Use Safety
Lights and Devices
Transport
Machinery Safely
▲ Slow moving tractors,
self-propelled equipment, and
towed implements can create a
hazard when driven on public
roads. They are difficult to see,
especially at night.
▲ Flashing warning lights and turn
signals are recommended
whenever driving on public roads.
▲ Comply with state and local laws.
▲ Use towing vehicle and trailer of
adequate size and capacity.
▲ Secure equipment towed on a
trailer with tie downs and chains.
▲ Sudden braking can cause a trailer
to swerve and upset. Reduce
speed if trailer is not equipped with
brakes.
▲ Avoid contact with any over head
utility lines or electrically charged
conductors.
▲ Engage parking brake when
stopped on an incline.
Use A Safety Chain
Practice Safe Maintenance
▲ A safety chain will help control
drawn machinery should it
separate from the tractor drawbar.
▲ Use a chain with the strength
rating equal to or greater than the
gross weight of the towed
machinery.
▲ Attach the chain to the tractor
drawbar support or other specified
anchor location. Allow only
enough slack in the chain to
permit turning.
▲ Do not use safety chain for towing.
▲ Understand procedure before doing
work. Use proper tools and
equipment, refer to Operator’s
Manual for additional information.
▲ Work in a clean dry area.
▲ Lower attached implement to the

▲ Allow implement to cool before
working on it.
PS25120 Primary Seeder 313-156M
▲ Maximum transport speed for an
attached implement is 20 mph. DO
NOT EXCEED. Never travel at a
speed which does not allow
adequate control of steering and
stopping. Some rough terrains
require a slower speed.
▲ As a guideline, use the following
maximum speed weight ratios for
an attached implement:
20 mph when weight of attached
implement is less than or equal
to the weight of machine towing
the implement.
10 mph when weight of attached
implement exceeds weight of
machine towing implement but
not more than double the weight.
▲ IMPORTANT: Do not tow a load
that is more than double the weight
of the machine towing the load.
▲ Disconnect battery ground cable (-)
before servicing or adjusting
electrical systems or before
welding on implement.
▲ Do not grease or oil implement
while it is in operation.
▲ Inspect all parts. Make certain
parts are in good condition &
installed properly.
▲ Remove buildup of grease, oil, or
debris.
▲ Remove all tools and unused parts
from implement before operation.

Section 2: Operating Instructions
General Description
Tractor 3-Point Hook-Up
The following information is a brief description of how this
implement works. It is included to help you understand
the operation of this seeder.
1. Back tractor up to seeder until 3-Point links are
aligned with hitch clevises on seeder.
2. Secure the tractor’s 3-Point lower links to the lower
hitch clevises using 1 1/8" diameter hitch pins.
3. Secure the tractor’s top center link to the seeder top
hitch using a 1" diameter hitch pin.
4. With the seeder resting on level ground, adjust the
tractor’s top link until the seeder is level from front to
back.
Refer to Figure 2-1:
5. Move parking stand to operating position.
The power to drive the seeding function of this seeder
comes from the ground speed of the tractor. The seed
metering is powered by the front roller at a rate
proportional to the distance driven. This ensures that the
rate applied in pounds per acre or pounds per 1000
square feet remains constant as ground speed is varied.
The power is transmitted via drive chains to the seed
cups. This drive can be adjusted to a high or low range to
broadcast more or less seed. The seed rate is adjustable
using the seed rate lever located at the rear of the
seeder. The seed is dropped between cast iron rollers.
The front roller crushes clods, presses down small
stones, and forms a firm seedbed. The rear roller firms
the soil around the seeds.
Operating Checklist
Hazard control and accident prevention are dependent
upon the awareness, concern, prudence, and proper
training involved in the operation, transport, storage, and
maintenance of the Primary Seeder. Therefore, it is
absolutely essential that no one operates this seeder
without first having read, fully understood, and become
totally familiar with the Operator’s Manual. Make sure the
operator has completed the Operating Checklist below.

Tractor Drawbar Hook-Up
Refer to Figure 2-3:
!
WARNING
Front wheel Pull-Type Seeders have negative tongue weight
when in transport position. Negative tongue weight may cause
immediate elevation of tongue. Always be certain seeder is
hitched securely to tractor drawbar and safety chain attached
before raising. Lower seeder before unhitching.
IMPORTANT: Be sure to follow “Tractor Drawbar
Hook-Up” instructions when hooking-up to a “Front
Wheel Pull-Type Seeder.
Negative tongue forces imposed with front wheels in
the raised position when seeder box is:

Clevis Style Hitch Height Adjustments
Figure 2-3
• Empty: 30 bushel box can be as high as 1000 lbs.
• Loaded: 30 bushel box can be as high as 1500 lbs.
Pull-type units are equipped with a clevis style hitch. For
proper field operation, the seeder box should be level in
field position.
1. The mounting holes in the clevis hitch have been
offset so the hitch can be turned over and bolted at
two different hitch heights.
2. Back the tractor draw bar up to the seeder hitch to
determine the proper hitch position.
3. Connect hitch to the tractor using a pin of adequate
strength (minimum 1" diameter). Secure hitch pin
with a retaining clip.
IMPORTANT: For the Front Wheel Pull-type option
you must install a retaining clip on the hitch pin to
prevent it from working up as the seeder changes
from positive to negative tongue weight.

Transporting
! DANGER
Hydraulic fluid under high pressure can penetrate the skin.
3-Point & Pull-Type Seeders
Wear protective gloves and safety glasses or goggles when
working with hydraulic systems. Use a piece of cardboard or
wood rather than hands when searching for hydraulic leaks. If
hydraulic fluid is injected into the skin or eyes, it must be
treated by a doctor familiar with this type of injury within a
few hours or gangrene may result. DO NOT DELAY.
For Pull-Type Seeders equipped with front or end
wheels, route all hydraulic hoses along the tongue and
through the hose loop on the front of the tongue as
described in the assembly instructions. Connect hoses to
the tractor remote outlets.
Purging Rephasing Lift Cylinders
!
CAUTION
Do not crack hose fittings in order to bleed air from this
system.
NOTE: There is a chance of drawing air into the
system causing jerky or uneven cylinder movements
if tractor reservoir is low on hydraulic fluid. Check
hydraulic fluid in the tractor reservoir and fill to the
proper level before purging lift cylinders.
Tractors with pressure detents do not allow hydraulic
systems to “automatically” rephase at the top of the lift
cycle. This must be done manually or the rephasing
cylinders will not function properly. Therefore, after every
couple of trips back and forth across the field and after
the machine has been fully raised, the control lever
should be pulled back and held for 1-2 seconds. This will
purge air that has been ingested into the system.
NOTE: It is the nature of rephasing cylinders to
settle slightly after the seeder has been raised.
Operating Hydraulic Lift System
The lift cylinders may, over time get out of time or phase.
The effects of this can be seen when one wheel of the
seeder is higher than the other because one lift cylinder
is over retracted compared to the other lift cylinder.
To rephase the cylinders, raise the seeder completely up
and hold the tractor hydraulic lever on for a few seconds
to give the cylinders time to rephase. This should be
done each time the seeder is raised. Momentarily
reversing the hydraulic lever immediately after rephasing
to allow the cylinders to retract about 1/2" will help in
maintaining a level seeder during transport.
NOTE: Understand that having the cylinders
become gradually out of time is different than having
air trapped in the system from improper bleeding.
Each condition is corrected differently.
4/03/14
!
CAUTION
When traveling on public roads whether at night or during the
day, use accessory light and devices for adequate warning to
operators of other vehicles. Comply with all federal, state, and
local laws.
1. It is best to transport on the road with an empty box
unless necessary as the increased seed weight will
increase the chances for road problems.
2. Select a safe ground travel speed when transporting
from one area to another.
3. When traveling on roadways, transport in such a way
that faster moving vehicles may pass you safely.
4. Reduce tractor ground speed when turning. Leave
enough clearance so the seeder does not contact
obstacles such as buildings, trees, or fences.
5. Shift to a lower gear when traveling over rough or
hilly terrain.
Pull-Type Seeders
!
CAUTION
Pull-Type Seeders should never be pulled faster than 20 miles
per hour!

Filling the Seed Box
!
CAUTION
Always lower the Primary Seeder to the ground before filling
and checking seed level in the seed box. This will keep the
rollers from turning while working around them.
1. Always lower the Primary Seeder to the ground,
engage tractor park brake, shut tractor engine off
and remove key before filling the seed box.
2. Release lid latch and open seed box lid until over
center latch arms have locked in place. Doing this will
keep the lid from falling while filling the box.
3. Fill seed box from the rear while standing on the
ground. Do not step or climb on the rear roller to fill
the seed box. Make sure the rear roller is on the
ground so it cannot turn while filling the box.
4. The bag opener (sharp point on top of baffle plate
located inside the seed box) can be used to tear
open the seed bags.
5. Maker certain the seed box is filled uniformly to
ensure one side dose not run out of product ahead of
the other side.
6. Close lid by pulling on the handle of the over center
latch arms with one hand while holding the lid up with
the other hand. Lower lid gently while keeping hands
and fingers clear.
7. Lock lid down with lid latch to keep moisture out.
8. At first begin seeding at a slow forward speed and
shift up until the desired speed is achieved.
How the Seeder Works
The following information is a brief description of how this
Primary Seeder works. It is included to help you
understand the operation of this seeder.
The power to drive the seeding function of this seeder
comes from the ground speed of the tractor. The seed
metering is powered by the front roller at a rate
proportional to the distance driven. This ensures that the
rate applied in pounds per acre or pounds per 1000
square feet remains constant as ground speed is varied.
The power is transmitted via drive chains to the seed
cups. This drive can be adjusted to a high or low range to
broadcast more or less seed. The seed rate is adjustable
using the seed rate lever located at the rear of the
seeder. The seed is dropped between cast iron rollers.
The front roller crushes clods, presses down small
stones, and forms a firm seedbed. The rear roller firms
the soil around the seeds.

Operating the Seeder
!
WARNING
Do not use the seeder for pulling fence posts, stumps, etc.,
lifting objects, carry objects, or towing other equipment. Any
of the above can result in equipment damage, serious bodily
injury or death.
!
DANGER
Never carry a person on the seeder. A person can become
entangled in the seeder or fall and be ran over causing serious
injury or death.
!
CAUTION
Never back up with the seeder down. This will loosen the drive
chain and possibly damage the seeder.
IMPORTANT: Before proceeding with the first time
set-up, or before making any adjustments
mentioned in this section, make every effort to
attach the seeder to a tractor.
1. Contact your local utility services so that they may
mark location of any under ground utility services in
the area. Thoroughly inspect the work area yourself
for buried pipelines, sprinkler heads, and any
unforeseen objects. Mark any potential hazards.
2. This seeder can be transported with a full box of
seeds. It is best not to do this unless necessary
because the increased weight does increase the
chances for problems on the road. Do not exceed 20
miles per hour.
3. Calibrate your seeder sprocket speed and seed cup
rate adjustment lever based on type of seed you are
using. Calibration information is located on the inside
of your box lid or on page 24.
4. Make sure the seed cup door adjustment handle on
each cup is set the same across the seeder.
5. Be sure all bolts and nuts are tight.
6. Be certain all guards are in place and secure.
7. Clear the area to be seeded of rocks, branches, and
other foreign objects.
8. Never allow anyone to ride on the seeder.
9. Check that all plugs and caps have been replaced
properly.
10. At first begin seeding at a slow forward speed and
shift up until the desired speed is achieved.
Maximum speed to plant seed will vary according to
soil conditions. Seeding should not be done in wet
conditions as soil will stick to the rollers.
11. After seeding the first 50 feet, stop and check to see
that the seeder is adjusted properly.

Section 2: Operating Instructions
General Operating Instructions
Once you have read the operators manual, properly
attached the seeder to the tractors, ran through the
Operating Checklist, filled the hopper with seed, and
calibrated the unit for proper seed rate delivery, it’s time
to do some serious seeding.
The PS25120 has a ground driven seed delivery system.
The power to drive the seeder comes from the forward
momentum of the tractor. As the tractor moves forward
the ground driven front roller compactor transfers power,
via chain driven sprockets, to the seed metering system.
So, the seed rate remains constant and in direct
proportion to the distance traveled and is affected very
little by actual ground speed.
As the front roller passes over areas to be seeded it
crushes larger clods, presses down smaller stones, and
firms the seedbed. Seed is then delivered at the precise
predetermined uniform rate over the wind guarded seed
drop to the area located between the front and rear
rollers. The rear roller then presses the seed into firm
contact with the soil to promote a superbly high
germination rate. Seeding should not be attempted in
wet or muddy conditions.
Now that you understand how it works its time to begin
seeding. Make sure you have removed the rear roller lock
pin from the field or parking position.
You should already have removed any large stones or
obstacles from the area you plan to seed. Line the tractor
up for the first pass and choose a tractor gear selection
that will deliver a ground speed of approximately
3-5 mph. Lower the seeder slowly to the ground. At first
begin driving forward slowly until you get comfortable
with what you are doing. As you approach the end of the
lane you are seeding, slow down and come to a stop
while simultaneously raising the seeder off of the ground.
With the seeder raised, turn around and line up for your
next pass to repeat the seeding process. Look back often
and make only gradual turns with your seeder on the
ground to develop a uniform seeding pattern. The more
experienced you become the better you will get at
developing beautiful seed plots and beautiful lawns.
When you are done seeding, always clean the seeder out
and perform all maintenance prescribed in the operator’s
manual. Never leave seed stored in the hopper for
prolonged periods.

Drive System
Standard Broadcasting
Your Primary Seeder uses standard no. 40 roller chain
throughout its drive system. The drive system is simple
and designed for low maintenance.
1. Check the drive idler to ensure that it is taking up any
excess chain slack.
2. Check each chain to ensure that it is not over-tight.
3. Annually clean and lubricate chain with chain oil.

Seed Broadcasting System
Seed Rate Speed Change
Refer to Figure 3-1:
The seed broadcasting system gives you an even
distribution of seeds. At the rear of your seeder, beneath
the feed cups, is the seed broadcasting handle. For most
seeds, this handle should be set to the STANDARAD
BROADACASTING position shown.
Refer to Figure 3-2:
The seed rate speed change is designed to give you two
speeds for different types of seeds and rates. The two
drive types are high range (fast speed) and low range
(slow speed). To change drive type:
Do not use the standard setting for broadcasting large,
fluffy seeds. Doing this will have a tendency to bridge and
cause the seeds to plug. Therefore; it is necessary to
adjust the seed broadcasting handle to LARGE SEEDS
BROADCAST position. This gives the seeds a larger
area to fall through to help eliminate plugging.
Low Range
1. Remove chain guard.
2. Loosen idler arm and remove roller chains.
3. Remove nut in the center of sprocket hub, turn
sprocket hub over and reassemble. Tighten nut to the
correct torque.
4. Reinstall drive chains and adjust drive idler to snug
up the chains. Tighten idler arm nut.
5. Replace chain guard.

Calibrating & Adjusting Seeding Rate
Seed Cup Settings
Refer to Figure 3-3:
Each seed cup is equipped with a four-position gate. The
highest gate handle position shown is for small seeds,
the second and third positions are for larger seeds. The
forth position (Handle rotated fully down below the
bottom tab) sets the gate at wide open to allow complete
clean-out of seed cup.
IMPORTANT: Seed rates provided in the charts may
be inconsistent with actual planting rates due to
seed size, weight, treatment, moisture content, ratio
of inert material to seed, different seed mixtures,
humidity, & ground preparation. Minor adjustments
to the cup setting may be needed to compensate.
Seed rate charts are based on the gate handle being set
in the highest position. Typically, most seeds will use the
highest gate handle position. If using larger seed and it is
not discharging properly, you can try using the other two
gate handle positions.
NOTE: To determine seed rates for seeds not listed
on the charts, compare weight and size to those
listed and use a similar setting. Follow steps 1 to 4 to
calibrate seed rate.
IMPORTANT: Most applications for this seeder
require the gate handle be placed in the highest
position.
MAKE SURE all gate handles are in the same
position before seeding.
Do Not set gate handles in the fourth position and
seed rate adjustment lever to the widest open
position (See Figure 3-4 on page 22) with seed in the
box unless complete clean out is desired.
1. Use seed rate charts beginning on page 24 to
determine correct seeding rate. Make adjustments
as follows:
a. On the right-hand side of your seeder is the drive
system. Decide if the drive needs to be set-up for
low range or high range. If necessary, change
speed change sprocket to accommodate correct
speed range, See Seed Rate Speed Change on
page 21 for instructions.
b. See Figure 3-4. Locate seed rate adjustment
lever at the rear of the seeder and move it to the
indicator number obtained from the charts. For
best results, first move adjustment lever all the
way to the left and then to the desired setting,
moving from a lower to a higher number.
• Increase setting if seed is lighter than average.
• Decrease setting if seed is heavier than
average.
IMPORTANT: Do Not operate seed rate adjustment
lever at -0- setting. Seed cup damage may occur.

2. Secure seed broadcasting handle at the rear of the
seeder to the proper setting, Figure 3-1 on page 21.
3. Complete the following procedure to calibrate
dispersal rate for your specific seed.
a. Place several pounds of seed over three of the
seed cups at the outboard end of the seeder. Do
not allow any of the seed to reach other cups.
b. Lower seeder frame onto support blocks that will
support the drive roller just above ground level.
c. Rotate drive roller by grasping the roller at the top
and pulling away from the seeder. Rotate roller to
make sure drive system is working properly and
seed cups are free from foreign matter.
d. Place a container under the three feed cups to
gather all seed as it is metered out.
e. Be sure to check the three seed cups to make sure
each cup has plenty of seed falling into it and no
other cups are receiving seed.
f. Rotate front roller by pulling the top away from the
seeder as many rotations as noted in table below.

g. Weigh the seed which has been metered out.
• If weight is in pounds, divide total weight of
seed metered out by 3 to get the number of
pounds metered by each seed cup.
• If weight is in ounces, divide total weight of
seed metered out by 48 to get number of
pounds metered by each seed cup.
h. Next, multiply number of pounds per cup by
number of cups on your seeder to arrive at total
pounds per 1000 sq. ft. or pounds per 1/10 acre.
i. If calculations are based on 1/10 acre, multiply
total pounds by 10 to arrive at total pounds per
acre.
j. If this figure (total pounds per 1000 sq. ft. or acre)
is different than desired, then readjust your seed
cup adjustment lever accordingly.
4. You may want to repeat calibration procedure if
results of your calibration vary greatly from
suggested settings in the chart.
Seed Clean-Out
!
WARNING
Never use your hands, fingers or material to push seed out the
seed box discharge openings or out the seed cups. Bodily
injury can result from such practices.
It is important to clean-out the seeder box and cups after
completing a job and when storing it for long periods.
Clean seed out of the seeder as follows:
1. Park tractor and seeder on a level smooth surface.
2. Lower seeder frame onto support blocks that will
support the drive roller just above ground level.
3. Place tractor selector in park, set park brakes, turn
tractor engine off, and remove switch key.
4. Place a tarp on the ground under the seed cups to
collect seed as it falls from the cups.
5. Refer to Figure 3-3 on page 22: Set all gate handles
on the seed cups to the full open position.
6. Refer to Figure 3-4 on page 22: Set Seed rate
adjustment lever to the widest open position (highest
number on the indicator).
7. Seed should free fall through the cups until seed box
is empty.
8. If required, use a broom to finish cleaning seed out of
the seed box. Never use your hands, fingers, or
material to finish cleaning out the seed box.
9. Remove any remaining seed from the seed cups by
rotating the top of the drive roller away from the
seeder until all seed has discharged from the seed
cups. (Approximately one to two revolutions.)
IMPORTANT: Remember, field and seed conditions
will affect seeding rates. Check amount of seed
being using by noting acres or square feet seeded,
amount of seed added to the seeder, and level of
seed in the seed box. It may be necessary to make
minor seeding rate adjustments to compensate if
seeder has been accurately calibrated and is
seeding more or less seed than desired.

Section 4: Maintenance & Lubrication
General Maintenance
Storage
Proper servicing and adjustment is the key to the long life
of any implement. With careful inspection and routine
maintenance, you can avoid costly downtime and repair.
Clean, inspect, service, and make necessary repairs to
the seeder when parking it for long periods and when
parking it at the end of a working season. This will help
ensure the seeder is ready for field use the next time you
hook-up to it.
The parts on your Primary Seeder have been specially
designed and should only be replaced with genuine Land
Pride parts. Do not alter the seeder in a way which will
adversely affect its performance.
1. After using your seeder for several hours, check all
bolts to be sure they are tight.
2. Lubricate areas noted in the “Lubrication” section.
3. Adjust idlers to remove excess slack from chains.
Clean and use chain lube on all roller chains as
needed.
4. Feed cup drive sprocket should be oiled in its square bore.
Move feed cup adjustment lever away from sprocket as far
as possible in order to get oil back into square.
5. Always maintain proper air pressure in tires.
6. Replace any worn, damaged, or illegible safety labels by
obtaining new labels from your Land Pride Dealer.
7. Inspect safety chain and hardware for wear or other
damage.
Tractor Maintenance
One of the most important things you can do to prevent
hydraulic system problems is ensure that your tractor's
reservoir remains free of dirt and contamination.
Use a clean cloth to wipe hose ends before attaching
them to your tractor. Replace your tractor’s hydraulic filter
element at the prescribed intervals. These simple
maintenances will go a long way to prevent occurrence of
control valve and hydraulic cylinder problems.

PS25120 Primary Seeder 313-156M
1. Remove any dirt or grease that may have
accumulated on the seeder and any of the moving
parts.
2. Be sure that the seed box is completely cleaned
before storing. See "Seed Clean-Out" on page 23.
3. The square bore of the feed cup drive sprocket hub
should be oiled to prevent seizing. Squirt oil on to the
square feed cup shaft and move feed cup adjustment
lever back and forth in order to get the oil back into
the square.
4. Inspect for loose, damaged or worn parts and adjust
or replace as needed.
5. Repaint parts where paint is worn or scratched to
prevent rust. Ask your Land Pride dealer for aerosol
touch-up paint. Paint is also available in touch-up
bottles with brush, quarts, and gallon sizes by adding
TU, QT, or GL to the end of the aerosol part number.

6. Replace all damaged or missing decals.
7. Lubricate all fittings as indicated in the following
illustrations.
8. For seeders with front or end wheels, apply a light
coat of oil to exposed cylinder rods.
9. When in storage, lower the seeder with rollers on a
board or hard surface and adjust parking stand or
tongue jack.
10. Store seeder inside if possible. Inside storage will
reduce maintenance and make for a longer seeder
life.

Seed Cup Sprockets & Nylon Washers
IMPORTANT: DO NOT use petroleum lubricant on
plastic seed cups. Petroleum will absorb into the
plastic and swell plastic components.
NOTE: Cleaning seed cups seasonally is often all
that is required to keep seed cups working properly.
Remove seed from seed box and seed cups. Rinse
each seed cup thoroughly with water spray from a
garden hose. Allow seed cups to air dry completely
before putting seeder back into service.

Pull-Type
Front mounted wheels
End mounted wheels
Transport locks
Removable tongue
Allows for easier hook-up to tractor and is adaptable to smaller tractors.
Front mounted wheels narrow the unit up for transport or going through gates.
End mounted wheels gives a smoother transport, and lowers the negative tongue weight.
Keeps wheels in transport position if cylinders were to fail during transport.
Tongue is easy to remove. Convenient for storage or when loaded on a trailer.
Lift hooks
For easy loading on to trailers
All welded weatherproof
seedbox
Keeps rain and rodents out, and gives rigidity to seedbox.
Heavy-duty lock-up lid
Lids are precision fit to keep seeds dry and rodents out, and they won’t buckle or slam shut
in high winds.
Seed splash guard
Seedbox lid has a guard to prevent seed from being spilled between lid and box.
Easy seed box clean out
Seed flute is designed for easy clean out. Simply move the flute lever into the clean out
position and all seeds will be removed.
30 Bushel seed capacity
30 Bushel is ideal for the sod farmer and grain growers.
Seed level indicator
Check seedbox level from the tractor seat.
Fluted sprocket seed cups
The right amount of seed is picked up by the fluted sprockets every time.
Powder metal
in the fluted sprocket
Powder metal in the seed cup sprockets helps dissipate heat caused by the friction
between the sprocket and housing.
Seed rate adjustment
Easy adjustment of seed rates. Lever position is located on seed rate chart.
Adjustable seed opening
Seed opening can be ‘enlarged’ by sliding a lever. Larger opening for fluffy seed allows for
easier flow.
Seed rate decal
Positioned on lid. Easy access to seed rate information.
High/Low seed settings
Easy adjustment on sprocket arrangement on seed cup drive. This allows for a very broad
range of seed settings.
Ground driven metering
Front packer rollers are in constant contact with the ground to ensure consistent metering
of seed. Seed metering stops automatically when front packer is raised off the ground.
Cast iron packer rollers
15 5/8" diameter front rings and 11 3/8" diameter rear rings are used to crush the clods
and pack the seed in to promote seed to soil contact.
Spring mounted rear packers
Rear packer rollers are spring loaded for additional down pressure, and to stay in contact
with the ground.
#40 Roller chain
All drives utilize #40 roller chain for smooth running.
Vacuum sealed acremeter
Vacuum sealed to keep dirt out. Acremeter to plan seed requirements.

Section 7: Troubleshooting
PS25120 Troubleshooting Chart
Problem
Uneven seed spacing or uneven stand
Solution
Check for plugging in feed cup
Check to see if seed tubes are plugged
Check for plugging in seed broadcasting channel
Reduce ground speed
Check for trash or mud build up on rollers
Actual seeding rate is different than
desired
Seed treatment will affect seeding rate if the chemicals build up in feed cup.
Unless cleaned regularly, this build up can cause breakage of the feeder cup
shaft.
Check speed change sprocket
See manual for instructions on calculating seed rate
Acremeter doesn’t measure accurately
Check planting operation for excessive overlap or gaps between passes
Loose soil conditions and slippage of front roller will cause variations in acres
registered
Raising and lowering seeder is rough or
uneven on front or end wheel seeders
Lubricate wheel arm pivot shaft
Check hydraulic fittings for leaks. Refer to "Tractor Hydraulic Hook-Up" on
page 17.
Rephasing cylinders not properly bled. Refer to "Tractor Hydraulic Hook-Up"
on page 17.
When raising seeder, the cylinders should be fully extended to ensure that they
are always rephased.
Feed cup sprocket locked up or twisted
seed cup drive shaft
Check for foreign matter lodged in feed cup sprocket
Rollers not turning freely
Check for trash or mud build up on roller ends
