Proper Idling

What's Regeneration in Tier 4 Machines?
  • Newer machines have filters that catch soot produced by the engine
  • These filters have self-cleaning abilities called regeneration
  • Regeneration uses heat to oxidize soot into gasses that leave the filter
  • It's a normal part of running machines equipped with diesel particulate filters and rarely gets in the way of operating

How to Properly Idle & Shut Down
  • If you're going to idle for more than a minute or two
    • In a tracked machine, all lock levers in the lock position and throttle dial at minimum
    • In a wheeled machine, transmission in neutral, parking brake applied and accelerator pedal released
  • This is the safest way
  • It also helps the machine optimize regeneration
  • If you're going to shut down, let the machine cool off for 5 minutes before turning the key
If You've Got Questions
  • Check out the Pocket & Keychain Cards
  • Ask your Supervisor
  • Ask your Distributor
