EQUIPMENT PROTECTION AND CARE
In addition to the WARNINGs in this work package, observe the following for equipment
protection and care.
Ensure all couplers are wiped clean before connection.
The auxiliary control valve must be in the OFF position when coupling or uncoupling rear hydraulic attachments. Failure
to do so may result in damage to the quick couplers and cause overheating of the hydraulic system.
Always store the attachment in a clean dry space, safe from damage or pilferage.
Ensure the circuit pressure hose is connected to the IN port. The circuit return hose is connected to the opposite port. Do
not reverse circuit flow. This can cause damage to internal seals.
Always keep critical attachment markings, such as warning stickers and tags legible.
Do not use the attachment for applications it was not designed for.
Attachment repair should be performed by experienced personnel only.
To engage the compactor, press auxiliary foot pedal (Figure 1) with heel of shoe. To disengage the
compactor, remove heel pressure from auxiliary foot pedal and wait until compactor stops.
For optimal performance, engine rpm should be 1,800 rpm.
