Description of Machine
The Duncan Enviro 3000e is a triple disc direct drill. It has as
standard two boxes for either seed combinations or traditional
seed fertiliser mixes, with the option of one or two extra
small seed boxes. The boxes are mounted on a heavy duty
frame accommodating large rear mounted wheels which are
hydraulically operated, allowing adjustable sowing pressure
and good transport clearance. Both opening discs and double
discs are independently sprung, giving good contour following
ability. Sowing depth is controlled by adjustable rubber tyred
depth wheels. The quality European type peg roller seeder
system handles all seeds from turnip and rape through to peas
and maize. The seeder drive is electric via a reduction gearbox
to the seeder shaft. Ground speed is sensed via ground radar
with seed rates controlled proportionally to ground speed.
Seeding ceases automatically when the machine is raised into
the transport position.
Working Principle
The seed box slides, seeder flaps and seeding rate are set
to give the required seed delivery. The front disc precuts the
ground surface, followed by the double disc which creates
the seed bed. Seed/fertiliser is metered down the flexible
convolute tubes from the boxes to the double disc unit and fed
into the prepared seed bed. A suitably profiled depth wheel
maintains the double discs at a predetermined depth, closing
and compacting the soil over the deposited seed.

SAFETY - General (Continued)
Appropriate Dress
Wear close fitting clothing and avoid rings or other forms of
jewellery which could become caught in the machinery.
People with long hair must have it securely fixed and confined
close to the head.
Refer to local safety standards for protective clothing and
recommended safety equipment.
Transport This Machine Safely
Ensure that all linkage pins and security clips are fitted correctly.
With trailing machines tow with the drawbar only, as this is the
only safe towing point on the machine.
Always check that bystanders (especially children) are well clear
(front and rear) before starting and moving the tractor and the
machine.
Plan safe routes of travel, and be aware of power lines and
other roadside hazards. Take particular care when towing
implements on hillsides.
Do not ride or allow passengers on the machine.
This machine is not designed to carry passengers, and no riders
are permitted.
Road transport
On public roads,
• A speed of 30km/h must not be exceeded.
• Do not operate during the hours of darkness unless standard
lights are fitted and clearly visible. (This also applies when
visibility is limited, e.g., in foggy conditions.)
See the guidelines in the Vehicle Dimensions and Mass Rule,
issued by the Land & Transport Safety Authority.
Avoid tip-overs
Avoid holes, ditches and obstructions which may cause the
machine to tip over, especially on hillsides. Never drive near the
edge of a gully or steep embankment - it might cave in. Slow
down for hillsides, rough ground and sharp turns.

SAFETY - General (Continued)
Handle Agricultural Chemicals Safely
All farm chemicals should be stored, used, handled and
disposed of safely and in accordance with the supplier’s/
manufacturer’s recommendations.
Read the product label before using, noting any warnings
or special cautions, including any protective clothing or
equipment that may be required, ie. respirtor.
Do not eat or smoke while handling sprays, fertilisers, coated
seeds, etc. Afterwards, always wash your hands and face
before you eat, drink, smoke, or use the toilet.
Store sprays, fertilisers, coated seeds, etc. out of reach of
children and pets, and away from food and animal feeds.
Any symptoms of illness during or after using chemicals
should be treated according to the supplier’s/manufacturer’s
recommendations. If severe, call a physician or get the
patient to hospital immediately. Keep the container and/or
label for reference.
Avoid High Pressure Fluids
Avoid any contact with fluids leaking under pressure, because
the fluids can penetrate the skin surface.
Any fluid which penetrates the skin, will need to be removed
immediately by a medical expert. Seek specialist advice on
this type of injury.
Relieve the pressure before disconnecting any hydraulic or
other lines. Make all repairs and tighten all fittings before
re-connection to pressurised fluid.
Keep your hands and body away from any pinholes or high
pressure jets. Search for leaks with a piece of cardboard
instead of using your hand directly.
Safe Work Practices
All farm machinery is potentially dangerous and should be
treated with caution and respect.
Before starting the machine, ensure that all controls are placed
in neutral and that bystanders are well clear. Check that the
guards have been securely fitted and that any adjustments
have been made correctly.
Where possible, disconnect or isolate the drive mechanism to
the implement. Lower the machine onto the ground when not
in use.

Make Sure the Machine is Well Supported
When machinery is fitted with hydraulics, do not rely on the
hydraulics to support the machine. During maintenance or while
making adjustments under the machine, always lock the hydraulics
and support the machine securely. Place blocks or other stable
supports under elevated parts before working on these.
Electrical Maintenance
Disconnect the electrical supply from the tractor before doing any
electrical maintenance.
Welding
With electronic equipment in modern tractors it is advisable to
disconnect the machine from the tractor, or at least disconnect the
alternator and battery before attempting any welding.
Use Only Genuine Spare Parts
Unauthorised modifications or non-genuine spare parts may be
hazardous and impair the safe operation and working life of the
machine.
Excess lubricants must be disposed of safely so as not to become
a hazard.

Transport
1
Raise the drill into the transport position and hold at the
full extent of the rams for 30 seconds to allow cylinders to
rephase/equalise.
2
Important - To avoid machine damage due to drill
lowering during transport, always close the hydraulic
valves for the wheels and drawbar. Move the handles to a
position at 900 to the hydraulic line as shown.
3
Locate jack stand in transport position.
4
Ensure lighting and oversize warning requirements meet
recommendations published by the local Land Transport
Authority or equivalent.
5
Maximum towing speed for the drill is
30 km/hr.
For countries other than New Zealand, greater speed
restrictions may apply. Please refer to your local
transport authority.
Ensure towing vehicle requirements are adequate
for the towed vehicle e.g. mass, brakes. Refer to
recommendations published by the local Land Transport
Authority or equivalent.
Braking when towing can cause the load to jackknife. Use
extra care when towing in adverse conditions such as
mud, inclines and sharp bends.
Lower towing speeds are recommmended on farm roads/
tracks and where one wheel is on or over a road verge.
6
Attach safety chains to tractor.
Safety chains must be crossed over underneath the
coupling and attached to the towing vehicle. The
attachment points must be as close as practical to the
towing coupling and one each side.The towbar on the
towing vehicle must be rated for the towed mass. Do not
remove or replace the safety chains provided with
any other than those specified in the parts manual.
Note: The safety chains are provided with sufficient
length to cater for all towing vehicles. Safety chains must
be shortened by cutting off excess length so that if the
coupling fails the drawbar will not hit the ground.
7
If the machine is fitted with row markers or other vertical
extensions check clearance under power lines en route.
14
Operation
General Operation Guidelines
1
Use a sufficiently powerful tractor which is heavy enough to tow
the drill safely.
2
Operate the drill at a speed of 6-12 km/hr (4-8 mph).
In stony and uneven ground conditions a lower speed is more
appropriate.
3
Check that the drill is level during calibration and while seeding.
4
Adjust the individual depth wheels to the required sowing depth.
5
Check tyre pressure before seeding.
6
Double check seed rates before seeding.
7
Do not turn with discs in the ground. When making any turns,
make sure the drill is fully raised out of the ground.
8
Raise the drill out of the ground before backing up.
9
After prolonged storage, check to see that all drive mechanisms and
hydraulic equipment are functioning correctly. Check that the seed
tubes are not perished or blocked.
Sowing Speed
Typical travel speeds when sowing range from 6-12 km/hr in
good conditions. In stony and uneven ground conditions a lower
speed is recommended to minimise rapid part deterioration.
Sowing too fast can result in:
1 Poor contour following and uneven sowing depth.
2 Impact damage to:
a Ground engaging components.
b Bearings, housings and axles.
c Fasteners & structural components.
3 More extreme conditions will result in greater vibration and
uneven seed flow at low seeding rates.
Front Coulter & Dragbar Loading
The height of the drill when in the drilling position is determined
by the laden weight and the number and size of the depth collars
on the master cylinder shaft. This in turn determines the pressure
on the discs.
In very soft conditions where downward pressure may alter seed
depth, there may be a compromise between downward pressure
and total contour following abilities.
Magnetic Cut-out Sensor
To enable seeding to start and stop when coulters are lowered
into and lifted out of the ground, a magnetic cut-out sensor is
mounted on the RH wheel arm hydraulic ram. To minimise seed
wastage during raising and lowering the coulters, the sensor
should be adjusted up or down on the ram to suit the sowing
depth and ground conditions. Moving the sensor down the ram
stops the seeding later and starts the seeding earlier, and vice
versa. The sensor can be moved by slackening the metal hose
clip. It is better to experiment with the sensor position for various
depth settings to get the response required.
Pt. No. 67305
Issue 0913
15
Transport Position
When in the transport position the hydraulic cylinders are
fully extended. In this position the cylinders fully equalise by
allowing oil to bypass the master cylinder piston. To ensure
the cylinder rods are equally extended and to minimise
variations in sowing depth, raise the drill into the transport
position regularly to counteract the effects of oil leakage
past the piston. It is recommended to raise the drill into the
transport position when turning at headlands.
Coulter Penetration Depth
To create the ideal seed bed the front coulter disc should
cut approximately 20mm below the double discs. If more
undercut is required or the ground is particularly hard or
the discs have become worn, the front coulter beam can be
lowered. This is done by undoing the four bolts at each end
of the beam on the outside of the sideplates, connecting the
hydraulic hoses for the rams to the supply and operating
them until the beam is level and the discs are at the required
height. Retighten the bolts and disconnect the hydraulic
hoses.
The system is factory set at the highest level. When the
beam is moved down, there are three holes 20mm apart for
intermediate settings, in which an M20 bolt can be fixed as a
stop. Choose the hole to give the best position. An M20 bolt
for this purpose is stored at the top front of each of the side
plates.
Note: The front coulter blades will sharpen with initial use
and therefore penetration ability will improve.
Double Disc Sowing Depth
The penetration depth of the double discs is dependent on
two aspects.
1 The weight applied from the machine’s mass.
2 The press wheel adjustment.
If the ground is hard and the double discs are not
penetrating to the desired depth the press wheels will not be
in contact with the ground. To increase the weight applied,
refer to “Front Coulter & Dragbar Loading”
Where the loading applied to the double discs exceeds
the ground resistance the remaining load is transferred to
the press wheels. The running height of the press wheel in
relation to the double discs controls the sowing depth. See
“Press Wheel Adjustment” (below).
Note: Ground penetration ability will increase as the double
discs sharpen and the paint wears off.
Press Wheel Adjustment
Press wheels are used to control the seeding depth and
compact the soil after sowing to give good seed/soil contact.
To adjust the press wheel setting, reposition the jaw lock pin
in the desired notch.
16
Double Disc Scrapers
Scrapers are fitted to the rear of the double discs and
prevent soil buildup on the inside face of the disc. The
scrapers will need to be adjusted as the discs wear
(reduce in diameter). If not adjusted the scrapers will
overhang the disc edge and wear unevenly. Scrapers are
factory set in the correct initial operating position and don’t
require adjustment before drill use.
Press Wheel Scrapers
A minimum clearance of 2mm is recommended between
the scraper and the press wheel. Check the scraper
clearance on full circumference regularly as press wheels
can be eccentric. Best scraper performance may be
dependent on the ground conditions.
Level Drill
Use the drawbar ram to tilt the drill so it is sitting level. An
adjustment may be required after a short period of use
because of oil leakage.
Electric Drive
Refer to the separate Electric Drive Operating Manual.

NOTES
1. SHUTTER SLIDE
For grain, opening the shutter slide to Full gives 10-15% more flow.
2. BOTTOM FLAP
The values shown were the optimum test settings.
Decreasing the gap may cause seed damage.
Too large a gap will give intermittent flow rates.
Flaps are spring loaded to cope with small variations in seed/granule size.
3. METERING WHEEL
N = Normal metering wheel
F = Fine metering wheel only
4. AGITATOR
E = Engaged
D = Disengaged
*SOWING RATES These are based on the maximum and minimum electric motor speeds, which are independent of ground speed

Basic Calibration Procedure
Setting Seeder Shutter Slides
The varying flow properties of seeds require different shutter
slide positions which may be found in the Sowing Chart for the
individual type of seed. This corresponds to one of the three
settings as shown.

Bottom Flap Settings
The various seed sizes require matching bottom flap clearances
below the metering wheel. The adjusting plate allows for 10
different settings. The required position for the seed type may
be found in the Sowing Chart. The control levers are located on
the LH end of the seedbox, (opposite end to the gearbox).
Number “1” corresponds to the minimum (closed) position and
“10” the maximum gap.

Seed Calibration
The calibration test should be done to confirm the required
seed rate to be sown and is done with the drill stationary and
level.
Seed Calibration Procedures
1
Remove the calibration trays from the brackets on the
seedbox. Place the trays on the calibration tray brackets
below the seeders.
2
Push down all the clear plastic seed directers to redirect
the seed into the calibration trays, 1.
3
Make sure all the shutters are open and set to the
position indicated in the seed chart for the seed being
sown.
4
Agitator Shaft - Check the Seed Chart “Hints” whether to
connect or disconnect the shaft by removing the M6 bolt
(3) during seeding.
5
For the test, half fill the box with seed. If this is not
possible make sure the seed is evenly distributed over all
seeders in the box.
6
Now refer to the calibration procedures in the Electric Drive
Operating Manual.

3
Note The amount of product to be dispensed during
calibration is entered when initiating the calibration
procedure (refer Electric Drive Operating Manual).
Suggested amounts are specified on the Seeding Chart.
The greater the amount of product dispensed, the more
accurate the process.
7
To check weigh the seed, scales must be setting level
and out of any wind. Scale accuracy must be to at least
two grams.

Calibration Deviations
Deviations Between the Calibration Test
and the Actual Seed Rate
Changes in the flowing properties of seed during sowing often cause
changes in the relationship between the calibration test and the seed rate.
These changes in flowing properties generally
