Operating and Transporting Forage Wagons
Always use a locking hitch pin. A safety chain is strongly recommended for road travel.
Shields on PTO drivelines and other moving parts must be maintained in good condition.
Never enter an operating forage wagon to clean or service it. Gruesome entanglements have resulted.
Prior to transport, secure the PTO driveline in the transport position. Raise and secure the crossconveyor extension if so equipped.
Forage wagons should always have a clean, bright SMV emblem for road transport, day or night.
During hours of darkness, they must have two red reflectors or lights. Lights and flashers on wagons are highly recommended.
Allow no extra riders on tractor, drawbar, or wagon.
For safer stops with loads, equip running gear with brakes, particularly for hill and road transport.
Towed loads without brakes should not exceed 1.5 times the weight of the tractor for road transport.
When making turns during highway travel, be aware of other vehicles in front and to the rear.
While traveling on highways, pull off the road safely to allow other vehicles to pass and prevent long lines of vehicles.
