SAFE OPERATION

SAFE OPERATION

Careful operation is your best insurance against an accident. Read and understand this section carefully, before operating the machine. Every user, however experienced, should carefully read and understand this section and those of the attachments and accessories before taking the machine into operation. The owner is obliged to inform the operators of these instructions in detail. Keep this manual in the storage place. (See "Where to keep Operator's Manual" in "MAINTENANCE" section.) 1. BEFORE OPERATION 1. Know your equipment and its limitations. Read and understand this entire manual before attempting to start and operate the machine.

2. Obey the danger, warning and caution labels on the machine.

3. For your safety, a ROPS/FOPS (Roll-Over Protective Structure/Falling Objects Protective Structure) with a seat belt is installed by KUBOTA. Always use the seat belt when the machine is equipped with the ROPS/ FOPS as this combination will reduce the risk of personal injury or death, should the machine be upset. Do not modify structural members of ROPS by welding, drilling, bending, grinding or cutting, as this may weaken the structure. If any component is damaged, replace it. Do not attempt repairs. If the ROPS is loosened or removed for any reason, make sure all parts are reinstalled correctly. Tighten mounting bolts to proper torque.

4. The ROPS/FOPS structure complies with ISO 3471, ISO 3449 and OSHA regulations.

5. The seat belt must be inspected regularly and replaced if frayed or damaged.

6. Always sit in the operator's seat when starting the engine or operating the levers or controls.

7. Do not operate the machine while under the influence of alcohol, medication, controlled substances or while fatigued.

8. Check the surrounding area carefully before using the machine or when attachments are being connected. To avoid any danger of electrocution, never operate the machine near power lines before confirming the power is off and all local and national safety regulations. Never approach a machine or load that is contacting a power source such as power lines. Electrocution can occur by coming into contact with a machine that is near power lines.

9. Check for buried pipes and cables before digging.

10.Check for hidden holes, obstacles, soft underground, and overhangs. Do not enter soft ground. A During machine use, do not allow any persons within the working range.

11.Do not allow anyone to use the machine until they have been informed of the work to be performed and they have read and understood the operator's manual. 12.Do not wear baggy, torn or oversized clothing when working with the machine as such clothing can get caught in rotating parts or control elements which can cause accidents or injuries. Wear adequate safety clothing, e.g. safety helmet, safety shoes, eye protection, ear protection, working gloves, etc, as necessary and as prescribed by law or statutes. If exposed to loud noise for long hours, you may suffer from hearing difficulty or loss. To protect your ears from unpleasant, loud noise, wear ear muffs, ear plugs or other protective ear pieces, as required.

13.Do not allow passengers to ride on any part of the machine at any time. The operator must remain in the machine seat during operation. 14.Check the levers, pedals and mechanical parts for correct adjustments and wear. Replace worn or damaged parts immediately. Check the nuts and bolts regularly for correct torque. 15.Keep your machine clean. Heavy soiling, grease, dust and grass can cause fires, accidents or injuries. 16.Before starting the machine, be absolutely sure that the machine has been filled with fuel, lubricated, greased and undergone all necessary maintenance. 17.Do not modify the machine, otherwise it could lead to unforeseen safety problems. 18.Make sure attachments, particularly those utilizing quick-hitch, are securely mounted. Use only KUBOTA authorized attachments.

2. OPERATING THE MACHINE 1. Mount and dismount the machine safely. Always face the machine. Always use handrails and available steps at least three points and keep yourself well balanced. Do not grab or hold any of the control levers, pedals or switches. Do not jump on or off the machine, whether stationary or in motion.

2. Before starting the job, run the machine for all movements in a large space and make sure the machine functions well in every action.

3. Start and control the machine only from the operator's seat. The operator should not lean out of his/her seat when the engine is running.

4. Before starting the engine, make sure that the armrests are in the "Raised" position and the control levers are in their neutral position and the seat belt is fastened correctly.

5. Always thoroughly check the surrounding area for any possible conditions that could create a dangerous situation. A Make sure you read the operator's manual to thoroughly understand the operating conditions and limitations of the machine. A To avoid damage and to prevent accidents, always use the buddy system and have the other person, check for clearances and other possible dangers that may be obstructed from view. A Never allow people to approach the vicinity of the turning radius of the machine. A Be cognizant of blind spots to the rear and always check behind you before backing up. 6. Only operate the machine in well-ventilated area to avoid poisoning from carbon monoxide, an odorless, colorless gas that is deadly.

SAFE OPERATION

7. Never remove any of the safety features on the machine. A Make sure all safety features, including guards, protective devices, doors and cabin, are functioning normally, properly secured and in good condition. Repair and replace any lost or damaged protective features. A Carefully read the operator's manual in order to understand the proper use of safety features such as armrest, seat belt, and other equipment. Make sure you use them properly. A Make sure all safety features are in good operating condition and remove only when repair is needed. 8. To avoid injury, always keep hands and body inside the ROPS/FOPS (protective structures) whenever operating the machine. Never try to operate machine using control levers from outside the operator's cabin while the machine is running.

9. Always keep the heavy end of the machine up when traveling up or down an incline to avoid any possibility of machine rolling over.

10.Place the bucket at a distance of 20 to 30 cm (8 to 12 in.) from the ground when moving up or down an incline. Be prepared to lower the bucket to the ground in case of emergency. 11.To avoid injury or accidents, always operate the machine or the equipment at slow speed when going up or down an incline by reducing the engine speed (rpm). Place the stroke of the left control lever at half speed or less when going down an incline. Traveling too fast down an incline can cause the operator to lose control of the machine. When going up or down an incline, keep the travel speed switch low speed position. 12.Avoid stopping suddenly on an incline, which can cause the machine to become unstable and rollover. 13.Never cross an incline horizontally or at an angle, which can cause the machine to rollover. Approach inclines vertically to avoid loss of control. 14.Take care when moving the machine on slippery or unstable surfaces such as grass, fallen leaves, metal plates, or ice, as it may skid out of control. Do not allow the machine to be oriented diagonally to such surfaces. 15.Watch where you are going at all times. Watch for and avoid obstacles. Remain alert for trees, wires and other obstructions. 16.Avoid any sudden movements while moving and operating the machine such as stopping, starting or turning. Do not raise armrests while the machine is in motion as this will cause the parking brake to engage and could cause an accident or injury. 17.Avoid driving the machine over any obstacles, which could cause loss of control. If an obstacle cannot be avoided, always place the bucket close to the ground and move slowly over the obstacle. Do not approach an obstacle at an angle, which could cause the machine to rollover. 18.Avoid performing any work with the machine when it is on an incline, which could cause it to become unbalanced and rollover. Always take care when moving the machine on an incline. Always make sure the heavy end of the machine is facing up the incline when moving it up or down the incline.

19.Always use caution when floating the lift arms. A Always make sure the bucket is lowered to the ground before floating the lift arms. Floating the lift arms when the bucket is raised could cause an accident or injury from the bucket falling. A Never move forward when the lift arms are in the "float" position. 20.Never dig or shovel at high speed, which could cause the operator to be thrown from the operator's cabin or cause injury from hitting something when the machine stops suddenly. Always operate the machine at low speed, carefully checking the area in front of the load you will be moving. 21.Never operate the machine with the bucket raised over the heads of people. Accident or injury may occur from objects falling from the bucket or the bucket itself falling. 22.Beware of material falling from the bucket. Unstable material in the bucket such as round, cylindrical, or stacked items could fall from the bucket, causing injury. Always move an unstable load with the bucket lowered. 23.Any sudden movements of the machine such as lowering or stopping of the attachment may cause it to recoil and rollover. Pay particular attention when the bucket is loaded. 24.Never exceed the maximum loading capability of the bucket or put loads off-center of the bucket, which can cause the machine to become unstable and rollover.

25.Never attempt to undercut a high embankment. Always carefully check the area for conditions that could cause the ground to cave-in. A Never operate in areas where there is a possibility of falling rock. A Never attempt to operate or drive the machine on unstable surfaces such as cliffs, shoulder of roads, deep trenches, etc. The machine could lose stability from unstable ground or vibration underneath, caus­ing it to rollover or fall. (1) Ground surfaces are especially unstable after heavy rain or explosions.

(2) Embankments and trenches may cause instabil­ity of the ground around the area.

26.Always operate the machine a safe, low speed, especially in congested or closed in areas where there is a danger of hitting or running into something. Pay close attention to obstructions 27.Pay particular attention when passing through tunnels or moving the machine near high walls to avoid hitting it and causing accident or injury. Always check height and width dimensions of the machine against tunnels or any other narrow spaces through which the machine is to be moved in order to avoid accident or injury from hitting an obstruction. 28.The machine is NOT designed for operation with hanging loads and has no safety features for such circumstances. Never operate in conjunction with a crane or other such device, which could cause serious injury. C Safety for children Tragedy can occur if the operator is not alert to the presence of children. Children generally are attracted to machines and the work they do. 1. Never assume that children will remain where you last saw them.

2. Keep children out of the work area and under the watchful eye of another responsible adult.

3. Be alert and shut your machine down if children enter the work area.

4. Never carry children on your machine. There is not a safe place for them to ride. They may fall off and be run over or interfere with your control of the machine.

5. Never allow children to operate the machine even under adult supervision.

6. Never allow children to play on the machine or on the attachments.

7. Use extra caution when backing up. Look behind and down to make sure the area is clear before moving.

3. AFTER OPERATION Before leaving the machine: A Park the machine on a firm, flat and level surface. If this is not possible, block the machine securely to prevent movement. A Lower the attachments to the ground. A Stop the engine. A Remove the key.

SAFE OPERATION

4. SAFE LOADING AND TRANSPORT OF THE MACHINE 1. Observe all regulations concerning the transport of the machine on public roads.

2. Use adequately long and robust ramps when loading the machine. Block the ramps and transport appropriately. If towing is required, use proper tow lines and attachment points. (for details, see "TRANSPORTING THE MACHINE" section)

3. To avoid tipping over, the heaviest end of the unit should proceed up the ramps first, do not change the running direction and do not swing the attachment crosswise to the loading ramps.

4. Lower the attachment on the loading bed and release the pressure from the hydraulic system. After loading the machine on the truck, secure the tracks with blocks and tie down the machine at the appropriate locations.

5. Avoid abrupt braking of the vehicle with the machine loaded. Sudden braking could cause the machine to move and could cause a serious accident.

5. MAINTENANCE Before doing maintenance work on the machine, place the machine on a firm, flat and level surface, lower the lift arms slowly to the ground, stop the engine, remove the key. When dismantling hydraulic parts, make sure that the hydraulic oil has cooled down sufficiently to avoid burns. Start maintenance work carefully, e.g. loosen the plug slowly so that oil will not squirt out. 1. Before working on the engine, the exhaust system, the radiator and the hydraulic system, let the machine cool down sufficiently.

2. Turn off the engine at all times when filling with fuel. Avoid spilling and over-filling of fuel.

3. Smoking is prohibited while refueling or handling the battery. Keep sparks and fire away from the fuel tank and battery. Flammable gases escape from the battery, especially during charging.

4. Read and follow the directions "STARTING WITH AN AUXILIARY BATTERY" in "OPERATION OF THE ENGINE" section, when starting with an auxiliary battery.

5. Keep a first-aid box and extinguisher at hand at all times.

6. Do not open the radiator cap before the radiator has cooled down sufficiently. First loosen the cap to the first stop and allow the system enough time to release the remaining pressure. Then loosen the cap completely.

7. To avoid short-circuiting the battery, always remove the ground cable first and attach the positive cable first.

8. Oil under high pressure can penetrate the skin and may be harmful to your health if not treated immediately.

9. Leaking hydraulic fluid has enough pressure to penetrate the skin and cause serious injuries. Leakages from pinholes can be totally invisible. Do not use hands for checking for leaks. Always use a piece of wood or cardboard. It is strongly recommended to use a face mask or eye protection. Should injuries occur with leaking hydraulic fluid, contact a doctor immediately. This fluid can cause gangrene or serious allergic reactions. Never repair the hydraulic and air-conditioner hoses until the pressure has been relieved.

10.To avoid environmental damage from acid and heavy metals, dispose of the battery appropriately. 11.Observe all laws and regulations concerning the disposal of used oil, coolants, solvents, hydraulic fluids, battery acids and batteries. 12.To avoid fire, do not heat the hydraulic components (tanks, pipes, hoses, cylinders) before they have been drained and washed. 13.Use a face mask or eye protection to protect the eyes and respiratory system against dust and other foreign particles.

15.Do not dismantle the spring of the track tensioner. If dismantling is necessary, contact your KUBOTA dealer where the machine was purchased, or competent service shop. The assembly must be done according to the KUBOTA workshop manual (W.S.M.) for the product involved. 16.Always attach a "DO NOT OPERATE" tag whenever performing any kind of maintenance or repair. 17.Make sure you have the proper tools on hand.

22.Always make sure the engine is stopped before performing any maintenance or repairs. A Do not attempt to lubricate or make mechanical adjustments while the machine is in motion or while the engine is running even if stationary. A If you must perform some maintenance procedures when the engine is running, make certain one other person is assisting by sitting in the operator's cabin while the work is being performed elsewhere on the machine. Always keep body clear of any moving parts and remove any loose clothing when working near moving parts to prevent possible injury. A Always stay clear of moving parts. Clothing, hands or other parts of the body can become caught in moving parts of the machine and cause personal injury or death. A Make sure to avoid any rotating fans, V-belt and other such moving parts. Never insert tools, fingers, hands, etc. while these parts are running.

23.Be sure to place blocks around the machine and place protection where components could fall. A Always make sure the bucket is at the lowest possible position or on the ground before performing any maintenance or repairs under the machine. A Make sure the tracks are securely blocked off. A Whenever performing maintenance or repairs when the lift arms are raised, always use the lift arm stopper. A Never do any work under a machine or work on it while it is hoisted on jack-stands or other rigid support devices unless they are well secured and stable. 24.Make sure the raised lift arms are properly and securely blocked. A Make sure the lift arm stopper is properly engaged before performing any work beneath raised lift arms. Never attempt to do any work or move under the lift arms when they are not properly supported. A Keep in mind that the lift arms may fall whenever hydraulic lines are disconnected, loosened, or removed. Any malfunction or failure in the hydraulics can also cause lift arms to drop. A Always perform the necessary repairs or service whenever the lift arm stopper becomes damaged or malfunctioned, or part(s) are missing. Damaged or malfunctioning lift arm stopper may cause the lift arms to fall causing personal injury or death.

25.Always secure the rear door after opening it. Avoid opening the rear door when the machine is on an incline or in strong winds. 26.Precaution on tilting the cabin. A Do not raise or lower the cabin while the engine is running as it may move, cause the machine to become unstable, resulting in personal injury or death. Always lower the working parts of the machine to the ground and stop the engine before attempting to raise or lower the cabin. A Make sure the cabin is properly and securely supported with a stopper when tilted to prevent if from falling and causing personal injury.

27.Use care when refueling. A Never smoke cigarettes or permit the use of fire while refueling or in the vicinity of refueling. A Always make sure the engine is off and cool before removing the fuel cap to refuel the tank. Avoid getting fuel on any hot components. A Keep control of the fuel filler nozzle while refueling. A Never overfill the tank with fuel. Leave room for thermal expansion. A Always remove any excess or spilled fuel immediately. A Always make sure the fuel tank cap is securely reinstalled. Replace the cap only with a manufacturer approved cap whenever it becomes damaged. Use of the wrong type of cap may not allow for proper venting, causing pressure in the tank to build up. A Never use fuel to clean the machine. A Always use the correct type of fuel for the machine and the temperature in which it is being operated.

28.Hoses A Leakage in any fuel, oil or hydraulic line can cause fire or explosion. A Avoid any twisting, bending or hitting of hoses that could cause damage to the line. A Make sure any loose connections are secure properly before using the machine. 29.Fire prevention Compact Track Loader and some attachments have components that are at high temperatures under normal operating conditions. The primary source of high temperatures is the engine and exhaust system. The electrical system, if damaged or incorrectly maintained, can be a source of arcing or sparks. The following fire prevention guidelines will help to keep your equipment up and running efficiently and keep the risk of fire to a minimum. A Blow off all accumulated debris near hot engine exhaust components such as turbocharger and exhaust manifold as well as exhaust pipes and muffler more frequently when working in severe conditions. A Clean out all accumulated flammable debris such as leaves, straw, pine needles, branches, bark, small wood chips and any other combustible materials from inside the machine belly pans or lower unit structures as well as from area in proximity to the engine. A Inspect all fuel lines and hydraulic hoses for wear or for deterioration. Replace them immediately if they begin to leak. A Examine electrical wiring and connectors frequently for damage. Repair any wires that are loose or frayed before operating the machine. Clean all electrical connections and tighten all electrical connections as necessary. A Inspect the exhaust system daily for any signs of leakage. Check for broken pipes and muffler and also for loose or missing bolts, nuts and clamps. If any exhaust leaks or fractured parts are found, repairs must be completed prior to operation. A Always keep a multipurpose fire extinguisher on or near the machine. Be familiar with the operation of the fire extinguisher. SAFE OPERATION

30.Take care when working around hot and pressurized components. A Always allow the engine to cool sufficiently before performing any maintenance, inspection or repairs. A Never touch any parts such as the engine, muffler, radiator, hydraulic lines, sliding parts, etc. as they may be very hot immediately after the machine has been running and can cause burning. Allow these parts to cool sufficiently before touching. A Always use sufficient care whenever removing the caps and plugs on the coolant, oil and hydraulic fluid as they are hot and pressurized and can causing burning and injury from spraying of hot fluid.

31.Make certain pressure from all of these systems is sufficiently released before performing any maintenance or repairs. Oil or other fluids could be released when caps or filters are removed before the pressure has been stabilized in the hydraulic system. A Gradually release internal pressure build-up by standing out of the line of any possible spray and slowly removing plugs, screws or disconnect hoses. 32.Always use care whenever handling grease that is pressurized. A Always follow the proper procedure to adjust tension. Grease in the track adjuster is pressurized and improper release can cause the discharge valve to fly off, causing personal injury or death. A Always loosen the discharge valve for the grease slowly. A Avoid standing in front of, or putting any parts of the body in the line of the grease discharge valve. A If no grease is released when discharge valve is loosened, the machine has a malfunction. DO NOT attempt to make any repairs yourself and contact the nearest dealer for repairs. Any operation of the machine under these conditions can be very dangerous.

33.Always carefully check the machine after performing any maintenance or repairs. Confirm that no oil, water, etc., is leaking from any parts that had been serviced by carefully inspecting the parts. Gradually speed up the engine from a low speed to higher speed to check operation.

34.Waste material A Always make sure any material and waste products from the repair and maintenance of the machine are collected into proper containers using a funnel, or other device. Dispose of waste material properly to avoid pollution and contamination of the environment. A Consult local regulations and codes when disposing of oil, fuel, engine coolant, refrigerant, solvents, filters, batteries, and any other potentially harmful and hazardous material or substance.

35.To avoid the possibility of battery explosion, do not use or charge the refillable type battery if the fluid level is below the LOWER (lower limit level) mark. Check the fluid level regularly and add distilled water as required so that the fluid level is between the UPPER and LOWER levels. 36.To avoid sparks from an accidental short circuit, always disconnect the battery's ground cable (-) first and reconnect it last 37.Do not open high-pressure fuel system. High-pressure fluid remaining in fuel lines can cause serious injury. Do not disconnect nor attempt to repair fuel lines, sensors, or any other components between the high-pressure fuel pump and injectors on engines with high-pressure common rail fuel system. 38.To avoid hazardous high voltage, turn the key switch to the OFF position if it is necessary to check to repair the computer, harness or connectors. 39.When the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) is in the regenerating cycle, the exhaust gas and the DPF muffler become hot. During regeneration, take into account that the muffler will be very hot and keep the machine away from other people, animals, plants, and flammable material. Also keep the area near the DPF muffler clean and away from flammable material. 40.The DPF-regeneration-caused exhaust gas may adversely affect people, animals and plants. Before this action, look around the machine for added safety.

6. HANDLING DIESEL EXHAUST FLUID (HEREINAFTER CALLED DEF)

A DEF is a transparent, colorless and non-toxic deionized water solution. Depending on situations, it may smell, but it is not unusual. A There is no problem even if DEF touches part of your body. Too sensitive skin, however, might get irritated. If contacted with the fluid, take the following actions. D If the solution gets on your skin, wash it off with water. If your skin is too sensitive, you may feel it irritated. D If your clothes or shoes get splashed with the solution, wash them out before reuse. D Do not drink the solution. D If you have accidentally swallowed the solution, drink one or two glasses of water or milk and immediately see a doctor. D If the solution gets into your eye(s), immediately wash it (them) with a large quantity of water for 15 minutes or longer and see a doctor. A DEF itself is nonflammable. If it gets heated due to a fire or the like, an irritating odor may be generated. If by any chance a fire breaks out, immediately evacuate yourself to a safe place.

CHECKING THE LAMPS AND INDICATORS BFuel Gauge Indicator

To avoid personal injury or death: A Before adding fuel, be sure to stop the engine. A Be sure to keep open flame away from the

machine. Otherwise a fire may result. With the starter key at the "RUN" position, the fuel remaining in the fuel tank is indicated in the indicator.

If the fuel runs short, open the cap and refuel the tank.

(1) Cap

A If the fuel gauge indicator is near the "E", add fuel as soon as possible. If the indicator is near "E" and the machine runs on a slope, the engine may run out of fuel and get interrupted. A Be very attentive to the remaining fuel for the engine not to stall. If the engine stalls, it may fail to get restarted for a while to protect the emission purifying device.

A To open the fuel cap, keep the starter key inserted. BRemaining Fuel Warning Lamp If the fuel in the tank goes below the prescribed level, the warning lamp will flash. If this should happen during operation, refuel as soon as possible.

BCoolant Temperature Gauge

To avoid personal injury or death: A Do not open the radiator cap during or just after operation. Hot water may gush out and scald you. Wait for the water to cool down before opening the cap. With the starter key at the "RUN" position, the coolant temperature is indicated.

If engine coolant rises above a specified temperature level, the indicator starts blinking and the buzzer starts beeping every 6 minutes for advance warning. If the coolant temperature further rises to the critical level, the blinking intervals become shorter and the buzzer keeps on beeping. When the coolant temperature has dropped below specified temperature level or the starter key has been moved to the "STOP" position, the warning will cease. If the coolant temperature gauge is near "H", take the steps below. 1. Discontinue the job.

2. Reduce engine rpm's to idle and keep it at idle for 5 minutes.

3. Stop the engine and check the following points (1)-(4).

(1) Low coolant level or leak

(2) V-belt tension

(3) Mud, dust or chaff deposits blocking the radiator or screen

(4) Hydraulic oil leak

A If the emission alarm (E: 9114 or 9115) is displayed, the EGR valve will begin to close and EGR system will not function. Interrupt the work and lower the engine rpm, which will reduce the coolant temperature. BParking Lamp When the parking brake switch is turned on, the parking lamp on the instrument panel turns on. (See page 8.)

BFloating Lamp While in the float mode, the " " mark on the instrument panel stays on.

BWarning Lamp The warning lamp is used to indicate broken wire, short-circuit and other problems. The lamp lights up to warn you of a detection of broken or short-circuited hydraulic lock/unlock solenoid, AUX port variable switch and other elements.

A If the warning lamp lights up, consult your local KUBOTA dealer immediately.

BGlow Lamp The glow lamp is displayed when the starter key is turned to the "RUN" position but the engine requires preheating. Wait until the indicator goes out, and then start the engine.

BEngine Oil Pressure Warning Lamp The engine oil pressure warning lamp lights up due to failure of the lubricating system with the engine running. When the starter key is turned in "RUN" position with the engine off, this lamp lights up and when the engine starts, the lamp goes out. If the lamp stays on with the engine running, stop the engine and check the engine oil level.

BBattery Charge Lamp This battery charge lamp lights up if the charging system fails when the engine is running. When the starter key is turned in "RUN" position with the engine off, the lamp lights up and when the engine starts, the lamp goes out. If the lamp stays on with the engine running, stop the engine and check the V-belt.

BHydraulic Oil Temperature Gauge The lamp starts blinking and the buzzer starts beeping if the hydraulic oil temperature has reached a specified level. When the oil temperature has dropped below the specified level or the starter key is turned off, the warning will cease. Stop the engine and check to see if the level in the hydraulic oil tank is below the minimum mark and for a hydraulic leak.

BHour-Meter Indicates the total operating hours of the machine. How the indicator works A The meter advances one hour after an hour of operation regardless of the engine rpm.

BDiesel Particulate Filter (DPF) regeneration indicator As PM (Particulate Matter) builds up inside the DPF, the DPF regeneration cycle starts automatically to burn away PM. During DPF regeneration, this lamp lights up and stays on and the beep tone keeps sounding to warn the operator.

BEngine rev up warning lamp If the engine rpm is too low to start regeneration, the DPF regeneration indicator lights up and starts blinking. In such case, rev up the engine until this lamp goes out, the regeneration will automatically start.

EXAUST AFTERTREATMENT DEVICES BCatalyst-containing Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) device This after-treatment device has two functions: reducing certain emissions, like hydrocarbon (HC) and carbon monoxide (CO), to innoxious carbon dioxide and water, and trapping and elimination PM (Particulate Matter) through the filter at the same time. Following EPA regulations, it is necessary to service the DPF, such as renewing or cleaning the filter at regular intervals. Be sure to carefully read this Operator’s Manual before using the machine. The machine owner and operator are responsible for handling this device correctly to protect the environment, to prevent damage to the DPF, and to comply with Federal and state regulations. See the Kubota Limited Emissions Warranty for warranty diagnostic and repair parameters for all emissions related parts. C Handling instructions A Fuel Be sure to use ULTRA LOW SULFUR FUEL (S15). Use of other diesel fuel other than this may adversely affect the engine and the emission control device and may damage them.

A Engine oil Use DPF-compatible engine oil (CJ-4). Any unspecified oil may damage the DPF earlier than expected and lower fuel economy.

A If you use different fuel or engine oil, the cleaning interval of the DPF (3000 hours) can’t be ensured and the DPF will be clogged in a shorter time than expected. C Prohibited unnecessary idling Generally speaking, the lower the engine rpm is, the lower the exhaust gas temperature is. It is more difficult to burn PM (Particulate Matter) in the DPF. With this in mind, do not keep the engine idling unnecessarily. If you leave the machine with the engine running, to protect the DPF the engine can stop automatically. C DPF regeneration system On the Kubota CTL, the ECU prompts DPF-regeneration cycle. When starting the engine, Auto Regeneration Mode is set by default. When all the conditions are met, regeneration automatically starts, unless the inhibit switch is engaged. BRegeneration of Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF)

To avoid personal injury or death: A When the DPF is in the regenerating mode, the exhaust gas and the DPF muffler become hot. During the regeneration, take into account that the muffler will be very hot and keep the machine away from other people, animals, plants, and flammable material. Also keep the area near the DPF muffler clean and away from flammable material. A Do not leave the machine during DPF regeneration. The DPF level of PM during operation is indicated by indicator symbol and buzzer.

A During DPF regeneration cycle keep clear of the surrounding environment in mind. Do not allow the ambient temperature to rise excessively due to heat from the regeneration. If such occurs, activate the inhibit switch. A The DPF regeneration cycle only starts in the following conditions. If any of the conditions are not met, the DPF regeneration cycle may be interrupted. (1) Coolant temperature above 65 C

(2) DPF temperature above 250 C

(3) Engine rpm above 1200 rpm

A The regeneration usually takes about 15-20 minutes. It depends, however, on the outside air temperature, exhaust gas temperature and filter PM level. A Do not attempt to interrupt the DPF regeneration cycle unnecessarily. SCR (SELECTIVE CATALYTIC REDUCTION) SYSTEM

To avoid personal injury or death: A Do not tamper with or modify the exhaust system pipes or components and their locations from the original factory configuration. Unauthorized modifications will result in increased exhaust emissions and non­compliance with related emission regulations. A Do not allow the fluid that comes out of the muffler to contact skin. Wash or flush immediately with large quantities of water after contact with fluid. The SCR system is designed to purify nitrogen oxides (NOx) contained in the exhaust gas. DEF, used as a reducing agent, hydrolyzes the exhaust gas because of the heat of exhaust gas, which generates ammonia (NH3). The resulting ammonia then reduces the nitrogen oxides (NOx) to nitrogen and water for purification purpose. Thanks to the exhaust gas purification function, the smell of exhaust gas from the SCR muffler is different from that of the gas coming out of conventional diesel engines. BDEF

To avoid personal injury: A The urea aqueous solution (DEF) is colorless, odorless and harmless. If the solution gets on your skin, immediately wash it away with water. The DEF, used as reducing agent of SCR, is a 32.5% urea aqueous solution. No qualification for handling the urea aqueous solution is needed. As well, the solution is not designated as a hazardous material. The product is available at gas stations, truck stops and specialty shops. Be sure to use the genuine product only. Do not use any poor-quality products, or the engine may have trouble and be damaged.

A On the North American market, the high-grade NOx reducing agent called urea aqueous solution is sold in the name of DEF (Diesel Exhaust Fluid). On the European and Japanese markets, it is on sale under the trade name of AdBlue®. BDEF Level Gauge With the starter key at the "RUN" position, the DEF remaining in the DEF tank is indicated in the indicator.

If the DEF runs short, open the cap and refill the DEF tank.

A If the DEF level gauge is near the "E", add DEF as soon as possible. If the indicator is near "E" and the machine runs on a slope, remaining DEF warning lamp lights up.

A To open the DEF cap, keep the starter key inserted. BRemaining DEF Warning Lamp If the DEF in the tank goes below the prescribed level, the warning lamp will turn on. If this should happen during operation, refill DEF as soon as possible.

BSCR System Warning Lamp This lamp serves to indicate that the SCR system is having troubles. If this lamp lights up, check the error code onscreen and follow the instructions given in the "TROUBLESHOOTING" section.

BDEF Quality Warning Lamp This lamp serves to indicate that the quality of DEF is not as specified.If this lamp lights up, check the error code onscreen and follow the instructions given in the "TROUBLESHOOTING" section.

BThawing DEF Lamp This lamp serves to indicate that frozen DEF is being thawed. While this lamp stays on, the power output may be limited to protect the SCR system. However, the machine can still be operated as usual.
