Description of Machine
The Duncan EcoSeeder is a Tee-boot drill which can be
operated as a trailing or a 3 point linkage machine.
The seed box is mounted on a robust frame
accommodating large diameter tyres for the arable
situation. The depth of the ground engaging conponents
on the 3 point linkage machine is controlled by adjusting
turnbuckles fitted to each wheel leg. For the trailing
machine, the depth is controlled by using the hydraulic
rams and depth control collars on each ram. The quality
European type peg roller seeder system handles all
seeds from turnip and rape through to peas and maize.
The seeders are driven from one of the groundwheels
via a jockey wheel system and variable speed gearbox.
For transport the drive is easily disconnected by raising
the drill to its transport height.
Working Principle
The gearbox, pegged seed rollers and seeder flaps are
set to give the desired seed rate. The coil tine and Tboot, create the seed bed. Seed flows down the flexible
tubes between seeder and tee-boot units, and drops into
the prepared seed bed.

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.
Adequate protection, such as a face mask, should be worn if
operating this machine in dry and dusty conditions.
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 40km/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.
8
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. respirator.
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.
Do not operate this equipment when severe weather
conditions appear imminent.

SAFETY - General (Continued)
Practise Safe Maintenance
Keep the machine in safe working condition. Routine maintenance
and regular servicing will help reduce risks and prolong the life of the
machine.
General Maintenance
Accidents occur most frequently during servicing and repair. The
following general rules must be followed when maintaining or working
with machinery:
• All operating and maintenance manuals must be
read before and referred to while using or servicing any
piece ofequipment.
• Turn off all machinery power sources and isolate the
machine before making adjustments, doing lubrication,
repairs or any other maintenance on the machine.
• Ensure that the machine hydraulics are disconnected from
the power source.
• Wear gloves when handling components with cutting
edges, such as any ground cutting components.
• Beware of hazards created by springs under tension
or compression when dismantling or maintaining the
machine.
• It is recommended that you clean the machine with a water
blaster or similar apparatus before commencing
maintenance.
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.
10
SAFETY - Machine Specific
This section of the manual gives specific guidelines for
the safe operation of the EcoSeeder.
These guidelines were current at the time of publication, but
may be superseded by later circumstances. They do not
necessarily cover every possible hazard and must be read in
conjunction with the SAFETY - General section (Page 6-10).
Hazard Points on the EcoSeeder
The lists below are not all-inclusive and serve only to highlight
the more obvious areas of risk.
The decals attached to the machine are a general reminder
that there are hazardous areas on the machine, rather than
specifically highlighting all possible hazards.
For decal locations on machine, refer Page 13.

Hazard Points on the EcoSeeder
(Continued)
Pedestal Chain Guards
To prevent hands, etc. getting caught in drive chains, guards
are provided to cover sprockets, chain and chain tensioners
mounted about the drive pedestal (RHS). These guards must
be fitted while using the machine.
Warning: Access to pinch points is still possible from
underneath the guard.
For guard locations on machine, refer Page 13.
Calibrating
Be particularly careful when calibrating the seeding rate. At
this time, the calibration trays have been removed and are no
longer covering the rotating seeder units. See Pinch Points/
Moving Parts (Page 11) for hazardous areas.
Transport
The two wheels located at the sides of the machine are for the
purpose of controlling sowing depth. These are also used to
support the machine weight during transport (while linked to
the tractor).
Important - Refer to safety cautions in the Transport section,
page 8 of the manual. Ensure that all linkage pins and security
clips are fitted correctly.

Transport
1
Raise the drill into the transport position and hold at the full
extent of the rams for a few seconds to allow cylinders to
equalise.
2
Important - To avoid machine damage due to drill
lowering during transport, always close the hydraulic
valve at the quick release coupling. Move the handle to a
position at 900 to the hydraulic line
3
Maximum towing speed 40 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.
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 stoney and uneven ground conditions a lower speed is more appropriate
3
Check that the drill is level during calibration and while seeding.
4
Check tyre pressure before seeding. Refer page 5.
5
Double check seed rates before seeding.
6
Raise the drill out of the ground when making any turns.
7
Raise the drill out of the ground before backing up.
8
Stretched sagging hoses disrupt seed flow. Slight tension may be restored by carefully shortening
the affected hose; remove from the tube at ground level and cut accordingly.
Care must be taken not to shorten too much as the tension will pull the hose from the ground tube
or damage the plastic metering funnel.
9
After prolonged storage, check to see that all drive mechanisms and hydraulic equipment are functioning
correctly. Check that the seed/fertilizer tubes are not perished or blocked.
Sowing Speed
Typical travel speeds when sowing range from 6-12 km/hr in good conditions. In stoney 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 & axles.
c Fasteners & structural components.
3 More extreme conditions will result in greater vibration
and uneven seed flow at low seeding rates.
Sowing Depth Control
The sowing depth is dependent on:
1 The wheel height in relation to the chassis
2 Tyre pressure
3 Ground condition i.e. hard or soft
1
Stop collars (1) are fitted to both ram shafts. Ensure that
both rams have the same size collars fitted as these
control the sowing depth.
Pt. No. 67392
Issue 0813
15
Level Drill
Use the drawbar turnbuckle to tilt the drill so it is sitting
level. An adjustment may be required after a short period
of use because the paint wears off the discs and the discs
sharpen which in turn improves the penetration abilities.
Ensure that the front and rear rows are at an even depth.
Transport Position
When in the transport position the hydraulic cylinders are
fully extended.
Coulter Penetration Depth
To create the ideal seed bed the disc opener coulter
should cut approximately 20mm below the inverted
tee point. In hard and dry conditions this may not be
achievable, and better machine/sowing performance may
be achieved without using the disc openers. An indication
of this will be the machine bouncing which will result in
uneven sowing depth.
Coulters will give better penetration ability as they sharpen
with use.

Basic Calibration Procedure
Gearbox Setting Lever
1
To set the seed rate at the gearbox, slacken the tri knob (1) by
turning counter-clockwise and push from below into the position
indicated in the Sowing Chart. Retighten the star knob firmly.
When one box is being calibrated, set the other one to zero to
prevent loss of product.
Note that the front most lever (yellow letters on black
background) controls the rear box.
Important
The settings shown in the Sowing Charts (kg/ha) can only
serve as reference values. Deviations may occur caused by
differences in the size, shape, density of the seed/fertilizer and
by the dressing agent. Therefore prior to any sowing, always
carry out calibration trials to accurately determine the
actual seed rate.
Dual Box unit shown
Using the stepless variable speed gearbox, the speed of the

higher the figure indicated on the scale by the setting lever the
greater the seed rate.

1
1
Remove the calibration tray from the storage brackets
on the seedbox. Place the calibration tray (1) on the
support members below the seeders .
2
Position all the clear plastic seed diverters (2) to redirect
the seed into the calibration tray.
3
Make sure all the shutters are open and set to the
position indicated in the seed charts for the particular
seed (Page 17).
4
Agitator Shaft - Check the Seed Chart “Hints” whether
to connect or disconnect the shaft during seeding by
removing the M10 bolt (3).
5
For the test, half fill the box with seed. If this is not
possible make sure the seed is evenly distributed within
the box.
6
For setting method refer to Basic Calibration Procedures
(Page 18).
3
Note For seeds which are not covered in the Sowing Chart
(Page 17), use the figures for a seed of comparable size
and shape.
4
7
Place the crank handle (4) over the hexagonal drive
dog on the gearbox input shaft and turn anti-clockwise
until the seed flows consistently from the seeders. To
ensure complete filling of the seed unit continue turning
the crank until an even flow of seed is coming out of the
seeder units, then empty back into the seedbox. The drill
is now ready for calibration.
8
Turn the crank handle anti-clockwise the required
number of revolutions as detailed on the following page.
Note The Calibration is usually done for 1/40th hectare.
For very small seed rates or when using inaccurate
scales (i.e. unable to measure to the nearest gram) the
calculation based on 1/10th hectare should be used.
Scales must be accurate to 2 grams as any error will
be multiplied by either 10 or 40 giving inaccurate
calibration results.

Weigh the seed collected during the test in kilograms.
Caution: Scales must be accurate to 2 grams, as any error will be multiplied
by either 10 or 40, giving inaccurate calibration results.
10 Calculate the seed rate by multiplying the kgs previously collected x 40 (1/40th
ha method) or x 10 (1/10th ha method) depending on the requirement. If the
resultant calculation does not produce the desired seed rate use the enclosed
seed rate calculator disc to determine the correct gearbox setting.
Refer Use of Seed Rate Calculator Page 21.
Suggestion: To be on the safe side and until confidence has been gained
with the method of calibration it is advisable to conduct a second test at the
newly determined gearbox setting.
11 Where a coated seed is used it is advisable to check the calibration after
1 hectare as dressings can tend to create a coating on the seed metering
wheels thus changing the the flowing properties of the seed which in turn
alters the seed rate.
For 1/40 Hectare (250m2) Calibration
Seed Rate = Actual Seed Collected (kg) x 40
For 1/10 Hectare (1000m2) Calibration
Seed Rate = Actual Seed Collected (kg) x 10
20
Basic Calibration Procedure (Continued)
Use of Seed Rate Calculator
Determining the gear box scale setting using the calculator.
Usually the first calibration test yields a different seed rate. However with the value determined
from the first test it is possible to determine the correct gearbox setting with the aid of the
enclosed disc calculator. The disc calculator consists of 3 scales. An outer white scale (1) for
all seed rates above 30 kg/ha and an inner scale (2) for all seed rates below 30 kg/ha. On the
middle coloured scale (3) are all the gearbox setting numbers to a maximum value of 100.
Setting Example (Desired Seed Rate 125kg/ha)
1
2
3
4
From the calibration procedure at a gearbox lever setting of “70”, a seed rate of 175 kg/ha
is obtained.
Turn the inner disc until the measured seed rate of 175kg/ha (A) is in line with the related
actual gearbox setting of “70”(B).
Read off from the disc rule the necessary gearbox setting for the required seed rate of
125kg/ha (C). In this example the correct setting is “50” (D).
To be on the safe side the new gearbox setting can be checked by another calibration test.
Pt. No. 67392
Issue 0813
21
Basic Calibration Procedure (Continued)
Calibration Deviations
Deviations Between the Calibration Test and the Actual Seed Rate
The most frequent cause for changes between the calibration test and the seed rate lies in the
flowing properties of seed during sowing. These changes in properties generally result from
reactions of the dressing agents to temperature, humidity or abrasion. These changes will
become even more obvious when the bottom flaps are incorrectly set. If the setting of these
flaps leaves too large a gap an uncontrollable additional flow of seed can occur during seeding;
especially when assisted by the drill bouncing, a condition not simulated while conducting the
calibration tests. For this reason the basic setting of the bottom flaps should be checked at
regular intervals.
Residues from the seed dressing on the bottom flaps and metering wheels can also influence
the flowing properties of the seed and thus the seed rate. In such cases a balance will occur
only after a period of time and it is recommended to repeat the calibration test to confirm the
seed rate after 2-3 seedbox fillings, nominally when the seed box is half empty. Only then will a
balance occur and the seed rate will stabilise.
Wheel Slip Deviations
It is always possible with rubber tyred drills in extreme ground conditions to get wheel slip. Not
normally a problem with cleated type tyres in good condition, but more so in the arable situation
with the less agressive tread patterns. The result: large differences between the calibration test
and the actual sowing rate, obviously less seed deposited than required. The number of crank
turns indicated on page 20 is correct in most circumstances other than those mentioned above.
To check number of crank turns for calibration
Should you require to check this in a practical way proceed as follows:
For an area of 250m2 (1/40 Hectare), the travel distance for your machine is shown below. Place
the crank handle over the hexagonal drive dog on the gearbox. Move the machine forward over
the measured distance, counting the number of turns of the crank handle as you go. Using this
number of crank turns repeat the calibration.

Basic Calibration Procedure
(continued)
Sowing of Fine Seeds
1
For sowing small seeds the EcoSeeder Drill is equipped
as standard with a combined normal and small seed
metering wheel (1). During grain sowing and other larger
varieties of seed both the large and small seed metering
wheels are coupled and both rotate. In order to convert the
seed drill to sow fine seed insert the crank handle and rotate
clockwise until the holes (2) of the small seed wheel are
visible.
Using the tool supplied (3) disengage the the pin inside
the hole so that the large metering wheel rotates freely
on the metering shaft.
When seed is to be sown again using the normal metering
wheel press the pin, using the tool, from the large metering
wheel side (opposite direction to before), back into the
hole of the small seed wheel thus reconnecting the drive
between the two.
This must be done for the whole bank of wheels.
2
3
Caution - When resetting the metering
wheels on the seeder shaft
Care should be taken when tightening the grub screws
on the small seed wheel. Adjust the grubscrew until the
movement of the metering wheel just stops, then tighten
no more than 1/8 of a turn.
Do not overtighten as this can result in breakages while
operating and may void the warranty on these units.
Pt. No. 67392

Small Seeds
Calibration with Disconnected Agitator Shaft
The small seed metering wheel used in Duncan Drills is
especially well suited for sowing small seeds such as rape,
turnips and clover.
Due to the intensive action caused by the agitator the seeds
can adhere to each other, or be damaged, causing irregular
sowing/germination. Therefore it is recommended that
when sowing small seeds, especially oil seeds and thin
shelled seeds, the drive to the agitator is disconnected.
To do this remove the linch pin or bolt. (1).
1
Deviations between the calibrated and actual seed rate can
occur when residual dressing agent sticks to the bottom
flaps and thus slows the flow of seed. Before beginning the
actual calibration test fill the calibration trays by turning the
crank handle at a high speed around the 90 setting on the
gearbox scale. This will cause an immediate buildup of the
dresssing agent on the flaps. Return the contents of the
calibration trays to the seed box and proceed with the actual
calibration. Due to the residue buildup on the flaps your
calibration will now reflect accurately the required seed rate.
Note - Remember to reconnect the agitator shaft as required
for other seeds otherwise the consistency of seed rate will be
affected.
Agitator shaft disconnected

Sowing Peas
Peas having the size and shape as illustrated in A (e.g.
White Field Peas), can be sown in all Duncan Drills with this
type of metering wheel.
The flap should be set to a gap of at least “3” on the flap
setting lever (Page 18).
With these peas it should not be necessary to run the
agitator shaft.
Peas having the size and shape as illustrated in B (e.g.
Green or Garden Peas), tend to bridge inside the seedbox
and do not flow freely.
This multi-faceted pea requires agitation for sowing.

Maintenance & Care
General Safety and Accident Prevention Advice
1
Make sure that if the tractor remains attached to the drill
that the ignition key is removed.
2
During maintenance the drill should be supported in such
a manner that if hydraulic failure was to occur the machine
would still be adequately supported.
3
Wear gloves when handling components with cutting
edges such as worn discs etc...
4
Disconnect the electrical supply from the tractor before
doing any electrical maintenance.
5
Refer to safety sections for more safety information.
General Cautionary Maintenance Advice
1
Electric Welding - With the electronic equipment in
modern tractors it is advisable to completely disconnect the
implement from the tractor, or at the very least disconnect
the alternator before attempting any welding.
2
Hydraulics - Ensure hydraulic couplings (male & female)
are clean before connecting. Dirty couplings will result
in hydraulic oil contamination and hydraulic cylinder seal
damage and bore scores. This in turn will result in oil
leakage past the piston seals.
No filter is fitted to the hydraulic system. If hydraulic
fittings and oil supply are not going to be kept clean it is
recommended that a filter be fitted to prevent hydraulic
cylinder damage.
3
Water Blasting - Water blasting, steam cleaning or other
pressurised cleaning processes can force dirt etc. into
undesirable places that may cause damage or rapid part
wear to items such as bearings, seals, chains, bushes etc.
Caution must be exercised.
28
Maintenance & Care - Lubrication Instructions
Precautions with Grease
Greases should not be mixed as the structure may be weakened by the
mixes of different types of thickener, which may cause softening and loss of
grease from the bearings by running out.
Your new Duncan EcoSeeder will give
long and efficient service if given normal
care and maintained properly.

(Refer also to Summary Chart, above)
1. Bolted Connections
All bolted connections of the machine should be checked after the first 3 to 5 hours of operation and
retightened if necessary and thereafter at regular intervals. It is suggested that this is done every 500
hectares or annually, whichever occurs first.
2. Gearbox
The oil level in the gearbox can be seen in the oil gauge window. Changing the gearbox oil is
recommended once a year or sooner if the oil is discoloured. For draining, remove the drain plug at
the bottom of the gearbox and the fill plug at the top. Replace drain plug before refilling
Castrol Oil Agri Trans Plus or equivalent* should be used.
The total filling capacity is 1.25 litres.
DO NOT OVERFILL.
*Oil Specification to meet the requirements of : SAE 10W-30, API GL-4, Massey Ferguson M1143,
John Deere J20C, J20D, Case MS 1207, Ford/New Holland M2C-134D, M2C-86 A/B/C
3. Hydraulics
Ensure hydraulic couplings (male & female) are clean before connecting. Dirty couplings will result in
hydraulic oil contamination and hydraulic seal and bore damage which will cause oil leakage past the
seals.
No filter is fitted to the hydraulic system. If the hydraulic fittings and the oil supply are not going to
be kept clean then it is recommended that a filter be fitted to prevent hydraulic cylinder damage.
30
4. Drive Chains
All drive chains (1) should be checked after every 20
hours of operation and weekly thereafter or after 75Ha
of operation.
The metering wheels of the seed drill are driven via
roller chains from the drive wheel.
Cleaning of the roller chains is recommended annually
or pre-season and after long periods of operation.
Remove the chain, wash in kerosene and then
dip in heated grease or oil or spray with a suitable
commercial roller chain lubricant.
1
1
1
5. Wheel Arm Pivots
Wheel arm pivots must be greased regularly (weekly
or after every 75Ha) to provide lubrication and flush
out any dirt.
6. Tyre Pressure
The recommended tyre pressures may be found on
page 5. Check the tyre pressure regularly to ensure
correct pressure is maintained. Weekly checks are
recommended.
7. Disc Openers
Front coulter bearings are sealed and do not require
lubrication. Check discs for any lateral movement
(wobble) on a regular basis. Replace bearings if there
is any noticeable wobble.
There is one grease nipple on each disc opener frame
pivot and disc assembly casting. Frame pivots should
be greased monthly while disc castings should be
greased daily to provide lubrication and to flush out
any dirt.
8. Length of Seed/Fertiliser Tubes
These tubes can stretch over a period of time and
require checking at approximately six monthly
intervals. Shorten if necessary to avoid bends which
will restrict the flow of seed/fertiliser.
9. Framework
The framework structure should be inspected annually
for defects, i.e., cracks in members or welded
connections. The framework should be cleaned prior
to the inspection.

The required seed rate is controlled by both the metering
wheels and the bottom flaps. The seed flows from the seed
box into the metering wheel housings. Inside the metering
wheel housing (1) the seed is caught between the metering
wheel (2) and the bottom flap (3). The metered amount
of seed is transported by the metering wheel to the edge
of the bottom flap where it drops off into the seed guide
tube which leads to the coulter. Varying grain sizes require
the matching of the flap clearance to the different grain
sizes. This matching is done by raising or lowering the
bottom flaps by using the flap adjusting lever on the LH
end of the seed box. If larger foreign particles, e.g. stones
get between the metering wheel and the bottom flap, the
bottom flap can give way downwards. A strong return
spring (4) brings the bottom flap immediately back into the
working position.
The metering system should be checked every 1/2 year
or before any sowing period with an empty seed box
and empty metering housings.
1

10
Use the following procedure:
Put the bottom flap setting levers (6) (located on the LH
end of the seed boxes) in position “1” for the front box and
position “1” for the rear box.
By turning the metering wheel shaft by hand check the
flaps are all set to a gap of 0.1 to 0.5mm.
To adjust individual flaps use the spring tensioning screw
(5) .
Note: Maintenance Schedule (page 30)
Where the frequency is given in terms of use (eg. weekly)
or area covered (eg. 75 Ha) perform the maintenance task
based on whichever occurs first.
Preparing the Machine for Storage.
Locate on a dry level surface. The machine should be
stored wherever possible so the rams are not supporting
any weight. The drive chains should be lubricated with
suitable roller chain lubricant before prolonged periods of
storage.
For longer term storage remove seed/fertiliser tubes
from the boot assembly and allow to hang without
deformation. Check tube lengths when replacing.
It is recommended that maintenance be carried out
at the end of the season, giving sufficient time to
obtain spare parts and/or carry out repairs if required.
