LG956 Wheel Loader. Manual - part 7



Operation & Maintenance Manual──LG956L Wheel Loader 



z  Do not drive, turn or brake suddenly and do not 


z  Never suddenly stop or lower the working 

equipment, which may throw out the materials from 

the bucket or cause the loader to turn over. 


5.4 Drive at Proper Speeds   

z  Know the characteristics of the loader, and follow the actual conditions in the working area. 

Drive at the proper speed. Select path of drive and method of machining to let the others know. 

z  Keep a low speed so as to maintain control easily at all times. 

z  Never drive fast, turn to brake suddenly on rugged, slippery or oblique ground. 

z  Slow down when passing over rough or rugged ground with blocks around, which may cause 

some problems in controlling the steering wheel. Loader may turn over if operated in the wrong 


z  Let the engine run smoothly; never drive at high speed. 

5.5 Ensure Good Visibility 

z  Slow the speed and sound the horn if necessary to let others know, and determine the proper 

direction when the visibility is bad or at a narrow crossing. 

z  Sand, dust, fog or storm may affect the visibility. Slow down when visibility is poor. When 

visibility is not good, stop working until the weather cleans. 

z  The loader is a special vehicle. Drive carefully when taking long parts which may block the 

visibility. Carefully lift, go forward and backward, 

and shift gears. Never let unauthorized people go 

into the working area or give specific directions. 

z  There may be some illusion about the height of the 

ground and the distance at night, so keep the light on 

and drive at proper speed. 

z  Keep the front and rear lighting lamp and working 

lamp on when working in dark areas.

5.6 Pay Attention to Blockages 

z  If there are blockages (roof of buildings or the door frame), keep the loader away from the 

blockages when turning or passing. 

z  Notice the environment. Slow down and check whether there are some blockages when turning or 

going through a narrow passageway. 

z  Operate carefully to prevent unstable loads when the ground is uneven and the load is not stable. 

5.7 Driving in Dangerous Conditions   

z  Do not operate when you are unsure about the 

environment. Investigate the condition of the road, 

the strength of the bridge, landform of the working 

area and all geologic features before working.   


z  Pay attention to the depth that the tires sink and the 

braking effect on muddy or soft ground. 

z  When working in water or swampland, prevent the 

bottom of the axle housing from being soaked. Slow 

down after passing through water or during rain. 

Step on the brake pedal gently and alternately to let 

the skid device dry after working in water or in rain.   

z  The clay piled on the ground or near the canal is 

usually soft. Never allow a turn over caused by the 

weight or vibration of the loader. 

z  Never drive the machine near hanging things or close to a deep ravine. The machine weight or 

vibration may cause the ground to collapse, and result in the machine turning over. 

z  Assemble anti-fall and anti-turn operator cab when working in an area where there is danger of 

falling stone and machine turnover. 

z  Continual rainy weather, earthquake and explosions can cause dangerous working conditions. 

Operate carefully in these cases.     

z  Drive at a low speed, prevent starting, braking or turning suddenly, and use the tire chain on a 

snowy road. Brake alternately. Lower the bucket to touch the ground to brake if necessary. 

z  The load should be decreased to prevent slippage when driving on snowy ground because the 

adhesive force may change greatly in the piled snow. 

Operation & Maintenance Manual──LG956L Wheel Loader 


z  The road shoulder and other road conditions can not be seen under the snow, so take care with the 

snow shovel. 


5.8 Driving safely on the Ramp 

z  Turnover or slippage may occur when driving on an abrupt hill, dyke or ramp.   

z  The bucket should be 200~300mm above the ground when driving on an abrupt hill, dyke or 

ramp. Lower the bucket and touch the ground to help brake or prevent turn over in emergency 


z  Do not turn on the ramp. Do not drive across the 

ramp or change direction which may turn over the 

machine until on the level place. 



z  Never turn on the ramp until on the level ground. 

Slow down and use a small turning angle when 

working on an abrupt hill, dyke or ramp. 

z  Go up and down the ramp rather than drive through alleyway or footpath. 

z  Choose proper gears before going down the slope and never change the speed during going down 

the slopes. 

z  Do not suddenly brake on the ramp because the center of gravity is on the front tire or rear tire. 

z  Use gear I when driving on the ramp with a full load. Go forward when driving up the ramp, go 

backward when driving down the ramp. Never turn around. 

z  Brake slowly when driving down the ramp; do not set the gearshift control lever in the position of 

the neutral gear



z  Go down the ramp slowly; never stop the engine. 

z  If the engine stops on the ramp (slope is less than 15°),step on the brake padel immediately and 

lower the bucket to the ground to help brake, use the parking brake, put the gear control lever in 

the neutral position, and then restart engine. 

z  When driving with a load, the bucket should face 

the high direction of the ramp at all times, which 

means go up forward and go down backward.

5.9 Towing 




Injury, even death may occur if the disabled machine is towed incorrectly. 


z  Follow the direction in 

CHAPTER III – 3.5.2 (7) Towing Operation

, a dangerous 

contion may be caused by using the wrong method. 

z  Wear gloves to deal with a tightwire. 

z  Before preparation for the towing confirm the signals with other people. 

z  Please contact Shandong Lingong Construction Machinery Co. Ltd. or their accredited 

representative if the engine does not start or the brake system has problems. 

z  Please tow the machine on level ground; it is dangerous to tow on a ramp. 

z  If a disabled machine is towed by an other machine, 

the tightwire should be strong enough to pull the 

weight of the towed machine. The tightwire with 

wring or radius reduction can not be used. 

z  People are not allowed to go between two 

machines when the machines are connected. 

z  Do not stand on the towing steel wires or 


z  Keep the hook of the towing machine and the towing parts in a horizontal line.
