Stopping the Grader.
Move the governor control lever forward to reduce engine speed.
Apply the service brake pedal and transmission modulator pedal to stop the machine.
Move the transmission control lever to neutral.
Apply the parking/emergency brake.
Parking the Grader.
NEVER leave operator compartment without applying parking brake.
DO NOT use parking/emergency brake to stop a moving machine under usual conditions.
Only if service brakes fail, apply parking/emergency brake. Failure to follow these warnings may result
in injury to personnel or damage to equipment.
Prolonged idling may cause wet stacking or sludge buildup in the engine.
Apply parking/emergency brake to secure machine against movement when parked.
Lower the blade and scarifier to the ground. Apply slight downward pressure.
OPERATE DIFFERENTIAL LOCK
Excessive wheel spin and uncontrolled wheel spin can cause accelerated wear of power train compo-
nents and tires.
Improper use of differential lock may damage components of differential lock and power train.
The differential lock switch should be in the locked position most of the time. The differential lock switch
should only be in the unlocked position when making sharp turns or large articulation changes, especially on
hard, dry surfaces and when roading the machine at higher speeds on hard surfaces.
Turn differential lock switch to ON position.
Keep differential lock switch in the ON position while making small steering or articulation adjustments. This will pre-
vent wheel slippage when traction is poor. Power will be equally distributed to each wheel and all wheels will turn at the
Anticipate using differential lock before wheel slippage occurs. DO NOT engage differential lock while one wheel is
slipping. Decrease engine RPM until wheel stops spinning, and then engage differential lock.
Operator controls machine direction using steering wheel.
Avoid oversteering. Become familiar with steering characteristics of machine before attempting maneuvers in limited
