Yes there are 3 different positions.
1 Drag mat: Tines point up: Gentle action for covering fertilizer & seed, smoothing & leveling soil surfaces, and scattering manure droppings. Excellent for grassy applications.
2 Light penetration: Tines point down & back: Stronger action for working fertilizer & seed into soil and turf, breaking up and leveling heavy soil, fluff & leveling arenas, aerating soil for faster
dry-downtime, de-thatching pasture grasses, and grooming snow-packed ski resorts.
3 Deep Penetration: Tines point down & forward: Aggressive action for loosening and breaking-up soil.
What allows my cut material to be dispersed more evenly?
The reverse rotor rotation allows the unit to disperse material more evenly by bringing the cut material up and over. While the baffles inside the deck prevent clumping of material to ensure an even distribution.
My lower 3-point arms will not attach to the lower hitch points, how can I make it work?
The lower hitch points are designed to be adjustable. They adjust in and out for many tractor configurations. There are 2 bolts that hold the hitch plates in place, on is solid while the other one allows the hitch plates to pivot up and down for easier attachment.
How sharp can I turn with my AFM with a CV Driveline?
The CV Joint allows the driveline to run at angles up to 80 degrees left or right. When turns are made with angles greater than 80 degrees this can cause vibration and ultimately damage to the driveline. Over angling the driveline will cause the CV joint to break.
Why is my mower leaving a trail of grass on the right hand side?
The issue is probably the amount of material that is being cut. The blades turn counter clockwise, so if you try to cut more material than the unit can handle, you will have a windrow of material build up on the right hand side.
The belt tension is set with a spring and an eyebolt. Tighten or shorten the eyebolt to increase belt tension or loosen or lengthen the bolt to relieve tension. The correct tension is achieved when pressure is applied to the center of the longest run and belt is able to be pressed in about ½” from static position.
The blade bolts are rh threads and the best way to remove them is by using an air ratchet or gun. If that is not an option, you need to lock the blade in place with a block of wood. When reinstalling the blades, tighten the blade bolt to 55 lbs.

Do I have to use the third line and what’s the purpose of the line?
Yes, it is recommended that the case drain line be used. If it is not, you run the risk of blowing an output seal as the spike pressures during shut down are too great. The purpose of this line is a case drain. It relieves pressure from the case of the motor when they become greater than the seals can hold.
