Slasher Safety Operation Video
The following Safety Operation Video has been provided to train and instruct you in safe practices for the operation of an industrial rotary slasher. This video in conjunction with the slasher and tractor operator manuals and warning stickers will ensure safe operation of this implement and mitigation of accidents. All operators and maintenance personnel, including supervisors, must watch this safety video and read the operators manual before operating, maintaining or instructing use of a slasher.
Make safety your responsibility
Although this video covers many of the situations you may encounter on the job, it is your responsibility to become thoroughly educated with the operation of your mowing equipment and be able to recognise any potential hazards that can occur when operating a rotary slasher. It is your responsibility to carry out your own risk assessment and take necessary measures to ensure the health and safety of yourself and others around you.
If you do not understand any of the instructions in this video or the operator’s manual, or if you have any further questions concerning safety of operation, please contact your supervisor, dealer or Ben Wye Engineering and Design.
Shortening a PTO Shaft
PTO shafts come in standard lengths so they can be adjusted to all tractors. This means you may have to shorten the PTO shaft to suit your tractor.
The slasher PTO shaft is telescopic to allow it to vary in length as the slasher is raised and lowered. If the shaft is too short, it will come apart when the slasher is lowered. If the shaft is too short, it will need to be replaced with a longer one. If the shaft is too long, the shaft can bottom out causing serious damage to the tractor or implement. This can be rectified by cutting the shaft down.
View our instructional video below detailing how to correctly shorten a PTO shaft.
If you do not understand any of the instructions in this video or if you have any further questions concerning safety of operation, please contact your supervisor, dealer or Ben Wye Engineering and Design.
