Turning
The drier the fodder, the lower the PTO rpm to be
chosen (approx. 450/min), in order to avoid
damaging the fodder. The movement speed (6 - 8
km/h) should be adjusted to the condition of the
fodder. If the fodder is moist, the rpm and the
movement speed should be selected as with wide
spreading (flat spreading angle).

Winter Storage
Store the machine in a dry place.
Do not store it near artificial fertilizers.
Clean the machine thoroughly. Dirt attracts moisture
and causes corrosion. If you clean the machine with
high pressure water jet sprayers, do not direct the
water jet at the bearings.
Check moving parts (joints etc.) for freedom of
movement. Where it is appropriate, remove them,
clean them and check them for wear. If necessary,
replace them with new parts!
Overload clutch storage see chapter 6.3
Oil all joints!
Thoroughly grease the machine.
Grease the protective sleeves of the PTO shaft to
prevent them from freezing.
•
•
Touch up the paintwork; bare metal must be
conserved thoroughly with rust preservative.
Make a list of all replacement parts needed, and order
them in good time. It is easier for your KRONE dealer
to obtain and fit the necessary parts out of the
season. Your machine will then be fully operational for
the coming season.
The rotary tedder must only be jacked up with a suitable jack. Make sure that the rotary
tedder is solidly supported when it is jacked up.
