1 Make sure that a JCB Selector grab is positioned on firm, level ground before installation or removal.
2 Make the carrier safe, e.g. parking brake engaged, engine stopped, hydraulic pressure released from the selector grab supply hoses.
Note: The following points apply when preparing the Selector Grab for long term storage:
1 Make sure that the storage area is dry.
2 Make sure the piston rod is at minimum stroke (jaws open) to prevent damage to the rod.
3 Liberally coat hanger bushings, cutting blades, with grease.
4 Seal off the hose connections to prevent ingress of dirt and moisture.
5 Store the selector Grab vertically, securely supported by wooden blocks.
