Description of Machine
The Duncan ‘Renovator AS6000’ is a Coil Tine T-boot
drill and is fitted with large diameter disc openers.
The large split hopper is mounted on a robust centre
frame accommodating wide tyres at the rear and a 2
point linkage at the front.
Sowing depth is controlled by adjusting the hydraulic
depth stop as required. The quality European air
metering units handle all seeds from turnip and rape
through to peas and maize and permits easy calibration.
The seeders are driven via a ground speed proportional
electric drive system. Seeding ceases automatically
when the machine is raised into the transport postion.
The wings and following rollers may be hydraulically
folded up for legal tranport width.
Working Principle
The air flow, metering units and electric drive system
are easily set to give the desired sowing and/or fertilizer
rate. The front disc precuts the ground surface followed
by the coil tine and T-boot which creates the seed bed.
Air delivers seed down the flexible tubes between the
seeder and tee-boot units and drops into the prepared
seed bed. An optional roller enhances seed to soil
contact.

Electrical & Hydraulic Connections
Connecting the ‘Renovator AS6000’
Couple the Renovator AS6000 to the tractor’s lower link.
The Electrical and Hydraulic services must be connected and
are described below:ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS
(i) Route the Heavy Duty power cable and connect
directly to the tractor’s battery. Secure the cable to
provide strain relief for the battery terminals and to
prevent abrasion against parts of the tractor.
(ii) Secure the ProSeries Head Unit at a suitable position
within the tractor cab using the supplied mounting
bracket. Connect the large grey metal ‘D’ plug to the
rear of the unit and secure by gently tightening the
thumbscrew of the swing bracket against the notch in the
plug. Connect the other end to the long cable from the
‘Renovator AS6000’.
(iii) Connect the 3 pin power plug of the wing/roller
control box to the tractor. If the tractor does not have a
suitable connection, the lead must be connected to a
fused supply from the tractor.
HYDRAULIC CONNECTIONS
Connections are required for the following functions:(i)
Main Wheel Lift.
(ii) Wing folding.
(iii) Rollers (switchable between lift and fold).
(iv) Fan motor.
The machine is transported with the wings and rollers
secured. If, when operating the machine for the first time
air may be present in the hydraulic rams. This may cause
the wings to drop suddenly until the air had been purged.
It is the operator’s responsiblity to ensure that the tractor
oil supply is filled to the correct level as a quantity of oil
will be taken into the machine’s hydraulic circuit. It may
be necessary to top up the oil level after connection.
The return hose for the hydraulic fan must only
be connected to the tractor’s low pressure return
circuit.
If this is not carried out, the hydraulic motor seals
will fail.
The hose is fitted with a 3/4” female Quick Release
Coupling.
A 3/4” male QR Coupling is provided to fit to your
tractor.
The return hose is large to prevent back pressure on
the motor, case drain and seal.

Transport
Transport
1
Raise the drill into the transport position.
2
Fold up the wings and rollers. Secure.
2
Important - To avoid machine damage due to drill
lowering during transport, always close the hydraulic
valves for the wheels, wings and rollers. Move the
handles to a position at 900 to the hydraulic line.
3
Locate jack stand in transport position.
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
30 km/hr.
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.

Setting Depth & Levelling
Wing Opening
Ensure that the machine is in the raised position.
Lower the wings taking care to ensure personnel are clear of
the machine.
Air may be present in the wing hydraulic cylinders- the wings
may drop unexpectedly. Open and close the cylinders a few
times to purge the air.
Lower the wings. The wings will droop slightly; the extra
movement past the horizontal position allows the wings to
follow the ground contouring.
Main Wheel Lift & Centre Frame Depth
Control
shallow
deep
The machine may be raised for transport and for turning at
headlands etc.
When the machine is lowered, a pushrod that is linked to
the rear axle, closes a hydraulic valve fitted in the return line
from the wheel lift hydraulic cylinders. The point at which the
valve closes is easily adjustable - therefore the drilling depth
of the machine can be set.
Gauge the depth using the tines on the centre frame. To set
the machine at the preferred working depth, lift the machine
up and move the adjuster block up clear of the valve. Next,
lower the machine down to the required depth, level using
the tractor’s lower link and turn the ball valve to hold the
machine in position.
Adjust the block so that it actuates the valve at this point.
To increase the working depth, move the adjuster block
down. Never move the block away from the actuated valve
without closing the ball valve.
When gauging the depth you may have to pull the machine
along to a clear area to allow the tines to work.
Wing Depth Adjustment
Adjust and level the wings using the respective turnbuckles;
use the depth labels to ensure both wings are set the same.
Pull the machine through the ground and make any fine
adjustments to the wings and the main depth stop. Remember to level the machine; especially so if depth changes are
made.
Wing Loading
If the ground is hard, the wing cylinders may be used to load
up the tines to ensure penetration.
Whilst sitting in the tractor cab, visually locate the pressure
gauge at the front of the drill. Ensure that you have the wing/
roller control box to hand.
Load the wings by operating the hydraulics as if you were
opening the wings. The pressure gauge reading will increase. Once a pressure of ??? is seen, flick the wing switch
on the control box- this will maintain the downforce.
Too much pressure will lift the centre frame and lead to inconsistant depth control. Check the gauge from time to time.
16
‘Renovator AS6000’
Tyred Roller Operation
Roller Description
The roller sub frame is lifted and the roller wings folded for
transport.
When drilling, the roller contours the ground under its own
weight. The hydraulics to the roller lift must be in float.
One set of remotes is used for the roller unit: - the lift and
fold functions are switchable from the wing/roller control box.
The default (ie with no electrical power applied) hydraulic
circuit is ‘lift’.
To prepare for drilling
Operate the ball valve to open the hydraulics to the roller,
flick ‘on’ the roller control box switch and operate the hydraulics to open the roller wings.
Set the controls to float and flick the switch off. The whole
unit will then drop until it touches the ground or, if the drill is
in transport position, until the lift rams are fully extended.
After Drilling
To prepare for transport, lift the roller. Flick the switch ‘on’
and operate the hydraulics to fold the wings. Flick the switch
‘off’ once the wings are fully folded. Operate the ball valve to
the roller hydraulics. Raise the machine for transport.

General Operation
General Operation Guidelines
1
The return hose for the hydraulic fan must only be connected to
the tractor’s low pressure return circuit.
If this is not carried out, the hydraulic motor seals will fail.
The hose is fitted with a 3/4” female Quick Release Coupling.
A 3/4” male QR Coupling is provided to fit to your tractor.
The return hose is large to prevent back pressure on the motor,
case drain and seal.
2
Use a sufficiently powerful tractor which is heavy enough to tow the
drill safely.
3
Operate the drill at a speed of 6-12 km/hr (4-8 mph).
In stony and uneven ground conditions a lower speed is more
appropriate
4
Check that the drill is level during calibration and while seeding.
5
Check tyre pressure before seeding. Refer page 5.
6
Double check seed rates before seeding.
7
Raise the drill out of the ground when making any turns.
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 & axles.
c Fasteners & structural components.
3 More extreme conditions will result in greater vibration
and uneven seed flow at low seeding rates.
18
‘Renovator AS6000’
General Operation
Sowing Depth Control
The sowing depth is dependent on:
1 The wheel height in relation to the chassis
2 Tyre pressure
3 Ground condition i.e. hard or soft
The wheel height in relation to the chassis is controlled using
the hydraulic depth stop. With the machine raised up, adjust
the position of the depth stop.
Level Drill
With the rear depth set, use the tractor hydraulics to level
the machine.
Transport Position
It is recommended to raise the drill into the transport
position when turning at headlands to avoid damage to the

If the machine has not been calibrated ignore these warnings until calibration is complete.
To maintain the requested drilling rate, the metering motors speed up in proportion to the
forward speed of the machine. The metering motors are protected by a speed and current
limit. If the forward speed exceeds the maximum advised, the metering motors will not be
able to deliver enough product. At normal rates and speeds this limit is never found. Note that
the indicated maximum is for the lowest of the 2 products shown.

Calibration
Calibration
The calibration test should be done to confirm the settings of
the required seed rate and is done with the drill stationary and
level with the fan off.
The metering units must be set prior to filling with seed and
the bins are calibrated one-at-a-time.
Calibration Procedures
1
On the ProSeries head unit, navigate to the ‘RATE’
screen and enter the desired rate. Hit ‘ENTER’ to store
the value. Ignore max speed warnings at this stage.
2
Prepare a suitable area for weighing and setup the
scales. Tare the scales with the same container that
will be used to weight the product. Scales must be
accurate to 2 grams
3
Ensure that the metering unit is free from debris. Close
the trap-door and the bin emptying gate.
4
The metering unit should already be set. If not refer to
the pre-calibration flowchart on previous pages. Note
that it can be hard to adjust the settings once product is
in the bins.
5
Fill the appropriate bin. A minimum depth of 300mm is
required for calibration with normal seeds.
6
Place a suitable container under the metering unit of the
bin to be calibrated.
7
Open the trap door.
8
The calibration process can be in initiated in two ways:
(i) By pressing the appropriate ‘PRIMING SWITCH’
(ii) Via the SETUP menu.
Each of these methods are described in the next few
pages. The PRIMING SWITCH method is easier and
more convenient.
(i) Calibration via PRIMING SWITCH
(recommended)
1
Press and hold the appropriate ‘PRIMING SWITCH’ for
1 second then release.
2
The ProSeries Head Unit display will change as shown.
It is likely the operator will be standing near the priming
switches at this time so will not see the display. It is only
after weighing the dispensed product that the operator
need visit the tractor cab.
26
‘Renovator AS6000’
Calibration
Calibration via PRIMING SWITCH (continued)
3
The appropriate metering unit will run until the PRIMING
SWITCH is pressed again. Product is collected in this
time. The operator is in control of the amount of product
metered out so is able to stop the metering unit when
the collecting container is at a suitable fill level.
4
Weigh the contents of the container. Write down the
amount exactly as displayed. Do not round up or round
down the value measured. Scales must be accurate to
2 grams.
5
Enter the recorded value into the ProSeries head unit as
shown. Press ‘ENTER’ to confirm as requested.
Always use consistant units of measure ie grams or
Kilograms.
6
Press ‘ENTER’ again. The instrument will then calculate
the settings in order to correctly deliver the product. The
‘error’ value is only the difference between the new and
old settings. Subsequent recalibrations with the same
product will only report small differences.
7
Press ‘ENTER’ again to confirm and store the new
settings.
8
Repeat the calibration process. In this case, the ‘Error’
reported will be very small if any. Remember to press
the ‘ENTER’ key to accept the settings. This repeat
calibration is especially important if the metering units
have been adjusted from very different values since the
last time the machine was used.
9
NOTE: If, when presing the priming switch the motors
do not turn but there are no other errors, it could be
that the previous calibration was wrongly entered. The
metering speed is out of the range of the motor speed.
This can be corrected by manually entering a ‘calibration
factor’ as follows:
(i)
Press the ‘SETUP’ menu key.
(ii) Press the key below the wrench icon.
(iii) Use the up down left right arrows to select the
product. The left right arrows will appear when the
cursor is moved up one line from the ‘Cal Fact’.
(iv) Move the arrow to the ‘Cal Fact’ line, type 0.500
and hit the ‘ENTER’ key. (You need to enter the leading
zero as the machine will not accept the ‘.’ as a first
character.)
(v) Hit the ‘ESC’ key to return to the ‘SETUP’ menu or
hit the ‘MAIN’ key to return to the ‘MAIN’ menu.
(vi) Repeat the calibration process from step 1.

Calibration
(ii) Calibration via ‘SETUP’ MENU
1
Ensure that steps 1 to 8 at the top of page 21 have been
carried out prior to actual calibration.
2
Navigate to the ‘SETUP’ screen by pressing the
‘SETUP’ key.
3
Access the ‘Calibration Check’ screen by hitting the key
below the weighing scales icon.
4
From the ‘Calibration Check’ screen select the product
that you want to calibrate by pressing the arrow keys
and confirm by pressing the ‘ENTER’ key.
5
The screen will then prompt, “Enter weight required
here”. Enter the amount required. Hit ‘ENTER’ to
continue Remember to set and keep to consistant units.
Note that this is is only related to calibration and
weighing; it is not related to the sowing rate entered
on the ‘RATE’ screen earlier.
6
The machine will dispense the amount you entered
based on the current settings. If the product or seeding
rates are different from the last time the machine was
used then the amount metered may not be as expected.
If you suspect that the calibration container will overflow
then you can stop metering process by hitting one of the
5 keys along the bottom of the screen.
7
Once the machine has stopped the calibration delivery,
either because it has reached the amount you entered
or you forced it to stop, weigh the contents of the
container. Write down the amount exactly as displayed.
Do not round up or round down the value measured.
Scales must be accurate to 2 grams.
8
Enter the recorded value into the ProSeries head unit as
shown. Press ‘ENTER’ to confirm as requested.
Always use consistant units of measure ie grams or

Airflow & Fan Speed
Airflow and Fan Settings
1.
The return hose for the hydraulic fan must only be connected to the tractor’s
low pressure return circuit.
If this is not carried out, the hydraulic motor seals will fail.
The hose is fitted with a 3/4” female Quick Release Coupling.
A 3/4” male QR Coupling is provided to fit to your tractor.
The return hose is large to prevent back pressure on the motor, case drain and
seal.
2. A higher fan speed is usually required to correctly deliver high rate or heavier product
such as fertilizer from the front box. The airflow to the rear box is reduced by setting
the butterfly valve to the approriate position as shown in the table. If this is not done
the seed delivered to the disc units from the rear box may well bounce out of the seed
slot.

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 it is advisable to completely disconnect the
implement from the tractor, or at the very least disconnect
the alternator before attempting any welding.
2
Hydraulics - Ensure hydraulic couplings (male & female)
are clean before connecting. Dirty couplings will result in
hydraulic oil contamination and hydraulic cylinder seal and
valve damage. This in turn will result in oil leakage.
No filter is fitted to the hydraulic system. If hydraulic
fittings and oil supply are not going to be kept clean it is
recommended that a filter be fitted to prevent hydraulic
cylinder damage.
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 and

Maintenance & Care - Lubrication Instructions
Precautions with Grease
Greases should not be mixed as the structure may be weakened by the
mixes of different types of thickener, which may cause softening and loss of
grease from the bearings by running out.
Your new Duncan

Maintenance Schedule
(Refer also to Summary Chart, above)
1 Bolted Connections
All bolted connections of the machine should be
checked after the first 3 to 5 hours of operation and
retightened if necessary and thereafter at regular
intervals. It is suggested that this is done every 500
hectares or annually, whichever occurs first.
2 Pivot Pins & Ram Clevis
Pivots must be greased regularly (weekly or after every
75Ha) to provide lubrication and flush out any dirt.
3 Framework
The framework structure should be inspected annually
for defects, i.e., cracks in members or welded
connections. The framework should be cleaned prior to
the inspection.
4 Metering Units
Ensure that the metering units are clean and that the
rubber sealing lip is not damaged. The sealing lip
is located along the base of the trap door hinge. A
damaged sealing lip can cause seed delivery problems.

Maintenance Schedule (continued)
5 Fan Hydraulic Motor
The return hose for the hydraulic fan must only be
connected to the tractor’s low pressure return circuit.
If this is not carried out, the hydraulic motor seals will
fail.
The hose is fitted with a 3/4” female Quick Release
Coupling.
A 3/4” male QR Coupling is provided to fit to your
tractor.
The return hose is large to prevent back pressure on
the motor, case drain and seal.
6 Preparing the Machine for Storage.
Locate on a dry level surface. The machine should
be stored wherever possible so the rams are not
supporting any weight. The drive chains should
be lubricated with suitable roller chain lubricant before
prolonged periods of storage.
It is recommended that maintenance be carried out at
the end of the season, giving sufficient time to obtain
spare parts and/or carry out repairs if required.
The seed and fertilizer bins must be completely emptied
and cleaned.
Leave the metering unit trap doors open.
Fit the cover to the bin.
