maintenance on the equipment while it is under a load.
If the moving parts of the equipment are obstructed, use cleaning solvent or another good degreaser to clean
the equipment. Remove any existing rust, with a penetrating lubricant.
This equipment will not operate safely without proper lubrication. Using the equipment without proper
lubrication will result in poor performance and damage to the equipment. Some parts in this equipment are not
self-lubricating inspect the equipment before use and lubricate when necessary. After cleaning, lubricate the
equipment using light penetrating oil, lubricating spray.
-Use a good lubricant on all moving parts.
-For light duty applications, use lubrication once a month.
-For heavy and constant application, weekly lubrication is recommended.
-NEVER USE SANDPAPER OR ABRASIVE MATERIAL ON THESE SURFACES!
With release valve closed, an upward stroke of the long ram handle draws oil from the reservoir tank into
the plunger cavity. Hydraulic pressure holds the valve closed, which keeps the oil in the plunger cavity. A
downward stroke of the long ram handle releases oil into the cylinder, which forces the ram out. This raises
the hydraulic ram. When the ram reaches maximum extension, oil is bypassed back into the reservoir to
prevent an over extended ram stroke and possible damage to the long ram. Opening the release valve allows
oil to flow back into reservoir. This releases hydraulic pressure on the ram, which results in lowering the
Storing the Crane
1. Lower the Lifting Arm.
2. Place the handle in the upright position.
3. Store in a dry location, recommended indoors.
Note: If the crane is stored outdoors, be sure to lubricate all parts before and after use to ensure the crane
stays in good working condition.
