For users of Woods® BW1800 Batwing Rotary Cutters
(with optional Wing Spring-Loaded Wheel Arm Assemblies and Spring-Loaded Walking Tandem Axles)
In the interest of safety, Woods Equipment Company is alerting users of Woods® BW1800 Batwing Rotary Cutters (equipped with optional Wing Spring-Loaded Wheel Arm Assemblies and Spring-Loaded Walking Tandem Axles) to a potential safety concern.
If the head (on the ¾" x 8" bolt that retains the compression spring) is on top, under extreme conditions, premature wear could occur and the bolt could fail as a result.
If this occurs, it could lead to serious personal injury.
• Please contact your local Woods® dealer to have this necessary rework done at your earliest convenience. Replacement of the bolts and nuts and bolt hole enlargement will be done FREE of CHARGE (per Safety Advisory 1/06).
• Please do not use your Woods® BW1800 Rotary Cutter (with optional WING Spring-Loaded Wheel Arm Assembly and Spring-Loaded Walking Tandem Axles) until the subject bolts and nuts are replaced with hardware contained in Rework Kit #1019874.
