BACKHOE CONTROLS CONTINUED
The stabilizers must be down when you use the backhoe or the machine may become unstable.
Each stabilizer has its own control lever and can be operated independently. Failure to follow this
warning may result in injury to personnel.
You or others can be killed or seriously injured if you carry out unfamiliar operations without first
practicing them. Keep all bystanders clear of the operating area. Operating the wrong control lever
or moving controls violently may result in injury or death to personnel.
Before raising the boom, check that it is clear overhead. Failure to follow this warning may result in
injury or death to personnel.
To raise the boom (Figure 71, Item 1), pull the left-hand lever (Figure 71, Item 2) towards the front of the machine.
