Maintenance and Care
5.4.1 Charge Batteries
Use the integrated battery charger (Fig.
6/3) to charge batteries. Proceed to
connection of the charger by means of
the mains cable (Fig. 6/4) with safety
plug. Charging batteries is recommended if at least one bar of the LDS display has extinguished after operation of
the machine. On this behalf you are requested to observe the operating instructions of the charger 88-60-2723 as
well as the operating instructions of the
battery manufacturer. In case it is intended to change the type of battery the
charger has to be adjusted only by Minuteman contract workshops.
Charge the batteries properly
before starting the machine for
the first time. Minuteman
cannot be held liable for battery damage resulting from failure to initially charge batteries.
Provide for sufficient ventilation of areas where batteries are
charged. – Explosion hazard!
5.4.2 Low Discharge Signal sender
(LDS)
The machine has been equipped with a
charge indicator to preclude the batteries from low discharge. This low discharge signal sender has been
integrated into the electronics. If other
batteries are used, readjustment of the
low discharge signal sender is required.
Only Minuteman contract
workshops are authorized to
adjust the low discharge signal
sender.
5.4.3 Maintenance of Drive Batteries
Refer to operating instructions 88-602556 for information on care of drive
batteries.
5.4.4 Remove Batteries
1. Park machine on level ground.
2. Switch off machine by key switch.
3. Open empty recovery tank (Fig. 6/7)
and secure by support (Fig. 6/8).
4. Disconnect battery connector (Fig. 6/
5).
5. Disconnect battery connection cables.
6. Remove batteries.
5.4.5 Install Batteries
Due to alteration of the center
of gravity, only use batteries as
released and at the prescribed
position only.
1. Switch off machine by key switch.
2. Open empty recovery tank (Fig. 6/7)
and secure by support (Fig. 6/8).
3. Place batteries into trough according
to figure.
4. Connect battery poles and enclosed
connecting cables according to wiring diagram (Fig. 6/9). Provide for
tight fitting and grease poles.
5.4.6 Disposal of Batteries
Used batteries labelled by the recycling
sign contain re-usable substances.
Such batteries must not be added to
normal household waste. Obtain local
information for the proper disposal of
used batteries.

(Fig. 7/2).
Alternatively, filling of the machine via
quick coupling (Fig. 7/6) is available.
Before doing so, connect the filling hose
of the dosage unit and the quick coupling. The floater valve automatically
closes after the maximum filling level
has been attained.
(Refer to specific operating instructions
for information on operation of the dosage unit)
The maximum admissible service pressure of the floater unit is 87psi.
5.5.3 Solution Filter
Check solution filter (Fig. 7/4) at weekly
intervals and clean or replace if required.
Only clean solution filter when
the solution tank is empty.
1. Empty solution tank (Fig. 7/1), see
paragraph 5.5.2.
2. Unscrew filter cap.
3. Remove the filter element from the
filter case for cleaning. Replace if required.
4. Re-install filter element and filter
cap.
5.5.2 Empty solution tank
Park vehicle such that the fill level hose
(Fig. 7/3) is located above the drain
aperture in the floor. Take fill level hose
from holder and remove lid.

5.8.3
Adjusting the Sealing Strips
Angle Adjustment
The angle adjustment is the decisive
factor in ensuring that the sealing strips
on the squeegee lie evenly on the floor.
1. Park the machine on a level surface
and lower the squeegee.
2. Loosen the srews on the eccentric
wheel (Fig. 11/1) and adjust the
squeegee using the eccentric wheel
(SW13) so that the ends of the
sealing strips still have contact with
the floor.
Figure A: Turn the eccentric wheel in
the front top position: The clearance
between sealing strip and floor is reduced in the centre.
Figure B: Turn the eccentric wheel in
the behind top position: The clearance between sealing strip and floor is
increased in the centre.
3. Switch the machine on and check
the suction pattern. When the machine is in operation, the entire surface
of the sealing strips (centre and outer areas) must be applied as evenly
as possible.
4. Tighten the srews on the eccentric
wheel at 5 lb ft.

Maintenance and Care
Height Adjustment
The factory default height adjustment is
2mm (see illustration). If streaks are
produced, despite an optimum angle
adjustment, the clearance between the
rollers and floor must be adjusted by
changing the number of washers on the
holder.
Try 2mm configuration in the case of very
smooth floors, e.g. finished floors, PVC,
linoleum, etc. (2 washers).
Try 3mm configuration in the case of
uneven floors, e.g. grouted tile, etc.
(3 washers).
Try 4mm configuration in cases of very
uneven floors, e.g. poorly laid tiles (water
does not run off) (4 washers).

Keep the extra washers by
installing them above the bracket
as shown.
