This manual should be stored in the operator's compartment in the literature holder or seat back literature storage area.
This manual contains safety information, operation instructions, transportation information, lubrication information and maintenance information.
Some photographs or illustrations in this publication show details or attachments that can be different from your machine.
Guards and covers might have been removed for illustrative purposes.
Continuing improvement and advancement of product design might have caused changes to your machine which are not included in this publication. Read, study and keep this manual with the machine.
Whenever a question arises regarding your machine, or this publication, please consult your AVSpare dealer for the latest available information.
The safety section lists basic safety precautions. In addition, this section identifies the text and locations of warning signs and labels used on the machine.
Read and understand the basic precautions listed in the safety section before operating or performing lubrication, maintenance and repair on this machine.
The operation section is a reference for the new operator and a refresher for the experienced operator. This section includes a discussion of gauges, switches, machine controls, attachment controls, transportation and towing information.
Photographs and illustrations guide the operator through correct procedures of checking, starting, operating and stopping the machine.
Operating techniques outlined in this publication are basic. Skill and techniques develop as the operator gains knowledge of the machine and its capabilities.
The maintenance section is a guide to equipment care. The Maintenance Interval Schedule (MIS) lists the items to be maintained at a specific service interval. Items without specific intervals are listed under the "When Required" service interval.
The Maintenance Interval Schedule lists the page number for the step-by-step instructions required to accomplish the scheduled maintenance. Use the Maintenance Interval Schedule as an index or "one safe source" for all maintenance procedures.
Use the service hour meter to determine servicing intervals. Calendar intervals shown (daily, weekly, monthly, etc) can be used instead of service hour meter intervals if they provide more convenient servicing schedules and approximate the indicated service hour meter reading. Recommended service should always be performed at the interval that occurs first.
Under extremely severe, dusty or wet operating conditions, more frequent lubrication than is specified in the maintenance intervals chart might be necessary.
Perform service on items at multiples of the original requirement. For example, at every 500 service hours or 3 months, also service those items listed under every 250 service hours or monthly and every 10 service hours or daily.
California Proposition 65 Warning
Diesel engine exhaust and some of its constituents are known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, and other reproductive harm.
Battery posts, terminals and related accessories contain lead and lead compounds. Wash hands after handling.
Certified Engine Maintenance
Proper maintenance and repair is essential to keep the engine and machine systems operating correctly. As the heavy duty off-road diesel engine owner, you are responsible for the performance of the required maintenance listed in the Owner Manual, Operation and Maintenance Manual, and Service Manual.
It is prohibited for any person engaged in the business of repairing, servicing, selling, leasing, or trading engines or machines to remove, alter, or render inoperative any emission related device or element of design installed on or in an engine or machine that is in compliance with the regulations (40 CFR Part 89). Certain elements of the machine and engine such as the exhaust system, fuel system, electrical system, intake air system and cooling system may be emission related and should not be altered unless approved by AVSpare.
Additional attachments or modifications may exceed machine design capacity which can adversely affect performance characteristics. Included would be stability and system certifications such as brakes, steering, and rollover protective structures (ROPS). Contact your AVSpare dealer for further information.
AVSpare Product Identification Number
Effective First Quarter 2001 the AVSpare Product Identification Number (PIN) will change from 8 to 17 characters. In an effort to provide uniform equipment identification, AVSpare and other construction equipment manufacturers are moving to comply with the latest version of the product identification numbering standard. Non-road machine PINs are defined by ISO 10261. The new PIN format will apply to all AVSpare machines and generator sets. The PIN plates and frame marking will display the 17 character PIN. The new format will look like the following:
- 1. AVSpare's World Manufacturing Code (characters 1-3)
- 2. Machine Descriptor (characters 4-8)
- 3. Check Character (character 9)
- 4. Machine Indicator Section (MIS) or Product Sequence Number (characters 10-17). These were previously referred to as the Serial Number.
- 2. Machine Descriptor (characters 4-8)
Machines and generator sets produced before First Quarter 2001 will maintain their 8 character PIN format.
Components such as engines, transmissions, axles, etc. and work tools will continue to use an 8 character Serial Number (S/N).
