Pole protection mechanism

WARNING

Risk of accident due to changed driving behaviour

If the value for the spring on the impact damage protection system is changed, the trigger moment of the impact damage protection system also changes. As a result, the impact damage protection system may trigger in the transport position in case of abrupt loads and the driving behaviour may change. This can lead to accidents.

„ Never change the value for the spring on the impact damage protection system.

NOTICE

Machine damage due to impact damage protection system which does not engage automatically when reversing.

If the impact damage protection system does not engage automatically when reversing, the machine may be damaged.

„ Relieve the relief spring(s) and reverse until the impact damage protection system engages,

see Page 76 .

KMG000-032

The mowing unit is equipped with a so-called impact damage protection system in order to prevent damage when driving into obstacles. After the impact damage protection system has been triggered, the mowing unit swivels back. Reversing the mowing unit causes the impact damage protection system to engage again.

The trigger moment has been set at the factory.

Calculating the ballasting of the tractor-machine combination

WARNING

Danger due to wrong weight distribution in the tractor-machine combination

Due to wrong weight distribution in the tractor-machine combination, people may be seriously or fatally injured.

„ Before starting up the tractor-machine combination, check the following requirements and, if required, adjust according to the operating instructions.

When attaching implements at the front and rear, the permitted total weight, the permitted axle loads and the tyre load capacity of the tractor must not be exceeded. These specifications can be found on the type plate, in the vehicle registration document or in the operating instructions for the tractor.

Even with an implement mounted at the rear, the front axle of the tractor must always be loaded with at least 20% of the tare weight of the tractor.

„ To ensure the suitability of the tractor, perform the following calculation before mounting the implement on the tractor:

Field mode

Game animal protection

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.

Preparation for mowing

ü The hunting community is informed about the mowing time.

ü The area is searched for wildlife and clutches of eggs.

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

R

. The torque is applied to the housing of the friction clutch (2).
