2.0 Safety
2.1
Operator Safety
As always, when working with horses, care must be taken so that neither
the handler nor the horse is put in an unsafe position especially around new
unfamiliar equipment.
CRUSHING HAZARD !!
The TITAN Trainer is powered to an incline position (maximum angle is
8 degrees). At no time shall anything be placed under the machine since it
could be crushed when the machine returns to the level position. In
Automatic Mode, the frame UP/DOWN motion is controlled by the program,
i.e. not initiated by the operator. In the case of an Emergency Stop, the
treadmill belt will stop and the incline will not change. Once the E-stop is
reset and the power is reapplied the treadmill will return to its level position.
This crushing hazard could result in serious injury or death. Special care
shall be taken to keep children away from this machine when it is powered!!!

Model 1677-2
Publication No 1760-260-R1
PINCH HAZARD !!
The treadmill belt can travel at high speeds and is powered by a high
torque gear motor. This moving belt creates a pinch hazard as it passes
around the rolls and close to the treadmill floor at the entry end of the
treadmill. Serious injury can result if fingers or toes become trapped at
these pinch points. For this reason, the treadmill is not intended for human
use. Special care shall be taken to keep children away from this machine
when it is powered!!!!
ELECTRICAL SHOCK !!
Before opening any electrical enclosures, ensure that the power is
disconnected. Electrical shock can cause serious injury or death.
2.2
Horse Safety
Special care has been taken with the TITAN Trainer to minimize any
potential hazards for the horse. The wide ramps are covered with a non-slip
cleated belting to provide the horse with a sure-footed grip. No sharp edges
or corners are exposed where the horse could be injured. A horse shall not
be left unattended on the treadmill.
A tail strap restrains the horse from backing out of the treadmill. If the
tension in the tail strap becomes too high, the strap releases and the
treadmill stops. The tail strap release tension can be adjusted so that more
or less strap tension will cause the strap to release and the treadmill to stop.
The manual tail strap release on the left side of the machine can be
actuated even under high strap tension.

TITAN Trainer Equine Treadmill
Model 1677-2
Publication No 1760-260-R1
The horse must be cross-tied to its halter to be restrained from moving
forward. The cross-ties should keep the horse close to the tail strap to
minimize the possibility of a horse kicking over the strap and causing injury.
In the rare case that the horse was to stumble and fall, a stumble sensor
photo-beam will stop the treadmill immediately. The sensor must be
blocked, i.e. the horse standing on the treadmill, breaking the photo beam,
in order for the treadmill to be started and the beam must remain blocked at
all times during any cycle or the treadmill belt will stop.
3.0 Trainer Installation & Setup
3.1
Mechanical Installation
The TITAN Trainer is delivered fully assembled. It must be placed on a level concrete floor or pad.
Once the treadmill is in position, leveling feet on the frame at the entry end must be adjusted so that both
leveling feet and the front incline rollers are in firm contact with the floor. After adjusting the feet, the
locking nuts must be tightened to lock the adjustment screws in the position. Position the manure
collection pan under the belt at the entry end and lower the entry and exit ramps. If both ramp wheels do
not contact the floor, the ramp hinge attachment bolts can be loosened and the ramp adjusted.
3.2
Electrical Installation
The TITAN Treadmill comes complete with all electrical wiring intact. Provisions for power supply
connection have been included complete with a 3 meter cord and plug attachment (pre-installed) rated for
50amps. Also supplied loose is the 50amp rated mating receptacle. This receptacle must be installed by
the user. Please refer to local electrical codes to determine receptacle installation method and location
requirements. A 50amp, 208-230VAC, 1Ø power supply circuit is required. This circuit must be protected
at the source with short circuit and thermal protection as per local authority electrical requirements.

Adjustments
Belt Tension
The belt tension should be only tight enough so that the back side of the belt is 1 to 2 inches clear of
the floor with the incline set to “0” degrees. The non-driven front idler roll rotates about a fixed shaft. This
shaft is supported in adjustment blocks on both sides of the treadmill. These blocks can be moved
forward and back individually by loosening the 4 clamp screws and rotating the adjustment bolt to either
tighten or loosen the belt. Locking nuts on these adjustment bolts must be loosened before adjusting and
retightened when complete. This roll must be aligned so the belt tracks the center of the driven roll.
Stumble Sensor
The stumble sensor consists of a photo transmitter/receiver mounted on the right side of the machine
and a corresponding reflector mounted on the opposite side. When the photo-beam is blocked, i.e. a
horse is on the treadmill, the TITAN Trainer will operate. If the photo-beam is not blocked, i.e. no horse
or fallen horse, then the treadmill will not start or will stop if in operation. The sensor must detect a
reflected beam every 2 hours or an alarm is generated. This alarm indicates that the photosensor/reflector is not functioning either because of dust on the lenses or a damaged sensor. Dust can be
wiped off with a clean dry cloth.
Tail Strap Tension
Under high tension, the tail strap will release from the anchor point on the right side of the machine.
High strap tension causes the pivoting anchor to rotate releasing the tail strap. When the anchor pivots, a
proximity sensor is activated and the treadmill is stopped. The pivoting anchor can be reset by inserting
the reset bar (supplied with the machine) into a hole in the anchor and rotating it back to its home position.
Note that the loop in the end of the tail strap must be positioned over the anchor pin before resetting the
pivoting anchor. The reset button on the control panel must be pressed to clear the fault and the training
cycle can be resumed. The strap tension to cause the release can be increased or decreased by
tightening or loosening the clutch bolt around which the anchor rotates. Care must be taken not to over
tighten this clutch bolt or excessive strap tensions will be required to cause the strap to release. This
could cause injury to the horse.
6.2
Cleaning
The floor under the treadmill must be kept clean and free of debris. The inclining feature of the
machine requires that the wheels of the lifting frame roll on the floor as the treadmill incline angle changes.

As well the wheels on the ramps also roll on the floor when the incline changes. For these reasons it is
essential that these areas are kept clear of dirt and debris.
The treadmill ramps will become dirty and can be simply swept clear or washed with mild soap and
water.
The polycarbonate see-through side panels will become noticeably dirty from dust, sweat, hair, etc.
These panels can be cleaned with mild soap and water. No abrasive materials should be used on the
polycarbonate since the surface will be scratched.
6.3
Lubrication
Belt Lubrication
The TITAN Trainer is equipped with an automatic belt lubrication system. A level sensor in the
reservoir indicates when the reservoir requires refilling. The reservoir must be filled with TITAN Trainer
Belt Lubricant. (Note: See Appendix A for order form.) The reservoir fill cap is located under the operator
control station on the top of the side cover.
Bearing Lubrication
Roll bearings are located at each end of the idler roll and driven roll. The idler roll bearings are
mounted in the roll. Grease fitting access is gained through the access hole in the belt tension adjusting
plates. The driven roll bearing grease fittings are located on the bearing mount pillow blocks. These
bearings require grease lubrication with EP2 grease every six months.
Wheel Bearing Lubrication
Bearings on the lift arm wheels and ramp wheels are lubricated through grease fittings in the axle
bolts. These bearings require grease lubrication with EP2 grease every six months.
Gearbox and Coupling Lubrication
The gearbox oil should never have to be replaced but the level should be checked yearly. If oil is
required it must be filled with MOBIL SHC-634 or equal. The chain coupling between the gearbox and the
drive roll must be sprayed with rust preventative oil every six months.
6.4
Hydraulic Power Supply
The level of oil in the hydraulic power supply must be checked yearly. Top up as required with ESSO
NUTO 46 hydraulic oil or equal.

8.0 TITAN Trainer Report Tool
The TITAN Trainer Report Tool is software used to store, view and analyze training statistics for
horses, training on the TITAN Trainer. The report tool is comprised of two parts: a software application
interface and a database. The database contains the TITAN Trainer log information. The software
application interface retrieves the database information and formats it to display useful report summary or
chart information.
Data is transferred from the TITAN Trainer to the TITAN Trainer report tool with a USB pen drive.
The flow of information occurs from the TITAN Trainer, to the USB pen drive, to a computer and finally, to
the report tool database. When the TITAN Trainer is running, log information is stored on the USB pen
drive that is plugged into the operator interface of the trainer. The pen drive is removed from the trainer
and inserted into a computer where it is uploaded by the TITAN Trainer Report Tool. Once uploaded, the
training data resides in the report tool’s database. At this point, the training data can be displayed in
useful log summary reports or performance charts.
Tools are provided in the report tool software to upload the trainer log files, view horse performance,
and to perform maintenance operations on the report tool database. A ribbon tool bar, at the top of the
report tool software contains buttons: Performance, USB Upload, Maintenance, Backup, Exit and About:

Log Summary
The log summary is the primary means for viewing summary information within the
database. The log summary contains the following information:
Each line item represents a single run excercised by a horse. Runs are displayed for the
horses and dates that are selected in the combo boxes at the top of the screen:
Select date to filter
for a single day
Select horse to filter
items for a single horse
The horses and dates that appear in the combo boxes are dependent on each other’s
value. For example, upon selecting a date, only horses that ran on that day will appear in the
horse combo box. If a single date is chosen, a second combo box will appear below the first
date. If a second date is selected, data will display for the horses that have runs in-between
the two dates. For example, illustrated below, runs for beautiful so between December 12-14
are shown in the log summary.

USB Upload
The USB upload operation transfers training log files from the USB pen drive into the
report tool database. It is necessary to upload the training log data files before log summary
or chart information can be viewed.
Horse training data is stored on the USB pen drive when it is plugged into the side of the
TITAN Trainer operator panel. A text file containing the training data is stored on the USB
pen drive for each calendar day that the TITAN Trainer operates. Remove the USB pen
drive from the operator panel and insert it into a computer running the TITAN Trainer report
tool. Use the report tool to read the training data from the USB pen drive, transfer the files
into the database and then remove the training data from the USB pen drive. With exception,
training data for the current day will remain on the USB pen drive. As an option, training data
can be transferred from the pen drive or from any selected folder. Simply follow the prompts
in the software to select another folder. Training data is normally removed from the pen drive,
although the user may deny removal following the upload operation.
Press the ‘Upload Training Logs’ button to open a file browsing window. Select a file on
the USB pen drive and click OK to begin the uploading operation. A window will open
