9.13 Preventing Overheating of the Hydrostat System

If the hydrostat system overheats an acoustic warning signal occurs and an optical warning symbol appears on the display. Turn off engine and establish cause of overheating.

Then improve the effectiveness of the hydrostatic ground drive by selecting a lower shift step this will reduce the oil temperature.

If the ground drive has been killed, never wait longer than 5 seconds to reset the drive lever to

“Neutral”, then select a lower gear.

The drive moment which acts on the drive wheels depends on the oil pressure in the hydrostatic drive system. If the pressure requirement becomes higher than the pressure in the hydrostat system, the pressure relief valve will open and the self-propelled high performance mower-conditoner will not move.

As soon as the required drive moment decreases (this is achieved by selecting a lower gear) the self-propelled high performance mower-conditoner will drive on again.

9.14 Transport Information

• To meet requirements for a sufficient spacing to electrical overhead lines the total height of the machine may not exceed 4 m (13 ft).

• When driving on public roads, lower the front axle to achieve a transport height of max. 4 m.

• Observe the appropriate traffic regulations when driving or towing on public roads. Use additional warning lamps and equipment available from your KRONE dealer.

When transporting on a low-loader cover the exhaust pipe so the turbo loader cannot turn.

9.15 Transport Position

Before the lateral mower mechanisms are brought in transport position, a visual inspection of the mechanical safety devices to accomplish. The pawl (1) must itself, if the mower mechanisms are in working position in the shown position rule (

BMII-252

Moving the lateral mower units from working to transport position:

The lifting cylinders are fitted with a hydraulic cushion. That means the lateral mower units are slowed down before reaching locking pawl (1). It is therefore essential to keep the switch pressed until the lateral units are securely locked in engagement (see the „multifunction lever“ section for switch assignment).

In transport position the lateral mower mechanisms must be into the vertical position folded and mechanically locked.

In addition the mower mechanisms up to the notice must be raised. Examine the position of the mower mechanisms after folding.

When „unfolding“ is activated, the lowering process starts with a small delay since locking pawl (1) must be first be released. It is therefore essential to keep the switch pressed until the respective mower unit starts moving and reaches the headland position

Mowers

10 Mowers – General

10.1 Proper Use of the Mowers

The disc mowers are designed solely for normal agricultural use (use in accordance with specifications).

Any use of the machine for other purposes is deemed not to be in accordance with specifications. The manufacturer bears no responsibility for any resulting damage – such use is entirely at the operator's risk.

Use in accordance with specifications also includes observing the operating, maintenance and service instructions prepared by the manufacturer.

The disc mower must only be used, maintained and repaired by personnel who are acquainted with the machine and have been informed of the dangers involved.

The applicable accident prevention regulations and all other generally recognized safety, health and road traffic regulations must be observed.

Any unauthorized alterations to the machine render any liability for damage undertaken by the manufacturer null and void.

• To prevent an individual mower from overloading, when operating a single mower do not drive faster than you would operating all mowers simultaneously.

• The mowers are suitable for and intended for cutting crops growing on the ground!

• The mowers are not suitable for mowing embankments!

• Maintain an adequate safety distance to the cutting tools during operation.

• The support skids must rest on the ground before start-up and during work!

• Stones and similar objects can also be slung even when the mower is used correctly.

Therefore no-one may remain in the danger area! Special care should be taken while working near roads and buildings.

• Check the safety guards regularly. Worn or damaged safety guards should be replaced!

• The protective equipment on the mower, e.g. guards and guard plates, protects against flying stones and similar objects as well as prevents dangerous parts being accessed. They should therefore be brought into protection position before work starts.

• Keep clear of the slewing range of the mowers while they are mowed from transport into operating position and vice versa.

• The accident prevention regulations must be observed.

X - 1

Mowers

10.2 Adjusting the Mowers

10.2.1 Special Safety Instructions

• Maintenance, cleaning and repair work should be done only when the machine is at a standstill. Switch off the engine, remove the ignition key. Secure the machine from rolling away.

• After completing maintenance work reattach all protective devices properly. Avoid skin contact with oil and grease. Contact a doctor immediately if injuries are caused by escaping oil.

• The cutter blades can continue to rotate after the drive has been switched off.

Only approach the machine once the work tools have come to a complete standstill!

The disc mowers are designed for forwards travel. If the road safety switch is in field position, the mowers are automatically lifted out during reversing.

10.2.2 Guards on the Mowers

Fold down the side plates (1) before operation.

• Check the safety guards (2,3) regularly.

• Replace worn or damaged safety guards.

The protective equipment on the mowers, e.g. guards and guard plates, protects against flying stones and similar objects as well as prevents dangerous parts being accessed.

The protective canvas (1) must be tightened each time before using the mower so that it cannot be caught by the auger of the conditioner.

10.2.3 Setting the Cutting Height

Adjustments must always be made only when the drive is switched off and the tractor engine is at a standstill! Remove the ignition key!

Secure the tractor against rolling away.

The cutting height is set individually for each mower:

The tilt of the disc mowers and thus the cutting height is adjusted via threaded spindles. There is an extension pipe in the tool box.

Before adjusting the cutting height, it is essential to move the front axle to

„mowing position“ (see the section

„manual operation of axle spring suspension“).

Front mower

With the quick-coupling triangle (Weiste triangle), the front mower can be suspended in multiple positions, resulting in the front mower being able to be lifted more or less high.

Upper position (1): Front mower is lifted higher

Center position (2): Standard position

Lower position (3): Front mower is lifted less high

Controlling the top link arm in the lower positions (2,3) of the Weiste triangle results in a smaller change of the front mower tilt, which results in the cutting height remaining constant during ground adaptations in extremely uneven terrain.

Cutting height can be varied by adjusting top link (1).

Longer top link arm =

Shorter top link arm = shorter cutting height longer cutting height

10.2.4 Setting the Ground Pressure

Before adjusting the ground pressure, it is essential to move the front axle to

„mowing position“ (see the section

„manual operation of axle spring suspension“).

Front mower

The ground pressure of the cutterbars is adapted to the local conditions using compensation springs. In order to protect the turf the cutterbars should be relieved to such an extent that they do not jump during mowing and do not leave any marks on the ground.

• The adjustment of the compensation springs must only be carried out when the front disc mower is in transport position. In working position, the compensation springs are under a high tension.

• Before adjusting the adjustment piece (1) the front mower must be set to transport position.

• Undo lynch-pin (3).

• Unhook springs (2).

• Insert adjustment piece (1) into the hole desired.

• Hang springs (2) and secure with lynch-pin (3).

• On the mower side the springs are mounted in the top hole (6).

Adjustment piece (1) in top position (4) = lower spring tension = increased ground pressure

Adjustment piece (1) in bottom position (5) = higher spring tension = reduced ground pressure

For slope compensation the front mower must be in central position (see chapter

3.4, Multi-function Lever)

Side mowers

The side mowers are relieved via four extension springs (1) on the left-hand and right-hand arm.

The ground pressure can be set by moving the pin (2).

• Raise the side mowers above the stand-by position so the compensation springs are relieved.

• First remove the lynch-pin and then pull out the pin (2).

• Pin further to the left: lower ground pressure

• Pin further to the right: higher ground pressure

• Insert pin (2) and secure with lynch-pin

Maximum relief when driving on the road. Mount bolts in stage 3 (medium bore).

• Taking off the compensation springs when the mower is in working position can cause serious injury.

• The lower screw-in sections of the compensation springs must be completely screwed in.

10.2.5 Adjusting the Front Axle Height

The sensor for the height adjustment of the front axle is located at the front bottom left, at the frame next to the articulated drive shaft.

The sensor for the front axle height can be mounted at two different positions.

Pos. 1 (lower hole) = Standard

Mounting the sensor in the upper Pos. 2 results in a lower front frame position, to achieve extremely low cutting heights.

To do this:

• Undo the check-nut (2).

• Remove the sensor (1) from Pos. 1.

• Adjust sensor (1) in Pos. 2 until the distance X is set to 1.5–2 mm.

• Retighten the check-nut (2).

10.2.8 Setting the Conditioner Cover Plate

(Big M CV)

The conditioning effect of the mowing crop can be influenced by adjusting the conditioner cover plate using the screw (1). Turning clockwise increases the conditioner effect with an increase in power consumption. Turning the screw anticlockwise reduces the conditioning effect.

• Adjust the conditioner cover plate with the adjustment pin (1) in side mowers.

• Always check the conditioner roller (1) for damaged

V-tines (2) before operation.

• Straighten bent tines.

• Replace broken tines.

• Check bearing pins and bushing on tine mountings. To avoid losing tines, replace bearing pins and bushings in good time!

The conditioner shaft turns at up to approx. 1000 r.p.m. Bent and broken tines cause unbalanced rotation. For this reason replace broken V-tines immediately.

10.2.9 Setting the Roller Conditioner

(optional equipment / Big M CRi)

General

The roll conditioner is specially designed for conditioning leguminous crops or other crops with fragile leaf stalks.

Conditioning intensity is adjusted by varying the clearance and the pressure between both rollers by means of bolts and tension springs. Minimum clearance

(x) between the conditioning rollers should be 2 mm.

Adjusting the clearance between the rollers

Bolt (1) (rh and lh side of the machine) can be used to adjust the clearance (x) between both rollers. For this release locknut (2) and adjust with bolt (1) as follows:

Turning the bolt in direction 1 reduces the clearance

Turning the bolt in direction 2 increases the clearance

• Tighten locknut (2) firmly.

Maintenance and Care

11.19 Checking and Maintaining

Tyres

• Check the tyres daily for damage and correct pressure as the tyre service life depends on the tyre pressure.

• Repair cuts or tears in the tyres as soon as possible or change tyres.

• Do not expose tyres to oil, grease, fuel, chemicals or let them stand in the sunlight for long periods.

• Drive carefully; avoid driving over sharp stones or edges.

• Check the tyre pressure at least once per week with an accurate instrument. (see cap. 1.2.7)

BMII-234

11.20 Fitting Tyres

• Fitting tyres requires sufficient knowledge and the availability of proper tools! Incorrect fitting can lead to the tyre bursting with an explosion when it is pumped up. This can cause serious injury. If you do not have sufficient experience of fitting tyres, the tyres should be fitted by the KRONE dealer or a qualified tyre specialist.

• When fitting tyres on the wheel rims, the maximum pressure given by the tyre manufacturer must not be exceeded. The tyre or even the wheel rim could burst with an explosion.

• If the tyre heels do not fit properly when the maximum permitted pressure is reached, let out the air, align tyres, lubricate tyre heels and pump up the tyre again.

• Detailed information on fitting tyres on agricultural machinery can be obtained from the tyre manufacturers.

Never operate the self-propelled high performance mower-conditioner with the tyre pressure which is normal when the tyres are dispatched. Keep the valve caps fitted on the valves to keep dirt out.

Check tyre pressure frequently!

11.21 Wheel Fixing

Tighten the wheel nuts after the first and then every

20 to 25 operating hours with 700 Nm.

Number of batteries -------------------------------------------- 2

Battery voltage ----------------------------------------------------12 V

Battery capacity ----------------------------------------(2x) 135 AH

12.2 Batteries

The self-propelled high performance mower-conditioner is equipped with two batteries, each 12 V (135 AH), which are connected parallel.

12.3 Battery Main Switch

There is an interrupter switch (1) for the battery minus cable at the rear left-hand side of the vehicle in case of repairs and emergencies.

I - Switch pushed in and locked: battery is connected.

II - Switch pulled out: battery is disconnected.

The battery will drain if the ignition is set to stage 1 or 2, even if the main switch is switched off.

During repair work (welding) always switch off engine , set main battery switch (1) to pos. II and remove the cable plug from the unit pump (PLD) control unit at the engine!

Maintenance - Electrical System

12.4 Battery - Dangers

General:

Always keep the battery clean of dust and chaff.

Batteries develop a highly explosive electrolyte gas. Avoid ignition sources and naked flames near the battery.

Before carrying out work on the electrical system or on the engine, always disconnect the earth cable or open the battery main switch.

Quick charging:

When quick charging the battery, disconnect the battery minus cable and open all battery cells to avoid damage to the electrical system.

Remove plastic covers from the battery to prevent highly explosive gases collecting.

Removing the battery:

Always disconnect the earth cable first and then the plus cable before removing the battery.

12.5 Clean Battery

• Clean the battery when necessary.

• Remove oxidation on the pole terminal with a brush.

• Apply battery grease to the battery poles and pole clamps.

• Keep the sealing plug ventilating holes open.

12.6 Battery - Checking Acid Level

If you top up the distilled water in winter, allow the engine to run for approx.

30 minutes to mix the water and acid properly.

• Check the acid level every 250 operating hours. The acid should reach the marking above the plate upper edge.

Only use distilled water.

XII - 2

Maintenance - Electrical System

12.7 Battery - Measuring the Acid

Density

• Measure the acid density of each battery cell with an acid tester.

A fully charged battery should have an acid density of 1.28

in normal climatic conditions.

• Recharge the battery when the density falls below 1.20.

12.8 Installing Batteries and

Connecting Poles Correctly

Always connect the battery poles correctly:

The plus cable (coming from the starter) to the plus poles, the minus cable

(coming from earth) to the minus poles.

Not observing the correct polarity between the batteries and alternators can cause serious damage to the electrical system.

12.9 Alternator

Before carrying out work on the electrical system remove the plus cable at the batteries, in order to avoid damage.

The cable contacts of the plus cable are to be protected against inadvertent contact with the battery contacts.

For further information please refer to the operating instructions for

"DaimlerChrysler Engines" supplied

(chapter Mounting/De-mounting V-Ribs)

Have the alternator checked once per year at a specialist workshop.

Maintenance - Electrical System

12.10 Starter

Before carrying out work on the electrical system remove the plus cable at the batteries and the battery main switch disconnect, in order to avoid damage.

The cable contacts of the plus cable are to be protected against inadvertent contact with the battery contacts.

If the starter fails or does not work properly, find the cause of the problem.

If the suggestions below do not solve the problem, contact your KRONE dealer. Have the starter checked thoroughly once per year at a specialist workshop.

Loose, dirty or corroded cable connections:

• clean and tighten cable connections on the starter.

• Clean the earthing wires on the motor and tighten the connection to the motor.

Battery power too weak:

• check electrolyte level as well as acid density, recharge battery if necessary.

Flat battery:

• Charge battery.

Use of incorrect engine oil viscosity:

• Always use the right engine oil according to the specifications.

Faulty starter safety relay:

• Replace relay.

12.11 Fuses

The fuses are at a central point in the control box (3) on a board.

Only allow Krone customer service or a dealer to carry out work on the electronics!

Fuse and relay designations can be found on the circuit board.

13.1 Special Safety Instructions

• Maintenance, cleaning and repair work should be done only when the machine is at a complete standstill. Shut down the engine and remove the ignition key.

• Repair, maintenance, service and cleaning must only be carried out by authorised specialists.

• When carrying out repair, maintenance, service and cleaning of the coolant circuit, coolant emissions can occur, both liquid or gaseous, which pose a hazard for man and environment. Take suitable protective measures (wear protective goggles and protective gloves).

• In case of coolant burns a doctor must be consulted and the data sheet (see page XIII - 2) must be taken with you.

• Ensure adequate ventilation when working on the cooling system.

• During refill and repair do not let coolants escape but dispose off in recycling container.

• The spare parts used must comply with the technical requirements of the machine manufacturer. Therefore only use KRONE original spare parts.

13.6 Refrigerant

The air conditioning system is operated with 2000 g of refrigerant

R134a (tetrafluoroethane). This substance does not contain any chlorine atoms, and thus is inoffensive to the ozone in the atmosphere of the environment.

Nonetheless, the refrigerant must not be drained; it must be collected at a recycling plant. For this reason do not sever any connecting pipes. Have maintenance and repair work on the air conditioning system carried out only by your Krone dealer with a suitable disposal and recycling equipment.

13.7 Manometric switch

When the fan speed is at the highest still pleasant performance, set the cooling performance of the air conditioning system to an average value. Let the air conditioning system not operate at the lowest fan speed and highest cooling performance.

The air conditioning system has been fitted with a manometric switch (2) which shuts down the system in case of over or under pressure (at the drier behind the all-purpose cooler on the left-hand side in driving direction)

13.8 Fresh air fan and circulation mode (cabin)

Fresh air fan

A fresh air filter (3) in the form of a wedge filter cell is located in the upper cab area behind the gill screen (2) on the left hand side in direction of travel. This filter (3) protects the driver in the cab against dust or airborne dirt, which is outside the cab.

Check the filter for soiling prior to any operation.

If filters are not properly maintained they may become very soiled, no longer ensuring that sufficient fresh air is passed into the cab.

• Open the closing device (1) by turning 90° clockwise.

• Pull the gill screen (2) out; check the wedge filter cell (3) for soiling and clean, if and when necessary.

• Shake out the filter (3); never use compressed air. In case of severe soiling, the filter (3) has to be replaced.

13.9 Collector / Drier

The ambient temperature must be above the set thermostat temperature

(usually +1°C) for the compressor to switch on.

Since an operating over-pressure is present inside the coolant collector it manufacturing and testing is subject to the

Druckbehälterverordnung (pressure vessel code).

In this code the pressure vessels are classified according to the permissible operating over-pressure p in bar, its capacity in liters and the pressure capacity product p x l into test group

II.

According to § 10 of the Druckbehälterverordnung (pressure vessel code) these pressure vessels are subject to a recurring examination by an expert according to § 32. In this case, recurring examinations consists of external checks, ususally at vessels which are in operation. The coolant collector must be checked visually twice a year in connection with the inspection. Particular attention must be given to coorosion and mechanical damage. If the proper is not in proper condition, it must be repaced for safety reasons, to make sufficient provision for the protection of operators and others due to the danger during handling or operation of pressure vessels.

13.10 Checking State and Filling

Amount of the Coolant

Use the white float to check the amount of coolant.

Some loss of coolant through the hoses in the climate control system is unavoidable. Check the coolant level every 200 hours. To do this, keep the engine running and the climate control system switched on (and turned to maximum cooling) and check the inspection window (2) in the desiccator (1).

• If the white float is at the top, the coolant level is O.K.

• If the white float is at the bottom, you must top up the coolant (specialised workshop)

2

Use the blue indicator bead to check the moisture saturation.

Moisture in the coolant circuit is collected in the filter desiccator.

• If the indicator bead has a blue hue, the moisture saturation is O.K.

• If the indicator bead has a pinkish hue, the desiccator must be changed (specialised workshop).

13.11 Check the condenser

• Check the condenser component (in front of the cooler) for soiling.

• Clean the condensor block depending on its degree of soiling, however at least once per month.

• Blow through the condenser block with compressed air from the inside to the outside, making sure that the .

fins are not damaged.

14.1 At the End of the Harvest

Season

• If possible, park the self-propelled high-performance mower-conditioner in a protected and dry place.

• Clean the self-propelled high-performance mowerconditioner on the inside through the maintenance openings and on the outside. Chaff and dirt attract moisture causing steel parts to rust.

If a high pressure washing device is used, do not direct the water jet into the bearings or electrical/electronic parts.

• Lubricate the self-propelled mower according to the lubrication chart. Grease the threads of adjusting screws and similar parts; relieve springs. Transport locking catch for lateral mowers: Grease the bolt.

• Grease the blank piston rods of all hydraulic cylinders and retract as far as possible.

• Wet all lever joints, cutterbar and bearing points without lubrication with oil.

Write down all maintenance work which has to be carried out before the next harvest and send order in good time.

Your KRONE dealer can carry out servicing work and any necessary repairs outside the harvesting time.

14.3 Before the Start of a New

Season

The self-propelled high-performance mower-conditioner should be inspected thoroughly before the start of the new season. If the self-propelled high-performance mowerconditioner is in perfect working order, costly breakdowns can be avoided during the harvest season.

The self-propelled high-performance mower-conditioner should be cleaned on the inside and outside unless you have already done so at the end of the last season.

• Fit any belts and V-belts which may have been removed and check the belt tension.

• Remove covers from engine openings.

• Lubricate the machine completely according to the lubrication chart.

• Check whether all pins have been tightened and all split pins are fitted.

• Check all seals as well as the quantities in the cooling system. The frost and corrosion protection agent must also be used in the cooling system during the summer months as it protects the system against corrosion.

• Check batteries. Check the charging level and acid level; if necessary, recharge batteries.

• Check the tyre pressure.

• Allow the self-propelled high-performance mowerconditioner to run for approxim-ately an hour at half speed. Now check all bearings for overheating.

14.4 Overload clutch -ByPy

Totally release the four hex. socket head cap screws (2).

The thread does not extend over the full length of the screws, so they cannot be turned out of the clutch.

The clutch is now ready for use.

14.4.1 Bleeding the oveload clutch of the universal joint drive shaft

Firmly tighten the hexagon socket head cap screws (2) of the overload clutch at the start of the idle period. This will release the clutch linings from the pressure of the cup springs and minimise the risk of sticking. The disc clutch is bled.

At the start of the next operation proceed as described above (chap 14.4).
