OPERATE HEAVY-DUTY WINCH USING REMOTE-CONTROL UNIT
PREPARE TO OPERATE HEAVY-DUTY WINCH
· Using remote-control unit and operating heavy-duty winch away from vehicle will lessen
the possibility of injury or death to personnel if winch cable separates under tension.
· Excessive noise levels are present any time the heavy-duty winch is operating. Wear
single hearing protection (earplugs or equivalent) while working around equipment when
it is running. Failure to comply may result in injury or death to personnel. Seek medical
aid should you suspect a hearing problem.
