EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTION AND DATA - (CONTINUED)
Battery. The batteries are conventional 12-volt maintenance free type with a positive cable and a negative ground
cable. The batteries are connected in parallel. Each battery has a minimum 800 CCA. The cables have protective
boots at the battery end.
Alternator. Electrical power is supplied by a belt-driven 90 amp alternator mounted on the front of the engine. It
produces three-phase alternating current and voltage, rectiied to DC. The alternator does not require a cutout relay.
A current regulator is part of the alternator assembly. It determines output current according to load, such
as headlights, rear lights, etc.
Starter. A starter lockout switch prevents starter and ring gear damage when engine is running. Tractor starts
only in Park. All circuits are protected with circuit breakers and/or fuses.
The starter motor is a gear reduction type and is used to turn the engine fast enough to start the engine.
Lights and Accessories. Two headlights are on the front of the tractor. The stop/tail lights and rear backup lights
are in the rear body. The backup lights can also be used as work lights (there is a separate switch for this purpose).
Turn signal lights are below the headlights on the front and combined with taillights on the rear.
The dash panel is a NEMA 4, rain tight enclosure with automotive type instrumentation. Indicator lights are
provided to give visual status of various operations and functions. A rotary dimmer switch allows varying the back
light intensity of the instrumentation. Indicator lights are "iris" adjustable type to vary the intensity of the light.
Front and rear brakes are driven and contain wet disc packs for service brakes. Front axles are steerable.
