Stop, cool and clean engine of flammable materials before checking fluids. Never service or adjust machine with the engine running unless instructed to do so in the manual. Avoid contact with leaking hydraulic fluid or diesel fuel under pressure. It can penetrate the skin or eyes. Never fill fuel tank with engine running, while smoking or when near open flame.

Keep body, jewelry and clothing away from moving parts, electrical contact, hot parts and exhaust. Wear eye protection to guard from battery acid, compressed springs, fluids under pressure and flying debris when engines are running or tools are used. Use eye protection approved for type of welding. Keep rear door closed except for service. Close and latch door before operating the excavator.

Lead-acid batteries produce flammable and explosive gases. Keep arcs, sparks, flames and lighted tobacco away from batteries. Batteries contain acid which burns eyes or skin on contact. Wear protective clothing. If acid contacts body, flush well with water. For eye contact flush well and get immediate medical attention.

Maintenance procedures which are given in the Operation & Maintenance Manual can be performed by the owner/ operator without any specific technical training. Maintenance procedures which are not in the Operation & Maintenance Manual must be performed ONLY BY QUALIFIED BOBCAT SERVICE PERSONNEL. Always use genuine Bobcat replacement parts. The Service Safety Training Course is available from your Bobcat dealer. MSW20-0805

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (Cont’d) • Wear tight fitting clothing and any other required safety apparel when operating or servicing the excavator. • Wear safety glasses when maintaining or servicing the excavator. • Exhaust gases can kill, vent engine exhaust outdoors. • Know where fire extinguisher and first aid kits are located and how to use them. • Do not run the excavator where exhaust, arcs, sparks or hot components can contact flammable material, explosive dust or gases.

• Check fuel and hydraulic tubes, hoses and fittings for damage and leakage. Never use open flame or bare skin to check

for leaks. Tighten or replace any parts that show leakage. Always clean fluid spills. Do not use gasoline or diesel fuel for cleaning parts. Use commercial nonflammable solvents.

• Do not use ether or starting fluids on an engine that has glow plugs. These starting aids can explode and injure you. • Clean the excavator before doing any welding. Remove both battery cables (negative (–) cable first). Cover rubber hoses, battery and all other flammable parts. Keep a fire extinguisher near the excavator when welding.

• Have good ventilation when welding or grinding painted parts. Wear a dust mask when grinding painted parts. Toxic dust or gas can be produced.

• Stop the engine and let it cool before adding fuel. NO SMOKING! • Use the procedures in this manual for installing, connecting and jump starting batteries.

TRANSPORTING THE HYDRAULIC EXCAVATOR

A

Procedure

• Make sure the parking brakes on the transport vehicle are engaged and wheels are blocked.

• Align the ramps with the center of the transport vehicle. Secure the ramps to the truck bed and be sure ramp angle does not exceed 15 degrees.

• Use metal loading ramps and slip resistant surface. • Make sure the ramps are the correct length and width, and can support the weight of the machine.

P–11448

• The rear of the trailer must be properly blocked or supported when loading or unloading the excavator.

B

• Determine the direction of the track movement before moving the machine (blade forward). Engage the swing lock pin to lock the upperstructure.

• Move the machine forward on the transport vehicle [A]. • Do not change direction of the machine while it is on the ramps.

• After loading the machine, position the arm and bucket as shown [B].

• Lower the boom. P–11449

• Stop the engine and remove the key.

C

Use the following procedure to fasten the Excavator to the transport vehicle:

• Put blocks under the front and rear of the track shoes.

• Fasten holddown chains to the front corners of the

blade and to the tie down loop at the track frame to prevent it from moving when going up or down slopes, or during sudden stops [B], [C] & [D].

• Use chain binders to tighten the chains and then

safely tie the chain binder levers to prevent loosening. P–11450

• When transporting the machine, observe the rules, motor vehicle laws and vehicle limit ordinances. Use a transport and towing vehicle of adequate length and capacity.

D

Steel loading ramps are needed to support the weight of the machine when loading onto a transport vehicle. Wood ramps can break and cause personal injury. W–2058–0887

SPARK ARRESTOR MUFFLER (If Equipped)

A

Cleaning Procedure See the SERVICE SCHEDULE Page 1–3 for the correct service interval. Do not operate the excavator with a defective exhaust system.

1 P–11417

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. 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.

When an engine is running in an enclosed area, fresh air must be added to avoid concentration of exhaust fumes. If the engine is stationary, vent the exhaust outside. Exhaust fumes contain odorless, invisible gases which can kill without warning.

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

W–2050–1285

Stop engine and allow the muffler to cool before cleaning the spark chamber. Wear safety glasses or goggles. Failure to obey can cause serious injury.

I–2061–0195

Stop the engine. Open the engine cover.

W–2011–1285

Never use machine in atmosphere with explosive dust or gases or where exhaust can contact flammable material. Failure to obey warnings can cause injury or death.

Remove the plug (Item 1) [A] from the bottom of the muffler. NOTE: Allow the muffler to cool before removing the plug.

W–2068–1285

Start the engine and run for about ten 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 (Item 1) [A].) Stop the engine. Install and tighten the plug. Close the engine cover. When the engine is running during service, the steering levers must be in neutral. Failure to do so can cause injury or death. W–2203–0595
