1. The operator must understand the rated load and safe working area of ​​the machine, and it is strictly forbidden for unrelated personnel to board the machine.
2. Before driving, check whether the hydraulic oil, engine oil, transmission oil, fuel, cooling water, and tire pressure are sufficient.
3. When getting on and off the car, face the machine, keep three points in contact with the ladder and handrails (two feet and one hand or two hands and one foot), and it is strictly forbidden to get on and off when the machine is driving.
4. After starting, the engine and hydraulic system should be idling to warm up for about 3 minutes, and the seat belt should be fastened before starting the machine and performing work.
5. Start, turn, drive, brake and stop smoothly, and listen to the running sound of the engine and transmission system, and see if there are any abnormalities. When turning on wet or smooth roads, slow down and do not plant people on the car.
6. When driving, raise the spreader to the top of the driver’s cab to prevent it from affecting the line of sight; check whether the spreader, turn lock and its indicator light are intact, confirm the weight of the container to be lifted and its operation requirements, and do not lift the weight if it is unknown.
7. Check whether the fire extinguisher is in good condition and effective, and smoking is prohibited in the driver’s cabin.
8. Before adjusting the position of the cab, make sure that there are no obstacles in the front, rear, left, or right of the cab.
9. When the rotating lock is not absolutely opened or closed, the vehicle automatic control system will stop the lifting action. Only when the indicator shows the full padlock can it be lifted safely. At the same time, pay attention to the combination of the rotating lock and the box when the spreader is lifted. Excessive reliance on the twist lock indicator to ensure safe lifting.
10. The “BYPASS” button can only be used temporarily when the control fails or the container hanging angle is defective, but before using it, you should make sure that there is no obstacle to the hanging angle, and this button should not be used casually.
11. Don’t overload work, make sure to work in the green area shown on the load meter.
12. When moving the container, retract the boom and keep the container about 3 meters away from the ground. If the container must be moved longitudinally (the length of the container), the spreader must be locked to avoid longitudinal tilt.
13. When working on uneven roads and when turning, you should drive at a low speed. When the boom is fully extended and the box is raised, the speed should be less than 3 km/h, and violent braking and starting are forbidden.
14. Keep the ground in the work area flat to avoid wheel grooves caused by tire slippage.
15.Ramp operations should go up and down in the direction of the slope. Cross-slope driving may cause the machine to overturn at any time. Use appropriate gears for downhill. Never put it in neutral. Generally, the same speed should be used for both uphill and downhill slopes. .
16. Because the steering and braking system rely on the hydraulic system to provide pressure, do not stop the engine when going downhill, otherwise the steering and braking system will not work.
17. Pay attention to pedestrians when driving. Obstacles and potholes on the road, and pay attention to the gap above the machine.
18. People are not allowed to walk or work under the lifted container.
19. It is strictly forbidden to work across the box and use the spreader to move sideways, telescopic and other actions to adjust the box.
20. When the boom is extended to lift the heavy box, after lifting the heavy load, the boom needs to be retracted and then lowered to avoid overturning the center of gravity and causing the vehicle to overturn.
21. It is not allowed to manipulate vehicles and spreaders from positions other than the driver’s seat.
22. When changing the front and rear direction of the vehicle, the vehicle must be stopped before shifting gears.
23. Pay close attention to the warning display of the instrument during the operation, respond promptly or shut down for maintenance, find out the cause, and remove the fault before continuing the operation.
24. When parking, the engine should be idling for a few minutes before turning off, so that the vehicle can be cooled evenly and the related parts should be protected. The machinery should be parked in the designated place, and it is strictly prohibited to park randomly.
25. When leaving the car, place the gear handle in neutral, lock the gear, and pull the parking brake.
26 6. When parking on a ramp, pull the parking brake device well, and use pads to cushion the wheels when stopping for a long time.
27. Do not use the parking brake forcibly, otherwise it will cause serious damage to the system.
28. Strictly follow the various maintenance tasks during the running-in period and the prescribed maintenance period.
29. The various signs attached to the vehicle and attachments require operators to pay attention to their use characteristics and functions.
30. Turn off the engine when refueling, and do not light an open flame when checking the level of the battery or fuel tank.
31. Report for repairs in time for equipment failures found during operation, and fill in the repair records carefully, and fill in the stand-alone operation log carefully after each shift.
32. For the first trial period of long-term failure machinery, each organization should first do no-load test for 20 minutes. The first box of heavy-duty operation should be operated at low speed. If problems are found, the operation should be stopped and reported in time.
33. When front hoisting the manned cage, the manned cage must be used for operation and the personnel must wear seat belts; during the operation, the man must not be driven for long distances (allowed within 50m, the manned cage must be lowered about 50 cm from the ground, The position of the manned cage cannot obstruct the frontal crane’s sight when walking forward).
34. When the driver is reversing, he needs to look back and observe the situation behind him and confirm that the surrounding environment is safe before reversing. The work area is prohibited from entering the work area without permission except A1.B1.A6.B6.C1 and the refrigerated container area. , To prevent scratches, special circumstances such as: bridge failure, rescue and disaster relief are not restricted.
35. When waiting for a long time in the storage yard, it needs to be parked without affecting the operation area; when waiting for a short time, the spreader must be raised to exceed the safe height of the container on the trailer, and the spreader must not stay on the trailer lane to prevent the oil tank from loosing and causing scratches accident.
36. Road driving should comply with relevant traffic management regulations.
37. Operations such as reach stacker hoisting funnel and packing machine
(1) Reach hoisting funnel and grab bucket operations, only J4503.04 can be used. Other reach stackers are forbidden to use, under special circumstances. The J4505.06 reach stacker can only be used after consultation and approval by the leaders of relevant departments.
(2) For front hoisting on the funnel in the port area, wire ropes with lengths of 4.3 meters and 2.5 meters can be used. Workers will directly fasten the shackle to the spreader. The left and right steel ropes must be fastened together, and the spreader should be raised to a certain height. , Before driving; the heightening funnel must be adjusted and transported with 1.5m steel wire rope.
(3) When J4503/04 assists workers to fasten the wire rope, the spreader is strictly forbidden to rotate more than 45 degrees, and the spreader’s side shift is strictly forbidden to exceed 50 cm to prevent the spreader’s center of gravity from deviating too much.
(4) It is strictly forbidden to open 40 feet when tying the wire rope. The driver must correctly judge the size of the funnel and use a 20-foot or 40-foot sling. Then lift the spreader to the top of the funnel. When the worker locks and unhooks the buckle, the reach stacker driver should not leave the working area to prevent the internal leakage of the boom cylinder from automatically sliding down. The worker locks the funnel with the steel wire rope, and waits for the worker to leave after confirming the lock. For the funnel, after receiving the signal from the commander, the front crane can raise the boom steadily. The hoisting height of the funnel is about 50-70cm above the ground before walking. In driving, only low gears can be used. When the reach stacker is driving, he should pay attention to the surrounding situation. If the working environment is complicated, use the walkie-talkie or phone to notify the on-duty team leader to check the way on the spot.
(5) Front hoisting to logistics. Seven-parking funnel, wire ropes are not allowed to exit the gates on the spreader, and a pickup tool truck must lead the road when heavy loads. The front crane driver pays attention to the road conditions and surrounding dangerous points to ensure Drive safely.
(6) The funnel is hoisted from the port area to Qibo or Qibo to the port area. In addition to the above points, special attention should be paid to: the port area and Qibo gate. Road monitoring. Treasury belt conveyors. Traffic lights, etc. Wait. Operate with caution. Drive at low speed. Pay attention to avoiding vehicles.
(7) When lifting and transporting the packing machine, the front crane driver pays attention to the road conditions and walks gently.
(8) When hoisting, keep a height of 50 cm from the ground and a distance of about 80 cm from the front axle.
(9) Pay attention to the pressure loss during the lifting of the reach stacker cylinder, and adjust the height from the ground in time to prevent the uneven road and the boxer from colliding with the ground.
(10) The reach stacker must strictly monitor the overweight alarm and boom extension length, and the horizontal distance of the packer from the front axle of the reach stacker shall not exceed 1.2 meters.
(11) Hoisting funnels. Grab buckets and packing machines need to pass through the port area and the temporary gates of Qiber. It is strictly forbidden to change the hoisting route without permission. When hoisting, the dispatcher can be notified in advance and submitted to the customs for approval before it can be hoisted. Obstructions or fences need to be reported to the dispatcher for cleaning and removal. Temporary doors must be closed and locked in time after being lifted. In special circumstances, the route needs to be changed and reported to the management staff for on-site confirmation.
38. The reach stacker uses the manned cage for manned auxiliary operations and preferentially selects machinery with good performance.
39. Strictly abide by the relevant safety operation regulations issued by the company.
