Water Box Safety Crushing / Amputation Hazard April 17, 2009
Safety Reminder Water Box Safety Crushing / Amputation Hazard
Do not remove the water box covers or grates when the machine is stroking.
If you must remove the water box cover (to add water, for example), and there is not a bolt-down grate over the water box, then stop the pump, take the transmission out of gear, and lock the cab so the pump cannot be restarted until you are finished and the covers are back in place.
If a bolt-down grate is installed, you may simply stop the pump from stroking before removing the water box covers. Replace the covers before restarting the pump.
