WORK EQUIPMENT CONTROLS AND FUNCTIONS
The work equipment is controlled by means of the right and left work equipment control levers. The left lever controls the arm and the turret swing, while the right lever controls the boom and the bucket. When the levers are released, they automatically return to the neutral position and the work equipment remain in the position where they stopped.
The movements of the levers and the corresponding movements of the equipment are shown in the diagrams below.
To operate the arm, shift the left control lever forward or backward.
To swing the turret, shift the left control lever to the left or to the right.
To operate the boom, shift the right control lever forward or backward.
To operate the bucket, shift the right control lever to the left or to the right.
On machines with adjustable track gauge it is possible to modify the blade width to adapt it to the track gauge; two blade configurations are available.
A – Narrow blade
B – Wide blade
This operation must be carried out on a level surface, with the equipment resting on the ground and after stopping the engine. To modify the blade width, remove the pins (1) and the extensions (2).
Put back the extensions, inverting their position (the right one on the left side and the left one on the right side, as shown in the figure).
OPERATIONS FOR WHICH IT IS NOT ALLOWED TO EXPLOIT THE DROPPING FORCE OF THE BUCKET
Do not exploit the dropping force of the bucket to use it as a pickaxe, breaker, or pile driver.
This may considerably reduce the life of the machine.
OPERATIONS FOR WHICH IT IS NOT ALLOWED TO EXPLOIT THE FORCE OF GRAVITY OF THE MACHINE
Do not use the force of gravity of the machine to carry out digging operations.
When working on hard rocky surfaces, use some other method to break the rock into small pieces before excavating. This avoids any damage to the machine and is also more economical.
SUPPORT THE MACHINE WITH BOTH SIDES OF THE BLADE
When using the blade as a stabilizer, avoid loading all the weight of the machine on one side of the blade only.
