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.

This machine is equipped with spring applied brakes. These brakes are also oil pressure released brakes. If the engine or the system for pressure oil is inoperable, the brakes are applied and the machine cannot be moved. The machine can be moved if a brake release pump is installed.These towing instructions are for moving a disabled machine for a short distance at low speed. Move the machine at a speed of 2 km/h (1.2 mph) or less to a convenient location for repair. These instructions are only for emergencies. Always haul the machine if long distance moving is required.This machine can be towed by removing the axle shafts from the final drives. This will make the machine brakes inoperable and the machine can move freely. Refer to the machine's Service Manual or consult your Caterpillar dealer for the removal procedure for the axle shaft and for the installation procedure for the axle shaft.Shields must be provided on both machines. This will protect the operator if either the tow line or the bar breaks.Do not allow an operator to be on the machine that is being towed unless the operator can control the steering and/or the braking.Before towing, make sure that the tow line or the bar is in good condition. Make sure that the tow line or the bar has enough strength for the towing procedure that is involved. The strength of the towing line or of the bar should be at least 150 percent of the gross weight of the towing machine. This is true for a disabled machine that is stuck in the mud and for towing on a grade.For towing, only attach the tow line to the tow eyes on the frame, if equipped.Do not use a chain for pulling a disabled machine. A chain link can break. This may cause possible personal injury. Use a wire cable with ends that have loops or rings. Put an observer in a safe position in order to watch the pulling procedure. The observer can stop the procedure, if necessary. The procedure should be stopped if the cable starts to break. Also, stop the procedure if the cable starts to unravel. Stop pulling whenever the towing machine moves without moving the towed machine.Keep the tow line angle to a minimum. Do not exceed a 30 degree angle from the straight ahead position.Quick machine movement could overload the tow line or the bar. This could cause the tow line or the bar to break. Gradual, steady machine movement will be more effective.Normally, the towing machine should be as large as the disabled machine. Make sure that the
