GENERAL TILLER SAFETY

Operation of the Rotary Tiller requires special
efforts on your part to ensure your safety and the
safety of others. Know these requirements before
you operate the Rotary Tiller.
To avoid injury or tiller damage, do not allow
anyone to stand on or ride on the tiller.
To avoid injury from rotating parts or thrown
objects, do not stand or allow others to stand
near the tiller while it is operating.
Clear the area of all debris before beginning
tiller operation.
Operating the tiller in the fully raised position
may exceed the maximum angle of the
driveline.
To avoid tiller damage and possible loss of
control, do not add weight to the top of the
tiller.
To avoid injury to yourself and others; do not
leave the tiller in the raised position when
unattended.
KEEP CHILDREN AND PETS AT A SAFE
DISTANCE WHEN OPERATING THE
ROTARY TILLER.
Never wear loose clothing when operating the
rotary tiller. Loose clothing may become
entangled in rotating parts or become hooked
on controls leading to injury or damage to
property.
Never leave the tractor operator's seat when
the tractor is in motion; or while the Power
Take Off (PTO) is engaged.
Before getting off the tractor, always:

wait for the PTO to stop turning
-
then lower the tiller to the ground
To avoid personal injury or equipment
damage, never attempt to clean or adjust the
tiller with the tractor engine running.
