I m chatting on behalf of my husband, he is in remote area and does not have access to internet. he went to receive our tractors/ excavators. and one of them is stuck inside a shipment container

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Any tips how to get it to start please? two started just fine, the third would not. the legs are stuck down

no
Mechanic: Wayne, Journeyman replied 2 years ago

HI,

Thank you for that.

No safety button.

Needs to check the battery voltage. Or turn the lights on and turn the key to start and see if the lights dim.
