Merlo Tech Talk: Instrument Cluster Symbols

Merlo Tech Talk: Instrument Cluster Symbols

Merlo engineers have enhanced the operator’s visual notifications. There are two places symbols appear: The instrument cluster and the panel.

The instrument cluster, in front on the steering wheel on the column, tells the operator the basics, such as speed, fluid levels, rpms, gear position (if applicable.)  Along the left and right side of the screen, are columns of symbols.  When lit, these symbols Inform operators about other operational functions.

SYMBOLS ON LEFT.  WHEN LIT

  • Direction indicators: ON
  • Trailer Turning indicators (if applicable): ON
  • Tail Lights: ON
  • Low Beams: ON
  • High Beams: ON
  • Turret Not aligned.
  • Crab Steering Engaged:  To change steering mode, put in Neutral. Engage switch on the far right panel by the joystick.

SYMBOLS ON RIGHT. WHEN LIT

  • Engine Fault:  TURN OFF THE ENGINE IMMEDIATELY. Contact your dealer’s service dept. or call AMS-Merlo Service Advisors.
  • Engine Oil Pressure Low: TURN OFF ENGINE if warning light is active above 1000 rpm. Contact your dealer’s service dept. or call AMS-Merlo Service Advisors.
  • Coolant Temp light:  TURN OFF ENGINE.  Temperature is too high. Add coolant.
  • Engine Pre-Heat: ON: It’s all good!
