FIRE PREVENTION
Electrical
Maintenance
Check all electrical wiring and connections for damage.
Keep the battery terminals clean and tight. Repair or
replace any damaged part or wires that are loose or
frayed.
The machine and some equipment have components
that are at high temperatures under normal operating
conditions. The primary source of high temperatures is
the engine and exhaust system. The electrical system, if
damaged or incorrectly maintained, can be a source of
arcs or sparks.
Flammable debris (leaves, straw, etc.) must be removed
regularly. If flammable debris is allowed to accumulate, it
can cause a fire hazard. Clean often to avoid this
accumulation. Flammable debris in the engine
compartment is a potential fire hazard.
The operator’s area, engine compartment and engine
cooling system must be inspected every day and cleaned
if necessary to prevent fire hazards and overheating.
All fuels, most lubricants and some coolant mixtures are
flammable. Flammable fluids that are leaking or spilled
onto hot surfaces or onto electrical components can
cause a fire.
Battery gas can explode and cause serious injury. Do not
jump start or charge a frozen or damaged battery. Keep
any open flames or sparks away from batteries. Do not
smoke in battery charging area.
Hydraulic System
Check hydraulic tubes, hoses and fittings for damage
and leakage. Never use open flame or bare skin to check
for leaks. Hydraulic tubes and hoses must be properly
routed and have adequate support and secure clamps.
Tighten or replace any parts that show leakage.
Always clean fluid spills. Do not use gasoline or diesel
fuel for cleaning parts. Use commercial nonflammable
solvents.
Fueling
Operation
The Farm King machine must be in good operating
condition before use.
Check all of the items listed on the service schedule
under the 8 hour column. (See “SERVICE SCHEDULE”
on page 42.)
Do not use the machine where exhaust, arcs, sparks or
hot components can contact flammable material,
explosive dust or gases.
Starting
Do not use ether or starting fluids on any engine that has
glow plugs. These starting aids can cause explosion and
injure you or bystanders.
Use the procedure in the tractor’s operator’s manual for
connecting the battery and for jump starting.
16
Stop the engine and let it cool before adding fuel. No
smoking! Do not refuel a machine near open flames or
sparks. Fill the fuel tank outdoors.
Spark Arrester Exhaust System
The spark arrester exhaust system is designed to control
the emission of hot particles from the engine and exhaust
system, but the muffler and the exhaust gases are still
hot.
Check the spark arrester exhaust system regularly to
make sure it is maintained and working properly. Use the
procedure in the machine’s Operator’s Manual for
cleaning the spark arrester muffler (if equipped).
Safety - 25 Series Rotary Tiller
FIRE PREVENTION (CONT’D)
Call Before You Dig
Welding And Grinding

the battery, and disconnect the wiring from the machine
controls before welding. Cover rubber hoses, battery and
all other flammable parts. Keep a fire extinguisher near
the machine when welding.
Have good ventilation when grinding or welding painted
parts. Wear dust mask when grinding painted parts.
Toxic dust or gas can be produced.
Dust generated from repairing nonmetallic parts such as
hoods, fenders or covers can be flammable or explosive.
Repair such components in a well ventilated area away
from open flames or sparks.

longer shaft may be required. When fitting the
implement to the tractor, the PTO driveline,
with telescoping sections, must be inspected.
When the sections are at the most
compressed operating position, the sections
must not “bottom out”. At its shortest length,
there must be at least 2 in. (50,8 mm) of
clearance between each section end and
opposite section end at the most compressed
operating position. When the sections are at
the most extended position, there must be
sufficient engagement between the sections.

(See the tractor’s operator’s manual for the correct
procedure.)
Fully raise the rotary tiller into the transport position and
move the tractor and rotary tiller to next work site.
Move the tractor and rotary tiller to work area.
Work Site Recommendations
Adjust engine speed to low idle.
•
Lower the rotary tiller until the tines are just above the
ground.
Wet Soil - Wet soil will “ball-up” in the rotor and tines
making tilling extremely difficult. It is recommended to
wait for the soil to dry out before starting to work the
soil.
Slowly engage the tractor PTO to start rotor rotation.
Slowly increase engine speed to 540 rpm. Do not exceed
540 PRM.
Starting Tilling Process
NOTE: Depending on ground compaction, additional
passes may be required to reach desired
working depth.
Slowly lower the rotary tiller until the skid shoes contact
the ground.
Start driving forward at the desired speed. Watch for and
avoid obstructions and obstacles that may cause
damage to the rotary tiller.
When approaching the end of the work area, stop the
tractor and raise the rotary tiller slightly above the
ground.
Do not fully raise the implement when the PTO is
engaged. Damage to the tractor and implement may
occur.
Move tractor and position the rotary tiller at the starting
point (along side end of previous pass), overlapping the
tilled area approximately four inches.
Slowly lower the rotary tiller until the skid shoes contact
the ground.
36
Determine the moisture content of the soil before
starting.
•
Sandy soils normally can be worked better than heavy
clay or loam soils.
•
When tilling hard or compacted soils, it is
recommended that additional passes be used when
working.
•
Always remove heavy crop cover, all grass and
weeds to prevent rotor plugging.
•
The rotation of the Tines propel the machine in the
forward direction. Always use the tractor transmission
to control the speed of forward travel.
•
Always disengage the PTO control and raise the
machine out of the ground before depressing the
master clutch on the tractor.
•
Use low gear on the tractor to start the job. Increase
the ground speed of forward travel only as the quality
of the job and power available will allow.
•
If PTO slip clutch begins slipping, reduce the ground
speed or slightly raise the implement of the ground.

Recommendations
Always use a good quality multi-purpose / lithium base
grease when lubricating the equipment.
Do not over-grease bearings. Greasing too often can
damage seals and lead to premature bearing failure.
•
Always use a hand-held grease gun.
•
Clean fitting before greasing, to avoid injecting dirt
and grit.
•
Replace and repair broken fittings immediately.
•
If fittings will not take grease, remove and clean
thoroughly. Replace fitting if necessary.
Fluid such as engine oil, hydraulic fluid, coolants,
grease, etc. must be disposed of in an
environmentally safe manner. Some regulations
require that certain spills and leaks on the ground
must be cleaned in a specific manner. See local,
state and federal regulations for the correct
disposal.

Tighten until the nut makes contact with the seat. Use the
chart [Figure 30] to find the correct tightness needed.
NOTE: If the fitting leaks, disconnect and inspect the
seat area for damage.

NOTE: If a torque wrench cannot be used, use the
hex flat tightening method as an approximate
guideline.
NOTE: Port seal fittings are not recommended in all
applications. Use O-ring boss fittings in these
applications.
Tubelines And Hoses
Replace any tubelines that are bent or flattened. They will
restrict flow, which will slow hydraulic action and cause
heat.
Replace hoses which show signs of wear, damage or
weather cracked rubber.
Always use two wrenches when loosening and tightening
hose or tubeline fittings.

Limited Warranty
BASE LIMITED WARRANTY
Farm King provides this warranty only to original retail purchasers of its products. Farm King warrants to such
purchasers that all Farm King manufactured parts and components used and serviced as provided for in the
Operator’s Manual shall be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period following delivery to
the original retail purchaser of one (1) year. This limited warranty applies only to those parts and components
manufactured by Farm King. Parts and components manufactured by others are subject to their
manufacturer’s warranties, if any.
Farm King will fulfill this limited warranty by, at its option, repairing or replacing any covered part that is
defective or is the result of improper workmanship, provided that the part is returned to Farm King within thirty
(30) days of the date that such defect or improper workmanship is, or should have been, discovered. Parts
must be returned through the selling representative and the buyer must prepay transportation charges.
Farm King will not be responsible for repairs or replacements that are necessitated, in whole or part, by the
use of parts not manufactured by or obtained from Farm King. Under no circumstances are component parts
warranted against normal wear and tear. There is no warranty on product pump seals, product pump bearings,
rubber product hoses, pressure gauges, or other components that require replacement as part of normal
maintenance.
REPAIR PARTS LIMITED WARRANTY
Farm King warrants genuine Farm King replacement parts purchased after the expiration of the Farm King
Limited Warranty, and used and serviced as provided for in the Operator’s Manual, to be free from defects in
materials or workmanship for a period of thirty (30) days from the invoice date for the parts. Farm King will
fulfill this limited warranty by, at its option, repairing or replacing any covered part that is defective or is the
result of improper workmanship, provided that the part is returned to Farm King within thirty (30) days of the
date that such defect or improper workmanship is, or should have been, discovered. Such parts must be
shipped to the Farm King factory at the purchaser’s expense.
WHAT IS NOT COVERED
Under no circumstances does this limited warranty cover any components or parts that have been subject to
the following: negligence; alteration or modification not approved by Farm King; misuse; improper storage;
lack of reasonable and proper maintenance, service, or repair; normal wear; damage from failure to follow
operating instructions; accident; and/or repairs that have been made with parts other than those
manufactured, supplied, and or authorized by Farm King.
AUTHORIZED DEALER AND LABOR COSTS
Repairs eligible for labor under this limited warranty must be made by Farm King or an authorized Farm King
dealer. Farm King retains the exclusive discretion to determine whether it will pay labor costs for warranty
repairs or replacements, and the amount of such costs that it will pay and the time in which the repairs will be
made. If Farm King determines that it will pay labor costs for warranty work, it will do so by issuing a credit to
the dealer’s or distributor’s account. Farm King will not approve or pay invoices sent for repairs that Farm King
has not previously approved. Warranty service does not extend the original term of this limited warranty.

WARRANTY REQUIREMENTS
To be covered by warranty, each new product must be registered with Farm King within thirty (30) days of
delivery to original retail purchaser. If the customer decides to purchase replacement components before the
warranty disposition of such components is determined, Farm King will bill the customer for such
components and then credit the replacement invoice for those components later determined to be covered by
this limited warranty. Any such replacement components that are determined not be covered by this limited
warranty will be subject to the terms of the invoice and shall be paid for by the purchaser.
EXCLUSIVE EFFECT OF WARRANTY AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, FARM KING DISCLAIMS ANY WARRANTIES, REPRESENTATIONS, OR
PROMISES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, AS TO THE QUALITY, PERFORMANCE, OR FREEDOM FROM DEFECT OF
THE COMPONENTS AND PARTS COVERED BY THIS WARRANTY AND NOT SPECIFICALLY PROVIDED FOR
HEREIN.
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, FARM KING DISCLAIMS ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE ON ITS PRODUCTS COVERED HEREIN,
AND DISCLAIMS ANY RELIANCE BY THE PURCHASER ON FARM KING’S SKILL OR JUDGMENT TO SELECT
OR FURNISH GOODS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE PURCHASER’S ONLY AND EXCLUSIVE
REMEDIES IN CONNECTION WITH THE BREACH OR PERFORMANCE OF ANY WARRANTY ON FARM KING’S
PRODUCTS ARE THOSE SET FORTH HEREIN. IN NO EVENT SHALL FARM KING BE LIABLE FOR INCIDENTAL
OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING, BY WAY OF EXAMPLE ONLY AND NOT LIMITATION, LOSS OF
CROPS, LOSS OF PROFITS OR REVENUE, OTHER COMMERCIAL LOSSES, INCONVENIENCE, OR COST OF
REPLACEMENT OF RENTAL EQUIPMENT). IN NO EVENT SHALL FARM KING’S CONTRACT OR WARRANTY
LIABILITY EXCEED THE PURCHASE PRICE OF THE PRODUCT. (Note that some states do not allow limitations
on how long an implied warranty lasts or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages,
so the above limitations and exclusion may not apply to you.) This warranty gives you specific legal rights and
you may also have other rights, which vary from state to state.
Farm King neither assumes nor authorizes any person or entity, including its selling representatives, to
assume any other obligations or liability in connections with the sale of covered equipment, or to make any
other warranties, representations, or promises, express or implied, as to the quality, performance, or freedom
from defect of the components and parts covered herein. No one is authorized to alter, modify, or enlarge this
limited warranty, or its exclusions, limitations and reservations.
Corrections of defects and improper workmanship in the manner, and for the applicable time periods, provided
for herein shall constitute fulfillment of all responsibilities of Farm King to the purchaser, and Farm King shall
not be liable in negligence, contract, or on any other basis with respect to the subject equipment.
This limited warranty is subject to any existing conditions of supply which may directly affect Farm King’s
ability to obtain materials or manufacturer replacement parts.
Buhler Industries Inc. reserves the right to make improvements in design or changes in specifications to its
products at anytime, without incurring any obligation to owners of units previously sold.
