10.Clean the tail axis and add grease

Cycle: check and confirm every day during the operation, and check once a week during the non-work period.

Important: Clean the dust of pesticides stuck on the tail shaft and apply grease. Check the two bearings of the fixed tail shaft and it is recommended to clean them daily and apply grease. At the same time, pay attention to the loss of the copper sleeve.

11. Check the variable distance structure of the tail shaft

Cycle: check and confirm every day during the operation, and check once a week during the non-work period.

Key points: Clean the torque converter structure, especially the bearings. It is recommended to apply grease after cleaning.

12. Check tail synchronization

Cycle: check and confirm every day during the operation, and check once a week during the non-work period.

Key points: Fix the spindle and slightly rotate the tail shaft. If there is a sliding phenomenon, the tail timing wheel is not fixed enough and needs to be fixed again.

13. Check if the whole machine servo lever is clean

Cycle: check and confirm every day during the operation, and check once a week during the non-work period.

Key points: Clean the steering gear and tie rods, including the main screw steering gear, the pitch rod and the swash rod, the throttle servo and the tie rod, the tail servo and the tie rod. Pay attention to whether the connecting part of the tie rod is loose or deformed. Use two fingers to gently tighten the fixing screw to see if it is loose.

Pay attention to the wear condition and gap size between the ball and the ball. When the power is not connected, shake the steering arm by hand to observe whether the stroke is smooth and whether there is slipping. After connecting the power supply, shake the lever to observe the reaction stroke and speed of the corresponding servo.

14. Check if the spray system is clean
