Always check that the machine is balanced and stable, then release it from the tractor, checking again to
ensure that it is firmly positioned.
TRANSIT ON PUBLIC HIGHWAYS
When driving on public roads, always comply with the Highway Code provisions in force in the country
where the machine is being used. Pay particular attention near crossroads, underpasses, and level
crossings, when meeting other vehicles, overtaking stationary or slower vehicles. Drive near the edge of
the road and try not to hold up the traffic.
Never park the tractor and/or mower near crossroads, bends, level crossings or where the equipment
could be a danger or obstruction to pedestrian traffic.
Never drive on public highways when the implement or tractor is particularly dirty since soil, grass and
other items could drop on to the road and obstruct the normal road traffic. Disengage the PTO and
disconnect the driveline when transporting the implement.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAINTENANCE TECHNICIANS
The implement must be stationary and the tractor PTO disengaged before any work is carried out on the
Routine and extraordinary maintenance operations must be carried out in a specially prepared place
using correct and efficient tools. This place must always be kept clean and dry. There must be sufficient
space around the implement to allow work to be easily carried out. Only trained and specialised
personnel must be allowed to service the implement. Contact your nearest dealer when maintenance
work is required.
Comply with the indicated bans and procedures when servicing the implement. Never ever use gasoline,
solvents or other inflammable fluids as detergents. Use the non-flammable and non-toxic commercially
available solvents authorised by the competent authorities. Never use compressed air or highly
pressurised water to clean the implement. When this is absolutely inevitable, protect the eyes using
goggles with side guards and use the lowest possible pressure.
At the end of the job, check and inspect the implement while it is still disconnected from the tractor.
Check the cutting blades for wear. Never carry out welding operations without the manufacturer's
permission and instructions. Before welding, always detach the implement from the tractor in order to
prevent damage to the battery. Always wear a protective mask, goggles and gauntlets when welding,
lapping or grinding, hammering or drilling. The implement should be lubricated as described the
maintenance section (page 15).
Correctly remount all guards and shields that were removed during the maintenance and repair
Always operate the machine outdoors. If the machine connected to the tractor must inevitably be started
in a closed room, e.g. during tests after maintenance, always ensure that there is adequate ventilation to
prevent harmful exhaust gas from accumulating.
Carry out various manoeuvres assisted by specialized personnel in order to simulate the different work
conditions and acquire the necessary familiarity with the implement. Before starting, always check that
there are no foreign bodies such as stones, soil or other, clinging to the rotors. When the rotor turns,
such items could detach and be violently thrown notable distances. Always operate within a protective
cage, or at least near a solid wall.
Always check that no one is too near or in a potentially dangerous position if the implement is to be
operated raised from the ground, when testing for example.
Always disengage the PTO before driving the tractor to transport the implement from one place to the
WARNING DANGER PLATES AND STICKERS
Comply with the warnings on the stickers. (See picture for locations & details of warning stickers on the
machine) Failure to comply with the given instructions could cause death or serious personal injury.
Check that the stickers are always installed and legible. If this is not the case, contact your nearest
dealer or "MAJOR" in order to obtain replacements (state the code number printed on the left hand side
of each sticker when ordering).
