To prevent damage to the hydraulic cylinders, both travel stops on the loader arms are to be deployed
whenever the travel stops are required. Failure to comply may result in damage to vehicle.
The hydraulic cylinders on each loader arm incorporate a travel stop fixture at the uppermost attachment point. The travel
stops are locked in the stowed position by spring-loader locking pins. When the travel stops are deployed, they physically
restrict the amount the hydraulic cylinder retracts, thereby limiting the distance they may be lowered, and a locking clevis is
used to secure the 4-in-1 bucket to the frame. This prevents the 4-in-1 bucket from coming into contact with the ground while
the vehicle is traveling.
To prepare the vehicle for FEL operation:
Ensure travel stops are stowed.
Ensure locking clevis is detached.
Mud flaps must be in the up position prior to off-road driving or FEL operations. Failure to comply
may result in damage to equipment.
