Operation & Maintenance Manual

OPERATING PROCEDURE (CONT’D)

Foot Pedal Machines (Cont’d)

Leveling The Ground (Using Float Position):

Figure 81

Put the lift arms in float position by pushing the pedal all
the way forward (1[Figure 81] until the pedal is locked
in the forward position.

Tilt the bucket forward (2[Figure 81] to change the
position of the cutting edge of the bucket.

With the bucket tilted farther forward, there is more force
on the cutting edge and more loose material can be
moved.

Drive backward to level loose material.

Push the bottom of the lift pedal (3) [Figure 81] to unlock
the float position.

IMPORTANT

Never drive forward when the hydraulic control for lift
arms is in float position.

Digging A Hole

Figure 82

Lower the lift arms all the way (1) [Figure 82]. Put the
cutting edge of the bucket on the ground (2) [Figure 82].

Drive forward slowly and continue to tilt the bucket
down (2[Figure 82] until it enters the ground.

Raise the cutting edge a small amount (3) [Figure 82] to
increase traction and keep an even digging depth.
Continue to drive forward until the bucket is full. When the
ground is hard, raise and lower the cutting edge of the
bucket (2 & 3) [Figure 82] while driving forward slowly.

Tilt the bucket backward (3) [Figure 82] as far as it will go
when the bucket is full.

Filling The Hole

Figure 83

Lower the lift arms (1) [Figure 83] and put the cutting
edge of the bucket on the ground (2) [Figure 83]. Drive
forward to the edge of the hole to push the material into
the hole.

Tilt the bucket forward (2) [Figure 83] as soon as it is
past the edge of the hole.

If necessary, raise the lift arms to empty the bucket.

WARNING

Load, unload and turn on flat level ground. Do not
exceed Rated Operating Capacity shown on sign
(decal) in cab. Failure to obey warnings can cause

Emptying The Bucket:

Figure 86

Keep the bucket low when moving to the area where you
want to empty the bucket.

Raise the lift arms (1) [Figure 86]. Level the bucket (2)
[Figure 86] while raising the lift arms to help prevent
material from falling off the back of the bucket.

Drive forward slowly until the bucket is over the top of the
truck box or bin.

Empty the bucket (2) [Figure 86]. If all material is near
the side of the truck or bin, use the bucket tilt to move it to
the other side.

WARNING

Never dump over an obstruction, such as a post, that
can enter the operator cab. The machine could tip
forward and cause injury or death.
