966G and 972G Wheel Loaders Ride Control

Travel at high speeds over rough terrain causes bucket movement and a swinging motion. The ride control system acts as a shock absorber by dampening forces from the bucket. This helps to stabilize the entire machine.

Note: To load the bucket most efficiently, place the ride control switch in the position for automatic ride control or in the OFF position during the loading cycle. When the ride control switch is in the manual position, the lift circuit is spongy and there are no capabilities for powering down. Failure to move the switch to the recommended position could result in damage to the machine.

Move switch (1) to the middle position in order to turn off the ride control system.

Manual Ride Control - Push the bottom of switch (1) in order to turn on the ride control system. Indicator (2) will come on when the ride control is activated.

When the ride control switch is in the manual position, the ride control system will be operational at all times.

Automatic Ride Control - Push the top of switch (1) in order to turn on the automatic ride control. Indicator (3) will come on when the automatic ride control is activated.

The ride control system will automatically turn on if the ground speed exceeds 9.6 km/h (6 mph). The ride control system will automatically turn off if the ground speed is less than 9.6 km/h (6 mph) and if the bucket is being operated.
