OPERATING MACHINE CONTINUED
Changing Direction and Engine Speed
1. When changing directions, it is best to reduce engine speed.
2. Keep a loaded bucket close to the ground.
3. Stop machine, if necessary, to recover from an unstable condition.
4. To change speed:
a. Throttle lever (Figure 2, Item 2) is for setting engine speed. Increase engine speed by pushing forward on
throttle lever. Lower engine speed by pulling back in throttle lever. Engine speed is constant at throttle lever
b. Throttle pedal (Figure 2, Item 1) is for momentary increase in engine speed. When pedal is released,
engine speed defaults to throttle lever setting.
