Regarding IBM provided VENDOR LIFT TOOL:
v Operation of LIFT TOOL by authorized personnel only.
v LIFT TOOL intended for use to assist, lift, install, remove units (load) up into rack elevations. It is
not to be used loaded transporting over major ramps nor as a replacement for such designated tools
like pallet jacks, walkies, fork trucks and such related relocation practices. When this is not
practicable, specially trained persons or services must be used (for instance, riggers or movers).
v Read and completely understand the contents of LIFT TOOL operator's manual before using.
Failure to read, understand, obey safety rules, and follow instructions may result in property
damage and/or personal injury. If there are questions, contact the vendor's service and support.
Local paper manual must remain with machine in provided storage sleeve area. Latest revision
manual available on vendor's web site.
v Test verify stabilizer brake function before each use. Do not over-force moving or rolling the LIFT
TOOL with stabilizer brake engaged.
v Do not move LIFT TOOL while platform is raised, except for minor positioning.
v Do not exceed rated load capacity. See LOAD CAPACITY CHART regarding maximum loads at
center versus edge of extended platform.
v Only raise load if properly centered on platform. Do not place more than 200 lb (91 kg) on edge of
sliding platform shelf also considering the load's center of mass/gravity (CoG).
v Do not corner load the platform tilt riser accessory option. Secure platform riser tilt option to main
shelf in all four (4x) locations with provided hardware only, prior to use. Load objects are designed
to slide on/off smooth platforms without appreciable force, so take care not to push or lean. Keep
riser tilt option flat at all times except for final minor adjustment when needed.
v Do not stand under overhanging load.
v Do not use on uneven surface, incline or decline (major ramps).
v Do not stack loads.
v Do not operate while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
v Do not support ladder against LIFT TOOL.
v Tipping hazard. Do not push or lean against load with raised platform.
v Do not use as a personnel lifting platform or step. No riders.
v Do not stand on any part of lift. Not a step.
v Do not climb on mast.
v Do not operate a damaged or malfunctioning LIFT TOOL machine.
v Crush and pinch point hazard below platform. Only lower load in areas clear of personnel and
obstructions. Keep hands and feet clear during operation.
v No Forks. Never lift or move bare LIFT TOOL MACHINE with pallet truck, jack or fork lift.
v Mast extends higher than platform. Be aware of ceiling height, cable trays, sprinklers, lights, and
other overhead objects.
v Do not leave LIFT TOOL machine unattended with an elevated load.
v Watch and keep hands, fingers, and clothing clear when equipment is in motion.
v Turn Winch with hand power only. If winch handle cannot be cranked easily with one hand, it is
probably over-loaded. Do not continue to turn winch past top or bottom of platform travel.
Excessive unwinding will detach handle and damage cable. Always hold handle when lowering,
unwinding. Always assure self that winch is holding load before releasing winch handle.
v A winch accident could cause serious injury. Not for moving humans. Make certain clicking sound
is heard as the equipment is being raised. Be sure winch is locked in position before releasing
handle. Read instruction page before operating this winch. Never allow winch to unwind freely.
Freewheeling will cause uneven cable wrapping around winch drum, damage cable, and may cause
serious injury. (C048)
