Important Safety Information
Listed below are common practices that may or may not be applicable to the products
described in this manual.
2
Use A Safety Chain
Transport Safely
 A safety chain will help control
drawn machinery should it
separate from the tractor drawbar.
 Use a chain with the strength
rating equal to or greater than the
gross weight of the towed
implement.
 Attach the chain to the tractor
drawbar support or other specified
anchor location. Allow only
enough slack in the chain to
permit turning.
 Always hitch the implement to the
machine towing it. Do not use the
safety chain to tow the implement.
 Comply with federal, state, and
local laws.
 Use towing vehicle and trailer of
adequate size and capacity. Secure
equipment towed on a trailer with
tie downs and chains.
 Sudden braking can cause a towed
trailer to swerve and upset. Reduce
speed if towed trailer is not
equipped with brakes.
 Avoid contact with any over head
utility lines or electrically charged
conductors.
 Always drive with load on end of
loader arms low to the ground.
 Always drive straight up and down
steep inclines with heavy end of a
tractor with loader attachment on
the “uphill” side.
Tire Safety
Practice Safe Maintenance
 Tire changing
can be
dangerous
and must be
performed by
trained personnel using the
correct tools and equipment.
 Always properly match the wheel
size to the properly sized tire.
 Always maintain correct tire
pressure. Do not inflate tires
above recommended pressures
shown in the Operator’s Manual.
 When inflating tires, use a clip-on
chuck and extension hose long
enough to allow you to stand to
one side and NOT in front of or
over the tire assembly. Use a
safety cage if available.
 Securely support the implement
when changing a wheel.
 When removing and installing
wheels, use wheel handling
equipment adequate for the
weight involved.
 Make sure wheel bolts have been
tightened to the specified torque.
 Understand procedure before doing
work. Refer to the Operator’s
Manual for additional information.
 Work on a level surface in a clean
dry area that is well-lit.
 Lower implement to the ground and
follow all shutdown procedures
before leaving the operator’s seat to
perform maintenance.
 Do not work under any hydraulic
supported equipment. It can settle,

accidentally. If it is necessary to
work under the equipment,
securely support it with stands or
suitable blocking beforehand.
 Use properly grounded electrical
outlets and tools.
 Use correct tools and equipment for
the job that are in good condition.
 Allow equipment to cool before
working on it.
 Engage park brake when stopped
on an incline.
 Maximum transport speed for an
attached equipment is 20 mph. DO
NOT EXCEED. Never travel at a
speed which does not allow
adequate control of steering and
stopping. Some rough terrains
require a slower speed.
 As a guideline, use the following
maximum speed weight ratios for
attached equipment:
20 mph when weight of attached
equipment is less than or equal
to the weight of machine towing
the equipment.
10 mph when weight of attached
equipment exceeds weight of
machine towing equipment but
not more than double the weight.
 IMPORTANT: Do not tow a load
that is more than double the weight
of the vehicle towing the load.
 Disconnect battery ground cable (-)
before servicing or adjusting
electrical systems or before welding
on implement.
 Inspect all parts. Make certain
parts are in good condition &
installed properly.
 Replace parts on this implement
with genuine Land Pride parts only.
Do not alter this implement in a way
which will adversely affect its
performance.
 Do not grease or oil implement
while it is in operation.
 Remove buildup of grease, oil, or
debris.
 Always make sure any material and
waste products from the repair and
maintenance of the implement are
properly collected and disposed.
 Remove all tools and unused parts
from equipment before operation.
 Do not weld or torch on galvanized
metal as it will release toxic fumes.
9/10/20
Important Safety Information
Listed below are common practices that may or may not be applicable to the products
described in this manual.
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 the phone.
Wear Personal Protective
Equipment (PPE)
Avoid High Pressure
Fluids
 Wear protective clothing and
equipment appropriate for the job
such as safety shoes, safety
glasses, hard hat, and ear plugs.
 Clothing should fit snug without
fringes and pull strings to avoid
entanglement with moving parts.
 Prolonged exposure to loud noise
can cause hearing impairment or
hearing loss. Wear suitable
hearing protection such as
earmuffs or earplugs.
 Operating equipment safely
requires the operator’s full
attention. Avoid wearing
headphones while operating
equipment.
 Escaping fluid
under pressure can
penetrate the skin
causing serious injury.
 Relieve all residual pressure
before disconnecting hydraulic
lines or performing work on the
hydraulic system.
 Make sure all hydraulic fluid
connections are properly
tightened/torqued and all
hydraulic hoses and lines are in
good condition before applying
pressure to the system.
 Use a piece of paper or
cardboard, NOT BODY PARTS,
to check for suspected leaks.
 Wear protective gloves and
safety glasses or goggles when
working with hydraulic systems.
 DO NOT DELAY. If an accident
occurs, see a doctor familiar with
this type of injury immediately.
Any fluid injected into the skin or
eyes must be treated within a few
hours or gangrene may result.
Use Seat Belt and ROPS
Keep Riders Off
Machinery
911
Use Safety
Lights and Devices
 Slow moving tractors, and
self-propelled equipment can
create a hazard when driven on
public roads. They are difficult to
see, especially at night. Use the
Slow Moving Vehicle (SMV) sign
when on public roads.
 Flashing warning lights and turn
signals are recommended
whenever driving on public roads.
9/10/20
 Land Pride recommends the use
of a CAB or roll-over-protectivestructures (ROPS) and seat belt
in almost all power machines.
Combination of a CAB or ROPS
and seat belt will reduce the risk
of serious injury or death if the
power machine should be upset.
 If ROPS is in the locked-up
position, fasten seat belt snugly
and securely to help protect
against serious injury or death
from falling and machine overturn.
 Never carry riders on the tractor or
implement.
 Riders obstruct operator’s view
and interfere with the control of
the power machine.
 Riders can be struck by objects or
thrown from the equipment.
 Never use tractor or implement to
lift or transport riders.

Important Safety Information
Listed below are common practices that may or may not be applicable to the products
described in this manual.
Avoid crystalline Silica
(quartz) Dust
Because crystalline silica is a basic
component of sand and granite,
many activities at construction sites
produce dust containing crystalline
silica. Trenching, sawing, and boring
of material containing crystalline
silica can produce dust containing
crystalline silica particles. This dust
can cause serious injury to the
lungs (silicosis).
There are guidelines which should
be followed if crystalline silica
(quartz) is present in the dust.
4
 Be aware of and follow OSHA
(or other local, State, or Federal)
guidelines for exposure to airborne
crystalline silica.
 Know the work operations where
exposure to crystalline silica may
occur.
 Participate in air monitoring or
training programs offered by the
employer.
 Be aware of and use optional
equipment controls such as water
sprays, local exhaust ventilation,
and enclosed cabs with positive
pressure air conditioning if the
machine has such equipment.
Otherwise respirators shall be worn.
 Where respirators are required, wear
a respirator approved for protection
against crystalline silica containing
dust. Do not alter respirator in any
way. Workers who use tight-fitting
respirators can not have beards/
mustaches which interfere with the
respirator seal to the face.
Handle
Chemicals Properly
Dig Safe - Avoid
Underground Utilities
 Protective clothing should be
worn.
 Handle all chemicals with care.
 Follow instructions on container
label.
 Agricultural chemicals can be
dangerous. Improper use can
seriously injure persons, animals,
plants, soil, and property.
 Inhaling smoke from any type of
chemical fire can be a serious
health hazard.
 Store or dispose of unused
chemicals as specified by the
chemical manufacturer.
 USA: Call 811
CAN: digsafecanada.ca
Always contact your local utility
companies (electrical, telephone,
gas, water, sewer, and others)
before digging so that they may
mark the location of any
underground services in the area.
 Be sure to ask how close you can
work to the marks they positioned.
 If possible, change into disposable
or washable work clothes at the
work site; shower and change into
clean clothing before leaving the
work site.
 Do not eat, drink, use tobacco
products, or apply cosmetics in
areas where there is dust containing
crystalline silica.
 Store food, drink, and personal
belongings away from the work
area.
 Wash hands and face before eating,
drinking, smoking, or applying
cosmetics after leaving the exposure
area.

Tractor Requirements
! WARNING
To avoid serious injury or death:
• Do not use a tractor that is too small. Small tractors can be
pushed around and flipped over by the weight of the
attached implement.
• Lightweight tractors with rear attached implements may
need weights added to the front to maintain steering
control. Consult your tractor Operator’s Manual to
determine proper weight requirements and maximum
weight limitations.
IMPORTANT: The lower 3-point arms must be
stabilized to prevent side-to-side movement. Most
tractors have sway blocks or adjustable chains for
this purpose.
Make certain tractor’s 3-point lifting capacity and weight
is capable of lifting and controlling the seeder under all
operating conditions. Refer to “Specifications &
Capacities” on page 73 for seeder weight.
Tractor horsepower and hitch category should be within
the range noted below. Tractors outside the horsepower
range must not be used.

Quick Hitch Compatibility
IMPORTANT: Use a quick hitch designed to lift and
transport the seeder fully loaded. Using a quick hitch
not designed to handle the seeder weight can
damage your quick hitch, seeder, and/or tractor.
The NTS Seeders are quick hitch compatible. Make sure
your quick hitch lift capacity is rated for picking up and
transporting a fully loaded seeder. Use Land Pride’s
QH20 Quick Hitch or one that is compatible.
Torque Requirements
Refer to “Torque Values Chart for Common Bolt Sizes”
on page 72 to determine correct torque values when
tightening hardware. See “Additional Torque Values” at
bottom of chart for exceptions to common torque values.
Dealer Preparations
This NTS Seeder has been mostly assembled at the

Hydraulic Plumbing For Tow Option
Refer to Figure 1-9:
! WARNING
To avoid serious injury or death:
Hydraulic fluid under high pressure can penetrate the skin
and/or eyes causing a serious injury. Wear protective gloves
and safety glasses or goggles when working with hydraulic
systems. Use a piece of cardboard or wood rather than hands
when searching for leaks. A doctor familiar with this type of
injury must treat the injury within a few hours or gangrene
may result. DO NOT DELAY.
The seeder operating/transporting height is controlled by
three re-phasing hydraulic lift cylinders (#1, #2, & #3)
which are plumbed together to operate in unison. The
seeder will not lift properly if rephasing cylinders are
plumbed incorrectly. See Figure 1-9 to verify plumbing.
Make sure couplings (#4) are attached to hydraulic lift
cylinders (#1 & #3).

Purge Hydraulic System
! DANGER
To avoid serious injury or death:
• Never remove or install a hydraulic cylinder with
hydraulics to the cylinders under pressure. The seeder will
drop suddenly. Also, air trapped in a new or repaired
cylinder can drop the seeder suddenly when raising and
lowering the unit. Either situation can damage to the seeder
and cause serious bodily injury or death.
• Do not use a park jack to support the seeder during purging
operations. The seeder can fall while purging the hydraulic
system. Instead, hook seeder to a tractor drawbar to help
stabilize the unit while purging the hydraulic system.
• Make sure implement is lowered to the ground and all
hydraulic pressure is relieved before hooking-up or
disconnecting any hydraulic lines, fittings, or cylinders.
IMPORTANT: Be sure tractor reservoir is filled
properly before operating hydraulic cylinders. If
tractor reservoir is low on hydraulic fluid, there is a
chance of drawing air into the system causing jerky
or uneven cylinder movements.
10. After two minutes have passed, cycle hydraulic
cylinders by fully retracting and extending them. End
with cylinder rods fully extended.
11. Shut tractor engine off and remove switch key.
12. Remove supports holding cylinder rods in the tipped
up position.
13. Return to the tractor and retract cylinders slowly until
cylinder rod clevises align with mounting lugs.
14. Shut tractor engine off and remove switch key.
15. Pin cylinder rods to their respective mounting lugs.
16. When all three rod ends are pinned securely, restart
tractor and engage hydraulics to lift seeder until
cylinder rods are full extended. Hold tractor lever in
the engaged position for one minute.
17. With cylinders fully extended, shut tractor engine off
and remove switch key.
18. Check and refill tractor hydraulic reservoir if needed.
1.
Hook seeder to the tractor drawbar. Refer to steps 113 under “Hook-up Pull-Type Seeder” on page 24.
Do not attach hydraulic hoses to the tractor duplex at
this time.
2. Remove park jack and store it on the seeder frame.
Refer to “Store Park Jack” on page 25.
3. With barrel end of all three hydraulic cylinders pinned
to their respective mounting lugs and all hydraulic
fittings are tight, unpin cylinder rods from their
mounting lugs.
4. Tip rod end of all three hydraulic cylinders up as
much as possible and in some fashion hold cylinders
in this position without restricting rod movement.
IMPORTANT: Attach hydraulic hoses only to tractor
hydraulics with float capabilities. Tractor hydraulics
for the seeder must be locked in float position
while lowering the seeder and while seeding,
otherwise the seeder can be damaged.
5. Attach hydraulic hoses to the tractor duplex outlet
with float capabilities.
6. With tractor started, engage hydraulics until the
hydraulic cylinder at the front of the seeder is fully
extended.
7. Disengage hydraulics, and wait one minute. This will
allow any trapped air to migrate toward the
re-phasing port.
8. Repeat steps 6 & 7 for each of the two remaining
hydraulic cylinders.
9. Engage hydraulics again and hold engaged for two
full minutes.

! DANGER
To avoid serious injury or death:
• All guards and shields must be installed and in good
working condition. Loose clothing caught on rotating
components can pull a person into the machinery. Hands
and other body extremities can become entangled in the
machinery.
• Do not allow anyone near the tractor or implement while
operating. Stop operation if bystanders are too close. They
can be hit by flying projectiles, become entangled in the
equipment, or ran over.
• Always secure equipment with solid, non-concrete supports
before working under it. Never go under equipment
supported by concrete blocks or hydraulics. Concrete can
break, hydraulic lines can burst, and/or hydraulic controls
can be actuated even when power to hydraulics is off.
! WARNING
To avoid serious injury or death:
• Allow only persons to operate this implement who have
fully read and comprehended this manual, who have been
properly trained in the safe operation of this implement, and
who are age 16 or older. Serious injury or death can result
from the inability to read, understand, and follow
instructions provided in this manual.
• Operate only power machines equipped with a certified
Roll-Over Protective Structure (ROPS) and seat belt. Keep
folding ROPS in the “locked up” position when
appropriate. If ROPS is in the locked up position, fasten seat
belt snugly and securely to help protect against serious
injury or death from falling and machine overturn.
• Always follow “Tractor Shutdown Procedure” provided in
this manual before dismounting the tractor.
• Always be aware of your footing and surroundings when
working on or around the seeder. Be especially careful while
standing on the walkway. Something as simple as a misstep
can cause a person to fall and become seriously injured.
• Perform scheduled maintenance. Check for loose
hardware, missing parts, broken parts, structural cracks,
and excessive wear. Make repairs before putting the
implement back into service.
• Never carry riders on the implement or tractor. Riders can
obstruct the operator’s view, interfere with controls, be
pinched by moving components, become entangled in
rotating components, struck by objects, thrown about, fall
off and be run over, etc.
• Do not operate and/or travel across inclines where tractor
and/or implement can rollover. Consult your tractor’s
manual for acceptable inclines the tractor is capable of
traveling across.

How the Seeder Works
73437
The following is a brief description of how your
NTS Seeder works.
The power to drive the seed cups comes from the rear
roller turning against the ground while traveling. Power is
transmitted from the rear roller through roller chains to
the seed cups. Seed is metered out of the cups at a rate
proportional to the distance traveled. This ensures that
the rate applied remains constant as ground speed is
varied.
The front rollers cultivates the soil, crush clods, press
down small stones and forms a seedbed. They can be
angled from 0 degrees (non-aggressive) to
approximately 18 degrees (very aggressive).
The condition of soil and type of vegetation will determine
front roller angle. Soil that has already been
worked will not require as aggressive an angle as hard
soil or soil with unwanted vegetation. The all-seeds drive
sprocket can be locked out to allow the seeder to be used
to work the ground without dropping seed. Grass that you
plan to seed over should have the front rollers set
at 0 degrees or at a slight angle to remove thatch.
Seeds drop in front of the rear roller to allow the roller to
firm the soil around the seeds. The rear roller assembly
floats up and down to follow field terrain.
Grass Seedbox:
Refer to Figure 2-12:
Cup metering speed can be adjusted to either a high, low,
or low range reduction by changing the position of drive
gear (#12) in the grass seeds transmission. The rate
seed falls through the grass seed cups is adjustable
using the seed rate adjustment lever located at the front
left side of the seeder. See “Grass Seed Rate
Adjustments” on page 38
Small Seeds Seedbox:
The rate seed falls through the small seeds seed cups is
adjustable using the seed rate adjustment lever located
at the front right side of the seeder. For calculating small
seed rates, see “Small Seeds Seed Rate Adjustments”
on page 46.
Native Seedbox:
The rate seed falls through the seed tray is adjustable
using the 4 speed gearbox and 4 sprockets located at the
back right side of the seeder (see Figure 6-1 on page 54).
For calculating native seed rates, refer to “Native Seed
Rate Chart” on “Native Seed Rate Adjustments” on
page 54.

Section 2: Operating Instructions
General Operating Instructions
Once you have read the Operator’s Manual, properly
attached the seeder to the tractor, ran through the
Operating Checklist, filled the box with seed, and
calibrated the unit for proper seed rate delivery, it’s time
to do some serious seeding.
Tow Package Only: Make sure hydraulic hoses are
attached to the tractor duplex outlet with factory float.
Place control lever to raise and lower the seeder in float
position while lowering the seeder and seeding seeds.
The power to drive the NTS Seeder comes from the
forward momentum of the tractor. Lock in/out drive
systems transfers that power from the ground driven rear
packer assembly to the various seedboxes through chain
driven sprockets and the grass seeds transmission. The
seed rate remains constant in direct proportion to the
distance traveled and is affected very little by actual
ground speed.
There are holes on the side of the chain drive guards for
accessing the lock in/out pins for the All Seeds Drive
System, Small Seeds Drive, and Native Seeds Drive. The
Grass Seeds Drive System uses a transmission to select
a speed range. Set the transmission in neutral to lock out
its drive system. You should lock out the All Seeds Drive
System and any seedbox that is not being used before
transporting your NTS Seeder.
To disengage the small seeds and/or grass seeds drive
system, pull out on the system lock in/out pin and rotate it
one-quarter of a turn in either direction. To engage their
drive systems, rotate the lock in/out pin until you can feel
it pop in. Do not pull out on the pin while engaging it.
You should always engage the All Seeds Drive System
when ready to start seeding. At the same time, you
should check the various seedbox drive systems to make
sure the seedboxes in use are engaged and the
seedboxes not in use are disengaged.
possible when the front rollers are set at an angle and
your ground speed is too fast. Slow your ground speed to
eliminate ridging. Re-engage the All Seeds Drive System
once you are satisfied that the proper amount of soil
opening action is being achieved.
You should already have removed any large stones or
obstacles from the area you plan to seed. Line the tractor
up for the first pass and choose a tractor gear selection
that will deliver a ground speed of approximately
3-5 mph. Lower the seeder slowly to the ground and
begin driving forward, slowly at first until you get
comfortable with what you are doing. As you approach
the end of the pass you are seeding, slow down and
come to a stop while simultaneously raising the seeder
off of the ground. With the seeder raised, line up for your
next pass and repeat the process. Finish seeding by
making back and forth passes across the turnaround
areas.
If you expect to develop a uniform seeding pattern, look
back often and avoid making turns with your seeder on
the ground. The more experienced you become the
better you will get at developing beautiful seed plots and
beautiful lawns.
Whenever you are done seeding always clean the seeder
out and perform all maintenance prescribed in the
Operator’s Manual. Never leave seed stored in the
hopper for prolonged periods. Never dismount your
tractor without first coming to a full stop, turning off the
tractor, and setting the park brake. Never allow riders on
the tractor when working with any rear mounted
implement installed.
With a little practice you should get very good at
developing lush green stands of grass with your Land
Pride NTS Seeder.
The front spiked rollers open up the soil profile as they
pass over areas to be seeded. The more the front rollers
are angled, the more aggressive the cultivating action will
be. Seed is then delivered at the precise predetermined
rate through the wind guarded seed drop area between
the front and rear rollers. The rear roller then presses
seed into firm contact with the soil to promote a superbly
high germination rate. Seeding should not be attempted
in wet or muddy conditions.
Now that you understand how it works, it is time to begin
seeding. You may want to make a few passes with the All
Seeds Drive System locked out just to make sure your
front rollers are adjusted to the proper angle, and to
determine correct ground speed for cultivating the soil
profile to your expectations. Ridging of loose soil is

The grass seedbox can operate using any one of its three
drive speed ranges to accommodate different grass seed
sizes and dispersal rates. They are high range, low
range, and low range reduction. The Low Range
Reduction speed is good for seeding food plots to drawin wild life animals. See “Grass Seeds Transmission”
on page 32 for detailed operating instructions.
Use the “English Seed Rate Charts” beginning on
page 40 or “Metric Seed Rate Charts” beginning on
page 43 to determine which speed range is correct for
your specific grass seed.
Grass Seedbox Cup Gate Setting
Refer to Figure 4-1:
Each seed cup is equipped with a four-position gate. The
highest gate handle position shown is for smaller seeds,
the second and third positions are for larger seeds. The
forth position (handle rotated fully down below the bottom
tab) sets the gate at wide open to allow complete cleanout of seed cup.
Seed rate charts are based on the gate handle being set
in the highest position. Typically, most seeds will use the
highest gate handle position. If using larger seed and the
seed is not discharging properly, try using one of the
other two gate handle positions.

to the cup setting may be needed to compensate.
We recommend that you test and adjust your seeder
using the calibration procedures listed below to help
ensure an accurate seeding rate.
1.
38
Attach seed rate crank to the all seeds drive sprocket.
Refer to “Seed Rate Crank Instructions” on
page 39.

6. Crank rear roller clockwise the number of rotations
noted in the table above. Be sure to check the three
feed cups to make sure each cup has plenty of seed
coming into it.
7. Weigh the seed which has been metered out and
divide that weight by three to get the number of
pounds or kilograms per seed cup.
NOTE: If total weight for 3 seed cups is in
ounces, divide that weight by 48 instead of 3.
8. Next, multiply number of pounds or kilograms per
seed cup by the number of seed cups on the grass
seeds seedbox to arrive at weight “A”.
9. If Weight “A” is calculated based on:
1/10 acre, then “A” x 10 = lbs/acre
1000 sq ft, then “A” x 43.56 = lbs/acre
1000 sq ft, then “A” x 1 = lbs/1000 sq ft
1/20 hectare, then “A” x 20 = kgs/hectare
100 sq meters, then “A” x 100 = kgs/hectare
100 sq meters, then “A” x 10 = kgs/1000 sq m
NOTE: Field conditions will affect seeding rates.
Check amount of seed being used by noting size of
area being seeded, amount of seed added to the
seeder, and level of seed in the seedbox.
Minor adjustments to the seed rate adjustment lever
may be necessary if the seeder is seeding more or
less seed than desired.
10. If calculated grass seed rate is different than the
suggested settings in the charts, then increase or
decrease the seed cup adjustment lever shown in
Figure 4-2.
11. Repeat calibration procedure if seed cup adjustment
lever position was moved in the step above.
12. Remove and store seed rate crank. For detailed
instructions, refer to “Store Seed Rate Crank” on
page 39.

Adjustment Lever (Cup Setting)
DO NOT operate seeder with
adjustment lever set on 0.
2. Partition off three of the seed discharge openings
located inside the small seeds seedbox.
3. Pour seed over the three discharge openings. Do not
allow any seed to reach any of the other openings.
4. Pull seed tubes out of the three seed cup drops.
5. Crank rear roller to make sure drive system is
working properly and that the feed cups are free from
foreign matter.
6. Place a container under the three seed tubes to
gather seed as it is metered.

Small Seeds Seed Rate Adjustments
Refer to Figure 5-1:
IMPORTANT: Never operate small seeds seedbox
with seed rate adjustment lever set at 0. Always
disengage lock in/out pin (#3) shown in Figure 2-13
on page 33 to stop seed cups from turning. Allowing
any of the seed cups to turn with the adjustment
lever set at 0 will damage the cups.
NOTE: Before filling the small seeds seedbox,
make sure all seed cups will fully close when moving
seed rate adjustment lever to 0. Any seed cup that
will not fully close will discharge seeds at a higher
rate. See “Small Seeds Zero Adjustment Set-up”
on page 15 for detailed instructions.
1.
Use English charts on page 47 and Metric charts on
page 50 to help determine seeding rate.
2. Move small seeds seed rate adjustment lever to cup
setting number obtained in the seed rate charts. For
best results, first move adjustment lever all the way to
the left and then to the desired setting. Increase
setting if seed is lighter than average. Decrease
setting if seed is heavier than average.
3. Refer to Figure 2-13 on page 33: Engage small
seeds with lock in/out pin (#3). Disengage native
seeds lock in/out pin (#2) and set grass seeds
transmission in neutral. Refer to “Grass Seeds
Transmission” on page 32 .
4. Continue with “Calibrate Small Seeds Dispersal”
below.
Calibrate Small Seeds Dispersal
NOTE: Seeding rates will vary greatly with variations
in seed size, seed treatment, weight of seed, soil
surface condition, and rear roller slippage. We
recommend that you test and adjust your seeder
using the calibration procedures listed below to help
ensure an accurate seeding rate.
1.
46
Attach seed rate crank to the all seeds drive sprocket.
Refer to “Seed Rate Crank Instructions” on
page 39.

7.
Crank rear roller the number of rotations noted in the
table above. Check the three cups to make sure each
cup has plenty of seed coming into it.
8. Weigh the seed which has been metered out and
divide that weight by three to get the number of
pounds or kilograms per seed cup.
NOTE: If total weight for 3 seed cups is in
ounces, divide that weight by 48 instead of 3.
9. Next, multiply number of pounds or kilograms per
seed cup by the number of seed cups on the small
seeds seedbox to arrive at weight “A”.
10. If weight “A” is calculated based on:
1/10 acre, then “A” x 10 = lbs/acre
1000 sq ft, then “A” x 43.56 = lbs/acre
1000 sq ft, then “A” x 1 = lbs/1000 sq ft
1/20 hectare, then “A” x 20 = kgs/hectare
100 sq meters, then “A” x 100 = kgs/hectare
100 sq meters, then “A” x 10 = kgs/1000 sq m
11. If calculated grass seed rate is different than the
suggested settings in the charts, then increase or
decrease the seed cup adjustment lever.
NOTE: Field conditions will affect seeding rates.
Check amount of seed being used by noting size of
area being seeded, amount of seed added to the
seeder, and level of seed in the seedbox.
Minor adjustments to the seed rate adjustment lever
may be necessary if seeder is seeding more or less
seed than desired.
12. If calculated seed rate varies greatly with suggested
settings in the charts, then increase or decrease the
seed cup adjustment lever shown in Figure 5-1.
13. Repeat calibration procedure if seed cup adjustment
lever was moved in step 12 above.
14. Remove and store seed rate crank. Refer to “Store
Seed Rate Crank” on page 39.

3. Continue with “Calibrate Native Seed Dispersal”.
Calibrate Native Seed Dispersal
NOTE: Seeding rates will vary greatly with variations
in seed size, seed treatment, weight of seed, soil
surface condition, and rear roller slippage. We
recommend that you test and adjust your seeder
using the calibration procedures listed below to help
ensure an accurate seeding rate.

Native Seed Rate Adjustments
The setting should be INCREASED for lighter than
average seed and DECREASED for heavier than
average seed.
Refer to BFigure 6-1 and Native Seed Rate Chart on
page 55:
1. To adjust seed rate, first find the desired pounds/acre
or kilograms per hectare using the “Native Seed
Rate Chart” on page 55. Determine which drive
sprocket (#1, #2, #3, #4, or #5) and gearbox drive
number setting (#5) are required. If needed, change
drive sprocket (#4) and drive number setting (#5):
a. Loosen chain idler nut (#8) and remove drive
chain (#9) from drive sprocket (#4).
b. Remove linchpin (#10) and drive sprocket (#4). If
a linchpin is not provided, loosen two set screws
on drive sprocket (#4) and remove drive sprocket.
c. Replace drive sprocket (#4) with the selected
drive sprocket (#1, #2, or #3).
d. Secure drive sprocket (#4) with linchpin (#10). If
linchpin is not provided, tighten the two set screws
on the drive sprocket.
e. Reinstall drive chain (#9) and adjust chain take-up
(#11). See “Native Grass Seed Gearbox Drive
Chain #5” on page 59 for detailed instructions.
f. Set gearbox drive lever (#7) to the selected drive
number (#5) by pulling up on lock pin (#6) and
adjusting lever to the correct number.
g. Release lock pin (#6). Make sure lock pin is fully
down and lever (#7) is locked from movement.
h. Place removed sprocket (#4) on the sprocket
storage holder (#12). Secure all four unused
sprockets on the holder with linchpin (#12).
2. Refer to Figure 2-13 on page 33: Engage native
seeds with lock in/out pin (#2). If applicable,
disengage small seeds with lock in/out pin (#5) and
set grass seeds transmission shown in Figure 2-12
on page 32 to neutral.

5.
Attach seed rate crank to the all seeds drive sprocket.
See “Seed Rate Crank Instructions” on page 39.
Partition off three of the seed discharge openings
located inside the native seedbox.
Pour seed over the three discharge openings. Do not
allow any seed to reach any of the other openings.
Crank rear roller assembly to verify that the drive
system is working properly and that the discharge
openings are free from foreign matter.
Place a container under the three discharge
openings to gather all the seeds as they are metered.

6. Crank rear roller assembly the number of rotations
noted in the table above. Check the three discharge
openings to make sure each opening has plenty of
seed coming into it.
7. Weigh the seed which has been metered out and
divide that weight by three to get the number of
pounds or kilograms per discharge opening.
NOTE: If total weight for 3 seed openings is in
ounces, divide that weight by 48 instead of 3.
8. Next, multiply number of pounds or kilograms per
seed opening by the number of seed openings in the
native seedbox to arrive at weight “A”.
9. If weight “A” is calculated based on:
1/10 acre, then “A” x 10 = lbs/acre
1000 sq ft, then “A” x 43.56 = lbs/acre
1/20 hectare, then “A” x 20 = kgs/hectare
100 sq meters, then “A” x 100 = kgs/hectare
10. If calculated seed rate is different than the suggested
settings in the chart, then change gearbox drive
number and/or drive sprocket accordingly.
11. Repeat calibration procedure if the gearbox drive
number or drive sprocket was changed in step 10
above.
12. Remove and store seed rate crank. Refer to “Store
Seed Rate Crank” on page 39.

Notes:
1. List of native seeds vary from region to region. See your local county extension office for list of native seeds in your region.
2. Seeding rates vary greatly with variations in types of seeds being seeded. The seed rate chart above is based on a seed mix of
5.7# of pure live seed per 11.1# of bulk. The pure live seed mix was Big Blue -1.5#, Little Blue -.8#, Side Oats Grama -.6#,
Western Wheat Grass -1#, Switch Grass -.3#, and Indian Grass - 1.5#.
3. Factors which will affect seeding rates are: weight, size, relative humidity, and moisture content of the seed, ratio of inert material
to seed, different proportions of seed types affecting density, and ground preparation.
4. To help insure an accurate seeding rate, Land Pride recommends that you test and adjust your seeder per the seed rate
calibration procedures provided on page 54.

Roller Chain Part Numbers
Native Seeds Drive Chains
Roller chains will change pitch length as they wear. This
will cause the chains to climb on the sprockets and
increase sprocket wear. Have your Land Pride dealer
inspect chains for wear frequently. Always replace worn
roller chains when needed.

Rear Packer Roller
Refer to Figure 8-5 on page 61:
The rear packer roller assemblies should be free to float
up and down while follow the field terrain. The rear roller
wheels (#3) should turn freely. If the assembly does not
float or the roller wheels do not turn, investigate and
remove the cause.
The edges of the rear roller wheels (#3) will wear as they
slip against one another. Paint on the edges will wear off
in the first 20 hours of operation. This edge wearing
causes gaps that should be removed to prevent
accelerated rear wheel wear.
IMPORTANT: Remove gaps between the rear rollers
wheels after the first 10-20 hours of operation and as
needed thereafter to extend roller wheel life.

Hydraulic System
! WARNING
To avoid serious injury or death:
Hydraulic fluid under high pressure can penetrate the skin
and/or eyes causing a serious injury. Wear protective gloves
and safety glasses or goggles when working with hydraulic
systems. Use a piece of cardboard or wood rather than hands
when searching for leaks. A doctor familiar with this type of
injury must treat the injury within a few hours or gangrene
may result. DO NOT DELAY.
One of the most important things you can do to prevent
hydraulic system problems is to ensure your tractor's
hydraulic reservoir remains free of dirt and other
contaminations.
Use a clean cloth to wipe hose ends clean before
attaching them to your tractor. Replace tractor hydraulic
filter element at the prescribed intervals. These simple
maintenances will go a long way to prevent occurrence of
control valve and hydraulic cylinder problems.
Check for signs of damaged or worn hydraulic hoses,
fittings and cylinders before each use of the cutter.
Replace damaged components as needed. Order only
genuine Great Plains parts from your local Great Plains
dealer.
62
NTS2607, NTS2609, & NTS2611 No-Till Seeder 329-141M
Long-Term Storage
Clean, inspect, service, and make necessary repairs to
the implement when storing it for long periods and at the
end of the season. This will help to ensure the unit is
ready for field use the next time you hook-up to it.
! DANGER
To avoid serious injury or death:
• Always secure equipment with solid, non-concrete supports
before working under it. Never go under equipment
supported by concrete blocks or hydraulics. Concrete can
break, hydraulic lines can burst, and/or hydraulic controls
can be actuated even when power to hydraulics is off.
! WARNING
To avoid serious injury or death:
• Always follow “Tractor Shutdown Procedure” provided in
this manual before dismounting the tractor.
1. Be sure all seedboxes are completely cleaned before
storing. It is best to do this while still hooked to the
tractor.
a. Scoop out any large quantities of seed left in the
box. Finish by using a small broom or vacuum
sweeper.
b. Refer to Figure 8-6 on page 63: Move grass seed
rate adjustment lever all the way to the left (100) to
fully open fluted seed cups.
c. Refer to Figure 8-7 on page 64: On all grass seed
cups, lower four position door handles to the
lowest position.
d. Refer to Figure 8-8 on page 65: Move small
seeds rate adjustment lever all the way to the right
(100) to fully open fluted seed cups.
e. Run seeder over the ground to power the fluted
seed cups and to remove out-of-reach seeds.
f. Check drop tubes to make sure they are not
clogged with seeds. Clean any drop tube that may
have seeds plugged in them.
g. Make a final sweep or vacuum of the fluted seed
cups to finish the cleaning job.
h. Seasonally, rinse each seed cup thoroughly with
water spray from a garden hose. Allow seed cups
to air dry completely before putting seeder back
into service.
2. Clean off all dirt and grease. Make sure rollers are
clean of all dirt, trash, and debris.
3. Inspect seeder for loose, damaged, or worn parts
and adjust or replace if needed with genuine Land
Pride parts. Do not alter Land Pride equipment.
Altering equipment can hinder performance and/or
cause damage to the equipment.
4. Oil the square bore of the seed cup drive sprocket
hub to prevent seizing as noted under Lubrication
Points on page 67.
9/10/20
Table of Contents
Section 8: Maintenance & Lubrication
5. Lubricate all grease fittings and roller chains as noted
under Lubrication Points starting on page 67.
6. Repaint parts where paint is worn or scratched to
prevent rust. Ask your Land Pride dealer for aerosol
touch-up paint. Paint is also available in touch-up
bottles with brush, quarts, and gallon sizes by adding
TU, QT, or GL to the end of the aerosol part number.

7. Replace all damaged or missing decals.
8. Store seeder on a level, hard surface in a clean, dry
place. Inside storage will reduce maintenance and
make for a longer seeder life.
9. Follow all unhooking instructions. Refer to “Unhook
Pull-Type Seeder” on page 25.
Ordering Replacement Parts
Land Pride offers the NTS Seeder in Orange with black
highlights. When ordering Orange, the suffix number 82
must be added at the end of the part number. Black parts
can be ordered without the suffix number.
82 . . . . . . . Orange
To clean out seed, fully open gate by rotating door
handle to this position. DO NOT open cups to the
widest position with seed in the box unless complete
clean out is desired.
For example, if you are ordering a replacement part with
part number 555-555C and the existing part is Orange,
then add the suffix 82 to the end of the number to make
the part number read 555-555C82.

Benefits
Fits a wide variety of tractors. Also fits Land Pride Quick Hitch for easy one person hook-up
to tractor. Cat. I works with NTS2607 without Native Seedbox only.
Allows for easier hook-up to tractor and is adaptable to smaller tractors. Rear tires help
support seeder weight.
Provides high productivity over wide areas on flat or gently sloping terrain.
Heavier unit weight provides for better spike penetration and seed-to-soil contact.
Lift hooks on end of grass seedbox can be used with spreader bar for easy loading and
unloading of the machine.
Keeps filling to a minimum and increases productivity.
Keeps moisture and rodents out of the seedbox.
Simply moving the flute lever to the proper position allows for easy clean-out and removal
of all of the seeds in the seedbox.
Precision fit to keep water and rodents out and HD construction with integral prop support
keeps lid from slamming shut in windy conditions.
Prevents seed from being spilled out between the lid and seedbox during hopper filling.
Protects seed from blowing away and ensures uniform seed distribution across the full
width of the seeder.
Proven fluted seed cups for highly accurate seed delivery.
Prevents bridging and keeps seed flowing evenly to grass seed cups.
Aggressive paddle style agitator to keep fluffy native grass from bridging.
Helps dissipate any heat buildup from fluted area and plastic seed cup housing.
Conveniently positioned as large durable decal under the seedbox lids for handy
calibration reference.
Proper seed rate adjustment lever positioning is conveniently indicated on the seed rates
chart for ease of setting and adjustment with a high level of confidence.
Provides for smooth and quiet running with a high degree of reliability. Adjustable idlers
and slotted take-ups help keep the drive chains allow for chain take-up.
A simple and easy repositioning of the drive gear allows for three drive speeds (high, low,
and low reduction) and one neutral position for locking out the grass seeds drive.
Uses less seed. Good for seeding food plots to draw in wild life animals.
Easy and fast speed change, saves time from removing chains.
Spring loaded lock in/out pins make it easy to lock out the small seedbox and/or native
seedbox when not in use. Just pull out on lock in/out pin and turn it a quarter of a turn to
disengage individual seedbox drive. Turn lock in/out pin another quarter of a turn to
engage individual seedbox drive.
Lockout clutch protects all seed cups from damage caused by turning backwards and while
backing up with rear roller on the ground. Its spring loaded lock in/out pin makes it easy for
the operator to engage and disengage power to all seedbox drive sprockets without
engaging / disengaging individual seedbox drive sprockets.
Two 8" diameter front rollers can easily be angled from 0-18 degrees providing for more or
less aggressive dethatching action or soil cultivation and seedbed preparation.
Full length rear rollers come with cast steel and notched packer type rollers for maximum
down pressure and seed to soil contact.
The rear roller serves as the primary seed meter drive providing a very high degree of
accuracy, low maintenance costs, and long component life.
Reduces build-up of mud and debris on rollers when working in wet, sticky, or trashy soil.
LED lights are bright, long lasting, and resistant to vibration, unlike incandescent
counterparts.
Allows operator to see how many acres or hectares have been seeded.
