RULE
1
Hang the Surge
Unit LOW and LEVEL!
The Surge Pail is like a swinging
pendulum. It is always trying to hang
straight down and plumb. You pull it
over to attach the teat cups but it keeps
tugging, trying to get back to plumb...
so...it is always tugging and pulling.
When the pulsator slides over and
suction is applied to the teat and the
teat cups try to climb up and swallow
the teat just as they do on any milking
machine, but...the instant the pulsator
slides the other way and the suction
eases, the freely swinging unit pulls
them right back where they belong.
That is exactly why Surge Teat Cups
don’t creep up and shut off the flow of
milk. That is why Surge Teat Cups don’t
climb up and injure the udder - that is
why Surge Milking is Safe Milking.
It is just as easy and just as quick and
simple to hang the Surge Unit low and
level as it is to hang it any other way
but careless hanging cuts down on the
efficiency of the Surge.

RULE
2
Pull the Surcingle
Well Forward
Not all cows are built the same way they have various kinds of teats and
udders. On some teats the teat cups
have very little hold - on others they
anchor themselves to the teat with a
firm grip.
For those reasons you can pull the
surcingle all the way up to the shoulders
on some cows and on others you can’t
get it so far forward.
It will pay you well to learn your
cows and you can do it in a couple of
milkings. Put on as much forward pull
as you can and not have the teat cups
pulled off the teats. Before a teat cup
falls off it will usually begin to suck air
around the top of the teat and squawk
or squeal. When you hear that noise
you have gone a little too far and had
better ease up a little bit.
Placing the surcingle well forward
or tightening the spring increases the
TUG AND PULL of the Surge and
increases the speed and the safety of
your milking operation. Naturally, a
flushy heifer does not need as much
TUG & PULL as some old matron far
along in lactation.

RULE
3
Note!
When she’s milked out TAKE IT OFF!
While a properly hung Surge Milker
can probably stay on a dry teat longer
and do less harm than other machines,
it is still bad practice, even for a Surge.
Any milking machine should be
removed just as soon as the cow is
milked out.
Leaving the machine on too long does
not reduce the stripping and it does not
save any time. On the contrary it teaches
a cow to be a slow milker whether she
wants to become one or not.
You gain nothing and you lose
much by trying to operate too many
units - you gain no time and you lose
both time and milk when you try to do
other things while you are milking.
Your cows can be taught to milk out
faster - they can be taught to help you
get through the job of milking sooner
and to give more milk while they are
doing it.
The very first step toward faster
milking is to take the machine off each
cow as soon as she is milked out.
Thousands of hours were wasted this
morning, and thousands more will be
wasted against tonight by people who
did not take the Surge off each cow as
soon as she was milked out.
You don’t need to make that mistake.

“Rinse the milker immediately. The first and all important rule is: never let a milking
machine get dirty. Milk is clean as it comes from the cow. It does not dirty the milker
unless it is allowed to stay in the milker and dry on. Thus the first step in never letting
the milker get dirty is to rinse it immediately after the last cow is milked, not 15 or 20
minutes later or after breakfast, but IMMEDIATELY...Sterilization cannot be perfectly
effective unless the milking machine parts are first free from all milk and dirt. Old milk
and dirt protect the bacteria during sterilization. These bacteria cause the contamination
at the next milking.”
Cornell University
Your Long Vacuum Hose
Beyond any question more Surge Milkers
are slowed down by CLOGGED LONG
VACUUM HOSES (typically 8 ft. long)
than by all other reasons put together.
Just about everything has been blamed
for slowed up milking when a partially
clogged long vacuum hose was the real
villain.
You may be able to blow through it and
feel the air, you may be able to run water
through and yet it still may not have a
sufficiently large opening to permit a
free flow of air. The one way to MAKE
SURE is to scrub it out occasionally
with the long brush.
Through careless handling, bits of
straw, or bedding may be drawn into the
long hose. Bugs and insects can and do
crawl into the hose and build nests.
When your Surge Speed is reduced...
when you seem to be having trouble in
maintaining vacuum...CHECK THE
LONG VACUUM HOSE FIRST.
Note!
Clean hose daily and
replace approximately
every six months.

Instructions for Machine Milking Family Cows
Cows like consistency. Milk at the same time each day.
Follow the same routine each milking.
1. Wash your hands. Dirty hands spread disease.
2. Wear Nitrile Milking Gloves to reduce the spread of mastitis causing germs
from your hands. The small cracks and crevices in human hands harbor a lot of
bacteria including contagious Staph Aureus.
3. Sanitize your milking machine with a chlorinated sanitizing solution just before
you milk.
4. Entrance. Bring the Cow into a calm, stress free milking environment. Stress,
such as loud noise, inhibits milk let down.
5. Warm hands first and then fore strip. Hand milk 1 or 2 squirts from each teat
onto the black screen of a strip cup. Look for clots, clumps, blood, or signs of
abnormal milk. Fore stripping promotes milk letdown & faster milkout.
6. Teat Prep & Sanitation. The purpose of this step is to reduce the amount of
bacteria on teat skin and promote milk let down.
-Teat Wipes: Wipe and massage each teat for 15 seconds. Use one wipe per cow
or one per teat if they are visibly dirty. Teats will dry in a few seconds due to
the alcohol in the wipes.
-Pre Dipping: Predip with Teat Kote 10/111. Wait 30 seconds, then dry off
with a paper or cloth towel. Use one clean towel per cow. Do not reuse the towl
as this may spread diseases from one cow to the next.
7. The goal is to milk clean, dry teats. Wet udders are a good conduit for bad
bacteria and mastitis (udder infection). Wet udders may drip down to the top
of the liner, and if the liner slips it will suck in the dirty water. Limit water use
on the udder.
8. Apply the milker within one minute of the beginning of teat preparation. This
maximizes the animals natural milk letdown (oxytocin), speeds up milk flow,
and reduces the machine on time. Let the vacuum pull the milker onto the teat.
DO NOT force the teat into the liner. It only needs to go in about 1/2 inch.

Instructions for Machine Milking Family Cows continued
9. Adjust milking unit so it hangs square with out twisting the teats. A little
forward tension will provide faster milkout.
10.The cow is finished milking when the large volume of milk flow drops
off to a trickle. Milk out time should be 5 to 10 minutes on most cows.
Pinch off the rubber milk tubes on the bottom of the inflations, then
gently pull the inflation down off the teats.
11.Animals that were hard to milk by hand will take longer to milk with
a machine. Most healthy udders will shrink significantly when milked
out...Except for the first few days (post calving) when the udder has a lot
of swelling (edema). Usually the swelling leaves within a few days and
then the udder should shrink when milked out. Dynamint udder cream
will help reduce swelling if used in the first few days after calving.
12.Should you post strip? No! Research has shown that post stripping may
cause more harm than benefit. It may train the cow to hold back some
milk and your hands will contaminate the teat end at a vulnerable time
when the Keratin teat end seal is open. If the cow is not milking out
properly, then you may need to adjust the way the milker is hanging,
adjust the pulsator, or vacuum level, or have your milking machine
checked for proper operation.
13.Post dip IMMEDIATELY for Teat disinfection. Post dipping
sanitizes the teat skin including the opening at the bottom of
the teat. Post dipping has been proven to dramatically reduce
cases of udder infections. Post Dip with AstroTek. Teat Kote
10/111, or DermaSept protocol tested teat dips. Use the Hamby
Dairy Supply dip cup provided with your milking machine.
This non-return style dip cup provides a fresh dose of teat dip
for each teat. For temperatures below 25 degrees, DermaSept is
recommended because it will not freeze.
14.It is important to keep the dairy cow standing for a while after milking.
This will give some time for the wax-like seal of the teat orifice to seal back
up. A good solution is to have a rack of fresh hay and fresh water available
right after they exit the milking parlor.

Here’s how to wash your Surge Bucket
Note!
Instructions to wash claw milking units are very
different than the following instructions, which
are used in washing your surge bucket!
IMMEDIATELY upon removal of machine
from the last cow, snap it all apart and
throw the inflations and pail lid gasket into
clean, WARM water. This takes less time, is better
and more thorough than any attempt to suck water
through your surge bucket.
1
With the patented Surge Shell the inflation
never goes back in exactly the same way
and you prolong the life of the inflation by
removing it from the shell. This is the ONLY way
to make sure the inflation is properly cleaned.
3
2
Remove the pulsator
and put the pail lids
into the same water.
As soon as possible, scrub all the rubbers
with the proper brush, plenty of hot water,
and a reliable washing powder. NEVER
USE SOAP. Rinsing is all right as far as it goes,
but thorough brushing MAKES SURE. Scrub
each inflation to remove all milk fat...scrub the pail
lid and run the brush through each nipple...scrub
the pail, taking special care with the inside tip. If
you rinse immediately and scrub thoroughly, no
milkstone will ever form.

Conde Vapor Oil Vacuum Pumps - Start up & Maintenance
Use a high detergency 10w-40 motor oil for all Conde Vapor Oil Vacuum Pumps. Synthetic oil,
like Mobil 1, is recommended by Conde. This includes the 7300 portable, 7100 HD portable, or
Model 6 stationary pump sold by Hamby Dairy Supply.
When starting a new vapor oil pump, fill oil reservoir above the fittings in which the oil wicks
are inserted. This will give the pump extra oil for the first two hours of operation. When refilling,
fill to just below oil wick.
By looking in sight
glass, you’ll know
when you need oil, because it
will be low. It’s best if the oil
level inside the sight glass should
be 1/2 to 3/4 full.
Note!
Adding oil to the oil reservoir.

L-80 Pulsator Instructions
Rate Adjustment
The L-80 pulsator is adjustable. Using the Allen key supplied, turn the
speed governor gently CLOCKWISE to DECREASE speed,
ANTI-CLOCKWISE to INCREASE speed to obtain the rate you require. (See Fig.1)
Ensure that the main slide is clean before making any adjustment.
Note!
Maintenance
•
DO NOT LUBRICATE THE MOVING PARTS
•
Clean the filter at least once per month by means of compressed air. Replace the filter
every 6 months. Recommendations are approximate and must be adopted to the real
necessities. (Fig.2)
•
EVERY 2 MONTHS carefully clean the working parts and the pulsator body using
tepid water and a mild detergent. Use a soft not-metallic brush to loosen any stubborn
dirt. Rinse all parts in clean water and dry.
•
Follow the instructions in the diagrams (Fig. 3-4-5-6) for dismantling and assembly
procedures.
•
Under very damp and dusty conditions the above maintenance should be carried out
at least once a month.
•
WHENEVER MILK HAS BEEN SUCKED INTO THE PULSATOR
(eg from a split liner) the pulsator must be immediately washed good and dry.
•
It is recommended that the pulsator rate and the milking ratio be checked by means
of a pulsator tester at least once a year. This should be carried out by an authorized
service center or by a milking machine service technician.
•
Whenever a general overhaul of the pulsator is necessary, contact your local dealer.
Do not
overtighten!
