• 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

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

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.

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.

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 10-170-2].

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.
