Fastening the Seat Belt
The ROPS cab is designed to give you protection in an accident. If you do not wear your seat belt
you could be thrown about inside the machine, or thrown out of the machine and crushed. You must
wear a seat belt when using the machine. Fasten the seat belt before starting the engine.
Release the seat belt only after turning off the engine. Failure to follow this warning can result in
serious injury or death to personnel.
If the ignition is turned ON, a warning light on the EMS display panel will illuminate and a buzzer
will sound while you are sitting in the seat with the seat belt not fastened. The buzzer can be
canceled by pressing the OK button on the EMS display unit.
Sit correctly in the seat. Pull the belt (Figure 19, Item 1) from its reel holder in one continuous movement.
Push the male fitting (Figure 19, Item 2) into the buckle (Figure 19, Item 3) until it latches into position. Ensure the seat
belt is not twisted and the lap portion of the 3-point harness is over your hips, not over your stomach.
If the belt locks before the male fitting (Figure 19, Item 2) has been engaged, allow the belt to fully
retract in its reel holder and then try again. The inertia mechanism may lock if you pull the belt too
sharply or if the machine is parked on an incline. In such cases, ease the belt gently from its reel
If the ignition is turned ON, the warning light will go out and the buzzer will stop when the seat belt
