Operating Instructions
Read the ENTIRE IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION section at the beginning of this
manual including all text under subheadings therein before set up or use of this product.
Safety
TO PREVENT SERIOUS INJURY AND DEATH:
Put on safety harness (not included) before climbing onto Scaffold.
Do not use the End Frames or any other part of this Scaffold as a means of climbing onto the Scaffold.
TO PREVENT SERIOUS INJURY:
Inspect Scaffolds thoroughly before use each day. Check all components and Locking Pins
before each use.
Do not use front-end loaders, forklifts or similar pieces of equipment to support Scaffold platforms.
ASSEMBLY
General Operating Instructions
WARNING! TO PREVENT SERIOUS INJURY,
DO NOT PERMIT PEOPLE OR EQUIPMENT ON
THE SCAFFOLD WHILE IT IS BEING MOVED.
1. Wheel the Scaffold to the area where it will
be used, grasping and pushing the scaffold
at points no higher than 5 feet off the floor
to help prevent tipping. The surface where
this Scaffold is placed must be capable
of supporting the loaded Scaffold without
settling or displacement. Use this Scaffold
on concrete or asphalt concrete only.
Operation
2. Lock the Swivel Casters (4) by depressing
the Lock Mechanism attached to each Wheel.
Pressing down on the end marked ON locks
the Swivel Caster. Pressing down on the
end marked OFF unlocks the Caster.
WARNING! ALL CASTERS MUST BE
LOCKED BEFORE USE TO PREVENT
MOVEMENT AND SERIOUS INJURY.
WARNING! TO PREVENT SERIOUS INJURY
FROM INSTABILITY:
Use a level to verify that the Scaffold frame is
plumb and level in all directions.
the
straightness of the Scaffold is not accurate enough.
MAINTENANCE
3. A ladder should normally be used to climb onto the
Scaffold. The ladder must be positioned so as
not to tip the Scaffold when weight is placed
against it. Any “attachable” ladders used must
be specifically designed for this type of Scaffold.
They must clamp securely in place to the Scaffold
and any ladder used must be securely held in
place during use to prevent movement. Any
ladder (normal or stairway type) must meet
OSHA requirements for use with scaffolds.
Page 6
4. If the Scaffold will be accessed directly (such as
from an opening in the side of a building), it cannot
be more than 14 inches horizontally nor more
than 24 inches vertically from the other surface.
5. Each worker on a scaffold more than 10 feet
above a lower level MUST be protected from
falling to that lower level. Fall protection
consists of either personal fall arrest systems, or
guardrail systems meeting OSHA requirements.
6. For most activities, there must be no more than
a 14 inch gap between the Scaffold platform and
the structure being worked on. One exception
is when using for lathing and plastering.
For this, a gap of 18 inches is permitted.
7. If toe-boards, guardrails, or canopies are used to
prevent a “falling object” hazard to passers‑by,
then the area below the Scaffold must be
barricaded and the danger clearly stated.
8. All plug-in electric tools used on the Scaffold
must be protected by a GFCI outlet or plug.
9. When finished using the Scaffold, wipe down the
Wood Platform (3) and all metal supports. Then
store the tool indoors out of children’s reach.
Note: Be aware of any grease or other oily substance
spilled on Wood Platform and wipe up immediately.
For technical questions, please call 1-888-866-5797.
Item 63050
Attaching a Second Stage
Safety
TO PREVENT SERIOUS INJURY:
Before assembling the second stage, the lower stage must be completely assembled even if it is
not being used. The lower stage provides needed structural support for the upper stage.
Observe all safety rules for boarding, working on, and getting off the first stage when assembling.
Assemble the upper stage one piece at a time to help prevent clutter and falling parts.
Assemble each major component completely before moving on to the next one.
At least three workers are required to assemble the second stage safely.
ASSEMBLY
1. Attach one second stage End Frame (1) by
inserting the bottoms of its legs over the tops of
one first stage End Frame’s legs and securing
with Locking Pins (5) and Pin Springs (6).
Repeat procedure for the other End Frame.
Attach Second Stage
End Frames to Stable
Structure Here
2. Attach the Side Rails (2) one at a time to
each side of the second stage End Rails at
the desired height using Height Adjustment
Pins (7), Locking Pins and Pin Springs.
Operation
3. Secure the Scaffold to a stable structure, using
guys, ties and/or braces. They must be secured
at the end of the third horizontal beam on the
second Scaffold (the eighth beam from the
ground) as noted in Figure E.
The components and the attachment
methods used at this point must be rated
to at least four times the capacity of the
Scaffold. If you have any doubt about your
ability to properly do this, have a qualified
technician secure the Scaffold instead.
5. Use the two Platform Hold Downs (8) and four
Bolts (9), Nuts (10) and Washers (11) to secure the
Wood Platform in place.
