Do not leave the operators seat while the engine is running. Failure to comply may result in
accidental movement of vehicle causing injury or DEATH to personnel.
The use of ether as a starting aid is prohibited. Ether produces extremely high firing
pressures which may cause serious engine damage. Failure to comply may result in
damage to equipment.
Before moving out, drive slowly for 100 yards (91m) to warm the suspension lubricants.
Failure to comply may result in damage to equipment.
When the MASTER switch is ON, the warning lights will be lit until the engine is started and
oil pressure builds up.
1. Make sure unit maintenance has installed proper grade oil for main engine, transmission and APU. Unit
maintenance should flush and refill each oil reservoir twice for the main engine, transmission and APU with OEA
prior to operating under extreme cold weather.
