!
Look for the Safety Alert Symbol
The SAFETY ALERT SYMBOL indicates there is a
potential hazard to personal safety involved and extra
safety precaution must be taken. When you see this
symbol, be alert and carefully read the message that
follows it. In addition to design and configuration of
equipment, hazard control, and accident prevention are
dependent upon the awareness, concern, prudence, and
proper training of personnel involved in the operation,
transport, maintenance, and storage of equipment.
Be Aware of
Signal Words
A signal word designates a degree or
level of hazard seriousness. The
signal words are:
! DANGER
Indicates a hazardous situation that, if
not avoided, will result in death or
serious injury.
Safety Precautions for
Children
Tragedy can occur if the operator
is not alert to the presence of
children. Children generally are
attracted to implements and their
work.
 Never assume children will remain
where you last saw them.
 Keep children out of the work area
and under the watchful eye of a
responsible adult.
 Be alert and shut the implement
and tractor down if children enter
the work area.
 Never carry children on the tractor
or implement. There is not a safe
place for them to ride. They may
fall off and be run over or interfere
with the control of the power
machine.
 Never allow children to operate the
power machine, even under adult
supervision.
 Never allow children to play on the
power machine or implement.
 Use extra caution when backing
up. Before the tractor starts to
move, look down and behind to
make sure the area is clear.
! WARNING
Indicates a hazardous situation that, if
not avoided, could result in death or
serious injury.
! CAUTION
Indicates a hazardous situation that, if
not avoided, may result in minor or
moderate injury.
Tractor Shutdown & Storage
 If engaged, disengage power
take-off.
 Park on solid, level ground and
lower implement to ground or onto

 Put tractor in park or set park
brake, turn off engine, and remove
switch key to prevent unauthorized
starting.
 Relieve all hydraulic pressure to
auxiliary hydraulic lines.
 Wait for all components to stop
before leaving operator’s seat.
 Use steps, grab-handles and
anti-slip surfaces when stepping
on and off the tractor.
 Detach and store implement in an
area where children normally do
not play. Secure implement using
blocks and supports.

Tire Safety
Transport Safely
 Tire changing can be dangerous
and must be performed by
trained personnel using the
correct tools and equipment.
 Always maintain correct tire
pressure. Do not inflate tires
above recommended pressures
shown in the Operator’s Manual.
 When inflating tires, use a clip-on
chuck and extension hose long
enough to allow you to stand to
one side and NOT in front of or
over the tire assembly. Use a
safety cage if available.
 Securely support the implement
when changing a wheel.
 When removing and installing
wheels, use wheel handling
equipment adequate for the
weight involved.
 Make sure wheel bolts have been
tightened to the specified torque.
 Comply with federal, state, and
local laws.
 Use towing vehicle and trailer of
adequate size and capacity. Secure
equipment towed on a trailer with
tie downs and chains.
 Sudden braking can cause a towed
trailer to swerve and upset. Reduce
speed if towed trailer is not
equipped with brakes.
 Avoid contact with any overhead
utility lines or electrically charged
conductors.
 Always drive with load on end of
loader arms low to the ground.
 Always drive straight up and down
steep inclines with heavy end of a
tractor with loader attachment on
the “uphill” side.
Use A Safety Chain
Practice Safe Maintenance
 A safety chain will help control
drawn machinery should it
separate from the tractor drawbar.
 Use a chain with the strength
rating equal to or greater than the
gross weight of the towed
implement.
 Attach the chain to the tractor
drawbar support or other specified
anchor location. Allow only
enough slack in the chain to
permit turning.
 Always hitch the implement to the
machine towing it. Do not use the
safety chain tow the implement.
 Understand procedure before doing
work. Refer to the Operator’s
Manual for additional information.
 Work on a level surface in a clean
dry area that is well-lit.
 Lower implement to the ground and
follow all shutdown procedures
before leaving the operator’s seat to
perform maintenance.
 Do not work under any hydraulic
supported equipment. It can settle,
suddenly leak down, or be lowered
accidentally. If it is necessary to
work under the equipment, securely
support it with stands or suitable
blocking beforehand.
 Use properly grounded electrical
outlets and tools.
 Use correct tools and equipment for
the job that are in good condition.
 Allow equipment to cool before
working on it.
 Engage park brake when stopped
on an incline.
 Maximum transport speed for an
attached equipment is 20 mph. DO
NOT EXCEED. Never travel at a
speed which does not allow
adequate control of steering and
stopping. Some rough terrains
require a slower speed.
 As a guideline, use the following
maximum speed weight ratios for
attached equipment:
20 mph when weight of attached
equipment is less than or equal
to the weight of machine towing
the equipment.
10 mph when weight of attached
equipment exceeds weight of
machine towing equipment but
not more than double the weight.
 IMPORTANT: Do not tow a load
that is more than double the weight
of the vehicle towing the load.
 Disconnect battery ground cable (-)
before servicing or adjusting
electrical systems or before welding
on implement.
 Inspect all parts. Make certain
parts are in good condition &
installed properly.
 Replace parts on this implement
with genuine Land Pride parts only.
Do not alter this implement in a way
which will adversely affect its
performance.
 Do not grease or oil implement
while it is in operation.
 Remove buildup of grease, oil, or
debris.
 Always make sure any material and
waste products from the repair and
maintenance of the implement are
properly collected and disposed.
 Remove all tools and unused parts
before operation.
 Do not weld or torch on galvanized
metal as it will release toxic fumes.
11/27/18
Important Safety Information
Listed below are common practices that may or may not be applicable to the products
described in this manual.
Prepare for Emergencies
 Be prepared if a fire starts.
 Keep a first aid kit and fire
extinguisher handy.
 Keep emergency numbers for
doctor, ambulance, hospital, and
fire department near phone.
911
Wear Personal Protective
Equipment (PPE)
Avoid High
Pressure Fluids Hazard
 Wear protective clothing and
equipment appropriate for the job
such as safety shoes, safety
glasses, hard hat, and ear plugs.
 Clothing should fit snug without
fringes and pull strings to avoid
entanglement with moving parts.
 Prolonged exposure to loud noise
can cause hearing impairment or
hearing loss. Wear suitable
hearing protection such as
earmuffs or earplugs.
 Operating equipment safely
requires the operator’s full
attention. Avoid wearing
headphones while operating
equipment.
 Escaping fluid under pressure can
penetrate the skin causing serious
injury.
 Before disconnecting hydraulic
lines or performing work on the
hydraulic system, be sure to
release all residual pressure.
 Make sure all hydraulic fluid
connections are tight and all
hydraulic hoses and lines are in
good condition before applying
pressure to the system.
 Use a piece of paper or
cardboard, NOT BODY PARTS, to
check for suspected leaks.
 Wear protective gloves and safety
glasses or goggles when working
with hydraulic systems.
 DO NOT DELAY. If an accident
occurs, see a doctor familiar with
this type of injury immediately. Any
fluid injected into the skin or eyes
must be treated within
a few hours or
gangrene may
result.
Use Seat Belt and ROPS
Keep Riders Off
Machinery
Use Safety
Lights and Devices
 Slow moving tractors, skid steers,
self-propelled machines, and towed
equipment can create a hazard
when driven on public roads. They
are difficult to see, especially at
night. Use the Slow Moving Vehicle
sign (SMV) when on public roads.
 Flashing warning lights and turn
signals are recommended
whenever driving on public roads.
Avoid Underground
Utilities
 Dig Safe, Call 811 (USA).
Always contact your local utility
companies (electrical, telephone,
gas, water, sewer, and others)
before digging so that they may
mark the location of any
underground services in the area.
 Be sure to ask how close you can
work to the marks they positioned.
11/27/18
 Land Pride recommends the use
of a CAB or roll-over-protectivestructures (ROPS) and seat belt
in almost all power machines.
Combination of a CAB or ROPS
and seat belt will reduce the risk
of serious injury or death if the
power machine should be upset.
 If ROPS is in the locked-up
position, fasten seat belt snugly
and securely to help protect
against serious injury or death
from falling and machine overturn.
 Never carry riders on tractor or
implement.
 Riders obstruct operator’s view
and interfere with the control of
the power machine.
 Riders can be struck by objects or
thrown from the equipment.
 Never use tractor or implement to
lift or transport riders.

Safety First
! WARNING
To avoid serious injury or death:
• Do not allow anyone to go near the blade while grading and
operating the controls. A person can be crushed by the unit.
• Avoid injury from a falling blade. Always check to make
sure all hardware is secured before adjusting the blade.
• Never fully extend or retract hydraulic cylinder(s) without
first checking to make sure the implement does not make
contact with tractor tires. Extending implement into the
tractor tires can result in loss of control and damage to the
implement and/or tractor.
Blade Pitch
Blade pitch can be adjusted by lengthening or shortening
the tractor’s top center 3-Point link. Increasing blade pitch
will increase the blades digging ability.
Lengthen the center link to increase blade pitch when
grading while traveling forward. Shorten the center link to
decrease blade pitch.
The opposite is true if backfilling. Shorten center link to
increase blade pitch and lengthen center link to decrease
blade pitch. To help protect the 3-Way Rear Blade from
damage while backfilling, lengthen the tractor’s center
top link until the blade will move across the top of the
ground without forcing itself into the soil.
IMPORTANT: The implement must be hitched to a
tractor and raised off the ground several inches to

• Never carry riders on the implement or power machine.
Riders can obstruct the operator’s view, interfere with
control of the equipment, be pinched by moving
components, become entangled in rotating components, be
struck by objects, be thrown or fall from the equipment, etc.
• Never carry riders on the implement or power machine.
Riders can obstruct the operator’s view, interfere with
control of the equipment, be pinched by moving
components, become entangled in rotating components, be
struck by objects, be thrown or fall from the equipment, etc.
• Always shut tractor down using “Tractor Shutdown
Procedure” provided in this manual before allowing anyone
including the operator to hook-up and unhook implement.
• Hydraulic fluid under high pressure can penetrate the skin
and/or eyes causing a serious injury. Wear protective gloves
and safety glasses or goggles when working with hydraulic
systems. Use a piece of cardboard or wood rather than
hands when searching for leaks. A doctor familiar with this
type of injury must treat the injury within a few hours or
gangrene may result. DO NOT DELAY.
• Do not hitch implement to a tractor rated outside the
recommended horsepower range. Doing so can bend and/or
break the implement.
• Do not allow anyone to go near the blade while grading and
operating the controls. A person can be crushed by the unit.

Do not use implement to lift objects; to pull objects such as
fence posts, stumps, etc; or to push objects. The unit is not
designed or guarded for these uses.
Do not use implement to tow other equipment unless it is
designed with a tow hitch. Doing so can result in loss of
control and damage the equipment.
Operate only power machines equipped with a certified
Roll-Over Protective Structure (ROPS) and seat belt. Keep
folding ROPS in the “locked up” position when
appropriate. If ROPS is in the locked up position, fasten seat
belt snugly and securely to help protect against serious
injury or death from falling and machine overturn.
Never fully extend or retract hydraulic cylinder(s) without
first checking to make sure the implement does not make
contact with tractor tires. Extending implement into the
tractor tires can result in loss of control and damage to the
implement and/or tractor.
Make sure hydraulic hoses are properly routed so that they
will not become pinched or kinked while operating
equipment. A pinched or kinked hose can burst and leak
hydraulic fluid.
Avoid catching hydraulic hoses on brush, posts, tree limbs,
and other protrusions that could damage and/or break them.
Always dress to stay warm in cold weather. Never allow
body or extremities to become too cold. Use a cab to provide
protection against the cold. Go inside a heated area to
warm-up when getting too cold.
Be careful when working areas where obstructions can be
hidden. Always mark potential hazards with a visible flag.
Travel slowly through high risk areas and be prepared to
stop immediately should implement make contact with a
solid object.
Never operate hydraulic cylinder(s) with blade in the
ground or under load. Improper use can result in loss of
control and damage the Rear Blade. Always lift blade up
before operating hydraulic cylinder(s).
When using the park stand, make sure it is fully down with
wire retaining pin fully inserted and wire retainer over end
of pin. If not, the implement could fall.
Never work near utilities such as gas lines, electrical lines,
or other hazards that can cause serious injury or death from
electrocution, explosion, or fire.
Never make contact with underground utilities such as
electrical power lines, gas lines, phone lines, etc. They can
cause serious injury or death from electrocution, explosion,
or fire. If in doubt, call 811 (USA) before digging so that
they can mark the location of underground services in the
area. For contact information, see Dig Safe in the
“Important Safety Information” starting on page 1.
Inspection After Hook-Up
Make the following inspections after attaching the Rear
Blade to the tractor:
1.
18
Inspect tractor safety equipment to make sure it is in
good working condition.
RBT6010 & RBT6012 Rear Blades 301-360M
2. Carefully raise and lower the implement to ensure
that the drawbar, tires, and other equipment on the
tractor do not contact the frame and moldboard.
3. Carefully pivot blade fully clockwise and offset blade
to align end of moldboard with tractor tire. Raise and
lower implement to ensure tractor tire and tractor do
not contact end of blade.
4. Carefully pivot blade fully counterclockwise and
offset blade to align end of moldboard with tractor
tire. Raise and lower implement to ensure tractor tire
and tractor do not contact end of blade.
5. Inspect Hydraulic hoses for wear, damage and
hydraulic leaks. See “Avoid High Pressure Fluids
Hazard” on page 3 Replace damaged and worn
hoses with genuine Land Pride parts.
Transporting
! DANGER
To avoid serious injury or death:
Always keep a safe distance from obstructions. The implement
can extend beyond tractor tires and makes a wide swinging
pattern when turning. Never hit solid objects with implement
as this can damage property and cause tractor to pivot
violently resulting in loss of control.
! WARNING
To avoid serious injury or death:
• When traveling on public roadways, travel in such a way
that faster moving vehicles may pass safely. Use accessory
lights, clean reflectors, and a slow moving vehicle sign that
is visible from the back to warn operators in other vehicles
of your presence. Always comply with all federal, state, and
local laws.
• Make sure implement does not block tractor’s Slow Moving
Vehicle (SMV) sign when transporting on a public road. If
operators in vehicles approaching from the back cannot
easily see the sign, then install one on the implement that is
visible to warn of your presence.
• Transport with implement centered behind the tractor. An
implement offset to one side can extend beyond the tractor
tire which creates a a higher risk of hitting traffic and other
obstructions.
1. Do not operate a tractor that has weak or broken
brakes or worn tires.
2. When traveling on roadways:
• Transport with blade centered behind the tractor to
minimize blade overhang.
• Transport with blade facing forward so that the red
decals face back and amber decal face front.
• Transport in such a way that faster moving
vehicles may pass you safely.
• Slow down if traveling on a wet slick road.

Section 4: Operating Procedures
3. Shift to a lower gear when traveling over rough or hilly
terrain and when going downhill.
4. Leave enough clearance on both sides of the Rear
Blade when traveling straight and making turns to
keep blade from contacting obstacles such as
buildings, trees, or fences.
Rear Blade Functions
! WARNING
To avoid serious injury or death:
Never operate hydraulic cylinder(s) with blade in the ground
or under load. Improper use can result in loss of control and
damage the Rear Blade. Always lift blade up before operating
hydraulic cylinder(s).
IMPORTANT: The warranty shall not apply to
damage caused by misuse, abuse, or contact with
obstructions.
Grading
Place grade stakes if you intend to develop a specific
grade or soil level. Pivot moldboard to the desired angle,
lower blade to the ground and set tractor’s draft-link
height control to the desired position. Proceed forward at
a speed of no more than 2 to 4 mph. The blade should
immediately begin shaving the surface. A blade full of
material can be raised slightly so that material can flow
out evenly under the blade to effectively shave off high
spots and fill in potholes and depressions. Loose soil can
be smoothed out by pushing the soil with the back of the
moldboard while backing-up.
If a dual gauge wheels is included, set tractor’s draft-link
height control to the maximum preferred cutting depth.
Raise and lower blade with the dual gauge wheel.
Edge work
Material close to fences, buildings, and other
obstructions can be graded by offsetting the moldboard
to the right or left beyond the tractor tire. Always make
certain end of blade is offset far enough to be visible to
the operator. Always keep a safe distance away from
obstructions, drive slowly when passing by them and stay
clear of them when turning. Always be aware that the
blade will make a wide swinging pattern in a turn and
always be ready to stop immediately to keep from hitting
an obstruction. Never hit an obstruction as this can
damage the blade and/or obstruction.
Ditch Work
The Rear Blade is good for making V-type ditches. Tilt
one end of moldboard down to desired ditching angle.
Offset that end to be in line with tractor’s rear tire and
pivot opposite end of moldboard back. The combined
angles, pivot, and offset, should be between 45o and 60o.
11/27/18
Operate tractor at slow speeds when cleaning a ditch or
removing snow. Be careful not to hit hidden solid objects
that can damage the Rear Blade. Always be ready to stop
immediately. Remember, the lighter the blade load, the
easier it is for the tractor to damage the blade.
Fill ditches by offsetting the blade beyond the tractor
wheel to keep the tractor out of the ditch. Angle blade to
move dirt towards and into the ditch while traveling
forward. Set blade depth as needed (see “Grading”
instructions on this page when setting blade depth).
Backfilling
Backfilling is a process where the operator turns the
blade around 180o and pushes product while backing-up.
Be careful not to overstress the blade while backfilling as
load forces on the blade and frame increase when
backing up. To help protect the blade from damage,
lengthen tractor’s top center link until the blade will move
across the top of the ground without forcing itself into the
ground.
Adjust offset to be straight behind the tractor and set
blade angle at 90o (perpendicular to the Mainframe).
Keep load in the center of the blade and not on the end of
the blade. Don’t ram load with the blade and always
operate at slow speeds when backing-up. Be ready to
stop immediately if a solid object is hit.
Removing snow while backing-up is especially
dangerous as snow can hide solid objects and there is a
tendency to drive too fast to get the snow removal job
done. High speeds multiply forces exerted on the Rear
Blade.
Unhook 3-Way Rear Blade
! WARNING
To avoid serious injury or death:
When using the park stand, make sure it is fully down with wire
retaining pin fully inserted and wire retainer over end of pin.
If not, the implement could fall.
Unhook 3-Way Rear Blade from the tractor as follows:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
Park on a level solid hard surface. Place tractor gear
selector in park and set park brake.
Lower park jack and secure with hitch pin.
Lower blade and park jack onto level ground or onto
blocks supporting the unit just above ground.
Shut tractor engine off and remove key.
Move hydraulic control levers back and forth several
times to reliever hydraulic pressure in the lines and at
the couplings.
Unhook couplings and store in notched slots on the
hitch frame.
If necessary, adjust length of upper center 3-Point
link until the hitch pin can be removed from the hitch
frame.

Dig Safe, Call 811. Contact your local utility
companies (electrical, telephone, gas, water, sewer,
and others) before digging so that they may mark the
location of any underground services in the area.
Thoroughly inspect work area for sprinkler heads,
and any other unforeseen objects that may be a
hazard. Remove all potential hazards and mark any
that cannot be removed.
Place grade stakes if you intend to develop a specific
grade or soil level.
Adjust blade to the desired angle, tilt, and offset
position before lowering blade to the ground.
Lower blade to the ground and proceed forward at a
speed of no more than 2 to 4 mph. The blade should
immediately begin shaving the soil surface.
Set tractor’s draft-link height control lever to the
desired grade position. If blade is set at a 90 degree
angle to the direction of travel, it may be necessary to
raise the blade slightly so that dirt and gravel can flow
out evenly under the blade as it shaves off high spots
and fills in potholes or depressions.
General Operating Instructions
Once you have familiarized yourself with the Operator’s
Manual, completed the operations checklist, and
properly attached your Land Pride Rear Blade to your
tractor, you are now almost ready to begin work.
Hopefully you have checked out your work site for any
buried utility cables, pipelines, sprinkler heads, or other
obstacles that you wouldn’t want to damage or
encounter. Grade stakes should now be in place if you
intend to develop a specific grade, elevation, soil contour,
or roadbed crown. The primary purpose of the RBT60
Series Rear Blades is for grading or leveling soil, gravel,
or aggregate in the warmer months and snow removal in
the colder months. These functions are best done at an
approximate 2 to 4 mph ground speed. Becoming
proficient with a Rear Blade takes practice.
20
RBT6010 & RBT6012 Rear Blades 301-360M
Tractor horsepower, your personal skill level, soil or
aggregate composition, moisture levels, and compaction
factors will all have a definite impact on how easily and
effectively you get the job done when you are in the dirt
working mode. Develop a plan to achieve your expected
results. Set the blade up at the proper angle or angles to
do the job. The hydraulic angling, tilt, and offset
capabilities of the RBT60 Series will make these
adjustments easy utilizing the tractors remote hydraulic
controls. This may require some experimentation to
achieve the desired results. Lower the blade to the
ground and proceed forward at a speed of no more than
2 to 4 mph. The blade should immediately begin shaving
the soil surface and dirt or aggregate material. Set the
tractor’s draft-link height control in the desired position.
With the blade set at a 90 degree angle you may need to
raise the blade slightly so that the dirt or gravel can flow
out evenly under the blade effectively shaving off high
spots and filling in potholes or depressions.
If you have the blade set at a horizontal angle, the shaved
or accumulated material will begin to move outward
toward the trailing edge of the blade. The greater the
angle the more quickly the shaved material will be
distributed off to the side. If it is necessary to work up next
to a building foundation, abutment, or raised curb you
may want to offset the blade so that the outside edge of
the blade is beyond the outer edge of the tractor tire in
working position. Backfilling operations may be more
easily performed by reversing the blade and operating
the tractor in reverse or commonly called the push mode.
Be careful not to overstress the rear blade while
backfilling as load forces on the blade and frame
increase while backing up.
If you are performing the construction of soil contours or
waterways you will probably need to set a tilt angle on the
blade to achieve the desired effect. If you are grading or
cutting a new ditch bank or forming a road crown, you will
probably want to offset the blade in combination with
setting an appropriate tilt angle. This again will likely
require some experimentation to gain desired results.
Snow removal techniques with a blade will be very similar
to dirt working techniques and will require a little
experimentation to become proficient.
With a little practice you should become a very good
operator and consistently achieve the desired results you
expect with your Land Pride RBT60 Series Rear Blade.
See “Specifications” & “Capacities” on page 29 and
“Features and Benefits” on page 29 for additional
information and performance enhancing options.

Maintenance
Long-Term Storage
Proper servicing and adjustment is the key to the long life
of any implement. With careful inspection and routine
maintenance, you can avoid costly downtime and repair.
Clean, inspect, service, and make necessary repairs to
the implement when storing it for long periods and at the
end of the season. This will help to ensure the unit is
ready for field use the next time you hook-up to it.
After using the 3-Way Rear Blade for several hours,
check all bolts to be sure they are tight. Replace any
worn, damaged or illegible safety labels by obtaining new
labels from your Land Pride dealer
The parts on your 3-Way Rear Blade have been specially
designed and should only be replaced with genuine Land
Pride parts. Do not alter the blade in a way which will
adversely affect its performance.
! DANGER
To avoid serious injury or death:
• Always check all blade hardware for tightness before
moving or working around the unit. Make sure moldboard
pivot and tilt retaining hardware is tightened to the correct
torque. The moldboard can fall from the its pivot mount or
tilt mount if retaining hardware is loose or missing.
•
Always secure equipment with solid, non-concrete supports
before working under it. Never go under equipment
supported by concrete blocks or hydraulics. Concrete can
break, hydraulic lines can burst, and/or hydraulic controls
can be actuated even when power to hydraulics is off.
! WARNING
To avoid serious injury or death:
• Do not alter implement or replace parts on the implement
with other brands. Other brands may not fit properly or
meet OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer)
specifications. They can weaken the integrity and impair the
safety, function, performance, and life of the implement.
Replace parts only with genuine OEM parts.
• Hydraulic fluid under high pressure can penetrate the skin
and/or eyes causing a serious injury. Wear protective gloves
and safety glasses or goggles when working with hydraulic
systems. Use a piece of cardboard or wood rather than
hands when searching for leaks. A doctor familiar with this
type of injury must treat the injury within a few hours or
gangrene may result. DO NOT DELAY.
• Always shut tractor down using “Tractor Shutdown
Procedure” provided in this manual before allowing anyone
including the operator to hook-up and unhook implement.
Tractor Maintenance
One of the most important things you can do to prevent
hydraulic system problems is ensure that your tractor's
reservoir remains free of dirt and contamination.
Use a clean cloth to wipe hose ends before attaching
them to your tractor. Replace your tractor’s hydraulic filter
element at the prescribed intervals. These simple
maintenances will go a long way to prevent occurrence of
control valve and hydraulic cylinder problems.
11/27/18
! WARNING
To avoid serious injury or death:
Always shut tractor down using “Tractor Shutdown
Procedure” provided in this manual before allowing anyone
including the operator to hook-up and unhook implement.
1.
Clean off any dirt and grease that may have
accumulated on the Rear Blade and then wash
surfaces thoroughly with a garden hose.
2. Inspect for loose, damaged or worn parts, and
hardware. Adjust or replace parts as needed with
genuine Land Pride Parts.
3. Repaint parts where paint is worn or scratched to
prevent rust. Ask your dealer for Aerosol Land Pride
