Checking the wear limit on cutting discs/mower drums

WARNING

Abrasion on cutting discs/mower drums

Due to abrasion limits on the cutting discs/mower drums, the blades or parts may loosen because of high rotating speed. Thus there is a risk of serious injuries or death.

The wear limit for abrasion limits (2) on the cutting discs/mower drums is reached when the material thickness is less than 3 mm .

„ The cutting discs/mower drums must be replaced at the latest when the material thickness is below the minimum material thickness of 3 mm.

„ The cutting discs/mower drums must only be replaced by KRONE original spare parts.

Placing the machine in storage at the end of the harvest season is the best possible way to preserve the machine.

„ Park the machine in a weatherproof and dry place which is far away from corrosive substances.

„ Clean the machine thoroughly.

Chaff and dirt attract moisture which causes steel parts to start rusting.

NOTICE

Damage to the machine due to water damages with high-pressure cleaner

If the water jet from a high-pressure cleaner is aimed directly at bearings and electrical/ electronic components, these parts can be damaged.

„ Do not aim the water jet from high-pressure cleaner at bearings and electrics/electronic components.

„ Lubricate the machine according to lubrication chart. Do not wipe off any grease that comes out of bearing points as the hardened grease will provide additional protection against moisture.

„ Grease the threads of setting screws and similar items.

„ Relieve the relief springs.

„ Disassemble the universal shaft. Grease the inner tubes.

„ Grease the grease nipples on the universal joint of the universal shaft and on the bearing rings of the guard tubes,

refer to page 84 .

INFORMATION

Observe operating instructions of universal shaft manufacturer.

„ Lubricate the uncoated piston rods of all hydraulic cylinders liberally and insert as far as possible.

„ Wet with oil all lever joints and bearing points which cannot be lubricated.

„ Repair places with damaged paint and preserve all bare metal places thoroughly with rust protection agent.

„ Check all moveable parts to make certain they move easily. If necessary, dismount, clean, grease and remount.

„ Only use KRONE original spare parts when parts have to be replaced.
