Cab Tilting

WARNING!

The pump valve must be in the lowering position when driving. Otherwise the hydraulics may pump up the cab and cause damage.

Before cab tilting, you must switch off the engine, apply the parking brake and put the gear lever in neutral position.

Do not work under the cab when it is in the intermediate position. Always tilt the cab completely.

Do not go in front of or behind the cab during tilting.

The vehicle should be standing level during cab tilting. Never tilt the cab if the vehicle is standing on a hill with an incline greater than 10 per cent.
