Agricultural mower safety manual upgraded

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) has extensively updated its industrial/agricultural mower safety manual– both the English only 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. (The AEM "disc mower" manual is now obsolete.)
The AEM Industrial/Agricultural Mower Safety Manual was developed under the direction of the association’s Industrial/Agricultural Mower Manufacturers Council. AEM safety manuals outline common sense "do's and don'ts" in clear language and an easy-to-follow format, and they are a convenient and cost-effective way to provide in-house safety training.
The manual covers current industry practice in machine design and construction as well as up-to-date industry 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.
