Operation Of Aluminum Fuel Tanker Trailer for Sale in Kenya
The connection between the tractor and the aluminum fuel tanker in Kenya;
The total mass of the semi-trailer should match the maximum allowable total mass of the tractor:The front turning radius and clearance radius of the aluminum fuel tanker trailer for sale in Kenya must match the lead vehicle.
Before connecting, it should be checked to avoid the following situations:The specification of the traction pin is inconsistent with the traction saddle;
The traction height of the semi-trailer does not match the height of the traction saddle of the tractor. The forward or backward tilt of the saddle after the semi-trailer is connected to the tractor exceeds the normal allowable range (see Figure 1-1)
If the front turning radius and clearance radius of the aluminum fuel tanker trailer do not match the tractor, the tanker trailer may collide with the tractor parts when turning.

Carefully check whether there is sand, dust or other foreign matter on the working surface of the saddle of the tractor and the traction pin of the semi-trailer. Also check whether there is enough lubricating grease on the traction skateboard in Kenya.
Connection between the saddle of the tractor and the traction pin of the aluminum fuel tanker:
Adjust the support legs to make the semi-trailer traction skateboard match the height of the traction saddle. Generally, the aluminum fuel tanker trailer for sale in Kenya traction skateboard is 10mm to 30mm lower than the center position of the upper plane of the traction saddle of the tractor (see Figure 2-2) . Otherwise, not only it will not connect between the traction slide and the upper plane of the traction saddle, the traction seat, traction pins and related parts can also be damaged.

Operate the locking mechanism of the traction seat (if the traction seat is different, please refer to the instruction manual of the tractor for details) so that the locking block is open and becomes a free state. Slowly retreat the tractor until the semi-trailer traction pin enters the opening of the locking mechanism through the V-shaped opening of the traction seat. Then, the traction pin pushes the locking block to rotate to lock the traction pin. When the tractor reverses, the center of the tractor and the semi-trailer strive to keep the lines consistent. The deviation of the center lines of the two vehicles is limited to less than 40mm. The angle between the two center lines is less than 5° when fully loaded and less than 7 when not loaded. (See Figure 1-3)
Check whether the traction pin has been firmely locked by the seat locking block.
Slightly forward the tractor to check if the connection is good

Air connection for Aluminum Fuel Tanker Trailer for Sale in Kenya
Connect the two air pipe joints on the tractor to the ones on the aluminum fuel tanker trailer. The air line is connected with the air supply line of the fuel tanker trailer, while the control line of the tractor is connected with the one on the semi-trailer (the red connector is the air supply line and the yellow is the control line) in Kenya.
After the air joints are connected, unscrew the aluminum fuel tanker trailer for sale in Kenya air circuit connection separation switch on the tractor to make it in a ventilated state. Otherwise, it will not be able to supply air to the tanker trailer braking system and the braking system will not work in Kenya.
Start the engine, observe the air pressure gauge in the cab, and increase the pressure in the air storage tank of the tractor and fuel tanker trailer to the specified pressure (usually 800-850Kpa) in Kenya.
Check the air circuit for leaks and check whether the braking system is working properly.
Circuit Connection of Aluminum Fuel Tanker Trailer for Sale in Kenya
Insert the cable connection plug of the tractor into the connection socket at the front end of the aluminum fuel tanker trailer for sale in Kenya.
Check whether the electrodes are well connected, confirm whether the lights work normally, and replace the wiring of the electrodes if necessary.
ABS Connection of Aluminum Fuel Tanker Trailer for Sale
Insert the ABS cable connection plug of the towing vehicle into the ABS connection socket at the front of the aluminum fuel tanker trailer.
Check whether the ABS is in good condition.
Step on the brake pedal. The ABS indicator light on the front of the trailer will flash for about 3 seconds and then go out. Confirm that the ABS is working normally.
The Aluminum Fuel Tanker Trailers sold in Kenya are powerful.
Separation of Tractor and Aluminum Fuel Tanker Trailer for Sale in Kenya
The aluminum fuel tanker trailer for sale in Kenya and the tractor should be parked on a flat and solid ground.
Check whether the fuel tanker trailer is in park.
Operate the landing gear to make the base land on the ground and continue to rotate the crank handle so that the tanker trailer traction skateboard picks up a certain gap, at which time the tractor can be exited.
Turn off the air connection and separation switch of the aluminum fuel tanker trailer on the tractor. Then, remove the air supply and control pipe joints of the tractor from the tanker trailer.
Unplug the cable plug from the cable connection socket of the fuel tanker trailer.
Unplug the cable plug from the ABS head cable connection socket of the aluminum fuel tanker trailer.
Operate the locking mechanism of the traction seat to open the locking block.
Slowly drive the tractor forward to disengage the tractor pin from the tractor seat, thereby separating the aluminum fuel tanker trailer for sale in Kenya and the tractor.
When parking for a long time, the parking hand brake valve should be operated and the spring energy storage braking of the brake cylinder should be activated.
After separation, check whether there is any abnormality in each part of the aluminum fuel tanker trailer. Loosen the drain valve at the lower part of the air storage tank to discharge the accumulated water in the cylinder.
Driving of Aluminum Fuel Tanker Trailer for Sale in Kenya
Getting Started Prior Driving
Correctly operate the outriggers so that the feet of the outriggers leave the ground and rise to the limit position. Make sure that the height of the outriggers from the ground is no less than 320mm (when the aluminum fuel tanker trailer is fully loaded), and then hang the crank handle on the hook.
Check that the spare tire is properly placed on the lifter and the nut is tightened.
Check whether the tire pressure is the specified value.
Check whether the air pressure of the air brake system is within the specified range. Only when the air pressure of the air reservoir reaches J550 Kpalt, then it is okay to get moving.
Release the parking hand brake.
After the above procedure, you can start pulling the aluminum fuel tanker trailer for sale in Kenya. When going downhill, strictly observe the following:
When going down a long or steep slope, prevent the brake drum from overheating and try to use the engine brake of the tractor to brake.
Do not use the fuel tanker trailer braking system alone for a long time.
