Routine service is arguably the most important part of preventative maintenance for a skid steer loader or other compact construction machine. Fortunately, much of today’s Cat® equipment includes features that make it easy to track when service has been performed, and alert you when maintenance is necessary. Cat D-series skid steer loaders feature a built-in reminder light that does just that. Once service has been performed, the operator must then reset the light to turn the alert off and initiate a new maintenance cycle.
Resetting the service reminder light on a Cat skid steer loader is easy, as the following video demonstrates. To do so, go into the service maintenance interval screen in the machine’s onboard computer. Press the button directly below the gear icon, select the component that was serviced and press the reset button. That’s all there is to it!
