• Written authorization from Grove Gear is required to

operate or use reducers in man lift or people moving
devices .

• Check to make certain application does not exceed

the allowable load capacities published in the current
catalog .

• Buyer shall be solely responsible for determining the

adequacy of the product for any and all uses to which
Buyer shall apply the product. The application by Buyer
shall not be subject to any implied warranty of fitness for
a particular purpose .

• For safety, Buyer or User should provide protective guards

over all shaft extensions and any moving apparatus
mounted thereon. The User is responsible for checking all
applicable safety codes in his area and providing suitable
guards. Failure to do so may result in bodily injury and/or
damage to equipment.

• Hot oil and reducers can cause severe burns. Use extreme

care when removing lubrication plugs and vents.

• Make certain that the power supply is disconnected before

attempting to service or remove any components. Lock
out the power supply and tag it to prevent unexpected
application power .

• Reducers are not to be considered fail safe or self-locking

devices. If these features are required, a properly sized,
independent holding device should be utilized. Reducers
should not be used as a brake.

• Any brakes that are used in conjunction with a reducer

must be sized or positioned in such a way so as to not
subject the reducer to loads beyond the catalog rating.

• Lifting supports including eyebolts are to be used for

vertically lifting the gearbox only and no other associated
attachments or motors.

• Use of an oil with an EP additive on units with backstops

may prevent proper operation of the backstop. Injury to
personnel, damage to the reducer or other equipment may
result .

• Overhung loads subject shaft bearings and shafts to stress

which may cause premature bearing failure and or shaft
breakage from bending fatigue, if not sized properly.

• Test run unit to verify operation. If the unit tested is a

prototype, that unit must be of current production.

• If the speed reducer cannot be located in a clear and

dry area with access to adequate cooling air supply,
then precautions must be taken to avoid the ingestion of
contaminants such as water and the reduction in cooling
ability due to exterior contaminants.

• Mounting bolts should be routinely checked to ensure that

the unit is firmly anchored for proper operation.
