2.1INTENDED USE

The sprayer in this series is built for agricultural use. The materials used are resistant to normal chemical products used in agricultural spraying (or herbicides) at the time of construction.

Any other use is not allowed and the manufacturer is not responsible for any damage caused by aggressive, dense or sticky chemicals.

THE USE OF THE MACHINE BY PERSONS UNDER 18 YEARS OF AGE IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN

The use of liquid fertilizers in suspension is not allowed, while the use of the same in a solution is possible if requested when the machine is ordered from Unigreen and in any case changing some of the parts described in the handbooks of the regulator, such as the manometer (stainless steel), the nozzles (large diameter ceramic) and eliminating the fine mesh filters to prevent blockages.

2.2PROHIBITED USE

Using the machine with the following products is strictly forbidden:

=Paints of any kind and type

=Solvents or thinners for paints of any kind and type

=Combustibles or lubricants of any kind and type

=LPG or gas of any kind and type

=Flammable liquids of any kind and type

=Liquid foodstuffs, whether for animals or humans

=Liquids containing granules or consistent solids

=Mixtures of various incompatible chemical products

=Liquid fertilizer or manure in suspension with lumps and/or that is particularly dense

=Liquids with a temperature of over 40°C

=Any products that aren’t suitable for the specific use of the machine.

2.3USING CHEMICAL PRODUCTS

All pesticides or herbicides can be dangerous to humans and the environment if used erroneously or inadvertently.

Therefore we recommend that only suitably trained persons should use these products (license) and in any case only after having carefully read the instructions on the container.

2.3.1 REGULATIONS FOR THE USE OF CHEMICAL PRODUCTS

Some recommendations for avoiding damage and accidents:

 

= Keep the machine in a suitable, protected place with no access for children or

 

strangers

 

= Handle the products with care, wearing rubber acid-proof gloves, gogglesface

 

masks or filtering helmets, overalls made of water-repellent fabrics or TIVEK and

 

boots made of rubber or similar materials.

 

= If chemical products or mixtures of product come into contact with the eyes or

 

are swallowed consult a doctor immediately, taking the label of the product with

 

you.

 

= Wash all clothes that come into contact with the chemical, whether diluted or

 

undiluted, thoroughly before using them again.

 

= Don’t smoke, drink or eat when preparing or spraying the mix or near or in the

 

fields treated.

 

= DON’T ENTER THE TANK: the residues of a chemical product can cause

 

poisoning and suffocation.

 

= When spraying, respect safe distances from residential areas, water courses,

 

roads, sports centres and public parks or paths.

 

= Thoroughly wash the containers of plant protection products using the relevant

 

accessories, rinsing several times with clean water. The liquids used for washing

 

can be used for treatment.

 

= Collect the washed containers and send them to the relevant collection

 

centres. Never dispose of them in the environment and don’t use them again for

 

any other purpose. It is good practice to knock a hole in the bottom of the tins so

 

they can’t be used again.

 

= When you have finished spraying, wash the sprayer thoroughly, diluting the

 

residues with a quantity of water at least 10 times that of the residues, spraying

 

the resulting mix over the treated field.

 

2.4 RECOMMENDATIONS

 

a) Refer to the present handbook for the use and maintenance of the frame, tank,

6 unigreen

auto-levelling systems, elevators, mechanical and hydraulic herbicide booms,

spray booms and hose reels.

Refer to the enclosed handbooks for the use and maintenance of the pump and pressure regulator and any accessories or motors.

b)Please contact the agent in your zone, the nearest authorised workshop or UNIGREEN S.p.A. directly for any repairs the user feels they aren’t capable of performing alone. (see point 8.5)

c)Due to the complexity of the equipment and the variety of technologies used (mechanical, hydraulic, oil-pressure and electrotechnical) operators must not dismantle or modify the equipment. All of the relevant operations must be performed by specialised personnel, authorised by UNIGREEN S.p.A.

2.4.1 TAKING PRECAUTIONS AGAINST FIRE HAZARDS

Don’t use naked flames or heat sources near the machines.

The sprayers are made with many materials that derive from petroleum: tanks, tubes, pipes and hoses, wheels and plastic parts; furthermore the presence of oils of various nature and residues of chemical products make them potentially flammable.

2.5WEATHER CONDITIONS

We recommend spraying in the early hours of the morning or late in the afternoon, avoiding the hottest time of day.

Never do any spraying if it’s raining or rain is forecast.

Don’t spray in strong wind or in any case, in winds above 3/5 m/second.

If you have to spray in windy conditions, use relatively low pressures to obtain quite large drops that are less sensitive to drifting (being heavier the wind has less effect). There are also special anti-drift nozzles available from UNIGREEN S.p.A.; for information, please contact our offices.

2.6MACHINES DESIGNED TO BE USED ONLY WITH CLEAN WATER

There are versions of the machines designed only to be used with a hose reel for washing with cold clean water.

These machines cannot be used with chemical products as they don’t have some of the devices or accessories that are needed to use these products safely. These machines are identified by the word “washing” on the CE plate.

2.7DRIVING ON THE ROAD

The CAMPO series atomisers are not specifically designed for road use. Nevertheless, many models are also available in the version homologated for road traffic with the tank empty.

You should check with your local reseller on the correct couplings to use and use tractors that meet the regulations in force.

3CHARACTERISTICS AND SPECIFICATIONS

This handbook is valid for tractor-mounted sprayers to be used with:

a) horizontal booms per herbaceous cultivations (herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, foliage nutrient, etc.)

d)treatments with hand lances with or without a hose reel

e)hand lances for washing with or without a hose reel

The UNIGREEN S.p.A. sprayers are identified by the CE plate (FIG. 2) bearing one of the marks indicated in the tables of the allowed fittings (TABLE N° 12 pag. 33-34). The tables above contain a summary of the indications envisaged for the markings.

3.1TABLES OF FITTINGS ALLOWED

Table N° 12 let you identify the version of your machine indicating the basic equipment and all the possible fittings available (optional).

You can also find the other fittings allowed or other versions to meet your requirements in the future.

THE FITTING DEFINED IN TABLES N° 12 (pages 33-34) SHOULD BE CONSIDERED BINDING FOR THE VALIDITY OF THE DECLARATION OF CONFORMITY.

Other fittings or setups of basic components and optionals should be considered unsafe and therefore are not covered by the guarantee and aren’t UNIGREEN’s responsibility.

The same goes for fittings realised with components or accessories that aren’t original UNIGREEN parts.

UNIGREEN accessories can easily be identified by the label with the yellow background “ORIGINAL UNIGREEN ACCESSORY”

4USER’S INSTRUCTIONS

4.1DESCRIPTION OF THE MACHINE

The sprayers are made of a structural steel frame and a polyester tank reinforced with fibreglass or high-density polyethylene.

The frame is painted with special fired epoxy paints or, depending on the versions, hot galvanised. The tank is easy to empty and this makes it possible to use the machine even on hillsides.

The pumps are generally diaphragm pumps but in some cases fitted with pistons.

The accessories that can be used to complete the sprayer include: lifting devices, self-levelling devices, mechanical or hydraulic herbicide booms, jets and nozzles and this makes the UNIGREEN sprayer a highly qualified and efficient piece of equipment.

8unigreen

4.1.1 WORK STATIONS

The use of this machine does not envisage an operator standing constantly near the same, the operator normally sits in the cab of the tractor.

During calibration and maintenance operations the operator will be working near the machine at ground level (for all the calibration and maintenance operations refer to the relevant chapters).

In case of operations that request the entry to parts of the machines located at 1,5 mt. height ,it is advised to use a ladder at rule; the ladder shall be positioned steady on a flat ground not yielding and with the machine at a standstill and braked.

In some special models with controls above 1.5 metres there is a platform to make these operations easier.

This platform must only be used with the machine stopped.

NOTE: Put the ladder back into the correct operating position after use, securing it with the hook; make sure not to pinch or crush your hands during these operations.

4.1.2 HAND WASHING TANKS

The sprayers are supplied with an auxiliary hand-washing tank with clean water and a hand tap.

This tank must always be supplied with water and the inside must be clean so you can wash any parts of the body that come into contact with the chemical product used.

Never drink the liquid inside.

4.2PRELIMINARY CHECKS

When you receive the machine, check that it is complete and no parts are missing.

If there are any damaged parts, inform your local reseller or UNIGREEN directly in good time.

When the machine is delivered, make sure you ask:

a)that the machine is delivered with all of its parts fitted and that the fitting meets the requisites in table N° 12 pag. 33-34. (This procedure is necessary because for reasons of space during transportation the machine is often delivered partially dismantled).

b)that it is tested in your presence in particular checking:

=that the suction filter and the inside of the tank are clean and free of work residues.

=that the connections are made correctly following the basic layout (FIG. N° 11).

=that the hose clips and all the unions and connections are tightened properly.

=that any herbicide boom is mounted in the centre.

=that all of the protective covers are fitted solidly to the machine, in particular the protective cover of the power-takeoff of the pump.

=Check the proper tyres inflation (pressure are indicated on tyres)

4.3TRANSPORTING AND MOVING THE MACHINE

Every time you have to lift the machine, before starting the operation, always make sure the lifting gear and the relevant tools and equipment (cables, hooks, etc..) are suitable for lifting the load and check the stability of the same.

It is forbidden to unhook and move the machine with the tank full.

The dry weight of the machine at the maximum level of fitting and with all the accessories allowed is stamped on the nameplate (Fig. 2); use slings and lifting gear with a adequate load-bearing capacity.

Don’t stand the sprayer on soft ground or steep slopes.

Never lift or move the sprayers by hand if there is liquid in the tank. The machine will weigh more and the movement of the liquid can change the centre of gravity causing uncontrolled movements.

We recommend using slings as shown in the figure, the lifting points to use on the machine are indicated with the relevant symbol.

Don’t lift the machine with the forks of a forklift truck because the machine can tip over due to the overhanging weight of the booms.

Don’t pass or stand under the machine when it is being lifted.

This symbol identifies the clean water tank on the machine used to wash your hands
