Do not smoke or permit any open flame in area of machine while you are servicing fuel system. Be
sure hose nozzle is grounded against filler tube during refueling to prevent static electricity. Failure
to follow this warning may result in injury or death to personnel or damage to equipment.
Operating personnel must wear fuel-resistant gloves when handling fuels. If exposed to fuel,
promptly wash exposed skin and change fuel-soaked clothing.
Always stop engine prior to refueling. If equipped with arctic cold weather starting aid system, turn
engine coolant heater off.
Do not perform fuel system checks, inspections, or maintenance while smoking or near fire, flames,
or sparks. Fuel may ignite, causing injury or death to personnel or damage to equipment.
Step 1. Check the fuel gauge to ensure enough fuel is present.
If empty, refuel the machine.
Step 2. Check for broken, leaking, or kinked fuel lines and hoses.
If any of these conditions are found, notify Field Maintenance.
