MAINTENANCE AND STORAGE SAFETY
In general
OPERATING SAFELY
In general
-
Use extra care when loading or unloading the
machine into a trailer or truck.
-
Slow down and use caution when making turns
and crossing roads and sidewalks.
Slope Operation

slopes rests with the operator.
-
Do not operate excessively steep slopes.
-
Keep all movement on the slopes slow and
gradual. Do not make sudden changes in speed
or direction.
-
Do not aerate near drop-offs, ditches or
embankments. The machine could suddenly turn
over if a wheel runs over the edge or an edge
caves in.
-
Do not turn on slopes unless necessary, and then
turn slowly and downhill when possible.
-
Maintain machine according to manufacturer's
schedule and instructions for maximum safety
and best results.

Aerator tines are sharp and
can cut. Use extra caution
when handling. Remove obstructions with care. Wrap
the tines or wear gloves.

TRANSPORTING/OPERATION
RENOVAIRE
TRANSPORTING
This unit is not designed nor meant to be towed at speeds in excess of 10 MPH (16 Km/h).
Towing at excessive speeds will cause damage to frame and/or wheels. This type of damage will not
be repaired under the terms of the warranty.
1. Raise the aerating wheels high enough to hook the eye bolts 11, Figure 1 onto the latch hooks on the side
of the cradle assembly.
2. Lower the aerating wheels until the eye bolts are supporting the cradle assembly.
OPERATION
Before operating, check the area to be aerated and remove any objects which may present a safety
hazard or which may damage the aerator (rocks, cans, etc.).
Underground Utilities
Electrocution, Explosion, Service Disruption Risk
Before beginning any work check with the local authorities for underground utility location and depth.
Contacting buried utilities could result in a service outage.
Contacting buried electrical utilities could result in electrocution.
Contacting a buried gas line could result in an explosion.
Be certain utilities are deep enough before operating over them.
Do not leave the tractor unattended without first lowering the aerator and stopping the engine.
To prevent possible injury, do not operate aerator without weight trays in place. Do not make any
adjustments or perform any maintenance while tractor is running.
1. Position tractor and equipment where aerating is to begin.
2. Lower aerating wheels and proceed to aerate.
NOTE:
Never cross hard surfaces (sidewalks, driveways, stepping stones etc.) with the tines down.
To prevent turf damage, aerator must be raised completely out of the ground while turning the tractor.
Do Not back up when the tines are in the ground or damage to the tines and clamps may occur.
When aerating soft ground and full penetration is not desired, the depth may be controlled by raising the
cradle assembly with the hydraulic system.
Failure to lubricate the aerating wheels can cause damage to the axles, bushings and the wheels.

SERVICE
RENOVAIRE
To improve penetration under hard soil conditions up to 45kg (100lbs) may be added to each weight
tray. DO NOT EXCEED 45kg (100lbs).
SERVICE
DO NOT use tractor hydraulics to support the aerator while servicing. Hydraulic lines may rupture
causing unit to fall suddenly.
When replacement parts are required, use genuine Shiller Grounds Care, Inc. parts or parts with
equivalent characteristics including type, strength and material. Failure to do so may result in
product malfunction and possible injury to the operator and/or bystanders.
Thoroughly clean all tines inside and out when aerating is completed. A light coat of oil will prevent rust and
insure proper coring and slicing the next time the unit is put into service.
Lubrication
The Renovaire has 18 grease fittings. There is one for each tine wheel (12) and one for each pivot shaft.
1. Grease every four (4) hours of operation with a lithium based grease.
2. Clean fittings before greasing.
3. Repack transport wheel bearings yearly using a good grade wheel bearing lubricant.
Transport Wheels
1. Check daily.
2. Repack with grease yearly.
3. Air pressure:
8
MINIMUM 45 p.s.i.
MAXIMUM 65 p.s.i.
STORAGE
RENOVAIRE
Storage Instructions
1. Thoroughly clean all tines, inside and out, after aerating is completed. A light coat of oil sprayed onto the
tines or blades will help prevent rust and ensure proper coring the next time the unit is put into service.
2. Unit should be stored on boards to protect tines or blades from rust and damage. Store in a dry location.
3. Lubrication before long storage periods will help prevent moisture build up in the lubrication cavities.
4. When bringing unit out of storage, check for loose bolts and damaged parts. Tighten and replace as
needed.
5. Check hydraulic cylinder for leaks and replace seal kit if needed. If the cylinder end cap has a
RETAINING RING, order item 25. If the cylinder cap has a LOCK WIRE, order item 30.
6. If the unit is equipped with a hydraulic hand pump, check the pump for leaks and proper fluid level.
Check the hydraulic hose connections for tightness and check the hose for any wear or damage. Refer to
the parts list on Page 14 to order replacement seal kits for the pump. The hydraulic hose can be obtained
by ordering item 10.
7. Proper storage and maintenance will extend the usage and performance of the unit.
