Introduction and Safety Information
Introduction
The implement described in this manual has been
designed with care and built by skilled workers using
quality materials and processes. Proper assembly and
maintenance will provide you with satisfactory use for
seasons to come.

DANGER
Read this entire manual before attempting to
assemble, adjust or operate this implement.
Failure to comply with this warning can result in
personal injury or death, damage to the
implement or its components and inferior
operation.
Description of Unit
• Location reference: Right and Left designations in this
manual are determined by facing the direction the
implement will travel during field operation, unless
otherwise stated.
Federal law requires that you explain the safety and
operating instructions furnished with this machine to
all employees before they are allowed to operate the
machine. These must be repeated to the employee's
at the beginning of each season. Be sure to observe
and follow the instructions for the safety of anyone
operating or near the machine.
NOTE
Investigation has shown that nearly 1/3 of all farm
accidents are caused by careless use of machinery.
Insist that all people working with you or for you abide by
all safety instructions.
The unique design of the Double Seeder Hitch allows for
pulling any combination of 8’,10’, or 12’ pull-type seeders
in tandem to expand the seeding width up to a maximum
of 24 feet. The over-the-top design maintains a transport
width only as wide as the widest seeder. The center flex
pivot and wide range of adjustments lets each seeder
follow the soil’s natural contours for consistent seeder
operation. The Double Seeder Hitch incorporates low
profile flotation tires on the front frame and a caster
wheel and tire on the rear frame to keep wheel tracks in
the field to a minimum. The rear tongue utilizes an
adjustable hitch plate for easy hook-ups.
Using this Manual
This manual will familiarize you with safety, assembly,
operation, adjustment, and maintenance. Read this
manual and follow the recommendations to help ensure
safe and efficient operation.
• The information in this manual is current at time of
printing. Some parts may have changed to assure top
performance.

INTRODUCTION AND SAFETY INFORMATION
Understanding Safety Statements
You will find various types of safety information on the
following pages and on the implement decals (signs)
attached to the implement. This section explains their
meaning.
NOTICE
Special notice - read and thoroughly understand.

CAUTION
Proceed with caution. Failure to heed caution
may cause injury to person or damage product.

WARNING
Proceed with caution. Failure to heed warning will
cause injury to person or damage product.

DANGER
Proceed with extreme caution. Failure to heed
notice will cause injury or death to person and/or
damage product.
NOTE
You should read and understand the information
contained in this manual and on the implement decals
before you attempt to operate or maintain this equipment.
Examine safety decals and be sure you have the correct
safety decals for the implement.
Order replacement decals through your Brillion dealer.
Keep these signs clean so they can be observed readily.
It is important to keep these decals clean more frequently
than the implement. Wash with soap and water or a
cleaning solution as required.
Replace decals that become damaged or lost. Also, be
sure that any new implement components installed
during repair include decals which are assigned to them
by the manufacturer.
When applying decals to the implement, be sure to clean
the surface to remove any dirt or residue. Where
possible, sign placement should protect the sign from
abrasion, damage, or obstruction from mud, dirt, oil etc.
1-2

DANGER
• Do not allow anyone to ride on the tractor or
implement. Riders could be struck by foreign
objects or thrown from the implement.
• Never allow children to operate equipment.
• Keep bystanders away from implement during
operation.
Transporting Safety
IMPORTANT
It is the responsibility of the owner/operator to
comply with all state and local laws.
When transporting the implement on a road or highway,
use adequate warning symbols, reflectors, lights and
slow moving vehicle sign as required. Slow moving
tractors and towed implements can create a hazard when
driven on public roads. They are difficult to see,
especially at night.
Do not tow an implement that, when fully loaded, weighs
more than 1.5 times the weight of the towing vehicle.
Carry reflectors or flags to mark the tractor and
implement in case of breakdown on the road.
Do not transport at speeds over 20 MPH under good
conditions. Never travel at a speed which does not allow
adequate control of steering and stopping. Reduce
speed if towed load is not equipped with brakes
Avoid sudden stops or turns as the weight of the
implement may cause the operator to lose control of the
tractor. Use a tractor heavier than the implement.
Use caution when towing behind articulated steering
tractors; fast or sharp turns may cause the implement to
shift sideways.
Keep clear of overhead power lines and other
obstructions when transporting. Know the transport
height and width of your implement.
Attaching, Detaching and Storage
• Do not stand between the tractor and implement when
attaching or detaching implement unless both are
prevented from moving.
• Before applying pressure to the hydraulic system, be
sure all connections are tight and that hydraulic lines
and hoses are not damaged.
• Block implement so it will not roll when unhitched from
the tractor.
F-645
INTRODUCTION AND SAFETY INFORMATION
Maintenance Safety
• Make sure all moving parts have stopped.
Use a chain with a strength rating equal to or greater than
the gross weight of towed machinery, which is 11,000
pounds minimum in accordance with ASAE S338.2
specifications. If two or more implements are pulled in
tandem, a larger chain may be required. Chain capacity
must be greater than the TOTAL weight of all towed
implements.
• Understand the procedure before doing the work. Use
proper tools and equipment.
A second chain should be used between each
implement.
• Block the implement so it will not roll when working on
or under it to prevent injury.
• Do not make adjustments or lubricate the machine
while it is in motion.
Protective Equipment
• Wear protective clothing & equipment appropriate for
the job. Avoid loose fitting clothing.
• Because prolonged exposure to loud noise can cause
hearing impairment or hearing loss, wear suitable
hearing protection, such as earmuffs or earplugs.
Attach the chain to the tractor drawbar support or
specified anchor location. Allow only enough slack in the
chain to permit turning. The distance from hitch pin to
attachment point or intermediate support point should not
exceed 9 inches. See Figure 1-1.
Replace the chain if any links or end fittings are broken,
stretched or damaged.
Do not use a safety chain for towing.
High Pressure Fluid Safety
Escaping fluid under pressure can be nearly invisible and
have enough force to penetrate the skin causing serious
injury. Use a piece of cardboard, rather than hands, to
search for suspected leaks.
Any fluid injected into the skin must be surgically
removed within a few hours or gangrene may result.
Avoid the hazard by relieving pressure before
disconnecting hydraulic lines.
Prepare for Emergencies
• Keep a First Aid Kit and Fire Extinguisher handy
• Keep emergency numbers for the doctor, ambulance,
hospital and fire department near the phone.
Tire Safety
Tire changing can be dangerous and should be
performed by trained personnel using correct tools and
equipment.
Figure 1-1 Safety Chain
When inflating tires, use a clip-on chuck and extension
hose long enough to allow you to stand to one side, not in
front of or over the tire assembly. Use a safety cage if
available.
When removing and installing wheels use
wheel-handling equipment adequate for the weight
involved.
Safety Chain
Use the safety chain to help control drawn machinery
should it separate from the tractor drawbar.

washer that backs up the o-ring contacts the face of
the boss.
2. Orient the fitting by turning counterclockwise up to 1
turn.
3. Tighten the lock nut using 50-60 foot pounds torque.
NOTE
As you assemble hoses to fittings leave hose ends loose
enough on the fittings so that they can pivot as the hose
is being securely clamped to the hitch.
NOTE
On most tractors this can be done by putting the valve
controls in the float position before the engine is stopped.
Use the Hydraulic Schematic as a reference: See
Figure 2-9.

S-Tine Tire Track Remover (Optional)
1. Attach brackets to the frame with U-bolts (1/2-13 x
4-1/2” centers x 7-1/2” deep), lock washers, and nuts.
Note that the long ends of the brackets are
downward. The bracket on the Transmission side
should be about 13-1/8” from the frame inner plate
and on the opposite side 10-1/4” from the frame inner
plate. See Figures 2-14, 2-15.
NOTE
S-tines should not be operated any deeper than
necessary to remove tractor tire tracks. Otherwise, wet
soil is brought up which will stick to the rollers, draft load
is increased, and under some conditions, tines may
deflect back to rollers and break. See Figure 2-13.
SUGGESTED SETTING
2. Attach the tube to brackets using straps and bolts
(1/2-13” x 6”), lock washers, and nuts. At this time
ensure the hydraulic hoses are positioned over the
top of the Brackets. See Figures 2-14, 2-15.
3. Locate and install the S-tines to cover the tractor tire

Operations
IMPORTANT
Before operating your Brillion machine check all
hardware for tightness.
After a few hours of initial use, check entire machine
and tighten any loose nuts and bolts. Daily or
periodic checks should be made thereafter

CAUTION
Escaping fluid under pressure can be nearly
invisible and have enough force to penetrate the
skin causing serious injury. Use a piece of
cardboard, rather than hands, to search for
suspected leaks. Wear protective gloves & safety
glasses or goggles when working with hydraulic
systems.
Hose Set Up for Both Seeders on One
Hydraulic Circuit
To control both seeders with one hydraulic circuit, remove
the caps on the front seeder bulkhead tee.
1. With the hose still connected, remove the 90 degree
Elbow fitting from the rear seeder straight bulkhead.
2. Connect the 90 degree elbow to the front seeder Tee
bulkhead.
3. Reinstall previously removed caps to the straight
bulkheads.
4. Tie up unused hydraulic hoses.
NOTE
Avoid the hazard by relieving pressure before
disconnecting hydraulic lines. On most tractors this can
be done by putting the valve controls in the float position
before the engine is stopped.

OPERATIONS
Attaching the Seeders
NOTE
When attaching two seeders of different widths, attach
the wider seeder always to the front hitch, and use the
cylinder attaching holes specified for the wider seeder.
• With the Double Seeder Hitch in the transport
position and the second seeder positioned as shown,
drive as closely as possible to the hitch point of the
second seeder.
• As soon as the front seeder is past the hitch of the
second seeder, operate the hitch in the field position
and turn the tractor to the right so that the rear hitch
gets closer to the rear seeder.
• Disengage the pin from the rear hitch to allow the
hitch plate to extend out and swing in either direction.
Engage the pin on the rear hitch plate after attaching
to the seeder.

OPERATIONS
Operating Position
• The overlap of the seeders can be adjusted using the
turnbuckle. Extending the turnbuckle increases the
overlap.
• When making turns at the end of the field, the rear
seeder must be raised, or it will cause the caster
wheel to skid sideways.
NOTE
• Use extreme caution when turning corners. When
turning left, the seeder swings widely to the right.
If more downward force is required on the rear hitch,
increase the tension on the lower Spring Bolt nut.
• The left edge of the front seeder follows directly
along the center of the tractor.
When operating in fields with irregular contours, the
position of the rear seeder can be adjusted by carefully
adjusting the hydraulic cylinder stroke slightly.

Maintenance
Fasteners
Before operating your Brillion machine, check all
hardware for tightness. Use the Tightening Torque Table
below as a guide.
After a few hours of use, check entire machine and
tighten any loose nuts or bolts. Daily or periodic checks
should be made thereafter.
When replacing bolts, be sure to use fasteners of equal
grade.
General Torque Specifications (rev.
4/97)
This chart provides tightening torques for general purpose applications when special torques are not specified on process or
drawing. Assembly torques apply to plated nuts and capscrews assembled without supplemental lubrication (as received condition).
They do not apply if special graphite moly-disulfide or other extreme pressure lubricants are used. When fasteners are dry (solvent
cleaned) add 33% to as received condition torque. Bolt head identification marks indicate grade and may vary from manufacturer to
manufacturer. Thick nuts must be used on grade 8 capscrews. Use value in [ ] if using prevailing torque nuts

WARNING
Use of smaller or lighter tires will cause
premature tire failure and may cause an accident.
Recommended inflation pressure is as follows:
27 x 9.50 - 15 NHS-10 Ply Tire: maximum pressure is 65
PSI.
20.5 x 8 - 10 Caster Wheel Tire: maximum pressure is 35
PSI.
After several hours of use re-torque Wheel Bolts to 80-85
Ft-lbs.
Hydraulic System

WARNING
Escaping fluid under pressure can be nearly
invisible and have enough force to penetrate the
skin causing serious injury. Use a piece of
cardboard, rather than hands to search for
suspected leaks. Wear protective gloves and
safety glasses or goggles when working with
hydraulic system.
Check the hydraulic lines and cylinders for leaks before
starting operation each day.
When the machine is not to be used for some time,
exposed portions of the cylinder rods should be cleaned
and covered with a thin coat of grease. This will prevent
corrosion which will damage the cylinder seals.
Lubrication
Lubricate bearings with quality grease per recommended
lubrication frequency intervals indicated or if machine is
not used for an extended period. Greaseable
components are the same on each side.

MAINTENANCE

CAUTION
Over lubrication of these bearings can cause
premature bearing failure.
Lubricating Turnbuckle:
Lubricate the four Turnbuckle Grease Fittings every 20
hours of operation. See Figure 4-3.
It is good machine maintenance practice to check all
bolts for tightness during regular lubrications. Tighten any
fasteners that may have loosened during operation.
Lubricating Wheel Hub:
20 Hours
Grease Wheel Hubs every 50 hours of operation or
annually.
Repack Wheel Hub bearings annually before each
season usage. See Figure 4-2.
