OPERATOR CONTROLS CONTINUED
COMPONENT OR INDICATOR
The steering wheel operates the steering valve, which
directs hydraulic fluid into the steering cylinders. When
the steering wheel is turned clockwise, the steering
cylinders articulate the loader so a right turn can be
made. When the steering wheel is turned
counterclockwise, the loader is articulated so a left turn
can be made. The loader continues to articulate as long
as you turn the steering wheel. When you stop turning
the steering wheel, the loader will remain in its current
Hand Throttle Control
The hand throttle is used to keep the engine running at
a speed higher than low idle without keeping the
accelerator pedal depressed. Turn the handle to the left
or right to unlock it. Pull the control out until the engine
is running at the desired speed. Turn the handle to the
left or right to lock it into this position. Push the control in
before leaving the operator's compartment.
Parking Brake Warning Light
This light will be on when the parking brake is applied
and the ignition switch is turned on.
The ether injector should be used only when the
air temperature is below freezing.
The ether injector button injects ether into the engine
when pressed down. The ether aids in starting the
engine during cold weather.
Refer to WP 0005 for operation of the ether injector.
Parking Brake Lever
The parking brake should always be applied
when the operator is not in the driver's seat.
To apply the parking brake push the lever up and
forward; to release pull back and down. It is
recommended that the parking brake only be used to
hold the loader after it has come to a stop. However,
should the brake system ever fail, the parking brake
may be used to make an emergency stop.
Boom Stop Positioner Control
The boom is equipped with an air operated stop
positioner system. The system will automatically stop
the boom to any preselected position of its raising arc.
