Do not attempt to jump clear of a tipping vehicle; serious or fatal crushing injuries may result. Vehicle
tips faster than driver can jump free. Failure to comply may result in injury or death to personnel.
Always travel straight up and down slopes, never at an angle or perpendicular to slope. Drive up slope in F (Forward) gear, and
drive down slope in R (Reverse) gear. Remember: the danger of tipping is always present.
When traveling over uneven ground, it is important to keep the FEL active to allow it to be raised or
lowered for ground clearance. Failure to comply may result in damage to equipment.
When traveling uphill or downhill with a loaded bucket, keep bucket on uphill side, as low as possible. If vehicle starts to slip
or become unstable, lower bucket to ground and stop vehicle immediately.
In steep slope conditions, use engine braking to maintain speed control of vehicle; however, do not allow engine to overspeed.
Select a low gear speed before starting down slopes and use brakes to control speed of vehicle if necessary.
When traveling with a loaded bucket, position bucket as low as possible for better stability and visibility.
When driving the vehicle on a public road, comply with
all local laws and regulations. For traveling at speeds in
excess of 12 mph (20 km/h), the vehicle must be
prepared as follows:
Set MODE CONTROL switch to
(1.1) Ensure seat anchor is deployed
Fit backhoe travel stop
