Normally, the machine is used with the frame straight for flat blading. Articulate it to counteract side
draft from heavy blade loads. Turn the front of the tandems toward the heel of the blade.
If the wheels start to spin, turn the front of the tandems away from the heel of the blade. This will reduce
the width of the cut and reduce the load on the machine.
In normal leveling work, deliver the material to the outside of the rear wheels. This will maintain a
smooth surface for the rear wheels.
Spread the loose material over the surface until it is
During left-hand leveling, right lift cylin-
der will be vertical and left lift cylinder
will be slightly angled.
Use the centershift cylinder to position the circle
approximately 8 in. (200 mm) to the right. Move the
centershift lock pin lever to the INDEX and RUN
