Row Unit Operation
Eccentric bushings in the wheel arm stop allow for lateral adjustment of covering discs/single press wheel assembly.
Use a ¾" wrench to loosen hardware attaching closing wheel arm to wheel arm stop. Use another ¾" wrench to turn
eccentric bushings until covering discs/single press wheel assembly
is aligned with seed trench. Tighten hardware. Two
sets of holes in mounting arm locate covering discs for staggered or side-by-side operation. Five sets of holes in each
disc bracket allow ½" incremental blade depth adjustment. Slotted holes in disc mount and bracket allow for 0° - 15°
blade angle adjustment. Adjust covering discs on all row units to similar settings.
Check operation of covering discs/single press wheels after adjusting planting depth. Initial press wheel down force spring
setting is 2½" between mounting arm tab and locking nut. Loosen ½" locking nut and turn adjusting bolt in to increase
down force or out to decrease down force. Tighten locking nut against spring plug. Adjust all row units to a similar setting.
