At Case IH, we design and manufacture every piece of
equipment with operator safety as a priority. As farm equipment
has gotten larger, the size and weight of the equipment, coupled
with the power of hydraulics and mechanical systems used to
manipulate and control machines, makes a constant awareness
of safety a foremost requirement of any operator. We also
understand that planting time places added anxiety and stress
on operators who know that the success of a full year is at stake
every time they go to the field. However, hurrying never relieves
the operator of their responsibility to operate the machine safely.
Take a few minutes to review the Operator’s Manual safety
8.Removing guards for service work is no excuse to leave
guards off during operation. Guards are intended to protect
operators and any other persons, and must remain intact
and installed as originally designed.
9.Review the Operator's Manual to identify and understand
the use of service locks prior to starting service operations.
Engage service locks for all service operations. Use

jackstands or secure blocking when working under or
around raised equipment. Never work on the planter
without securely setting and locking service and transport
locks in position and removing machine weight from the
hydraulics systems.
EARLY RISER® PLANTER PRODUCTIVITY TIPS
Safety
information before starting each year. The payback for your time
should be a safer and more successful planting season.
Do not take shortcuts, thinking that an accident takes time to
happen. Accidents can happen in seconds, too often leaving
someone plenty time to think about how the accident could have
avoided—while they heal.
General Safety Rules
1. A
lways remember that the Operator's Manual is first and
always the “go to” resource when you have questions about
how to operate your machine. The following information is a
generalized review of Safety rules. Refer to the Operator’s Manual
for complete information.
2.One of the main features of large planting equipment is the ability
to quickly move from one farm to another, using public roadways.
Take time to become familiar with the traffic laws in your locality
and how they apply to your large planting equipment.
11.When servicing ground engaging components such as opening disks
and firming points, use special care to avoid points and edges worn
sharp during use.
12.
The design of modern planters places significant load on tires. Always
keep tires inflated to the specifications published in your planter
Operator Manual. Service tires carefully, observing Operator’s Manual
instructions and rules.
13.Chemical application is often an integral part of planting. Use the
utmost care to protect yourself, other people, and the environment
from the effects of overexposure to agricultural chemicals.
14.Follow label instructions for proper chemical mixing, handling and
container disposal methods.
3. W
hen operating on public roads always use lights, flashers and
turn signals for maximum visibility. Maintain a clean and visible
Slow-Moving Vehicle sign on the rear of the machine.
15.Be familiar with safety procedures for immediate first aid should
you accidentally contact chemical substances.
4.Be a good neighbor and pull over to let traffic pass if possible to
avoid creating unnecessary delay and stress for other drivers.
16.Use the proper protective clothing and safety equipment when
handling chemicals. Don't take chances-work safe.
5.For best field performance and the most secure road transport,
make sure the weight of the implement does not exceed the
recommended towing capacity of the tractor being used. This is
especially important in areas with high traffic and hills that
increase the braking and stopping demands necessary to
maintain safe control.
17.Chemicals are supplied with Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)
that provide full information about the chemical, its effects on
exposure, and first aid needs in the event of an emergency.
Keep your MSDS file up-to-date and available for first responders
in case of emergency.
6.Do not exceed the drawbar or towing capacity of the tractor. When
transporting front-fold planters, empty seed and fertilizer boxes and
tanks whenever possible to reduce tractor drawbar load and total
planter weight.
7.When transporting equipment, maintain safe maximum travel
speeds to assure complete control, and the ability to stop in case
of emergency. Refer to tractor and planter Operator’s Manual
recommendations for maximum transport loading and weight.
18.Observe and inspect all warning decals on the machine, and replace
any decals that are damaged and unreadable.
19.Never allow the machine to be raised or lowered while service is
being performed. Numerous linkages are used to move and suspend
components. Pinch points between linkage and other parts of the
machine are inherent, and could cause injury to an unsuspecting
worker if machine movement is initiated

EARLY RISER® PLANTER PRODUCTIVITY TIPS
Service Inspection
Take Full Advantage of its Capabilities
Have you, or did someone you know purchase a new planter in the last few years and continued to use it in much the
same way as the planter it replaced? Many times operators do not fully realize and take advantage of modern features.
As a result of not fully utilizing the planter’s features, the owner may not be getting all the value from the money spent.
Many of the items suggested in this booklet can be completed by the owner when preparing for the season or the
operator when starting a new field. Other adjustments, service procedures, or repairs might be more effectively
completed by your dealer’s trained service technicians.
Maintenance Choices, Being Prepared for demanding Conditions
Ask your Case IH dealer about Customized Maintenance Inspections. It is
a proactive way to be sure your planter will operate at its best possible
performance when you need it.
Customized Maintenance Inspections include a visual and functional
inspection of your planter. They can be used as a pre-season or as a postseason tune-up.
Benefits include:
• Increased productivity
• Documented maintenance
• Less downtime during the season
• Service by Case IH-trained
technicians
• Lower operating costs
• Service with Genuine Case IH lubricants, filters, and parts
The combined advantages of Customer Maintenance Inspection services
• Improved fuel economy
should result in a lower cost of ownership and higher resale values.
Documented Service
Promotes High Resale Value
When you schedule your equipment for annual maintenance
inspection services, your Case IH dealership places annual
UPTIME Action Maintenance decals on your equipment after
each inspection, distinguishing your commitment to keep
your machines running in top condition. Not only does annual
maintenance support your productivity in the field, each decal
symbolizes completed service—which may increase the resale
value of your equipment.
Because Case IH technicians use Customized Maintenance
Inspection checklists for each inspection, you can rest assured the
service is thorough and nothing is overlooked.

EARLY RISER® PLANTER PRODUCTIVITY TIPS
Operation
Tractor/Planter Hookup
Several important factors must be considered when matching the tractor
to the planter. The Tractor/Planter Preparation section of the Operator's
Manual lists specific requirements for your planter. General factors are:
• Minimum tractor PTO horsepower
• Minimum tractor weight and balance
• Minimal number of remote hydraulic valves
• PTO compatibility with planter hydraulic pump, if equipped
• Adequate 12 volt electrical system capacity
• 3-point hitch requirements
• Tractor tread width adjustable to row spacing
Some specific details that apply to general tractor/planter compatibility
requirements include:
• Tractor horsepower and weight must be adequate to maintain control of the planter in
the field and transport situations. This is especially important when operating on hilly or
unstable soil when additional control is required.
• Planters are equipped with several hydraulic motors that require low back pressure
case drain returns to the tractor. Low pressure is defined as less than 25 PSI under
full-flow conditions. Refer to your tractor Operator's Manual for correct low-pressure
return connections for your tractor.
• A warning tag (A) on the case drain hose reminds the operator that incorrect connection
of the case drain may damage the vacuum fan motor. Motor failures due to improper
case drain connection are not covered by warranty.
• When using a hydraulic PTO pump to power planter vacuum and bulk fill fans, refer to
specific tractor installation instructions for PTO pump torque restraint kits.
• Tractor 3-point hitch adjustments should be set according to planter Operator Manual
instructions. For example, sway adjustment will vary between hitch-mounted toolbar
planters, and a drawn planter using the 3-point hitch quick coupler connection
to the tractor.
• Electrical system requirements include the standard seven-pin connector socket for
safety lighting, and to power the planter hydraulic system cooling fan, if equipped.
In addition, tractor monitor or AFS system wiring may be required, according to
installed options.
• Tractor requirements vary widely depending upon the size of planter and type of hitch
arrangement. Always refer to the Operator Manual for information pertaining specifically
to your planter.
When hookup is complete,
thoroughly inspect the routing
of all hoses and electrical
harnesses between the tractor
and planter.
• Steer the tractor/planter
combination through complete
right and left turns, raise and
lower the tractor or planter hitch
while observing routing to assure
no interference develops during
operation and maneuvering.
12
A
Leveling the planter
Planter row units must be set to operate level front-to-back when operating in the field.
• Adjustments should be made with the planter in a level area of a field prepared
for planting.
• Planter unit down-pressure adjustments should be set according to planting conditions.
• When the planter is lowered to the operating position, the toolbar should be level, and the parallel
linkage arms level between the toolbar and planter row units.
GENERAL PLANTING TIPS
EARLY RISER® PLANTER PRODUCTIVITY TIPS
Operation
Several important factors must be considered when planting. General factors are:
• Do not lower the planter to planting position while stationary. This may cause plugging at the seed shoe. Always be moving forward
when the planter is lowered to planting position.
• Dig often to check seed depth and seed spacing accuracy.
• After lowering the planter, place the frame control remote valve in float to allow the markers to float.
Check tractor hydraulic flow adjustments for each planter function run direct from the tractor (Vacuum Fan(s), Seed
Drive (if equipped), Liquid Fertilizer, & Bulk Fill) after reaching operating temperature. Do not set the flow levels to
100% and leave. Flows levels should be set just above the required amount to reduce the potential for overheating
and power consumption.
PLANTING WITH A HYDRAULIC DRIVE PLANTER
Hydraulic drive planters require different operating techniques than ground drive
planters. Follow these tips to have a successful planting season.
• Use the ‘Planter Systems’ button (v27.* software and after) to start the necessary systems
(vacuum, bulk fill, seed & liquid, plus prime the meters) to begin planting...with one button
push! It’s never been easier!
• Also utilize “Prime Control” if starting to plant with the planter in the ground and starting
at 0 mph. The planter does not automatically start planting until 1 mph of ground speed.
A planting gap could be seen, if prime control is not used.
• Maintain constant and high enough engine RPM levels to keep high quality planter operation. This
engine RPM is typically between 1800-1900 engine RPMs. See the tractor operator's manual.
• Avoid sudden changes in ground speed to keep consistent seed spacing.
• When stopping lift the planter out of the ground or use the “Master Control” button to stop the
seed drives before stopping to assure consistent seed spacing.
Please reference the “Working Operations” section of the
planter Operator's Manual for more details.

EARLY RISER® PLANTER PRODUCTIVITY TIPS
MAINTENANCE
Daily maintenance
Daily maintenance on Case IH planters is limited to a few simple lubrication
and component checks.
• Grease points should be identified by reviewing the lubrication section of your planter
Operator Manual.
• Units equipped with a PTO fan drive have a separate planter mounted oil reservoir. The
oil level should be confirmed to be at the proper level; the oil cooler checked for debris
that could impair air flow, and fan operation verified to assure proper system cooling.
• Numerous drive chains are used on planters, and should be lubricated using Case IH
chain lubricant ZAD-1.
• Check all air intake screens on vacuum or bulk hopper fan inlets.

according to Operator Manual specifications.
Verifying Planter Performance and “As Required” Maintenance
Advanced Seed Meter and Early Riser row unit maintenance is described in the Operator Manual as “as required” service functions.
• Basically, this means that units can be operated without need for specific maintenance checks as long as meter function is to standard, and seed
placement and seed furrow opener performance is satisfactory.
• The key to defining “as required” is quite simply to “get out and dig” behind the planter.
• Throughout the day, stop and open the seed trench behind the planter on varying rows to perform a full planter inspection at least once per day.
This is especially important when starting each season; or when making planter changes or adjustments.
• Maintain enough down pressure to prevent row unit bounce and potential poor seed placement.
• Look for seed trench opening disks (A, B) and firming point (C) depth. Seed depth should be checked from the press wheel impression to the
seed. Do not measure from the gauge wheel impressions, or the surface of the soil between the row unit gauge wheel tracks.
• Check seed spacing (D) and placement to confirm seed meter accuracy and setting.
• Confirm covering disk action and seed trench closure (E).
• Verify press wheel function (F).
The outcome of these inspections will determine if adjustment is necessary on meters or row units.

Advanced Seed Meter Inspection
The simple design of the Case IH Advanced Seed Meter greatly
reduces maintenance demands when compared to other
seed meters. With just a few simple steps, the meter can be
inspected and worn parts replaced to maintain the efficiency
and accuracy of the meter.
Begin by removing the seed hopper and meter from
the row unit.
• Disconnect and inspect the main vacuum hose and its
connection to the meter.
EARLY RISER® PLANTER PRODUCTIVITY TIPS
MAINTENANCE
• Three latches hold the meter cover to the meter housing.
Remove the cover and inspect the surfaces on the cover.
• Six triangular wear indicators are molded into the cover.
Inspect the indicators for wear, and replace the cover if
any indicators are worn beyond recognition.
The seed disk is manufactured with wear indicator slots
which become shallow as the disk wears.
• Replace the disk when the surface is worn to the bottom of
the slots and the slots are no longer visible.
• When replacing the disk make sure adhesive labels are
removed from the outer area of the disk at least 1.5 in. back
from the seed holes on either side of the disk. Adhesive
labels can affect singulator adjustment and may result in
variations in seed spacing.
• Also inspect the seed holes, and replace the disk if any holes
are worn out-of-round.
It is normal for seed disks to develop circular grooves as the disk
wears in and mates to the housing. Disks must always be returned
to the same meter housing for optimum life and performance.
Rotate the singulator dial to make sure the spool assembly moves freely in
its tracks.
• Remove debris with compressed air if necessary to ensure free movement.
• Do not use chemical solvents to clean the singulator.
• Check the singulator arms and spools for freedom of movement and rotation.
• The singulator spools are manufactured with a wear indicator groove “A” around the
outer edge.

MAINTENANCE
Advanced Seed Meter
Inspection (continued)
• Replace the spool when it is worn to the bottom of
the groove.
• Singulator spools are 1.17 in. diameter when new.
• Lubricate the singulator spool bearing surfaces with
dry powdered graphite.
1. Wear Groove
2. Worn Spool
Other seed meter checks:
• Check for debris in the seed meter screen and behind singulators.
• Inspect the agitator for any signs of wear, breakage or permanent distortion.
• Turn the disk rotor drive to make sure it turns freely.
• When all components are removed from the meter housing, wash the meter housing
with soap and water to remove debris.
• Use only dry powdered graphite to lubricate the singulator components.
• Clean debris from the meter brushes. The brushes will naturally become deformed in
operation, which is not a cause for replacement. Replace the brushes only if leakage
occurs from the meter housing.
• Check the drive coupler pawls to assure they rotate freely and completely to allow full
engagement and disengagement of the disk drive rotor.
Check the seed tube and sensor for signs of debris which would affect seed
movement, placement and sensing.
• Roughness in the seed tube can affect seed spacing patterns, and should be
repaired by replacing the tube.
• Check for wear at the bottom of the tube where seed enters the seed trench.
• Clean seed sensors with soap and water, or Seed Tube Cleaning Brush Part Number
346290A, available from your Case IH dealer.
16
Advanced Seed Meter Inspection (continued)
Refer to the Operator’s Manual for complete inspection
and part replacement procedures.
• A key element in achieving long life and good meter
performance is to always assure that seed disks are returned
to their original meter housings. Wear patterns will develop
during operation. If seed disks are mixed, new wear patterns
will accelerate disk wear and could result in premature
replacement. Meter performance issues may develop due to
variations in the operating fit from one row unit to another.
• Number disks and meter housings to assure disks are always
returned to the same housing.
EARLY RISER® PLANTER PRODUCTIVITY TIPS
MAINTENANCE
AccuRow
Service requirements for the AccuRow system are minimal.
The row clutches are disengaged by air pressure supplied by an
onboard compressor. Prescribed air system service such as draining
condensation from reservoir tanks and cleaning or replacement of the
air filter element will help to assure trouble-free operation.
Refer to the Operator’s Manual for specific service details. The primary
service points are:
• Lubricate the row clutches every 100 hours. Remove
the Phillips-head screw from the lube port and spray a
1 second blast of DRY SILICONE into the port.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT use petroleum-based solvents or lubricants in the clutch lube port.
• Remove the air hose, and lubricate the clutch piston with one drop of SAE
10W30, or air tool oil.
• At the end of the season remove the covers from the AccuRow clutches and blow
any accumulated dust out of the clutch with compressed air. Excessive dust
buildup in the clutch will cause it to slip under load.
• Air reservoirs should be drained daily. When operating in high humidity conditions,
more frequent service is suggested.
• Air Compressor filter element should be blown out daily or every 10 hours of
operation. Filter element should be replaced every 200 hrs or once per season.
The filter element is part number 47454058. Note: The filter intake screen should
be positioned towards the ground when re-installing the filter element cover.
Early Riser Row Unit Inspection
A walking beam suspension between the two gauge wheels and the row unit
opener frame allows one gauge wheel to pass over a rock or clod.
• Only raises the opener one half the distance to maintain a more consistent planting
depth.
• Gauge wheels are pulled by arms mounted from the front of the row unit. Wheels
move over obstructions more easily than “pushed” gauge wheels.
17
EARLY RISER® PLANTER PRODUCTIVITY TIPS
MAINTENANCE
Early Riser Row Unit Inspection (Continued)
The seed furrow is created by the Early Riser Row Unit starting with
two staggered 14-inch opener disks.
• The trailing disk follows behind and slightly to the side of the leading disk to
open the trench and move moist soil to the surface.
• Check the distance between the opener disks at the closest point. Distance between
the openers should be shimmed to 0 - 3.1 mm (0 - 1/8 in).
A
• Soil that is raised to the surface by the opening disks is held in place at the edge of
the seed furrow by grooves on the edge the gauge wheels, next to the disk.
A slight “W”-shaped formation at the bottom of the trench is made
up of loose soil.
• A firming point (A) finishes the trench by forming the soil at the bottom of the trench
into a consistent V-shape for optimum soil-to-seed contact and germination.
• The firming point should be replaced when it no longer conforms to the shape
of the 1958225C3 firming point tool, available from your Case IH dealer.
When servicing ground-engaging components, use care to
avoid injury on parts worn sharp by contact with the soil.
• Refer to the Operator’s Manual maintenance section for the proper
procedures for replacing components.
• Opener disks should be replaced when they are worn to a
13-1/2 in. diameter.
• Inspect disk scrapers.
• Scrapers are not adjustable, and should be replaced when they
are no longer able to keep disks clean in your soil and planting
conditions. Rotary scrapers are available from your parts
department.
• Disks and firming points should be replaced in sets to maintain an
even depth and soil contact characteristics, and to promote even
wear patterns.
• Check each side of the seed shoe for wear. The seed shoe helps
retain the sides of the seed trench until after the seed is dropped
into the seed trench. Replace the seed shoe if a notch is worn in
the bottom of either side of the seed shoe.
18
Checking the row unit zero setting. The zero setting should be check
when any of the following occur:
• New parts are installed on the gauge wheel and adjustment system.
• The opener disks and firming point are replaced.
• A row unit is not planting at the same depth as the others when set at the
same setting.
• During preseason preparation.
To check and adjust the zero setting:
1. Place the planter on a hard/level surface (preferably a concrete pad).
2. Lower the planter row units until the parallel links are parallel
to the ground.
3. Turn the depth control handle on the rear of the row unit until the
indicator is at ZERO.
EARLY RISER® PLANTER PRODUCTIVITY TIPS
MAINTENANCE
4. Check the clearance between the firming point and the level surface.
The correct clearance should be 0.79 mm (0.030 in.).
5. If the clearance is larger than 0.79 mm (0.030 in.), lift the planter and
insert a 1/4 x 2 3/4 in. pin in the hole of the wobble bracket.
6. Lower the planter so the parallel links are level and turn the depth
adjustment handle till the clearance of 0.79 mm (0.030 in.) is reached.
7. Loosen the scale retaining screws and move the scale align the Zero
position with the "0" on the indicator.
8. Remove the headed pin from the wobble bracket.
9. Adjust the row units to the desired depth using the depth
adjustment handle.
Check closing disks for a minimum outside diameter.
• Replace closing disks when they are worn to a diameter of
7.5 inches or are damaged.
The Pneumatic Down Pressure system has few maintenance requirements.
• Draining accumulated condensate water from the system is the primary service requirement.
• Check the following components of the system for leakage with soapy water if system leakdown is occurring:
- system pressure gauge -schrader valve
- three way valve(s)
- threaded fittings
- tubing press fittings
- pneumatic springs on row units
• On AccuRow-equipped planters with In-Cab Pneumatic Down Pressure adjustment, a common
air system is used for AccuRow and Pneumatic Down Pressure.
- AccuRow maintenance will provide necessary service
for Pneumatic Down Pressure system
Refer to the Operator’s Manual for the specific planter for complete details.
On planters with hydraulically-driven seed meters, check ground speed sensors
on the wheels for debris or missing teeth.
• Sensor “sprockets” should operate a consistent distance from the sensor of
0.040-0.160 inch while the wheel is turned, for accurate speed indications.
• Make sure speed sensor harnesses are properly routed and secured.

Bulk Hopper Inspection
Some simple checks should be performed on bulk hopper systems to assure
proper operation.
• Cover gasket condition and seal integrity
• Remove debris from the bulk seed fan screen
• Clean bulk fill inductor box
• Inspect inductor box seals
If the cover gasket does not appear to contact the cover evenly, adjustment of
the hinges and latches may be helpful in maintaining a more airtight seal.

Mini-hoppers on outer row units not staying full of seed indicate a low fan speed. This will be confirmed by low population alarms
for these row units. Increase the fan speed in 100 RPM increments until mini-hoppers remain filled to the proper level.
Seed plugging at the mini-hopper elbows may indicate a high fan speed. Seed hoses plugging also indicate a high fan speed.
Seed should fill up the bottom of the snorkel – any seed level higher than the snorkel indicates a high fan speed. Decrease the fan
speed in 100 RPM increments until mini-hoppers remain filled to the proper level.
NOTE: Additional dry powdered graphite may be necessary when using seed coated with treatments.

Bulk Fill Performance Improvement (Model Year 2002-2010)
New parts are available to improve the performance of the Model Year 20022010 bulk fill system. The result is more balanced seed delivery.
The common adjustment to address poor filling, particularly on the outer row
units, is to increase fan speed to more effectively deliver seed to the outer ends
of the planter.
• Increased fan speed may solve filling issue, but may deliver seed to inner rows
with force sufficient to compact the seed in the hopper, resulting in bridging.
• Seed tube standpipes on all rows serve as a decelerator to slow seed velocity,
reducing compaction and potential bridging.
EARLY RISER® PLANTER PRODUCTIVITY TIPS
MAINTENANCE
• Inserts (A) placed in inner row mini-hoppers replace the vent screens to reduce
air flow, and seed velocity.
• Reduced air venting from center rows results in greater air flow to outer rows to
more effectively deliver seed to outer rows.

Graphite seed lubricant is recommended for all 1200 Series Early Riser
applicator on the seed tender or as the seed enters the tank.
For best coverage and performance with bulk fill, apply the 80/20
graphite/talc mix seed lubricant while filling the seed hopper either
with an applicator on the seed tender or as the seed enters the tank.
• Basic ratio is 1/8 cup per two bushels
• Use talc sparingly in humid or damp conditions (talc absorbs moisture
and may result in seed flow issues)
Refer to the planter Operator’s Manual for lubricant application rates
for new planter hoppers and first fill. Some other helpful hints assure
meter performance:
• Vacuum should be set only as high as necessary to hold seeds
to the seed disk.
• Excessive vacuum accelerates seed disk and seed meter housing wear.
• Excessive vacuum makes singulation more difficult, and requires more
oil flow and power to operate the fan. Results in increased heat in
hydraulic drive system.

• If equipped with a mechanical seed meter drive, check the
operator’s manual for the proper sprocket configuration
for the desired population. Also reference the seed disk
selection chart to be sure the proper seed disk is installed.
As stated earlier, the key to accurate seed meter adjustment
is to take the time to open the trench and check seed
placement and spacing, counting the seed population over a
specified row length.
• The table indicates the row length required to be opened to equal
1/1000th of an acre.
• Counting the seed in this distance and multiplying by 1000 will give

Early Riser Row Unit Adjustments
Mechanical Spring
Adjustment (standard)
Row unit down pressure can be adjusted to increase
or decrease force pushing the opener disks into the
soil, as required by soil conditions.
• Down pressure is changed without tools by adjusting the
location of the pressure spring pin into either of three slots.
• The planter must be raised partially to relieve pressure
on the down pressure system to make adjustments.
EARLY RISER® PLANTER PRODUCTIVITY TIPS
ADJUSTMENTS
• Adverse planting conditions such as hard or rough
soil may require high down pressure. (Front hole)
Down pressure should be set only as great as necessary
to prevent accelerated wear on the row unit groundengaging components.
• In rough conditions, adjust to the lowest possible pressure
(Rear Slot) to prevent damage and breakage due to
contact with stones and rocks.
• Reduce down pressure in soft or sandy conditions to allow
the opener to slice through the soil without pushing o
r “bulldozing” soil.
If row units bounce excessively in adverse conditions,
even with high down pressure settings:
• Reduce ground speed
• Improve seedbed preparation with additional tillage

• Test the performance in a straight headland
• Always dig for seed to check the performance
• Take note of the average speed when crossing to the
headland
• Measure the average error measured from
multiple passes (measure from last seed to
1/2 row width outside last headland row)
• Adjust the Product Delay
• Check Performance
• To increase intentional overlap, increase the ‘Start Early’
and/or ‘Stop Late’ distances
• Continue to check performance throughout the season.

Granular Chemical Application
Control weeds and pests right from the start by applying
granular treatments.
• Granular chemical hoppers hold 70 lbs. of either herbicide or insecticide, or
• 35 lbs. of each when used with a conversion divider.
For insecticide application, a front or rear insecticide spreader
puts chemical in a narrow band either before the opener or after
the press wheel.
• In-furrow hose places insecticide in the seed trench.
• Surface-apply, apply in-furrow or T-band insecticide.
• Add a closed handling lid-fill system that reduces operator exposure.
• For herbicide application, a rear-mounted herbicide spreader handles distribution over
the closed furrow. Add a herbicide windshield when banding on windy days.
• Spring-tooth incorporator to help mix soil and chemicals,
leveling and loosening soil to lessen crusting or erosion.
AFS Accu-Row Control
Get GPS-based row unit shutoff capabilities with
the AFS Accu-Row Control option. It automatically
disengages rows when you are overlapping areas of the
field that have already been planted.
• Group 1, 2, 3 or 4 rows together, depending
on configuration.
• Controlled via the AFS Pro 600 or
AFS Pro 700 display

cases where seed spacing is affected. Case IH does
not currently offer an in-furrow application system,
so third-party or owner fabricated parts are used
to place product in the seed trench. Application
equipment is often attached to the seed shoe portion
of the opener, and may affect seed placement in
either of several ways:

Seeds Being Dragged
• Seed may be dragged by the attachment.
• Residue collects on the attachment, altering
placement accuracy.
• Product residue may interfere with seed travel from

Planter monitors do not display seed placement,
so operators must dig behind the planter to verify
placement accuracy.

and Boundary Control engage and disengage
drives to minimize over-planting and
maximize yield.
Each AFS Pro 600/700 includes an
Operator’s Manual much like you receive
with any other piece of Case IH equipment.
In addition, special Quick Reference cards
are available to quickly answer the majority
of questions that arise in operation, once
the system is set up and calibrated for the
specific machine. See your dealer or www.
caseihafs.com for the quick reference cards.
Make sure the Quick Reference card goes to
the field with you in the tractor cab. Reaching
for it when a question arises will often be the
key to non-stop high-tech farming.
Three essential ingredients are necessary to
assure maximum productivity:
• Confirm that the AFS Pro 600 /700 has the
latest firmware and the firmware on the AFS Pro
600 /700 is compatible with the firmware on the
planter.
• The data card must be the appropriate size and
does not contain data from previous seasons.
Growers, Farms, Fields as well as boundaries
and guidance lines can be loaded on the card
prior to use in the AFS Pro 600 /700.
• Ensure that the GPS receiver (if used) is working
properly and is being detected by the AFS Pro
600 /700 display.
Contact your Case IH dealer if there is
uncertainty as to any of these requirements.

Preparing for Storage
Proper planter storage practices are a key element in maintaining your planter’s accuracy and efficiency. Refer to the planter
Operator’s Manual for specific steps to secure your machine for storage.
1.Fold markers and set storage locks as specified in the
Operator’s Manual. Park the planter on appropriate
storage stands.
10.Following proper procedures for handling farm chemicals,
clean granular chemical hoppers. Re-install hoppers to
their original row units.
2.Make sure tires are properly inflated.
11.Clean and lubricate the planter. Use touch-up paint
as necessary.
3.Disconnect hydraulic and electrical lines. Cover
connectors to prevent dirt contamination during storage.
4.Remove and clean seed meters. Inspect parts for wear.
Reassemble meter covers to meter housings.
5.Store seed disks on a flat surface to prevent damage.
Disks may also be stored by hanging them through
the center hole. Identify seed disks to assure they are
returned to the same meter housings when placed back
into service.
6.Completely empty and clean bulk hoppers and
seed boxes.
7.Coat exposed hydraulic cylinder rods with grease
to prevent rust.
8.Clean ground-engaging parts, and coat with grease
or Case IH TILCOAT to prevent rust during storage.
(Purchase TILCOAT from your Case IH dealer in aerosol,
part number 1132221N, or in larger bulk containers)
9.Remove drive chains and store in a container of clean oil
or diesel fuel.
12.Check ground engaging components for wear, and replace
as needed
EARLY RISER® PLANTER PRODUCTIVITY TIPS
STORAGE
13.Inspect electrical harnesses and hydraulic hoses. Make
necessary repairs to worn or damaged areas.
14.Clean and inspect the vacuum system.
15.Check and re-tighten hardware.
16.Release pressure from the AccuRow or Pneumatic Down
Pressure air systems if applicable. Open drains and
allow accumulated water to escape. Make sure the air
compressor is protected from the elements during the
storage period.
17.Remove the covers from the AccuRow clutches and blow
any accumulated dust out of the clutch with compressed
air. Excessive dust buildup in the clutch will cause it to
slip under load.
18.Lubricate AccuRow clutches. Remove the air line and
apply one drop of SAE 10W oil or air tool oil into each
cylinder and cycle clutch several times before storing.
Removing the Planter from Storage
1.Clean hydraulic hose couplers before connecting
to the tractor.
2.Make sure tires are properly inflated before moving
the planter.
3.Remove protective grease and clean exposed
cylinder rods.
4.Carefully raise the planter, making sure settling during
storage, or other closely-parked equipment does not result
in interference when raising and moving the planter.
5.Make sure seed disks are returned to matching meter
housings when re-installed.
6.Inspect the entire planter for signs of rodent or other
damage. Check hydraulic hoses and wiring harnesses for
proper routing, and tie strap as needed.
7.Re-install drive chains.
8.Lubricate all grease fittings. Do not over-grease fittings
lubricated when the unit was put in storage.
9.Cover bulk fill hopper bottom with powdered graphite
10.Cover seed disk with graphite
11.Work powdered graphite into singulator spool pins
12.Clean seed tubes and seed sensors
13.Close AccuRow or Pneumatic Down Pressure
drains if applicable.
14.Read the Operator’s Manual for both the planter
and display operation

Early Riser® Series Planter Hydraulic Requirements
Knowing the model of the tractor to be used on a Stacker, Pivot Transport or
Front Fold planter will determine which planter hydraulic drive system will
need to be installed on the planter. The charts outline the range of potential
hyd. requirements. The descriptions below the charts outline the potential
requirements with a given PTO pump. The actual flows depend on how the
planter is configured, what planter settings are (ex. Vacuum level, Bulk Fill
Speed, etc) and how much flow is required for tractor functions (ex. Steering,
etc). Typical requirements are towards the lower end of the numbers provided.
NOTE: One vacuum fan will work for up to 18 rows of Corn or Soybeans. In
other, large seed crops, one fan may not be enough for proper operation.
NOTE: The AFS Pro 600 & AFS Pro 700 display has a “Headland Auto Off”
feature that will disable the bulk fill fan when turning on the headland and will
lower the amount of oil flow the planter will require at headlands. Totals are
assuming this feature is turned “on” and the bulk fill will turn off/on when
planter is lifted/lowered.
NOTE: Automatic Overlap Control & Boundary Control will automatically
turn off hydraulic drives (seed & liquid) which will reduce the amount of oil
flow requirements at headlands

Planting with hydraulic drive planters [40054406]
Hydraulic drive planters require different operating techniques than ground drive planters. Follow these guidelines for
consistent seed spacing and population across the field, especially at the start and end of each pass.
Maintain consistent engine RPM
Engine RPM must remain high enough at all tractor speeds to provide sufficient flow to the hydraulic drives and fans
and to provide constant PTO output to the PTO pump if equipped.
Avoid using the throttle to slow the tractor when approaching the headland; this also reduces engine RPM. Downshift
to a lower gear to maintain engine RPM and decelerate the tractor.
If the throttle is used to slow a tractor with marginal hydraulic flow, vacuum fan pressure can drop so low when the
planter is raised that the seeds fall off the seed disk. With no seed on the disk to start a new pass, a significant seed
gap can be created.
Avoid sudden changes in speed
The hydraulic seed drives quickly compensate for speed changes (often within a second), but they cannot compensate
quickly enough for sudden or drastic speed changes.
When shifting gears while planting, shift one gear at a time.
Spacing between seeds temporarily increases when speed is suddenly increased; spacing temporarily decreases
when speed is suddenly decreased.
Starting to plant from a stationary position
Drive to the location where you intend to start planting and lower the planter to planting position. Turn on the fan(s),
and press the Prime button to fill an empty seed disk with seed if required. Lower the planter, and at the same time
press the Prime button while performing a normal acceleration to planting speed. Shift one gear at a time to achieve
planting speed.
If the prime feature is not used, your planter does not start planting until ground speed of 1.6 km/h (1 mph) is detected.
This may require several feet of travel before seeds are planted, depending on how rapidly the tractor accelerates.
If the seed disk is empty and the prime feature is not used to fill the disk, you may leave a 4.6 - 6.1 m (15 - 20 ft) foot
gap before normal planting occurs. Use the prime function to load the disk with seed before planting. When planting
low population crops, press the Prime button several times to completely fill the disk with seed.
Starting to plant while moving – turning on headlands
Drive to the location where you intend to start planting and lower the planter to planting position. Accelerate to planting
speed by shifting one gear at a time.
If there are seed gaps between the start of the row and first seed planted, or if seed drops on the ground prior to the
start of the row, adjust the start plant position on the Frame Cal screen.
The speed you use for setting the start plant position should be the speed you will normally use to start a new row,
which may not be the same as your planting speed. Use a consistent speed when starting a new row, and then
accelerate to your planting speed one gear at a time.
The same guideline applies to the stop plant position.
Stopping the planter
Press the Apply button in the Master Control window to turn product application off before stopping the planter in
planting position. Seed spacing is not affected since the seed drives are disengaged before any speed change occurs.
To resume planting at this location, raise and back the planter to the spot where seed was last dropped. Then use
the procedure from the previous page for starting to plant from a stationary position.
1-5
1 - GENERAL
Avoid pressing the inching pedal (clutch) and allowing the planter to roll to a stopped position. Seed spacing will
rapidly decrease, creating an accordion effect on the stand.
Use the stop plant function by raising the planter before slowing to a stopped position. When the toolbar reaches the
stop plant height, the product drives disengage. Since tractor deceleration occurs after the drives are disengaged, no
seed bunching occurs.
