SEED PARTNER SET UP & OPERATION
The Seed Partner consists of a Seed Cart and Seed Jet II. Your Seed Partner is shipped as an assembled unit with one pallet box. Please check that the following items are received in the container:
NOTE: Gasoline, oil and a 12-Volt battery (Group 58 or 26-70) will be required before the
unit can be operated.
1. The wheels and tires must be moved from the shipping position to the field position. Remove the two rear wheel, hub and tire assemblies from inside the frame install them in the same spindle tubes outside of the frame as shown in the illustration.
WARNING: Do not pull your Seed Partner in the field or on the road with the tires in the shipping position! If you pull it with the tires in the shipping position at any speed or over uneven surfaces the cart may tip over resulting in serious personal injury or death.
2. Check the tension in the tank strap and tighten if loose.
3. Check for loose bolts or damaged parts and tighten or repair as required.
4. Grease the front wheel pivot tube.
5. Check tire air pressure and inflate to 32psi if required.
6. Be sure that the tongue pin snaps into one of the holes in the inner tongue and is secure, before towing.
7. After filling your Seed Partner with seed, remove both ladders, turn them upside down and place in the field storage position. Secure the ladders in the field storage position with the klik pins.
WARNING: Never ride on the cart or allow anyone else to ride on it. The ladders and walkboard are to assist in filling the cart when it is not moving. If you ride on the cart or allow anyone to ride on it while it is moving, you or they may fall off resulting in serious personal injury or death.
8. The roll of stainless steel flex hose is to be connected to the airlock output.
NOTE: DO NOT START ENGINE OR USE BLOWER BEFORE FILLING WITH PROPER LUBRICANTS.
9. Adjust slide gate opening on airlock to maximum opening without overloading the engine and blower. It is advisable to close slide door and empty hopper before transporting the unit. Seed left in the airlock and exposed to moisture could swell and damage the airlock assembly.
10. Always shut off airlock and allow hose to clear of grain before throttling down the engine and shutting off the whole system.
NOTE: There is a time delay from turning off the switch to when the material quits flowing from the cyclone, some practice may be necessary for precise filling of seed boxes!
CAUTION: Ground clearance of the Seed Partner is reduced when airlock unit is attached, negotiate obstacles and uneven terrain carefully.
WARNING: Do not disconnect the air hoses while the blower is running. If you do seed may shoot out of the hose or the hose may whip resulting in possible personal injury and loss of seed.
DANGER: Do not pull the Seed Partner on steep slopes or above 20 mph. If you do the Seed
Partner may tip over resulting in damage to the cart and possible serious personal injury or death.

4. Lubricate the airlock and blower with “fogging oil” before and after the in-use season.
5. Clean and lubricate the machine before putting into storage. Do not leave seed or seed treatments/inoculants in or near the airlock.
IMPORTANT: Do Not Use a pipe wrench to free a stuck airlock.
6. Remove hoses from all fittings, cap or cover the hoses, airlock and blower fittings to repel rodents and moisture and to seal in lubricants.
7. Gasoline engines stored over 30 days need to be protected or drained of fuel to prevent gum from forming in fuel system or essential carburetor parts. For gasoline engine protection, we recommend use of Briggs &
Stratton fuel stabilizer available from an authorized Briggs & Stratton service dealer. Mix stabilizer with fuel tank or storage container. Run engine for a short time to circulate stabilizer through carburetor. Engine and fuel can be stored up to 24 months.
NOTE: If stabilizer is not used or if engine is operating on gasoline containing alcohol, e.g. gasohol, remove all fuel from tank and run engine until it stops from lack of fuel.
