Never carry passengers, animals or objects on the machine, neither while working nor during transport.
Respect the Road Traffic Regulations when driving on public roads. Before driving, make sure that
surroundings are unencumbered (children, obstacles etc. …) and that your visibility is good enough.
Especially when the machine is quite long, it is important to take care that nobody is situated within the
machine’s manoeuvre area.
Avoid important turns, sudden changes in direction and drive with adapted speed.
When you change direction, you have to pay attention to the machine’s hangover.
Never use a narrow-track tractor on rough or sloped ground.
Do not walk on the covers or any other place on the machine, with the exception of the areas provided for
that purpose (ladder, platform). It is strictly forbidden to penetrate into areas behind protective grids or to
press on them.
Before any intervention on the machine, make certain that it cannot be started up accidentally.
All remote controls (cords, cables, control rods, hoses, etc.) must be positioned in locations planned for so
that they cannot accidentally trigger a manoeuvre causing risk of accidents or damage.
Before any use, check tightening of screws, nuts and couplings. Re-tighten if necessary.
Before any use and after each setting or maintenance operation, make certain that all protection devices
are in place and in good condition, and that their locking systems are engaged. It is strictly forbidden to
take or to disable any security devices (we herewith inform and warn you about the risks of serious
injuries, so as contusions, loss of a body part, bone fracture which can even go up to danger of death). In
those cases where during repair or maintenance it should be necessary to dismantle certain security
devices, it is absolutely necessary to re-assemble these devices immediately after repair or maintenance
works.
Make certain that the parcel of land does not have irregularities or debris (wood, scrap metal, plastic,
fencing, etc.) that could be projected by the machine or damage it.
The chain curtains or rubber flaps help to avoid accidental projections: if they are damaged, they have to
replaced immediately
In order to ensure higher security for the driver, you always have to use a tractor with a cabin.
Even if the machine is used in accordance with the recommendations, stones or foreign objects can be
projected. These stones or foreign objects projected by moving units may reach considerable distances.
During use you have to make sure that every person or animal always keep the necessary safety distance
to the machine.
Minimum safety distance for all machines equipped with at least one rotor: 80 metres.
Do not wear flowing garments, have long hair flowing freely or jewellery that could be seized by or get
stuck in mowing parts of the machine.
Never put your hands, arms or feet near moving parts, even those running at slow speed. Keep a safe
distance from moving parts.
If you hear an unusual noise or feel an unusual vibration, stop the machine and search for and eliminate
the cause of the incident before recommencing work. Call your distributer if necessary.
Never transport the machine with moving parts.

Never approach the machine while parts are moving.
Never leave the driver’s cabin when the tractor is running.
Before leaving the tractor, disengage the PTO, place the equipment on the ground, tighten the parking
brake, stop the tractor controls, switch off the power, wait until the rotating and/or translation parts have
come to a full standstill, and then pull the PTO shaft off the universal joint shaft (for machines so
equipped).
Before any setting or maintenance operation, disengage the PTO, place the equipment on the ground,
tighten the parking brake, stop the tractor controls, switch off the power, wait until the moving parts have
come to a full standstill and pull the PTO shaft off the universal joint shaft (for machines so equipped).
It is forbidden to work under the machine as long as it is coupled; you have to place the equipment onto a
solid surface.
Replace worn parts with genuine parts
(especially for rotating parts to avoid the risk of vibrations).
2.2 WARNINGS / PICTOGRAMS.
The warnings and pictograms affixed to the machine provide indications on safety measures to be strictly
observed and contribute to avoid accidents.
Make certain that the warnings and pictograms remain clean and visible at all times. In case of
deterioration, ask your manufacturer (or distributor) for new stickers.
In the event of repair, make sure that the replacement parts bear the same stickers as the original parts.
2.3 TOXIC PRODUCTS.
It is recommended to have a first aid kit within easy reach.
Avoid in all circumstances that products like fuel, oil, solvent, antifreeze agents and cleaning products
come into contact with skin, eyes and mouth. Most of them contain harmful substances for your health.
In case of an incident, see a doctor.
Strictly follow the indications marked on the security labels of the toxic products’ containers.
Pressurised hydraulic fluid which escapes may have sufficient force to penetrate the skin and to cause
serious injury. In case of contact with the body, consult a doctor immediately.
2.4 BLOCKAGE (CLOGGING).
If there is a blockage of the machines’ moving parts (work tool) after a clogging due to soil or vegetal
material, you first have to stop the motor, remove the ignition key or disconnect the battery (or from
electrical outlet). Place the gear lever in neutral position. Tighten the parking brake (or hand brake).
Disengage the PTO. Uncouple the drive mechanism of the work tool.
Disconnect the hydraulic supply hoses if the tool is equipped with. Wait until all the moving parts have
come to a full standstill.

PTO characteristics, etc.).
First set the gear lever to neutral, tighten the tractor and machine parking brakes and disengage the
power take-off before standing between the tractor and the machine.
In the hitching area, there is a risk of injury by being pinched and crushed.
Do not stay between the tractor and the machine during the lifting of the tractor, if this manoeuvre is
steered from the tractor’s cabin or from outside the tractor.
For manoeuvres, select the lowest tractor drive speed possible.
During hitching, place lift controls of the tractor in such a manner that it can not move during handling.
Once the machine hitched, the hitching device has to be locked. Check correct locking and good condition
of hitching before moving off.
Make certain that hitching of the machine does not lead to overload or incorrect distribution of the weight
on the tractor which could jeopardise stability.
Weight distribution is modified when hitching the machine. Do not exceed the maximum load by axle (see
indications of tractor manufacturer).
Never exceed the maximum load permitted on the hitching points.
If necessary, install ballast on the supports provided for that purpose in accordance with the tractor
manufacturer’s instructions.
During hitching or laying down the machine, remember to place all support and stability equipment in their
respective places (for machines so equipped) to avoid the machine being unbalanced.
Particular case of a « two-point » hitch: the machine is trailed by the lower links.
Hitch the machine to a tractor the lifting gear of which is equipped with lateral and vertical locking devices.
In order to travel on the road, you have to comply with the mounting height specified in the instruction
handbook and to lock the lift.
2.8 POWER TAKE-OFF / UNIVERSAL JOINT DRIVE SHAFT.

9. HITCHING TO THE TRACTOR
First of all you have to check the oil level of the angular gearbox and tightening of bolts, especially those
of the turbine blades, of the rotor knives and of the conveyor belt bars. Check greasing points.
9.1 HITCHING / COUPLING.
•
SM-P-E:
Position the machine’s drawbar on the tractors’ lifting arms
by means of lynch pins. Once ensured that the lifting arms
are in their bottom position, slowly reverse the tractor in
front of the straw blower in such a way to bring the
drawbar under the attachment points of the machine. After
having correctly positioned the bar underneath the
attachment points, you can lift the tractor’s hitching arms
until the semi-automatic system is engaged. To make sure
that the machine is correctly attached, check that the hitch
latch has returned into its initial position.
You now can hitch the third point to the machine, choosing
the right lifting kinematics with the help of the different
holes on the straw blower’s drawbar coupling. To obtain ideal hitch kinematics, you will have to ensure
that the tractor’s hitching arms being in bottom position, the machine rests perfectly on its three skids on
flat ground and the tractor’s hitching arms being in height position, during work, the machine’s conveyor
belt is in a position as horizontal as possible in order to obtain good bedding performance.
You can then use the tractor’s stabilizers to maintain your machine in central position.
•
SM-SP-E and SM-SP5-E:
Positionnez la barre de tire sur le tracteur de façon à ce que l'axe du trou d'attelage de la barre se trouve
à une distance de 400mm de l'extrémité de l'arbre de prise de force. Reculez doucement le tracteur
devant la pailleuse de façon à amener la barre de tire en face la chape de la machine. Positionnez l'axe
d'attelage avec sa goupille de sécurité. Retirez la béquille et positionnez-la sur son support de remisage.

9.2 PTO DRIVE SHAFT.
After having disengaged the power take-off and switched off the tractor enging, push on the PTO shaft on
the tractor universal joint shaft. Hook the chains of the power take-off protector to keep it in place and
immobile during rotation.
Important: You imperatively have to proceed as described below each time you hitch the
implement to a different tractor or each time you change the position or the length of the
third point in order to ascertain if the length of the PTO drive shaft is correct. Faulty setting
may lead to cause damage to the PTO and will result in rejection of warranty claims.
The PTO drive shaft delivered with the machine adapts on the majority of tractors of category 2 (NF ISO
730-1). However, it is necessary to verify its length whenever you change the tractor.
To check if the PTO is not too long (SM-P-E), you have to:
Hitch the machine to the tractor as described in the previous paragraph.
Afterwards, without connecting the PTO to the tractor, lift the machine using the tractor’s lifting device
until the machine’s PTO shaft is placed at the same height as the tractor’s PTO shaft (in this position,
the universal joint is horizontal).
-
In this configuration, the PTO drive shaft is retracted to a maximum with regard to your tractor.
To check if the PTO is not too long (SM-SP-E and SM-SP5-E), you have to:
Hitch the machine to the tractor as described in the previous paragraph.
Afterwards, without connecting the PTO to the tractor, lift the machine using its rear axle until the
machine’s PTO shaft is placed at the same height as the tractor’s PTO shaft (in this position, the
universal joint is horizontal).
-
In this configuration, the PTO drive shaft is retracted to a maximum with regard to your tractor.
It is important to position the drawbar of the BLOWER underneath the universal joint. If the bar
should ram the universal joint, it would cause irremediable damage to the latter which would not
be covered by the warranty.
Try now to bring the PTO next to the tractor power take-off. If it is too long, you have to shorten it.
Working with a too long PTO may cause damage to the latter or to the tractor’s PTO shaft.
12
BLOWER
Anderson Group
To check if the PTO is not too short, you have to:
- Hitch the machine to the tractor,
- position the machine in such a way that the PTO drive shaft is extended to a maximum (lowest
possible or highest possible position, depending on the tractor model),
- check that the maximum length in use is less than « the length closed + 1/3 of the length closed ».
In this
Length closed (ex.: 1210 mm)
Maximum length in use has to be less than: the
length closed + 1/3 of the length closed
(ex. : 1210 + 1210/3 = 1613)
example, the PTO will be long enough if, extended
to a maximum on your tractor, it measures less
than 1613 mm. For this calculation, pay attention to take as length for PTO drive shaft in closed position,
the length you get after having shortened the shaft, whenever this is necessary.
If the PTO is too short, please contact your retailer.
Working with a too short PTO may cause damage to it.
Furthermore, all recommendations of PTO shaft manufacturers have to be respected (see
enclosed manufacturer’s documentation).
PTO speed is 540 rpm. Check that, for all lift heights, the PTO drive shaft cannot collide with elements of
the machine or the tractor.
9.3 HYDRAULIC SUPPLY.
Before any hydraulic connection, make sure that the oil flow rate at the couplers of the tractor does no
exceed 58 l/min. For the use of the machine with a tractor having a higher and non-adjustable oil flow rate,
an optional oil flow throttle can be mounted on your machine. Please contact your retailer.
In order to supply your machine, the tractor has to dispose of one single acting spool valve with return flow
to the tank or one double acting spool valve. For optimum operating convenience, it is preferable that this
control spool valve disposes of a snap-in position for continuous pumping.
If all conditions described above are fulfilled, you then can connect the two hydraulic hoses paying
attention to put the entry of the spool valve on the pressure of the tractor and the exit on the return. The
exit hose is the one equipped with an anti-return valve (see figure below).

Prior to any hydraulic connection, pay attention that the couplers are clean in order to
prevent the circuit from any intrusion of impurities affecting the proper functioning of the
machine.
Check that, whatever the machine’s position, the hoses do not hang on anything.
9.4 ELECTRICAL SUPPLY.
If your machine is equipped with the signalisation set, you can move freely on public roads, connect the

10.2 STARTING UP THE MACHINE.
Prior controls:
First of all, check the angular gearbox oil level and the tightening of bolts, especially those of the the
turbine blades, the rotor knives and the conveyor belt bars. Check the greasing points. Verify the conveyor
belt chain tension and rectify tension if necessary referring to the corresponding paragraph. Verify
pressure and good condition of rubber tyres as well as tightening of tyres’ bolts.
Make sure that protection devices are in place.
Environmental conditions:
Start up the machine on hard, flat and horizontal ground. Pay attention that nobody is in the vicinity of the
machine when starting it up.
Starting up and drive of work tools:
Before loading a bale into the container, run an off-load test of the machine’s different functions. To do so,
select the desired turbine speed by means of the lever situated on the angular gearbox. Engage the
tractor PTO and progressively increase power take-off rating until the speed of 540 rpm is achieved. After
having checked that the turbine is not vibrating abnormally, you can slow down power take-off rating and
switch off the tractor PTO.
Important: As the turbine is an element having a high inertia, the angular gearbox is thus
equipped with an overrunning clutch which implies that the turbine does not stop
immediately. Indeed, the turbine can continue rotating during about 2 minutes after the
tractor PTO has been switched off.
Once the turbine has come to a stop, you can check the different hydraulic functions, and in particular the
good functioning of the conveyor belt system and the rotor.

10.3 PRACTICAL HINTS FOR USE.
Loading a bale:
-
Round bale
In order to facilitate loosening of the material, it is stongly recommended to position round bales in the
right direction so that they unroll freely when the conveyor belt is moving forward.
First of all, bring the loading gate to bottom position.
Then there are three possible solutions how to place the bale onto the loading gate:
-
Reverse in front of the bale positioning the gate’s extremity close to the ground as can be seen on the
photo below. The bale being wedged for not to move back, continue reversing the tractor to
progressively position the gate under the bale.
-
If the bale is not wedged, position the machine in front of the bale with the gate’s extremity close to
the ground as explained in the example above. Apply the parking brake and then leave the tractor
cabin to manually push the bale onto the gate.
-
Another possibility is to use a handling machine to put the bale down onto the gate being careful not
to let it fall down.
Once the bale has been positioned, slightly raise the gate in order to be able to move forward the tractor
to free up some space behind the machine. The bale on the gate being in horizontal position, leave the
tractor cabin to cut and remove the strings. Once the strings have been removed, close the loading gate
to load the bale into the box, without pressing it too much against the rotor for not to prevent the latter
from rotating freely.
Anderson Group
BLOWER
17
-
Cubic bale
Cubic bales will preferably be loaded in such a manner that the strings are located on the sides in order to
facilitate removing them thereafter.
There are two possibilities how to load a cubic bale:
-
After having opened the gate, reverse right on-line in front of the bale positioning the gate’s extremity
close to the ground for the latter to glide underneath the bale. The bale being wedged for not to move
back, continue reversing the tractor to progressively position the gate under the bale. Once the front of
the bale has reached the conveyor belt, switch the belt on in order to facilitate the bale’s moving
towards the front of the machine. Once the bale does not exceed the rear of the machine any more,
activate the tractor's lifting device to bring the bale back to horizontal position.
-
The other possibility is to use a handling machine to put the bale into the machine being careful not
to let it fall down. To avoid colliding with the sides of the machine and damaging the box,
prefer loading the bale from the rear of the machine and not from its side.
Then position the gate retaining posts in their working position and fit the restraint chain. Cut the strings
and remove them.
18

Anderson Group
10.4 TURBINE SPEED ADJUSTMENT.
Once the bale inside the container the first thing to do
is to select the turbine speed before switching on the
tractor universal joint shaft.
For changing turbine rotation speed, you can act upon
the lever located on the angular gearbox (see figure on
the right):
-
Pull the lever to let the turbine rotate at low speed,
push the lever to let the turbine rotate at high speed.
Important: The change of turbine speed is not
synchronised. Before changing the turbine speed,
it is absolutely necessary to switch off the tractor
power take-off and to wait for the turbine to come
to a complete stop.
turbine speed
adjustment lever
The use the BLOWER for feeding imposes low
turbine speed.
For bedding in animal breeding buildings, let the turbine rotate at low speed to obtain reduced bedding
distance. To do so, you have to pull the lever situated on the angular gearbox (see paragraph 11.1).
For bedding in lying areas, let the turbine rotate at high speed to obtain maximum bedding distance to be
able to reach the back of the building. To do so, you have to push the lever towards the gearbox.
For the distribution of feed like hay, wrapped or silage bales, make the turbine rotate at low speed. You
thus have to pull the lever located on the angular gearbox.
For feeding, it is important to select low turbine rotation speed. If this speed is not used
during feeding, you risk damaging your machine and no complaint for warranty will be taken
into account.
10.5 WORKING WITH THE MACHINE (SPREADING AND FEEDING).
Once the turbine speed selected, switch on the tractor power take-off and increase rating until the nominal
speed of 540 rpm is reached. When this rating is achieved, take care to position the chute correctly to
blow the feed to the desired place.
For the bales to unroll properly within the box, avoid to press them against the gate; if a bale is pressed
too much, it will not turn any more which will result in an irregular distribution of feed or even a blockage.
Start up the conveyor belt to supply the turbine with feedstuff. To this end, it is recommended to put the
tractor control unit on the position continuous pumping. The lever or switch actuating the start of the
conveyor belt disposes of a snap-in position for these elements to function without the user having to
maintain the control. Always start feeding with a minimum conveyor belt speed and then increase speed
little by little using the adjustment knob provided for this purpose (see paragraph 11.1).
Anderson Group
BLOWER
19
During bedding, there are sometimes obstacles like posts imposing to suddenly stop the straw flow. To do
so, you simply have to stop the rotor and the conveyor belt by means of the lever or the switch provided
for this purpose without stopping the turbine and to switch them on again once the obstacle is passed.
In order to improve the movement of feed in the turbine at bale’s end, it is possible to act upon several
elements. Indeed, it is preferable to completely close the gate to bring the bale as near as possible to the
rotor. Furthermore, it is possible to increase conveyor belt speed to maintain good feeding performance. It
can also be necessary to lift the machine in order to slightly tilt the conveyor belt to the front for the bale to
push more easily against the rotor.
Once the bale is finished, stop the conveyor belt, then the turbine by switching off the tractor PTO. When
the feed supply device is not operating any more, it is imperative to put the tractor control valve back to
neutral to avoid damaging main components of your hydraulic system.
It is imperative always to have the turbine in operation when the conveyor belt is actuated. If
this condition is not satisfied, there is a great risk of blockage.
The same applies if material tends to accumulate within the turbine housing in difficult conditions, it may
be necessary to slow down the conveyor belt.
10.6 TURBINE UNCLOGGING.
If despite of these precautions a blockage occurs, it is absolutely necessary to stop the tractor engine and
to remove the ignition key before intervening. To set the gear lever to neutral and to tighten the parking
brake. To disengage the power take-off and the work tool drive mechanism. To disconnect the hydraulic
supply hoses and to wait for all the moving parts to come to a full standstill.
It is possible to access the turbine through a check door situated on the front of the machine (see figure
hereafter).
check
door
The turbine having a high inertia, there is a great risk that it will move due to its own weight.
Be vigilant when through the check door because there is a risk of pinching or even of
cutting fingers. Furthermore, it is imperative to close this door using the whole number of
screws provided for this purpose before switching the machine on again.
20

Anderson Group
10.7 THE CHUTE.
The machine’s chute allows to direct the material flow to different distances by means of a hydraulic
cylinder acting upon an end-fitting.
This chute can be equipped with an optional hydraulic rotation which enables the user to spread both to
the right and to the left side of the machine.
The user controls the sensitivity of the chute’s two hydraulic functions by means of adjustment knobs.
The chute’s passing from one side to the other has always to be performed with the chute’s
end-fitting being in high position, otherwise there is a risk of interference with the straw
bale.
During chute rotation towards extreme right or left positions (towards the front of the
tractor), check that there is no possible risk of collision with the rear retain hat or the tractor
cabin.
For maximum operating convenience and optimum bedding accuracy, you can accurately adjust the chute
by means of the two knobs you can see on the photo below:
adjustment knob

10.8 ADJUSTMENT OF TOBOGGAN
The end-fitting of the chute allows more uniform feed distribution and flow slowdown at chute’s output.
Furthermore, it allows more precise orientation of feed, for example into a feeding trough.
To orientate the chute’s end-fitting, you just have to pull or push it (see figure below). The attachment
bolts are tightened in such a manner as to allow movements of the toboggan and to maintain the latter
into position once the setting is done.
Anderson Group
BLOWER
21
The toboggan of the Blower SM-SP5-E can be adjusted in inclination and in length:
-
-
The inclination is locked by means of a lever in steps. In order to perform the adjustment, you
firstly have to loosen the wing nut located on the lever, then to adjust toboggan inclination by
raising the latter using the handgrips fixed on its sides. The lever then has to be locked into one
of the 5 possible positions and, after that, the nut has to be re-tightened.
The length can then be adjusted depending on the distance to the feeding trough. In order to
perform this adjustment, you can find two wing nuts on the attachment bolts of the chute’s endfitting. You just have to slightly loosen those two nuts and to pull on the end-fitting to let it slide
into the desired length and then to tighten both nuts again.

10.9 SPECIFIC ADJUSTMENTS.
For a larger versatility of animal feedstuff, the blower dispose of several adjustment positions for feeding.
The standard setting is a position which elliptically alternates straight and inclined sections (see photo
hereafter).

sections
-
inclined
sections
It is possible to modify the sections’ positions to adapt to the kind of feed distributed:
- The position straight sections allows better distribution performance of humid feedstuff,
- the position inclined sections allows: to reduce flow rate of humid feedstuff, to have a more regular
flow rate of dry feedstuff
Alterning straight and inclined sections is a good compromise.

11. TRANSPORT
11.1 GENERAL THINGS.
On public roads, respect the Road Traffic Regulations: respect maximum authorised dimensions (width,
length). If maximum dimensions are exceeded, comply with the applicable regulations for special convoys.
For moving on public roads, it is imperative to close the loading gate to a maximum and to position the
chute on the right side in bottom position so that it does not increase frame dimensions. Furthermore, your
machine has to be equipped with the signalisation set available as an optional equipment (please contact
your retailer).
Respect the maximum axle load and the authorized total weight. Make certain that the load on the
tractor’s front axle will never be inferior to 20 % of the tractor’s weight when empty. If necessary, install
ballast to the front of the tractor.
20% mini
During transport, make sure that the lifting arms’ stabilizers are perfectly locked. This precaution prevents
lateral movements which could disturb the tractor’s driving behaviour.
Prior to any transport, control the machine’s tyre pressure. Furthermore, if after road travel you observe an
abnormally high temperature of tyres, check their cold inflation pressure. An under-inflated tyre increases
the risk of tyre blowout.
Tyre pressure 10.0/75-15.3 : 3.5 bar
Tyre pressure 11.5/80-15.3 : 2.2 bar
Respect the maximum authorized speed.
