Considerations For Safe Operation
Boom Implements Always Require Extra Precautions
The Boom Grapple should only be placed on machines
with a longer wheel base or track machines –
preferably with enclosed cabs. The Boom Grapple
should only be operated by qualified and experienced
skid steer or tractor loader operators. Seat belts
should be worn, even with the safety bar down. Hard
hats and safety glasses should always be worn.
When attaching the Boom Grapple to the skid steer,
always make sure the attachment pins and dogs are
properly secured. The bottom plate of the Boom
Grapple is deliberately designed to ground when the
skid steer arms are down. This feature will help to
stabilize the machine and slow forward tip motion if
the load is too heavy. The Boom Grapple’s
capabilities are dependent upon the lift capacities
of each machine. If a load cannot be boomed in, you
are probably exceeding the capacity of your
machine. The operator should carry the load low
and ALWAYS BE PREPARED TO DROP THE LOAD IF THE
MACHINE BECOMES UNSTABLE. All loads should be
boomed in and kept as low as possible when
transporting. NEVER GO EITHER BACK OR FORWARD , UP
OR DOWN STEEP SLOPES WITH RAISED LOAD. SIDE SLOPES
ARE ALSO DANGEROUS. When booming out to dump load
in trailer or truck, be close enough to drop load or
use the side of the truck or trailer for
stabilization should machine feel unstable.
When using the Boom Grapple for ditch or pond bank
work, avoid areas where your machine can get stuck.
The Boom Grapple, unlike a bucket, is not designed
to push a stuck machine free. Neither was the Boom
Grapple intended for sideways pushing, pulling or
As with any excavator, backhoe, crane or boom
machine, EXTREME CAUTION should be exercised when
operating in the vicinity of electrical power lines.
Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES should anyone get under or
allow someone else to get under a load.
To use the boom without the grapple, remove the
hydraulic hose from quick release rings and main 1”
boom bolt. Add a clevis or other means of
attachment through this hole.
When lowering the Boom Grapple to unhitch, skid
steer arms may need to be slightly raised, which
still allows the cab door to open. Plate can also
be used for leveling ground. Loading and unloading
your skid steer with the Boom Grapple attached onto
a trailer for transport should be done with boom out
and down, slowly and carefully.
