FIRE PREVENTION

Hydraulic System Check hydraulic tubes, hoses and fittings for damage and leakage. Never use open flame or bare skin to check for leaks. Hydraulic tubes and hoses must be properly routed and have adequate support and secure clamps. Tighten or replace any parts that show leakage.

Maintenance

Always clean fluid spills. Do not use gasoline or diesel fuel for cleaning parts. Use commercial nonflammable solvents.

The machine and some attachments have components that are at high temperatures under normal operating conditions. The primary source of high temperatures is the engine and exhaust system. The electrical system, if damaged or incorrectly maintained, can be a source of arcs or sparks.

Fueling

Flammable debris (leaves, straw, etc.) must be removed regularly. If flammable debris is allowed to accumulate, it can cause a fire hazard. Clean often to avoid this accumulation. Flammable debris in the engine compartment is a potential fire hazard.

Stop the engine and let it cool before adding fuel. No smoking! Do not refuel a machine near open flames or sparks. Fill the fuel tank outdoors.

The operator’s area, engine compartment and engine cooling system must be inspected every day and cleaned if necessary to prevent fire hazards and overheating.

Starting Do not use ether or starting fluids on any engine that has glow plugs. These starting aids can cause explosion and injure you or bystanders.

All fuels, most lubricants and some coolants mixtures are flammable. Flammable fluids that are leaking or spilled onto hot surfaces or onto electrical components can cause a fire.

Use the procedure in the Operation & Maintenance Manual for connecting the battery and for jump starting.

Operation Do not use the machine where exhaust, arcs, sparks or hot components can contact flammable material, explosive dust or gases.

Spark Arrestor Exhaust System The spark arrestor exhaust system is designed to control the emission of hot particles from the engine and exhaust system, but the muffler and the exhaust gases are still hot.

Electrical

Check the spark arrestor exhaust system regularly to make sure it is maintained and working properly. Use the procedure in the Operation & Maintenance Manual for cleaning the spark arrestor muffler (if equipped). Check all electrical wiring and connections for damage. Keep the battery terminals clean and tight. Repair or replace any damaged part or wires that are loose or frayed. Battery gas can explode and cause serious injury. Use the procedure in the Operation & Maintenance Manual for connecting the battery and for jump starting. Do not jump start or charge a frozen or damaged battery. Keep any open flames or sparks away from batteries. Do not smoke in battery charging area. SI EXC-0308 SM

VII

337/341 Excavator


FIRE PREVENTION (CONT’D) Welding And Grinding Always clean the machine and attachment, disconnect the battery, and disconnect the wiring from the Bobcat controllers before welding. Cover rubber hoses, battery and all other flammable parts. Keep a fire extinguisher near the machine when welding. Have good ventilation when grinding or welding painted parts. Wear dust mask when grinding painted parts. Toxic dust or gas can be produced. Dust generated from repairing nonmetallic parts such as hoods, fenders or covers can be flammable or explosive. Repair such components in a well ventilated area away from open flames or sparks. Fire Extinguishers

Know where fire extinguishers and first aid kits are located and how to use them. Inspect the fire extinguisher and service the fire extinguisher regularly. Obey the recommendations on the instructions plate.

COOLING SYSTEM (CONT’D) Checking Coolant Level

IMPORTANT

Open the tailgate.

AVOID ENGINE DAMAGE Always use the correct ratio of water to antifreeze.

Figure 10-70-13

Too much antifreeze reduces cooling system efficiency and may cause serious premature engine damage. Too little antifreeze reduces the additives which protect the internal engine components; reduces the boiling point and freeze protection of the system. Always add a premixed solution. Adding full strength concentrated coolant can cause serious premature engine damage.

See Service Schedule for the correct service interval. See SERVICE SCHEDULE on Page 10-50-1 Do not operate the excavator with a defective exhaust system.

IMPORTANT

1

This excavator is factory equipped with a U.S.D.A. Forestry Service approved spark arrestor muffler. It is necessary to do maintenance on this spark arrestor muffler to keep it in working condition. The spark arrestor muffler must be serviced by dumping the spark chamber every 100 hours of operation.

P-49132

Remove the plug (Item 1) [Figure 10-130-48] from the bottom of the muffler.

If this machine is operated on flammable forest, brush or grass covered land, it must be equipped with a spark arrestor attached to the exhaust system and maintained in working order. Failure to do so will be in violation of California State Law, Section 4442 PRC.

Start the engine and run for about 10 seconds while a second person, wearing safety glasses, holds a piece of wood over the outlet of the muffler. The carbon deposits will be forced out of the muffler plug hole.

Make reference to local laws and regulations for spark arrestor requirements.

Close the tailgate.

Stop the engine. Install and tighten the plug.

Inspection And Maintenance

WARNING Failure to properly inspect and maintain the seat belt can cause lack of operator restraint resulting in serious injury or death. W-2466-0703

Check the seat belt daily for correct function. Inspect the seat belt system thoroughly yearly or more often if the machine is exposed to severe environmental conditions or applications. The seat belt system should be repaired or replaced if it shows cuts, fraying, extreme or unusual wear, significant discolorations due to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun, dusty/dirty conditions, abrasion to the seat belt webbing, or damage to the buckle, latch plate, retractor (if equipped), or hardware. B-22283

The items below are referenced in [Figure 10-150-51]. 1. Check the seat belt webbing. If the system is equipped with a retractor, pull the webbing completely out and inspect the full length of the webbing. look for cuts, wear, fraying, dirt and stiffness. 2. Check the buckle and latch for proper function. Make sure latch plate is not excessively worn, deformed or buckle is not damaged. 3. Check the retractor web storage device (if equipped) by extending the seat belt webbing to determine if it extends and retracts the webbing correctly. 4. Check webbing in areas exposed to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun or extreme dust or dirt. If the original color of the webbing in these areas is extremely faded and / or the webbing is packed with dirt, the webbing strength may have weakened. See your Bobcat dealer for approved seat belt system replacement parts for your machine.
