Tire Pressure
Check tire pressure
Refer to Operator's Manual for proper tire pressure
Wheel Bolt/Nut Torque
Check torque for wheel bolt/nut
Refer to Operator's Manual for proper torque
specifications. Please use only torque wrench.
Transport Hub
Grease each hub
Transport wheels have grease zerk
Transport Caster
Grease each caster on main pivot
Transport caster has grease zerk
Grease each caster on walking beam pivot
Walking caster has grease zerk
Transport Caster Adjustment
Adjust the main frame casters wheels, pull
the machine forward.
Main frame casters will be adjusted to caster
firmer than wing caster wheels. Wing caster
wheels should turn freely (by hand) after
adjustment. If they do not, loosen the bolts
equally until they pivot freely. With the caster positioned (driving forward),
loosen all four jam nuts on the caster pivot
point bolts.
Tighten the two rear bolts until they are snug
ensuring left and right bolts are tensioned
equally.
Back the machine up so the caster is turned
forward (reverse the drill).
Tighten the two front bolts until they
are snug ensuring left and right bolts are
tensioned equally.
Tighten the two rear bolts until they are snug
ensuring left and right bolts are tensioned
equally.
Tighten the top jam nuts locking everything
in to place. Frame Connection and Components
Check the following:
All Frame Components
Frame Fasteners
U-bolts
Hydraulic cylinders
Lift Kit (if applicable)
Active Wing Brace (if applicable)
Packing Force Sensor (if applicable)
Check all components work at proper
hydraulic pressure and speeds
Refer to your Owners Manual for proper hydraulic
pressures
Hitch Tongue, Pintle Hitch and Pivot Pins
Inspect all hitch pins for excess wear and
stress marks
Replace any stressed or worn out components
Inspect hitch fasteners
Inspect keeper bolts

Packer Wheel and Hub
Raise openers and check for loose wheel
nuts or packer hub bolts
Spin each packer wheel and check for mud
or failed bearings
Check pneumatic packer tire air pressure
(if applicable)
Factory pressure is set at 12 psi
Zone Command Air Compressor Air Filter
Remove and clean daily in dusty conditions
A pre-filter upgrade kit can be installed for very
dusty conditions (SeedMaster part # 408890).
This pre-filter will allow the air compressor to
draw from inside the electrical panel box. Please
note this is an upgrade which can be purchased
through a SeedMaster Certified dealer
Air Compressor Air System
To test complete the following:
• Connect all wire connections
• Power on
• Check that the air compressor starts and
builds pressure
• Ensure that the air compressor shuts off
after building 105 psi
• Inspect for any leaks or air loss
Air Tank/Regulator/Return Air Filter
Drain Air Compressor air tank
Drain is located on the bottom of the air tank
Drain second valve
Valve is located at the bottom of the air regulator
Clean return air filter
Zone Command
Test disengaging and engaging arms
Manually extend the air cylinder that disengages
the Zone Command arm and engaging gear. Arm
and gear should move freely back to the engaged
position.
Test this manually by hand when the machine is
stationary. Refer to the Operators manual for all
proper Zone Command adjustments located in
the Tank Zone Command section.
Ensure air regular is set to 65 psi
Check all engaging gears are
properly aligned
Refer to the Operators manual for all proper Zone
Command adjustments located in the Tank Zone
Command section.
Drive Chain
Check the drives chains are aligned between
both common drive shaft and metering box
Check sprockets are securely fastened
Check the chain tensions are not adjusted
too tightly
Fan Inspection
Inspect all product delivery fans
Ensure fan blade is:
aligned
turns freely
free of any dirt and build up
Inspect the fan delivery lines
Ensure that each line is free of:
excess moisture
product build up
any type of obstruction
Nova Carts using high flow fans utilize
grease zerks on the main drive shaft
bearings. These grease points are outlined
in the Bulletin "High Flow Fan Service" at
seedmaster.ca

Tank and Lid Seals
Open tank lid using tractor hydraulics and
ensure lid seal is in good condition
You will see an indentation where the lid seal
contacts the lid frame
Close the lids and with fans running inspect
the tank and lids for any air loss.
All 2013 and 2014 tanks should have tank
braces installed. Contact your SeedMaster
Certified dealer regarding tank bracing.
Product Delivery Towers
Inspect tower for no blockage
Inspect for no excessive wear
Inspect no air loss from tower cap
2015-16 towers - ensure cap inserts are
correct size for the product type and are
properly installed
2012-14 towers - use plastic choke and
should be replaced with the new steel
version. More information in Bulletin
"Manifold Choke for Pre 2014 Machines"
at seedmaster.ca
Conveyor
Check that conveyor is cleaned out and any
accumulated product is removed
The clean out doors can be removed and left off
allowing moisture to drain out.
Tanks
Check that there is no product remaining in
the tanks or meters
Remove bottom clean out doors on all
meter boxes
Thoroughly clean the inside and outside of
the tanks
With clean out doors removed from the
meter boxes, remove the bottom rollers and
clean out plate on each side of the roller.
The clean out doors can remain off the meter
boxes while the tank is sitting so it does not build
up condensation inside the meters or tanks
Clean around the meter box rollers
Washing machine before storage
Use hot water, soap and thoroughly rinse
using compressed air drying all moving
components and use proper post wash
lubrication.
Storage
To lubricate, apply a generous coating of
penetrating oil such as Fluid Film to the
drive chains, sprockets and any appropriate
moving components.
Keep drill unfolded when stored for
extended period of time
Relieve all the hydraulic pressures
this includes the opener cylinders
Indoor storage is ideal.
