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].

See the SERVICE SCHEDULE Contents, Page 10-01 for the service interval to check the wheel nuts. The correct torque is 50-55 ft.-lb. (68-75 N•m) torque.

Do not inflate tires above specified pressure. Failure to use correct tire mounting procedure can cause an explosion which can result in injury or death.

Tire Rotation

W-2078-1285

Check the tires regularly for wear, damage and pressure. (See SPECIFICATIONS Page SPEC-01 for the correct tire pressure.)

IMPORTANT

Figure 10-170-1

Inflate tires to the MAXIMUM pressure shown on the sidewall of the tire. DO NOT mix brands of tires used on the same loader. I-2057-0794

Tires are to be repaired only by an authorized person using the proper procedures and safety equipment. Tires and rims must always be checked for correct size before mounting. Check rim and tire bead for damage.

B-9976

Rear tires usually wear faster than front tires. To keep tire wear even, move the front tires to the rear and rear tires to the front [Figure 10-170-1].

The rim flange must be cleaned and free of rust. The tire bead and rim flange must be lubricated with a rubber lubricant before mounting the tire, avoid excessive pressure which can rupture the tire and cause serious injury or death. During inflation of the tire, check the tire pressure frequently to avoid over inflation.

It is important to keep the same size tires on each side of the loader. If different sizes are used, each tire will be turning at a different rate and cause excessive wear. The tread bars of all the tires must face the same direction. Recommended tire pressure must be maintained to avoid excessive tire wear and loss of stability and handling capability. Check for the correct pressure before operating the loader.

SPARK ARRESTOR MUFFLER

WARNING

(See SERVICE SCHEDULE on Page 10-70-1) for correct service interval. Do not operate the loader with a defective exhaust system.

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.

Cleaning Procedure

W-2068-1285

WARNING Stop engine and allow the muffler to cool before cleaning the spark chamber. Wear safety goggles. Failure to obey can cause serious injury. W-2011-1285

WARNING

WARNING When the engine is running during service, the steering levers must be in neutral and the parking brake engaged. Failure to do so can cause injury or death. W-2006-0284

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. W-2050-1285

Start the engine. Have a second person (wearing safety goggles) hold a block of wood over the outlet of the muffler (with the engine running) for about 10 seconds. Stop the engine and install the plug. Close the rear door.

Figure 10-180-1

IMPORTANT This loader 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. 1 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.

P-37933

Stop the engine. Open the rear door. Remove the plug (Item 1) [Figure 10-180-1] from the bottom of the muffler.

SEAT BAR RESTRAINT SYSTEM

Seat Bar Maintenance

The seat bar restraint system has a pivoting seat bar with arm rests and has spring loaded interlocks for the lift and tilt control pedals. The operator controls the use of the seat bar. The seat bar in the down position helps to keep the operator in the seat. The interlocks require the operator to lower the seat bar in order to operate the foot pedal controls. When the seat bar is up, the lift and tilt pedals are locked when returned to the neutral position.
