Proposition 65 Warning
Use of this product may cause exposure to chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.
There may be buried utility lines in the work area. Digging into them may cause a shock or an explosion.
Have the property or work area marked for buried lines and do not dig in marked areas. Contact your local marking service or utility company to have the property marked (for example, in the US, call 811 or in Australia, call 1100 for the nationwide marking service).
Always follow all safety instructions to avoid serious injury or death.
Do not carry a load with the arms raised; always carry loads close to the ground; refer to Transport Position.
Have the property or work area marked for buried lines and other objects, and do not dig in marked areas.
Read and understand the content of this Operator’s Manual before starting the engine.
Use your full attention while operating the machine. Do not engage in any activity that causes distractions; otherwise, injury or property damage may occur.
Never allow children or untrained people to operate the machine.
Keep your hands and feet away from the moving components and attachments.
Do not operate the machine without the guards and other safety protective devices in place and working on the machine.
Keep bystanders and pets a safe distance away from the machine.
Stop the machine, shut off the engine, and remove the key before servicing, fueling, or unclogging the machine.
Improperly using or maintaining this machine can result in injury. To reduce the potential for injury, comply with these safety instructions and always pay attention to the safety-alert symbol, which means Caution, Warning, or Danger—personal safety instruction. Failure to comply with these instructions may result in personal injury or death.
You can find additional safety information where needed throughout this Operator’s Manual.
Operate the machine up and down slopes with the heavy end of the machine uphill. Weight distribution changes with attachments. An empty attachment makes the rear of the machine the heavy end, and a full attachment makes the front of the machine the heavy end. Most other attachments make the front of machine the heavy end.
Keep the loader arms in the lowered position when on slopes. Raising the loader arms on a slope affects the stability of the machine.
Slopes are a major factor related to loss of control and tip-over accidents, which can result in severe injury or death. Operating the machine on any slope or uneven terrain requires extra caution.
Establish your own procedures and rules for operating on slopes. These procedures must include surveying the site to determine which slopes are safe for machine operation. Always use common sense and good judgment when performing this survey.
Slow down and use extra care on hillsides. Ground conditions can affect the stability of the machine.
Avoid starting or stopping on a slope. If the machine loses traction, proceed slowly, straight down the slope.
Avoid turning on slopes. If you must turn, turn slowly and keep the heavy end of the machine uphill.
Keep all movements on slopes slow and gradual. Do not make sudden changes in speed or direction.
If you feel uneasy operating the machine on a slope, do not do it.
Watch for holes, ruts, or bumps, as uneven terrain could overturn the machine. Tall grass can hide obstacles.
Use caution when operating on wet surfaces. Reduced traction could cause sliding.
Do not operate the machine near drop-offs, ditches, embankments, or bodies of water. The machine could suddenly roll over if a wheel or track goes over the edge or the edge caves in. Maintain a safe distance between the machine and any hazard.
Do not remove or add attachments on a slope.
Do not park the machine on a hillside or slope.
Wear gloves, eye protection, long pants, substantial slip-resistant footwear, and hearing protection during operation or while adjusting or repairing the machine.
After striking a foreign object, shut off the engine, remove the key, thoroughly inspect the attachment for any damage, and repair the damage before starting and operating the attachment.
Always lower the attachment each time you shut off the machine or leave the operating position.
Clean any dirt or debris that may hinder connecting the attachment to the machine. Ensure that the attachment-locking pins are fully seated in the holes of the attachment-mount plate. Refer to the Operator’s Manual for the machine for detailed information on safely connecting an attachment to your machine.
When lifting the attachment keep it level and prevent the load from spilling backward.
Check fasteners at frequent intervals for proper tightness to ensure that the equipment is in safe operating condition.
Refer to the Operator’s Manual for important details if you store the attachment for an extended period of time
Maintain or replace safety and instruction labels, as necessary.
Safety decals and instructions are easily visible to the operator and are located near any area of potential danger. Replace any decal that is damaged or missing.
Note: Always use the traction unit to lift and move the attachment.
Important: Before installing the bucket, ensure that the mount plates are free of any dirt or debris and that the pins rotate freely. If the pins do not rotate freely, grease them.
Before installing or removing the attachment, position the machine on a level surface; refer to the Operator’s Manual for the traction unit for the installation and removal procedure.
When loading material, always have the bucket level to the ground, moving forward into the material to be lifted. When the bucket is full, tilt it gently rearward to decrease the lifting resistance when you lift the load.
When transporting a load, keep the attachment as close to the ground as possible, no more than 15 cm (6 inches) above the lowest position. Tilt it rearward to keep the load level.
Note: Specifications and design are subject to change without notice.

The density of the materials moved by the bucket varies and, therefore, so does the amount of material that the bucket can carry before reaching the maximum load rating. The first table lists the density of material that can be carried, both heaped and struck (i.e., leveled off), in the bucket. The Material Density table lists common materials and their densities.
