This 64 page, Fordson Dexta And Super Dexta Operators Manual is a reproduction of the original out of print manual that came with the Fordson Dexta And Super Dexta tractors when it was new.
Built into your Dexta is the experience of many years of designing, testing and building tractors. This book will tell you how to make the most of these qualities and ensure years of efficient and reliable service. Remember, regular maintenance is the key to reliability. A tractor represents an investment and so does the care and maintenance it receives. Do not be tempted to save money by using inferior lubricants and fuel or by omitting maintenance tasks. Remember, also, there is no satisfactory substitute for genuine Fordson spares. Your Dealer is there to help you: discuss your service problems with him. You will find him only too happy to assist and to place his very comprehensive facilities at your disposal. We suggest that when you sit in the driving seat of your Dexta for the first time you turn to Section One of this book and check the location and function of each control. Read also Section Two, which describes fully how to use these controls for different types of work. In the remaining sections of this book you will find the information you require to carry out the routine servicing and running adjustments on your tractor, and, in addition, these items are shown on a separate chart for quick reference. Last, but by no means least in importance, you will find in the Operation and Lubrication Sections of this book a number of suggestions on “running-in” the tractor. The importance of this cannot be overemphasized, as careful handling and servicing during this short period will go a long way to ensure that your Dexta will, over many years, give the satisfactory service of which it is capable.
