  • Cooling System Coolant - Change

  • ! WARNING

  • Personal injury can result from hot coolant, steam and alkali.

  • At operating temperature, engine coolant is hot and under pressure. The radiator and all lines to heaters or the engine contain hot coolant or steam. Any contact can cause severe burns.

  • Remove filler cap slowly to relieve pressure only when engine is stopped and radiator cap is cool enough to touch with your bare hand.

  • Do not attempt to tighten hose connections when the coolant is hot, the hose can come off causing burns.

  • If the coolant in the machine is changed to another type of coolant, consult your Caterpillar dealer.

  • Differential Oil - Change

  • NOTICE: Care must be taken to ensure that fluids are contained during performance of inspection, maintenance, testing, adjusting and repair of the product. Be prepared to collect the fluid with suitable containers before opening any compartment or disassembling any component containing fluids.

  • Dispose of all fluids according to local regulations and mandates.

  • Park the machine on level ground. Fully retract the boom and fully lower the boom. Move the transmission control to the NEUTRAL position and engage the parking brake. Shut off the engine.

  • Engine Valve Lash - Check

  • Maintenance is recommended by Caterpillar for engine valve lash adjustments. The maintenance for the engine valve lash is part of the lubrication and preventive maintenance schedule in order to provide maximum engine life.

  • Note: The engine valve lash should be checked at every 2000 hours or 2 years.

  • NOTICE: Only qualified service personnel should perform this maintenance. Refer to the Service Manual or your Caterpillar Dealer for the complete engine valve lash adjustment procedure.

  • ! WARNING

  • Be sure the engine cannot be started while this maintenance is being performed. To prevent possible injury, do not use the starting motor to turn the flywheel.

  • Hot engine components can cause burns. Allow additional time for the engine to cool before measuring/adjusting engine valve lash clearance.

  • NOTICE: Operation of Caterpillar Engines with improper engine valve lash adjustments will reduce the engine efficiency. This reduced efficiency could result in excessive fuel usage and/or shortened engine component life.

  • Measure the engine valve lash with the engine stopped. To obtain an accurate measurement, allow at least 20 minutes for the valves to cool to engine cylinder head and block temperature.

  • Final Drive Oil - Change

  • Work Tool - Inspect/Replace

  • In order to help minimize unexpected, costly repairs and downtime, inspections need to be carried out on a regular basis. The interval between the inspections depends on the age of the work tool and the severity of the operating conditions.

  • More frequent inspections will be required of older work tools and work tools that are used in particularly severe operating conditions.

  • To perform a proper inspection, the work tool must be thoroughly cleaned. It is impossible to inspect the work tool properly if the work tool is dirty.

  • Early detection and repair of faults will ensure continued operation of the work tool. Also, early detection and repair will improve the availability of the work tool. Repair of faults will also reduce the risk of accidents.

  • The work tool should only be repaired by a qualified Caterpillar dealer in accordance with the manufacturers recommendations. However, if you decide to carry out your own repairs, consult your Caterpillar dealer for the recommended repair techniques.

  • Inspect the work tool before the work tool is attached to the machine.
