Usage:




RT50 SA (8DJ),
RT50 (4XG),
RTC60 (5PF),
RT60 (5DG) Telescopic Material Handlers

It is possible for the left rear 897655 Brake Hose (1) to rub against the engine oil pan on the models listed. This will eventually damage both the brake hose and the oil pan.

Check the position of the brake hose. If contact with the oil pan is evident, inspect the brake hose and oil pan for serviceability. Replace the brake hose if necessary and repair or replace as required.

When repositioning the brake hose, loosen both end fittings, position the hose clear of the oil pan and retighten both end fittings.

When replacing the brake hose, ensure that it will clear the oil pan before fully tightening the end fittings.

NOTE: Check the position of the brake hose on routine machine inspections.
