When filling the fuel tank, always provide a metal-to-metal contact between the container
and the fuel tank. This will prevent a static spark from being generated as fuel flows over me-
Do not allow smoking or the use of an open flame in the immediate vicinity while servic-
ing the batteries. Batteries generate hydrogen, a highly explosive gas.
Exercise care when handling electrolyte. Avoid breathing fumes and do not permit electro-
lyte to come in contact with skin. If electrolyte touches the skin, wash the effected area immedi-
ately with a baking soda solution or with a liberal amount of water. If electrolyte splashes in-
to eyes, wash immediately with a liberal amount of clean water and obtain medical aid as soon
Do not fill the fuel tank while the engine is running. Fuel spilled on a hot engine may ex-
plode and cause injury to personnel.
When the welding machine is operated in an enclosed area, be sure the exhaust fumes are
piped to the outside. Exhaust gases contain carbon monoxide. Continued breathing of exhaust
fumes can be fatal.
Do not operate any welding machine without a welder's helmet. The flash of the welding
arc can cause eye injury.
Do not adjust welding controls while maintaining arc.
Use only approved cleaning solvents to prevent the possibility of fire or poisoning.
Before performing any welding or soldering operation on the fuel tank, steam clean the
tank continuously for at least 2 hours to eliminate explosive vapors.
