OPERATION IN SNOW AND ON ICE CONTINUED
3. Give signals sooner.
4. Slow down sooner to give early warning of intention to stop. This will also help to avoid skidding.
5. Keep windshields, mirrors, and lights clean and free of snow and ice.
6. Select engine and ground speeds that best suit road condition (WP 0004).
1. Roll ground speed control wheel clockwise to decrease ground speed (WP 0004).
2. Partially depress brake/deceleration pedal to slow machine (WP 0004).
3. Move left joystick to HOLD position or depress brake/deceleration past detent spring (WP 0004).
4. DO NOT pump brake/deceleration pedal.
If parking on icy, slushy, wet, or muddy surfaces, place boards, brush, or other materials below tracks to help guard
against tracks freezing to the ground or becoming pocketed in ice.
END OF TASK
The D6K Dozer can ford water up to 24 in. (61 cm) deep. Observe the following precautions when fording any body
1. Check the depth of the water at its deepest point.
2. Ensure the bottom is even enough for fording.
3. DO NOT ford even the narrowest stream more than 24 in. (61 cm) deep.
4. Ensure your engine is operating at full efficiency.
5. Raise blade and ripper if equipped to maximum height.
6. Set blade angle perpendicular to machine.
1. Enter water slowly to minimize waves and backwash.
2. Speed should not exceed 4 mph (6 km/h).
3. If stalling occurs, notify Field Maintenance.
Lubricate the machine completely as soon as possible after fording.
