Operation of this equipment presents a noise hazard to personnel in the area. The noise level
exceeds the allowable limits for unprotected personnel. Wear ear muffs or ear plugs which were
fitted by a trained professional. Failure to do so could cause serious injury to hearing.
Should a break occur in the feed chain, the drill engine will slide down the feed and strike the
centralizer, which could cause serious injury to operator. While operating the drill controls, the
operator must always stand in a position away from the drill.
The spring return mechanism on the tram controls must operate freely at all times. Frequent and
proper lubrication and cleaning of these components is an absolute necessity to insure that they
will always return the valves to a completely off position. Malfunctioning spring return
mechanism can cause unexpected tram activity resulting in death or serious injury.
Always make sure that the safety wire line is secured to the main air supply line before turning on
the air supply. Death or serious injury could result if the hose should come loose.
Under normal operation, the line oiler system is pressurized to 90 p.s.i. Do not open filler cap until
all air pressure has been completely eliminated from the air system. The cap could blow off under
pressure and cause serious injury to personnel.
