Look for Safety Symbol
The SAFETY ALERT SYMBOL indicates there is a
potential hazard to personal safety involved and extra
safety precaution must be taken. When you see this
symbol, be alert and carefully read the message that
follows it. In addition to design and configuration of
equipment, hazard control and accident prevention are
dependent upon the awareness, concern, prudence and
proper training of personnel involved in the operation,
transport, maintenance and storage of equipment.
Be Aware of Signal Words
Signal words designate a degree or level of hazard
seriousness.
DANGER, and the color Safety Red, indicate an
imminent hazard which, if not avoided, will result in death
or serious injury. This signal word is limited to the most
extreme situations, typically for machine components
that, for functional purposes, cannot be guarded.
WARNING, and the color Safety Orange, indicate a
potential hazard which, if not avoided, could result in
death or serious injury, and includes hazards that are
exposed when guards are removed. It may also be used
to alert against unsafe practices.
CAUTION, and the color Safety Yellow, indicate a
potential hazard which, if not avoided, may result in
minor or moderate injury. It may also be used to alert
against unsafe practices.
Prepare for Emergencies
▲ Be prepared if a fire starts
▲ Keep a first aid kit and fire extinguisher handy.
▲ Keep emergency numbers for doctor, ambulance, hospital
and fire department near phone.
Be Familiar with Safety Decals
▲ Read and understand “Safety Decals” on page 5,
thoroughly.
▲ Read all instructions noted on the decals.
▲ Keep decals clean. Replace damaged, faded and illegible
decals.

Important Safety Information
Table of Contents
Index
Use an Adequate Tractor
Model 3P606NT only:
▲ Ensure that the tractor is rated for, and correctly ballasted
for the drill’s 3-point loading. Check that drill plus ballast
does not exceed the tractor’s capability.
▲ Avoid transport with material loaded in boxes.
Model 606NT only:
▲ Ensure that the tractor weighs at least 2⁄3 (67%) of the drill
(including the weight of any Options and materials).
▲ Avoid transport with material loaded in boxes.
Use A Safety Chain
(Model 606NT only)
▲ Use a safety chain to help control drawn machinery should
it separate from tractor drawbar.
▲ Use a chain with a strength rating equal to or greater than
the gross weight of towed machinery.
▲ Attach chain to tractor drawbar support or other specified
anchor location. Allow only enough slack in chain to permit
turning.
▲ Replace chain if any links or end fittings are broken,
stretched or damaged.
▲ Do not use safety chain for towing.
Keep Riders Off Machinery
Riders obstruct the operator’s view. Riders could be
struck by foreign objects or thrown from the machine.
▲ Never allow children to operate equipment.
▲ Keep all bystanders away from machine during operation.
Use Safety Lights and Devices
Slow-moving tractors and towed implements can create
a hazard when driven on public roads. They are difficult
to see, especially at night.
▲ Use flashing warning lights and turn signals whenever
driving on public roads.
▲ Use lights and devices provided with implement
Transport Machinery Safely
Maximum transport speed for the implement on its own
tires is 20 mph (30 kph). Rough terrain may require a
slower speed. Sudden braking can cause a towed load to
swerve and upset.
▲ Do not exceed 20 mph (30 kph). Travel only at a speed
which allows adequate control of steering and stopping.
▲ Comply with state and local laws.
▲ Carry reflectors or flags to mark drill in case of breakdown
on the road.
▲ 3-point implements reduce weight on steering tires. Verify
that tractor is correctly ballasted. Watch for signs of poor
steering traction.

Height Setup: Model 606NT
2
Set Tool Bar Height
Refer to Figure 11 and Figure 12
Tool bar height 1 is controlled by a depth stop
assembly 2 on the left lift cylinder.
1
The suggested initial tool bar operating height is:
1 243§4 in. (62.9 cm)
from the base of the opener tool bar to the ground, when
lowered in field conditions (opener discs in ground).
1. Use the tractor remote circuit to raise the drill to the
full extension of both lift cylinders. Hold the drill
raised for several seconds to re-phase the cylinders.
Remove any transport locks.
2. In field conditions, lower the drill to the desired tool
bar height. Pull forward to put openers in ground.
Set the remote to Neutral. Shut off the tractor.
3. Loosen the nut and bolt 3 that secure the stop
weldment 4 to the cylinder rod.
4. Slide the weldment up the rod until it contacts the
valve actuator 5 , then slide it up another
1⁄ in. (3 mm). Tighten the bolt.
8
Figure 11
Pull-Type Tool Bar Height

Field Results Risk:
Prior to first use, check tool bar height 1 or the drill may run
too deep. Model 606NT drills may be shipped with the depth
stop valve actuator 2 set to maximum depth. The actuator
must be adjusted to desired opener height prior to first use.
5. Start the tractor. Raise and lower the drill. Pull
forward in ground. The lowering stops when the
weldment moves the actuator a short distance.
Shut off the tractor and verify the tool bar height.
5
4
Note: If further adjustment is required, the drill height
changes at approximately half the change in
weldment position. For example, raising the drill
another 1⁄8 in. (3 mm) would require moving the
weldment up another 1⁄4 in. (6 mm).
Level Model 606NT
Refer to Figure 13
1. Use hitch turnbuckle

Operation Instructions
This section covers general operating procedures.
Experience, machine familiarity and the following
information will lead to efficient operation and good
working habits. Always operate farm machinery with
safety in mind.
Pre-Start Checklist
High Pressure Fluid Hazard:
Escaping fluid under pressure can have sufficient pressure to
penetrate the skin. Check all hydraulic lines and fittings before
applying pressure. Fluid escaping from a very small hole can
be almost invisible. Use paper or cardboard, not body parts,
and wear heavy gloves to check for suspected leaks. If an
accident occurs, seek immediate medical assistance from a
physician familiar with this type of injury.
1. Carefully read “Important Safety Information”
starting on page 1.
2. Lubricate drill per “Lubrication and Scheduled
Maintenance” starting on page 44.
3. Check all tires for proper inflation. See “Tire
Pressures” on page 54.
4. Check all bolts, pins and fasteners. See “Torque
Values Chart” on page 55.
5. Check drill for worn or damaged parts. Repair or
replace faulty parts before going to the field.
6. Check hydraulic hoses, fittings and cylinders for
leaks. Repair or replace faulty parts before going to
the field.
7. Rotate both drive wheel to verify that the drive and
meters are working properly and free from foreign
material.
WARNING
Falling Hazard:
Watch your step when walking on drill steps and walkboard.
Falling from drill could cause severe injury or death.
2014-02-10

Transporting 3P606NT
Transport considerations are different for 3-point and
pull-type models. For pull-type, see page 19.
Use an Adequate Tractor (3-Point)
Loss of Control Hazard:
Insufficient weight on tractor steering tires can dangerously
reduce steering authority, particularly during acceleration and
ascending hills. You can lose directional control entirely,
which could result in a major accident, serious injury, or
death. Adding too much ballast could lead to brake or other
mechanical failures, tire failures and loss of control.
▲ Ensure that the tractor is rated for, and correctly ballasted
for the drill’s 3-point loading. Check that drill plus ballast
does not exceed the tractor’s capability.
▲ If the drill has accessory weight brackets, consider moving
any tractor weights present to the tractor during transport.
▲ Avoid transport with material loaded in boxes.
The total drill weight and center of gravity vary
considerably with drill configuration and material load.

Transport Hazard:
Failure of hydraulic cylinders during transport causes drill to
drop suddenly, which could lead to a serious accident, injury
or death. To prevent an accident, always install cylinder locks
before transporting drill.
Before transporting the drill, check these items:

Transport Cautiously
Keep Clearance in Mind
Remember that the drill may be wider than the tractor.
Allow safe clearance.
Observe Road Rules
Comply with all national, regional and local safety laws
when traveling on public roads.
Reduce speed on rough roads.
Loss of Control Hazard:
Towing at high speeds or with a vehicle that is not heavy
enough could lead to loss of vehicle control. Loss of vehicle
control could lead to serious road accidents, injury and death.
To reduce the hazard, do not exceed 20 mph (30 kph).
Loading Seed
3
2
1
Possible Chemical Hazard:
Take all prescribed material safety precautions.
Fully loaded with dense seed, the drill weighs an
additional 1155 lbs (529 kg). Include this weight when
checking tractor capability.
The drill must be hitched for seed loading.
Load slightly more material than needed, because
consumption rates can vary between compartments
even though the furrow rates are identical.

1. Check that all meter doors are positioned for the
seed size, and not set for clean-out. See “Position
Seed Cup Doors” in seed Rate Manual. If loading
prior to transport, set them to position 1 (smallest
seed).
2. Install or remove optional seed plugs as desired for
the row spacing planned. Refer to Seed Rate
Manual.

Loading Native Grass Box
1. The main seed box lid handle is also a latch. It needs
to pivot up to release the lid.
2. Load seed evenly into compartments.
3. Add 1⁄3 cup (80 mL) graphite seed lubricant on top of
the loaded seed. In humid conditions, double or triple
this amount as needed.

Loading Small Seeds Box
If loading prior to transport, and calibration has not yet
been done, set Seed Rate Handle to 0. At 0, and with the
doors at 1, no seed can leak during transport.
1. If loading prior to transport, and calibration has not

Field Operation
1. Hitch drill to a suitable tractor (page 12).
For model 3P606NT, continue at step 5.
2. Raise drill. Hold at raised for several seconds to
re-phase lift cylinders. Set circuit to Neutral. Shut off
tractor.
Refer to Figure 16 page 20 and Figure 15 on page 20
3. Remove transport lock channels from cylinder rods.
Move them to storage and re-pin. See page 20.
Refer to Figure 20
4. Engage drive with lock-out hub on the left gauge
wheel. Pull pin 5 away from hub. Rotate 90°.
Release into deeper notch pair.
Note: Pin may not seat fully immediately, but will at next
drill movement.
5
5. Set seed population per rate chart and calibration,
from Seed Rate manual.
6. Load box with clean seed.
7. Raise drill. Using calibration crank or 3-point gauge
gauge wheel, operate the meter drive system. Check
that feed cups, seed tubes and drives are working
properly and free from foreign material by looking for
seed flow under each opener.
Figure 20
Lock-Out Hub Engaged
18480
8. Lower drill. With a 3-point model, set hitch to Float.
9. Pull forward. Stop. Check tool bar height and opener
depth.
10. Begin seeding.
11. Always lift drill out of the ground when turning at row
ends and for other short-radius turns. Seeding stops
automatically as drill is raised.
Machine Damage Risk:
Never back up with openers in the ground. Seed tube and
firmer damage is likely. Seed tube plugging is almost certain.
Always raise the drill when stopped and prior to reversing.
Re-Phasing Cylinders
To re-phase the cylinders, raise drill completely and hold
tractor hydraulic lever on for a few seconds to give
cylinders time to re-phase.
To Tractor
The lift cylinders may, after a period of time, get out of
time or phase. The effects of this can be seen when one
side of the drill is running too low or too high because its
lift cylinder is either over extended or not retracted
compared to the other lift cylinder.
Each time drill is raised out of ground momentarily
reverse hydraulic lever immediately after re-phasing to
allow cylinders to retract about 1⁄2 in. (2.5 cm). This helps
maintain a level drill.
Note: Having cylinders become gradually out of time is
different than having air trapped in the system, a
problem remedied by bleeding (page 42).

Acremeter Operation
An electronic acremeter is standard on Models 3P606NT
and 606NT. You may have any of three different meter
styles.
The acremeter counts shaft rotations whenever the shaft
is rotating - this is with the drill lowered and in motion or
during crank operation. The meter is programmed to
display rotations as acres or hectares, when using all
rows, factory-specified tires and tire inflations.
Note: Unusual conditions and/or non-standard row
spacings can cause the acremeter tally to vary
from actual acres planted.

Adjustments
To get full performance from your drill, you need an
understanding of all component operations, and many
provide adjustments for optimal field results. Some of
these have been covered earlier in this manual.
Even if your planting conditions rarely change, some
items need periodic adjustment due to normal wear.
Seed Rates
Seeds are applied by fluted feed meters driven by the left
end or center gauge wheel. Independent mechanisms
control the rate for each box. Changing one rate does not
affect the rate of other boxes.
Rate setting details are in Seed Rate manual 313-523B.
Planting Depth
Setting nominal planting depth, and achieving it
consistently, is affected by multiple adjustable drill
functions. From greatest to least effect they are:
Main Box seed rate is controlled by adjustments for:
• Opener depth (press wheel height)
• Feed Cup Door handle (one each seed tube)
• Coulter depth
Native Grass (Option) Seed rate is controlled by:
• Opener down-pressure (spring)
• Sprocket pairings at drill front
• Opener frame down-force (optional weights)
• Rate Reduction kit (if used)
• Row unit down-pressure spring
Small Seeds (Option) rate is controlled by a Rate
Handle (drill rear).
• Opener (tool bar) height
• Drive Type gearbox lever
• Rate handle at seed box (drill front)
• Disc blade adjustments (as discs wear)

Frame Weight Adjustment
In some challenging no-till conditions, the drill may not
have enough weight to enable consistent coulter soil
penetration. In such cases, additional weight may help.
1
An optional weight bracket kit is available. See page 53
for ordering information. The kit includes two brackets 1 .
The kit itself adds 180 pounds (82 kg) to the drill. It
accepts up to 600 pounds (272 kg) of standard tractor
weights (300 pounds on each bracket), for a maximum of
780 pounds (354 kg) additional weight.
See table at right for available down-force per coulter,
with various drill and weight kit configurations.
Possible Transport Hazard:
Re-check that the tractor or towing vehicle is adequate for
transport, particularly with a 3-point drill. Consider
transporting without weights on the drill. A weight kit with
maximum weights can increase empty drill weight by 34%.
Tractor Damage / Field Results Risks:
With weights installed, re-check that the tractor is adequate to
pull the drill afield. A tractor that was marginal with the
standard drill may provide inadequate performance with
accessory weights.
Always install equal weight on each bracket. Unbalanced
weights causes uneven furrow and seeding depth across the
drill.
Note: The maximum number of tractor weights may vary
by weight style and supplier.
After installing weights, re-check frame height and level
(page 15), coulter depth (page 29) and opener disc
depth (page 36).

Coulter Adjustments
Refer to Figure 29
A no-till coulter 1 , is mounted directly ahead of each
opener on the drill. The coulters cut through heavy trash
and make a groove in the soil for the openers.
3
The coulter is designed to operate with its spring 2 at full
extension. The spring is briefly compressed as the disc
encounters and rides over difficult obstructions.
2
Coulter Depth
Land Pride recommends operating at a tool bar height of
243§4 in. (62.9 cm). Small adjustments may be required
for unusual seeding depths and as coulter discs wear. If
the coulters are not reaching desired depth (and the
springs are uncompressed), the drill may need more
weight (page 28).
Drill-wide coulter depth is controlled by tool bar height.
The coulters are mounted on the drill frame. Group
coulter cutting depth changes as the drill height is raised
and lowered.

opener disc depth is 1⁄4 in. (6 mm) above coulter
depth.
Tool bar height is set by the tractor hitch for 3-point drills,
and by cylinder depth stop (page 16) for pull-type drills.
Individual Coulter Depth
Refer to Figure 29 and Figure 30
Individual coulter depth may be adjusted by raising and
lowering the spring bar 3 .
18645
Seeding Depth Risk:
When adjusting coulter height, also reset opener spring force
(page 32). Changing the coulter height changes the distance
between row unit and spring attachment.
1. Determine the new coulter depth desired, and/or the
difference between that and the current depth.
2. Raise the drill until the coulter discs are just touching
the ground. The press wheels are supporting some
row unit weight at this point.
3. Measure the current spring bar length 5 , from
bottom of tool bar to bottom of spring bar. For
reference, the factory setting is:
5 12 1§8in.(30.5 3mm)
Determine the new bar length required.
4. Loosen the clamp bolts 6 . Use a mallet to adjust the
bar height. Re-tighten the clamp bolts to Grade 5
torque specification.

This is not part of the opener, but is co-mounted with
it on the tool bar. See “Coulter Adjustments” on
page 29.
2. Opener Discs (standard)
Row-unit double disc openers create the seedbed
furrow. They have adjustments for spacing. See
“Disc Blade Adjustments” on page 33.
3. Main Seed Hose (standard)
Seed released by the metering cups is gravity fed by
the hose to the seed tube (not shown) between the
opener discs. The hose and seed tube require no
adjustments.

5. Inside Scraper (standard)
This feature helps prevent soil buildup on the inside
surfaces of the opener discs, allowing them to meet
sharply and prepare a crisp seed furrow. See “Disc
Scraper Adjustment” on page 34.
32720
6. Seed Firmer (seed flap standard)
A seed firmer confines seed bounce and can press
the seed into the furrow. The standard seed flap
requires1 no adjustments. See “Seed Flap
Replacement” on page 41. Optional Keeton® or
Seed-Lok® firmers do have adjustments. See “Seed
Firmer Adjustments” on page 35.
7. Option Seed Hose(s) (optional)
If Native Grass or Small Seeds options are installed,
there will be one or two additional seed hoses at or
aft of the springs. The Small Seeds tube may be
reversed if desired. See “Seed Firmer
Adjustments” on page 35.
8. Press Wheel Height (standard)
The T-handle is primary control for seeding depth.
See “Opener Depth (Press Wheel Height)” on
page 36. The press wheels have no other
adjustments, but a choice of press wheel styles and
sizes is available. Consult your dealer.
Machine Damage Risk:
Never back up with row units on or in the ground. Seed tubes
will plug or be seriously damaged. Raise the drill for all
reverse and short radius turns, and when stopping while facing
up hill.
1. The seed flap may need to be shortened in length if an optional Keeton® or Seed-Lok® firmer is installed.

Opener Spring
Opener springs provide the down pressure necessary for
opener discs to open a seed trench. The springs allow
the openers to float down into depressions and up over
obstructions.
Each opener spring can be adjusted for down pressure.
This is useful when planting in tractor tire tracks.
“W”
If coulter depth is altered for a row, the spring
pre-compression needs to be changed to compensate
for the change in row unit operating height.
Refer to Figure 34 and Figure 35
To adjust the pressure, remove “W” clip at bottom of
spring. Place “W” clip in a higher hole in spring rod for
more pressure or in a lower hole for less pressure.
Use this adjustment only for a few rows, typically in tire
tracks.
Do not set row force higher on all rows. Instead use
coulter adjustments (page 29) and frame weight
adjustments (page 28).

Disc Blade Adjustments
Raise drill and block it up or lock it up.
Opener Disc Spacing
Sharp Object Hazard:
Be careful working around and handling disc blades. Wear
gloves. Edges of both new and well-worn blades can be sharp.
Opener disc angle and stagger is not adjustable, but
disc-to-disc spacing is, and may need attention as discs
experience normal wear. Spacers must be reset when
blades are replaced.
Refer to Figure 36
The ideal spacing causes the blades to be in contact for
about one inch. If you insert two pieces of paper between
the blades, the gap between them should be
0 to 1.75 in. (0 to 4.4 cm)
If the blades do not touch, they should at least be close
enough so that a business card encounters some friction
when passing between them.
Figure 36
Checking Disc Contact
26451
If the contact region is significantly larger or the gap too
wide, it needs to be adjusted by moving one or more
spacer washers. If the contact region varies with blade
rotation, one or both blades is likely bent and in need of
replacement. If removing all spacers cannot bring the
blades into contact, they are worn out and need
replacing.
Adjusting Disc Contact

Refer to Figure 37
1. Remove the bolt 1 retaining the opener disc on one
side. Carefully remove the disc, noting how many
spacers 2 are outside the disc and inside the disc.
Do not lose the hub components and dust cap 3 .

Note: It is not necessary to remove the hub flange or
bearing for this adjustment.
2. To reduce the spacing between the discs (the normal
case), move one spacer washer 1 from the inside to
the outside of the disc. It may be necessary to
loosen the scraper (page 34) to reduce disc-to-disc
spacing.

Seed Firmer Adjustments
Standard 05/06 Series row units include a seed flap.
An optional Seed-Lok® or Keeton® seed firmer may be
ordered separately.
The seed flap requires no adjustment, but may need to
be replaced if worn, and may need to be shortened if an
optional seed firmer is added after initial delivery. See
also “Seed Flap Replacement” on page 41.
Sharp Object Hazard:
Use caution when making adjustments in this area. Row unit
disc blades may be sharp. To adjust the Keeton® Seed Firmer,
lower the drill until the discs of the row units are resting on the
ground.
Seed-Lok® Lock-Up (Option)
Optional Seed-Lok® firming wheels provide additional
seed-to-soil contact. The wheels are spring loaded and
do not require adjusting. In some wet and sticky
conditions the wheels may accumulate soil. To avoid
problems associated with this, you can lock-up the
firmers.

Keeton® Seed Firmer Adjustment (Option)
The optional Keeton® Seed Firmer is an engineered
polymer shape that slides down the seed trench. It traps
seeds as they exit the seed tube and firms them into the
bottom of the furrow “V”.
Refer to Figure 40
The Firmer is provided with a preset tension which is
recommended for using the first year. The tension
screw 1 can be tightened in subsequent years according
to your needs. Firmers should provide just enough
tension to push seeds to the bottom of the trench.

Refer to Figure 41
On a drill with the Small Seeds option, deeper seed
placement may be achieved by rotating the seed tube
to face forward.

This orientation is suggested only if the seed firmer is a
seed flap. If a Keeton® or Seed-Lok® is present, seed
falls on the firmer and may be scattered rather than
placed deeper.

Opener Depth (Press Wheel Height)
A press wheel attached to each opener body controls
seeding depth 1 . To maintain consistent depth, the
relationship between the bottom of the opener discs and
press wheel is fixed upwardly by an adjustable stop on
each opener.
F
2
B
The press wheels also close the seed trench and gently
press soil over seed. To provide consistent soil firming,
press wheels are free to move down from normal
operating position. This maintains pressing action even if
opener discs encounter obstructions or hard soil.
To adjust, first raise openers slightly, then lift and slide
T handles 2 on top of openers Adjust all press wheels to
the same height.
• Each increment of the handle adjusts the seeding
depth by approximately 1⁄8 in. (6.3 mm). The range is
approximately 0 to 31⁄2 in. (0-89 mm) seeding depth.
• For more shallow seeding, slide T handles forward F
toward implement.
• For deeper seeding, slide T handles backward B
away from implement.
If moving the T handle backward doesn’t cause the
opener to achieve desired depth, adjust the opener
frame down-force (page 32).

Maintenance and Lubrication
Maintenance
Proper servicing and maintenance is the key to long
implement life. With careful and systematic inspection,
you can avoid costly maintenance, downtime and repair.
Always turn off and remove the tractor key before making
any adjustments or performing any maintenance.
Crushing Hazard:
Always have frame sufficiently blocked up when working on,
and particularly under implement. You may be severely injured
or killed by being crushed under a falling implement.
High Pressure Fluid Hazard:
Check all hydraulic lines and fittings before applying pressure.
Use paper or cardboard, not body parts, and wear heavy
gloves to check for suspected leaks. Escaping fluid under
pressure can have sufficient pressure to penetrate the skin.
Fluid escaping from a very small hole can be almost invisible.
If an accident occurs, seek immediate medical attention from a
physician familiar with this type of injury.
After using drill for several hours, check all bolts to be
sure they are tight.
1. Securely block drill before working on it.
2. Lubricate areas listed under “Lubrication and
Scheduled Maintenance” on page 44.
3. Clean any fittings that do not take grease.
4. Inflate tires as specified on “Tire Pressures” on
page 54.
5. Inspect hydraulic hoses for cuts, cracks and aging.
Check fittings for evidence of leaks.
6. Replace any worn, damaged or illegible safety
decals. Order new decals from your Land Pride
dealer. See “Safety Decals” on page 5.

Bleeding Hydraulics
Check that tractor hydraulic reservoir is full.
The drill lifting system is equipped with re-phasing type
hydraulic cylinders that require a special procedure for
bleeding air from the hydraulic circuits. Read and follow
this procedure carefully. Re-phasing type cylinders will
not function properly with air in hydraulic circuit.
1. Check hydraulic fluid in tractor reservoir and fill
reservoir to proper level. Drill-system capacity is
about 1 gallon (4.5 liters). Add fluid to system as
needed. A low reservoir level may draw air back into
the system, causing jerky or uneven cylinder
movements.
2. With drill attached to tractor, jack drill up and support
frame at ends near gauge wheels.
3. With drill raised and supported, un-pin cylinders at
both gauge wheel arms and frame. Turn cylinders
rod end up. Wire or otherwise safely support rod
ends higher than base ends.
High Pressure Fluid Hazard:
Escaping fluid under pressure can have sufficient pressure to
penetrate the skin. Check all hydraulic lines and fittings before
applying pressure. Fluid escaping from a very small hole can
be almost invisible. Use paper or cardboard, not body parts,
and wear heavy gloves to check for suspected leaks. If an
accident occurs, seek immediate medical assistance from a
physician familiar with this type of injury.
Note: In order to prevent trapped air pockets, rod end
must be higher than any other part of cylinder
during bleeding operation.
Note: After the drill is raised, a slight settling will occur
due to the action of the re-phasing cylinders.
4. With tractor engine idling, engage tractor hydraulics
to extend cylinder rods. When cylinder rods are
completely extended, hold remote lever on for one
minute.
5. Retract cylinders. Extend cylinders again and hold
remote lever on for one more minute. Repeat this
step two more times to completely bleed system.
6. Re-pin cylinders to drill frame and gauge wheel arm
with transport cylinder locks in place. If any air still is
trapped in either cylinder, the cylinder will have a
spongy, erratic movement and drill will not raise
evenly. If necessary, repeat bleeding process.
7. Refill tractor hydraulic fluid reservoir to its proper
level.

Chain Maintenance
Initially check the drive chains after the first 10 hours of
drill use. The slack of new chains tends to increase
during the first few hours of operation due to seating.
Thereafter, check the chains every 100 hours.
1
Lubricate chains any time there is a chance of moisture,
and when being stored at the end of the planting season.
2
Chain Slack
Refer to Figure 47, which, for clarity, greatly exaggerates
slack, and omits the idlers.
1. Measure the span 1 for allowable slack:
Locate the longest span of each chain (usually the
span which does not run through the idlers).
2. Determine the ideal slack:
Long chains (over 36 inches / 91 cm):
1⁄ in. per ft (21 mm/m)
4
Vertical short chains:
1⁄ in. per ft (21 mm/m)

3. Measure the current slack 2 :
Acting at a right angle to the chain span at the centre
of the span, deflect the chain in both directions. The
slack is the distance of the movement.
4. Adjust the idlers for ideal slack.
Whenever mounting a chain, make sure the clip at the
removable link is oriented to minimize snags.
Refer to Figure 48 (arrow shows chain direction)
Install clip with open end facing away from direction of
chain travel (shown by gray or striped arrows in chain
routing diagrams).
Gearbox Maintenance
The gearbox is lubricated and sealed at the factory.
Under normal conditions, it does not require
maintenance or lubrication.
If the gearbox has been opened for repair, repack all
