Diesel fuel or hydraulic fluid under pressure can
penetrate skin or eyes, causing serious injury or
death. Fluid leaks under pressure may not be visible.
Use a piece of cardboard or wood to find leaks. Do
not use your bare hand. Wear safety goggles. If fluid
enters skin or eyes, get immediate medical attention
from a physician familiar with this injury.
W-2072-0496 P-37930

Use only recommended fluid in the hydraulic system. Open the rear door. Remove the dipstick (Item 1)

Stop the engine. NOTE: The dipstick may indicate an incorrect level of
fluid when first removed because of
expansion or contraction of oil in the fill tube.
Always (1) remove the dipstick, (2) wipe the
dipstick, (3) insert the dipstick again and (4)
re-check the fluid level.

If fluid is needed, remove the dipstick (Item 1) [Figure


10-120-1] and add fluid to the reservoir until the level is
correct.

Recommended tire pressure must be maintained to avoid


excessive tire wear and loss of stability and handling
capability. Check for the correct pressure before
operating the loader.

SEAT BAR RESTRAINT SYSTEM Seat Bar Maintenance

The seat bar restraint system has a pivoting seat bar with Figure 10-200-1
arm rests and has spring loaded interlocks for the lift and
tilt control pedals. The operator controls the use of the
seat bar. The seat bar in the down position helps to keep
the operator in the seat. The interlocks require the
operator to lower the seat bar in order to operate the foot
pedal controls. When the seat bar is up, the lift and tilt
pedals are locked when returned to the neutral position.

WARNING
AVOID INJURY OR DEATH
The Seat Bar System must lock the lift and tilt foot
pedals or hand controls in neutral when the Seat Bar
is up. Service the system if controls do not lock
correctly.

KEY TO CORRECT THE CAUSE
1. The fluid level is not correct.
2. The pedal linkage is disconnected.
3. The hydraulic pump has damage.
4. The pedal linkage is not adjusted correctly.
5. Relief valve is not at the correct pressure.
6. Suction leak on the inlet side of the hydraulic pump.
7. Fluid is cold. Wrong viscosity fluid. (See Specifications on Page SPEC-50-1.)
8. Using the loader for more than its rated capacity.
9. Internal leak in the lift cylinder(s).
10. External leak from the lift cylinder(s).
11. Damaged lift spool.

3. Check wiring and connections. Make sure the connector is securely connected to the controller. Pull on
connector to check.
4. Look at indicator light windows, if they are milky white in appearance it is most likely caused by moisture
in the controller. Allow to dry or replace the controller.
5. Refer to BICS controller troubleshooting chart. (See Troubleshooting Chart on Page 60-80-2.)
6. Check wire connections to make sure connectors are locked into place.
7. Check pins in connectors for pins pushed back or bent.
8. Move the system wiring back & forth to try to find area that may be causing the intermittent connection.
9. Use sensor tester MEL 1428 to isolate problem between sensor and controller and wiring.
10. Check the wiring connections. Remove the left instrument panel and check the Push to Operate Button
