OWNER’S AND OPERATOR’S
RESPONSIBILITY
This manual is intended for use with your Lewis Spreader Body. Extra effort has
been made to provide for safe operation of this equipment. This manual as well as
the safety decals placed on the equipment is part of that effort. Your new Spreader
Body should perform the various functions for which it was designed if it is
maintained, adjusted to your specific conditions, and operated correctly.
It is the responsibility of the owner and every operator of this equipment to read
and understand this manual before initial startup, before each season, before
performing service or maintenance tasks and prior to storing the equipment. Each
employee who will work on or around this equipment should be instructed in how
to do so safely.
It is important to understand the operational methods and safety issues mentioned
in this manual. Lewis Brothers cannot anticipate all conceivable ways service and
operational functions might be performed and of the possible hazardous
consequences of such. Anyone using or servicing this equipment must first satisfy
themselves that their chosen methods do not jeopardize the safety of themselves,
others, or the equipment.
Read the warranty on page 9. The purchaser is required to fill out and return the
registration card supplied with this owner's manual within ten (10) days of
purchase to Lewis Brothers Manufacturing to be eligible for warranty coverage.
Genuine Lewis replacement parts will insure the durability and long life of your
Spreader Body. Lewis repair parts and optional equipment should be ordered
through your Lewis Brothers' Dealer.
Operators should thoroughly inspect the Spreader Body before and after each use.
All chains and bearings should be properly lubricated as specified, and any worn or
damaged parts repaired or replaced. Failure to repair or replace worn parts could
result in damage or excess wear to other parts.

MACHINE SETUP
TRACTOR SETTINGS
The Lewis Spreader Body is designed to be operated at 540 rpm PTO. If your
tractor has an option of a 540 or 1000 rpm PTO, you should install the 540 shaft.

Figure 1
ATTACHING SPREADER BODY TO THE TRACTOR
Attach the Spreader Body to the tractor's fixed drawbar using a heavy duty hitch
pin. Next, attach the hydraulic pump to the tractor PTO shaft. (Figure 1) Slide the
pump onto the PTO shaft as far as possible. Secure its position by wrapping the
chain on the torque arm around some portion of the tractor hitch which is secure
and will not allow the pump to slide off or spin once the PTO is engaged.
13
A good place to chain the pump is around the top link pin. (See figure 1) Always
try to pull the pump from the PTO after it is chained into place.
If the pump slides very far back on the shaft it is not snug enough. Take up
another link on the chain and repeat the process again.
Making this connection too tight may put excess pressure on the PTO shaft
resulting in damage to pump or shaft.
Once the pump is properly installed on the PTO shaft, the spreader body is ready to
begin operation.
The Lewis Spreader Body is designed to operate with the tractor PTO turning
within a range of 500 – 540 rpm for optional performance. 540 rpm is the most
desirable speed and will produce the maximum flow and pressure from the pump.
The material application rate can be controlled by adjusting the control valve
located at the rear of the machine. (Figure 2) By increasing the speed of the
unloading chain, the operator can increase the amount of material being applied.
The spreading can be increased or decreased by adjusting the tractor PTO speed.

TOWING AND TRANSPORTING
A tractor of sufficient weight and power is required to both pull and control a
Lewis Spreader Body over the terrain in the given area of operation. A tractor with
a minimum of 50 PTO horsepower is required for proper operation of the Lewis
Spreader Body. In order to have full control, your tractor must be able to maintain
traction under all turf or surface conditions. Additional weights may be required to
the front of the tractor to avoid unstable towing conditions.
If it becomes necessary to tow the Spreader Body for extended distances the
following is recommended. Store the hydraulic pump on the support pin located
on the tongue and secure it with the torque bar chain. Tie up all hoses to prevent
them from dragging or becoming damaged. Tongue weight for towing is
approximately 1300 to 1500 lbs. The equipment used for towing must be heavy
enough to pull the Spreader Body, but more importantly must be equipped to
safely stop under the additional load. Towing speed should not exceed 25 mph.
Maximum caution should be maintained at all times when transporting the Lewis
Spreader Body.
15
STORAGE
16
STORAGE
After each use, the Lewis Spreader Body should be washed down thoroughly
removing all litter, inside and out. After washing, treating with a disinfectant is
recommended in order to kill any remaining bacteria. The next step is treating the
machine with soluble oil to protect it from rust and corrosion. One product that
meets these requirements is called LPS#3. You may find this or other similar
products at your Lewis Poultry Housekeeper Dealer, tractor dealerships or farm
supply stores. It is important to remember that all chains must be properly
lubricated before and after each use and especially before storage.
When washing the Lewis Spreader Body, never allow a highpressure water stream to come in contact with bearings or idler seals. Water can be
forced into the bearing and will cause premature failure.
Check all safety decals and make any necessary replacements. Decals may be
obtained from your Lewis Dealer.

MAINTENANCE
Chain Adjustments
Periodical adjustments may be necessary to the unloading chain. Remove excess
slack in the unloading chain by adjusting the front shaft assembly. (figure 3) Be
sure that both sides are adjusted equally. Grease all bearings after each use, being
careful not to over-grease. Spray lubricant over machine after each use to protect
machine from rust.
