Set the blade horizontal at the desired depth of the
Lean the wheels to the left to overcome the side
Tip the blade to the best position for the material
being worked. Start with the top of the moldboard
slightly ahead of the cutting edge.
Under good conditions, work the material from side

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 moldboard.
If the wheels start to spin, turn the front of the tandems
away from the heel of the moldboard. 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.
