WARN I N G
· Hearing protection is required if within 20 ft (6 m) of an operating machine. Hearing protection is also
required when operating without Rollover Protective Structure/Falling Object Protective Structure (ROPS/
FOPS) during transport procedures. Failure to wear hearing protection may cause hearing loss.
· When operating machine without ROPS/FOPS, drive with extreme caution, at low idle, and in 1st gear
forward or reverse ONLY. Machine has no rollover/falling object protection without ROPS/FOPS. Failure to
follow this warning may cause injury or death to personnel or damage to equipment.
As part of this procedure, the top portion of the ROPS/FOPS cab is removed from machine. Operation of the machine
without ROPS/FOPS, to drive on and off the trailer, is required.
