Brake Fluid Level Check
You will be working close to and inside the machine for these jobs. Lower the work tools if
possible. Select the Maintenance Suspension Mode (WP 0004). Turn OFF the battery disconnect
switch. This will prevent the engine from being started. Ensure the parking brake is engaged. If
you must work with the loader arms raised, the cylinder support struts must be fitted (WP 0021).
· If the brake fluid warning light comes on, check the brake fluid level immediately. Faulty brakes
can kill. If you have to top up the brake reservoir frequently, get the brake system checked by
Field Maintenance. Do not use the machine until the fault has been corrected.
· The fluid can harm your skin. Wear rubber gloves. Cover cuts and grazes.
· Failure to follow these warnings may result in injury or death to personnel.
Park the machine on level ground.
Engage the parking brake.
Lower the work tools to the ground.
Open the brake reservoir box.
Check the fluid in all four reservoirs. If the level has fallen below the lower mark, report your findings at once to Field
The fluid level should be between the two lines (MIN) and (MAX) molded into the side of each
reservoir. If necessary, add fluid as specified below.
Do not use ordinary hydraulic fluid. To add brake fluid, clean the area around the filler cap. Remove the cap and care-
fully pour in Fluid, Brake, Silicone, BFS (Item 5, WP 0033) until it reaches the correct level. Avoid spilling it. Wipe up
any spillage. Do not allow dirt to enter the reservoir. Fit the cap securely.
