HITCHING TO MACHINE

N.B. Keep body well clear when attaching tractor to machine at all times. Follow all safety precautions set out on preceding pages.

1. Adjust drawbar height to suit tractor using jack

2. Back up machine

3. Place tractor in ‘park’ position

4. Secure drawbar pin in place with lynch pin

5. Attach safety chain to machine

6. Plug in hydraulic lines into tractor remotes

7. Raise implement jacks & lock into position

UN-HITCHING

1. Stop tractor. Place in ‘park’ position.

2. Use implement jacks to raise machine slightly

(Ensure jack is securely locked in position).

3. Unplug hydraulic hoses

4. Remove drawbar pin and safety chain

5. Tractor now ready to drive away.

DO NOT REMOVE DRAWBAR PIN UNTIL ALL THREE JACKS ARE CORRECTLY POSITIONED.

DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY COULD RESULT FROM UPLIFT OF DRAWBAR

WARNING FAILURE TO OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING INSTR5UCTIONS COULD RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH

The 2500 UNIVERSAL BAR is designed to fold and unfold from the tractor seat. This is after the safety pins have been moved to the working position.

TO SET MACHINE IN WORKING POSITION

1. Remove safety pins from hydraulic lift arms.

2. Reverse carefully until both wings are extended at 90º to the direction of

travel, ensuring cable pull mechanism is fully lowered.

3. Lower harrows to ground and make sure that the cable pull dogs are

released.

4. Machine is ready for use.

TO SET MACHINE IN TRANSPORT POSITION

1. Stop tractor.

2. Lift harrows to vertical position ensuring cable pull dogs are released.

3. Drive forward as wings trail behind.

4. Stop tractor and insert safety pins in hydraulic lift arms.

Page 6 of 16

FOLDING CABLE ASSEMBLY

These ‘dogs’ lock the arms when the harrows are in working position. They release the arms when the bar is folded vertical .

1. This spring (KH009) will be firm in working position and stretched in transport position

2. This turnbuckle should be extended during fit-up, and then tightened if required when adjusting the cable length.

3. Now the cable needs to be adjusted (most likely shortened) until the front ‘dogs’ release the arms when the bar is folded vertical .

MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE & SAFETY CHECK

Conduct a safety check daily.

□ Check wheel stud tension first hour of operation or after changing of wheels.

□ Tighten wheel nuts

□ Ensure all pins (including lynch) & bolts are securely fastened.

□ Check tyre pressure (see recommended tyre pressure table).

□ Check all safety decals & safety mechanisms.

□ Check frame for fatigue.

□ Check all hydraulic hoses for wear and damage.

□ Replace if necessary.

SAFETY INSPECTION & LUBE SERVICE

Conduct a lube service & safety inspection after first 5hrs of use & each 50 hrs thereafter.

 All pins (including lynch pins) are in place.  Wheel nuts are tight & tyre pressure checked on all tyres (see recommended tyre pressure table).  Hydraulic hoses are sound and show no signs of wear.  All pivot pins are greased and keeper plate bolts are firm.  Check frame for fatigue & failure.  Ensure all appropriate safety decals are securely attached to machine & safety chains fitted (if applicable).  Instruction manual is installed on machine and caps secured.  Dismantle & repack wheel bearings with good quality grease, annually.

RISK MANAGEMENT

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 MODEL.

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.

HAZARDS

CONTROL

Crushing – when adjusting and cleaning, as machine may drop without warning

Adjusting & cleaning must only be done when machine is lowered or in transport position and only after all chains and bolts have been checked for tightness & wear in the lower position. Ensure jack is installed correctly & jack receives regular maintenance. Keep feet and body clear when operating. Ensure no personnel are between tractor & harrow bar when hitching to tractor. Machine must be lowered into working position using suitable lifting equipment before priming is effected by slightly loosening fitting/s into cylinders and operating tractor hydraulics to achieve full uninterrupted travel of cylinder several times. Then retighten hydraulic tine fittings.
