A good loader operator can clearly know how to make the most of the machine when driving the loader, reduce machine wear, reduce fuel consumption, and complete the work well and quickly.

Six ways to make you a good loader operator

The following 6 tips will make you a good loader operator! Come take a look.

1. Light

When the loader is working, the heel is close to the floor of the cab, the foot plate and the accelerator pedal are kept parallel, and the gas pedal is gently pressed down.

2. Stable

When the loader is in operation, the throttle should always be steady. Under normal operating conditions, the throttle opening should be around 70~80%.

3. Leave

When the loader is working, the foot plate should be separated from the brake pedal and placed flat on the floor of the cab. It is best not to step on the brake pedal.

Loaders often work on uneven construction sites. If the foot is always on the brake pedal, the movement of the body up and down will cause the driver to step on the brake pedal carelessly.

Under normal circumstances, it is necessary to control the engine condition and shift gears by controlling the throttle deceleration.

This not only avoids overheating of the braking system caused by frequent braking, but also brings convenience to the loader’s quick speed increase.

4. Diligent

When the loader is working, especially when shoveling, the shovel should be shoveled full of materials by cyclically pulling the lifting and turning control levers under the condition of stable throttle.

The cyclical pulling of the lifting and turning bucket control lever is called “diligence”.

This process is very important and has a great impact on fuel consumption.

5. Coordination

Coordination is the organic cooperation between the lifting and the bucket control cylinder. The general shoveling process of a loader is to first place the bucket on the ground and drive smoothly to the pile.

When the bucket meets resistance when shoveling parallel to the material pile, the principle of raising the arm first and then retracting the bucket should be followed first.

This can effectively avoid resistance at the bottom of the bucket, so as to give full play to the maximum breakout force.

6, strictly prohibited

The first is strictly forbidden to blast the throttle. Regardless of whether the loader is walking or shoveling, do not step on the accelerator pedal forcefully, and always keep the accelerator control light, steady and gentle. Sufficiently reduce and reduce man-made failures in operation.

Secondly, tire skidding is strictly prohibited. When the loader is in operation, the tires will slip when the accelerator is forced to meet resistance. This phenomenon is usually caused by improper operation by the driver, which increases fuel consumption and damages tires.

The third is to strictly prohibit the rear wheel from tilting. Due to the large digging force of the loader, the driver usually shovels solid original soil and stone hills and other operations. If the operation is improper, the two rear wheels are prone to lift off the ground. The landing inertia of this tilting action will cause the blade of the bucket to break and the bucket to deform; when the rear wheel is tilted high, it will easily cause the welding of the front and rear frames and other structures to crack, and even the plate will break.

The fourth is to strictly prohibit hitting the pile. For shoveling common materials, the loader can use the second gear (seven-speed gearbox, three-speed gearbox forbidden to use the second gear). It is strictly forbidden to make inertial impact on the pile with gears above the second gear. The correct method should be to switch to gear I in time to complete a shoveling process when the bucket approaches the material pile.
