Safety
Chemicals
• Use extreme care when cleaning, filling or
making adjustments.
• Always read granular chemical or treated seed
manufacturer’s warning labels carefully and
remember them.
• Wear close fitting clothing and appropriate personal
protective equipment for the job as specified by the
chemical and/or seed manufacturer.
• Always wear safety goggles, breathing
apparatus and gloves when handling with granular
chemical or treated seed.
• Do not feed any treated seed to livestock. Treated
seed is poisonous and may cause harm to persons
or livestock.
• Wash exposed skin immediately - do not leave
chemicals on your skin.

Safety
Transporting
• Be aware of the height, length and width of
implement. Make turns carefully and be aware of
obstacles and overhead electrical lines.
• Empty tanks before transporting. Do Not Exceed 20
M.P.H. (32 kph) with an empty air cart.
• Use an agricultural tractor that is large enough with
sufficient braking capacity so that the weight of the
loaded equipment towed does not exceed 1.5 times
the weight of the tractor.
• Use flashing amber warning lights, turn signals and
SMV emblems when on public roads.
• Do not transport in poor visibility.
• The slow moving vehicle (SMV) emblem and
reflectors must be secured and be visible on the
machine for transport.
• Avoid soft surfaces, the additional wing weight on
the centre wheels could cause the machine to sink.
• Ensure safety chain is attached correctly to the
towing vehicle and the hitch of the air cart.
• Check that wings are firmly seated in transport wing
stops, and lock pins installed.
• Secure transport locks on depth control cylinders.
• Be familiar with and adhere to local laws.
Hydraulics
• Do not search for high pressure hydraulic leaks
without hand and face protection. A tiny, almost
invisible leak can penetrate skin, thereby requiring
immediate medical attention.
• Use cardboard or wood to detect leaks - never your
hands.
• Double check that all is clear before operating
hydraulics.
• Never remove hydraulic hoses or ends with machine
elevated. Relieve hydraulic pressure before
disconnecting hydraulic hoses or ends.
• Maintain proper hydraulic fluid levels.
• Keep all connectors clean for positive connections.
• Ensure all fittings and hoses are in good condition.
• Do not stand under wings.

9s Series Air Cart
Introduction
The MORRIS 9s Series Air Cart represents the latest
in Air Cart design technology. There are three sizes
available, a 240 bushel (8,730 liters) cart, a 252 bushel
(9,130 liters) cart and a 300 bushel (10,910 liters) cart
with hydraulic fan drive. The carts incorporate a four
wheel, wide-stance high clearance frame. The high
clearance frame gives easy access to the metering
wheels and cleanout. The 9240 and 9300 carts have a
60:40 tank split. The 9252 cart has a 30:30:40 tank split.
The tank lids are easily accessed by the convenient
stairs and tank walk-through.
Each tank has it’s own metering system and metering
drive. Included with the unit is a sample collector box
that an operator can use to confirm seeding rates. The
meter drives are positive, convenient, simple to set
and are ground driven through an electric clutch. The
metering system incorporates spiral fluted wheels. The
size of the metering wheel is matched to the number
of outlets on the secondary divider giving the best in
accuracy. The spiral fluted metering wheels combined
with the multi-range transmission allows a full range
of products like Canola to peas to be seeded without
having to change the metering wheels.
The Air Cart comes equipped with a monitor that senses
both bin levels, motion of both metering shafts and fan
speed. It also gives ground speed and provides an
acremeter.
High quality 2 1/2” (64 mm) diameter hose is standard
equipment for the distribution system. The patented
flat fan divider, which is matched in size to the metering
wheel, ensures final accurate distribution of the product.

Metering System
The 9s Series Air Cart uses a combination of metering
wheels and spacers shown below. The metering
wheel is individually sized to correspond to the number
of outlets at the connected secondary head and the
spacers make up the space between the wheel and the
body. Some openings may be blanked off depending
on the number of secondary divider heads used on the
seeding tool.
The 9s Series Air Cart can meter all types of seeds and
fertilizers by simply adjusting the slider plates. See
“Slider Settings” for more details.
Different rates are easily obtained using the selection of
quick change sprockets that attach to either of the two
meter transmissions.
Note: Before putting product into the tanks check
the following:
(a) The slider plates are set correctly for product
being applied.
(b)The Clean-out doors are fully closed and sealed.
(c)The plastic bag covering the fan is removed.
Important
Ensure distribution system is balanced. It is
very important that head outlets only vary by
one . (i.e. use only 7 and 8 together, 8 and 9
together, 9 and 10 together)
Note: The number of outlets on the divider head
must match the metering wheel size.

For Accurate distribution the secondary hoses have to be
arranged by length symmetrically about the centre line.
Hot water is the only acceptable lubricant for
the installation of the secondary hose.
The longest hoses have to be in the centre of the
divider head. These hoses would normally feed the
openers furthest away from the head.
The supplier advised MORRIS that WD-40 or any
other lubricant (i.e. liquid detergent) will have a
negative effect on the chemical stability of the
hose, resulting in the degradation and failure of
the hose due to Environmental Stress Cracking.
• Ensure that the secondary hoses 15/16” (24 mm)
diameter do not run higher than 3” (76 mm) above
the height of the flat fan divider head.
• Allow an extra 3” (76 mm) of hose before cutting
secondary hose for fitting in the seed boot.
• Always ensure that the secondary hoses are
sufficiently long to accommodate tripping of trips.
Important
• Avoid sharp bends in any of the hoses.
• Check for pinch points and clearances when folding
in and out of transport.

Slider Setting
The slider plates come in 4 different sizes. Each slider
plate matches a specific metering wheel.
Note: The slider plates must match the metering
wheel size.
The slider plates have three positions to allow all types
of seeds and fertilizers to be metered.
The slider plate positions are closed, open, and
removed as indicated on diagrams. (See next page)
• Position slider as indicated below and tighten nut to
hold slider tightly in place.
• Position cover plate as indicated below and tighten
wing nuts to hold cover plate in place.
Note: For Oats or Coarse Grains, if it appears
bridging is occurring, remove sliders and
recalibrate.
Important
When adjusting the sliders to the closed position
follow the procedures below:
1) Locate the key-way in the metering wheel. Rotate
shaft until high spot is located, this is the key-way
location. Mark shaft for future reference.
2) Rotate metering shaft until key-way is in location
shown below.
3)Keep the slider mounting plate flat on the
metering body surface. See diagram A.
If the slider is tipped up when set to the closed
position interference with the metering wheel will
occur.
Note: In the closed position there is a gap of
.070” (1.778 mm) between the metering
wheel and the top edge of the slider plate.

Acre Tally
To convert the acre tally reading (T) into the actual acres
seeded turn to page 5-34 (page 11-2 for metric) to get
the acre tally factor (F) for the Air Cart/Seeding Tool
width being used. Take the acre tally reading (T) and
multiply it by the acre tally factor (F) to get the actual
acres seeded.
T x F = Actual Acres Seeded
Example: A 9240 with a 41 foot (12.5 m) seeding tool
has an acre tally reading (T) of 100. The
acre tally factor (F) on Page 5-34 is 6.59 for
acres or Page 11-2 is 2.67 for hectares.
T x F = Actual Acres Seeded

e) Tire manufacturer (Good-Year versus Firestone)
Note: The values used for monitor PPM values
and tire size sprockets is based upon the
tire circumference of Good-Year tires at
proper pressure with half full tanks in normal
working field conditions.
To determine tire sprocket for other tires not listed in the
chart or to check the actual tire circumference use the
following equation:
• The tire circumference should be checked under
normal field conditions with tanks half full.
• Mark tire and starting point.
• Drive air cart one revolution of tire.
• Mark ending point.
• Measure distance from starting point to ending point
to get the rolling circumference of the tire.

The charts should only be used as a guide. Specific
rates can be achieved by using the rate check method
as outlined under “Rate Calibration”.
To determine a seed/fertilizer rate from the chart:
• Go to the desired rate along the line marked
“Standard” of a specific graph. (i.e. 95 lbs/acre of
wheat)
• Go straight up from that point to where that line is
intersected by the graph. This will give the sprocket
size required to give the particular rate chosen.
• At this intersection go straight across to the vertical
line of the graph. This will give the sprocket size
required to give the particular rate chosen. (i.e. 95
lbs/acre of wheat requires a 29 tooth sprocket)

Extra Low Rates
Although the charts show a minimum rate of 35 lbs.
per acre for fertilizer and 20 lbs. per acre for seed,
sometimes this is not low enough, especially when
product is being metered from both tanks.
METERSHAFT SPROCKET
Rates under the values mentioned can be achieved by
replacing the standard 25 tooth sprocket on the front of
the transmission with either a 35 or 40 tooth sprocket.
The rates obtained when using the 35 and 40 tooth
sprocket are shown on the rate charts beside the
respective size sprocket.
When both tanks are being used to meter the same
product without the Banding Kit, then the 25 tooth
sprocket on each transmission must be changed. Now
both transmissions will have the same size metershaft
sprocket.
QUICK CHANGE SPROCKET
If the Banding Kit is installed, then only the 25 tooth
sprocket on the front or rear transmission needs to be
changed.
The same metering chain can be used with these larger
sprockets up to a certain size of quick change sprocket.
To determine a rate from the chart:
• Go to the desired rate along the line next to the size
of metershaft sprocket used.
R a te
• Go straight up from that point to where that line is
intersected by the graph line of the particular product
being metered.
• At this intersection go straight across to the vertical
line of the graph. This will give the sprocket size
required to give the particular rate chosen.
• Change the quick change sprocket and repeat the
rate check to confirm the seed rate.
• Repeat the above procedure for the other tank.

Operation
Rate Calibration
The practice of doing a rate calibration is strongly
recommended as it will confirm the actual amounts of
product being put into the ground.
Note: The fan must not be running when a rate
check is performed.
Checking the rate on the 9s Series Air Cart is very
simple.
The following procedure is one that should be followed
for every rate calibration or change of product.
BEFORE FILLING TANK
- ENSURE PROPER SLIDER CLEARANCE IS SET FOR
EACH METER WHEEL
- ENSURE TANK CLEANOUT DOOR IS FULLY CLOSED.
• Refer to calibration chart for the correct number of
turns of the crank. (See page 5-35 for imperial and
page 11-2 for metric charts.)
BEFORE APPLYING PRODUCT
- SET RATE ACCORDING TO THE PROCEDURE AND
RATE CHART DESCRIBED IN THE OPERATORS MANUAL.
- TAKE A SAMPLE AND ADJUST THE RATE, IF
NECESSARY.
• Remove the bottom of the collector.
AIR LEAKS AFFECT METERING ACCURACY
- ENSURE ALL SEALS ARE PROPERLY POSITIONED
AND ALL LIDS ARE TIGHTLY CLOSED.
• Remove the metering chain from the transmission
that is not being checked.
N19025
• Check that the desired rate change sprocket is
installed in the transmission.
• Turn the crank until material begins to fall through
the collector body.
FOR FINE SEEDS ONLY:
POSITION OF
COVER
PLATE
FOR ALL OTHER SEEDS:
POSITION OF
COVER
PLATE
• Slide rate check box on the collector body.
• Turn the crank in direction of the arrow (Counter
Clockwise) the required number of turns.
Note: Incorrect rates will occur if crank is rotated
clockwise.
REFER TO OWNER’S MANUAL FOR PROPER SLIDER SETTING
N29063
COLLECTOR
BOTTOM
For Fine Seeds it is recommended to take a
large sample. Typically to take a sample for 1/2
acre (1/4 hectare) or 1 acre (1/2 hectare).
Example:
For 1/2 acre sample for a 41 ft. wide seeding
unit with 23.1 x 26 AWT tires on Cart:
From the chart on page 5-34
Turns required for 1/10 acre = 8.50
Turns required for 1/2 acre = 8.50 x 5 = 42.5
Rate = lbs/acre
= 1/2 acre sample weight (lbs.) x 2
Collector Bottom
CRANK
From the chart on page 11-2
Turns required for 1/10 hectare = 20.99
Turns required for 1/4 hectare = 20.99 x 2.5 = 52.48
Turns required for 1/2 hectare = 20.99 x 5 = 104.95
Rate = kg/hectare
= 1/4 hectare sample weight (kg) x 4
= 1/2 hectare sample weight (kg) x 2
5-32
January 2015
9s Series Air Cart
Operation
Rate Calibration - Continued
• Weigh the sample by using tarp straps to hook rate
check box to spring scale.
Note: Remember to subtract the weight of the rate
check box from the total sample weight.
• Check this rate against rate required.
For 1/10 acre sample:
Rate = lbs/acre = Sample Weight (lbs) x 10
For 1/10 hectare sample:
Rate = kg/ha = Sample Weight (kg) x 10
• If a different rate is required then increase or
decrease the size of the rate change sprocket.
Increasing the sprocket size will increase the rate
and vice versa.
RATE CHECK BOX
• Replace the bottom of the collector.
Note: Arrow directions on the collector bottom
must point in the same direction as the ones
on the collector body.
• Follow the above procedure to check the rate of the
other tank.
SCALE
Alternative Rate Calibration
An alternate rate calibration method takes into account
wheel sinkage and variations in tire circumference.
See the Monitor Section 6 (Application Rate). Instead
of turning the calibration crank, the metering drive clutch
is engaged and the seeder is pulled through a distance
that equals at least 1/10 of an acre (1/10 hectare).
Note: Fan should not be running for either rate
check method.

Operation
Seeding Fine Seeds (Canola, Mustard, etc.)
When seeding fine seeds such as canola or mustard,
the slow speed transmission has to be engaged to
ensure the low rates required for these products.
Note: Seed must be placed in the front tank.
The slow speed transmission is incorporated in the
FRONT Posi-Drive Transmission.
• To engage the slow speed, remove the large hairpin
from the front shaft and install through the sleeve
and shaft located at the rear of the transmission.
HAIRPIN LOCATION FOR:
Note: Shaft will have to be rotated to align holes
for pin insertion.
• To disengage the slow speed, reverse the above
procedure.
DIRECT
DRIVE
• Rate checks can be performed the same way as for
other seeds.
SLOW SPEED
DRIVE
N27864
• Usually it is necessary to reduce the fan rpm when
seeding fine seeds. See Fan Speed for specific fan
speeds.
HAIRPIN
Applying Inoculant
When inoculant is applied at the time of seeding, then
once the Air Cart has been filled, the fill-lids should be
left open and the fan run for 5-10 minutes at full rpm to
dry the seed.
Calibration must be done after the seed is dried,
otherwise the calibration will be incorrect.
9s Series Air Cart Note: If the seed is not dried then the seed will have
a tendency to bridge and not meter into the
air stream.
January 2015

Operation
Hydraulic Fan Drive
The piston type orbit motor on the fan requires tractor to
have either a load sensing hydraulic system or a closed
center hydraulic system with flow control.
The flow required is 18 U.S. gpm (68 liters) for the 12 cc
motor at a pressure of 2,750 p.s.i. (18,960 kPa) However,
smaller flows can be used depending on the product
being metered.
Note: An additional 6 gpm (23 liters/min) is required
for the VRT system.
For correct operation of the fan the hydraulic motor must
be coupled to the priority valve (if tractor is so equipped)
in the hydraulic valve bank.
Check with the tractor manual or manufacturer to
determine if or which spool is a “priority valve”.
Speed fluctuations will result if the fan is not connected
to the priority valve if hydraulic system is equipped with
a priority valve.
Orbit Motor Drive
Ensure couplers are free of dirt and are clean when
connecting the fan hydraulics to the tractor.
Fan speed is adjusted by increasing the amount of oil
being delivered to the motor by adjusting the respective
flow control valve until the desired rpm is displayed on
the monitor.
Note: There is a one-way check valve installed in the
hydraulic circuit. If the fan does not rotate,
then move hydraulic lever in the opposite
direction; this will engage the fan. This valve
prevents damage to the hydraulic systems
when the fan is shut OFF, by allowing the fan
to freewheel.
IMPORTANT
Run hydraulic fan drive at lowest rpm possible
(1,000-2,000) for 5-10 minutes before operating
at set rpm. This is required to warm up the
hydraulic fluid. Cold hydraulic fluid will cause
pressure spikes in the system that will damage
the case drain seal in the orbit motor.
A piston motor creates leakage past the internal
components for lubrication. This oil needs to go back
to the oil reservoir at the lowest pressure possible. The
motor has a 3/8” diameter case drain line. This line must
be connected directly into the tractor hydraulic reservoir
to ensure that there is zero back pressure in the drain
line; otherwise damage will result to the motor.

Operation
Fan Speed
Adequate air volume is necessary at all times to carry the
product in the air stream. Air volume can be controlled
by adjusting hydraulic oil flow on hydraulic fan drives
or adjusting engine speed on engine fan drive models.
Note: It is recommended that after a rain or dew the
fan be run two to three minutes to expel any
moisture in the system.
Air volume hence fan speed requirements will vary with:
(a) Ground speed
(b) Metering rate
(c) Number of primary runs
(d) Width of machine
(e) Density and size of material
Important
Excessive fan speed can cause seed damage, seed
bouncing and premature wear of the system.
Keep fan impeller blades clean at all times.
Generally fan speed is adequate if product flows through
the hoses without surging and the hoses empty quickly
and evenly when the system shuts down.
The table lists suggested minimum fan speeds for
certain products. The table should be used only as
a guide. If plugging or surging occurs increase the fan
speed to eliminate the problem.
Note: Once fan speed is properly set, be sure
to adjust the monitor fan alarm setting
accordingly. See Monitor Section “Monitor
Programing”.

Operating Guidelines
There are a number of areas that can cause problems
when seeding. Listed below are specific points that
should be addressed at all times. Following these
guidelines will ensure better crop emergence and
consequently the potential for better yields.
An improperly levelled seeding tool cause uneven depth
which could result in poor emergence.
It is important that the seeding tool is levelled both side
to side and front to back.
Check Tire Pressures
• Ensure all tires are inflated to their specified pressure.
Incorrect tire pressure can cause depth variations.
Side to Side Level
Level Seeding Tool Side to Side
• Check the depth of each shovel on the back row.
• Adjust side to side level as necessary. See seeding
tool manual for more details.
Level Seeding Tool Front to Rear
• Poor front to rear levelling causes ridging as shown.
• Check the depth of two adjacent shanks normally
one on the front row and one on the rear row.
Front to Back Level
• Adjust level as necessary. See seeding tool manual
for more details.
Worn Seeding Tool Parts
• Shanks that are bent cause uneven depth and they
should be repaired or replaced.
• Trip mechanisms that are worn can also cause poor
depth control and any worn parts should be repaired
or replaced.
Ridging Front to Back
Packing
• Packing behind the seeding unit is strongly
recommended. This improves germination and helps
reduce moisture loss and erosion.
• In wet conditions the head land should be done last
to prevent over packing.
Mounted Packers

Operation
Operating Guidelines - Continued
Turning
• Avoid sharp turns. Backing up of the outer wings
with the seeding tool in the ground has a tendency
to plug the seed boot with soil.
• Raise seed boots fully before making sharp turns or
backing machine.
Seed Rate Settings
Note: It is strongly recommended to consult local
agricultural extension offices for allowable
product rates, which are dependent on soil
moisture and type.
• Remove any caked-on material from sliders and
metering wheels.
• Ensure all sliders are properly set and wheels turn
freely.
• Check product rates carefully by performing a
calibration check.
Note: If equipped with a granular tank, the lines
must be blocked off when not in use.
Fertilizer Application
• Avoid using fertilizers that absorb moisture readily,
especially during periods of high humidity.
• Also avoid fertilizers that contain a high percentage
of fine dust, as these materials can plug metering
wheels and coat the inside of seed distribution
system.
Fan Setting
• Run fan at recommended speed. If plugging or
surging occurs increase the fan speed to eliminate
the problem.
• Allow tractor hydraulic oil to warm-up thoroughly prior
to seeding. Cold oil will cause slower fan speeds
(Hydraulic driven fan).
Product Application
• Control product application with the clutch switch in
tractor.
• Have machine moving forward before lowering seed
boots to avoid plugging.
Note: Do not attempt to meter product when fan is
not running. Damage to the metering wheels
may occur.
• To prevent skipping, allow 15 feet (5 m) of forward
travel to ensure air system has delivered product to
seed boots.

January 2015
9s Series Air Cart
Operation
Operating Guidelines - Continued
Adjustments and Operational Checks
• When changing fields and periodically throughout
the day the seeding tool should be checked for level
and depth and the seed boots for blockage.
Important
Checking Seed Flow
The following procedure should be implemented
throughout the day typically at each fill of the Air Cart:
• Raise the seeding tool out of the ground.
• With the fan running turn the crank on the rear
transmission 4 or 5 turns.
Check Metering Wheel keyways in the
event the primary lines plug.
Keyways may shear if the collector becomes
plugged.
• Seed and/or fertilizer should appear at each outlet
on the ground.
• If no seed or fertilizer appears on the ground at any
of the openers check for hose blockage in both the
15/16” (24 mm) diameter secondary and the 2 1/2”
(64 mm) diameter primary hose, as well as in the flat
fan divider.
• See Trouble Shooting Section for possible causes of
the blockage.
Moisture Alert
Note : Check Seed Flow as described above, after
running fan for 5 minutes.
• Whenever Air Cart has been standing for an hour
or more during period of high humidity or damp,
rainy days, or after sitting overnight, run fan at
recommended rpm, with machine stationary for 5
minutes.
Air Leaks
It is imperative that no air leaks occur in the Air Cart
tank as even the smallest air leak from the lid will lead
to material bridging in the tank thereby causing misses
in the field.
Check the following areas for air leaks:
- Tank clean-out door
- Metering body assembly seals
- Collector assembly seals
- Tank lid
Tank Low in Product
• Refill tank before metering wheels are exposed.
• The metering wheels must be completely covered
to avoid unseeded strips.

Operating Guidelines - Continued
Monitor
• Familiarize yourself with all monitor functions.
• Ensure all monitor “settings” are correctly set for the
air cart/seeding tool combination.
• Recognize and correct alarm conditions as indicated
on the machine.
• Check all wire harness connections for corrosion and
use a dielectric spray to clean. Inspect all sensors
for proper gap.
MONITOR N44049 Shown
General Field Operation
• Follow guidelines outlined in “Operating Guidelines”.
• Switch monitor on.
• Start fan.
Note: Load sensing hydraulic systems require
“warming up” before they function smoothly.
See “Hydraulic Fan Drive” for more details.
• Move forward with seeding tool.
• Engage metering system clutch (MAIN).
• Lower seeding tool into ground.
• Turning at headland: Switch metering system clutch
off (MAIN), immediately raise seeding tool fully
rephasing hydraulics (see seeding tool manual).
• Once turned engage metering system clutch (MAIN)
and lower seeding tool into ground.
Note: Do not attempt to meter product when fan is
not running. Damage to the metering wheels
may occur.
Note: It takes a minimum of 15 feet (5 m) of forward
travel @ 6 mph (10 kph) before product
reaches the seed openers. Forward travel
should be equal to half the width of the
seeding tool. [i.e. for a 40 ft (14 m) wide
seeding tool the forward travel should be a
minimum of 20 feet (7 m).]

Monitor
Introduction
The monitor utilizes a multiplexed data communication
system to monitor the functions of the Air Cart. In the
multiplexed system, all sensors communicate with the
monitor on the same three wires.
The system can monitor and display status of the
following functions:
• Fan speed
• Ground speed
• Shaft speeds (up to 4)
• Bin levels (up to 4)
• Flow Blockage (up to 192 runs)
An audio alarm will sound upon detection of: low or high
fan speed, low shaft speed, low bin level and failure of
sensors. Also, loss of flow in any runs that are being
monitored with Blockage Modules will generate alarms.
Audio alarms persist until the alarm condition is removed
or until the alarm is acknowledged by the operator by
pressing the appropriate soft key.
MONITOR - N44049
In addition, the monitor can determine and display:
• Field Area
• Total Area
• Application Rate (weight per unit area) (VRT systems
only)
The monitor allows the following settings to be changed:
• High and Low fan speed alarm point
• Low shaft speed alarm point for 4 meter shafts
• Ground speed pulses per 400 ft and pulses per
revolution
• Pulses per revolution of fan and 4 meter shafts
• Low bin alarm for 4 bins
• The number of Blockage Modules that are connected
to the monitor
• The width of the implement
• Imperial or metric units
• English or Russian language
The settings listed above, as well as field and
accumulated areas are stored in nonvolatile memory.
This means that the information is retained even when
power is disconnected.
Two cables exit the rear of the monitor. There is a two
wire power cable that connects to the tractor power
supply. The other is a three wire cable that brings power
and communications to the remote sensors through the
main harness.

Sensor Installation
The installation procedure is required to configure the
monitor to the sensors attached to it.
Note: Each monitor is unique to the sensors installed.
If monitor is moved to another Air Cart it has to
be reprogrammed to match the sensors.
The operator may have to redo the installation if:
1) An extra tank is added to the Air Cart.
2) Replacing or adding sensors.
3) Replacing monitor with a new monitor.
Sensor Installation Order
Installation Precautions
Speed (Ground)
Fan 1
1) During installation the monitor has a predetermined
order in which it wants the sensors attached. The
installer must be sure that the proper sensor is
plugged in the proper sequence.
Fan 2
Shaft 1
i.e. If during installation the installer plugs in the
Front Shaft and Ground Speed sensors in the
wrong order, the monitor would not know this.
The monitor would interpret Front Shaft rpm
from the Ground Speed shaft and vice versa.
Shaft 2
Shaft 3
Shaft 4
Tank 1
2) There may be occasions when the operator will not
have use of all the sensors.
i) During sensor installation when the monitor
prompts for an unused sensor to be plugged in,
the operator can press the SELECT key to skip
over the sensor. The sensor will be assigned
a disabled status. A sensor disabled by this
method can only be enabled by repeating the
installation procedure.
Tank 2
Tank 3
Tank 4
VarCon (Variable Rate)
(Unit calls for installation only if var controller is installed)
Optical Blockage Modules
ii)During operation the operator can disable shaft
sensors by setting the pulses per revolution to
zero. When pulses are set to zero alarms for that
sensor and corresponding Bin Level sensor are
ignored and no monitoring occurs.
3)Blockage modules attached to the harness are
handled differently than the sensors attached to the
harness. See Assembly Section “Blockage Module”.
Optical Sensors - the blockage modules have to
be unplugged from the harness before sensor
installation can be performed and are connected like
the other sensors requested by the monitor during
sensor installation.

Monitor
Alarms
Introduction
All configured sensors and various other operating
conditions are continuously monitored. Alarms fall into
one of the following three categories:
• Sensor alarms are alarms which are generated
when information returned by a sensor exceeds the
appropriate threshold.
• Communication alarms occur when a sensor
repeatedly does not respond to attempts at
communication.
• System alarms are for various other conditions that
are found to be in fault.
When an alarm condition occurs the monitor will beep
repeatedly and an alarm screen will pop up indicating
the fault condition.
Alarm Screen
The audio alarm and alarm screen persist until the
alarm condition is fixed or until it is acknowledged by
the operator. Follow the steps on the screen to fix or
acknowledge the alarm.
After acknowledgement, the “Operating Screen” will be
displayed with any unfixed alarms shown in the “active
alarm window”. If there are more than one acknowledged
alarms, they will cycle on the display.
When the alarm condition is corrected, the alarm
notification is removed and ground speed will again be
displayed in bottom window.
Nuisance Shaft Alarm
Low application rates of Canola may cause the seed
shaft to rotate less than 2 rpm.
Alarm - Operating Screen
The low shaft rpm will cause the monitor to give a shaft
alarm, since the shaft is rotating below the defalt alarm
threshold of 2 rpm.
To avoid this nuisance alarm change the seed shaft low
rpm alarm setting to 0.5 rpm.
Note: Change the setting back to 2 rpm when
returning to higher application rates.
6-20
Note:To “TURN OFF” any shaft not in use set
pulses to 0. This will eliminate any nuisance
alarms caused by an inactive shaft. Also the
corresponding bin should be “Disabled” to
eliminate any nuisance alarms caused by an
empty bin.
January 2015
9s Series Air Cart
Monitor
Alarms - Continued
“In Motion” Notification
The “In Motion” condition means that the monitor, based
on ground speed and clutch state, considers that the
system is supposed to be actively seeding.
1
The monitor emits a double beep whenever the “In
Motion” condition becomes true or false. This condition
is defined as speed greater than 2 mph (3.2 Kph) and
drive clutch engaged.
1. If ground speed is less than 2 mph (3.2 Kph) for more
than 30 seconds the monitor will alarm and display
“Should be Seeding”.
2. If ground speed is greater than 2 mph (3.2 Kph) for
more than 30 seconds and clutch is not engaged the
monitor will alarm and display “Clutch Switch is Off”.
2
3. Certain alarms are inhibited when the “In Motion”
condition is false. These are described elsewhere in
this manual, but an example is whether to generate
an alarm for a stopped shaft.
If a speed sensor is unavailable the speed is considered
to be greater than 2MPH for the purpose of this variable.
This allows metering shaft monitoring to work normally,
as if there were motion.
Low Fan Alarms
Low fan alarms are handled differently because a
stopped fan can result in damage to the metering
mechanics as unblown material accumulates. Low fan
alarms can not be acknowledged while the system
is “in motion”. Thus, if a low fan alarm occurs during
active seeding, the user will not be able to silence
the alarm with the soft key, but will need to stop the
vehicle or disengage the clutch. When this happens,
the monitor accepts it as an acknowledgement of the
alarm, and an effective “automatic acknowledge” takes
place, resulting in the beeper being silenced and the
resumption of normal display with “Fan Low RPM”
flashing in the alarm window.

Module Installation
When blockage sensing systems are used, modules
must be installed in the system, runs per module set,
and calibration done while seeding.
Note: When optical modules are added, they must
be learned by the monitor. See the “Sensor
Installation”.
Runs per Module Setup
The number of runs connected per blockage module
must be set in order for the system to operate correctly.
This should only need to be done when the blockage
modules are first installed, and afterwards only if the
number of sensors is changed.

Trouble Shooting Guide
Most electronic problems are usually one of the
following:
• Harness connections.
• Damaged harness wires.
• Loose terminal in harness plug.
• Sensor to Actuator clearance.
• Defective sensor.
The monitor will alert the operator of these problems as
a communication error.
Checking Harness
First, check for the obvious things like broken connections,
loose terminals, insulation rubbed off and so forth.
• Check continuity of wires with ohm meter.
Checking Sensors
The best approach to testing a sensor is to substitute a
suspected sensor with a known good one. If the problem
goes away, the sensor is faulty. If it does not go away,
it is faulty wiring.
Bin Level Sensors ensure there is no foreign material
covering the optical sensor. Remove material with a
cloth as not to damage lens.
Make sure sensor wires are not damaged.
Checking Blockage System
Check modules by performing a blockage module test
on the monitor.
Optical sensors make sure the “optical eyes” are not
coated with material or worn down. Remove material
with a cloth as not to damage lens.
Pin sensors make sure there is no buildup of material
on the pins. Remove material buildup with a knife and
gently scraping away the material buildup.
Make sure sensor wires are not damaged.

Lubrication
Greasing pivot points prevents wear and helps restrict
dirt from entering. However, once dirt does enter a
bearing, it combines with the lubricant and becomes an
abrasive grinding paste, more destructive than grit alone.
• Apply new lubricant frequently during operation to
flush out old contaminated lubricant.
• Use a good grade of lithium based grease.
• Use a good grade of machine oil.
• Clean grease fittings and lubricator gun before
applying lubricant.

Air Delivery System
General
The air delivery system of all Air Carts is extremely
important for the proper metering of product to the
openers. The metering system on all pressurized Air
Carts is sensitive to air leaks. Loss of tank air pressure
could affect feed rates, which could become erratic
or even stop.
Caution
Care should be taken when
working near the Air Cart while
the fan is running. Product
blowing out of the system
could cause personal injury.
• Regularly check that all hoses are free from kinks
or blockages throughout the day. To check for
blockages raise seeding tool out of the ground and
with the fan running turn crank a couple of turns.
Equal amounts of material should be deposited under
each boot if not check the following for blockage:
1.Seed openers and secondary hoses.
2.Divider heads by removing access doors.
3.Primary hoses and collectors.
4.Metering wheels for damage to key-way and the
flutes of the wheel.
• Keep fan inlet screen clear and free from debris.
• Place a plastic bag over the fan when the unit is not
in use. This helps prevent moisture from entering
the system.
• Check periodically and at the end of each season
for air leaks at hose connections.
• Check periodically and at the end of each season
for air leaks at the following:
1.Tank Lid Seals.
2.Metering body shaft seals.
3.Metering body to tank seals.
4.Collector to metering body seals.
5.Fan to plenum.
6.Plenum to collector.
7.Clean-out doors, for leaks and loss of seal memory.
8.Collector door seals.
9.Diverter Valves.
10. Couplers between seeder and cultivator.
11. Access Doors on Divider Heads.
Note: Extended life can be obtained if the hoses
are rotated 1/4 turn once a year.
Note: There must not be any air leaks from the tank.
This air leakage causes air turbulence in the
tank which can result in inaccurate metering
rates.
• Once a year check for wear of primary and secondary
hoses.

Tank Lids
The lid seal is probably the area that sees the most
abuse due to the activity associated with filling the tanks.
Important
With each fill the lid seals should be inspected for cuts,
abrasions, debris in the seal and ensure the seal is
positioned properly on the steel rim around the tank
opening.
It is imperative that no air leaks occur in the
Air Cart tank as even the smallest air leak from
the lid will lead to material bridging in the tank
thereby causing misses in the field.
Tank Lid Adjustment
Check Tank Lid tension on all tanks at beginning of each
season and periodically during season for air leaks.
The following checks and adjustments must be made
to prevent air leaks from occurring:
• Check for any foreign material embedded into seal.
Clean out foreign material from seal surface.
Note: When Air Cart is not in use, leave lid latches
loose to help maintain resilience of the seals.
• Check seal for cuts and abrasions. If seal is cut or
severely worn, then replace seal.
• Ensure seal is positioned properly on steel rim around
tank opening.
• Use a 0 - 100 lb. (45 kg) spring scale to check the tank
lid opening force. With the lid closed place one end of
the scale one inch from the end of the tank lid lever.
Pull straight up on the scale and note the maximum
force it takes to open the lid. The force needed to
open the lid must be greater than 65 lbs (29 kg).
Adjust the lid latch adjusting bolt as necessary. The
lid latch should close with a snap. This will ensure
that the lid is sufficiently tight and prevent any leaks.
• Re-check for leaks. If lids still leak turn down bolt
one or two more turns. Re-check for leaks.
Note: This bolt should be loose enough
to allow lid to float in the slot.
9s Series Air Cart These bolts and lock nuts must be tightened
to maintain a friction fit so the lid latch stays
stationary when in open position.

Air Leak Check
It is imperative that no air leaks occur in the Air Cart
tank. Any air leaks could cause loss of tank air pressure
affecting feed rates, which could become erratic or stop.
Important
To prevent this from occurring, it is strongly recommended
that a pressure test be conducted prior to seeding
time. This can be performed very easily and simply by
completing the following steps:
It is imperative that no air leaks occur in the
Air Cart tank, as even the smallest air leak will
lead to material bridging in the tank, thereby
causing misses in the field.
• Clean fan impeller and adjust tank lids.
• Disconnect the 2 1/2” (64 mm) diameter primary
hoses from the rear of the cultivator at the primary
hose coupler(s) by loosening the four 3/8” bolts.
• Install the blank off plate that is supplied with the Air
Cart at each coupler and retighten the 3/8” bolts. If
the blank off plates are not readily at hand a piece
of cardboard can be used in its place.
• Once the blank off plates have been installed, start
the fan and run at 4,500 rpm.
Check the following areas for air leaks:
1.Tank lid seals.
2.Metering body shaft seals.
3.Metering body to tank seals.
4.Collector to metering body seals.
5.Fan to plenum and plenum to collector.
6.Clean-out doors, for leaks and loss of seal memory.
7.Collector door seals.
8.Diverter valves and double shoot mounting plates.
9.Tanks union plate.
10.Tank site glasses.
Note: When Air Cart is not in use leave lid latches
and clean-out doors loose to help maintain
resilience of the seals.
Air leaks can be detected by spraying a soapy water
solution onto the seal area. If bubbling of soap occurs,
the seal has a leak. Another method is to use your
hand to feel for any air movement around the seal. This
method requires a calm day, as the wind can make it
difficult to detect a small leak.
• If any of the above areas leak, remove the parts and
replace the seal. Ensure upon reassembly that the
parts are tightened sufficiently to prevent air leakage.
• Remove the blank off plates before using the Air Cart.
Once the pressure test is complete, check the following
areas for air leaks:
11. Couplers between seeder and cultivator.
12. Access doors on divider heads.

Fan
Debris can build up on the fan screen and blades
causing reduced output of the fan. The lack of air flow
even at higher fan speeds will cause material plugging
of the air system.
The build up of material during operation can cause
the following:
1. Fan rpm will increase without increasing oil flow to
orbit motor.
2. Air Cart distribution system plugging from a lack of
air flow (Increasing fan rpm has little or no effect).
Fan Screen
• Ensure fan screen is clear of debris. Check
periodically through the day.
Fan Impeller
The fan blades may become plugged under high
humidity/dusty conditions/high insect counts.
Material on the Fan Blades
Under severe conditions the fan blades should be
inspected daily and cleaned as required.
Under normal conditions the fan should be inspected
and cleaned at least once a season.
• Care should be taken in cleaning all fan blades
thoroughly to restore the fans peak performance.
• Ensure that the balance clips located on the fan
blades are not removed, as this will put the fan out
of balance.
Storage
To prevent water entering the air system, cover the fan
intake with a plastic bag, whenever the seeder is not
in use.
Note: Be sure to remove fan cover prior to starting
fan. Serious damage could result to the fan.
9s Series Air Cart Note: Material build up on the fan blades could
cause the fan to be out of balance. The added
vibration of the out of balance impeller will
reduce the life of the fan components.

Impeller Clearance
The impeller should be centred inside the housing to
avoid contact between the impeller and housing.
The distance “X” between the impeller and housing
inlet, when centred, will be approximately 3/8” (9 mm)
to 1/2” (12 mm).
When assembling fan ensure flange surfaces
of housing are clean.
Apply a 1/4” (6 mm) silicone bead to one
flange surface of housing including outlet
seam.
Mate surfaces and secure in place with 1/4” x 1”
hex bolts (G) and 1/4” serrated lock nuts (H).
Note: Torque 1/4” bolts to 49 in. lb.
Set clearance “X” between the impeller and
housing inlet from 3/8” (9mm) to 1/2” (12 mm).
Hoses
Inspect air delivery hoses for wear and replace as
required. Check areas where hoses maybe exposed to
moving parts such as hitch hinge area. At the Air Cart
hitch area, place a piece of 2 1/2” (64 mm) hose 12”
(305 mm) long over top of the two hitch extension pins
to protect air hoses from contacting pins.
Also, inspect hoses for blockage as rodents/birds may
nest in hoses that have not been properly capped during
storage.
To optimize the 9s Series Air Cart air system on single
shoot units the difference in length between the longest
primary hose and the shortest primary hose should not
exceed six feet.
In conjunction with this, it is important to eliminate the
use of the centre port of the plenum. Check plenum
hose routing, if centre port of the plenum is used change
hose location.

Hydraulic Orbit Motor
The motor requires no maintenance itself.
It does, however, require clean oil so the tractor hydraulic
filters must be replaced regularly.
Repair/Replacement
• Remove orbit motor from the fan.
Note: The shaft should never be hammered on or
forced in as this will result in motor damage
upon startup.
• Remove the snap ring and front cover.
• Push out the old shaft seal and press in the new one.
Note: The bearings should never be removed from
the shaft as they are pretensioned to the shaft
with the motor spinning.
SEAL
• Replace the O ring.
• Both the O ring and shaft seal should be greased
with a “very clean” grease.
SNAP RING
O-RING
• Care must be taken when the front cover is installed
so the shaft seal is not damaged.
• Reinstall the snap ring.
• Fill the motor case with “clean” oil before running.
Note: Any time a motor is replaced the case must
be filled with oil before it is started, if not, a
bearing failure could occur.
Clutch
A torque of 80 ft-lbs (108 N-m) - 100 ft-lbs (135 N-m) is
required to slip the clutch.
To check clutch for slippage check the following:
• Check friction plates for corrosion and buff with a
wire wheel if necessary.
• Check clutch coil resistance. If the meter reads below
2.40 ohms or above 2.90 ohms, then the clutch has
failed and needs to be replaced.
• Check clutch current draw. If the meter reads below
4 amps, there is a problem in the electrical system
leading to the clutch.
Note: All values taken at room temperature.
Voltage at 12 VDC. As temperature increases,
resistance increases, and current decreases.
• Check clutch side play. If there is movement on the
shaft between the two clutch halves, adjust using
N31040 shim washers.

Hydraulics
Refer to Section 1 regarding hydraulic safety. In addition:
• Inspect hydraulic system for leaks, damaged hoses
and loose fittings.
• Damaged Hoses and hydraulic tubing can only
be repaired by replacement. DO NOT ATTEMPT
REPAIRS WITH TAPE OR CEMENTS. High
pressure will burst such repairs and cause system
failure and possible injury.
• Leaking cylinders - install a new seal kit.
Contact your nearest Dealer for genuine repair parts.
Dealers carry ample stocks and are backed by the
manufacturer and regional associations.
• Fittings - use liquid Teflon on all NPT hydraulic joints.
Do not use liquid Teflon or Teflon tape on JIC or
ORB ends.
• Hydraulic Hose Connections - when connecting the
hoses to the cylinders, tubing, etc. always use one
wrench to keep the hose from twisting and another
wrench to tighten the union. Excessive twisting will
shorten hose life.
Caution
Dirt in the hydraulic system could damage
O-rings, causing leakage, pressure loss and
total system failure.
• Keep fittings and couplers clean.
• Check the Tractor Manual for proper filter replacement
schedule.
Refer to the Trouble Shooting Section.
Note: Extreme care must be taken to maintain
a clean hydraulic system. Use only new
hydraulic fluid when filling reservoir.
Warning
HIGH-PRESSURE FLUID HAZARD
To prevent serious injury or death:
• Relieve pressure on hydraulic system before servicing
or disconnecting hoses.
•
Wear proper hand and eye protection when searching for
leaks. Use wood or cardboard instead of hands.
• Keep all components in good repair.

Front Castor Brake Adjustment
The Dual Axle Front Castor is equipped with a brake
which prevents the tires from shimmy under normal
operation. It is important the front castor brake be
properly adjusted. If the brake is not adjusted correctly
the tires will shimmy excessively and may cause the
axle assembly to fail.
Adjust the castor brake as follows:
• Check and ensure there is no paint/grease where
the brake pad rides, as the paint/grease will reduce
the effectiveness of the brake.
• Inspect brake pad (N25465) ensuring it is not
damaged or worn, replace if required.
Note: Maximum allowable wear is 1/8” (6 mm). (New
pad is 3/8” (9 mm) thick)
• Check and ensure the hex socket brake pad
mounting screws (N25463) are securely tightened.
• Check preload on castor fork top pivot bearings
(with brake pad assembled loosely). Tighten as
required using wheel bearing tightening procedure
(springs will compress to a length of approximately
2 3/8”[60 mm]).
• Adjust the jam nuts until the spring length is 2-1/8”
(54 mm). See Below.
• Increase the spring pressure on the brake to stop
the castor wheels from shimming in the field or on
the road.
Note: Do not overtighten the springs. Excessive
spring pressure will prevent wheels from
castoring.
Note: Tighten jam nuts until the spring
length is 2 1/8” (54 mm)
Important
Dual wheel brake will provide sufficient
pressure to stabilize castor at all travel
speeds up to 18 m.p.h. (28 kph). Avoid setting
more pressure on brake pad than required
to maintain stability. Tow only with all tanks
empty. If a unit must be towed loaded over a
short distance, the transport speed must be
reduced to 10 m.p.h. (16kph) or slower.
