EQUIPMENT SAFETY GUIDELINES
Safety of the operator is one of the main concerns in designing and developing a new piece of equipment.
Designers and manufacturers build in as many safety features as possible. However, every year many
accidents occur which could have been avoided by a few seconds of thought and a more careful approach to
handling equipment. You, the operator, can avoid many accidents by observing the following precautions in this
section. To avoid personal injury, study the following precautions and insist those working with you, or for you,
follow them.
In order to provide a better view, certain photographs or illustrations in this manual may show an assembly with
a safety shield removed. However, equipment should never be operated in this condition. Keep all shields in
place. If shield removal becomes necessary for repairs, replace the shield prior to use.
Replace any CAUTION, WARNING, DANGER or instruction safety sign that is not readable or is missing.
Location of such safety signs is indicated in this booklet.
Never use alcoholic beverages or drugs which can hinder alertness or coordination while operating this
equipment. Consult your doctor about operating this machine while taking prescription medications.
Review the safety instructions with all users annually.
This equipment is dangerous to children and persons unfamiliar with its operation. The operator should be a
responsible adult familiar with farm machinery and trained in this equipment’s operations. Do not allow persons to operate or assemble this unit until they have read this manual and have developed a thorough
understanding of the safety precautions and of how it works.
To prevent injury or death, use a tractor equipped with a Roll-Over Protective System (ROPS). Do not paint
over, remove or deface any safety signs or warning signs on your equipment. Observe all safety signs and
practice the instruction on them.
Never exceed the limits of a piece of machinery. If its ability to do a job, or to do so safely, is in question –
DON’T TRY IT.
Do not modify the equipment in any way. Unauthorized modification may impair the function and/or safety and
could affect the life of the equipment.
In addition to the design and configuration of this implement, including Safety Signs and Safety Equipment,
hazard control and accident prevention are dependent upon the awareness, concern, prudence, and proper
training of personnel involved in the operation, transport, maintenance, and storage of the machine. Refer also
to Safety Messages and Operation Instructions in each of the appropriate sections of the Tractor and Loader
Manuals. Pay close attention to the Safety Signs affixed to the Tractor and the Loader.

SAFETY TRAINING
Safety is a primary concern in the design and manufacture of our products. Unfortunately, our efforts to provide safe equipment can be wiped out by a single careless act of an operator.
In addition to the design and configuration of equipment, hazard control and accident prevention are
dependent upon the awareness, concern, prudence and proper training of personnel involved in the operation,
transport, maintenance and storage of equipment.
It has been said, “The best safety device is an informed, careful operator.” We ask you to be that kind of an
operator. It is the operator’s responsibility to read and understand ALL Safety and Operating instructions in the
manual and to follow these. Accidents can be avoided.
Working with unfamiliar equipment can lead to careless injuries. Read this manual, and the manual for your
tractor, before assembly or operating, to acquaint yourself with the machines. It is the equipment owner’s
responsibility, if this machine is used by any person other than yourself, is loaned or rented, to make certain
that the operator, prior to operating:
1. Reads and understands the operator’s manuals.
2. Is instructed in safe and proper use.
Know your controls and how to stop tractor, engine, and implement quickly in an emergency. Read this manual and the one provided with your tractor.
Train all new personnel and review instructions frequently with existing workers. A person who has not read
and understood all operating and safety instructions is not qualified to operate the machine. An untrained operator exposes himself and bystanders to possible serious injury or death.
Do not allow children to operate this machine.
PREPARATION
Never operate the tractor, loader, and attachment until you have read and completely understand this manual,
the Tractor Operator’s Manual, and each of the Safety Messages found on the safety signs on the tractor,
loader, and attachment.

JDBS-433 PARTS LIST
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
(continued)
PREPARATION (continued)
Personal protection equipment including hard hat, safety glasses, safety shoes, and gloves are recommended
during assembly, installation, operation, adjustment, maintaining, repairing, removal, or moving the implement.
Do not allow long hair, loose fitting clothing or jewelry to be around moving parts.
PROLONGED EXPOSURE TO LOUD NOISE MAY CAUSE PERMANENT HEARING LOSS!
Tractors with or without equipment attached can often be noisy enough to cause permanent, partial hearing
loss. We recommend that you wear hearing protection on a full-time basis if the noise in the Operator’s position exceeds 80db. Noise over 85db on a long-term basis can cause severe hearing loss. Noise over 90db
adjacent to the Operator over a long-term basis may cause permanent, total hearing loss. NOTE: Hearing loss
from loud noise (from tractors, chain saws, radios, and other such sources close to the ear) is cumulative over
a lifetime without hope of natural recovery.
Operate the loader attachment only with a tractor equipped with an approved Roll-Over Protective System
(ROPS). Always wear your seat belt on tractors equipped with a ROPS. Serious injury or even death could
result from falling off the tractor – particularly during a turnover when the operator could be pinned under the
ROPS or the tractor. Keep foldable ROPS systems in “locked up” position at all times.
Operate only in daylight or good artificial light.
Always check to be sure the loader attachment is properly latched on the loader or that lock pins are installed.
Ensure that all safety shielding and safety signs are properly installed and in good condition.
Never permit any person other than the operator to ride or board the tractor or implement at any time. ALLOW
NO RIDERS!
The use of any loader attachment is NOT recommended on tractor with a tricycle wheel arrangement. Tricycle
type tractors are unstable for front loader use.
A heavy load can cause instability in driving a tractor. Make sure the front or rear of the tractor is properly
counter-balanced with weights. Always drive slowly – especially around turns. An unstable tractor could steer
badly and possibly tip over, causing injury or death.
OPERATIONAL SAFETY
The use of this equipment is subject to certain hazards which cannot be protected against by mechanical
means or product design. All operators of this equipment must read and understand this entire manual, paying particular attention to safety and operating instructions, prior to using. If there is something in this manual you do not understand, ask your supervisor, or your dealer, to explain it to you.

JDBS-434 PARTS LIST
OPERATIONAL SAFETY (continued)
Most accidents occur because of neglect or carelessness. Keep all helpers and bystanders at a safe distance.
REMEMBER FALLING BALES CAN ROLL OR TUMBLE.
Beware of low electrical wires when loader is raised. Serious injury or death can result if contact is made.
Always insert spears into the bale – NEVER under the bale. Failure to insert spears into bale can allow bale
to roll back when loader is raised, causing serious injury or death.
Do not handle bales that exceed the bale weight limitations of the loader. Watch for bales that are frozen to the
ground.
Carry the bale slowly and as low as possible to the ground.
Operate the loader controls smoothly, avoiding jerky operation.
When handling round bales on a slope, always approach the bale with the tractor facing uphill.
Never use the tractor/loader to stop a rolling bale.
Only use a tractor equipped with a ROPS cab or rollover protective structure. Keep foldable ROPS systems in
“locked up” position at all times. Keep seat belt fastened.
When stacking bales, ALWAYS MAKE SURE BALES ARE PLACED SO THE STACK IS STABLE.
For operator safety, always keep bale in front of tractor hood. NEVER position bale back over operator.
ALWAYS BE CAREFUL!
Always load rear of tractor first and unload last when using a front loader.
Beware of lift clearance when raising loader to maximum height.
Keep alert and watch the rear as well as the front when working with the loader.
When maneuvering close to buildings or passing through narrow areas, be sure to allow sufficient clearance
for the tractor, loader, and bale. Drive slowly.
Operate loader from operator’s seat only. Remain at controls until operating cycle is complete.
Stop loader gradually when lowering or lifting loads.

OPERATIONAL SAFETY (continued)
Allow for additional length of loader and bale on tractor while turning.
Never allow anyone to walk or work under a raised loader. Do not use loader for a work platform. Do not lift or
carry anyone on loader or in bucket or on attachment.
Set both front and rear tractor wheels wide for increased stability.
Be sure that people, livestock, or pets are not standing near the machine while operating.
ALWAYS lower loader to the ground or block securely before performing any maintenance work.
Stay alert for holes, rocks and roots in the terrain and other hidden hazards. Keep away from drop-offs.
Use extreme care and maintain minimum ground speed when transporting on hillside, over rough ground and
when operating close to ditches or fences. Be careful when turning sharp corners.
Reduce speed on slopes and sharp turns to minimize tipping or loss of control. Be careful when changing
directions on slopes. Do not start or stop suddenly on slopes. Avoid operation on steep slopes.
When using a unit, a minimum 20% of tractor and equipment weight must be on tractor front wheels. Without
this weight, tractor could tip over, causing personal injury or death. The weight may be attained with a front end
loader, front wheel weights, ballast in tires of front tractor weights. When attaining a minimum 20% of tractor
and equipment weight on the front wheels, you must not exceed the ROPS weight certification. Weigh the tractor and equipment. Do not guess or estimate!
Avoid excessive speed during operation.
ALWAYS lower spear points to the ground when parking tractor. Raised spear points could cause injury to
people or livestock.
Always shut off tractor and shift to “Park” or set brakes when leaving tractor. Always lower bucket or attachment
to ground. Remove key when leaving tractor unattended.
Before operating equipment: if you have any questions regarding the proper assembly or operation, contact
your dealer or representative.

TRANSPORT SAFETY
Comply with state and local laws governing highway safety and movement of farm machinery on public roads.
The use of flashing amber lights is acceptable in most localities. However, some localities prohibit their use.
Local laws should be checked for all highway lighting and marking requirements.
When driving the tractor and equipment on the road or highway under 20 mph (32 kph) at night or during the
day, use flashing amber warning lights and a slow moving vehicle (SMV) identification emblem.
Always be sure the implement is in the proper raised position for transport.
Reduce speed when transporting mounted implements to avoid bouncing and momentary loss of steering
control.
Plan your route to avoid heavy traffic.
Make sure large round bales transported on tractor rear 3 pt. hitch do not obstruct visibility of tractor’s flashing
lights or SMV sign.
When transporting large round bales, keep load as low as practical to maximize tractor stability.
Transporting large round bales on front loaders can limit visibility. Keep load low and go slow if visibility is
obstructed. Always use extra care.
Do not exceed 20 mph (32 kph). Reduce speed on rough roads and surfaces.
Do not drink and drive!
Watch for traffic when operating near or crossing roadways.
Turn curves or go up or down hills only at a low speed and at a gradual steering angle. Make certain that at
least 20% of the tractor’s weight is on the front wheels to maintain safe steerage. Slow down on rough or
uneven surfaces, and loose gravel.
Use extreme care and maintain minimum ground speed when transporting on hillside, over rough ground and
when operating close to ditches or fences. Be careful when turning sharp corners.
Never allow riders on either tractor or implement. Falling off can kill.
Be a safe and courteous driver. Always yield to oncoming traffic in all situations, including narrow bridges, intersections, etc.

MAINTENANCE SAFETY
Good maintenance is your responsibility. Poor maintenance is an invitation to trouble.
Follow good shop practices.
• Do not run engine indoors – exhaust gasses contain
carbon monoxide, and odorless and deadly poison.
WARNING!
• At the end of the working season or when the attachment will not be used for a long period, it is good
practice to clean off any dirt or grease that may have
accumulated.
Do not work under a raised loader unless it is
securely blocked or held in position. Do not depend
on the hydraulic system to hold loader and attachment in place.
• Inspect the attachment for loose, damaged or worn
parts and adjust or replace if needed.
Check the pins at the ends of the loader arms. Make
sure they are locked in place.
Periodically check all bolts to make sure they are tight.
• Sand areas where paint is chipped or worn and repaint
to prevent rust.
Check the bolt on the forged spears to make sure it is
tight.
Lubricate loader as per instructions in loader manual.
• Storage location should be level and solid to make
hitching and unhitching easy.
Replace safety signs and instruction decals if damaged
or missing.
- Keep service area clean and dry.
- Be sure electrical outlets and tools are properly grounded.
- Use adequate light for the job at hand.
Make sure there is plenty of ventilation. Never operate the engine of the prime mover in a closed building. The
exhaust fumes may cause asphyxiation.
Before working on this machine, drive to a level area, disengage the PTO, lower implement (or if working
underneath, raise and block securely), shut off the engine, set the brakes, and remove the ignition keys.
Be certain all moving parts on attachments have come to a complete stop before attempting to perform
maintenance.
Never work under equipment unless it is blocked securely. Never depend on hydraulic system to keep implement in raised position.
Keep all persons away from operator control area while performing adjustments, service, or maintenance.
• Always store in a clean, dry location away from children and livestock.

HANDLE BALES SAFELY
MAINTENANCE SAFETY (continued)
After servicing, be sure all tools, parts and service equipment are removed.
Check to ensure all safety signs are installed and in good condition. (See safety sign section for location
drawing.)
Improper use of loaders to handle bales can result in
serious injury or death to the operator. This could be
caused by the bale tumbling back down the loader into
the operator’s station.
For optimum stability and visibility:
• Become familiar with controls.
Do not allow grease or oil to build up on any deck or platform.
Never replace hex bolts with less than grade five bolts unless otherwise specified, i.e. shear bolts. Refer to bolt
torque chart for head identification marking.
Where replacement parts are necessary for periodic maintenance and servicing, genuine factory replacement
parts must be used to restore your equipment to original specifications. The manufacturer will not claim responsibility for use of unapproved parts and/or accessories and other damages as a result of their use.
If equipment has been altered in any way from original design, the manufacturer does not accept any liability
for injury or warranty.
A fire extinguisher and first aid kit should be kept readily accessible while performing maintenance on this
equipment.
• Be sure anyone operating the loader is aware of safe
operation and potential hazards. Read and observe
safety recommendations in loader manual.
When working on side hills, DO NOT
RAISE LOADER TOO HIGH. Keep an
eye on terrain changes. Keep load low.
• Operate loader from operator’s seat only. Remain at
controls until operating cycle is complete.
WARNING!
• Carry the bale slowly and as low as possible to the
ground.
For multiple spear models, always insert spears
into the bale – NEVER under the bale. Failure to insert
spears into bale can allow bale to roll back when
loader is raised, causing serious injury or death.
• Operate the loader hydraulic controls smoothly,
avoiding jerky operation.
• When handling round bales on a slope, always
approach the bale with the power unit facing uphill.
TRANSPORTING
——————————————————
• Never use the tractor/loader to stop a rolling bale.
CAUTION!
STORAGE SAFETY
• Stop loader gradually when lowering or lifting loads.
Following operation or when unhooking, stop the tractor, set the brakes, disengage the PTO, shut off the
engine and remove the ignition keys.
• Use particular care when working on inclines and
hillsides.
Never unhitch without using the tongue jack. The tongue is very heavy. Attempting to lift the tongue without
using the tongue jack could cause strains. Allowing the tongue to fall suddenly and unexpectedly could result
in crushing injury. Use the tongue jack for lifting the implement only. Overloading the jack can cause failure with
possible serious bodily injury or even death.
• Avoid holes, ditches, and obstructions which may
cause tractor/loader to tip.
When traveling on public roads, whether at night or
during the day, use accessory light and devices for
adequate warnings to operators of other vehicles.
Comply with all federal, state and local laws.
Carry load low.
• Allow for additional length of loader on tractor while
turning.
Check visibility. If visibility is impaired, reduce speed or
consider other means of bale transport.
• Never allow anyone to walk or work under a raised
loader.
Allow for additional length of loader and spear attachment on tractor while turning.
• Be sure that people, livestock, or pets are not standing near the machine while operating.
Select a safe ground travel speed when transporting
from one area to another. When traveling on roadways,
transport in such a way that faster moving vehicles may
pass you safely.
Store the unit in an area away from human activity.
Do not park equipment where it will be exposed to livestock for long periods of time. Damage and livestock
injury could result.
Do not permit children to play on or around the stored unit.
• Travel slowly over rough ground or when making
turns.
Make sure all parked machines are on a hard, level surface and engage all safety devices.
If blocking is used, make sure it is solid and secure before leaving area.
12
• Drive slowly through gates and doors.
When traveling over rough or hilly terrain or when
making turns, slow down and use extra care.
• Lower bucket or attachment to ground when loader is
unattended.

SAFETY SIGNS
NOTE: In cold weather, a bale frozen to the ground may
exceed the lifting capacity of spear and loader. Damage
to spear or loader may occur. Not covered under
warranty.
NOTE: In cold weather, a bale frozen to the ground may
exceed the lifting capacity of spear and loader. Damage
to spear or loader may occur. Not covered under
warranty.
WARNING!
NOTE: Soft center bales will tend to droop after being
lifted by a single spear. Placing the spear in a lower
position in the bale will allow for more lifting height and
lessen the load on the stabilizer spears.
NEVER try to handle two rectangular bales at once
without the 831095 optional bolt-on uprights
installed. Failure to use the uprights can allow the
top bale to roll back when loader is raised, causing
serious injury or death.
CAUTION!
HANDLING ALL BALES:
NEVER LET ANYONE CLIMB ON STACKED ROUND
HAY BALES!
(For models JDBS-412, JDBS-423, JDBS-434
and JDBS-433)
When stacking bales, ALWAYS MAKE SURE BALES
ARE PLACED SO THE STACK IS STABLE.
RECTANGULAR BALES:
Keep all bystanders at a safe distance. REMEMBER –
FALLING BALES CAN ROLL OR TUMBLE.
Using the bucket tilt cylinders, adjust the angle of the
spear(s) so they are parallel with the center of the hay
bale. Center the spears with the width of the bale.
When stacking hay bales or loading vehicles, make
sure you are operating in an area AWAY FROM OVERHEAD WIRES.
With the power unit, push the spear(s) into the large
hay bale. Make sure you have penetrated the hay bale far
enough so the bale doesn’t want to come off the end of
the spear(s). If, when you initially pick the bale up, it tends
to droop forward, this would indicate you have not penetrated the bale far enough.
DANGER!
Beware of low electrical wires when loader is
raised. Serious injury or death can result if contact is
made.
Do not leave the operator’s seat if any part of the
tractor or implement contacts electric lines.
Tilt the ends of the spear(s) upward (about 15-20
degrees) when transporting the hay bales. This will
reduce any tendency for the bale to slide off the spear(s)
while being transported.
WARNING
Always insert spears in bale – never
under bale.
Failure to do this can allow bale
roll back when loader is raised,
causing serious injury or death.
101127
(For models JDBS-423, JDBS-434, JDBS-433,
JDBS-623, JDBS-633 and JDBS-634)
CAUTION!
Beware of lift clearance when raising loader to maximum height.
When you have placed the hay bale in the desired location, it is recommended to tilt the spear ends slightly
downward (5-7 degrees) so as you pull away from the
bale it will slide off the spear(s) more easily. Different
location and circumstances will determine the best withdraw angle to use.
WARNING!
BE CAREFUL!
Use a clean, damp cloth to clean safety decals. Avoid
spraying to close to decals when using a pressure washer;
high-pressure water can enter through very small scratches
or under edges of decals causing them to peel or come off.
■ Never exceed the lift capacity of the tractor-loader
used with the spear attachment.
NOTE: Optional bolt-on uprights are available to transport two rectangular bales at a time (see page 27). Order
#831095 (one pair of uprights).
■ A heavy load can cause instability in driving a
tractor. Make sure the rear of the tractor is properly
counter-balanced with weights or a bale. Always
drive slowly – especially around turns. An unstable
tractor could steer badly and possibly tip over,
causing injury or death.
NOTE: Always make sure bale spear fully penetrates the
bale. Partial penetration locates all the weight of the bale
on the outer end and can damage spear.

REMEMBER:
If Safety Signs have been damaged, removed, become
illegible or parts replaced without Signs, new Safety Signs
must be applied. New Safety Signs are available from your
authorized distributor or factory.

HANDLE BALES SAFELY
MAINTENANCE SAFETY (continued)
After servicing, be sure all tools, parts and service equipment are removed.
Check to ensure all safety signs are installed and in good condition. (See safety sign section for location
drawing.)
Improper use of loaders to handle bales can result in
serious injury or death to the operator. This could be
caused by the bale tumbling back down the loader into
the operator’s station.
For optimum stability and visibility:
• Become familiar with controls.
Do not allow grease or oil to build up on any deck or platform.
Never replace hex bolts with less than grade five bolts unless otherwise specified, i.e. shear bolts. Refer to bolt
torque chart for head identification marking.
Where replacement parts are necessary for periodic maintenance and servicing, genuine factory replacement
parts must be used to restore your equipment to original specifications. The manufacturer will not claim responsibility for use of unapproved parts and/or accessories and other damages as a result of their use.
If equipment has been altered in any way from original design, the manufacturer does not accept any liability
for injury or warranty.
A fire extinguisher and first aid kit should be kept readily accessible while performing maintenance on this
equipment.
• Be sure anyone operating the loader is aware of safe
operation and potential hazards. Read and observe
safety recommendations in loader manual.
When working on side hills, DO NOT
RAISE LOADER TOO HIGH. Keep an
eye on terrain changes. Keep load low.
• Operate loader from operator’s seat only. Remain at
controls until operating cycle is complete.
WARNING!
• Carry the bale slowly and as low as possible to the
ground.
For multiple spear models, always insert spears
into the bale – NEVER under the bale. Failure to insert
spears into bale can allow bale to roll back when
loader is raised, causing serious injury or death.
• Operate the loader hydraulic controls smoothly,
avoiding jerky operation.
• When handling round bales on a slope, always
approach the bale with the power unit facing uphill.
TRANSPORTING
——————————————————
• Never use the tractor/loader to stop a rolling bale.
CAUTION!
STORAGE SAFETY
• Stop loader gradually when lowering or lifting loads.
Following operation or when unhooking, stop the tractor, set the brakes, disengage the PTO, shut off the
engine and remove the ignition keys.
• Use particular care when working on inclines and
hillsides.
Never unhitch without using the tongue jack. The tongue is very heavy. Attempting to lift the tongue without
using the tongue jack could cause strains. Allowing the tongue to fall suddenly and unexpectedly could result
in crushing injury. Use the tongue jack for lifting the implement only. Overloading the jack can cause failure with
possible serious bodily injury or even death.
• Avoid holes, ditches, and obstructions which may
cause tractor/loader to tip.
When traveling on public roads, whether at night or
during the day, use accessory light and devices for
adequate warnings to operators of other vehicles.
Comply with all federal, state and local laws.
Carry load low.
• Allow for additional length of loader on tractor while
turning.
Check visibility. If visibility is impaired, reduce speed or
consider other means of bale transport.
• Never allow anyone to walk or work under a raised
loader.
Allow for additional length of loader and spear attachment on tractor while turning.
• Be sure that people, livestock, or pets are not standing near the machine while operating.
Select a safe ground travel speed when transporting
from one area to another. When traveling on roadways,
transport in such a way that faster moving vehicles may
pass you safely.
Store the unit in an area away from human activity.
Do not park equipment where it will be exposed to livestock for long periods of time. Damage and livestock
injury could result.
Do not permit children to play on or around the stored unit.
• Travel slowly over rough ground or when making
turns.
Make sure all parked machines are on a hard, level surface and engage all safety devices.
If blocking is used, make sure it is solid and secure before leaving area.
12
• Drive slowly through gates and doors.
When traveling over rough or hilly terrain or when
making turns, slow down and use extra care.
• Lower bucket or attachment to ground when loader is
unattended.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
(continued)
MAINTENANCE SAFETY
Good maintenance is your responsibility. Poor maintenance is an invitation to trouble.
Follow good shop practices.
• Do not run engine indoors – exhaust gasses contain
carbon monoxide, and odorless and deadly poison.
WARNING!
• At the end of the working season or when the attachment will not be used for a long period, it is good
practice to clean off any dirt or grease that may have
accumulated.
Do not work under a raised loader unless it is
securely blocked or held in position. Do not depend
on the hydraulic system to hold loader and attachment in place.
• Inspect the attachment for loose, damaged or worn
parts and adjust or replace if needed.
Check the pins at the ends of the loader arms. Make
sure they are locked in place.
Periodically check all bolts to make sure they are tight.
• Sand areas where paint is chipped or worn and repaint
to prevent rust.
Check the bolt on the forged spears to make sure it is
tight.
Lubricate loader as per instructions in loader manual.
• Storage location should be level and solid to make
hitching and unhitching easy.
Replace safety signs and instruction decals if damaged
or missing.
- Keep service area clean and dry.
- Be sure electrical outlets and tools are properly grounded.
- Use adequate light for the job at hand.
Make sure there is plenty of ventilation. Never operate the engine of the prime mover in a closed building. The
exhaust fumes may cause asphyxiation.
Before working on this machine, drive to a level area, disengage the PTO, lower implement (or if working
underneath, raise and block securely), shut off the engine, set the brakes, and remove the ignition keys.
Be certain all moving parts on attachments have come to a complete stop before attempting to perform
maintenance.
Never work under equipment unless it is blocked securely. Never depend on hydraulic system to keep implement in raised position.
Keep all persons away from operator control area while performing adjustments, service, or maintenance.
• Always store in a clean, dry location away from children and livestock.
Replace any worn or damaged parts immediately. Do

TRANSPORT SAFETY
Comply with state and local laws governing highway safety and movement of farm machinery on public roads.
The use of flashing amber lights is acceptable in most localities. However, some localities prohibit their use.
Local laws should be checked for all highway lighting and marking requirements.
When driving the tractor and equipment on the road or highway under 20 mph (32 kph) at night or during the
day, use flashing amber warning lights and a slow moving vehicle (SMV) identification emblem.
Always be sure the implement is in the proper raised position for transport.
Reduce speed when transporting mounted implements to avoid bouncing and momentary loss of steering
control.
Plan your route to avoid heavy traffic.
Make sure large round bales transported on tractor rear 3 pt. hitch do not obstruct visibility of tractor’s flashing
lights or SMV sign.
When transporting large round bales, keep load as low as practical to maximize tractor stability.
Transporting large round bales on front loaders can limit visibility. Keep load low and go slow if visibility is
obstructed. Always use extra care.
Do not exceed 20 mph (32 kph). Reduce speed on rough roads and surfaces.
Do not drink and drive!
Watch for traffic when operating near or crossing roadways.
Turn curves or go up or down hills only at a low speed and at a gradual steering angle. Make certain that at
least 20% of the tractor’s weight is on the front wheels to maintain safe steerage. Slow down on rough or
uneven surfaces, and loose gravel.
Use extreme care and maintain minimum ground speed when transporting on hillside, over rough ground and
when operating close to ditches or fences. Be careful when turning sharp corners.
Never allow riders on either tractor or implement. Falling off can kill.
Be a safe and courteous driver. Always yield to oncoming traffic in all situations, including narrow bridges, intersections, etc.

OPERATIONAL SAFETY (continued)
Allow for additional length of loader and bale on tractor while turning.
Never allow anyone to walk or work under a raised loader. Do not use loader for a work platform. Do not lift or
carry anyone on loader or in bucket or on attachment.
Set both front and rear tractor wheels wide for increased stability.
Be sure that people, livestock, or pets are not standing near the machine while operating.
ALWAYS lower loader to the ground or block securely before performing any maintenance work.
Stay alert for holes, rocks and roots in the terrain and other hidden hazards. Keep away from drop-offs.
Use extreme care and maintain minimum ground speed when transporting on hillside, over rough ground and
when operating close to ditches or fences. Be careful when turning sharp corners.
Reduce speed on slopes and sharp turns to minimize tipping or loss of control. Be careful when changing
directions on slopes. Do not start or stop suddenly on slopes. Avoid operation on steep slopes.
When using a unit, a minimum 20% of tractor and equipment weight must be on tractor front wheels. Without
this weight, tractor could tip over, causing personal injury or death. The weight may be attained with a front end
loader, front wheel weights, ballast in tires of front tractor weights. When attaining a minimum 20% of tractor
and equipment weight on the front wheels, you must not exceed the ROPS weight certification. Weigh the tractor and equipment. Do not guess or estimate!
Avoid excessive speed during operation.
ALWAYS lower spear points to the ground when parking tractor. Raised spear points could cause injury to
people or livestock.
Always shut off tractor and shift to “Park” or set brakes when leaving tractor. Always lower bucket or attachment
to ground. Remove key when leaving tractor unattended.
Before operating equipment: if you have any questions regarding the proper assembly or operation, contact
your dealer or representative.

OPERATIONAL SAFETY (continued)
Most accidents occur because of neglect or carelessness. Keep all helpers and bystanders at a safe distance.
REMEMBER FALLING BALES CAN ROLL OR TUMBLE.
Beware of low electrical wires when loader is raised. Serious injury or death can result if contact is made.
Always insert spears into the bale – NEVER under the bale. Failure to insert spears into bale can allow bale
to roll back when loader is raised, causing serious injury or death.
Do not handle bales that exceed the bale weight limitations of the loader. Watch for bales that are frozen to the
ground.
Carry the bale slowly and as low as possible to the ground.
Operate the loader controls smoothly, avoiding jerky operation.
When handling round bales on a slope, always approach the bale with the tractor facing uphill.
Never use the tractor/loader to stop a rolling bale.
Only use a tractor equipped with a ROPS cab or rollover protective structure. Keep foldable ROPS systems in
“locked up” position at all times. Keep seat belt fastened.
When stacking bales, ALWAYS MAKE SURE BALES ARE PLACED SO THE STACK IS STABLE.
For operator safety, always keep bale in front of tractor hood. NEVER position bale back over operator.
ALWAYS BE CAREFUL!
Always load rear of tractor first and unload last when using a front loader.
Beware of lift clearance when raising loader to maximum height.
Keep alert and watch the rear as well as the front when working with the loader.
When maneuvering close to buildings or passing through narrow areas, be sure to allow sufficient clearance
for the tractor, loader, and bale. Drive slowly.
Operate loader from operator’s seat only. Remain at controls until operating cycle is complete.
Stop loader gradually when lowering or lifting loads.

PREPARATION (continued)
Personal protection equipment including hard hat, safety glasses, safety shoes, and gloves are recommended
during assembly, installation, operation, adjustment, maintaining, repairing, removal, or moving the implement.
Do not allow long hair, loose fitting clothing or jewelry to be around moving parts.
PROLONGED EXPOSURE TO LOUD NOISE MAY CAUSE PERMANENT HEARING LOSS!
Tractors with or without equipment attached can often be noisy enough to cause permanent, partial hearing
loss. We recommend that you wear hearing protection on a full-time basis if the noise in the Operator’s position exceeds 80db. Noise over 85db on a long-term basis can cause severe hearing loss. Noise over 90db
adjacent to the Operator over a long-term basis may cause permanent, total hearing loss. NOTE: Hearing loss
from loud noise (from tractors, chain saws, radios, and other such sources close to the ear) is cumulative over
a lifetime without hope of natural recovery.
Operate the loader attachment only with a tractor equipped with an approved Roll-Over Protective System
(ROPS). Always wear your seat belt on tractors equipped with a ROPS. Serious injury or even death could
result from falling off the tractor – particularly during a turnover when the operator could be pinned under the
ROPS or the tractor. Keep foldable ROPS systems in “locked up” position at all times.
Operate only in daylight or good artificial light.
Always check to be sure the loader attachment is properly latched on the loader or that lock pins are installed.
Ensure that all safety shielding and safety signs are properly installed and in good condition.
Never permit any person other than the operator to ride or board the tractor or implement at any time. ALLOW
NO RIDERS!
The use of any loader attachment is NOT recommended on tractor with a tricycle wheel arrangement. Tricycle
type tractors are unstable for front loader use.
A heavy load can cause instability in driving a tractor. Make sure the front or rear of the tractor is properly
counter-balanced with weights. Always drive slowly – especially around turns. An unstable tractor could steer
badly and possibly tip over, causing injury or death.
