Escaping hydraulic fluid under pressure, even a pinhole size leak, can penetrate body tissue, which could cause death or serious injury. If hydraulic oil is injected into your skin, a doctor familiar with this type of injury must treat it immediately.

Serious injury could result from hydraulic oil pressure or hot oil. DO NOT remove a hydraulic tank filler cap unless it is cool enough to touch with bare hands. Remove the hydraulic tank filler cap slowly to relieve pressure. Relieve all pressure in a hydraulic system before any caps, lines, fittings, or related items are disconnected or removed.

Operation Manual

Safety

It is possible for the forklift to move suddenly when the brakes are released, which could result in death, serious injury, or property damage. To prevent sudden movement of the forklift, place wheel chocks in front of and behind wheels before the brakes are released.

If the forklift is to be towed, make sure the released brake(s) can be reapplied or the tow forklift has the braking capacity to stop the forklift.

DO NOT use ether as a starting aid. Ether is flammable and can cause an explosion when starting the engine, which could result in death or serious injury. Follow the cold starting procedures and engine manufacturer’s specifications for using a starting aid.

Warning

Lead-acid batteries produce flammable and potentially explosive gases. To avoid death or serious injury when checking, testing, or charging batteries:

• DO NOT use smoking materials near batteries.

• Keep arcs, sparks, and open flames away from batteries.

• Provide ventilation for flammable vapors.

• Wear proper personal protective equipment, including safety glasses.

Fluid in electric storage batteries contains sulfuric acid, which is poison and could cause severe chemical burns.

Avoid all contact of fluid with eyes, skin, or clothing. Use protective gear when handling batteries. DO NOT tip a battery beyond a 45° angle in any direction. If contact does occur, follow these First Aid suggestions:

• External contact - Flush with water.

• Eyes - Flush with water (including under the eyelids) for at least 15 minutes and get medical attention immediately. Flushing must begin immediately to avoid permanent eye tissue damage.

• Internal contact - Drink large quantities of water or milk to dilute stomach contents.

Do not induce vomiting.

Get medical attention immediately.

Warning

Tires must have proper ballast. DO NOT replace foam-filled tires with pneumatic tires. Use of pneumatic tires will severely affect vehicle load capacity, which could result in death, serious injury, or property damage.

Warning

California Proposition 65

Battery posts, terminals, and related accessories contain lead and lead compounds, chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling these items.

Warning

Wear eye protection when starting a forklift with jump start cables. Improper jump start procedures could cause the battery to explode, which could result in death or serious injury.

• Never jump start a frozen battery, as it can explode. Let the battery thaw out before charging.

• NEVER jump start the forklift when travel select lever is in gear, which can cause the forklift to lurch forward or backward, and could result in death, serious injury, or property damage.

• To avoid injury or death when jump starting with another forklift, make sure the two (2) forklifts are not touching.

• DO NOT allow jump start cable ends to contact each other.

• Connect charged battery positive (+) to stalled battery positive (+).

• Connect charged battery negative (–) to stalled forklift ground. Make the connection to the stalled forklift ground last.

• Connect jump start cable to stalled forklift ground a safe distance from the battery to prevent sparks near the battery.

• Jump start only with a power source with the same voltage as the stalled forklift.

• Turn off all lights and accessories on the stalled forklift to prevent them from operating when the power source is connected.

• Electrolyte contains acid and could cause serious personal injury if it contacts the skin or eyes.

Seat Belt

Warning

Always check the condition of the seat belt and mounting hardware before operating the forklift. If the seat belt or mounting hardware is defective, it may not properly restrain the operator, which could result in death or serious injury.

• DO NOT operate the forklift until the seat belt or mounting hardware is replaced, if worn or damaged.

• The seat belt MUST be worn while operating the forklift. Failure to wear the seat belt could result in death or serious injury.

Before starting the engine, adjust the seat for position and comfort (refer to the Operator Seat section of this manual) and then adjust the seat belt as follows:

1.

Grasp the free end of the seat belt (located on the left side of the seat) and make sure the belt webbing is not twisted or entangled in any portion of the seat assembly.

2.

Pull the retractable seat belt across your lap. Position the seat belt as low on your body as possible.

3.

Insert the latch plate into the buckle (on the right side of the seat) until a “click” is heard.

4.

Make sure seat belt retracts snugly across your lap.

The forklift is equipped with a standard 2” wide retractable seat belt. A 3” wide retractable seat belt is available where required by local laws and regulations.

Rear View Mirrors

Two (2) adjustable rear view mirrors are provided to aid the operator’s rear vision.

Fork Ratings

Warning

DO NOT exceed forklift capacity of 12,000 pounds. The total rated capacity of the forks being used must equal or exceed forklift capacity. Forks can break causing loss of load and could result in death or serious injury.

All approved forks for this forklift are marked with a maximum load capacity rating (A). This rating is stamped on the left edge of the fork just below the fork pivot shaft. The rating listed is in

U.S. pounds and is based upon a 24 inch load center (B). This rating specifies the maximum load capacity that the individual fork can safely carry at a maximum load center of 24 inches.

Operation

Standard Carriage Operation

The standard carriage uses manually adjustable forks and can be tilted up or down by using the thumb stick on the control handle.

A

B

Figure 68. Attachment Tilt Control Switch.

(A) Attachment Tilt Down (B) Attachment Tilt Up

Figure 67. Fork Ratings

(A) Maximum Load Capacity Rating (B) 24 inch Load Center

Because forks are always used in multiples, the total rating of any combination of forks will be the sum of their rated capacity. Other than block forks, all forks should be used in matched pairs. Block forks should be used in matched sets.

The maximum load capacity for this forklift is 8,000 lbs. The matched pair or set of forks used on this forklift should have total load ratings which equal or exceed 8,000 lbs. When the load rating of the forklift differs from the load capacity of the forks, the lower value becomes the overall load capacity.

Fork Positioning Carriage Operation

Caution

Do not adjust forks when Fork Positioning Carriage is loaded. Adjusting forks when carriage is loaded may result in loss of load or carriage damage. Always use the Fork Positioning control handle to adjust the forks BEFORE loading the carriage.

Load Capacity Charts

Using Load Capacity Charts

The forklift includes two (2) indicators to assist the operator for accurately using the load capacity charts. These indicators are the Boom Extend Letters and the Boom Angle Indicator.

Boom extend letters are located on the left side of the boom and visible to the operator as the boom is extended. These letters indicate boom extension as it corresponds to the load capacity charts.

NOTE:

For example, when letter “A” first appears, the boom extension corresponds to the arc of line “A” throughout all the load capacity charts.

Warning

DO NOT exceed rated capacity. Any attempt to lift or carry loads in excess of those shown on the load capacity charts could cause forklift tip over, loss of load, or structural damage which could result in death, serious injury, or property damage.

All load ratings shown on load capacity charts are based on the forklift being on firm, level ground, the forks being evenly positioned on the carriage, the load being centered on the forks, properly sized tires properly inflated and/ or foam filled, and the forklift being in good operating condition.

Load capacity charts, located on the left side of the dash panel, are provided to assist the operator in determining how to safely operate the boom to pick up, carry, and set down a load with the forklift, including what angle, how high, and how far to extend the boom.

Operation

Frame Leveling

Warning

Use of the frame sway control with the boom raised above horizontal could cause tip over resulting in death or injury. Always use the frame sway control to level the forklift

BEFORE raising the boom above horizontal.

If the forklift cannot be leveled using the frame sway control, do not attempt to raise or place load. Reposition forklift or have the surface leveled.

The frame sway control handle has variable motions from the center that control frame sway (right and left).

Frame Sway Functions

Function Control Handle Action

FRAME SWAY RIGHT Move control handle RIGHT.

FRAME SWAY LEFT Move control handle LEFT.

Figure 89. Frame Level Indicator.

Warning

The reach forklift includes a Frame Sway

Override switch. Improper use of the Frame

Sway Override switch could cause death, serious injury, or property damage.

The frame sway feature becomes locked and will not operate when the boom is raised 40° or more. Applying service brake, parking brake, and placing travel select lever in NEUTRAL, then pressing the Frame Sway Override switch (the trigger on the Front Control handle) will override the lockout feature and allow frame sway.

Figure 88. Frame Sway Control Handle.

The frame sway control handle controls the frame sway (right and left) functions.

To lock the frame sway, place the travel select lever in

NEUTRAL or apply the service or parking brake.

NOTE: Maximum frame sway is 22° overall or 11° each direction, left and right.

A frame level indicator is mounted on the inside upper right corner of the operator’s cab. The frame level indicator allows the operator to view if the forklift has been positioned in a level condition. Always frame sway the forklift right or left until the indicator shows 0° (level).

Boom Emergency Lower Down Valve

Both of the lift and extend cylinders are equipped with a needle valve which allows the cylinder to retract without the direct assist of the machine’s hydraulic power. This feature is intended to be used only in the event of total loss of engine or hydraulic pump failure with an elevated boom.

In any event, the forklift should be secured until the situation has been properly evaluated. Secure the forklift and area by following the procedures below:

1.

Clear the area around the forklift of all personnel.

2.

Place the sift lever in NEUTRAL and engage the parking brake switch to the ON position.

3.

Section off a large area under the boom with tape to restrict any personnel from entering this potentially dangerous area.

4.

If the load is in a position where it can be removed safely, completely remove the load from the carriage and/or attachment. Otherwise leave the load in place.

5.

Remove boom access cover on back of boom.

6.

Locate needle valve on extend cylinder. Loosen nut on valve, then loosen valve with hex wrench.

7.

Fully retract boom with control handle in cab.

8.

When boom is fully retracted, tighten valve with hex wrench, then tighten nut to secure valve.

9.

Locate needle valves on lift cylinders. Loosen nut on valve, then loosen valve with hex wrench (lower right valve as shown in Figure 94). Repeat for both sides.

NOTE: DO NOT touch the top left valve (inset, Figure 94).

10.

Fully lower boom with control handle in cab.

11.

When boom is fully lowered, tighten valve with hex wrench, then tighten nut to secure valve (repeat for both sides).
