Cleaning up Windrows

Cleaning up windrows

Unfortunately some machines clean up better than others so for this section we will go for the worst case. Always clean the wall in first gear, be ready to take your foot off the accelerator if necessary. Angle the bucket into the wall to be cleaned and apply the accelerator, the bucket will ride against the until the angle becomes too much and the bogger stops. Reverse back off the wall and reset the bucket and keep going. If you are doing a large section, then the leading edge will act like a grader blade and push the dirt into the middle of the road way. This can be used to fill in pot holes in drives if the operator has enough control to do the job. If a driver tries to do this you will only end up with a big mess.
