NOTEThe following pages are located in"Operator and MaintenanceInstructions."
, Section II.The title ofSection II is changed to read as follows:"Section II.MOVEMENT OFAUGER".
, paragraph 2-2.1 isadded as follows:
2-2.1. Movement to New Digging Spot, SameWorksite
. Raise the auger.
CAUTIONBefore and during lowering of thefeed ram, line up the dotted line onframe ring to marker on the rightangle drive to prevent feed ram fromdamaging engine and acousticalpanel.1
 
. Line up the dotted line on frame ring to markeron the right angle and lower the feed ram to travelingposition.
. Raise support jack and stop engine.
. Move to new digging spot.Page 2-2, paragraph 2-3.Title is changed as follows:"2-3. Movement to a New Worksite".
(1).Add the following NOTEbefore Step (1):
NOTEMake sure the digging clutch isdisengaged before starting engine.
(2).After last sentence, addthe following:The selection of the proper gear is very important to thedigging operation and the life of the digger. The gearsshould be selected with regard to the size of the augerand digging conditions. Larger diameter augers andhard digging conditions require slower operating speeds.Therefore, you should start in the highest gear usablewithout stalling the torque converter or lugging theengine.
CAUTIONLow gear or reverse should never beused with engine at full power. Ifmore auger speed is required, use2nd gear and control the speed withthe engine RPM.
(3).After last sentence, addthe following:During all operations, except actual digging, the engineshould be run as low RPM as possible. Raising the feedram, leveling, and the smallest accessories should all beoperated as close to engine idle as possible. Only thewinch should have the full power of the engine applied.
(7).Caution and note areadded before (7), as follows:
CAUTIONWhen returning into the hole, do notallow the auger to turn. This andinsufficient down pressure will causechatter and excessive vibration andmay cause damage to the drive train.NOTEWhen returning into the hole, do nothold auger bar control valve openafter the auger hits bottom. Thiswill raise the auger and may shift itoff the hole.
.Add the following:(8) When digging with extra-depth diggers, digthe first three to five feet slowly, then continue at normalspeed. This helps stabilize the auger and bar, thuseliminating bar slap inside the barrel.(9) In the event the auger gets overloaded and itcannot be lifted with the auger bar control, disengageclutch, shift the transmission into reverse, and reengagethe clutch. This will back the auger out of the hole. Usethe auger bar control to pull up at the same time. Whenthe auger is clear, disengage the clutch and shift thetransmission back to forward and continue digging.(10) If for some reason the hydraulic systemshould fail while the auger is in the hole, place thetransmission in reverse, shovel dirt into the hole, pullcontrol marked auger bar, engage clutch and the augerwill back itself off. When the auger reaches the top ofthe hole, push the elevating cylinder control, move theauger forward slowly, and the barrel will lower. By usingthe control valve , lower the barrel to travel position.(11) For efficient digging, the bit point andcutting teeth should be kept sharp at all times. If harddigging is encountered, such as sandstone, limestone,frozen ground, etc., the auger speed should be reducedand a slight down pressure put on the auger to allow theauger to cut its way.
CAUTIONExcessive speeds and downpressure cause undue wear on augerteeth and may damage the drive trainif the auger should hang up.
.Add the following: (3)When setting and pulling poles or using the winch forany type of heavy work, position the kelly bar vertical,place the auger with bit on the ground and apply somedown pressure. Jacks should be used, if so equipped.
WARNINGNEVER SUSPEND A POLE ORHEAVY OBJECT WITH THE WINCHAND THEN MOVE THE TRUCK.ALWAYS KEEP THE BOOMVERTICAL AND THE AUGER ON THEGROUND.
(4) When using the winch to drag an object tothe digger from a distance, use the snatch blockprovided at the top of the final drive. The polesetterboom should be used as a crane.
. Use and Stowage of Support Jacks.(PAGE 63,Sheet 1 of 1)(1) Position truck where hole will be dug.
