!

Look For The Safety Alert Symbol

The SAFETY ALERT SYMBOL indicates there is a potential hazard to personal safety involved and extra safety precaution must be taken. When you see this symbol, be alert and carefully read the message that follows it. In addition to 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.

Be Aware of

Signal Words

A Signal word designates a degree or level of hazard seriousness. The signal words are:

!

DANGER

Indicates an imminently hazardous situation which, if not avoided, will result in death or serious injury. This signal word is limited to the most extreme situations, typically for machine components that, for functional purposes, cannot be guarded.

For Your Protection

Important Safety Information

These are common practices that may or may not be applicable to the products described in this manual.

Use Safety

Lights and Devices

Slow moving tractors, selfpropelled equipment, and towed implements can create a hazard when driven on public roads. They are difficult to see, especially at night.

Flashing warning lights and turn signals are recommended whenever driving on public roads.

Use lights and devices provided with implement.

Transport

Machinery Safely

Comply with state and local laws.

Maximum transport speed for implement is 20 mph. DO NOT

EXCEED. Never travel at a speed which does not allow adequate control of steering and stopping.

Some rough terrain require a slower speed.

Sudden braking can cause a towed load to swerve and upset.

Reduce speed if towed load is not equipped with brakes.

Use the following maximum speed - tow load weight ratios as a guideline:

20 mph when weight is less than or equal to the weight of tractor.

10 mph when weight is more than weight of tractor but less than double the weight of tractor.

IMPORTANT: Do not tow a load that is more than double the weight of tractor.

Use A Safety Chain

A safety chain will help control drawn machinery should it separate from the tractor drawbar.

Use a chain with the strength rating equal to or greater than the gross weight of the towed machinery.

Attach the chain to the tractor drawbar support or other specified anchor location. Allow only enough slack in the chain to permit turning.

Do not use safety chain for towing.

Practice Safe

Maintenance

Understand procedure before doing work. Use proper tools and equipment, refer to Operator’s

Manual for additional information.

Work in a clean dry area.

Lower the implement to the ground, put tractor in park, turn off engine, and remove key before performing maintenance.

Allow implement to cool completely.

Do not grease or oil implement while it is in operation.

Introduction

Introduction

Land Pride welcomes you to the growing family of new product owners.

This implement has been designed with care and built by skilled workers using quality materials. Proper assembly, maintenance, and safe operating practices will help you get years of satisfactory use from this machine.

The parts on your Rotary Cutter have been specially designed and should only be replaced with genuine Land

Pride parts. Therefore, should your Rotary Cutter require replacement parts go to your Land Pride Dealer.

Application

The heavy duty RC5015, RCM5015, RC6015 and

RCM6015 Series Rotary Cutters are designed and built by Land Pride to provide excellent cutting performance on gently sloping or slightly contoured right-of ways, roadsides, pastures, set-aside-acres, or for residue in row crop fields. The 15’ cutting width, 2" to 14" cutting height and ability to cut weeds and brush make them well suited for these applications. All listed models offer pull-type self-leveling clevis hitches for attachment to

50-250 hp tractors. Both 50 & 60 series feature a Cat. 5 main driveline. Both models offer various safety guard selections making them an excellent choice for state and municipal mowing applications.

Tractor Requirements

Horsepower

The cutter is designed to be used on tractors with 50 to

250 hp.

Hitch

Refer to Figure 1-1:

The cutter uses a drawbar type hitch hook-up. Maintain proper distance, dimension “A”, between center of drawbar hitch pin hole and end of tractor PTO shaft.

“A” = 14" for 540 rpm

“A” = 16" for 1000 rpm

“B” = 8" for 540 rpm and 1000 rpm

“C” = 18” to 21” for 540 rpm and 1000 rpm

IMPORTANT: PTO damage may occur if distance

“A” is not properly maintained.

PTO to Drawbar Distance

Hydraulic Outlets

The number of tractor hydraulic duplex outlets is dependent upon how the Rotary Cutter is set-up.

Two duplex outlets are required if the wings are raised and lowered simultaneously.

Three duplex outlets are required if the wings are raised and lowered independently.

Control valve kits are available from your local Land

Pride dealer if the tractor is not equipped with the correct

number of duplex outlets. See “Hydraulic Accessories” on page 23 for available hydraulic kits.

PTO Speed

!

CAUTION!

Do not over speed PTO. The cutter can be damaged when operated above its rated PTO RPM.

Either a 540 rpm or 1000 rpm tractor Power Take-Off

(PTO) is required. The RC5015 and RC6015 cutters are designed for 540 rpm and the RCM5015 and RCM6015 are designed for 1000 rpm.

IMPORTANT: Do not attempt to operate a 540 RPM driveline cutter with a 1000 RPM PTO tractor and do not operate a 1000 RPM driveline cutter with a 540

RPM PTO tractor. Many tractors provide both 540 and 1000 RPM PTO modes. Check your tractor’s manual to determine its capabilities.

Before You Start

Read and understand the operator’s manual for your cutter. An understanding of how it works will aid in the assembly and set-up of your cutter.

It is best to go through the Pre-Assembly Checklist before assembling the cutter. Speed up your assembly task and make the job safer by having all the needed parts and equipment readily at hand.

This cutter has been partially assembled at the factory.

However, there is still some assembly required before the cutter is ready for operation.

Pre-Assembly Checklist

Check

Fasteners and pins that were shipped with the cutter.

NOTE: All hardware has been factory installed. If a part or fastener is removed for assembly, remember where it goes.

Keep parts separated.

Be sure the parts get used in the correct location. By double checking while you assemble, you will lessen the chance of using a bolt incorrectly that may be needed later.

All grease fittings are in place and lubricated.

Safety labels are correctly located and legible. Replace if damaged.

Hitch Types

The cutter is factory supplied with the standard clevis hitch. Other optional hitches are available. See your nearest Land Pride dealer should you want to change your hitch set-up.

Standard Clevis Hitch

Refer to Figure 1-2:

A level rod attached to the underside of the clevis keeps the clevis parallel with the tractor drawbar at all cutting heights. Cutter rotation about the tractor drawbar is limited to slots located in the clevis’ upper and lower plates and drawbar hole size. Hitch should be secured to the tractor tongue with bolt, washers and nuts to prevent spreading of clevis.

Double Swivel Clevis Hitch (Optional)

Refer to Figure 1-3:

The swivel clevis hitch allows the cutter to pivot about the tractor drawbar freely in two directions. It is designed for cutting hillsides, reducing the twisting torque on the cutter hitch and tractor drawbar. Hitch swivel is greaseable.

Bar-Tite Hitch (Optional)

Refer to Figure 1-4:

The Bar-Tite hitch functions the same as the swivel clevis hitch except it is constructed of case hardened steel and has a bushing in the tongue to extend hitch life. Bushing and hitch swivel are greaseable.

Driveline Installation

!

DANGER!

Do not engage tractor PTO while hooking-up and unhooking the driveline or stand near a rotating driveline. A person’s body and/or clothing can become entangled in the driveline resulting in serious injury or death.

8/08/13

IMPORTANT: The driveline must be lubricated

before putting it into service. Refer to “Lubrication

Points” on page 31.

IMPORTANT: Do not attempt to operate a 540 RPM driveline at 1,000 RPM or a 1,000 RPM driveline at

540 RPM. Many tractors provide both 540 and 1,000

RPM PTO speeds. Check your tractor’s manual to determine its capabilities.

IMPORTANT: Read and understand “Section 2:

Operating Instructions” beginning on page 18 before

operating the Rotary Cutter.

The main driveline may be either constant velocity type or conventional type. Pull-collar couplers and retaining bolts are used to connect the driveline to the tractor and implement gearbox.

A driveline that is too long can damage the tractor, gearbox and/or driveline. Always check driveline length with cutter hitched to the tractor before engaging the

PTO.

Check Driveline Length

IMPORTANT: The Rotary Cutter must be hitched with tractor and cutter aligned in a straight line on a level surface. This arrangement provides correct alignment between tractor and gearbox PTO shafts.

1.

Park tractor and cutter in a straight line on a level surface. Place gear selector in park, shut tractor engine off, set park brake and remove switch key.

2.

Attach pull-collar coupler to tractor PTO shaft and bolted coupler to divider gearbox shaft. Skip to step 5 if driveline fits between tractor and implement.

Refer to Figure 1-11:

3.

The PTO driveline will require shortening if it does not fit between tractor and cutter gearbox. Shorten driveline as follows: a. Pull driveline apart as shown in Figure 1-11.

b. Attach pull-collar coupler to the tractor PTO shaft and bolted coupler to the divider gearbox shaft.

Pull on each driveline section to be sure the universal joints are secured to the shafts.

c. Hold driveline sections parallel to each other to determine if they are too long. The inner and outer shields on each section should end approximately

1" short of reaching the universal joint shield on the adjacent section (see “B” dimension). If they are too long, measure 1" (“B” dimension) back from universal joint shield and make a mark at this location on the inner and outer driveline shields.

4.

The driveline should now be moved back and forth to insure both ends are secured to the tractor and cutter

PTO shafts. Reattach any end that is loose.

IMPORTANT: Two small chains are supplied with each driveline. These chains must be attached to the outer and inner driveline shields and to the cutter deck or hitch to restrict the shields from rotating.

5.

Refer to Figure 1-10 on page 15. Secure chains (#6)

on driveline (#5) around hitch clevis rod to restrict driveline outer shield from rotating. Re-latch safety chain to driveline guard.

6.

Attach safety chain located on the other end of the driveline (#5) to the cutter’s main frame to restrict driveline inner shield from rotating. Re-latch safety chain to driveline guard.

Hydraulic Hook-up

The required number of duplex outlets at the tractor is dependent upon how the cutter is set-up.

The standard cutter is equipped with three hydraulic cylinders with one in the center for lifting the cutter and one on each wing for folding the wings simultaneously.

All three cylinders are set-up for single action

(one-way) operation.

Each duplex outlet on your tractor can perform only one operation. One outlet is needed for lifting the cutter and one for lifting the wings simultaneously. A third outlet is required if the wings are lifted independently. This will also require replumbing the hydraulics to the wing cylinders.

Your Land Pride dealer can help you determine the best configuration that will match your needs and your tractor capabilities. Optional control valve kits are available if the tractor does not have the required number of duplex

outlets. For additional information, See Hydraulic Outlets on page 11

!

DANGER!

Hydraulic fluid under pressure can penetrate skin. Wear protective gloves and safety glasses or goggles when working with hydraulic systems. Use a piece of cardboard or wood rather than hands when searching for hydraulic leaks. If hydraulic fluid is injected into the skin, it must be treated by a doctor within a few hours or gangrene may result.

Refer to Figure 1-10 on page 15:

1.

Route cylinder hoses (#7) through hose support loop and connect to tractor remote outlets.

2.

Cycle hydraulic system by raising and lowering center deck cylinder and wing fold cylinders. It may be necessary to purge the hydraulic system of trapped air if operation is sluggish.

!

WARNING!

Be sure center deck and wings are lowered to the ground and all hydraulic pressure is relieved before disconnecting any lines or pipes between the Rotary Cutter and tractor hydraulic system.

The system may be purged as follows: a. With wings lowered to the ground and hydraulic pressure relieved, loosen hydraulic hose fitting at each wing cylinder slightly to allow fluid to escape.

b. Slowly activate tractor control valve to purge any trapped air from the system.

c. Tighten each fitting.

3.

The center deck lift cylinder is purged in the same manner as the wing cylinders. The cutter must be resting on the ground and all hydraulic pressure relieved before loosening hose fitting as described in

2a above.

4.

Check driveline for adequate clearance under all ranges of cutter height. With driveline shaft attached to the tractor, slowly raise and lower cutter to its upper and lower limits while observing clearances between hitch and driveline. Adjust tractor drawbar height and/or length if driveline interferes. See

Figure 1-1 on page 11 for correct drawbar

dimensions.

!

CAUTION!

When traveling on public roads at night or during the day, use accessory lights and devices for adequate warning to operators of other vehicles. Comply with all federal, state and local laws.

1.

Be sure to reduce tractor ground speed when turning and leave enough clearance so the cutter does not contact obstacles such as buildings, trees or fences.

2.

Select a safe ground 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.

3.

When traveling over rough or hilly terrain, shift tractor to a lower gear.

Cutter Set-up For Field Operation

!

WARNING!

The following operational procedures should be carried out by the tractor operator. Other persons should be cleared of the area even during cutter set-up. Cutter operation should be stopped when in the vicinity of other persons.

Refer to Figure 2-3:

1.

Inspect the wing blade carriers and cutting blades prior to lowering the wings. The cutting blades may become locked together (overlapped) when the wings are raised to transport position. Operating the cutter under such circumstances will result in severe deck vibration. Inspect the wing decks for a locked blade condition prior to power-on operation. Use a pry bar or other tool to separate the blades when necessary.

Section 2: Operating Instructions

Table of Contents

Operating Speed & Turning Angle

Refer to Figure 2-4 & Figure 2-5:

Optimum ground speed depends on the density of the material being cut, the horsepower rating of the tractor and terrain. Always operate the tractor at the cutter’s full rated PTO speed in a gear range that allows the cutter to make a smooth cut without lugging the tractor down, usually between 2 to 5 mph.

Avoid tractor-to-cutter turning angles exceeding 35

degrees (Figure 2-4) if the main driveline is a standard

conventional shaft. Turning angle may be increased to 80

degrees (Figure 2-5) if the cutter is equipped with a

constant velocity driveline shaft. These extreme angles are intended for intermittent usage only and not prolonged usage. Plan your field cutting to minimize the number of turns as well as extreme turning angles.

!

WARNING!

Do not operate this cutter under any terrain conditions where, on a continuous cut, the wing angle exceeds 45 degrees up.

Ensure that the wing wheels are in continuous ground contact at all times. Use the float position of your tractor’s hydraulic system to provide automatic wing float position for varying terrain conditions.

General Operating Instructions

!

CAUTION!

To prevent personal injury caused by thrown objects, the use of front & rear safety guards is strongly recommended! To avoid injury or death from entanglement in rotating drivelines, the drive gearbox shields must be in place and secure when operating.

!

DANGER!

Rotary cutters have the ability to discharge objects at high speeds; therefore, the use of front & rear safety guards is strongly recommended when cutting along highways or in an area where people may be present.

!

CAUTION!

Damage may occur if exceeding the rated cutting capacity of the cutter!

!

CAUTION!

Do not over speed PTO or machine damage may result.

RC series are designed for a tractor with 540 RPM rear PTO and RCM series are designed for a tractor with 1000 RPM rear PTO.

!

DANGER!

Do not lift deck to use cutting blades as a fan. Cutting blades are not properly designed or guarded for this use. Using the deck as a fan can result in injury and/or death.

!

DANGER!

Do not operate 15 ft. cutters without both wings attached to the center deck. Removing one wing will expose blades and increase risk of cutter overturning. Removing both wings will expose blades on both sides. Exposed blades can result in serious injury and/or death.

It is important that you familiarize yourself with the

Operator’s Manual, completed the Operators Checklist, properly attached the cutter to your tractor, made leveling adjustments, and preset your cutting height before beginning a running operational safety check on your

Land Pride RC(M)5015 and RC(M)6015 Series Rotary

Cutters.

It’s now time to do a running operational safety check. It is important that at any time during this safety check you detect a malfunction in either the cutter or tractor that you immediately shut the tractor off, remove the key, and make necessary repairs and/or adjustments before continuing on.

Section 2: Operating Instructions

Table of Contents

Make sure before starting the tractor that the park brake is engaged, the PTO is disengaged, and the cutter is resting on the ground with both wings down. Start the tractor and set the engine throttle speed at a low idle.

Raise the cutter with the tractor’s rear hydraulic lift control lever to transport position making sure that the

PTO shaft does not bind and does not contact the cutter frame. Lower the cutter to the ground and at a low engine speed engage the PTO. If everything is running smoothly at a low idle, slowly raise the cutter to transport height checking for bind or chatter in the driveline. Lower the cutter to the ground and increase the tractor’s engine rpm until it reaches the cutter’s full PTO operating speed which will be either 540 or 1000rpm. If everything is still running smoothly, once more raise the cutter to transport height to check for driveline bind or chatter. Lower the cutter to the ground, return the engine to a low idle, and disengage the PTO. Position the adjustable stops on the tractor’s hydraulic lift lever so the cutter can be consistently returned to the same cutting and transport height. Make a tight turn to ensure that the rear tractor tires are not coming into contact with the deck.

You should now be ready to transport to your cutting site at a safe ground speed. On roadways, transport in such a manner that faster moving vehicles can easily see you and pass you safely. Reduce your speed when traveling over rough and hilly terrain. Avoid quick or sharp steering corrections. Take extra care to insure that the mower doesn’t come into contact with obstacles such as trees, buildings or fences. Use accessory lights and appropriate reflective devices to provide adequate warning to pedestrians and other vehicle operators when traveling on public roads and in the dark of night. Comply with all local, state and federal laws.

It is important that you inspect the area where you will be cutting and clear it of safety hazards and foreign objects either before or after you arrive at the cutting site. Never assume the area is clear. Cut only in areas you are familiar with and are free of debris and unseen objects.

Extremely tall grass should be cut twice to detect potential hazards. In the event you do strike an object stop the cutter and tractor immediately to inspect and make necessary repairs to the cutter before resuming operation. It really pays to inspect a new area and to develop a safe plan before cutting.

You will need to maintain either 540 or 1000 rpm PTO speed and 2 to 5 mph ground speed to produce a clean cut. Make a tractor gear and range selection that will enable you to maintain these speed combinations.

Generally the quality of cut is better at lower ground speeds. Dense ground cover will create the need to slow down even more. In certain conditions tractor tires will roll grass down resulting in an uneven cut when the grass fails to rebound. Should this happen you may try reversing the direction of cut and/or double cut to achieve the desired finish. Avoid very low cutting heights especially on extremely uneven terrain. Always cut downward on slopes and avoid crossing the face of steep slopes. Avoid sharp drops and cross diagonally through dips to prevent hanging up the tractor and cutter. Slow down in turns and avoid sharp turns if at all possible.

Remember to look back often.

Now that you’re prepared and well briefed you may begin cutting. Begin cutting by doing the following:

Reducing the tractor’s engine rpm.

Make sure the wings are on the ground and the cutter is in cutting position.

Engage the PTO.

Raise the engine rpm to the appropriate PTO speed.

Begin cutting.

Make wide turns when possible. Operators of pull-type models must plan ahead and choose a cutting pattern that allows for wider turns. Try increasing or decreasing ground speed to determine the effect on quality of cut.

With a little practice you will be pleased with what you and your Land Pride Rotary Cutter can do.

Whether you are done mowing, need to take a break, or just need to make a few adjustments to the cutter, remember to always do the following:

Reduce the tractor’s engine rpm.

Disengage the PTO.

Stop on level ground.

Set the park brake.

Turn off the engine and remove the key.

Stay on the tractor until the cutter blades have come to a complete stop.

Center and Wing Section Leveling

These adjustments should be made with the cutter hooked up to the same tractor that will be used for field operations or one having the same drawbar height.

Cutter adjusting rods are set at the factory prior to shipment. The adjusting rods control the draw bar height at the hitch clevis.

Refer to Figure 3-1, Figure 3-2 & Figure 3-3:

1.

Attach the cutter to the tractor and position it on level ground.

2.

Raise both wings to locked position.

Refer to Figure 3-1:

3.

Using tractor’s hydraulics, adjust height of center deck to 2-3 inch clearance between front skids (#2) and ground. Check deck levelness by making measurements from center of hinge rod (#1) to ground at the front and back on both side of the deck.

All measurements should be equal if deck is level.

5.

Repeat steps 3 and 4 for the right hand leveling rod.

Be sure that both sides of the deck are equal distance from the ground and that the right and left leveling rods are equally tight.

6.

See Figure 3-3. Lower wings to ground position.

Wing sections may need adjusting now that the center section is level. Loosen jam nut (#4) and rotate the adjusting turnbuckle (#5) to desired position. Re-tighten jam nut (#4).

Safety Guard Options

!

DANGER!

Rotary Cutters have the ability to discharge objects at high speeds; therefore, the use of front and rear safety guards is strongly recommended when cutting along highways and in areas where people may be present.

IMPORTANT: Not all objects will be stopped by the safety guards. Therefore, Land Pride recommends using extreme caution when cutting in public areas.

It is best to operate the Rotary Cutter when no one is around except the operator.

Land Pride offers three types of safety guards to best suit your application. They are the rubber guard, single chain guard and double chain guard. The rubber guard is designed for light duty applications. The single chain guard is designed to handle heavier applications where the cutter blades contact solid, dense objects capable of tearing through the rubber. Double chain guards provide the highest degree of protection against objects being thrown.

Independently Controlled Deck Wings

Land Pride offers a kit for raising the deck wings independently to clear small obstacles in the field without maneuvering around them. Your tractor will require three duplex outlets to raise the wings independently. If needed, you can add duplex outlets to your tractor by purchasing Land Pride’s 3 Spool Control Valve Kit or their

Selector Control Valve Kit. See “Duplex outlets” below if additional outlets are required.

IMPORTANT: Never operate this cutter under any terrain conditions where, on a continuous cut, the wing angle exceeds 45 degrees up. Damage to the wing driveline and gearboxes can occur. Raise wing only to clear obstacles and then lower the wing immediately after clearing the obstacles.

Follow all safety precautions in this manual especially information regarding raising the wings up with PTO running.

Hydraulic Wing Control Kit

Duplex outlets

Some tractors do not have enough duplex outlets to handle the equipment connected the tractor. Land Pride offers the following kits to add duplex outlets to your tractor.

3 Spool Control Valve Kit: This kit is for tractors with a single duplex outlet. It converts the single duplex outlet into three duplex outlets with three hydraulic controlled levers.

Selector Control Valve Kit: This kit is for tractors needing only one additional duplex outlet. It converts one of the tractor’s duplex outlets into two duplex outlets with a control valve. A selector switch on the control valve selects which of the two duplex outlets is operational with the tractor hydraulic control lever.

See your local Land Pride dealer if your tractor is not properly equipped with the correct number of duplex outlets.

General Maintenance Information

Proper servicing and adjustment is the key to the long life of any implement. With careful and systematic inspection, you can avoid costly maintenance, time and repair.

Check all bolts after using the unit for several hours to be sure they are tight.

Replace any worn, damaged or illegible safety labels by obtaining new labels from your Land Pride Dealer.

Cutter Blade Maintenance

!

DANGER!

Always disconnect main driveline from tractor PTO before servicing the underside of the cutter deck. Cutter can be engaged if tractor is started resulting in damage to the cutter, bodily injury and/or death.

!

WARNING!

Always secure cutter deck in the up position with solid supports before servicing the underside of the cutter. Never work under equipment supported by hydraulics. Hydraulics can drop equipment if controls are actuated or if hydraulic lines burst. Either situation can drop the cutter instantly even when power to the hydraulics is shut off.

IMPORTANT: Blades must be ordered and replaced in pairs. Order only genuine Land Pride blades.

Land Pride blades are made of special heat treated alloy steel. Substitute blades may not meet Land

Pride’s specifications and may be dangerous to

1.

Always disconnect main driveline from tractor PTO and secure cutter deck in the up position with solid supports before servicing the underside of the cutter.

2.

Always inspect cutting blades before each use. Make certain they are properly installed and are in good working condition. Replace any blade that is damaged, worn, bent, or excessively nicked. Small nicks can be ground out when sharpening.

3.

Both blades should be sharpened at the same angle as the original cutting edge and must be replaced or re-ground at the same time to maintain proper balance in the cutting unit. The following precautions should be taken when sharpening the blades: a. Do not remove more material than necessary.

b. Do not heat and pound out a cutting edge.

c. Do not grind blades to a razor edge. Leave a blunt cutting edge approximately 1/16” thick.

d. Always grind the cutting edge so that the end of the blade remains square to the cutting edge and not rounded.

e. Do not sharpen the back side of the blade.

f. Both blades should weigh the same after sharpening with not more than 1 oz. difference.

IMPORTANT: Unbalanced blades will cause excessive vibration which can damage gear box bearings and create structural cracks in cutter housing.

4.

Examine blade bolts for excessive wear and replace if necessary. To replace blade bolts: a. Order land Pride blade bolt part #802-277C and lock nut #803-170C.

b. Refer to Figure 5-1: Carefully check the cutting

edges of the blades in relation to the blade carrier rotation to ensure correct blade placement.

c. Torque blade lock nut to 450 ft-lbs. An extended cheater bar may be required.

5.

If replacing dishpan, nut on gearbox output shaft should be torqued to 550 ft-lbs. minimum and cotter pin installed in nut with legs securely bent around nut.

Drivelines With Slip Clutches

!

CAUTION!

Engage parking brake, disengage PTO, shut off tractor, and remove key before working on or around the driveline and/or slip clutch.

!

CAUTION!

Slip clutches that have been in use or have been slipped for only two or three seconds during run-in may be too hot to touch. Allow a hot clutch to cool before working on it.

Cutter drive components are protected from shock loads by a friction slip clutch. The clutch must be capable of slippage during operation to protect the gearbox, driveline and other drive train parts.

Friction clutches should be “run-in” prior to initial operation and after long periods of inactivity to remove any oxidation that may have accumulated on the friction surfaces. Repeat “run-in” instructions at the beginning of each season and when moisture and/or condensation seizes the inner friction plates.

Refer to Figure 5-2 to determine which friction clutch your cutter has. Follow “run-in” instructions on the following pages for your specific clutch type.

Clutch Run-In

Refer to Figure 5-3:

1.

Using a pencil or other marker, scribe a line across the exposed edges of the clutch plates and friction disks.

2.

Carefully loosen each of the 8 spring retainer nuts by exactly 2 revolutions. It will be necessary to hold hex end of retainer bolt in order to count the exact number of revolutions.

3.

Make sure the area is clear of all bystanders and machine is safe to operate.

4.

Start tractor and engage PTO drive for 2-3 seconds to permit slippage of the clutch surfaces. Disengage

PTO, then re-engage a second time for 2-3 seconds.

Disengage PTO, shut off tractor and remove key.

Wait for all components to stop before dismounting from tractor.

5.

Inspect clutch and ensure that the scribed markings made on the clutch plates have changed position.

Slippage has not occurred if any two marks on the friction disk and plate are still aligned. A clutch that has not slipped must be disassembled to separate the friction disk plates. See “Clutch Disassembly,

Inspection & Assembly” below.

6.

Tighten each of the 8 spring retainer nuts on the clutch housing exactly 2 revolutions to restore clutch to original setting pressure.

7.

Allow clutch to cool to ambient temperature before operating again. Clutch is now ready for use.

8.

The clutch should be checked during the first hour of cutting and periodically each week. An additional set of scribe marks can be added to check for slippage.

See Figure 5-5 to adjust spring length.

Clutch Disassembly, Inspection & Assembly

Refer to Figure 5-4 on page 26:

If clutch run-in procedure above indicated that one or more friction disks did not slip, then the clutch must be disassembled to separate the friction disks.

Disassembly

IMPORTANT: Not all Type A clutch components are arranged as illustrated in Figure 5-4. Also some have more components than others. Be sure to keep track of order and orientation of your clutch components during disassembly.

Disassembly of clutch is simply a matter of first removing spring retainer nuts (#1), springs (#2) and bolts (#3) from the assembly. Each friction disk (#4) must then be separated from the metal surface adjacent to it.

Inspection

Inspect all parts for excessive wear and condition. Clean all parts that do not require replacement.The original friction disk thickness is 1/8" (3.2mm) and should be replaced if thickness falls below 3/64" (1.1mm). If clutches have been slipped to the point of “smoking”, the friction disks may be damaged and should be replaced.

Heat build-up may also affect the yoke joints.

Tractor Maintenance

One of the most important things you can do to prevent hydraulic system problems is to ensure that your tractor's reservoir remains free of dirt and contamination.

Use a clean cloth to wipe the hose ends before attaching them to your tractor. Replace the filter element for your tractor’s hydraulic system at the prescribed intervals.

These simple maintenances will go a long way to prevent the occurrence of control valve and hydraulic cylinder problems.

Storage

It is good practice to clean, inspect, service and make necessary repairs to the cutter when parking it for long periods and when parking it at the end of a working season. This will help ensure the cuter is ready for field use the next time you hook-up to it.

!

DANGER!

Always disconnect main driveline from tractor PTO and secure cutter deck in the up position with solid supports before servicing the underside of the cutter.

1.

Clean off any dirt and grease that may have accumulated on the cutter and moving parts. Scrape off compacted dirt from the bottom of deck and then wash surface thoroughly with a garden hose. A coating of oil may also be applied to the lower deck area to minimize oxidation.

2.

Check blades and blade bolts for wear and replace if

necessary. See “Cutter Blade Maintenance” on page 24.

3.

Inspect for loose, damaged or worn parts and adjust or replace as needed.

4.

Lubricate as noted in “Lubrication Points” starting on page 31.

5.

Replace all damaged or missing decals.

6.

Store cutter on a level surface in a clean, dry place.

Inside storage will reduce maintenance and make for a longer cutter life.

7.

Follow all unhooking instructions on page 17 when

disconnecting tractor from cutter.

8.

Repaint parts where paint is worn or scratched to prevent rust. Ask your dealer for Aerosol Land Pride touch-up paint. They are also available in touch-up bottles with brush, quarts and gallon sizes by adding

TU, QT or GL to the end of the Aerosol part number.

Constant Velocity Driveline

Joints & Shields

Type of Lubrication: Multi-purpose Grease

NOTE: To extend the life of the constant velocity joint, extensive lubrication must be performed every

8 hours of operation.

The constant velocity joint should be greased in a straight position forcing grease through the passages and into the cavity. After lubrication, grease should be visible around the ball joints.

The constant velocity driveline comes equipped with a grease zerk in the outer telescoping member and must be greased every 8 hours to prevent premature failure of the joint.

Grease fittings are located on the u-joints and driveline shields and should be lubricated every 8 hours of operation.

Clevis hitch bolts to tractor draw bar and swivels left to right and front to back. This allows cutter to float but hitch stays rigid on drawbar, which eliminates drawbar wear.

Gearbox bottom seal is protected for longer bearing life.

Deck is 100% welded which offers additional strength and keeps moisture and dirt from getting trapped in tight places, which hastens rust over time.

Heavy gauge material aids in resisting damage from debris hitting the underside of the deck.

Reduces debris piercing possibilities.

Handles heavy cutting, which reduces balling up of cut material under the deck.

Cover a wide range of cutting conditions.

Eliminates skipping during turns.

Easy to Grease drivelines

Fully welded 1/2 ” x 3” deck rings on underside of each deck eliminates blades getting in deck, and offers additional overall strength to the decks.

Protects drivelines and gearboxes by slipping clutches rather than twisting the driveline when impacts are encountered.

Drivelines have access holes to grease the U-joints of the driveline, as well as holes to grease the inner profiles.

Hinged wing sections

1” Solid hinge rods

Wing hydraulics

Allow you to shape the cutter to the job. Ideal for rough ground where hillsides, ditches and hollows can cause uneven cutting.

Larger diameter hinge rod gives greater strength to the cutter from front to rear, and in the hinge area itself.

Wing hydraulics are plumbed independently to allow the user to raise one wing at a time, which can aid in going through narrow spaces.
