How to take care of your FARMA/BIGAB in the cold conditions

The recommended ambient working temperature for this machine is -30°C to +40°C. Note that when working in low or high temperatures, the level of wear and stress on seals and hoses increases. The durability of the steel is also impaired, and cracks can occur.
When working under extreme conditions, work with smaller loads than normal in order to prevent damage.

When working in cold conditions, always allow the hydraulic fluid to circulate freely for a number of minutes. Then operate each function a number of times to allow seals and hoses to soften up before applying full pressure.
