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.

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.

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.

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.

FrOM inStaBiLity:

Use a level to verify that the Scaffold frame is plumb and level in all directions. “Eyeballing” the straightness of the Scaffold is not accurate enough.

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.

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.
