. Block up the scraper bowl and apron before
performing any work on the cutting edges of the scraper.
. Keep the operators cab clear of debris, grease,
oil, and mud which can cause the operator to slip or fall.
. Never kick the scraper out of gear when going
downhill. The increased speed will make control of the
scraper very difficult. Keep the scraper in gear at all
times and use the cutting edge to control the speed
When the brakes fail to hold the load, lower and drag
the scraper bowl.
l When securing the scraper, ensure the apron is
closed and the bowl on the ground.
l Do NOT spread when turning.
l When working on slopes, always turn uphill.
. Do NOT drop the bowl suddenly; ease the cutting
edge onto the ground.
. Load and spread when going downgrade,
. When constructing a fill, keep the outside edge
high and the center low to prevent the scraper from
sliding over the edge.
l When the scraper begins to fall off the fill, steer
downhill, drop the bowl, and rapidly accelerate to
maximum rpm. Do NOT attempt to turn the scraper
back up the slope. Do NOT stop the forward motion of
the scraper when there is any danger of the unit tipping
. Wear any required personal protective
equipment, such as hard hats and steel toe safety shoes.
