Adjusting Mower for Adverse Field Conditions
To help prevent severe injury or death to you or someone else:
Operate mower only with a tractor equipped with a complete operator enclosure.
Keep cover in place to reduce the potential for thrown objects.
Never operate mower when other people are in the vicinity. Stones and other objects can be thrown great distances by the rotating cutting blades.
Tilt cutterbar back to raise cutting knives and minimize deflection from knives.
Never tilt the cutterbar back past the horizontal position as this will lead to premature blade wear.
Make the following adjustments when operating in rough or debris ridden fields:
Tilt the angle of the cutterbar back toward the horizontal by adjusting tractor hitch center link to raise the cutting height of the knives (A).
Use a slower ground speed.
Make sure the cutting knives are free to pivot if an obstruction is hit.
