BEFORE OPERATION
OPERATION
1.) Ensure that forks of forklift are completely through boom
fork pockets, and that the boom is against the fork uprights
near the carriage of the forklift.
1.) Wrap lifting chain, nylon strap, around the load you
desire to move. Secure load to boom utilizing one or both
front and rear hooks of the hook bar.
2.) Secure boom to forklift by wrapping chain around the
carriage of the forklift. Pull the chain as tight as possible
and lock chain to carriage utilizing the locking hook on
either end of the chain.
2.) Lift the load slowly. If the forklift begins to rise, the load is
too heavy for the forklift. Unattached the bundle and move
the center of the load closer to the forklift. This may require
pushing the telescoping pipe back into the larger pipe and
locking into position. Make sure all personnel are clear
before attempting to lift load. If bundle does not raise
evenly, re-center the lifting chains so the load remains
parallel with the surface.
3.) To adjust height using the orbital function: lower boom
to the ground with the forktruck tines engaged and safety
chain secured to mast. While stabilizing the boom pivot
handle, remove pivot locking pin and position boom to
desired height. (Note: this operation can be performed by
one person, but it is strongly recommended to have two
persons position the boom.)
3.) Raise the load to transporting height, keeping load as close
to the ground as possible.
4.) Extend the telescopic pipe to the desired distance and
secure with locking pin. Ensure the pin is locking the
telescopic pipe is in place and it cannot move
horizontally.
4.) Transport the load to the desired location. Move slowly
and avoid all bumps and inclines/declines. Ensure all
personnel are clear of the area. If at any time the forklift
begins to rise, STOP, and adjust the center of the load as
described in paragraph number 2.
5.) Review boom capacity to ensure the boom can lift the
desired load at the desired distance safely.
5.) Raise/Lower the load into the desired position. Lower
load slowly into place.
6.) Review forklift owners manual for forklift capacity at the
load center of gravity distance and raised height to ensure
the forklift can lift the desired load safely.
NEVER OVERLOAD THE FORKLIFT!
6.) Un-attach load lifting chains from boom. Push telescoping
boom back into larger pipe and secure with locking pin.
8.) Do not use the boom if it has been damaged.
9.) Tilt mast back toward driver. NEVER tilt mast top forward
as boom may tend to slip off forks.
