MOVING PARTS CAN CAUSE SEVERE PERSONAL
INJURY OR DEATH

Safety Precautions
Before operating the generator set, read the Owner’s Manual and
become familiar with it and your equipment. Safe and efficient
operation can be achieved only if the equipment is properly operated
and maintained. Many accidents are caused by failure to follow
fundamental rules and precautions.






The following symbols found throughout this manual, alert you to
potentially dangerous conditions to the operator, service personnel or
the equipment.

This symbol warns of immediate
! DANGER hazards, which if not avoided, will result
in severe personal injury or death.




This symbol refers to a hazard or
! WARNING
unsafe practice, which if not avoided,
could result in severe personal injury or
death.

CAUTION

ELECTRICAL SHOCK CAN CAUSE SEVERE PERSONAL
INJURY OR DEATH

This symbol refers to a hazard or
unsafe practice, which if not avoided,
might result in minor or moderate injury
or product or property damage.



The engine exhaust from this product
! DANGER contains chemicals known to the state
of California to cause Cancer, Birth
Defects or other reproductive harm.




Fuels, electrical equipment batteries, exhaust gases and moving parts
present potential hazards that could result in severe personal injury.
Take care in following these recommended procedures.



FUELS AND FUMES ARE FLAMMABLE:
Fire, explosion and severe personal injury can result from improper
practices. When transporting generator set, always close the fuel shut
off valve located beneath the bottom of the fuel tank.







DO NOT fill fuel tanks with the engine running. Fuel contact
with the engine or exhaust is a potential fire hazard. Let the
engine cool down before removing gas cap.
DO NOT SMOKE OR ALLOW AN OPEN FLAME near the
generator set or fuel tank.
DO NOT store or transport the generator wet without first
removing the fuel from the tank.
DO NOT SMOKE while servicing batteries. Lead acid
batteries emit a highly explosive hydrogen gas that can be
ignited by electrical arcing or by smoking.
DO NOT mix lubricating oil with gasoline.
When refueling always wait until the unit has cooled down
before opening/removing the fuel cap.







Disconnect starting battery before removing protective
shields or touching electrical equipment.
Use rubber
insulated mats placed on dry wood platforms over floors that
are metal or concrete when around electrical equipment. Do
not wear wet damp clothing (particularly wet shoes) or allow
skin surfaces to be damp when handling electrical
equipment.
Use extreme caution when working on electrical
components. High voltages can cause injury or death. DO
NOT tamper with interlocks.
Follow all applicable state and local electrical codes. Have
all electrical installations performed by a qualified licensed
electrician. Tag open switches to avoid accidental closure.
DO NOT CONNECT GENERATOR SET DIRECTLY TO
ANY BUILDING ELECTRICAL SYSTEM.
Hazardous
voltages can flow from the generator set into the utility line.
This creates a potential for electrocution or property
damage. Connect only through an approved device and
after building main switch is open. The National Electrical
Code and Canadian Standards Association require an
approved switch device between the generator set and the
utility power. Consult a licensed electrician in regard to
emergency power use.
DO NOT use the generator set in rain, snow, sleet or wet
ground conditions.

GENERAL SAFETY PRECAUTIONS




EXHAUST GASES ARE DEADLY


Before performing any maintenance on the generator set,
disconnect the spark plug wire (and the starting battery
negative cable on electric start models) to prevent accidental
starting.
Keep hands away from moving parts
Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry while servicing any
part of the generator set. Loose clothing and jewelry can
become caught in moving parts. Jewelry can short out
electrical contacts and cause shock or burning.
Make sure that fasteners on the generator set are secure.
Tighten supports and clamps, keep guards in position over
fans, drive belts and heat shields, etc.
If adjustment must be made while the generator set is
running, use extreme caution around hot manifolds and
moving parts, etc.

Engine exhaust contains CARBON MONOXIDE, a
dangerous, invisible gas that you cannot smell that is
potentially lethal. Avoid carbon monoxide inhalation by
operating the generator set outdoors where exhaust gases
can be discharged directly into the open air. Use a batterypowered carbon monoxide detector when running generator.
Do not operate the generator set in any type of enclosure
that could allow exhaust gases to accumulate such as inside
garages, crawl spaces or inside vehicles of any type. Using
a fan and opening doors or windows does NOT provide
enough fresh air. Direct exhaust gas away from areas
where people are gathered and away from building or
enclosures. If you start to feel sick, dizzy or weak while
using generator, shut it off and get fresh air immediately.
See a doctor. You may have carbon monoxide poisoning.
Do not operate the generator set in an enclosed
compartment such as found in recreational vehicles or
enclosed trucks (even with the tail gate open). All warranties
are voided if the unit is operated in an enclosed area.
Operate only in well-ventilated area.

Have a fire extinguisher nearby. Maintain extinguisher
properly and become familiar with is use. Extinguisher rated
ABC by the NFPS is appropriate for all applications. Consult
the local fire department for the correct type of extinguisher
for various applications.
Benzene and lead, found in some gasoline, have been
identified by some state and federal agencies as causing
cancer or reproductive toxicity. When checking, draining or
adding gasoline, take care not to ingest, breathe the fumes,
or contact gasoline.
Used engine oils have been identified by some state or
federal agencies as causing cancer or reproductive toxicity.
When checking or changing engine oil, take care not to
ingest, breathe the fumes or contact used oil.
Remove all unnecessary grease and oil from the unit.
Accumulated grease and oil can cause overheating and
engine damage and present a potential fire hazard.
DO NOT store anything on the generator set such as oilcans, oily rages, chains, wooden blocks etc. A fire could
result or operation could be adversely affected. Keep the
generator set clean and dry at all times.
DO NOT work on this equipment when mentally or physically
fatigued, or after consuming alcohol or any drugs.
Never remove radiator cap or radiator reservoir cap while
engine is hot or running. Severe burns or injury can occur by
escaping steam or hot engine coolant.
