Variable speed and forward and backward
When changing gears, you should first advance the throttle handle to the low-speed idle position before advancing the main clutch lever to release the main clutch. The transmission’s power input shaft stops rotating as a result of the main clutch’s tiny break. The advance or retreat lever can now be properly placed in the forward or backward position once the shift lever has been correctly moved to the necessary gear. Once in gear, the throttle handle is pulled back to increase engine speed, the main clutch is steadily engaged, and the Bulldozer begins to move.
In order to increase operating efficiency, the bulldozer should operate at its maximum speed. Nevertheless, the driver should constantly be alert to whether the engine is operating normally. The speed should be suitably adjusted if the engine is overheating and Bʟᴀᴄᴋ smoke is coming from the exhaust.
The steering clutch lever can be pulled back to separate the steering clutch when the Track Bulldozer is in motion during operation. The bulldozer then begins to turn as the crawler on the opposite side slows down. In order to turn the bulldozer sharply, you must release the steering clutch and press the matching brake pedal at the same time. Sharp turns are typically only permitted when driving in first gear. The foot shouldn’t be on the brake pedal when the brake is not being applied because doing so can wear down the brake belt and increase fuel consumption. You should step steadily on the brake pedal while the bulldozer is turning to prevent leaping. The brake pedal should be let go of first after the turn, and then the joystick.
You must select the proper gear before starting upward based on the surface, the width, and the length of the slope; you cannot switch gears while climbing. On steep slopes, lateral driving is not permitted and the bulldozer should run at a vertical angle to the edge of the mountain slope; In the event of a landslide, the blade can be immediately touched to the ground to assist the bulldozer. The blade can be properly lowered to avoid obstructing the line of sight. Brake: Stop the fuel supply immediately, lower the blade, and brake forcefully if the engine stalls while climbing a slope. The power will be returned to the engine if you don’t cut the fuel supply and slide down in the forward gear when the machine cannot be stopped on a slope. Instead, change into reverse and carefully descend to the bottom of the slope before starting.
Through cliffs or rocky beaches
Bulldozers should approach obstructions such as big soil packs or cliffs gently and at a moderate speed. When approaching the apex, the clutch should be immediately disengaged as the fuselage is going to tilt forward. The front of the bulldozer should then land slowly before the clutch is re-engaged to propel it forward. Avoid driving over obstacles at an angle and avoid pulling the steering wheel while doing so. You must plan your path ahead of time, continue driving, make as minimum steering corrections as possible along the trip, and drive with low gear and little throttle when passing a rocky beach. It is forbidden to drive in high gear and with a strong throttle on a rough, rocky beach.
