Important Safety Information
Look for Safety Symbol
The SAFETY ALERT SYMBOL indicates there is a
potential hazard to personal safety involved and extra
safety precaution must be taken. When you see this
symbol, be alert and carefully read the message that follows it. In addition to design and configuration of equipment, hazard control and accident prevention are
dependent upon the awareness, concern, prudence and
proper training of personnel involved in the operation,
transport, maintenance and storage of equipment.
Be Aware of Signal Words
Signal words designate a degree or level of hazard seriousness.
DANGER indicates an imminently hazardous situation
which, if not avoided, will result in death or serious injury.
This signal word is limited to the most extreme situations,
typically for machine components that, for functional purposes, cannot be guarded.
WARNING indicates a potentially hazardous situation
which, if not avoided, could result in death or serious
injury, and includes hazards that are exposed when
guards are removed. It may also be used to alert against
unsafe practices.
CAUTION indicates a potentially hazardous situation
which, if not avoided, may result in minor or moderate
injury. It may also be used to alert against unsafe practices.
Be Familiar with Safety Decals
▲ Read and unerstand “Safety Reflectors and Decals” starting on page 8, thoroughly.
▲ Read all instructions noted on the decals.
Avoid High Pressure Fluids
▲ Escaping fluid under pressure can penetrate the skin, causing serious injury. If hydraulic fluid penetrates the skin
under pressure, immediate medical attention is required.
See a physician familiar with this type of injury
▲ Avoid the hazard by relieving pressure before disconnecting
hydraulic lines.
▲ Use a piece of paper or cardboard, NOT BODY PARTS, to
check for suspected leaks.
▲ Wear protective gloves and safety glasses or goggles when
working with hydraulic systems.

Wear Protective Equipment
Great Plains advises all users of chemical pesticides or
herbicides to use the following personal safety equipment.
▲ Waterproof, wide-brimmed hat
▲ Waterproof apron.
▲ Face shield, goggles or full face respirator.
▲ Goggles with side shields or a full face respirator is
required if handling or applying dusts, wettable powders, or
granules or if being exposed to spray mist.
▲ Cartridge-type respirator approved for pesticide vapors
unless label specifies another type of respirator.
▲ Waterproof, unlined gloves. Neoprene gloves are recommended.
▲ Cloth coveralls/outer clothing changed daily; waterproof
items if there is a chance of becoming wet with spray
▲ Waterproof boots or foot coverings
▲ Do not wear contaminated clothing. Wash protective clothing and equipment with soap and water after each use. Personal clothing must be laundered separately from
household articles.
▲ Clothing contaminated with certain pesticides must be
destroyed according to state and local regulations. Read
chemical label for specific instructions.
▲ Wear clothing and equipment appropriate for the job. Avoid
loose-fitting clothing.
▲ Prolonged exposure to loud noise can cause hearing
impairment or loss. Wear suitable hearing protection such
as earmuffs or earplugs.
▲ Avoid wearing entertainment headphones while operating
machinery. Operating equipment safely requires the full
attention of the operator.

Handle Chemicals Properly
▲ Read and follow chemical manufacturer’s instructions.
▲ Wear protective clothing.
▲ Handle all chemicals with care.
▲ Agricultural chemicals can be dangerous. Improper use can
seriously injure persons, animals, plants, soil and property.
▲ Inhaling smoke from any type of chemical fire is a serious
health hazard.
▲ Store or dispose of unused chemicals as specified by the
chemical manufacturer.
▲ Before adding chemical to the tank, make sure tank is at
least half full. Do not pour concentrate into an empty tank.
▲ Never leave fill hose attached to the sprayer after filling
tank. Chemicals in tank can siphon out of tank and contaminate freshwater source.
▲ Always keep hand-wash tank filled with clean water and
have soap available in case of an emergency. Immediately
and thoroughly flush any area of the body that is contaminated by chemicals.
▲ Do not touch sprayer components with mouth or lips.
▲ If chemical is swallowed, carefully follow the chemical
manufacturer’s recommendations and consult with a doctor.
▲ If persons are exposed to a chemical in a way that could
affect their health, consult a doctor immediately with the
chemical label or container in hand. Any delay could cause
serious illness or death.
▲ Dispose of empty chemical containers properly. By law
rinsing of the used chemical container must be repeated
three times. Puncture the container to prevent future use. An
alternative is to jet-rinse or pressure rinse the container.
▲ Wash hands and face before eating after working with
chemicals. Shower as soon as spraying is completed for the
day.
▲ Spray only with acceptable wind conditions. Wind speed
must be below 5 mph. Make sure wind drift of chemicals
will not affect any surrounding land, people or animals.
▲ Never wash out the sprayer tank within 100 feet (30m) of
any freshwater source or in a car wash.
▲ Rinse out the tank. Spray rinse water on last field sprayed.

Great Plains Manufacturing, Inc.
Confined Space
Once used for hazardous fertilizers, or seeds with hazardous treatments, your tank may become a
“permit-required confined space” under applicable statutes, regulations, insurance rules or business policy.
▲ When hazardous fumes are present, you can be quickly
overcome even with the tank lid open.
▲ Do not enter a tank for material loading, material unloading, tank cleaning or valve maintenance.
▲ Clean tank by power washing from outside the tank top.
▲ Perform valve maintenance by removing meters from bottom of empty tank.
▲ If obstruction removal or repair requires tank entry, have
the work performed by a team trained in confined space
procedures. See “Tank Entry” on page 70.
Use A Safety Chain
▲ Use a safety chain to help control drawn machinery should
it separate from tractor drawbar.
▲ Use a chain with a strength rating equal to or greater than
the gross weight of towed machinery.
▲ Attach chain to tractor drawbar support or other specified
anchor location. Allow only enough slack in chain to permit
turning.
▲ Replace chain if any links or end fittings are broken,
stretched or damaged.
▲ Do not use safety chain for towing.
Keep Riders Off Machinery
▲ Riders obstruct the operator’s view. Riders could be struck
by foreign objects or thrown from the machine.
▲ Never allow children to operate equipment.
▲ Keep all bystanders away from machine during operation.
Use Safety Lights and Devices
▲ Slow-moving tractors and towed implements can create a
hazard when driven on public roads. They are difficult to
see, especially at night.
▲ Use flashing warning lights and turn signals whenever driving on public roads.
▲ Use tractor lights and lights provided with implement.

Check for Overhead Lines
Sprayer booms contacting overhead electrical lines can introduce lethal voltage levels on sprayer and tractor frames. A
person touching almost any metal part can complete the circuit to ground, resulting in serious injury or death. At higher
voltages, electrocution can occur without direct contact.
▲ Avoid overhead lines during sprayer operations.
Transport Machinery Safely
▲ Maximum transport speed for implement is 20 mph (32
kph). Some rough terrains require a slower speed. Sudden
braking can cause a towed load to swerve and upset.
▲ Do not exceed 20 mph (32 kph). Never travel at a speed
which does not allow adequate control of steering and stopping. Reduce speed if towed load is not equipped with
brakes.
▲ Comply with state and local laws.
▲ Do not tow an implement that, when fully loaded, weighs
more than 1.5 times the weight of towing vehicle.
▲ Carry reflectors or flags to mark Front Fold Boom Sprayer
in case of breakdown on the road.
▲ Keep clear of overhead power lines and other obstructions
when transporting. Refer to transport dimensions under
“Specifications and Capacities” on page 79.
▲ Do not fold or unfold the Front Fold Boom Sprayer while
the tractor is moving.
Shutdown and Storage
▲ Fold Front Fold Boom Sprayer, put tractor in park, turn off
engine, and remove the key.
▲ Secure Front Fold Boom Sprayer using blocks and supports
provided.
▲ Detach and store Front Fold Boom Sprayer in an area
where children normally do not play.

Preparation and Setup
Before You Start
Read and understand the owners manual for your
sprayer. A basic understanding of how the sprayer works
will aid in the assembly, setup and operation of your
sprayer.
Perform these checks before setting up your cross-fold
boom.
1. Read and understand “Important Safety Information” on page 1.
2. Check that all working parts are moving freely, bolts
are tight, and cotter pins are spread.
3. Check that all grease fittings are in place and lubricated. See “Lubrication” on page 71.
4. Check that all safety decals and reflectors are correctly located and legible. Replace if damaged. See
“Safety Reflectors and Decals” on page 8.
Hitching Tractor to Sprayer
The standard TSF1080, TSF1090, TSF1280 & TSF1290
sprayers require a tractor with closed center hydraulics. If
the tractor has open center hydraulics, the sprayer must
be adapted to it with an open center conversion kit, 833427C. See page 76.
Negative tongue weight - do not unfold boom before hitching.
When the tank is low or empty, unfolded booms can move the
center of gravity aft of the wheels. This will cause the tongue
to rise, with risk of personal injury and equipment damage.
Hitch Type
If the sprayer has a hydraulic pump, the hitch is a choice
of single tang or clevis. Hitching instructions begin on
page 20.
If the sprayer has a PTO pump, a ball hitch with hitch
plate is standard. Hitching instructions begin on page 21.
You may be severely injured or killed by being crushed
between the tractor and sprayer. Do not stand or place any
part of your body between sprayer and moving tractor. Stop
tractor engine and set park brake before installing the hitch
pin.
Electrocution hazard. To prevent serious injury or death from
electric shock, keep clear of overhead power lines when transporting, folding or unfolding boom. Boom is not grounded.
Electrocution can occur without direct contact. Refer to transport dimensions under “Specifications and Capacities” on
page 79. Do not fold or unfold boom while tractor is moving.

Axle Spacing
The TSF sprayers have sliding axles allowing wheel center-lines to be in the range:
N.America: 80 to 120 inches (203 to 305cm)
Export: 203 to 290cm (80 to 114in).
You can set them to match or complement tractor tire
spacing.
This adjustment is most easily done when the sprayer is
mechanically hitched with empty tanks. See “Axle

Hydraulic Hookup
The standard TSF1080, TSF1090, TSF1280 & TSF1290
sprayer has a single hydraulic connection at the hitch.
Each cart hydraulic function is served by an electrohydraulic control valve at boom center.
If an optional hydraulic pump is installed, there is a second hydraulic connection for the pump, which is located
near the hitch.
Refer to Figure 9
Both hose sets have labels for flow conventions. These
labels use cylinder Base/Extend and Rod/Retract icons.
Be sure to connect these to the matching tractor
remotes, so that when remote levers are activated as
described in this manual:
a. booms move in the described directions, and
b. pump flow is forward and not reversed.
Sprayer Control Hydraulic Hookup
If the sprayer has a hydraulic pump, and the tractor has
only one circuit capable of continuous flow or only one
capable of adjustable continuous flow, reserve that circuit
for the pump, and use another for the main sprayer functions.
1. Connect the main sprayer hydraulic hoses to suitable
tractor remotes. They are easily identified, as they
pass behind the pump.
Hydraulic Pump Hookup
The hydraulic motor used on all liquid pumps is a 7 gpm
(23 liter/min.) motor. If the tractor used on the sprayer
does not have the capabilities to adjust the remotes
down to this flow, then a Hydraulic Flow Divider Kit must
be installed so that flow can be controlled to prevent
operating the pump at excessive speeds. See a Great
Plains dealer for more information.
Figure 9
Hose Label
Outlet Port
Inlet Port
Refer to Figure 10
2. The pressure hose coming out of the tractor remotes
must be connected to the motor inlet port (“I” on current pumps; “A” on older pumps, Base end on hose
label), and the return line connected to the motor
outlet (“O” on current pumps, “B” on older pumps,
Rod end on hose label).
3. Before operating, place a stop in the neutral position
for the tractor hydraulics so that the hydraulic lever
can only be moved to the float and down positions.
Refer to the tractor’s operator’s manual or tractor
dealer on information for the neutral stop.

Tractor / PTO Shaft Hookup
Rotating driveline contact can cause death. KEEP AWAY!
Shut down tractor when making connection.
Do not operate without guards attached and driveline securely
attached at both ends.
1. Verify that the tractor drawbar height, and tractor
PTO-to-drawbar spacing, are within ASAE standards, or as shown on page 25.

2. Position the PTO pump on the tractor’s PTO shaft
with the coupler bolt removed on the splined end.
3. Push the coupler of the pump on to align with notch
in the tractor PTO shaft and install bolt.
4. For a 540 RPM pump or a 1000 RPM 13⁄8in spline
pump, torque the 1⁄2in Grade 8 coupler bolts to 105
ft-lbs.
DANGER
5. Rotate the PTO shaft by hand to make sure the bolts
clear the PTO shielding.
6. Attach the torque bar chain to the drawbar securely.
7. Hook the tarp strap in such a way that the slack in
the chain is taken up slowly when the PTO is
engaged so the torque bar does not bang.
8. Tie up any loose hoses with cable ties to prevent
hose damage.
Refer to Figure 11
9. If ASAE dimensions can be maintained, re-adjust the
tractor drawbar so that the implement end of the driveline centerline, at the bearing housing is level with
or slightly higher than the output centerline at the
tractor. This reduces driveline vibration when turning
a corner.
Refer to Figure 12
10. If insufficient (or no) hitch adjustment is available,
adjust the rear driveline height by loosening the four
bolts 4 securing the pump mount.

If, after adjusting the vertical position of the pump drive-shaft,
the drive-shaft is still much higher than the PTO drive-shaft on
the tractor, adjust the hitch up one position and readjust the
pump drive-shaft. See “Leveling Sprayer” on page 25.

ASAE standards call for the top of the tractor drawbar
2 to be 13 to 20 inches (33 to 51cm) above ground.
Using a level, and yardstick or meter stick, check along
the tank frame. The forward end of the measuring stick
would be lower than the back end by:
yardstick: 3⁄4in
meter stick: 2cm
Figure 13
Leveled Sprayer
27161
Level may be adjusted either at the hitch, or at the
tongue-to-frame joint 3 (or both).
If a PTO pump is present, the hitch height adjustment
range may be limited. If adjustments are made for PTO
alignment, level needs to be re-checked, and may need
adjustment at the tongue-mainframe joint 3 .

Hitch Height
With a hydraulic pump sprayer, make leveling adjustments at the tractor hitch (if possible). Keep the tractor
drawbar height within the ASAE recommended range
(13-20 inches, 33-51cm).
With a PTO pump, make leveling adjustments at the
hitch, but only if:

Locking System Setup
Refer to Figure 19
The TSF1080, TSF1090, TSF1280 and TSF1290 have a
locking system for automatic boom locking during folding
and transport. For proper folding, the boom-lock cable
must be tight enough that the lock arms just clear their
stops when unfolded and rest secure against the stop
when folded.

Hydraulic Pump Setup
The hydraulic motor used on all liquid pumps is a 7 gpm
(23 liter/min.) motor. If the tractor used on the sprayer
does not have the capabilities to adjust the remotes
down to this flow, then a Hydraulic Flow Divider Kit must
be installed so that flow can be controlled to prevent
operating the pump at excessive speeds. See a Great
Plains dealer for more information.
1. Connect the hydraulic pump to the tractor remotes.
See “Hydraulic Pump Hookup” on page 23 for
details. If no limiter is required, skip to step 7.
DO NOT move the hydraulic lever into the neutral position
while the hydraulic pump is running. To do so may cause damage to the hydraulic pump.

TSF1080, TSF1090, TSF1280 & TSF1290
Ace Pump Flow Limiter (Option)
The flow limiter (Great Plains part number 829-125C) is
a hydraulic device designed to shut off the flow of
hydraulic oil when a specified flow is exceeded. On tractors with LOAD SENSING (LS) Closed Center hydraulic
systems, this device limits the flow of oil to the Ace motor
and prevents failures due to misapplication.
Newer Case-IH, John Deere, New Holland, and CAT
tractors, present a great potential to turn the motors
beyond their rated speeds. Flows out of the hydraulic
valves can exceed 20 gpm while the motors are rated at
4-11 gpm. The flow limiter protects the Ace motor by
shutting off when hydraulic flows exceed the motor’s
capacity.
Great Plains Manufacturing, Inc.
Note: If the flow limiter stops the flow of oil to the motor:
6a) Move the hydraulic lever to the “Neutral” position. This removes the oil pressure from the flow
limiter and allows it to reset.
6b) Adjust the flow control to a lower flow position.
6c) Repeat step 5 and step 6.
Setting Pump Rate
7. To determine the correct setting of the flow rate, start
out with the hydraulic flow control valve at minimum
flow for the outlets that operate the pump.
The flow limiter should not be used on OPEN Center or
PRESSURE COMPENSATING Closed Center hydraulic
systems. The flow limiter should not be used with a
restrictor orifice.
8. With water in the sprayer tank and in the pump, place
the hydraulic lever in the float position.
Flow Limiter Installation
2. Install the flow limiter in the inlet port of the Ace
motor.
10. Start the tractor and engage the pump by placing the
hydraulic lever in the down (forward) position.
3. Shut off boom and agitation valves on the sprayer to
deadhead the sprayer pump flow.
4. Adjust the flow control on the tractor to the minimum
flow setting (typically a “turtle” icon).
5. Move the hydraulic lever to the “Lower/Retract” position.
6. Adjust the flow control on the tractor until the sprayer
system deadhead pressure is 80 psi.
9. Open up the sprayer flow control valve to its maximum setting.
11. Once the system builds pressure, close the agitation
valve, shut off the boom section switches, and close
the throttling valves (if applicable).
12. The pump is now at dead head pressure and the
hydraulic control valve must be adjusted so that the
spray pressure reaches 80 PSI maximum on the
nozzle pressure gauge. This process should be done
with the tractor throttle set at normal operating
speed. Mark this setting on the hydraulic control
valve for future reference.
13. Open up the agitation valve and reset the throttling
valve (if applicable). See “Manual Throttle Valve” on
page 32.
Electrical Installation
Prior to first use, complete these items (or verify that they
have been completed), then make the tractor-sprayer
electrical connections (see page 24).
Lights
Refer to Figure 22
The lights and harness are standard, and pre-installed
on the sprayer, but require the common SAE J560B 7pin receptacle on the tractor. If your tractor doesn’t have

Raven SCS 450
The Raven SCS 450 (Sprayer Control System) is standard, and the sprayer-side components (other than
speed sensor) are pre-installed.
The SCS 450 system consists of a computer-based Control Console, a Speed Sensor, a turbine type Flow Meter
and a motorized Control Valve. The Console mounts
directly in the cab of the tractor for easy operator use.
The Radar Speed Sensor is mounted to the frame of the
tractor or sprayer (wheel drive and speedometer Drive
Speed Sensors are also available.) The motorized Control Valve and Flow Meter mount to the framework supporting the boom valves. Appropriate cabling is furnished
for field installation.
The controller module must be installed in the tractor cab
prior to first use, and must be connected to one or more
tractor systems, including:
• battery power (red:+, black:-)
• existing or new speed sensor, if tractor-mounted (and
if new tractor mount, the sensor must be installed)
Your Great Plains dealer can assist with the installation.
A Raven installation and service manual are provided.
Once installed and connected for the first time, setup and
calibration steps are necessary prior to first field operations. See “Sprayer Calibration” on page 33.
It is important to read and understand the Raven manual
before operating the system.
The operator sets the target volume per area to be
sprayed and the SCS 450 automatically maintains the
flow regardless of vehicle speed or gear selection. A
manual override switch allows the operator to manually
control flow for system check-out and spot spraying.
Actual volume per area being applied is displayed at all
times. The SCS 450 additionally functions as an area
monitor, speed monitor and volume totalizer.
Raven Setup
Current TSF1080, TSF1090, TSF1280 & TSF1290
sprayers include a Raven SCS 450 controller as standard equipment. The controller needs to be installed in
the tractor cab, and cables run to the sprayer, speed sensor and battery prior to first use. Consult the included
Raven manual for installation instructions.
The SCS 450 requires some initial data about your
sprayer and tractor prior to first use.
This data is retained as long as the SCS 450 remains
connected to battery power. If power is removed for electrical work, long term tractor parking or welding, the data
is lost and must be re-entered.

Hydraulic Pump Setup
1. To determine the correct flow rate to the hydraulic
motor, start with the hydraulic control valve set at a
minimum flow, and the hydraulic lever in the float
position.
2. Open up the sprayer control valve to its maximum
setting. (On the Raven SCS 450 monitor, with the
power switch On, the Rate switch must be placed in
the manual position, and the increase/decrease
switch must be pushed to Increase for 10-12 seconds.)
3. Start the tractor and engage the pump by placing the
hydraulic lever in the down position. Once the system builds pressure on the nozzle pressure gauge,
speed up the tractor throttle to normal operating
speed. Shut off the boom section switches and close
the agitation valve.
4. The pump is now at deadhead pressure and the
hydraulic control valve must be adjusted up until the
spray pressure reaches 80 psi maximum on the nozzle pressure gauge. Mark this setting on the hydraulic control valve for future reference.

5. Open up the agitation valve.
PTO Pump Setup
1. Open up the sprayer control valve to the maximum
setting. (On the Raven SCS 450 monitor, with the
power switch on, the rate switch must be placed in
the manual position, and the increase/decrease
switch must be pushed to increase for 10-12 seconds.)
2. Start the tractor and engage the PTO pump slowly
with the tractor engine idling. Once the system builds
pressure on the nozzle pressure gauge, shut off the
boom section switches, and close the agitation valve.
3. The pump is now at deadhead pressure. Increase
the engine RPM’s until the spray pressure reaches
80 P.S.I. maximum on the nozzle pressure gauge or
the PTO speed reaches the rated RPM (540/1000).
Never exceed the rated tractor PTO RPM. This is the
RPM needed to spray at to prevent excess pressure
on the sprayer’s plumbing.
4. Open up the agitation valve.

Manual Throttle Valve
When the manual throttle valve is full open (valve 23 in
Figure 28 on page 40), the pressure adjustment can be
very sensitive. The butterfly valve 16 has to move more
often causing additional wear.
To decrease the sensitivity, set the manual throttle
adjustment valve as follows:
spray at. Spraying pressure is determined when calibrating sprayer. Refer to the Application Guide.
With this valve set, it decreases the flow through the
electric ball valve and reduces the sensitivity of the pressure adjustment switch.
1. Open the throttle valve so that it is wide open and
there is full flow to the sprayer booms. Open the butterfly valve until it is full open.
2. Close the throttle valve down until the pressure is
about 20 psi greater than the pressure you intend to

Sprayer Calibration
Sprayer calibration prepares your sprayer for operation
and diagnoses nozzle wear. This gives you optimum performance from your nozzles and ensures accurate application.
Equipment that may be needed:
• Calibration Container
• Great Plains Nozzle Tip Calculator:
832-038C - U.S. customary units (English), or
832-058C - Metric (English/Russian legends)
27165
• General calculator
• Stopwatch or wristwatch with second hand.
Speed Calibration
Current TSF1080, TSF1090, TSF1280 & TSF1290
sprayers include a Raven SCS 450 controller as standard equipment, and the SCS 450 requires a speed
sensing input, a new or existing wheel sensor or radar.
For a sprayer with the Raven SCS440 controller, perform
the speed calibration procedure from the Raven SCS
450 manual, then resume at “Rate Calibration” on page
34 in this manual.
For a sprayer without a Raven controller, use the following steps.
1. Measure off a 200 foot (or 100 meter) course in the
area to be sprayed or in an area with similar surface
conditions.
2. Select the engine throttle setting and gear that will
be used when spraying. Allow ample approach distance to starting point so that tractor is at desired
speed at start marker. Allow ample overrun area so
that braking is not needed until exiting the course.
3. Hold the speed as you approach the “start” marker,
and check the time required to travel through the
course to the “end” marker.
4. Repeat the above procedure, and average the times
that were recorded. Use these equations to determine the trial ground speed.

Rate Calibration
Current TSF1080, TSF1090, TSF1280 & TSF1290
sprayers include a Raven SCS 450 controller as standard equipment, and the SCS 450 system includes a
flow rate sensor in the boom plumbing. This supports
direct real-time readout of the current application rate.
For a newer sprayer, perform the rate calibration procedures from the Raven SCS 450 manual.
For an older sprayer without an SCS 450, perform the following steps.
1. Determine the nozzle rate (gpm or liters/min) at
which your chemical should be sprayed. In determining the rate, and which spray nozzles to use with
your sprayer, you need to know:
Parameter
Nozzle SpacingIn or SpacingCm
Target GpA or LpHa
Intended Mph ok Kph
Units
inch or cm
g/ac or liters/Ha
mph or kph
Nominal application psi or kg/cm2
psi or kg/cm2
2. Using this information, calculate the nozzle rate, per
nozzle, per a formula below:
GpA × Mph × SpacingIn
NozzleGpM = ---------------------------------------------------------5940
LpHa × Kph × SpacingCm
NozzleLpM = -------------------------------------------------------------60000
Your value
Data Source
from sprayer configuration (page 17)

Speed: 5.05 mph
Pressure: 30 psi
20 × 5.05 × 20
------------------------------- = 0.34
5940
Nozzle Rate = 0.34 Gallons Per Minute
Using 0.34 gpm and pressure 30 psi, you would
select a nozzle from your nozzle chart that comes
closest to providing the desired output.
3. Turn on your sprayer and adjust the pressure.
4. While operating the sprayer at desired pressure,
catch the discharge in the calibration container for
one minute. For U.S. customary units, divide the
number of ounces caught by 128 to determine gallons per minute (GpM) per nozzle. 128 fluid ounces
equals one gallon.

5. Check the area rate. You need:
the nozzle spacing (inches or cm) from the sprayer,
the intended field speed from step 4, and
the nozzle GpM or LpM from step 4.
NozzleGpM × 5940
GpA = --------------------------------------------Mph × SpacingIn
NozzleLpM × 60000
LpHa = ----------------------------------------------Kph × SpacingCm

Example:
Nozzle rate: 0.34 GpM
Speed 5.05 Mph
Spacing: 20ini
0.34 × 5940
-------------------------- = 20
5.05 × 20
Area Rate = 20 Gallons Per Acre
The above procedure assures you of accurate application in the event there is an error in the gauge, nozzle
spacing, nozzle height, tractor speed or nozzle wear.
Since all tabulations are based on spraying clean water,
conversion factors must be used when spraying solutions
which are heavier or lighter than water, or which significantly change the viscosity of water. Consult material
supplier documents for assistance.
Do not calibrate with actual agricultural chemicals. There is
extreme hazard in sample collection, and excess material
would be applied where the sprayer is parked. Instead, rely on
the Rate Controller monitoring, and observed tank consumption rate over the acres/hectares applied.
If sprayer is equipped with a Raven SCS 450 Automatic
Rate Controller, this simple calibration procedure will
also work for verifying speed and proper nozzle output.
All Raven SCS 450 Control Systems require either wheel
drive speed sensor magnets or a radar speed sensor.
Calibration procedures for the speed sensor magnets
can be found in the Raven SCS 450 manual. Calculation
procedures for radar speed sensors are included with
each radar unit dependent on make and model. Make
sure to follow initial programming instructions (Step 3) of
the Raven manual to select either
SP1-(wheel drive sensor), or
SP2-(radar sensor).

Operations
General Notes For Field Operation
1. Lubricate the sprayer as needed. See “Lubrication”
on page 71.
2. Check the tire pressure in each tire. See “Tire Inflation Chart” on page 79.
3. Securely hitch the sprayer to the tractor and fasten
the safety chain. Make sure the hitch is adjusted so
that the tank contents drain to the sump of the tank.
See “Hitching Tractor to Sprayer” on page 19.
4. Hook-Up the pump to the tractor. See “Hitching
Tractor to Sprayer” on page 19.
5. Fill the hand wash tank with clean water. Have soap
available to wash any exposed areas.
6. Check and clean, if necessary, pump, nozzles and
Whirlfilters®.
7. Check the sprayer initially and periodically for loose
bolts, pins and hose clamps. Check the hoses,
pumps, valves and fittings for leaks.
8. When transporting the sprayer,
DO NOT exceed 20 mph/32 kph and
DO NOT transport with chemical in the tank.
9. NEVER allow anyone to ride on the sprayer.
At the Field
10. Make sure all tank shut off valves are turned on.
11. Calibrate sprayer with a half tank of water only, not
chemical and water. Refer to the calibration procedures in the Application Guide.
12. Adjust the boom height required for the nozzles and
spacing to be used. (Refer to nozzle tables in the
Application Guide.)
Make sure to read the label on the chemical compound that is
to be applied. It is the law.
13. Consider how the chemical will be stored and how
you will dispose of the chemical, according to the
chemical label.
14. When calibrating, filling the tank, or working around
chemicals, wear protective clothing that covers the
body. See “Wear Protective Equipment” on page 2.
Never open a container with your bare hands.
15. When filling the sprayer, it is better to mix the chemical in the field where it is to be applied. Position the

death.
sprayer 100 feet from any well or other water source
before mixing the chemical.
16. Safely and carefully add the chemical to the sprayer
tank. By law rinsing of the used chemical container
must be repeated three times. The container should
then be punctured to prevent future use. An alternative is to jet-rinse or pressure rinse the container.
When adding chemical, remain at least 100 feet from
any water well or fresh water source. Follow chemical manufacturer’s recommendations for safe handling of chemicals.
17. Take note of adjoining crops, houses, gardens, people, etc.
18. Apply spray when the wind is 5 mph/8 kph or less.
Minimize drift. Use nozzle tips with the largest practical openings. Operate the sprayer boom at the lowest practical height and lowest practical pressure.
19. If possible, work crosswise to the wind, starting from
the downwind side of the field. This will prevent
heading directly into the chemical fumes.
20. Drive at the same speed you used in your calibration.
Refer to Application Guide. Keep your sprayer calibrated.
21. When turning at the end of a field, make sure you are
correct on the rows so that the boom will not overlap
on crop previously sprayed.
22. Check the sprayer initially and periodically for loose
bolts, pins and hose clamps. Check the hoses,
pumps, valves and fittings for leaks.
23. Check the condition of hoses and connections frequently. Release system pressure before working on
the sprayer by shutting off the pump and flipping the
individual boom section switches on the control box.
Always wear rubber gloves when making repairs or
adjustments.
24. When you are finished spraying, empty the tank and
flush the sprayer with water, including the pump, the
nozzles and the bypass line from the throttling
valves. Properly store the chemical emptied from the
tank or dispose of it per label recommendations.

otherwise unmarked selector valve. Shut-off valves are
open when the handle is parallel to the piping, and
closed when the handle is perpendicular.
Fluid is drawn from the main tank 10 via the sump 12
and passes through the 13 pump. The illustration shows
an Ace hydraulic pump, but your pump may be PTO or a
non-standard installation.
05/10/2012
Operations
39
From the pump, fluid passes through the solution Whirlfilter® 14 , which filters out or grinds up all undissolved
chemical and solid particles. The fluid then passes
through both the flow meter 15 and the bypass control
butterfly valve 16 .
The bypass control butterfly valve 16 controls how much
fluid goes to the boom. This is regulated by the Raven
SCS 450 controller. The fluid passes through the flow
meter 15 and proceeds to the 5-Way Boom Manifold 17
valves. If a boom valve is on, the fluid passes to its
respective boom section and is sprayed out the individual
nozzles. See page 83 for a layout of the boom plumbing.
The agitation is set by adjusting the agitation pressure
valve 1 while the pump is at operating speed. Refer to
Application Guide to adjust the agitation.
The optional inductor 15 provides convenient pumpdriven loading of concentrates into the main tank.
There are tank shut off valves ( 30 - 35 ) at each inlet and
outlet. Use these to prevent spills and isolate any leaks.
To operate a correctly connected hydraulic pump, push
the hydraulic lever in the “down” position. When you want
to stop the pump, put the hydraulic lever in the “float”
position.
Do not move the hydraulic lever to the neutral position while
the hydraulic pump is running. To do so may cause damage to
the hydraulic pump.

Adding Chemicals
Chemicals may be added at the tank top, or by using the
optional inductor.
1. Check that the hand wash tank is full of fresh potable
or distilled water.
2. Before you add the chemical to the tank, make sure
the tank is at least one half full of water. Never add
chemicals to an empty tank. Do not add water after
adding chemicals. Make sure the freshwater hose is
disconnected and the inlet shutoff closed.
3. Check that all shutoff and cleanout valves are set to
their “Normal” field positions. Set all boom switches
to OFF.
4. Park the sprayer so that you will be facing downwind
when adding chemicals at the lid or at the inductor.
5. Keep the spray solution away from all skin. Wear protective clothing and goggles. If the solutions comes
in contact with the body, wash off the contaminated
area with soap and water.
6. Do not smoke while handling chemicals.
Do not add chemicals until you are at the field, just prior to
spraying. When you add a chemical, follow the manufacturer’s
instructions for mixing the spray solution in order to achieve
the desired application rate.
Read the manufacturer’s label carefully before handling chemicals.
7. Store or dispose of unused chemicals as specified
by the chemical manufacturer.
8. Dispose of empty chemical containers properly. By
law rinsing of the used chemical container must be
repeated three times. Puncture the container to prevent future use. An alternative is to jet-rinse or pressure rinse the container.

If using liquid fertilizer, or any other chemical corrosive to
brass, install a Great Plains 507-034V gauge protector at the
inlet of the agitation gauge 18 . Failure to do so results in corrosion, eventually causes the gauge to fail, and chemical then
leaks under pressure from the gauge.

Always turn pump on before opening inductor shutoff valve (at
step 14). Always turn pump off after closing inductor shutoff
valve (at step 19). If the pump is not running, the tank can
drain back through the inductor. The inductor lid is vented,
and cannot prevent overflow.
Refer to Figure 28 on page 40
9. Check that the
35 inductor-outlet/tank-inlet valve
is open.
Refer to Figure 37 and Figure 38

12. Be sure the valve to the tank is open. Start the pump.
Note: The pump recirculates tank contents through a
venturi beneath the inductor tank.
13. Open the inductor lid.
3
Note: The inductor lid is vented, and the inductor may be
operated with the lid on or off.
14. Open the inductor shutoff valve 5 and inspect to
ensure that there is no back-flow of water from the
tank into the inductor.
15. Add the chemical to the inductor tank.

Boom Operations
2007+ Sprayer Hydraulics
On newer sprayers, the hydraulics use a “live” system.
The tractor hydraulic pump may be left on during sprayer
operations. This requires 5-to-8 gpm flow.
14
The console toggle switches move up and down from
center off, and are auto-return. They must be held up or
down until an operation is complete.
2006- Sprayer Hydraulics
The tractor circuit is engaged only during the operation,
and the tractor lever determines the direction of cylinder
movement.
The console switches move only up, are detented, and
remain in the selected position until moved. The switch
may be operated before or after lever movement.
Refer to Figure 40
The “live” hydraulic controls come standard to operate
with “closed center” tractor hydraulics. To be used with
an “open center” system a conversion kit must be purchased (part no. 833-427C). To install the conversion kit,
remove the plug from the end of the valve block (#14)
located on the top of the center boom section. Install the
conversion valve and coil into this location. Plug the
electrical cable into the open plug on the valve harness
and the conversion is complete.
Figure 40
Fasse Valve Block

Elevator Raising/Lowering
The elevator lifts and lowers the center section of the
boom, which raises and lowers the entire boom.
Refer to Figure 41
Lifting is performed by a hydraulic cylinder controlled by
a solenoid valve, which in turn is controlled by an updown/center-stop switch 1 on the boom control panel in
the tractor cab.
The elevator is fully raised for folding.
Lowering is by gravity retraction of the cylinder. When the
switch is toggled down, the hydraulic circuit is put in float.
Lifting and lowering speeds may differ.
Boom Height
After calibrating the sprayer for the specific nozzle to be
used at a desired pressure and tractor speed, the main
field adjustment is the boom height.
Depending on which type of nozzle is being used, set the
boom height so that the correct overlap for that specific
nozzle is achieved. If the crop canopy is taller in some

fields than others, adjust the boom height accordingly.
Refer to the Nozzle Charts in the Application Guide to
determine the height of the boom.
In center-off, the elevator stays at the current position. In
normal field operations, the elevator is set to the desired
height, and left there for the field. Typically this is about
20in (51cm) above the crop canopy.
As necessary, wings are raised and lowered at turns by
the operator, and adjusted to accommodate uneven terrain. The optional Autoboom system is useful on irregular
terrain.

Boom Tilt
Autoboom Operation (Option)
Tilt cylinders are single-acting (hydraulic retract, gravity/
float extend).
On TSF sprayers with Autoboom, the Tilt cylinders can
extend below boom level. Boom tilt at full extension is
regulated by gauge wheels with pressure transducers.
On the standard TSF sprayers, the booms are level at full
extension.
Tilt is used for storage and for lifting the booms at obstacles and turns.

Operating Pump
Rotating drive line contact can cause death. KEEP AWAY! Do
not operate without guards attached and drive line securely
attached at both ends.
To operate the PTO pumps, engage the PTO shaft slowly
at the tractor’s idle throttle position. Slowly accelerate to
the desired PTO RPM. On a 540 RPM pump, the RPM of
the PTO would be the speed at which the dead head
pressure reaches 80 PSI or 540 RPM. On a 1000 RPM
pump, the RPM of the PTO would be the speed at which
the dead head pressure reaches 80 PSI or 1000 RPM.
Never operate the PTO pump without the tractor PTO shield in
place, and the pump torque bar firmly chained in place.
1. To operate the hydraulic pump, first make sure that
the hydraulic hoses are routed correctly so that the
pump turns in the correct direction. See “Hitching
with Hydraulic Pump” on page 20.
2. To run the pump, push the hydraulic lever in the
“down” position.
3. When stopping the pump, push the hydraulic lever in
the “float” position.
Note: Do not move the hydraulic lever to the neutral position while the hydraulic pump is running. To do so
may cause damage to the hydraulic pump.
Unloading Materials
Sprayed chemicals are normally diluted in water for
application, and cannot be recaptured and stored for reuse.
Refer to Figure 45
If a small amount of material remains in the main tank at
completion of spraying, one method of disposing of it is
to apply it to the same fields. To avoid an overdose of
material, reduce the rate or further dilute the tank contents with water (but don’t use the Flush tank water for
this - reserve it for final tank flush and clean-out).
If material must be drained from the tank, rather than
applied via boom, drain at the Whirlfilter sump 1 .
1
Do not attempt to drain the main tank by removing the main
sump cap. Potentially hazardous materials will spray in random directions as the clamp is being removed.

Before operation, make sure the Flush tank is filled with
fresh, clean water.
1. Completely empty the chemical in the main sprayer
tank by turning the agitation off the last pass and
spraying the main tank contents out in the field. To
avoid overdosing, use a higher ground speed or
lower application rate.
2. Make sure all boom valves and pump are turned off.

label.
2. Flush the entire sprayer system with clean water.
3. Clean out Whirlfilter®. See “Clean-out the solution
Whirlfilter®” on page 63.
4. Circulate 3 - 5 gallons (11-19 liters) of antifreeze
(Great Plains strongly recommends the use of nontoxic recreational vehicle antifreeze) through the system including the pump, hoses and nozzles.
5. A cast iron pump must be either full of RV antifreeze
or completely empty of all liquid to avoid corrosion. If
the contents of the pump is unclear it is advisable to
drain the pump, remove it, and place it in a warm dry,
environment during the winter.
Regular antifreeze is harmful or fatal to animals and humans.
Use carefully according to the label’s instructions. We strongly
recommend the use of recreational vehicle (RV) antifreeze
which does not exhibit these harmful side effects.
6. Wash off the exterior of the sprayer thoroughly using
a safe solvent or soap and water.
7. Unhitch sprayer per steps under “Parking” on page
54.
8. Remove nozzles, disconnect the control box, and
place them indoors with the pump.
9. Change filters in the tractor cab after finished.
10. Apply grease to exposed cylinder rods to prevent
rust. Be sure to remove grease prior to next use, to

General Field Adjustments
Boom Height
Nozzle Pressure
After calibrating the sprayer for the specific nozzle that
will be used at a desired pressure and tractor speed, the
main field adjustment is the boom height. See “Boom
Height” on page 49. Depending on which type of nozzle
is being used, set the boom height so that the correct
overlap for that specific nozzle is achieved. If the crop
canopy is taller in some fields than others adjust the
boom height accordingly. Refer to the Nozzle Charts in
the Application Guide located in this manual to determine the height of the boom needed.
Another area that will need some field adjustments is the
nozzle pressure. As the tank level decreases the boom
pressure may need to be adjusted to keep the pressure
at the same magnitude for what the sprayer was calibrated for if the sprayer is not equipped with a monitor.
Watch the pressure gauge and be aware of changes in
the pressure.
EXAMPLE: A 2.5 Metercone nozzle at 20 inch spacing is
being used. From the Nozzle Chart (refer to the Application Guide), a height of 19 to 21 inches above the top of
the crop is required. If the crop is 6 inches off the ground,
the boom height should be set to 25 to 27 inches off the
ground.

Axle Wheel Spacing Adjustment
Refer to Figure 52
Axle extension can be adjusted for differing row spacings.
Do not change the fore/aft position of the axle mount, Moving
it forward may result in negative tongue weight even when
folded. Moving it aft increases positive tongue weight and
risks tire contact with boom.
1. Hitch the sprayer on level ground.
2. Measure the current wheel spacing (span) between
tread center-lines.
Note: Also measure the distance from the outer end of
each axle to the mount. Keep these equal, or the
sprayer will pull skewed.
3. Compute the difference between the current and
desired spans. Divide it by two. This is the amount to
extend or retract each axle.
4. Use a hoist or jacks at the left rear corner of the
mainframe to raise the sprayer until the tire on that
side (only) is slightly elevated off the ground.
Leave the other tire firmly on the ground to provide resistance
to lateral frame movement when adjusting an axle.
5. Loosen the bolts joining the upper and lower axle
mounts, starting with the bolts nearest the wheel
being adjusted. Loosen only enough bolts to allow
movement of the axle to be adjusted.
Figure 52
Wheel Axle Adjustment
13855
6. Slide the axle in or out to the new setting.
Do not adjust the wheel spacing wider than:
120in (305cm) on North American models, or
290cm (114in) on export models
at tire tread center lines. To do so may cause a falling axle
hazard while the sprayer is in service.
7. Secure the four bolts nearest the tire.
8. Lower the adjusted side.
9. Elevate the right corner, and repeat step 5 through
step 8.

Maintenance and Lubrication
Maintenance
Proper servicing and adjustment is the key to long life for
any implement. With careful and systematic inspection,
costly maintenance, repairs and down time can be
avoided.
Before working on, servicing or making adjustments on
sprayer, always disengage power, shut off tractor engine, make
sure all moving parts have stopped, and all pressure in the system is relieved.
▲ Always wear rubber gloves when making repairs or adjustments.
▲ Make sure all safety equipment mentioned in “Important
Safety Information” starting on page 1, are stored in an
easily accessible place but protected from potential contamination from dust or chemicals.
Sprayer/Boom Maintenance
1. After several hours of operation, check sprayer for
loose bolts, pins and hose clamps.
2. Check hoses, pumps, valves and fittings for leaks.
Always wear rubber gloves when making repairs and
adjustments.
3. Clean nozzles with an air hose with less than 30 psi.
Periodically replace nozzles.
4. Keep elevator slide pads properly adjusted. Lubricating slide pads with grease may cause dirt accumulation that jams elevator. If necessary, use silicone
spray on slide pads.
5. For lubrication points and intervals refer to “Lubrication” starting on page 71.
6. Check for proper air pressure in the sprayer tires. 22
psi is recommended for the 13.6 x 38 tires.
7. Wash sprayer and boom daily using a safe solvent,
or soap and water.
8. If equipped with a foam marker, clean the air filter on
the air pump no less than once a week, even more
often in extreme conditions.
500-641M
Equipment Cleanup
Read and follow chemical manufacturer’s instructions. Some
chemicals and cause serious burns, lung damage and even
death.
Nozzles should be cleaned with a low pressure (less
than 30 psi) air hose, and periodically replaced. Haul a
supply tank of water so cleaning of the spray tank and
applicator can be done in the field. NEVER wash tank
out in the yard or at a car wash.
Dispose of leftover chemical in the same manner
described on the manufacturer’s label of the chemical
last used in the sprayer. Rinse out the tank and spray the
rinse water on the last field that was sprayed.
Flush the sprayer with fresh water and spray the water in
the field that was last sprayed. While the sprayer is being
flushed at the field, turn the boom section switches “on”
to flush the nozzles, then turn them “off” to flush out the
bypass lines. Repeat this procedure several times.
General Information
If equipment is to be used in freezing or near freezing
conditions, protect pump and plumbing system by thoroughly draining liquid and pumping antifreeze (Great
Plains strongly recommends the use of recreational vehicle antifreeze) solution through the plumbing system.
The cast iron pump must be either full of RV antifreeze or
completely empty of all liquid to avoid corrosion. If the
contents of the pump is unclear it is advisable to drain
the pump, remove it, and place it in a warm dry, environment during the winter.
Check the condition of the sprayer hoses and clamps. Fix
all leaks by tightening hose clamps or fittings. If the pump
is leaking, refer to the pump maintenance section. If the
hoses are dragging when the sprayer is operated use
cable ties to fix their position. Make sure the hoses do
not bind or kink when the boom is folded or raised. If so,
route the hoses to prevent kinking and binding. If hoses
are damaged, replace as necessary. Periodically check
for loose bolts and tighten.
Inspect all parts of the sprayer for wear and rust. Repair
and paint parts as necessary.

Filter Maintenance
There are two filters on the sprayer. One is a canister
type that filters the water entering the tank and the other
is a Whirlfilter® that filters the chemical solution being
sprayed.
These need to be cleaned seasonally, or sooner if flow
restriction is observed.
Clean-out the solution Whirlfilter®
Refer to Figure 54
1. Fill the sprayer tank with water and turn the pump on.
2. With the pump running, slowly open the clean-out
valve and allow the grit to flow out into a bucket.
Clean out the solution Whirlfilter® only when the
sprayer tank is filled with water and no chemical has
been added.
3. Close the clean-out valve and turn off the pump.
Figure 54
Whirlfilter Clean-Out Valve
4. Dispose of the grit and water in the same manner
described on the manufacturer’s label of the latest
chemical used in the sprayer.

Shear Bolt
Refer to Figure 56
Your Great Plains sprayer is equipped with four shear
bolts 1 , two each side, to help prevent damage to the
booms. These are located at the inner boom pivot posts
at the ends of the center section. When the boom
encounters an obstruction, both bolts on that side fail,
allowing the boom to swing back.
If a pair of shear bolts breaks, replace them with a pair of
5⁄ -11 x 3in Grade 5 bolts (Great Plains part 802-160C). If
8
this size and grade bolt is not immediately available, you
may temporarily substitute metric M14x2 Class 8.8 bolts.
1
1
Using a lower grade/class bolt causes nuisance shears.
Using a higher grade/class bolt may result in serious
equipment damage.
Inspect these bolts at the start of the spraying season to
insure the bolts have not been weakened through use or
rusting.
Stock a spare nut for each spare shear bolt, as the nut
end of the sheared bolt commonly falls away and is difficult to locate.

Pump Maintenance & Repair
The Great Plains pump is designed for long life and service. Through the years there may be a need to replace
the mechanical seal or service some component of the
pump. A mechanical seal may weep slightly, but if it
starts to drip the pump will have to be disassembled.
Before disassembling the pump be sure to wash it out
with fresh water. Refer to the parts manual for the components of the pump.
Refer to Figure 57
If the pump is leaking, before removing it from the
sprayer, run the pump with adequate water in the tank to
diagnose the actual pump problem. If fluid leaks out
between the front suction housing 5 and the rear volute
housing 8 , the housing gasket may be dried out. Give
the gasket 6 adequate time to absorb moisture and
swell up. If necessary, retighten the volute housing 8 by
alternating on opposite sides until all nuts 9 are torqued
to 16 - 18 ft.-lbs. It is a good practice to apply grease to
both sides of the gasket 6 to prevent shrinkage.
If seal replacement is required:
1. Disassemble pump and clean all components.
2. Assemble the ceramic ring seat of the mechanical
seal 7 into the volute housing 8 of the pump. Make
sure the ceramic seat is positioned square into the
volute housing.
3. Clean off any grease or dirt from pump shaft 10 and
dry the shaft so the rubber bellows on the mechanical seal will adhere to the shaft properly when
assembled.
4. Bolt up the pump input bearing housing (not shown)
to the volute housing 8 using bolts 2 , 3 and 4 with
spacers (not furnished) for alignment and assembly
of the shaft seal.
5. Assemble the seal 7 without its spring, on the pump
shaft by pushing on the inside rubber portion of the
seal using water as the lubrication. The graphite seal
face should touch the white ceramic seat face. The
rubber bellows adhering to the pump shaft should
not protrude more than 1⁄16in (1.6mm) beyond the
stainless steel ring located on the impeller side of the
seal.
6. Assemble the seal’s spring and the impeller, being
careful not to move the mechanical seal that has
been positioned on the pump shaft. Torque the
impeller bolt 1 16-18 ft-lbs (22-24 N-m).
7. Remove the three bolts and spacers. Using gun
grease, lubricate the gasket 6 . Assemble the gasket
6 and suction housing 5 using bolts, flat washers
and locknuts. Torque nuts 16 - 18 ft./lbs.

Ace Pumps
The Ace pump is designed for long life and service.
Through the years, it may be necessary to replace the
mechanical seal or service components of the pump. A
mechanical seal may weep slightly, but if it starts to drip,
the pump will have to be disassembled. Before disassembly, be sure to wash it out with fresh water.
If the pump leaks, before removal from sprayer, run the
pump with adequate water in tank to diagnose the actual
pump problem.

Elevator Slide
Refer to Figure 61
The polyethylene slides on the elevator can be adjusted
to take out any side-to-side play. Periodically check the
slide pads A for wear. As the pads wear, tighten 1/2-inch
bolts B on both sides of elevator frame B until pads just
touch frame.
Tighten the slides so that there is a minimal amount of
play in the elevator.
When tightening the slides be sure to keep the elevator slide
centered in the elevator mount. If the elevator is adjusted to
one side there can be an interference.
Cycle the elevator a few times to ensure there is no binding and that the slides are sufficiently tightened.

Quad-Jet Agitators
Refer to Figure 62
The Quad-Jet agitators are two 4-port nozzle heads in
the sprayer tank. A portion of the tank outflow may be
recirculated to the quad jets to maintain a constant concentration of materials that might otherwise tend to stratify, clump, precipitate or sediment.
The agitator head is oriented at 45 degrees, with reference to the tank ends, so that the water jets are aimed at
the corners of the tank. At completion of tank flushing,
check that the ports are pointing to the corners.
If the ports have shifted, re-adjust them. If they require
frequent adjustment, remove the assemblies and check
for loose fittings.
Confined space, chemical fume and low oxygen hazards.
Review and implement the recommendations of the next section (Tank Entry) before performing any work inside the tank.

Tank Entry
Normal use of the sprayer and routine maintenance do
not require entry.
▲ You can be overcome by hazardous fumes very quickly even
in an empty tank with the lid open.
▲ Oxygen levels may be insufficient.
▲ Do not enter a tank for loading material.
▲ Do not enter a tank for unloading material.
▲ Do not enter a tank for routine cleaning.
▲ Never enter a tank without at least one trained and
equipped attendant present.
Never enter a tank for any reason unless you fully comply with applicable laws, regulations, rules, agreements,
and the instructions in this section. Where applicable
laws, regulations, rules, agreements contradict an
instruction below, do not follow that instruction.
Depending on use, the TSF sprayer tank may be or
become a “permit-required confined space” under U.S.
OSHA regulations (29 CFR 1910.146) and similar regulations, statutes, insurance agreements and local business policy. A written policy and permitting process may
be required for any tank entry.
Tank entry may be necessary in some unusual circumstances, such as:
• agitator nozzle alignment;
• clean-out nozzle repair/replacement; or,
• removal of obstructions not susceptible to fishing or
pumping out from the open lid.
Should such a situation arise, observe the following precautions:
1. Evaluate the hazards
Review the material safety data sheets (MSDS) for
any chemicals used in the tank since it was last thoroughly cleaned, and the most recent materials even
if the tank was subsequently cleaned. Retain the
MSDS information for any medical treatment that
might be required.
2. Designate or engage a team
Tank entry is never a single-person activity. At least
one attendant/observer is necessary. Give priority to
500-641M
individuals already trained in confined space operations. Designate a leader (who will not be the
entrant) with authority to terminate the activity.
3. Protect the team
Obtain the necessary safety equipment specified for
confined space exposure to those materials, paying
particular attention to respiratory support and protection. This may include contaminant detection equipment and positive ventilation to refresh air in the
tank.
4. Equip the team
At least one attendant must be equipped with communications capability, to summon outside aid in the
event that the tank worker is overcome. Equip the
entrant with a safety harness and safety line.
5. Train the team
Review the hazards. Review the procedures. Understand the use of the protective equipment. Know the
steps to take in emergencies. Practice them. Train
the observer to summon aid, and not attempt tank
entry if the entrant is overcome.
6. Secure the cart
Block the cart wheels to prevent movement.
7. Empty the tank
Follow the steps at “Unloading Materials” on page
52. If a blockage makes this impossible, use an
external pump line to remove as much material as
possible without performing a tank entry. Pump until
at least some material is exiting the clean-out port.
Leave the clean-out port open.
8. Clean the tank
Perform normal tank flushing, per “Tank and Boom
Flush” on page 53. From the outside at the walkboard, power-wash the inside of the tank. Use a mild
detergent sprayer. Rinse thoroughly.
9. Air the tank
Leave the tank lid and clean-out door open, and do
not commence work until the rinse water has completely evaporated.
10. Plan the work. Work the plan.
Postpone the work if any team members, equipment
or other resources are missing, or weather/lighting
conditions are not favorable. Terminate and evacuate
if any unexpected situations arise.
