No matter what industry sector, safe operation is always put first! Any small negligence may trigger a safety accident, and must always be vigilant. We have made a special skid steer loader safety operation specification, we hope it can help you.

Before starting operation

The most easily ignored item of equipment by mechanics is the clothing they wear before operating the equipment, in order to avoid bringing attention to the handle or other buttons during operation of the danger, construction workers should wear a helmet and reflective underwear.

Getting on and off the equipment requires facing the equipment, using the steps and handrails, and using the three-point method.

You also need to face the equipment when getting off and pay attention to your head to avoid bumping.

After entering the equipment, you need to adjust the seat position according to your own situation to make the operation more comfortable and safe.

Do not start the device until the safety lever is lowered. It must be confirmed that there are no people working around the machine, while pressing the horn and sounding the horn to remind people around to stand to the safe part before starting the machine.

The engine speed control lever is adjusted to halfway during low temperature start. Return to the idle position after the engine starts. Allow the engine to run for 5 minutes to raise the engine and hydraulic transmission fluid temperature before operating the loader. When the ambient temperature is below -30°C, the hydraulic fluid must be heated before starting. Low temperatures do not deliver sufficient hydraulic pressure to the hydraulic system and can damage it. The loader should be parked as much as possible in a place where the temperature is higher than 0°C.

During working

When shoveling materials, the vehicle speed should be reduced to below 4km/h. When operating on uneven ground, when the bucket is fully loaded, slow down as much as possible to avoid losing control or even overturning.

After Working

Try to park the machine on a level ground and place pads in front and behind the tires to prevent the machine from sliding. If the machine temporarily needs to be parked on a slope, place a more stable pad under the wheel to prevent the machine from sliding.
