Level Planter
Approximately
parallel with
planting surface
Level row units
Clevis adjustment holes
Toolbar should operate at 20"-22" (50 cm - 56 cm) height from planting surface. Tire pressures must be maintained at
pressures specified for planter to operate level laterally. Check toolbar and row unit parallel arms are level front to back
with planter lowered to proper operating height.
Five holes in the hitch bracket allow clevis to be raised or lowered. Clevis may be turned over for a finer adjustment
between mounting holes. Torque hardware to 840 ft-lb (1138.8 N-m).
Field and actual planting conditions determine which wheel settings to use to ensure row unit parallel arms are
approximately parallel with planting surface. If planting in extremely soft soil conditions it may be necessary to move
ground drive tires to lower sets of mounting holes. To allow adequate drive force after lowering the ground drive tires,
it may be necessary to lower contact drive arms to lower set of holes in wheel module and relocate down pressure
springs to lower mounting rod on wheel module.
If planter center is higher or lower than wings after rephasing, contact your Kinze Dealer for valve adjustment or
maintenance.
Contact Wheel Spring Adjustment

Spring length measurement (Factory setting)
Contact drive springs
There are two down pressure springs on each contact drive wheel. Spring tension is factory set to approximately 200 lb
(90.7 kg) of down force at tire contact point and should require no further adjustment.
NOTE: Measurement must be taken in planting position with proper tire pressure.

Contact Wheel Drive Sprockets
Contact drive wheel sprocket
Sprocket idler
Contact wheel drive
Optional half-rate drive sprocket
Contact wheel drive works the same for mechanical or vacuum planters except for sprocket size. Chain tension is
controlled by a spring-loaded sprocket idler. Planting rate charts in “Rate Chart” section help you select correct sprockets.
NOTE: Make a field test after each sprocket combination change to be sure you are planting at desired rate.
22 tooth, 28 tooth or 44 tooth sprockets at each contact drive wheel can be exchanged with sprockets on storage rod
bolted to wheel module on each side of planter chains. 22 tooth sprockets require 148 pitch No. 40 chains. 28
tooth sprockets require 150 pitch chains. 44 tooth sprockets require use 158 pitch chains.
NOTE: 22, 28 and 44 tooth drive sprockets do NOT apply to all rate charts. Check chart titles to make sure proper
rate chart is selected.
NOTE: 54 cell sunflower disc uses 15 tooth drive sprocket at contact wheels and 28 tooth drive sprocket at wheel
module reverser plates with 19 tooth sprocket. 15 tooth sprockets require 144 pitch No. 40 chains. Applicable
sprockets, chains and instructions supplied in G1K469 Sunflower Rate Reduction Kit.
Seed planting rate charts are based on standard rate drive. Standard rate drive uses a 30 tooth sprocket and No. 40 118
pitch chain on each contact wheel. Optional half-rate (2 to 1) drive is recommended only when population falls below planting
rate charts. Replace 30 tooth sprocket on each contact wheel with a 15 tooth sprocket and shorter No. 40 110 pitch chain.
This reduces planter transmission speed and planting and application rates by approximately 50%.
Seed Rate Transmission Adjustment
Planting population rate changes are made using seed
rate transmissions at end of each planter wing. Seed
rate transmissions allow simple, rapid changes of
sprockets by removing lynch pins on hexagon shafts
and changing sprockets with those from the sprocket
storage rod bolted to transmissions.
Drive
Chain tension is controlled by a spring-loaded dual
sprocket idler. Idler assembly is adjusted with a easyrelease idler arm with a release position to adjust
spring tension for planting or remove spring tension
for replacing sprockets. See ‘‘Wrap Spring Wrench
Operation’’.

Hydraulic/Electric Operation
Control console switches and tractor’s hydraulic system are used to raise planter to transport position, operate rotate
and tongue extension functions, lock and release planter wings, and raise and lower row markers.
NOTE: Turn console backlighting OFF during extended periods of non-use using push button switch on back
of console.
Single point row clutch control box
Two-speed point row clutch control box
Two dual remote hydraulic outlets (SCV) are required on all sizes of conventional planters equipped with row
markers. Three dual remote hydraulic outlets (SCV) are required on all sizes of bulk fill planters equipped with row
markers. One set of outlets is used to operate lift function, one set is used to operate markers, tongue and fold/unfold
functions and the third set is used to operate bulk fill functions (If Applicable).
Marker and point row selector switches are an ON-OFF-ON type. If planter is equipped with optional Two-Speed Point
Row Clutch Package, point row switch and reduced rate switch operate independently from rest of control console.
Power to marker switch is fed through auxiliary switch and two transport function switches. Operating any lower row
switch disables markers and turns off marker indicator light.
Raise/wing lock and rotate/tongue (fold function) switches are MOMENTARY ON-OFF-MOMENTARY ON type and must
be held in position while operating tractor hydraulic SCV control. Activating a fold function switch disables marker circuit.
WARNING
Marker selector switch must be OFF (center position) when not in
use to prevent accidental extension which could result in death or
serious injury, or damage to property and equipment. An indicator
light on control box panel is ON whenever marker circuits or point
row clutch circuits are energized.

Field Operation
Planters are designed to operate within a speed range of 2 - 8 mph (3 - 13 kph). Higher ground speeds can cause
more variation in seed spacing. Speeds above 5.5 mph (8.8 kph) are typically not recommended.
NOTICE: Always raise planter out of ground when making sharp turns or backing up.
Normal field planting operation requires use of tractor’s hydraulic control to raise and lower planter frame when making
field turn arounds. Place hydraulic lever in float position during normal field operation.
NOTICE: Operate row markers in float position to prevent damage to row markers.
Operate row markers with control console switch for that marker in ON (LEFT or RIGHT) position and tractor’s hydraulic
control. After markers are lowered to ground, move hydraulic control to operate markers in float position. Marker speed
is controlled with flow control valves located in planter hitch valve block. One valve controls raise speed and other valve
controls lower speed of both markers. See “Row Marker Speed Adjustment” and “Row Marker Operation”.

Row Marker Speed Adjustment
NOTICE
Excessive row marker travel speed can damage row markers.
Adjust flow controls before row markers are first used.
Marker hydraulic system includes two flow control valves. One
flow control valve sets lowering speed and one sets raising
speed of both markers. Flow controls determine amount of oil
flow restriction through valves, varying marker travel speed.
Loosen jam nut and turn control clockwise, or IN to slow travel
speed. Turn counterclockwise, or OUT to increase travel speed.
Tighten jam nut after adjustments are complete.
Raise
NOTE: Tractors with flow control valves. Make row marker
speed adjustment with tractor flow controls in maximum
position. After row marker speed is set, adjust tractor flow
controls to allow hydraulic control to stay in detent during
marker raise or lower cycle.
Lower
Row marker speed control adjustment
NOTE: Hydraulics operate slowly when oil is cold. Make all adjustments with oil warm.
NOTE: On a tractor where oil flow cannot be controlled, tractor flow rate may be greater than rate marker
cylinder can accept. Hold tractor hydraulic control lever until cylinder reaches end of its stroke. This occurs
most often on tractors with an open center hydraulic system.
Row Marker Chain Adjustment
WARNING
Uncontrolled marker movement can cause death or serious injury.
set marker switch OFF and shut off tractor prior to adjustment.
NOTE: Operate two-fold or three-fold row markers with the
tractor's hydraulic valve in float position.
Chain adjustment is critical. Adjust chain with second stage of
marker in vertical position and first stage in horizontal position.
Third stage
Chain must be adjusted so third stage of marker is pulled
out as soon as second stage begins outward travel. Chain
stretches with use and needs routine adjustment. It may be
necessary to twist chain for a finer adjustment.
Adjust chain
Marker chain is PROPERLY ADJUSTED if marker blade
pushes dirt 12" or less as marker completes fold into field
operating position. Chain should have some slack when marker
is in field operating position.
First stage
Marker chain is TOO LOOSE and should be adjusted if marker
blade pushes dirt more than 12" as it completes the fold into
field operating position.
Second stage
Marker chain is TOO TIGHT if it will not allow marker blade to
follow ground contour and chain is tight when marker is in field
operating position.

Vacuum System
Kinze vacuum seed metering system includes seed meters, seed discs, and an air system consisting of a hydraulic
driven vacuum fan which draws air through manifolds, hoses, and seed meters on each row unit.
WARNING
Moving fan blades can cause amputation or severe injury. Never
operate vacuum fan with cover removed.
Vacuum Fan Valve Block Assembly
A pressure relief valve prevents build up of oil pressure
over 35 PSI in case drain line when vacuum fan motor
is operating. This valve vent oils outside through a
drain hole in aluminum valve block. This can occur
whenever case drain is improperly connected or
pressure in motor circuit builds.
Valve block contains a check valve that prevents
vacuum fan from operating in wrong direction if
pressure is applied to return side of motor and allows
fan to coast to a stop when tractor hydraulic control is
returned to neutral position.
Vacuum fan valve block
See “Hydraulic Schematic (Vacuum Fan System)” in Lubrication and Maintenance section.
NOTE: Fan turns at a reduced speed If reverse pressure is applied.

Output hub
Wrap spring
Input hub
Stop collar
Control tang
Clutch consists of a wrap spring riding on an input and output hub. Wrap spring is wrapped tightly over hubs during
operation locking them together. Higher speeds create a tighter grip of spring on hubs.
Input end of spring is bent outward and is called the control tang. Control tang fits into a slot in stop collar located
between input and output hubs over wrap spring. If stop collar is allowed to rotate with input hub, clutch is engaged. If
stop collar is stopped from rotating, control tang connected to it is forced back and spring opens. This allows input hub
to continue rotating without transmitting torque to output hub, stopping planter drive.
Stop collar is controlled by an electric solenoid and an actuator arm. When selector switch on tractor control box is
OFF, solenoid coil is NOT ENERGIZED and actuator arm will not contact stop on stop collar, allowing it to rotate with
hubs and drive planter.
When operational switch is in “DISENGAGE” (right or left) solenoid coil IS ENERGIZED and plunger in solenoid coil
pulls actuator arm against stop on stop collar, disengaging wrap spring and stopping planter drive.

Field Test
Perform a field test with any change of field and/or planting conditions, seed size or planter adjustment to ensure
proper seed placement and operation of row units.
 Check planter for front to rear and lateral level operation. See “Level Planter”.
 Check all row units to be certain they are running level. Row unit parallel arms should be approximately parallel to the ground when planting.
 Check row markers for proper operation and adjustment. See “Row Marker Speed Adjustment”, "Row Marker Chain Adjustment", and “Row Marker Length and Disc Blade Adjustment”.
 Check for proper application rates and placement of granular chemicals on all rows. See “Field Check Granular Chemical Application”.
 Check for desired depth placement and seed population on all rows. See “Field Check Seed Population”.
 Check for proper application rates of fertilizer on all rows. See “Fertilizer Application Rate Chart”.

NOTE: Seeds may bounce or roll when planting with closing wheels raised and planting depth set shallow
affecting seed spacing accuracy.
4. Count seeds in measured distance.
5. Multiply number of seeds placed in 1/1000 of an acre (hectare) by 1000. This gives total population.
EXAMPLE: 30" (70 cm) row spacing 17' 5" (14.28 m) equals 1/1000 acre.
26 seeds counted x 1000 = 26,000 seeds per acre
Seed count can be affected by drive wheel and seed meter drive ratio, tire pressure, and/or seed meter malfunction.
1. If seed check shows average distance between seeds in inches is significantly different than seed rate chart indicates, first check drive ratio between drive wheel and seed meter. Check drive wheel air pressure, check for incorrect sprocket(s) in driveline and check drive and driven sprockets on transmission(s) for proper selection.
2. Check for seed meter malfunction. For example, if spacing between kernels of corn at the transmission setting being used is 8" (20 cm) and a gap of 16" (40 cm) is observed, a finger has lost its seed and not functioned properly. If two seeds are found within a short distance of each other, finger has metered two seeds instead of one.
3. See “Seed Meter (Finger Pickup) Troubleshooting” or “Seed Meter (Brush-Type) Troubleshooting” in Troubleshooting Section of this manual.
Determining Pounds Per Acre (Brush-Type Meter)
Seeds per acre ÷ Seeds per pound (from label) = Pounds per acre
If seeds per pound information is not available use the following averages:
2,600 seeds per pound for medium size soybeans
15,000 seeds per pound for medium size milo/grain sorghum
4,500 seeds per pound for medium size cotton
Determining Bushels Per Acre
Pounds per acre ÷ Seed unit weight = Bushels per acre
Average Unit Weight of:
1 Bushel Soybeans = 60 Pounds (27.2 kg)
1 Bushel Milo/Grain Sorghum = 56 Pounds (25.4 kg)
1 Bushel Cotton = 32 Pounds (14.5 kg)
If seed population check shows planting rate is significantly different than seed rate chart shows or if a particular
meter is not planting accurately, see “Brush-Type Seed Meter Maintenance” and “Seed Meter (Brush-Type)

NOTE: DO NOT apply graphite only in center of hopper. It will filter too quickly through the seed and not
distribute as evenly as desired.
Apply graphite around outer perimeter of hopper.
ASD Hoppers
Mix 1 pound (.5 kg) bottle of powdered graphite each time the bulk seed hopper is filled. Graphite should be added in
layers as the bulk seed hoppers are filled. Regular graphite use prolongs life of the seed meter components, improves
seed spacing, and may reduce buildup of seed treatments.
Adding graphite to conventional hopper
Adding graphite ASD hopper
NOTE: Additional graphite may be required to retard buildup of seed treatments on meter components. More
frequent cleaning of monitor seed tubes may be necessary due to use of additional graphite.
Talc seed lubricant may be used as a drying agent in addition to graphite lubrication. The drying agent may improve
seed release and/or to retard buildup of seed treatments on meter components.
1. Fill hopper ½ full of seed, add ¼ cup (59 ml) (conventional); 2 pounds (1 kg) (ASD) of talc and mix thoroughly.
2. Finish filling hopper, add another ¼ cup (59 ml) (conventional); 2 pounds (1 kg) (ASD) of talc and mix thoroughly.
3. Adjust rate of talc use as needed so all seeds are coated, while avoiding a buildup of talc in bottom of hopper.
Humid conditions and/or small sized seeds with extra seed treatment may require additional talc to maintain meter
performance.
NOTE: Liquid seed treatments or innoculants may create buildup on the seed disc or brushes. Check
frequently for proper population and/or seed delivery when using any liquid seed treatment.
Completely mix all treatments with seed following manufacturers’ recommendations. Seed treatment dumped on top of seed
after hopper is filled may not mix properly and cause seed bridging, reducing population or stopping meter from planting.

Bayer Fluency Agent
Bayer Fluency Agent is an alternate seed lubricant by Bayer Crop Science. The intent of this product is to replace
graphite and talc lubricants and to lower the amount of dust emissions from planter vacuum fans.
This product, as tested by Kinze, is compatible with Kinze’s bulk fill system and vacuum meters. Due to limited testing,
wear life characteristics of meters and bulk fill systems that use Bayer Fluency Agent are not yet known. Please follow
Bayer Fluency Agent instructions for rates and mixing directions.
NOTE: Presently, Bayer Fluency Agent is only required to be used in Canada with Bulk Fill or Vacuum planters
that plant corn or beans treated with neonicotinoids. Farms outside of Canada, farms not using seed treated
with neonicotinoids, and farms not using pneutmatic metering devices do not need to use Bayer Fluency
Agent. All planters not equipped with vacuums or fans are exempt from using Bayer Fluency Agent.

General Planting Rate Information
NOTICE
Sprocket combinations in these charts are for average conditions.
Changes in sprocket combinations may be required for desired
planting population. ALWAYS MAKE FIELD CHECKS TO BE SURE
YOU ARE PLANTING AT DESIRED RATE.
NOTICE
Seed additives added in the hopper may affect finger pickup seed
meter performance and accelerate wear.
NOTE: Seed size and shape may affect planting rate.
NOTE: Not all row spacings listed apply to all size planters.
NOTE: Speeds above 6.0 MPH (10 KPH) can adversely affect seed spacing.
Mechanical
Finger Pickup Corn Meter
Larger grades generally plant more accurately at the high end of the ground speed range than smaller grades. Higher than
optimum speeds may result in population rate increase or higher incidence of doubles, particularly with small seed. Medium round
corn seed is most desirable for planting accuracy at optimum speed.
Finger Pickup Oil Sunflower Meter
Larger grades generally plant more accurately at the high end of the ground speed range than smaller grades. Higher than
optimum speeds may result in population rate increase or higher incidence of doubles, particularly with small seed. No. 3 and/or No.
4 size oil sunflower seeds are recommended for use in finger pickup seed meters equipped with oil sunflower fingers. No. 1 and/or
No. 2 size confectionery sunflower seeds are recommended for use in finger pickup seed meters equipped with corn fingers.
Brush-Type Seed Meter (Soybean, Milo/Grain Sorghum, Acid-Delinted Cotton)
Rate charts are given in seeds per acre as well as seed spacing in inches rounded to nearest tenth of an inch. Because of large range in
seed size, pounds per acre is not a suggested method of selecting transmission settings. Smaller size seed pounds per acre may be below
what was expected and large seed pounds per acre may appear above expectations. To determine pounds per acre, use formula given in
“Determining Pounds Per Acre (Brush-Type Seed Meter)” in “Check Seed Population” in Machine Operation section of this manual.
NOTE: Planting speed can affect actual seeding rate. Make a field check and adjust transmission setting to obtain desired
seed drop.
NOTE: Seed population per acre with 15" rows double rate for 30" rows, as well as 18" rows versus 36" rows and 19" rows
versus 38" rows, at listed sprocket combination. See following pages.
NOTE: Half Rate (2 to 1) Drive Reduction Package may be required to obtain desired population and seed spacing when
planting 15" row soybeans or other crops. Half Rate Drive with brush-type seed meters reduces planter transmission
speed. Seeding rate will be approximately 50% of chart reading when using Half Rate
(2 To 1) Drive Reduction Package.
EXAMPLE: 30" row spacing using 60 cell seed discs in brush-type seed meters.
80,928 ÷ 2 = 40,464 Population (2.6" Seed Spacing x 2 = 5.2" Seed Spacing)
Vacuum
NOTE: Contact wheel drive sprocket references are located in each chart title.
NOTE: 22, 28 and 44 tooth drive sprockets are NOT applicable to all rate charts. Check chart titles to ensure proper
rate chart is selected. 22 tooth sprockets require use of 148 pitch No. 40 chains, 28 tooth sprockets require use
of 150 pitch No. 40 chains and 44 tooth sprockets require use of 158 pitch No. 40 chains.
NOTE: When using 54 cell sunflower disc, use 15 tooth drive sprocket at contact wheels and replace 28 tooth
drive sprocket at wheel module reverser plates with 19 tooth sprocket. 15 tooth sprockets require use of 144 pitch
No. 40 chains. Applicable sprockets, chains, and instructions supplied in G1K469 Sunflower Rate Reduction Kit.

PLANTING RATES FOR BRUSH-TYPE SEED METERS (STANDARD DRIVE)
APPROXIMATE HILLS/ACRE FOR VARIOUS ROW WIDTHS
Due to variations in cotton seed size, meters equipped with the 12 cell acid-delinted hill-drop cotton discs will plant from
3 to 6 seeds per cell. Select proper disc for seed size range to be planted.
To determine planter transmission setting, determine desired hill spacing and select the transmission ratio closest to the
hill spacing in inches on the chart. To decrease population increase spacing. To increase population decrease spacing.
To determine population per acre, determine average seeds per hill and hills per acre by doing a field check. Measure
1∕1000 of an acre (1∕1000 acre = Length of row 17' 5" for 30" row width, 23' 9" for 22" row width and 26' 2" for 20" row width).
Multiply average seeds per hill by hills per acre. EXAMPLE: 4 seeds per hill x (13 hills x 1000) = 52,000

Charts are for planters equipped with contact drive. Check tires for correct operating pressure.
Charts calculated based on a solution weighing ten pounds per gallon.
NOTE: Fertilizer application rates can vary from weights calculated in above chart. Make field checks to be
sure you are applying fertilizer at desired rate.
To check the exact number of gallons your fertilizer attachment will actually deliver on a 30" row spacing:
1. Remove hose from one fertilizer opener and insert it into a collection container secured planter frame.
2. Engage fertilizer attachment and drive forward for 174'.
3. Measure fluid ounces caught in container and multiply by 100. Divide that amount by 128. Result is gallons
fertilizer delivered per acre when planting in 30" rows. To convert this delivery rate for other row widths, multiply by the following conversion factors:
20" x 1.50
22" x 1.36
38" x 0.79
4. Rinse collection container and repeat test on other rows if necessary.

Brush-type seed meter parts
Use clean, high quality seed. Damaged or cracked seed, hulls, or foreign materials can become lodged in upper brush
and greatly reduce meter accuracy. Remove seed disc daily and check for buildup of foreign material on seed disc,
particularly in seed loading slots. Clean disc by washing it with soap and water. Check for cracked seed, hulls, etc.
lodged between brush retainer and stainless steel wear band which can greatly reduce accuracy of the meter because
upper brush will not be able to retain seed in seed disc pocket. Thoroughly clean brush areas of meter housing.
SEED DISC WEAR
Seed loading slots
Most seed disc wear is found in the agitation groove area (area
between seed loading slots). Wear affects planting accuracy at
high RPM. Lay a straight edge across disc surface at agitation
groove area and measure gap between disc and straight edge.
If agitation groove areas are worn in excess of .030" (7.6 mm)
and accuracy starts to drop off at higher meter RPM, replace
seed disc. Estimated seed disc life expectancy under normal
operating conditions is approximately 200 acres (81 hectares)
per row. Severe operating conditions such as dust, lack of
lubrication or abrasive seed coating could reduce seed disc life
expectancy to under 100 acres (40.5 hectares) per row.

UPPER BRUSH
M0261-01
Upper brush
Upper brush holds seed in seed disc pocket in seed retention
area. Brush must apply enough pressure against seed in
seed disc pocket as disc rotates through seed retention area
to prevent seed from dropping out of disc pocket. A damaged
spot, excessive brush wear, or foreign material lodged in brush
may greatly reduce meter performance.

LOWER BRUSH
Lower brush moves seed down seed loading slots to seed pockets, isolates seed in reservoir from entering seed tube,
and cleans seed loading slots. Estimated lower brush life expectancy is 240-800 acres (97-324 hectares) per row. Replace
lower brush if bristles are deformed or missing, or if there are cracks in brush retainer.
Cleaning Brush-Type Seed Meter For Storage
1. Remove meter from seed hopper by removing two thumbscrews securing meter to hopper.
2. Remove seed disc and wash with soap and water and dry thoroughly.

Inspect and clean seed discs daily checking for any buildup of foreign material and blocked orifices. If seed disc orifices
are plugged frequently with seed remnants, remnants ejector wheel may need to be replaced. Clean seed disc by
washing it with soap and water. Dry thoroughly.
Inspect singulator blades and guide for wear after every 200 acres (81 hectares) per row of operation. If adjustment of
singulator blade does not affect meter performance or if blades appear worn, singulator blade may need to be replaced.
Replace seed disc or vacuum seal if abnormally high vacuum is required or if consistent operation cannot be achieved.
See "Preparation for Storage" on page 5-36 for additional Vacuum Seed Metering System maintenance.
NOTE: Remove seed discs from meters for annual storage and store them vertically on a dowel or pipe.
Seed Meter Cleanout
NOTE: Use of damaged seed or seed containing foreign material will cause plugging of seed cell orifices and
require more frequent seed meter cleanout to prevent underplanting.
Thorough seed meter cleanout is important to maintain genetic purity.
1. Disengage seed drive and remove seed hopper and meter.
2. Dump seed from right rear corner of hopper into a container.
3.Lay hopper on its right side. Push release button and rotate seed meter vacuum cover clockwise to align keyhole
slots with bolt heads. Lift off cover.
4. Rotate seed disc hub clockwise to unlock and remove seed disc.
5. Empty meter.
6. Thoroughly inspect meter to ensure all seed is removed.

15" Seed Opener Disc Blade/Bearing Assembly
NOTICE
Excessive blade contact may result in premature disc
opener bearing/hub failures and excessive wear on seed
tube guard/inner scraper. When properly adjusted, if one
blade is held in fixed position, opposite blade should rotate
with less than 5 pounds force (22 newtons) at outer edge
of blade.
Maintain approximately 1" ± ½" (3 ± .5 cm) of blade-to-blade
contact to properly open and form seed trench. As blade diameter
decreases due to wear, it is necessary to relocate machine
bushings from inside to outside to maintain 1" ± ½" (3 ± .5 cm) of
contact.
Approximately
3 cm ± .5 cm
blade-to-blade
contact.
NOTE: Proper blade clearance is critical. Blades should have 1" ± ½" (3 ± .5 cm) contact in this area. When
blades are turned by hand in opposite directions against each other, there should be only light resistance to
turning. Re-adjust blade scraper if necessary to center it between the blades.
NOTE: Replace blades If proper blade-to-blade contact cannot be maintained after relocating machine
bushings or if blade diameter wears below 14½" (37 cm).
REPLACE DISC BLADE/BEARING ASSEMBLY
NOTE: Only bearing may need to be replaced if there is excessive endplay or if bearing sounds or feels rough
when disc blade is rotated.
1. Remove gauge wheel, scraper, and bearing dust cap.

Check Valve
A check valve is located in each vacuum fan motor block assembly and operates as a
return line check to prevent vacuum fan motor reverse operation. Check valves are also
located in valve block on left wing and trap oil flow in planter’s lift system to keep toolbar
level during field operation. Another check valve is located in junction block on left wing
of planter on 24 Row 30" and 36 Row 20" sizes. Remove and inspect valve If it does not
operate properly. Check for foreign material and if O-ring is leaking internally. Replace if
defective.
Dentent Lever Valve
Detent lever valve, located near tower assembly on R.H. side of machine, blocks oil flow
from master cylinders until slave cylinders are at same height as master cylinders when
planter is being lowered from transport into field position. Contact your Kinze Dealer for
service.
Flow Control Valves
Two flow control valves are located in valve block on right wing of planter. Flow control
valves should be adjusted for row marker raise and lower speed as part of assembly
procedure or upon initial operation. If valve fails to function properly or requires frequent
adjustment, it should be removed for inspection. Check for foreign material and
contamination on valve and seating areas of valve body. Replace defective components.

Valve Assembly
Function
TM
Located on inboard side of A8421 to create 1000 psi pressure on
pilot lines to ensure wing wheels lower together.
Blocks flow from port 2 to 1 until pressure exceeds valve set
pressure (1000 psi). Allows free reverse flow from 1 to 2 if
pressure at 1 is at least 10 psi greater than pressure at 2.
Shuts off hydraulic flow to set field turn height.
Opens pilot operated check valves in A8420 when lowering.
Traps oil in butt ends of wing cylinders until pilot pressure from
A8421 opens check valves and allows cylinders to retract.
Controls markers and marker speed. Routes hydraulic flow to
tongue and fold cylinders.
Blocks oil from exiting wing cylinders when lowering until center
of planter reaches a predetermined height (level toolbars) and
then is mechanically opened.
Planter lift circuit juction block. Routes hydraulic flow to all planter
lift related valves.
Controls tongue lift cylinder and routes hydraulic hoses to left and
right side drag links.
Oil enters D3 and flows past V14 to rod end of slave cylinders
when lowering planter. Oil from rod side of slave cylinders goes in
D6 and D7 when raising planter. V14 is closed so oil goes out D5
to height stop plunger and comes back in on D4 to tractor.
Oil flows directly to tractor when V14 is energized and allows
planter to raise to transport height.
1500 psi relief valve. Allows lower from transport.
