Safety precautions
DO NOT allow anyone to stand between the tractor
and the implement during coupling or uncoupling.
Note that this includes stepping between the tractor
and implement to operate the external hydraulic
controls (risk of injury).
Set the tractor’s control hydraulics to ”position
control” before coupling and uncoupling.
The operator is responsible for ”safety”. Before
operating the tractor and the implement, ensure that
they are both in safe operating and transport
condition.
Ensure that the tractor can be steered safely by
attaching an adequate counterweight to the front of
the tractor if necessary.
Note that there is a danger of crushing and cutting
injuries occurring in the area of the three-point
linkage and the collapsible side sections.
Before moving or operating the implement (folding in
/ out), always check to ensure that no one is
standing within its turning circle or operating area.
Beware of after-running roller segments when the
implement is lifted at the end of a fast run; do not
approach until the rollers have come to a complete
stop.
DO NOT stand or ride on the implement or remain
within its turning circle or operating area.
Disable the tractor’s hydraulic control system to
prevent accidental operation while the implement is
being towed.
Before leaving the tractor unattended, lower the
implement, switch off the engine and remove the
ignition key.
Always lower the implement before carrying out any
adjustments or maintenance work.
Take the centre of gravity into account when folding
in or transporting the implement on steep slopes
(along the contour line).
Never fold in or fold out the implement when
dismantled!
Before operating for the first time – or after long
downtimes – check all screws and bolts for
tightness, ensure that all bearings are adequately
greased and examine the hydraulic system for
leaks.

Set-up
3
Check both parts of the coupling for compatibility
(cat.: tractor/ implement).
Set the lower links of the tractor to the same height.
Couple the lower link shaft.
Set the upper control arm to a height that allows it
to reach the implement when in operation.
Correctly secure the coupling assembly (three-point
linkage).
Couple the hydraulic hoses: twin-acting – 2
connections – and ensure they are properly
connected.
Function:
”Lift”
- Fold in
”Depress/Lower - Fold out
1
Raise the support legs
1
Check that there is no clashing when the
implement is folded in/folded out, e.g. with a
hinged rear window
Transportation position
To fold in or fold out, lift the implement slightly.
If a 4.5 m long implement is being used, do not fold
in when the harrow leafs are set very low unless the
two outer sections have already been adjusted to a
”flatter” position – connector 4/1 (not required for tilth
harrows).
4
1
If using a 9 m implement, turn down the locking
hooks (5/1) so that they lock automatically before
folding in the implement – ensure they have
engaged correctly.
Insert the track looseners at a low implement width.
Make allowances for the transportation height –
over 4 m.
1
Mount the lighting gear together with the warning
labels (3/1 = Additional Equipment)
Fasten the lower link of the tractor to the side.
Secure the control units in the tractor.
5
See page 7 for further details of road-transport
procedures.
Converting to operating position: Fold out the
side sections. On the ”9 m implement”, briefly
activate the pressure transducer to ”fold in” and
disengage the locking device (5/1)
4
Operation
1
Avoid taking sharp curves during operation and
always raise the implement before reversing.
The lower links of the tractor should be positioned to
one side; limit any lateral movement on steep slopes.
Bring the implement frame into horizontal position by
adjusting the length of the top link.
Move the combination to ”float”; the position of the
top link will act on the roller pressure:
… steep incline of top link to implement – less roller
pressure
… level incline of top link to implement – more roller
pressure.
6
Working depth of harrow: in the perforated jibs (6/
1), pre-select using the connector – set all to the
same value.
Levelling board: The spring-mounted tined levelling
board levels and ”breaks up” rough clods of earth. It is
led regardless of the working depth of the harrow;
… make any necessary height adjustments at (7/1)
(do not allow any walls of earth to be shunted from
the front)
… each tine (7/2) can be adjusted individually.
1
2
Track looseners: (rigid or spring-mounted) – adapt
these to the necessary track width.
The depth control is pin adjustable (7/3)
- do not set the looseners too deep.
The loosener shares are reversible.
Overload backup on rigid looseners: splint pin 8 x 50
mm.
Fully raise the looseners on the ”9 m implement”
before transporting.

7
Dismantling / Parking
The implement may be parked folded out or folded in
(secured for transport) – on rollers or supporting legs
(9/1); the rear support leg also used for ”9 m”
implements (8/1)
Ensure the implement is on solid ground!
Keep the hydraulic coupler free of dust.

Maintenance
Before working on the attached implement, switch
off the engine and remove the ignition key.
DO NOT work under a raised implement.
If the implement needs to be raised, take adequate
precautions to prevent the implement from dropping
by accident.
Before working on the hydraulic system, completely
lower the implement in its folded out position and
release any hydraulic pressure.
Dispose of used oil correctly (hydraulic oil is
mineral-based).
1
After initial use (approx. 8 h), retighten all screws
and bolts and then re-check their tightness at
regular intervals.
Grease the folding frame bearing and crumbling roller
bearing at regular intervals (universal lithium-based
grease).
Daily: tow rod guides (10/1), spring-mounted track
loosener (10/2).
Ensure all linkages are moving freely.
Readjust the stop screws, if required. The side
frame should run parallel to the centre section (11/1
or 12/1) and be folded in (11/2 or 12/2).

Check the hydraulic hose regularly for signs of
damage or brittleness and replace as required (see
list of spare parts). These hoses are subject to a
natural ageing process and should in any case be
replaced after 5-6 years, regardless of their apparent
condition.
2
2
Avoid directing the hose ”at the bearings” for any
length of time when cleaning the implement with
high-pressure water.
With the implement parked, apply a corrosionprevention agent to all tools and conserve the piston
rods with acid-free grease.
Touch up any chipped or damaged paintwork.

Replace worn shares immediately, or turn twin-core
shares around. (Use original spares only).

Precautions / Road transport
Set the implement to transportation position and
check that it is roadworthy.
DO NOT allow anyone to stand or ride on the
implement, or remain within its turning circle or
operating area.
Observe the relevant speed limits and traffic
regulations when transporting the implement by
road.
Take care when negotiating curves, as towed
implements tend to swing out.
Account for centre of gravity on inclines and in
curves.
Observe your local road traffic regulations (Highway
Code). These regulations normally hold the user
responsible for the secure hitching and safe
operation on public roads of the tractor and the
implements being towed.
Implements must not impair the safe steering of
traction engines. The permissible axle loads, the
permissible total weight or the wheel bearing
capacity (depending on the speed and tyre
pressure) may not be exceeded as a result of the
mounted implement. To ensure safe steering, the
front axle load of the tractor must not be less than
20 % of the empty weight of the vehicle.
The maximum permitted transportation width is 3
metres. A special permit is normally required for
moving oversized loads.
No avoidably overhanging item must endanger other
traffic or road users (sect. 32 StVZO [German
highway code] or your local equivalent). Overhanging
items that cannot be avoided must be covered and
fitted with warning signs.
Safety devices include appropriate lighting and signs
around all sides and the rear of the vehicle and
towed implement, e.g. size 423 x 423 mm, red/
white striped warning labels (DIN 11030).
Lighting is required if the towed implement blocks
those already fitted to the tractor, or weather
conditions make it advisable: e.g. to front and rear, if
the towed implement exceeds the width of the
tractor’s lights by more than 40 cm, or overhangs by
more than 1 metre with respect to the existing rear
lights.
A lighting system – with warning labels – can also
be obtained from RABE as an optional extra.
