wire.
•Fire from the pipes:
Make sure that the clamps, guards and
cushions of the hoses and tubes are
securely fixed. If not, hoses or tubes may
be damaged due to vibration or contact
with other parts during operation. This can
cause the high-pressure oil to spurt out,
resulting in the fire or injury.
•Do not perform the DPF regeneration if the
machine is surrounded by flammable items
such as plants, trees, dry grass,
wastepaper, oil and waste tires. There is a
risk of fire due to the high-temperature
exhaust gas emitted from the DPF.
DPF: Diesel Particulate Filter
Avoid fire and explosion hazards
Keep flames away from fuel, oil, grease and
antifreeze. Fuel is particularly flammable and
dangerous.
•When handling these combustible
materials, keep lit cigarettes, matches,
lighters and other flames or sources of
flames away.
•Do not smoke or permit open flames while
handling fuel or working on the fuel system.
•Do not leave the location while refilling with
fuel or oil.
•Never remove the fuel cap or add fuel
when the engine is running or still hot. Also,
do not spill the fuel on the hot surface of
the machine or the component of the
electric system.
•Clean up spilled fuel or oil immediately.
•Check for fuel, oil leak. Stop all leaks and
clean the machine before operating.
•When operating with grinder or welding,

SAFETY
GENERAL PRECAUTIONS
3.Blow off all accumulated debris near hot
engine exhaust components (turbocharger
and exhaust manifold as well as exhaust
pipes and muffler) at the completion of
each work shift or more frequently when
working in severe conditions where large
amounts of combustible debris are
present. Engine exhaust systems provide
numerous small pockets where flammable
debris can gather. Even small
accumulations close to hot exhaust
components can ignite and smolder.
4.Clean out all accumulated debris (twigs,
pine needles, branches, bark, leaves, saw
dust, small wood chips) and any other
combustible materials from inside the
machine belly pans or lower machine
structures as well as from areas in
proximity to the engine, fuel and hydraulic
oil systems no less frequently than at the
completion of each work shift.
5.Inspect the machine regularly for any signs
of diesel fuel or hydraulic system leakage.
Check for worn or damaged fuel or
hydraulic lines before starting up any
equipment.
6.Clean up any grease, diesel fuel, hydraulic
and lubricating oil accumulation and
spillage immediately.
7.Steam clean the engine, and belly pan
areas at least once a month or more
frequently when working in sever
conditions where large amounts of
combustible debris are present.
8.Use only nonflammable solutions for
cleaning the machine and components.
9.Inspect the exhaust system daily for any
signs of leakage. Check for worn,
cracked, broken or damaged pipes or
muffler. Also check for missing or
damaged bolts or clamps. Should any
exhaust leaks or defective parts be found,
repairs must be made immediately. Engine
exhaust leaks can cause fires. Do not
operate the machine until the exhaust leak
is repaired.
Fire prevention
When working in a certain environment, it is
impossible to prevent combustible debris
from collecting in the machine. This debris, in
itself, may cause a fire; however, when mixed
with fuel, oil or grease in a hot or confined
place, the danger of fire is greatly increased.
The following fire prevention guidelines
should be used to supplement the operator’s
fire prevention efforts. In no case should the
guidelines be used, or assumed, as
replacements for diligent operator efforts at
preventing fires (that include regular schedule
of cleaning and inspecting the machine as
conditions require).
The following guidelines will help to keep
your equipment up and running efficiently
and keep the risk of fire to a minimum.
1.Maintain a CHARGED fire extinguisher on
or near the machine at all times and
KNOW HOW TO USE IT.
2.Remove debris and blow out dust
regularly from side air intake areas, engine
radiator, hydraulic oil cooler, air
conditioning condenser core to prevent
overheating of the engine and hydraulics
and to maintain efficient operation of the
machine.
1-6
SAFETY
GENERAL PRECAUTIONS
10.During daily operation of the machine,
the occurrence of exhaust leaks are
usually accompanied by a change or
increase in engine exhaust noise levels.
These audible warnings cannot be
ignored. Should any exhaust leaks occur
during operation, the machine must be
shut down immediately and not put back
to work until the necessary repairs have
been completed.
11.Before starting repair work, such as
welding, the surrounding area should be
cleaned and a fire extinguisher should be
close by.
12.Do not use the machine on top of or to
push piles of burning timber. A machine
fire will likely result.
What to do if a machine fire occurs
If operating the machine when a fire occurs:
1.Lower all working attachments to the
ground.
2.Shut the engine off.
3.Exit the machine. Call for help. Be certain
to report a fire immediately.
4.At all times ensure your own personal
safety and the safety of anyone that may
be in the area. Approach any fire with
extreme caution. All fires can be very
dangerous and life threatening.
Before deciding to fight the fire, be certain
that:
1.The fire is small and not rapidly spreading.
2.There is always a clear, safe escape route.
3.You have received training in the use of
the available fire extinguishing devices and
are confident that you can operate them
effectively.
What to do to prepare for a machine fire
•Prevent the fire from happening in the first
place by ensuring that all machine systems
are frequently inspected and always well
maintained.
•Ensure that any hand held fire extinguishers
are charged and in working order. Fire
extinguishers require routine care. Follow
the manufacturer’s instructions for
inspection and maintenance shown on the
label of the fire extinguisher and in the
extinguisher manufacturer’s manual.
•Ensure that you follow all national, state /
provincial and local regulations dealing with
fire fighting in effect in your specific
geographic region.
•Ensure that all information necessary for
you to immediately contact all sources of
help (local fire department, etc) in the event
of a fire emergency is recorded and readily
available at all times.
•Be aware that engine coolant, diesel fuel or
hydraulic hoses could fail during a fire. If
this happens, hot coolant, fuel or oil could
possibly be ignited by the fire.
•If in any doubt about whether or not to fight
the fire ? DON’T. Instead stand well clear of
the fire and wait for help to arrive.

SAFETY
GENERAL PRECAUTIONS
•To use a fire extinguisher in the most
effectively way, follow the instructions
below.
· Pull the pin at the top of the extinguisher
that keeps the handle from being
pressed. Break the plastic seal as the pin
is pulled.
· Aim the nozzle at the base of the fire. Do
not aim the nozzle at the flames. In order
to put out the fire, you must extinguish
the fuel, not the flames. Hose nozzles are
often clipped to the extinguisher body.
Release the hose before taking aim.
· Squeeze the handle to release the
pressurized extinguishing agent. The
handle can be released at any time to
stop the discharge.
· Sweep from side to side at the base of
the fire until the fire is completely out or
the fire extinguisher is empty.
•Only if you can safely do so, open the
access panels to the machine in the area
of the fire.
•Failing all attempts to access the machine
compartment, discharge the extinguisher
through the mesh or any available
openings on the machine.
•Ensure that the machine and all
components have cooled down sufficiently
after a fire so that re-ignition does not
occur.
•Remain in the area until help arrives.
What to do after a machine fire has occurred
•Before returning the machine to work.
1.Ensure that the cause of the fire is
determined and all appropriate repairs
are completed.
2.Ensure that all extinguishers used in
fighting the fire are replaced or
recharged.
•Notify your equipment dealer and/or
Takeuchi Manufacturing.

SAFETY
PRECAUTIONS WHEN OPERATING
Precautions on traveling and turning
•Traveling and turning should be performed
with the bucket cylinder fully retracted and
the bucket at a height of approximately 30
cm (12 in.) from the ground.
•Avoid sudden stops, starts and turns.
Otherwise, the working equipment may
come in contact with the ground, causing
the machine to lose its balance and get
damaged or to damage the structures in
the surrounding area.
•Do not raise the safety bar while traveling.
This is dangerous, because raising the
safety bar will cause the parking brakes of
the travel motors to operate and apply the
brakes abruptly.
•Do not switch off the ignition switch while
traveling. Doing so will cause sudden
braking and is dangerous.
•Before backing up, visually check for safety
to the rear. Backing up without checking
could result in contact with a worker or
obstacle.
•If the working equipment must be operated
while traveling, do so with extra care.
•When traveling on rough terrain or when
carrying a load, lower the load and travel
slowly.
•Avoid crossing over obstacles whenever
possible. If you must do so, keep the
bucket close to the ground level and travel
slowly. Never cross obstacles which will tilt
the machine to an angle of 10° or greater.
Safety precautions when performing the
DPF regeneration
The DPF may automatically perform the

SAFETY
PRECAUTIONS WHEN OPERATING
Cautions on traveling on slopes
Do not perform any operation on a slope.
The machine may lose its balance and tip
over if the working equipment is operated on
a slope.
When traveling on slopes of 15 degrees or
more, position the heavier end of the
machine (front or back, whichever is heavier)
pointing up the slope. Also, be careful not to
tip over or slide.
•Never travel on slopes that are too steep
for the machine to maintain its stability
(maximum gradeability: 30°, lateral tipping
angle: 15°). Note that in reality, the
machine’s stability becomes lower than the
above values depending on the working
condition.
•When traveling on slopes, lower the bucket
to a height of 20 to 30 cm (8 to 12 in.)
above the ground. In emergencies, lower
the bucket to the ground and stop the
machine.
•When traveling on slopes or grades, drive
slowly in 1st (low) speed. Especially on
down slopes, slow down the engine speed
and limit the stroke length of the left control
lever to less than half. Going down a slope
at high speed may lead to loss of control.
•Stopping abruptly on a slope may result in
the machine losing its balance and tipping
over.
•Do not change directions on slopes or
traverse slopes. First return to a flat
surface, and then take an alternative path.
•The machine may slip sideways even on a
slight slope if the ground is covered with
grass or dead leaves, or when traveling on
a wet metal plate or frozen surfaces. Make
sure the machine is never positioned
sideways on slopes.
•If the machine is stalled on the slope,
return each control lever to the neutral
position before restarting the engine.

SAFETY
PRECAUTIONS WHEN OPERATING
Precautions when the lift arms are in the
float mode
•It is very dangerous to set the lift arms to
the float mode while the bucket is raised
too high, as the bucket is likely to fall.
Lower the bucket to a height of 30 cm (12
in.) or less above the ground before setting
the lift arms to the float mode.
•Do not travel forward with the lift arms in
the float mode.
Do not drive into materials at high speeds
Operate the machine on snow or ice with
extra care
•When traveling on snow or on frozen
surfaces, drive at a low speed and avoid
starting, stopping or changing directions
abruptly.
•In the snowy area, the road shoulder and
objects placed beside the road are buried
in the snow and cannot be seen. There is a
hazard of the machine tipping over or
hitting covered objects, so always carry out
operations carefully.
•If the machine enters deep snow, there is a
hazard that it may tip over or become
buried in the snow.
Be careful not to drive beyond the road
shoulder or to get trapped in a snow drift.
•With frozen ground surfaces, the ground
becomes soft when the temperature rises,
and this may cause the machine to tip
over, resulting in an operator trapped inside
the machine.
•When parking the machine on an unstable
ground, lower the bucket.
Do not move the bucket over the heads of
people
Driving at high speed into the materials you
are handling can lead to your body striking
the machine or being thrown from the
machine. Before working the material, check
the conditions of the area and work at low
speeds.
The load spilling or the bucket dropping may
occur while the bucket is over the heads of
people.
1-19
SAFETY
PRECAUTIONS WHEN OPERATING
Take care when handling unstable loads
Avoid overloading and off-center loading
Filling the bucket in excess of the rated
loading mass or loading an off-center load
could cause the machine to become
unstable and result in the machine tipping
over. Loading should be done evenly with a
load less than the rated loading mass (refer
to the table below).

SAFETY
PRECAUTIONS ON MAINTENANCE
Be careful with oil internal pressure
Pressure is maintained in the hydraulic circuit
long after the engine has been shut down.
•Completely relieve the internal pressure
before performing maintenance work.
Be careful with debris when the hammer
is being used
When using a hammer, pins may fly out or
metal particles may be scattered. This may
lead to serious injury.
•If hard metal parts such as pins, bucket
teeth or bearings are hit with a hammer,
wear protective gear such as safety
goggles and gloves.
•When hitting pins or bucket teeth, always
check that there is no one in the
surrounding area.
AG7A083
•The hydraulic oil is high enough pressure to
penetrate the skin or eyes and cause
serious injury, blindness or death.
Remember that the hydraulic oil escaping
from a small hole is almost invisible. When
checking for leaks, wear protective goggle
and thick gloves, and use a paperboard or
plywood to keep your skin from oil
spurting.
If oil penetrates the skin, it must be
surgically removed within a few hours by a
doctor familiar with this type of injury.
Release pressure before working on the
hydraulic system
Oil may spurt out if caps or filters are
removed or pipes are disconnected before
releasing the pressure in the hydraulic
system.
•Gradually loosen the vent plug to relieve
tank pressure.
•When removing plugs or screws, or when
disconnecting hoses, stand to the side and
loosen them slowly to gradually release the
internal pressure before removing.
•Oil or plug may spurt out according to the
pressure in the travel motor case. Loosen
the plug slowly and release the internal
pressure.

In the track adjuster, the grease has been
injected under high pressure. If the tension is
adjusted without following the prescribed
procedure, the grease discharge valve may
fly off, resulting in injury.
•Loosen the grease discharge valve slowly.
Do not turn it more than one turn.
•Do not put your face, arms, legs or body in
front of the grease discharge valve.
•If grease does not come out when the
grease discharge valve is loosened, the
valve is faulty. Ask a Takeuchi service agent
for repair.
AG7A090
Disconnect the battery wiring before working
on the electrical system or doing electric
welding. Disconnect the negative (–) battery
cable first. When reconnecting, connect the
negative (–) battery cable last.
Never disassemble the track adjuster

SAFETY
PRECAUTIONS ON MAINTENANCE
Use caution when handling batteries
•Batteries contain sulfuric acid which will
damage the eyes or skin in case of
contact.
· If eye contact occurs, flush immediately
with clean water and get prompt medical
attention.
· If accidentally swallowed, drink large
quantities of water or milk and call a
physician immediately.
· If acid contacts skin or clothing, wash off
immediately with a lot of water.
•Wear protective goggle and gloves when
working with batteries.
•Batteries generate flammable hydrogen
gas which may explode. Keep away from
flame, sparks, fire or lighted cigarettes.
•When checking the level of the battery
fluid, use a flashlight.
•Be sure to stop the engine by turning off
the ignition switch before inspecting or
handling the battery.
•Be careful not to let metal tools or any
metal objects come into contact with the
battery terminals and cause a short circuit.
•Loose battery terminals may result in
sparks. Be sure to fasten terminals tightly.
•Make sure the battery caps are tightened
securely.
•Do not charge a battery or jump-start the
engine if the battery is frozen; otherwise it
may explode. Warm the frozen battery to
15°C (60°F) before use.
•Do not use the battery when the fluid level
is below the lower level limit. Doing so will
hasten the deterioration of the internal
portions of the battery and shorten the
battery life. It also can cause rupturing
(explosion).
•Do not add the distilled water above the
upper level limit. Doing so could cause the
fluid to leak. This fluid can cause skin
damage if contacted, or can cause the
machine components to corrode.
•Use a dampened cloth to clean around the
fluid level line and check the fluid level. Do
not clean with a dry cloth; otherwise it
could cause static electricity to build up,
resulting in ignition or explosion.
1-33
SAFETY
PRECAUTIONS ON MAINTENANCE
Periodically replace the safety-critical
parts
•To use the machine safely for a longer
period, periodically add oil and perform
inspection and maintenance. To improving
the safely, replace the safety-critical parts
like hoses and seat belts periodically. Refer
to “Safety-critical parts to be replaced
periodically” for further details.
•The “Safety-critical parts to be replaced
periodically” are the parts which
deteriorate, wear and fatigue after repeated
use and whose properties change over
time. While these characters of these parts
could cause serious physical or personal
damage, judging the remaining life of these
part are difficult from external inspection or
the feeling when operating.
•Replace the “Safety-critical parts to be
replaced periodically” if any defect is found
from external inspection, even when they
have not reached the time specified
interval.
Jump starting with booster cables
•When starting the engine using the booster
cables, be sure to connect the cables in
the proper order described below. Wrongly
connected cables can result in sparking
and battery explosion.
· Do not allow the “machine in trouble” and
“rescue machine” to touch each other.
· Do not allow the positive (+) and negative
(–) clips of the booster cables to touch
each other or to come in contact with the
machine.
· When connecting, attach the positive
booster cable to the positive (+) terminals
first. When disconnecting, remove the
negative cable from the negative (–)
terminal (ground) first.
· Be sure to connect the clips securely.
· Connect the last clip of the booster cable
to a point as far away from the battery as
possible.
•Always wear the protective goggle and
gloves when starting the engine by using
the booster cables.
•Use the booster cables and clips of a size
suited to the capacity of battery. Do not
use damaged or corroded booster cables
and clips.
•Be sure that the battery of the “rescue
machine” has the same capacity as the
battery of the “machine in trouble”.

AIR CONDITIONER
CAUTIONS ON USE
Ventilate periodically
•When using the air conditioner over an
extended period of time, open the
windows about once each hour to let in
fresh air.
•Your eyes may become irritated if you
smoke while using the air conditioner. If this
happens, open the windows to let in fresh
air. Smoking particularly irritates the eyes
when the air conditioner is being used.
Since the humidity in the cab drops, the
cornea becomes dry.
•If the outside air is dirty, set the air
conditioner to the circulation mode.
Always maintain good visibility
Working with the dirty windows or fogged
windows restricts visibility and is dangerous.
Always clean dirt and moisture off the
windows before working.
•The windows tend to get foggy when the
humidity is high. If this happens, turn on
the air conditioner to use outside air and
the defroster to get rid of the fog.
•If the air conditioner is set to high when
using the defroster, the difference between
the external and internal temperatures
increases, resulting in frost on the outside
of the windows. If this happens, either turn
the air conditioner off or turn the
temperature control dial clockwise to
increase the internal temperature.
•Mist may blow out of the air outlets. This is
not a malfunction. When moist air passes
through the evaporator on the air
conditioner unit, water particles in the air
freeze and are emitted as mist.
Do not overcool
For health reasons, the air inside the cab
should be kept at a temperature at which
you feel a little cool when entering the cab
from outside (a difference of 5 to 6°C (41 to
43°F)). Remember to adjust the temperature
properly.
Do not turn on the air conditioner until the
engine is started
To avoid placing an excessive load on the
compressor, wait until the engine is started
and is running smoothly before turning on
the air conditioner.
Let hot air out first
If the machine has been parked in the sun,
open the windows and door to let the hot air
out of the cab before using the air
conditioner.
Caution on refrigerant (gas)
If the refrigerant comes in contact with skin
or eyes, it may cause frostbite or eye
damage. Never touch the refrigerant or
loosen the parts on the cooling circuit
If the refrigerant gas leaks, keep flames
away.
Off-season inspection
Even off season, run the air conditioner for 3
to 5 minutes at least once a week to
maintain oil in the various parts of the
compressor.

WEATHER BAND OPERATION
14 Accessing the Weather Band
Press WB (14) to directly access the weather
band mode from any other function mode.
What is the NOAA Weather Radio?
This is a nationwide system that broadcasts
local weather emergency information 24
hours a day. The U.S. network has more
than 530 stations covering the 50 states as
well as the adjacent costal waters, Puerto
Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the U.S.
Pacific Territories. Each local area has its
own transmitting station and there are a total
of seven broadcasting frequencies used:
162.400MHz (CH1), 162.425MHz (CH2),
162.450MHz (CH3), 162.475MHz (CH4),
162.500MHz (CH5), 162.525MHz (CH6) and
162.550MHz (CH7).
How many stations can I expect to receive?
Since the broadcasts are local weather and
information, the transmission power is
usually very low (much less than AM or FM
stations) so you will usually receive only one
station unless you are on the edge of two or
more broadcast signals. The most you will
receive will be two or three, and that is rare.
Is it possible I won’t receive any stations?
Depending on location, it’s possible you will
receive a very weak signal or none at all.
Also, similar to AM and FM signals, weather
band signals are subject to surrounding
conditions, weather, obstructions of the
signal by hills or mountains, etc. If no NOAA
signals are found/received, the “NO SIG”
icon will flash in the display and the tuner will
scan all seven NOAA frequencies every 30
seconds.
NOAA Weather Alert
The Weather Alert function adds an
additional level of user safety by
automatically switching from the current
function mode to weather band mode for a
minimum of 60 seconds if a NOAA warning
tone (1050 Hz) is received/detected. If no
additional warning tone is received for 60
seconds, the unit will switch back to the last
known function mode.
The Weather Alert function can be turned
“on” or “off” by the Audio/Menu key, as
described on page three. When “ON”
(default), the Weather Alert icon appears in
the display and the weather tuner remains
active, even when the radio is turned off (as
long as the power is still applied to the radio).
If a weather alert is issued, the radio will turn
on and play the announcement. for 60
seconds, then turn back off and revert to
weather alert monitor mode.
If the Weather Alert function is set to “OFF”,
no Weather Alert icon appears in the display.
The radio will not respond to any weather
alerts when it is off and will not automatically
switch to the weather band if an alert is
issued.
Note: If the unit is programmed for European
operation, the WB function will be disabled.
How will I know I am tuned to the weather
band?
When you select the weather band, the
“WB” icon will appear on the display panel,
along with the current channel indication.
Press TUN+ or TUN– to tune to each of the
seven channels until you find the weather
band station broadcasting in your area.

OPERATION
OPERATING THE MACHINE
TRAVELING THE MACHINE
•Never allow anyone to enter the
machine’s slewing radius and path.
•Signal your intention to move by
sounding the horn.
•Traveling and turning should be
performed with the bucket cylinder fully
retracted and the bucket at a height of
approximately 30 cm (12 in.) from the
ground.
•Avoid sudden stops, starts and turns.
Otherwise, the working equipment may
come in contact with the ground,
causing the machine to lose its balance
and get damaged or to damage the
structures in the surrounding area.
•Do not raise the safety bar while
traveling. This is dangerous, because
raising the safety bar will cause the
parking brakes of the travel motors to
operate and apply the brakes abruptly.
•Do not switch off the ignition switch
while traveling. Doing so will cause
sudden braking and is dangerous.
•Before backing up, visually check for
safety to the rear. Backing up without
checking could result in contact with a
worker or obstacle.
•If the working equipment must be
operated while traveling, do so with
extra care.
•When traveling on rough terrain or when
carrying a load, lower the load and
travel slowly.
•Avoid crossing over obstacles whenever
possible. If you must do so, keep the
bucket close to the ground level and
travel slowly. Never cross obstacles
which will tilt the machine to an angle of
10° or greater.
•Clear all obstacles from the path of the
machine.

CAUTIONS ON OPERATING
Cautions on using machine in water
Cautions on traveling
Traveling over obstacles (rocks, stumps, etc.)
may put a great load on the machine body
and may cause damage to it. Avoid crossing
over obstacles whenever possible. If you
must do so, keep the bucket near the
ground, travel at a low speed, and go over
the obstacle at the center of the track.
•If the rear of the machine is submerged in
water as shown in the figure above, it
causes the radiator fan to turn in water,
resulting in damage to the fan. The rear of
the machine must not be submerged.
Cautions on traveling in 2nd (High) speed
On uneven ground, maintain the low speed
and avoid starting, stopping or changing
directions abruptly.
•Allowable water depth
Use the machine in water only when the
water is up to the bottom of the chassis
(ground clearance of undercarriage).
•For those parts used in water for a long
time, apply enough grease until the old
grease is expelled.
•Never submerge the chassis in water or
sand. If submerged, contact a Takeuchi
service agent for inspection.

OPERATION
OPERATING PROCEDURES
CAUTIONS ON TRAVELING ON SLOPES
•Do not perform any operation on a
slope. The machine may lose its
balance and tip over if the working
equipment is operated on a slope.
•When traveling on a slopes of 15
degrees or more, position the heavier
end of the machine (front or back,
whichever is heavier) pointing up the
slope. Also, be careful not to tip over or
slide.
•Never travel on slopes that are too
steep for the machine to maintain its
stability (maximum gradeability: 30°,
lateral tipping angle: 15°). Note that in
reality, the machine’s stability becomes
lower than the above values depending
on the working condition.
•When traveling on slopes, lower the
bucket to a height of 20 to 30 cm (8 to
12 in.) above the ground. In
emergencies, lower the bucket to the
ground and stop the machine.
•When traveling on slopes or grades,
drive slowly in 1st (low) speed.
Especially on down slopes, slow down
the engine speed and limit the stroke
length of the left control lever to less
than half. Going down a slope at high
speed may lead to loss of control.
•Stopping abruptly on a slope may result
in the machine losing its balance and
tipping over.
•Do not change directions on slopes or
traverse slopes. First return to a flat
surface, and then take an alternative
path.
•The machine may slip sideways even on
a slight slope if the ground is covered
with grass or dead leaves, or when
traveling on a wet metal plate or frozen
surfaces. Make sure the machine is
never positioned sideways on slopes.
•If the machine is stalled on the slope,
return each control lever to the neutral

corrode the bonding of the steel cores on
the tracks, resulting in rust or peeling. If any
of these substances gets on the tracks,
immediately clean it off with water.
•Traveling and slewing on crushed rock,
extremely rough hard rock, steel beams,
scrap iron, or near the edges of steel plates
will cause damage to the rubber tracks.
•It will cause an irregular wear or damage to
the lugs, if the machine travels on irregular
surfaces such as recently paved with
asphalt, exposed to a bonfire or of hot iron
sheets under the blazing sun.
•Do not move earth in places where the
rubber tracks may slip. Doing so may
speed up lug wear.
•Traveling on riverbeds or places where
there are large numbers of boulders may
cause the stones to get caught and
damage the tracks or make the tracks
come off.
•Do not use the machine on the seashore.
The salt may corrode the steel core.

To maintain the performance and service life of the engine,
always use clean and high-quality fuel.
•To avoid freezing in cold climates, use a diesel fuel that still
functions when the temperature is at least 12°C (53.6°F) below
the lowest expected ambient temperature.
•Use a diesel fuel that has a cetane number of 45 or higher.
When operating at a very low temperature or at a high altitude,
a higher cetane number fuel will be required.
•Use fuel with sulfur content of less than 0.05 to 0.0015% by
volume. Especially in the U.S.A. and Canada, ultra-low sulfur
fuel should be used.
A higher sulfur content fuel may cause sulfuric acid corrosion
in the cylinders of the engines.
•Never mix kerosene, used engine oil, or residual fuels with the
diesel fuel.
•Poor quality fuel can reduce engine performance and / or
cause engine damage.
•Fuel additives are not recommended. Some fuel additives may
cause poor engine performance.

for a usual operation. Be sure to replace the
hydraulic oil and the return filter elements.
•Failure to replace these in time can lead to
damage to the machine and the
attachment hydraulic system. To prolong
the service life of the hydraulic devices,
properly replace the hydraulic oil and the
return filter elements according to the table

MAINTENANCE
SAFETY-CRITICAL PARTS
The material of the safety-critical part listed on the left tends to change over time and cause
wear or deterioration. It is difficult to determine the degree of deterioration at the periodic
inspection, and thus they need to be replaced with new ones after a certain time to maintain
their proper performance even if they appear in good condition. Note that regardless of the
replacement schedule, replacement must be performed immediately if a symptom of wear is
found. If a hose clamp is deformed or cracked, replace it together with the hose immediately.
When replacing the safety-critical parts, ask your sales or service dealer.
In addition to the safety-critical parts, inspect the hydraulic hoses and retighten or replace as
necessary. When replacing the hydraulic hoses, replace the O-rings and seals at the same
time.
Check the fuel and hydraulic hoses according to the periodic schedule described below.
Refer to “Maintenance”.

INSPECTING THE BATTERY FLUID LEVEL
AND REPLENISHING
•Do not use the battery when the fluid
level is below the lower level limit. Doing
so will hasten the deterioration of the
internal portions of the battery and
shorten the battery life. It also can
cause rupturing (explosion).
•Batteries generate flammable hydrogen
gas which may explode. Keep away
from flame, sparks, fire or lighted
cigarettes.
•Use a dampened cloth to clean above
the fluid level line and check the fluid
level. Do not clean with a dry cloth;
otherwise it can cause static electricity
to build up, resulting in ignition or
explosion.
•Do not use the cable if it’s connecting
terminal is loose or corroded. If used,
ignition or explosion may occur.
•Wear protective goggle and clothing
when working with batteries.
•Do not add the distilled water above the
upper level limit. Doing so could cause
the fluid to leak. This fluid can cause
skin damage if contacted, or can cause
the machine components to corrode.
•Batteries contain sulfuric acid which will
damage eyes or skin if contacted.
· If eye contact occurs, flush
immediately with clean water and get
prompt medical attention.
· If accidentally swallowed, drink large
quantities of water or milk and call a
physician immediately.
· If acid contacts skin or clothing, wash
off immediately with a lot of water.
•Be sure to secure the rear door or
radiator before working the inside.
•Do not block the exhaust hole of the
battery. An explosion could result, if
blocked.
Inspection
Turn the ignition switch to ON, and then
switch the TRIP/DATA switch to DATA to
display the battery voltage. The battery is
normal if the voltage is 12 V or more.
Refer to “Data mode display” on page 2-17.
IMPORTANT: Check the fluid level of all
cells following the steps below, even
when the fluid level can be checked using
the indicator.
Note: Under normal operating conditions,
the maintenance-free battery does not
require addition of water because of the
special plate designed to minimize fluid loss.
However, for those machines that are heavily
used or operated under severe conditions
(for example, in high ambient temperature),
the fluid level often becomes low. If that is
the case, check the fluid level of the
maintenance-free battery and add water as
needed.
1.Open the rear door.
2.Inspect the fluid level.
The fluid level must be between the upper
level line (H) and lower level line (L). If not,
add distilled water up to the line (H).
3.Check the battery terminal for looseness,
dirt and corrosion.
4.Check the exhaust holes (2) for dirt.

CLEANING THE ENGINE COOLING
SYSTEM
•Stop the engine and allow the machine
to cool down before performing
maintenance.
· The engine, muffler, radiator and many
other parts of the machine are hot
immediately after the engine is
stopped. Touching these parts will
cause burns.
· The engine coolant is also hot and
under high pressure immediately after
the engine is stopped. Be careful when
loosening the caps or plugs. Working
on the machine under these conditions
could result in burns or injuries due to
the hot coolant spurting out.
•If maintenance must be performed with
the engine running, always work as a two
person team communicating each other.
· One person must sit in the operator’s
seat so that he/she can immediately
stop the engine when necessary. He/
she must take care not to touch the
lever or pedal unless necessary.
· The one who performs maintenance
must make sure to keep his/her body
or clothing away from the moving part
of the machine.

TOWING
TOWING
When towing, serious injury or death
could result, if performed incorrectly or
the wire rope being used is inappropriate
or not properly inspected.
•It becomes dangerous if the wire rope
breaks or becomes disengaged. Use a
wire rope appropriate for the required
tractive force.
•Do not use a wire rope that is kinked,
twisted or otherwise damaged.
•Do not apply heavy loads abruptly to
the wire rope.
•Wear safety gloves when handling the
wire rope.
•Make sure there is an operator on the
machine being towed as well as on the
machine that is towing.
•Never tow on slopes.
•Do not let anyone come near to the wire
rope while towing.
IMPORTANT: Do not tow a machine if its
engine does not start or if the machine
does not run. Doing so could damage the
machine being towed.
IMPORTANT: Be sure to follow the steps
below closely when towing. Failure to
heed even one of the steps may cause
damage to the hooks (1).

GENERAL PRECAUTIONS
GENERAL PRECAUTIONS
CAUTIONS WHEN INSTALLING
ATTACHMENTS
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Be sure to perform a test operation after an
optional or other special attachment has
been replaced. Inspect the hydraulic oil level
and recharge it as necessary. Consult your
sales or service dealer for detailed
procedures on installing/removing
attachments.
When removing or installing an attachment
or optional part, take the following
precautions.
•Consult with Takeuchi before installing
an optional attachment.
•Do not use any attachments not approved
by Takeuchi. Doing so may cause safety
problems. Or, it may adversely affect the
machine’s operation or service life.
•We will not be held responsible for any
injuries, accidents or damage to its
products caused by the use by a nonapproved attachment.
•Select a firm, level work area. Also, be
sure to park in a well ventilated place.
•Clear obstacles and dangerous objects,
and clean up spilled fuel immediately.
•When it is necessary to temporally place
a heavy object or an attachment on the
ground during removal or installation, be
sure to place it in a stable position.
•Use the proper procedure when
mounting an attachment; otherwise
serious damage could result. Consult
your sales or service dealer for help.
•When hoisting, be sure to designate a
person to act as a signalman.
Follow the instructions of the signalman
regarding the procedure and measures.
•Keep everyone out of the area when
hoisting. There is a hazard of objects
falling or contacting with people in the
area.
•Use a crane to move heavy objects (25
kg (55 lb.) or greater).
•Before removing a heavy object, be sure
to put a support to it. When lifting with a
crane, pay attention to the center of
gravity of the load to keep the machine
in balance.
•Do not operate the machine while the
load is lifted by a crane stand.
8-2
OPTIONS
GENERAL PRECAUTIONS
CAUTIONS WHEN OPERATING
ATTACHMENTS
•Turning on slopes
•When a heavy attachment is installed,
the braking time (distance a machine
will travel from the point where its
brakes are fully applied to when it
comes to a complete stop) gets longer.
This increases the accident risk.
Operate the machine allowing for a
sufficient space around the attachment.
Also, be aware that the spontaneous
drop (the gradual dropping of the
attachment under its own weight when
it is stopped in midair) gets larger as the
attachment gets heavier.
•The machine can tip over more easily in
the lateral direction than in the
longitudinal direction.
· Do not turn sideways when the
attachment is heavily loaded. In
particular, do not turn sideways on
slopes.
Heavy attachments reduce stability of the
machine. The machine may tip over if it
loses the balance when traveling or
slewing on slopes.
Never perform the operations listed below
as they are extremely dangerous.
•Traveling down the slopes with the
attachment raised
•Traveling across slopes

REPLACING THE BUCKET OR
ATTACHMENT
•Use only the attachments
recommended by us. Using the
attachments not approved by us may
cause safety problems. Also, it may
adversely affect the machine’s operation
or service life.
•Before performing maintenance or
repairs under the machine, lower all
moveable working equipment to the
ground or in the lowermost position.
3.Tilt the quick-hitch (3) forward.
For the installation and removal of the
standard bucket provided by us, follow the
procedure below. For the other attachments,
consult Takeuchi or one of our service
agents.
Installation
Before installing a bucket, clean the
connecting sections of the bucket (1) and the
quick-hitch (3) and their surrounding area.
1.Sit in the operator’s seat, lower the safety
bar, and then start the engine.
4.Slowly move the machine forward and
raise the lift arms. Engage the wedgeshaped top edge of the quick-hitch (3)
onto the bucket (1) upper part (quick-hitch
mount).
2.Open the cover and press the side of
the switch (5) to unlock the quick-hitch.
5.Tilt the quick-hitch (3) backward while
lifting the bucket (1) off the ground. The
quick-hitch (3) will slide into position.

OPTIONS
HYDRAULIC QUICK-HITCH
Note: This device works as a safety device
to prevent accidental activation of the
attachment or hydraulic quick-hitch installed.
When the attachment hoses are connected
to the quick-coupler, the plate is pushed to
turn on the switch, which prevents the
hydraulic quick-hitch from being activated
even when the lock/unlock switch on the
hydraulic quick-hitch is pressed. When the
hydraulic quick-hitch needs to be activated,
disconnect all hoses from the quick-coupler.
6.Press the side of the switch (5) to lock
the quick-hitch and the bucket.
Removal
1.Keep the bucket at the height of 25 to 50
mm (1 to 2 in.) above the ground.
2.Open the cover and press the side of
the switch (5) to unlock the quick-hitch.
7.Check that the tips of the pins (4) are
projecting through the bracket hole on the
bucket to indicate that the latch is properly
engaged.
8.If the pins (4) do not come down to the
lock position, do not continue working;
disconnect the quick-hitch and
determined the cause instead.

Releasing residual pressure
•Oil may spurt out if the caps or filters
are removed or pipes disconnected
before releasing the pressure in the
hydraulic system.
· When removing plugs or screws, or
when disconnecting hoses, stand to
the side and loosen them slowly to
gradually release the internal pressure
before removing.
•Do not release pressure:
· When the attachment is not in the rest
position.
· During operation of the attachment.
(Due to danger of unexpected
movement of the attachment)
•Do not couple or uncouple when there
is a flow or pump pressure in the circuit.
Disconnection or connection is allowed
only when there is no residual pressure.
•Hydraulic fluid, tubes, fittings and
quick-couplers can get hot when
running machine and attachments. Be
careful when connecting and
disconnecting quick-couplers.
