WHERE DO I CLIP IN?

There are Six (6) approved anchor “clip in” points on the work platform.

DECALS AND WARNINGS

IT IS CALLED A “SCISSOR” LIFT FOR A REASON Use extreme caution when using anything that might hang off the work platform, or might get caught in the scissor mechanism.

ANOTHER SPECIAL FEATURE Lets you work above obstructions or in areas where pulling close to the wall is not advantageous

HOW DO I DRIVE THIS THING?

The Joystick has: A dead-man-grip

(lift won’t move unless you squeeze with your hand)

A rocker-switch

(that turns the wheels left or right)

Toggle Switch LEFT for UP/DOWN vertical operation on the Joystick Toggle Switch RIGHT for FORWARD/BACK driving operation on the Joystick Battery Gauge

LOWER (EMERGENCY) CONTROLS Lower Controls should be used during the following situations: • During Pre-Use Inspection of Lift Functions • By the Spotter ONLY After Given Permission to Operate a Function by the Operator • By the Spotter To Override the Upper Controls and Gain Access to the Operator in the Event of an Emergency

WHAT DOES THE SPOTTER DO? Spotters walk ahead and around of the operating lift and pay special attention to the lift route of travel to watch and warn the operator about: • Doorways • Blind corners • Low overhead clearances • People approaching from front or rear • Hazards on the floor like power cords or tools

SPOTTERS’ JOB AT DOORWAYS • Automatic doors must be propped or held open long enough to allow the lift to pass through the doorway • When entering and exiting the elevator, spotter must hold the “Door Open” button open until the lift is fully on or fully off the elevator car.
