If you have any questions about any Dawn safety sign, or have further questions about the safety recommendations on this or any other

Dawn product, please contact Dawn Equipment Company at 800.554.0007.

SAFETY TRIGGERS

Several safety symbols appear with their associated safety words throughout your Dawn Equipment user manual. It is important to recognize and understand these safety signals in order to take appropriate action as necessary.

DANGER - Indicates an imminently hazardous situation that, if not avoided, will result in serious injury or death, and/or property damage

MAINTENANCE AND UPKEEP

For safety reasons, it is important to keep your implements in proper working order. Unauthorized modifications to

Dawn Equipment Company products may compromise the efficiency and/or safe operation of the product and will void any and all warranties through Dawn Equipment Company.

Please read your manual before attempting any repair work to your Dawn tool. If you need to work on your Dawn tool, make sure to support it before partially or fully removing it from the attachment points. Do not adjust your Dawn tools while they are moving. Before making adjustments to your Dawn fx tool, make sure to disengage the hydraulic circuit and disconnect the power source.

PROTECTIVE CLOTHING

Wearing proper attire when working on agricultural equipment is a critical safety precaution. Loose clothing or accessories may become entangled in moving parts causing serious injury or death. Please ensure that loose cuffs, shirts, belts, jewelry, etc. are secured such that they cannot be drawn into moving machinery. Stay aware of your surroundings when in the proximity of machinery that is either moving or has the potential for spontaneous movement. Equip yourself with all recommended safety accessories, and develop a strategy for ensuring their use when needed.

SAFETY GLASSES/GOGGLES

If you will be using hazardous chemicals, or are striking, cutting or grinding metal make sure you are wearing eye protection.

EARPLUGS / SOUND MUFFLERS

When working around equipment that generates high amplitude sound (ie dryers, vacuums, etc.) ear protection is strongly recommended.

RESPIRATOR MASK

Carefully read all safety information associated with any chemicals you will be handling. Use a respirator mask when using hazardous chemicals, (ie Insecticides,

NH3, etc.)

WORK GLOVES

If working around machinery with sharp edges, or rough metal surfaces, work gloves may prevent a few stitches. Work gloves are inexpensive, and are really worth the investment.

STEEL-TOED BOOTS

A good pair of steel-toed boots can safe your toes. Avoid an unfortunate accident, and protect your feet.

FIRST AID KIT

In order to minimize the risk of infection, every shop and tractor should have a complete first aid kit.

PRODUCT INTRODUCTION

CURVETINE PLACEMENT - STAGGERING WHEELS

Most major planter row unit manufacturers incorporate a two-hole tailpiece design for staggering the closing wheels.

When running one Curvetine and one rubber wheel, it is recommended to have the Curvetine in the front hole closest to the planter with the rubber wheel in the rear hole. This is a good idea for shallow planting depth and prevents the

Curvetine from becoming too aggressive. If more aggressive action is needed, you may reverse the orientation and run the Curvetine in the rear hole furthest from the planter with the rubber wheel in the leading hole. With either setting, it is important to be mindful of your tailpiece down-pressure.

The first (lightest pressure) notch is a good place to start.

HUB ORIENTATION

Hubs are handed! Due to the special hub-shaft threading, a left-handed hub can only be installed on the left-hand side of the tailpiece, and a right-handed hub can only be installed on the right-hand side of the tailpiece.

Left-hand hubs are indentifi ed by an “L” marked on the hub shafts. The right-hand hub shaft will show nothing on it.

CLOSING WHEEL SPACING

You will notice that each kit contains multiple washers as well as a triangular hub spacer. These will allow you to adjust your closing wheel spacing to match your planting depth. The deeper your seed is being placed, the further apart the closing wheels need to be. This instruction manual outlines an initial setup procedure that gives around a 2 inch wheel spacing. Dawn supplies a triangluar hub spacer to be installed with the Curvetine to keep spacing uniform when switching between Curvetines and rubber wheels. You may need to adjust your wheel spacing as necessary. specific adjustments not explicitly outlined in this manual may be required for optimum performance.

Left-hand threads Right-hand threads

for left-hand hub for right-hand hub

WHEEL ORIENTATION

Curvetines are directional! Due to the modular design of the M-Series Curvetine, there is only one forged wheel which can be mounted to either the right-hand or left-hand side of the tailpiece. Install Curvetines according to the arrow indicating direction of forward travel.

Rotational Arrow indicates forward rotation.

The distance between your closing wheels should be about the same as your planting depth. Make sure wheels sit on the OUTSIDE of the furrow.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE

Use Mobil XP222 or similar to grease hubs yearly or every

100 acres/row, whichever comes first. In extremely dusty environments and when liquid fertilizer is being applied with the planter, it may be necessary to grease hubs daily.

Grease to purge; it is not possible to over-grease hubs.

Remove excess grease.
