Important Safety Information
Look for Safety Symbol
The SAFETY ALERT SYMBOL indicates there is a
potential hazard to personal safety involved and extra
safety precaution must be taken. When you see this
symbol, be alert and carefully read the message that
follows it. In addition to design and configuration of
equipment, hazard control and accident prevention are
dependent upon the awareness, concern, prudence and
proper training of personnel involved in the operation,
transport, maintenance and storage of equipment.
Be Aware of Signal Words
Signal words designate a degree or level of hazard
seriousness.
DANGER indicates an imminently hazardous situation
which, if not avoided, will result in death or serious injury.
This signal word is limited to the most extreme situations,
typically for machine components that, for functional
purposes, cannot be guarded.
WARNING indicates a potentially hazardous situation
which, if not avoided, could result in death or serious
injury, and includes hazards that are exposed when
guards are removed. It may also be used to alert against
unsafe practices.
CAUTION indicates a potentially hazardous situation
which, if not avoided, may result in minor or moderate
injury. It may also be used to alert against unsafe
practices.
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 phone.
Be Familiar with Safety Decals
▲ Read and understand “Safety Decals” on page 6,
thoroughly.
▲ Read all instructions noted on the decals.
▲ Keep decals clean. Replace damaged, faded and illegible
decals.

Avoid High Pressure Fluids
Escaping fluid under pressure can penetrate the skin,
causing serious injury.
▲ Avoid the hazard by relieving pressure before disconnecting
hydraulic lines.
▲ 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.
▲ If an accident occurs, seek immediate medical attention
from a health care provider familiar with this type of injury.
Use A Safety Chain
▲ Use a safety chain to help control drawn machinery should
it separate from tractor drawbar.
▲ Use a chain with a strength rating equal to or greater than
the gross weight of towed machinery.
▲ Attach chain to tractor drawbar support or other specified
anchor location. Allow only enough slack in chain to permit
turning.
▲ Replace chain if any links or end fittings are broken,
stretched or damaged.
▲ Do not use safety chain for towing.
Keep Riders Off Machinery
Riders obstruct the operator’s view. Riders could be
struck by foreign objects or thrown from the machine.
▲ Never allow children to operate equipment.
▲ Keep all bystanders away from machine during operation.
Use Safety Lights and Devices
Slow-moving tractors and towed implements can create
a hazard when driven on public roads. They are difficult
to see, especially at night.
▲ Use flashing warning lights and turn signals whenever
driving on public roads.
▲ Use lights and devices provided with air cart and drill.

Check for Overhead Lines
Seed auger or drill markers contacting overhead
electrical lines can introduce lethal voltage levels on air
cart, drill and tractor frames. A person touching almost
any metal part can complete the circuit to ground,
resulting in serious injury or death. At higher voltages,
electrocution can occur without direct contact.
▲ Avoid overhead lines during seed loading, unloading and
marker operations.
Transport Machinery Safely
Maximum transport speed for air cart is 20 mph
(32 km/h). Some rough terrains require a slower speed.
Sudden braking can cause a towed load to swerve and
upset.
▲ Latch auger.
▲ Do not tow a load that weighs more than 1.5 times the
weight of the tractor.
▲ Do not exceed 20 mph (32 km/h). Never travel at a speed
which does not allow adequate control of steering and
stopping. Reduce speed if towed load is not equipped with
brakes.
▲ Comply with national, regional and local laws.
▲ Follow your tractor manual recommendations for maximum
hitch loads. Insufficient weight on tractor steering wheels
will result in loss of control.
▲ Carry reflectors or flags to mark air cart and drill in case of
breakdown on the road.
▲ Keep clear of overhead power lines and other obstructions
when transporting. Refer to transport dimensions under
“Specifications and Capacities” on page 87.
Wear Protective Equipment
▲ Wear protective clothing and equipment.
▲ Wear clothing and equipment appropriate for the job. Avoid
loose-fitting clothing.
▲ Because prolonged exposure to loud noise can cause
hearing impairment or hearing loss, wear suitable hearing
protection such as earmuffs or earplugs.
▲ Because operating equipment safely requires your full
attention, avoid wearing entertainment headphones while
operating machinery.

Handle Chemicals Properly
Agricultural chemicals can be dangerous. Improper use
can seriously injure persons, animals, plants, soil and
property.
▲ Do not use liquid treatments with air cart.
▲ Read and follow chemical manufacturer’s instructions.
▲ Wear protective clothing.
▲ Handle all chemicals with care.
▲ Avoid inhaling smoke from any type of chemical fire.
▲ Never drain, rinse or wash dispensers within 100 feet of a
freshwater source, nor at a car wash.
▲ Store or dispose of unused chemicals as specified by
chemical manufacturer.
▲ Dispose of empty chemical containers properly. Laws
generally require power rinsing or rinsing three times,
followed by perforation of the container to prevent re-use.
Confined Space
Once used for hazardous fertilizers, or seeds with
hazardous treatments, your hoppers may become
“permit-required confined spaces”
under applicable statutes, regulations, insurance rules or
business policy. The ladder provided in the hoppers is for
escape, not routine entry.
▲ A hopper that is full or merely appears full can be an
entrapment hazard. You can sink entirely into the grain, or
into a void, and suffocate in a matter of seconds. Grain
bridges and crusts are especially dangerous.
▲ When hazardous fumes are present, you can be quickly
overcome even with the hopper lid open.
▲ Do not enter a hopper for material loading, material
unloading, hopper cleaning or meter maintenance.
▲ Clean hopper by power washing from outside hopper top.
▲ Perform meter maintenance by removing meters from
bottom of empty hopper.
▲ If obstruction removal or repair requires hopper entry, have
the work performed by a team trained in confined space
procedures. See “Hopper Entry” on page 78.
Shutdown and Storage
▲ Clean out and safely store or dispose of residual chemicals.
▲ Secure air cart using blocks and the stand provided.
▲ Store in an area where children normally do not play.

Practice Safe Maintenance
▲ Understand procedure before doing work. Use proper tools
and equipment. Refer to this manual for additional
information.
▲ Work in a clean, dry area.
▲ Put tractor in park, turn off engine, and remove key before
performing maintenance.
▲ Make sure all moving parts have stopped and all system
pressure is relieved.
▲ Disconnect battery ground cable (-) before servicing or
adjusting electrical systems or before welding on cart.
▲ Inspect all parts. Make sure parts are in good condition and
installed properly.
▲ Remove buildup of grease, oil or debris.
▲ Remove all tools and unused parts from drill before
operation.
Tire Safety
Tire changing can be dangerous and should be
performed by trained personnel using correct tools and
equipment.
▲ When inflating tires, use a clip-on chuck and extension hose
long enough for you to stand to one side–not in front of or
over tire assembly. Use a safety cage if available.
▲ When removing and installing wheels, use wheel-handling
equipment adequate for weight involved.
Safety At All Times
Thoroughly read and understand the instructions in this
manual before operation. Read all instructions noted on
the safety decals.
▲ Be familiar with all air cart and drill functions.
▲ Operate machinery from the driver’s seat only.
▲ Do not leave air cart unattended with tractor engine
running.
▲ Do not dismount a moving tractor. Dismounting a moving
tractor could cause serious injury or death.
▲ Do not stand between the tractor and air cart during
hitching.
▲ Keep hands, feet and clothing away from power-driven
parts.
▲ Wear snug-fitting clothing to avoid entanglement with
moving parts.

Preparation and Setup
This section helps you prepare your tractor, air cart and
drill for use. Before using the air cart in the field, you
must hitch the air cart to a suitable tractor, compatible
drill, and also setup the drill.
Pre-Setup Checklist
1. Read and understand “Important Safety
Information” on page 1.
2. Check that all working parts are moving freely, bolts
are tight, and cotter pins are spread.
3. Check that all grease fittings are in place and
lubricated. See “Lubrication and Scheduled
Maintenance” on page 80.
4. Check that all safety decals and reflectors are
correctly located and legible. Replace if damaged.
See “Safety Decals” on page 6.
5. Inflate tires to pressure recommended and tighten
wheel bolts as specified. “Appendix” on page 87.
Installing Seed Monitor Terminal
The ADC2350/E and ADC2350B/BE cart standard seed
monitor system includes a virtual terminal that must be
mounted in the tractor cab. The kit includes an “H”
bracket for any modules, and a ball swivel for mounting
the bracket in the tractor.
Mount the modules so that they are easy to observe during
planting, but do not interfere with safe operation of the tractor
in the field or on public roads.
The ball swivel includes four 10-32 screws. You or your
dealer must provide the mounting holes for the screws.
Your dealer may have alternate suction cup or clamping
brackets available if you prefer to avoid drilling holes.
See the DICKEY-john® manual for harness connections.
The monitor needs to be configured with information
about your air drill, after hitching and electrical
connections. See “Setup Seed Monitor for Air Drill” on
page 29.
Once configured for your drill and your material, the seed
monitor performs the following functions:
On the Implement:
• Implement lift switch monitoring
• Fold function control (on some drill models)
• Seed flow blockage detection (optional)
167-085M

Cart Drive System
Refer to Figure 7, Figure 8 and table below
Sprockets on the cart need to be checked to ensure that
the seeding rates for your implement match those in the
Seed Rate manual.
The sprockets are factory-installed for a specific
implement, and may be incorrect if the cart is ultimately
delivered with a different implement. Once configured for
a particular implement, cart meter rate is determined by
the variable rate gearboxes and final drive range gears.

Hitching
Crushing Hazard:
You may be severely injured or killed by being crushed
between the tractor, air cart and drill. Do not stand or place
any part of your body between machines being hitched. Stop
tractor engine and set park brake before installing hitch pins.
When ready for planting, the air cart is part of an
assembly that includes the tractor, the air cart, and the
drill.
When hitching for the first time, hitch the leading
implement (cart or drill) first.
Once the air cart and drill are hitched together, they are
usually left connected, unless parking or storage
considerations require separation.
ADC2350/E Hitching
This manual includes full details only for the leading air
cart’s forward hitch. Consult the drill manual for trailing
drill hitching.
The air cart must be hitched to the tractor first. Continue
with ADC2350/E “Pull Between” Hitching on the next
page.

Hitching ADC2350/E to Tractor
To ensure consistent planting at the drill, the main frame
of the ADC2350/E air cart needs to be level. Set the
tongue height before hitching for the first time.
Refer to Figure 11
1. Using the crank on the jack stand 1 , adjust the
height 2 of the tongue to:
31 inches (78.7 cm).
The cart frame is level at this height.
2. Back the tractor up to the cart, and confirm that
when hitched, the cart tongue will remain at this
height. If not, adjust either the height of the tractor
hitch, or the location of the hitch strap 5 .

Make ADC2350/E Hydraulic Connections
High Pressure Fluid Hazard:
Only trained personnel should work on system hydraulics!
Relieve pressure before disconnecting hydraulic lines.
Escaping fluid under pressure can have sufficient pressure to
penetrate the skin causing serious injury. Use a piece of paper
or cardboard, NOT BODY PARTS, to check for leaks. Wear
protective gloves and safety glasses or goggles when working
with hydraulic systems. If an accident occurs, seek immediate
medical attention from a physician familiar with this type of
injury.
Current Style Color Coded Hose Handles
The air cart itself consumes hydraulic power for one or
two circuits, and has a low pressure sump return line.
When the cart leads the drill, the cart also passes
through three circuits necessary for drill operations.
Refer to Figure 16
Great Plains hydraulic hoses have color coded handle
grips to help you hookup hoses to your tractor outlets.
Hoses that go to the same remote valve are marked with
the same color.
To distinguish hoses on the same hydraulic circuit, refer
to the symbol molded into the handle grip. Hoses with an
extended-cylinder symbol feed cylinder base ends.
Hoses with a retracted-cylinder symbol feed cylinder rod
ends.
Figure 16
Color Coded Hose Grips
For hydraulic fan and drive motors, connect the hose
under the retracted cylinder symbol to the pressure side
of the motor. Connect the hose under the extended
cylinder symbol to the return side of the motor.
The fan motor further requires hookup of a third line,
which returns hydraulic fluid from the fan motor case.
Make sure all tractor levers are in neutral or float, or
tractor hydraulics are off, before making connections.
Fan Priority
If your tractor has a priority circuit for hydraulic motors,
connect the fan (Black) to this circuit.
ADC2350/E Hydraulic Hookup
The cart fan uses only the Extend/Base side of the Black
circuit, but both sides (plus sump) are passed through to
the trailing drill.
For CTA implements, some tractors require an auxiliary flow
kit to prevent damage to the hydraulic pump. Contact a factory
trained service technician before hooking to cart and CTA
implement.

Hitching ADC2350B/BE to Leading Drill
Hitching the ADC2350B/BE air cart to the drill is easiest
if the cart hoppers are empty of all seed and treatments.
Shifting the tongue side to side is difficult if material is
loaded, particularly in the forward hopper.
The ADC2350B/BE requires no leveling.
Once the cart is hitched to the drill, it may be left hitched
indefinitely, although disconnection may be necessary for
extensive backing operations.
1
Crush and Run-Away Hazards:
On completely level ground, it is possible to manually move an
empty cart for hitching. This is unsafe if the ground is not level,
or the cart is not empty. Leave any wheel chocks in place on
uneven/unlevel ground, or if cart is not empty.
2
Refer to Figure 18
Position the cart so that after hitching, only forward
movements are needed. Once connected to a drill and
tractor, reverse steering is extremely difficult.

Operating Instructions
This section covers general operating procedures. It
assumes that setup items have been completed for both
air cart and implement.
Experience, machine familiarity and the following
information will lead to efficient operation and good
working habits. Always operate farm machinery with
safety in mind.
General Description
Seed metering is powered by a cart tire and driven at a
rate proportional to distance traveled. Each seed bin is
self-contained and has its own metering device. The
seed bins are sealed and held at the same pressure as
the meter boxes so metering is controlled
mechanically–not by air-flow fluctuations. The metered
seed is carried by air through the hoses to the
distribution towers on the implement. These towers then
divide the air and seed into individual rows.
The metering devices are driven through an
electromagnetic clutch. The clutch only engages if the
implement is lowered, operating an adjustable lift switch.
Seed metering is shut off automatically when the drill is
lifted for headland turns.
Pre-Start Checklist
❑ Lubricate the cart as indicated under Lubrication,
“Maintenance and Lubrication” on page 74.
❑ Check the tires for proper inflation according to “Tire
Inflation Chart” on page 87.
❑ Check the chains for proper tension and alignment
as shown under Drive System Adjustments,

Walkboard Ladders
The walkboard between the hoppers is served by two
ladders, one on each side of the cart. When the auger is
latched in the storage position, it obstructs use of the
ladder on the right side.
The ladder on the right side is also removable, to allow
auger access under the rear meter box.
Ladder Operation
Refer to Figure 23
Both ladders have swing-down lower sections. These
need to be raised for transport and planting.
1
To stow a lower ladder section, swing it up until a
spring-loaded pin 1 engages a cutout in the right side of
the step frame. Make sure the pin engages, or the ladder
may swing down during cart movement.
To lower the ladder section, pull the pin out and swing the
section down.
Figure 23
Lower Ladder Section
26342
Removing the Right Ladder
Refer to Figure 24
If unloading the rear hopper, the lower section of the
right side walkboard ladder must be removed for auger
access to the rear meter.

Note: This ladder section is easier to handle if the bottom
step is swung up and pinned first.
5. Latch open the pins 2 that secure the lower ladder
section to the cart frame.

Meter Hand Crank
A hand crank is provided on the left side of the cart for
manual operation of the meters (the meters otherwise
turn only when the cart is in motion with the clutch
engaged).
Equipment Damage Risk:
Rotate the hand crank only in the counter-clockwise direction,
as shown in Figure 32. Operating in reverse (clockwise) can
cause meter gear box damage.
The crank is used for two common tasks:
3
• calibration of the meter setting for planting, and
• clean-out of the meter flute chamber.
Installing Crank

2
7. Pull the crank 2 out of the inside bracket 3 (only)
and slide the end of the crank shaft onto the outside
end of the meter jackshaft 4 . Re-insert the pin in the
crank shaft so it doesn’t get lost.
Figure 31
Hand Crank Storage
26333
Operating the Hand Crank
Refer to Figure 32
Turn the hand crank counter-clockwise to simulate meter
operation during planting.
Specific recommendations may be made in applicable
manual sections. See:
see “Meter Calibration” in the Seed Rate manual,
see “Unloading the Cart” on page 47, and
see “Storage” on page 55.
5
In general, you may operate the crank as fast as is
comfortable. For reference, at a field speed of 6 mph, the
jackshaft rotates at 150 rpm (2.5 turns per second).
For clean-out, make sure the variable rate gearboxes
are set:
5
Figure 32
Hand Cranking Direction
26333
• above “10” if the final drive range gears are in
High Range mode, or
• above “80” if the final drive range gears are in
Low Range mode.
To change variable rate gearbox and final drive range
gearing see “Setting Material Rates” on page 56.
Note: If variable rate gearbox is set to “0”, operating the
hand crank may fail to clear the meters of seed.

Drive Chain Lockout
Refer to Figure 33,
which depicts the primary drive sprocket locked out.
To minimize wear during transport, the chain drive
system up to the clutch can be locked out at the driving
wheel hub.
1
4
Locking Out for Transport
1. Locate the lockout pin receiver 1 on the primary 60T
sprocket weldment 2 at the wheel hub. Depending
on where rotation stopped at the last cart movement,
the receiver may be hidden behind the axle bolt
plate 3 . Lockout tasks may be performed with the
receiver exposed or hidden.
2
3
Figure 33
Drive Chain Lockout
When engaged for chain drive operations, a
spring-loaded pin plunger in the receiver occupies a
hole in the lockout hub plate (not visible) behind the
sprocket, so that both turn together. The cross-pin 4
in the plunger is in the deeper of the two detent
positions in the receiver.
263xx
2. Pull the cross-pin 4 toward machine center,
rotate it 90 degrees (one quarter turn), and
position it in the shallow receiver detents, as shown
in Figure 33.
Disengaging Lockout
Refer to Figure 33,
which depicts the primary drive sprocket locked out.
Pull the cross-pin 4 toward machine center,
rotate it 90 degrees (one quarter turn), and
position it in the deeper receiver detents.
Unless the mating hole in the lockout hub plate just
happens to be under the pin receiver (not likely), the pin
will not move all the way into the detent; however, the pin
will engage the hole automatically at next cart
movement.

Auger Operations
Electrocution Hazard:
Keep clear of overhead power lines when positioning auger.
The auger can reach 15 feet (4.6m) above ground level during
positioning operations. If it contacts a power line, nearly all
metal parts of the cart, tractor and drill will have lethal
voltage present, and anyone touching them can complete the
circuit to ground, resulting in serious injury or death. With
very high voltages, electrocution can occur without direct
contact.
5

This section covers only basic auger operations. For
specific tasks, see:
“Unloading the Cart” on page 47, and
“Loading Material” on page 44.
Latch the auger into its cradles and pin the arm pivots,
whenever the auger is not in use.

To avoid auger damage during cart movement,
do not rely solely on the arm pins to secure the auger in the
stored configuration. Use the latches.
7
Deploying Auger
The back (inlet) end of the auger has grasp handles.
When empty of material this end of the auger also tends
to be heavier. Start unlatching at the front end.

.
Auger Swing Arm
The auger arm may be completely unfolded to straight
out, or folded, with the middle pivot pointing to cart front
or back, as needed, to meet your loading or unloading
requirements.
The arms pins may be used during unfolding and
positioning to hold one arm in place while the other is
being moved. This is useful for single-person operations.
In specific working configurations, you can engage the
pins in slots or holes, to constrain the range of movement
of the arm, or prevent movement altogether.
Equipment Damage Risk:
Be aware of the location of the outlet end of the auger during
positioning. In addition to overhead line hazards, if a trailing
implement is folded, the auger can strike it during positioning,
with possible damage to the auger or implement.
See arm positioning illustrations at specific task topics:
“Unloading the Cart” on page 47, and
“Loading Material” on page 44.

Transport
Electrocution Hazard:
To prevent serious injury or death from electric shock, keep
clear of overhead power lines when transporting, folding,
unfolding or operating all air drill components. Machine is not
grounded. At higher voltages, electrocution can occur without
direct contact.
Great Plains recommends transporting the air cart
without seed loaded. Although designed for highway
movement with full hoppers, the additional weight of
seed may cause the implement assembly to exceed the
rated ability of the tractor, makes the assembly more
difficult to control and stop, and increases wear on cart
tires and wheel bearings.
Towing the drill at high speeds or with a vehicle that is not
heavy enough can lead to loss of vehicle control. Loss of
vehicle control can lead to serious road accidents, injury and
death. To reduce the hazard:
• Do not exceed 20 mph (32 km/h).
• Do not tow an assembly that, when fully loaded,
weighs more than 1.5 times the weight of the towing
vehicle.
In the following tables, the tractor must weight at least
2⁄ (67%) of the weights shown.
3
The tractor must also be rated for towing and braking
the total load shown.
Figure 44
Review Transport Checklist
26360
Minimum Towing Vehicle
Refer to the tables below, or compute the weight of your
configuration from the “Specifications and Capacities”
information in each manual, plus any material data.
Note: A loaded seed cart can easily cause the total
assembly weight to exceed 1.5 times the weight of
a fully ballasted tractor. Great Plains recommends
transport with the cart empty.

Pre-Transport Checklist
Before transporting the cart, check and observe the
following items.
❑ Make sure the weight of the tractor equals or exceeds
the value specified for your air drill assembly in the
tables above or calculated from specifications. Be
sure to include hopper contents if materials are
pre-loaded, and markers. If weights are added to the
tractor or drill, or to reach the tractor-weight figure,
make sure the total assembly weight is still within the
rated capacity of the tractor.
❑ Lockout Drive Chain.
If the cart will be transported more than 15 miles, lock
out drive chain to avoid wear.
See “Drive Chain Lockout” on page 37.
❑ Auger Latches
Properly latch auger to cart and rear storage arm

❑ Transport Locks
Check that all implement transport locks are securely
in place.
❑ Tires
Check that all tires are properly inflated as listed on
“Tire Inflation Chart” on page 87.
❑ Bystanders
Check that no one is in the way before moving. Do not
allow any one to ride on the cart or implement.
❑ Warning Lights
Always use tractor, cart and implement warning lights
when transporting the air drill.
❑ Clearance
Know the maximum dimensions of the cart and
implement in transport position and follow a route that
provides adequate clearance from all obstructions,
including overhead lines.
See “Specifications and Capacities” on page 87.
❑ Stopping Distance
Allow sufficient stopping distance and reduce speed
prior to any turns or maneuvers. If the cart is
transported full, allow extra stopping distance.
❑ Road Rules
Comply with all national, regional and local laws when
transporting on public roads.
❑ Watch Traffic
The bins obstruct a portion of your rear view. Be
prepared for sudden maneuvers from following
vehicles.
Monitor Material Configuration
The DICKEY-john® IntelliAg® monitor reads meter shaft
speeds and can report pounds-per-acre (or kg/ha)
planted. With the optional Variable Rate Kit, the monitor
can control material rates.
In order to report accurately, the monitor requires several
inputs. Inputs that rarely change were entered during
cart setup (see “Setup Seed Monitor for Air Drill” on
page 29). Inputs specific to particular materials (seed or
fertilizer) need to be entered when those materials are
first used, and when changed.
25421
See the DICKEY-john® Quick Start guide for
detailed instructions. Consult the DICKEY-john®
Operator’s Manual for how to configure
reporting and alerts.

Loading Material
Entrapment and suffocation hazard:
Never enter a hopper for loading or unloading.
Once used for hazardous fertilizer or treated seed, dangerous
concentrations of fumes may be present even in an empty
hopper with the lid open.
Even with small amounts of otherwise harmless material
loaded, the atmosphere inside the hopper may have insufficient
oxygen or high levels of choking dust.
1. Securely hitch cart or drill+cart to a tractor with
adequate weight and power. Park cart on solid, level
ground. See Tractor Requirements, “Specifications
and Capacities” on page 87.
Note: Static tongue weight of a loaded cart is about
9,500 pounds on level ground and more when
facing downhill.
Refer to Figure 45
2. At each hopper to be loaded, if meter box clean-out
door was completely closed, open it. See “Meter
Doors” on page 35. If the cart has been parked for
more than a day, condensation may have caused
moisture to accumulate.
3. Wipe seals and meter bottom flanges clean. Close
and latch clean-out doors.

Population Risk:
Before filling the cart for the first time, and at the beginning of
each season, check the entire bin for leaks. A small air leak
can cause large variations in seeding rates.
4. With the cart fan running, check hopper-lid and
meter-box seals carefully for air leaks. Adjust bin
latch or replace seals to prevent leakage.
5. Shut off all hydraulic power to the cart.
Refer to Figure 46

Field Operations
This section presumes that all pre-operation check
have been made on both air cart and drill, and cart is
loaded with seed and any treatments.
Single Hopper Operation
There are two ways to disable a meter if only one
hopper is being used.
1. For short planting sessions, simply set the variable
rate gearbox control arm to zero (0). The input shaft
to the gearbox still rotates, but the output shaft
does not, and no material is metered.
2. For extended planting sessions, loosen the idler
and remove the gearbox input drive chain. This
minimizes wear on the gearbox.
Fan Speed
Fan speed is monitored and reported by the seed
monitor, but is manually controlled. The optimum rate
depends on the seed type, any treatments. “Fan Speed
Adjustment” on page 68 for further information.
Refer to Figure 64
ADC2350/E only: Fan shut-off valve must be open for fan
to operate. This valve is not present on ADC2350B/BE.
Equipment Damage Risk:
Always engage the fan with the tractor at a low engine speed.
Engaging the fan when the tractor is at high speed may cause
fan damage.
Do not reverse hydraulic flow with the fan running.

Final Field Checklist
❑ Set seed meters per chart and calibration.
❑ Check diverter valve set to marker or fan.
Check fan shut-off valve open (fan enabled)
❑ Set fan to speed suitable for seed. Watch fan at
start-up to ensure correct direction of rotation.
❑ Run fan for at least 15 minutes before planting.
❑ Check air pressure gauge for 12 to 25 inches of
water pressure.
❑ Check all seed hoses secure.
❑ Check for air leaks at lids and meter box seals.
❑ Complete drill checklist.
Follow these steps when parking the drill for periods of
less than 36 hours. For longer periods, see Storage, the
next topic.
1. Place the cart on firm, level ground.
2. Check that hopper lids are latched, and secure the
hopper lids with security cable or padlock and chain
to prevent entry by children. See “Lid Closing” on
page 33.
3. ADC2350/E only: Remove jack from storage position
and pin securely to lifting stob on outside of cart
tongue. See “Hitching” on page 20.
Planting Sequence
4. ADC2350/E only: If ground is soft place a wide block
or plate under the jack to increase contact area.
1. Lower drill 5 to 10 feet before initial seeding point.
5. Securely block cart tires to prevent rolling.
2. Pull forward and begin planting.
6. ADC2350/E only: Extend jack until weight is off of
the tractor drawbar.
3. Raise drill for turns (meters stop automatically).
7. Unhook electrical lines and install plugs as provided.
Planting
Be aware of the 5 to 10 feet of drill-lowered operating
distance required for seed to reach the row units.
If you stop in the middle of a pass, raise the drill and back
up 10 feet before resumption of seeding.
8. Release pressure on hydraulic system, then
disconnect hydraulic lines and pull all lines back onto
cart tongue. Be sure hose ends do not rest on the
ground.
9. Disconnect the safety chain.
10. Unhitch from tractor or leading implement.

Storage
If possible, leave the air cart and drill connected for
extended storage.
Store the air cart and drill where children do not play. If
possible, store them inside for longer life.
1. Unload all material in hoppers. See “Unloading the
Cart” on page 47.
8. Check all bolts, pins, fittings and hoses. Tighten,
repair or replace parts as needed.
2. Unlatch the hopper lids so that the seals are not in
compression during storage. Route a chain or
security cable through the hold-down U-bolt and the
latch handle to prevent unauthorized entry, and
prevent high winds from opening the lid.
9. Check all moving parts for wear or damage. Make
notes of any parts needing repair before the next
season.
3. Empty the hoppers completely. Hand crank the
meters several turns to empty completely. See
“Meter Hand Crank” on page 36. Blow out the
meters with air to remove all material.
11. Thoroughly wash the hoppers with water inside and
out to prevent corrosion from fertilizer or seed
treatments.
4. Unless cleaned out at last loading or during unload
above, deploy the auger, and run the motor in
reverse until auger is completely empty. See “Auger
Operations” on page 38
10. Open the meter-box doors completely to release
seal pressure and allow rinse water to exit.
12. Set doors to slightly open, but not wide enough for
animals to enter the meters. Wire doors in place if
needed.
Do not store the cart with seals compressed.
5. Return the auger to its cradle with the hopper in the
extended storage orientation. See “Storing Auger”
on page 40.
13. If the cart is disconnected from the implement for
storage, plug all 21⁄2 inch openings to prevent pests
from nesting.
6. Remove the drive chains and store in oil.
14. Raise and stow the walkboard ladder extensions, to
discourage climbers.
7. Lubricate the cart at all points listed under
“Lubrication and Scheduled Maintenance” on
page 80.
2012-08-01
15. Use touch-up paint to cover scratches, chips and
worn areas to prevent rust.

Check Drive System
Reliable material rates are only achieved if the ground
drive system is working properly. The transport tires must
be the correct size, and must be inflated to factory
specifications. Drive sprockets must be correct for the
implement.

Check Flute Shaft Type
1
For some unusual very high rate applications and some
small seeds, Great Plains offers alternate meter flute
shafts (page 85) that change rates to 150%, 200% or
approximately 25% vs. the factory standard shaft.
2
Refer to Figure 66
(which depicts a single flute “star” with its halves, a single star
mated, two stars staggered, and a filler)
Know your “stars” setup. If your air drill cart has never
been changed from factory standard, you have standard
meter flute shafts with 2 “stars” (4 halves) per outlet.
How many and what type of “stars” you have determines
which rate chart to use.
3
Figure 66
Standard / Small Stars and Filler
Refer to Figure 67
(depicting an inspection from below meter)
If the configuration is not known, inspect the flute shaft
from the hopper lid (if hopper empty), or from below the
meter, with the calibration door fully open. It is not
necessary to remove the shaft. Inspect the flutes
( 1 or 2 ), and filler rings 3 at active outlets.

4
On a standard “2 star” shaft, each seed drop outlet
contains two standard flute sets (4 halves 1 ), each pair
staggered slightly from the next. Unused outlets are fully
blocked by filler rings 4 .
On a “3 star” shaft, each outlet contains 3 flute 1 sets.
On a “4 star” shaft, each outlet contains 4 flute 1 sets,
with no fillers between adjacent drops.
On a small seed shaft, each outlet contains one set of
shallow flutes 2 .

If you are planning to apply two different materials (such
as seed and fertilizer) in each hopper, perform the setup
steps separately for each hopper, as the configurations
(including stars) may be completely different.
“High Rate” charts are provided for some seeds, but the
charts do not cover all possible combinations of
dual-hopper and/or high-rate flutes. You can use any
standard-rate single-hopper chart.

Adjustment for Small Seeds
Small Seeds rates are provided for somea, but not all
seeds that might be compatible with the optional
smaller/shallow flute shaft. If the seed has a chart for the
standard shaft, choose a chart rate that is about 500%
(5x) the desired field rate. The Small Seeds shaft meters
at between 20% and 50% of the standard shaft.
Monitor Material Configuration
The DICKEY-john® IntelliAg® monitor reads meter shaft
speeds and can report pounds/acre (or kg/ha) planted.
In order to report accurately, the monitor requires several
inputs. Inputs that rarely change were entered during
cart setup. Inputs specific to particular materials (seed or
fertilizer) need to be entered when those materials are
first used, and when changed.
See the DICKEY-john® Quick Start guide more
detailed instructions.

If the monitor inputs are correctly entered, the monitor is
a handy tool for fine tuning the variable rate gearbox
setting. If the rate reported by the monitor does not
match the desired planting rate, rotate the crank to adjust
the variable rate gearbox control arm slightly so as to
achieve the desired planting rate.
Meter Rate Adjustment
Seed rate is determined by:
• Flute shafts (covered on page 57):
standard 2-star/1x rate, or
optional 3-star/1.5x or 4-star/2x rates
• Single/twin hopper metering
• Seed meter Final Drive Range gearing
• Variable Rate Gearbox setting
The Seed Rate Manual charts are based on cleaned
untreated seed of average size and test weight. Many
factors affect meter rates including foreign material, seed
treatment, seed size, field conditions, and test weight.
Minor adjustments will be needed to compensate for
these factors. Initially set the rates according to the
charts, then calibrate for your material and conditions.
Calibration is also required to set up the monitor
Calibration Constant. With the correct Calibration
Constant and material density the monitor can be used
to help fine tune the variable rate gearbox setting.

Setting Variable Rate Gearbox
The variable rate gearbox allows you to infinitely vary the
meter drive speed to attain a wide range of seeding
rates. The ratio of gearbox input speed to output speed is
controlled by the position of a gearbox control arm. The
control arm has an indicator that points to a scale
marked in degrees. The Seed Rate and Fertilizer Rate
charts show the rate for each degree of the control arm
rotation.
Refer to the seed rate charts and set each variable rate
gearbox control arm to its scale setting for the desired
seeding rate. With the optional servo-controlled meters,
the rate is set via the seed monitor terminal.

3. Reinsert the hairpin cotter.
Note: The variable rate gearbox operates optimally
between 30 and 70. If a seed has charts for both
HIGH Range and LOW Range, the most consistent
results are obtained when the gearbox control arm
is set between 30 and 70. Settings below
20 degrees are not recommended. When the
control arm is set above 70 degrees, large
movements of the arm result in small changes in
seeding rate.
Note: If you will be metering the same material from both
bins at the same time, use the Seed Rate chart
entry for half the desired application rate. Do not
use a half scale setting - the effect of the variable
rate gearbox control arm is not linear.
Meter Calibration
Push

meter calibration.
and then
to get to
The Seed Rate charts are based on cleaned untreated
seed of average size and test weight. Many factors affect
meter rates including foreign material, seed treatment,
seed size, field conditions, and test weight. The Fertilizer
Rate chart is based on a representative granular
fertilizer.
Great Plains recommends calibrating for the exact
materials you intend to apply. Calibration determines two
very important settings for achieving accurate rates:
• The pounds per acre (or kg/ha) of the meter at the
current variable rate gearbox setting for your particular
seed or fertilizer.
• The Calibration Constant for the monitor to accurately
report the planting rate of your particular seed or fertilizer.
Calibration Procedure
The seed monitor must be correctly set up for both the air
drill and the material(s), or the calibration will not result in
useful monitor displays.
1. Set the Final Drive Range gears and Variable Rate
Gearbox setting to the values suggested in the Seed
Rate Chart (or Fertilizer Rate Chart).
2. Make sure there is enough material in the hopper(s)
for at least 1⁄10 acre (or 1⁄10 hectare) plus an extra
75 to 100 lbs. (35-45 kg).

Rotate the calibration crank only in the
COUNTERCLOCKWISE direction. Operating in reverse can
cause gearbox damage.
6. Turn the calibration crank enough turns to be sure
the meter flutes are full and the system is metering.
Obey manufacturer or grower recommendations for safety
equipment and protective gear when using treated seeds.
7. Wipe all material off the flanges around the meter
door.
8. Accurately weigh an empty container large enough
to catch material coming out of the meter. The
calibration bag supplied with your cart weighs
3.36 lbs (1.53 kg).
Refer to Figure 73
9. Place container under open calibration door. If using
the calibration bag, loop bag handles over the door
handles and hook the bag to the front of the meter.
10. On the seed monitor terminal,
set the monitor to Calibration mode
enter [ 5 ] for the “# Meter Revs”, and
press the Start softkey

.
This “# Meter Revs” parameter does not affect the
monitor calibration because the monitor counts
actual meter shaft revolutions and uses that count to
compute the Calibration Constant.
The “# Meter Revs” parameter is used for a progress
bar displayed during calibration.

13. Accurately weigh the container plus material.
Subtract the empty container weight to determine
the application rate for 1⁄10 acre (or 1⁄10 hectare).
Example:
MeasuredWeight is 10.92 pounds
SampleWeight = 10.92 - 3.36,
which is: 7.56 pounds
SampleWeight = MeasuredWeight – ContainerWeight

from the target rate to determine a correction
difference.
RateDifference = T arg etR ate – CalibratedRate
17. Refer to the seed rate chart for Seed Rate gearbox
setting values for the target rate.
Index
If the calibrated rate was
higher than target (as in our example),
examine lower gearbox setting values.
65
Example: TargetRate = 67.6
RateDifference = 67.6 - 75.6,
which is: -8 pounds
The calibration run metered 8 pounds too much.
You must lower the gearbox setting to compensate.
Example:

2 degrees lower reduces by 67.6-60.4, or 7.2 lbs
3 degrees lower reduces by 67.6-56.9, or 10.7 lbs
If the calibrated rate was
lower than target,
examine higher gearbox setting values.
19. Adjust the control arm by the number of degrees
needed to adjust for the calibration difference.
The rate of the arm adjusting crank is more than one
scale degree per turn, and the crank can only be
pinned at quarter turns. Pin it when the indicator is
closest to the corrected setting.
Example:
The calibration difference was 8 pounds.
Adjusting down 2 degrees would correct by 7.2 pounds,
but adjusting by 3 would over-correct to 10.7 lbs.
So adjust the gearbox setting to just over 2 degrees
lower, to a final scale setting slightly below 36.
20. Run the calibration again, starting at step 9, using
the new Variable Rate Gearbox scale setting.
This validates the gearbox adjustment, and
establishes a new, more precise Calibration
Constant.
21. With the present meter satisfactorily calibrated,
re-mount the final drive gear removed from the other
hopper.
22. Repeat the calibration procedure for the other
hopper, starting at step 1.
If only planting from a single hopper, see “Single
Hopper Operation” in the air cart Operator’s manual
for methods of disabling the meter on the hopper not
in use.
23. Remove and store the calibration crank.

Fan Speed Adjustment
Fan speed (rpm) is available on the seed monitor. Have
the seed monitor powered up for fan adjustments.
Refer to Figure 77
ADC2350/E only: Fan shut-off valve must be open for fan
to operate. Valve not present on model ADC2350B/BE.
Hydraulic Fan Start-Up
With the ADC2350/E fan shut-off valve open, and the
tractor at a low idle speed, energize tractor hydraulics for
fan. Lock hydraulic lever in place for continuous
operation. Refer to your tractor operator’s manual for
instructions on operating hydraulic motor.
Always engage the fan with the tractor at a low engine speed.
Engaging the fan when the tractor is at high speed may cause
fan damage.
Check that the bottom of the fan rotor rotates toward the
fan outlet port. If not, reverse the direction of the
hydraulic flow from the tractor.

Fan Air Pressure
26425
Run fan for at least 15 minutes before seeding. Hydraulic
fluid must be warm before fan and wing down pressure
will operate properly.
1. Check bin-lid and meter-box seals for air leaks.
Adjust the latch or replace the seals to prevent
leakage.
Note: It only takes a very small air leak to cause large
variations in the seeding rate and pattern.
2. Watch the seed monitor and adjust fan speed by
increasing or decreasing hydraulic flow from the
tractor. Use the following guidelines and the fan
speed chart at right to properly adjust fan speed.
• Higher fan speeds improve seed distribution, but
high fan speeds also increase the chance of seed
damage and bounce.
• At first, adjust fan speed to the high end of the
range suggested in the chart at right. Watch for
excessive seed cracking and seed bounce from
the furrow, then reduce fan speed if necessary.
• Follow the chart at right as a guide. Actual fan
speeds will vary with implement width, row
spacing, seeding rates, seed weights and seed
size. Increase fan speed for heavier seeding rates
or seed. Reduce fan speed for lighter seeding
rates and seed more prone to cracking.

Maintenance and Lubrication
Proper servicing and maintenance is the key to long
implement life. With careful and systematic inspection,
you can avoid costly maintenance, downtime and repair.
Always turn off and remove the tractor key before making
any adjustments or performing any maintenance.
Crushing Hazard:
You may be severely injured or killed by being crushed under a
falling implement. Always have frame sufficiently blocked up
when working on, and particularly under implement.
High Pressure Fluid Hazard:
Escaping fluid under pressure can have sufficient pressure to
penetrate the skin. Check all hydraulic lines and fittings before
applying pressure. Fluid escaping from a very small hole can
be almost invisible. Use paper or cardboard, not body parts,
and wear heavy gloves to check for suspected leaks. If injured,
seek immediate medical attention from a health care provider
familiar with this type of injury.
After using drill for several hours, check all bolts to be
sure they are tight.
1. Securely block cart before working on it.
2. Lubricate areas listed under “Lubrication and
Scheduled Maintenance” on page 80.
3. Adjust idlers to remove excess slack from chains.
Clean and use chain lube on all roller chains as
needed.
4. Check for air leaks at lids, doors, seals, caps and
hose connections.
5. Inflate tires as specified on “Tire Inflation Chart” on
page 87.
6. Replace any worn, damaged or illegible safety
decals. Order new decals from your Great Plains
dealer. “Safety Decals” on page 6.

Chain Maintenance
Initially check the drive chains after the first 10 hours of
drill use. The slack of new chains tends to increase
during the first few hours of operation due to seating.
Thereafter, check the chains every 100 hours.

Lubricate chains any time there is a chance of moisture,
and when being stored at the end of the planting season.
2
Chain Slack
Refer to Figure 86, which, for clarity, greatly exaggerates
slack, and omits the idlers.
1. Measure the span 1 for allowable slack:
Locate the longest span of each chain (usually the
span which does not run through the idlers).
2. Determine the ideal slack:
Long chains (over 91 cm / 36 inches):
1⁄ inch per foot (2.1 cm/m)
4
Vertical short chains:
1⁄ inch per foot (2.1 cm/m)
4
Horizontal short chains:
1⁄ inch per foot (4.2 cm/m).

3. Measure the current slack 2 :
Acting at a right angle to the chain span at the centre
of the span, deflect the chain in both directions. The
slack is the distance of the movement.
4. Adjust the idlers for ideal slack.
Whenever mounting a chain, make sure the clip at the
removable link is oriented to minimize snags.

Problem Clean-Outs
For normal unloading of residual materials at completion
of planting, see “Unloading the Cart” on page 47. If,
however, parking and storage recommendations have
not been followed, it is possible to have hard-to-remove
material present.
If the material fails to pass through the clean-out door,
take the following steps to remove it. Do not consider
entering the hopper until first completing these tasks.
Open the clean-out door.
Remove the strainer and evaluate the problem.
For example:
• If the problem is a single moveable large object, such
as a dead animal, fishing out from above may be the
solution.
• If the problem is congealed materials, scoop out a
sample from above and see if the mass dissolves in
water. If so, and there is a small amount of the material
involved, rinsing, or rinsing and pumping the hopper
from above may be the solution.
For small amounts of residual materials, poking with a
long pole may suffice to push it through the clean-out.
If poking doesn’t produce satisfactory results, and you
intend to try wash-out, at least poke one hole down to the
clean-out, so that water can flow out.
If wash-out is contemplated, start by introducing a small
amount of water, and make sure that it appears at the
clean-out within 15 minutes. If not, you will just be adding
water to the problem. The hopper is not designed to hold
water at full capacity. Add no more, remove meter box
instead, and clean out from below.
Removing Meter Box
Removing the meter box exposes 7×7 inch access holes
through which stubborn material may be extracted.
Refer to Figure 88
1. Not shown: Loosen the gearbox-to-meter chain idler
and remove the chain. Disconnect inlet and outlet
hoses. Disconnect or remove the seed rate sensor.

2. Loosen all the nuts 1 securing the meter box 2 to
the hopper bottom plate 3 . Unscrew the nuts to the
bolt ends, but do not completely remove the nuts.
3. The meter box has a bead of silicone sealant
between it and the bottom plate. Use a pry tool to
free the meter box from the bottom plate.
Figure 88
Remove Meter for Cleaning
4. Once hanging entirely on the loose bolts, remove the
nuts and lower the meter box from the hopper.

When re-mounting the meter box, scrape off the old
silicone sealant and replace it with fresh sealant.

Hopper Entry
Normal use of the hopper and routine maintenance do
not require entry. Ladders are provided in the hoppers,
but they are for emergency egress, and are not intended
for routine entry. However, do not remove the ladders, as
they are also pressure-balancing vent lines.
▲ A hopper that is full or merely appears full can be an
entrapment hazard. You can sink entirely into the grain, or
into a void, and suffocate in a matter of seconds. Grain
bridges and crusts are especially dangerous.
▲ You can be overcome by hazardous fumes very quickly even
in an empty hopper with the lid open.
▲ A partially full hopper, even with no bridging present, is a
suffocation risk.
Oxygen levels may be insufficient and/or
dust levels may be too high for breathing.
▲ Do not enter a hopper for loading material.
▲ Do not enter a hopper for unloading material.
▲ Do not enter a hopper for routine cleaning.
▲ Do not enter a hopper for any meter maintenance.
▲ Never enter a hopper without at least one trained and
equipped attendant present.
Rapid Suffocation Hazard:
Encrusted grain may be loose and flowing beneath the crust.
Any hollow spaces are highly likely to have insufficient oxygen
and/or toxic gases from microbial action. Falling through a
crust in either case can result in death in a matter of seconds.
Never enter a hopper to dislodge a crust or bridge.
▲ Never enter a hopper for any reason unless you fully
comply with applicable laws, regulations, rules,
agreements, and the instructions in this section. Where
applicable laws, regulations, rules, agreements contradict
an instruction below, do not follow that instruction.
Depending on their use, the ADC2350/E and
ADC2350B/BE material hoppers may be or become
“permit-required confined spaces” under U.S. OSHA
regulations (29 CFR 1910.146) and similar regulations,
statutes, insurance agreements and local business
policy. A written policy and permitting process may be
required for any hopper entry.
Hopper entry may be necessary in some unusual
circumstances, such as:
• hopper level sensor replacement; or,
• removal of obstructions too difficult to pull out with the
meter box removed and not susceptible to fishing or
pumping out from the open lid.

Should such a situation arise, observe the following
precautions:
1. Evaluate the hazards
Review the material safety data sheets (MSDS) for
any treatments and/or fertilizers used in the hopper
since it was last thoroughly cleaned, and the most
recent materials even if the hopper was
subsequently cleaned. Retain the MSDS information
for any medical treatment that might be required.
6. Secure the cart
Block the cart wheels to prevent movement.
2. Designate or engage a team
Hopper entry is never a single-person activity. At
least one attendant/observer is necessary. Give
priority to individuals already trained in confined
space operations. Designate a leader (who will not
be the entrant) with authority to terminate the activity.
8. Empty the hopper
Follow the steps at “Unloading the Cart” on
page 47. If a blockage makes this impossible, use an
external pump line to remove as much material as
possible without performing a hopper entry. Pump
until at least some material is exiting the clean-out
door. Leave the clean-out door open.
3. Protect the team
Obtain the necessary safety equipment specified for
confined space exposure to those materials, paying
particular attention to respiratory support and
protection. This may include contaminant detection
equipment and positive ventilation to refresh air in
the hopper.
4. Equip the team
At least one attendant must be equipped with
communications capability, to summon outside aid in
the event that the hopper worker is overcome. Equip
the entrant with a safety harness and safety line.
5. Train the team
Review the hazards. Review the procedures.
Understand the use of the protective equipment.
Know the steps to take in emergencies. Practice
them. Train the observer to summon aid, and not
attempt hopper entry if the entrant is overcome.

7. Disrupt crusting or bridging
From outside the hopper, break up any hard
surfacing on top of the material, or forming layers
within the material. Such layers are extremely
dangerous to stand on.
9. Clean the hopper
From the outside at the walkboard, power-wash the
inside of the hopper. Use a mild detergent sprayer.
Rinse thoroughly.
10. Air the hopper
Leave the hopper lid and clean-out door open, and
do not commence work until the rinse water has
completely evaporated.
11. Plan the work. Work the plan.
Postpone the work if any team members, equipment
or other resources are missing, or weather/lighting
conditions are not favorable. Terminate and evacuate
if any unexpected situations arise.

Blockage Detector
The seed monitor supports sensors that monitor for
plugging in the one-inch, secondary hoses. The package
includes programmable blockage modules for each tower
and flow sensors for each secondary seed hose. The
blockage modules signal the monitor when flow stops at
a sensor. The monitor then sounds an alarm and
identifies the problem hose.
To order blockage sensors, contact your Great Plains
dealer.

Alternate Flute Sets
The standard model ADC2350/E and ADC2350B/BE Air
Drill Carts have two fluted wheels (“stars”) and two filler
rings in each active meter compartment.
s
3
Alternate flute shafts are available for higher ( 3 , 4 ) rates
and for small seeds s . These accessories replace the
existing 2-star shaft assembly 2 with one having a
different star configuration. This provides different
seeding rates for the same Range and variable rate
gearbox setting. See “Changing Meter Flutes” on
page 66 for installation instructions.
4
2
If your seeding rates need to be higher than those listed
in the Seed Rate Manual, select one of the high rate
shafts.
• Replacing the standard 2-star shaft with a 3-star
shaft 3 increases the seeding rate by approximately
50% (to 150% of standard rate).
• Replacing the standard 2-star shaft with a 4-star
shaft 4 increases the seeding rate by approximately
double (to 200% of standard rate).
For small seeds (see list at right) or other seeds
substantially smaller than 12×4.7 mm (1⁄2×3⁄16 inch), the
standard shaft may not provide sufficient precision and
uniform flow at very low rates. A small seeds flute
shaft s is available that provides two half-width shallow
flute stars per compartment.
32398
• For compatible seeds, replacing the standard 2-star
shaft with the small seeds shaft s reduces the
seeding rate by approximately 80% (to 20% of
standard rate).
The kit required depends on the number of towers on the
implement and the number of stars desired. Order one
kit per meter (two per air cart)
