at bottom of hole. If necessary fill to bottom of hole with Simplex Hydraulic Oil or equivalent. CAUTION: Do not
over fill or add oil if ram being used with pump is in the raised position. Install breather plug in place of pipe plug
(item No. 25). The breather plug is in bag attached to pump. CAUTION: Failure to install the breather plug can
result in damage to the equipment.
Connect hose half coupler on end of hose to ram half coupler on ram taking care to assemble hose from
advance port of pump to bottom of ram and hose from retract port of pump to top of ram. Be sure knurled nuts
on couplers are tight. CAUTION: Failure to have couplers tightly connected can result in injury or damage to the
To extend cylinder, move control handle to advance position and pump on handle. CAUTION: Do not attempt to
