Do not turn vibratory system on while Roller
is standing still on a very solid surface. A
loss of steering can be experienced which
could result in injury to personnel.
The vibration on/off switch turns the
vibratory system on by pressing once or off
by pressing again. There is no way to tell if
the vibratory system is on or off when the
engine is not running and on/off switch is
in high or low position.
Ensure that the vibratory control
switch (8) is turned off (center
When desired low idle is reached,
turn throttle lock (3) to full right to
lock throttle control (4) in position.
(e) Watch indicator and warning lights
closely. Stop Roller, turn engine off, and
notify Unit Maintenance when any
unusual readings occur.
(a) Allow a cold engine to warm up at low idle for at
least 5 minutes. Complete warm up requires
approximately 30 minutes in temperatures below 32°F (0°C). In temperatures below 0°F (18°C),
or if hydraulic functions are sluggish, more time may be required.
(b) Observe warning and indicator lights frequently during warm-up.
(c) Cycle all steering and propulsion controls several times to allow warm hydraulic oil to circulate
through all cylinders and lines.
(a) Park Roller in sheltered area out of wind. If a sheltered area is not available, park Roller so it
faces into wind to prevent wind from blowing into radiator and causing damage.
(b) Drain fuel/water separator before filling tank to prevent any water in fuel from freezing. This will
also prevent clogging of fuel filter. Dispose of drained fluids in accordance with local regulations.
