STARTING ENGINE - CONTINUED
WARN I N G
NEVER use aerosol engine starting aids. Failure to follow this warning may cause an explosion, resulting in
injury or death to personnel.
CAU T I ON
DO NOT crank starter motor for more than 30 seconds at a time. After 30 seconds, allow starter motor to
cool for at least 2 minutes before attempting to start engine again. Excessive heating of starter motor may
result in damage or premature starter failure.
N OT E
Ether injection, when ambient temperature is below 32°F (0°C), is controlled automatically by engine
ECM. Operator DOES NOT manually inject ether.
Turn engine start switch to START to engage starter motor. DO NOT push down on throttle pedal.
Release engine start switch when engine starts.
CAU T I ON
Turbocharger damage can result if engine rpm are not kept low until engine oil pressure is sufficient.
If low engine oil pressure alert indicator does not turn off within 10 seconds after engine starts, stop engine and perform
After engine has started, proceed to Machine Warmup below.
Operate engine at low idle for 5 minutes to warm up engine. Operate engine at idle for 5 minutes to warm up engine. If
temperature is below 0°F (-18°C), allow engine to idle for 10 minutes.
During warmup, monitor alert indicators and gages for any signs of abnormal temperatures or pressures. Shut down
engine at the first sign of a problem.
To assist in hydraulic system warmup, operate steering and work tool hydraulic controls. Ensure that all are functioning
properly. Engage work tool hydraulic controls as follows:
Press bottom of hydraulic lockout (IMPLEMENT DISABLE) switch to unlock hydraulic controls.
Cycle hydraulic controls through all positions.
Continue to warm up machine as follows:
If temperature is greater than 32ºF (0ºC), warm up machine for a total of approximately 15 minutes.
If temperature is less than 32ºF (0ºC), warm up machine for a total of approximately 30 minutes.
If temperature is less than 0ºF (-18ºC) or if hydraulic functions are sluggish, additional time may be needed.
