I. Safety
SAFETY
Most accidents occur as the result of failure to follow simple and
fundamental safety rules. For this reason, most accidents can be
prevented by recognizing the real cause and doing something about
it before the accident occurs.
Many conditions cannot be completely safeguarded against without
interfering with efficient operation and/or reasonable accessibility.
Therefore, you must study this Operator’s Manual and learn how to use the sprayer
controls for safe operation. Likewise, do not let anyone operate without instruction.
Do NOT make modifications such as weldments, add-ons, adaptations, or changes
from the original design of sprayer. Such changes and/or modifications may
become safety hazards to you and to others and will void all warranties.
If you have All Wheel Steer installed on your machine, pay special attention to
instructions, components, and safety warnings marked with “ ”.
Replace missing, faded, or damaged safety signs. See the operator’s manual
for correct sign and placement.
Do Not By-Pass Safety Start Switch

Start the machine from the operator’s seat only. The machine must be in
neutral to start.
Use Caution While Driving






Never drive too close to ditches, embankments, holes, mounds or
other obstacles.
Never drive on hills too steep for safe operation.
Reduce the sprayer speed while turning.
Do not permit passengers on machine when it is moving; they
may fall off or obstruct the operator’s view.
Check overhead clearance before driving under any overhead
obstructions. Contact with power lines can result in serious injury
or death.
Booms must be folded and in cradles when driving.
Operators with machines equipped with All Wheel Steer pay special attention!
5
I. Safety
Keep Riders off Machine

Do not permit passengers to ride on the machine or in the
cab. The only time passengers should be permitted is for
instructional or diagnostic purposes. The passenger should
be seated on the buddy seat next to the operator and never
allowed to ride outside of the cab.
Remove Paint before Welding or Heating




Avoid potentially toxic fumes and dust. Hazardous fumes can be
generated when paint is heated by welding, soldering, or using a
torch.
Do not use chlorinated solvents in areas where welding will take
place.
Do all work in an area that is well ventilated to carry toxic fumes
and dust away
Dispose of paint and solvents properly.
Avoid Heating near Pressurized Lines

Avoid torching, welding, and soldering near pressurized hydraulic
lines. Pressurized lines may accidentally burst when heat goes
beyond the immediate flame area.
Handle Fuel Safely– Avoid Fires





Always turn engine off and allow it to cool before re-fueling.
NEVER smoke while re-fueling.
Do not fill tank completely, fuel may expand and run over.
Always clean up spilled fuel with soapy water.
Keep a fire extinguisher close when re-fueling.
6
I. Safety
Operate Safely
Before moving sprayer, make sure there are no obstacles or persons in the path of travel.
Never operate a machine in the same field as walking personnel.
Always drive at a reasonable field speed.
Never operate sprayer on roadway with any solution in the tank. Additional weight caused
from partially full or full solution tanks may cause erratic or increased stopping distance.
Never operate the sprayer at transport speeds with a full tank. The wheel motors and
planetary gear hubs are not rated to with stand high speeds under full
loads and may over heat or blow out.
Make sure SMV and SIS emblem is in place and visible from rear when
traveling on public roadways.
Pull over to the side of the road before stopping.
Always come to a complete stop before reversing directions.
Keep a fire extinguisher close at all times.
Keep ALL shields in place.
Keep clear of all moving parts and keep others away when operating.
Do not wear loose fitting clothing that may be blown or drawn into moving parts.
Do not activate parking brake while machine is in motion.
Stop slowly to avoid “nose diving”.
Reduce speed for icy, wet, graveled or soft roadway surfaces.
Use flashers/hazard warning lights, day or night, unless prohibited
by law.
Keep away from overhead power lines. Serious injury or death to
you or others may result should the machine contact electrical
wires.
Never fold/unfold boom extension when main boom is in cradle.
Never operate sprayer with one boom out of cradle and the other
boom in cradle.
Do not adjust factory engine RPM settings.
Never use starting fluid to assist engine start up.
If equipped with ground speed sensing radar or light sensing depth units, do NOT look
directly into radar beam. It emits a very low intensity microwave signal which may cause
possible eye damage.
Operators with machines equipped with All Wheel Steer pay special attention!
7
I. Safety
Be Prepared


Be prepared for an emergency. Keep a fire extinguisher handy,
a first aid kit and clean water in the cab.
Make sure to service the fire extinguisher regularly. Keep an
accurate inventory of supplies in the first aid kit and dispose of
anything that has expired.
Wear Protective Clothing


Do not wear loose fitting clothes that could get caught in moving parts. Wear
safety equipment that is appropriate for the job.
Do not store chemical soaked clothes in the cab. Clean off as much mud
and dirt from your shoes as you can before entering the cab.
Protect Against Noise


Operating equipment safely requires the full attention of the operator. Do
not wear radio or music headphones while operating the machine.
Prolonged exposure to loud noise could cause loss of hearing. Wear
suitable hearing protection.
Battery Acid Accident Prevention
Avoid serious injury by avoiding battery acid contact with your body. Battery electrolyte contains
sulfuric acid that is strong enough to eat holes in clothing and cause blindness if splashed into
eyes.
Make sure to:
 Fill batteries in a well-ventilated area.
 Wear Personal Protective Equipment when servicing a battery.
 Avoid breathing in the fumes when recharging with electrolyte.
 Avoid spilling or dripping electrolyte.
 When charging a battery, connect positive cable to positive terminal and negative cable
to negative terminal. Failure to do so may result in an explosion and cause injury
8
I. Safety
If you spill on yourself:
 Immediately begin flushing affected area with cold water while
removing any contaminated clothing and shoes. Continue to flush
the area for a minimum of 15 minutes.
 Call a physician.
 While transporting or waiting for medical attention, apply
compresses of iced water or immerse affected area in iced water.
Do not allow tissue to freeze.
 Do not apply creams or ointments until you have been seen by a
physician.
If acid is swallowed:
 Do not induce vomiting.
 Drink large amounts of water.


Get medical attention immediately!
Do not neutralize the acid.
If fumes are inhaled:
 Move the person into fresh air.
 Do not give artificial respiration to a person that is able to
breathe on their own.
 Give CPR only if there is no breathing AND no pulse.
 Seek medical attention IMMEDIATELY!
Handle Agricultural Chemicals Safely
Agricultural chemicals used in applications can be harmful to your health
and the environment if not used carefully.
 Always follow the manufacturer’s label directions for use.
 Never allow chemicals to come in contact with your skin or eyes.
 NEVER pour chemicals into an empty tank, fill tank half full of water
first.
 Dispose of empty chemical containers properly.
 Wash spilled chemicals or spray residue from the sprayer to prevent
corrosion and deterioration.
 Select safe areas to fill, flush, calibrate, and clean sprayer where
chemicals will not run off to contaminate people, animals, vegetation,
or water supply.
 Never place a spray nozzle to your lips in an attempt to unclog it.
 Do not spray when wind is in excess of chemical manufacturer’s
recommendation.
 Store chemicals in their original containers with the label intact.
 Store chemicals in a separate, locked building.
9
I. Safety

Wear protective equipment as recommended by chemical manufacturer.
Safe Hydraulic Maintenance



Always practice personal safety when performing service or
maintenance on the hydraulic system.
Use caution when working with hydraulic fluid under pressure.
Escaping fluid can have sufficient force to penetrate your skin
causing serious injury. This fluid may also be hot enough to burn.
Always lower the load or relieve the pressure before repairing a
hydraulic oil leak.
Beware of Exhaust Fumes

Never run the machine in a closed building. Proper ventilation is
required. Use an exhaust pipe extension to remove fumes if you must
operate in a building. Also open doors and windows to bring in enough
outside air into the area.
Boom Leveling System
 Unplug all cylinder sensors before welding on the machine or
boom.
Oil over Air Scenarios



Initially when a new cylinder is run on the machine, it should
NEVER be connected to the booms on both ends. Only one end
should be connected and then the air should be bled out of the
cylinder by activating the cylinder in both directions to completion
at least two times. Then when initially connecting the cylinder to
allow full operation of the boom, be aware of the changes that
have taken place and be ready for possible rapid movement if
some air would possibly still be trapped in the cylinder.
DO NOT ALLOW PEOPLE TO BE STANDING IN LOCATIONS WHERE THE BOOM
COULD STRIKE THEM!
MAKE SURE NOTHING IS OBSTRUCTING THE UNPINNED END OF THE CYLINDER
AS IT MAY MOVE SUDDENLY.
10
I. Safety
Cold Oil Scenarios

If the oil temperature is less than 50°F, the operator could
experience some significant control loss on the 90ft & 100ft fold
cylinders. These cylinders are the main cylinders affected by overrunning loads due to the weight rotation of the boom during fold
in/out situations. When the oil is cold, the valve response is not as
fast or as accurate. So when having to lift the weight the cylinder
will move slower, but in trying to suspend the weight, the weight
may cause faster movement because the valve is not dampening
the flow like it normally would. THIS SITUATION ALSO REQUIRES
THE OPERATOR TO MAKE SURE NO ONE IS AROUND THE
BOOM DURING OPERATION!
General Maintenance Safety




Turn off engine before checking, adjusting, repairing, lubricating, or
cleaning any part of the sprayer.
When servicing the radiator, let the engine cool before removing
pressurized cap.
Disconnect battery ground cable and turn main battery switch off
before servicing electrical system or welding on machine.
Each Hagie machine outfitted with AWS has position sensing internal
to the steering cylinders. Please disconnect each sensor before
welding on the machine. Then re-connect when done welding.
Operating Optional Components
Tread Width
 Select a tread setting to fit between crop rows.
Sprayer Booms
 Cradle booms when leaving sprayer unattended.
 Make sure booms are folded when cradled.
 Select a safe area before folding/unfolding booms.
 Clear area of personnel.
 Check for overhead obstructions.
 Do not fold or unfold booms near power lines. Contact with power lines can result in
serious injury or death.
 Do not fold/unfold boom extensions when main boom is in the cradle.
 Do not operate sprayer with one boom out of cradle and other boom in cradle.
Operators with machines equipped with All Wheel Steer pay special attention!
11
I. Safety
All Wheel Steer Safety
Many of the precautions listed below are repetitious to the precautions
for a standard machine. It is very important that they receive special
consideration. Failure to obey the precautions and operating
instructions regarding the ALL WHEEL STEER system will result in
serious injury or death and machine damage.
 Make sure that you understand how to operate the machine
with the standard set-up (conventional steering only). You will
need to get a feel for how the drive system works by sitting
behind the wheel and driving the machine.
 It is very important to understand all of the aspects that are
related to the ALL WHEEL STEER system. You will need to
know how to turn the system on or off and understand when
the system will limit itself or even turn itself off. You will also
want to understand the graphics and tools that will help you
maintain your system operating to your liking.
 REDUCE SPRAYER SPEED BEFORE TURNING.
 NEVER DRIVE ON HILLS TOO STEEP FOR SAFE
OPERATION.
 NEVER DRIVE NEAR DITCHES, EMBANKMENTS, HOLES,
OR OTHER SIMILAR OBSTACLES.
 COME TO A COMPLETE STOP BEFORE REVERSING
DIRECTION.
 ALWAYS DRIVE AT A REASONABLE FIELD SPEED.
Operators with machines equipped with All Wheel Steer pay special attention!
12
I. Safety
Rotating Beacon
There is a rotating beacon mounted on the left hand side of
the operator’s station. This light is used for increased visibility
to others.
The light will illuminate when the flashing hazard switch is
activated. (Hazard lights will not come on in field mode)
E-Stop
The emergency stop is located to the front of the side
console. Do not use this button for non-emergency stopping
or as a parking brake.
The emergency stop switch provides a quick and positive
method for stopping the engine in an emergency situation.
When the button is depressed, it locks in position and
removes the ignition signal to shut down the engine. To reset
the switch, turn the button in the direction of the arrows on the
face of the button.
Operator Presence Switch
The operator presence switch (OPS) is located in the seat. The switch
protects the operator from exposure to moving parts or hazards in
regards to the detasseler cutting blades and quad pullers by
introducing an electrical interlock that ensures that when the operator is
out of the cab the operation of these functions is stopped.
This is achieved by using the seat switch to prevent the detasseler
assemblies from operating the machine actuators if the operator is not
seated for 3 seconds.

Hydrostatic Lever
The hydrostatic lever is used to control the direction of
motion of the machine and the speed at which it
travels. It is a part of the ACE hydrostatic system or
the Automatically Controlled Engine hydrostatic drive.
To learn more about the ACE system, refer to the
section on the hydrostatic drive system.
The lever also houses controls for the spray system
and foam marking system. For more information on
these controls, refer to the section on the spray
system.
Speed Control
Another feature of the hydrostatic drive system is the
speed control. This feature will help the operator to
regain consistent field speeds when re-entering a field
from the end rows.
The speed control will maintain its setting until you
reset it. It does not have to be re-set each time you
turn off the machine.
For more information on how to use the speed control
feature, refer to the section on the hydrostatic drive
system.
Throttle Switch
The throttle switch (A) is used to control engine speed
(RPM). In field state, the engine speed can go
between 850 and 2500 RPM. In road state, the engine
speed can go between 850 and 2100 RPM. The
switch works with a timer to tell the engine how fast to
turn. The longer the operator holds the switch in either
direction, the more the engine will speed up or slows
down (Note that this is not the only way the engine
receives this information; refer to the section on ACE).
The buttons on the side of the hydrostatic lever (B) are
to control the speed ranges within the RPM setting.
For more information on the throttle controls, refer to
the section on the hydrostatic drive system.
45
VI. Operator’s Station
Parking Brake
The parking brake switch is located next to the throttle
switch on the side console. The switch also controls the
ladder. The brake switch must be on to lower the
ladder and to operate the side fill or pressure washer (if
equipped).
The parking brake is not intended for normal or
emergency stopping and will not engage if the machine
is traveling over 1 mile per hour. Activating the brake
while the machine is still moving is hazardous to the operator and the sprayer. Bring the sprayer
to a complete stop with the hydrostatic lever in the neutral position before applying the parking
brake.
Solution Pump Switch
The solution pump switch is used to turn on/off the
solution pump. This is the ONLY way to turn on/off the
solution pump. By leaving the switch in the ON
position, the pump will continue to run which could
cause damage to the solution pump. Refer to the Spray
System Section for more information on the solution
pump.
Forward, Neutral, Reverse
The hydrostatic lever is used to determine the direction
of motion of the machine. To move the machine
forward, pull the lever slightly to the left and push
forward. The farther you push, the faster the speed of
the machine.
To stop the machine, or put the machine in neutral,
slowly pull the lever back to the center position and
move it slightly to the right. The neutral position must
be met before changing direction of the machine. The
machine must also be in neutral before several
functions can be performed.
To move the machine in reverse, move the lever to the far right and slowly pull back. The farther
back the lever is pulled, the faster the machine’s speed.
46
VI. Operator’s Station

VII. MD3 Operating Instructions
Drive State (F1)
The drive state of the machine is displayed at the bottom far
left corner of the screen. The drive state is a safety measure
that cannot be changed unless the machine is in neutral. The
machine has three drive states, road, field and fault. The drive
state helps the machine determine what kind of work it is
meant to do, field work or transport work.
In road state, the machine is limited on what functions can be
operated, for instance, the spray booms are not able to be
operated. Road state is used for the transporting of the
machine and therefore will allow the machine to reach
maximum speed. The engine speed in road state can range
from 850 to 2100 RPM.
Field state allows the functions of the attachments, such as the
spray boom, to operate. All wheel steer (if equipped) is also
only allowed while in field state. The machine is also limited on
speed and is unable to reach maximum speed while in the
field. The engine speed in field state can range from 850 to
2500 RPM.
The third drive state, “drive fault” (B), may show if there is a
system error that affects the machine’s ability to function. This
is called a drive fault and the MD3 should show a message
explaining why it happened and what if anything should be
done. Severe warnings will be accompanied by a shut down or
power down of systems to protect the machine (C). This drive
state is automatic and cannot be voluntarily selected.
To toggle between the two drive states, make sure there are no drive faults present and that the
machine is in neutral. Press the F1 button until the desired drive state appears below “Drive
State” on the display screen.
F2 Function Button
The F2 function button is not directly associated with anything

All conditions must be met before AWS will engage. First the
machine must be in “field” drive state, and second, the
machine must be in gear 1 or 2. If these conditions are not
met, the AWS will remain on, but will still be in conventional
steering.
The F3 function button will only toggle the AWS from ON to
OFF, the machine will automatically determine if the proper
conditions are met and change the status of the drive
functions. These changes will be reflected on the MD3. When
AWS is activated and engaged, the display will read “coord”
shortened for “coordinated steering” (B). If the AWS is on, but
not engaged, the display will read “normal” meaning that you
are in conventional steering, but the AWS will engage
automatically when the proper conditions are met. When the
AWS is not on, the display will read “OFF”.
Float (F4)
The float button (A) will only appear if an attachment requiring
float functions is connected to the machine. Such attachments
would include the Nitrogen Tool Bar. If there isn’t an
attachment connected that requires float, there will be dashes
that appear on the display.
The functions of float are not discussed any further in this
manual, but are included in the manuals for the attachments
that require its use.

Machine Hours
The second page of the MD3 is titled “Machine Hours” and
can be found by using the Down Arrow (A) key to toggle to
the next page from the Home Page.
This page is a service tool for operators to use to set and
track service intervals. There are several things that need to
be serviced at specific intervals and you will see these
intervals on this page (50 hrs, 100 hrs, 500 hrs, etc.). Please
refer to the service section of this manual for details regarding
which parts of the machine need serviced and the procedure
to perform the service at each interval.
Some of the service intervals can be adjusted to suit your
schedule if you do not want to wait as long as possible to
perform some of the services, such as oil and filter servicing.
The default on the Machine Hours page is the recommended
practices of the engine manufacturer, however, these
practices are also discussed as being fairly loosely interpreted
based on how the machine is used and they can be done on
shorter intervals than what is recommended. The default will
not be able to be extended past the recommendation.
When a service interval is reached, a “manual” icon (B) will appear at the top of the Home Page
and a message telling you that a service interval has been reached (C). The message will

Battery Disconnect
The STS is set up with a battery disconnect safety
device. The device is located on the left side of the
rear frame cross tube. When the key is turned to the
OFF position the electrical circuit is broken therefore
rendering the machine unable to start. Do not use
this device as a safety when working on the electrical
system-disconnect the negative battery cable before
servicing.
This device is also used an anti-theft safeguard. Keep
the key in a safe place, out of the machine when it is
not in use.
Parking Brake
The parking brake will engage the charge pressure
falls below 150 PSI or the engine is shut off. To engage the brakes manually, press the top of
the Parking Brake/Ladder switch located on the side
console.
To disengage the brakes, press the bottom of the

IX. Hydraulic System
Gear Pump
The hydraulic pumps circulate the hydraulic oil throughout the
necessary systems and back through a cooler before returning
it to the reservoir.
During detasseling operations, the gear pump and relief
manifold (A) are used to supplement the hydraulic pump in
maintaining the correct operating pressure while still allowing
the oil to move through the filtration and cooling systems.
If the level in the reservoir drops too low for safe operation, you must
shut down the engine immediately to prevent damage to the hydraulic
system.
Auxiliary Hydraulic System (Hydraulic pump and Gear pump)
The auxiliary hydraulic system is a load sensing, pressure
compensated system with efficiency in mind. That means it only
pumps the amount of oil needed to do the job.
The pump is mounted to the “front” of the second hydrostatic pump
(A). The system consists of a single variable displacement pump that
supplies the required hydraulics to operate the full time power steering
unit, boom control cylinders (lift, level, and fold), tread adjust, ladder,
outer boom breakaway, and the solution pump.
The pump circulates the hydraulic oil throughout the necessary
systems and back through a cooler before returning it to the
reservoir. If the level in the reservoir drops too low to safely
operate the machine you must shut down the engine
immediately to prevent damage to the hydraulic system.
The return oil from the load sense pump is mixed with the oil
from the gear pump (B) on the side of the engine. This pump
supplies a constant flow of oil from the hydraulic tank to the
cooler and then back to the tank through the filter. This is
considered a kidney loop and is dedicated to the cooling and
filtration of the hydraulic system.
The gear pump has a dedicated steering pump. The dedicated
pump ensures the steering circuit is getting the flow that is
needed. This allows the auto steer to have less potential
problems.
78
IX. Hydraulic System
Power Steering System
The power steering system is a true dedicated steering
circuit. No other function will share oil with the steering
circuit with full time control, re-phase centering, master
slave steering circuit on the front steering and double
action steer by position with rear steering.(See the
section on All Wheel Steer for more information)
Standard/Conventional Steering (yellow) All Wheel Steer (Red)
Ladder
To raise or lower the ladder you will need to locate the
BRAKE/LADDER switch at the front of the right hand
console (A). When the brake is applied the ladder will
lower automatically. The ladder will not raise until the
machine is running and the switch has been returned
to the OFF position.
Caution: Upright ladder is not a service platform or step. DO NOT step on the ladder while
in upright position. DO NOT lower the ladder while anyone is on the ground near the sprayer. DO
NOT attempt to lower the ladder from the ground level.
Operators with machines equipped with All Wheel Steer pay special attention!
79
IX. Hydraulic System
Hydraulic Tread Adjust
To adjust the tread widths hydraulically, follow the instructions
below:
1. Survey the surroundings and allow yourself enough
room to adjust the tread in either forward or reverse.
2. Locate the tread adjustment switches on the rear of
the side console (A). They are marked LF (left front),
LR (left rear), RF (right front), and RR (right rear). The
legs may be moved in or out on each side
independently*. While driving between one and two
miles per hour, press and hold the desired switches to
move the tread in the desired direction. Pressing the
top of any switch will move that leg OUT and pressing
the bottom of any switch will move that leg IN.
3. Observe the tread width on each leg. The front legs
use indicator decals (B) while the rear legs use
electronic sensors and display the readings on the
message center (C). Release the switches when the
tread indicator reaches the desired tread width.
4. After tread adjustment is complete, all four tread width
indicators should have identical readings.
Caution: Never adjust the hydraulic tread width on a public
roadway. Make sure the sprayer is on level ground where there
are no ditches or valleys to interfere while you perform the
adjustment.
80
*When a significant adjustment is
being made, it is recommended that
you adjust one leg at a time and do
the adjustments in smaller
increments. Binding may occur if a
larger adjustment is made all at
once, especially if adjusting one leg
at a time

Pressure Washer (If Equipped)
Before operating the Hagie pressure washer, make sure there
is a sufficient amount of water in the rinse tank.
1. Open the supply valve on the rinse tank (A).
2. Turn the washer pump on by using switch (B).
Warning: Pressurized water can be abrasive, never
directly spray fragile or sensitive materials. Failure to do so
could result in bodily or machine damage.
Caution: Never run the pressure washer pump without a

Detasseling Heads (Quad Pullers/Cutter Heads)
The detasseling heads each have a hydraulic motor (A, B) that
is responsible for the rotation of the tires or blade. Careful
attention must be paid to the flow direction when replacing
hoses! Failure to properly attach hoses may result in personal
injury or machine damage.
Each set of motors is individually turned on with a switch
located on the combo control panel (C). The switches
correspond with the lift sections (not the detasseling heads)
from left to right when sitting in the operator’s seat. If there are
only four lift sections, the first and last switch will not control
anything.
Depress the top of the switch to activate the set of detasseling
heads and the bottom of the switch to turn them off.
The motors are hydraulically driven in direct relation to engine
RPM. This means that in order to have the optimal pressure
for the motors the engine RPM must be maintained at 2500
RPM during operation.
Electro-hydraulic Lift Control Valve
The electro-hydraulic valve or lift valve is located on the left
hand side of the operator when seated in the operator’s seat.
It controls the lift cylinders in their upward and downward
movements.
86
IX. Hydraulic System
Motor Control Valve
The motor control valve (A) is an adjustable needle valve that
controls the flow of hydraulic oil to the hydraulic motors of the
detasseling heads.
The solenoids are opened using the switches on the combo
control panel (B). Depress the top of the switch to turn them on,
and the bottom of the switch to turn them off.
The machine’s drive state must be in “field mode” and the main
solution switch on the hydrostatic lever must be activated for
the hydraulic motors to work.
Relief Manifold
The relief manifold (A) controls the amount of hydraulic oil flow
from the cooling system and into the auxiliary system when 3
or more lift sections (B) (cylinders) are activated.
The lift control valve has a .042” orifice which gives the
operator better control of the speeds in which the lifts operate
and the evenness of their operation.
87
IX. Hydraulic System
Outrigger Fold Valve
The outriggers are hydraulically folded in and out by the
operator using the left or right fold switch on the combo
console (B). The buttons control the outrigger fold valve (A).
To fold the outriggers out, depress the bottom of the button. To
fold the outriggers in, depress the top of the button. Do not
operate the detasseling heads with the outriggers folded in.
88
IX. Hydraulic System
Depth Command
The depth command allows the operator to adjust the depth of
the LS (light sensing) system (C) from the operator’s seat. The
switches are located on the combo switch panel (A). They are
labeled Lift 1 though Lift 6. They correspond with the lifts from
left to right while sitting in the operator’s seat. If there are only
four lifts, the switches in the first and last positions will not
control anything.
To lower the cutting or pulling height, select the appropriate
switch and push down. This will extend the actuator (B) raising

The spray booms are controlled by an electrohydraulic system. This system consists of operator
manipulated switches located in the sprayer’s cab and
hydraulic cylinders attached to the booms. It provides
lift, level, horizontal extension, and vertical extension.
60’/80’/90’ and 60’/100’ Spray Boom
STS 90’ or 100’ spray booms are equipped with a
hydraulic breakaway circuit (A). When folded out as an
80, 90, or 100 foot spray boom, a one-way hydraulic
circuit on the outer boom section provides outer boom
breakaway functions. The outer breakaway is selfresetting and will return to normal operating position
after it has cleared the hazard.
Hydraulically folding the extensions of the 60/80/90 or
60/100 foot boom system, adjusting the spray valves,
and recalibrating the spray console essentially turns it
into a 60 foot boom. (See the next page for diagrams
and continue reading this section for more
information) Manually folding the outer extensions of
the 60/80/90 foot boom, adjusting the spray valves, and recalibrating the spray console turns it
into an 80 foot boom. Refer to the section on the spray console for information on calibration.

Boom Breakaways
STS 120’ spray boom is equipped with hydraulic and mechanical breakaways. When folded out
as a 120 foot spray boom, the outer section is protected by a mechanical breakaway set by a
spring (B).
This works in the forward and back direction. The outer breakaway is self-resetting and will
return to normal operating position after it has cleared the hazard. The main spray section has a
hydraulic breakaway that is manually reset. The main section will break away back 45 degrees
and then stop so it will not hit the rest of the machine (A).
Re-charging breakaway circuit Auto/Manual
To re-charge breakaway circuits in the auto/manual state, push the corresponding horizontal
extending out button on hydrostatic control handle. Right extend out will re-charge the breakaway circuits on the right side of the boom and left extend out will re-charge the break-away
circuits on the left side in the auto/manual fold state.

120 Boom Page
Machines with the 120ft boom option installed have
changes to the display to allow for more feedback to the
operator and to help the operator achieve some of the
functions needed in certain operations.
The first change is the addition of an indicator light to
alert the operator when the boom is folded out and the
breakaway function is set and the boom is ready for
operation. Fig. A shows a green indicator light showing
operational status. If the light is not green, a breakaway
situation has occurred. Observe boom to determine
where breakaway occurred. Push corresponding
horizontal extending out button on hydrostatic control
handle, Fig. B. Right extend out will re-charge the
breakaway circuit on the right side of the boom and left
extend out will re-charge the breakaway circuit on the left
side in the Auto-Fold state. To re-charge breakaway
circuits in the manual state, each individual “out”
direction will need to be activated.
Fig. C shows the Miscellaneous Page that contains the
status of the NORAC communication, the activating
buttons for changing the fold state of the boom, the roll
commands for the boom, and the spray width for the
boom. The N-Add and A-80 means that the NORAC
system is communicating with the Hagie system correctly.
If this reads N-Add and 0 state then the communication is
not correct. See trouble-shooting section.
Power Lines
The 120ft boom is longer than any other boom offered by
Hagie Manufacturing Company, we cannot stress enough
that extreme caution must be observed when operating
the equipment around power lines! Be absolutely sure that
there is more than sufficient clearance when transporting,
opening the boom, or spraying around power lines!

Disabling the Norac System
When using the Norac boom leveling system in auto mode it
can be disabled to avoid a potentially hazardous situation. To
disable the Norac system press “M” on the UC5 for manual or
you can press any one of the following Hagie boom control
switches: Lift (transom raise/ lower), or the left or right level
up/down. If the Norac stops working the auto and manual fold
functions will still work. For more information on the Norac
switches, refer to your Norac manuals. For detailed
information on trouble shooting, refer to the Norac manual.
Enabling/Disabling the “NORAC Tap On” Command
On the 120’ booms the operator is able to turn Norac Auto
Mode on by tapping transom down on the hydrostatic lever.
To enable/disable the NORAC tap on command select the
NORAC enable auto sw page in the operator adjustments
page in the MD3. To enable set the dial to a value of 1. To
disable set the dial to a value of 0 and press OK.
Disabling the NORAC tap on command will allow the operator
to tap the transom down switch without NORAC turning on.
Auto-Fold
Auto-fold is the preferred method for the most effective
spraying operations.
Auto-fold is a feature that makes operation of the machine
easier for the operator. During this operation the controller will
position all boom sections automatically with the push of one
button.
On the MD3 module, from startup/home page press the down
arrow twice to get to the Misc Page (A). Push the F1 button

Rolling boom
The roll command buttons will cause the boom to roll either clockwise (as viewed from the cab)
or counter-clockwise. These buttons are only active when the main booms are folded almost all
the way out. This helps prevent an operator from accidentally rolling the booms into the
machine.
Rear boom (If Equipped)
The rear boom is controlled through the center spray section of
the front boom. To route the solution from the front boom section
to the rear set the three-way valve handle (A) vertical. Now the
front boom section will no longer spray and the rear boom will
now be functional.
Attaching the Rear Boom
1. Slide rear boom (B) into the boom mounts (C) on the
bumper.
2. Bolt rear boom onto the mounts by siding the mounting
hardware (D) inside the boom tubing and bolting through
one wall of the boom
3. Hook up the solution with the quick-connect fittings (E)
located by the machine bumper and the lower right side of
the rear boom.
Removing the Rear Boom
1. Disconnect the solution line at the quick connect (E).
2. Unbolt the rear boom (B) from the mounting brackets (C).
3. Remove the rear boom from the boom mounts.

Solution System
The solution system is a constantly monitored
and continuously adjusted computer controlled
system. The cab mounted digital console
receives information from various inputs to help
determine GPM (gallons per minute) and GPA
(gallons per acre).
This section explains the components of the
solution system. Please read the entire section
before operating the solution system. This
section is not designed to replace the Raven
manual and the numbers used may not reflect
your specific situation. Read all manuals before
operating the equipment.
Getting Started:
1. Calibrate the spray system console.
Refer to the spray system manual for
calibration procedures.
2. Check the quantity of solution in the
tank.
3. Start the engine.
4. Open the tank valves, if desired, activate the agitation system.
5. Press the F1 switch on the MD3 until the machine’s drive state reads “field”.
6. Turn on the main spray power.
7. Place the individual boom solution valve switches to the ON position.
8. Slowly move the hydrostatic lever forward to obtain the desired ground speed.
9. Frequently observe the pressure gauge. When it drops to zero, or spray pattern
deteriorates, shut off the main spray power, solution pump, and agitation system until
refilling solution.

Solution Tank
The solution tank is a 1400 gallon stainless steel tank. The tank
has a variable sparge type agitation system.
Solution Pump
The solution pump (A) is a centrifugal type hydraulic pump that
is controlled by the Pulse Width Modulated Valve (B) and the
precision console (C). The pump draws the solution out of the
tank at the rate determined during the calibration of the
precision console. It dispenses it through the many valves and
hoses that make up the spray system. The pump also
dispenses fluids through the agitation system and the rinse
systems.
105
X. Spray System
Flow Meter
The flow meter located in the main solution line monitors the
solution flow and sends information back to the console and
control valve. If the flow rate is not within the parameters
programmed, the control valve will compensate by either
opening or closing. If the rate continues to be outside the
parameters, an alarm will sound signaling a low flow rate. (See
the precision console guide for more information on low flow
limit)
Solution Pressure Gauge
The pressure gauge gives you a constant visual display of the
amount of the solution being applied (measured in PSI). The
pressure, as determined by the pulse width modulated control
valve, will vary according to ground speed. If applying solution
manually, the solution pressure gauge visually informs the
operator of needed manual adjustments. The gauge also
shows when there is a drop in pressure indicating that the
solution tank maybe empty or there is a problem with the
system.
Individual Boom Solution Valve Switches
The spray booms are divided into sections that are
independently supplied with solution and can therefore be shut
off or turned on independently. The hydro-electric boom
solution valves are controlled by a row of switches mounted
on the right hand console (A).
Sixty foot boom configurations are divided into five sections and the valves are mounted on the
transom. Eighty, ninety, and one hundred and twenty foot booms are divided into nine sections
with three of the valves mounted on the transom and one on each boom.
Boom Solution Valve L.E.D. Indicators
Boom solution valve status is displayed in the cab by a series
of L.E.D. indicators. Each indicator will illuminate if that
particular boom solution valve is turned OFF.
106
X. Spray System
Solution Tank Valve
The solution tank valve (A) controls the amount of solution
coming out of the tank. The valve is controlled from inside the
cab with the TANK VALVE switch (C) located on the right hand
console.
Tank Sump Valve
The tank sump valve (B) is a ball type valve that has to be
turned on and off manually. This valve is to allow the fluid into
the tank from the fill option.
Agitation
The speed of the sparge agitation system (stainless steel tank
option) or the inductor agitation system (poly tank option) is
controlled by a variable flow solution valve (A) mounted on the
solution pump (B). The agitation switch (C) on the right hand
console controls the rate of flow through the sparge system.
While watching the indicator on the agitation valve, increase or
decrease the flow rate with the control switch. To increase the
flow, press the switch up. To decrease the flow, press the
switch down. When the desired rate of flow is achieved,
release the switch.
To turn the agitation system off, decrease the flow rate all the
way down.
107
X. Spray System
Main Solution Switch
Main spray power can be controlled from a switch on the
hydrostatic lever (A). This controls the panel of boom solution
valve switches. The main switch must be on to supply the
individual switches with voltage. This allows you to turn all of
the boom solution valves ON or OFF at the same time such as
turning them off when you arrive at the end rows and turning
them back on when you re-enter the field. The individual
switches allow you to turn the valves ON or OFF separately.
When the main spray power is ON a green indicator light
located on the left side of the MD3 above the tachometer
reading will illuminate and a white indicator light (B), mounted
in the cab, will also illuminate.
Solution Pump Switch
The solution pump switch is used to turn on/off the solution
pump. This is the ONLY way to turn on/off the solution pump.
By leaving the switch in the ON position, the pump will
continue to run which could cause damage to the solution
pump.
108

Solution Quick Fill
To fill the solution tank, make sure the sump valve under the
tank (A) is open. To access the front fill, pull the front fill latch
lever out (B) and lower the assembly. Connect your solution
supply to the front fill and fill to the desired level.
You may also fill the rinse tank (C) from the ground level with
an owner supplied connection. When finished, shut off all of
the valves and return the front fill to the locked position. See
the next page for information regarding the use of the side fill
inductor for filling the solution tank.

combo control panel (B) that has the same function as
the button on the hydrostatic lever.
Depress the top of either button to raise all the row
units. Depress the bottom of the switch to lower all the
row units.
Learn how to program the parameters of these switches
in the section on Tasseltrol® programming.
Tasseltrol®
The Hagie Tasseltrol®/ LS System 12™ control box is
used for the programming of the detasseling heads as
well as the depth command system. This control box
can also be used to control the detasseling heads
manually.
Combo Control Panel
The combo control panel houses most of the switches
for the detasseling system. More information on the
functions of the switches can be found in the Hydraulics
section of this manual.
None of the functions of the detasseling system will
function if the machine is not in “field” drive state.

XIII. Quick-Tach System
QUICK-TACH SYSTEM
The Hagie “Quick-tach” system is a convenient way of changing between sprayer attachments.
Warning: When removing or attaching the booms observe the
following safety items.





Select a safe area before folding/unfolding booms.
The boom extension/fold switch controls both the left and right
boom. Monitor both sides during the boom extension/fold
sequence.
Clear area of personnel.
Check for overhead obstructions.
Do not fold or unfold booms near power lines. Contact with power lines can result in
serious injury or death.
Caution: When operating or positioning the booms observe the following safety items to
avoid injury or equipment damage.
 Do not fold/unfold boom extensions when main boom is in the cradle.
 Do not operate sprayer with one boom out of cradle and other boom in cradle.
 Do not transport machine without booms folded and in cradle.
Removing the boom
1. Determine where to place the boom once it is off
the machine.
2. Lower the boom and secure the boom stands on
the down position.
3. With the booms folded, horizontally fold the booms
so that the folded tip is approximately even with the
rear of the cab.
4. Disengage the quick-tach lock assemblies.
5. Slowly and gently lower the boom and transom
assembly until the quick-tach hook is free of the lock pin.
6. Make sure the solution valves are OFF and turn off the engine before disconnecting any
hoses or electrical lines.
7. Once you have cleared the lock pin, unhook the hydraulic, solution, electrical, and foam
marker lines (if equipped), being careful not to leave the ends in a place that they may
get damaged or contaminated.
8. If no other attachment is going to be installed, re-lock the quick-tach lock assembly to
keep it safe from damage. Be sure to unlock it again when installing an attachment.
9. Start the machine and slowly back out and away from the boom. Alarms will sound
notifying you of modules being offline; accept the warnings on the MD3.
123
XIII. Quick-Tach System
Storage
When looking for a place to store the boom, there are
three important things to consider:
1. Level ground: The ground must be relatively
level to help prevent tip over. Look at the
ground in all directions. Level ground will also
minimize stress on the frame of the attachment
while in storage.
2. Space: The boom option has to be partially
open in order for it to stand properly. Make sure
that there is adequate room to allow for the
boom.
3. Accessibility: Make sure that there is enough room that the boom is not blocking
anything or is blocked.
If temporarily storing the boom on a soft surface, such as grass, it may be necessary to put
blocks under the stand’s feet to prevent the attachment from sinking into the ground. It is not
recommended that booms be stored on a soft surface for an extended period of time because of
the risk of the soil settling even when blocks are used.
Boom Stands
If the boom option is equipped with boom stands,
there are two on the transom and one on each of the
inner sections of the boom. Boom stands are an
option and therefore may not be on the boom.
Contact Hagie Customer Service Department to order
stands.
The stands are brackets attached to the end of the first boom section on both
the left and right boom and two on the transom. Each stand has a “leg” with a
“foot” on the bottom. Each has a hex bolt in the top hole of the leg to secure it
from sliding off, and a snap lock pin in the hole directly below the bracket to
maintain its position.
Do not leave the stands in the lowered position at any time
while moving the boom. Damage may occur to the boom if
the stand were to catch uneven ground or an unseen object.
Raise the foot all the way up and place the pin in the hole
above the bracket.
124
XIII. Quick-Tach System
Opening the Boom
The booms must be partially open for stability while
unattached from the machine. Unfold the booms to
approximately 45° while maintaining sufficient
clearance for repositioning during reattachment.
This position will allow the booms to sit level with the
transom without causing too much stress on either part. It will also keep the weight from shifting
too much either way (rearward or forward) which could cause the boom to tip over or be difficult
to connect or disconnect.
Disengage the Lock Assembly
Disengage the lock pin assembly only after the boom
has been lowered the close to the ground.
To disengage the lock assembly, pull the pin out as far
as it will go. Once the pin is out as far as it will go, it
should lock in the out position. Make sure that the lock
assembly does not re-lock while you are trying to
remove the boom.
Lower the Boom to the Ground
Slowly, and gently ease the boom to the ground.
Continue to lower the boom until the quick attach hooks
have cleared the lock pin.
A “bounce back” effect may be felt when the weight of
the boom has been relieved from the machine. Once
the airbags have cycled, the machine will adjust to the
new weight.
125
XIII. Quick-Tach System
Disconnect Solution, Electrical, and Hydraulic Lines
Once the lock pin has been cleared, all hoses and electrical
lines must be disconnected.
Make sure that the solution valve is OFF. There may be a
small amount of solution leak out. If it doesn’t stop or is
excessive, check the valve switch. If the switch is off, contact
Hagie Customer Service Department for repair or parts.
A machine may have seven points of disconnection from the
boom:
(A) The electrical pigtail on the right hand side of the
machine
(B) Three hydraulic disconnects on the left side of the
machine
(C)The rear wheel nozzle (solution) on the right side
(D) Main solution disconnect on the right side of the
machine, above the front wheel
(E) If the machine is equipped with the foam marker
option, there are two hoses near the electrical pigtail to
disconnect
(F) Motor and fold controls for combo on the right side
of the machine (Next page)
126
XIII. Quick-Tach System
Remember to use the caps that are provided for the hoses. If
the cap is missing, cover the opening with a plastic bag
secured with tape until a replacement can be ordered from
Hagie Customer Service Department (see Parts Manual).
Hoses may also be able to be connected together. Do not
connect hoses that have different solution flowing through
them.
Pull away from the boom after everything is disconnected. The
lift arms will hold position because of an auto-block that keeps
pressure in the lift cylinders.
WARNING: Turn the engine OFF before disconnecting any hoses or electrical lines!
Failure to do so may result in serious injury or death.
127
XIII. Quick-Tach System
Connecting the Boom
1. Square up to the boom. Make sure the
quick attach lock assemblies are open.
2. Pull into the boom slowly.
3. After squarely pulling into the boom, check
to see that the quick-tach hooks is high
enough to go over the lock pins. If the
hooks are high enough, no adjustments
need to be made to the machine. Continue
to pull into the boom until the hook
openings are above the lock pins.
4. Turn the engine OFF before connecting
any hoses or electrical lines.
5. Re-attach all solution, electrical, hydraulic, and foam marker lines (if equipped). If you
are attaching to something other than the boom, be sure you read and understand the
operator’s manual for the attachment.
6. Start the machine. Lift the boom until the hooks have fully engaged.
7. Lock the quick-tach lock assemblies. Be sure that the assembly is fully engaged!
8. Put the boom stands in the “travel position”.
9. Continue with your spray job.
Pull Into the Attachment
Slowly pull into the boom.
A helpful tip to pulling into the boom-use the speed control. Set
the speed control to the slowest speed rather than trying to
control it with the hydrostatic lever. (see the Hydrostatic
system section for information on the speed control)
Is There Enough Clearance?
Check to see that the quick-tach hooks are high enough to
clear the lock pins. Due to soil settling or the difference in the
airbag pressure without the boom on, you may need to let
some air out of the airbags using the relief valves. If the
machine is not equipped with the valves, call Hagie Customer
Service and purchase airbag relief valve kits and install them
on the front leg assemblies. Once the necessary adjustments
have been made, continue to drive into the boom until the
hooks are above the lock pins.
128
XIII. Quick-Tach System
Reconnect All Hydraulic, Electrical, Solution, and Foam
Marker (if equipped) lines
Reconnect all the necessary lines between the machine and
the boom. If connecting to another attachment other than the
boom, make sure that you read and understand the operator’s
and parts manuals for the attachment.
When connecting the booms, NTB or combo
attachments, refer to fig (A) for proper connections.
The pressure lines for the different attachments (booms, NTB
and combo) use the same fitting. When reconnecting the
attachments make sure to connect to the correct port.
Combo use A1
A2
NTB and booms use A2
Lift the Boom
Lifting the boom will allow the weight of the
boom to pull the hooks over the lock pins.
Once the hooks are fully over the lock pins,
be sure to engage the lock assemblies. Do
not operate the boom without the full
engagement of the lock assemblies!
You will notice the change of weight again
as the machine begins to support the boom.
129
XIII. Quick-Tach System
Boom Stands
This would also be a good time to put the boom stands (if
equipped) in “travel” position by removing the pin and sliding
the leg all the way up. Re-insert the pin above the bracket to
keep the leg in place.
Do not try to move the machine a great distance without doing
this step! There is risk of catching the stands on the ground
causing unnecessary damage to the stands and to the boom.
This may also damage the machine.
Continue With the Spray Job
DO NOT FORGET to adjust the booms before moving the
machine. Continue with your spray job.

XV. All Wheel Steer
ALL WHEEL STEER
Introduction
It is very important that you study this section if AWS (All Wheel Steer) is installed on the
machine.
The AWS system is set up to keep the machine safe, however, each driver’s experience behind
the wheel of a Hagie Machine may be different. Hagie Manufacturing Company strongly
suggests driving a machine in Conventional Steer initially to get a feel of the machine. Get a feel
for how different the machine turns at different speeds and at different steering angles in both
forward and reverse. It would probably be in your best interest to make sure you are very
comfortable in driving the machine on the road and in the field, with the booms in the transport
position and in the spray position, and by doing a lot of different turning scenarios before
attempting to drive the machine with the AWS.
After all of the test driving is done and you feel comfortable with the machine, you can begin to
understand how to put the machine into an AWS state. Hagie Manufacturing uses the term
“Coordinated Steering” to describe the AWS feature. Coordinated Steering refers to the situation
created when the front wheels turn one direction and the rear wheels turn in the opposite
direction to create tighter turn angle and allow the rear wheels to follow the front wheel tracks.
Coordinated Steering should make turning more efficient and less damaging to your crops.
Operators with machines equipped with All Wheel Steer pay special attention!
133
XV. All Wheel Steer
134
XV. All Wheel Steer
Terminology
Conventional Steering-only the front wheels turn
Coordinated Steering-all wheels turn and do so in a
relationship to where the rear tire should follow in the
front tires’ tracks
Drive State (Road vs. Field)-this is controlled by
through the MD3 (F1 button) (the machine must be in
neutral for these drive state to be changed)
Steering State (Coordinated Steering vs. Conventional
Steering)-this is controlled by several things, but first
the AWS must be engaged through the MD3 (F3 button)
Operators with machines equipped with All Wheel Steer pay special attention!
135
XV. All Wheel Steer
Components
The rear legs of an AWS machine are equipped with steering
cylinders (A). The cylinders have internal position sensors and
external proximity sensors (B) to track the rod extension of the
cylinder.
The rear hydraulic steering is controlled by a valve block (C)
located on the belly of the machine.
Operators with machines equipped with All Wheel Steer pay special attention!
136
XV. All Wheel Steer
Operating All Wheel Steer
To engage the AWS, make sure that the machine’s drive state
is “field”. The machine must also be in the first or second gear
(speed range) for AWS to engage. Press the F3 button until
“ON” appears beside AWS. The machine will stay in AWS
mode, which basically allows the system to be maintained ON
until either a limitation in the system is reached or the operator
pushes the button to turn it off. Operator can determine whether
or not to use the Progressive AWS or not, which basically
means that a switch can be activated to only allow AWS in 1st
gear or allow AWS in both 1st and 2nd gear. If the AWS is not
wanted in 2nd gear then the operator can get to the switch in
the MD3 display by pressing the Menu button and then the F1
(Adjust) button. The operator can then see the adjust groups.
Scroll to operator adjustments and press the OK button on the
MD3. Next scroll to the P-AWS switch in the operator
adjustments screen and press OK. Now the value of the switch
can be changed from a value of 1 which will allow AWS in both
1st and 2nd gear or a value of 0 which will only allow AWS in
1st gear.
Disabling AWS
In the event of a fault in the AWS system the machine will be
limited in its functions. Disabling AWS will allow the machine to
operate normally again.
First press the Menu button on the MD3 and then the F1
(Adjust) button, next scroll down to “AWS option” and press OK.
Now change the value from 1 to 0 to disable AWS. This will set
the machine to conventional steering and will allow the machine
to operate normally until the issue with AWS can be corrected.
After the issue has been resolved the value in “AWS option”
can be set from 0 back to 1 and AWS will be enabled.
Operators with machines equipped with All Wheel Steer pay special attention!
137
XV. All Wheel Steer
Limitations include:




Machine is shifted out of first or second speed ranges
while in field drive state. Also, the machine limitation is
met while in second gear. There is no warning
message associated with this; the machine will just
automatically switch to conventional steering (normal).
Machine must be in field drive state. If the machine is in
road drive state, then the AWS is off. There is no
warning associated with this, the machine will just be in
conventional steering mode.
System fault– system not working properly (sensor
malfunction, hydraulic issue, etc.). A message will
appear on the MD3 and the machine may be limited on
speed and other functions.
*** If a machine has Auto Steer*** When an Auto Steer
system is engaged it will turn the AWS system off and
move the rear wheels back to straight.
Operators with machines equipped with All Wheel Steer pay special attention!
138
XV. All Wheel Steer
Recommendations for best operating practices:
1. Try to use the shift buttons to slow down at the end
rows. Know that the first speed range in “field
state” will get you down to a slow enough speed to
turn and you can always use the hydrostatic lever
to slow down more if needed. By doing this, you
will see how the AWS speeds will not really slow
down much more than you would want for turning.
If you move the hydrostatic lever first and then shift
down to get to the AWS, you will notice that the
machine may slow down more than you wanted to.
2. Make sure that you understand how the machine feels when the machine is still in a turn
and is shifted out of the first or second gear. You will notice that to stay away from these
scenarios, you can wait to shift up out of first or second gear until the front wheels are
closer to the straight position. The machine will still operate just fine at whatever turn
angle that you want to shift out at, but you may feel that this situation is causing
operation that you may not want (possibly getting the machine off the line intended
because the rear wheels move back to straight position and the total turning radius will
change) See figure below to better understand this.
3. Contact Hagie Customer Service with any and all questions you may have regarding the
operation of the AWS system.

Hagie Manufacturing Company once again
recommends trying this system out before planning on
going straight to the first field with it so you can get a
feel for what to expect. Some situations to try include:




Driving the machine with both an empty and a
full solution tank with the AWS on.
Driving the machine on hills– make sure to
remember the precautions stated earlier in the
manual.
Driving the machine at different turn angles and
speeds to see how the limitations work. You will
notice that if you go over any of the limitations that you can slow back down and the
system will turn itself back on.
***If the machine has Auto Steer***- Notice how the machine feels when in AWS mode
and switching from Auto Steer ON to OFF especially when turning.

XVI. Hagie Reversible Fan
HAGIE REVERSIBLE FAN
Introduction
The Hagie Reversible fan is a pneumatically actuated variable pitch fan. The blades are held in
full pitch by spring pressure. As air pressure builds, the pitch of the blade changes to the
reverse direction. When the pressure is released, the fan blades return to their default cooling
position, via return springs that prevent overheating if a system failure occurs.
Another feature of the Hagie reversible fan is that it is pneumatically activated eliminating the
use of oil or hydraulic fluid that could cause messy leaks and clog the cooling system.
The safety information in this publication is to be used in conjunction with the safety information
supplied from the original machine manufacturer. Please refer to all safety information supplied,
prior to doing any work on the Fan Assembly or any other component(s) to assure total safety.
WARNING: This fan is not designed to be mounted onto a crank shaft or crank shaft
pulley. Torsional vibration from crank shafts will damage the fan and could result in machine
damage and serious injury.
Caution: Improper operation, maintenance or repair of this product can be dangerous and
could result in injury or death.
 Always use Hagie approved parts and components. Failure to do so will result in voiding
the 1-year parts warranty for the fan.
 Do not operate or perform any maintenance on this product, until you have read and
understood the operation and maintenance information. Please contact Hagie
Manufacturing Company for any information that you may require.
 The person(s) servicing the product may be unfamiliar with many of the systems or
components on the product. This makes it important to use caution when performing any
type of service work. Knowledge of the product and/or its components is important
before the removal or disassembly of any component.

Service and Maintenance
Under normal operating conditions, Hagie Reversible fans do not require scheduled
maintenance, other than lubrication, and are built to provide thousands of hours of trouble free
service. In moderate to extreme operating conditions a visual inspection of the moving parts is
recommended from time to time to safeguard against fan blade damage which could lead to
equipment and/or other damage.
WARNING: Turn the battery disconnect to “OFF” before doing any maintenance on the
reversible fan. Failure to do so could result in accidental engine turnover and serious injury or
death.
Before Starting the Engine Check the Following:
1. Check the air inlet tube on the front of the fan to ensure that it has proper amount of
clearance to allow for a non-restricted rotation of the fan blades during the pitch change of
the fan from Cooling Mode into Cleaning Mode. This can be done with the fan belt still loose.
Use the shop air to turn the fan blades into the cleaning mode position. Slowly release the
air from the fan hub until the fan blades are exactly half way back to the cooling mode. With
the fan blades in this mid position, rotate the fan blades and makes sure that there is at least
5/8” (15-mm) clearance between the air tube inlet and the base of the fan blades (maximum
width of blades). If the clearance is less than 5/8” (15-mm) remove the fan from the
mounting flange and bend the air tube assembly to provide the clearance required. Also
make sure that all hoses and wires are secured firmly and routed away from the fans
operating area.
2. Make sure the rubber air tube supply line is secured where it enters into the fan shroud. It
should not be possible for additional lengths of air tube to enter into the fan shroud where it
can be sucked into the rotating fan. If necessary, clamp or tie strap the air supply tube to the
shroud.
3. Make sure that the rubber airline is pressed securely onto the steel air tube inlet by giving it
a strong pull. The tube and clamp when installed correctly will not come back off of the air
tube without first cutting the clamp to loosen the tension.
142
XVI. Hagie Reversible Fan
4. Make sure all tools have been removed from engine compartment including the topside of
the radiator and inside of the shroud before the fan guards are installed. Obstacles in the
path of rotation can interfere with the movement of the fan and can result is damage to the
fan blades, fan hub and/or the radiator core.
5. Check the water pump bearing or fan mounting bearing. Check to ensure that this bearing is
in good condition. If the bearing does not turn freely or if there is transverse movement of
the bearing, it should be replaced before the Hagie Fan is installed to prevent any imbalance
of the fan during operation.
6. Check the radiator mounting bolts shroud mounting bolts to ensure that the radiator and
shroud are firmly secured and unable to move during the operation of the machine. Loose
shroud bolts can allow the fan shroud to move into the path of the rotating blades and loose
radiator mounting bolts can allow the radiator to flex in position allowing the shroud to come
into contact with the rotating fan blades.
7. Make sure all fan guards have been installed and firmly secured into place. The Hagie
Reversible fan creates a lot of airflow in both the cooling and cleaning mode operation. The
result of this airflow is a strong vacuum effect that can suck items/obstacles that are located
inside or around the engine compartment or fan.
8. To ensure maximum efficacy of your new Hagie reversible fan. Make sure to start with a
clean cooling system, free of debris paying particular attention to the stacked cooler core(s).
9. Activate reversible fan by holding momentary switch on the MD3 labeled REVERSING FAN
(F1). The reversing fan can be activated at any time while the machine is running.
143
XVII. Application Data
APPLICATION DATA
Introduction
It is important to apply chemicals as recommended by the manufacturers of the product. In
order to do so, the spraying system must be properly calibrated.
Determine the speed at which the sprayer will be driven while applying chemicals. To select the
best speed, consider the lay of the land, the condition of the soil, the type of crops, the height of
the crop, etc.
Remember that the performance of the nozzle and the spray system are dependent on the
performance of the operator. If the spray system is operated within set parameters of the nozzle
type and the machine/console set up, you will see greater success with your application.
Operating the machine one or two miles per hour faster or slower than intended will greatly
change the outcome of the programmed spray job.
Select the nozzle spacing (distance between each nozzle on the spray boom) best suited for the
intended spraying job. For help in determining the nozzle spacing and height of the boom, refer
to the Spray Product Catalog that accompanies this manual.
There are several types and sizes of nozzles. Select (as recommended by the catalog) and
install the type and size of nozzle best suited for the intended spraying job., The type of nozzle
will be based on the product being sprayed and the type of crop it is being used on. The size of
the nozzles selected will be based upon the speed the sprayer will travel, the nozzle spacing,
and the number of gallons per acre that will be applied.
Tip Selection:
There are several things to consider when selecting the type of nozzle needed for the intended
spray job. Whatever your personal preference is; be sure that the nozzle complies with the
chemical manufacturer’s standards for spray control, and also any environmental standards that
might be in place for your region. (Some regions may have restrictions on “drift” control).
Once you have chosen a type of nozzle, you must choose the size of the nozzle. There are 3
main things to consider when choosing the size:
1. Recommendation of gallons per acre.
2. The speed in which you intend to travel across the field while spraying. And the nozzle
spacing (distance between tips).
3. Refer to the following page for information on how to select a tip size.
Since all tabulations in the catalog are based on spraying water, you will need to use a
conversion factor when spraying liquids other than water. This information is found in the Spray
Product catalog.
144
XVII. Application Data
Below is an example of how to choose the proper nozzle:
Joe is spraying 28% nitrogen. The chemical manufacturer recommends that the chemical be
sprayed at 20 GPM. Joe knows that he can run his sprayer at 10 MPH across his field. He has a
20 inch nozzle spacing on his booms. Joe has narrowed his tip search to the flat spray tips.
Use the following conversion formula:
20 GPA (liquid other than water) x 1.13 (conversion factor) =22.6 GPA (water)
Joe determined that he needs an application rate of 22.6 GPA to determine the correct nozzle to
apply 28% nitrogen at 20 gallons per acre.
To figure out which nozzle is better for his use, Joe has to figure out the GPM he needs to
spray.
The nozzle that best matches the specifications set by Joe is the TP8008, spraying 22 GPA at a
rate of 0.75 GPM. If Joe maintains a constant speed, he should have a successful application.

XVII. Application Data
Verifying Calibration
To test your system, fill the solution tank with clean water. Do not add chemicals until the
calibration is complete!
1) Apply the brake.
2) Start the engine of the sprayer.
3) Throttle the engine to operating speed.
4) Turn on the spray console.
5) Change the drive state of the sprayer to field state on the MD3.
6) Turn on the solution tank valve located on the right hand side console.
7) Turn on the main solution switch on the hydrostatic lever.
8) Turn on all boom section solution switches on the side console.
9) Make sure there are no leaks and that all nozzles are spraying a desirable pattern.
10) Continue spraying in the stationary position for at least 10 minutes for proper warm up of
the sprayer and its system.
Once the sprayer has had an adequate warm period, you will need to perform a “self-test” to
simulate speed although the machine will remain stationary (see the next page on quick
instruction for performing a “self-test”). Collect one nozzle’s spray for one minute in an
adequately sized and marker container.
Verify that the collection equals or is close to the gallons per minute for the nozzle, pressure,
speed, gallons per acre, and spacing that you are using. Also to verify the accuracy, you will
need to verify the flow meter. To do so, collect one nozzle’s spray for one minute and multiply it
by the number of nozzles on the booms. This should equal the amount measured through the
flow meter.
WARNING: Do not add chemicals until calibration is complete! Contact with chemicals can
cause serious injury or death.

Calculating Spray Section Width
The spray section widths will need to be entered into the spray console during initial setup. No
matter what the length of the boom is or how many spray sections it has the formula for
calculating section widths is the same.
Example:
Spray section #1 of a 120’ boom with 15” nozzle spacing, section #1 has 10 spray nozzles.
Some spray controllers have the spray sections listed in feet instead of inches. To convert from
inches to feet divide the width in inches by 12.

Match how many Lifts are on the Machine.
(Must be in parameter mode before this step)
Press the LIFT 1 UP button under the PAR on the LCD
display two times and the display will show you how
many lifts are turned on.
The L6 (A) on the display indicates that all six lifts are
on.
To change the number of lifts to match your
machine, press the LIFT 3 UP button under the L
(A). This will display the LIFTS: ON _ OFF screen

setting of the Dwell (A) for all up and the Valve
Compensation (B) as either 1= on, or 0= off.
The D value indicates how many seconds that the lifts
will travel up after the ALL-UP button on the hydrostatic
lever is pressed momentarily. The time can be changed
by pressing the LIFT 4 UP button. It is normally set to zero before delivering the machine to the
customer, but can be set to a value of 20 while adjusting the machine valves. Pressing the
LIFT 4 UP button will add 5 seconds to the value each time until D25 and then will return to
D00.When the value is set at D00, the up motion stops as soon as the hydrostatic lever ALL-UP
button is released. If the value is set to anything greater than D00, the ALL-UP will only need to
be pressed momentarily and the lifts will continue the up move until the parameter has been
reached.
The V value indicates whether or not the valve automatic compensation is performed. Press the
LIFT 6 UP button to change this value. This is normally left at V1.
152
XVIII. Tasseltrol ® /LS System 12 ™
Set the Lift Up Speeds.
(Must be in parameter mode before this step)
Press the LIFT 1 UP button under the PAR on the LCD
display screen three times and the display will show
the current setting of the up speed for an auto move, a
manual move, and an all-up move with a value from 01
to 10.
With the value set to 01 in the MAN or to 03 in the
AUTO and ALL, the lifts will move slow enough to see
if any are moving slower than the rest. These settings are useful for adjusting the offset of the
valves to get all the lifts to move at the same speed. Typically these values are set to 05 for a
fairly fast speed. The values can be changed by pressing the up and down buttons under the
AUTO, MAN, or ALL.
The values can be saved by pressing the LIFT 1 DOWN button to exit this screen and save the
new parameter setting.

current setting of the UP OFFSET for the first
three lifts. Pressing NEXT again will show the
offset setting for the last three lifts. The UP
OFFSET for each valve can be set from –19 to
+20 as needed to get that lift speed to match
the speed of the other lifts; the more positive the
number, the faster the lift will move. Typically
the offset is initially adjusted at a very slow
speed by setting the LIFT UP SPEED to either
01 or 03.
Exit the parameter mode and check the speed of
each lift by moving it manually with the up/down
buttons. Now correct the fastest and slowest lifts
to match the average speed by changing the
offset value with the up/down buttons for that lift
while in the LIFT UP OFFSET parameter. When
finished setting the offset values, return the
speed setting back to approximately 05.
153
XVIII. Tasseltrol ® /LS System 12 ™

current setting of the down speed for an auto move, a
manual move, and an all-resume move with a value of
01-10.
With the value set to 03 the lifts will move a little
slower. This setting of 03 is useful for adjusting the
offset of the values for getting all the lifts the same
speed. Typically these values are set to 05 for a fairly fast speed. The values can be changed
by pressing the up and down buttons under the AUTO, MAN, or ALL.
The values can be saved by pressing the LIFT 1 DOWN button to exit this screen and save the
new parameter setting.
Set the Lift Down Offset.
(Must be in parameter mode before this step)

current setting of the down offset for the first
three lifts (A). Pressing the NEXT again will show
the offset setting for the last three lifts (B).
The down offset for each valve can be adjusted
for a value from –19 to +20. The more positive
the value, the faster the lift will move. Typically
the offset is initially adjusted at a slower speed
by setting the lift down speed to 03.
Exit the parameter mode and check the speed of each lift by moving it manually with the
up/down buttons. Now correct the fastest and slowest lifts to match the average speed by
changing the offset value with the up/down buttons for that lift while in the DOWN OFFSET
parameter. When finished setting the offset values, return the speed setting back to
approximately 05.
154
XVIII. Tasseltrol ® /LS System 12 ™

Once you have set the operating parameters you can
adjust the response parameters. These parameters
are used to adjust the response of the controller and
seldom need changing. The parameter values are
stored in flash memory and will be retained even
when no battery power is present. Your
programmable control box is factory preset with the
following parameter defaults:
BOTTOM PARAMETER– B1
RESPONSE PARAMETER– R2
TOP PARAMETER– T3
These parameters will always be displayed until the
control box is reprogrammed. Once reprogrammed, the new values for the parameters will
appear in the window of the control box.
To program the unit, first select the response parameter. If further adjustment is required for top
and/or bottom parameters, continue with their adjustments.
155
XVIII. Tasseltrol ® /LS System 12 ™
Tasseltrol® Response Parameter
The response parameter is used to adjust the response time of both photocells. How quickly the
down motion starts when no corn is detected by either top or bottom cells, and how quickly the
up motion is stopped when corn is no longer detected by the top cell, can be changed by
selecting R1, R2, R3, or R4. More corrections will occur with R1 selected and fewer with R4
selected. The normal or default value for this parameter is R2, but can be set to any desired
value.
Use the response parameter to adjust overall correction activity and to compensate for ground
speed. If the pullers are moving too quickly and frequently, the response parameter can be
increased toward R4. If the pullers are too slow to respond to changes in the corn depth,
decrease the parameters toward R1. Generally this parameter can be left at R2.
To display the response parameter, select AUTO and turn the control box power on. Wait three
seconds for the SELECT MANUAL message; press the UP button under PAR. Now press the
UP button under the R value.
1. The active value of the parameter is indicated by it blinking on and off while the other
three options are displayed continuously.
2. To select a new value for the parameter, press the UP button under the desired choice.
3. After selecting one of the four options, press the LIFT 1 DOWN button to escape this
parameter.
4. To save new values and escape the parameter mode, press the LIFT 1 DOWN button a
second time.
156
XVIII. Tasseltrol ® /LS System 12 ™
Tasseltrol® Top Parameter
The top parameter is used to adjust the sensitivity time of the top photocell. The top photocell
starts the up motion when its lights path is blocked by corn. How much corn it has to see before
starting the up move can be changed by selecting one of the four values T1, T2, T3, or T4.
With T1 selected, less corn is required to start an up move. The normal or default value for this
parameter is T3, but can be set to any desired value.
If the pullers move up too easily when a taller stalk of corn passes, increase the parameter
toward T4. If the pullers stay deep too long when taller corn passes, decrease the parameter
toward T1. Generally this parameter can be left at T3.
To display the top parameter, select AUTO and turn the control box power on. Wait three
seconds for the SELECT MANUAL message; press the UP button under PAR. Now press the
UP button under the T value.
1. The active value of the parameter is indicated by it blinking on and off while the other
three options are displayed continuously.
2. To select a new value for the parameter, press the UP button under the desired choice.
3. After selecting one of the four options, press the LIFT 1 DOWN button to escape this
parameter.
4. To save new values and escape the parameter mode, press the LIFT 1 DOWN button a
second time.
157
XVIII. Tasseltrol ® /LS System 12 ™
Tasseltrol® Bottom Parameter
The bottom parameter is used to adjust the sensitivity time of the bottom photocell. The bottom
photocell stops the down motion when its light path is blocked by corn. Selecting one of the four
values B1, B2, B3, or B4 will set how much corn the photocell has to see before it stops moving
down. With B1 selected, the down move will stop as soon as corn is detected. The normal or
default value for this parameter is B1, but can be set to any desired value.
If the pullers run too shallow after moving down into shorter corn, increase the parameter toward
B4. If the pullers move too deep when going into shorter corn or oscillates between the top and
bottom photocells, decrease the parameter toward B1. Generally this parameter can be left at
B1.
To display the bottom parameter, select AUTO and turn the control box power on. Wait three
seconds for the SELECT MANUAL message; press the UP button under PAR. Now press the
UP button under the B value.
1. The active value of the parameter is indicated by it blinking on and off while the other
three options are displayed continuously.
2. To select a new value for the parameter, press the UP button under the desired choice.
3. After selecting one of the four options, press the LIFT 1 DOWN button to escape this
parameter.
4. To save new values and escape the parameter mode, press the LIFT 1 DOWN button a
second time.
158
XVIII. Tasseltrol ® /LS System 12 ™
To use the control box with its normal parameter
setting, use the following procedures:
1. From the operator’s seat, turn the ignition to the
ON position.
2. Turn the control box power switch to the ON
position.
3. Turn the AUTO/MANUAL switch to MANUAL.
At this time, the display will read “MANUAL” in
addition to other information identifying the
control box.
4. Press the individual row switches for up and down
movement. An arrow in the display will indicate
direction of each lift assembly. P indicates pressure,
UP only in “o” type machines, and UP and DOWN both
in “p”, “c”, and “x” type machines.
5. If the AUTO/MANUAL switch is left in the AUTO
position when the unit is first started, the display will tell
you to SELECT MANUAL. After you have selected
MANUAL, switch back to the AUTO position.
6. To override the system, press the desired UP switch to
raise the attachment. When the switch is released, the
system will go back into the AUTO mode.
7. If the ignition is left on and the AUTO/MANUAL switch
is left in the AUTO position, the down coils on the
electro-hydraulic valve will lose power after 45
seconds. To re-activate, move the AUTO/MANUAL
switch from AUTO to MANUAL and back to AUTO.
8. The control box is set up with a feature so that if a unit
loses contact during operation in the AUTO mode, the
unit will automatically rise. If this should happen, switch
to the MANUAL mode and determine the cause for the
malfunction.
159
XVIII. Tasseltrol ® /LS System 12 ™
Short Corn Operation
When operating the LS system, always select MANUAL when first entering the field. Once you
have maintained your operating speed and the cutting and/or pulling depth, select AUTO. When
you come to an area where the corn is very short, such as a low spot in the field, you may want
to switch to the MANUAL position until you reach taller corn.
Always switch to the MANUAL position before you reach the end rows (see figure). This will
allow the cutter or puller heads to maintain their cutting or pulling height when re-entering the
field. Then you may switch back to AUTO.
You may choose to use the ALL UP/HOLD function instead of switching to manual. This
function will raise all the detasseling heads in one motion.
160
XVIII. Tasseltrol ® /LS System 12 ™
“All UP” and “All Hold” Function
This function can be used to raise or lower all row
units at the same time. The switches to control this
option are located on the hydrostatic lever (A) and the
combo control panel (B). All the row units will move up
when the top of either switch is activated and will lower
when the bottom of either switch is activated.
The parameters for dwell on the up move can be set to
0, 5, 10, 15, 20, or 25 seconds. The heads will move
up this amount of time without having to hold the allup/hold switch in the up position (only in values
greater than 0). All heads will hold this position when
the parameter is reached. To resume automatic depth
control, activate the all-up/hold switch in the lower
position.
To program the ALL-UP/HOLD functions, see the
instructions for Dwell.
Additional Features
To temporarily lock a lift up, hold the up button for
that lift while switching from the manual to auto mode.
The display will show an “L” for that lift to indicate that
it is locked and will not move down automatically (A).
The lift will return back to normal operation when the
manual mode is again selected.
To display the supply voltage and current for the
controller, press the ALL-UP button while in the
manual mode (B).

XIX. Transporting
TRANSPORTING
Cradling the Booms
The booms should always be cradled before traveling,
transporting, or parking for an extended period of time.
The booms must be folded when cradled.
To cradle the booms, fold the boom extensions in, raise the
transom, and fold the booms in toward the machine. When the
boom reaches the last 8-10 degrees of travel, it will
automatically slow down to avoid impact with the cradle.
Raise each individual boom level until it clears the outer cradle
stop. Fold the boom in toward the cradle back-stop. When it
touches the back-stop, lower the boom level until the full
weight of the boom rests in the cradle (A).
Warning: When transporting the sprayer observe the following safety items to avoid
serious injury or death.

Check for overhead clearance before driving under any
overhead obstructions.

Contact with power lines can result in serious injury or death.
Caution: When transporting the sprayer observe the following
safety item to avoid injury or equipment damage.

Do not transport machine without booms folded and in cradle.
165
XIX. Transporting
Folding the Outriggers
Before folding the outriggers, the detasseling heads must be
staggered in height. Damage will occur if the detasseling
heads are all at the same height and the outriggers are folded!
To properly stagger the heads follow these steps:
1. Lower the cutting of pulling depth all the way down
using the depth command switches
2. Lower the center two heads all the way down
3. Raise all the heads on one side to approximately half
the fully raised height.
4. Raise the heads on the opposite side to fully raised
height
Slowly begin to fold the outriggers in, making adjustments as
necessary to the height of the heads. Once the outriggers are
folded completely, do not try to make adjustments to the
heads as there is risk that you may entangle the stalk guides
or depth command sensor bars causing damage.
166
XIX. Transporting

SERVICE: FLUIDS
Engine Oil
Oil level-The engine oil level dipstick is located on the lefthand side of the engine. Never operate the engine with the oil
level below the “L” (low) mark or above the “H” (high) mark.
Wait at least five minutes after shutting the engine off to check
the oil level, this allows the oil to drain to the oil pan. Check
the engine oil level daily.
Capacity-Low to high mark capacity is 2.0 quarts. The engine
oil pan capacity is 17 quarts. Change the engine oil every 250
hours or yearly. Refill with 15W40 diesel engine oil.
Hydraulic Oil Reservoir
Oil level- Check the sight gauge level on the hydraulic oil
reservoir daily. Add just enough fluid so the level is at the top
of the lower sight gauge. Always check the hydraulic oil level
when it is cool. The top sight gauge is for when the hydraulic
oil is hot, hydraulic oil will expand when heated.
Type-Premium hydraulic fluids containing high quality
rust/oxidation/ and foam inhibitors are required. Hydraulic oil
must conform to one of the following types: anti-wear hydraulic
oil, type F automatic transmission fluid, or agricultural hydraulic
transmission fluid. Replace the oil in the hydraulic reservoir at
500 hours or at the beginning of each spraying season,
whichever comes first.
175
XXII. Service: Fluids
Wheel Hub Oil
Fairfield Option: Oil Level-Each wheel hub should
maintain an oil level of half full at all times. If the hub has
less than half full, it would limit lubrication and over half
full could cause overheating and damage. To check oil
level, position the wheel hub so one of the face plugs is
positioned at 12 O’clock. The other plug will be either at 9
O’clock or 3 O’clock. Remove the lower of the two plugs. If
no oil comes out, the oil level is too low. Check the wheel
hub oil level daily. If 85-140 oil is needed, remove the top
plug also and fill just until it starts to come out the lower
hole. With the oil at a satisfactory level, re-install plugs.
Change-The wheel hub oil should be changed after
the first 50 hours of operation, preferably in a loaded
condition. Subsequently, it should be changed every
100 hours after that, or once a year whichever comes
first.
To change the wheel hub oil, position one of the plugs
at 6 O’clock and the other at either 3 O’clock or 9
O’clock. Remove the plugs to drain the oil. Once all of
the oil is drained, re-install the bottom plug and
remove 3 O’clock or 9 O’clock plug. Fill oil until a
satisfactory level is met. Re-install the plug.
General Maintenance-If your sprayer is going to sit for
an extended period of time, occasionally rotate the
hubs by driving the sprayer forward and backward a
few feet to adequately coal all internal hub parts. This
will prevent rusting if moisture inadvertently entered
the hub during an oil change. Failure to rotate the hub
and disperse oil may cause rusting and internal
damage.
176
XXII. Service: Fluids
Cooling System
Coolant type-Your cooling system should always be sufficiently
charged with an adequate mixture of antifreeze and water,
regardless of the climate, in order to maintain a broad
operating temperature range. Your cooling system has been
factory charged with an ethylene-glycol based antifreeze.
Checking Concentration-The radiator cap is located toward the
rear of the engine compartment (A). Never remove the cap
from a hot engine. Always allow the engine to cool before servicing the
cooling system. Check coolant level daily.
A 50/50 antifreeze water mixture is a conservative mixture which allows
good protection against both overheating and freezing. If a stronger
antifreeze mixture is required, be sure not to exceed the engine
manufacturer’s guidelines for antifreeze mixing. The table (B) gives a
few examples of ethylene-glycol antifreeze/water mixture protection
values. Consult the engine manufacturer’s handbook for further
information.
Concentration should be checked every 500 hours or at
the beginning of a spray season whichever comes first. A
refract meter should be used to check concentration;
“floating ball” type density testers are not accurate enough
for use with heavy duty diesel cooling system.
Changing coolant-Your coolant should be changed
periodically to eliminate the buildup of harmful chemicals.
Drain and replace the coolant every other spraying season or 1,000 hours of service, whichever
comes first. Refill only with soft water because hard water contains minerals which break down
the anti-corrosion properties of antifreeze.
Fuel
Type- Ultra low sulfur diesel fuel is to be used with the Tier
4I engines.
In Tier 3 engines use No. 2 diesel fuel for the best economy
and performance under most operating conditions. In
operating conditions fewer than 32°F, use a blend of No.1
and No. 2 diesel fuel. The addition of No.1 diesel fuel may
cause loss of power and/or fuel economy.
Storing-See the section on storing the machine.
177
XXII. Service: Fluids
Refueling-Always turn off the engine and allow it to cool before refueling. Never smoke while
fueling. Keep a fire extinguisher within reach while refueling.
The fuel cell on a STS holds 135.5 gallons-do not fill it completely; fuel can expand and run
over. Wipe up all spilled fuel and clean with detergent and water before starting the engine.
Windshield Washer Fluid
Reservoir-The windshield washer reservoir is located on the
rear of the cab. Check it occasionally and refill it with nonfreezing automotive windshield cleaner as required.
Air Conditioning
Type-The cab on the sprayer is equipped with a R-134a air
conditioning system.
Recharging-Recharge it only with R-134a refrigerant. If your air
conditioning system is mistakenly charged with R-12
refrigerant, serious problems, such as compressor seizure,
may result. Therefore, confirm refrigerant before recharging the
system.
If you do not have the proper equipment, it is recommended
that you allow and independent service agent service your air
conditioning system.

Cleaning-It is not recommended to clean the air intake filter element. However, a clean damp
cloth should be used to wipe away dust and foreign material from the air cleaner housing.
Filter Minder®
Location-The Filter Minder® is an air restriction monitoring
system that progressively and constantly indicates how much
air filter capacity remains. It is mounted on the engine
assembly near the air intake and filter. Check its reading
daily.
Service-Service the air cleaner when the Filter Minder® reads
20” (80% of dirt holding capacity). Service the air cleaner
before the yellow indicator reaches the red line of the Filter
Minder®. Be sure to reset the system after servicing.

XXIII. Service: Filters
Radiator Screen
In order to maintain air flow through the engine cooling
system’s radiator, oil cooler, and air conditioning condenser,
the cooling air intake grille must be inspected often and
periodically cleaned.
When the engine hood has been opened for servicing, use
compressed air to dislodge most large trash and dirt. Blow out
the screen AWAY from the machine. Water from a
pressurized hose may also be used, or if necessary the screen
may be soaked with soapy water and scrubbed gently with a
brush.
When cleaning the cooling fins of the radiator, oil cleaner, or
A/C condenser with compressed air or water, be careful not to
damage the cooling fins which may impair cooling capabilities.

XXVI. Service: Belts
SERVICE: BOLT TORQUE
Wheel Bolts
If you do not have the proper equipment to mount a tire, let
your local qualified tire sales/service dealer mount the tire for
you. The tire should be mounted on the rim according to figure
A for best traction and tread cleaning action. To install wheel
and tire assembly on the wheel hub, lubricate the studs with
an anti-seize grease. Align the wheel bolt holes with the wheel
hub studs and mount the wheel on the hub.
Start all of the lug nuts and tighten them until they are just
snug. Following the torque sequence shown in figure B, first
turn each lug nut to a torque value of 120 dry foot pounds. Use
slow, even pressure on the torque wrench. Quick or jerky
movements cause inaccurate values. Repeat the same
sequences to 150 dry foot pounds and again finally to 400 to
500 dry foot pounds.
If the wheel turns during lug nut torqueing, lower the machine
to the ground just enough for the tire to touch and prevent
rotation, or more preferably, place a suitable wedge between
the tire and the ground. Lower the machine and resume
operation. Recheck torque after 30 minute of operation.
Caution: Check lug nut torque immediately after
receiving the machine and every 50 hours thereafter.
192
XXVII. Service: Bolt Torque
Hydraulic Tread Adjust Units
With the engine turned off, visually inspect the tread bearing
bolts on both the bottom and side tread adjust bearing plates
every 50 hours. Check the torque every 100 hours.
To check the torque of the tread adjust bearing bolts:
1. Loosen the jam nut (A) on each tread adjust bearing
bolt.
2. Using an “X” pattern (B), verify that current torque on
each tread adjust bearing bolt is equivalent to the last
check from 100 hours previous.
3. Repeat pattern 3 to 4 times until last sequence shows
no movement of the bolts to achieve desired torque.
4. Tighten jam nut.
Typically a torque value of 20 to 25 foot pounds is required to
stabilize the axle and still allow tread width adjustment.
Never operate the unit with loose or missing tread adjusts
bolts.
Even pressure of the tread adjust bearing plates is
required for proper operation! Figure D shows the correct
position of the tread adjust bearing plates and bolts as well as
the outer leg. Figure E shows the plates when there is not even
torque on each of the tread adjust bearing bolts. Figure F
shows a situation in which there is not enough torque on the
tread adjust bearing bolts. Both figure E and F will cause the
tread adjust to operate incorrectly or not at all.

XXVIII. Service: Toe-In
SERVICE: TOE-IN
Gauging Toe-In*
To correctly gauge toe-in, phase the cylinders first. Then use a tape measure to measure the
wheel from the ground to the center of the wheel hub. Mark the distance on both the front and
rear rim lip of all four tires (A). The measurement should be the same on all four tires.
Using the lines drawn on the tires, measure from the front rim lip of the left front tire to the rear
rim lip of the right front tire (B, 1-d). Then measure from the front rim lip of the right front tire to
the rear rim lip of the left front tire (B, 1-c). These measurements should be the same and will
verify that the wheels are straight ahead. If the measurements are not the same, make small
corrections to the steering until they are.
To gauge toe-in, again using the marks on the rims, measure from the right rear mark on the
front tire to the left rear rim lip on the front tire (B, 1-b). Measure from the right front rim lip to the
left front rim lip on the front tire (B, 1-a). Subtract the value of 1-a from the value of 1-b. The
result should be between ½ and ¾ inches (front wheels only).
Repeat the process on the rear wheels. The measurements should be the same resulting in
zero toe-in.
Toe-in is preset at the factory and should not have to be adjusted unless the steering cylinders
are removed. Difficulty steering one way versus the other or “darting” during operation, may
indicate incorrect toe-in and may require adjustment.
*Toe-in procedures are intended for conventional steering machines only. Customers with AWS
will need to contact Hagie Customer Service for toe-in information.
Operators with machines equipped with All Wheel Steer pay special attention!
194
XXVIII. Service: Toe-In
Toe-in Adjustment *
To adjust toe-in of the front tires follow these
instructions for both front steering cylinders carefully:
1. Phase the cylinders, stopping at “center”.
2. Loosen jam nut (A).
3. Screw swivel assembly in or out on steering
cylinder until the measurement from the center
of the rod end to the collar (B) is the same on
both of the front steering cylinders.
4. Tighten jam nut.
5. Phase cylinders again, re-check toe-in
measurement. The cylinders must be phased
anytime an adjustment is made to the cylinders.
6. Drive forward 30 to 50 feet and recheck toe-in.
7. Repeat steps 2-6 until a correct toe-in
measurement is reached.
*Toe-in procedures are intended for conventional steer
machines only. If AWS is installed on the machine,
contact Hagie Customer Service for assistance.
Dimension C should be ½" to ¾" less
than dimension D For more information
