The 966H Wheel Loader has a front frame section and a rear frame section with center-point frame articulation.
Clearances in frame articulation area can be greatly reduced as machine turns.
To stop all articulation when machine is being serviced, lifted, or transported, a steering frame lock (located on left side
of machine) is connected between front and rear frame sections.
To allow full steering during operation, the steering frame lock is disconnected from front frame section and stowed on
rear frame section.
