2-11. ROTOR OPERATING PROCEDURES (CONT).
Turn Around Procedures. The following instructions provide procedures for turning the vehicle around
during mixing operations.
Raising rotor too high above ground while it is operating can cause personal injury. When the rotor is
being operated at a high velocity, it will throw rocks and materials out from under the tailboard. To
avoid injury during rotor operation, personnel should remain well clear of the rear of the rotor assembly.
If a trench is required at the end of each mixing pass, skip steps (1) and (2) and come to a complete stop
before continuing on with step (3).
(1) As vehicle reaches end of mixing pass, push rotor boom control lever (1) forward to RAISE ROTOR
position until rotor assembly (2) begins to raise above ground.
(2) Continue to move forward until no more material is being mixed and forced from back of tailboard (3).
(3) Pull rotor control lever (4) to ROTOR OFF to disengage clutch and stop rotor assembly (2).
