Galbreath U5-OR-174 operating guidelines and safety tips

Here are some of the essentials that all operators should know:

  • Never use chains when hooking onto a container: The hoist is strong enough to snap most types of chain, including heavy-duty industrial brands.
  • Work the controls one at a time: The hoist is not designed to carry out multiple functions simultaneously.
  • Make sure the hoist is fully lowered prior to putting the truck in motion.
  • Make sure the PTO is disengaged before driving the truck.
  • Allow the truck to idle for several minutes before engaging the PTO in cold weather: This will give the hydraulic oil a chance to warm up.
  • Use extra care on bumpy or uneven roads: Otherwise, you may put undue stress on the equipment.
  • Never exceed the maximum container weight of 60,000 pounds.
  • Keep an eye out while driving on landfill property: Watch out for depressions, obstacles, or overhead obstructions such as electrical lines.
  • Feather the control valve when unloading a heavy container: This will help to ensure smooth, even operation.
  • Make sure the container’s weight is well distributed across the wheelbase: Damage may occur if the dumpster is too far forward or too far back.
  • Ensure that the trailer brakes are operating properly prior to putting the equipment in motion: The air reservoir tanks must be fully pressurized in order for the braking system to work.
  • Follow all recommended maintenance steps: Including a daily inspection of components such as the cable, cable ends, hydraulic hoses, reflectors, wiring, and weld points.
