Installing and Synchronizing Disks and Converging Disk/Cones

IMPORTANT: Each disk must be installed at right angles to the adjoining disk. This is known as synchronization.

Replace disk-to-cutterbar-locking cap screws after removing and installing five times.

NOTE: Disk life can be extended by moving a disk to a location of opposite rotation. (See INTERCHANGING DISKS in this section.)

1. Clean mounting surface of foreign materials and install spacer plate (A) (if removed).
