OPERATION UNDER UNUSUAL CONDITIONS - CONTINUED
OPERATION IN SALTWATER AREAS
Keep the machine as clean as possible. Wash down with fresh water after use.
Inspect wiring connections closely for corrosion.
Keep lubrication points clean and well lubricated.
OPERATION AT HIGH ALTITUDES
Engine operates at less than peak performance at high altitudes.
Coolant level and engine indicators must be watched closely.
Add coolant if necessary.
OPERATE IN SNOW AND ICE
Fuel tank should be kept full. Keep snow and ice away from fuel filler.
Clean snow away from outside indicators.
Engage differential lock and accelerate slowly to avoid spinning tires.
Drive at slower speeds.
Give signals sooner.
Apply brakes sooner to give early warning of intention to stop. This will also help to avoid skidding.
Maintain double the normal distance from the machine ahead.
Keep windshields, mirrors, and lights clean and free of snow and ice.
If approaching a difficult stretch of road, stop and inspect road carefully before driving on it.
Select transmission gear range that best suits road condition. Use differential lock as required.
Ease up on accelerator, leaving machine in gear.
Apply service brakes lightly and evenly. DO NOT pump service brake pedal.
Always avoid sudden braking.
Parking. If parking on icy, slushy, wet, or muddy surfaces, place boards, brush, or other materials that will provide trac-
tion underneath tires. This will guard against tires freezing to the ground or becoming pocketed in ice, and will provide
some traction when machine is started and moving again.
