California Proposition 65

Battery posts, terminals, and related accessories contain lead and lead compounds, chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling these items.

Warning

Safety

It is possible for the Telehandler to move suddenly when the brakes are released, which could result in death, serious injury, or property damage. To prevent sudden movement of the Telehandler, place wheel chocks in front of and behind wheels before the brakes are released.

If the Telehandler is to be towed, make sure the released brake(s) can be reapplied or the tow Telehandler has the braking capacity to stop the Telehandler.

DO NOT use ether as a starting aid. Ether is flammable and can cause an explosion when starting the engine, which could result in death or serious injury. Follow the cold starting procedures and engine manufacturer’s specifications for using a starting aid.

Tires must have proper ballast. DO NOT replace foam-filled tires with pneumatic tires.

Use of pneumatic tires will severely affect

Telehandler load capacity, which could result in death, serious injury, or property damage.

Warning

Lead-acid batteries produce flammable and potentially explosive gases. To avoid death or serious injury when checking, testing, or charging batteries:

• DO NOT use smoking materials near batteries.

• Keep arcs, sparks, and open flames away from batteries.

• Provide ventilation for flammable vapors.

• Wear proper personal protective equipment, including safety glasses.

Fluid in electric storage batteries contains sulfuric acid, which is poison and could cause severe chemical burns.

Avoid all contact of fluid with eyes, skin, or clothing. Use protective gear when handling batteries. DO NOT tip a battery beyond a 45° angle in any direction.

If contact does occur, follow these First Aid suggestions:

• External contact

- Flush with water.

• Eyes

- Flush with water (including under the eyelids) for at least 15 minutes and get medical attention immedi-

Warning

Wear eye protection when starting a

Telehandler with jump start cables. Improper jump start procedures could cause the battery to explode, which could result in death or serious injury.

• Never jump start a frozen battery, as it can explode. Let the battery thaw out before charging.

• NEVER jump start the Telehandler when travel select lever is in gear, which can cause the Telehandler to lurch forward or backward, and could result in death, serious injury, or property damage.

• To avoid injury or death when jump starting with another Telehandler, make sure the two (2) Telehandlers are not touching.

• DO NOT allow jump start cable ends to contact each other.

• Connect charged battery positive (+) to stalled battery positive (+).

• Connect charged battery negative (–) to stalled

Telehandler ground. Make the connection to the stalled

Telehandler ground last.

• Connect jump start cable to stalled Telehandler ground a safe distance from the battery to prevent sparks near the battery.

• Jump start only with a power source with the same voltage as the stalled Telehandler.

• Turn off all lights and accessories on the stalled

Telehandler to prevent them from operating when the power source is connected.

• Electrolyte contains acid and could cause serious personal injury if it contacts the skin or eyes.

• Keep arcs, sparks, and open flames away from batteries.

• Provide ventilation for flammable vapors.

• Wear proper personal protective equipment, including safety glasses.

Fluid in electric storage batteries contains sulfuric acid, which is poison and could cause severe chemical burns.

Avoid all contact of fluid with eyes, skin, or clothing. Use protective gear when handling batteries. DO NOT tip a battery beyond a 45° angle in any direction.

If contact does occur, follow these First Aid suggestions:

• External contact

- Flush with water.

Operation

• Eyes

- Flush with water (including under the eyelids) for at least 15 minutes and get medical attention immediately. Flushing must begin immediately to avoid permanent eye tissue damage.

• Internal contact

- Drink large quantities of water or milk to dilute stomach contents. Do not induce vomiting.

Get medical attention immediately.

IMPORTANT - In case of internal contact, DO NOT give fluids that induce vomiting.

Wear eye protection when starting a

Telehandler with jump start cables. Improper jump start procedures could cause the battery to explode, which could result in death or serious injury.

• Never jump start a frozen battery, as it can explode. Let the battery thaw out before charging.

• NEVER jump start the Telehandler when travel select lever is in gear, which can cause the Telehandler to lurch forward or backward, and could result in death, serious injury, or property damage.

• To avoid injury or death when jump starting with another Telehandler, make sure the two (2) Telehandlers are not touching.

• DO NOT allow jump start cable ends to contact each other.

• Connect charged battery positive (+) to stalled battery positive (+).

• Connect charged battery negative (–) to stalled Telehandler ground. Make the connection to the stalled

Telehandler ground last.

• Connect jump start cable to stalled Telehandler ground a safe distance from the battery to prevent sparks near the battery.

Warning

• connection (i.e. negative cable ground first, etc.)

Electrolyte contains acid and could cause serious personal injury if it contacts the skin or eyes.

NOTE:

If the engine fails to start on the first try, wait until the engine and starter come to a complete stop before cranking the engine again.

After Extended Shutdown Or Oil Change

Follow the Normal Starting Procedure in this section. The engine will not start until the minimum cranking oil pressure is detected by the ECM. It can take more cranking time to start the engine after an extended shut down or oil change.

Caution

Do not idle for extended periods of time. Excessive idle time can cause poor engine performance.

Operating the Engine

Monitor the oil pressure and coolant temperature gauges frequently. Shut off the engine if any pressure or temperature does not meet the specifications. Continuous operation with engine coolant temperature above or below the engine coolant temperature specifications can damage the engine.

If an overheating condition starts to occur, reduce the power output of the engine by releasing the accelerator pedal or lever or shifting the transmission to a lower gear, or both, until the temperature returns to the normal operating range. If the engine temperature does not return to normal, shut off the engine, and refer to Troubleshooting Symptoms, or contact a

Cummins® Authorized Repair Location.

Caution

Release the key immediately once the motor starts. If the motor does not start, DO NOT crank the starter motor continuously for more than 15 seconds. Failure to release the key after the motor has started or continuous cranking can damage the starter motor.

• Jump start only with a power source with the same voltage as the stalled Telehandler.

• Turn off all lights and accessories on the stalled

Telehandler to prevent them from operating when the power source is connected.

• Remove the jumper cables in reverse order of their

Telehandler Travel

Steering Modes

Warning

Never use crab or four wheel (4W) steering for traveling at high speeds. Use only two wheel

(2W) steering for higher speed travel and slow the Telehandler before turning. Rapid turning using crab, four wheel (4W), or the optional two wheel rear (2WR) steering could cause tip over, which could result in death, serious injury, or property damage.

Check the turning radius around the Telehandler before making a turn, especially if using four wheel (4W) steering or two wheel rear (2WR) steering, which provide a tighter turning radius. Look over your shoulder in the direction of the turn when backing. Failure to remain aware of your

Operation Manual 56 turning radius area could result in death, serious injury, or equipment damage.

Caution

DO NOT change steering modes until Telehandler slows or comes to a complete stop. Align all four (4) wheels “straightahead”, or perpendicular to the axle, before changing steering mode. Changing steering modes without aligning all four (4) wheels may result in equipment damage.

The Telehandler includes three

STANDARD

modes of steering;

Crab, Two Wheel (2W), and Four Wheel (4W) Steering. Use the

Steering Select switch located on the dash panel to change steering modes.

The Telehandler includes three

STANDARD

modes of steering;

Crab, Two Wheel (2W), and Four Wheel (4W) Steering. Use the

Steering Select switch located on the dash panel to change steering modes.

Crab Steering

Crab steering allows all four (4) wheels to turn in the same direction as the steering wheel, allowing the Telehandler to move “sideways”.

Crab steering is useful in a congested work site to line up to a loading location.

Two Wheel Front Steering (2W)

Two wheel (2W) steering allows the front wheels to turn in the same direction as the steering wheel. The rear wheels remain in a fixed forward position. Two wheel (2W) steering is useful for traveling at higher speeds.

Four Wheel Steering (4W)

Four wheel (4W) steering allows the front wheels to turn in the same direction and the rear wheels to turn in the opposite direction of the steering wheel. The rear wheels follow the front wheel path. Four wheel (4W) steering is useful for a short turning radius and in muddy or sandy conditions.

Two Wheel Rear Steering (2WR) - OPTIONAL

OPTIONAL two wheel rear (2WR) steering allows the rear wheels to turn in the same direction as the steering wheel. The front wheels remain in a fixed forward position.

NOTE:

A separate switch is located on the right side of the dash panel to engage and disengage the optional two wheel rear (2WR) steering mode.

Operation

Allow for adequate clearance between the attachment and other objects when turning.

The attachment extends beyond the front of the Telehandler. The operator must be aware of the maximum sweep of any attachment being used, when turning, to avoid hitting personnel and other objects in the area to prevent death, serious injury, or property damage.

3. Place the travel select lever in NEUTRAL (N) and set the parking brake to ON (engaged).

4. Lower the boom and rest carriage on ground.

5. Allow the engine to idle 3 to 5 minutes before shutting it off after a full-load operation. This allows adequate cool down of pistons, cylinders, bearings, and turbocharger components.

NOTE:

The engine is equipped with an electronic control module (ECM). Ensure the Ignition Switch is turned off for a minimum of 100 seconds prior to disconnecting the continuous (unswitched) battery power supply. If the unswitched battery power supply is disconnected in less than 100 seconds after the Ignition Switch is turned off active fault codes and incorrect ECM information can occur.

6. Turn the ignition key to OFF and remove the key.

7. If the Telehandler is parked on an incline, block the wheels.

Use ASTM #2 diesel fuel with a minimum Cetane rating of

40 for better fuel economy and performance under most operating conditions.

• Use standard #2 diesel fuel for operating at temperatures

Make sure the Telehandler is level to obtain an accurate fuel level reading.

Shut off the engine.

Ground the fuel nozzle against the filler neck to avoid sparks.

Fuel Types

above 32°F (0°C).

Use a blend of #1 and #2 diesel fuel (“winterized” #2 diesel) for operating at temperatures below 32°F (0°C).

Fuels with Cetane ratings higher than 40 may be needed in higher altitude or in an extremely low temperature climate to prevent hard starts and excessive smoke.

Engine Protection System

The engine is equipped with an engine protection system. The system monitors critical engine temperatures and pressures, and logs diagnostic faults when an over or under normal condition occurs. If an out-of-range condition exists and engine derate action is to be initiated, the operator is alerted by an in-cab WARNING lamp.

The STOP ENGINE Indicator blinks or flashes when out-ofrange conditions continue to worsen. The driver must pull to the side of the road or to a safe area when it is safe to do so, to reduce the possibility of engine damage.

NOTE:

Engine power and speed will gradually be reduced, depending on the level of severity of the observed condition.

The engine protection system will not shut down the engine unless the engine protection shutdown feature has been enabled.

Refueling

Warning

Engine fuel is flammable and can cause a fire or explosion resulting in death or serious injury. DO NOT smoke while refueling and keep sparks and open flames away from the Telehandler.

Fork Ratings

Warning

DO NOT exceed Telehandler capacity of

17,000 lbs. The total rated capacity of the forks being used must equal or exceed Telehandler capacity. Forks can break causing loss of load and could result in death or serious injury.

All approved forks for this Telehandler are marked with a maximum load capacity rating (A). This rating is stamped on the left edge of the fork just below the fork pivot shaft. The rating listed is in pounds and is based upon a 24 inches load center (B). This rating specifies the maximum load capacity that the individual fork can safely carry at a maximum load center of 24 inches.

Because forks are always used in multiples, the total rating of any combination of forks will be the sum of their rated capacity. Other than block forks, all forks should be used in matched pairs. Block forks should be used in matched sets.

Maximum load capacity for this Telehandler is 17,000 lbs. The matched pair or set of forks used on this Telehandler must have the total load rating equal or exceeding 17,000 lbs. When the load rating of the Telehandler differs from the load capacity of the forks, the lower value becomes the overall load capacity.

Pick Up A Load

1. Use correct load chart to review the rated load capacity of the auxiliary attachment being used. NEVER exceed specified weights and load centers.

2. Approach the load slowly and squarely with the fork tips straight and level.

3. Adjust the spacing of the forks so they engage the pallet or load at its maximum width. NEVER use just one fork to lift a load.

4. Tilt the attachment forward so the forks hang freely on the fork shaft.

5. Insert forks under the load until the load is against the fork frame. Load should be supported in such a manner that the forks can be positioned in a resistance free manner.

6. Tilt the forks back, and raise the boom slightly to secure the load.

Operation

Carry A Load

1. Carry the load as low as possible while maintaining good ground clearance and visibility.

2. Back away slowly.

3. To travel with a load, use first gear (1) for highest torque and pulling power. NEVER travel in higher gears when carrying a load.

Place A Load

1. Before placing the load, refer to the appropriate load capacity chart to determine safe boom extension range.

2. Set the Parking Brake switch to ON (engaged).

3. Use the frame sway control to level the Telehandler.

For additional information, refer to the Frame Leveling section in this manual.

Warning

Use of the frame sway control with the boom raised above horizontal could cause tip over resulting in death or injury. Always use the frame sway control to level the Telehandler

BEFORE raising the boom above horizontal.

If the Telehandler cannot be leveled using the frame sway control, do not attempt to raise or place load. Reposition

Telehandler or have the surface leveled.

4. Align the forks at the level the load is to be placed.

5. Extend the boom slowly until the load is just above the area where it is to be placed.

6. Lower the boom until the pallet rests in position and the forks are free to retract.

7. Retract the forks slowly from under the load.

Warning

Exercise caution when moving objects containing liquids, as the load may shift during lifting and handling.

Load Shift

1. If the load shifts, stop the Telehandler immediately.

2. Lower and adjust the load to center its weight.

3. If the load shift is too great for adjustment, rearrange the load before attempting to move the Telehandler.

Elevating Personnel

Warning

Load Capacity Charts

Warning

DO NOT exceed rated capacity. Any attempt to lift or carry loads in excess of those shown on the load capacity charts could cause Telehandler tip over, loss of load, or structural damage which could result in death, serious injury, or property damage.

All load ratings shown on load capacity charts are based on the Telehandler being on firm, level ground, the forks being evenly positioned on the carriage, the load being centered on the forks, properly sized tires properly inflated and/or foam filled, and the Telehandler being in good operating condition.

Load capacity charts, located on the left side of the dash panel, are provided to assist the operator in determining how to safely operate the boom to pick up, carry, and set down a load with the Telehandler, including what angle, how high, and how far to extend the boom.

Figure 87. Load Capacity Chart

Using Load Capacity Charts

The Telehandler includes two (2) indicators to assist the operator for accurately using the load capacity charts. These indicators are the Boom Extend Letters and the Boom Angle

Indicator.

Boom extend letters are located on the left side of the boom and visible to the operator as the boom is extended. These letters indicate boom extension as it corresponds to the load capacity charts.

NOTE:

For example, when letter “A” first appears, the boom extension corresponds to the arc of line “A” throughout all the load capacity charts.

67

Figure 88. Boom Extend Letters

The boom angle indicator is located on the left side of the boom and is visible from the operator’s seat. Use the boom angle indicator to determine the boom angle when referring to load capacity charts.

Operation Manual

Operation

NOTE:

The boom angle indicator is a plumb arrow with angular graduations from -50 to +700.

Figure 89. Boom Angle Indicator.

Reading Load Capacity Charts

To accurately read the load capacity charts, you must determine three (3) things:

• Weight of the load being lifted

• Height of structure where load is to be placed

• Distance from front tires where load will be placed

Frame Leveling

Warning

Use of the frame sway control with the boom raised above horizontal could cause tip over resulting in death or injury. Always use the frame sway control to level the Telehandler

BEFORE raising the boom above horizontal.

If the Telehandler cannot be leveled using the frame sway control, do not attempt to raise or place load. Reposition

Telehandler or have the surface leveled.

The Frame Sway Y-Handle is used to level the machine before lifting any load. It controls the machine frame sway (right or left) when moved right or left accordingly.

Function Action

Frame sway right Move Y-Handle right

Frame sway left Move Y-Handle left

NOTE:

Maximum frame sway is 22° overall or 11° each direction, left and right.

A frame level indicator is mounted on the inside upper right corner of the operator’s cab. The frame level indicator allows the operator to view if the Telehandler has been positioned in a level condition. Always frame sway the Telehandler right or left until the indicator shows 0° (level).

NOTE:

Frame sway speed is automatically reduced when the boom is raised above 40°.

Engine Diagnostic Fault Codes

The electronic engine control system displays and records certain detectable fault conditions. These failures are displayed as fault codes, which make troubleshooting easier. The fault codes are retained in the ECM.

There are two types of diagnostic codes:

• Engine electronic control system fault codes inform the operator that there is a problem with the control system that requires troubleshooting.

• Information and engine protection fault codes inform the operator that the control system has detected an engine condition outside the normal operating range.

71

All fault codes recorded will either be active (fault code is presently active on the engine) or inactive (fault code was active at some time, but is not presently active).

The STOP ENGINE lamp is red and indicates the need to stop the engine as soon as it can be safely done. The engine must remain shut down until the engine can be repaired.

When illuminated, the yellow “WARNING” or “CHECK ENGINE” lamp indicates that the engine is in need of repair at the first available opportunity.

Another function of the WARNING or CHECK ENGINE lamp

(yellow lamp) is to flash for 30 seconds at key ON when one of the following occurs:

• Maintenance is required (if the Maintenance Monitor feature is enabled)

• Water in fuel is detected.

If the warning light flashes for 30 seconds at Ignition Switch

ON and water is drained from the primary water-separating fuel filter, the secondary fuel filter must be replaced.

Fault codes can be accessed using the electronic service tool or by fault code flash out.

To check for active engine electronic fuel system and engine protection system fault codes, turn the Ignition Switch OFF and move the diagnostic switch to the ON position.

Turn the vehicle Ignition Switch to the ON position.

If no active fault codes are recorded, both lights will come on and stay on.

If active fault codes are recorded, both lights will come on momentarily, then begin to flash the code numbers of the recorded fault codes.

The fault code flashes in the following sequence:

• A WARNING (amber) light flashes.

• Following a short one or two second pause, the number of the recorded fault code flashes in the STOP (red) lamp.

• There is a one or two second pause between each number.

• After the number finishes flashing in red, an amber light appears again.

The lights flash each fault code out three times before advancing to the next code. To skip to the next fault code, move the

Increment/Decrement switch, if equipped, momentarily to the increment (+) position. You can go back to the previous fault code by momentarily moving the Increment/Decrement switch, if equipped, to the decrement (-) position. If only one active fault code is recorded, the same fault code will continuously be displayed when either (+) or (-) switch is depressed.

The diagnostic switch must remain in the OFF position (shorting plug removed) while the engine is being operated for all

Operation Manual

fault codes to be logged.

The diagnostic on/off switch circuit signals the system that the operator is requesting to read any active fault code recorded in the ECM.

When the ECM receives the signal from the diagnostic

ON/OFF switch, the yellow and red warning lights come on and start flashing if any active fault code is recorded in the

ECM. If both warning lights remain on and do not flash, there are no active fault codes present.

NOTE:

The equipment must be stationary. If road speed is detected, the flashing sequence will not occur.

Turn the diagnostic switch OFF when the diagnostic system is not in use.

Boom Emergency Lowering

In the event of total loss of engine power or hydraulic pump failure with an elevated load, the situation must be properly evaluated and dealt with on an individual basis.

Contact a local Xtreme Authorized Distributor for specific instructions.

Secure the Telehandler and area by following the procedure below until the situation has been properly evaluated.

1. Clear the area around the Telehandler of all personnel.

2. Engage the parking brake switch to the ON position and

Place the sift lever in NEUTRAL.

3. Block all four wheels.

4. Section off a large area under the boom with tape to restrict any personnel from entering this potentially dangerous area.
