Checks made in our Factory
Your implement will have been subjected to various tests and trials both in our factory and on the dealer's
premises. This procedure ensures that operation and the necessary adjustments will be correctly carried out. In
particular, the following inspections are made:
1. The implement is checked to see that the serial number and all stickers have been affixed.
2. All points are greased as described in Fig 7.5. The oil level in the gearbox is also checked.
3. The transmission belts are checked to ensure that their tension is correct.
4. Check for oil leaks.
5. Check to see that all safety devices are installed and efficient.
6. General inspection during operation.
Inspection before use
Inspect the knives to ensure that they are free from foreign bodies. Check the implement for wear and damage.
Particularly check that the knives, the drive belts and wheels are in a good condition. Check that all nuts and
bolts are fully tightened, with particular reference to the knife bolts. Check that the oil and greases in the various
points are at the correct level, as described below. Despite the previous inspections, lubricant may have partially
spilt during transport and need topping up.
