    An ARM dump truck body is heavy-duty equipment. While we have tried to make it as safe as possible, you and those around you can still be seriously hurt or killed if the unit is operated or maintained improperly. It is very important that owners and operators thoroughly understand this manual and comply with all of the instructions herein.

    Occupational safety and health laws require that all dump trucks be equipped with locking control levers, body props and backup alarms. It is against Federal law to operate this machinery without this equipment in place and operational.

    In addition, we have provided your body with safety features which, while not mandated by federal law, are still important for your safety. These devices include warning decals, a hoist control lever that is spring-loaded to return to neutral whenever you release the control lever (this is known as a dead man control) and a body-up light.

    NEVER OPERATE THIS DEVICE IF ANY OF THE REQUIRED SAFETY FEATURES ARE MISSING OR INOPERATIVE. REMEMBER, SAFETY IS EVERYONES JOB.

    Pre-Trip InspectionOPERATE TRUCKS ONLY IN WELL-VENTILATED AREAS. RUNNING ANY VEHICLE IN AN ENCLOSED AREA CAN LEAD TO A BUILD-UP OF CARBON MONOXIDE. CARBON MONOXIDE CAN CAUSE ASPHYXIATION AND DEATH.

    NEVER LEAVE A RAISED BODY UNATTENDED.

    A proper pre-trip inspection is a must in order to make sure that your dump truck is in a safe and roadworthy condition before you start out on the route.

    Everything on this pre-trip inspection checklist is important. The truck should never be operated if any of its equipment isnt in safe working order.

    NEVER OPERATE A DUMP TRUCK UNLESS ALL OF THESE FEATURES ARE FULLY OPERATIONAL AND ALL OF THE VEHICLES SAFETY SYSTEMS (LIGHTS, BRAKES, WIPERS, ETC.) ARE IN GOOD OPERATING CONDITION.

    The procedures outlined here pertain only to the dump body and hoist assembly and generic items that should be checked before driving any motorized vehicle on the highway. In addition to the following items, you must follow all pre-trip recommendations by the manufacturer of the chassis and all state and federal pre- and post-trip inspection requirements.

    Walk-Around Inspection

    1. Check the rear hinge area for visible damage, loose or missing pins, cracking, bending, or other damage to the truck frame in the area of the rear hinge.

    USE CAUTION WHEN CLIMBING ON THE BODY. MAKE SURE THERE IS NO OIL, DIRT OR DEBRIS ON EITHER YOUR SHOES OR ANY OF THE CLIMBING SURFACES.

    2. If you need to climb on the body of the truck at any time during the inspection process, make sure there is no oil, grease or other slippery substance on either your shoes or any of the truck surfaces. Remember to keep either both feet and one hand or both hands and one foot firmly and safely in contact with the truck or the body at all times while you are climbing.

    3. Check to make sure the pins holding the tailgate at the top are fully engaged and secured by a pin keeper.

    4. Check tailgate latching assembly. The hooks must be securely fastened over the pins on the tailgate.

    5. Look under the truck for any dripping oil or accumulation of oil or grease on the floor or signs of leakage.

    6. Check for broken windshield and door glass.

    7. Check to make certain all warning decals are on the body and are clean and visible.

    Leaks/Hoses

    Look for puddles on the ground. Look for dripping fluids on underside

    of engine and transmission. Inspect hoses for condition and leaks.

    Oil Level

    See that oil level is within safe operating range.

    Level must be above refill mark.

    Coolant Level

    Inspect reservoir sight glass, or (if engine is not hot), remove radiator cap and check for visible coolant level.

    Power Steering Fluid

    Check for adequate power steering fluid level. Level must be above refill mark.

    Engine Compartment Belts

    Check the following belts for snugness (up to 3/4-inch play at center of belt), cracks, or frays: Power steering belt Water pump belt Alternator belt Air compressor belt

    Safe Start

    Depress clutch. Place gearshift lever in neutral. Start engine, then release clutch slowly. Ensure air brakes are activated

    by pulling yellow lever out.

    Cab Check/Engine StartOil Pressure Gauge

    Make sure oil pressure gauge is working. Check that pressure gauge shows

    increasing or normal oil pressure or that the warning light goes off.

    If equipped, oil temperature gauge should begin a gradual rise to the normal operating range.

    Temperature Gauge

    Make sure the temperature gauge is working. Temperature should begin to climb

    to the normal operating range or temperature light should be off.

    Air Gauge

    Make sure the air gauge is working properly. Build air pressure to governor cut-

    out, roughly 120-140 PSI.

    Ammeter/Voltmeter

    Check that gauges show alternator and/or generator is charging or that warning light is off.

    Mirrors and Windshield

    Mirrors should be clean and adjusted properly from the inside.

    Windshield should be clean with no illegal stickers, no obstructions, or damage to the glass.

    six fuses or three liquid burning flares. Check for a properly charged

    and rated fire extinguisher.

    Wipers/Washers

    Check that wiper arms and blades are secure, not damaged, and operate smoothly.

    If equipped, windshield washers must operate correctly.
