Important Safety Information
Listed below are common practices that may or may not be applicable to the products
described in this manual.
Dig Safe - Avoid
Underground Utilities
 USA: Call 811
CAN: digsafecanada.ca
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.
2
Transport Safely
 Comply with federal, state, and local
laws.
 Use towing vehicle and trailer of
adequate size and capacity. Secure
equipment towed on a trailer with
chocks, 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 skid
steer on the “uphill” side.
Tire Safety
Practice Safe Maintenance
 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 attachment
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.
 Understand procedure before doing

 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 equipment.
 Inspect all parts. Make certain parts
are in good condition & installed
properly.
 Replace parts on this attachment
with genuine Kubota parts only. Do
not alter this attachment in a way
which will adversely affect its
performance.
 Do not grease or oil attachment
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 attachment are
properly collected and disposed.
 Remove all tools and unused parts
from the equipment before
operation.
9/3/19
Important Safety Information
These 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.
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.
 Relieve all residual pressure
before disconnecting hydraulic
lines or performing work on the
hydraulic system.
 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
911
Use Safety
Lights and Devices
 Slow moving tractors, skid steers,
and self-propelled machines can
create a hazard when driven on
public roads. They are difficult to
see, especially at night. Use the
Slow Moving Vehicle (SMV) sign
when on public roads.
 Flashing warning lights and turn
signals are recommended
whenever driving on public roads.
9/3/19
 Kubota 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 skid steer
or attachment.
 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 skid steer or
attachment to lift or transport
riders.

Important Safety Information
Listed below are common practices that may or may not be applicable to the products
described in this manual.
Avoid crystalline Silica
(quartz) Dust
Because crystalline silica is a basic
component of sand and granite,
many activities at construction sites
produce dust containing crystalline
silica. Trenching, sawing, and boring
of material containing crystalline
silica can produce dust containing
crystalline silica particles. This dust
can cause serious injury to the
lungs (silicosis).
There are guidelines which should
be followed if crystalline silica
(quartz) is present in the dust.
 Be aware of and follow OSHA
(or other local, State, or Federal)
guidelines for exposure to airborne
crystalline silica.
 Know the work operations where
exposure to crystalline silica may
occur.
 Participate in air monitoring or
training programs offered by the
employer.
 Be aware of and use optional
equipment controls such as water
sprays, local exhaust ventilation,
and enclosed cabs with positive
pressure air conditioning if the
machine has such equipment.
Otherwise respirators shall be worn.
 Where respirators are required, wear
a respirator approved for protection
against crystalline silica containing
dust. Do not alter respirator in any
way. Workers who use tight-fitting
respirators can not have beards/
mustaches which interfere with the
respirator seal to the face.
 If possible, change into disposable
or washable work clothes at the
work site; shower and change into
clean clothing before leaving the
work site.
 Do not eat, drink, use tobacco
products, or apply cosmetics in
areas where there is dust containing
crystalline silica.
 Store food, drink, and personal
belongings away from the work
area.
 Wash hands and face before eating,
drinking, smoking, or applying
cosmetics after leaving the exposure
area.
Handle
Chemicals Properly
 Protective clothing should be
worn.
 Handle all chemicals with care.
 Follow instructions on container
label.
 Agricultural chemicals can be
dangerous. Improper use can
seriously injure persons, animals,
plants, soil, and property.
 Inhaling smoke from any type of
chemical fire can be a serious
health hazard.
 Store or dispose of unused
chemicals as specified by the
chemical manufacturer.

! DANGER
To avoid serious injury or death:
A crushing hazard exists while hooking-up and unhooking the
attachment. Do not allow anyone to stand between attachment
and power machine while approaching or backing away from
the attachment. Do not operate lift and/or tilt controls while
someone is near the power machine and/or attachment.
! WARNING
To avoid serious injury or death:
• Check hitch fit-up frequently. An improper fit-up can cause
the attachment to come loose from the loader hitch plate
and fall.
• Use steps, grab-handles, and anti-slip surfaces on the
power machine and attachment to get on and off the power
machine. Using unapproved stepping surfaces and/or
handholds can result in a falling hazard.
1. Check skid steer and Hopper Broom hitch plates
before hooking-up the broom. Make sure all hitch
components are in good working condition:
a. Check for and remove any debris in the loader
and broom hitch plates.
b. Check hitch plates for structural cracks and bent
or broken pieces. They can weaken a hitch plate
and prevent full and complete hook-up. Repair or
replace damaged hitch plates.
c. Check operation of lock pins in the loader hitch
plate. Lock pins must move freely and extend fully
into the bottom slots in the broom hitch plate.
d. Check hydraulic hoses for pinch points and
clearances. Make sure hoses (#1, #2, & #3) will
not interfere with hitch hook-up.
2. If lock mechanism is mechanical, raise lock handles
on the loader hitch fully up.
3. Start skid steer.
4. If lock mechanism is hydraulic, use auxiliary
hydraulic controls to raise lock pins fully up.
5. Drive slowly to the broom hitch plate while making
sure the loader hitch is parallel with the top angle
bars on the broom hitch plate.
6. Tilt top of loader hitch plate slightly forward.
7. Place top of loader hitch plate under the Hopper
Broom top angled bars and slowly raise loader arms
up until loader hitch plate is seated under the top

Hydraulic Hose Hook-Up
! WARNING
To avoid serious injury or death:
• 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.
• Shut power machine down and release all hydraulic
pressure to the equipment before connecting or
disconnecting hydraulic hoses to or from the power
machine.
• Make sure hydraulic flow to the Hopper Broom does not
exceed maximum rated flow listed in the skid steer

Refer to Figure 3-1:
Use steps, grab-handles, and anti-slip surfaces on the
power machine and attachment to get on and off the power
machine. Using unapproved stepping surfaces and/or
handholds can result in a falling hazard.
Operate only power machines equipped with a certified
Roll-Over Protective Structure (ROPS) and seat belt.
Fasten seat belt snugly and securely to help protect against
serious injury or death from machine overturn.
Never carry riders on the attachment or power machine.
Riders can obstruct the operator’s view, interfere with
controls, be pinched by moving components, become
entangled in rotating components, struck by objects, thrown
about, fall off and be run over, etc.
Always shut power machine down using the “Shutdown
Procedure” provided in this manual before servicing,
adjusting, cleaning, or maintaining the attachment.
Always operate attachment while seated with seat belt
properly fastened around the operator. When equipped,
always lower seat/lap bar(s). This will help protect the
operator against rollovers and sudden stops.
Operate broom from inside an enclosed cab or wear a dust
mask and eye protection. Flying dust, debris and bristles
can enter the lungs causing respiratory problems, enter the
eyes causing eye injury and /or cause bodily injury to the
body of people or animals.
Avoid hitting solid objects with this attachment. Solid
objects can damage equipment and throw operator forward
causing loss of control, bodily injury, or death. Always wear
the seat belt.
The Hopper Broom is designed primarily for picking up
light dirt and small aggregate such as pea gravel. Do not
use the broom to remove soil, heavy materials, rocks, or
similar items.
Keep flying debris to a minimum. Always operate broom at
slowest rotating speed that will do the job.
Sweep areas with traffic during low-traffic hours.
Do not sweep debris towards people, animals, buildings, or
other objects that can be hurt or damaged by thrown
projectiles.
Be aware of the extra weight and width the Hopper Broom
adds to the skid steer. Reduce speed accordingly. Avoid
traveling too fast over rough terrain that will bounce the
broom causing loss of control.

Do not travel at high speeds while sweeping. High speeds
can result in sudden loss of control leading to damaged
property, equipment, and bodily harm.
Backup alarm must be in good working order to warn
others. Use a backup camera or rear-view mirror that is in
good condition to help see undesirable situations behind the
unit. Drive at a slower speed to compensate for blind spots.
Perform scheduled maintenance. Check for loose
hardware, missing parts, broken parts, structural cracks,
and excessive wear. Make repairs before putting the
attachment back into service. Serious breakdowns can
result in injury or death.
Do not alter attachment or replace parts on the attachment
with other brands. Other brands may not fit properly or
meet OEM specifications. They can weaken the integrity
and impair the safety, function, performance, and life of the
attachment. Replace parts only with genuine OEM parts.
Never adjust skid steer relief valve for a pressure rating
higher than what is recommended by the skid steer
manufacturer.
Make sure hydraulic hoses are properly routed without
twists to prevent becoming stretched, pinched, or kinked. A
damaged hydraulic hose can burst and leak hydraulic fluid.
Hydraulic fluid and components that the fluid flows through
such as couplers, hoses, hydraulic lines, fittings and motor
become hot from use. Be careful when connecting and
disconnecting couplers. It is best to allow hydraulic fluid
and hydraulic components to cool before touching them.
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.
Avoid exposure to dust containing crystalline silica
particles. This dust can cause serious injury to the lungs
(silicosis). Because crystalline silica is a basic component
of sand and granite, many activities at construction sites
produce dust containing crystalline silica. Trenching,
sawing, and boring of material containing crystalline silica
can produce dust containing crystalline silica.
Dress properly for the job. Do not wear loose fitting
clothing or clothing with pull strings. Keep long hair tucked
in. Clothing and hair can become entangled in rotating
components. Wear footwear that will improve footing on
slippery surfaces.
Keep body, body extremities, loose clothing, pull strings,
etc. away from pinch points such as rotating, extending,
and/or retracting components. Secure pinch point areas to
ensure they will not move before working on or near them.
Wear eye protection and gloves while inspecting, removing,
replacing and working around the wafers. Poly and
especially wire bristles can suddenly poke the hands or
eyes.

Do not use attachment to lift, carry, push or tow other
equipment or objects. It is not properly designed or guarded
for this use. The operator could lose control resulting in
equipment damage and/or tipping hazard.
Do not use attachment as a lifting device for people or as a
work platform. It is not properly designed or guarded for
this use.
Do not use attachment to lift the front or back of the power
machine off the ground. Doing so can damage the
attachment, power machine, and/or cause serious injury or
death.
Check hitch fit-up frequently. An improper fit-up can cause
the attachment to come loose from the loader hitch plate
and fall.
Make sure safety labels are in their proper location and are
in good condition before operating the attached implement.
Read and obey all instructions on the labels.
IMPORTANT: Remove all property from the area
that can be damaged by flying debris and bristles.
IMPORTANT: Collect and dispose all oil spills and
leaks in an environmentally safe manner.
Transport Safety
! DANGER
To avoid serious injury or death:
Keep attachment and/or loader arms away from overhead
electrical power lines. Place an orange warning sign under
overhead lines indicating type of danger above.
! WARNING
To avoid serious injury or death:
• Always exercise safety, courtesy, and common sense. Be
aware of pedestrian and vehicle traffic. Check blind spots
before moving equipment.
• 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.
•
•
•
Always transport with attachment carried low to protect
against rollover, hitting overhead objects, power lines, and
loss of control.
Reduce ground speed when turning and leave enough
clearance to avoid making contact with obstacles such as
buildings, trees, fences, etc. Making contact can result in
equipment damage and cause serious injury or death.
Select a safe ground speed when transporting. Never travel
at a speed which does not allow adequate control of
steering and stopping, and never exceed 20 mph (32.2 km/
h) with attached equipment. Rough terrain requires a
slower speed.

b. Check hitch plates for structural cracks and bent
or broken pieces. They can weaken a hitch plate
and prevent full and complete hook-up. Repair or
replace damaged hitch plates.
c. Check operation of lock pins in the loader hitch
plate. Lock pins must move freely and extend fully
into the bottom slots in the broom hitch plate.
d. Check hydraulic hoses for pinch points and
clearances. Make sure hydraulic hoses will not
interfere with hitch hook-up.
Consult your skid steer Operator’s Manual to
determine if rear ballast is required. Add ballast if
necessary.
Visually check for excessive wear, worn, damaged,
cracked, or loose parts. Replace parts with genuine
Kubota parts.
Inspect condition of hydraulic hoses, fittings, and
valves before starting the skid steer. Make sure
hoses are not twisted or frayed and will not get
pinched, kinked, or stretched.
Start skid steer and check hydraulic oil leaks with a
piece of paper or cardboard. Do not use your hands
as invisible thin streams of high pressure oil can be
injected into your skin. See “Avoid High Pressure
Fluids Hazard” on page 3.
Check all controls and operating functions of the skid
steer.
Operate the Hopper Broom through its full range of
movements to check for clearances. Refer to “Check
Equipment Clearances” on this page.
AP-HB74 & AP-HB84 Hopper Broom 323-161MK
Check Equipment Clearances
It is important to check equipment clearances and
hydraulic hose routing before putting the Hopper Broom
into operation. Carefully go through the broom’s full
range of motions to make sure the broom does not make
contact with the skid steer frame, tires, and hydraulic
hoses. Check hydraulic hoses to make sure they do not
stretch, kink, or pinch.
! WARNING
To avoid serious injury or death:
• Use steps, grab-handles, and anti-slip surfaces on the
power machine and attachment to get on and off the power
machine. Using unapproved stepping surfaces and/or
handholds can result in a falling hazard.
• Check hitch fit-up frequently. An improper fit-up can cause
the attachment to come loose from the loader hitch plate

b. Make sure loader hitch plate is against the
Hopper Broom hitch plate.
c. Make sure lock handles or hydraulic locks are
locked with lock pins fully seated in the bottom
slots.
d. Make sure there are no structural cracks in the
hitch plates. Structural cracks weaken the hitch
plate and can result in dropping the attachment.
e. Make sure there are no bent plates preventing full
and complete hook-up to the loader hitch plate.
2. If necessary, have someone stand nearby but at a
safe distance that can motion for the operator to stop
if a problem develops.
3. With the Hopper Broom on the ground, start skid
steer and carefully rotate the top of the loader hitch
plate fully back while watching hydraulic hoses to
make sure they do not become pinched or kinked.

operating the Hopper Broom:
• Broom Rotation
• Broom Height
• Gutter Broom Rotation
• Gutter Broom Height
Broom Rotation
1.
Raise broom off the ground and engage hydraulic
auxiliary to the motor. For detailed engagement
instructions, see the Skid Steer Operator’s Manual.
Viewing from the motor end, the broom should:
• Rotate clockwise if sweeping while traveling
forward.
• Rotate counterclockwise if sweeping while
traveling backward.
2. If broom rotates clockwise, skip to “Broom Height”
below. Otherwise, continue with steps below.
3. Shut skid steer down before dismounting. Follow
“Skid Steer Shutdown Procedure” on page 13.
Refer to Figure 2-3 on page 17:
4. Disconnect hydraulic hoses (#2 & #3) from the skid
steer.

hoses (#2 & #3).
6. Reconnect hydraulic hoses (#2 & #3) to the skid
steer.
Gutter Broom Rotation
1.
Looking down from the top, the gutter broom should:
• Rotate counterclockwise (sweep dirt to the left)
when mounted on the right side of the broom.
• Rotate clockwise (sweep dirt to the right) when
mounted on the left side of the broom.
• Shut-off hydraulics to the gutter broom and raise
gutter broom up when sweeping while traveling
backward.
2. If gutter broom rotates correctly, skip to “Gutter
Broom Height” below. Otherwise, continue with
steps below.
3. Shut skid steer down before dismounting. Follow
“Skid Steer Shutdown Procedure” on page 13.
Refer to Figure 4-2 on page 26:
4. Disconnect hoses (#6 & #7) from ports (M3 & M4)
and reconnect hoses to the opposite ports. For
detailed instructions, see “Gutter Broom Location”
on page 26.
Gutter Broom Height
1.
Make sure only the gutter broom bristle tips are
making contact with the ground. If the gutter broom is
riding on the bristle and not the tips, then the gutter
broom is too low. Refer to “Gutter Broom Height
Adjustment” on page 27
Broom Height
1.
Drive the skid steer up to an uncleaned surface and
stop. Engage hydraulic auxiliary to start the broom
rotating. Lower broom down onto an unclean surface
for 5 to 10 seconds and then raise the broom back up.
2. Back the skid steer up until able to view the sweeping
pattern made by the broom and then stop.
3. Shut skid steer down before dismounting. Follow
“Skid Steer Shutdown Procedure” on page 13.
4. Inspect the pattern made by the broom on the
unclean surface. The broom should have sweep a
pattern on the ground 2" to 4" (5 to 10 cm) wide. If the
pattern is less than 2" (5 cm) or wider than 4"(10 cm),
adjust broom height. Refer to “Broom Height
Adjustment” on page 25.

Section 3: Operating Instructions
Broom Operation
IMPORTANT: Do not reverse broom rotation while
the broom is rotating. Doing so, can damage the
broom and drive components.
The broom is designed to primarily sweep traveling
forward throwing debris away from the operator.
However, it can be operated while traveling backward.
To reverse travel direction, come to a complete stop, shut
hydraulics to the broom off, wait for the broom to stop
rotating, engage hydraulic auxiliary to rotate the broom in
the opposite direction, and start sweeping traveling the
opposite direction.
If attachment is to be operated in reverse, make sure
visibility to the rear of the power unit is appropriate for the
attachment. Backup camera or mirror is recommended.
Maintain cleanliness of lens or mirror.
Never exceed maximum hydraulic operating pressure of
3500 psi. Engage broom hydraulics, lower broom down to
its adjusted height and start traveling sweeping debris
into the bucket. When traveling forward sweep debris
over the top of the broom and into the bucket. When
traveling backward, sweep debris under the broom and
over the bucket’s cutting edge.
Try to always sweep with the wind behind you to cause
the wind to carry airborne dust and debris away from you.
Reduce speed when sweeping over rough terrain to
minimize bounce. Bouncing can cause equipment
breakage and loss of control.
When broom sweeping becomes ineffective, stop and
adjust the broom down. Refer to “Broom Height
Adjustment” on page 25. Replace broom when it is worn
out. Refer to “Broom Removal” on page 29.
Gutter Broom Operation
Dispose of Sweepings
When the Hopper Broom bucket is full of sweepings,
disengage hydraulics to the motor, raise Hopper Broom
off the ground approximately 6" to 12" (15 to 30 cm),
travel to the dump site, and stop in front of the dump site.
If dumping into a collection container, raise Hopper
Broom above the container and slowly travel forward until
the bucket is over the container. Tilt the top of the hitch
plate forward while raising the loader arms to keep the
Hopper from pressing down against the accumulated
waste pile. If the Hopper Broom starts to come against
the container’s side wall, move the skid steer forward.
Continue tilting the top of the hitch forward as needed
until all waste debris has exited out of the Hopper Broom
bucket.
Tilt top of hitch plate back to level the Hopper Broom,
back away from the container until Hopper Broom is
outside the container, lower Hopper Broom until it is
6" to 12" (15 to 30 cm) above the ground, and travel back
to the work site.
Optional Spray System Operation
Shut-off the ball valve and fill the water tank with clean
water. Replace tank cap once the tank is filled.
Turn on the ball valve and temporarily switch the water
pump on to verify if the water system works properly. Shut
water pump off and shut down the skid steer. Follow skid
steer “Skid Steer Shutdown Procedure” on page 13.
Close ball valve when not in use. Water can siphon out of
the tank if ball valve is left open.
If the spray system is not functioning properly, refer to:
• “Water Filter Maintenance” on page 34.
• “Spray Nozzle Maintenance” on page 34.
• “Troubleshooting Chart” on page 41.
The gutter broom allows the operator to sweep close to
vertical surfaces and discharge debris into the main
broom. It adds an additional 12" (30 cm) to the sweeping
width. Use the gutter broom only while traveling forward.
Increase gutter broom speed if sweeping light material
and decrease gutter broom speed if sweeping heavier,
dense materials. Shut off hydraulics to the gutter broom
when not in use or when sweeping while backing-up. For
instructions, refer to “Gutter Broom Speed” on page 27.
Do not remove the gutter broom from the Hopper Broom.
To discontinue use of the gutter broom, shut hydraulics
off to the gutter broom and lift the broom up 2-4 inches
with the adjustment chain. Refer to “Gutter Broom
Height Adjustment” on page 27.

• Always shut power machine down using the “Shutdown
Procedure” provided in this manual before servicing,
adjusting, cleaning, or maintaining the attachment.
•
•
•
•
Perform scheduled maintenance. Check for loose
hardware, missing parts, broken parts, structural cracks,
and excessive wear. Make repairs before putting the
attachment back into service. Serious breakdowns can
result in injury or death.
Backup alarm must be in good working order to warn
others. Use a backup camera or rear-view mirror that is in
good condition to help see undesirable situations behind the
unit. Drive at a slower speed to compensate for blind spots.
Do not alter attachment or replace parts on the attachment
with other brands. Other brands may not fit properly or
meet OEM specifications. They can weaken the integrity
and impair the safety, function, performance, and life of the
attachment. Replace parts only with genuine OEM parts.
Lubricate, make adjustments and repairs in a safe area
away from traffic and other hazards.
Hydraulic fluid heats up when the skid steer is operating.
This can cause hydraulic hoses, fittings, and couplers to
become hot. Wear gloves when working with hydraulic
components and when connecting and disconnecting
hydraulic couplers.
Avoid electrical shock. Disconnect water pump electrical
terminals from the battery before servicing the water pump,
electrical wiring for the pump, and its switch box.
Check hitch fit-up frequently. An improper fit-up can cause
the attachment to come loose from the loader hitch plate
and fall.

Long-Term Storage
Clean, inspect, service, and make necessary repairs to
the attachment when storing it for long periods and at the
end of the season. This will help ensure the unit is ready
for field use the next time you hook-up to it.
! DANGER
To avoid serious injury or death:
• 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.
6. Replace all damaged or missing decals.
7. A coating of oil may also be applied to the lower
cutting edge area to minimize oxidation while in
storage.
8. To protect against seizing, lubricate moving parts as
noted in “Lubrication Points” on page 37.
9. Store Hopper Broom on a level surface in a clean, dry
place. Inside storage will reduce maintenance and
make for a longer life.
10. Follow all unhooking instructions on page 13 when
disconnecting the skid steer from the Hopper Broom.
! WARNING
To avoid serious injury or death:
• Do not alter attachment or replace parts on the attachment
with other brands. Other brands may not fit properly or
meet OEM specifications. They can weaken the integrity
and impair the safety, function, performance, and life of the
attachment. Replace parts only with genuine OEM parts.
1. Clean off any dirt and grease that may have
accumulated on the Hopper Broom and moving
parts. Scrape off compacted dirt and then wash
surface thoroughly with a garden hose.
2. Drain the spray system of water if storing the Hopper
Broom for the winter. Refer to “Winterize Hopper
Broom” on page 35.
3. Check dust skirt, broom, gutter broom, and cutting
edge for wear and replace as needed.
4. Inspect for loose, damaged or worn parts and adjust
or replace as needed.
5. Repaint parts where paint is worn or scratched to
prevent rust. Ask your Kubota dealer for touch-up
paint. Paint is available in aerosol can, quarts, and
gallon sizes. See chart below.
