Operating Instructions

Read ENTIRE IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION section at beginning of this manual including all text under subheadings therein before set up or use of this product.

Note: Once Assembly is complete, tighten ALL Bolts before initial operation.

Lifting and Lowering

3/8 Ton Load

Figure K

1. Locate the hole on the Boom with a weight limit higher than the weight you will be lifting.

For example: Locate the 1/2 TON hole on the Boom for a load that is under 1/2 Ton. See Figure K.

Boom Pin

Figure L

R-Pin

2. Adjust the Boom Extension so the hole farthest from the hook-end aligns with the chosen hole on the Boom.

Secure into place by inserting the Boom Bolt through all aligned holes and securing in place with the Washer and Nut. See Figure L above.

WARNING! Keep clear of the object that is being lifted by the Engine Crane.

Be aware of the possibility of a load slipping off the Hook and Chain.

An item that falls from the Crane can cause serious injury.

3. Move the Crane so that the Hook and Chain are directly above the item to be lifted.

4. Securely attach the Hook and Chain to the item.

5. To raise the Boom, turn the Ram’s release valve fully clockwise (right). Insert the Handle into the

Ram and pump (up and down) repeatedly until the item has been lifted to the desired height.

WARNING!

Fully tighten the release valve or else the Ram may lower or may not be able to reach the full height.

6. To lower the Crane,

SLOWLY

turn the Ram’s release valve counterclockwise (left).

Folding the Frame

WARNING! Do not fold the Crane while loaded.

1. Lower the Crane all the way.

2. Remove R-Pins from the front Lock Pins.

Remove the front Lock Pins. Leave rear Lock Pins in.

3. Raise the Legs until they rest against the Handle.

4. Insert a front Lock Pin into the middle hole of the Base, for each Leg, and reinsert R-Pins.

Bleeding Instructions

IMPORTANT!

Before first use, check for proper hydraulic oil level and thoroughly test the equipment.

If it does not work properly, bleed excess air from its hydraulic system as follows:

1. Open Release Valve and lower Ram completely.

2. Remove Oil Plug and fill with hydraulic oil (sold separately) to full level.

3. Apply downward pressure to the Boom and

Pump the Ram Handle quickly several times.

4. Check the Oil Fill Hole and, if necessary, top off the Oil Fill Hole with hydraulic oil.

5. Replace the Oil Plug and close the Release Valve.

6. Test the equipment several times for proper operation before attempting to lift a load. If, after bleeding, the equipment still does not appear to be working properly, do not use the equipment until it has been repaired by a qualified service technician.

Maintenance and Servicing

Procedures not specifically explained in this manual must be performed only by a qualified technician.

TO PREVENT SERIOUS INJURY FROM ACCIDENTAL OPERATION:

Do not use damaged equipment. If abnormal noise or vibration occurs, have the problem corrected before further use.

Cleaning, Maintenance, and Lubrication

1.

BEFORE EACH USE,

inspect the general condition of the tool. Check for:

• loose hardware,

• misalignment or binding of moving parts,

• cracked or broken parts, and

• any other condition that may affect its safe operation.

2.

Before each use, thoroughly test the Ram for proper operation prior to its actual use.

If the Ram appears to not be working properly, follow Bleeding instructions on page 7.

3.

Change the hydraulic oil at least once every three years:

a. With the Ram fully lowered, remove the

Oil Filler Plug on the side of the Housing.

b. Tip the Ram to allow the old hydraulic oil to drain out of the Housing completely, and dispose of the old hydraulic oil in accordance with local regulations.

c. With the Ram upright, completely fill the Housing with a high quality hydraulic oil (not included) until the oil just begins to run out of the Oil Fill Hole.

d. Open the valve Release Screw and pump the Handle to bleed air from the system. e. Reinstall the Oil Filler Plug.

4. Wipe dry with a clean cloth. Then, store the

Ram in a safe, dry location out of reach of children and other non-authorized people

.

Troubleshooting

TO PREVENT SERIOUS INJURY: Use caution when troubleshooting malfunctioning ram. Stay clear of supported load. Completely resolve all problems before use.

If solutions presented in Troubleshooting guide do not solve the problem, have a qualified technician inspect and repair ram before use.

After ram is repaired: Test it carefully without a load by raising and lowering it fully, checking for proper operation, BEFORE RETURNING RAM TO OPERATION.

DO NOT USE A DAMAGED OR

MALFUNCTIONING RAM!

Ram will not lift at its weight capacity

POSSIBLE SYMPTOMS

Hook lowers under load

Pump stroke feels spongy

Hook will not lift all the way

Handle moves up when

Ram is under load

Oil leaking from

Filler

Plug

PROBABLE SOLUTION
