Work SAFELY! 2.2. TRANSPORT AND PLACEMENT SAFETY • Be sure that conveyor is em pty before raising or lowering. • Check with local authorities regarding transport on public roads. Obey all applicable laws and regulations. • Always travel at a safe speed, never exceeding 20 mph (32 km/h). Reduce speed on rough surfaces. Use caution w hen turning corners or meeting traffic. • Make sure the SMV (slow moving vehicle) emblem and all the light s and reflectors that are required by local aut horities are in place, are clean, and can be s een by all over-taking and oncoming traffic. A lways use hazard-warn- ing flashers on tracto r/towing vehicle when transporting unless prohibited by law. • Do not allow riders on the machine, towing vehicle, tractor, or ski d steer during transport. • Stay away from overhead obstructions and power lines when operat ing and transporting. Electrocution can occur without direct contact. • Fully lower conveyor before transporting, and only raise when next to storage facility. • Review the work safety area diagram before starting work. • Attach a conveyor to to wing vehicle with a pin and retainer. Always atta ch safety chain(s). • Chock front and rear conveyor and tractor wheels before operating. • Do not raise the intake end above drawbar, conveyor upending may occur. • Be familiar with the mach ine transport hazard area. If anyone enters t he hazard area, shut down the machines imm ediately. Clear the area before restarting. • Do not transport conveyor on slopes gr eater than 20°. • When lowering the auger t he track shoe may become st uck; if this happens, do not continue to turn the winch handle counter-clockwise be cause it will dis- engage the brake mechanism and create an unsafe condition. Too much slack in the cable may also caus e the conveyor to drop suddenly.

HYDRAULIC SAFETY • Always place all tractor hydraulic controls in ne utral before disconnecting from tractor or work ing on hydraulic system. • Make sure that all com ponents in the hydraulic syst em are kept in good con- dition and are clean. • Replace any worn, cu t, abraded, flattened, or crimped hoses. • Do not attempt any makeshift repairs to the hydraulic fittings or hoses by using tape, clamps, or cements. The hydraulic system operates under extremely high-pressure. Such repair s will fail suddenly and create a hazard- ous and unsafe condition. • Wear proper hand and eye protection when searching for a high-pressure hydraulic leak. Use a pi ece of wood or cardboard as a backstop instead of hands to isolate and identify a leak. • If injured by a concentrated high-pressure stream of hydraulic fluid, seek medical attention immediately. Seri- ous infection or toxic reaction can develop from hydraulic fluid piercing the skin surface. 2.5. STORAGE SAFETY • Store the unit in an area away from human activity. • Do not permit children to play on or around t he stored equipment. • Fully lower convey or before storing.

C ONVEYOR B ELT T ENSION Adjusting your conveyor belt for proper tension helps to en sure trouble-free operation and long belt life. A conveyor be lt only needs to be tight enough to not slip on the drive roller. If the belt is too loose, it will s lip on the drive roller making a noticeable sound and slow ing the belt down. To co rrect belt slippage and set proper tension in the belt, follow the steps in the co rresponding section below. Important: If belt is slipping and adju stment bolts are fully ti ghtened, then belt must be shortened. See Section 8.3.7. Belt should not be easy to pull from the hopper trans ition sides, otherwise the belt will requir e tensioning. When conveyor is starting/operating, th e belt stretches and a pair of springs extend to take-up the stretc hed belt. See indicator on side of s-drive for recom- mended spring compression. Excessive droop between s-dr ive and hopper should be corrected. See Section 8.3.4.

C ONVEYOR O PERATING A NGLES The coneyor lift can set t he tube angle at any positi on between 12° and 30° when operating. Because the belt d oes not have roll back barrier s, the material will roll back if the angle is too st eep. Do not position the c onveyor at an angle steeper than the angle of repose of the material to be moved. See Section 10.2. for help on determining these angles. Note: The lower the angle, t he greater the capacity. 6.2.7. B ELT S PEED The best results are obtained when the input drives are set to provide a belt speed of 500 to 600 ft/min on the 1300 and 1 500 series, and 600 to 650 on the 1800 and 2000 series. Count the number of belt revolutions per minute to determine belt speed. Approximate belt length is double the length of your machine plus 3’. See packing slip or parts m anual for belt lengths. Note: Use the connector splice as a refe rence when counting belt revolutions. Contact your dealer or the factory for the appropriat e drive components to give the recommended belt speed. 6.2.8. O PERATING T IPS • Direct the flow of material into the input hopper in t he direction of the belt for the best capacity. • Attempting to move material at too steep an angle can result in excessive slide back and poor capacity. • Always listen for any unusual sounds or noises. If any are heard, stop the machine and determine the source. Correct the problem before resuming work. ̈ • An optional hydraulic lift is available for the machine. Always close the hydraulic safety ball valve when the machine is positioned. • Do not run the machine for long periods of time with- out material on the belting. It increases belt wear. • Do not support outlet end directly on the storage facility. Tie down the intake (hopper) or weigh it down to prevent upending. • To achieve maximum capaci ty, feed material onto be lt until material tube clearance is 1/2”; do not flood feed hopper. • Load materials in the loading zone indicated in Figure 6.1.
