Some
attachments
such
as the
mid-mount
rotary
having
a little
load
clearance
may hit against
the end of the ramp when
loading
onto the truck
bed. Place a wood
block
on the bed close to the ramp so they
will not hit
against
the end of the ramp
when
loading.
1. Use a loading
ramp
that
is strong
enough
to support
the combined
weight
of the tractor,
its attachments
and the operator.
The loading
ramp
must
be long enough
so that its slope
is 15O or less.
2. Use reverse
gear
1st or 2nd to back the tractor
up the ramp.
NOTE:
If you feel that
you cannot
accurately
judge
angle
of the ramps,
we suggest
that you obtain
an inclinometer.
This type of gauge
is available
at most
hardware
stores.
RAMP

If the engine
stalls
during
loading,
immediately
depress
the brake

then
let the tractor
roll down
the ramp
by slowly
releasing
the brake
