HOOD AND NOSECONE
The hood on the HMEE-I is sectional, comprising a nosecone, the main hood section, and a fixed plenum panel. The design
allows for greater access and ease of maintenance.
The engine has rotating parts. Do not open the engine compartment hood while the engine is
running. Do not use the machine with the engine compartment hood open. Do not place hands in
the engine compartment with the engine running. Failure to follow this warning may result in
injury or death to personnel.
