Updated Mower Manual Published by AEM

The manual covers current industry practices in machine design and construction, as well as safety best practices for equipment preparation, operation, maintenance, and transport.

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers has released an updated industrial/agricultural mower safety manual in English and Spanish/English versions. Types of equipment covered include rotary, folding wing rotary, flail, boom, and sickle bar mowers, as well as disc mowers, disc mower conditioners, and self-propelled windrowers. AEM said the "disc mower" manual is now obsolete.

The association's Industrial/Agricultural Mower Manufacturers Council oversaw the manual's development; it is offered for sale at the online AEM store.

The manual covers current industry practices in machine design and construction, as well as safety best practices for equipment preparation, operation, maintenance, and transport. Enhancements include an expanded "safe maintenance" section, with a new section discussing mower blade maintenance; expanded discussion of "mower thrown objects" and "slope operation"; and use of newer safety design features and enhanced operator protection systems, according to AEM.

ISO safety symbols are incorporated where appropriate, and safety alert messages, use of the "Safety Alert symbol" and use of "Signal Words" have been revised to conform to ANSI Z535.6:2006 standards.
