Directly in front of you is your gauges screen, where you can see:

  • Fluid temperatures

  • Engine RPM

On the touchscreen monitor, you can see real-time machine readouts. To see the full menu of available applications and features, click on the applications button — represented by three horizontal lines — in the top right corner of your monitor. Here, you can find the following:

  • Click on the Job Aids button to select which readouts the quadrants on your main screen show, such as hydraulic oil temperature, engine coolant temperature, transmission oil outlet temperature, and bucket tilt angle.

  • With the Information button, you can access your onboard operator manual and totals readouts.

  • Click on Assist to adjust implement kickouts, auto set tires, tip-off assist and autodig functions.

  • In Settings, you can adjust your application profiles. Find and change the attachments you’re using in work tool settings. You can adjust machine settings like implement, ride control and rimpull. And you can make modifications to your display settings, such as language and time.

  • Click on the Service menu for diagnostics, calibrations, parameters and more.

And on the right of your touchscreen monitor, you can find a customizable list of shortcuts.

Remember: Always refer to the Operation and Maintenance Manual, and practice safe operating procedures.
