Operating the tractor and dozer require the combined use of these controls and additional controls whose operation is described in the tractor Operator’s Manual. Please take a moment and familiarize yourself with the name, location, and function of these controls so that you will better understand the safety and operating instructions provided in this manual. Figure 1. Control Locations A. Blade Angle Control Lever B. Manual Attachment Lift Lever A. Blade Angle Control Lever The blade angle release lever controls a spring-loaded plate which locks the blade in one of three positions. Use an abrupt pushing/pulling motion to release the angling mechanism and move the blade left or right. Push the angling lever forward fully to lock the blade in the left position. Pull the lever fully back to lock the blade in the right position. Move the lever slowly past center to lock in the centered position. NOTE: It is easier to change the angle of the blade with the attachment raised. B. Manual Attachment Lift Lever TRACTOR CONTROLS NOTE: Models with hydraulic or electric lift should refer to the tractor operator’s manual for lift control information. Before you begin operating the tractor with the dozer blade attachment, make certain you have: The attachment lift lever raises and lowers the dozer blade. To RAISE an attachment, depress the release button on top of the lever and pull back. To LOWER an attachment, depress the release button and move the lever forward. The back notch suspends the blade for transporting to and from the work site. The middle notch is the “float” position. The front notch applies downward pressure on the blade. See the Adjustments section for proper blade adjustment. 3 • Read and understood the instructions in the tractor Operator’s Manual. • Become thoroughly familiar with all of the tractor controls and their operation, including how to safely and properly start and stop the unit. • Practice driving in an open area—without dozing—to become accustomed to the unit. General Operating Instructions Checks Before Starting WARNING 1. Refer to the Maintenance & Adjustments sections of this manual and perform any needed service. Also, refer to the tractor Operator’s Manual and perform any required service. Perform the Safety System Interlock test found in your tractor Operator’s Manual. If tractor does not pass the test, do not operate the tractor. See your authorized dealer. Under no circumstances should you attempt to defeat the safety system. 2. Remove any objects from the work area which might interfere with plowing activity. Use caution when plowing a snow covered area. Snow can cover objects such as curbs, drop-offs, and other obstacles. Be familiar with the area you are plowing. 3. Adjust the skid shoes to desired height. See Skid Shoe Adjustment. 4. Make sure all hardware is present and secure. To prevent an explosion or fire, never store the tractor with fuel in the tank inside a building where an ignition source is present. Engine & Ground Speed Selection Always run the engine at full throttle. Set tractor speed to obtain the needed power to move the material. Operate at a safe speed, depending on conditions, so that you have complete control of the tractor. Rear wheel weights and chains are recommended for slippery surfaces. IMPORTANT NOTE To prevent damage to the unit, always raise the dozer blade BEFORE turning or backing up. A weight box is recommended for additional traction. DANGER Transporting OPERATING ON SLOPES CAN BE DANGEROUS For maximum ground clearance, transport the blade to and from work areas fully raised and angled straight ahead. Never operate on slopes greater than 17.6% (10°) which is a rise of 3-1/2 feet (106cm) vertically in 10 feet (607cm) horizontally. Starting & Stopping Operate the unit at a slow ground speed when driving onto slope. Avoid using brakes to control ground speed. 1. Start the tractor engine. Set engine throttle to full. When operating on slopes that are greater than 15 % (8.5°) but less than 17.6%, use additional wheel weights or counterweights. 2. Raise the attachment lift and travel to the work site. 3. Set the angling control to the desired angle. In addition to counterweights, use extra caution when operating on slopes. Drive UP and DOWN the slope, never across the face, use caution when changing directions and DO NOT START OR STOP ON SLOPE. 4. Lower the attachment lift and begin plowing. 5. Raise the plow before backing up. 6. To stop the tractor, set ground speed to neutral and set the parking brake. Before leaving the seat, stop the engine, set the parking brake, remove the key, and wait for all moving parts to stop. For additional traction, tire chains and a weight box can be added. Maximum weight added to tractor should not exceed 35 lbs. per wheel and 100 additional lbs. in weight box. 4 General Operating Instructions Changing Angle of the Blade: Snow Plowing Tips See Figure 1 for location of Controls. • Determine the best snow removal pattern before beginning. NOTE: It is easier to change the angle of the blade with the attachment raised. • Plan the pattern so that you avoid pushing snow onto cleared areas. 1. Raise the attachment lift. • When land contour permits, it is best to travel in the longest direction to minimize turning. 2. Use an abrupt pushing/pulling motion to release the angling mechanism and move the blade left or right. Push the angling lever forward fully to lock the blade in the left position. Pull the lever fully back to lock the blade in the right position. Move the lever slowly over center to lock in the centered position. • In very deep or heavy snow, it may be necessary to make the first pass with dozer blade partially raised, then repeat each pass with the blade lowered to clear the material left on the surface. Also, it may be necessary to clear less than the full width of the dozer blade or reduce ground speed. Dozing Tips • Snow tends to freeze into solid banks when plowed off a driveway or other large area. Because of this you may want to plow snow several feet past the edge of the drive to allow space for future plowing to build up. • Determine the best dozing pattern before beginning. • When land contour permits, it is best to travel in the longest direction to minimize turning. • In very deep snow or gravel, it may be necessary to make the first pass with dozer blade partially raised, then repeat each pass with the blade lowered to clear the material left on the surface. Also, it may be necessary to clear less than the full width of the dozer blade or reduce ground speed. • If pushing snow past the edges of driveways or sidewalks, be careful not to tear up the grass buried under snow next to the drive or sidewalk. Lift the blade several inches off the ground to avoid damaging the grass. • Spinning tires with tire chains can leave unsightly marks or permanent damage to asphalt or concrete driveways or sidewalks. Avoid sudden stops or starts. • When dozing, push the dirt to the desired location, then drag the blade backwards for final leveling. Pack down the dirt or gravel by driving the tractor over the leveled area. • Use any slight grade to your advantage, doze downhill, and set the blade angle so that the plowed material is moving downhill as it leaves the blade. Storage Off-Season Storage IMPORTANT NOTE 1. Remove dozer blade and hitch from the tractor. Refer to Tractor Operator’s Manual for important information concerning safely storing your tractor. 2. Use water pressure or a brush to thoroughly clean the dozer blade. 3. Paint, or lightly coat with oil, any area where paint has been worn or chipped away. Daily Storage 4. Lubricate the dozer blade. 1. Allow tractor engine to cool before storing in any enclosure. 5. Store the dozer blade and hitch in a dry place. 2. After dozing or plowing jobs are completed, hose or brush down the blade to remove excess dirt. 3. Lightly oil all pivot points. Coat bare metal surfaces to prevent corrosion. 5 Maintenance WARNING Lubricate Dozer Blade To avoid serious injury, perform maintenance on the tractor or dozer blade only when the engine is stopped, parking brake is set and all moving parts have stopped. Always remove the ignition key before beginning maintenance or adjustments to prevent accidental starting of the engine. Lubricate the dozer blade as shown in Figure 2. Where an oil can is shown, wipe the area clean, apply a few drops of oil (SAE 30), then wipe up drips or spills. In general, linkage connections and other parts that have partial rotational or sliding movement should be lubricated periodically with SAE 30 weight oil. Avoid applying excessive amounts of oil since this may cause a build-up of dirt around the lubricated area, making subsequent lubrication more difficult to accomplish. Schedule For Normal Care Care Required Schedule Clean debris from dozer blade. Lubricate dozer blade. After each use. Every 10 hours or at least once a year. Figure 2. Lubrication Points 6 Adjustments Skid Shoe Adjustment Slotted holes are provided to permit adjustment of the shoe assemblies for raising and lowering the blade to various working heights (see Figure 3). When cleaning snow from gravel or earth drives or walks, the shoe assemblies should be lowered fully to prevent blade contact with gravel or ground. When cleaning smooth hard surfaces like concrete, the shoe assemblies are normally placed fully up to allow the blade to scrape the surface. To adjust the skid, raise the blade off the ground and block with a piece of wood. Loosen the bolts (B, Figure 3) and move the skid shoes (A) up or down to desired height. Tighten the bolts securely. Figure 3. A. Skid Shoes B. Bolts Spring Tension See Figure 4. This snow plow/dozer blade is spring loaded so that when the blade strikes a solid object, the springs will allow the blade to release as shown, rather than cause damage. The blade will go back to its original position after object is cleared. Figure 4. Dozer Blade “Released” See Figure 5. To adjust spring tension hold rear nut (B) and loosen front nut (E). Tighten rear nut (B) to increase spring tension, or loosen to decrease tension. For initial adjustment, tighten nut (B) on each eyebolt enough to expose about 3/4" (19mm) of thread. Tighten front nut (E) against rear nut (B) to lock adjustment in place. Figure 5. Tension Springs A. Eyebolt B. Nut, 5/16 C. Spring 7 D. Pivot Frame E. Nut, 5/16 Adjustments Lift Rod Adjustment ELECTRIC/HYDRAULIC LIFT MODELS: D In the fully raised position the blade should be 6” off the ground. In the fully lowered position, the lift rod should slightly compress the spring creating downward pressure on the blade. C B A NOTE: Always adjust the lift height before and after adjusting the downward pressure. MANUAL LIFT MODELS The lift lever can be placed in one of three notches and is held in position by the lever latch. (see Figure 7). When the lever latch is placed in notch 1 the lift lever should be applying downward pressure on the attachment. In position 2, the “float” position, the attachment should experience negligible upward or downward pressure. Position 3 should raise the attachment approximately 6“ above the ground. E Figure 6. Adjusting Lift Rod A. Front Set Collar B. Rod Guide C. Spring D. Rear Set Collar E. Spring Clip NOTE: Always adjust the lift height before and after adjusting the downward pressure. Notch 2 LIFT HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT 1. Place the lever latch in notch 3 (see Figure 7). The snowthrower should be approximately 6” off the ground. If not, go to step 2. Notch 1 Notch 3 2. Lower the snowthrower and adjust the front set collar (A, Figure 6) to achieve the correct lift height. DOWNWARD PRESSURE ADJUSTMENT IMPORTANT NOTE DO NOT OVER-COMPRESS THE SPRINGS. In addition to providing downward pressure, the springs are an elastic medium that absorbs shocks caused by bumps and cracks in ground surfaces. Over-compressing the springs defeats this and may cause damage to the unit. Figure 7. Lift Lever Quadrant - Side View 1. Move the lever latch from notch 2 to notch 1 (See Figure 7) or place the hydraulic/electric lift in the fully lowered position. 2. The spring (C, Figure 6) should be slightly compressed applying downward pressure to the attachment. If not, adjust the rear set collar (D, Figure 6) to achieve the desired amount of downward force. Do not over-compress the lift rod spring. 8 Initial Setup & Assembly 1 4 5 4 6 3 4 2 4 3 7 8 9 10 29 28 11 12 27 2 26 25 22 24 23 10 21 20 17 18 19 15 13 15 14 16 Figure 8.
