To apply the brake, pull the control lever downwards and towards the operator. The brake is applied progressively with the downward movement of the lever.
To release the brake, push lever upwards and away from operator.
Do not apply the Parking/Secondary Brake while the loader is moving except in an emergency. Using the Parking/Secondary Brake as a service brake will cause severe damage to the system.
Applying the Parking/Secondary Brake does NOT return the transmission to Neutral if engaged or prevent engagement of the transmission from Neutral.
Do not leave the transmission engaged with the Parking/Secondary Brake applied and engine running. Release of the Parking/Secondary Brake will cause the loader to move.
Loss of pressure in the service brake air system does not automatically apply the Parking/Secondary Brake. The Parking/Secondary Brake force is proportional to the position the lever is moved to and the speed of lever movement.
