SEAT BAR RESTRAINT SYSTEM

P–00660

Description 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.

B

AVOID INJURY OR DEATH B–13915

The seat bar system must lock the lift and tilt control pedals in neutral when the seat bar is up. Service the system if pedals do not lock correctly. W–2105–1285

C

Seat Bar Inspection Sit in the seat and fasten the seat belt. Engage the parking brake. Pull the seat bar all the way down. Start the engine, activate the lift arm operation button. Operate each foot pedal to check both the lift and tilt functions. Raise the lift arms until the bucket is about 2 feet (600 mm) off the ground. Raise the seat bar. Try to move each foot pedal. Pedals must be firmly locked in neutral position. There must be no motion of the lift arms or tilt (bucket) when the pedals are pushed. Pull the seat bar down, activate the lift arm operation button, lower the lift arms and place the bucket flat on the ground. Stop the engine. Raise the seat bar and operate the foot pedals to be sure that the pedals are firmly locked in the neutral position. Unbuckle the seat belt.

SPARK ARRESTOR MUFFLER

A

Cleaning Procedure See the Service Schedule (Page 1–1) for the service interval for cleaning the spark arrestor muffler. Do not operate the loader with a defective exhaust system.

1 P–01593

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. 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. W–2050–1285

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

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

I–2022–0595

W–2011–1285

Stop the engine. Open the rear door. Raise the rear grill.

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.

P–01535

Tire Rotation

B

Check the tires regularly for wear, damage and pressure (See Specification, Section 8 for the correct tire pressure). Rear tires usually wear faster than front tires. To keep the tire wear even, move the front tires to the rear and rear tires to the front [B]. 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 speed 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.

B–09976

Tire Mounting 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. 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. W–2078–1285

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.
