 x 95 hex. bolts (#6) and hex. nuts (#5).
5. Attach both support braces (#16) to the top of the main support post (#18) using a M14 x 95 hex. bolt (#6) and hex. nut (#5).
6. Connect the support braces (#16) to the frame base (#4) using two M14 x 95 hex. bolts (#6) and hex. nuts (#5).
7. Connect the bottom of the hydraulic ram assembly (#15) to the main support post (#18) using a M16 x 85 hex. bolt (#13) and hex. nut (#17).
8. Connect the boom (#20) to the main support post (#18) using a M16 x 110 hex. bolt (#19) and hex. nut (#17).
9. While another person supports the boom (#20) up attach the top of the hydraulic ram assembly (#15) to the boom with a M16 x 85 hex. bolt (#13) and hex. nut (#17).
10. Slide the boom extension (#21) into the boom (#20) with the slot for the hook and chain assembly (#23) facing down. Secure boom extension with M14 x 85 hex. bolt (#27) and hex. nut (#5).
11. Install chain and hook assembly (#23) using a M14 x 75 hex. bolt (#22) and hex. nut (#5).
12. Install handle assembly (#24) to the rear of the support post (#18) using four hex. bolts (#25).
13. Install all five end caps (#26) using a rubber mallet.
14. Make sure all hardware is tight.
1. Load to be lifted must be securely attached with a sling or chain of adequate size and strength. Before lifting the load, be sure the load cannot twist or fall. 2. Move crane into position. Legs must be in down position and locked into place. Never use crane with the legs in the upright position.
3. Close hydraulic valve at the base of ram by turning clockwise until tight.
4. Place sling or chain in center of hook. 5. Slowly raise the load to desired height by inserting ram handle and pumping handle. 6. Move load to desired location by rolling crane assembly. Use caution so that load does not swing or rotate.
7. Slowly lower load to desired location by inserting ram handle onto valve at base of the ram and slowly turning counterclockwise. Do not lower too quickly.
Use only a good grade hydraulic jack oil. Avoid mixing different types of fluid and NEVER use brake fluid, turbine oil, transmission fluid, motor oil or glycerin. Improper fluid can cause failure of the jack and the potential for sudden and immediate loss of load.
1. With jack fully lowered and handle sleeve fully depressed, remove oil filler plug.
2. Fill with hydraulic oil until just below the rim of the oil filler plug hole. Reinstall the oil filler plug.
For best performance and longest life, replace the complete hydraulic oil supply at least once per year.
1. With jack fully lowered and handle sleeve fully depressed, remove jack from crane. With jack in it’s upright, level position, remove oil filler plug.
2. Lay the jack on its side and drain the oil into a suitable container.
Dispose of hydraulic oil in accordance with local regulations.
3. Set jack in its upright, level position.
4. Fill with hydraulic oil until just below the rim of the oil filler plug hole. Reinstall the oil filler plug.
A periodic coating of light lubricating oil to pivot points will help to prevent rust and assure that casters and other parts move freely.
Periodically check the pump ram for signs of rust or corrosion. Clean as needed and wipe with an oily cloth.
