Discussion:
Tether weight limit

Does anyone know where to find the tether hook up weight limit for Raymond 9700 Swing Reach and Orderpicker?
Manuals do not say and my company's trainer did not know. A customer's safety person was asking me.

Thank you!

I suggest you contact your Raymond dealer. they would be able to answer your question and get you a copy of the right operator manual. It may be, I am wrong about the data tag on the overhead, so contact your Raymond dealer will help you.

OSHA points the users to the ANSI/ITSDF B56.1 standard. That document, in section 4.17, gives guidelines for the weight of an operator, the type of fall protection that is needed, and the possible impact on the truck capacity.

The actual truck tether anchorage point is tested to a design standard, also in that same standard, which is based on absorbing the energy of a fall. Some types of tethers are designed to prevent the fall where others are designed to stop a fall after it has occurred. Given there are so many factors for the different types of fall protection used and how they interact with the truck, it would be potentially misleading or confusing to communicate a "hard limit" on the truck. This is really a requirement of the user to specify the correct equipment for their application and operators.
Also if you request publication 1089042E page 83 and 84 will advise you.

Ah, probably because each truck with it's different options could have different capacities. Looking at our Raymond order pickers I observed that the capacities are just on the lanyards themselves.

Thanks I am that dealer lol. But thank you.
No one knew the info was in the references on the data plate which have to be looked up instead of just putting it on the unit itself.

Joebob I would still contact your Raymond dealer. They should be able to answer your question and get you a copy of the correct operator manual. I could be mistaken about the data tag on the overhead, again your Raymond dealer will help you.

Uwe,

Respectfully this is not correct. Your answer contradicts itself as there is no allowance in the Manual or the B56.1 standard for a second person and "500 lbs" occurs nowhere in the standard. Refer to Table 1(a).

None of them where I work have a label on the hookup point for the fall protection device aka lanyard.

There should be a data tag right by the tether mount on the overhead guard. If not contact your Raymond dealer.

500 pounds
1 Safety Standard for Low and High Lift Trucks (see below). Both the operator and the additional person may attach energy absorbing or self-retracting lanyards to the full length tether bar on Raymond Orderpicker trucks so long as the combined weight of both individuals does not exceed 500 pounds.

Joebob,

Page 16 (Spec Tag) & 84 (B56.1 ref) of the Operator Manual as well as the Spec tag on the truck state that the ANSI/ITSDF B56.1 Safety Standard governs this and that the standard rating is for a 220 pound operator. Hope that helps.
