Risk management is the process of finding out what may cause an injury, deciding what may happen as a result, and doing something about it.

The steps of risk management are: • Identify the hazards to workplace health and safety arising from work activities • Assess the risks

• Determine and implement control measures to reduce risk • Monitor and review the effectiveness of the control measures IDENTIFYING HAZARDS

Prior to commencing work, all hazards related to the work tasks should be identified. The selection of the appropriate work procedure(s) will depend on the type of work procedure(s) and hazards involved. Regular safety inspections will also identify hazards and ensure that control measures are in place. RISK ASSESSMENT Risk assessment allows appropriate control measures to be developed. Once hazards have been identified, they should be assessed in terms of their potential to do harm. To assess risk, consideration should be given to probability and consequences. (SEE RISK ASSESSMENT SCORE CHART - Pg 8). RISK CONTROL Risk control is the process of eliminating or reducing risk factors. Control measures should be chosen and implemented to eliminate or reduce risk as far as practicable. When deciding on the most appropriate measures to use, practicality and acceptance of the control measures should be considered. Safe Working Procedures will be developed for all high – medium risk hazards. MONITOR AND REVIEW CONTROL MEASURES The risk identification, assessment and control process requires regular monitoring to ensure the implemented control measures perform as originally intended and continue to prevent or adequately control the risk of injury or incident. Control measures should also be checked carefully to ensure that new hazards are not created, directly or indirectly, by the original control measures.

Hydraulic fluid escaping under pressure can have sufficient force to cause injury. Keep all hoses and connections in good serviceable condition. Failure to heed may result in serious personal injury or death. Escaping hydraulic fluid under pressure can penetrate the skin causing serious injury. Avoid the hazard by relieving the pressure before disconnecting lines or performing work on the system. Make sure hydraulic fluid connections are tight and all hydraulic hoses and lines are in good condition before applying pressure to the system. Use a piece of paper or cardboard, NOT BODY PARTS , to check for suspected leaks. Wear protective gloves and safety glasses or goggles when working with hydraulic systems. DO NOT DELAY! If an accident occurs, see a doctor familiar with this type of injury immediately. Any fluid injected into the skin or eyes must be treated within a few hours or gangrene may result.

ENSURE HYDRAULIC SYSTEM IS FULLY PRIMED BEFORE USING

PRIMING HYDRAULIC SYSTEM INSTRUCTIONS

• Fully extend and retract hydraulic cylinders. • Repeat 3-4 times and hold lever extended each way for 10 to 15 seconds to release air from the system.

If problem exists hold hydraulic lever under pressure, until air is fully released from system.

IN THE EVENT OF HYDRAULIC SYSTEM FAILURE OR HYDRAULIC HOSE RUPTURE, YOU MUST FOLLOW THE STEPS SET OUT BELOW. Escaping Hydraulic fluid is dangerous and can cause serious injury or death.

STEP 4: APPLY THE LOCKOUT / TAG-OUT DEVICE. • Disconnect all hydraulic hoses from tractor remotes. • Place Lockout or Out of Service tags on all hoses. STEP 5: CONTROL THE STORED ENERGY. • Ensure no hydraulic pressure remains in system, slowly release bleed tap (if equipped), or slightly loosen one hydraulic connection on each circuit to allow any remaining fluid under pressure to be released. STEP 6: VERIFY ISOLATION OF EQUIPMENT. • Double check the steps and verify that the equipment has been shut down and has the Lock and Tag labels evident to prohibit operation. Have repairs carried out and defective parts replaced. Do not re-connect to tractor or other hydraulic power source, until system has been fully tested.

STEP 1: PREPARE FOR SHUTDOWN. • Immediately return hydraulic lever to neutral position. • Stop operating machine.

STEP 2: SHUTDOWN THE EQUIPMENT. • Use hydraulic lever to lower machine to ground (if in raised position).

STEP 3: ISOLATE THE EQUIPMENT. • Freely operate remote levers to release residual pressure from system. • If tractor is equipped place levers in float position. • Shut down tractor.

ELECTRICAL CONNECTION HOOK UP

• Ensure tractor and machine electrical connections are compatible. • Plug lead into tractor terminal. • Test lighting prior to road travel (Power not required for field work).

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

The K-Line Ag 3200 Maxx Ripper is a heavy-duty deep tillage tool designed for hard pan removal and soil fracturing. The key operating principle of the Maxx Ripper is that the roller controls the depth of the digging, and the front wheels are to remain in float during operation. When turning on headlands lift the Maxx Ripper out of the ground with the wheels, and retract the wheels when re-commencing ripping on the following row. Once the ripper has engaged the ground, put the wheel rams back into float. NOTES: • If you have problems with stalling during operation you can use the wheels and lift the ripper slightly. Put the wheels back into float when you have passed the hard area. • If you find you are using the wheels more then not during operation, you are digging too deep for the Horsepower you have. Move the Depth Pins to a shallower hole and try again.

If you have any questions please call K-Line on (02) 6340 0400.

3 . Locate the Pins above the roller bow to set the depth of the ripper. The bottom hole will rip at approximately 100mm and each hole after that will drop the ripper 50mm further.

NOTE: These are approximate measurements, and exact ripping depth will change depending on soil type and other factors.

4. The two 3x8” Rams between the drawbar and mainframe of the ripper set the angle of the main- frame to the ground when working. Use the depth stops provided to ensure that that mainframe is parallel to the ground when the ripper is digging. Once set for your depth you will not need to change this. a. These rams must run hard on the stops, so the stops are taking the weight. b. You may need to pull the ripper completely into the ground do determine how many depth-stops you need to correctly level the Ripper. c . For 300mm dig, try one silver and one red stop.

1. Kit comes partially assembled and pre-greased 2. Important, locking nut must only be tensioned with approved socket. DO NOT tighten with hammer and punch.

3. Thoroughly clean roller shaft and check for defects. 4. Run a bead of silicon along the gap in the adaptor sleeve 5. Apply ‘Lock tight’ shaft lock to roller shaft.

6. Push bearing units onto roller shaft with mounting face to the exterior, ensuring large O-Ring is 7. installed in outer groove. Set outer mounting face of bearings apart to give a measurement of only 2-4mm less than the internal measurement of the bow, to allow easy fitting of roller assembly to bow. Distance of bearing faces must not be greater than internal measurement of bow, or O-ring may be damaged when fitting. 8. Double check bearing face position measurement is correct. 9. Important; bearing assembly must be fully tensioned twice for complete seating. To do this- • (a) Remove locking washer, and fully tighten castle nut to 500ft lb / 700nm • (b) Undo castle nut and insert locking washer. 10. Re-tighten locating nut to 500ft lbs / 700nm 11. Fold locking washer down. 12. Smear some grease around outer O-Ring and slide roller assembly into bow, securing mounting bolts. 13. Ensure the O-Ring is seated correctly, and the grease nipple is accessible. 14. Bolt flange bearing to bows and secure tightly. 15. Allow 12 hours after fitting to allow sealant to set before greasing, then follow Instructions for Greasing Roller Bearings.
