Emergency Suspension Charging and
Emergency Drive Belt Tension
The hydraulic system operates at high pressure. Wear
eye and face protection, gloves and protective clothing
when performing this procedure. Failure to comply may
result in severe injury or death.
This procedure is for emergency field use, to mobilize the
machine if either of the drive belts become loose. If this
procedure is performed for any reason, deliver the machine
to Unit Maintenance to have the suspension properly
charged before returning the machine to normal service. Do
not overcharge the cylinders.

NOTE: The same procedure can be applied to either side of
1. Open suspension manual lock valve (1) by rotating
the valve clockwise.
NOTE: The emergency drive belt tension procedure
will not work if the suspension is locked.
NOTE: Thoroughly clean the couplings of all hoses
used in this procedure before connecting the coupling
to any port on the machine.
