Game animal protection

56

EQ003-725

When mowing from “outside to inside”, the animals are slowly forced from the safe boundary area into the centre of the area, which makes the possibility for a life-saving escape for the animal more difficult or takes it away.

A remedy for this issue is the mowing method from “inside to outside” of the area.

Instead of mowing any edge sections at first, the operator drives straight into the middle of the field and then mows in a left-handed spiral "from the inside to the outside". This allows animals to escape from the field unharmed by following their natural instinct to flee.

Venting the friction clutch

NOTICE

Interventions in the friction clutch will lead to a loss of guarantee!

Interventions in the friction clutch change the slip torque. Therefore the machine may be damaged considerably.

„ Never intervene in the overload protection.

„ Only use KRONE original spare parts.

Overloading and brief torque peaks limit the torque and transfer it evenly during slipping.

To guarantee the function, friction clutches must be bled before the initial start-up and after a prolonged standstill. To do this, the friction linings must be relieved and the clutch manually rotated.

The friction clutch is designed with a permanently adjusted turning torque M
