Safety
Chemicals
•
Use extreme care when cleaning, filling or making
adjustments.
•
Always read granular chemical or treated seed
manufacturer’s warning labels carefully and
remember them.
•
Wear close fitting clothing and appropriate personal
protective equipment for the job as specified by
the chemical and/or seed manufacturer.
•
Always wear safety goggles, breathing
apparatus and gloves when handling with granular
chemical or treated seed.
•
Do not feed any treated seed to livestock. Treated
seed is poisonous and may cause harm to persons
or livestock.
•
Wash exposed skin immediately - do not leave
chemicals on your skin.
•
Properly store chemicals in original containers with
labels intact per the manufacturer’s instructions.
•
Always follow the manufacturer’s operating
instructions and warning labels when operating an
ammonia tank with the equipment.
• Do Not enter tank unless another
person is present and the tractor engine
has been shut off.
Danger
Failure to comply may result in death or serious injury.
Read Operator’s Manual and decals on Ammonia tank before operating Air Drill.
Become familiar with all warnings, instructions, and controls.
Always wear gloves and goggles when transferring or handling ammonia.
Always stay clear of hose and valve openings.
Always be sure pressure is relieved before disconnecting hoses or parts.
Always secure connecting parts and safety chains before towing ammonia trailer.
Always have ample water available in case of exposure to ammonia liquid or gases.

Safety
Transporting
• Be aware of the height, length and width of
implement. Make turns carefully and be aware of
obstacles and overhead electrical lines.
• Empty tanks before transporting. Do Not Exceed
20 M.P.H. (32 kph) with an empty air cart.
• Use an agricultural tractor that is large enough with
sufficient braking capacity so that the weight of
the loaded equipment towed does not exceed 1.5
times the weight of the tractor.
• Use flashing amber warning lights, turn signals and
SMV emblems when on public roads.
• Do not transport in poor visibility.
• The slow moving vehicle (SMV) emblem and
reflectors must be secured and be visible on the
machine for transport.
• Avoid soft surfaces, the additional wing weight on
the centre wheels could cause the machine to sink.
• Ensure safety chain is attached correctly to the
towing vehicle and the hitch of the air cart.
• Check that wings are firmly seated in transport
wing stops, and lock pins installed.
• Secure transport locks on depth control cylinders.
• Be familiar with and adhere to local laws.
Hydraulics
• Do not search for high pressure hydraulic leaks
without hand and face protection. A tiny, almost
invisible leak can penetrate skin, thereby requiring
immediate medical attention.
• Use cardboard or wood to detect leaks - never your
hands.
• Double check that all is clear before operating
hydraulics.
• Never remove hydraulic hoses or ends with
machine elevated. Relieve hydraulic pressure
before disconnecting hydraulic hoses or ends.
• Maintain proper hydraulic fluid levels.
• Keep all connectors clean for positive connections.
• Ensure all fittings and hoses are in good condition.
• Do not stand under wings.

7000 Air Cart
Introduction
The MORRIS 7000 Series Air Cart represents the
latest in Air Cart design technology. There are four
sizes available, a 130 bushel (4,730 liters) cart, a 180
bushel (6,550 liters) cart, a 240 bushel (8,730 liters)
car t and a 300 bushel (10,910 liters) cart with
hydraulic fan drive or an engine fan drive. The 130
and 180 bushel carts incorporate a three wheel,
wide-stance high clearance frame. The 240 and 300
bushel carts incorporate a four wheel, wide-stance
high clearance frame. The high clearance frame
gives easy access to the metering wheels and the
easiest cleanout in the industry. The 7130, 7180,
7240 and 7300 carts have a 60:40 tank split. The
tank lids are easily accessed by the convenient
stairs and tank walk-through.
Each tank has it’s own metering system and metering
drive. Included with the unit is a sample collector box
that an operator can use to confirm seeding rates.
The meter drives are positive, convenient,
simple to set and are ground driven through an electric
clutch. The metering system incorporates spiral fluted
wheels. The size of the metering wheel is matched to
the number of outlets on the secondary divider giving
the best in accuracy. The spiral fluted metering wheels
combined with the multi-range transmission allows a
full range of products like Canola to peas to be seeded
without having to change the metering wheels.
The Air Cart comes equipped with a monitor that
senses both bin levels, motion of both metering shafts
and fan speed. It also gives ground speed and provides
an acremeter.
High quality 2 1/2” (64 mm) diameter hose is standard
equipment for the distribution system. The patented
flat fan divider, which is matched in size to the
metering wheel, ensures final accurate distribution of
the product.
Options
Acre Tally
The tamper proof mechanical acre tally counter mounts
onto the crank handle shaft. The acre tally counter
gives accumulated acres and can not be reset to zero.
Second Clutch
The second clutch is mounted to the rear tank metering
shaft.
This enables the operator to stop or start the rear
metering while the front metering continues. This is
especially useful for spot fertilizing.
The clutch is electric operated and is switched from
inside the tractor cab.
Note: The primary clutch still controls the front
shaft and back shaft without the secondary
clutch.

Metering System
The 7000 Series Air Cart uses a combination of
metering wheels and spacers shown below. The
metering wheel is individually sized to correspond to
the number of outlets at the connected secondary head
and the spacers make up the space between the wheel
and the body. Some openings may be blanked off
depending on the number of secondary divider heads
used on the seeding tool.
Note: Before putting product into the tanks check
the following:
(a) The slider plates are set correctly for product being
applied.
(b) The Clean-out doors are fully closed and sealed.
(c) The plastic bag covering the fan is removed.
The 7000 Series Air Cart can meter all types of seeds
and fertilizers by simply adjusting the slider plates.
See “Slider Settings” for more details.
Different rates are easily obtained using the selection
of quick change sprockets that attach to either of the
two meter transmissions.
Important
Ensure distribution system is balanced. It
is very important that head outlets only vary
by one . (i.e. use only 7 and 8 together, 8 and
9 together, 9 and 10 together)
Note: The number of outlets on the divider head
must match the metering wheel size.

Secondary Hose Installation
Important
The lengths of the 15/16” (24 mm) diameter hoses are
very important.
For Accurate distribution the secondary hoses have
to be arranged by length symmetrically about the
centre line.
The longest hoses have to be in the centre of the
divider head. These hoses would normally feed the
openers furthest away from the head.
•
Ensure that the secondary hoses 15/16” (24 mm)
diameter do not run higher than 3” (76 mm) above
the height of the flat fan divider head.
•
Allow an extra 3” (76 mm) of hose before cutting
secondary hose for fitting in the seed boot.
•
Always ensure that the secondary hoses are
sufficiently long to accommodate tripping of trips.
•
Avoid sharp bends in any of the hoses.
•
Check for pinch points and clearances when folding
in and out of transport.
No. 10
5-26
Hot water is the only acceptable lubricant for
the installation of the secondary hose.
The supplier advised MORRIS that WD-40 or any
other lubricant (i.e. liquid detergent) will have a
negative effect on the chemical stability of the
hose, resulting in the degradation and failure of
the hose due to Environmental Stress Cracking.
Important
Distribution uniformity will be adversely
affected if hoses are incorrectly installed.

Slider Setting
The slider plates come in 4 different sizes. Each slider
plate matches a specific metering wheel.
Note: The slider plates must match the metering
wheel size.
The slider plates have three positions to allow all types
of seeds and fertilizers to be metered.
Important
When adjusting the sliders to the closed position
follow the procedures below:
The slider plate positions are closed, open, and
removed as indicated on diagrams. (See next page)
1) Locate the key-way in the metering wheel.
Rotate shaft until high spot is located, this is
the key-way location. Mark shaft for future
reference.
• Position slider as indicated below and tighten nut
to hold slider tightly in place.
2) Rotate metering shaft until key-way is in
location shown below.
• Position cover plate as indicated below and tighten
wing nuts to hold cover plate in place.
Note: For Oats or Coarse Grains, if it appears
bridging is occurring, remove sliders and
recalibrate.
3) Keep the slider mounting plate flat on the
metering body surface. See diagram A.
If the slider is tipped up when set to the closed
position interference with the metering wheel will
occur.
Note: In the closed position there is a gap of
.070" (1.778 mm) between the metering
wheel and the top edge of the slider
plate.

size sprocket as illustrated in the previous diagram.
Note: Incorrect tire size sprocket will cause
inaccurate application rates.
Check that the correct tire sprockets are installed on
your machine. These sprockets are located on the
inner side of each transmission input shaft and are
driven by the spacing sprocket.
The tire sprocket must be matched to the tire size of
the air cart.
Determining Tire Sprocket
Tire Sprocket
Tire Size
(Good-Year)
16.5L x 16.1
Factors that may affect the tire circumference and in
turn metering rates and monitor PPM values are as
follows:
a) Tire size tolerances can vary +/- 4%.
21.5L x 16.1
b) Tire pressure.
c) Field soil conditions (firm-unworked versus soft-worked)
d) Tank capacity (empty tanks versus full tanks)
e) Tire manufacturer (Good-Year versus Firestone)
Note: The values used for monitor PPM values
and tire size sprockets is based upon the
tire circumference of Good-Year tires at
proper pressure with half full tanks in
normal working field conditions. (They are
all based in reference to 16.5L x 16.1 tires.

- PPM = 6816
- Tire sprocket - 40 tooth
- Tire Circumference - 109” (2.7686 m)
To determine tire sprocket for other tires not listed in
the chart or to check the actual tire circumference
use the following equation:
•
The tire circumference should be checked under
normal field conditions with tanks half full.
•
Mark tire and starting point.
•
Drive air cart one revolution of tire.
•
Mark ending point.
•
Measure distance from starting point to ending
point to get the rolling circumference of the tire.

Rate Chart Use
The rate chart applies to all spacings listed below.
METER SHAFT SPROCKET
The spacing sprocket must be matched to the seeding
tool trip spacing see “Spacing Sprocket”.
QUICK CHANGE
SPROCKET
The charts should only be used as a guide. Specific
rates can be achieved by using the rate check method
as outlined under “Rate Calibration”.
To determine a seed/fertilizer rate from the chart:
• Go to the desired rate along the line marked
“Standard” of a specific graph. (i.e. 95 lbs/acre of
wheat)
• Go straight up from that point to where that line is
intersected by the graph. This will give the sprocket
size required to give the particular rate chosen.
IDLER
• At this intersection go straight across to the vertical
line of the graph. This will give the sprocket size
required to give the particular rate chosen. (i.e. 95
lbs/acre of wheat requires a 29 tooth sprocket)
Note: The rate charts should only be used as a
guide. Variation in seed size, density,
shape, tire pressure and wheel sinkage are
all factors that can influence the seed rate.
• Change the Quick Change Sprocket see “Metering
Rate Adjustment”.
• Perform a rate check
to confirm the seed
rate see “Rate
Calibration”.

Extra Low Rates
Although the charts show a minimum rate of 35 lbs.
per acre for fertilizer and 20 lbs. per acre for seed,
sometimes this is not low enough, especially when
product is being metered from both tanks.
METERSHAFT SPROCKET
Rates under the values mentioned can be achieved
by replacing the standard 25 tooth sprocket on the
front of the transmission with either a 35 or 40 tooth
sprocket.
The rates obtained when using the 35 and 40 tooth
sprocket are shown on the rate charts beside the
respective size sprocket.
When both tanks are being used to meter the same
product without the Banding Kit, then the 25 tooth
sprocket on each transmission must be changed. Now
both transmissions will have the same size metershaft
sprocket.
QUICK CHANGE SPROCKET
If the Banding Kit is installed, then only the 25 tooth
sprocket on the front or rear transmission needs to
be changed.
The same metering chain can be used with these larger
sprockets up to a certain size of quick change
sprocket.
Rate
To determine a rate from the chart:
•
Go to the desired rate along the line next to the
size of metershaft sprocket used.
•
Go straight up from that point to where that line is
intersected by the graph line of the particular
product being metered.
•
At this intersection go straight across to the
vertical line of the graph. This will give the sprocket
size required to give the particular rate chosen.
•
Change the quick change sprocket and repeat the
rate check to confirm the seed rate.
•
Repeat the above procedure for the other tank.

Operation
Rate Calibration
The practice of doing a rate calibration is strongly
recommended as it will confirm the actual amounts
of product being put into the ground.
Note: The fan must not be running when a rate
check is performed.
Checking the rate on the 7000 Series Air Cart is very
simple.
BEFORE FILLING TANK
The following procedure is one that should be followed
for every rate calibration or change of product.
•
- ENSURE PROPER SLIDER CLEARANCE IS SET FOR
EACH METER WHEEL
- ENSURE TANK CLEANOUT DOOR IS FULLY CLOSED.
Refer to calibration chart for the correct number of
turns of the crank. (See page 5-47 and 5-48 for
imperial and page 11-2 and 11-3 for metric charts.)
•
Remove the wing nuts on the collector bottom.
•
Remove the bottom of the collector.
•
Remove the metering chain from the transmission
that is not being checked.
•
Check that the desired rate change sprocket is
installed in the transmission.
BEFORE APPLYING PRODUCT
- SET RATE ACCORDING TO THE PROCEDURE AND
RATE CHART DESCRIBED IN THE OPERATORS MANUAL.
- TAKE A SAMPLE AND ADJUST THE RATE, IF
NECESSARY.
AIR LEAKS AFFECT METERING ACCURACY
- ENSURE ALL SEALS ARE PROPERLY POSITIONED
AND ALL LIDS ARE TIGHTLY CLOSED.
N19025
•
Turn the crank until material begins to fall through
the collector body.
•
Slide rate check box on the collector body.
•
Turn the crank in direction of the arrow (Counter
Clockwise) the required number of turns.

COLLECTOR
Note: Incorrect rates will occur if crank is rotated
clockwise.
For Fine Seeds it is recommended to take
a large sample. Typically to take a sample for
1/2 acre (1/4 hectare) or 1 acre (1/2 hectare).
Example:
COLLECTOR
BOTTOM
For 1/2 acre sample for a 41 ft. wide
cultivator with a 7180:
From the chart on page 5-46
Turns required for 1/10 acre = 11.33
Turns required for 1/2 acre = 11.33 x 5 = 56.65
Rate = lbs/acre
= 1/2 acre sample weight (lbs.) x 2
WING NUT
CRANK
From the chart on page 11-2
Turns required for 1/10 hectare = 28
Turns required for 1/4 hectare = 28 x 2.5 = 70
Turns required for 1/2 hectare = 28 x 5 = 140
Rate = kg/hectare
= 1/4 hectare sample weight (kg) x 4
= 1/2 hectare sample weight (kg) x 2

7000 Air Cart
Operation
Rate Calibration - Continued
• Weigh the sample by using tarp straps to hook rate
check box to spring scale.
Note: Remember to subtract the weight of the rate
check box from the total sample weight.
• Check this rate against rate required.
For 1/10 acre sample:
Rate = lbs/acre = Sample Weight (lbs) x 10
For 1/10 hectare sample:
Rate = kg/ha = Sample Weight (kg) x 10
• If a different rate is required then increase or
decrease the size of the rate change sprocket.
Increasing the sprocket size will increase the rate
and vice versa.
RATE CHECK BOX
• Replace the bottom of the collector.
Note: Arrow directions on the collector bottom
must point in the same direction as the ones
on the collector body.
• Follow the above procedure to check the rate of
the other tank.
SCALE
Alternative Rate Calibration
An alternate rate calibration method takes into
account wheel sinkage and variations in tire
circumference.
See the Monitor Section 6 (Application Rate). Instead
of turning the calibration crank, the metering drive clutch
is engaged and the seeder is pulled through a distance
that equals at least 1/10 of an acre (1/10 hectare).
Note: Fan should not be running for either rate
check method.

Operation
Seeding Fine Seeds (Canola, Mustard, etc.)
When seeding fine seeds such as canola or mustard,
the slow speed transmission has to be engaged to
ensure the low rates required for these products.
Note: Seed must be placed in the front tank.
The slow speed transmission is incorporated in the
FRONT Posi-Drive Transmission.
•
To engage the slow speed, remove the large hairpin
from the front shaft and install through the sleeve
and shaft located at the rear of the transmission.
HAIRPIN LOCATION FOR:
Note: Shaft will have to be rotated to align holes
for pin insertion.
•
To disengage the slow speed, reverse the above
procedure.
•
Rate checks can be performed the same way as
for other seeds.
•

Usually it is necessary to reduce the fan rpm when
seeding fine seeds. See Fan Speed for specific
fan speeds.
HAIRPIN
Applying Inoculant
When inoculant is applied at the time of seeding, then
once the Air Cart has been filled, the fill-lids should
be left open and the fan run for 5-10 minutes at full
rpm to dry the seed.
Calibration must be done after the seed is dried,
otherwise the calibration will be incorrect.

Note: If the seed is not dried then the seed will
have a tendency to bridge and not meter into
the air stream.

7000 Air Cart
Operation
Fan Speed Setting
Hydraulic Fan Drive
The hydraulic motor used on the 7000 Series Air
Car t requires a load sensing or closed centre
hydraulic system with flow control.
These systems provide only the necessary amount
of oil to operate the fan at a specific speed.
The hydraulic motor will also work on some open
centre systems, however the respective tractor
manufacturer should be consulted before the hydraulic
driven fan is installed.
Fan speed is adjusted by increasing the amount of oil
being delivered to the motor. This is done by adjusting
the respective flow control valve until the desired rpm
is displayed on the monitor.
Note: There is a one-way check valve installed in
the hydraulic circuit. If the fan does not rotate,
then move hydraulic lever in the opposite
direction; this will engage the fan. This valve
prevents damage to the hydraulic systems
when the fan is shut OFF, by allowing the fan
to freewheel.
7000 Air Cart
Hydraulic Drive
IMPORTANT
Run hydraulic fan drive at lowest rpm
possible (1,000-2,000) for 5 -10 minutes before
operating at set rpm. This is required to
warm up the hydraulic fluid. Cold hydraulic
fluid will cause pressure spikes in the system
that will damage the case drain seal in the
orbit motor.
December 2008

Operation
Fan Speed
Adequate air volume is necessary at all times to carry
the product in the air stream. Air volume can be
controlled by adjusting hydraulic oil flow on hydraulic
fan drives or adjusting engine speed on engine fan
drive models.
Note: It is recommended that after a rain or dew
the fan be run two to three minutes to expel
any moisture in the system.
Air volume hence fan speed requirements will vary
with:
(a) Ground speed
(b) Metering rate
(c) Number of primary runs
(d) Width of machine
(e) Density and size of material
Important
Keep fan impeller blades clean at all times.
Excessive fan speed can cause seed damage, seed
bouncing and premature wear of the system.
Generally fan speed is adequate if product flows
through the hoses without surging and the hoses
empty quickly and evenly when the system shuts
down.
The table lists suggested minimum fan speeds for
certain products. The table should be used only as
a guide. If plugging or surging occurs increase the
fan speed to eliminate the problem.
Note: Once fan speed is properly set, be sure to
adjust the monitor fan alarm setting
accordingly. See Monitor Section “Monitor
Programing”.

Fertilizer Banding Kit
The fertilizer banding kit joins the two transmissions
together, so only the front or rear transmission needs
to be set for different rates.
The product is then metered at a 40:60 split in the
rate. The front tank meters 40% of the desired rate
and the rear tank meters 60% of the desired rate.
Important
Remove the meter drive chain from the
transmission not in use. Severe damage to
drive components will result otherwise.
To determine the rate sprocket and calibration of Air
Cart use the following procedure:
Using Rear Transmission
The amount collected from the rear tank is 60% the
total amount being metered into the air stream.
•
Multiply the desired rate (DR) by 60% to determine
the rate being metered from the rear tank (RR).
DR x .6 = RR
•
Use the rear tank rate (RR) to determine the rate
change sprocket to use. See Rate Charts Section
•
Remove the chain joining the two transmissions
before taking rate calibration samples from rear
tank only. See Rate Calibration Section.
This will prevent material from being deposited into
the front collector body that is not being checked and
avoid a possible plugging of the hoses.
•
The sample taken from the tank should be 60% of
the desired rate as determined above (RR).
Note: Supplied in section “Fertilizer Banding Kit”
(at rear of book) are rate charts which are
based on the 60/40 split for easy rate
sprocket selection.
Rear Transmission
Example:
For a desired rate (DR) of 100 lbs. per acre:
Determine Rear Tank Rate (RR)
DR x .6 = RR
100 lbs/acre x .6 = 60 lbs/acre
100 kg/ha x .6 = 60 kg/ha
Determine sprocket size required to apply 60
lbs/acre from Rate Chart on Air Cart.
Using Front Transmission
The amount collected from the front tank is 40% the
total amount being metered into the air stream.
•
Multiply the desired rate (DR) by 40% to determine
the rate being metered from the front tank (RF).
DR x .4 = RF
•
Use the front tank rate (RF) to determine the rate
change sprocket to use. See Rate Charts Section
•
Remove the chain joining the two transmissions
before taking rate calibration samples from front
tank only. See Rate Calibration Section.
This will prevent material from being deposited into
the rear collector body that is not being checked and
avoid a possible plugging of the hoses.
•
Front Transmission
Example:
For a desired rate (DR) of 100 lbs. per acre:
Determine Front Tank Rate (RF)
DR x .4 = RF
100 lbs/acre x .4 = 40 lbs/acre
100 kg/ha x .4 = 40 kg/ha
Determine sprocket size required to apply 40
lbs/acre from Rate Chart on Air Cart.
The sample taken from the tank should be 40% of
the desired rate as determined above (RF).

7000 Air Cart
Operation
Hydraulic Fan Drive
The orbit motor on the fan requires tractor to have
either a load sensing hydraulic system or a closed
centre hydraulic system with flow control.
Maximum flow required is 13 U.S. g.p.m. (49 l)
minimum pressure of 2100 p.s.i.(14,469 kPa).
However smaller flows can be used depending on the
product being metered.
For correct operation of the fan the hydraulic motor
must be coupled to the priority valve (if tractor is so
equipped) in the hydraulic valve bank.
Check with the tractor manual or manufacturer to
determine if or which spool is a “priority valve”.
Speed fluctuations will result if the fan is not connected
to the priority valve if hydraulic system is equipped
with a priority valve.
Orbit Motor Drive
Ensure couplers are free of dirt and are clean when
connecting the fan hydraulics to the tractor.
The fan has a one way check valve that only allows
oil to flow in one direction. It may be necessary to
reverse the hydraulic hoses at the couplers to obtain
the correct operation.
A piston motor creates leakage past the internal
components for lubrication. This oil needs to go back
to the oil reservoir, the lowest pressure possible. The
motor has a 3/8” (10 mm) diameter drain line. This
line must be connected directly into the tractor
hydraulic reservoir to ensure that there is zero back
pressure in the drainline, otherwise damage will result
to the motor.
IMPORTANT
Typical shaft seal failures occur when the
case drain quick coupler is not attached
properly or if the Air Cart is started in cold
weather - cold weather makes the hydraulic
oil very viscous - any time the Air Cart is
started in cold weather the tractor hydraulics
should be allowed to warm up first and then
the fan should be started and run at the
slowest speed possible for 5-10 minutes
before going to full speed.

Operating Guidelines
There are a number of areas that can cause problems
when seeding. Listed below are specific points that
should be addressed at all times. Following these
guidelines will ensure better crop emergence and
consequently the potential for better yields.
An improperly levelled seeding tool cause uneven
depth which could result in poor emergence.
It is important that the seeding tool is levelled both
side to side and front to back.
Check Tire Pressures
•
Side to Side Level
Ensure all tires are inflated to their specified
pressure. Incorrect tire pressure can cause depth
variations.
Level Seeding Tool Side to Side
•
Check the depth of each shovel on the back row.
•
Adjust side to side level as necessary. See seeding
tool manual for more details.
Level Seeding Tool Front to Rear
Front to Back Level
•
Poor front to rear levelling causes ridging as shown.
•
Check the depth of two adjacent shanks normally
one on the front row and one on the rear row.
•
Adjust level as necessary. See seeding tool
manual for more details.
Worn Seeding Tool Parts
•
Shanks that are bent cause uneven depth and they
should be repaired or replaced.
•
Trip mechanisms that are worn can also cause poor
depth control and any worn parts should be repaired
or replaced.
Ridging Front to Back
Packing
•
Packing behind the seeding unit is strongly
recommended. This improves germination and
helps reduce moisture loss and erosion.
•
In wet conditions the head land should be done
last to prevent over packing.
Mounted Packers

Operation
Operating Guidelines - Continued
Turning
• Avoid sharp turns. Backing up of the outer wings
with the seeding tool in the ground has a tendency
to plug the seed boot with soil.
• Raise seed boots fully before making sharp turns
or backing machine.
Seed Rate Settings
Note: It is strongly recommended to consult local
agricultural extension offices for allowable
product rates, which are dependent on soil
moisture and type.
• Remove any caked-on material from sliders and
metering wheels.
• Ensure all sliders are properly set and wheels turn
freely.
• Check product rates carefully by performing a
calibration check.
Note: If equipped with a granular tank, the lines
must be blocked off when not in use.
Fertilizer Application
• Avoid using fertilizers that absorb moisture readily,
especially during periods of high humidity.
• Also avoid fertilizers that contain a high percentage
of fine dust, as these materials can plug metering
wheels and coat the inside of seed distribution
system.
Fan Setting
• Run fan at recommended speed. If plugging or
surging occurs increase the fan speed to eliminate
the problem.
• Allow tractor hydraulic oil to warm-up thoroughly
prior to seeding. Cold oil will cause slower fan
speeds (Hydraulic driven fan).
Product Application
• Control product application with the clutch switch
in tractor.
Note: Do not attempt to meter product when fan
is not running. Damage to the metering
wheels may occur.
• Have machine moving forward before lowering seed
boots to avoid plugging.
• To prevent skipping, allow 15 feet (5 m) of forward
travel to ensure air system has delivered product
to seed boots.

Operating Guidelines - Continued
Adjustments and Operational Checks
•
When changing fields and periodically throughout
the day the seeding tool should be checked for
level and depth and the seed boots for blockage.
Important
Checking Seed Flow
The following procedure should be implemented
throughout the day typically at each fill of the Air Cart:
•
Raise the seeding tool out of the ground.
•
With the fan running turn the crank on the rear
transmission 4 or 5 turns.
•
Seed and/or fertilizer should appear at each outlet
on the ground.
•
If no seed or fertilizer appears on the ground at any
of the openers check for hose blockage in both the
15/16” (24 mm) diameter secondary and the 2 1/2”
(64 mm) diameter primary hose, as well as in the flat
fan divider.
•
See Trouble Shooting Section for possible causes
of the blockage.
Check Metering Wheel keyways in
the event the primary lines plug.
Keyways may shear if the collector becomes
plugged.
Note : Check Seed Flow as described above, after
running fan for 5 minutes.
Moisture Alert
•
Whenever Air Cart has been standing for an hour
or more during period of high humidity or damp,
rainy days, or after sitting overnight, run fan at
recommended rpm, with machine stationary for 5
minutes.
Air Leaks
It is imperative that no air leaks occur in the Air Cart
tank as even the smallest air leak from the lid will
lead to material bridging in the tank thereby causing
misses in the field.
Check the following areas for air leaks:
- Tank clean-out door
- Metering body assembly seals
- Collector assembly seals
- Tank lid
Tank Low in Product
•
Refill tank before metering wheels are exposed.
•
The metering wheels must be completely covered
to avoid unseeded strips.

Opener Adjustments - Double Shoot Boots
Improperly adjusted or worn seed openers can cause
poor seed/fertilizer separation and plugging which
could result in poor emergence.
It is important that the seed openers be properly

Monitor
Introduction
The monitor utilizes a multiplexed data communication
system to monitor the functions of the Air Cart. In the
multiplexed system, all sensors communicate with the
monitor on the same three wires.
The system can monitor and display status of the
following functions:
• Fan speed
• Ground speed
• Shaft speeds (up to 3)
• Bin levels (up to 3)
• Flow Blockage (up to 192 runs)
An audio alarm will sound upon detection of: low or high
fan speed, low shaft speed, low bin level and failure of
sensors. Also, loss of flow in any runs that are being
monitored with Blockage Modules will generate alarms.
Audio alarms persist until the alarm condition is removed
or until the alarm is acknowledged by the operator by
pressing the appropriate soft key.
MONITOR - N44049
In addition, the monitor can determine and display:
• Field Area
• Total Area
• Application Rate (weight per unit area) (VRT systems
only)
The monitor allows the following settings to be changed:
• High and Low fan speed alarm point
• Low shaft speed alarm point for 3 meter shafts
• Ground speed pulses per 400 ft and pulses per
revolution
• Pulses per revolution of fan and 3 meter shafts
• Low bin alarm for 3 bins
• The number of Blockage Modules that are connected
to the monitor
• The width of the implement
• Imperial or metric units
• English or Russian language
The settings listed above, as well as field and
accumulated areas are stored in nonvolatile memory.
This means that the information is retained even when
power is disconnected.
Two cables exit the rear of the monitor. There is a two
wire power cable that connects to the tractor power
supply. The other is a three wire cable that brings power
and communications to the remote sensors through the
main harness.

Sensor Installation
The installation procedure is required to configure the
monitor to the sensors attached to it.
The operator may have to redo the installation if:
1) An extra tank is added to the Air Cart.
Note: Each monitor is unique to the sensors installed.
If monitor is moved to another Air Cart it has
to be reprogrammed to match the sensors.
2) Replacing or adding sensors.
3) Replacing monitor with a new monitor.
Sensor Installation Order
Installation Precautions
Speed (Ground)
1) During installation the monitor has a predetermined
order in which it wants the sensors attached. The
installer must be sure that the proper sensor is
plugged in the proper sequence.
Fan
Shaft 1
Shaft 2
i.e. If during installation the installer plugs in the
Front Shaft and Ground Speed sensors in the
wrong order, the monitor would not know this.
The monitor would interpret Front Shaft rpm from
the Ground Speed shaft and vice versa.
Shaft 3
Tank 1
Tank 2
2) There may be occasions when the operator will not
have use of all the sensors.
i) During sensor installation when the monitor
prompts for an unused sensor to be plugged in,
the operator can press the SELECT key to skip
over the sensor. The sensor will be assigned
a disabled status. A sensor disabled by this
method can only be enabled by repeating the
installation procedure.
Tank 3
VarCon (Variable Rate)
(Unit calls for installation only if var controller is installed)
Optical Blockage Modules
ii) During operation the operator can disable shaft
sensors by setting the pulses per revolution to
zero. When pulses are set to zero alarms for
that sensor and corresponding Bin Level sensor
are ignored and no monitoring occurs.
3) Blockage modules attached to the harness are
handled differently than the sensors attached to
the harness. See Assembly Section “Blockage
Module”.
Pin Sensors - the blockage module does not have
to be removed from the harness during initial
system installation.
Optical Sensors - the blockage modules have to
be unplugged from the harness before sensor
installation can be performed and are connected
like the other sensors requested by the monitor
during sensor installation.

Alarms
Introduction
All configured sensors and various other operating
conditions are continuously monitored. Alarms fall
into one of the following three categories:
•
Sensor alarms are alarms which are generated
when information returned by a sensor exceeds the
appropriate threshold.
•
Communication alarms occur when a sensor
repeatedly does not respond to attempts at
communication.
•
System alarms are for various other conditions
that are found to be in fault.
When an alarm condition occurs the monitor will beep
repeatedly and an alarm screen will pop up indicating
the fault condition.
Alarm Screen
The audio alarm and alarm screen persist until the
alarm condition is fixed or until it is acknowledged by
the operator. Follow the steps on the screen to fix or
acknowledge the alarm.
After acknowledgement, the “Operating Screen” will
be displayed with any unfixed alarms shown in the
“active alarm window”. If there are more than one
acknowledged alarms, they will cycle on the display.
When the alarm condition is corrected, the alarm
notification is removed and ground speed will again
be displayed in bottom window.
Nuisance Shaft Alarm
Low application rates of Canola may cause the seed
shaft to rotate less than 2 rpm.
Alarm - Operating Screen
The low shaft rpm will cause the monitor to give a shaft
alarm, since the shaft is rotating below the defalt alarm
threshold of 2 rpm.
To avoid this nuisance alarm change the seed shaft low
rpm alarm setting to 0.5 rpm.
Note: Change the setting back to 2 rpm when
returning to higher application rates.
6-20
Note: To “TURN OFF” any shaft not in use set
pulses to 0. This will eliminate any nuisance
alarms caused by an inactive shaft. Also
the corresponding bin should be “Disabled”
to eliminate any nuisance alarms caused by
an empty bin.
December 2008
7000 Air Cart
Monitor
Alarms - Continued
“In Motion” Notification
The “In Motion” condition means that the monitor,
based on ground speed and clutch state, considers
that the system is supposed to be actively seeding.
1
The monitor emits a double beep whenever the “In
Motion” condition becomes true or false. This condition
is defined as speed greater than 2 mph (3.2 Kph) and
drive clutch engaged.
1. If ground speed is less than 2 mph (3.2 Kph) for
more than 30 seconds the monitor will alarm and
display “Should be Seeding”.
2. If ground speed is greater than 2 mph (3.2 Kph) for
more than 30 seconds and clutch is not engaged
the monitor will alarm and display “Clutch Switch
is Off”.
2
Low Fan Alarms
Low fan alarms are handled differently because a
stopped fan can result in damage to the metering
mechanics as unblown material accumulates. Low
fan alarms can not be acknowledged while the
system is “in motion”. Thus, if a low fan alarm
occurs during active seeding, the user will not be able
to silence the alarm with the soft key, but will need to
stop the vehicle or disengage the clutch. When this
happens, the monitor accepts it as an
acknowledgement of the alarm, and an effective
“automatic acknowledge” takes place, resulting in the
beeper being silenced and the resumption of normal
display with “Fan Low RPM” flashing in the alarm
window.

Blockage Sensing
Module Installation
When blockage sensing systems are used, modules
must be installed in the system, runs per module set,
and calibration done while seeding.
Note: When optical modules are added, they must
be learned by the monitor. See the “Sensor
Installation”.
When pin sensors are added, the number
of sensors is set in each module on the
seeding unit and the number of blockage
modules is set in the monitor.
Runs per Module Setup
The number of runs connected per blockage module
must be set in order for the system to operate correctly.
This should only need to be done when the blockage
modules are first installed, and afterwards only if the
number of sensors is changed.
Optical Sensors the number of runs connected is set
in the monitor. Refer to “Monitor Settings”.

Trouble Shooting Guide
Most electronic problems are usually one of the
following:
• Harness connections.
• Damaged harness wires.
• Loose terminal in harness plug.
• Sensor to Actuator clearance.
• Defective sensor.
The monitor will alert the operator of these problems
as a communication error.
Checking Harness
First, check for the obvious things like broken
connections, loose terminals, insulation rubbed off and
so forth.
• Check continuity of wires with ohm meter.
Checking Sensors
The best approach to testing a sensor is to substitute
a suspected sensor with a known good one. If the
problem goes away, the sensor is faulty. If it does not
go away, it is faulty wiring.
Bin Level Sensors ensure there is no foreign material
covering the optical sensor. Remove material with a
cloth as not to damage lens.
Make sure sensor wires are not damaged.
Checking Blockage System
Check modules by performing a blockage module test
on the monitor.
Optical sensors make sure the “optical eyes” are not
coated with material or worn down. Remove material
with a cloth as not to damage lens.
Pin sensors make sure there is no buildup of material
on the pins. Remove material buildup with a knife and
gently scraping away the material buildup.
Make sure sensor wires are not damaged.

Lubrication
Greasing pivot points prevents wear and helps restrict
dirt from entering. However, once dirt does enter a
bearing, it combines with the lubricant and becomes
an abrasive grinding paste, more destructive than grit
alone.
•
Apply new lubricant frequently during operation to
flush out old contaminated lubricant.
•
Use a good grade of lithium based grease.
•
Use a good grade of machine oil.
•
Clean grease fittings and lubricator gun before

Air Delivery System
General
The air delivery system of all Air Carts is extremely
important for the proper metering of product to the openers.
The metering system on all pressurized Air Carts is
sensitive to air leaks. Loss of tank air pressure could
affect feed rates, which could become erratic or even
stop.
•
Caution
Care should be taken when
working near the Air Cart while
the fan is running. Product
blowing out of the system could
cause personal injury.
Regularly check that all hoses are free from kinks or
blockages throughout the day. To check for blockages
raise seeding tool out of the ground and with the fan
running turn crank a couple of turns. Equal amounts of
material should be deposited under each boot if not
check the following for blockage:
1.Seed openers and secondary hoses.
2.Divider heads by removing access doors.
3.Primary hoses and collectors.
4.Metering wheels for damage to key-way and the flutes
of the wheel.
•
Keep fan inlet screen clear and free from debris.
•
Place a plastic bag over the fan when the unit is not in
use. This helps prevent moisture from entering the
system.
•
Check periodically and at the end of each season for
air leaks at hose connections.
•
Check periodically and at the end of each season for
air leaks at the following:
1.Tank Lid Seals.
Note: Extended life can be obtained if the hoses
are rotated 1/4 turn once a year.
2.Metering body shaft seals.
3.Metering body to tank seals.
4.Collector to metering body seals.
5.Fan to plenum.
6.Plenum to collector.
7.Clean-out doors, for leaks and loss of seal memory.
8.Collector door seals.
9.Diverter Valves.
10. Couplers between seeder and cultivator.
11. Access Doors on Divider Heads.
Note: There must not be any air leaks from the tank.
This air leakage causes air turbulence in the
tank which can result in inaccurate metering
rates.
•
Once a year check for wear of primary and secondary
hoses.

Tank Lids
The lid seal is probably the area that sees the most
abuse due to the activity associated with filling the
tanks.
With each fill the lid seals should be inspected for
cuts, abrasions, debris in the seal and ensure the seal
is positioned properly on the steel rim around the tank
opening.
Important
It is imperative that no air leaks occur in the
Air Cart tank as even the smallest air leak
from the lid will lead to material bridging in
the tank thereby causing misses in the field.
Tank Lid Adjustment
Check Tank Lid tension on all tanks at beginning of
each season and periodically during season for air
leaks. The following checks and adjustments must
be made to prevent air leaks from occurring:
• Check for any foreign material embedded into seal.
Clean out foreign material from seal surface.
Note: When Air Cart is not in use, leave lid latches
loose to help maintain resilience of the
seals.
• Check seal for cuts and abrasions. If seal is cut
or severely worn, then replace seal.
• Ensure seal is positioned properly on steel rim
around tank opening.
• Use a 0 - 100 lb. (45 kg) spring scale to check
the tank lid opening force. With the lid closed
place one end of the scale one inch from the
end of the tank lid lever. Pull straight up on the
scale and note the maximum force it takes to
open the lid. The force needed to open the lid
must be greater than 65 lbs (29 kg). Adjust
the lid latch adjusting bolt as necessary. The
lid latch should close with a snap. This will
ensure that the lid is sufficiently tight and
prevent any leaks.
These bolts and lock nuts must be tightened
to maintain a friction fit so the lid latch stays
stationary when in open position.
65 LBS (29 kg)
• Re-check for leaks. If lids still leak turn down bolt
one or two more turns. Re-check for leaks.
Note: This bolt should be loose enough
to allow lid to float in the slot.

Adjust the lid latch adjusting bolt to obtain
a force greater than 65 lbs (29 kg) to open
the lid.

Air Leak Check
It is imperative that no air leaks occur in the Air Cart tank.
Any air leaks could cause loss of tank air pressure affecting
feed rates, which could become erratic or stop.
Important
To prevent this from occurring, it is strongly recommended
that a pressure test be conducted prior to seeding time. This
can be performed very easily and simply by completing the
following steps:
It is imperative that no air leaks occur in the
Air Cart tank, as even the smallest air leak
will lead to material bridging in the tank,
thereby causing misses in the field.
•
Clean fan impeller and adjust tank lids.
•
Disconnect the 2 1/2” (64 mm) diameter primary hoses
from the rear of the cultivator at the primary hose coupler(s)
by loosening the four 3/8” bolts.
•
Install the blank off plate that is supplied with the Air Cart
at each coupler and retighten the 3/8” bolts. If the blank off
plates are not readily at hand a piece of cardboard can be
used in its place.
•
Once the blank off plates have been installed, start the fan
and run at 4,500 rpm.
Note: When Air Cart is not in use leave lid latches
and clean-out doors loose to help maintain
resilience of the seals.
Check the following areas for air leaks:
1. Tank lid seals.
2. Metering body shaft seals.
3. Metering body to tank seals.
4. Collector to metering body seals.
5. Fan to plenum and plenum to collector.
6. Clean-out doors, for leaks and loss of seal memory.
7. Collector door seals.
8. Diverter valves and double shoot mounting plates.
9. Tanks union plate.
10.Tank site glasses.
Air leaks can be detected by spraying a soapy water solution
onto the seal area. If bubbling of soap occurs, the seal has a
leak. Another method is to use your hand to feel for any air
movement around the seal. This method requires a calm day,
as the wind can make it difficult to detect a small leak.
•
If any of the above areas leak, remove the parts and replace
the seal. Ensure upon reassembly that the parts are
tightened sufficiently to prevent air leakage.
•
Remove the blank off plates before using the Air Cart.
Once the pressure test is complete, check the following areas
for air leaks:
11. Couplers between seeder and cultivator.
12. Access doors on divider heads.

Fan
Debris can build up on the fan screen and blades
causing reduced output of the fan. The lack of air
flow even at higher fan speeds will cause material
plugging of the air system.
The build up of material during operation can cause
the following:
1. Fan rpm will increase without increasing oil flow to
orbit motor.
2. Air Cart distribution system plugging from a lack of
air flow (Increasing fan rpm has little or no effect).
Fan Screen
• Ensure fan screen is clear of debris. Check
periodically through the day.
Fan Impeller
The fan blades may become plugged under high
humidity/dusty conditions/high insect counts.
Material on the Fan Blades
Under severe conditions the fan blades should be
inspected daily and cleaned as required.
Under normal conditions the fan should be inspected
and cleaned at least once a season.
• Care should be taken in cleaning all fan blades
thoroughly to restore the fans peak performance.
• Ensure that the balance clips located on the fan
blades are not removed, as this will put the fan out
of balance.
Storage
To prevent water entering the air system, cover the
fan intake with a plastic bag, whenever the seeder is
not in use.
Note: Material build up on the fan blades could
cause the fan to be out of balance. The added
vibration of the out of balance impeller will
reduce the life of the fan components.
Note: Be sure to remove fan cover prior to starting
fan. Serious damage could result to the fan.

Impeller Clearance
The impeller should be centred inside the housing to
avoid contact between the impeller and housing.
The distance "X" between the impeller and housing inlet,
when centred, will be approximately 3/8” (9 mm) to 1/2”
(12 mm).
When assembling fan ensure flange surfaces
of housing are clean.
Apply a 1/4" (6 mm) silicone bead to one
flange surface of housing including outlet
seam.
Mate surfaces and secure in place with 1/4" x 1"
hex bolts (G) and 1/4" serrated lock nuts (H).
Note: Torque 1/4" bolts to 49 in. lb.
Set clearance "X" between the impeller and
housing inlet from 3/8" (9mm) to 1/2” (12 mm).
Hoses
Inspect air delivery hoses for wear and replace as
required. Check areas where hoses maybe exposed
to moving parts such as hitch hinge area. At the Air
Cart hitch area, place a piece of 2 1/2” (64 mm) hose
12” (305 mm) long over top of the two hitch extension
pins to protect air hoses from contacting pins.
Also, inspect hoses for blockage as rodents/birds may
nest in hoses that have not been properly capped
during storage.
To optimize the 7000 Series Air Cart air system on
single shoot units the difference in length between
the longest primary hose and the shortest primary hose
should not exceed six feet.
In conjunction with this, it is important to eliminate
the use of the centre port of the plenum. Check plenum
hose routing, if centre port of the plenum is used
change hose location.

Note: The bearings should never be removed from
the shaft as they are pretensioned to the
shaft with the motor spinning.
SNAP RING
• Replace the O ring.
O-RING
• Both the O ring and shaft seal should be greased
with a “very clean” grease.
• Care must be taken when the front cover is installed
so the shaft seal is not damaged.
• Reinstall the snap ring.
• Fill the motor case with “clean” oil before running.
Note: Any time a motor is replaced the case must
be filled with oil before it is started, if not, a
bearing failure could occur.
Clutch
A torque of 80 ft-lbs (108 N-m) - 100 ft-lbs (135 N-m) is
required to slip the clutch.
To check clutch for slippage check the following:
• Check friction plates for corrosion and buff with a
wire wheel if necessary.
• Check clutch coil resistance. If the meter reads
below 2.40 ohms or above 2.90 ohms, then the
clutch has failed and needs to be replaced.
Note: All values taken at room temperature.
Voltage at 12 VDC. As temperature
increases, resistance increases, and current
decreases.
• Check clutch current draw. If the meter reads below
4 amps, there is a problem in the electrical system
leading to the clutch.
• Check clutch side play. If there is movement on
the shaft between the two clutch halves, adjust
using N31040 shim washers.

Hydraulics
Refer to Section 1 regarding hydraulic safety. In addition:
•
Inspect hydraulic system for leaks, damaged hoses
and loose fittings.
•
Damaged Hoses and hydraulic tubing can only be
repaired by replacement. DO NOT ATTEMPT
REPAIRS WITH TAPE OR CEMENTS. High
pressure will burst such repairs and cause system
failure and possible injury.
•
Leaking cylinders - install a new seal kit.
•
Fittings - use liquid Teflon on all NPT hydraulic joints.
Do not use liquid Teflon or Teflon tape on JIC or
ORB ends.
•
Hydraulic Hose Connections - when connecting the
hoses to the cylinders, tubing, etc. always use one
wrench to keep the hose from twisting and another
wrench to tighten the union. Excessive twisting will
shorten hose life.
•
Keep fittings and couplers clean.
•
Check the Tractor Manual for proper filter replacement
schedule.
Contact your nearest Dealer for genuine repair parts.
Dealers carry ample stocks and are backed by the
manufacturer and regional associations.
Caution
Dirt in the hydraulic system could damage
O-rings, causing leakage, pressure loss and
total system failure.
Refer to the Trouble Shooting Section.
Note: Extreme care must be taken to maintain a
clean hydraulic system. Use only new
hydraulic fluid when filling reservoir.
Warning
HIGH-PRESSURE FLUID HAZARD
To prevent serious injury or death:
7-14
•
Relieve pressure on hydraulic system before servicing
or disconnecting hoses.
•
Wear proper hand and eye protection when searching
for leaks. Use wood or cardboard instead of hands.
•
Keep all components in good repair.

Front Castor Brake Adjustment
The 7240 and 7300 Air Cart Dual Axle Front Castor is
equipped with a brake which prevents the tires from
shimmy under normal operation. It is important the
front castor brake be properly adjusted. If the brake
is not adjusted correctly the tires will shimmy
excessively and may cause the axle assembly to fail.
Adjust the castor brake as follows:
• Check and ensure there is no paint/grease
where the brake pad rides, as the paint/grease
will reduce the effectiveness of the brake.
• Inspect brake pad (N25465) ensuring it is not
damaged or worn, replace if required.
Note: Maximum allowable wear is 1/8” (6 mm).
(New pad is 3/8” (9 mm) thick)
• Check and ensure the hex socket brake pad
mounting screws (N25463) are securely
tightened.
• Check preload on castor fork top pivot bearings
(with brake pad assembled loosely). Tighten as
required using wheel bearing tightening procedure
(springs will compress to a length of
approximately 2 3/8"[60 mm]).
• Adjust the jam nuts until the spring length is 21/8" (54 mm). See Below.
• Increase the spring pressure on the brake to
stop the castor wheels from shimming in the
field or on the road.
Note: Do not overtighten the springs. Excessive
spring pressure will prevent wheels from
castoring.
Note: Tighten jam nuts until the
spring length is 2 1/8" (54 mm)
Important
Dual wheel brake will provide sufficient
pressure to stabilize castor at all travel
speeds up to 18 m.p.h. (28 kph). Avoid
setting more pressure on brake pad than
required to maintain stability. Tow only with
all tanks empty. If a unit must be towed
loaded over a short distance, the transport
speed must be reduced to 10 m.p.h. (16kph)
or slower.

Metering
The metering wheels come in 4 different sizes. Each
wheel matches to a specific distribution head mounted
on the Seeding Tool.
If the metering wheel and distribution head are not
matched correctly, the distribution accuracy will be
adversely affected.
Spacer plates are used to take up the extra space in
each metering cup. These spacer plates vary in size
according to the size of the metering wheel.
Metering Wheel Replacement
• Remove the monitor donut from the Right Hand
Side of the metering body.

Installation Procedure
1. Module should be mounted vertically as shown or
inverted under a Divider Head with ‘Drip Loops’.
2. Module should be mounted on the Seeding Tool
only. (Mounted to Divider Head)
3. The module must be grounded to Seeding Tool
frame. Attach ground wire provided (or 10 GA wire
as req’d) to the back mounting plate of module and
to Seeding Tool frame for a good ground.
Note: A good ground is essential. Remove paint
from any ground contacts.
4. Sensors should be mounted 2 ft away from the
divider head to the top side of the secondary hose.
Sensors should never be mounted on inside curve
of a hose.
Ground Wire
5. The pin sensor wire and the module lead wire should
always have a ‘Drip Loop’ to ensure moisture is
directed away from the module and pin sensors.
6. Splice secondary hose, connecting bubble into
hose with hose clamps.
Note: The sensors should be numbered and
should be placed in an orderly fashion in
the seed tubes, then connected sequentially
to the connector panel (this will make it
easier to identify blocked runs).
7. Secure pin sensor to bubble with a tie strap.
8. Disconnect module from main wiring harness at
Weather Pak connector when unhooking Air Cart
from Seeding Tool.

Wiring Procedure
•
Remove blockage module housing.
•
Feed the cables through the holes in the housing
and then attach the push-on connectors on the
connector panel of the module as illustrated in
figure 3.
•
The cable seal and grommet should then be snugly
pushed against the housing.
•
Set switch S1 SENSOR, located on the front of
the connector panel, to the number of sensors that
are connected to that module.

Wiring Procedure - Continued
• Connect the first module on the system to the Air
Car t wiring har ness using the cable with a
connector on it. White or Red wire is +12VDC,
Green or Brown is Data, and Black is Ground.
See figure 4.
• Connect module 1 to module 2 and module 2 to
module 3 etc. See figure 5.
• Set switch S2 ADDRESS, located on the front of
the connector panel. In a system where there are 3
blockage modules, the addresses must be 1, 2, and
3. The modules should be numbered in such a way
that it is easy for the operator to identify them by
the address displayed on the monitor.
• After all the sensors have been connected and
electrical connections have been made, the covers
should be replaced on the housings.

Installation Procedure
1. Module should be mounted horizontally as shown.
2. Module should be mounted on the Seeding Tool
only.
3. The module must be grounded to Seeding Tool
frame. Attach ground wire provided (or 10 GA wire
as req’d) to the mounting plate of module and to
Seeding Tool frame for a good ground.
Note: A good ground is essential. Remove paint
from any ground contacts.
4. On a straight section of the secondary hose, wrap
rubber tape for a length of 18 inches.
5. Drill a 9/16-inch diameter hole through one side of
secondary hose at mid point of taped section.
6. Ensure hole is clean of debris.
Note: The sensors should be numbered and
should be placed in an orderly fashion in
the seed tubes, then connected sequentially
to the blockage module (this will make it
easier to identify blocked runs).
7. Secure the Optical Sensor and wire lead to hose
with two tie straps.
8. Disconnect Blockage System wire harness from

Fertilizer Banding Kit
Fertilizer Banding Kit
The fertilizer banding kit joins the two transmissions
together, so only the front or rear transmission needs
to be set for different rates.
The product is then metered at a 40:60 split in the
rate. The front tank meters 40% of the desired rate
and the rear tank meters 60% of the desired rate.
Important
Remove the meter drive chain from the
transmission not in use. Severe damage to
drive components will result otherwise.
To determine the rate sprocket and calibration of Air
Cart use the following procedure:
Using Rear Transmission
The amount collected from the rear tank is 60% the
total amount being metered into the air stream.
•
Multiply the desired rate (DR) by 60% to determine
the rate being metered from the rear tank (RR).
DR x .6 = RR
•
Use the rear tank rate (RR) to determine the rate
change sprocket to use. See Rate Charts Section
•
Remove the chain joining the two transmissions
before taking rate calibration samples from rear
tank only. See Rate Calibration Section.
This will prevent material from being deposited into
the front collector body that is not being checked and
avoid a possible plugging of the hoses.
•
The sample taken from the tank should be 60% of
the desired rate as determined above (RR).
Note: Supplied in section “Fertilizer Banding Kit”
(at rear of book) are rate charts which are
based on the 60/40 split for easy rate
sprocket selection.
Rear Transmission
Example:
For a desired rate (DR) of 100 lbs. per acre:
Determine Rear Tank Rate (RR)
DR x .6 = RR
100 lbs/acre x .6 = 60 lbs/acre
100 kg/ha x .6 = 60 kg/ha
Determine sprocket size required to apply 60
lbs/acre from Rate Chart on Air Cart.
Using Front Transmission
The amount collected from the front tank is 40% the
total amount being metered into the air stream.
•
Multiply the desired rate (DR) by 40% to determine
the rate being metered from the front tank (RF).
DR x .4 = RF
•
Use the front tank rate (RF) to determine the rate
change sprocket to use. See Rate Charts Section
•
Remove the chain joining the two transmissions
before taking rate calibration samples from front
tank only. See Rate Calibration Section.
This will prevent material from being deposited into
the rear collector body that is not being checked and
avoid a possible plugging of the hoses.
•
Front Transmission
Example:
For a desired rate (DR) of 100 lbs. per acre:
Determine Front Tank Rate (RF)
DR x .4 = RF
100 lbs/acre x .4 = 40 lbs/acre
100 kg/ha x .4 = 40 kg/ha
Determine sprocket size required to apply 40
lbs/acre from Rate Chart on Air Cart.
The sample taken from the tank should be 40% of
the desired rate as determined above (RF).
