Figure 5. Should adjustment be required, loosen generator mounting screws and generator adjusting screw. Pivot generator outward from engine until proper tension is obtained. Release constant speed hold pedal with heel of left foot before again attempting to change speed with the speed control pedal, or stopping tractor. (See Figures 6 and 7.)

 

NOTE

Never pry out generator with a long heavy bar or tool as this could result in premature bearing failure.

7. Tighten the generator mounting screws and generator adjusting screw. Make sure all bolts are torqued securely.

RUN-IN PERIOD

Before operating the tractor at full load, it should be operated at one-half throttle for approximately onehalf hour with no load applied. After the first halfhour of operation, run the tractor at full throttle with no load applied for an additional one-half hour.

Attach a light load to the tractor. Operate the tractor with light load for a period of three hours at full throttle. The tractor is now ready for normal load operation.

NOTE

Always operate the engine at full throttle for best attachment performance.

OPERATION

Before driving the HUSKY, the operator should be familiar with the location and functions of all controls.

Place transmission lever in PARK position. Start the tractor and allow it to warm up.

Placing the transmission lever in PARK position locks the speed control pedal in its centered or neutral position, to prevent use of speed control pedal when selector lever is in PARK.

Figure 7

CAUTION

Do not use constant speed hold pedal for a foot rest at any time.

Depress foot brake (Figure 4, Reference 6) and place transmission lever in DRIVE position. ALWAYS DEPRESS FOOT BRAKE PEDAL BEFORE MOVING TRANSMISSION LEVER INTO "NEUTRAL", "PARK" OR "DRIVE" POSITION TO AVOID CREEPING.

 

 

Release brake pedal, and slowly apply pressure to the speed control pedal with toe of right foot for forward motion, or if reverse motion is desired, slowly apply pressure to speed control pedal with heel of right foot. (See Figure 7.)

The hydraulic lift lever can be maneuvered while vehicle is at rest or in motion. Push lever to raise and pull back on lever to lower attachments. When the lever is released, it will automatically return to NEUTRAL position and hold, except when in the FLOAT position. Pull lift lever all the way back to lock in FLOAT position. The FLOAT position can be used when the operator wants the attached implement to follow ground contours. (See Figure 9.)
