Batteries give off flammable fumes that can explode.
Do not smoke when observing electrolyte levels.
Electrolyte is an acid. It can cause personal injury if
it contacts skin or eyes.
At the proper charging rate, in a moderate climate, a
battery should not require more than 1 ounce (30 cc) of
water per cell per week.
Clean the top of the batteries. Clean the posts and
coat them with GAA.
20 a Tires--Check Pressure
Use self-attaching air chuck and stand behind the
tread of a tire when inflating.
Check the tire pressure cold at operating ambient
temperature. Use a Caterpillar Part Number 9S6524 or
1P545 Tire Pressure Gauge.
Unlatch and open battery box.
Check the electrolyte level in each battery cell.
Keep the level to the bottom of the fill opening with
distilled water. Close the covers.
If you are inflating a tire in a heated area, but the
machine will operate in a cooler temperature, see the
Adjusted Inflation Pressure Chart on page 2-11.
See Tire Inflation Information Chart, page 2-11, for the
correct inflation pressure for your job conditions.
