2. The operating depth and width should not exceed the limitation of the machine. The safe distance between the excavator crawler
belt and the working area edge should be at least 1-1.5m.
3. Check the working device, walking parts, safety device, hydraulic components and electrical devices before starting work.
4. Clear the big rock or barrier before digging. Avoid crushing rocks, frozen soil with bucket tooth.
