Don't forget to do the "Safe Stop"
At such a busy time of year, multiple machines are likely to be operating, meaning regular switching between these may be necessary. ). While it may seem a hassle and inconvenient, it will mean that your machine is secure and safe, both for yourself and colleagues around you. Make sure that your handbrake is properly maintained and effective prior to setting out, and that your battery still holds charge and can cope with restarting whilst in the field. Doing the Safe Stop every time you leave the cab protects you (and those around you) from unintentional harm.
