Please read this operating
manual before first commissioning.
Keep it in a safe place for
future use.
Reading the instruction
Manual and following it should seem to be inconvenient and superfluous as it is not
enough to hear from others and to realize that a
machine is good, to buy it and to believe that now
everything should work by itself. The person in
question would not only harm himself but also
make the mistake of blaming the machine for possible failures instead of himself. In order to ensure
success one should enter the mind of a thing,
make himself familiar with every part of the machine and get acquainted with how it's handled.
Only in this way could you be satisfied both with
the machine and with yourself. This goal is the
purpose of this instruction manual.

Structure and function
The following section provides information on the machine structure
and the functions of the individual components.
Fig. 17
The AMAZONE ZG-B bulk fertiliser spreader is a fertiliser
spreader with hoppers from 5,200 l to 8,200 l in volume.
It is used for spreading
•
damp fertiliser (spreading discs of lime) and
•
granular fertiliser (spreading discs OM).
In the municipal sector, bulk precision broadcasters are used for
•
lime treatment in forests
•
applying sand on golf courses
•
in winter service
The conveyor belt (Fig. 17/1) delivers the spreading material (Fig.
17/2) from the hopper (Fig. 17/3) to the spreader units.
The spreading discs (Fig. 17/4) are driven by the PTO shaft with
540 rpm., 720 rpm.or 1000 rpm.
The freely adjustable hopper outlet determines the amount of material
entering the spreading unit and thus the amount of material to be
spread. The spreader units distribute the spreading material.
The steep wall of the hopper and the wide floor conveyor belt mean
that no material is left in the hopper even if damp fertiliser is used.

Uncoupling the PTO shaft
WARNING
Danger from crushing or impact if there is insufficient clearance
when uncoupling the PTO shaft!
First uncouple the machine from the tractor before uncoupling the
PTO shaft from the tractor. This will ensure the necessary clearance
for safe uncoupling of the PTO shaft.
WARNING
Danger from burns on hot components of the PTO shaft!
Do not touch components of the PTO shaft that have become hot
(particularly clutches).
•
After decoupling the PTO shaft, place it on the holder provided.
This protects the PTO shaft from damage and dirt.
Never use the supporting chain of the PTO shaft to suspend the
uncoupled PTO shaft.
•
Clean and lubricate the universal joint shaft if it will not be used
for an extended period.
1. Uncouple the machine from the tractor. Also refer to the chapter
"Uncoupling the machine", page 108.
2. Drive the tractor up to the machine, leaving a clearance of approximately 25 cm between the tractor and the machine.
3. Secure the tractor against unintentional starting and rolling
away, see the chapter "Securing the tractor against unintentional
starting and rolling away", from page 101.
4. Pull the latch of the PTO shaft off the universal joint shaft of the
tractor. Observe the operating manual supplied with the PTO
shaft when uncoupling the PTO shaft.

Configure all settings of the AMAZONE ZG-B bulk fertiliser spreader
according to the information in the setting chart.
All common kinds of fertiliser on the market are spread in the
AMAZONE spreading hall, and the setting data measured during this
process is incorporated into the setting chart. The types of fertiliser
listed in the setting chart were in perfect condition when the measurements were taken.
It may be necessary to adapt the information in the spreading table
due to variations in fertiliser condition from:
•
Effects of the weather and/or unfavourable storage conditions
•
Fluctuations in the physical fertiliser properties, even within the
same type and brand
•
Changes in the spreading properties of the fertiliser
may mean that deviations from the information in the setting chart are
necessary when setting the desired spread rate or working width.
We cannot guarantee that your fertiliser will have identical spreading
properties to that tested by us, even if it is the same kind and brand.
We expressly disclaim liability for consequential damages resulting
from spreading errors.
110
ZG- B BAG0003.9 09.14
Adjustments
Configure all settings with the utmost caution. Deviations from the
optimum setting can have a negative effect on the spreading pattern.
The settings listed in the setting chart are intended solely as guide
numbers, as the spreading properties of the fertiliser can change,
making different settings necessary.
Only carry out adjustments and other work on the centrifugal broadcaster when the motor is switched off and the hydraulic system is
depressurised. Remove the ignition key, secure the vehicle to prevent
it from starting up inadvertently or rolling.
Wait until all moving machine parts have come to a complete standstill before making adjustments or carrying out other work on the machine.
For unknown kinds of fertiliser or a general check of the set working
width, you can easily check the working width using the mobile fertiliser test rig (optional).
If you cannot definitively assign the fertiliser to a kind listed in the
setting chart

Determining the setting value using a sliding ruler
The shutter position shown on the sliding ruler is valid for a forward
speed of 10 km/h at a belt speed on gearbox position I.
•
For other forward speeds, calculate the shutter position as follows:
Shutter (X km/h) =
Shutter (10 km/h) x X km/h
10 km/h
•
For belt speed II, divide the determined shutter position by two.
1. Determine the bulk density [kg/l] of the fertiliser by weighing a
precisely filled litre gauge.
2. On the sliding ruler, push the marking K to the desired spreading
quantity [kg/ha] A.
3. Read the spreading volume C from the bulk density B determined.
4. On the back of the sliding ruler, cover the spreading volume D
with the red line 2 and read the shutter position for the desired
working width E.
5. If required, convert the shutter position for another forward
speed or belt speed II.

2. Move the main shutter to the desired value of the scale using the
hand lever.
3. Tighten the locking bolt again.
The setting figures of the setting chart may only be considered as
standard data. The flowing properties of the fertiliser may change and
thus require other settings. Therefore always carry out a spread rate
check before commencing the spreading work.
The determination of the shutter slide position with the aid of the calculating disc rule is carried out after a spread rate check. This way
the varying flowing properties of the fertiliser are already considered
when determining the shutter slide position.
The optimum spread pattern requires the maintenance of constant
PTO shaft rev. speed and operating speed (except for ground wheel
drive and AMATRON 3) during the spreading operation.
For the ground wheel drive the ratio between operating and belt
speed is always the same. To determine the shutter slide position
following the setting chart refer to column 12 km/h-.
We recommend that you carry out a spread rate check with this shutter slide position.

Setting the spreading discs OM
8.3.1
Setting the working width
•
There are different spreading disc pairs for the various working
widths.
•
The existing tramline system (distance between the tramlines)
determines the selection of the required spreading disc pair.
•
The working widths are adjustable within the working ranges of
the respective Omnia Set (OM) spreading disc pairs (however,
there may be deviations for the spreading of urea).
•
The type of fertiliser and desired working width determine the
setting of the pivotable spreading vanes.
The specific spreading properties of a fertiliser influence its
throwing range. The pivotable spreading vanes allow the adjustment of these specific spreading properties of a fertiliser, so
that the respective fertiliser can be spread over the desired
working width.

Spreading disc pair
10 – 16 m
18 – 24 m
24 – 36 m
OM 10 – 16
OM 18 – 24
OM 24 – 36
The primary factors that affect the spreading properties are:
•
Granule size
•
Bulk density
•
Surface condition
•
Humidity
We therefore recommend the use of a well granulated fertiliser by a
renowned manufacturer and also checking of the working width setting using the mobile fertiliser test rig.
WARNING
Danger of ejection of parts of the quick-release screw connection in event of incorrect tightening of the wing nut after the
working depth is set!
After setting the working depth, always check whether you have
manually retightened the wing nut of the quick-release screw connection.

Adjusting the spreading vane positions
Fig. 86
The spreading vane position depends on:
•
•
the working width and
the type of fertiliser.
Two different scales, designed so as to make it impossible to confuse
them, are arranged on each spreading disc for precision setting of the
individual spreading vane positions (Fig. 86/1 and Fig. 86/2).
•
The shorter spreading vanes (Fig. 86/3) are assigned the scale
(Fig. 86/1) with values from 5 to 28; the longer spreading vanes
(Fig. 86/4) are assigned the scale (Fig. 86/2) with the values
from 35 to 55.
ο
For the short spreading vane (Fig. 86/3), read off the set
value on the read-off edge (Fig. 86/5).
ο
For the long spreading vane (Fig. 86/4), read off the set
value on the read-off edge (Fig. 86/6).
•
Swivelling the spreading vanes to a higher scale value (Fig. 86/1
or Fig. 86/2) increases the working width.
•
The shorter spreading vanes primarily distribute the fertiliser in
the centre of the spread pattern, while the longer vanes primarily
distribute it to the outer area.
Use the setting chart for adjusting the spreading vane.

Adjust the spreading vanes as follows:
1. Turn off the spreading-disc drive.
2. Secure the tractor against unintentional starting and rolling away,
see the chapter "Securing the tractor against unintentional starting and rolling away", from page 101.
3. Wait until rotating spreading discs come to a complete standstill
before adjusting the working width.
4. Set the desired working width by swivelling the short and long
spreading vanes in one after the other.
4.1 Turn the spreading disc so that the respective wing nut under the spreading disc can be released without problem.
4.2 Release the respective wing nut.
4.3 Refer to the setting chart for the short and long spreading
vanes.
4.4 Swivel the respective spreading vane so that you can read
off the required setting on the scale on the read-off edge.

Use of the machine
WARNING
Danger of catching or entanglement and drawing in or entrapment of loose clothing by moving elements (rotating spreading
discs)!
Do not wear loose-fitting clothing. Tight clothing reduces the risk of
unintentional catching or entanglement and drawing in or entrapment
by moving elements.
WARNING
Risk of contusions, cutting, catching, drawing in and knocks
through insufficient stability and tipping of the tractor and/or the
connected machine.
Drive in such a way that you always have full control over the tractor
with the attached machine.
In so doing, take your personal abilities into account, as well as the
road, traffic, visibility and weather conditions, the driving characteristics of the driver and the connected machine.
DANGER
Risk of the implement tipping over when the steering drawbar is
pushed in; particularly on very uneven or sloping terrain!
With a loaded or partially loaded implement with tracking steering
drawbar, there is a risk of tipping over when performing a turning manoeuvre on a headland at high speeds, due to the shifting of the centre of gravity when the steering drawbar is pushed in. The risk of tipping over is especially high travelling downhill on sloping terrain.
Adapt your driving technique accordingly and reduce speed when
performing a turning manoeuvre on a headland, so that you are in
complete control of the tractor and implement.

Checking the outlet-openings of the guide chute before every operation
Spreading material can build up inside the outlet
openings (Fig. 99/1) of the guide chute to become too narrow to achieve a correct spread
pattern. To achieve a correct spread pattern
ensure that both outlets are clean. Therefore
before every operation of the bulk spreader
check or clean the outlets as follows
Danger!
Disengage tractor PTO shaft, stop
tractor engine and remove ignition
key.
1. Remove guide chute. (Fig. 99/3).

Filling the machine
WARNING
Danger of breaking during operation, insufficient stability and
insufficient tractor steering and braking power on improper use
of the tractor!
Comply with the maximum load of the connected machine and the
approved axle and drawbar loads of the tractor. If necessary, drive
only with a partially filled hopper.
WARNING
Couple the bulk fertiliser spreader to the tractor before loading.
•
Remove residues or foreign bodies from the hopper before filling
with fertiliser.
•
Make sure that the charging sieve is always closed before you
fill the hopper. Only a closed charging sieve prevents clumps of
fertiliser and/or foreign bodies getting into the hopper and blocking the agitator.
•
Let the floor belt run for a short period to reduce friction.
•
It is essential to observe the safety instructions from the fertiliser
manufacturer. Use appropriate protective clothing as necessary.

Spreading operation
Spreading disc OM
•
The spreading vanes and swivel blades are made of especially
hard-wearing stainless steel. However, the spreading vanes and
swivel blades are wearing parts.
•
The type of fertiliser, times of use and spread rates influence the
service life of spreading vanes and swivel blades.
•
Several spreading materials such as kieserite, Excello granules
and magnesium sulphate may cause higher levels of wear on
the spreading vanes. We supply spreading vanes with higher resistance to wear for these spreading materials (optional).
•
The technical condition of the spreading vanes and swivel
blades is essential for uniform lateral distribution of the fertiliser
on the field (i.e. forming strips).
Spreading disc OM
WARNING
Danger of ejection of parts of the spreading vanes / swivel
blades, caused by worn spreading vanes / swivel blades!
Every day, at the start and end of spreading work, check all spreading
vanes for visible damage/defects. Refer to the criteria for the replacement of wearing parts in the chapter "Replacing spreading
vanes", page 151.
WARNING
Danger from materials or foreign objects that are thrown from or

Recommendation for working in headlands
Prerequisite for accurate work at field boundaries
and edges. The first tramline (Fig. 102/T1) is
generally placed half a tramline's width from the
edge of the field (see page 138). A tramline of
this type is laid in the same fashion in the headlands.
Bearing in mind the notes given (page 138),
drive in the first tramline around the field in a
clockwise direction.
On account of spreading towards the rear, for
accurate distribution on headlands the following must be noted:
Open and close the sliders for forward (tramlines
T1, T2, etc.) and return trips (tramlines T3, etc.)
at different distances to the field edge.
•
•
Fig. 102
Open the slide gate after entering the tramline at point P1 (Fig. 103), when the
spreader discs are at distance X from the
tramline of the headland.
ο
X = 1 working width
with working widths > 18m.
ο
X = 1.5 working widths
with working widths < 18m.
Close the slide gate before leaving the
tramline at point P2 (Fig. 103), when the
spreader discs are located at the level of
the first tramline of the headland.
Fig. 103
Using the method just described prevents fertiliser loss and over or underfertilising and thus is an environmentally friendly way of working.

Before refitting the bearings, lightly grease the bearing carrier
and then refit all parts in the reverse order. Carefully fit parts with
press fits and pipe bushings so that they are not twisted or damaged.
The bearings, the wheel hub cavity between the bearings and
the dust cap must be smeared with grease before fitting. The
grease should fill approximately a quarter to a third of the space
in the fitted hub.
8. Fit the axle nut and adjust the bearing and brake. Finally, carry
out a function check and an appropriate test run and rectify any
detected faults.
The wheel hub bearing must only be greased with BPW special

Belt conveyor with automatic belt control
One property of belt conveyors (Fig. 112/1) is that
they give way under load on inclines such as on
sloping terrain or if they are loaded on one side
only. The belt conveyor then runs outwards.
One-sided belt conveyor running is prevented by
the automatic belt control in AMAZONE bulk
fertiliser spreaders ZG-B.
The conveyor belt is tensioned in the floor belt
with automatic belt control between the drive
drum
(Fig. 112/2) and the pulley (Fig. 112/3).
While the drive drum is secured rigidly in the
floor belt, the pulley can turn around the swivel
axle (Fig. 112/4). The belt conveyor is also guided between two control rollers (Fig. 112/5), which
are connected to the pulley by a control frame
(Fig. 112/6).
Fig. 112
If the belt conveyor runs outwards due to a onesided load, the control rollers follow this movement. Consequently, this causes the pulley to
turn around the swivel axle. As a result, the distance between the pulley and the drive drum
increases on the side toward which the belt conveyor is moving.
The larger distance causes the belt conveyor to
return to the middle and continue to settle down
in the middle.
Tensioning the belt conveyor:
The belt conveyor is tensioned with pretension in
the floor belt for stable, even belt movement. If
the belt conveyor runs unevenly in any circumstance, the belt conveyor should be retensioned
on both sides as described below:
1. Loosen the rear lock nuts on both sides
when viewed in the direction of travel (see
arrow) (Fig. 113/1) by turning them anticlockwise.
2. Turn the nuts on both sides evenly to the
left when viewed in the direction of travel
(see arrow) (Fig. 113/2).
3. Tighten the lock nuts.
The adjustment travel of the nuts (Fig.
113/2) must be equal on both sides of
the floor belt. Do not turn either nut
(Fig. 113/2) more than a ½ spanner
turn. Tighten the lock nuts and check
whether the belt conveyor is driven
evenly again.

Axle and brake
For optimum brake performance with a minimum of wear, we recommend that the brakes on the tractor are balanced with those on the
machine. After the service braking system has been run in for a suitable period, arrange for the brakes to be balanced by a specialist
workshop.
Have the balancing process carried out before these empirical values
are reached if you discover excessive wear on the brake pads.
To avoid problems with the brakes, adjust all vehicles in accordance
with EC Directive 71/320 EEC.
WARNING
•
Repair and adjustment work on the service braking system
should only be carried out by trained specialist personnel.
•
Special care is required for welding, torch cutting and drilling work in the vicinity of brake lines.
•
Always carry out a braking test after any adjusting or repair
work on the braking system
General visual inspection
WARNING
Carry out a general visual inspection of the brake system. Observe and check the following criteria:
156
•
Pipe lines, hose lines and hose couplings must not be externally damaged or corroded.
•
Hinges, e.g. on fork heads, must be properly secured, easy
to move, and not worn out.
•
Ropes and cables
ο
must be properly run.
ο
may not have any visible cracks.
ο
may not be knotted.
•
Check the piston stroke on the brake cylinders, and adjust
as necessary.
•
The air reservoir must not
ο
move around in the tensioning belts.
ο
be damaged.
ο
show any outward signs of corrosion damage.

Cleaning, maintenance and repairs
Checking the brake drum for dirt
1. Unscrew the two cover plates (Fig. 114/1)
on the inside of the brake drum.
2. Remove any dirt and plant debris which
may have entered the drum.
3. Refit the cover plates.
CAUTION
Dirt entering the drums may be
deposited on the brake pads (Fig.
114/2) and thus appreciably reduce
brake performance.
Risk of accident.
If dirt is discovered in the brake drum,
the brake pads must be inspected by
a specialist workshop.
For this to happen, the wheel and
brake drum must be removed.
Fig. 114
Checking play on wheel hub bearings
1. To check the play on wheel hub bearings,
raise the axle until the wheels turn freely
(Fig. 115).
2. Release the brake.
3. Place a lever between the tyre and the
ground and check the play.
If bearing play can be detected:
Adjust the bearing play
1. Remove the dust cup or hub cap.
2. Remove the split pin from the axle nut.
3. Tighten the wheel nut while turning the
wheel at the same time until the wheel hub
is lightly braked as it turns.
Fig. 115
4. Turn the axle nut back to the next available
split pin hole. If it is already over a hole, turn
it to the next hole (max. 30°).
5. Fit the split pin and bend it slightly open.

the brake pad must be replaced.
Reinsert the rubber tab.
Brake adjustment
Depending on use, the wear and function of the
brakes must be constantly checked and, if necessary, readjustment must be carried out. Readjustment is required after using approx. 2/3 of the
max. cylinder stroke for emergency braking. To
do this, jack up the axle and secure it against
unintended movement.
Fig. 117
Adjusting the linkage adjuster
Move the linkage adjuster by hand in the pressure direction (Fig. 119). If the free travel of the
long-stroke diaphragm cylinder pressure rod is
max. 35 mm, the wheel brake must be readjusted.
Adjustments are made using the readjustment
hexagon bolt on the linkage adjuster. Set free
travel "a" to 10-12 % of the connected brake
lever length "B",
e.g. lever length 150 mm = free travel 15 – 18
mm.
Fig. 118
Adjusting the automatic linkage adjuster
Basic settings are made in the same way as for
the standard linkage adjuster. Readjustment
occurs automatically at a cam rotation of approx.
15°.
The ideal lever position (which cannot be altered
owing to the attachment of the cylinder) is approx. 15° before perpendicularity, and the same
in the actuation direction.

ZG- B BAG0003.9 09.14
Cleaning, maintenance and repairs
Checking the function of the automatic linkage adjuster
1. Remove the rubber stopper cap.
2. Slacken the adjusting screw (arrow) with a
ring spanner
(Fig. 119) approx. ¾ of a turn anticlockwise. There must be free travel of at
least 50 mm for a lever length of 150 mm.
3. Actuate the brake lever several times by
hand. This should cause a smooth automatic readjustment; it should be possible to
hear the coupling engaging and, on the
back stroke, the adjusting screw should turn
clockwise slightly.
4. Refit the stopper cap.
5. Lubricate with BPW ECO_Li91 special high
melting point grease.

the direction of travel.
3. Turn the regulating screw back until a braking effect can no longer be felt when the
wheel turns forwards.
4. Reinstall the tension lever system for ramp
equipment and adjust it so that it is free
from play.
5. As a test, apply the parking brake slightly
and use the same braking torque (in the direction of travel) to check the wheels on the
left and right.

WARNING
Risk of infection through the high pressure hydraulic fluid of the
hydraulic system entering the body!
•
Only a specialist workshop may carry out work on the hydraulic
system.
•
Depressurise the hydraulic system before carrying out work on
the hydraulic system.
•
When searching for leak points, always use suitable aids.
•
Never attempt to plug leaks in hydraulic hose lines using your
hand or fingers.
Escaping high pressure fluid (hydraulic fluid) may pass through
the skin and ingress into the body, causing serious injuries!
If you are injured by hydraulic fluid, contact a doctor immediately. Risk of infection!
WARNING
Danger of unintentional contact with hydraulic fluid!
Please take the following first-aid measures:
•
Following inhalation:
ο
•
Following contact with the skin:
ο
•
Rinse eyes for several minutes under running water, holding the eyelid open.
Following ingestion:
ο

Wash off with plenty of soap and water.
Following contact with the eyes:
ο
•
No special action required.
Seek medical assistance.
165
Cleaning, maintenance and repairs
•
When connecting the hydraulic hose lines to the hydraulic system of connected machines, ensure that the hydraulic system is
depressurised on both the drawing vehicle and the trailer.
•
Ensure that the hydraulic hose lines are connected correctly.
•
Regularly check all the hydraulic hose lines and couplings for
damage and impurities.
•
Have the hydraulic hose line checked at least once a year by a
specialist for proper functioning.
•
Replace the hydraulic hose line if it is damaged or worn. Only
use original AMAZONE hydraulic hose lines.
•
The hydraulic hose lines should not be used for longer than six
years, including any storage time of maximum two years. Even
with proper storage and approved use, hoses and hose connections are subject to natural ageing, thus limiting the length of
use. However, it may be possible to specify the length of use
from experience values, in particular when taking the risk potential into account. In the case of hoses and hose connections
made from thermoplastics, other guide values may be decisive.
•
Dispose of old oil in the correct way. If you have problems with
disposal, contact your oil supplier.
•
Keep hydraulic fluid out of the reach of children!
•
Ensure that no hydraulic fluid enters the soil or waterways.
12.11.1 Labelling hydraulic hose lines
The assembly labelling provides the following information:

12.11.2 Maintenance intervals
•
After the first 10 operating hours, and then every 50 operating hours
1. Check all the components of the hydraulic system for tightness.
2. If necessary, tighten screw unions.
Before each start-up:
1. Check hydraulic hose lines for visible damage.
2. Eliminate any scouring points on hydraulic hose lines and pipes.
3. Replace any worn or damaged hydraulic hose lines immediately.
12.11.3 Inspection criteria for hydraulic hose lines
For your own safety and in order to reduce pollution, ensure the following inspection criteria.
Replace hoses if the respective hose fulfils at least one of the following criteria:
•
Damage to the outer layer up to the ply (e.g. scouring points,
cuts, cracks).
•
Brittleness of the outer layer (crack formation of the hose material).
•
Deformations which do not match the natural shape of the hose.
Both in a depressurised and pressurised state or when bent (e.g.
layer separation, bubble formation, pinching, bends).
•
Leak points.
•
Installation requirements not complied with.
•
Life span of 6 years has been exceeded.
→
The date of manufacture of the hydraulic hose line on the assembly is decisive for determining these six years. If the date of
manufacture on the assembly is "2004", then the hose should
not be used beyond February 2010. See also "Labelling of hydraulic hose lines".
Common causes for leaking hoses / pipes and connection pieces
include:
•
missing O-rings or seals
ZG-B BAG0003.9 09.14
•
damaged or badly fitting O-rings
•
brittle or deformed O-rings or seals

Cleaning, maintenance and repairs
12.11.4 Installation and removal of hydraulic hose lines
Use
•
only genuine AMAZONE replacement hoses. These hoses stand
up to chemical, mechanical and thermal loads.
•
hose clips made from V2A for fitting hoses, as a rule.
When installing and removing hydraulic hose lines, always observe
the following information:
•
Ensure cleanliness.
•
Always install the hydraulic hose lines to ensure the following in
all operational positions
ο
There is no tension, apart from the hose's own weight.
ο
There is no possibility of jolting on short lengths.
ο
Outer mechanical influences on the hydraulic hose lines
are avoided.
Use appropriate arrangements and fixing to prevent any
scouring of the hoses on components or on each other. If
necessary, secure hydraulic hose lines using protective covers. Cover sharp-edged components.
ο
The approved bending radii may not be exceeded.
•
When connecting a hydraulic hose line to moving parts, the hose
length must be appropriate so that the smallest approved bending radius is not undershot over the whole area of movement
and/or the hydraulic hose line is not overtensioned.
•
Fix the hydraulic hose lines at the specified fixing points. There,
avoid hose clips, which impair the natural movement and length
changes of the hose.
•
The coating of hydraulic hose lines is not permitted.
12.11.5 Mounting hose fittings with O-rings and sleeve nuts
1. First, tighten the sleeve nut manually.
2. Then, use the spanner to tighten the sleeve nut at least ¼ to a
maximum of ½ turn.
You must not tighten screw unions with O-rings as tight as those with
compression rings.
If you tighten the sleeve nut tighter than specified, the cone-shaped
screw union may break (in particular at the welded pin on the hydraulic cylinder).
