To keep the sod cutter in good operating condition, perform
•Keep blade sharp; a sharp blade cuts cleaner, faster
and more uniformly and places less load on the machine. Sharpen cutting edge on bevel or top side only.
•Keep drive belt at proper tension and free of oil and dirt
at all times.
•Check engine oil level and air filter element daily.
WARNING
BLADE SHARPENING – Wear the appropriate personal
protective equipment when sharpening blades. Use correct
tools for sharpening or when servicing machine.
•Check for loose bolts and connections.
•All grease fittings are pressurized type. Use a good
grade Lithium Base Grease or equivalent. Grease
eccentric arms sparingly every 4 hours of service, all
others daily. Wipe off all grease fittings before and
after each greasing (there are a total of 8 grease fittings).
•To make sure the chain on the front drive wheels is
tight, you will need to remove the chain guard to
check this. If tightening is required, loosen nuts and
bolts on the 3/4” pillow block bearings and push the
bearings toward the back of the sod cutter until chain
is tight. Make sure both bearings go back evenly to
keep jackshaft running even with the frame. After doing this, retighten nuts and bolts on the bearing and
replace the chain guard.
