Personal injury or death could result when towing a disabled machine incorrectly.Block the machine to prevent movement before releasing the brakes. The machine can roll free if it is not blocked.Follow the recommendations below, to properly perform the towing procedure.
This machine is equipped with spring applied, air pressure released brakes. If the engine or pressure air system are inoperable, the parking brakes are applied and the machine cannot be moved.These towing instructions are for moving a disabled machine a short distance, only a few meters (feet) at low speed, no faster than 2 km/h (1.2 mph), to a convenient location for repair. These instructions are for emergencies only. Always haul the machine if long distance moving is required.Shielding must be provided on both machines, to protect the operator if the tow line or bar should break.Do not allow an operator on the machine being towed, unless the operator can control the steering and/or braking.Before towing, make sure the tow line or bar is in good condition and has enough strength for the towing situation involved. Use a towing line or bar with a strength of at least 1.5 times the gross weight of the towing machine, for a disabled machine stuck in mud or when towing on a grade.Do not use a chain for pulling. A chain link can break causing possible personal injury. Use a wire rope cable with loop or ring ends. Use an observer in a harmless position to stop the pulling procedure if the cable starts to break or unravel. Stop pulling whenever the pulling machine moves without moving the towed machine.Keep the tow line angle to a minimum. Do not exceed a 30° angle from the straight ahead position.Quick machine movement could overload the tow line or bar and cause it to break. Gradual and smooth machine movement will work better.Normally, the towing machine should be as large as the disabled machine. Satisfy yourself that the towing machine has enough brake capacity, weight and power, to control both machines for the grade and distance involved.To provide sufficient control and braking when moving a disabled machine downhill, a larger towing machine or additional machines connected to the rear could be required. This will prevent it from rolling uncontrolled.All different situation requirements cannot be given, as minimal towing machine capacity is required on smooth level surfaces to maximum on inclines or poor surface conditions.Any towed machine, when loaded, must be equipped with its own brake system operable from the operator's compartment.Consult your Caterpillar dealer for towing a disabled machine.Engine Running
If the power train and the steering system are operable, and the engine is running, the machine can be towed a SHORT DISTANCE, pulled out of mud or to the side of the road.The operator on the towed machine MUST steer in the direction of the tow line.Make certain, that all instructions outlined in this topic Towing Information are carefully and exactly followed.Engine Stopped
Perform the following steps before towing the machine with the engine stopped. 1.
