1 Gauges When should I check the gauges? When should I check the gauges? At start up At start up Regular intervals during operation Regular intervals during operation When changes occur in normal sounds of operation When changes occur in normal sounds of operation

2 Instruments Common instruments used: Common instruments used: Engine Speed Indicator (Tachometer) Engine Speed Indicator (Tachometer) Oil Pressure Indicator Oil Pressure Indicator Engine Temperature Indicator Engine Temperature Indicator Fuel Gauge Fuel Gauge Air Filter Condition Indicator Air Filter Condition Indicator Transmission Temperature Indicator Transmission Temperature Indicator Hydraulic System Oil Level Indicator Hydraulic System Oil Level Indicator Hour Meter Hour Meter Charge Indicator Charge Indicator image.tradeindia.com/ /b/Hour-Meter- Electronics.jpg

3 Tractor Controls Color coding for controls: Color coding for controls: Stop Engine—RED Stop Engine—RED Ground Motion—ORANGE Ground Motion—ORANGE Power Engagement—YELLOW Power Engagement—YELLOW Positioning and Adjusting—BLACK Positioning and Adjusting—BLACK

4 General Rules for Moving Controls When using a foot brake, push it in; When using a hand brake, pull up. When using a foot brake, push it in; When using a hand brake, pull up. A foot clutch is disengaged when it is pushed in and engaged when let up A foot clutch is disengaged when it is pushed in and engaged when let up Hand operated engine controls (throttles) increase engine speed when moved upward or forward. Foot operated throttles increase speed when pushed forward or downward by toe pressure Hand operated engine controls (throttles) increase engine speed when moved upward or forward. Foot operated throttles increase speed when pushed forward or downward by toe pressure

5 General Rules for Moving Controls Direction of tractor is controlled by specific forward and reverse gears or by directional controls. If a hand operated direction control is used, the tractor moves in the same direction as the control is moved. Direction of tractor is controlled by specific forward and reverse gears or by directional controls. If a hand operated direction control is used, the tractor moves in the same direction as the control is moved. The engine stop control is by key and by mechanical push-pull control. A key is always turned counterclockwise to stop an engine. A push-pull lever is always pulled out to stop the engine. The engine stop control is by key and by mechanical push-pull control. A key is always turned counterclockwise to stop an engine. A push-pull lever is always pulled out to stop the engine. Controls that lift or lower attachments or implements are generally pushed forward, down, or away for lowering, and pulled back, up, or toward you for lifting. Controls that lift or lower attachments or implements are generally pushed forward, down, or away for lowering, and pulled back, up, or toward you for lifting. A PTO is usually engaged when pulled up or pushed forward. A PTO is usually engaged when pulled up or pushed forward.

6 RED—Stop Engine Gasoline Engine—Red letters on key switch Diesel Engine—Red fuel shut-off switch *Most diesel engines are shut off with the fuel shut-off switch, not by the ignition key*

7 RED—Stop Engine Rules for RED: Rules for RED: Be within 6 inches of the key switch Be within 6 inches of the key switch Be pulled to stop Be pulled to stop Be labeled “Pull to Stop Engine” Be labeled “Pull to Stop Engine” Remain in the stop position without continued effort Remain in the stop position without continued effort

8 ORANGE—Ground Motion Ground Motion Controls Include: Ground Motion Controls Include: Engine Speed Engine Speed Transmission Controls Transmission Controls Parking Brake or Park-Lock Parking Brake or Park-Lock Independent Emergency Brakes Independent Emergency Brakes Differential Lock Differential Lock

9 ORANGE—Ground Motion Rules for ORANGE: Rules for ORANGE: Engine speed controls are operated with right hand and/or right foot Engine speed controls are operated with right hand and/or right foot Transmission gearshift patterns must be clearly and permanently identified Transmission gearshift patterns must be clearly and permanently identified Differential lock controls are engaged with a forward or downward motion Differential lock controls are engaged with a forward or downward motion Brake locks may be a mechanical lock on the drive train versus a lock on the axle. Brake locks may be a mechanical lock on the drive train versus a lock on the axle. osta/index_files/Task% 20Sheets/4.5.2%20Gro und%20Motion%20Co ntrols.pdf
