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. Do not use defective or damaged tools, gauges, or other devices. Always use tools that are appropriate for the task to be done. 18.To prevent personal injury or death, be sure to use explosion-proof lighting when working on, inspecting or handling fuel, oil, coolant, battery fluid, etc. If the explosion-proof lighting is not used and should break, it can ignite and cause fire, injury or death. 19.Prohibit unauthorized persons from entering the work area to prevent injury caused by debris flying off of machine parts during grinding, welding, using a hammer or other such tasks. 20.Make sure work area is clear and safe. Be sure to work on a firm, level surface with adequate lighting. Work in well-ventilated area if indoors. Make sure the area is free from any potentially dangerous conditions such as obstacles, slippery surfaces, etc. 21.Be sure the machine is clean and free of debris. A Always remove debris from the machine and clean it before performing any maintenance or repair work. A Before using water to wash or clean the machine, stop engine and make sure all electrical parts and devices are covered. Any water seepage into electrical wiring on the machine can cause a short circuit or malfunction of controls. Never wash the battery, sensors, connectors or operator's cabin with water or steam.

14.Securely support the machine with stands or suitable blocking before working underneath. For your safety, do not work under any hydraulically supported devices. They can settle, suddenly leak down, or be accidentally lowered. SAFE OPERATION

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.

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.

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.

OPERATION OF THE ENGINE

A To avoid the danger of exhaust fume poisoning, do not operate the machine in a closed building without proper ventilation. A Always start the engine from the operator's seat. Do not start the engine while standing next to the machine. Before starting the engine, sound the horn to get the attention of persons standing nearby.

A Do not use starting fluid or ether. A In order not to overload the battery and starter, avoid start-ups of more than 10 sec. A When engine does not start in 10 sec., please wait 20 sec. or more, before attempting to restart.

To avoid personal injury or death: A The operator should not depend solely on the warning lamps, but should always conduct the routine checks section (see "MAINTENANCE" section). Start the engine in the following manner: 1. 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.

2. Set the engine speed control dial to 1/2 position and keep the accelerator pedal free.

(1) Engine speed control dial

(2) Accelerator pedal

3. Insert the key into the starter switch and turn it to the "RUN" position. The glow lamp will light up while the engine is preheated and will go out automatically after preheating is finished.

4. Make sure the " " and " " marks appear on the instrument panel. If not, the system is malfunctioned. Contact your local dealer.

5. Turn the key to the "START" position and release after the engine has started.

6. Check if all warning lamps (except hydraulic lock lamp and parking brake lamp) have gone out. Should a warning lamp still be lit up, stop the engine then remove the key and check for the cause.

A The starter motor consumes large current. Avoid running it longer than 10 seconds continuously. If the engine fails to start within 10 seconds, once set the key to the "STOP" position, wait for 20 seconds or longer, and repeat the above step 3 through 6. A If the battery is dead and must be connected to another battery with jumper cable, be sure to use a 12V battery. Never use any 24V batteries. BCheckpoints after Starting the Engine After starting the engine, but before starting operation, check the following points: 1. The engine idle allows the engine lubricant to warm up and penetrate every part of the engine.

A This idling is usually called "Warm-up". A In order to protect the engine, its rpm may fail to rise in some cases. (Up to 3 minutes)

2. Once the engine has warmed up, check: A the "Engine oil pressure warning lamp" has gone out. A the "Battery charge lamp" goes out when engine speed is increased. A the color of the exhaust is normal and no abnormal

noises or vibrations are heard or felt. A no fluid is leaking from pipes or hoses.

C Should any of the following conditions occur, stop the engine immediately. A The engine rpm's increases or decreases suddenly. A Sudden abnormal noises are heard. A Exhaust is black. A Warning lamp for engine oil lights up during operation.

A In these cases, the machine must be checked and serviced by your local the KUBOTA dealer. STARTING THE ENGINE UNDER COLD CONDITIONS

To avoid personal injury or death: A Make sure that the armrests are in the "Raised" position during warm up. Start the engine in the following manner; 1. Turn the starter switch to the "RUN" position (glow position) and hold until the indicator lamp has gone out.

2. Move the starter switch to the "START" position; to crank and start engine.

3. Release the starter switch after the engine has started; it will automatically return to the "RUN " position.

A Let the engine warm up after start-up for approx. 10 minutes under no load conditions. If the hydraulic fluid temperature is too low, the operations or the function of the pressure sensors will be affected. Do not operate the machine under full load before the engine has warmed up enough. A DEF freezes at temperatures below -11 C (12 F). Even if it is frozen, the engine is not affected at its start-up and running. STOPPING THE ENGINE

To avoid personal injury or death: A Do not keep the bucket or attachments in the raised position, as a person could accidentally touch the levers and cause serious accidents. A Place the machine on the flat ground. 1. After slowing the engine to idle, turn the key to "STOP" position.

2. Remove the key.

A When the engine is stopped-shutdown, DEF flow is reversed in the DEF lines and related piping and returned back into the DEF tank after cooling the DEF injector. The SCR system continues working several minutes after engine shutdown to complete this purge process. A Do not turn the machine main battery power off to the engine until the DEF return cycle purge process is completed. Turning off the main battery power to the engine and aftertreatment system prior to completion may damage the system or cause it to malfunction. STARTING WITH AN AUXILIARY BATTERY

To avoid personal injury or death: A Battery gases can explode. Do not smoke and keep sparks and flames away. A Do not start the engine with an auxiliary battery if machine battery is frozen. A Do not connect the black jumper cable to the negative (-) terminal of the machine battery. BObserve Following Guidelines when Starting with an Auxiliary Battery 1. Bring the helping machine with the same battery voltage as near as possible to the machine. THE MACHINES MUST NOT COME IN CONTACT WITH EACH OTHER.

2. Bring the levers and pedal of both machines in the neutral position.

3. Wear eye protection and rubber gloves.

4. Ensure the vent caps are securely in place (if equipped).

5. Connect the terminal of the red jumper cable with the plus (+) terminal of the low battery and connect the other end of the cable to the plus (+) terminal of the auxiliary battery.

6. Connect the black negative cable to the minus (-) terminal of the auxiliary battery.

7. Connect the other end of the black cable (coming from the auxiliary battery) to the conductive part of the machine frame as far away as possible from the low battery.

8. Start the engine of the helping machine and let it run for a while. Start the machine with the low battery.

9. Disconnect the jumper cables in the reverse sequence.

A This machine has a negative (-) ground 12 Volt starting system. A Only use the same voltage when using an auxiliary battery. A Using a higher voltage will cause serious damage to the electrical system. When using an auxiliary battery, only the compatible (same) voltage is permissible.

OPERATION OF THE MACHINE

RUNNING-IN OF THE MACHINE The operation and care of the new machine influences its life span. Your new machine has been carefully checked and tested before leaving the factory. In spite of this, all movable components must run-in during the first 50 work hours. Do not work with full rpm's and full loads during this period. It is most important to run-in your machine properly in order to achieve its full performance and longevity. During the running-in, the following points should be adhered to in all cases. BDo not Work with Full Engine Rpm's or Full Loads during the First 50 Working Hours A Let the engine warm up sufficiently in the cold season. A Do not let the engine rev-up more than necessary. BOil Change in the Run-in Stage The lubrication oil plays a specific and important role during the run-in phase of the machine. The numerous movable parts are not yet run-in, so many fine metal particles can be generated and may cause damage and shorten the life of many components. Pay attention to the oil-change intervals and complete them sooner than later. See "REGULAR CHECKS AND MAINTENANCE WORK" section for more details on the oil-change intervals.

A Mount the machine and dismount the machine only at locations that have steps and/or handholds. Before you mount the machine, clean the steps and the handholds. A Start the only from the operator's seat. Never short across the starter terminals or across the batteries. Shorting could damage the electrical system by bypassing the engine neutral start system. A Inspect the condition of the seat belt and the mounting hardware. Replace any parts that are worn or damaged. Do not use a seat belt extension on a retractable seat belt. A Adjust the seat so that full pedal travel can be achieved with the operator's body against back of the seat. A Make sure the machine is equipped with a lighting system that is adequate for the job conditions. Make sure all machine lights are working properly. A Before you start the engine and before you move the machine, make sure that no one is underneath, or on, or close to the machine. BAdjusting the Operator's Seat

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON MACHINE OPERATION A Do not operate machine on loose rock or gravel (hard or soft). A Avoid moving machine when lift arms and bucket are in the raised position. If you must move the machine when they are raised, take care to travel at low speeds in order to maintain control of the machine at all times. A Always avoid working on an incline as the machine can become unstable and rollover, causing serious injury or death. A Whenever the machine is in motion, keep the bucket as close to the ground as possible. Never change directions when the bucket is in the raised position. A Always move the machine at speeds that are appropriate to the conditions. Take particular care if you are ever moving through areas where view may be obstructed or when transporting hazardous material. A Never operate the machine in the vicinity of explosive gases. Always keep exhaust from machine away from any combustible material. A Never turn or spin the machine at high speed. A Never approach an incline horizontally, which can cause the track to slide off and cause excessive wearing of tracks. A Never exceed the operating capacity of the machine. A Never use the machine to move material or perform work that exceeds the capacity of the bucket or attachments. A Never use the bucket as a hammer to drive poles or studs into the ground. A Never attempt to dig too deeply with the bucket, which can damage the bucket or lift arms. A Avoid hitting the bucket against rocks or similar solid material, which will damage the bucket or bucket cylinder. A Never fully extend cylinders to perform an operation. Working while cylinders are fully extended can cause damage from excessive force. A Never scoop or grade areas while the tilt cylinders are fully extended Extremely heavy loads apply excessive traction force to the bucket cylinders and can cause damage. Avoid loads that are too heavy. BCaution While Traveling A Running over large debris (rocks, stumps, blocks, etc.) may cause such debris to fly up and damage the machine. Avoid such debris whenever possible. A If obstacles cannot be avoided, travel slowly over them with the bucket in the lowered position. Approach the obstacles so it is at the center of the tracks. BPrecaution When Traveling in High Speed A Whenever traveling over uneven ground surfaces, travel at low speed. Avoid any sudden movements with the machine such as accelerating, stopping, or turning quickly. BPrecautions for Use of Machine Near Water A Whenever working near water, pay particular attention not to submerge any part of the machine especially the rear where the radiator fan could be exposed to water, damaging the parts. Always take care to keep working machine parts out of water, especially when coming out of a shoreline, for example, at a sharp angle.

A If parts that require lubrication are exposed to water for long periods of time, make sure they are re-lubricated with grease to remove old grease. A After working in the mud and in the water, make sure that there is no invasion of the soil inside the frame. If soil is deposited, you should clean the internal frame. (See page 79, "Cleaning Inside of Main Frame".) A Never allow the main body of the machine to become submerged in water or sand. Contact your Kubota Dealer or Service Outlet if the main body of the machine is exposed to water. BPrecaution When Traveling on Inclines

To avoid personal injury or death: A Know and understand the machine capabilities and operating conditions, and never exceed any of these conditions. Keep in mind that poor or difficult working conditions may reduce the capability of the machine, requiring a reduction in speed to maintain stability. A Always lower the bucket to a height of 20 to 30 cm (8 to 12 in.) from the ground whenever traveling on an incline. Lower the bucket completely to the ground and stop the machine in case of emergency. A Always travel at low speed when moving on an incline. Reduce the engine speed (rpm) when moving down an incline and set the engine stroke to half or less using the left control lever. Traveling too fast down an incline can lead to loss of control and accident or injury. A Always make sure the heavy end of the machine is facing up the incline when traveling either direction on a hill having a gradient of 15 degrees or more. A Whenever traveling on an incline, be careful of the possibility of sliding sideways or rolling over. A Never travel down an incline in reverse. A Never approach an incline horizontally or diagonally. Always return to a flat surface and redirect the machine. A Beware of unstable and slippery surfaces such as grass, leaves, wet metal or ice. The machine can slide very easily even on low grade inclines. C Orientation of machine when traveling on an incline

A Braking is automatic with the HST system when the left control lever is in the neutral position. Raise armrests for parking brake. C What to do when engine stops suddenly A If the engine stops suddenly when moving down an incline, put control levers into neutral, stop the machine and then restart in the normal manner. BParking on an Incline A It is best to park the machine on firm, level ground using the parking brake but if you must park the machine on an incline, make sure you block it to prevent any movement. A Make sure the machine is highly visible when parking near streets by using barriers, appropriate caution signs, lights, etc. to avoid any accident or collision with other vehicles. A Always raise the armrests to the "RAISED" position and stop the engine before leaving the operator's seat. A Never leave the machine running unattended or with the lift arms raised. Whenever lift arms are raised, they MUST always be restrained using the lift arm stopper. A Whenever leaving the machine, perform the following procedure: A Put control levers into neutral. A Return the throttle lever to idle. A Lower the bucket to the ground. A Move armrest in the "RAISED" position. A Turn off the engine and remove the key. BProhibited Actions Actions that MUST NOT be performed with the machine: A Never move, transport material or operate the machine in the following places: Mud, broken stone, jagged or unstable base rock, iron beams, iron scrapes, iron sheets, etc. Navigating, turning and moving the machine over sharp material may damage or break the tracks. A Traveling on riverbeds and other areas where loose gravel can get into the tracks, causing them to slip off or become damaged. A Do not use near the oceanfront where salt water can corrode the various parts of the machine. A Always prevent fuel, oil, salt or other chemical agents from getting into the tracks, which can cause corrosion to the metal track cores. If the track and its parts are exposed to such material, immediately remove by using water. A Always avoid traveling on roads directly after they have been resurfaced or other hot surfaces such as fire or metal surfaces under direct sunlight. Excessive heat can cause irregular wear and damage to tracks. A Do not attempt to move material where the surface is unstable and could cause slippage in the tracks. Unnecessary and excessive slipping of tracks will damage and cause abnormal wearing of the tracks.

To avoid personal injury or death: A Whenever operating the machine, do the following: 1) Always avoid sudden changes in direction, or spinning on concrete surfaces. Excessive friction on the tracks will cause them to wear out or become damaged. 2) Always avoid sudden impact to the tracks such as allowing the machine to drop down or hit objects. 3) Chemical such as salt, potassium chloride, ammonium sulfate, potassium sulfate, triple-super phosphate of lime, etc., can damage the track belts. If the tracks are exposed to any of these substances, immediately wash thoroughly with water. 4) Avoid scraping the rubber tracks along concrete, and other rough surfaces. 5) Take particular care when operating, transporting material or traveling in snowy conditions or on ice as tracks may slip. 6) Operate the machine between -20 C and +50 C (-4 to 122 F) for proper functioning of rubber track belts. 7) If machine must be stored for 3 months or longer, keep it indoors, out of direct sunlight and prevent exposure to the elements to prevent wear on the rubber tracks. BPreventing Slippage of Rubber Tracks Always do the following to prevent slippage of rubber tracks: A Make sure tracks are kept at the proper tension. Never change directions when there is excessive slack in the track belts. A When ascending an incline, never change direction at the base of the incline. A Always avoid operating the machine with one track on a different surface than the other track, or with one track partially on an incline. Make sure both tracks are on stable, firm surfaces when in motion.

LIFTING THE MACHINE

To avoid serious injury or death: A The instructions for safe lifting are described here. Read these instructions carefully before lifting the machine. Make sure that the operating personnel read the operator's manual carefully before lifting.

A Select a firm level surface, lower the working equipment to the ground, stop the engine, set arm rest to locked position and apply parking brake switch so the unit cannot roll. A Do not lift loads that exceed the maximum rated capacity of the hoist and attaching hardware. A See specifications for attaching hardware and choose hardware suitable for the weight, size and configuration of the load. A Assess the center of gravity of the load, position the hook directly over the load and lift the load so that it remains horizontal. A Do not enter and do not allow others to enter the working area under the suspended load and do not move the load over people. The load must only be moved in an area where the equilibrium can be maintained. A Always inspect the attaching hardware, including chains, hooks and master links before each use. Do not use any worn or damaged attaching hardware or if the safety latch is missing. A Do not use attaching hardware, including chains, hooks and master links, in extreme temperature or other environmental conditions that exceed the manufacturer's specifications. A Load disengagement can cause severe injury or death. The use of a hook with a safety latch or other master link device does not preclude inadvertent detachment of a slack sling load from the hook or master link. Visual verification of proper hook or shackle engagement is required in all instances. A Comply with all Federal, State and Local regulations and safety standards before lifting the machine. A Do not use the holes on the roof structure to lift the machine. A Make sure the lifting chains, hooks and master links are strong enough to withstand the load being lifted. A Be sure that the hooks used have safely latch. A Before lifting, be sure attachments are properly attached.

TRANSPORTING THE MACHINE

A Make sure the ramps load capacity is greater than the machine and attachment weight. A Make sure the ramps are clean, not damaged and properly secured to the transport bed. A Position the machine so that the heaviest end of the machine is going up the ramps first. A No directional changes should be made when the machine is on the ramp. Should a change of direction be necessary, drive off the ramp completely and make the turn. A When the machine reaches the point between the ramps and the bed, move very slowly until the machine reaches the horizontal position on the bed. LOADING THE MACHINE ON A TRANSPORT VEHICLE

A When preparing to load or unload the machine, follow the below steps; 1) Use a truck and trailer with sufficient size and weight capacity to transport the machine with attachment. Use of truck or trailer with an underrated capacity can cause unpredictable handling and loss of control. Always comply with government transportation laws and regulations. 2) Apply the parking brakes on the truck, and block the drive wheels both sides as shown below. 3) Use mounting brackets to secure ramps properly to the truck or trailer. 4) Determine and use the correct length of ramps to avoid a steep angle of approach as shown below. 5) If necessary, support the rear end of the bed to prevent the truck / trailer front from rising.

6) Align the machine with the ramps before traveling on ramps and if the ramps are wet, use caution during loading. 7) Load the machine with empty bucket or no attachment installed, and with the rear of machine going up the ramp first. 8) If the bucket or attachment is installed, avoid the bucket or attachment contact with ramps during travel.

9) Once the machine is loaded, lower the bucket or attachment completely. 10)Stop the engine, remove the key and set the parking brake. 11)Block the tracks and tie down the machine using 2 tie-downs at the front and 2 tie-downs at the rear.

12)Depending on the attachment installed, the loader arms may not come in contact with rest stop; therefore it may be necessary to use the alternate front center tie-down for securement of the machine. Use two separate straps or chains as shown below and secure the attachment with a separate strap or chain. Consult your government transportation laws and regulations.

13)When installing chains or strap from machine tie-down location to truck or trailer tie-down points, maintain proper angles to provide lateral and downward securement. 14)When using alternate or standard tiedown points, be sure to also tiedown the attachment in addition to the machine.

DAILY CHECKS For your own safety and to assure the long life of your machine, a careful check should be made before each operation. BChecking Radiator and Oil Cooler

To avoid personal injury or death: A Always stop the engine and remove the key before checking the radiator and oil cooler. A Wear eye protection when cleaning with

compressed air. 1. Check if the fins and ribs are clogged. If so clean with compressed air or steam.

2. Check the rubber hoses for damage and replace if cracked or old. Check if the hose clamps are tight enough.

A Radiator and oil cooler fins and ribs must be clean in order not to overheat the engine and allow free flow of air through the cooling elements. A When cleaning the radiator and oil cooler with compressed air, the fins can be damaged. Pay attention not to damage the fins. A Pressure of compressed air must be under 205 kPa (2.1 kgf.cm , 30 psi)

BChecking Coolant Level

To avoid personal injury or death: A Place the machine on a firm, flat and level surface, lower the lift arms slowly to the ground and stop the engine. A Do not open the radiator cap right after the engine has been stopped; Serious burns can occur from contact with escaping hot coolant fluid. A Check the coolant level in the recovery tank only after the engine has cooled down. A Remove the radiator cap only if absolutely necessary. 1. Check to see that the coolant level is between the "FULL" and "LOW" marks of recovery tank.

2. When the coolant level drops due to evaporation, add water only up to the full level. In case of leakage, add anti-freeze and water in the specified mixing ratio up to the full level.

A Do not fill the recovery tank over the "FULL" marking. A Do not fill with dirty or salty water. BChecking Fuel Level To avoid personal injury or death: A Stop the engine and remove the key before fueling. A Do not smoke while fueling.

A When temperatures are above -5 (+23 ), use No.2­D diesel fuel, when temperatures are under ­5 (+23 ), use No.1-D diesel fuel. A Make sure that the fuel tank will not run empty. Air will enter the fuel system, and must be purged before restarting engine. A Be very attentive to the remaining fuel so the engine will not stall. If the engine stalls, it may fail to get restarted for a while to protect the emission purifying device. A See "PURGING OF THE FUEL SYSTEM" in "OTHER ADJUSTMENTS AND REPLACEMENTS" section. A To prevent condensation (water) accumulations in the fuel tank, fill the fuel tank full before parking overnight. 1. Turn the starter key to the "RUN" position.

2. Check the fuel level by the fuel level indicator.

3. If necessary, open the fuel tank cap with the starter key and fill the fuel. (See "Fuel Gauge Indicator" in "CHECK BEFORE START" section) Fuel tank capacity 111 L (29.3 US gal)

BChecking Engine Oil Level

To avoid personal injury or death: A Stop the engine and remove the key before checking the oil level.

A Use engine oil with the correct viscosity. (according to the outside temperature) A After stopping the engine and remove the key, wait 5 minutes, then check the oil level. (Machine must be on level ground.) A A small amount of fuel used for DPF-regeneration may get mixed with the engine oil, which can increase the oil level slightly. A Do not attempt to repeat or interrupt the regeneration process unnecessarily. Doing so can increase the small amount of fuel that gets mixed with the engine oil, thereby degrading it. A If the oil rises above the oil level gauge upper limit, it means the oil has been diluted too much, resulting in a trouble. In such case, immediately change the oil for new one. To check the oil level, draw out the dipstick, wipe it clean, replace it and draw it out again. Check to see that the oil level lies between the two notches. If the level is too low, add new oil to the prescribed level at the oil filling port.

(1) Oil filling port (A) "Required oil level range"

(2) Engine oil dipstick

BChecking DEF Level Before starting the operation, check the DEF level in the DEF tank. The remaining amount of DEF is shown on the DEF level indicator on the meter panel.

To avoid personal injury or death: A Do not breathe the vapors from the DEF tank when the cap is removed. C Replenishing the tank with DEF 1. Set the starter switch to the "OFF" position.

2. Slightly unscrew the DEF tank cap and wipe clean the cap and filler port to remove dust and mud. (The cap is colored in blue.)

3. Slowly unscrew the tank cap to fully open it.

4. Replenish the tank with DEF to its specified level.

5. Screw the tank cap to tighten it up to the DEF tank.

6. Make sure the tank cap is tight.

A Use exclusively DEF that complies with the requirements of ISO 22241-1. A Do not put any type of fluid other than DEF in the DEF tank. A If any fluid other than the specified DEF is put into the tank, the SCR system may get damaged. A If contamination such as above has occurred, inspection of the SCR system by your local dealer is necessary. Repair or overhaul as needed. A When refilling the DEF tank, never do the following or SCR system malfunction will result: A Do not dilute DEF with water. A Do not mix or add gasoline, diesel, oils or other products into the DEF. A When unscrewing the DEF tank cap, be careful not to allow mud or any debris into the DEF tank. Otherwise, the DEF filter may become clogged or the DEF quality degraded, possibly resulting in a SCR system failure. A If DEF runs short, the engine speed and loading capacity are limited. Do not keep running the engine without replenishing it with this fluid. Otherwise the engine will stay at idle. A Do not overfill DEF tank or fill while the machine is in use. DEF may leak out of the breather port and become frozen. If freeze-up occurs, sensor damage may result. A Do not stand on or place anything on the DEF tank as the tank, piping and sensor damage may result. A It is normal for the SCR system to continue to run to complete a DEF piping purge cycle process even after the starter switch has been set to the "OFF" position. When the battery or main electrical connections are disconnected for inspection, repair or long term storage, the operator should wait several minutes until the system has completed this process. A When the engine is stopped, it is normal to hear some continued related noise from the SCR system such as DEF tank, or DEF pump. This is a normal function of the DEF piping purge process. A If DEF splashes on the machine body or frame, it may result in rust. Wipe off the spilled fluid and rinse the affected spot(s). A Do not tamper with the exhaust pipe and muffler. Do not relocate the DEF tank, either. Such action may adversely affect the exhaust gas purifying performance. A When DEF stuck on the filler port has dried up, white powder may be found. This is nothing unusual. Wipe it off carefully so as not to allow it into the DEF tank.

A DEF is a transparent and colorless aqueous solution. Depending on situations, it may smell, but it is not unusual. A If DEF is added with the engine running or the starter switch at the "ON" position, the tank indicator may not read accuracy and may require more time to settle. BChecking Hydraulic Oil Level

To avoid personal injury or death: A Stop the engine and remove the key before checking the oil level.

A Before filling with hydraulic fluid, wipe away all sand and dust from around the oil port. Make sure to use an identical type of hydraulic fluid. A The machine has been filled with hydraulic fluid before delivery. See "RECOMMENDED OILS" section. (Do not mix different oils.) 1. Park the machine on a firm, flat and level surface. Lower the lift arms slowly to the ground, tilt down the attachments and stop the engine.

2. Check the oil level as to whether it lies on the center of

3. Enough oil is present if the oil level lies near the center of the gauge.

4. Should the oil level be too low, fill up with oil through the oil port before starting the engine. This step is important for the protection of the hydraulic system.

BLubrication Points

To avoid personal injury or death: A First lower all attachments on the ground then stop the engine and remove the key.

BChecking Dust Indicator There is a dust indicator on the air cleaner body. If the red signal on the dust indicator is visible, clean the element immediately. (See "Cleaning Air Cleaner Outer Element" in "EVERY 50 HOURS" in "REGULAR CHECKS AND MAINTENANCE WORK" section.) Reset the red signal by pushing a "RESET" button after cleaning.

BChecking Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Muffler

To avoid personal injury or death: A Before checking or cleaning the DPF muffler, stop the engine and wait long enough until it is cooled down. Check to see if nothing flammable is deposited around the DPF muffler. Otherwise a fire may result.

BChecking Washer Liquid If the windows washer is switched on with the washer liquid tank empty, the motor may be damaged. Always keep the tank filled.

A Get the washer liquid tank half filled (about 0.8 liter) before working on a slope or a rough ground. The liquid may leak out when the machine bounces. BChecking Battery Condition

For refillable type battery, follow the instructions below. A Do not use or charge the refillable type battery if the fluid level is below the LOWER (lower limit level) mark. Otherwise, the battery component parts may prematurely deteriorate, which may shorten the battery's service life or cause an explosion. Check the fluid level regularly and add distilled water as required so that the fluid level is between the UPPER and LOWER levels.

A Never remove the vent caps while the engine is running. A Keep electrolyte away from eyes, hands and clothes. If you are spattered with it, wash it away completely with water immediately and get medical attention. A Wear eye protection and rubber gloves when working around the battery. A Before inspection or dismounting the battery, be sure to turn off the engine and turn the starter switch to the "OFF" position. A When removing the battery, always disconnect the negative ground cable first. When installing a battery, always connect the ground cable last. This prevents a possible explosion caused by sparks. The factory-installed battery is of non-refillable type. If the indicator turns white, do not quick charge the battery but replace it with new one. Mishandling the battery shortens the service life and adds to maintenance costs. The original battery is maintenance free, but needs some servicing. If the battery is weak, the engine will be difficult to start and the lights will be dim. It is important to check the battery periodically.

C How to read the indicator Check the battery condition by reading the indicator.

State of indicator display Green Specific gravity of electrolyte and quality of electrolyte are both in good condition. Black Needs charging battery. White Needs replacing battery.

C Battery Charging

To avoid personal injury or death: A When the battery is being activated, hydrogen and oxygen gases in the battery are extremely explosive. Keep open sparks and flames away from the battery at all times, especially when charging the battery. A When charging the battery, ensure the vent caps are securely in place. (if equipped) A When disconnecting the cable from the battery, start with the negative terminal first. When connecting the cable to the battery, start with the positive terminal first. A Never check battery charge by placing a metal object across the posts. Use a voltmeter or hydrometer.

1. To slow charge the battery, connect the battery positive terminal to the charger positive terminal and the negative to the negative, then recharge in the standard fashion.

2. A boost charge is only for emergencies. It will partially charge the battery at a high rate and in a short time. When using a boost-charged battery, it is necessary to recharge the battery as early as possible. Failure to do this will shorten the battery's service life.

3. The battery is charged if the indicator display turns green from black.

4. When exchanging an old battery for a new one, a battery of equal specification.

Battery Type Volts (V) Capacity GP31(105E41R) 12 85.3 (at 5H.R(A.H))

Reserve Cold Normal Battery Type Capacity Cranking Charging (min) Amps Rate (A) GP31(105E41R) 160 900 11

C Direction for Storage 1. When storing the machine for long periods of time, remove the battery from machine, adjust the electrolyte to the proper level and store in a dry place out of direct sunlight.

2. The battery self-discharges while it is stored. Recharge it once every three months in hot seasons and once every six months in cold seasons.

To avoid personal injury or death: A When using anti-freeze, use proper PPE such as rubber gloves (Anti-freeze contains poison.). A If anti-freeze has been swallowed, seek medical attention at once. A When anti-freeze comes in contact with skin or clothing, wash it off immediately. A Do not mix different types of Anti-freeze. The mixture can produce a chemical reaction causing harmful substances or vapors. A Anti-freeze is extremely flammable and explosive under certain conditions. Keep fire and children away from anti-freeze. A When draining fluids from the engine, collect them with a container underneath the engine body. A Do not pour waste onto the ground, down a drain, or into any water source. A Observe all relevant environmental protection regulations when disposing of anti-freeze. A Anti-freeze if swallowed is poisonous to people, animals and birds.

Park the machine on a firm, flat and level surface, lower the lift arms to the ground and stop the engine then remove the key and wait until the engine has cooled down completely. 1. Tilt the radiator.

2. Open the drain plug on the bottom of the radiator and drain coolant completely, Should a recovery tank be equipped, disconnect the line from the tank floor and then open the drain shutoff-valve.

3. To clean, rinse the radiator with water.

4. Close the drain plug and fill the radiator and the recovery tank with coolant fluid. Let the engine idle for about 5 min., stop the engine and remove the key.

5. Check the coolant level of recovery tank and add the coolant if necessary.

6. The machine has been shipped filled with 50% anti­freeze solution.

A Do not operate the engine without coolant. A To fill the radiator system and the recovery tank, use fresh water and anti-freeze fluid. A When the anti-freeze is mixed with water, the anti­freeze ratio must be less than 50%. A Tighten the radiator cap properly. If the cap is loose or not properly fitted, the engine can overheat due to coolant fluid loss. BReplacing Fuel Hose Replace the hoses and clamps. (See "Checking Fuel and Intake Air Line" in EVERY 250 SERVICE HOURS" section.)

SERVICING AS REQUIRED BChecking Amount of Refrigerant (gas)

To avoid personal injury: A Liquid contact with eyes or skin may cause frostbite. A In the event of a leakage, wear safety goggles. Escaping refrigerant can cause severe injuries to eyes. A In contact with a flame, R134a refrigerant gives a toxic gas. A Do not disconnect any part of the refrigeration circuit of the air conditioning system. Consult your local KUBOTA Dealer for assistance and service. A shortage of refrigerant reduces the air-conditioner performance. Check the following points. If it is indicated that the amount of refrigerant is extremely low, ask your dealer to inspect and charge. C Checking procedure 1. Run the air-conditioner in the following conditions. A Engine speed: About 1500 rpm A Temperature control lever: Maximum cooling position (rightmost) A Fan switch: Highest speed (3) A Air-conditioner switch: ON 2. Look into the sight glass to see if the refrigerant is flowing through the circuit.

BDraining Water Separator If the water separator error code (E:9120) appears on the meter panel, immediately drain the water separator. (For detail procedure, refer to page 72.)

A If you don’t drain the water separator immediately after the alarm, the engine may be seriously damaged. A Without the water separator drained, the cleaning efficiency of the DPF will be reduced and the DPF longevity will be shorter than expected. (3000 hours)

OTHER ADJUSTMENTS AND REPLACEMENTS

PURGING OF THE FUEL SYSTEM 1. Fill up the machine with fuel.

2. Turn the starter key to the "RUN" position.

3. The air in the fuel system will automatically be purged within one minute.

(1) Starter switch (A) "STOP" (B) "RUN"

(C) "START"

A If the purging was insufficient, the engine dies right after starting. In this case repeat steps 2 to 3 again. ADJUSTMENT OF TRACKS C To loosen the tracks, follow the following procedure:

To avoid personal injury or death: A Do not loosen the grease fitting completely or too quickly. Otherwise grease under high pressure in the tension cylinder could squirt out. A Do not work under the machine. 1. Loosen the bolts and remove the cover.

2. Using a socket wrench, loosen the grease fitting a few turns.

After adjustment is completed: Using the socket wrench, tighten the grease fitting. Tightening torque must be between 98 to 108 N-m (72.3 to 79.7 ft-lbs).

A If the tracks are too tight, wear is increased. A If the tracks are too loose, the track pads may collide with the sprocket and wear is increased. The track may dislocate or come off. A Clean the track after every use. A Should the track tension be high due to mud or debris, remove debris from the track. C To tension the tracks, follow the following procedure: 1. Loosen the bolt and remove the cover.

2. Apply grease into the grease fitting.

(1) Cover

(2) Bolt

(3) Grease fitting

(4) Grease gun

3. To check the track tension, put the machine on jack stands. The track must be lifted from the ground as shown. The track tension is correct if the distance (A) (clearance between the outer end of the track roller and the track interior surface) corresponds to the dimension specified in the table below.

A Do not work under the machine in this condition. A For your safety do not rely on hydraulically supported devices, they may leak down and suddenly drop or be accidentally lowered.

A Make sure that no objects, such as stones are caught in the track. Remove all objects before adjusting the track tension. If the seam is positioned incorrectly, the tracks will be tensioned too loosely, and a further readjustment will be necessary. A Rotate the track after adjustment one to two times to check the tension. A Additionally following points are to be observed when adjusting rubber tracks. (1) Check track tension 50 hours after initial use and readjust if necessary. Check and adjust thereafter every 50 service hours. FUSES

OPERATION UNDER COLD WEATHER CONDITIONS

PREPARATION FOR OPERATION IN COLD WEATHER 1. Replace engine oil and hydraulic oil with those of viscosities suitable for cold weather.

2. In cold weather, battery power drops, and the battery fluid may freeze if the battery is not sufficiently charged. To prevent the battery fluid from freezing, be sure to keep the battery charged at least 80% or more of its capacity after operation. To ease next starting, it is recommended to keep the battery stored in closed or heated room.

3. Add anti-freeze to coolant in the radiator and recovery tank, if the ambient temperature is expected to drop below 0 (32 ). Mixing ratio of water and anti-freeze depends on the expected ambient temperature. When mixing, stir it up well, and then fill into the radiator.

A Mixing ratio between water and anti-freeze PROCEDURE AFTER COMPLETION WORK Clean the machine thoroughly after work and wipe dry. Otherwise mud and earth on the tracks could freeze if the temperature drops below the 0 (32 ). Operation of the machine is then not possible. Store the machine in a dry place; if not possible, store on wooden planks or on mats. If the machine is kept on damp or muddy ground, the tracks could freeze overnight. Operation of the machine is then not possible. Furthermore the reduction gear may be damaged. Additionally, the piston rods of the hydraulic cylinders must be rubbed dry. Otherwise severe damage could occur if dirty water seeps through the seals.

A Use permanent anti-freeze or long-life coolant. A Drain the coolant completely and clean the inside of the radiator, then fill with the water and anti-freeze mixture. A The anti-freeze acts as an anti-corrosive, it is not necessary to add an additive to the water and anti­freeze mixture. A See "Checking coolant Level" in "DAILY CHECKS" in "MAINTENANCE" section for radiator fill volumes. A See "STARTING THE ENGINE UNDER COLD CONDITIONS" in "OPERATION OF THE ENGINE" section. LONG STORAGE

A Do not clean the machine with the engine running.

A To avoid the danger of exhaust fume poisoning, do not operate the engine in a closed building or any areas without proper ventilation. A When storing, remove the key from the starter switch to avoid unauthorized persons from operating the machine and getting injured. A Bring the machine on a firm, flat, and level surface. Lower the lift arms on the ground. B Should the Machine be Stored for a Longer Period of Time, Observe Following Procedures: 1. The whole machine should be cleaned thoroughly and in all cases stored indoors. If the machine has to be kept outdoors, lay out wooden planks on even ground, place the machine on the planks and cover completely.

2. Do an oil change and grease the machine.

3. Heavily grease the visible section of the cylinder rods.

4. Remove the battery and store indoors.

5. Preferably drain the DEF out of its tank and store the fluid in another specific tank.

6. If it is expected that the temperature will fall below the 0

(32 ), add anti-freeze or drain coolant completely.

A Wash the machine after stopping the engine. If you wash the machine while running the engine, splashing water gets into the air cleaner through its intake and cause engine damage. Carefully, wash and do not splash water over the air cleaner while the engine is running. B Storeing and Handling DEF

7. Because DEF is a urea aqueous solution, it begins to freeze at ambient temperatures below –11 (12 ). In winter, handle it with enough care. 8. DEF may be stored in the loader’s tank for up to 4 months. If the storage area’s ambient temperature rises above 30 (86 ), however, its storage life will be markedly reduced.

C Storage method

1. Store the solution in a well-sealed container.

2. Place the container in a location not exposed to direct sunlight.

3. Place the container in a well-ventilated spot.

4. Keep the container in a spot without violent temperature changes.

5. Keep the container away from any containers of gasoline and diesel fuel.

B Observe Following Procedures when the Machine is to be Operated after Long Storage. 1. Wipe off the grease from the hydraulic cylinder rods.

2. Turn on the engine and operate the attachments and the drive mechanisms under no load in order to circulate the

hydraulic oil. (If the machine is stored for longer than one month, do steps 1 and 2 once every month.)

Periodic replacement of important component parts

To ensure safety in operation, you are strongly requested to inspect and service the machine at regular intervals. For added safety, ask your KUBOTA dealer to replace the following important component parts. These parts are prone to degradation in material or subject to wear and tear with time. It is difficult to judge how much they have been affected at regular inspection. It is therefore necessary to replace them with new ones, whether wear is visible or not after a specified time of use. If any of them is found worn even before the specified use, it must be repaired or replaced the same way as other parts. If any of the hose clamps is found deformed or cracked, the hose clamp must also be replaced. For the hydraulic hoses other than the ones to be replaced periodically, inspect them for the following points. If found unusual, tighten them or replace them. When replacing the hydraulic hoses, change their O rings and seals with new ones. For replacement of the important parts, contact your KUBOTA dealer.

A At the following periodic inspections, check the fuel hoses and hydraulic hoses as well.

Inspection Interval Check points Daily Checks Oil leak at fuel and hydraulic hose connections and points Every month Oil leak at fuel and hydraulic hose connections and points Damages at fuel and hydraulic hose (cracks, chafing) Every year Oil leak at fuel and hydraulic hose connections and points Interference, deformation, degradation, twist and other damage (cracks, chafing) of fuel and hydraulic hoses

List of important component parts

To prevent serious damage to the hydraulic system, use only a KUBOTA genuine hydraulic hose. RECOMMENDED OILS

1. Before delivery the hydraulic oil used was Idemitsu Daphne Super Hydro 46ST.

2. Use engine oil API service classification CJ-4.

3. Use SAE 90 (API, GL-4, GL-5) as drive unit oil for all seasons.

Application Viscosity KTC recommends Shell ExxonMobil Gear oil All-weather gear oil SAE 90 Excavator Gear Oil 90 Part Number 70000-68700 (1 Quart) Shell Spirex HD80W-90 Mobilube HD Plus 80W-90 Hydraulic oil Kubota Hydraulic Fluid 46HD Grease Shell Alvania EP2 Mobilux EP2 Fuel Diesel Fuel No.2-D S15 Fuel under -5 (23 ) Diesel Fuel No.1-D S15

C Engine Oil: A Oil used in the engine should have an American Petroleum Institute (API) service classification and Proper SAE Engine Oil according to the ambient temperatures. Above 25 (77 ) SAE 30 or SAE 10W-30, SAE 15W-40 0 to 25 (32 to 77 ) SAE 20 or SAE 10W-30, SAE 15W-40 Below 0 (32 ) SAE 10W or SAE 10W-30, SAE 15W-40

A Refer to the following table for the suitable API classification engine oil and the fuel. Fuel used Engine oil classification (API classification) Oil class of engines except external DPF Ultra Low Sulfur Fuel [<0.0015% (15 ppm)] CJ-4

C Fuel:

A Use the ultra low sulfur diesel fuel only [below 0.0015 % (15 ppm)] for these engines. A Cetane number of 45 minimum. Cetane number greater than 50 is preferred, especially for temperatures below -20

(-4

) or elevations above 1500 m (5000 ft). A Diesel fuels specified to EN 590 or ASTM D975 are recommended. A No. 2-D is a distillate fuel of lower volatility for engines in industrial and heavy mobile service. (SAE J313 JUN87)

A Indicated capacities of water and oil are manufacture’s estimate.

A If you use different fuel or engine oil, the cleaning efficiency of the DPF will be reduced and the DPF longevity will be shorter than expected. (3000 hours) A Filters must trap fuel and lubricant sulfate additives (Zn, Pb, Na, K, Ca, Mg, Cu, Ba, P, etc.) as ash during combustion. Fuel must be controlled carefully to prevent the additives being mixed into fuel such as fuel tank anti-oxidants, water remover, anti-freeze and so on. BIODIESEL FUEL (BDF)

B0-B5 Biodiesel fuels (BDF): mixed diesel fuels containing 5% or less biodiesel can be utilized under the following conditions.

A Concentrations greater than B5 (5%) are NOT approved for common rail engines. Such fuel use can cause damage and reduce engine life. A Refueling and handling fuel should be done with caution in order to avoid contact with the fuel and spillage that could create a potential environmental or fire hazard. Wear appropriate protective equipment when refueling. C Applicable BDF:

1. BDF concentration must not exceed 5% by volume (B5 blend). Greater concentrations increase the likelihood of corrosion and failure of the aluminum, zinc, rubber, and plastic parts of the fuel system.

2. Any mineral oil diesel fuel, if used, must conform to ASTM D975 (or the European EN590) Standard, as revised. B100 fuel used to make Biodiesel blended fuels must meet ASTM D6751 (or EN14214) Standard, as revised. Straight vegetable oil is NOT allowed in any blended fuel.

3. Kubota strongly recommends that B5 blend be purchased from a BQ-9000 accredited producer or certified marketer. Kubota discourages local blending of BDF, because it is difficult to meet the quality requirements explained above.

C Product Warranty, Emission and Other Precautions:

1. The engine emission control system was certified according to current regulations based on the use of non-BDF. When using BDF, the owner is advised to check applicable local and federal emission regulations and comply with all of them.

2. BDF may cause restricted or clogged fuel filters during cold weather conditions, resulting in the engine not operating properly.

3. BDF encourages the growth of microorganisms which may cause degradation of the fuel. This in turn may cause fuel line corrosion or reduce fuel filter flow earlier than expected.

4. BDF inherently absorbs moisture which may cause degradation of the fuel earlier than expected. To avoid this, drain the water separator and fuel filter port often.

5. Do not use Biodiesel concentrations higher than 5% (i.e. greater than B5). Engine performance and fuel consumption will be affected, and degradation of the fuel system components may occur.

6. Do not readjust the engine fuel control system as this will violate emission control levels for which the equipment was approved.

7. Compared with soybean-based and rapeseed-based feedstock, palm oil-based feedstock has a thicker consistency

(i.e. higher viscosity) at lower temperatures. Consequently, fuel filter performance may be reduced, particularly during cold weather conditions.

8. The Kubota Warranty, as specified in the Owner's Warranty Information Guide, only covers defects in product materials and workmanship. Accordingly, any problems that may arise due to the use of poor quality fuels that fail to meet the above requirements, whether biodiesel or mineral oil based, are not covered by the Kubota Warranty.

C Routine handling:

1. Avoid spilling BDF onto painted surfaces as this may damage the finish. If fuel is spilled immediately wipe clean and flush with soapy water to avoid permanent damage.

2. When using BDF, you are advised to maintain a full tank of fuel, especially overnight and during short term storage, to reduce condensation within the tank. Be sure to tighten the fuel cap after refueling to prevent moisture build up within the tank. Water in the Biodiesel mixture will damage fuel filters and may damage engine components.

3. Follow the oil change intervals recommended by referring to the "MAINTENANCE" section. Extended oil change intervals may result in premature wear or engine damage.

C Long Term Storage:

1. BDF easily deteriorates due to oxygen, water, heat and foreign substances. Do not store longer than 3 months.

2. When using B5 fuel and storing machine longer than 3 months, drain the fuel from the tanks and replace with light mineral oil diesel fuel. Subsequently, run the engine at least 30 minutes to remove all of the Biodiesel from the fuel lines.
