- Park the machine on level ground. For the recommended procedure, refer to the Operation and Maintenance Manual, "Stopping the Machine" for the machine that is being serviced.
- In order to allow the engine to gradually cool, operate the engine at low idle for three minutes.
Stopping the engine immediately after it has been working under load can result in overheating and accelerated wear of the engine components.
If the engine has been operating at high rpm and/or high loads, run at low idle for at least three minutes to reduce and stabilize internal engine temperature before stopping the engine.
Avoiding hot engine shutdowns will maximize turbocharger shaft and bearing life.
- Turn engine start switch (1) to the OFF position in order to stop the engine.
- If the machine is parked, block the wheels.
Never turn the battery disconnect switch key to OFF with the engine running. Electrical system damage could result.
