Safety Rules Read these safety rules and follow them closely. Failure to obey these rules could result in loss of control of unit, severe personal injury or death to you, or bystanders, or damage to property or equipment. The triangle in text signifies important cautions or warnings which must be followed.
CONTROL FUNCTIONS The information below briefly describes the function of individual controls. Operating the tractor and dozer require the combined use of these controls and additional controls whose operation is described in the tractor Operator’s Manual. A. Angling Control Lever The angling control lever is used to change the angle of the dozer blade.
Operation Checks Before Starting 1. Refer to the Maintenance & Adjustments sections of this manual and perform any needed service. Also, refer to the tractor Operator’s Manual and perform any required service. 2. Remove any objects from the work area which might interfere with dozing activity.
Changing Blade Angle See Figure 1 on page 3 for location of Controls. 1. Fully raise the attachment lift by depressing the REAR attachment lift pedal (B, Figure 1). 2. Push the angling control lever (A, Figure 1) forward to rotate the blade counterclockwise.
Maintenance MAINTENANCE Schedule For Normal Care Care Required Clean debris from dozer blade. Lubricate dozer blade. WARNING To avoid serious injury, perform maintenance on the tractor or dozer blade only when the engine is stopped, parking brake is set and all moving parts have stopped.
Locate the problem you’ve encountered in the chart below. Check the possible causes one at a time in the order list- ed. Correct any problems that are found and operate the snowthrower to see if you have eliminated the problem. To avoid serious injury, perform maintenance on the tractor or dozer blade only when the engine is stopped, parking brake is set, and all moving parts have stopped.
