Maintenance - Lack Of Maintenance Causes Guard Damage
- Failure to perform recommended PTO driveline guard maintenance.
- Failure to regularly inspect PTO driveline guards that do not turn
freely on their support bearings. Repair as needed.
- Failure to regularly inspect for PTO driveline guard damage, that
increases operator exposure to rotating members, and prevents easy
telescoping of guard tubes. Repair as needed.
- Failure to inspect and replace safety warning decals that are no
longer clear or legible.
Check the owner’s manual for maintenance recommendations
and repair instructions. As the equipment grows older be
certain to perform suggested maintenance based on years or
hours of usage. Whenever possible store implements in
buildings where they are protected from damaging
environmental conditions. Use genuine OEM replacement parts.
