Important Safety Information
Look for Safety Symbol
The SAFETY ALERT SYMBOL indicates there is a
potential hazard to personal safety involved and extra
safety precaution must be taken. When you see this
symbol, be alert and carefully read the message that
follows it. In addition to design and configuration of
equipment, hazard control and accident prevention are
dependent upon the awareness, concern, prudence and
proper training of personnel involved in the operation,
transport, maintenance and storage of equipment.
Be Aware of Signal Words
Signal words designate a degree or level of hazard
seriousness.
DANGER, and the color Safety Red, indicate an
imminent hazard which, if not avoided, will result in death
or serious injury. This signal word is limited to the most
extreme situations, typically for machine components
that, for functional purposes, cannot be guarded.
WARNING, and the color Safety Orange, indicate a
potential hazard which, if not avoided, could result in
death or serious injury, and includes hazards that are
exposed when guards are removed. It may also be used
to alert against unsafe practices.
CAUTION, and the color Safety Yellow, indicate a
potential hazard which, if not avoided, may result in
minor or moderate injury. It may also be used to alert
against unsafe practices.
Prepare for Emergencies
▲ Be prepared if a fire starts
▲ Keep a first aid kit and fire extinguisher handy.
▲ Keep emergency numbers for doctor, ambulance, hospital
and fire department near phone.
Be Familiar with Safety Decals
▲ Read and understand “Safety Decals” on page 5,
thoroughly.
▲ Read all instructions noted on the decals.
▲ Keep decals clean. Replace damaged, faded and illegible
decals.

Important Safety Information
Table of Contents
Index
Wear Protective Equipment
▲ Wear protective clothing and equipment.
▲ Wear clothing and 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.
▲ Because operating equipment safely requires your full
attention, avoid wearing entertainment headphones while
operating machinery.
Handle Chemicals Properly
Agricultural chemicals can be dangerous. Improper use
can seriously injure persons, animals, plants, soil and
property.
▲ Do not use liquid seed treatments with the drill.
▲ Read and follow chemical manufacturer’s instructions.
▲ Wear protective clothing.
▲ Handle all chemicals with care.
▲ Avoid inhaling smoke from any type of chemical fire.
▲ Never drain, rinse or wash dispensers within 100 feet (30m)
of a freshwater source, nor at a car wash.
▲ Store or dispose of unused chemicals as specified by
chemical manufacturer.
▲ Dispose of empty chemical containers properly. Laws
generally require power rinsing or rinsing three times,
followed by perforation of the container to prevent re-use.
Avoid High Pressure Fluids
Escaping fluid under pressure can penetrate the skin,
causing serious injury.
▲ Avoid the hazard by relieving pressure before disconnecting
hydraulic lines.
▲ Use a piece of paper or cardboard, NOT BODY PARTS, to
check for suspected leaks.
▲ Wear protective gloves and safety glasses or goggles when
working with hydraulic systems.
▲ If an accident occurs, seek immediate medical attention
from a physician familiar with this type of injury.

Important Safety Information
Table of Contents
Index
Use Safety Lights and Devices
Slow-moving tractors and towed implements can create
a hazard when driven on public roads. They are difficult
to see, especially at night.
▲ Use flashing warning lights and turn signals whenever
driving on public roads.
▲ Use lights and devices provided with implement
Transport Machinery Safely
Maximum transport speed for implement is 20 mph
(30 kph). Some rough terrains require a slower speed.
Sudden braking can cause a towed load to swerve and
upset.
▲ Do not exceed 20 mph (30 kph). Never travel at a speed
which does not allow adequate control of steering and
stopping. Reduce speed if drill is not equipped with brakes.
▲ Comply with state and local laws.
▲ Carry reflectors or flags to mark drill in case of breakdown
on the road.
▲ Semi-mounted and 3-point implements reduce weight on
steering tires. Verify that tractor is correctly ballasted.
Watch for signs of poor steering traction.
Tires Not a Step
Do not use gauge wheel or lift-assist tires as steps. A tire
could spin underfoot, resulting in a fall onto the
implement or ground, possibly causing serious injury.
▲ The gauge wheel tires can be in poor ground contact at any
time, even with the drill lowered in the field. They can
appear to be in ground contact, and spin easily, in multiple
conditions.
▲ The lift-assist tires can be in poor ground contact, or out of
ground contact, whenever the drill is lowered.
Shutdown and Storage
▲ Park on level ground.
▲ Unhitch and store the drill in an area where children
normally do not play.
Tire Safety
Tire changing can be dangerous and should be
performed by trained personnel using correct tools and
equipment.
▲ When inflating tires, use a clip-on chuck and extension hose
long enough for you to stand to one side–not in front of or
over tire assembly. Use a safety cage if available.
▲ When removing and installing wheels, use wheel-handling
equipment adequate for weight involved.

Hitching Tractor to Drill
The 3P1006NT is a Semi-Mounted 3-Point Category II
hitch implement.
Hitch Extension
If no hitch extension is required, skip to step 4.
On tractors with oversize tires, or unusual wheel bases,
the rear tractor tires may be too close to (or touch) drill
components when directly hitched. In this case, a hitch
extension kit is available (page 53).
Heavy Falling Object Hazard:
Never mount an extension hitch or setback kit by itself on the
drill. There is no top link on the drill to prevent the extension
from tipping forward, with risk of serious injury, or tipping
backward, causing equipment damage.
Extension: Hitch to the tractor FIRST.
Extension: Unhitch at the drill FIRST.
Equipment Damage Risk:
Great Plains CPH, PFH or SSH accessory hitches are not
compatible with the 3P1006NT.
3
Note: The Land Pride extension hitch is compatible with
most standard quick hitches.
Mount the extension on the tractor before hitching to the
drill.
Refer to Figure 3
1. Use a lift or hoist to bring the extension upright and
lift it high enough to engage with the lower arms of
the tractor 3-point.
2. Align the tractor-side (front) top link 1 with the
tractor top link arm, and secure with a pin provided
with the extension. The lift or hoist may be removed.
3. Adjust the tractor top link as needed, and swing the
extension until the tractor-side lower links 2 are
aligned with the tractor’s lower arms. Secure with
pins provided with the extension.
Semi-Mounted Hitching
If a hitch extension is required, mount it on the tractor
before hitching the drill.

Note: The implement-side (back) top link 3 is unused.
It provides a nearly ideal lifting point. Use a lower
hitch pin from the drill as needed.
4. Raise or lower tractor 3-point arms, or hitch
extension, as needed and pin lower arms to drill.
Upper arm is unused.
5. Set your tractor 3-point draft control to Float position.
Equipment Damage Risk:
Do not raise 3-point until after hydraulic and electrical
connection have been made.
14
Crushing Hazard:
You may be severely injured or killed by being crushed
between the tractor and drill. Do not stand or place any part
of your body between drill and moving tractor. Stop tractor
engine and set park brake before installing hitch pins.

Hydraulic Hose Hookup
Connect hydraulic system to tractor before lifting the drill.
The hydraulic system of the 3P1006NT drill has one
single-acting lift-assist cylinder. The cylinder raises the
rear of the drill during lift (tractor 3-point lift arms raise
the front).
Refer to Figure 4
6. Determine which tractor remote to use for lift assist,
and set the lever for that circuit to Float (to relieve
any pressure).
High Pressure Fluid Hazard:
Escaping fluid under pressure can have sufficient pressure to
penetrate the skin. Check all hydraulic lines and fittings before
applying pressure. Fluid escaping from a very small hole can
be almost invisible. Use paper or cardboard, not body parts,
and wear heavy gloves to check for suspected leaks. If injured,
seek immediate medical attention from a physician familiar
with this type of injury.
7. Connect the single lift hose to the Extend port of the
tractor remote.
Note: Prior to first use, adapt the 1⁄2 in. male NPT hose
fitting 1 to a connector compatible with the tractor.
Use liquid pipe thread sealant (not tape) on NPT.
A poppet style QD (Quick Disconnect) to 1⁄2 in. FNPT
coupler is available as part number 811-856C.
1
Bleeding Hydraulics
When the hydraulic system is first charged, and if air is
later allowed in the system, it is necessary to bleed it, or
lift may be uneven. See “Bleeding Hydraulics” starting
on page 46.

9. Coil-up and tie-up excess cable, allowing enough
slack for the drill to tilt back if the tractor 3-point lift
arms happen to be raised prior to the lift-assist
circuit.

Leveling the Drill
Perform leveling in representative field conditions. On
hard ground or pavement, coulters and openers may
prevent determination of drill level.
10. If caster swivel locks were engaged, retract the rods
and pin them up. See “Transporting” on page 22.

Stroke Control Spacers
The height of the drill at rear (when lowered) is adjusted
with a set of stroke control spacers 4 (part no.
810-442C) included with the drill. Five snap-around
spacers are stored on the storage rod for a combined
length of 61⁄2 inches (165 mm).
Refer to Figure 7 and the table at right
16. Remove the desired combination of stroke control
spacers from the lift-assist weldment storage rod 5
and install on the cylinder rod 6 . There is no factory
recommendation for this, as it depends on the tractor
used.
Index
Check Level
17. Lower drill until the cylinders rest on the stroke
control spacers. See “Drill Lift/Lower” on page 19.
18. Pull drill forward to put coulters and openers in
ground, and assure that lift-assist casters are in
trailing position. Set tractor brakes.
19. When correct level has been achieved, set a stop,
lock or reference indicator on the tractor’s hitch
control to prevent lowering below drill-level.
20. Check level of frame front-to-rear. If not level, adjust
the rear height with the stroke control spacers. If
changed, re-check front tool bar height, and
re-adjust tractor 3-Point lift arms. Repeat until level.
Stroke Control Spacer Combinations
Note: If planting in rolling terrain, it may be necessary
to adjust the lift assist cylinders manually with the
tractor hydraulics to allow the machine to float
backwards.

Operating Instructions
This section covers general operating procedures.
Experience, machine familiarity and the following
information will lead to efficient operation and good
working habits. Always operate farm machinery with
safety in mind.
Pre-Start Checklist
High Pressure Fluid Hazard:
Escaping fluid under pressure can have sufficient pressure to
penetrate the skin. Check all hydraulic lines and fittings before
applying pressure. Fluid escaping from a very small hole can
be almost invisible. Use paper or cardboard, not body parts,
and wear heavy gloves to check for suspected leaks. If injured,
seek immediate medical attention from a physician familiar
with this type of injury.
1. Carefully review “Important Safety Information”
starting on page 1.
2. Lubricate drill as indicated under “Lubrication and
Scheduled Maintenance” on page 47.
3. Check all tires for proper inflation. See “Tire
Inflation Chart” on page 57.
4. Check all bolts, pins and fasteners. Torque as shown
in “Torque Values Chart” on page 58.
5. Check drill for worn or damaged parts. Repair or
replace parts before going to the field.
6. Check hydraulic hoses, fittings and cylinders for
leaks. Repair or replace before going to the field.
7. Rotate each ground drive wheels to see that the
drives and meters are working properly and free
from foreign material.
8. Check that the caster pivots are unlocked.
WARNING
Falling hazard:
Watch your step when walking on drill ladder and walkboard.
Falling from drill could cause severe injury or death.

Lowering
The lift-assist cylinder is single-acting. Move the tractor
remote circuit lever to Retract. The drill to settles by
gravity. The cylinder piston drives oil back to the tractor
reservoir.
Note: Do not use Float to lower, or the drill will settle
suddenly.
If lowering from transport, parking or storage, it is first
necessary to raise the drill, remove the lock channel, and
install the stroke control spacers. See “Leveling the
Drill” on page 16.
1. Slowly move the lift circuit lever to Retract, until the
list-assist cylinder fully settles.

Caster Pivot Locks
To prevent side movement of the drill when transported
by trailer, the lift-assist casters may be locked in their
full-reversing orientation. The lift assist ONLY locks in
reverse.
Use this feature only for trailer transport. Do not use
these locks for semi-mounted 3-point towing or field
operations.
Locking Casters
Refer to Figure 10
1. With drill hitched, raise both tractor 3-point lift arms
and lift assist (page 19). Install lift lock channel 1 .
2. Pull or back drill onto trailer bed.
Note: On extremely narrow trailer beds, it may be
necessary to lock the casters before moving the
drill onto the trailer. Make sure drill is precisely
aligned for the final move, as maneuverability is
greatly reduced with lock pins in place.
3. On both casters lIft and turn spring loaded lock pin
plungers 2 90 degrees. Move in reverse, lock pins
snap into place in the caster plate cutouts 3 when
aligned under each lock tube.

Transporting
Instructions and advisories for transport depend on the
method of transport. Towing behind a tractor is covered
on this page under “Semi-Mounted 3-Point Transport”.
Transport via trailer is covered under “Trailer Transport”
on page 23.
Semi-Mounted 3-Point Transport
Tow the drill on its own tires only with a 3-point tractor.
Towing with any other hitch type is likely to result in loss of
control and a serious accident, with risk of injury or death,
and almost certain major equipment damage.
Towing the drill at high speeds or with a vehicle that is too
light can lead to loss of vehicle control and a serious road
accident, injury and death. To reduce the hazard, do not
exceed 20 mph. Check that your tractor has enough ballast to
handle the weight of the drill. Refer to your tractor operator’s
manual for ballast requirements.
Before transporting with a tractor, check these items:
1. Check that tractor is sufficient for towing the drill.
Tractor must have at least 100 horsepower (75 kW).
Use a tractor with adequate lift capacity, and that is
weighted to maintain steering control. See the table
on next page for weights of typical drill
configurations. Tractor must have sufficient front-end
weights.
2. Unload drill boxes. The drill can be transported with
full boxes of material (other than native Grass), but
the added weight increases stopping distance and
decreases maneuverability. Unload before
transporting if possible.
Failure of hydraulic cylinders or tractor circuit during
transport will cause drill to drop suddenly, which could lead to
serious road accidents, injury or death. To prevent an
accident, always install cylinder locks before transporting
drill.
Do not tow on drill wheels with caster locks installed. They are
unnecessary in semi-mounted towing and dramatically reduce
turning ability. Tractor towing with caster locks is likely to
result in equipment damage. If locks are installed, remove
them (page 21).
3. Raise drill completely (page 19).
4. Install lock channels on lift cylinders (page 19).
Note: The cylinder lock can be secured or removed only
after the drill is fully raised.
5. Check that caster locks are disengaged (page 21).
Keep Clearance in Mind
Remember that the drill may be wider than the tractor.
Allow safe clearance.
Observe Road Rules
Comply with all national, regional and local safety laws
when traveling on public roads.
22
Semi-mounted implements with rear lift-assist wheels
maneuver differently in field and highway transport, compared
to pull-type implements. Observe caution when turning and
transporting.
Do not transport with seed loaded in Native Grass box.
Heavier mix components settle to the bottom, which can
prevent drive system from operating, and results in irregular
seed rate and population distribution.

Trailer Transport
Load Maneuvering Hazard - Use care and planning when
loading or unloading the drill in trailer transport. The rear
casters may turn and force the drill off the trailer.
▲ Make sure the trailer is rated for the load.
▲ Make the trailer is wide enough for the load.
Unstable Load Hazard - Do not transport on a trailer of
insufficient width or length. Unless both caster tires are on the
bed, too few openers are supporting the entire drill. The load
may spill, with risk of serious injury or death to anyone
nearby, and certainty of major equipment damage.
▲ Make sure the load is secured properly.
Loading Trailer
1. Hitch suitable 3-point tractor with available hydraulic
remote (page 14).
2. Raise drill (page 19).
Loading with Casters Locked
3. Carefully line-up the tractor, drill and trailer, so that:
a. no turns are needed for the final movement, and
b. the casters are fully reversed.
Machine Damage Risks - The drill must be hitched to a
3-point tractor for any movement. Coulter or opener damage
is likely if unhitched movement is attempted. Observe all
hitching precautions.
Unloading Trailer
1. Check that casters are still locked.
2. Release cargo straps or chains.
3. Hitch suitable 3-point tractor with available hydraulic
remote (page 14).
4. Install caster swivel lock pins (page 21).
5. Carefully back the drill onto the trailer bed.
6. Lower the drill (page 20).
4. On a narrow trailer, confirm that caster pivot swivel
locks are still in place (page 21).
7. Secure the load with cargo straps or chains.
5. Raise drill (page 19).
6. Carefully tow drill from trailer.
Land Pride recommends locking casters prior to loading for
trailer transport, and leaving them locked for transport and
unloading. This reduces the risk of loading and transport
accidents which could result in significant implement damage.
7. Remove caster pivot swivel locks (if engaged,
page 21).
8. Unless arriving at planting ground, install lift-assist
cylinder transport locks (page 19).
1. Weights approximate, and can vary by hundreds of pounds based on material density, press wheel options, accessories and user
modifications. Weight kit figures presume 10 each 100 pound suitcase weights.

Material Rates Overview
Details of seed and fertilizer rate setting are found in the
Adjustments section, and rely on data from the Seed
Rate Manual.
Basic rate settings are found in the Seed Rate Manual
(part number 313-526B, normally located in the
Manual-Pak™ enclosure at front center of drill).
Rate setting controls are different for each box, but
independent for each box. Some boxes have more than
one control.
All chart rates, for all boxes, are approximate. Land Pride
strongly recommends calibration of each box to the

Seeding Depth Overview
Setting nominal planting depth, and achieving it
consistently, is affected by multiple adjustable drill
functions, which can interact. From greatest to least
effect they are:
Refer to Figure 12
1 Coulter Height (page 16)
The coulters prepare soil ahead of the openers, and
are typically set slightly deeper than the openers. The
openers thus only need to open the tilled shaft into a
V-shaped furrow. The openers cannot generally run
deeper than the coulters, and running them too close
to coulter depth may result in uneven seed depth.
2 Opener Depth (Press Wheel Height) (page 36)
Using the T-handle, in no-till conditions, opener depth
can be set near, and at any level above coulter depth.
In soft or conventionally tilled soil, the opener disc
depth is more independent of the coulters.
3 Row Unit Down Pressure (Spring) (page 34)
In most conditions, the factory spring setting is
sufficient to make a consistent furrow in the
coulter-prepared soil. In extremely heavy conditions,
with the coulters running at the desired depth, the
openers may be making a furrow of inconsistent
depth. Rather than increase the coulter depth, you
can increase opener down force at the row unit
springs.
4 Disc Blade Adjustments (as blades wear) (page 33)
As blades wear, the diameter of the discs, and their
contact gap, changes. Seeding depth will also change
(or become irregular), unless adjustments are made
to blade spacing and the T-handle setting. Generally,
the blades need to be replaced completely before
coulter height adjustments would be needed.

Acremeter Operation
The acremeter counts shaft rotations whenever the shaft
is rotating - this is with the drill lowered and in motion or
during crank operation. The meter is programmed to
display rotations as acres or hectares, when using all
rows, factory-specified tires and tire inflations.
Note: Unusual conditions and/or non-standard row
spacings can cause the acremeter tally to vary
from actual acres planted.
Normal Operating Sequence
Note: The acremeter counts rotations during drill
calibration (and if so, can be useful for calibration,
although the meter must be on, or moved to, the
shaft being cranked).
1. Record the acremeter reading at the start of planting
(and after calibration). The large “12345.6” format
display is the grand total area planted since meter
installation. If the display is blank, see “Dormant
Display” below.
2. Lower drill and plant. Acremeter counts shaft
rotations, calculates acres or hectares, and adds to
the running grand total.
3. During planting (drill lowered and moving forward),
the display blanks (goes dormant), but area tally
continues.
Figure 13
Electronic Acremeter
27378
4. When raised for turns, obstructions and transport,
the drive wheel stops, and the meter counts no
additional (non-planting) rotations.
5. Whenever shaft rotation stops, the LCD display
activates after 30 to 60 seconds, and remains visible
for 30 to 45 minutes.
6. At the completion of planting, record the final reading
or the grand total. If the display goes dormant before
you can read it, see “Dormant Display”.
7. Subtract the reading at step 1 from the reading at
step 6 for the total planted in the present session.
Dormant Display
Refer to Figure 14
To conserve power, the LCD display blanks itself most of
the time. If you need to read the display after it has
“timed out” and gone dormant:
• use the calibration crank to turn the jackshaft once, or
• gently tap or wave a magnet at either of the logo
spots 1 on the lower region of the display. Be careful
not to scratch the window.
When active, the lower left corner displays the
revolutions per acre for which the meter is
factory-programmed.

To get full performance from your drill, you need an
understanding of all component operations, and many
provide adjustments for optimal field results.
The 3P1006NT has double-disc 06 Series openers with
depth-controlling press wheels mounted on floating
opener frames. Opener bodies are staggered for easy
soil flow. All openers pivot on a common axis to maintain
consistent depth as the opener frame follows contours. A
spring provides the down pressure necessary for double
discs to open a seed furrow. The spring allows openers
to float into depressions and over obstructions. Individual
openers can be adjusted to account for tire tracks.
Even if your planting conditions rarely change, some of
these adjustment items need periodic attention due to
normal wear.
Dual Box Seed rate is controlled by adjustments for:
• Right Drive Type gearbox lever
• Seed Rate Handle at box (drill rear)
• Feed Cup Door (one each seed tube)
Native Grass rate is controlled by:
• Rate Reduction Sprockets (see manual 202-583M)
• Right Drive Type gearbox lever (drill front)
• Driven Sprocket at Native Grass Seed box
Small Seeds rate is controlled by a Rate Handle at box
(drill rear)
Fertilizer rate is controlled by a Rate Adjuster at box
(drill rear)
Seed and Fertilizer Rate
Planting Depth
Seed are applied by fluted feed meters driven by the
ground wheels. Independent mechanisms drive main
seed, fertilizer, native grass and small seeds application.
Setting nominal planting depth, and achieving it
consistently, is affected by multiple adjustable drill
functions, from greatest to least effect they are:
Main Box Seed rate is controlled by adjustments for:

Coulter Adjustments
Refer to Figure 15
A no-till coulter 1 , is mounted directly ahead of each
opener on the drill. The coulters cut through heavy trash
and make a groove in the soil for the openers. The
coulters are mounted on the drill frame so coulter cutting
depth changes as the drill is raised and lowered.
2
To set drill seeding depth, you must:
1. Set coulter depth by raising or lowering the front
drive wheel (see below).
2. Check front-to-back drill level and re-adjust lift-assist
stroke control spacers (page 17).
3. Set opener depth with T-handles
(page 36).
2
on press wheels
1
4. If soil conditions make it necessary, increase coulter
down pressure by adding weights (page 31).
Coulters normally operate fully down against their stops,
with the coulter springs compressing only occasionally
as the blades encounter obstructions.
Figure 15
Coulter
18645
If necessary, adjust individual coulters or openers to run
deeper for tire tracks, refer to “Coulter Depth
(Individual Rows)” on page 31.
The amount of coulter down force needed to cut a soil
groove varies with soil conditions. Adding weight or
shortening the coulter spring increases coulter down
pressure and cutting force.

Coulter Down Pressure
Available Coulter Force Per Row
The maximum down force at the coulters depends on:
• empty drill weight (page 23),
• extra weights added (page 31),
• down-force consumed by the opener discs (this can
range from 50-150 pounds), and;
• the current material loading (which declines to zero
during planting).
3P1006NT configurations typically are too light to reach
the factory down-force of 400 lbs at all rows. The table at
right shows typical forces available. Do not increase
coulter spring forces drill-wide unless weight is available.

Coulter Spring Length
Coulter springs are preset at 10 in. (25.4 cm), giving
coulters an initial operating force of 400 pounds before
the spring compresses. This setting is adequate for
many difficult no-till conditions.
1
In normal operation at target running depth, springs are
at full extension or only slightly compressed. They
compress briefly at obstructions and in denser soil.
• In heavy no-till conditions, you may observe the
springs in compression most of the time. This means
that the blades are not reaching the desired coulter
depth. If adequate drill weight is available, you can
increase the spring down-force to compensate.
• In light but rocky conditions, the factory setting may be
higher than needed. Extend blade life by reducing the
force at which the blades ride up over obstructions.
To adjust the coulter spring:

ground drive wheels), resulting in low seeding rates
and uneven seed depth. If high forces are required,
frame weights are probably required.

Machine Damage Risk:
Resetting coulter-spring length shorter than 93⁄4 in. may cause
premature failure of parts, and voids the warranty. No
3P1006NT configurations have enough weight to compress all
springs shorter than 93⁄4 in.

set group coulter height (page 16).
7. Lower the drill and pull forward 30 feet (10m).
8. Check coulter blade to opener blade (furrow

Drill Weight Adjustment
In heavy no-till conditions, or if it is otherwise necessary
to increase coulter spring force, extra frame weight is
probably required (or the higher forces will just lift the drill
off the ground, resulting in unreliable ground drive
operation).
Adding weight requires the optional weight kit and
user-provisioned standard “suitcase” tractor weights (kit
does not include weights). See page 56 for ordering and
page 83 for installation.
The kit includes two brackets. Each bracket accepts up
to five 100 pound (45 kg) weights. The following table

Disc Blade Adjustments
Opener disc angle and stagger is not adjustable, but
disc-to-disc spacing is, and may need attention as discs
experience normal wear. Spacers must be reset when
blades are replaced.
Refer to Figure 21
The ideal spacing causes the blades to be in contact for
about one inch. If you insert two pieces of paper between
the blades, the gap between them should be
1⁄ to 13⁄ in. (1.3 to 4.4 cm).

If the contact region is significantly larger or smaller (or
there is no contact at all), it needs to be adjusted by
moving one or more spacer washers. If the contact
region varies with blade rotation, one or both blades is
likely bent and in need of replacement.

Opener Depth (Press Wheel Height)
A press wheel attached to each opener body controls
seeding depth. To maintain consistent depth, the
relationship between the bottom of the opener discs and
press wheel is fixed upwardly by an adjustable stop on
each opener.
The press wheels also close the seed trench and gently
press soil over seed. To provide consistent soil firming,
press wheels are free to move down from normal
operating position. This maintains pressing action even if
opener discs encounter obstructions or hard soil.
Refer to Figure 27
Set opener seeding depth by adjusting press-wheel
height. To adjust, first raise drill slightly, then lift and slide
T-handles on top of openers.
• For shallower seeding, slide T-handles toward drill.
• For deeper seeding, slide T-handles away from drill.

Maintenance and Lubrication
Proper servicing and maintenance is the key to long
implement life. With careful and systematic inspection,
you can avoid costly maintenance, downtime and repair.
Always turn off and remove the tractor key before making
any adjustments or performing any maintenance.
Crushing Hazard:
Always have frame sufficiently blocked up when working on,
and particularly under implement. You may be severely injured
or killed by being crushed under a falling implement.
High Pressure Fluid Hazard:
Check all hydraulic lines and fittings before applying pressure.
Use paper or cardboard, not body parts, and wear heavy
gloves to check for suspected leaks. Escaping fluid under
pressure can have sufficient pressure to penetrate the skin.
Fluid escaping from a very small hole can be almost invisible.
If an accident occurs, seek immediate medical attention from a
physician familiar with this type of injury.
After using drill for several hours, check all bolts to be
sure they are tight.
1. Securely block drill before working on it.
2. Lubricate areas listed under “Lubrication and
Scheduled Maintenance” on page 47.
3. Clean any fittings that do not take grease.
4. Inflate tires as specified on “Tire Inflation Chart” on
page 57.
5. Inspect hydraulic hoses for cuts, cracks and aging.
Check fittings for evidence of leaks.
6. Replace any worn, damaged or illegible safety
decals. Order new decals from your Land Pride
dealer. See “Safety Decals” on page 5.

It is not necessary to operate the meter drive shaft for
clean-out. With the Seed Rate set to zero, nothing moves
inside the seed cups; however, an inspection of the flutes
for excess wear and damage does require shaft rotation.

Set the Seed Rate Handle to 100 and disengage the
lock-out hub. With openers lowered to engage the clutch,
the seed meter jackshaft can be slowly turned with the
calibration crank, while another person inspects the
flutes from the open seed boxes.
Native Grass Box Clean-Out
If a suitable vacuum is available, open the Native Grass
box lid, and vacuum out remaining seed.
If too much seed remains for the vacuum, or no vacuum
is available:
1. Raise and lock up the drill. Place a tarp under the
Native Grass seed tubes.
2. Set the Native Grass (right gearbox) Drive Type to 4.
Optionally install the smallest final Driven sprocket.
3. Install the calibration crank, and turn the drive
system until no seed flows from Native Grass tubes.
4. Vacuum out any residual material from above.
Equipment Damage Risk:
Water wash-out is not recommended for the Native Grass box,
particularly if seed lubricants have been used. Water may
cause build-up of solidified residue. Filler material used in
native grass mixes can also present problems.

Fertilizer Box Clean-Out
After applying fertilizer, clean the box as soon as
possible. Fertilizers often contain corrosive chemicals.
Refer to Figure 32
With a small scoop or can, remove as much fertilizer as
possible from drill boxes.
Clean-out releases material across the entire length of a
box. Have collection equipment prepared.
Release all clean-out latches on the drill, and open
clean-out door. Leave door open until after washout.
Refer to Figure 33
Wash inside of fertilizer box with high pressure water.

Let drill boxes dry before closing clean-out doors.
Small Seeds Box Clean-Out
1. Open box lid and scoop out as much seed as
possible.
2. To recover remaining seed, place a collection tarp
under the small seeds tubes at the openers.
3. Raise drill.
4. Set seed rate handle to 100.
5. Rotate calibration crank or end wheel until no seed
flows.
6. If a vacuum cleaner is available, remove any residual
seed from top of meters.
Disc Maintenance
Coulter and opener disc blades wear in normal service,
becoming smaller in diameter. Periodically check blade
diameter, and replace when below the recommended
limits. Discs can also be dented by unusual field hazards,
or bent. Replace damaged blades immediately.
Coulter Disc Replacement
Replace 17 in. (43.2 cm) coulter blades when adjusting
drill level becomes difficult. Two signs that blade
replacement is indicated are:
Opener Disc Replacement
Replace 15 in. (38.1 cm) opener discs when
re-positioning spacers no longer brings both blades into
the contact as recommended at “Disc Blade
Adjustments” on page 33.
• Coulter blade diameter is close to, or below,
15 in. (38.1 cm).
Consult updated Parts Manual for latest disc, or disc
assembly part number.

Chain Maintenance
Initially check the drive chains after the first 10 hours of
drill use. The slack of new chains tends to increase
during the first few hours of operation due to seating.
Thereafter, check the chains every 100 hours.
1
Lubricate chains any time there is a chance of moisture,
and when being stored at the end of the planting season.
2
Chain Slack
Refer to Figure 34, which, for clarity, greatly exaggerates
slack, and omits the idlers.
1. Measure the span 1 for allowable slack:
Locate the longest span of each chain (usually the
span which does not run through the idlers).
2. Determine the ideal slack:
Long chains (over 36 in. / 91cm):
1⁄ in. per ft. (21 mm/m)
4
Vertical short chains:
1⁄ in. per ft. (21 mm/m)
4
Horizontal short chains:
1⁄ in. per ft. (42 mm/m)
2
Figure 34
Measuring Chain Slack
27264
Figure 35
Chain Clip Orientation
26482
3. Measure the current slack 2 :
Acting at a right angle to the chain span at the centre
of the span, deflect the chain in both directions. The
slack is the distance of the movement.
4. Adjust the idlers for ideal slack.
Whenever mounting a chain, make sure the clip at the
removable link is oriented to minimize snags.
Refer to Figure 35 (arrow shows chain direction)
Install clip with open end facing away from direction of
chain travel (shown by gray or striped arrows in chain
routing diagrams).
Seed Flap Replacement
Refer to Figure 36
To replace a seed flap 1 , use needle nose pliers or
similar tool to grasp “T” top of flap. Pull upward to remove
flap from metal bracket 2 .
2
Push new seed flap 1 down through metal bracket 2
until flap snaps into place with “T” top resting on top of
bracket.
If a seed firmer is also installed, it may be necessary to
shorten the flap.

Bleeding Hydraulics
High Pressure Fluid Hazard:
Escaping fluid under pressure can have sufficient pressure to
penetrate the skin. Check all hydraulic lines and fittings before
applying pressure. Fluid escaping from a very small hole can
be almost invisible. Use paper or cardboard, not body parts,
and wear heavy gloves to check for suspected leaks. If injured,
seek immediate medical attention from a physician familiar
with this type of injury.
Check that tractor hydraulic reservoir is full.
Bleed pressurized lines only at:
JIC (Joint Industry Conference, 37° flare) or
NPT (National Pipe Thread, tapered thread) fittings.
Avoid bleeding at:
ORB (O-Ring Boss)
Never bleed pressurized lines at:
QD (Quick Disconnect) fittings.

1. Check hydraulic fluid in tractor reservoir and fill
reservoir to proper level. Add fluid to system as
needed. A low reservoir level may introduce air into
the system, causing jerky or uneven cylinder
movements.
2. Hitch drill to tractor (page 14).
3. If lift-assist lock channel or stroke control spacers are
installed, raise drill and remove them.
4. Fully lower drill (page 19).
5. Set tractor lift circuit to Float and shut off tractor.
6. Crack (slightly loosen) JIC connection
fitting.
