INSTALLING


Park Vehicle Safely

· Stop vehicle on a level surface, not on a slope

· Disengage PTO

· Engage the park brake.

· STOP the engine.

· Remove the key.

· Before you leave the operator's seat, wait for engine and all moving parts to STOP.

Avoid High Pressure Fluids


X9811

· Hydraulic hoses can fail due to physical damage, kinks, age, and exposure. Check hoses regularly. Replace damaged hoses.

· Escaping fluid under pressure can penetrate the skin causing serious injury. Avoid the hazard by relieving pressure before disconnecting hydraulic or other lines. Tighten all connections before applying pressure.

· Search for leaks with a piece of cardboard. Protect hands and body from high pressure fluids.

· If an accident occurs, see a doctor immediately. Any fluid injected into the skin must be surgically removed within a few hours or gangrene may result. Doctors unfamiliar with this type of injury should reference a knowledgeable medical source. Such information is available from Deere & Company Medical Department in Moline, Illinois, U.S.A.

Preparing The Tractor

c CAUTION: Avoid injury! · Ballasting is required for safe operation of your ATTACHMENT.

· When the ATTACHMENT is REMOVED you MUST also remove any weights that were added to the tractor

Your tractor should be equipped with 2 Tire weights for ballast. (See your John Deere dealer)

Connecting Hydraulic Hoses

c CAUTION: Avoid injury! Escaping fluid under pressure can penetrate the skin causing serious injury.

Avoid the hazard by relieving ALL pressure before disconnecting the hydraulic lines.

MAKE SURE to tighten all connections before applying pressure

NOTE: If Hydraulic Angling Kit is installed, hoses from that should be to the outside of the bracket and strapped to the lift cylinder hose.


M93533

1. Put snowblower hydraulic chute hoses (A) to the inside of bracket (B) on front hitch as shown. (This helps to prevent damage to hoses and possible injury.

·Release sleeve.

·Pull hose to check that hose end is LOCKED in coupler.

· Put dust plug cap (G) through loop on coupler and connect in plug on snowblower hydraulic hose.

· Install each snowblower hydraulic hose (H) to tractor. Match color on hose with decal on tractor platform.

If you have not installed the "Angling Kit" on your tractor:

· Install each snowblower hydraulic hose (H) to tractor. Match color on hose with decal on tractor platform.

Checking Discharge Chute Rotation

NOTE: Lable (B) is color coded with 1 is yellow, 2 is silver, 3 is black and 4 is green. Match caps to on each end of the hoses.

M88278

· Hoses connected to couplers "3 & 4": Move SCV lever (A) forward to lower attachment and rearward to raise attachment.

This SCV is also equipped with a "float" position to permit attachments such as blades or loaders to follow ground contours when lowered to operating position. Push lever (A) past valve detent to attain "float" position. Detent can be felt when moving lever forward.

NOTE: If chute does not move in the direction indicated, reverse hose location in couplers.

3. Chute should turn 90 degrees to each side. If it does not:

· STOP the engine.


M60473

· Loosen nuts (C).

· Pull cable ends tighter.

· Tighten nuts.

IMPORTANT: Avoid damage! MAKE SURE chute is facing to the RIGHT (as viewed from tractor seat) before adjusting cables in order to get proper rotation of the chute.


Checking Hydraulic Hoses and Fluid Level

Remove transaxle hydraulic fluid dip stick. Check fluid level. If necessary, add fluid. (See your tractor operator's manual for correct procedure.

c CAUTION: Avoid injury! Escaping fluid under pressure can penetrate the skin causing serious injury.

·Avoid the hazard by relieving ALL pressure before checking hydraulic lines.

·MAKE SURE to check for fittings or connections that bind or rub against each other.
