SAFETY

A brief description of signal words that may be used in this manual:

CAUTION: Used as a general reminder of good safety practices or to direct attention to unsafe practices.

WARNING: Denotes a specific potential hazard.

DANGER: Denotes the most serious specific potential hazard.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

You can make your farm a safer place to live and work if you observe the safety precautions given. Study these precautions carefully and insist that those working with you and for you follow them.

Finally, remember this: an accident is usually caused by someone’s carelessness, neglect or oversight.

WARNING

Never clean, lubricate or adjust a machine that is in motion. Always lower or block the implement before performing service.

If the machine must be serviced in the raised position, jack or block it up to prevent it from accidentally falling and injuring someone.

Do not allow riders on the tractor or implement.

Use speeds and caution dictated by the terrain being traversed. Do not operate on any slope steep enough to cause tipping or loss of control.

Be sure all personnel are clear of the immediate area before operating.

Read and understand the operator’s manual and require all other persons who will operate the equipment to do the same.

Be familiar with all tractor and implement controls and be prepared to stop engine and implements quickly in an emergency.

CAUTION

Consult your implement and tractor operator’s manual for correct and safe operating practices.

Beware of towed implement width and allow safe clearance.

FAILURE TO HEED MAY RESULT IN PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH.

BOLT TORQUE

Mounting bolts and hardware

Before operating the Titan Residue Manager for the first time, check to be sure that all hardware is tight. Check all hardware again after approximately 50 hours of operation and at the beginning of each planting season.

All hardware used on the Titan Residue Manager is Grade 5 unless otherwise noted. Grade 5 cap screws are marked with three radial lines on the head. If hardware must be replaced, be sure to replace it with hardware of equal size, strength and thread type. Refer to the torque values chart when tightening hardware.

Important: Over tightening hardware can cause as much damage as when under tightening. Tightening hardware beyond the recommended range can reduce its shock load capacity.

The chart below is a guide for proper torque. Use it unless a specified torque is called out elsewhere in the manual.

Torque is the force you apply to the wrench handle or the cheater bar, times the length of the handle or bar.

Use a torque wrench whenever possible.

The following table shows torque in ft. lbs. for coarse thread hardware.

Lubricate all bearings and moving parts as assembled and make certain that they work freely.

WARNING: Never work around the toolbar/implement while in a raised position without using safety lockups.

CAUTION: The Residue manager attachments are very heavy. Pay extra attention to lifting techniques while handling and or maneuvering the opener during assembly. Failure to do so may lead to personal injury.

OPERATION/USE GUIDE/TROUBLESHOOTING

IMPORTANT: Please check the amount of travel that the planter row unit has before going to the field to plant.

NOTE: The recommended height of a level planter toolbar frame is 20”-22”. Always visually check seed spacing and depth-calibrate your equipment if necessary.

Figure A. – The planter hitch and frame are both 20” off the ground. To ensure this, visually check to see that the planter boxes are level and that the planter unit parallel arms are also parallel with the ground.

When using planter attachments located in front of the planter unit, this setting is very important.

Figure B. – The planter hitch is set too low while the planter frame remains at 20” off the ground! Notice from the illustration that the unit mounted coulter is running deeper in the ground than the planter unit. This condition can result in the formation of an air pocket below the seedbed, which will in turn dramatically decrease seed growth.

NOTE: Both illustrations are strictly for reference only. They are intended to show that proper adjustment of the hitch height is critical. Consult your planter operator’s manual for the proper height adjustment of the hitch.
