You get a three quarter socket. Remove the bolt from the end of the rake.
Remove the outside bolt, one at a time, keep the rake in position.
So, you’re replacing the two end bolts with four inch long, half inch diameter bolts to take a three quarter inch socket.
But, the bolts on both sides are the same. They’re both a four inch long 1/2 inch diameter.
The tubes are gone, just with the long end coming towards the outside of the rake. It can’t be assembled backwards because there are holes in both sides of the pin for attaching to this.
Again, the second four inch long, 1/2 inch bolt. Now, you should be out of half inch, four inch long bolts.
With the square mount hole, followed by the slot for adjustment in the middle and then on this side, we have the arm that carries the disc with the disc face facing in. And this is how it will mount then to the attachment arm. This could be assembled backwards. So, it is critical that all these parts align properly.
Open then in an inch and an eighth socket to mount this.
These go on with lock nuts, no washers.
Again, you need a large adjustable wrench for inch and an eighth, inch and a sixteenth.
Using the inch and a half long, half inch carriage bolts, we’ll install two, one in the slot and one in the square hole.
Then install the arm over those two bolts. Using washers and half inch lock nuts, take a three quarter inch wrench and tighten.
Ensure that the carriage bolt head is firmly seated in the slot.
The two carriage bolts should be tightened by hand they’re field adjustable. You just need a three quarter inch wrench, and if you loosen the slot mounted bolt, you can control the pitch of the disc then to make it more or less aggressive. The disc is mounted with four inch and a half long, half inch carriage bolts. The dish facing away from here on. The bolt heads go towards the inside or towards the inside of the dish. Place a washer on the back, and then a lock nut.
You’ll need a three quarter inch wrench to tighten these as well.
This is the attachment of the site gauge to the front of your Force. Using the three eighths bolts you’ll need a nine sixteenth wrench to tighten the nuts and washer to the bottom.
It sits on top. It’s in slots for adjustment. And I would put it in the center of the slot to begin with.
Attach the sight gauge fixed to the front of the Force.
Once the fixed arm is installed, bring the sliding tube with a hole, and search it through the end of the square tube.
This is then locked in place with the wing bolt. To place the marker rod in the approximate center of the disc, place the marker rod in the notched hole as shown, and slide the rubber washer to the height desired, then move the whole rod out to the slit or notched section here, and place that flush with the front of the tube.
When you’re ready to stow it again for transport, simply loosen the the wing bolt, slide this assembly in, remove a marker rod and slide it through the cap into the end of the tube.
When using your edger assembly, first remove your VibraFlex so that you can have proper clearance when working in your field. When installing the disc assembly pitch the finish rake back to being nearly level in order to provide clearance for the disc.
What you’ll do is raise this arm up with the rake pitch level and insert into the tube.
Then insert the half inch bed pin into the hole, picking up on the tube, the pins dropping. I saw the clip.
The last step before used is to extend your arm out, locking it in place with the thumb washer, installing your marker rod with rubber washers top and bottom and aligning it to the disc.
