STABILIZER CONTROLS CONTINUED
Occasionally there may be a need for fully extending one or both stabilizers in order to level the machine on slopes.
In these conditions, it may be necessary to use the boom (Figure 2, Item 1) to apply a down force to enable the stabilizers (Fig-
ure 2, Item 2) to fully extend. In these conditions, raising the bucket (Figure 2, Item 3) off the ground also helps. Make use of
the inclinometer to ensure the machine is level before starting excavating operations.
