INTRODUCTION
AND
WARRANTY
2.1 INTRODUCTION
NOTE : This book is published for worldwide
distribution, and availability of equipment shown
either as basic or accessory may vary according to the
territory in which the tractor is to be operated. Full
details of equipment available in your area can be
obtained from your Dealer.
The purpose of this book is to enable the owner and
driver to operate the tractor in a safe manner.
Providing that the instructions are followed carefully,
the tractor will give years of service in our tradition.
The installation of the product by the Dealer gives the
opportunity to ensure that the operating and
maintenance instructions are understood. Always
consult your Dealer if do not understand any part of
this book. It is important that these instructions are
understood and observed. Daily maintenance should
become a routine, and a record of hours in service
should be kept.
When new parts are required it is important that only
genuine service parts are used. Our Authorized
Dealers supply genuine parts and can give advice
regarding their fitment and use. Extensive damage
may occur as a result of the fitment of parts of inferior
quality, Customers are advised to buy their service
parts only from an authorized Dealer.
Owing to wide variations in operating conditions, it is
impossible for the Company to make comprehensive
or definitive statements in its publications regarding
performance or methods of use of its machines, or to
accept liability for any loss or damage which may result
from these statements, or from any errors or
omissions. If the tractor is to be used for abnormal
conditions which may be detrimental (e.g. deep water
or paddy fields) consult your Dealer for special
instructions, or the warranty may be invalidated.
These tractors are designed solely for use in
customary agricultural operations (intended use).
Use in any other way is considered as contrary to the
intended use. The tractor manufacturer accepts no
liability for any damage or injury resulting from misuse
and these risks must be borne solely by the user
5
Compliance with, and strict adherence to, the
conditions of operation, service and repair as
specified by the manufacturer also constitute
essential elements for the intended use.
These tractors should be operated, serviced and
repaired only by persons familiar with all their
particular characteristics and who are acquainted
with the relevant safety rules (accident prevention).
Customers are strongly advised to use an official
authorized Dealer in connection with any service
problems and adjustment that may occur.
2.2 WARRANTY, PRE-DELIVERY
and INSTALLATION
The Company, when selling new goods to their
Dealers, gives a warranty which, subject to certain
conditions, guarantees that the goods are free from
defects in material and workmanship. Since this book
is published for worldwide circulation, it is impossible
to detail the exact terms and conditions of warranty
that apply to a retail customer in any particular country.
Purchasers of new equipment should request full
details from their supplying Dealer.
In accordance with the Company policy of continuous
improvement to its machines, alterations in the
specifications of machines may be made at any time
without notice. The Company accepts no
responsibility for discrepancies which may occur
between the specifications of its machines and the
descriptions thereof contained in its publications.
A dealer is required to carry out certain activities when
supplying a new tractor. These consist of a full predelivery inspection to ensure that the tractor supplied
is ready for immediate use, and full instruction in the
basic principles of operation and maintenance of the
tractor. These instructions will cover instruments and
controls, routine maintenance and safety
precautions. All persons who will be concerned with
the operation and maintenance of the machine should
be present for these instructions.
NOTE: The tractor manufacturer will not accept
responsibility for any claim resulting from the
fitment of non-approved parts or attachments, or
unauthorized modification or alteration.

INTRODUCTION
AND
WARRANTY
2.3 WARRANTY PROCEDURE
Correct installation, coupled with regular
maintenance, will do much to prevent breakdowns. If,
however, operating trouble is experienced during the
warranty period, the following procedure must be
adopted:Immediately notify the Dealer from whom you
purchased the tractor, quoting the Model and Serial
Number. It is most important that there should be no
delay, and you should realize that, even where the
original failure is covered by warranty .if the failure is
not repaired immediately, warranty cover may not
apply.
Provide your Dealer with as much background
information as you can. It will help him to know how
many hours service has been achieved, the type of
work on which you are engaged and the symptoms of
the trouble.
It should be noted that normal maintenance services
such as tuning, brake/clutch adjustments, and the
supply of materials used to service the tractor (oil,
filters, fuel and antifreeze) are not covered by terms of
the warranty.
2.4 PARTS WARNING
The fitment of non genuine parts may result in a part
of substandard quality being used. The tractor
manufacturer will not take the responsibility for any
loss, damage or liability resulting from the fitment of
such parts, and, if fitted during the normal warranty
period the manufacturer's guarantee may be
invalidated.
2.5 IF YOU MOVE
Only the official dealer from whom you purchase the
tractor is responsible for the protection afforded by
your warranty and, where possible, you should
always take the tractor to him for repair. If, however.
you move to another area or if your tractor should be
working temporarily at some distance from the
Dealer from whom it was purchased, you are
recommended to obtain from the original Dealer
the name and address of the Dealer nearest to your
new location and to ask for arrangements to be made
for outstanding service warranty commitments to be
transferred to the latter. If you have left the area in
which the original Dealer operates and have
not made arrangements with your new Dealer, the
latter will
readily provide
assistance
in
emergency but you will be charged at normal
rates for any work undertaken unless:
6
a. You make it clear that the warranty has not
expired and
b. You give the repairing Dealer the opportunity to
make suitable arrangements with the retailing
Dealer.
2.6 SERVICE AFTER WARRANTY
During the warranty period, you should have all your
repairs and maintenance performed by your dealer.
This ensures that a detailed check is kept on the
progress and performance of your new tractor.
In order to obtain the best results from your tractor it is
important that regular maintenance and service
checks continue after the warranty period has expired.
Make use of your local Dealer for all major tractor
services; a trained engineer will spot any problems
between the service and the next.
The mechanics are regularly trained and updated on
the product, servicing techniques and the use of
modern service tools and diagnostic equipment. They
receive regular Service Bulletins; have all Workshop
Manuals and other such technical information to
ensure that the repair or service is to the standard
required.
2.7 SAFETY
The safety of operator is one of the main concerns in
designing and developing a new tractor. Designers
build in as many safety features as possible.
However, every year many accidents occur which
could have been avoided by a few seconds thought
and a more careful approach to handling farm
machinery and implements.
Read and implement the safety instructions detailed
in the next section of this book.
WARNING : In some of the illustrations used in
this Operator instruction Book, panels or
guards may have been removed for clarity.
Never operate the tractor without these
components in position. If the removal of
panels or guards is necessary to make a repair,
they MUST be replaced before operation

SAFETY: TRACTOR and IMPLEMENT
!
!
The tractor is a source of power: Both mechanical and hydraulic.
On its own, the tractor is of little practical value. Only when used in conjunction with an implement or
other attachment does it become a working unit.
!
This instruction book is compiled to cover those safe working practices that are associated with the
base tractor operation.
!
It does not cover all operation and safety instructions relevant to all known implements and
attachments that may be fitted at the time of tractor delivery or at some future date.
!
It is essential that operators use and understand the relevant instruction manual of such
implements and attachments.

2.14 SAFETY FRAME
A Safety Structure and seat belt is fitted as standard
equipment to the platform tractor at the time of factory
assembly. If the safety frame was deleted by the
original purchaser or has been removed, it is
recommended that you equip your tractor with a
Safety Structure and a seat belt. Safety frames are
effective in reducing injuries during overturn
accidents. A tractor overturning without safety frame
can result in serious injury or death (fig.2-1)
Depending on laws in force in the various markets, a
seat may be installed. Always raise the safety frame
before may be installed. Always raise the safety frame
before fastening the seat belt.
If a fold-down safety frame is installed. DO NOT wear a
seat belt when the safety frame is in folded down
position. NEVER keep the safety frame in the folded
down position when working with the tractor.
Operation:

frame is not damaged, that it is securely fastened
to the tractor, and, if a hinged section is fitted, that
it is in the raised position and secured.
If the safety frame has been removed from the
tractor, or folded down for a specific operation, it
must be refitted or erected immediately using the
proper hardware and applying the recommended
torque value.
DO NOT ATTACH chains, ropes or cables to the
safety frame for pulling purposes; this will cause
the tractor to tip backwards. Always pull from the
tractor drawbar.
If a seat belt is installed, always wear your seat
belt-adjusted snugly except when operating with a
folded down safety frame or if the safety frame has
been removed (Fig. 2-2)
Check the seat belt for damage. A damaged seat
belt must be replaced (Fig. 2-2).
Fig. 2-1
Damage to the safety frame
If the tractor has rolled over or the safety frame has
been damaged (such as striking an overhead object
during transport), the safety frame must be replaced to
provide the original degree of protection.
After an accident, check for damage to the safety
frame operator's seat, seat belt and seat mountings.
Before you operate the tractor, replace all damaged
parts.
DO NOT WELD, DRILL, BEND OR STRAIGHTEN
THE SAFETY FRAME. IF DONE, reduce the
protection it offers.

Warn bystanders before starting:
Before starting, Walk all around the tractor and any
attached equipment. Make sure that no one is under it,
on it, or close to it. Let other workers and bystanders
know you are starting up and don't start until everyone
is clear of the tractor, implements and towed
equipment.
Ensure that all bystanders, particularly children are in
a safe position before starting the engine.
Mount and dismount properly:
Always use 'three point contact' with the machine,
and face the machine when you mount it. Three
point contact means both hands and one foot or one
hand and both feet are in contact with the machine
at all times during mounting and dismounting.
Fig. 2-9
Clean the soles of your shoes and wipe your hands
before climbing on. Use handrails, grip handrails,
ladders or steps (as provided) when mounting or
dismounting.
NEVER use control levers as a hand hold and
NEVER step on foot controls when mounting or
dismounting.
NEVER attempt to mount or dismount from a moving
tractor. NEVER jump off a tractor in any
circumstances.

SAFETY NOTES
2.35 Risks deriving from exposure to
noise:
Noise characteristics and measurement
Noise is a pressure variation in an elastic medium,
generally the air, produced by the variation of a
material body (source) that determines an undesired
and often annoying acoustic sensation. Noise is
mainly characterized by;
! Sound intensity or level: expresses the entity of
the pressure variation due to the sound wave.
Measured in decibels (dB), It doubles the sound
intensity and, thus, the energy that reaches the
ear.
! Frequency: expresses the number of pressure
variations of the wave per second and is
measured in Hertz (Hz)- acute noises have high
frequencies (2000-4000 Hz or more) while lowpitched noises have low frequencies (250 Hz or
less).
! How the risk is evaluated: The higher the sound
level and exposure time, the greater the noise risk
will be:
! LAeq: (Equivalent continues weighted level A):
this is a sound level measurement that takes into
account noise fluctuations and the varying
sensitivity of the ear to the frequencies: LAeq is
measured with a sound: level meter;
! PEL (Personal Exposure Level): this is a
measurement that takes the various noise levels
into account along with the time the worker
remains on the individual machines or working at
determined processes: PEL is calculated
mathematically.
Noise pathologies
Damage to the hearing
Noise causes hyperdulia or deafness because it
destroys the acoustic receptors, nervous cells able to
transform the mechanical sound vibrations into
nervous impulses that, on reaching the brain,
determine the aural sensation. These receptors are
irreplaceable if they are destroyed and the resulting
damage is irreversible: hyperdulia worsens if
exposure to noise continues and does not improve
even if this terminates.
Moreover, it is also bilateral since it can be
accompanied by annoying buzzing and whistling
sounds, and by intolerance to loud noise.
The damage is insidious since it proceeds slowly and
unexpectedly: in the initial phase, when it is limited to a
diminished ability to perceive acute sounds (music,
bells) or the spoken voice when there is a background
noise, it can only be detected by means of an
25
audiometric test. Pulsating noises of great intensity
lasting a very short time are highly damaging since the
ear is unable to actuate any physiological protective
measures in time. Hyperdulia from noise generally
arises after several years of exposure and depends on
the PEL (risk almost null below 80 dBA) and on
individual characteristics. It is an incurable disease:
the only efficacious means of protection against it is
prevention.
Other effects
Noise does not just determine aural sensation. For
levels exceeding* 70dBA, it causes stress by
means of the cerebral integration centers and
determines a specific neurovegitative reaction
responsible for effects that lead to cardio circulatory
and gastro enteric diseases. Amongst these, it is
worthwhile noting: an increase in gastric acidity, a
decrease in the heart rate, visual range and reflex
speed; a sensation of discomfort and weariness with
an increased sense of fatigue.
These effects are dangerous because they also
increase the risk of accidents.
Personal equipment to protect against noise
Individual protective equipment attenuates the sound
energy transmitted to the ear through the air. This
equipment is used when dangerous exposure cannot
be avoided in any other way.
There are different types of devices with different
attenuating capacities: helmets, ear muffs, ear plugs
(Fig.2-33). Helmets and ear muffs offer the greatest
protection but they are bulky and inconvenient to wear.
They are therefore only of use for exposure to high
noise levels but for short periods of time (max. 2
hours).
Ear plugs are generally tolerated to a greater extent
and are of particular use in the case of lengthy
exposure to noise of a lesser intensity.
Always use adequate individual protective equipment
to safeguard the hearing when the personal daily level
of exposure to noise is 85 dBA or more. Consult the
"specifications" chapter of this manual in relation to
tractor noise measured in instantaneous conditions in
compliance with the laws in force.

NOTES
Operations that must be performed by an authorized
dealer or service agent.
1)
Change the gearbox oil pr the first time after 500
hours, then change it after 1000 hours service
(1000-2000- 3000 etc...)
WARNING : To safeguard the hydraulic lift
and power steering, replace the filter on pump
intake for the first time after 250 hours. After
this, repeat the same operations after every
500 hours service (i.e.500-1000 hours etc.).
2) Have the brakes adjusted after the first 50 hours
work.
CAUTION : Use your own discretion and
experience when deciding the actual intervals
for variable interval service and maintenance
operations. Always remember, however, that
is better to perform them too often than not
often enough
CAUTION : Change the engine oil and
relative filter cartridge after the first 50 hours
work. After this, change the engine oil and
engine oil filter at the intervals given in the
'Routine Maintenance Table'.
CAUTION : Replace the fuel filter twice during
the first 100 hours service (after 50 hours and
after 100 hours). After this, replace the fuel
filter at the intervals specified in the 'Routine
Maintenance Table'.
3) The closed circuit bleeding unit (if mounted) should
be replaced every 8000 hours or on a general
engine overhaul.

MAINTENANCE
5.2 Lubrication and maintenance
5.3 Foreword
This section describes the operations required to
correctly service your tractor. The lubrication table on
page 80 and 81 can be used for quick reference. Each
operation is numbered for easy consultation.
5.4 Safety precautions
Read and comply with all the safety precautions in the
tractor maintenance part of the Safety Notes Section.
NOTE: Old fluid and used filters must be disposed
of in the correct way.
WARNING : Do not carry out inspections,
maintenance work or adjustments on the
tractor while the engine is running.
5.5 Sealed units
Do not remove the seals from the following parts:
injection pump and over speed screw. If you need to
repair or adjust any of these units, contact your local
dealer or authorized repair shop. The warranty is
automatically invalidated if these seals are tampered
with.
5.7 After the first 50 hours
Change the engine oil and relative filter cartridge.
After this, change the engine oil and engine oil filter at
the intervals given in the 'Routine Maintenance Table".
! Replace the fuel filter twice during the first 100
hours service (after 50 hours and after 100
hours). After this, replace the fuel filter at the
intervals specified in Routine 'Maintenance
Table'.
! Check clutch pedal travel in the mechanical
version.
! Check the brake pedal free play.
! Check all oil levels. If necessary, top up with oil
of the prescribed type.
! Check the tension of the fan belt.
! Grease to all grease nipples.
! Check to make sure that all bolts, screw and
nuts are correctly torque.
! Check the tire's pressure.
5.8 How to prevent pollution
To prevent pollution when oil, filters and so forth are
changed, always clean the zone around fill, level and
drain plugs, dipsticks and filters. Before connecting
the auxiliary cylinders, make sure that the oil they
contain is clean, that it has not deteriorated owing to
long storage and that it is of the prescribed type.
5.6 Running in
Fade-free efficiency and a long working life largely
depend on how the new tractor is treated during the
running in period. It is therefore extremely important to
follow these instructions:
! Your engine does not require any special running
in when new. You can use it at full power from the
start but you must never overload it. Avoid using
the engine at full power before it reaches
anoperating temperature of at least 60°C (140° F).
! Every time you start the engine from cold, let it run
slowly without load for a few minutes to warm up.
This is particularly important with turbocharged
engines.
! Avoid idling the engine for long periods.
! Regularly check for oil leaks.

MAINTENANCE
5.9 Serving intervals
5.11 Fuel injection pump
The intervals suggested in the lubrication and
maintenance table are indications to use when the
tractor is used in normal conditions.
These intervals should be adapted to the real
environmental and operational conditions. Serving
must be more frequent in adverse work conditions (in
the presence of humidity, mud, sand, very dusty
environments).
Only OEM Authorised dealer / your Dealer's
specialized personnel may be allowed to work on the
injection pump during the warranty period. Removal of
the seals from the pump will relieve the manufacturer
from all and every liability in relation to warranty
coverage.
WARNING : After the first 50 hours service,
change the engine oil (operation No. 19) and
the relative filter (operation No. 20). and
replace the fuel filter operation No. 23).
WARNING : After the first 250 hours service,
replace the oil filter cartridge of the
transmission, hydraulic lift and steering circuit
(operation No. 21).
CAUTION : If carried out at the prescribed
intervals, the operations described in this
section will ensure that the tractor operates in a
regular way. However, remember to carry out
the inspections and adjustments (of variable
frequency depending on the environmental
conditions and type of work carried out)
according to your discretion and experience
5.10 Miscellaneous inspections
Periodically check the following components. If faults
are discovered, contact your Dealer's specialized
personnel and have the damaged parts replaced if
necessary:
! Hydraulic hoses: the hoses must not be squeezed
or cracked. The outer sheath must not be swollen.
There must be no oil leaks between the hoses and
their unions.
! Hand brake lever: make sure that the ratchet
locking mechanism is secure and reliable.
! Make sure that all nuts are well tightened.
! Make sure that the safety frame bolts are well
tightened.
! Make sure that all other nuts and bolts are well
tightened.
69
5.12 Keep the environment clean
When you need to fill the fuel tank or charge the
lubricating oil, never forget to position a vessel under
the component in question in order to collect any fuel
or oil that spills out. These products are polluting , so it
is very important to protect the environment in this
way.
5.13 Engine cooling system
It is advisable to replace the fluid in the system at
least once a year even if you have not reached 1000
hours service in total.
5.14 Radiator
To ensure that the cooling circuit operates in a perfect
way, it is important to prevent the radiator fins from
becoming clogged.
These fins should be cleaned often, even several
times a day if the place of work is particularly dusty.
5.15 Lubrication
Before lubricating any parts provided with grease
nipples, carefully clean the fittings surfaces and be
sure that their seal ball moves freely. After the
lubrication, remove any trace of grease to avoid
collecting dirt or dust.
5.16 Indicator lights
Your tractor is equipped with indicator lights that the
conditions of your machine. Some of these indicate
faults, so act promptly if they come on during turning or
based conditions.

instructions when working with the diesel fuel :
1. Do not smoke while filling the fuel tank because
diesel is explosive liquid and catch fire easily.
2. Never use such mixtures. Moreover, mixtures of
diesel fuel and alcohol are not approved since the
resulting lubrication of the fuel injection system is
insufficient.
3. Clean around the plug where the fuel is poured
and keep it clean.
4. Fill the tank at the end of the day to prevent the
formation of overnight condensation.
5. Never remove the plug or fuel the tractor while the
engine is running. Keep control of the pump
nozzle whilst the tank is being filled.
6. The tank must not be completely filled. Allow
space for an increase in volume. If the original tank
plug is lost, it must be replaced with an original
spare which must be fully tightened.
7. Dry up any fuel spill immediately.

If the fuel is not filtered from the storage can, use a
funnel with the fine gauge mesh over the tracking
fuel tank fill plug inlet when fuelling.
Plan your fuel purchases so that summer fuels are
not kept for too long and used in the winter.
5.18 Fuel requisites
It is important to use good quality fuel if the engine is to
be long-lasting and give a good performance. The
fuels must be clean, well refined and non-corrosive for
the fuel system components. Make sure that you use
fuel of a known quality and reliable origin.
5.19 Fuelling
Before you fuel the tractor, clean the zone around the
fill plug to prevent foreign bodies from entering the
tank. After fuelling, screw on the plug and tighten it
well.
NOTE: Use galvanized containers
5.20 Fuel storage
Take all the necessary precautions to ensure that
stored fuel does not become polluted with dirt, water
or other substances.
! Store fuel in black iron cans. Do not store it in
galvanized cans as the galvanization treatment
would react with the fuel and form compounds that
would spoil the injection pump and injectors.
! Store fuel cans away from direct sunlight and
slightly tilted, so that any sediment inside is
eliminated through the outlet tube.
! To make sludge and condensation water easier to
remove; there should be a discharge plug C in the
lowest point, on the opposite side to the drain

WARNING : NEVER remove the radiator cap
when the engine is hot. Unscrew the cap very
slowly to release the pressure before taking it
off completely.
Set a suitable vessel in position and drain out the
coolant through radiator plug(3) and through plug(not
shown) of the engine block.
Shut off the drain plugs and fill up the system with
coolant fluid until the level reaches 2025 mm below the
edge of fill plug 1 ( Fig. 5-34) of radiator (2).
Remove the fill plug and allow the engine to run at
1000 RPM for a few minutes. Now check the level and
top up if necessary. Shut the fill plug once the cleaning
operation has terminated.
NOTE : In an emergency, to make up for sudden
leaks, the system can be topped up with water by
pouring this through the filler plug.

5.54 ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
Battery Fig.5-36
Your tractor is equipped with a "Maintenance Free
battery." Keep the battery clean and dry, particularly on
top. Check the electrolyte level: it should just touch the
upper mark and never be under the bottom mark. If
necessary, open the cover and add distilled water.
WARNING : NEVER top up with SULPHURIC
ACID.
Do not use quick battery chargers to recharge the
Batteries.
Check the battery charge with a digital voltmeter as
Described below:
!
Connect to the two battery poles, matching their
terminals with the same sign (negative with negative
and positive with positive). Now read the measured
value on the instrument;
!
Compare this value with the ones in the table to
establish the battery charge status.

When the voltage is near 12.30V, the battery must be
immediately charged with current equal to 1/10 of the
capacity in Ah (a 50 Ah battery must be given a 5 Amp
charge).
WARNING : Remember to disconnect the
cables before you recharge the battery. It is
advisable to remove the battery from its housing
and to recharge it well away from the tractor.
WARNING : The place in which the battery is
recharged must be well ventilated. Do not
smoke or work with tools liable to produce
sparks whilst the battery is being recharged.
NOTE : Batteries and electrical accumulators
contain various components that can pollute the
environment unless they are correctly recycled
after use. You are strongly advised to return all
"dry batteries" used in electrical or electronic
systems to your Dealer. He will ensure that they
are correctly disposed of or recycled. In some
countries, this procedure is required by law.
NOTE : If the battery must be topped up frequently
or tends to discharge, have the electrical system
of your tractor checked by your area Dealer's
specialized personnel.
