DAILY WALK AROUND INSPECTION
Look for conditions that could hinder performance or safety, such as (but not limited to) oil/coolant/fuel leakage, blocked vents, loose/missing hardware, and electrical connections.
Visually inspect the fan belt for cracks, fraying, stretching, and verify the belt is properly seated in the pulley grooves. Replace the belt according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
Note: At the 500 hour/12 month service interval, it is recommended that the belt be removed and checked for wear. While the belt is removed, inspect pulleys and bearings. Rotate and feel for hard turning or unusual sounds. If pulleys or bearings need replacement, contact the engine manufacturer.
NOTICE! Failure to perform a daily inspection may result in serious damage to the prime mover.
