2.1

Service list

The following points are general recommendations and are not specific to every snow blade. The
points are specifically explained for each series/plowing machine in the relevant chapters.
During the annual service all screws and bolts should be checked for tightness and retightened if
necessary. Weld joints on heavily stressed components should be checked for flaws and cracks.
A visual inspection should be made of the hydraulic system to check for leaks.
The completeness and correct fastening of all safety devices should be checked.
A visual inspection should be made of the machine mounting device.
The wheel bearings should be greased regularly (every 30 hours.)
Check the mobility of the rollers.
The electrical system should be checked to ensure that it is functional.
The hydraulic hoses, pipes, and connections should be visually checked for damage.

2.2

Hydraulic oil and grease

2.2.1 Hydraulic oil


When shipped from the factory the machine is standard filled with Aral Vitam DE46 oil. This is a mineral-based hydraulic oil and under certain conditions it can be mixed with other mineral-based hydraulic fluids. When exchanging the hydraulic fluid in the oil tank care should be taken to use an oil of
the same type as a replacement.
If a hydraulic fluid of a non-mineral based type is used, it is necessary to check in
advance whether the oils are compatible, otherwise this may result in damage to
the plowing machine or operating vehicle hydraulics.

2.2.2 Grease
The machine leaves the factory with greasable parts greased with a multi-purpose grease that has a
working temperature range of 35 to +120 C. The use of other grease is allowed providing they have
the same range of temperature tolerance as the original, factory inserted grease.

2.3

Hydraulic hoses

Because of national safety regulations the owner/operator of the snow blade must ensure that the hydraulic hoses are replaced at regular intervals as required. This is also the case when no apparent
technical safety deficiency is visible. The operative life of the hoses should not exceed 6 years. The
manufacturing date and the permitted pressure can be read on the hose covering material.

Page 8

When exchanging the hydraulic hoses the replacements should be ordered from bema or be approved by bema in writing, otherwise any claims for personal injury or material damage will be cancelled.

People are strictly forbidden in these areas while the machine


is operational or attached to a power source. Should it be
necessary to enter these areas for maintenance work, the
machine has to have a stable place to stand, be properly supported if needed, and be detached from the power source with
all residual hydraulic pressure removed.

Additionally there are pictograms and explanations on the machine that describe the operating part
and its function. These notices must be taken note of and adhered to.

5 Commissioning (first start up)


The following points need to be observed and carried out if necessary in order to operate the snow
blade optimally.

5.1

Connecting up to the operating vehicle

5.1.1 Hydraulic connection


To operate a snow blade with hydraulic swivel equipment a double-acting pilot circuit (for mounted
devices) is required.
The line diameter of the feed and return lines needs to be at least NW 10 to ensure faultless function of the snow blade.
The hydraulic connections are standard equipped with SVK size 3 connectors.

5.1.2 General
To connect the lighting equipment a plug needs to be attached to the carrier vehicle that is protected by a 10A lead fuse.

5.2

Mounting the snow blade to the carrier vehicle

The snow blade is mounted to the carrier vehicle without tools by the snow blade's mounting device
(mounting equipment of the respective carrier vehicle).
When attaching the hydraulic lines to the carrier vehicle make sure that they are not twisted or folded
and are protected against outside damage.
The mounting equipment may not be modified or exchanged without prior consent by bema.
Only original bema mounting equipment may be used.
The snow blade has to be level for optimal clearing operation.
After the mounting, all screws and safety devices have to be checked for
firm attachment.
A mounted snow blade can have a negative influence on the carrier vehicle's
driving characteristics.

Page 10

5.2.1 Quick-change mount / quick coupling triangle snow blade 700/1100

balance centrally

For this type of mounting the assembly instructions of the carrier vehicle manufacturer need to
be followed.
An SW 24 wrench is needed to adjust any stop
screws.
The counter nut has to be loosened first in order to set the stop length of the screws.
Balance the mounting plate centrally so that the
snow blade has enough room to move up and
down.

The base plate has to be brought to the


mounting height by turning the supports. Once
the carrier vehicle has driven up, the snow
blade can be hooked on. For that the base plate
has to be turned down so far that the catch
hooks of the Unimog mount hook into the carrier vehicle's holder.
To secure the snow blade the base plate has to
be bolted to the carrier vehicle.
Fold up the supports before putting the machine
into operation.
In order to level the machine the tilt adjustment
screws on the baseplate need to be turned.
The disassembly of the snow blade is done in
reverse order.

Page 11

The hydraulic jack of the Unimog mount needs to be extended before transport so that the shipping brace can be inserted above the roller carriage. This
secures the snow blade against sinking.
After removing the snow blade from the carrier vehicle ensure its stability by
folding down the supports.

5.3

Lighting equipment

When clearing public traffic routes the snow blade is subject to identification according to road traffic
licensing regulations. The snow blade can be equipped with lighting equipment to meet the requirements of the road traffic licensing regulations. The standard light system consists of two positioning
lights with a set of cables and a plug (7-pin).
A socket needs to be mounted on the carrier vehicle in a suitable place to the
connection.

5.4

Transportation

The following safety instructions must be observed when transporting a snow blade:
The snow blade may be transported only when raised.
Secure the snow blade against sinking during transport.
When using public traffic routes observe the road traffic regulations and road traffic licensing regulations.

5.5

Power supply

5.5.1 Hydraulics
Connect the hydraulic connectors attached to the hydraulic lines to the carrier vehicle.
Make sure that the hydraulic lines are not twisted or folded.
Due to faulty oil seals hydraulic oil can leak into the environment and permanently damage the environment. In case oil leaks are discovered, the machine
has to be shut down by the operator immediately and be repaired by a technician.

5.5.2 Electric
The electrical connection of the lighting system should be connected to the connector(s) on the carrier
vehicle.

6 Machine operation
6.1

Clearing snow

Bring the snow blade into operative position. This can be done by tilting the carrier vehicle mount in
vertical position. The Vulkolan strips have to touch the ground thereby. Adjust the snow blade by
turning the variably height-adjustable rollers so that the Vulkolan strip is about 5mm above the
ground. This reduces the wear and makes scrape-free clearing possible.
Swiveling to the side (left/right) allows for depositing the cleared mass to the side.

Page 12

6.2

Removing the snow blade

When removing the snow blade from the carrier vehicle make sure that the snow blade has a stable
position.
Set the supports so that the carrier vehicle mounting plate is vertical.
The support wheels of the snow blade have to point towards the rear.
Place the hydraulic connection lines over the snow blade.
Make use of any supports.

7 Replacements
7.1

Vulkolan segments
Attention

Exchange Vulkolan segments only when mounted.

Attention

All setting and maintenance work may be carried out only when the
machine is at a standstill. Switch off the motor of the carrier vehicle
and withdraw the ignition key.

Remove the attachment nuts and clamp bar on the spring aprons and replace the Vulkolan segments
with new ones. Use new attachment nuts during reassembly.
Tip:
All Vulkolan segments should be replaced at the same time to ensure an even ground contact.

8 Safety
The following points have to be observed when operating a snow blade:

Observe the lighting requirements of the road traffic licensing regulations when operating the
snow blade on public traffic routes.
It is prohibited that other persons are present in the vicinity of operation during clearing.

All setting and maintenance work may be carried out only when the machine is at a standstill.
Switch off the motor of the carrier vehicle and withdraw the ignition key.
After operation check that all screws are mounted securely and if necessary retighten.
Replace damaged hydraulic lines and hoses immediately with original replacement parts.
If the snow blade has to be transport for a greater distance, it needs to be secured against sinking
and independent tilting.
