Use Safety
Lights and Devices
Transport
Machinery Safely
▲ Slow moving tractors, skid steers,
self-propelled equipment, and
towed implements can create a
hazard when driven on public
roads. They are difficult to see,
especially at night.
▲ Flashing warning lights and turn
signals are recommended
whenever driving on public roads.
▲ Comply with state and local laws.
▲ Use towing vehicle and trailer of
adequate size and capacity.
▲ Secure equipment towed on a
trailer with tie downs and chains.
▲ Sudden braking can cause a trailer
to swerve and upset. Reduce
speed if trailer is not equipped with
brakes.
▲ Avoid contact with any over head
utility lines or electrically charged
conductors.
▲ Engage park brake when stopped
on an incline.
Tire Safety
Practice Safe Maintenance
▲ Tire changing can be dangerous
and should be performed by
trained personnel using the
correct tools and equipment.
▲ When inflating tires, use a clip-on
chuck and extension hose long
enough to allow you to stand to
one side and NOT in front of or
over the tire assembly. Use a
safety cage if available.
▲ When removing and installing
wheels, use wheel handling
equipment adequate for the
weight involved.
▲ Understand procedure before doing
work. Use proper tools and
equipment, refer to Operator’s
Manual for additional information.

NTS2507, NTS2509, & NTS2511 NTS Seeder 313-629M
▲ Maximum transport speed for an
attached implement is 20 mph. DO
NOT EXCEED. Never travel at a
speed which does not allow
adequate control of steering and
stopping. Some rough terrains
require a slower speed.
▲ As a guideline, use the following
maximum speed weight ratios for
an attached implement:
20 mph when weight of attached
implement is less than or equal to
the weight of machine towing the
implement.
10 mph when weight of attached
implement exceeds weight of
machine towing implement but
not more than double the weight.
▲ IMPORTANT: Do not tow a load
that is more than double the weight
of the machine towing the load.
▲ Do not grease or oil implement
while it is in operation.
▲ Inspect all parts. Make certain
parts are in good condition &
installed properly.
▲ Replace parts on this machine with
genuine Land Pride parts only. Do
not alter this machine in a way
which will adversely affect its

Hydraulic Plumbing For Tow Option
Refer to Figure 1-5:
!
DANGER
Hydraulic fluid under high pressure can penetrate skin. Wear
protective gloves and safety glasses or goggles when working
with hydraulic systems. Use a piece of cardboard or wood
rather than hands when searching for hydraulic leaks. If
hydraulic fluid is injected into the skin or eyes, it must be
treated by a doctor familiar with this type of injury within a
few hours or gangrene may result. DO NOT DELAY.
The seeder operating/transporting height is controlled by
three re-phasing hydraulic lift cylinders (#1, #2, & #3)
which are plumbed together to operate in unison. The
seeder will not lift properly if re-phasing cylinders are
plumbed incorrectly. See Figure 1-5 to verify plumbing.
Make sure couplings (#4) are attached to hydraulic lift
cylinders (#1 & #3).

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

How the Seeder Works
The following is a brief description of how your
NTS Seeder works.
The power to drive the seed cups comes from the rear
roller turning against the ground while traveling. Power is
transmitted from the rear roller through roller chains to
the seed cups. Seed is metered out of the cups at a rate
proportional to the distance driven. This ensures that the
rate applied in pounds per 1000 square feet or pounds
per acre remains constant as ground speed is varied.
The front rollers cultivates the soil, crush clods, press
down small stones and forms a seedbed. They can be
angled from 0 degrees (non-aggressive) to
approximately 18 degrees (very aggressive).
Grass Seed Rate Chart
Seed Splash Plate
Native Seedbox
Figure 2-10
Filling Native Seedbox
!
WARNING
The condition of soil and type of vegetation will determine
front roller angle. Soil that has already been
worked will not require as aggressive an angle as hard
soil or soil with unwanted vegetation. The all-seeds drive
sprocket can be locked out to allow the seeder to be used
to work the ground without dropping seed. Grass that you
plan to seed over should have the front rollers set
at 0 degrees or at a slight angle to remove thatch.
Seeds drop in front of the rear roller to allow the roller to
firm the soil around the seeds. The rear roller assembly
floats up and down to follow field terrain.
To avoid serious injury or death, always lower rear roller (#3)
and spike rollers to the ground with hydraulic float or 3-point
before working around the seeder, checking seed level, and
filling seedbox. Make sure rear roller and tires are on the
ground so they cannot turn while filling the seedbox. Do not
step or climb on rear roller or tires to fill the seedbox.

2. Release lid latch handle (#5) and open seedbox
lid (#1) until over center latch arms (#2) have locked
in place. Doing this will keep the lid from falling while
filling the box.
The rate seed falls through the small seeds seed cups is
adjustable using the seed rate adjustment lever located
at the front right side of the seeder. Always operate small
seeds seedbox with speed change sprocket on low
range. If using grass seedbox with small seeds seedbox,
use low range tables only to calculate grass seed rates.
For calculating small seed rates, see “Small Seeds Seed
Rate Chart” starting on page 35.
3. Fill seedbox from the rear while standing on the
walkway. Do not step or climb on rear roller (#3) or
tires, if applicable, to fill the seedbox. See “Warning

!
1.
DANGER
All guards and shields must be installed and in good working
condition. Loose clothing caught on rotating sprockets and
chains can pull a person into the machinery. Hands and other
body extremities can become entangled in the machinery.
Unguarded rotating machinery can cause serious crushing
injuries and death.

11. Re-engage main drive sprocket when ready to seed.
12. Do not make turns while seeder is on the ground.
13. Seeding should not be done in wet conditions as soil
will stick to the rollers.
IMPORTANT: The quick couplers must be attached
to the tractor duplex with factory float. Use factory
float to let the seeder down and while planting seed.
WHILE SEEDING, TRACTOR HYDRAULICS FOR
THE SEEDER MUST BE LOCKED INTO
HYDRAULIC FLOAT.

16. After seeding the first 10 or 15 feet, stop and check to
see that the seeder is adjusted properly.
General Operating Instructions
Once you have read the Operator’s Manual, properly
attached the seeder to the tractor, ran through the
Operating Checklist, filled the box with seed, and
calibrated the unit for proper seed rate delivery, it’s time
to do some serious seeding.
The power to drive the NTS seeder comes from the
forward momentum of the tractor. Lock in/out drive
systems transfers that power from the ground driven rear
packer assembly to the various seedboxes through chain
driven sprockets. The seed rate remains constant in
direct proportion to the distance traveled and is affected
very little by actual ground speed.
There are holes on the side of the chain drive guards for
accessing the lock in/out pins for the All Seeds Drive
System and individual seedbox drive systems. You
should lock out the All Seeds Drive System and any
seedbox that is not being used before transporting your
NTS seeder. To disengage a drive system, pull out on the
system lock in/out pin and rotate it one-quarter of a turn in
either direction.
To engage a drive system, rotate the lock in/out pin until
you can feel it pop in. Do not pull out on the pin while
engaging it. You should always engage the All Seeds
Drive System when ready to start seeding. At the same
time, you should check the various seedbox drive
systems to make sure the seedboxes in use are engaged
and the seedboxes not in use are disengaged.
24
NTS2507, NTS2509, & NTS2511 NTS Seeder 313-629M
The front spiked rollers open up the soil profile as they
pass over areas to be seeded. The more the front rollers
are angled, the more aggressive the cultivating action will
be. Seed is then delivered at the precise predetermined
rate through the wind guarded seed drop area between
the front and rear rollers. The rear roller then presses
seed into firm contact with the soil to promote a superbly
high germination rate. Seeding should not be attempted
in wet or muddy conditions.
Now that you understand how it works, it is time to begin
seeding. You may want to make a few passes with the All
Seeds Drive System locked out just to make sure your
front rollers are adjusted to the proper angle, and to
determine correct ground speed for cultivating the soil
profile to your expectations. Ridging of loose soil is
possible when the front rollers are set at an angle and
your ground speed is too fast. Slow your ground speed to
eliminate ridging. Re-engage the All Seeds Drive System
once you are satisfied that the proper amount of soil
opening action is being achieved.
You should already have removed any large stones or
obstacles from the area you plan to seed. Line the tractor
up for the first pass and choose a tractor gear selection
that will deliver a ground speed of approximately
3-5 mph. Lower the seeder slowly to the ground and
begin driving forward, slowly at first until you get
comfortable with what you are doing. As you approach
the end of the pass you are seeding, slow down and
come to a stop while simultaneously raising the seeder
off of the ground. With the seeder raised, line up for your
next pass and repeat the process. Finish seeding by
making back and forth passes across the turnaround
areas.
If you expect to develop a uniform seeding pattern, look
back often and avoid making turns with your seeder on
the ground. The more experienced you become the
better you will get at developing beautiful seed plots and
beautiful lawns.
Whenever you are done seeding always clean the seeder
out and perform all maintenance prescribed in the
Operator’s Manual. Never leave seed stored in the
hopper for prolonged periods. Never dismount your
tractor without first coming to a full stop, turning off the
tractor, and setting the park brake. Never allow riders on
the tractor when working with any rear mounted
implement installed.
With a little practice you should get very good at
developing lush green stands of grass with your Land
Pride NTS Seeder.

Grass Seed High/Low Range Set-up
Low Range Set-up
The NTS Seeder is designed with two drive speeds to
accommodate different grass seed sizes and dispersal
rates. The two drive speeds are high range (fast speed)
and low range (slow speed). Use seed rate charts
beginning on page 30 to determine which range is correct
for the seed you are planting. Some seeds work with both
ranges.

Section 4: Grass Seed Rate Adjustment
Grass Seed Cup Gate Setting
Refer to Figure 4-3:
Each seed cup is equipped with a four-position gate. The
highest gate handle position shown is for smaller seeds,
the second and third positions are for larger seeds. The
forth position (handle rotated fully down below the bottom
tab) sets the gate at wide open to allow complete cleanout of seed cup.
Seed rate charts are based on the gate handle being set
in the highest position. Typically, most seeds will use the
highest gate handle position. If using larger seed and the
seed is not discharging properly, try using one of the
other two gate handle positions.
IMPORTANT: Most applications for this seeder
require the gate handle be placed in the highest
position.
Make Sure all gate handles are in the same position
before seeding.
Do Not set gate handles in the fourth position with
seed rate adjustment lever to the widest open
position (See Figure 4-4 on page 29) with seed in the
box unless complete clean out is desired.
NOTE: Always disengage lock in/out pin (#2) shown
in Figure 3-5 on page 26 when you want to stop
seed cups from discharging product.
39025
NOTE: To determine seed rates for seeds not listed
in the charts, compare weight and size to those
listed and use a similar setting. Follow steps 1 to 4
to calibrate seed rate.
1.
Use seed rate charts beginning on page 30 to
determine correct seeding rate and adjustments:
a. Decide which drive range is required (low or high
range). If necessary, change speed change
sprocket to accommodate correct speed range.
Refer to “Grass Seed High/Low Range Set-up”
on page 27.
b. Refer to Figure 4-4 on page 29: Move seed rate
adjustment lever to cup setting number obtained
from the seed rate charts. For best results, first
move adjustment lever all the way to the left and
then to the desired setting.
• Increase setting if seed is lighter than average.
• Decrease setting if seed is heavier than
average.
2. Refer to Figure 3-5 on page 26: Disengage small
seeds seedbox with lock in/out pin (#1) and native
seedbox with lock in/out pin (#3).
3. Complete the following procedure to calibrate
dispersal rate for your specific seed.
a. Place several pounds of seed over three of the
seed cups at the outboard end of the seeder. Do
not allow any of the seed to reach other cups.
b. Lower seeder frame onto support blocks that will
support the rear roller just above ground level.
NOTE: Rotate rear roller by grasping the roller at
the bottom and pulling away from the seeder and
pushing toward the seeder at the top of the roller.
c. Rotate rear roller to make sure drive system is
working properly and seed cups are free from
foreign matter.
d. Place a drop cloth under the seeder to collect all
of the seeds that are metered out.
e. Make sure the three seed cups have plenty of
seed falling into them and not in the other cups.

IMPORTANT: Seed rates provided in the charts may
be inconsistent with actual planting rates due to
seed size, weight, treatment, moisture content, ratio
of inert material to seed, different seed mixtures,
humidity, & ground preparation. Minor adjustments
to the cup setting may be needed to compensate.

Section 4: Grass Seed Rate Adjustment
g. Weigh seed which has been metered out.
• If weight is in pounds, divide total weight of
seed metered out by 3 to get the number of
pounds metered by each seed cup.
• If weight is in ounces, divide total weight of
seed metered out by 48 to get number of
pounds metered by each seed cup.
h. Next, multiply number of pounds per cup by
number of cups on your seeder to arrive at total
pounds per 1000 sq. ft. or pounds per 1/10 acre.
Refer to “Specifications & Capacities” on
page 50 to determine number of seed cups.
i. If calculations are based on 1/10 acre, multiply
total pounds by 10 to arrive at pounds per acre.
j. If this figure (total pounds per 1000 sq. ft. or acre)
is different than desired, then readjust your seed
cup adjustment lever accordingly.
4. You may want to repeat calibration procedure if
results of your calibration vary greatly from
suggested settings in the chart.

Figure 4-4
IMPORTANT: Remember, field and seed conditions
will affect seeding rates. Check amount of seed
being using by noting acres or square feet seeded,
amount of seed added to the seeder, and level of
seed in the seedbox. It may be necessary to make
minor adjustments to the seeding rate if the seeder
has been accurately calibrated and is seeding more
or less seed than desired.
IMPORTANT: Do Not operate seed rate adjustment
lever at -0- setting. Seed cup damage may occur.
Do Not set door handles and seed rate adjustment
lever to the widest open position with seed in the box
unless complete clean out is desired.

Section 5: Small Seed Rate Adjustment
High/Low Range Sprocket Set-up
The small seed drive is associated with low range sprocket
only. If speed change sprocket is set for high range
operation, rearrange sprocket so that the 19 tooth
sprocket is located behind the 35 tooth sprocket. Refer to
“Low Range Set-up” on page 27.
Small Seeds Seed Rate Adjustment
Refer to Figure 5-1:
NOTE: Seeding rates will vary greatly with variations
in seed size, seed treatment, weight of seed, soil
surface condition, and rear roller slippage. Minor
adjustments to the seed rate adjustment lever may
be necessary. We recommend that you test and
adjust your NTS Seeder using the procedures listed
below to help ensure an accurate seeding rate.
1.
Use seed rate charts on page 35 to determine
seeding rate for the seed you will be planting.
2. See note above. Move seed rate adjustment lever to
cup setting number obtained from the seed rate
charts. For best results, first move adjustment lever
all the way to the left and then to the desired setting.
• Increase setting if seed is lighter than average.
• Decrease setting if seed is heavier than average.
3. Refer to Figure 3-5 on page 26: Engage small seeds
seedbox with pin (#1). If applicable, disengage grass
seedbox with pin (#2) and native seedbox with pin
(#3).
4. Complete the following procedure to calibrate
dispersal rate for your specific seed.
a. Place several pounds of seed over three of the
seed cups at the outboard end of the NTS Seeder.
Do not allow an y of the seed to reach other cups.
g. Weigh the seed which has been metered out and
divide that weight by three to get the number of
pounds metered by each seed cup. If your weight
is in ounces, divide the weight by 48 to get the
number of pounds metered by each seed cup.
h. Next, multiply number of pounds per cup by
number of cups on your seeder to arrive at total
pounds per 1000 sq. ft. or pounds per 1/10 acre.
i. If calculations are based on 1/10 acre, multiply
total pounds by 10 to arrive at total pounds per
acre. If this figure (total pounds) is different than
desired, then readjust your seed cup adjustment
lever accordingly.
5. You may want to repeat calibration procedure if
results of your calibration vary greatly from
suggested settings in the chart.
IMPORTANT: Remember, field conditions will affect
seeding rates. When seeding, check amount of seed
you are using by noting acres or square feet seeded,
amount of seed added to the seeder, and level of
seed in the seedbox.
If you have accurately calibrated the seeder for your
seed and you suspect that you are seeding more or
less seed than desired, you may need to adjust the
seed rate adjustment lever slightly more/less to
compensate.
IMPORTANT: Never operate small seeds seedbox
with seed rate adjustment lever set at 0. Always
remove detent pin (#1) shown in Figure 3-5 on page
26 to stop seed cups from turning. Allowing any of
the seed cups to turn with the adjustment lever set
at 0 will damage the cups.

b. Pull seed tubes out of these three drops.
c. Lower seeder frame onto support blocks that will
support rear roller just above ground level.
NOTE: Rotate rear roller by grasping roller at the
bottom and pulling away from the seeder and
pushing toward the seeder at the top of the roller.

Seed Cup
d. Rotate rear roller to make sure drive system is
working properly and that the feed cups are free
from foreign matter.
e. Place a container under the three seed tubes to
gather seed as it is metered.
f. Rotate rear roller the number of rotations noted in
table above.Check the three feed cups to make
sure each cup has plenty of seed coming into it.

2. Partition off the outer end of the box so that seed can
be placed only over three discharge openings.
Refer to Figure 6-1 and Native Seed Rate Chart on
page 39:
3. To adjust your seeding rate, first find the desired
pounds/acre on the “Native Seed Rate Chart” on
page 39. Determine which drive sprocket and proper
gearbox drive type 1, 2, 3, or 4 are required. Change
drive sprocket and set drive type as follows:
a. Loosen chain idler nut and remove drive chain
from drive sprocket.

8. Make sure the three discharge openings have plenty
of seed and no other openings are receiving seed.
c. Replace drive sprocket with the selected drive
sprocket. (Sprockets are stored in front of and
above the gearbox.)
a. Weigh the seed which has been metered out and
divide that weight by three to get the number of
pounds metered by each seed cup. If the total
metered weight for 3 cups is in ounces, divide that
weight by 48 to get the number of pounds metered
by each seed cup.
d. Reinstall drive chain and adjust chain take-up.
Refer to “Native Grass Seeds Gearbox Drive
Chain (#5)” on page 42 for detailed instructions.
b. Next, multiply number of pounds per cup by
number of cups on your seeder to arrive at total
pounds per 1000 sq. ft. or pounds per 1/10 acre.
e. Set gearbox drive handle to the proper drive type.
c. If calculations are based on 1/10 acre, multiply
total pounds per 1/10 acre by 10 to arrive at total
pounds per acre.
b. Loosen the drive sprocket’s two set screws and
remove sprocket.
4. Refer to Figure 3-5 on page 26: Engage native
seedbox with lock in/out pin (#3. If applicable,
disengage small seeds seedbox with lock in/out
pin (#1) and grass seedbox with lock in/out pin (#2).
5. Rotate drive roller assembly to verify that the drive
system is working properly and that the discharge
openings are free from foreign matter.
6. Place a container under the three discharge
openings to gather all the seeds as they are metered.
7.
Chain Idler Nut
d. If this figure (total pounds per 1000 sq. ft. or per
acre) is different than desired, then change
gearbox drive type and/or drive sprocket.
9. You may want to repeat calibration procedure if the
results of your calibration vary greatly from the
suggested settings in the chart.
Rotate drive roller assembly as follows:
NTS2507: 57 rotations for 1,000 sq. feet.
255.2 rotations for 1/10 of an acre.
NTS2509: 48 rotations for 1,000 sq. feet.

Notes:
1. List of native seeds vary from region to region. See your local county extension office for list of native seeds in your region.
2. Seeding rates vary greatly with variations in types of seeds being seeded. The seed rate chart above is based on a seed mix of
5.7# of pure live seed per 11.1# of bulk. The pure live seed mix was Big Blue -1.5#, Little Blue -.8#, Side Oats Grama -.6#,
Western Wheat Grass -1#, Switch Grass -.3#, and Indian Grass - 1.5#.
3. Factors which will affect seeding rates are: weight, size, relative humidity, and moisture content of the seed, ratio of inert material
to seed, different proportions of seed types affecting density, and ground preparation.
4. To help insure an accurate seeding rate, Land Pride recommends that you test and adjust your seeder per the seed rate
calibration procedures provided on page 38.

Figure 3-5
Rear Packer Roller
1.
Refer to Figure 3-5 on page 44:
The rear packer roller assembly should be free to float up
and down to follow the field terrain. The rear roller
wheels (#3) should turn freely. If the assembly does not
float or the wheels do not turn, investigate and remove
the cause.
2. With tractor control lever, raise seeder and roller
wheels (#3) high enough to place support blocks (#4)
under both ends of the rear packer roller.
The rear roller wheels (#3) will wear as they slip against
on another creating gaps between the roller wheels that
should be removed. Also, the paint between the roller
wheels will wear off in the first 20 hours of operation
creating gaps that should also be removed.
4. Place solid support blocks (#4) under the far
left-hand bearing support (shown) and under the far
right-hand skid shoe (not shown).
IMPORTANT: The gap between rollers wheels (#3)
should be removed after the first 10 to 20 hours of
operation and as needed thereafter.
IMPORTANT: Use only support blocks (#4 & #5) that
are made of solid hard wood or steel. Do not use
concrete blocks. Support blocks must be tall enough
to support spiked roller clamps (#2) above ground
and must also allow roller wheels (#3) and roller
clamps (#2) to turn freely.

Cleaning and Storing
39026
It is good practice to clean any dirt and excess grease off
the machine that may have accumulated on the seeder
and moving parts at the end of each working season or
when your seeder will not be used for several days.
1.
Be sure all seedboxes are completely cleaned before
storing. It is best to do this while still hooked to the
tractor.
a. Scoop out any large quantities of seed left in the
box. Finish by using a small broom or vacuum
sweeper.
b. Refer to Figure 8-6: Move grass seed rate
adjustment lever all the way to the left (100) to fully
open fluted seed cups.
c. Refer to Figure 8-7: On all grass seed cups, lower
four position door handles to the lowest position.
d. Refer to Figure 8-8: Move small seeds rate
adjustment lever all the way to the right (100) to
fully open fluted seed cups.
Grass Seed Rate Adjustment Lever:
DO NOT operate seeder with seed rate adjustment
lever set on 0.
Grass Seed Rate Adjustment
Figure 8-6
39025
Four-Position Door Handle
Shown in it Highest Position
e. Run seeder over the ground to power the fluted
seed cups and to remove out-of-reach seeds.
f. Check drop tubes to make sure they are not
clogged with seeds. Clean any drop tube that may
have seeds plugged in them.
g. Make a final sweep or vacuum of the fluted seed
cups to finish the cleaning job.
h. Seasonally, rinse each seed cup thoroughly with
water spray from a garden hose. Allow seed cups
to air dry completely before putting seeder back
into service.
To clean out seed, fully open gate by rotating door
handle to this position. DO NOT open cups to the
widest position with seed in the box unless complete
clean out is desired.
Grass Seed Cup
Figure 8-7
2. Clean off all dirt and grease. Make sure rollers are
clean of all dirt, trash, and debris.
39027
3. Oil the square bore of the seed cup drive sprocket
hub to prevent seizing as noted under Lubrication
Points on page 47.
4. Lubricate all grease fittings and roller chains as noted
under Lubrication Points starting on page 47.
5. When in storage, lower the seeder with rollers on a
board or hard surface.
Small Seeds Seed Cup
6. Repaint parts where paint is worn or scratched to
prevent rust.
7.
Replace all damaged or missing decals.
8. Store seeder inside if possible. Inside storage will
reduce maintenance and make for a longer seeder
life.
9. Inspect seeder for loose, damaged, or worn parts
and adjust or replace if needed with genuine Land
Pride parts. Do not alter Land Pride equipment.
Altering equipment can hinder performance and/or
cause damage to the equipment.
