Hot surfaces could result in severe burns or fire.
(000108)
WARNING: Personal injury. Do not insert any
object through the air cooling slots. Generator
can start at any time and could result in death,
serious injury, and unit damage. (000142a)
WARNING: Risk of injury. Do not operate or ser-
vice this machine if not fully alert. Fatigue can
impair the ability to service this equipment and
could result in death or serious injury. (000215)
WARNING: Injury and equipment damage. Do
not use generator as a step. Doing so could
result in falling, damaged parts, unsafe equip-
ment operation and could result in death or
serious injury. (000216)
WARNING: Equipment damage. Do not attempt
to start or operate a unit in need of repair or
scheduled maintenance. Doing so could result
in serious injury, death or equipment failure or
damage. (000291)
• For safety reasons, it is recommended that the mainte-
nance of this equipment be performed by a Service
Dealer. Inspect the generator regularly, and contact the
nearest Service Dealer for parts needing repair or
replacement.

Exhaust and Location Hazards

DANGER: Asphyxiation. Running engines pro-
duce carbon monoxide, a colorless, odorless,
poisonous gas. Carbon monoxide, if not
avoided, will result in death or serious injury.
(000103)
DANGER: Asphyxiation. The exhaust system
must be properly maintained. Do not alter or
modify the exhaust system as to render it
unsafe or make it noncompliant with local
codes and/or standards. Failure to do so will
result in death or serious injury. (000179b)
WARNING: Equipment and property damage. Do
not alter construction of, installation, or block
ventilation for generator. Failure to do so could
result in unsafe operation or damage to the
generator. (000146)
WARNING: Asphyxiation. Always use a battery
operated carbon monoxide alarm indoors and
installed according to the manufacturer's
instructions. Failure to do so could result in
death or serious injury. (000178a)
• If you start to feel sick, dizzy, or weak after the generator
has been running, move to fresh air IMMEDIATELY. See a
doctor, as you could have carbon monoxide poisoning.
• NEVER run a generator indoors or in a partly enclosed
area such as garages.
• ONLY use outdoors and far away from windows, doors,
vents, crawl spaces and in an area where adequate ven-
2
tilation is available and will not accumulate deadly
exhaust gas.
• Using a fan or opening a door will not provide sufficient
ventilation.
• Point muffler exhaust away from people and occupied
buildings.

Electrical Hazards

DANGER: Electrocution. Contact with bare wires,
terminals, and connections while generator is
running will result in death or serious injury.
(000144)
DANGER: Electrocution. Water contact with a
power source, if not avoided, will result in
death or serious injury. (000104)
DANGER: Electrocution. In the event of electrical
accident, immediately shut power OFF. Use
non-conductive implements to free victim from
live conductor. Apply first aid and get medical
help. Failure to do so will result in death or seri-
ous injury. (000145)
• The National Electric Code (NEC) requires the frame and
external electrically conductive parts of the generator be
properly connected to an approved earth ground. Local
electrical codes may also require proper grounding of
the generator. Consult with a local electrician for
grounding requirements in the area.
• Use a ground fault circuit interrupter in any damp or
highly conductive area (such as metal decking or steel
work).
• Once generator has been started outside, connect elec-
trical loads to extension cord(s) inside.

Fire Hazards

DANGER: Explosion and Fire. Fuel and vapors
are extremely flammable and explosive. Add
fuel in a well ventilated area. Keep fire and
spark away. Failure to do so will result in death
or serious injury. (000105)
DANGER: Explosion and Fire. Do not overfill fuel
tank. Fill to 1/2 inch from top of tank to allow
for fuel expansion. Overfilling may cause fuel
to spill onto engine causing fire or explosion
which will result in death or serious injury.
(000166b)
WARNING: Personal injury. Do not insert any
object through the air cooling slots. Generator
can start at any time and could result in death,
serious injury, and unit damage. (000142a)
WARNING: Fire risk. Fuel and vapors are
extremely flammable. Do not operate indoors.
Doing so could result in death, serious injury, or
property or equipment damage. (000281)
WARNING: Explosion and fire risk. Do not smoke
near unit. Keep fire and spark away. Failure to
do so could result in death, serious injury, or
property or equipment damage. (000282)
WARNING: Explosion and Fire. Do not smoke
while refueling unit. Failure to do so could
result in death, serious injury, or property or
equipment damage. (000284a)
