5.4.1 Water filling system
For upgrading the trough battery with a
water filling system (Fig. 23/3), each individual cell is provided with a closure
plug with float indicator. Please read the
operating manual from the battery manufacturer for information on the fill level
indicator. If some cells are below the set
value, distilled water must be refilled in
them. In this case, the end piece of the
water filling system is connected to a
tank containing demineralized water (in
accordance with DIN 43530/4). Ensure
a sufficient gradient so that the water
can flow into the cells. When the fill level
required is reached, the plugs close the
cells automatically and indicate they are
full, the battery can be disconnected
from the water tank.
Refilling may only be completed when battery charging has
ended (green LED indicator on
the charger)
5.4.2 Charge status indicator (TSG)
The vehicle is equipped with a charge
status indicator (Fig. 23/4) to prevent
the batteries being fully discharged.
The total discharge signal transducer is
integrated in the electronics. If other
batteries are used, the total discharge
signal transducer must be adjusted.
The total discharge signal
transducer may only be adjusted by an authorized Minuteman service center.
5.4.3 Servicing the driving batteries
For information on servicing driving batteries, refer to operating manual 88-602556.
5.4.4 Disposing of batteries
Used batteries with the recycling symbol contain reusable commodities. In
accordance with symbol with the
crossed out bin, these batteries must
not be disposed of in domestic waste.
Return and recycling must be agreed
on with an authorized Minuteman dealer in accordance with § 6 and 8 BattG
(Battery Law)!

Height adjustment
The height adjustment is set to 3 mm at
the factory. If, despite an optimum angle adjustment, streaks are produced,
the distance between the rollers and
floor must be adjusted by altering the
number of washers (Fig. 28/6) on the
holder.
In the case of very smooth floors, e.g.
laminated screed, PVC, linoleum, etc.:
Number of washers = 2. This corresponds to a clearance of approx. 2 mm
to the floor.
In the case of very uneven floors, e.g.
poorly laid tiles (puddles form):
Number of washers = 4. This corresponds to a clearance of approx. 4 mm.
