SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (CONT’D)

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

Use the procedure in the Operation & Maintenance Manual for cleaning the spark arrestor muffler (if equipped).

Fire Prevention The machine and attachments have components that are at high temperature 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.

Figure 1

Flammable debris (leaves, straw, etc.) must be removed regularly. If flammable debris is allowed to accumulate, it will increase fire hazard. Clean often to avoid this accumulation. Flammable debris in the engine compartment is a potential hazard. The spark arrestor muffler 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. •

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

The operator cab, engine compartment, and engine cooling system must be inspected every day and cleaned if necessary to prevent fire hazard and overheating.

Check all electrical wiring and connections for damage. Keep the battery terminals clean and tight. Repair or replace any damaged part.

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 any engine which has glow plugs. These starting aids can cause explosion and injure you or bystanders.

Always clean the machine, disconnect the battery, and disconnect the wiring from the 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 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!

Know where fire extinguishers and first aid kits are located and how to use them. Fire extinguishers are available from your Bobcat dealer [Figure 1].

Fasten chains to the ends of the blade (Item 1) [Figure 10-12-1] and [Figure 10-12-2] and up to a lifting fixture above the canopy/cab. The lifting fixture must extend over the sides of the canopy/cab to prevent the chains from hitting the ROPS/TOPS. Install a one inch (25 mm) bolt and nut (Grade 5 or 8) through the holes at the boom (Item 2) [Figure 10-12-1] and [Figure 10-12-2]. Fasten a chain from the bolt to the lift fixture.

Put all the control levers in neutral.

WARNING •

TRANSPORTING THE EXCAVATOR ON A TRAILER Loading And Unloading

Figure 10-30-2

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. Secure the parking brakes and block the wheels of the transport vehicle.

1

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.

1

Use metal loading ramps with a slip resistant surface. Use ramps that are the correct length and width and can support the weight of the machine. The rear of the trailer must be blocked or supported when loading or unloading the excavator to prevent the front of the transport vehicle from raising.

Fasten chains to the front corners of the blade (Item 1) [Figure 10-30-2] and to the tie down loop at the rear of the track frame (Item 1) [Figure 10-30-3] to prevent it from moving when going up or down slopes or during sudden stops. P-69892

Use chain binders to tighten the chains and then safely tie the chain binder levers to prevent loosening.

Move the machine forward onto the transport vehicle [Figure 10-30-1].

WARNING

Do not change direction of the machine while it is on the ramps. Lower the boom, arm, bucket, and blade to the transport vehicle. Stop the engine and remove the key (if equipped).

Adequately designed ramps of sufficient strength are needed to support the weight of the machine when loading onto a transport vehicle. Wood ramps can break and cause personal injury. W-2058-0494

WARNING AVOID BURNS Do not remove radiator cap when the engine is hot. You can be seriously burned.

Too much antifreeze reduces cooling system efficiency and may cause serious premature engine damage.

W-2070-1203

Too little antifreeze reduces the additives which protect the internal engine components; reduces the boiling point and freeze protection of the system.

WARNING Wear safety glasses to prevent eye injury when any of the following conditions exist: • When fluids are under pressure. • Flying debris or loose material is present. • Engine is running. • Tools are being used.

Always add a premixed solution. Adding full strength concentrated coolant can cause serious premature engine damage. I-2124-0497

Add premixed coolant; 47% water and 53% propylene glycol to the radiator and recovery tank. One gallon and one pint of propylene glycol mixed with one gallon of water is the correct mixture of coolant to provide a -34°F (-37°C) freeze protection.

SEAT BELT 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 10-150-1]. 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.
