The Muirhead® Incline Shutdown Systems have been designed to warn machine operators that the machine they are operating is on a dangerous incline (at angles over 35° or 60°). The operator will be alerted via an audible and visual warning for a pre-set time after which the engine will be shutdown. The time delay prior to shutdown is switch selectable between 5, 6, 15 and 25 seconds. The system has an override switch incorporated to enable the operator to override the system before it has shut down in an over inclined state.
The incline shutdown systems provide the operator with enough early warning to prevent machine rollovers, serious injuries and machine damage.
