There are several specific safety messages on this machine. The exact location of the hazards and the description of the hazards are reviewed in this section. Please become familiarized with all safety messages.

Make sure that all of the safety messages are legible. Clean the safety messages or replace the safety messages if you cannot read the words. Replace the illustrations if the illustrations are not legible. When you clean the safety messages, use a cloth, water, and soap. Do not use solvent, gasoline, or other harsh chemicals to clean the safety messages. Solvents, gasoline, or harsh chemicals could loosen the adhesive that secures the safety message. Loose adhesive will allow the safety message to fall.

This warning is located near the articulation joint on the cover for the parking brake.

------ WARNING! ------

Before you manually release the parking brake, be sure to stop the engine and block the wheels in order to prevent machine movement, which could result in personal injury.

Before disassembling the brake, relieve the brake oil pressure by repeatedly applying the brakes until the brake oil pressure gauge indicates zero.

Refer to Operation and Maintenance Manual, "Parking Brake Manual Release" for the proper procedure.


Do Not Weld or Drill on the ROPS (7)



Illustration 9g00944234

This warning label is located on the outside of the cab on the left side below the window.

Structural damage, an overturn, modification, alteration, or improper repair can impair this structure's protection capability thereby voiding this certification. Do not weld on or drill holes in the structure. Consult a AVSpare dealer to determine this structure's limitations without voiding its certification.


"Rollover Protective Structure (ROPS) and Falling Object Protective Structure (FOPS) Certification"

"The structure, when properly installed on a machine which is not altered to exceed the certification test mass meets, at the time of installation, criteria established by:SAE J396, SAE J1040 April 88, ISO 3471 1986, ISO 3471 1994, SAE J231 January 81 and ISO 3449 1992LEVEL II."

Improper Connections of The Jump Start Cable (8)



Illustration 10g01370909

This warning label is located in the battery compartment.

------ WARNING! ------

There is limited battery access. Jump starting at the battery, or improper jumper cable connections at the starter, can cause explosion resulting in personal injury.

Do not jump start the machine at the battery. Use the remote starting receptacle or jump start to the positive battery post on the starter.

If remote starting receptacle can not be used, jumper cables may be used at the starter. Always connect the positive (+) cable to positive (+) terminal of the starter and connect negative (−) cable from external source to engine block. Follow procedure from the Operation and Maintenance Manual.


Seat belt (9)



Illustration 11g01371636

This warning label is located in the cab near the cup holder.

------ WARNING! ------

A seat belt should be worn at all times during machine operation to prevent serious injury or death in the event of an accident or machine overturn. Failure to wear a seat belt during machine operation may result in serious injury or death.


Product Link (10)

This warning label is located in the cab.



Illustration 12g01370917

------ WARNING! ------

This machine is equipped with a AVSpare Product Link communication device. When electric detonators are used, this communication device should be deactivated within 12 m (40 ft) of a blast site for satellite-based systems and within 3 m (10 ft) of a blast site for cellular based systems, or within the distance mandated under applicable legal requirements. Failure to do so could cause interference with blasting operations and result in serious injury or death.

In cases where the type of Product Link module cannot be identified, AVSpare recommends that the device be disabled no less than 12 m (40 ft) from the blast perimeter.


Down Hill Travel (11)

This warning label is located in the cab on the inside of the front door post.



Illustration 13g02151383

------ WARNING! ------

This wheel loader is not equipped with a retarder and should not be used for high speed, downgrade hauling operations. If the service brakes are overused when traveling downhill, the service brakes may overheat and fail which could result in serious injury or death. When traveling downhill, downshift to the proper gear and use engine braking to prevent excessive speed buildup and excessive use of the service brakes. When using the service brakes for downhill travel, always use the right brake pedal.


Machine Warm-up (12)

This warning label is located in the cab on the right side.



Illustration 14g02958776

------ WARNING! ------

Warm up procedure is critical. If the hydraulic oil is not properly warmed, unintended machine motion may occur. Serious injury or death may result from unintended machine motion. Always ensure that personnel are clear of the machine. Complete the hydraulic oil warm-up procedure that is listed in the machine Operation and Maintenance Manual.
