Height Adjustments

SEEDER/MULTIPURPOSE ASSEMBLY:

The seeding/multipurpose blades are used for cutting grooves for over-seeding and can also be used for verticutting grasses. To set the height properly place unit on the lawn surface and adjust the wheel height up. Figure 4. Adjusting the wheel height up lowers the blades.

For Seeding:

The proper height setting for over-seeding is approximately 1/4” into the ground. Adjust the wheel height up approximately one notch. If set deeper, grass seed being applied may not germinate.

For best results, over-seed in two passes of 1/2 application rate at right angles orin a crisscross pattern. Water heavily immediately after seeding then lightly for 10-14 days keeping soil moist.

For Slicing or Aerating:

The proper height setting for slicing or aerating is 1/2” to

3/4” into the ground. Adjust the wheel height up one or two notches.

For crawling grasses such as Zoysia, Bermuda, Bahia, etc. raise the wheels only one notch. Crawling grasses should not be slicing too deeply. For single strand grasses like Bluegrass or Rye, aerate in perpendicular directions for more even slicing. For example, slice in a

North-South direction on the first pass, switching to an

East-West direction on the second pass.

As the seeder/multipurpose blades wear they may be rotated to provide a new cutting edge. The wheels may be raised to allow the blades to penetrate deeper into the ground.

RAKE BLADE ASSEMBLY:

Normal height is set by placing the Turf rake on a hard surface making sure one satellite shaft is at dead bottom. Adjust the wheels so the raking fingers on the bottom shaft just touch the ground. DO NOT set the fingers so that they will penetrate the as this will counteract the centrifugal force of the fingers and prevent it from raking properly.

With repeated use, raking side of the fingers will begin to wear. To give the fingers a new square raking edge, remove the end plates (Changing Shaft Assembly) and turn the entire shaft assembly 180º and reattach.

NOTE: Use Pro-Lock (medium strength) on the 7” pulley on the main shaft.

To prolong the life of the main shaft, extra holes are provided. If the circular holes holding the satellite shafts become distorted, rotate all four satellite shafts to the next set of holes.

SLICING BLADE ASSEMBLY:

The slicer blade assembly is recommended for slicing, verticutting or aerating when a thinner blade is preferred. This is the commended blade for use on golf course greens. To set the height properly place unit on the lawn surface and adjust the wheel height up. Adjusting the wheel height up lowers the blades.

The proper height setting for slicing or aerating is 1/2” to

3/4” into the ground. Adjust the wheel height up one or two notches.

For crawling grasses such as Zoysia, Bermuda, Bahia, etc. raise the wheels only one notch. Crawling grasses should not be sliced too deeply. For single strand grasses like Bluegrass or Rye, aerate in perpendicular directions for more even slicing. For example, slice in a

North-South direction on the first pass, switching to an

East-West direction on the second pass.

As the slicer blades wear they may be rotated to provide a new cutting edge. The wheels may be raised to allow the blades to penetrate deeper into the ground.

• Any warning decal that becomes illegible should be replaced immediately.

• Do not operate equipment without shield(s) in place.

Do not make any adjustments or perform any maintenance while the engine is running.

• Thoroughly clean all blades inside and out when raking is completed and apply a light coat of oil to prevent rust on blades.

• Always lubricate rake each time it is put into service.

Wipe off lubrication fittings before and after each lubrication. The number of lubrication fittings vary depending on model of rake.

• Keep drive belt(s) free of oil and dirt.

4. Remove the spark plug and squirt a small quantity of engine oil into the cylinder. Turn the engine over a few times to distribute that oil.

5. Lubricate all lubrication fittings.

To put rake into operation after an extended storage:

1. Check for loose parts and tighten if necessary.

2. Check for cracked or broken blades and replace.

HYDRAULIC SYSTEM

To keep the hydraulic system in working order, there are a few steps needed to take place. If synthetic oil were used we would suggest a full synthetic oil such as

Mobil 1 15W50, Quaker State Full Synthetic 5W50, or a similar oil.

Oil viscosity is very important to transmission life.

For optimum performance the oil viscosity should maintain a viscosity of 13 cSt [70 SUS]. The minimum oil viscosity to prevent component wear is 9 cSt [55

SUS]. These Viscosity requirements are for an oil temperature of 110 degrees Celsius [230 degrees

Fahrenheit] Typically; standard SEA 20W-50 multiviscosity motor oils will meet this requirement. If the operating temperature is elevated then synthetic oil with greater viscosity index, or more viscosity at elevated temperatures, may be needed to meet viscosity requirements.

System Start-up: (purging air from system). Factory

Fills unit with SAE 20W-50 multi viscosity motor oil.

This will need to be checked when setting up with instructions below

.

At system start-up, several things need to be accomplished to ensure a properly running system.

1. Fill the BDU case and expansion level and ensure they do not empty during the following procedure.

10. Adjust neutral position.

11. Adjust forward control stop to recommended axle speed.

12. Adjust reverse control stop to recommended axle speed.

13. If axle speed is not achieved ensure linkage allows proper movement of transmission control.

14. If transmission control lever is rotating fully but recommended axle speed is not achieved, repeat start-up procedure.

15. Refill expansion tank oil to recommended level.

2. Start engine and increase throttle to at least 2/3 speed.

3. Open bypass valve by depressing bypass plunger and holding.

4. Adjust control linkage such that transmission control is stroking full forward.

5. Move and hold control in forward for 3 seconds; repeat two additional times.

6. Close bypass valve be releasing bypass plunger.

7. With engine still at same speed, repeat step 5.

8. Move control to neutral.

9. Check engine speed. Adjust to recommended maximum engine speed.
