From The Fuel System on Page 66.)

WARNING

Always clean up spilled fuel or oil. Keep heat, flames,
sparks or lighted tobacco away from fuel and oil.
Failure to use care around combustibles can cause
explosion or fire which can result in injury or death.

W-2103-1285

Removing Air From The Fuel System

After replacing the filter element or when the fuel tank
has run out of fuel, the air must be removed from the fuel
system before starting the engine.

WARNING

Diesel fuel or hydraulic fluid under pressure can
penetrate skin or eyes, causing serious injury or
death. Fluid leaks under pressure may not be visible.
Use a piece of cardboard or wood to find leaks. Do
not use your bare hand. Wear safety goggles. If fluid
enters skin or eyes, get immediate medical attention
from a physician familiar with this injury.

ENGINE COOLING SYSTEM

Cleaning The Cooling System

WARNING

Wear safety glasses to prevent eye injury when any
of the following conditions exist:

When fluids are under pressure.

Flying debris or loose material is present.

Engine is running.

Tools are being used.

W-2019-1285

Check the cooling system every day to prevent
over-heating, loss of performance or engine damage.

Remove the rear grill. (See REAR GRILL on Page 63.)

Figure 135

Use low air pressure or water pressure to clean the top of
the oil cooler (1) [Figure 135].

Raise the oil cooler and use low air pressure or water
pressure to clean the top of the radiator (2[Figure 135].

Lower the oil cooler.

Check the cooling system for leaks.

Install the rear grill. (See REAR GRILL on Page 63.)

Checking Coolant Level And Adding Coolant

Open the rear door.

NOTE: The machine uses a pressurized coolant

recovery system.

Figure 136

Check the coolant level on the side of the recovery
tank (1)  [Figure 136]. The level must be between the
MIN and MAX marks.

Remove the cover (2) [Figure 136] from the coolant
recovery tank.

Add premixed coolant to the recovery tank and install the
cover.

IMPORTANT

AVOID ENGINE DAMAGE

Always use the correct ratio of water to antifreeze.

To much antifreeze reduces cooling system
efficiency and may cause serious premature engine
damage.

Too little antifreeze reduces the additives which
protect the internal engine components; reduces the
boiling point and freeze protection of the system.

Always add a premixed solution. Adding full strength
concentrated coolant can cause serious premature
engine damage.
