OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
(continued)
UNEVEN TERRAIN –
OPERATION
EQUIPMENT SAFETY GUIDELINES
The safe operation of the implement is the responsibility of the operator. The operator should be familiar
with the implement, tractor (or ATV) and all safety
practices before starting operation. Review and follow all
the safety rules in this manual and those of the tractor or
ATV.
WARNING!
Do not operate on steep slopes.
Do not stop, start or change directions suddenly
on slopes.
A responsible adult (not a child) should do all the harrowing and transporting operations.
Inspect the area to be harrowed for stumps, stones,
branches, or other foreign objects that could cause damage to the pulling vehicle or the harrow. If objects cannot
be cleared from the area (like stumps) then mark them
clearly so the operator can avoid them.
The model FOH-5 spike-tooth harrow has adjustable
tooth angle. This allows you to set the teeth at 6 different
angles to provide the best flow-through of residue (flattest tooth angle) or the most aggressive tooth position for
fluffing up an arena (most straight up and down tooth
angle) and every position in between to fit the job you
need to do.
Use extreme care and reduce ground speed on
slopes and rough terrain.
Review the safety instructions with all users annually.
Watch or hidden hazards on the terrain during
operation.
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.
Pass diagonally through sharp dips and avoid sharp
drops to prevent “hanging up” tractor and harrow.
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.
Practice will improve your skills in maneuvering rough
terrain.
The model FOH-5 harrow has a staggered tooth
arrangement to give maximum conditioning of the soil,
breaking up and spreading of manure and residue, and
for even leveling and firming of the soil.
CAUTION!
Keep alert and watch the front as well as the rear
when working with equipment.
The spike-tooth harrow will cut trash and penetrate the
soil for good ground preparation. In tough soil conditions,
several passes may be necessary to work the soil to a
satisfactory condition.
Do not operate close to ditches or creeks.
Slow down when operating over rough ground.
Avoid excessive speeds!
The harrow can be operated at up to 5 mph. Under
most conditions, 3 to 4 mph is a better operating speed.
Operating too fast will not allow the teeth to penetrate
and greatly increase the chance of damage to the
harrow.
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.
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
Implement Manuals. Pay close attention to the Safety Signs affixed to the Tractor and the Implement.
SAFETY SIGNS
CAUTION!
When maneuvering close to buildings or passing
through narrow areas, be sure to allow sufficient
clearance for the implement and tractor or ATV.
In most cases, multiple passes will be required to
achieve the desired soil preparation. It is recommended
to straddle previous passes or work the second time over
at an angle to avoid ridging and to mix the soil.
Keep safety signs clean and legible at all times.
Replace safety signs that are missing or have become illegible.
Replaced parts that displayed a safety sign should also display the current sign.
Never allow anyone to play near the unit and always
store the unit in a safe secure place, preferable in a
locked storage shed or fenced area. Never allow anyone
to climb or ride on the unit for any reason.
SAFETY . . .
YOU CAN LIVE WITH IT!

INSTRUCTIONS
All equipment is potentially hazardous. There is no substitute for a cautious, safe-minded operator who
recognizes potential hazards and follows reasonable safety practices.
FLIPPING THE HARROW FROM
HARROWING TO TRANSPORT
POSITION AND VISE VERSA
When the use of hand tools is required to perform any part of assembly, installation, adjustment, maintaining,
repairing of the implement, be sure the tools used are designed and recommended by the tool manufacturer
for that specific task.
Pull the harrow to a level location. Unhook the harrow
from the tractor or ATV drawbar and move the
tractor/ATV out of the way. (FIG. E)
Personal protection equipment including safety glasses, safety shoes, and gloves are recommended during
assembly, installation, operation, adjustment, maintaining, repairing of the implement.
Install the two 1/2” x 31/2” shift pins to lock the tongue
assembly in the ridged position (pins go from outside
toward the center). (Top part of FIG. A)
Always use two people to handle heavy, unwieldy components during assembly or installation of the
implement.
Never place any part of your body where it would be in danger if movement should occur during assembly,
installation, operation, maintaining, repairing of the implement.
Never place yourself between the tractor or ATV and implement while implement is in operation.
Harrow teeth are sharp! Do not allow harrow teeth to fall on any part of the body. Do not allow wrenches to slip
when working near harrow teeth. Do not climb over machine above harrow teeth. Failure to stay clear of teeth
can result in serious personal injury.
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.
With the handle on the harrow, adjust the harrow teeth
to an almost flat position (handle forward). (FIG. B)
Lift the harrow tongue and raise the harrow to a vertical position. The harrow should be able to stand alone in
a vertical position while you walk around to the other side
of the harrow. (FIG. C)
Reach up and grab the harrow tongue and gently pull
the tongue toward you. Remember as the tongue comes
toward you, on the “wheel side” of the harrow, it may
require placing one foot on the rear crosstube as you pull
the tongue downward. You will be taking more of the
weight of the harrow as the harrow lowers. (FIG. D)
Once the harrow is flipped over and horizontal on the
ground, back your tractor or ATV up to the tongue and
reconnect to the unit.
CAUTION!
Do not allow others to ride on the tractor or ATV with an operator. Riders are subject to injury such as being
struck by foreign objects or being thrown off. Riders obstruct the operator’s view resulting in unsafe operation.
Never allow anyone to ride on the implement!
Do not leave the harrow in a vertical position. The
harrow could fall over and hurt someone. If you are
placing the harrow in a vertical position for storage,
secure the harrow so it cannot fall over.
Before you operate the equipment, check over all pins, bolts and connections to be sure all are securely in
place. Replace any damaged or worn parts immediately.
Do not allow anyone who is not familiar with the safety rules and operation instructions to use this equipment.
Never allow children to operate or be around equipment.
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.
Keep alert and watch the front as well as the rear when working with equipment.
Do not operate close to ditches or creeks. Slow down when operating over rough ground.

TRACTOR / ATV REQUIREMENTS
AND PREPARATION
Select an area for assembly that is clean and free from
debris.
When maneuvering close to buildings or passing through narrow areas, be sure to allow sufficient clearance
for the implement and tractor or ATV.
The model FOH-5 spike-tooth harrow is designed for 16
hp or larger garden tractors and ATV’s with an engine
size of 250 cc or more.
Do not attempt to lift heavy parts or assemblies. Use a
hoist, crane, forklift, or similar safe mechanical device, or
another person.
When removing, or adjusting equipment, be sure that your feet are never under the implement.
The harrow is easy to pull and maneuver. It can be
turned in tight areas.
Stand to the side and cut the shipping bands using a
pair of sheet metal shears. Remove the parts from the
pallet. Open the box containing the hardware and operator’s manual.
The harrow is easily flipped over so it can be transported over lawns or driveways without tearing up the
surface.
Lay the harrow section on a flat surface with the spiketeeth down. Position the rear part of the main frame at
the rear of the harrow section (as shown in the exploded
parts diagram) and install the two 3/8” x 11/2” bolts,
washers, and nylock nuts as shown.
NOTE: The transport wheels are for use behind the
tractor or ATV only. They are NOT designed for road use.
Adjustable spike-tooth harrows do an excellent job of
smoothing garden plots, fields, arenas, and landscaping.
Harrows will spread manure droppings, grass clippings,
leaf litter, and previous crop stubble.
Place the front main frame crosstube assembly at the
front of the harrow section and install the two 5/8” x 21/4”
bolts, washers, and nylock nuts as shown. Make sure you
have a flat washer on each side of both of the harrow
section side bars.
Spike harrows will incorporate fertilizers, herbicides,
and broadcasted seed into the soil. They will also remove
ridges left by plowing implements and loosen crusted
soil.
Lay the two front to rear angle iron bars onto the harrow section. These bars go under both the front and rear
crosstube frames and are just outside the front pull
bracket assembly. They attach to the front and rear
crosstubes with the 5/16” x 2” square u-bolts.
CAUTION!
Be sure your tractor or ATV is in good condition.
Read all the safety precautions and make sure all
operators are familiar with the safety rules of
operation.
Position the tongue weldment between the front pull
brackets welded to the front crosstube. Install the two 5/8”
x 11/2” bolts with washers and nylock nuts as shown in the
exploded parts diagram.
PACKAGING
NOTE: Nylock nuts are used at locations where some
pivoting motion is expected between the bolted parts. It
is suggested that nylock nuts be tightened to just a snug
fit and then backed off 1 - 11/2 turns.
The model FOH-5 harrow is normally shipped on a
single pallet. The harrow section is pre-assembled. The
rear part of the main frame will have the wheels installed.
The other frame parts will be strapped together. The
hardware will be in a box along with the operator’s
manual.
Install the two / ” x 3 / ” shift pins to lock the tongue
weldment to the front crosstube pull brackets. (This is the
position of the pins for transport and to flip the harrow
over.) Install the hairclip pins in the ends of the 1/2” x 31/2”
shift pins.

NOTE: The two 1/2” x 3” shift pins need to be removed
from the crosstube pull brackets for harrowing. This
allows the tongue assembly to float. The pins can be
stored by locking them in the two inside brackets on the
tongue assembly (see lower part of FIG. A).
ASSEMBLY
Preview the assembly instructions and the exploded
view of the harrow in your operator’s manual and become
familiar as to how the parts or assemblies go together.

Be careful to avoid catching the implement on stumps or other immovable objects.
Use extra care when working on slopes.
Avoid excessive speed during operation.
Make implement adjustments only when the implement is attached to the tractor.
Always ease the tractor or ATV into the load.
Watch for and avoid hidden obstructions, i.e., buried pipes, rocks, concrete piers, uneven concrete slabs,
stumps, etc., when operating equipment.
Never operate tractor and implement under trees with low hanging limbs. Operators can be knocked off the
tractor and then run over by the implement.
Always be sure the implement is in the proper position for transport.
Reduce speed when transporting mounted implements to avoid bouncing and momentary loss of steering
control.
Be a safe and courteous driver. Always yield to oncoming traffic in all situations, including narrow bridges, intersections, etc.
Do not exceed 10 mph (16 kph). Reduce speed on rough roads and surfaces.

TRACTOR / ATV REQUIREMENTS
AND PREPARATION
Select an area for assembly that is clean and free from
debris.
When maneuvering close to buildings or passing through narrow areas, be sure to allow sufficient clearance
for the implement and tractor or ATV.
The model FOH-5 spike-tooth harrow is designed for 16
hp or larger garden tractors and ATV’s with an engine
size of 250 cc or more.
Do not attempt to lift heavy parts or assemblies. Use a
hoist, crane, forklift, or similar safe mechanical device, or
another person.
When removing, or adjusting equipment, be sure that your feet are never under the implement.
The harrow is easy to pull and maneuver. It can be
turned in tight areas.
Stand to the side and cut the shipping bands using a
pair of sheet metal shears. Remove the parts from the
pallet. Open the box containing the hardware and operator’s manual.
The harrow is easily flipped over so it can be transported over lawns or driveways without tearing up the
surface.
Lay the harrow section on a flat surface with the spiketeeth down. Position the rear part of the main frame at
the rear of the harrow section (as shown in the exploded
parts diagram) and install the two 3/8” x 11/2” bolts,
washers, and nylock nuts as shown.
NOTE: The transport wheels are for use behind the
tractor or ATV only. They are NOT designed for road use.
Adjustable spike-tooth harrows do an excellent job of
smoothing garden plots, fields, arenas, and landscaping.
Harrows will spread manure droppings, grass clippings,
leaf litter, and previous crop stubble.
Place the front main frame crosstube assembly at the
front of the harrow section and install the two 5/8” x 21/4”
bolts, washers, and nylock nuts as shown. Make sure you
have a flat washer on each side of both of the harrow
section side bars.
Spike harrows will incorporate fertilizers, herbicides,
and broadcasted seed into the soil. They will also remove
ridges left by plowing implements and loosen crusted
soil.
Lay the two front to rear angle iron bars onto the harrow section. These bars go under both the front and rear
crosstube frames and are just outside the front pull
bracket assembly. They attach to the front and rear
crosstubes with the 5/16” x 2” square u-bolts.
CAUTION!
Be sure your tractor or ATV is in good condition.
Read all the safety precautions and make sure all
operators are familiar with the safety rules of
operation.
Position the tongue weldment between the front pull
brackets welded to the front crosstube. Install the two 5/8”
x 11/2” bolts with washers and nylock nuts as shown in the
exploded parts diagram.
PACKAGING
NOTE: Nylock nuts are used at locations where some
pivoting motion is expected between the bolted parts. It
is suggested that nylock nuts be tightened to just a snug
fit and then backed off 1 - 11/2 turns.
The model FOH-5 harrow is normally shipped on a
single pallet. The harrow section is pre-assembled. The
rear part of the main frame will have the wheels installed.
The other frame parts will be strapped together. The
hardware will be in a box along with the operator’s
manual.
Install the two / ” x 3 / ” shift pins to lock the tongue
weldment to the front crosstube pull brackets. (This is the
position of the pins for transport and to flip the harrow
over.) Install the hairclip pins in the ends of the 1/2” x 31/2”
shift pins.

NOTE: The two 1/2” x 3” shift pins need to be removed
from the crosstube pull brackets for harrowing. This
allows the tongue assembly to float. The pins can be
stored by locking them in the two inside brackets on the
tongue assembly (see lower part of FIG. A).
ASSEMBLY
Preview the assembly instructions and the exploded
view of the harrow in your operator’s manual and become
familiar as to how the parts or assemblies go together.
9
Be careful to avoid catching the implement on stumps or other immovable objects.
Use extra care when working on slopes.
Avoid excessive speed during operation.
Make implement adjustments only when the implement is attached to the tractor.
Always ease the tractor or ATV into the load.
Watch for and avoid hidden obstructions, i.e., buried pipes, rocks, concrete piers, uneven concrete slabs,
stumps, etc., when operating equipment.
Never operate tractor and implement under trees with low hanging limbs. Operators can be knocked off the
tractor and then run over by the implement.
Always be sure the implement is in the proper position for transport.
Reduce speed when transporting mounted implements to avoid bouncing and momentary loss of steering
control.
Be a safe and courteous driver. Always yield to oncoming traffic in all situations, including narrow bridges, intersections, etc.
Do not exceed 10 mph (16 kph). Reduce speed on rough roads and surfaces.

SAFETY INFORMATION
(continued)
INSTRUCTIONS
All equipment is potentially hazardous. There is no substitute for a cautious, safe-minded operator who
recognizes potential hazards and follows reasonable safety practices.
FLIPPING THE HARROW FROM
HARROWING TO TRANSPORT
POSITION AND VISE VERSA
When the use of hand tools is required to perform any part of assembly, installation, adjustment, maintaining,
repairing of the implement, be sure the tools used are designed and recommended by the tool manufacturer
for that specific task.
Pull the harrow to a level location. Unhook the harrow
from the tractor or ATV drawbar and move the
tractor/ATV out of the way. (FIG. E)
Personal protection equipment including safety glasses, safety shoes, and gloves are recommended during
assembly, installation, operation, adjustment, maintaining, repairing of the implement.
Install the two 1/2” x 31/2” shift pins to lock the tongue
assembly in the ridged position (pins go from outside
toward the center). (Top part of FIG. A)
Always use two people to handle heavy, unwieldy components during assembly or installation of the
implement.
Never place any part of your body where it would be in danger if movement should occur during assembly,
installation, operation, maintaining, repairing of the implement.
Never place yourself between the tractor or ATV and implement while implement is in operation.
Harrow teeth are sharp! Do not allow harrow teeth to fall on any part of the body. Do not allow wrenches to slip
when working near harrow teeth. Do not climb over machine above harrow teeth. Failure to stay clear of teeth
can result in serious personal injury.
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.
With the handle on the harrow, adjust the harrow teeth
to an almost flat position (handle forward). (FIG. B)
Lift the harrow tongue and raise the harrow to a vertical position. The harrow should be able to stand alone in
a vertical position while you walk around to the other side
of the harrow. (FIG. C)
Reach up and grab the harrow tongue and gently pull
the tongue toward you. Remember as the tongue comes
toward you, on the “wheel side” of the harrow, it may
require placing one foot on the rear crosstube as you pull
the tongue downward. You will be taking more of the
weight of the harrow as the harrow lowers. (FIG. D)
Once the harrow is flipped over and horizontal on the
ground, back your tractor or ATV up to the tongue and
reconnect to the unit.
CAUTION!
Do not allow others to ride on the tractor or ATV with an operator. Riders are subject to injury such as being
struck by foreign objects or being thrown off. Riders obstruct the operator’s view resulting in unsafe operation.
Never allow anyone to ride on the implement!
Do not leave the harrow in a vertical position. The
harrow could fall over and hurt someone. If you are
placing the harrow in a vertical position for storage,
secure the harrow so it cannot fall over.
Before you operate the equipment, check over all pins, bolts and connections to be sure all are securely in
place. Replace any damaged or worn parts immediately.
Do not allow anyone who is not familiar with the safety rules and operation instructions to use this equipment.
Never allow children to operate or be around equipment.
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.
Keep alert and watch the front as well as the rear when working with equipment.
Do not operate close to ditches or creeks. Slow down when operating over rough ground.

UNEVEN TERRAIN –
OPERATION
EQUIPMENT SAFETY GUIDELINES
The safe operation of the implement is the responsibility of the operator. The operator should be familiar
with the implement, tractor (or ATV) and all safety
practices before starting operation. Review and follow all
the safety rules in this manual and those of the tractor or
ATV.
WARNING!
Do not operate on steep slopes.
Do not stop, start or change directions suddenly
on slopes.
A responsible adult (not a child) should do all the harrowing and transporting operations.
Inspect the area to be harrowed for stumps, stones,
branches, or other foreign objects that could cause damage to the pulling vehicle or the harrow. If objects cannot
be cleared from the area (like stumps) then mark them
clearly so the operator can avoid them.
The model FOH-5 spike-tooth harrow has adjustable
tooth angle. This allows you to set the teeth at 6 different
angles to provide the best flow-through of residue (flattest tooth angle) or the most aggressive tooth position for
fluffing up an arena (most straight up and down tooth
angle) and every position in between to fit the job you
need to do.
Use extreme care and reduce ground speed on
slopes and rough terrain.
Review the safety instructions with all users annually.
Watch or hidden hazards on the terrain during
operation.
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.
Pass diagonally through sharp dips and avoid sharp
drops to prevent “hanging up” tractor and harrow.
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.
Practice will improve your skills in maneuvering rough
terrain.
The model FOH-5 harrow has a staggered tooth
arrangement to give maximum conditioning of the soil,
breaking up and spreading of manure and residue, and
for even leveling and firming of the soil.
CAUTION!
Keep alert and watch the front as well as the rear
when working with equipment.
The spike-tooth harrow will cut trash and penetrate the
soil for good ground preparation. In tough soil conditions,
several passes may be necessary to work the soil to a
satisfactory condition.
Do not operate close to ditches or creeks.
Slow down when operating over rough ground.
Avoid excessive speeds!
The harrow can be operated at up to 5 mph. Under
most conditions, 3 to 4 mph is a better operating speed.
Operating too fast will not allow the teeth to penetrate
and greatly increase the chance of damage to the
harrow.
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.
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
Implement Manuals. Pay close attention to the Safety Signs affixed to the Tractor and the Implement.
SAFETY SIGNS
CAUTION!
When maneuvering close to buildings or passing
through narrow areas, be sure to allow sufficient
clearance for the implement and tractor or ATV.
In most cases, multiple passes will be required to
achieve the desired soil preparation. It is recommended
to straddle previous passes or work the second time over
at an angle to avoid ridging and to mix the soil.
Keep safety signs clean and legible at all times.
Replace safety signs that are missing or have become illegible.
Replaced parts that displayed a safety sign should also display the current sign.
Never allow anyone to play near the unit and always
store the unit in a safe secure place, preferable in a
locked storage shed or fenced area. Never allow anyone
to climb or ride on the unit for any reason.
