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 109

.

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 all lever joints and bearing positions, which cannot be lubricated, with oil.

„ 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.

„ If parts need to be replaced, use only KRONE original spare parts.
