MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
1. Keep safety decals and signs clean and legible at all times.
2. Replace safety decals and signs that are missing or have become illegible.
3. Replaced parts that displayed a safety sign should also display the current sign.
4. Safety decals or signs are available from your dealer’s Parts Department or our Cedar Rapids factory.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Clean Surface
Wash the installation surface with a synthetic, free-rinsing detergent. Avoid washing the surface with a soap
containing creams or lotion. Allow to dry.
3. Remove the Liner
A small bend at the corner or edge will cause the liner to separate from the decal. Pull the liner away in a
continuous motion at a 180-degree angle. If the liner is scored, bend at score and remove.
4. Apply Safety Decal
a. Tack decal in place with thumb pressure in upper corners.
b. Using firm initial squeegee pressure, begin at the center of the decal and work outward in all directions with
overlapping strokes. NOTE: Keep squeegee blade even—nicked edges will leave application bubbles.
c. Pull up tack points before squeegeeing over them to avoid wrinkles.
5. Remove Pre-mask
If safety decal has a pre-mask cover remove it at this time by pulling it away from the decal at a 180 degree
angle. NOTE: It is important that the pre-mask covering is removed before the decal is exposed to sunlight to
avoid the pre-mask from permanently adhering to the decal.
6. Remove Air Pockets
Inspect the decal in the flat areas for bubbles. To eliminate the bubbles, puncture the decal at one end of the
bubble with a pin (never a razor blade) and press out entrapped air with thumb moving toward the puncture.
7. Re-Squeegee All Edges.

General Safety Rules
Maintenance Section
1. Maintenance includes all
lubrication,
inspection,
adjustments
(other
than operational control
adjustments
such
as
feedgate
openings,
conveyor
speed,
etc.)
part replacement, repairs
and such upkeep tasks as
cleaning and painting.
2. When
performing
any
maintenance work, wear proper protective
equipment—always wear eye protection—safety
shoes can help save your toes—gloves will help
protect your hands against cuts, bruises, abrasions
and from minor burns—a hard hat is better than a
sore head!
3. Use proper tools for the job
required. Use of improper
tools (such as a screwdriver
instead of a pry bar, a pair of
pliers instead of a wrench, a
wrench instead of a hammer)
not only can damage the
equipment being worked on, but can lead to
serious injuries. USE THE PROPER TOOLS.
4. Before attempting any maintenance work (including
lubrication), shut off power completely. DO NOT
WORK ON RUNNING MACHINERY!
5. When guards and covers are removed for any
maintenance, be sure that such guards are
reinstalled before unit is put back into operation.
6. Check all screws, bolts and nuts for proper torques
before placing equipment back in service. Refer to
torque chart in this manual.
307553-D
Page Rev. A
AGCO L4330G4
7. Some parts and
assemblies
are
quite heavy. Before
attempting
to
unfasten any heavy
part or assembly,
arrange to support
it by means of a
hoist, by blocking
or by use of an
adequate arrangement to prevent it from falling,
tipping, swinging or moving in any manner which
may damage it or injure someone. Always use
lifting device that is properly rated to lift the
equipment. Do not lift loaded spreader. NEVER
LIFT EQUIPMENT OVER PEOPLE.
8. If repairs require use
of a torch or electric
welder, be sure
that all flammable
and
combustible
materials
are
removed. Fuel or
oil reservoirs must
be emptied, steam
cleaned and filled
with water before attempting to cut or weld them.
DO NOT weld or flame cut on any tank containing
oil, gasoline or their fumes or other flammable
material, or any container whose contents or
previous contents are unknown.
9. Keep a fully charged fire extinguisher readily
available at all times. It should be a Type ABC or a
Type BC unit.
10. Cleaning solvents should be used with care.
Petroleum based solvents are flammable and
present a fire hazard. Don’t use gasoline. All
solvents must be used with adequate ventilation,
as their vapors should not be inhaled.

11. When batteries are
being charged or
discharged,
they
generate
hydrogen
and oxygen gases. This
combination of gases
is highly explosive. DO
NOT SMOKE around
batteries—STAY AWAY
FROM FLAME—don’t
check batteries by shorting terminals as the
spark could cause an explosion. Connect and
disconnect battery charger leads only when
charger is “off”. Be very careful with “jumper”
cables.
12. Batteries contain strong sulfuric acid—handle
with care. If acid gets on you, flush it off with
large amounts of water. If it gets in your eyes,
flush it out with plenty of water immediately and
get medical help.
13. Hydraulic fluid under
high pressure leaking
from a pin hole are
dangerous as they can
penetrate the skin as
though injected with
a hypodermic needle.
Such liquids have a
poisonous effect and can
cause serious wounds. To avoid hazard, relieve
pressure before disconnecting hydraulic lines or
performing work on system. Any fluid injected
into the skin must be treated within a few hours
as gangrene may result. Get medical assistance
immediately if such a wound occurs. To check
for such leaks, use a piece of cardboard or wood
instead of your hand. Make sure all hydraulic
fluid connections are tight and all hydraulic hoses
and lines are in good condition before applying
pressure to system. Wear protective gloves and
safety glasses or goggles when working with
hydraulic systems.
14. The fine spray from a small hydraulic oil leak can
be highly explosive—DO NOT SMOKE—STAY
AWAY FROM FLAME OR SPARKS.

Installation INstructions
safety
1. The selection of the vehicle on which a spreader
body is to be mounted has important safety
aspects. To avoid overloading:
a. Do not mount spreader on a chassis which,
when fully loaded with material to be
spread, will exceed either the Gross Axle
Weight Rating (GAWR) or the Gross Vehicle
Weight Rating (GVWR) for the chassis.
b. Do install the spreader only on a vehicle
with cab-to-axle dimension recommended
for the spreader body length shown.
6. Do not
weld on
vehicle
frame
as such
welding
can lead
to fatigue
c ra c k i n g
and must be avoided. When drilling holes in
frame member, drill only through the vertical
web portions do not put holes in top or
bottom flanges. Refer to truck manufacturer’s
recommendations.
7. Be sure that welds between mounting bars and
sill or between mounting angles and spreader
cross sills are sound, full fillet welds. Center
mounting angles so that good fillet welds can
be made on three sides—and edge bead weld is
not a satisfactory weld for this service. Use 309
rod/wire for carbon steel and 409 steel. On 304
stainless steel bodies use SAE grade 5 bolts—
welding is recommended if type 308 welding rod
is available.
2. Follow mounting instructions in the Installation
section of this manual. If mounting conditions
require deviation from these instructions refer to
factory.
3. When making the installation, be sure that the
lighting meets Federal Motor Vehicle Safety
Standard (FMVSS) No. 108, ASABE S279 and all
applicable local and state regulations.
4. When selecting a PTO to drive hydraulic pump, do
not use a higher percent speed drive than indicated
in the Installation section of this manual. Too high
a percent PTO will drive pump at excessive speed,
which can ruin the pump, but more importantly,
will overheat the hydraulic oil system and increase
the possibility of fire.
8. Install controls so that they are located of
convenient use. Position them so that they do not
interfere with any vehicle control and that they
do not interfere with driver or passenger or with
access to or exit from the vehicle.
9. Check for vehicle visibility, especially toward the
rear. Reposition or add mirrors so that adequate
rearward visibility is maintained.
10. Add Caution, Warning, Danger and Instruction
decals as required. Peel off any label masking
which has not been removed.
5.
W h e n
truck frame must
be shortened, cut
off only the portion
that extends behind
rear
shackle
in
accordance with the
truck manufacturer’s
recommendations. If
a torch is used to make
the cut, all necessary precautions should be taken
to prevent fire. Cuts should not be made near
fuel tanks and hydraulic oil reservoirs, fuel, brake,
electric or hydraulic lines and such lines should
be protected from flame, sparks or molten metal.
Tires should be removed if there is any chance
of their being struck by flame, sparks or molten
metal. Have a fire extinguisher handy.

Refer to www.highwayequipment.com for installation instructions. Once on the website, go to Customer Support, then Other New Leader Manuals & Instructions, then AGCO Installation Instructions.
The Model AGCO L4330G4 is a hopper type spreader intended for spreading free flowing granular agricultural
materials, such as chemical fertilizers. The MultApplier allows you to spread two different materials individually or
combined. It is intended for high-clearance post-emergence vehicles−the AGCO Rogator.
The unit is powered hydraulically and provides independent variable speed control for the spinner and full automatic
ground speed control for the conveyor. The hydraulic pump, which provides the hydraulic power, is a gear type
pump and is driven by means of mechanical gear drive from engine.
The dual conveyors deliver material to the spinners through an adjustable metering gate at the rear of the hopper
body. An orbital type hydraulic motor mounted to a 6 to 1 ratio spur gear case on the L4330G4 and a direct drive
motor on the MultApplier drive the conveyors. The L4330G4 has a belt conveyor. The MultApplier has a belt-overchain conveyor with parallel strands of pintle type chain joined by cross bars every other link.
The distributor spinner assembly has two 24 inch (60.96cm) diameter dished discs. Each disc has four formed and
heat treated fins that are adjustable to radial angle. The spinner is fully adjustable by means of a rotating handle.
This product is intended for commercial use only.

PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE PAYS!
The handling and spreading of commercial fertilizers is a most severe operation with respect to metal corrosion.
Establish a frequent, periodic preventative maintenance program to prevent rapid damage to spreading equipment.
Proper cleaning, lubrication and maintenance will give you longer life, more satisfactory service and more economical
use of your equipment.
WARNING
Shut off all power and allow all moving parts to come to rest before performing any
maintenance operation.
HYDRAULIC SYSTEM
Proper oil in the hydraulic system is one of the most important factors for satisfactory operation. Utmost cleanliness
in handling the oil cannot be stressed enough. Keep hydraulic oil in original closed containers, clean top of container
before opening and pouring, and handle in extremely clean measures and funnels.
Service Schedule
1. Check hydraulic oil daily by means of sight gauge on reservoir. Add oil as necessary to maintain level around
mid-point of sight gauge. Periodically inspect hoses and fittings for leaks.
DO NOT check leaks with hands while system is operating as high pressure oil leaks can be
dangerous! If skin is pierced with hydraulic fluid at high pressure seek immediate medical
attention as fluid injected into the skin could cause gangrene if left untreated. Relieve
WARNING pressure before disconnecting hydraulic lines or working system. Make sure all hydraulic
fluid connections are tight and all hydraulic hoses and lines are in good condition before
applying pressure to the system. Wear protective gloves and safety glasses or goggles when
working with hydraulic systems.
WARNING
DO NOT check for leaks adjacent to moving parts while system is operating as there may be
danger of entanglement!
2. Change hydraulic oil filter after first week (or not more than 50 hours) of operation on a unit.
3. After first filter change, replace filter when indicator reaches Red Zone.
4. Drain reservoir through drain plug (not through suction outlet), flush, and refill and change filter element
annually. Oil and filter should also be changed whenever oil shows any signs of breaking down under continued
high-pressure operation. Discoloration of oil is one sign of breakdown.

Clean
Clean assembly by blowing out with clean compressed air. Assemblies may be
rinsed out with mineral spirits if the tube stock is compatible with oil, otherwise hot
water at 150°F (65.55° C) maximum may be used.
Inspect
Examine hose assembly internally for cut or bulged tube, obstructions, and
cleanliness. For segment style fittings, be sure that the hose butts up against the
nipple shoulder; band and retaining ring are properly set and tight, and segments are
properly spaced. Check for proper gap between nut and socket or hex and socket.
Nuts should swivel freely. Check the layline of the hose to be sure the assembly is
not twisted. Cap the ends of the hose with plastic covers to keep clean.
Test
The hose assembly should be hydrostatically tested at twice the recommended
working pressure of the hose.
Test pressure should be held for not more than one minute and not less than 30
seconds. When test pressure is reached, visually inspect hose assembly for: 1. Any
leaks or signs of weakness. 2. Any movement of the hose fitting in relation to the
hose. Any of these defects are cause for rejection.
Storage and Handling
Hose should be stored in a dark, dry atmosphere away from electrical equipment, and the temperature should not
exceed 90° F (32° C).
#5 CONVEYOR BELT
Maintenance
The conveyor belt should be checked daily for proper tension and tracking. See “Adjustment” section.
Do not be alarmed as sides of belt wear unless belt is out of track. The belt will continue to operate satisfactorily
with up to 1” (2.54cm) total worn from the sides. Inspect belt lacing frequently for wear or “raveling” of belt grip
area and loosening hardware. Retighten loose nuts and peen end of lacing screw into slot of nut as required.

Adjustment
1. TENSION
Belt tension should be just tight enough to prevent slippage—no tighter. If the “flats” on the conveyor drive
pulley are visible through the belt, tension is high enough.
2. TRACKING
Empty spreader to check tracking by doing the following:
A. Make sure vehicle engine is shut off. Set spinner speed. Run PWM spinner control valve at 0 RPM.
WARNING Do not work near rotating spinners. Severe injury can result from contact with moving parts.
Figure 14
Figure 15
CAUTION
Figure 16
Use great care to avoid entanglement with any
moving parts.
A properly adjusted belt will either remain in a steady position centered
on the pulley or more often will “wander” back and forth 1/4 (.64cm) to
1/2 (1.27cm) inch across the pulley, but remain generally centered. The
conveyor belt sides should not curl or scuff.

Improper tracking is usually due to three basic causes. These problems and their respective solutions follow:
PROBLEM 1: (Figure 18)
Belt tracks to one side, contacts side of conveyor. Contact is more severe at the front and may not quite touch at
the rear.
SOLUTION:
Tighten idler bearing at side in contact with belt. Make this adjustment one turn at a time. Operate conveyor 10 to
15 minutes at a high speed to allow belt to react to the adjustment. Repeat if necessary.

Figure 18
PROBLEM 2: (Figure 19)
Belt contacts one side at front and contacts other side at rear.
SOLUTION:
If adjusting as in Problem 1 does not remedy the situation, adjustment of the drive pulley is necessary. Mark the
position of the adjustment screw (RH side) on the side of the unit. Determine which illustration shows the problem
to figure out which direction the drive shaft should be moved. Loosen the adjustment screw to move the shaft
forward; tighten the screw to move the shaft rearward.
NOTE: The illustration is exaggerated. Only move the adjustment screw 1/4 (.64cm) turn at a time after loosening the
bolts holding the bearing. Usually, 1/64 (.04cm) to 1/32 (.04cm) inch adjustment is all that is necessary. Retighten
bearing. Operate conveyor for 10 to 15 minutes at a high speed to allow belt to react to adjustment. The problem
should change to Problem 1. Adjust as in Problem 1 to track belt properly.

PROBLEM 3: (Figure 20)
Belt contacts side as in Problem 1, but contacts more heavily at a point approximately three feet from rear.
SOLUTION:
Realign snubber pulley. Note the point or side of contact from the illustration. This side of the snubber is too low.
NOTE: This pulley moves up and down ONLY.
Loosen belt and raise or lower as necessary. Loosen the two bolts holding the snubber bearing on the side to be
adjusted after marking the old position. Move approximately 1/16 (.16cm) inch at a time and retighten. Retighten
belt the exact number of turns previously loosened. Operate conveyor 10 to 15 minutes to allow belt to react to
adjustment. Refer to Problem 1 and readjust. If readjustment does not compensate, repeat.

If, after continued adjustment, the belt does not track properly, check the following:
1. Check for twisted spreader body. Shims must be placed between spreader cross tubes and the mounting surface
to eliminate any twist in the body structure.
2. Check for crowned Idler Pulley by placing a straight edge on the pulley. If properly crowned, the straight edge
will contact the center pulley leaving 1/16 (.016cm) inch gap between the straight edge and both pulley ends.
Replace the pulley if crown is not present.
3. Check for lacing squareness by removing the belt. This should be done as a last resort. If the lacing is not square
to the belt ends, contact your dealer for service.
4. Sight down the body under the belt shields. The only point which should come close to or slightly contact the
belt, is the lowest point on the shield. If the belt contacts the shield firmly at any other point, tracking will be
impossible and you should see your dealer immediately. Only your dealer can correct the situation.

Proper Tension:
MultApplier conveyor center
Touches at Center
Conveyor chains that are too tight will tend to stretch, causing excess sprocket wear and eventually breakage.
Excess slack presents the possibility of chain catching on sub-frame parts. Bent or distorted chain bars will cause
damage as well. Straighten or replace bent or distorted chain bars immediately.
#4 Conveyor Belt Maintenance
The standard belt for the #4 conveyor has a nylon fabric that is impervious to moisture, weathering or normal action
except oil. Inspect belt fastener occasionally for wear or “raveling” of belt grip area.
CONVEYOR GEAR CASE
Oil in a new unit should be drained after first two weeks (or not more than 100 hours) of operation and gear case
should be thoroughly flushed with light oil. Refer to Lubrication Chart and Specifications section for proper grade
oil. Refill gear case with one pint (.47 liters) of recommended lubricant. After initial change, oil should be changed
every 2,000 hours of operation or annually, whichever occurs first.
Check gear case oil level monthly.
LUBRICATION OF BEARINGS
Grease in a bearing acts to prevent excessive wear of parts, protects ball races, and balls from corrosion and aids in
preventing excessive heat within the bearing. It is very important the grease maintain its proper consistency during
operation. It must not be fluid and it must not channel.
Make sure all fittings are thoroughly cleaned before grease is injected. Points to be lubricated by means of a grease
gun have standard grease fittings.
Lubricate bearings by pumping grease slowly until it forms a slight bead around the seals. This bead indicates
adequate lubrication and also provides additional protection against the entrance of dirt.

Troubleshooting
L4330G4
Spinner motors do not turn when spinner control valve is in running position. See reasons 1, 2, 3,
4, 5, 7, 8 & 9.
• Symptom:
Spinners turn but conveyor does not run in manual mode. See reasons 6, 8, 9, 10 & 22.
• Symptom:
Console in operation mode, but the conveyor does not move when the vehicle moves. See reasons
6, 8, 9, 10 & 22.
• Symptom:
Spinner speed does not stay constant. See reasons 4, 5, 11, 12 & 13.
• Symptom:
Spinners run with cab control in “Off” position. See reason 14.
• Symptom:
Hydraulic oil overheats (200° F (93.33° C). or hotter). See reasons 1, 4, 6, 15, 16, 17 & 18.
• Symptom:
Light flashes and buzzer sounds intermittently. Conveyor runs in jerks. See reasons 19 & 22.
• Symptom:
Conveyor does not run with cab control “On”, hydraulics engaged and vehicle driving forward. See
reasons 20 & 22.
• Symptom:
Conveyor runs when control switch in cab is in “Off” position. See reasons 15 & 21.
• Symptom:
Conveyor starts to run when hydraulics are engaged. See reasons 15, 20, 21 & 22.
• Symptom:
Controller application or programming. Refer to the control manual’s Troubleshooting section.
• Symptom:
Undesirable spread pattern. See G4 spread pattern section at the back of this manual.
Reason:
1. Hydraulic oil level low.
2. Shut Off valve on oil reservoir not open.
3. Hydraulic Pump is not rotating.
4. In-line relief valve set too low.
5. Worn pump.
6. Conveyor relief valve open to return line.
7. Jammed or frozen spinner motors.

Correction:
Add hydraulic oil to reservoir to maintain level around midpoint of sight gauge.
Open valve fully by turning counter clockwise until it stops.
Key in pump shaft has failed. Replace key.
In line relief valve pressure should be 3100 PSI (214 bar) . If
unit is not equipped with a pressure gauge, install one at main
relief valve. Disconnect pressure line from main relief valve
and reconnect to flow meter and load valve. Open load valve
fully and run vehicle engine at field operating speed with pump
engaged. Slowly close load valve until pressure reaches 3100
PSI (214 bar). If this pressure cannot be reached, adjust relief
valve until gauge reads 3100 PSI (214 bar).
CAUTION: Do not set pressure above 3100 PSI (214 bar).
With flow meter arranged to check relief valve setting above,
open load valve fully. Read flow rate with vehicle engine running
at field operating speed. Close load valve until pressure reads
2000 PSI (138 bar). Flow rate should not decrease more than
ten percent. If flow loss is greater, replace pump.
Using relief valve testing adapter and flow meter, test valve
for opening pressure. If not 2000 PSI (138 bar), replace relief
valve.
Free up. If not possible, replace as required.

Correction:
Free up conveyor.
Replace motor.
Replace key.
Increase engine speed.
Run hydraulics flow check.
Replace valve metering spool spring. If no improvement,
replace spinner control valve.
14. Cab control is for conveyor only—spinners None required. This is a normal condition. To stop spinners,
run anytime vehicle engine is running, unplug PWM valve or shut off vehicle engine.
hydraulics are engaged and spinner control
valve is in a running position.
15. Excessive oil is being pumped.
1. Pump is too large. Do not exceed 25 GPM (95 LPM)
pumping rate. Change to smaller pump.
2. Pressure drop in control valve is sufficient to run lightly
loaded conveyor motor.
16. Worn motor (spinner or conveyor)
Motor heats up at an excessive rate (check for this heating
when system is cold.) Replace motor.
17. Improper or deteriorated hydraulic oil.
Replace hydraulic oil with proper specification oil and replace
filter.
