Setup

Reviewing the Machine Requirements

  • The machine can be towed by most utility tractors equipped with hydraulics producing 26.5 to 30 L/min (7 to 8 gpm) at 13,790 kPa (2,000 psi) and flotation tires for operation over golf greens. Ensure that the tractor has adequate brakes and a drawbar hitch capacity to handle a 1587 kg (3,500 lb) trailer. Refer to the towing vehicle Operator's Manual for towing instructions and precautions.

  • The Workman vehicle requires the High-Flow Hydraulics Kit. Workman vehicles with serial numbers prior to 900000001 require the Heavy Duty Drawbar (Model 44212 or 44213) installed.

    Note: The 4WD Workman model is the best for hilly or bermed approaches to greens.

    Important: For older model Workman vehicles, do not attempt to pull the machine when loaded with material, with the standard Workman hitch. It is only rated to 680 kg (1,500 lb) and may bend or damage the cross tube axle support or rear spring shackles. Always use the Drawbar Kit for Heavy-Duty Workman Vehicles (Model 44212) or Hitch Frame and Draw Bar Kit for Heavy-Duty Workman Vehicles (Model 44213).

    Important: Do not attempt towing a loaded machine with a light utility vehicle or run-about. These machines do not have adequate brakes, suspension, or frame strength to handle the weight of the machine.

  • Trailer brakes are recommended when using the machine in hilly terrain. When fully loaded, the machine may weigh as much as 1,588 kg (3,500 lb) (GVW). This weight is higher than the recommended towing and braking limit of most utility vehicles. A trailer brake kit is available for direct installation with the Workman vehicle.

    Note: The trailer brake kit can be adapted to other vehicles with a 12 V brake light source.

    During Operation

    During Operation Safety

    • The owner/operator can prevent and is responsible for accidents that may cause personal injury or property damage.

    • Wear appropriate clothing, including eye protection; long pants; substantial, slip-resistant footwear; and hearing protection. Tie back long hair and do not wear loose clothing or loose jewelry.

    • Use your full attention while operating the machine. Do not engage in any activity that causes distractions; otherwise, injury or property damage may occur.

    • Do not operate the machine when tired, ill, or under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

    • Never carry passengers on the machine and keep bystanders and pets away from the machine during operation.

    • Operate the machine only in good visibility to avoid holes or hidden hazards.

    • Keep your hands and feet away from moving parts.

    • Look behind and down before backing up to be sure of a clear path.

    • Stop the machine, shut off the engine, remove the key, wait for all moving parts to stop, and inspect the machine after striking an object or if there is an abnormal vibration in the machine. Make all necessary repairs before resuming operation.

    • Always maintain proper tire pressure.

    • Ensure that you comply with all regulations before transporting equipment on the public roads and highways. Make sure that all required reflectors and lights are in place and are clean and visible by overtaking and oncoming traffic.

    • Reduce speed on rough roads and surfaces

    • The machine must be in the transport position (directly behind the tow vehicle) before activating the dump cycle.

    • Dumping debris can cause serious injury. Stay clear of hopper while the machine is backing up or dumping.

    • Under rare circumstances, wet, compressed grass clippings may generate heat. Always empty the hopper before storing the machine.

    • Raising and lowering the hopper door could cause injury to bystanders or pets. While operating the hopper, keep bystanders and pets away from the machine.

    • To avoid the risk of electrical shock, dump the hopper only in an area clear of overhead wires and other obstructions.

    • Never dump the hopper on a slope. Always dump the hopper on a level surface.

    • Park the machine on a level surface, empty the hopper, lower the hopper until the roller is on the ground, and chock the wheels before removing the machine from the tow vehicle.

    Slope Safety

    • Review the tow vehicle specifications to ensure that you do not exceed its slope capabilities.

    • Slopes are a major factor related to loss of control and rollover accidents, which can result in severe injury or death. You are responsible for safe slope operation. Operating the machine on any slope requires extra caution.

    • Evaluate the site conditions to determine if the slope is safe for machine operation including surveying the site. Always use common sense and good judgment when performing this survey.

    • Review the slope instructions listed below for operating the machine on slopes and review the conditions to determine whether you can operate the machine in the conditions on that day and at that site. Changes in the terrain can result in a change in slope operation for the machine.

    • Avoid starting, stopping, or turning the machine on slopes. Avoid making sudden changes in speed or direction. Make turns slowly and gradually.

    • Do not operate a machine under any conditions where traction, steering, or stability is in question.

    • Remove or mark obstructions such as ditches, holes, ruts, bumps, rocks, or other hidden hazards. Tall grass can hide obstructions. Uneven terrain could overturn the machine.

    • Be aware that operating the machine on wet grass, across slopes, or downhill may cause the machine to lose traction. Loss of traction to the drive wheels may result in sliding and a loss of braking and steering.

    • Use extreme caution when operating the machine near drop offs, ditches, embankments, water hazards, or other hazards. The machine could suddenly roll over if a wheel goes over the edge or the edge caves in. Establish a safety area between the machine and any hazard.

    Checking the Interlock System

    Caution

    Safety interlock switches are for your protection. Disconnected or malfunctioning safety interlock switches could allow the machine to operate in an unsafe manner and may cause personal injury.

    • Do not disconnect the safety interlock switches.

    • Check the operation of the switches daily to ensure that the interlock system is operating correctly.

    • If a switch is malfunctioning, replace it before you operate the machine.

    The safety interlock system has the following functions:

    • It prevents the brush from rotating when the hopper is in the raised position.

    • It prevents the hopper from being dumped when the machine is in the offset position.

    • An audible alarm sounds when dumping the hopper. Do not move the towing vehicle when dumping the hopper.

    Operating Tips

    • Before starting to sweep, survey the area to determine the best direction to sweep.

      Note: To maintain a straight line when sweeping, sight an object in front of you in the distance.

    • Always try to make a long, continuous run with a slight overlap on the return run.

    • On turf areas, the brush picks up turf cores, twigs, clippings, leaves, pine needles and cones, and small debris.

    • The machine also grooms the turf. The brush combs through and lifts the grass for a uniform cut when mowed. As it cleans, the light scarifying action increases water and pesticide penetration, thus reducing the need for renovation.

      Important: Do not make sharp turns when using the machine as damage to the turf may occur.

    • When the hopper is full, the machine no longer picks up debris as efficiently, leaving or throwing material back onto the ground.

    Dumping the Hopper

    Danger

    Tip over or electrical shock could cause serious injury or death.

    • Never dump the hopper on a slope. Always dump the hopper on level ground.

    • Dump only in an area clear of overhead wires and other obstructions.

    Important: Make sure that the machine is secured to the towing vehicle hitch with the hitch pin and the clevis pin during the dumping operation.

    Important: Ensure that the machine is directly behind the towing vehicle and in transport height before the dump sequence can be activated.

    1. Place the machine on a level surface and make sure that it is in the transport position before dumping.

    2. Press the hopper-dump button for 1 second, release the button for 1 second, and press the hopper dump button again (Figure 28).

      Note: The machine does not respond if you press the hopper dump button too quickly.
