Used to transport and dump the cart when it is converted into a push cart.
Secures the cart bed to the tongue.
Extends forward or folds under the cart for towing with a tractor or pushing by hand.
Supports the front of the cart when the front tongue is folded under the cart.
Use to attach the cart to your tractor.
Secures the front tongue in either the extended (shown) or folded position.
Prevents the latch lock mechanism from accidentally releasing.
HOW TO USE YOUR TOW CART
•
DO NOT EXCEED 500 LB. CAPACITY OF CART
One cubic foot of dirt weighs approximately 80 lbs.
•
CAUTION: Vehicle braking and stability
may be affected with the addition of an
accessory or attachment. Be aware of
changing conditions on slopes.
•
•
USING AS A TOW CART
• To convert the cart for towing, remove the plastic cap
from the tongue. Remove the 4" long clevis pin and
hairpin cotter which secure the front tongue in storage
position underneath the rear tongue. Pivot the front
tongue outward and secure it in the towing position
using the same clevis pin and hairpin cotter. Refer to
drawing above.
• The maximum towing speed for this cart is 10 m.p.h.
• Refer to the vehicle owners manual for instructions on
safe operation on slopes.
Use the slope guide provided on page 11 of this
manual to determine whether slope angle is too steep
for safe operation.
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.
For best handling and traction, distribute the weight of
the load evenly in the cart.
To dump material from the cart, remove the 1" long
clevis pin from the latch on the tongue and release the
latch. 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. Reinstall the clevis pin in the latch to prevent
accidental release of the latch.
CAUTION: To avoid possible injury,
be sure no one is near the cart before
releasing the latch.
8
USING AS A PUSH CART
IMPORTANT: Leave the latch lock clevis pin in place at
all times while using the cart as a push cart. The clevis
pin is shown in figure 1 on page 4.
•
For best handling, and to help prevent accidental
tipping, distribute the weight of the load evenly in the
cart.
•
•
Do not load more weight into the push cart than you
can handle and control comfortably.
•
To dump material from the push cart, lift up on the
handle and tilt the cart forward. Be sure that the latch
mechanism on the tongue is locked and secured with
the clevis pin to prevent accidental release of the
latch.
To convert the cart for push operation, remove the 4"
long clevis pin and hairpin cotter which secure the
tongue in the towing position. (See drawing on page
8.) Pivot the front tongue into the storage position
underneath the rear tongue and secure it using the
same clevis pin and hairpin cotter. (See figure 5 on
page 5.) Place the plastic cap over the exposed end
of the tongue.
