installed.
1. Follow the instructions referring to attaching the
aerator to the tractor or towing vehicle.
2. Start at the outside casting and install the tines
as shown. Install all 8 tines on the casting making
sure the roll pin is in the front position (Fig. 1). Use
1/2" x 1-3/4" bolts for the second hole and secure

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
AERATING PROCEDURE FOR 686 TOW
HITCH AERATOR
1. Move the lock pin to the rear (aerating)
position. See Fig. 2.
2. Open the hydraulic hand pump bleed valve on
base of pump to release pressure and lower the
aerator to the ground.
3. Return to the operator's seat and follow the
vehicle instructions and procedures for towing an
implement.
4. At the end of desired aerating region, stop the
tractor and set the parking brake, turn off engine,
before getting out of operators seat.
5. Close the hydraulic hand pump bleed valve
and stroke pump handle to raise the aerator to
the transport position.
6. When transporting the Aerator 686, place the
lock pin in the front hole. This prevents the aerator
from dropping in case of accidental release of oil in
the lift cylinder. See Fig. 2.
AERATING PROCEDURE FOR 687 3 POINT
HITCH AERATOR
Become familiar with the controls for 3 Point or
Remote Hydraulics operation of the Tow Tractor or
vehicle before operating Aerator 687.
1. Start tractor engine and run at a low RPM.
2. With 3 Point or Remote Hydraulics Control of
tractor, slowly lower the aerator while the tractor or
towing vehicie is moving slowly forward.
3. As aerating begins increase speed of the tractor
or towing vehicle.
4. Raise the aerator at the end of the pass before
turning.

LUBRICATION
BEARINGS (Fig. 3)
The aerator has six self sealing bearings that must
be lubricated with a No. 2 Lithium based grease.
IMPORTANT: Lubricate the bearings as often
as necessary to maintain a slight leakage on
the seals. Too much grease can cause
overheating.
GREASE FITTINGS AND WHEEL BEARINGS-
AERATOR 686 (Fig. 3)
Grease fittings weekly or every 40 operating hours.
Use a No. 2 Lithium based grease.
GREASE FITTINGS- AERATOR 687
(Not Shown)
1. Grease the grease fittings weekly or every 40
operating hours. Use a No. 2 Lithium based
grease.
Figure 3
MAINTENANCE
MAIN ARMS (Fig. 4)
The 6 main arms pivot freely horizontally and
vertically to allow the unit to follow the contour of
the ground. À bronze bushing is pressed inside the
pivot holes between the main arm and mainframe.
The bronze bushing is 1/8" longer than the
thickness of both plates combined. The 5/8 x 2"
bolt should be tightened against the bushings, not
the arms, to allow it to pivot freely. The bronze
bushings should be checked every 100 hours of
operation for signs of wear. Replace any worn
bushings.
SPRINGS (Fig. 4)
The purpose of the springs is to distribute the
weight evenly and reduce the shock load on the
pivot points. The springs are adjusted evenly
across to level the unit. Use the nuts on top of the
spring rod (Item A) to adjust the springs.
IMPORTANT: NEVER adjust the spring so the
coils are completely compressed. Aflow at
least 1/16" between coils.

MAINTENANCE (Continued)
TINE WEAR (Fig. 5)
To obtain maximum aerating performance always
check the tines for wear before every use.
Severely worn tines are easy to bend or break and
will leave the cores in the ground. See Fig. 5 for
examples of tine wear.
Always clean cores out of tines before storage.
Cores left in tines for extended periods can cause
pitting on the inside of the tine. The pits in the tine
keep the core from ejecting.
