Nitrogen gas pressure varies with the temperature. To obtain the most accurate nitrogen charge, the temperature of the accumulator must be identical to the air temperature around the accumulator.Note: Adjust the pressure for ambient conditions, as required. Refer to the following table for the accumulator precharge pressure/temperature relationship.

The accumulator stores hydraulic oil pressure that can be used to lower the implements when the engine is off. The accumulator is located on the pilot manifold.The following procedure will determine if the accumulator for the pilot system is charged to the appropriate pressure.Required Tools

Move the machine to a smooth horizontal location.
Engage the parking brake.
Lower all of the implements.
Stop the engine.
Turn the key to the ON position. Make sure that the implement lockout switch is turned to the UNLOCKED position. Move the implement control levers to all positions several times in order to release any pressure in the hydraulic system.

Attach tooling (B) to pressure tap (1) located by the filter.Test Procedure (Accumulator Charge Pressure)
Start the engine. Warm the hydraulic oil to a minimum temperature of 65° C (150° F).
Operate the engine at HIGH IDLE.
Exercise the implement hydraulics. At the accumulator, the pilot pressure at tooling (1) should be approximately 3585 kPa (520 psi).Note: There is no test for checking the actual charge pressure of the accumulator on the machine.Charging Procedure - Accumulator Charge
Refer to Special Instruction, REHS5464, "Accumulator Discharging and Charging Procedures".
Illustration 3 g02788256
The accumulator is located underneath the operator in the cab. Charging valve (2) is located on the top of the accumulator.Note: Do not attempt to charge the accumulator until all pressure has been removed from the pilot accumulator.
When all of the adjustments are complete, remove all tooling and reinstall all guards.
