Safety and Instructional Decals


Safety decals and instructions are easily visible to the operator and are located near any area of potential danger. Replace any decal that is damaged or missing.



Assembling the Trailer

Parts needed for this procedure:

Trailer bed1
Tongue assembly1
Axle hub2
Wheel assembly2
Trailer ramp1
Bolt (3/8 x 2-3/4 inches)2
Nylon Locknuts (3/8 inch)2
Carriage bolts (3/8 x 1 inches)8
Locknuts (3/8 inch)8
Lug nuts8
Hinge rod1
Cotter pins2
  1. Mount the tongue assembly to the mounting bracket on the underside of the trailer bed with 2 bolts (3/8 x 2-3/4 inches) and 2 locknuts (Figure 1).

  2. Using the 4 carriage bolts and 4 locknuts, mount an axle to the top side of the mounting brackets on each side of the trailer bed as shown in Figure 2.

  3. Mount a wheel assembly to each axle hub with 4 lug nuts (Figure 2) and tighten the nuts to 80 ft-lb (108.5 Nm).

  4. Deflate the tires to 5 psi (34 kPa).

  5. Mount the trailer ramp to the rear of the trailer bed with the hinge rod and 2 cotter pins (Figure 3).

    Note: Apply a light coating of grease to the hinge rod prior to assembly.

  6. Pivot the trailer ramp upward and hook the ramp latch into the hole in the top of the wheel guide (Figure 3).

Adjusting the Wheel Toe-in

To prevent premature wear of the tires, the wheels should have 0 to 3 mm (0 to 1/8 inch) toe-in.

Adjust the wheel-toe in as follows:

  1. Draw a line around the center of each tire.

  2. Measure the center-to-center distance at the wheel hub height, at the front and rear of the tires (Figure 4).

  3. Adjust the position of the axle mounting brackets so that the front center-to-center distance is about 3 mm (1/8 inch) less than the rear center-to-center distance (Figure 2).

Adjusting Trailer Tongue

Move the spacers to the top or bottom of the tongue until the trailer is parallel to the ground or until it fits the tow vehicle hitch (Figure 5).


Loading the Trailer

  1. Unhook the ramp latch from the wheel guide and lower the ramp to ground.

  2. Pivot the first set of wheel rods upward.

  3. Remove the baskets from the machine to be towed and disengage the reel drive.

  4. Move the throttle to the slowest position and slowly drive the machine onto the trailer until the transport wheels contact the trailer stops (Figure 1).

  5. Shut off the engine and engage the parking brake.

  6. Pivot the first set of wheel rods downward behind the transport wheels (Figure 1).

  7. Repeat this procedure if you are hauling 2 machines.

    Note: Use the first set of wheel rods as the stop for the second machine (Figure 6).

  8. Pivot the trailer ramp upward and hook the ramp latch into the hole in the top of the wheel guide (Figure 3).

  9. Store the baskets in the tow vehicle.

Operating Tips

  • Ensure that the trailer is properly connected to the tow vehicle before loading or unloading the machines to prevent the tongue from suddenly moving or flipping up.

  • The trailer adds extra towing weight to the vehicle. Drive the vehicle safely.

    • Do not drive the machine on highways or public roads.

    • Always slow the tow vehicle when approaching and while making a turn.

    • Always slow the tow vehicle when driving in unfamiliar areas or over rough terrain.

    • Always slow the tow vehicle when changing the direction of travel or preparing to stop.

    • Always slow the tow vehicle when turning or driving on slopes.

    • Do not make sudden or sharp turns. Do not suddenly change direction of travel on an incline, ramp, grade, slope, or similar surface.

    • Always adjust the tow vehicle speed to allow for existing ground conditions, such as wet slick surfaces, loose sand or gravel, and/or low-visibility conditions, such as dim or bright lighting, fog, mist, or rain.

    • Be especially careful when driving a heavily loaded vehicle down an incline or slope. Drive the vehicle up and down the face of the slopes, inclines, or grades whenever possible. Do not drive across the face of a slope if at all possible. There is a risk of upsetting the vehicle, which can result in serious injury or death.

  • Before backing up, look behind you and ensure that it is clear of people and objects. Back up slowly and watch the trailer movement closely.

  • Use extreme caution and slow speed when backing up the trailer and tow vehicle.

  • Watch out for traffic when near or crossing roads. Always yield the right of way to pedestrians and other vehicles.

  • If the trailer begins to vibrate abnormally, stop the tow vehicle immediately. Shut off the tow vehicle engine. Repair all damage before towing.

  • Before servicing or making any adjustments to the trailer, do the following:

    • Stop the tow vehicle and engage the parking brake.

    • Shut off the tow vehicle engine and remove the key.

  • Keep all fasteners tightened securely. Replace any parts removed when servicing or making adjustments.
