Machine Lifting and Tie Downs
Improper lifting can allow the load to shift and
cause injury or damage.
One lifting eye (1) is located on either side of the
blade. Use these lifting eyes to lift the blade. The blade
should be fully raised when the machine is lifted.
One lifting eye (2) is located on either side of the C-
frame. One lifting eye (3) is located on either side of
the winch. Use lifting eyes (1) and (3) to lift the
machine. The blade should be fully raised when the
machine is lifted.
Do not use lifting eyes (2) for single-point lifting when
the ROPS (top half of cab shell) is installed. The
rigging will interfere with the top of the cab. Use lifting
eyes (1) for single-point lifting with the ROPS installed.
Refer to lifting information plate (4) for lifting and
slinging information and the center of gravity location.
