Description of Machine
The Duncan Enviro 3000e is a triple disc
direct drill. It has as standard two boxes for
either seed combinations or traditional seed
fertiliser mixes, with the option of one or two
extra small seed boxes. The boxes are
mounted on a heavy duty frame
accommodating large rear mounted wheels
which are hydraulically operated, allowing
adjustable sowing pressure and good
transport clearance. Both opening discs and
double discs are independently sprung,
giving good contour following ability. Sowing
depth is controlled by adjustable rubber
tyred depth wheels. The quality European type peg roller
seeder system handles all seeds from turnip and rape through
to peas and maize. The seeder drive is electric via a reduction
gearbox to the seeder shaft. Ground speed is sensed via
ground radar with seed rates controlled proportionally to
ground speed. Seeding ceases automatically when the
machine is raised into the transport position.
Working Principle
The seed box slides, seeder flaps and seeding rate are set to
give the required seed delivery. The front disc precuts the
ground surface, followed by the double disc which creates the
seed bed. Seed/fertiliser is metered down the flexible
convolute tubes from the boxes to the double disc unit and fed
into the prepared seed bed. A suitably profiled depth wheel
maintains the double discs at a predetermined depth, closing
and compacting the soil over the deposited seed.

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 40 km/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.

Transport
1
Raise the drill into the transport position and hold at the full
extent of the rams for a few seconds to allow cylinders to
rephase/equalise.
2
Important - To avoid machine damage due to drill
lowering during transport, always close the hydraulic
valves for the wheels and drawbar. Move the handles to a
position at 900 to the hydraulic line as shown in Fig 3/1.
3
Locate jack stand in transport position. Refer Fig 4.
4
Ensure lighting and oversize warning requirements meet
recommendations published by the local Land Transport
Authority or equivalent.
5
Maximum towing speed for the drill is
40 km/hr.
Fig 3
For countries other than New Zealand, 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.
Braking when towing can cause the load to jackknife. Use
extra care when towing in adverse conditions such as mud,
inclines and sharp bends.
Lower towing speeds are recommmended on farm
roads/tracks and where one wheel is on or over a road
verge.
Fig 4
6
Attach safety chains to tractor. Refer Fig 5.
Safety chains must be crossed over underneath the
coupling and attached to the towing vehicle. The
attachment points must be as close as practical to the
towing coupling and one each side.The towbar on the
towing vehicle must be rated for the towed mass. Do not
remove or replace the safety chains provided with any
other than those specified in the parts manual.
Note: The safety chains are provided with sufficient length
to cater for all towing vehicles. Safety chains must be
shortened by cutting off excess length so that if the
coupling fails the drawbar will not hit the ground.
7
If the machine is fitted with row markers or other vertical
extensions check clearance under power lines en route.
Fig 5
12
Operation
General Operation Guidelines
1
Use a sufficiently powerful tractor which is heavy enough to tow
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
Adjust the individual depth wheels to the required sowing depth.
5
Check tyre pressure before seeding. Refer Page 3.
6
Double check seed rates before seeding.
7
Do not turn with discs in the ground. When making any turns,
make sure the drill is fully raised out of the ground.
8
Raise the drill out of the ground before backing up.
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.
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 and axles.
c Fasteners & structural components.
3 More extreme conditions will result in greater vibration and
uneven seed flow at low seeding rates.
Front Coulter & Dragbar Loading
The height of the drill when in the drilling position is determined
by the laden weight and the number and size of the depth collars
on the master cylinder shaft. Refer Fig 6/1. This in turn
determines the pressure on the discs.
In very soft conditions where downward pressure may alter seed
depth, there may be a compromise between downward pressure
and total contour following abilities.
2
1
Magnetic Cut-out Sensor
To enable seeding to start and stop when coulters are lowered
into and lifted out of the ground, a magnetic cut-out sensor is
mounted on the RH wheel arm hydraulic ram. To minimise seed
wastage during raising and lowering the coulters, the sensor
should be adjusted up or down on the ram to suit the sowing
depth and ground conditions. Moving the sensor down the ram
stops the seeding later and starts the seeding earlier, and vice
versa. The sensor can be moved by slackening the metal hose
clip (Fig 6/2). It is better to experiment with the sensor position for
various depth settings to get the response required.
Fig 6
Pt. No. 67303
Issue 0806
13
Transport Position
When in the transport position the hydraulic cylinders are
fully extended. In this position the cylinders fully equalise by
allowing oil to bypass the master cylinder piston. To ensure
the cylinder rods are equally extended and to minimise
variations in sowing depth, raise the drill into the transport
position regularly to counteract the effects of oil leakage past
the piston. It is recommended to raise the drill into the
transport position when turning at headlands.
1
Coulter Penetration Depth
To create the ideal seed bed the front coulter disc should cut
approximately 20mm below the double discs. If more
undercut is required or the ground is particularly hard or the
discs have become worn, the front coulter beam can be
lowered. This is done by undoing the four bolts at each end
of the beam on the outside of the sideplates (Fig 7/1),
connecting the hydraulic hoses for the rams to the supply
and operating them until the beam is level and the discs are
at the required height. Retighten the bolts and disconnect
the hydraulic hoses.
Fig 7
The system is factory set at the highest level. When the
beam is moved down, there are three holes 20mm apart for
intermediate settings, in which an M20 bolt can be fixed as a
stop. Choose the hole to give the best position. An M20 bolt
for this purpose is stored at the top front of each of the side
plates.
Note: The front coulter blades will sharpen with initial use
and therefore penetration ability will improve.
Double Disc Sowing Depth
The penetration depth of the double discs is dependent on
two aspects.
1 The weight applied from the machine’s mass.
2 The press wheel adjustment.
If the ground is hard and the double discs are not
penetrating to the desired depth the press wheels will not be
in contact with the ground. To increase the weight applied,
refer to “Front Coulter & Dragbar Loading” (Page 13).
Where the loading applied to the double discs exceeds the
ground resistance the remaining load is transferred to the
press wheels. The running height of the press wheel in
relation to the double discs controls the sowing depth. See
“Press Wheel Adjustment” (below).
Note: Ground penetration ability will increase as the double
discs sharpen and the paint wears off.
Press Wheel Adjustment
Press wheels are used to control the seeding depth and
compact the soil after sowing to give good seed/soil contact.
To adjust the press wheel setting, reposition the jaw lock pin
in the desired notch.
14
Double Disc Scrapers
Scrapers are fitted to the rear of the double discs and
prevent soil buildup on the inside face of the disc. The
scrapers will need to be adjusted as the discs wear
(reduce in diameter). If not adjusted the scrapers will
overhang the disc edge and wear unevenly. Scrapers are
factory set in the correct initial operating position and don’t
require adjustment before drill use.
Press Wheel Scrapers
A minimum clearance of 2mm is recommended between
the scraper and the press wheel. Check the scraper
clearance on full circumference regularly as press wheels
can be eccentric. Best scraper performance may be
dependent on the ground conditions.
Level Drill
Use the drawbar ram to tilt the drill so it is sitting level. An
adjustment may be required after a short period of use
because of oil leakage.
Electric Drive
Refer to the separate Electric Drive Operating Manual.

NOTES
1. SHUTTER SLIDE
For grain, opening the shutter slide to Full gives 10-15% more flow.
2. BOTTOM FLAP
The values shown were the optimum test settings.
Decreasing the gap may cause seed damage.
Too large a gap will give intermittent flow rates.
Flaps are spring loaded to cope with small variations in seed/granule size.

Bottom Flap Settings
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).

Seed Calibration
The calibration test should be done to confirm the required
seed rate to be sown and is done with the drill stationary and
level.
Seed Calibration Procedures
1
Remove the calibration trays from the brackets on the
seedbox. Place the trays on the calibration tray brackets
below the seeders.
2
Push down all the clear plastic seed directers to redirect
the seed into the calibration trays, as in Fig 10/1.
3
Make sure all the shutters are open and set to the
position indicated in the seed chart for the seed being
sown. Refer Page 16.
4
Check the seed chart (Page 16) for hints on whether the
agitator shaft should or should not be connected. If it is
to be disconnected, remove the lynch pin (Fig 11/1).
5
For the test, half fill the box with seed. If this is not
possible make sure the seed is evenly distributed over all
seeders in the box.
6
Now refer to the calibration procedures in the Electric Drive
Operating Manual.
1
Fig 10
1
Fig 11
Note The amount of product to be dispensed during
calibration is entered when initiating the calibration
procedure (refer Electric Drive Operating Manual).
Suggested amounts are specified in Table 3, Page 16. The
greater the amount of product dispensed, the more
accurate the process.
7
To check weigh the seed, scales must be setting level
and out of any wind. Scale accuracy must be to at least
two grams.
18
Calibration Deviations
Deviations Between the Calibration Test
and the Actual Seed Rate
Changes in the flowing properties of seed during sowing often cause
changes in the relationship between the calibration test and the seed rate.
These changes in flowing properties generally result from reactions of the
dressing agents to temperature, humidity or abrasion. Such 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 flow of
additional seed can occur during sowing, especially when the drill bounces
(a condition not simulated during the calibration tests). For this reason the
basic setting of the bottom flaps should be checked at regular intervals.
When the flap handle setting is at “1”, the clearance between the metering
wheel and the flap should be set to 0.5mm. Refer Fig 21, Page 28.
Residues from the seed dressing on the bottom flaps and metering wheels
can also influence the flowing properties of seed and hence the seed rate.
In such cases a balance will occur only after a period of time, and it is
recommended that the calibration test be repeated, nominally when the
seed box is half empty, to confirm the seed rate after 2-3 seedbox fillings.
Only then will a balance occur and the seed rate stabilise.
When calibrating the speed ground sensor (radar), it is important for the
drill to be at the same angle as when sowing. A variation in position will
result in a variation between the application rate and the required rate.
Refer to the Electric Drive Operating Manual.

Sowing Fine Seeds
For sowing fine seeds the Enviro 3000e is equipped as standard
with a combined normal and fine seed “Elite” metering wheel
(Fig 12/1).
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, rotate the box
shaft clockwise until the holes of the fine seed wheel (Fig 12/2)
are visible. Using the tool supplied (Fig 13/1) 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.

Sowing Small Seed
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 as shown in Fig 14/1.
Fig 14
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. 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.
Note - Remember to reconnect the agitator shaft as required
for other seeds otherwise the consistency of seed rate will be
affected.
Sowing Peas
Fig 15
Peas having the size and shape as illustrated in Fig 15 (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. Refer Page 17, Fig 9.
With these peas it should not be necessary to run the agitator
shaft.
Peas having the size and shape as illustrated in Fig 16 (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 16
Caution - When resetting the metering wheels
on the seeder shaft
Care should be taken when tightening the grub screws
(Fig 12/3) on the fine seed wheel. 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.

Maintenance & Care
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 and on implements, it is advisable to
completely disconnect the implement from the tractor, or at
the very least disconnect the alternator before attempting
any welding. See also the electric drive manual.
2
Hydraulics - Ensure hydraulic couplings (male & female)
are clean before connecting. Dirty couplings will result in
hydraulic oil contamination, hydraulic cylinder seal
damage, and bore scores. This in turn will result in oil
leakage past the piston seals.
Filters are only fitted to the main wheel lines. If hydraulic
fittings and oil supply are not going to be kept clean, to
help prevent hydraulic cylinder damage, it is recommended
that a filter be fitted to the other lines.
3
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
Box set lifting eye profile - These profiles are provided
for easy removal of the dual boxes from the side frames.
Do not use when boxes are loaded nor to lift the
machine.

Maintenance Instructions & Hints
1
Front Coulter
Front coulter bearings are sealed and do not require
lubrication. Check discs for any lateral movement (wobble) on
a regular basis. Replace bearings if there is any movement
greater than 5mm. To ensure seal damage does not occur,
check for dirt build-up around the rod seals at the piston
heads on the beam adjusting rams.
2
Double Discs
Check that the discs are free from excessive wobble and the
bearings run smoothly. Replace any worn bearings. Check for
dirt build-up behind the rubber “V” seals on the double disc
castings. Clean right into the corner, as in Fig 20, and check
that the “V” seal bearing surface is not damaged and is free
from rust. It is recommended to replace the inner “V” seals
when the bearings are replaced. When discs wear in diameter
(to 13”), remove the flat washer (Fig 20/1, Part Number
29247) so the discs meet. Also remove the nylon washer (Fig
20/2, Part Number 22136). The double disc coulter is
equipped with two scrapers to remove sticking soil. These
scrapers have been set by the factory in such a way that they
lightly touch the discs without having a noticeable braking
effect. After extensive use of the drill a certain amount of wear
may be evident on the scrapers. The scrapers should be reset
using the adjusting bolt so they just touch the discs as
described above. Refer Fig 19/1. In some cases if a notch has
formed on either of the blades by the abrasive action of the
coulter disc, you may need to regrind the leading edge to give
optimum cleaning action or replace.
3
Both Front Coulters & Double Discs
When replacing font or double disc units on the frame, tighten
the M16x70 bolts first until the thread protrudes through the
nyloc nut by 6 - 6.5mm. Use anti-seize on M16x200 bolts. The
tightening sequence of the two M16x200 bolts alters the
position of the double discs. Measure the spacings of the
discs at the discs, NOT at the clamps. If replacing any blue
plastic bushes in the clamps or double disc castings, spray
the bores with CRC, align the blue bushes correctly and
PRESS the bushes in. Do NOT knock them in.
4
Press Wheels
Scrapers will wear, the rate being dependent on the ground
conditions. The minimum clearance is 2mm. In some
conditions a greater clearance may give better performance.
5
Main Wheels (Tyre Pressure)
The recommmended tyre pressure is 4.5 bar (65psi). Check
tyre pressure regularly to ensure the correct pressure is
maintained. Weekly checks are recommended.

Seed/Fertiliser Boxes
These tubes can stretch over a period of time and
require checking at approximately 6 monthly intervals.
Check tubes at the operating depth. 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 (Fig 21/1) the seed
is caught between the metering wheel (Fig 21/2) and
the bottom flap (Fig 21/3). 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 (Fig 21/4) brings the bottom flap
immediately back into the working position.
The metering system should be checked every
100 hectares or weekly or before any sowing period,
with an empty seed box and empty metering
housings. Use the following proceedure:
Put the bottom flap setting levers (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 22.
By turning the metering wheel shaft by hand, check
the flaps are all set to a gap of 0.1 - 0.5mm
(refer Fig 21).
To adjust individual flaps use the spring tensioning
screw (Fig 21/5).
If agitator shaft(s) do not turn freely in the box,
disassemble them and clean or replace the plastic
bearings.
Note: Maintenance Schedule (Page 25)
Where the frequency is given in terms of time of use
(e.g. weekly) or area covered (e.g.100 ha), perform the
maintenance task according to whichever occurs first.
Fig 22
Storage
Preparing the Machine for Storage.
Locate a dry level surface. The machine should be stored
wherever possible with the rams retracted.
For longer term storage remove seed/fertiliser tubes from
the coulters and allow to hang without deformation.

OPERATION
B.1
Power On Routine
When the instrument is first turned on the instrument will enter a short routine to
remind the operator of the previous setup. The set up can be changed and then
accepted by pressing the ENTER key or alternatively, the routine can be skipped
by pressing the MAIN button (Key A).
The first screen on start up is the BIN SETUP screen. See Figure 1 This screen
advises the operator which products are defined to which bin. On the screen
format shown in Figure 1 the operator can use Keys E & F to cycle through the list
of products. The application rate saved against that product will also be shown.
The letter shown in the graphic will also change to reflect the product selected.

PRODUCT SETUP screen
There is a directory of 16 products and against each of these 4 factors are
recorded. These factors are rate, step size, alarm weight and calibration factor.
The 1st line simply reminds the operator which bin the product is set for.
The 2nd line is the product name. This can be changed using the keypad, pressing
ENTER to confirm the name entered. This new name then applies to any of the
other bins that have the same product.
9
The 3rd line is the target rate for the product. This value can be changed here or
on the MAIN screen. The last entered value here or on the MAIN screen is the one
saved.
The 4th line is the step size. The step size is the percentage change of the target
sowing rate. This can be programmed here or on the screen INFO SETUP screen.
The 5th line of the display is the bin low level alarm weight. This can be
programmed here or on the INFO SETUP screen or on the ALARM SETUP screen.
The 6th line is the calibration factor for the product. This can be manually entered
here or on the INFO SETUP screen. Doing a product calibration of this product on
any bin overwrites this value irrespective of bin.
Pressing the ESC key returns to the BIN SETUP screen.
Pressing the ENTER key while showing the BIN SETUP screen accesses the RESET
TOTALS screen. See Figure 4. If Key I is pressed the instrument goes directly to
the MAIN operating screen. If Key E is then pressed a secondary screen is
displayed which enables the operator to reset either the ‘PART’ or ‘TOT’ area’s.
Select ‘PART’ or ‘TOT’ to highlight whish is to be reset and press the RESET button
(Key E). Press the ESC button (Key G) to return to the previous screen or the
ENTER button to confirm the reset. Press the MAIN button (Key A) when
complete.

B.2.2 Main screen display features
Figure 10 provides a description of various features on the MAIN screen. This is
for a 4 bin configuration but also applies to the other configurations.
The top line of the display shows the time (top left) and area cut-out status (top
right). When the drill is ‘out of work’ (lifted) a cross is shown, a tick indicates ‘in
work’ (lowered). When the drill is ‘out of work’ motor control and alarms will be
inhibited. The second line of the MAIN display advises the operator of the
product that the details below relate to. This will change when Key I is pressed.
The metering rolls will be stationary when the motors are stationary and as soon
as the motors start rotating the icon will be animated. If the motor is turned off
a cross will be show.

With the desired bin/product selected simply use the key pad to enter the desired
application rate. The digits will flash and pressing ENTER will confirm the rate
entered. Maximum is either 3 digits to 0 decimal places or 1 digit to 1 decimal
place. Resolution will be as follows 0.0 to 9.9 in 0.1 kg steps, 10 – 99 in 1 kg
steps, 100 – 999 in 5kg steps. Values programmed will be rounded to the nearest
acceptable value, i.e. 254 will be 255. It will only be possible to enter a new
application rate if the forward speed is below the minimum forward speed setting.
This rate is then saved against the specific product within the PRODUCT SETUP
screen, refer Figure 3.
When a new product rate has been entered, the MAIN screen shows the maximum
forward speed for 3 seconds or until a Key has been pressed. See Figure 13. The
maximum forward speed shown is the corresponding ground speed when the
motor is at maximum speed. This is based on the product calibration factor.

Motor speed alarm
Figure 32 shows the display when the motor is overloaded and operating above
the maximum current programmed. Refer to C.1.5.2. The automatic motor
overload alarm/shutdown procedure is based on both the amount and the duration
of the overload. If the maximum operating current is only exceeded by a small
margin, then this is permitted for a short time before the alarm is initiated and the
motor drive is shutdown. If the current immediately exceeds the threshold by a
large amount then the alarm is instantly shown and the motor drive stopped i.e. a
mechanical blockage stops the motor from rotating.
26
When the alarm is triggered the motor operation will be stopped and the only way
to continue is to fully raise the drill ‘out of work’.
This logic avoids alarm/shutdown being triggered from exceeding the programmed
maximum current value by small, short and occasional amounts i.e. during motor
start-up.
The procedure once the alarm/shutdown is initiated and the screen in Figure 32 is
shown should then be as follows:
• The screen indicates that it is the 2nd bin motor control module that has
shutdown due to overload. (Bin1 =0000, Bin 2=1000, Bin 3 =0100, Bin 4
=1100 as indicated on the rear of the motor control modules). This
overload alarm/shutdown action will be recorded on the instrument.
• Stop the drill and lift it into the transport position, the alarm/shutdown is
then automatically reset.
• Check for the cause of the overload shutdown e.g. faulty bearing, seed
bag wrapped around agitator shaft, etc.
• Assuming the problem is rectified the operator may then continue
working by lowering the drill into work.
• If the alarm re-occurs then follow the above procedure but further indepth investigation will be required to avoid future re-occurrences.

Calibration
B.6.1 Calibration Check Programme 1
There are two ways to access the calibration check programme, the first is by
pressing the following key tabs; INFO, SETUP & CAL CHECK. This will calibrate
the product in the bin which was active on the individual INFO screen. The second
is to press the MENU key tab (under the TOT key tab) and then CAL CHECK. The
only difference between these two methods of accessing the calibration
programme is that the first option only allows the calibration to be run on the bin
which was on the INFO screen whereas the second option allows the bin to be
selected on the first screen by using Key I.
The first screen of the calibration programme is shown in Figure 34. This screen
requests the operator to enter the amount of product to be dispensed. This is
done by using the key pad and pressing ENTER. The programme gives the option
to correct the amount to be dispensed. If the number entered is incorrect, use
the keypad and press ENTER. If the number was correct press ENTER to proceed
to the next screen.
Figure 34. CAL CHECK screen 1/1
The second screen is shown if Figure 35. Pressing ENTER again will start the
product dispensing. The actual amount of product dispensed is based on the
product calibration factor and the gearbox ratio. The instrument calculates the
number of motor revolutions required and then carries this out. Whilst the motor
is running the screen Figure 35 is shown with the weight accumulating.

When the system thinks it has delivered the product weight requested, the motor
stops and the amount dispensed is shown on the third screen. See Figure 36.
The product dispensed is weighed and then entered using the key pad and
29
pressing ENTER. Again the programme will give the opportunity for the figure
entered to be corrected. To proceed to the last screen, press ENTER again.

B.6.2 Calibration Check Programme 2
The programme 2 calibration is essentially the same as programme 1 however it is
activated using the priming switches mounted into the left hand side plate of the
machine.
30
The programme is initiated when the priming switch is held for ½ second and then
released. Figure 38 shows the first programme 2 calibration screen which is
accessed automatically when the priming switch is pressed. With this programme
the option of entering the weight to be dispensed is not available. The product
starts being dispensed into the calibration trays immediately.

be corrected. To proceed to the last screen, press ENTER again.
The display changes to the last screen as shown in Figure 40. This shows the old
and new calibration factors and the percentage error. Press ENTER to accept the
change or ESC to exit the programme without changing.

The disadvantage of programme 2 is that the operator is unable to programme
the amount of product to be dispensed. There two advantages of the second
programme, firstly, less walking to and from the console and secondly, two bins
can be calibrated simultaneously.
When calibrating two bins simultaneously, press the priming switch for the first
bin and release after ½ second to start product dispensing. Press and hold the
priming switch for ½ second for the second bin. The console will display the
product weight accumulating of the bin started last. When both bins are finished
dispensing, the console will display and request the weight to be entered for the
last bin finished.
The ESC key tab can be pressed at any time to return to the screen displayed
before starting the calibration programme.
B.6.3 Calibration Nudge Programme
The calibration nudge programme is accessed by pressing the following key tabs;

through the 3 factors, after the third it returns to the top of the list again. The
first factor is the ratio of the gearbox fitted to the motor. Default value is
100:1. The second factor is the maximum motor speed. This is used to
calculate the maximum forward speed that any application rate set into the
system can be achieved. The third factor is the shaft sensor pulses per
revolution. This is used to calculate the shaft speed correctly.

TEMPORARY SOLUTIONS
The following are temporary solutions which will enable the operator to complete a job
for specific electric drive system faults or damage.
Problem
Temporary Solution
Radar
Access the USER OPTIONS screen, initiate the simulated speed
and change the speed to the desired setting. Seeders will
dispense product as if the drill was travelling at the specified
speed setting. Note, the seeders will only operate while the drill is
in the working position.
Area cut-out sensor
Access the INSTUMENT SETUP screen and change the area cutout setting from ‘In Work’ to ‘Out of Work’. Seeders will dispense
seed relative to travel speed regardless of whether the drill is in
the working position or in the transport position. To stop the
seeding operation, turn the motors or the console off.
Priming switch
Initiate the calibration program procedure using the console.
Shaft confirmation
sensor
Access the ALARMS screen and turn the respective shaft sensor
setting to ‘Off”
Bin level sensor
Access the ALARMS screen and turn the respective bin level
sensor setting to ‘Off”
Blown fuse
Disconnect the fuse box, bolt the power cable ends together and
ensure exposed connection can not come into contact with tractor
parts resulting in a short circuit. The use of insulation tape is
recommended.
Motor or motor
control module (MCM)
No temporary solution is available. Replace part required.
Harness or power
cables
No temporary solution is available unless wire or connection
damage can be identified.
