General Safety For the safety of others and yourself, please read and follow the precautions in this operator’s manual. Pay particular attention to the following safety aspects of operating machinery. Do not ride on or allow passengers on the machine. Always use a recognised hitch pin with a safety clip to hook trailed implements on behind the tractor. When pulling trailed implements or loads, be sure to use a tractor of greater or equal weight than the combined weight of the load and trailer.

Carry a suitable fire extinguisher. A fire can ignite under certain conditions, so please take the following precautions:
After running your machine for a short time, check for defective bearings. A faulty bearing can become very hot, eventually discolouring, requiring immediate replacement.
Do not allow combustible material to accumulate inside guards or around rollers and other moving parts.
If your machine becomes blocked, stop immediately and remove the obstruction.
Be careful when operating in hot or dry conditions or on extreme fire risk days. Never operate your machine without the safety guards in place. All chains should be properly adjusted and replaced when necessary.

Release all hydraulic pressure from implements before commencing service work. Never look for suspected oil leaks with your hands or body - use a piece of cardboard instead. Any fluid which penetrates the skin will have to be removed immediately by a medical expert. Seek specialist advice on this type of injury. Never attempt to unblock equipment while it is still operating. Always disengage power take-off, hydraulics and shut down engine before removing materials, checking or servicing. Failure to follow these precautions is likely to result in serious injury. Wear proper protective clothing. Loose attire can easily be snagged by rotating machinery resulting in serious injury or death.

Pre-Service Guidelines & Settings
Prior to delivering your machine, your dealer should have completed a pre-delivery check. It is beneficial to check the following points before using the machine for the first time.
CHECK ALL WHEEL NUTS ARE SUFFICIENTLY TIGHT.
CHECK ALL TYRE PRESSURES ARE CORRECT.
CHECK ALL AXLE MOUNTING BOLTS AND NUTS ARE SUFFICIENTLY TIGHT.
THE CONVEYOR BELT should be checked for alignment and tension, and adjusted if necessary to ensure it is tracking correctly. See page 22 for information on conveyer belt adjustment.
THERE ARE SEVERAL GREASE POINTS on all machines. Check the yellow label on the side of your machine to see how many grease points there are. You should fully grease everything before running it for the first time. See page 23 for lubrication details.

Initial Setup
Power Supply
The spreader is computer controlled therefore the display will require installing within view of the operator. The power cable needs to be connected together to a 12VDC power supply capable of supplying up to 3A. Fuse is rated to 5A
Installing the Controller
Select a suitable position for mounting the bracket assembly (P/N: D/J Monitor Cradle). The braided ground wire (if supplied) should be screwed to the vehicle frame.
Black – negative Red – positive
Spreader manual-January 2017 13
Hydraulic Requirements
The spreader is fitted as standard with two 32cc hydraulic motors running in parallel, requiring an oil flow of 60 l/min @ 2500 psi. For tractors with flows below this amount, it is possible to plumb the motors in a series arrangement. In this setup, 35 l/min will suffice. Two spinner motors running in series. If the two motors are connected in series, flows higher than 35 l/min will cause the extra oil flow to bypass back to the tractor through the built in control valve. The higher the bypass flow, the higher the pressure in the system. To keep the pressures as low as possible keep the flow down to the recommended 35 to 40 l/min. Two spinner motors running in parallel. This option gives the spinners more torque and runs the spinners at lower pressures but the machine would then only operate with a minimum of 60 l/min flow. See the diagram below to change between parallel and series. If the hydraulic flow from the tractor is adjustable, reduce the flow to slightly above the point where the spinners begin to slow.
Coupling the Hydraulics
The pressure hose must be coupled to a high pressure outlet point on the tractors external system. The return hose can be coupled into the same double acting bank using the quick release coupling supplied but can give better performance if plumbed directly back to tank via a large ¾” or 1” dump connection. With the tractor at idle, engage the hydraulics. For most common setups, the right hand spinner should rotate clockwise and the left hand spinner run anticlockwise. Nothing should operate when the hydraulics are reversed. Note: 2501 Orchard, 5001, 6601 and 8301 machines have a reversible spinner circuit fitted as standard so the spinner direction can be reversed if required for bulky material such as mulch or compost. (See below for further details)

System Gain
This is required when a spreader is first setup on a tractor. It ‘tunes’ the computers response to the tractors hydraulic flow. Note:
Before running the Automatic Gain, ensure all the controlling parameters are correctly preset including decimal point being in the correct place. See page 9 for default settings and how to set them.
The machine needs to be empty
The machine does not need to be moving. Press AUTOMATIC GAIN . You may need to enter a password (this is factory set to 664). Do you need to limit the max channel output during cal? NO Operate the tractor at normal operating revs before pressing . Material will be dispensed during calibration if the machine is loaded.
Fine Tuning the System Gain
The system gain may be fine-tuned through the Channel Setup screen in SETUP Mode. Sometimes nonlinear components in the control channel causes oscillation or sluggishness at certain application rates. To fine tune, decrease the SYSTEM GAIN value slightly if the channel oscillates. Increase the SYSTEM GAIN value if the channel is sluggish.

Spinner Speed Adjustment
For most applications, adjust the spinners to 950 rpm using the spinner valve hand knob. Decrease the RPM for narrow width applications. The RPM speed can be viewed on the controller by pressing the OPERATE button. 5001-6601-8301 Other Models

Changing Spinners between Series and Parallel Flow
The Giltrap spreader has been delivered with its hydraulic system set up to operate the spinners with parallel flow, this is best suited to tractors that supply an oil flow of 60 litres per minute or more, if necessary this can be changed to series flow to suit lower flow tractors. 5001, 6601, 8301

The typical operating position for field application is AUTO. In this position, ground speed controls the dispersal rate. When ground speed is reduced to zero, all application ceases. The OFF position of the switch inhibits all product flow. Generally, the MANUAL (momentary) position is for applications at very slow speeds (i.e., startup from rest). The ground speed startup value for the MANUAL position is programmable under the ground speed configuration. Note: The controller can be locked into MANUAL by holding the master switch in the MANUAL position and pressing the RIGHT arrow key. The MANUAL position forces the controller to use the manual ground speed, which minimizes system lags when starting up from slow speeds. To exit this condition and return to AUTO mode, the master switch must be turned OFF then back to AUTO.

Parameter Descriptions
1. APPLICATION RATE. Target rate for applying the product. 2. DENSITY. Relative density of the material being applied. It represents the
weight of 1 litre of product. 3. INC/DEC STEP. The desired increment/decrement value to allow the operator
to change the application rate by a specified amount during application (on-the- go) through the field.
4. MINIMUM RATE. Minimum acceptable product application rate the system allows.
5. MAXIMUM RATE. Maximum acceptable product application rate the system allows.
6. SPREADER CONSTANT. This value represents the pulse count produced by the sensor over a given distance (refer to GROUND SPEED CALIBRATION to calculate the constant).
7. MANUAL SPEED. This is an internally generated ground speed rate whenever the Master Switch module switch is held into the MANUAL position. This value may be set to any speed within the delivery capabilities of the system. This speed is also used when GROUND SPEED OVERRIDE is selected from the Manual Overrides screen.
