FRONT BUCKET CROWD CYLINDER STRUT INSTALLATION
You could be killed or injured if the bucket drops while you are working near it. Install the support
strut as instructed below before traveling on the highway. Failure to follow this warning may result
in injury or death to personnel.
Keep people away from the machine while you fit or remove the strut. You or others could be killed
or injured if the bucket is operated while you are close to it.
You may have to climb onto the machine to fit or remove the strut. Take care, especially if the
