Emergency Machine Leveling
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 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.
NOTE: Before performing the emergency machine
leveling procedure, fully kneel and raise the machine
twice on level ground. Refer to Machine Features,
Kneeling Switch in this section.
NOTE: The same procedure can be applied to either side
of the machine.
1. Open suspension manual lock valve (1) by rotating the
NOTE: The emergency machine leveling 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.
2. Remove the charge hose and the gauge group from
the BII compartment. Disconnect coupling (3) from
coupling (4) on the charge hose. Connect coupling
(8) of the gauge group to coupling (4) of the charge
hose. Connect coupling (10) of the gauge group to
coupling (3) of the charge hose.
