Pay attention to safe operation when installing the gearbox. Protect places dangerous to the operator. Do not make any changes to the structure and guards of our gearboxes.

Helical and bevel helical gearboxes may generate noise pressure levels in excess of the permissible noise pressure level, depending on the output power level of the gearbox. Persons working near the gearbox must use the appropriate protection.
The gearboxes may warm up to the extent that their surface becomes hot. Avoid touching the gear surface during operation. The gearbox was packed at the Widi factory according to the terms of delivery, in such a way that it withstands normal transportation.
When lifting the gearbox, use its lifting eyes. See the machine plate for the weight of the gearbox.

Report any damage during transportation immediately to Widi.
