Description of Machine
The Duncan Ag Vineyard Seeder is either a single
curved disc or double disc drill with dual boxes for
seed and fertilizer. The drill is carried and
operated from the three point linkage of the
tractor. The sowing depth control is achieved from
two trailing wheels with individual wheel retraction
stops. The right hand depth control wheel is also
the drive wheel for the seeder unit. A wide variety
of seeds can be sown from the seed box, from
small seeds like turnip and rape to large seeds
like peas and maize. The machine has a
calibration system for setting seeding rates prior
to operating, which is very simple and accurate to
use.
Working Principle
The gearbox, pegged seed rollers and seeder
flaps are set to give the desired seed rate. The
disc(s) create the seed bed. Seed flows down the
flexible tubes between the seeder and the coulter
casting units, and drops into the prepared seed
bed.

SAFETY - General (Continued)
Appropriate Dress
Wear close fitting clothing and avoid rings or other forms of
jewellery which could become caught in the machinery.
People with long hair must have it securely fixed and confined
close to the head.
Refer to local safety standards for protective clothing and
recommended safety equipment.
Transport This Machine Safely
Ensure that all linkage pins and security clips are fitted correctly.
With trailing machines tow with the drawbar only, as this is the
only safe towing point on the machine.
Always check that bystanders (especially children) are well clear
(front and rear) before starting and moving the tractor and the
machine.
Plan safe routes of travel, and be aware of power lines and
other roadside hazards. Take particular care when towing
implements on hillsides.
Do not ride or allow passengers on the machine.
This machine is not designed to carry passengers, and no riders
are permitted.
Road transport
On public roads,
• A speed of 40km/h must not be exceeded.
• Do not operate during the hours of darkness unless standard
lights are fitted and clearly visible. (This also applies when
visibility is limited, e.g., in foggy conditions.)
See the guidelines in the Vehicle Dimensions and Mass Rule,
issued by the Land & Transport Safety Authority.
Avoid tip-overs
Avoid holes, ditches and obstructions which may cause the
machine to tip over, especially on hillsides. Never drive near the
edge of a gully or steep embankment - it might cave in. Slow
down for hillsides, rough ground and sharp turns.

SAFETY - General (Continued)
Handle Agricultural Chemicals Safely
All farm chemicals should be stored, used, handled and
disposed of safely and in accordance with the
supplier’s/manufacturer’s recommendations.
Read the product label before using, noting any warnings
or special cautions, including any protective clothing or
equipment that may be required, ie. respirtor.
Do not eat or smoke while handling sprays, fertilisers, coated
seeds, etc. Afterwards, always wash your hands and face
before you eat, drink, smoke, or use the toilet.
Store sprays, fertilisers, coated seeds, etc. out of reach of
children and pets, and away from food and animal feeds.
Any symptoms of illness during or after using chemicals
should be treated according to the supplier’s/manufacturer’s
recommendations. If severe, call a physician or get the
patient to hospital immediately. Keep the container and/or
label for reference.
Avoid High Pressure Fluids
Avoid any contact with fluids leaking under pressure, because
the fluids can penetrate the skin surface.
Any fluid which penetrates the skin, will need to be removed
immediately by a medical expert. Seek specialist advice on
this type of injury.
Relieve the pressure before disconnecting any hydraulic or
other lines. Make all repairs and tighten all fittings before
re-connection to pressurised fluid.
Keep your hands and body away from any pinholes or high
pressure jets. Search for leaks with a piece of cardboard
instead of using your hand directly.
Safe Work Practices
All farm machinery is potentially dangerous and should be
treated with caution and respect.
Before starting the machine, ensure that all controls are placed
in neutral and that bystanders are well clear. Check that the
guards have been securely fitted and that any adjustments
have been made correctly.
Where possible, disconnect or isolate the drive mechanism to
the implement. Lower the machine onto the ground when not
in use.

Make Sure the Machine is Well Supported
When machinery is fitted with hydraulics, do not rely on the
hydraulics to support the machine. During maintenance or while
making adjustments under the machine, always lock the
hydraulics and support the machine securely. Place blocks or
other stable supports under elevated parts before working on
these.
Electrical Maintenance
Disconnect the electrical supply from the tractor before doing
any electrical maintenance.
Welding
With electronic equipment in modern tractors it is advisable to
disconnect the machine from the tractor, or at least disconnect
the alternator and battery before attempting any welding.
Use Only Genuine Spare Parts
Unauthorised modifications or non-genuine spare parts may be
hazardous and impair the safe operation and working life of the
machine.
Excess lubricants must be disposed of safely so as not to
become a hazard.

Transport
1
Raise the three point linkage as high as possible to
maximise ground clearance. Ensure ground clearance is
sufficient. Do not transport with the wheels in contact with
the ground.
2
Ensure that all linkage pins and security clips are fitted and
are secure.
3
Ensure that the jack stand has sufficient ground clearance.
Raise into the upper position if required.
4
Ensure lighting and oversize warning requirements meet
recommendations published by the local Land Transport
Authority or equivalent.
5
Maximum towing speed 40 km/hr.
For countries other than New Zeaand greater speed
restrictions may apply, please refer to your local
transport authority.
Ensure towing vehicle requirements are adequate for the
towed vehicle e.g. mass, brakes. Refer to
recommendations published by the local Land Transport
Authority or equivalent.
Lower towing speeds are recommmended on farm
roads/tracks and where one wheel is on or over a road
verge.
Operation
General Operation Guidelines
1
Use a sufficiently powerful tractor which is heavy enough
to operate the drill safely.
2
Operate the drill at a speed of 6-12 km/hr (4-8 mph).
In stoney and uneven ground conditions a lower speed is
more appropriate.
3
Check that the drill is level during calibration and while seeding.
4
Check tyre pressure before seeding. Refer page 3.
5
Double check seed rates before seeding.
6
Raise the drill out of the ground when making any turns.
7
Raise the drill out of the ground before backing up.
8
Ensure the jack stand is in the raised position.
9
After prolonged storage, check to see that all drive
mechanisms and hydraulic equipment are functioning correctly.
Check that the seed tubes are not perished or blocked.
12
Sowing Speed
Typical travel speeds when sowing range from 6-12 km/hr in
good conditions. In stoney and uneven ground conditions a
lower speed is recommended to minimise rapid part
deterioration. Sowing too fast can result in:
1 Poor contour following and uneven sowing depth.
2 Impact damage to:
a Ground engaging components.
b Bearings, housings & axles.
c Fasteners & structural components.
3 More extreme conditions will result in greater vibration
and uneven seed flow at low seeding rates.
Sowing Depth Control
The sowing depth is dependent on:
1 The wheel height in relation to the chassis.
2 Dragbar spring pre-compression.
3 Tyre pressure.
4 Ground condition i.e. hard, soft, how even.
The wheel height in relation to the chassis is controlled using
the wheel retraction stop. To adjust the wheel height;
a Lift the drill using the three point linkage sufficiently to
unload weight on the wheel.
b Loosen the M12 nyloc nuts on the clamp plate
assembly (1).
c Remove the R clip and pin (2).
d Adjust the wheel retraction stop (3).
e Refit the pin, R clip and retighten the nyloc nuts.
Refer Fig 1.
A more consistant sowing depth is acheived with minimal
dragbar deflection. With harder ground conditions more spring
pre-compression may be required. Adjust the M10 plain nuts
(1) as desired. Refer Fig 2. Note, less spring pre-compression
will allow the disc to ride over rigid obstacles, eg stones.
2
1
3
Fig 1
1
In bumpy or undulating ground conditions the drive wheel will
drop away from the wheel retraction stop to maintain seeder
drive.
Avoid sowing through dips with a rigid top link. Excessive
loads will be transferred through the linkage stays to the wheel
which may cause componentry damage. If possible use a
floating top link. When sowing over ridges the drive wheel may
loose contact with the ground temporary.
Fig 2
Disc penetration ability will improve as discs sharpen with
initial use.

Basic Calibration Procedure
Gearbox Setting Lever
To set the seed rate at the gearbox, slacken the star knob (1) by
turning counter-clockwise and push from below into the position
indicated in the Sowing Chart. Retighten the star knob firmly
(Fig 3).
1
Important
The settings shown in the Sowing Charts (kg/ha) can only serve
as reference values. Deviations may occur caused by
differences in the size, shape, density of the grain and by the
dressing agent. Therefore prior to any sowing, always carry
out calibration trials to accurately determine the actual seed
rate.
Fig 3
Using the stepless variable speed gearbox, the speed of the
metering shaft and thus the seed rate is set steplessly. The
higher the figure indicated on the scale by the setting lever the
greater the seed rate (Fig 3).
Setting Seeder Shutter Slides
The varying flow properties of seeds require different shutter
slide positions which may be found in the Sowing Chart for the
individual type of seed. This corresponds to one of the three
settings in Fig 4.

The various seed sizes require matching bottom flap clearances
below the metering wheel. The adjusting plate allows for 10
different settings. The required position for the seed type may be
found in the Sowing Chart. The control levers are located on the
LH end of the seedbox, (opposite end to the gearbox).
Number “1” corresponds to the minimum (closed) position and
“10” the maximum gap (Fig 5).

Seed Calibration
The calibration test should be done to confirm the required
seed rate and is done with the drill stationary and level.

Seed Calibration Procedures
2
1
Remove the calibration tray from the storage brackets
on the seedbox. Place the calibration tray (1) adjacent
to the seeder units (Fig 6).
2
Position all the clear plastic seed diverters (2) to
redirect the seed into the calibration tray (Fig 6).
3
Make sure all the shutters are open and set to the
position indicated in the seed charts for the particular
seed (Table 2. Page 14.
4
Check the Sowing Chart ‘Hints’ (Page 14) to see
whether to connect or disconnect the agitator shaft by
removing the lynch pins (1) during seeding (Fig 7).
5
For the test, half fill the box with seed. If this is not
possible make sure the seed is evenly distributed within
the box.
6
For setting method refer to Basic Calibration Procedure
(Page 15).
Fig 6
1
Fig 7
Note For seeds which are not covered in the Sowing
Chart (Page 14), use the figures for a seed of comparable
size and shape.
7
Place the crank handle over the hexagonal drive dog on
the gear box and turn clockwise until the seed flows
consistently from the seeders (Fig 8). To ensure
complete filling of the seed unit continue turning the
crank until the calibration tray is approximately half full
then empty into the seedbox. The drill is now ready for
calibration.

Turn the crank handle clockwise the required number of
revolutions as detailed in Table 3.
Note The Calibration is usually done for 1/80th hectare. For very
small seed rates or when using inaccurate scales (i.e. unable to
measure to the nearest gram) the calculation based on 1/20th
hectare should be used.
Hand Crank Turns for Seed Rate Calibration
The tables represented below are for arable conditions (worked
ground) and are calculated to indicate an average situation. If
there is any doubt as to the accuracy of these figures for the
conditions, it is advisable to run at least 1 of the 2 checks on the
calibration figures listed. Refer Page 18 (Recalculating the
Constant) and/or Page 19, (Wheel Slip Deviations). Check and
record which tyres are fitted to your drill, to ensure use of the
correct Hand Crank Turn and Constant figures.

Weigh the seed collected during the test in kilograms.
Scales must be accurate to 2 grams, as any error will be multiplied
by either 20 or 80, giving inaccurate calibration results.
10 Calculate the seed rate by multiplying the kgs previously
collected x 80 (1/80th ha method, refer Table 4) or x 20
(1/20th ha method, refer Table 5) depending on the
requirement. If the resultant calculation does not produce
the desired seed rate use the enclosed seed rate
calculator disc to determine the correct gearbox setting.
Refer Use of Seed Rate Calculator Page 18
Suggestion: To be on the safe side and until confidence
has been gained with the method of calibration it is
advisable to conduct a second test at the newly determined
gearbox setting.
For 1/80 Hectare (125m2) Calibration
Seed Rate = Actual Seed Collected (kg) x 80
Table 4
For 1/20 Hectare (500m2) Calibration
Seed Rate = Actual Seed Collected (kg) x 20
Table 5
11 Where a coated seed is used it is advisable to check the
calibration after 1 hectare as dressings can tend to create a
coating on the seed metering wheels thus changing the the
flowing properties of the seed which in turn alters the seed rate.

Basic Calibration Procedure (Continued)
Recalculating the Constant
It is especially important in arable situations to check the rolling circumference of the tyre when in the
cultivated area to be sown, and if necessary, to recalculate the constant and hence the number of
crank turns.
If there is a significant difference between the figure used for calculations in this manual, the constant
should be recalculated and hence the crank turns for those particular conditions.
Note: If a significant difference is found in the rolling circumference the H1 setting should also be
adjusted on the hectaremeter.
1
To recalculate the constant due to altered conditions or specific requirements use the formulae
detailed in Table 4 or 5 (Page 17).
2
To obtain the rolling circumference of the tyre:
Half fill the seed/fertiliser boxes or simulate this loading.
Mark the tyre of the drill at 900 to the ground and the
point of contact with a mark on the ground. Move
the drill forward 5 revolutions until the mark on
the tyre is again at 900 to the ground.
Measure the distance along the ground
and divide by 5 to give the rolling
circumference of the tyre.
Use of Seed Rate
Calculator
Determining the gear box
scale setting using the
calculator.
Usually the first calibration test yields a
different seed rate. However with the
value determined from the first test it is
possible to determine the correct gearbox
setting with the aid of the enclosed disc
calculator ( Fig 9). The disc calculator consists of
3 scales. An outer white scale (1) for all seed rates
above 30 kg/ha and an inner scale (2) for all seed rates
below 30 kg/ha. On the middle coloured scale (3) are all the gearbox
setting numbers to a maximum value of 100.
Setting Example (Desired Seed Rate 125kg/ha)
1
2
3
4
From the calibration procedure at a gearbox lever setting of “70”, a seed rate of 175 kg/ha
is obtained.
Turn the inner disc until the measured seed rate of 175kg/ha (A) is in line with the related
actual gearbox setting of “70”(B) (Fig 9).
Read off from the disc rule the necessary gearbox setting for the required seed rate of
125kg/ha (C). In this example the correct setting is “50” (D) (Fig 9).
To be on the safe side the new gearbox setting can be checked by another calibration test.

Fig 9
Basic Calibration Procedure

Calibration Deviations
Deviations Between the Calibration Test and the
Actual Seed Rate
The most frequent cause for changes between the calibration
test and the seed rate lies in the flowing properties of seed
during sowing. These changes in properties generally result from
reactions of the dressing agents to temperature, humidity or
abrasion. These changes will become even more obvious when
the bottom flaps are incorrectly set. If the setting of these flaps
leaves too large a gap an uncontrollable additional flow of seed
can occur during seeding; especially when assisted by the drill
bouncing, a condition not simulated while conducting the
calibration tests. For this reason the basic setting of the bottom
flaps should be checked at regular intervals.
Residues from the seed dressing on the bottom flaps and
metering wheels can also influence the flowing properties of the
seed and thus the seed rate. In such cases a balance will occur
only after a period of time and it is recommended to repeat the
calibration test to confirm the seed rate after 2-3 seedbox fillings,
nominally when the seed box is half empty.
Only then will a balance occur and the seed rate will stabilise.
Wheel Slip Deviations
It is always possible with rubber tyred drills in extreme ground
conditions to get wheel slip. Not normally a problem with cleated
type tyres in good condition, but more so in the arable situation
with the less agressive tread patterns. The result: large
differences between the calibration test and the actual sowing
rate, obviously less seed deposited than required. The number
of crank turns indicated in Table 3 is correct in most
circumstances other than those mentioned above.
To check number of crank turns for calibration
Should you require to check this in a practical way proceed as
follows:
For an area of 125m2 (1/80 Hectare), a travel distance of
69.4m, place the crank handle over the hexagonal drive dog
on the gearbox. Move the machine forward over the
measured distance, counting the number of turns of the
crank handle as you go. Using this number of crank turns
repeat the calibration.

Sowing Fine Seeds
For sowing fine seeds the Vineyard Seeder is equipped as
standard with a combined normal and fine seed “Elite” metering
wheel (1). During grain sowing and other larger varieties of seed
both the normal and fine seed metering wheels are coupled and
both rotate. In order to convert the seed drill to sow fine seed insert
the crank handle and rotate clockwise until the holes (2) of the fine
seed wheel are visible (Fig 10).
Using the tool supplied (Fig 11/1) disengage the the pin inside
the hole so that the normal metering wheel rotates freely on
the metering shaft.
At this time it would be advisable to close any shutter slides
not required for the fine seed sowing.
When seed is to be sown again using the normal metering wheel
press the pin, from the normal metering wheel side (opposite
direction to before), using the tool, back into the hole of the fine
seed wheel thus reconnecting the drive between the two.

Basic Calibration Procedure
(Continued)
Sowing Small Seeds
1
Calibration with Disconnected Agitator Shaft
The fine seed metering wheel used in Duncan Drills is especially
well suited for sowing small seeds such as rape. Due to the
intensive action caused by the agitator the seeds can adhere to
each other, or be damaged, causing irregular sowing/germination.
Therefore it is recommended that when sowing small
seeds, especially oil seeds and thin shelled seeds, the drive
to the agitator is disconnected. To do this remove the lynch
pin (1) (Fig 12).
Fig 12
Deviations between the calibrated and actual seed rate can
occur when residual dressing agent sticks to the bottom flaps
and thus slows the flow of seed. Before beginning the actual
calibration test fill the calibration trays by turning the crank
handle at a high speed around the 90 setting on the gearbox
scale. This will cause an immediate buildup of the dresssing
agent on the flaps. Return the contents of the calibration trays to
the seed box and proceed with the actual calibration. Due to the
residue buildup on the flaps your calibration will now reflect
accurately the required seed rate.
It is advisable with small seeds to use the 1/20 hectare method
for your calibration, thus cutting down on weighing errors.
Note: Remember to reconnect the agitator shaft as required for
other seeds, otherwise the consistency of seed rate will be
affected.
Caution: When resetting the metering wheels on
the seeder shaft
Care should be taken when tightening the grub screws
on the fine seed wheel (Page 20, Fig 10/3). Adjust the
grubscrew until the movement of the metering wheel just
stops, then tighten no more than 1/8 of a turn.
Do not overtighten as this can result in breakages while
operating and may render the warranty on these units void.

Basic Calibration Procedure
(Continued)
Sowing Peas
Peas having the size and shape as illustrated in
Fig 13 (e.g. White Field Peas), can be sown without
problems with all Duncan Drills with this type of
metering wheel.
The flap should be set to a gap of at least “3” on the
flap setting lever (Page 15, Fig 3).
With these peas it should not be necessary to run the
agitator shaft.
Fig 13
Peas having the size and shape as illustrated in
Fig 14 (e.g. Green or Garden Peas), tend to bridge
inside the seedbox and do not flow freely.
This multi-faceted pea requires agitation for sowing.
Fig 14
Hectaremeter Settings Setup
Refer to the installation and operation instructions supplied with
your hectaremeter kit (1) for information on installation, calibration,
operation and servicing (Fig 15).
Table 6 gives the effective working widths for the various
machines depending on the machine size and the row spacing.
The calibration procedure described in the hectaremeter
handbook involves accurately measuring the circumference of the
tyre and entering and storing this value in the meter. The effective
sowing width also needs to be entered. For measuring the tyre
circumference and obtaining the rolling circumference of the tyre
refer Recalculating the Constant (Page 18).
Note: If under certain operating conditions a calibration check
indicates a significant difference in the rolling circumference of the
tyre, the hectaremeter should be recalibrated by changing the H1
setting for the period of operation under those conditions.

Maintenance & Care - General
General Safety and Accident Prevention Advice
1
Make sure that if the tractor remains attached to the drill
that the ignition key is removed.
2
During maintenance the drill should be supported in such a
manner that if hydraulic failure was to occur the machine
would still be adequately supported.
3
Wear gloves when handling components with cutting
edges such as worn discs etc...
4
Disconnect the electrical supply from the tractor before
doing any electrical maintenance.
5
Refer to safety sections for more safety information.
General Cautionary Maintenance Advice
1
Electric Welding - With the electronic equipment in
modern tractors it is advisable to completely disconnect the
implement from the tractor, or at the very least disconnect
the alternator before attempting any welding.
2
Water Blasting - Water blasting, steam cleaning or other
pressurised cleaning processes can force dirt etc. into
undesirable places that may cause damage or rapid part
wear to items such as bearings, seals, chains, bushes etc.
Caution must be exercised.

4 Drive Cassettes
Drive cassettes (2) Fig 19 are
fully enclosed and therefore dirt
build up around the chain is less
likely. A pre-season internal
inspection of the drive cassttes
is recommended to ensure the
chain and sprockets are in good
working order. The drive
cassettes pivots should be
greased weekly to keep the plastic bushes and housings
lubricated. Regular greasing will also flush out
contaminants from the running surfaces.
5 Wheel Leg Pivots
Wheel leg pivots (2 per machine) must be greased
regularly (weekly or after 75Ha) to provide lubrication and
flush out any contaiminants.
6 Framework
The framework structure should be inspected annually for
defects, i.e., cracks in members or welded connections.
The framework should be cleaned prior to the inspection.
7 Type Pressure
The recommended tyre pressure is 2.4 bar (35 psi). Check
the tyre pressure regularly to ensure correct pressure is
maintained. Weekly checks are recommended.
8 Length of Seed/Fertiliser Tubes
These tubes can stretch over a period of time and require
checking at approximately six monthly intervals (preseaon). Shorten if necessary to avoid bends which will
restrict the flow of seed/fertiliser.

The required seed rate is controlled by both the metering
wheels and the bottom flaps. The seed flows from the seed
box into the metering wheel housings. Inside the metering
wheel housing (1) the seed is caught between the metering
wheel (2) and the bottom flap (3). The metered amount of
seed is transported by the metering wheel to the edge of
the bottom flap where it drops off into the seed guide tube
which leads to the coulter. Varying grain sizes require the
matching of the flap clearance to the different grain sizes.
This matching is done by raising or lowering the bottom
flaps by using the flap adjusting lever on the LH end of the
seed box. If larger foreign particles, e.g. stones get
between the metering wheel and the bottom flap, the
bottom flap can give way downwards. A strong return
spring (4) brings the bottom flap immediately back into the
working position.
Fig 20
The metering system should be checked every 1/2 year
or before any sowing period with an empty seed box
and empty metering housings.

2
Fig 21
Use the following procedure:
Put the bottom flap setting levers (1) (located on the LH
end of the seed boxes) in position “1” for the front box and
position “1” for the rear box. Refer Fig 21.
By turning the metering wheel shaft by hand check the
flaps are all set to a gap of 0.1 to 0.5mm (refer Fig 20).
To adjust individual flaps use the spring tensioning screw
(5) (Fig 20).
Storage
Preparing the Machine for Storage.
Locate on a dry level surface. The machine should be stored
wherever possible with the rams retracted (where fitted). The
drive chains should be lubricated with suitable roller chain
lubricant before prolonged periods of storage.
For longer term storage remove seed/fertiliser tubes from the
coulters and allow to hang without deformation. Check tube
lengths when replacing.
It is recommended that maintenance be carried out at the end
of the season, giving sufficient time to obtain spare parts
and/or carry out repairs if required.
