OPERATION
MAINTENANCE
1. At the beginning of each season, using a light
machine oil, lubricate the latch, the latch pivot bolt,
and the area of the axle where the draw bar tongue
pivots.
CAUTION: Vehicle braking and stability
may be affected with the addition of an
accessory or an attachment. Be aware of
changing conditions on slopes.
2. Grease or oil the wheel bearings periodically. Use
automotive wheel bearing type grease or 20 weight
oil.
1. Refer to the vehicle owners manual for instructions on
safe operation on slopes.
3. Check periodically for loose bolts.
2. Use the slope guide provided on page 7 of this
manual to determine whether slope angle is too steep
for safe operation.
4. Keep tires filled to the recommended tire pressure of
12-14 Lbs.
3. For best handling and traction, distribute the weight of
the load evenly in the cart.
4. Always test to make sure your tractor has adequate
towing and braking capabilities whenever hauling a
substantial amount of weight in your cart. Use extra
caution when operating on slopes.
NOTE
DO NOT EXCEED 350 LB. CAPACITY OF CART
One cubic foot of dirt weighs approximately 80 lbs.
5. To dump material from the cart, release the spring
latch on the tongue by pulling the latch lock lever
forward, away from the cart. The cart bed will then tilt
backwards to empty its contents. After emptying, pull
the front of the bed down toward the cart tongue until
the latch snaps into place.
6. The maximum towing speed for this cart is 10 m.p.h.
CAUTION: To avoid possible injury,
before releasing the latch be sure that
no one is near the cart.
