SAFETY GUIDELINES
This manual contains information that is important for you, the owner/operator, to know and
understand. This information relates to protecting personal safety and preventing
equipment problems. It is the responsibility of the owner/operator to inform anyone
operating or working in the area of this equipment of these safety guidlines.To help you
recognize this information, we use the symbols that are defined below.
Please read the manual and pay attention to these sections. Failure to read this manual

This is the safety alert symbol. It is used to alert you
to potential personal injury hazards. Obey all
safety messages that follow this symbol to avoid
possible injury or death.
DANGER indicates an imminently hazardous situation which, if not
avoided, will result in death or serious injury.
WARNING indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not
avoided, could result in death or serious injury.
CAUTION indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not
avoided, may result in minor or moderate injury.

1.
Disconnect all power before servicing or adjusting. Have bin properly grounded.
2.
Do not enter a bin while the unit is operating without proper eye protection.
3.
Do not attempt to service or adjust the unit from a ladder unless the ladder is
secured to another piece of equipment or to the bin. The grain spreader can
swing and will not support a ladder. Be sure electrical power is disconnected.
4.
Power cords, plug and receptacles should be the grounded type to prevent injury.
5.
All wiring should be done according to the National Electric Code and by a
qualified electrician.
6.
Read and understand the operator’s manual.
WARNING:
Failure to follow these instructions may result in personal injury or property damage.

Installation and Operation

Installation
Figure 1: Hanger Brackets and Chains
The hanger brackets should be positioned
equally spaced around the outer fill hole lip of
the bin. Do not tighten the bracket hardware
until the spreader has been installed and
leveled. Hang the spreader from these brackets by hooking the two chains that are attached to each of the spreader support arms
to two adjacent hanger brackets. When
properly hung, each set of chains will form a
“V” and will restrict random movement of the
spreader.
The spreader can be installed at various
heights in the bin depending on the bin diameter and roof angle. The spreader should be
installed as level as possible by checking with
a level and adjusting the position of the hanger
brackets and/or the lengths of the chains.

Fig. 2
Finish the installation by securely tightening
the hanger brackets.
Wiring: Refer to the Wiring Diagram and Tables A & B on the next page.
ADJUSTMENT & OPERATION
Figure 2: Slide Gate Adjustment
The slide gates are provided in the pan to allow grain to be spread in the center of the bin. These are
usually to be open wider for smaller diameter bins.
Figure 3: Center Cone Adjustment
It is important that the incoming grain be directed onto the center of the baffle cone in order to disperse the grain evenly in the hopper. This cone functions as a flow control and can be adjusted by
lifting it from the spreader and placing the hairpin clip in one of the holes in the baffle post. The cone
needs to be adjusted higher above the spreader pan for greater capacities and lower for lesser
rates. Best spreading results are obtained when the cone is adjusted to maintain a cushion of grain
in the hopper.
Item 4: Slinger Adjustment
982, 986 & 996 Econo-Mizers have slingers that can be adjusted to accommodate various sizes of
bins and grain densities. The slingers will throw grain farther when in the most advanced position
(hole #1) and will not throw as far when in the swept back position (hole #3). A guide line to use for
adjusting is to use the third hole for 18 foot diameter bins, the middle hole for 24 - 30 foot bins and
the first hole for 33 foot and larger bins.

INSTALLATION
Use Tables A & B to determine the proper size of fuse protection and the length and size
of wiring required. Portable extension cords, if used, should be as short as possible to
minimize voltage drop. Cords that are too long, or cords that are made of inadequate wire
gauge, can cause the motor to fail.

ADJUSTMENT & OPERATION OF
CONE HOPPER BAFFLE
The cone hopper baffle is used to restrict the entering grain and slow it down
enough to ensure that the cone will always be full and overflowing with grain. The
cone baffle should be adjusted high enough above the spreading pan to allow the
overflowing grain to flow between the hopper and the cone baffle and to not flow
over the sides of the main hopper. Entering grain should be directed onto the
expanded metal restrictor on top of the cone baffle.

TROUBLE SHOOTING
PROBLEM
Grain is high on
one side of bin.
CORRECTION
a. Spreader is not hung level.
b. Grain is not hitting the center of the baffle
c. The baffle is too high causing the grain to slide off one side.
d. The flow of grain is not adequate to fill the center hopper,
see instructions for cone baffle hopper.
Grain is high at the
center of bin.
a. Slide gate is open too far.
b. Check to make sure spreader is running.
c. Grain is overflowing the main hopper - raise center baffle
or slow grain flow rate.
Grain is low at the
center of bin.
a. Slide gate is not open enough.
b. Slingers on pan are set too far out.
Grain forms “donut”
a few feet from wall.
a. Slingers on pan are set too far out (grain is hitting the wall
and bouncing back).
b. Open slide gate to fill center of bin.
c. Spreader model is not adequate for bin size.
Grain not getting
all the way to wall.
a. Spreader pan is turning the wrong direction: Pan should
turn clockwise when viewed from the top.
b. Rubber drive wheel is slipping - replace if badly worn.
c. Spreader is hanging too high in the center of the bin.
d. Spreader model is not adequate for bin size.
Spreader swings
when starting.
a. Hanging chains are not installed correctly - they should
be equally spaced and positioned as in Figure 2 of
installation instructions.
Spreader does
not run.
a. Rubber drive wheel may be slipping due to excessive
moisture or broken motor mount spring.
b. Motor overload may have tripped. It will reset automatically after the motor has cooled.
c. Blown fuse or circuit breaker.
d. Too much voltage drop. See Table A for proper wiring
size.
Spreader pan slows
down when loaded.
