SILICOSIS/RESPIRATORY WARNINGS  
WARNING WARNING  
SILICOSIS WARNING  
RESPIRATORY HAZARDS  
Grinding/cutting/drilling of masonry, concrete, metal and  
other materials with silica in their composition may give  
off dust or mists containing crystalline silica. Silica is a  
basic component of sand, quartz, brick clay, granite and  
numerous other minerals and rocks. Repeated and/or  
substantial inhalation of airborne crystalline silica can  
cause serious or fatal respiratory diseases, including  
silicosis. In addition, California and some other  
authorities have listed respirable crystalline silica as a  
substance known to cause cancer. When cutting such  
materials, always follow the respiratory precautions  
mentioned above.  
Grinding/cutting/drilling of masonry, concrete, metal and  
other materials can generate dust, mists and fumes  
containing chemicals known to cause serious or fatal  
injury or illness, such as respiratory disease, cancer,  
birth defects or other reproductive harm. If you are  
unfamiliar with the risks associated with the particular  
process and/or material being cut or the composition of  
the tool being used, review the material safety data  
sheet and/or consult your employer, the material  
manufacturer/supplier, governmental agencies such as  
OSHA and NIOSH and other sources on hazardous  
materials. California and some other authorities, for  
instance, have published lists of substances known to  
cause cancer, reproductive toxicity, or other harmful  
effects.  
Control dust, mist and fumes at the source where  
possible. In this regard use good work practices and  
follow the recommendations of the manufacturers or  
suppliers, OSHA/NIOSH, and occupational and trade  
associations. Water should be used for dust  
suppression when wet cutting is feasible. When the  
hazards from inhalation of dust, mists and fumes cannot  
be eliminated, the operator and any bystanders should  
always wear a respirator approved by NIOSH/MSHA for  
the materials being used.

TOWING SAFETY PRECAUTIONS (TRAILER USAGE)  
CAUTION Transporting Saw  
SAW LIFTING AND LOADING SAFETY  
CAUTION — Lifting Saw  
Conform to Department ofTransportation (DOT) Safety  
Towing Regulations before transporting saw on public  
roads.  
This saw is very heavy. Use proper heavy lifting  
procedures and DO NOT attempt to lift by the guards.  
DANGER — Do Not Stand Upder Saw  
To reduce the possibility of an accident while transporting the  
saw on public roads, always make sure the trailer that supports  
the saw and the towing vehicle are in good operating condition  
and both units are mechanically sound.  
NEVER stand under or allow anyone else to stand under  
the saw while it is being lifted.  
DO NOT use the handle bars and/or front pointer as lifting  
points.  
The following list of suggestions should be used when towing  
your saw:  
ALWAYS use ramps capable of supporting the weight  
of the saw and the operator to load and unload the saw.  
Check the tire air pressure on both towing vehicle and trailer.  
Refer to the tire manufacturer’s recommended pressure.  
Also check the tire tread wear on both vehicles.  
NEVER tip the engine to extreme angles as it may cause  
oil to gravitate into the cylinder head making the engine  
start difficult.  
Make sure the hitch and coupling of the towing vehicle are  
rated equal to, or greater than the trailergross vehicle weight  
rating” (GVWR) of 6,000 lbs.  
TRANSPORTING (VIATRUCK/TRAILER)

cylinder diesel engine rated at 30 HP (22.37 kW) at 3,000  
RPM. Blade rotation is belt driven. Wheel drive system is  
driven by a hydrostatic transmission consisting of a variable  
displacement pump and two fixed displacement wheel  
motors.  
Blade mounting left side or right side.

tensioning system.  
All SP4030 saws provide a hardy water plumbing system  
that evenly distributes water volume and optimum flow rate  
to both sides of the blade to keep it cool when cutting.The  
basic water system provides a valve that connects to a  
standard garden hose.The water is delivered (via a hose)  
to the saw blade.
