Rule number one of maintaining the value and performance of compact and heavy equipment is following factory-recommended service intervals. To ensure you never go too long without inspecting and caring for your skid steer loaders or any other similar type of Cat® equipment, the equipment is designed with a reminder light that comes on when service is required at the end of a maintenance cycle. To ensure your prompt attention, the service alert will stay illuminated until maintenance has been provided, at which time it’s up to the operator to turn out the light and reset the system.
Turning off the alert light on Cat compact equipment is a straightforward process that can be accomplished in a matter of moments. Just press the button below the gear icon in the service maintenance interval screen, select the appropriate compartment and hit reset. The following video demonstrates just how easy it is to reset the service interval on a Cat D-series skid steer loader.
