The right hand clutch operates clockwise and the left hand clutch operates counterclockwise. Therefore, some of the
parts of the clutch such as the wrap spring differ from one side of the planter to the other. Be sure to use the correct
repair part if a clutch must be repaired.

The control box is equipped with a resettable circuit breaker.
To reset the circuit breaker, press the red button on the circuit
breaker until it snaps into place. If the circuit breaker continues
to trip, check to see what is causing it to trip. See “Point Row
Clutch Troubleshooting”.

If the circuit breaker on the control box is not tripped, determine if the problem is electrical or mechanical. Place the
operational switch in the RIGHT or LEFT position. Check the clutch and wiring harness for power with a test light or
volt meter. If the solenoid is operating properly, the plunger on the solenoid will retract causing a clicking sound. The
plunger will also be magnetized which can be checked by touching the plunger with a metal object.


Each wing hinge is equipped with a cam follower which floats
against a curved guide on the center frame. Check cam
followers periodically and maintain adjustment as shown below.

NOTE: Always check cam follower adjustment and make
cam follower adjustments with the planter on a flat surface
and lowered to the planting position.

To adjust cam followers:

1. Loosen ¾" cap screw on cam follower.
2. Using a ½" ratchet extension, rotate and hold cam follower

in place.

3. Torque ¾" cap screw to 150 ft. lbs.
