OPERATION UNDER UNUSUAL CONDITIONS - CONTINUED
OPERATE IN SNOW AND ICE - CONTINUED
Parking. If parking on icy, slushy, wet or muddy surfaces, place boards, brush or other materials that will provide traction
underneath tires. This will guard against tires freezing to the ground or becoming pocketed in ice, and will provide some
traction when machine is started and moving again.
Fresh-water ford ONLY.
Maximum fording depth is 3.28 ft (1 m).
Check water depth in several places, thereby allowing for inconsistency of bottom. Ensure that bottom of stream is hard
enough to be forded, without exceeding maximum fording depth. Do not attempt to ford even the narrowest stream that is
more than 3.28 ft (1 m) deep.
Before fording, ensure engine is operating properly and all indicators are indicating normal operating pressures and tem-
Place transmission in 1st gear and enter water slowly.
After fording, allow engine to run for awhile to dry out any accumulated water.
Drain and dry any area where water has accumulated.
Always test service brakes after fording by operating the brake system.
